Our treatment plans can be used both to improve bodily function and quality of life for people who are already well and to aid rest and recovery for individuals suffering from health problems such as cancer and autoimmune diseases. If you live with an autoimmune disease and are sick of harsh, side-effect-ridden medications, ozone therapy may be able to help.

How Does Ozone Work?

Medical professionals have long been harnessing the power of ozone – there are accounts tracing back to 1840 of ozone being utilized to disinfect operating rooms and even to clean wounds during World War I. Part of ozone‚Äôs appeal is that it doesn’t rely on chemicals to take antibiotic effect. While normal oxygen has a molecular structure of 2 oxygen atoms (O2), ozone is composed of three oxygen atoms (O3). This third atom makes the compound slightly unstable, the effect being that when ozone comes in contact with a bacteria or other pathogen, the third oxygen atom breaks off and oxidizes the phospholipids and lipoproteins in the cell wall of the pathogen, effectively destroying it.

Ozone Therapy For Autoimmune Diseases

Thanks to these qualities, ozone therapy can be an effective treatment for autoimmune diseases including Lyme Disease and Lupus. When circulated throughout the blood, ozone stimulates the immune system by promoting the release of certain proteins and hormones that cause the body to “rebalance” its immune responses. In many cases, this can improve and even alleviate symptoms without the frustrating side-effects that accompany many conventional treatment plans.
