Ozone therapy uses the ozone gas - an active oxygen molecule - in order to provide the tissues and cells with necessary oxygen. An ozone therapist or a specialist physician determines the total amount of dose in accordance with the patient’s condition and medical indication.
» BODY APPLICATIONS
Ozone therapy is applied in three ways:
Administering blood to the muscle: 5-10 ml of venous blood is drawn and mixed with ozone gas. Next, the treated blood is injected to the hip or the arm.
Infusing blood into vein: 5-10 ml of venous blood is drawn and mixed with ozone gas in special bottles. Next, the blood is slowly injected into the vein.
Ozone Mesotherapy: Ozone mesotherapy involves injecting the ozone directly to the target organ using fine needles that are punctured to the skin at certain angles in order to treat the target zone. The aim is to activate the immune system through the impact effects of the needles and to affect the target organ directly by boosting the blood supply and regulating the capillary circulation.
Treatment Areas of Ozone Therapy
Ozone Therapy for Cellulite
Ozone helps the cellulite through different mechanisms. It interacts with the double bonds of polyunsaturated fatty acids and allows them to break up. Hydrophobic fats are converted into less stable hydrophilic fats and they are excreted from the body through the effect of oxygen. Furthermore, it increases the oxygen-carrying capacity of red blood cells and improves the blood circulation in capillary vessels. Thus, metabolisms of the adipose tissues are normalized. Ozone therapy for regional weight loss is one of the best methods to increase the metabolic rate. It regulates the blood glucose, prevents hunger crisis, and strengthens the cellular regulation that allows the organism to produce energy from the fats. Moreover, it increases the blood circulation of the skin as well as the brain and muscles and allows the body to be oxygenated to get the energy better.
Ozone Therapy for Anti-Aging: General well-being given by ozone through the metabolic activation of red and white blood cells provides people with a sense of rejuvenation.
Ozone Therapy for Stress and Chronic Fatigue: Business stress, intensive work program as well as mental and physical fatigue can be eliminated effectively with ozone therapy. This therapy is ideal especially for professional athletes. Ozone increases the physical endurance. In chronic fatigue syndrome, ozone provides significant improvements and eliminates the negative effects caused by the disease in the body, starting at the cellular level. Daily life stress, busy work schedule, occupational problems, industrial food products, environmental pollution, nicotine, alcohol, coffee, magnetic pollution, unhealthy life style and nutrition, and sedentary life as well as diseases and infections are the principal underlying causes of stress. Ozone allows the stress hormone - adrenaline - to be eliminated in the body.
Other medical conditions that the ozone therapy helps include cancer, fungal infections of skin, infectious skin lesions, wound care, viral diseases, Hepatitis A, B or C, arthritic / rheumatoid diseases, and chronic polyarthritis.
Ozone therapy is not an option for the patients with severe anemia and some hereditary diseases related to the blood (blood coagulation diseases). Furthermore, ozone is not recommended for the patients with hyperthyroidism that is a condition characterized by over-production of thyroid hormone in the thyroid gland. Recently developed myocardial infarction and some diseases in which bleeding is active are the diseases that are incompatible with ozone therapy.
