The use of oxygen therapy for the purposes of treating certain health ailments and improving overall health is well established. Oxygen therapies have been used to treat numerous kinds of diseases including chronic pulmonary obstructive disease (COPD). Increased levels of oxygen have also been shown to have a direct effect on the immune system. Ozone therapy is a type of oxygen therapy that increases oxygen levels in the body in a very innovative way.
What Is Ozone Gas?
Ozone gas is a colorless gas with a strong odor that contains oxygen in a different form than the kind you’re breathing right now. Ozone gas is composed of three oxygen molecules, unlike the regular oxygen we breathe, which has two oxygen molecules. The higher levels of oxygen can have a strengthening and fortifying effect on the systems and organs of the body, including the brain.
After a thunderstorm, you can go outside and breathe in some of this electrically activated oxygen for yourself. You’ll notice that the air has a more pungent aroma to it. One of the reasons for this odor is the higher levels of oxygen molecules in the air. This is one of the best times to go outside and take some deep, slow breaths.
Ozone Therapy Strengthens the Immune System
- Advanced detoxing and oxygenation treatments
- Anti-aging and beauty benefits
- Improving athletic performance
- Aiding in recovery/pain relief
- Treating certain diseases
Ozone gas has a mildly agitating but harmless effect on the cells of the body because of the unstable nature of the oxygen molecules. However, the cells are agitated just enough to strengthen them. The oxygen levels in the blood will rise and the body has a chance to absorb this oxygen, recuperate and get stronger.
How We Administer Ozone Gas
Ozone gas can be breathed in and absorbed by the skin as well. Our patients are placed in a protective covering, similar to a sauna. The gas is released and absorbed by the skin. We use the HOCATT Ozone Steam Sauna to administer ozone therapy. The treatment is customizable for your concerns, as well as being very relaxing.
