Ozone IV therapy is the special of the month for November and December here at Edge! There’s no better time to boost your immune system and step up your energy levels than right before and during a busy holiday season.
What is Ozone therapy? It is a medical treatment that has been around since the 1840’s. It was first used as a disinfectant for hospitals and operating rooms. Because of its antibacterial properties, it was used in World War I for cleaning wounds. Medical ozone is produced when oxygen is passed through an electrical coil – giving it 3 atoms and changing it from O2 to O3. Medical ozone has a wide range of healing properties and has been proven to kill viruses, bacteria, fungi, plaque, and cancer cells. It also improves joint and muscle pain and can help with eye and skin conditions.
Ozone IV therapy is a process in which approximately 250ml of blood is drawn into an IV bag, then ozone is injected into the drawn blood – turning it from a dark maroon color to a bright and vibrant red! The supercharged ozonated blood is then reintroduced into the body via IV drip. To enhance the benefits and see even more results, the blood can be exposed to ultra-violet light before it is re-introduced (Ultraviolet Blood Irradiation Therapy). This process takes approximately 45 minutes to an hour.
When the blood is supercharged with ozone, the list of benefits to your body are almost endless! The introduction of ozone into the blood stream raises its overall oxygen level and stimulates the production of white blood cells – which boosts the immune system. The ozone will stay in the bloodstream for long periods of time, so the benefits continue well after the initial therapy. The increased oxygen at the cellular level also has a natural anti-inflammatory affect on organs and tissues and increases the body’s ability to fight infection. Overall, your body will function more efficiently, and you will feel the difference!
Ozone therapy has been around and heavily studied for decades! Its effects are proven, safe, consistent, and with minimal side effects. Our clients have seen an increase in energy, decrease in pain and just an overall improvement in day-to day activities lasting up to 3-4 weeks after treatment.
