Ozone is a colorless gas made up of three oxygen atoms. It is used as an alternative therapy to improve the body’s intake and use of oxygen and to activate the immune system.
Ozone therapy is used to disinfect and treat diseases by limiting the effects of bacteria, viruses, fungi, yeast, and protozoa.
Although ozone is a gas, developments in technology mean it can be
used in several forms and different ways, including:
-Ozonated olive oil applied directly to the body
-Insufflation, a risky therapy where ozone is blown into the rectum
-Ozonated water, which is drunk
-Injections, which are often used in dentistry
-Autohemotherapy, where blood is withdrawn, mixed with ozone, and put
back into the bloodstream
