When you hear the word ozone, it might bring to mind the atmosphere, but ozone doesn’t just occur in the sky. Ozone (O3) is an allotrope of oxygen and the strongest naturally occurring oxidant around. Years of research indicates that ozone can be safely administered in a variety of ways to help enhance oxygen levels in the blood, kill bacteria, heal wounds, resolve back pain and orthopedic injuries, and so much more.
You might be surprised to learn that ozone therapy has been in use since at least WWI, when German doctors applied it to patients in the trenches to disinfect wounds. Today, several published articles indicate the tremendous healing power and low risk of ozone therapy, due to its immune boosting and microbicidal effects. In one case report in Medical Gas Research, ozone therapy by itself was able to “quickly and completely resolve a rapidly advancing case of tick bite cellulitis,” (and there are many other success stories, as noted in the sources at the end of this blog).
