Ozone IV Therapy for Inflammation in Lake NormanDec 30, 2023 12:29PM ● By Melissa Lynch
Inflammation, a biological response in the tissues in the body caused by pathogens, damaged cells or irritants, can be caused by a variety of factors. It is a protective attempt to remove the stimuli and initiate healing. Chronic inflammation can result if the irritant or stimulant is not removed.
Bacteria, viruses, fungi and infection can also cause chronic inflammation. Another major cause of inflammation is an autoimmune disorder where the system attacks the body’s own organs. These include rheumatoid arthritis, ulcerative colitis, Crohn’s disease, psoriasis and idiopathic pulmonary fibrosis.
Extracorporeal blood oxygenation and ozone (EBOO) therapy, commonly referred to as ozone dialysis, can treat inflammation. It involves the passive exposure of up to half of a patient’s blood volume being passed through a dialysis membrane where the ozone is introduced and circulated, mimicking the body’s natural heart pumping process.
In addition to healthy lifestyle choices to reduce chronic inflammation such as healthy weight, not smoking, exercise, limited alcohol consumption and healthy diet, EBOO therapy can be a catalyst to rid the body of the source of inflammation. The number of treatments and outcome is dependent on the individual. Customized treatment plans are optimal to alleviate symptoms.
