Ozone is a naturally occurring gas consisting of three oxygen atoms which make up the ‘ozone layer’, Earth’s protective barrier from the Sun’s ultraviolet radiation. The gas is colourless and has an acrid odour. One can smell Ozone immediately after a serious downpour, storm or lightning.
Ozone Therapy is the administration of medical grade ozone/oxygen gas to the patient’s body in order to address a wide range of health conditions. At the Poseidonia Medical Centre, Ozone is delivered to our patients in a number of different ways according to the condition being treated:
intravenously, via rectal or bagged zones, drinking water or direct injections.
For musculoskeletal conditions, Ozone may be injected into ligaments, tendons, joint capsules and joint spaces.
Ozone Therapy simultaneously destroys cells that have been damaged by infection or chronic inflammation, it also stimulates the defence mechanisms of healthy cells.
Ozone Therapy is effective for regulating the immune system and is of great benefit to anyone suffering from allergies, autoimmune conditions, or inflammatory conditions (the root cause of many chronic diseases).
The half live of Ozone is approximately 40-mins therefore the ozonized solution is prepared immediately before the treatment. The time of the procedure is 20 minutes.
Ozone Therapy is used to treat many different diseases as well as to rejuvenate the body and increase resistance to aggressive environmental factors and stresses.
Numerous studies show the effectiveness and safety of ozone. In Europe Ozone Therapy has had regular Medical useage for over 50 years with little or no side effects.
