This condition, which leads to a slight level of oxidative stress in the body, is perceived by the organism as a threat. As a result, enzymes involved in defense systems called antioxidants are stimulated and the affected area is enriched with oxygen and cleansed of toxins.
In order for the mechanism of action of ozone gas to work correctly, it is critical to correctly calculate the treatment dose to be applied. All treatment attempts to be applied with this chemical molecule, which has a toxic effect at high concentrations, must necessarily be carried out under the supervision of a specialist and patients should be closely monitored for the specified period of time.
How is Ozone Therapy Applied?
When determining the method of application of ozone therapy, many factors are taken into account, such as the person's illness, the severity of the disease, the presence of concomitant diseases. Systemic application is generally preferred in the presence of circulatory system disorders, diabetes-related angiopathy tables, acute or chronic viral infection conditions, health problems associated with immunosuppression, musculoskeletal diseases with chronic inflammation and rheumatological diseases. The method called major autohemotherapy is the most commonly preferred systemic application method, but; in line with the factors mentioned above, systemic administration methods such as minor autohemotherapy, rectal insufflation, direct intraarterial and direct intravenous may also be preferred.
While the major autohemotherapy method is applied, 50 to 100 ml of blood is taken from the patient and this blood is enriched with ozone outside the body. Then the blood protected by special systems is returned to the patient at the appropriate speed. Since the contact of ozone gas with blood is carried out outside the body, this method is considered the lowest-risk method of application. In addition, there are treatment methods in which ozone gas can be applied to, rectum, bladder, vagina, skin and many other tissues of the body.
