Ozone therapy. It has nothing to do with the offensive zone. It actually has to do with oxygen, specifically the oxygen in your blood. Perhaps you’ve heard of Ozone therapy or maybe not. Maybe you’re thinking of getting Ozone therapy but are wondering: does this treatment hurt? Keep reading and you’ll get your answer.
Just what is Ozone therapy?
It offers patients a large span of potential benefits which include possibly helping their body heal from stress, illness, or injury by pumping up their natural healing abilities. How it does this is by increasing the level of oxygen in a patient’s bloodstream.
There are two types of treatments related to this therapy. One type is called Major Autohemotherapy. In this treatment, the patient has highly purified ozone put into their bloodstream, which increases oxygen levels in their body. The other type of treatment is named 10 Pass Hyperbaric Ozone therapy. In this treatment, the patient’s blood is drawn, infused with rich and pure ozone, then returned to their system. It’s called 10 Pass because the recommended number of passes that a patient receive for full benefits is 10 passes. It is then recommended they continue with maintenance treatment. That is all variable based on the patient’s condition at initial treatment.
So let’s answer the question posed at the start of the blog: does Ozone therapy hurt?
Well, that answer is not one-size-fits-all. Not everyone has the same response to getting blood drawn. But very likely it will not cause too much discomfort. In fact, because Ozone therapy is an effective and powerful treatment, and a natural one, you are more likely to feel rejuvenated and possibly healthier when you feel the boost of oxygen in your system after you receive the treatment.
Plus, it’s not just rejuvenation that a patient may feel after treatment. Ozone Therapy may even be considered a supplemental treatment that may aid with issues like allergies, asthma, fibromyalgia, anxiety, and other potential maladies which may be causing patients issues in their lives.
Ozone therapy is similar in a lot of ways to another treatment called UBI therapy. Both treatments are about aiding a patient’s blood.
UBI may rejuvenate a patient’s blood, kill bacteria and viruses in their bloodstream, and boost their immunity. UBI therapy has no known negative side effects. Like with Ozone therapy, your blood is drawn, which is where some patients may experience discomfort but is not likely to really “hurt.” The patient’s blood is then passed through an ultraviolet light emitting machine. This cleanses their blood with UV light before returning it to their system.
Los Angeles-based RWA Center in Beverly Hills is the place a patient could receive either or both therapies. Ozone therapy and UBI therapy can be booked separately or a patient could choose to get a package deal. To speak with a professional and learn more, call us at (310) 407-0542.
