Ozone therapy is a therapeutic remedy based on the use of a particular combination of oxygen and ozone that can increase the oxygenation of the body.

For this reason it has a powerful antioxidant effect, useful in the treatment of various diseases. In particular, it proved to be suitable for the treatment of herniated discs.
Ozone is a substance naturally produced by white blood cells with the aim of combating and neutralizing the foreign bodies that come into circulation. For this reason, strong anti-inflammatory properties are attributed to it.
Ozone therapy requires that the introduction of ozone into the body takes place in different ways. It can in fact be administered intravenously, by subcutaneous injection, by autohemotransfusion, by intestinal insufflation or by applying ozonated water, ozone creams and ozonated oil. It is not inhaled as it is toxic to the respiratory tract.
