Ozone Therapy Immune System

What is the immune system?

The immune system is our body’s defense system against infection. Its function is to attack invading germs and keep us healthy.

What is Ozone Therapy for the immune system?

Ozone therapy has the ability to activate various defense mechanisms of the body, achieving a modulation of the immune system.

Ozone is a bioregulator that has the ability to activate the body’s defense mechanisms, so that a cellular redox balance is achieved.

In the case of a possible infection, the activation of the active metabolites of ozone, together with an activation of pro-inflammatory cytokines, can help to eliminate the infection. In addition, it has been shown that when the number of inflammatory cytokines is increased in excess, ozone can act by decreasing proinflammatory cytokines and increasing anti-inflammatory cytokines.

In some cases the immune system mistakenly attacks healthy tissue. These are called autoimmune diseases. The cause of these diseases is unknown. Rheumatoid arthritis and lupus are two examples of autoimmune diseases. In these diseases, proinflammatory cytokines are elevated. Ozone, due to its ability to modulate the immune system, acts by decreasing them, trying to achieve a balance between pro- and anti-inflammatory cytokines.

Why is it performed?

When the immune system is working properly, it is a powerful ally to keep us healthy. Ozone therapy treatment helps to keep the immune system in optimal conditions.

No prior preparation is required to perform the ozone autohemotherapy treatment. The treatment takes about 20-30 minutes.
