Ozone is an unstable molecule consisting of 3 oxygen atoms. While ozone is better known for its role in the atmospheric layer, its biological benefits are mostly overlooked. However, it has a significant role in our lives with its therapeutic effects. It acts as a shield, protecting the Earth from harmful rays coming from space and especially the Sun. Back in the ancient times, ozone was referred to as the “Breath of God”. So what is ozone therapy, i.e. medical ozone? Ozone therapy is a therapeutic treatment carried out by using active oxygen molecules. Medical ozone is comprised of a mixture of 5% ozone and 95% oxygen. Based on this, we can say that the presence of oxygen is also important. Healthy cells need oxygen to carry out life functions. Therefore, the mechanism of oxygen in the human body is quite significant. Listing some of the factors that lead to oxygen deficiency will help us understand this treatment better. Causes such as:
– Air pollution
– Cardiopulmonary diseases
– Arteriosclerosis hinder and adversely affect the oxygen mechanism in the body.
What are the benefits of ozone therapy?
Increases the oxygenation of tissues and cells.
Effective in compensating for oxygen deficiency.

Increases the body’s resistance against cancer and infections as it boosts the immune system.
Regulates blood circulation and therefore blood pressure.
Ensures a healthy sleep.
Reduces fatigue and stress.
