Ozone therapy is an integrative medical procedure with purported health benefits to aid in various conditions. There are various ways in which ozone therapy is administered such as ionized oils, ozoned water sprays, vaginal/rectal injections, muscle injections, and intravenously. The most popular, and most effective, procedure is the ozone application intravenously, known as autohemotherapy. Autohemotherapy is a simple process in which the blood is drawn from the veins and the ozone is added to the blood. After the ozone is added to the blood, the blood is then re- injected into the veins.
Why Choose Ozone Autohemotherapy
There are many reasons to choose ozone therapy. Many people suffer from “incurable” disease such as AIDS or various cancers.
