As the COVID-19 pandemic sweeps the globe, it’s changed daily life for all of us. We’re all taking measures to prevent ourselves from getting sick. For most of us, that means limiting trips from our home, washing our hands, and wearing face coverings.
Ultimately, staying healthy in a time of sickness comes down to your immune system. This system serves as your body’s first line of defense. Your immune system fights off outside invaders, including viruses. So, naturally, many people are looking for ways to give that system a boost.
We have just the thing. At Dr. McKenna’s Orthopedics and Biologics offices in Trophy Club and Dallas, Texas, Dr. Wade McKenna, offers ozone therapy. With this innovative treatment, our team has a way to kickstart your immune system and provide the support it needs to work at its best.
A look at ozone therapy and your immunity
Ozone has long been used as a safe alternative disinfectant for water and air. With ozone therapy, you can capitalize on the sanitizing action of ozone for your own body.
During ozone therapy, we combine ozone — a gas made of three oxygen atoms — with your blood, then introduce that mixture into your body intravenously.
As the ozone enters your bloodstream, it activates your immune system. As it stimulates your immunity, it also purifies your blood and inactivates a variety of organisms living in your body, including:
In other words, as the ozone therapy boosts your immune system, it also helps it do its job. The result is a minimally invasive treatment that supports your overall immunity and wellness. If you’ve been looking for a way to improve your health and avoid sickness, don’t hesitate to ask any of our team members about ozone therapy.
