Physical Therapy and Rehabilitation Specialist Associate Professor Ahmet İnanır gave important information on the subject. The immune system consists of tissues and organs that defend the body against microbes and their secretions. Immunity is the task of defense cells called leukocytes, which are the building blocks of this system. These cells fight both by attacking microbes and by producing some toxic substances against them. For this reason, the deficiency in the number or function of leukocytes is called "immune deficiency". In this case, it causes the emergence of diseases.
The human body is attacked by many microbes around it, and these organisms struggle to enter our body. A healthy body mostly copes with the disease agents and foreign substances it encounters. But a strong immune system is very important for this war. It is undoubtedly very important to have a strong immune system for the fight against the Coronavirus, which continues to spread around the world.
Ozone therapy can be used to strengthen immunity. Ozone is a molecule made up of three oxygen atoms. When given to the body, it immediately turns into peroxides, which are oxidizing molecules. Since peroxides are powerful oxidant molecules, the body activates all antioxidant systems, which is called "Therapeutic shock". It is thought that the antioxidant molecules formed by ozone affect the harmful oxidant molecules formed in the areas of the body, such as vascular occlusion, circulatory-oxygenation disorder, rheumatic disease, nerve pressure. It also has the effect of strengthening the immune system.
Ozone can be given to the body by almost any route except the lungs. Pure ozone is not given to the body, it is actually oxygen with very little ozone in it. Even such a low ozone concentration can be sufficient to produce the desired therapeutic effect. The most important feature of ozone injection is that it acts very quickly. Since thin needle tips are used during ozone injection, it is not a painful procedure. However, sometimes the patient may experience burning and pain due to ozone applied. The pain at the end of the injection can pass quickly within a few minutes. Initiating ozone therapy from the nose and other routes against the coronavirus may provide a protective effect.
