Ozone is a gas produced from oxygen by applying an electrical charge. Ozone has powerful effects in calming inflammation and suppressing infections caused by viruses, bacteria and fungi. Drawn into a syringe, it can be passed through the nostrils into the sinuses to heal infection and reduce allergic symptoms. We have treated patients with chronic sinus congestion and drainage, who have failed treatment with multiple antibiotics, and improved with ozone nasal therapy. Lung infections are often brought on or aggravated by drainage from the upper airway, and ozone can keep these complications from occurring.
Nasal ozone is a simple treatment that can be given in minutes. There is often profuse nasal drainage that begins right after treatment, and indicates clearing of sinus congestion. Patients can be treated daily, weekly or intermittently as needed.
