Fibromyalgia is a chronic disorder that has become fairly common. Generalized pain is considered to be the main symptom of this disease. However people suffering from fibromyalgia often suffer from non restorative sleep, chronic fatigue, anxiety, and depression. Those with fibromyalgia have varying degrees of disruption of their lives–it can be quite disabling.
The exact cause of fibromyalgia is unknown but it is felt to be from a combination of genetic and environmental factors. One underlying factor appears to be an increase in oxidative stress and a decrease in the body’s natural antioxidant system. In patients with fibromyalgia low concentrations of antioxidant enzymes such as catalase, glutathione peroxidase, and superoxide dismutase have been reported in several studies.
Ozone therapy is used to treat a wide range of diseases, has been particularly useful in the treatment of fibromyalgia. Ozone helps by exerting a mild, transient, and controlled oxidative stress that promotes an up regulation of the antioxidant system and a modulation of the immune system. Ozone therapy is a biologic treatment that enables the body’s natural systems to start working again–allowing your body to heal itself.
Ozone therapy is easily and safely administered by a highly trained professional. There are inexpensive cheaply made ozone machines on the market but they come with the high risk of getting contaminated ozone and they have other safety issues. Medical grade ozone machines provide safe ozone. Ozone therapy for fibromyalgia can be administered rectally or through blood. A consultation is important to determine your customized, comprehensive fibromyalgia therapy program.
