In ozone therapy medical grade ozone, which is a mixture of oxygen and ozone, is introduced in the body to speed up recovery. It has been found to be effective in healing Covid-19 patients.

While Covid-19 cases are showing a downward trend, the possibility of a third wave of Covid-19 pandemic hitting the country around festival season cannot be ruled out. If there is anything that the deadly second wave of pandemic has taught us, it is to not let our guards down. Health experts across the world are also looking at alternative therapies to fight Covid-19 and one of the treatment options that show promise is ozone therapy.

"As per clinical trial conducted in mid 2020 ozone therapy showed recovery rate of 77% within five days and by the eighth day all the patients from ozone group recovered. Ozone therapy has a greater impact in controlling the infection as patient suffers from various conditions such as circulatory disorders leading to clotting or thrombosis, headaches, lung infection, body pain and breathlessness situations. We have given ozone therapy to more than 700 patients in Mumbai and Pune," says Dr. Mili Shah, President, Ozone Forum of India.
