Doctors' Answers to "Frequently Asked Questions" - Ozone Therapy
These comments are made for the purpose of discussion and should NOT be used as recommendations for or against therapies or other treatments. An individual patient is always advised to consult their own physician.
Question: I have seen numerous claims extolling the benefits of ozone therapy for ailments from cancer to Aids.
It looks suspiciously like a quack remedy to me, but I would be grateful to know what the medical profession's opinion of this treatment is.
Answer: Ozone is very toxic to the lungs and I wouldn't expect any effect other than causing asthma
and long term pulmonary problems. On smoggy days they check ozone levels for this reason.
