SUMMARYIntroduction
Ozone is the unstable gas, having powerful oxidizing properties. However, it still had been used as therapy for decades. Nowadays, it is broadly used but yet is stillcontroversial.
Applications
First revealed by the German chemist Christian Frederick Schonbein (1840), ozone breaks down to oxygen very quickly. It cannot be bottled so must be freshly generatedwhen it is needed. The usual ways to produce it, are including ultraviolet radiation,corona discharge, cold plasma and electromagnetic.Currently, there are nine methods of practical ozone therapy namely direct intra-arterial and intravenous application, rectal insufflations, intramuscular injections,major and minor autohemotherapy, ozonated water, intra-articular injection, ozone bagging, ozonated oil and inhalation of ozone.
Safety Issues
However, there are some reported cases relating with ozone therapy such as air embolism, blood borne infections and bilateral visual field loss after receiving ozonetherapy. Normally, these were happened when the treatment is done by unqualified personal and also might be due to the contraindication of using this therapy.
Effectiveness
It is stated that this ozone therapy can be used to treat up to 300 diseases andsyndromes for example, ischaemia, skin disorders, obstetric and gynaecology problems, and cancers. Though, there are very little evidences to show that patientsare having complete resolutions after experiencing ozone therapy.
Advantages
Ozone therapy applied relaxing and non-invasive approach to the patient. It also willcleanse the skin, pores and lymphatic system. Besides, the users will take advantageof 2 therapies all at once namely sweat therapy and ozone therapy.
 
Disadvantages
Only the trained physicians can performed this therapy. The concentration of ozoneused must be put under the firm eyes as the ozone has potent oxidant properties. If itwas handled improperly, it can be toxic to the pulmonary system and causing the sideeffects such as epiphora and upper respiratory irritation, rhinitis, cough, headache,occasional nausea, and vomiting.
Conclusion
The therapeutic use of ozone has an exceptional safety record have been observedfrom the view of the clinical use. But still, there is not enough evidence to suggest thatthe usage of ozone therapy as alternative medicine has real advantages over theavailable conventional treatment.
