What is Prolozone™?
Prolozone — also called ozone therapy or Prolozone therapy — is a form of regenerative medicine. The team at Real Health Medical offers Prolozone to support your body’s natural healing and address various health issues such as injuries, chronic inflammation and pain, and degeneration.
Prolozone contains ozone and a metabolically active solution that includes vitamin B12, various minerals, procaine, and Traumeel®, which is a pain remedy.
How does Prolozone work?
Ozone is a naturally occurring gas composed of three oxygen atoms. Oxygen contains only two oxygen atoms, which makes ozone more reactive than oxygen. When injected into your diseased or damaged tissue, the ozone oxygenates the tissue and stimulates the cells to produce energy.
With more energy, your cells work harder to create the tissue needed to repair the damage. At Real Health Medical, the team administers Prolozone therapy in a series of 3-5 injections over 3-8 weeks.
What other therapies improve the effects of Prolozone?
To enhance your body’s healing powers, the team at Real Health Medical may combine your Prolozone therapy with other forms of regenerative medicine. These may include:
- Platelet-rich plasma (PRP)
- Stem cells
- Growth factors
Combining your Prolozone therapy with other forms of regenerative medicine accelerates healing for faster results.
The most common Prolozone-regenerative Medicine protocol at Real Health Medical is “One and Done” therapy, which includes administration of Prolozone during the first week of treatment and then PRP/exosome administration during the second week.
Can Prolozone be combined with hormone therapy?
Yes, Real Health Medical also combines Prolozone therapy with bioidentical hormones or peptide “super” hormones. Hormones maintain the normal repair (anabolic) and healing process in the body and counter the body’s aging (catabolic) tendencies. Bioidentical hormones are essential in men (testosterone) and women (testosterone, estrogen) for optimal joint, cartilage, and ligament health.
Peptide “super” hormone therapy targets joints, cartilage, muscles, and tendons. The team at Real Health Medical finds peptide “super” hormone therapy (CJC, ipamorelin, sermorelin, BPCm tesamorelin), PRP, exosomes, stem cell therapy, and Prolozone therapy useful for improving joint function, reducing or resolving joint and back pain, and preventing the need for back surgery, as well as joint surgery and joint replacement.
