A

Dear Jeanette, according to recent research (Luongo, et al., 2017), recent literature highlights that ozone therapy could be considered a viable adjuvant (complementary) therapy in oncological patients receiving radio-chemotherapy. The emphasis should always be on “adjuvant” and not “in the place of” or “alternative”.

The use of ozone therapy in the mentioned patients seems to enhance the action of chemotherapy and at the same time appears to reduce side-effects, such as nausea, vomiting, opportunistic infections, buccal ulcers, hair loss and fatigue.

According to the researchers, such positive therapeutic effects of ozone therapy can cause a larger physical and mental wellbeing resulting in improved quality of life of patients. (MCH).
