Can ozone therapy help with the treatment of autoimmune disease, chronic pain, and inflammation? On today’s podcast, I had a conversation with Dr. Akbar Khan to help answer these questions. While I remain apprehensive about recommending ozone therapy for conditions I treat based on the amount of evidence in support of its use, I appreciated this discussion and am open to the potential benefits, including those that may come to light with further research. If ozone therapy is something you’re curious about, I encourage you to listen to this episode.
