Ozone Therapy



Ozone is a gas which has a specific odor that we can feel in the summer days after a thunderstorm and in the mountains at high altitude in the woods but also on the beach where the waves break along with the salt vapors. Ozone is the gas that keeps everything alive on earth, the ozone layer being a natural filter that absorbs most of the ultraviolet radiation that are dangerous to the living organisms.
