What Is Ozone Therapy?

Ozone therapy uses ozone, a colorless gas made up of three oxygen atoms, and it may be applied through injection or insufflation, which can be used to treat a range of underlying health issues. In medicine, ozone therapy is used to detox, disinfect, treat diseases and improve the body’s intake and use of oxygen, as well as activating the immune system.

Intravenous ozone therapy is used to treat a variety conditions, including autoimmune disorders, infections of bacterial, viral, fungal, and protozoan origin, chronic fatigue, Lyme disease, and more. Ozone is a molecule that is made up of three oxygen atoms, denoted in the chemical formula O3. Oxygen is O2; ozone is O3. It is important to differentiate between medical ozone and environmental ozone, as they are commonly confused. Environmental ozone is a known pollutant that can be harsh on mucus membranes and is typically unsafe; medical ozone, safely and precisely administered, does not generally have any side effects. We make medical grade ozone (O3) by using medical oxygen (O2) and an electromagnetic charged ion machine to attach O to the O2  (O(1) + O2 = O3). During an ozone treatment, blood is withdrawn and mixed with normal saline and ozone gas. The O3 quickly turns back into O and O2 as it mixes with blood and saline, and an IV drip returns the hyper-oxygenated fluid back into the bloodstream, where it can begin to help modulate immune responses.
Benefits of Ozone Therapy
  • Bactericidal, fungicidal and virucidal when applied to the outside of organisms.
  • Anti-inflammatory – breaks down prostaglandins and arachidonic acid substances within the immune system.
  • Analgesic – decreases the pain response by reducing oxidation to and around nerve endings.
  • Detoxification – this occurs in the liver and the kidneys, both for the organs themselves as well as for their function in the body.
  • Increases oxygenation to cells and tissues.
  • Optimization of the pro- and antioxidant systems in the body, helping to balance the immune system.
  • Varied response to coagulation – at high doses increases coagulation and haemostasias in blood vessels, at low levels increases fibrinolytic activity (breaking up of coagulation).
  • Indirect influence on multiple anti-inflammatory components of the immune system as it interacts with various cells. This can help patients with autoimmune diseases.

What does the procedure look like?

You will need to take an extra dose of blood-thinning agents such as fish oil before the procedure. You will arrive in the clinic and have an IV placed that will draw out blood and put it in a reservoir. The blood in this reservoir is then mixed with ozone gas and released back into your body. This constitutes one pass. Our machine offers up to 10 passes as tolerated by the patient. A full ozone IV therapy should take about 1.5 hours per session and can be repeated 1-2 times per week depending on the severity of what’s being treated.

Ozone can also be used topically to aid with slow-healing wounds or can be ingested as ozonated water for similar results. Ozone can also be injected into the joints or into body cavities if needed for some treatments.

Standards Defining Medical Ozone is Safe

  1. Ozone generators that are compliant and certified to strict quality and safety operational guidelines
  2. Use a closed system that prevents any residue of medical ozone from escaping during the production of medical ozone
  3. Professionals use specific standard operating procedures for the collection of medical ozone
  4. Use define protocols to apply medical ozone 

Why Is Ozone Therapy Important?

Oxygen deficit is key to the development and progression of all disease processes. Oxygen deficit and subsequent toxin buildup is the fundamental cause of all degenerative disease, especially cancers. Antioxidants help the body to protect itself from excessive oxidative damage caused by multiple free radicals, many of which are inactivated by ozone. Ozone therapy increases oxygen in the body, therefore having many benefits. Ozone therapy benefits include strengthening of the immune system, stimulating white blood cells, preventing infections and immune

system deficiencies by destroying fungi, bacteria and viruses. It also helps to counteract cell mutations, thereby preventing some types of cancer. It also helps red blood cells to transport oxygen and improves circulation and general cell function. As well as being a powerful antioxidant, it helps to eliminate toxins.

What Science Says About It?

The action mechanism of it is stimulation of O₂ and inactivation of microorganisms including bacteria, fungi and viruses. It has been found effective in Asthma and other related diseases, which involve inflammation. In osteoarthritis, it has been used for pain control in the knee. The ozone therapy has normalized the organic peroxide levels, in order to reduce the Diabetic complications. In another study, the therapy has increased the cytokines level, thus helping in boosting the host immunity. It was also effective in lowering the concentrations of Acinetobacter baumannii, and Clostridium difficile concentrations, in vitro.

No Harm According To Medical Research

Medical O₃ is used for disinfection. It has safe and consistent benefits, with some minimal harms associated. O₃ action results in oxidation and formation of free radicals. As a result, a reaction cascade is started, and membrane permeability of the affected cells’ changes. Enzymes got inactivated, due to the loss of functional group, that occurs due to O₃ action. All of these actions have led to cell death. The main problem with this therapy is the formation of radicals and oxides. It can be prevented by measured release and use of ozone.
