Benefits of Ozone Therapy

Benefits of Ozone Therapy

Ozone Therapy is an alternative treatment that boosts the body’s immunity, improves circulation and eliminates toxins. It’s also a natural antibiotic.

Ozone is a gas composed of three oxygen atoms. It can be blown into the body or injected to treat localised areas of pain and inflammation. It can also be used to erase scars.

1. Increased Oxygen Levels

Increased Oxygen Levels

Ozone is a supercharged oxygen molecule that has been shown to stimulate and quicken your body’s natural healing processes. It’s also been known to help treat a wide range of conditions including arthritic pain, chronic sinusitis, and fibromyalgia.

When used in conjunction with Major Autohemotherapy (blood irradiation), it can boost your immune system to help fight viruses and bacteria. This combination has been proven to be more effective at helping patients suffering from a variety of viral diseases.

In addition, ozone therapy has been shown to improve circulation and enhance blood flow. This can help prevent heart disease, as well as reduce the risk of developing arrhythmias after a heart attack.

The ozone molecule is very effective at killing pathogens and destroying harmful toxins in the body. This enables more oxygen carrying hemoglobin to reach your cells, improving blood and tissue oxygen levels. It can be given in many ways such as intravenously, rectal, bladder, vaginal, limb bag or by injection into a pain area.

2. Improved Circulation

When ozone enters the bloodstream, it stimulates oxidative metabolism within red cells to increase 2,3-DPG, which releases more oxygen into tissues. This increases circulation and cellular energy, making the body more resistant to infections. Ozone also has an ability to deactivate a wide variety of viruses, including herpes, HIV, Lyme disease, shingles, polio, rotavirus, and many more.

It increases the production of cytochrome c oxidase and GSH (gamma-glutathione). These are enzymes that help your body eliminate free radicals.

A typical course of ozone therapy is 6-10 treatments given once or twice per week. After 3-4 sessions, patients often notice that their symptoms are starting to improve – fatigue, recurring infections, muscle/joint pain or allergies. Ozone therapy can be used as a stand-alone treatment or as a complement to other treatments like Myer’s cocktail IV therapy and Platelet Rich Plasma (prp) injections.

3. Improved Immune System

Improved Immune System

Ozone therapy stimulates your body’s natural immune system to speed up healing and reduce infection. This treatment has also been proven to be effective against viruses, bacteria and fungus like yeast.

When oxygen ozone comes into contact with diseased or unhealthy cells, it is broken down into peroxides which attack only the pathogens or toxins in your body. Healthy cells are protected by lipids [fats] in their cell walls which prevent penetration by the peroxides.

Research in 2018 found that when ozone is mixed with blood and injected into HIV patients, it significantly reduced their viral load over a two-year period.

Ozone is a powerful immunomodulator, it can trigger macrophages phenotypic switching from pro-inflammatory to anti-inflammatory (M2 switch). It can also activate the HIF-1a and HO-1 biochemical pathways which promote immune activation. It can also stimulate the production of enzymes that protect your cells against damage from oxidants. It can also inhibit cellular senescence and improve your ability to regenerate your tissue.

4. Reduced Risk of Repeat Heart Attack

Ozone therapy increases the production of key buffering enzymes that help protect cells from damage caused by oxidation. It also enhances the release of growth factors that promote healing. Oxidative stress is a condition that can be triggered by many things, including cigarette smoke, poor diet and lack of exercise, inflammatory foods, environmental toxins and certain diseases.


IV ozone therapy is a treatment that can be performed in our office with minimal, if any discomfort. First, some of your blood is drawn into a sterile IV bag. Then, ozone is added to the blood and then back into your body. The process takes about 30 minutes. After your treatment, you will probably experience a Herxheimer reaction, which is normal and occurs when the body is detoxifying and healing. This will improve with further treatments. Contact our office today to see if you are a good candidate for this treatment.
