Ozone and other oxygen therapies have been used for over 100 years around the world for human and animal healing. These therapies continue to gain acceptance as the medical community learns about the health benefits of increased oxygen in the body.

Currently, ozone therapy and hyperbaric treatments, which bring easily soluble oxygen to target tissues, are being proven effective for treating viruses, fungi and bacteria, and for general health improvement anytime there is inflammation and damaged tissue.

Ozone contains three oxygen atoms, which react in the tissue as it breaks down to ordinary oxygen (O2) and a reactive singlet oxygen molecule that can combine with chemicals and other molecules.

Nobel Prize winner Dr. Otto Warburg showed that Oxygen deficit, and subsequent toxin buildup, is the underlying factor in the development and progression of ALL DISEASE! Ozone is like a super potent form of Oxygen. It can be of benefit in any disease process in the body.

How does Ozone benefit the body?

The unstable quality of O3 gives it remarkable medical properties and can be considered “supercharged oxygen”.

Ozone’s benefits include:

  • Inactivation of bacteria, viruses and fungi and protozoa
  • Decreasing inflammation
  • Activation of the immune system by stimulating production of white blood cells, interferon, interleukins, and tumor necrosis factor
  • Enhancing toxin removal from the body by stimulating metabolic function
  • Stimulating the body’s protective enzyme systems
  • Enhancing the effects of most hormones, drugs, vitamins and herbs

What conditions benefit from Ozone Therapy?

Wherever there is inflammation, there is an increase in carbon dioxide in the tissue and oxygen will benefit healing in that location.

The most commonly treated conditions include:

  • Cancer
  • Auto-immune disease
  • Chronic infections (hepatitis, cystitis, Lymes disease, etc.)
  • Allergies, sinusitis
  • Intestinal diseases (IBD, colitis, etc.)
  • Ear infections
  • Dental infections
  • Arthritis
  • Chronic pain
  • Intervertebral disc disease

How is Ozone administered?

There are many methods of administering ozone. For most applications we give it dissolved in a fluid solution that is given subcutaneously or administer humidified ozone gas directly into the colon with soft, flexible tubing. Ozone may be used topically, either suspended in an ointment or by surrounding the area to be treated with a specially designed bag that gets filled with ozone gas. It can even be safely inhaled (to treat respiratory infections) if it is first bubbled through olive oil to make it non-irritating to the lungs. Ozone can also be mixed with the patient’s blood and given back to the patient in the form of an IV or intramuscular injection. Regardless of the method of delivery, ozone is an extremely safe and non-painful therapy.

How often are the treatments?

Ozone therapy may be administered as frequently as twice per week depending on the patient’s symptoms and response to therapy. Most patients will benefit from treatments every 1-2 weeks. Acute conditions may need 3-6 treatments to resolve. Animals with chronic conditions may benefit from ozone therapy every 2-8 weeks for best results.
