Ozone Therapy Q & A

What is ozone therapy?

Ozone therapy is the process of using ozone — a colorless gas that’s made up of three oxygen atoms — to improve your body’s oxygen intake, activate your immune system, and disinfect and treat various conditions by limiting the adverse effects of bacteria, viruses, yeast, and fungi on your body's systems.

What conditions does ozone therapy treat?

Because of its disinfectant and anti-inflammatory properties, ozone helps to treat wounds and increase blood flow. It’s also often used to treat conditions that are otherwise difficult to cure, including:

  • Viral diseases
  • Cancer
  • SARS
  • Diabetes
  • Circulatory disorders
  • Rheumatoid arthritis
  • Geriatric conditions
  • Macular degeneration
  • Cardiovascular disease
  • Hepatitis C
  • Dental infections
  • Chronic pain syndromes
  • Autoimmune diseases
  • Degenerative joint conditions

When integrated as part of a comprehensive treatment plan, ozone therapy can help other therapies produce better results and help you feel your best.

What are the benefits of ozone therapy?

Ozone therapy may be beneficial in several ways, including:

  • Stimulating your immune system to aid in healing
  • Improving circulation
  • Purifying your blood and lymphatic system
  • Normalizing hormone production
  • Reducing pain
  • Reducing complications from diabetes
  • Improving brain function and enhancing memory
  • Increasing energy
  • Giving your skin a healthy glow
  • Helping you sleep better

Ozone therapy can offer a myriad of benefits that help alleviate your symptoms and improve your quality of life.

What happens during an ozone therapy treatment?

You may receive ozone therapy in a few different ways: directly to a wound, intravenously, or intramuscularly. For wounds, your doctor applies the ozone gas directly to the affected tissue on your body to promote healing. They use a protective covering over the area to apply the ozone gas exactly where it’s needed.

For internal conditions like viruses or immune diseases, your doctor may take some of your blood to dissolve the ozone gas into and then inject it back into your body intravenously.

You can also receive the ozone gas through an injection. Your physician first mixes the ozone with your blood or with a sterile solution before injecting it into the affected muscle.
