Ozone Therapy

Ozone Therapy

Ozone therapy is one of the most-discussed alternative treatments within the chronic illness community – and for good reason. Mixing this gas naturally found in Earth’s atmosphere with oxygen creates a treatment with the potential for powerful healing capabilities. Ozone therapy has been used by practitioners and researched by scientists for more than 150 years, with benefits shown for autoimmune diseases as well as many other health issues. Ozone works by stimulating the immune system. So if conventional medicine has left you in the lurch, not feeling your best, and afraid of becoming even sicker, it might be time to try this natural, time-tested approach.

What is Ozone Therapy and how Does It Work?

Medical ozone is made by passing oxygen through an electrical coil, giving it three atoms, which change O2 (oxygen) into O3 (ozone). It can be administered in the ears, rectum, vagina, and bladder or delivered intramuscularly (into a muscle), via autohemotherapy (into the blood), or subcutaneously (under the skin). It also can be delivered by an ozone steam sauna. 

The administration of ozone into the body is done a couple of ways: directly into the point of pain or disease or into the blood, letting this “supercharged” oxygen do its work.
Research suggests that ozone therapy could fight disease by harmonizing your immune system response as well as reversing oxygen deficits in the body.

Benefits of Ozone Therapy

  • Boost Your Immune System
  • Antibacterial, Antifungal, And Antiviral Abilities
  • Reverse Damage To Brain Tissue After A Stroke
  • Lower the Risk Of Repeat Heart Attacks
  • Joint Mobility
  • Detoxing
  • Wound Healing
  • Pain Relief
  • Stem Cell Activation and Repair
  • Oxygenation of Cells
  • Skin Rejuvenation

Boost Your Immune System

Ozone therapy has the potential to modify the immune system to better cope with inflammation. Many people suffer from conditions that cause inflammation. For example, inflammatory markers are often found in the blood of asthmatics. Inflammation can lead to oxidative stress and is associated with pain and discomfort.

Antibacterial, Antifungal, and Antiviral Abilities

With so many bacteria becoming antibiotic-resistant, scientists have been looking for new means of dealing with bacterial infections along with novel treatments for fungal and viral infections.

Reverse Damage to Brain Tissue After a Stroke

When you have a stroke, the affected area of the brain begins to lose its crucial oxygen supply, causing hypoxia (an absence of enough oxygen in the tissues to sustain bodily functions) of the surrounding brain cells. This area of damage is known as the “penumbra.” 

Lower The Risk of Repeat Heart Attacks

Ozone therapy could reduce the risk of a repeat heart attack and the development of an infarction (tissue death due to lack of oxygen) or arrhythmia (an abnormal or irregular heartbeat) after a heart attack.

Joint Mobility

A September 2018 study reported that therapeutic ozone therapy is “making strides” in the successful management and treatment of musculoskeletal disorders. This is exciting news for sufferers of disorders like rheumatoid arthritis, carpal tunnel syndrome, and bursitis. Studies have shown that people dealing with joint-related conditions respond well to ozone therapy.


It’s nearly impossible to avoid exposure to all toxins and heavy metals. These impurities affect how your body functions, damage your health, inhibit the immune system, and impact your body’s recovery speed.
One way to combat toxins is by following a nutritious diet. Another way to detox is through regular ozone treatments, which can improve your overall metabolism and health.

Wound Healing

Ozone therapy may also help promote wound healing. One study found that ozone therapy treats ulcerous wounds on the feet of diabetic patients, while another discovered it was equally effective in the care and reduction of painful mouth ulcers.

Pain Relief

If you have back pain, you know how debilitating it can be. It’s also one of the most common reasons people visit doctors and take time off from work. The good news is that researchers found that ozone therapy has the potential to be extremely beneficial for lower back pain. This is likely related to its anti-inflammatory properties.

Stem Cell Activation And Repair

Your stem cells work continuously to produce all types of cells, including for the heart, brain, blood, nerves, skin, or any other part of your body. Ozone may be able to help stem cells reactivate into new cells. New evidence suggests ozone therapy could improve this readiness to reactivate, thus leading to better cellular repair.

Oxygenation of Cells

Just like with strokes, tissue death can occur if your tissues don’t get enough oxygen. Hypoxia can occur in other organs and, if you have anemia, through the entire bloodstream. Because ozone therapy provides the body with more readily available oxygen, there’s some evidence that it can also help in the treatment of certain hypoxic tumors when combined with chemotherapy and radiotherapy. Please talk with your doctor before adding this to your treatment regimen.

Skin Rejuvenation

It’s only recently that ozone therapy has been used to help rejuvenate the skin, but it makes perfect sense. Skin cells need oxygen to stay in good condition. Ozone therapy increases oxygenation which can help cells rejuvenate. And because it has antioxidant and germicidal action, it may stimulate collagen and elastin as well as restore nerve circulation for cutaneous regeneration.
