Ozone therapy is scientifically valid with hundreds, if not thousands of published research papers supporting its mechanisms of action, biological effects, effectiveness and safety.
It is used by certified doctors worldwide due to its numerous therapeutic properties. Ozone therapy has been widely used in medicine for over 80 years. The first ozone generator was patented in 1896 by Nikola Tesla. During WWI, topical ozone therapy was used by doctors on the battlefields to disinfect and heal wounds. In 2010, the Alvarado and Miramar water treatment plants of San Diego, California, initiated the use of ozone as their primary disinfectant. Today, trained and certified ozone therapy doctors all over the world utilize this therapy to treat a wide range of conditions. Multiple different international organizations of ozone therapy exist (Please visit "Ozone Organizations" page for more information"). In the United States, there are only small number of doctors trained and certified in ozone therapy.
WHAT IS OZONE AND OZONE THERAPY?
Ozone gas consists of three oxygen atoms as opposed to the two oxygen molecules found in the air we breathe. It occurs naturally and creates the ozone layer, Earth's protective layer from the Sun's ultraviolet radiation.
Ozone therapy is a novel, safe, and effective therapy that utilizes medical grade oxygen/ozone gas created by an advanced medical device in a certified doctor's office. Ozone therapy is typically used for its tissue regenerative, immune-supportive, anti-oxidant, anti-inflammatory, anti-septic, and anti-aging properties. The effects of Ozone therapy are proven, safe, and with minimal or no side effects.
WHAT ARE THE BENEFITS OF OZONE THERAPY?
Reduce chronic inflammation (oxidative stress)
Support tissue repair (enhances the release of growth factors)
Increase cellular energy
Reduce oxidized LDL ("bad cholesterol")
Improve oxygen delivery to cells and circulation
Up-regulate the antioxidant system
Modulate the immune system
HOW IS OZONE THERAPY USED?
Ozone therapy has many clinical applications and a number of ways to administer it, depending on the health condition to be addressed. It is administered in a number of different ways; the most common is intravenous (IV) ozone which involves removing a volume of the patient's blood (Typically 50-250 ml) into a sterile container containing an anticoagulant to prevent the blood from clotting. This volume of blood is then treated with ozone and then infused into the patient via an IV drip. Other methods administration include musculoskeletal injections (called P-zone which is similar to Prolotherapy and Platelet Rich Plasma), topical applications, and rectal and bladder insufflation. Direct injection of ozone gas into the venous or arterial system is no longer a commonly used technique due to many reported adverse effects.
IN WHAT CONDITIONS IS OZONE THERAPY USED?
Ozone therapy has a wide range of therapeutic uses. Ozone therapy is typically used for its tissue regenerative, anti-oxidant, immune-supportive, anti-inflammatory, anti-septic and anti-ageing properties. Published research articles have demonstrated positive results in:
Chronic fatigue syndrome
Peripheral Artery Disease
Cerebral Vascular Disease
Diabetes and associated complications including ulcers
Post Stroke (Acute cerebral infarction)
Chronic viral hepatitis
Disc herniation (Lumbar and Cervical)
Eye Conditions (age-related macular degeneration, diabetic retinopathy, glaucoma)
Dental and gum infections
Ozone therapy has also been reportedly used in the treatment of:
Environmental and seasonal allergies
