What Is Ozone Therapy?

Ozone therapy is a method of treatment that employs ozone, a colorless gas composed of three oxygen atoms, to address a wide range of underlying medical issues such as inflammation, infection, and poor oxygen absorption and utilization. In addition to fighting infections and purifying the body, ozone therapy boosts the immune system and improves the body’s ability to absorb and utilize oxygen.

Intravenous ozone therapy is used to treat a range of conditions, including autoimmune disorders, infections caused by bacteria, viruses, fungi, and protozoa, chronic fatigue, Lyme disease, and others. Ozone is a molecule made of three oxygen atoms, denoted in the chemical formula O3. This molecule is named ozone because it consists of three oxygen atoms, rather than regular oxygen, which consists of two oxygen atoms. Mucus membranes are usually damaged by environmental ozone, so it must be distinguished from medical ozone. Medical ozone, which is administered safely and precisely, is not normally associated with any side effects. It is created by combining medical oxygen with an electromagnetic charged ion machine.

How Does Ozone IV Therapy Work?

An ozone treatment involves mixing blood with saline and ozone gas to create an O3/O2/O mixture. As the O3 and O2 quickly recombine to form O, the IV drip returns the hyper-oxygenated blood back into the bloodstream, where it can begin to moderate immune reactions.
