Ozone Therapy

Ozone is a colorless gas made up of three oxygen atoms. It is used as an alternative therapy to improve the body's intake and use of oxygen and to activate the immune system. - Tom Seymour.  Medical News Today.  January 29,2018


Ozone can have a powerful effect on tissue repair and regeneration. It stimulates cell/tissue growth factor production and release, which is important for tissue regeneration to occur.


Ozone was first used developed in Germany in the early 1950’s, to treat various medical conditions.  It’s based on the fact that many toxins and pathogens in the body are normally destroyed by a process called oxidation.  If the body is weak or deficient in oxygen, it cannot eliminate toxins adequately and illnesses or tissue breakdown can occur.  Ozone increases oxidation in a targeted helpful way.


Medical ozone therapy is commonly used throughout Europe, and its use is spreading in the U.S.  It can be administered for many infectious diseases as well as chronic conditions such as arthritis, chronic fatigue syndrome, Alzheimer’s disease, dementia, multiple sclerosis, fibromyalgia, skin conditions, cancer, heart disease, bladder and vaginal infections, and many more.


Studies show ozone may be beneficial to health by:

  • Inactivating bacteria, viruses, fungi, parasites, yeast, and protozoa
  • Stimulating the immune system to speed up healing
  • Improving circulation by cleaning the arteries and veins
  • Purifying blood and the lymph
  • Normalizing hormone and enzyme production
  • Having anti-inflammatory properties
  • Reducing pain
  • Stopping bleeding
  • Preventing shock
  • Limiting stroke damage
  • Reducing cardiac arrhythmia or abnormal heart rhythm
  • Reducing the risk of complications from diabetes
  • Improving brain function and memory
