Ozone Therapy: Description and Benefits
Updated: Sep 24
What is Ozone Therapy?
Ozone is a colorless and odorless gas made up of 3 atoms of oxygen (O3). This additional atom of oxygen is what makes ozone a supercharged and highly effective version of oxygen. Ozone therapy can be used in a variety of ways including boosting the immune system, fighting internal infections, and treating specific diseases.
While many articles will report that ozone is a new treatment with few studies to support its benefits, the reality is that ozone has been utilized and studied for over 150 years. Unfortunately, many conventional practitioners refuse to use ozone therapy as there are known toxic effects on the respiratory tract when inhaled. However, in medical use and here at Cancer Center for Healing/Center for New Medicine, ozone is produced from medical grade oxygen, is never inhaled, and is administered in precise doses.
All cells in the body need sufficient oxygen in order to thrive, while all pathogens need an absence of oxygen to thrive. Providing a boost of oxygen to the body and cells can lead to a cascade of positive benefits.
Benefits of Ozone Therapy
Potent Immune System Regulator
Ozone therapy has the powerful ability to regulate the immune system by either boosting it when underactive or calming it down when overactive. For example, individuals with illnesses like cancer, AIDS, or who have chronic infections are able to utilize ozone therapy to upregulate the immune system. Transversely, for individuals with auto-immune diseases whose immune systems are overactive, ozone helps calm the immune response and dramatically reduce symptoms.
Increased Oxygen Uptake
Ozone stimulates increased oxygen uptake which can lead to better mitochondrial function and cellular energy. When our cells are able to function at peak energy, virtually every biological process within the body is improved.
Ozone enhances the flow of blood throughout the body. This increased blood flow paired with the increased cellular oxygen can lead to benefits like faster wound healing, reduced inflammation, reduced pain, and improvement in many chronic inflammatory diseases.
Increased Antioxidant Protection
Many individuals suffering from chronic illnesses have deficient antioxidant defenses. Ozone is able to increase antioxidant protection throughout the body and therein decrease damage from oxidative stress.
Decreased mitochondrial energy is a major underlying cause of most degenerative diseases. As such, increased mitochondrial energy can reverse or significantly improve the symptoms of many degenerative diseases.
These baseline benefits can lead to tangible improvements like:
Faster wound recovery/injury recovery
Improved brain function (memory, sharpness, reaction time, etc)
Better nutrient absorption
Support in healing the health conditions listed below
Ozone Therapy Can be Used to Help Treat
Infections: bacteria, yeast, fungi, viruses, protozoa
Breathing Disorders: asthma, chronic pulmonary obstructive disease
Immune Disorders: HIV, cancer, AIDS
Chronic bladder conditions
Types of Ozone Therapy
There are several main methods of ozone application:
Directly to the injured tissue (in a protected way so gas does not fill the room)
Intravenously through IV
Injected into the rectum or vaginal canal via a catheter
While ozone has many applications and is widely beneficial, it is important to note that it is not a cure-all treatment. Most significant results have been found when ozone therapy is used in conjuncture with a healthy lifestyle and diet.
Here at Center for New Medicine/Cancer Center for Healing we offer several forms of ozone therapy:
10-Pass Ozone Therapy
Here, a practitioner withdraws an amount of blood, infuses this blood with ozone, and then injects it back into your body. The process is repeated 10 times. This delivers the max possible benefits of ozone therapy in a quick and relatively non-invasive manner.
Ozone gas is injected vaginally to help support the healing of damaged tissue and to prevent or fight yeast infections, and/or urinary tract infections.
Ozone can be injected into the rectum which allows the ozone gas to be delivered straight to the liver. This enhances detoxification and liver function can help kill parasites and pathogens throughout the gut and reduce gut inflammation.
