Ozone gas has been used for decades to treat various health conditions, speed recovery, sterilize water and stop the spread of disease. Ozone, a naturally occurring gas, has many healing properties that can you can benefit from. In this blog post, we will discuss the history of therapeutic ozone treatments, some of the conditions it treats and what benefits you, as a patient, can expect to experience.
What Is Ozone Therapy?
Very simply, Ozone or O3, is a gas created when Oxygen gas—O2, is exposed to UV radiation or electricity (such as from lightning) and results in three molecules of Oxygen being loosely bound together. You can actually smell ozone in the air during a thunderstorm as the energy from lightning causes Oxygen (O2) to be split and Ozone is formed. When this process occurs in a medical setting, through a medical grade ozone generator—and administered precisely in a therapeutic manner—it is a powerful oxidizing agent or Oxygen donor to tissues.
Lack of Oxygen in tissues has been shown to be very influential in the development of disease and the degeneration of tissues. Ozone, by increasing Oxygen utilization within the cell, can help overcome this Oxygen deprivation.
Ozone therapy is not new. In fact, after nearly 4 decades of medical use, it has been found that Ozone can be used as a treatment for different forms of arthritis, including osteoarthritis and back pain from degenerative arthritis, viral/bacterial infections and wound healing as well as many other health issues. Despite its many beneficial uses, conventional medicine in the U.S. does not embrace this powerful therapy. In Europe, and other countries around the world, Ozone therapy is much more widely accepted. As a result European physicians have found many, many more uses for ozone to relieve pain and disease.
Since The 1850s...
In the later half of the 19th Century and the beginning of the 20th Century ozone was used in water treatment facilities in Europe during the wake of cholera epidemics. It's still used today in water treatment facilities around the world because of its antibacterial and antifungal capabilities.
In medical use, ozone is used to treat a range of conditions. See below for a broader list. Since Oxygen utilization is vital to all parts of the human body, Ozone can exert an effect on every organ system. If infections, (viral, bacterial, spirochetes) are contributing to the diseased state, Ozone has a tremendous capacity to heal. Autoimmune disease, fibromyalgia and some cancers have also been successfully treated with Ozone.
Again, European medicine has led the way. However, more and more U.S. doctors who practice outside of insurance constraints and many regenerative medicine physicans, are using ozone with excellent success rates and with much fewer side effects than surgery or medications.
Is Ozone Therapy Right For You?
As mentioned above, Ozone can be used in a variety of therapeutic manners and the number of conditions it can treat is almost limitless. If you, or someone you know, suffers from any of the following, please keep reading, because Ozone Therapy could change your life. Also, understand that Ozone, when combined with other therapies is even more powerful than just Ozone alone.

Truly Significant Results
We have seen truly significant results over the past 3 years in treating patients with a variety of conditions. Recently, a young woman who suffered with debilitating migraines and daily headaches has been pain free for months. Will she need another treatment in the future? Possibly, but to go months pain free without the need for prescription medications that kept her from working or going to school is significant. We have seen the elimination of joint pain, acute and chronic, with Ozone injections. Patients with acute viral illnesses have also found a shorter duration of illness or actually stopping the virus in its tracks.
