What is Ozone Therapy?
The Natural Wellness Center is the leading experts in the medical use
of ozone in the United States. Ozone therapy is a unique
form of therapy that both heals and detoxifies at the same
time. It used to treat a variety of chronic disease
including cardiovascular disease, diabetes, Lyme disease,
chronic hepatitis, herpes, chronic fatigue states,
chemical sensitivity, macular degeneration, chronic
bladder conditions, colitis, auto-immune diseases, and
What Is Ozone?
The oxygen you breathe is present in the
air as a pair of oxygen atoms. This is the most stable
form of oxygen, and itís colorless. Ozone is a blue
colored form of oxygen (it's what makes the sky blue), and
unlike regular oxygen, it is composed of three oxygen
atoms instead of two. It is the addition of the third
oxygen atom that makes ozone ďsuperchargedĒ oxygen, and
gives it all of its remarkable medical properties.
The use of ozone to treat various medical
conditions was first developed in Germany in the early
1950's. Today, medical ozone therapy is common throughout
Europe, and its use has gradually been spreading in
America over the last 25 years.
Ozone Is Toxic Isn't It?
Anything, including water and oxygen, is toxic if given
in amounts that exceed the body's capacity to utilize it.
Ozone is found naturally in the body. The white cells make
it as part of the immune response. Pure medical grade
ozone, when it is used according to the established
medical guidelines, has a safety record that is
Medical Properties Of Ozone
Ozone has five properties that account for why it works
so well not only for macular degeneration, but also for
most other chronic age related conditions as well:
- Ozone is a potent regulator of the immune system.
This means that when the immune system is overactive (as
in auto-immune disease), ozone will calm it down.
Conversely, when the immune system is under active as in
cancer, AIDS, and chronic infections, ozone will
stimulate it. This unique ability of ozone stems from
its action on the membranes of white cells that causes
them to produce immune related messenger molecules
called cytokines. Examples of cytokines are gamma
interferon, interleukin-2, colony stimulating factor,
and TNF-alpha just to name a few.
- Ozone stimulates increased uptake of oxygen by
stimulating the enzyme diphosphoglycerate (DPG). DPG
enables the release of oxygen from the hemoglobin
molecule so that it can be taken up into the cell. In
the absence of an adequate amount of DPG, our cells
become starved for oxygen. This is a common problem in
- Ozone improves circulation. It does this by
enhancing the flow characteristics of blood as a liquid.
This effect enables more of the oxygen carrying
hemoglobin to reach the capillaries where ultimately the
cells will receive more of the oxygen they require. Many
patients with chronic inflammatory conditions have
- Ozone increases antioxidant protection more than any
other therapy including vitamin C.Most people with
chronic disease have deficient antioxidant defenses.
- Ozone is a powerful mitochondrial stimulant. The
fundamental underlying cause behind all
degenerative disease from diabetes to heart disease to
cancer is decreased mitochondrial energy production.
Ozone can often correct this problem.
How Is Ozone Used Medically?
Ozone therapy should only be used by professionals who
have been fully trained in its use.
Autotherapy is the most common, and in most cases the
most effective way ozone is administered. The patient sits
in a chair and has from 6-12 ounces of blood removed into
a sterilized bottle. Then ozone is injected into the
bottle, and the bottle is gently shaken, allowing the red
and white blood cells to take up the ozone. The ozonated
blood is then returned to the body. The entire procedure
takes about 30-40 minutes. --

Is Ozone Therapy For Me?
This is a decision for a doctor who is trained and
experienced in the medical use of ozone. Some conditions
simply will not clear up unless ozone is used, and of
course many conditions will clear up without ozone.
Because of its many therapeutic properties, ozone can be
used as part of a therapeutic plan for almost every
It is invaluable in the treatment of heart disease and
circulatory disorders. Chronic infections such as
hepatitis-C, herpes, Lyme, and AIDS respond very favorably
to ozone. It is also very helpful in chronic fatigue
syndrome, fibromyalgia, and autoimmune diseases.
It is important to realize that ozone therapy is not a
panacea or some kind of magic bullet. Although it is often
an indispensable modality, it is only rarely effective by
itself. In the great majority of cases it must be combined
with an individualized program of other alternative and
natural therapies, such as nutrition and detoxification.

highly effective adjunct to EDTA chelation therapy. It is
useful in ischemic heart disease, angina, myocardial
infection and ischemic arrhythmia, and cardiomyopathy.
Ozone helps to eliminate any drugs, alcohol or
environmental toxins that may contribute to heart or
vascular disease. It has produced dramatic improvements in
peripheral vascular disease, and relieved claudication,
ischemic cramps and ischemic ulcers. Ozone with EDTA has
produced excellent results in cerebrovascular
insufficiency, fibromuscular dysplasia, lupus erythmatosus,
polyateritis, nodosa, granulomatous angiitis, Takayasu

Ozone helps minimize the effects of
radiation treatment/poisoning, such as decreased libido,
amenorrhea, anemia, leukopenia, thrombopenia, skin
cancers, osteosarcoma, pneumonitis, pericarditis,
myocarditis and myopathy.
applications of medical ozone include performance
enhancement, increased longevity, accelerated wound
healing, dentistry, heart disease, all infections,
treatment of all gastro-enteric diseases, immune
stimulation, treatment of all cancers, and gerontology.
Ozone also combines well with intravenous chelation
therapy which is used to treat arterial disease or heavy
metal toxicity. Chelation therapy works quite slowly
through a number of infusions, and adding ozone can speed
this process up.
provides an immediate oxygen boost to heart tissue which
can noticeably reduce the incidence of angina. It also
improves brain function, because the brain uses over 15%
of all the oxygen in the body.
therapeutic applications of ozone include the treatment of
vascular disease such as stroke, obstructive arteriopathy,
venous insufficiency, cancer, acute and chronic viral
disease, ulcers, infected wounds, gangrenes, burns,
inflammatory bowel disease such as Krohn's disease,
ulcerative colitis and spinal disc problems. It is also
used in dentistry as a disinfectant and in pediatrics for
the treatment of viral and bacterial infections of the
intestines. In geriatrics, its principal indication is in
circulatory disorders. In particular the increase of
oxygen supply to the brain is of great benefit. Ozone,
with all its miraculous properties and accompanied by it
lack of toxicity, is undoubtedly an important tool in
medicine. It is an unusual double-edged sword. It defends
the body via its stimulation of the immune system and at
the same time it improves oxygenation and metabolism. I do
believe that ozone deserves a place in the management of
health and disease. It is up to us, patients and
physicians, to demand access to this wonderful healing
Ozone therapy may be
administered in a variety of ways:
injection: A mixture of oxygen and ozone is injected
into the muscles of the buttocks.
insufflation: A mixture of oxygen and ozone is
introduced into the rectum and absorbed through the
Between 10-15 mL of the patientís blood is removed,
treated with a mixture of oxygen and ozone and
re-injected into the patient.
Injection: Ozone-treated water is injected into the
patientís joints to treat arthritis, rheumatism and
other joint diseases.
Ozone is bubbled through water that is used to cleanse
wounds, burns, and skin infections, or to treat the
mouth after dental surgery.
Ozone is bubbled through olive or safflower oil, forming
a cream that is used to treat fungal infections, insect
bites, acne, and skin problems.
Ozone and oxygen are pumped into an airtight bag that
surrounds the area to be treated, allowing the body
tissues to absorb the mixture.
Patients interested in oxygen/ozone therapies must consult
with a physician before receiving treatment. Patients with
a history of pneumothorax, chest surgery, emphysema,
middle ear surgery, uncontrolled high fevers, seizure, or disorders of the red
blood cells are not suitable candidates for oxygen/ozone
therapy. In addition, patients should be aware that oxygen
is highly flammable. If treatments are administered
incorrectly or by and unskilled person, there is a risk of
Typical side effects of oxygen or ozone therapy can
include elevated blood pressure and ear pressure similar
to that experienced while flying. Side effects may also
include headache, numbness in the fingers, temporary
changes in the lens of the eye, and seizures.
RESEARCH AND GENERAL ACCEPTANCE:
Oxygen/ozone therapies are far more widely accepted in
Europe than in the United States. The most intensive
research in these therapies is presently being conducted
in the former Soviet Union and Cuba. In the United States,
the work of the Baylor researchers was not followed up. As
of 2000, however, the Office of Alternative Medicine of
the National Institute of Health has indicated interest in
conducting clinical trials of oxygen/ozone therapies.
In Europe, United States and Canada, ozone therapies may be administered by licensed
naturopaths as well as by medical doctors.
