What is Ozone Therapy?
Ozone (O3) is a molecule that consists of three oxygen atoms all sharing the same electrons. Ozone is a very unstable molecule which happens to be exactly why it is so powerful.
Ozone is generated by passing pure, medical-grade oxygen through a tube in which energy is directed. This generates ozone as a clear, gaseous, powerful molecule. Ozone therapy is an effective treatment for many diseases as it reverses poor oxygen utilization within the body.
This happens through the formation of ozonides (when ozone comes into contact with lipids and amino acids) which increase the NAD/NADH ratio. Oxygen utilization appears to be the single most important determinant of health, aging and degenerative disease.
Oxygen utilization does naturally decline with age but is commonly found in young, otherwise healthy-appearing adults. Poor oxygen utilization is indicative of mitochondrial dysfunction, and we know how important our mitochondria are.
Ozone is a molecule that is made up of three oxygen atoms, denoted in the chemical formula O3. Oxygen is O2; ozone is O3. It is important to differentiate between medical ozone and environmental ozone, as they are commonly confused. Environmental ozone is a known pollutant that can be harsh on mucus membranes and is typically unsafe; medical ozone, safely and precisely administered, does not generally have any side effects. We make medical-grade ozone (O3) by using medical oxygen (O2) and an electromagnetically charged ion machine to attach O to the O2 (O(1) + O2 = O3).
During an ozone treatment, blood is withdrawn and mixed with normal saline and ozone gas. The O3 quickly turns back into O and O2 as it mixes with blood and saline, and an IV drip returns the hyper-oxygenated fluid back into the bloodstream, where it can begin to help modulate immune responses.
Treating a wide variety of health conditions
Specific therapeutic applications of ozone therapy include the treatment of circulatory problems, viral diseases, ulcers, AIDS, certain forms of cancer, burns, wounds, scars, gangrene, and liver disease.
An environment of low oxygen (or hypoxic) state can create acidic, pathogen-ridden conditions that make it hard for healthy cells to survive and thrive.
Ozone therapy seeks to reverse hypoxic conditions in the body, supporting healthy body environments by bringing oxygen to areas that need it most.

Types of Ozone Therapy & Administration
IV Ozone Treatment
Intravenous ozone therapy is used to treat a variety of conditions, including autoimmune disorders, infections of bacterial, viral, fungal, and protozoan origin, chronic fatigue, Lyme disease, and more.
Major-Auto Hemotherapy (MAH)
"the Gold Standard of treatment"
The highest concentrations of ozone can be delivered to the entire body with this treatment
Nasal, Vaginal & Rectal
Can be done in combination with MAH on the same day.
Systemic effects are received, though the concentration amount of ozone that can be delivered is much less than major-auto hemotherapy.
