At A Glance:

Overview – Ozone (O3) is a gas with use in many industries, but medical applications have distinct differences. Its medical history dates back to 1871 and saw an increase in WWI. Safety – Ozone as a gas is harmful to breathe but scientific data shows a higher safety record than aspirin when used correctly. Different tissues respond differently to medical ozone gas, which is why you cannot breathe it but could have an intravenous therapy.

Benefits – The primary actions of ozone therapy include increased oxygen efficiency, immune modulation, mediated oxidative stress, and improved microcirculation. People often report increased energy, cognitive function, endurance, and decreased pain.

How Ozone Therapy is Administered

There are two primary categories for ozone administration. The first is a systemic form of administration. Medical researchers and practitioners claim that this yields a stimulation of fundamental processes in the body. The second is a local form of administration which may have a positive effect for tissue damage in that localized area.

Diseases Treated

Ozone therapy treats a lot but cures nothing. It has a fundamental action to the body which allows the body to rebalance and heal itself. There is a more in depth list attached.

What Is Ozone Therapy?

Ozone therapy is the administration of a small dose of medical grade ozone gas into the body. It can be administered via the veins, rectum, vagina, ears, skin, or other safe places (we’ll cover safety below). It’s an alternative therapy that’s growing in popularity, and may be beneficial for a variety of ailments because of its proposed ability to rebalance complex systems in the body.

If you’re like a lot of people, you’ve gone through all the recommendations of traditional medicine without seeing the results you want. Not like you’re asking for anything crazy – you just want to be free from sickness without popping endless pills. And after all the time, money, and energy you invest, you deserve those results.

We understand what it’s like to feel trapped by illness in the medical system. We are frustrated by the lack of results and clarity. Sorting through all the information shouldn’t be so difficult. There should be a clear answer.

Although we don’t promise to alleviate all your problems, we do want to provide one piece of the puzzle – objective information about ozone therapy.

Ozone therapy is used in four primary areas:

  • Medical applications for chronic disease, preventative, and optimization
  • Dental administration for oral health
  • Joint injections for pain and regeneration
  • Cosmetic injections for beauty, scars, and regeneration

Overview Of Ozone Therapy

Ozone Gas for Ozone Therapy

Ozone is a gas composed of three oxygen atoms (O3), a close relationship to oxygen (O2). Unlike oxygen, ozone is extremely unstable because that extra oxygen atom wants to break off and combine with other molecules; a process called oxidation.

Most people only know about ozone because of pollution or the ozone layer. The ozone layer is a layer of ozone gas in the atmosphere that protects us from harmful ultraviolet rays. Ground level ozone is created during a chemical reaction from pollution and is harmful to breathe (more on that later).

While ozone is harmful to the lungs, scientists have found that pure, medical grade ozone gas can be applied in many beneficial ways.

Benefits Of Ozone Therapy

Systemic Treatment Benefits:
  • May improve oxygenation (7, 8, 9, 10, 11)
  • May mediate oxidative stress, a leading cause of aging and disease (12, 13, 14, 15, 16, 17, 18, 19)
  • May modulate the immune system, improves an underperforming immune system and rebalances an autoimmune issue (20, 21, 22, 23, 24)
  • Improves blood flow and microcirculation (25, 26, 27)
  • Reduces microbial load in the body; acts as anti-viral, anti-bacterial (Lyme), anti-fungal, anti-spore, and anti-parasitic. It helps eliminate these organisms from the tissue and blood (28,29,30).

What people experience:

  • Increased energy
  • Sense of wellbeing
  • Increased endurance
  • Improved cognitive function/decreased brain fog
  • Reduced Pain
  • Diseases Treated And Uses


The therapeutic properties of ozone may positively impact a wide variety of diseases,

conditions, and injuries. As an alternative medicine, ozone therapy is often used alongside other treatments or as a preventative practice. It’s rarely administered as the sole treatment for an ailment but is synergistic with many therapies — even invasive ones like chemotherapy.

Preventative Care and Biohacking

Ozone therapy is used as a method to improve overall quality of life. In addition to treating medical issues and enhancing athletic performance, people often use it to help mediate oxidative stress — which may be helpful in preventing disease and improving cognitive function. We have another full page on biohacking and preventative care with ozone therapy.

  • Athletics
  • Cancer
  • Infections
  • Autoimmune Diseases

Local treatments

Specific regions like the mouth, hand, or vagina may benefit from local ozone therapy treatments.

  • Infections (29)
  • Non-healing wounds (30)
  • Ulcers (31)
  • Cavitations/Oral Infections (32)

Contraindications (Reasons To Avoid Ozone Therapy)

  • Pregnancy
  • Blood clotting issues
  • Anemia
  • Ozone Allergy
  • Side Effects

We don’t list all the potential side effects here but have listed the most common. The reason is because there are many routes of applications and most of them have inconsequential effects, such as discomfort from inserting a needle into the arm or cramping from too much gas during a rectal insufflation.

These are potential negative side effects of ozone therapy:

  • Herxheimer reaction – Nausea and flu-like symptoms from activating the immune system and endotoxin release from a lot of pathogens being killed quickly
  • Coughing and chest discomfort if too much ozone is accidentally inhaled
  • Cramps from rectal insufflation, usually too much gas or too strong
  • Rash due to an ozone allergy or detox reaction (you know the difference because an ozone allergy, although rare, will show itself on small exposure to ozone)
  • Itching, dryness, and discomfort during ear insufflation

How Long Does It Take For Results?

We can’t say for certain because it depends on many factors.

However, many people experience more energy and reduced brain fog after 4-6 IV ozone treatments

Some other claimed benefits:

  • Boosted Energy that can last into your 60s, 70s, 80s, or beyond
