Ozone therapy is an alternate version of oxygen therapy.

On a molecular level, oxygen in the air we breathe is two atoms of oxygen bonded together known as "O2".  Ozone is an ‘activated’ form of oxygen.  An electrical charge splits one atom of oxygen into two.  This naturally occurring process bonds three atoms of oxygen together, forming a molecule that is known as “O3” or Ozone.  O3 absolutely behaves differently than O2.  Ozone is far more energetic and oxidative than oxygen, making it much more valuable for medical applications.

In the late 1800s, technologies were developed to harness ultraviolet radiation and corona discharge electricity in contact with concentrated air in oxygen tanks.  The resulting machines known as 'ozone generators' use highly specified equipment to ensure efficacy and safety for the user.  No plastic, rubber, or metal can be used, otherwise the pure ozone that is produced could be contaminated.  

Ozone is considered to be an 'oxidizer'; it destroys bacteria, viruses, parasites, amoebas, molds, fungus, and breaks down harmful chemicals and impurities.  It is 35 times more powerful than chlorine and yet leaves no harmful byproducts behind.  When used properly and in the correct amounts, it is completely non-toxic.  It is widely used in aquaculture, agriculture, food preservation, air purification and water purification systems.  Medical ozone therapy treatments are used openly in clinics around the world, primarily in Europe, Asia, and South America.  It is beginning to gain notoriety in the United States.

Ozone has many, many uses and applications in the field of medicine.  It affects the biochemistry of the body, getting to the root cause of disease.  Ozone modulates a weakened immune system for improved overall function, increasing oxygen delivery to all the tissues and cells.  Oxygen is responsible for the ATP energy of each individual cell, enabling the cells' ability to perform metabolic functions.  Without oxygen, cellular waste and death occurs.  If our cells die, our organs cease to function.  Ozone treatments deliver oxygen directly to areas of sustained injury or illness, thereby supporting metabolic activity, immunity and overall health.

Ozone therapy is best administered by a trained professional.  Ozone can be applied with rectal, auricular or vaginal insufflations, topically for wound healing,  with ozone saunas, minor or major autohemotherapy, or consumed as ozonated water.  At-home therapy may be recommended by a healthcare provider.  If you are interested in receiving further guidance or treatment, visit to find an Ozone Doctor near you.
