For over a century, doctors have been using Ozonetherapy with great success in the treatment of a variety of systemic illnesses. Ozonetherapy simultenously destroys cells that have been damaged by infection or chronic inflammation and stimulates the defense mechanisms of healthy cells. Ozonetherapy is effective for regulating the immune system, and is of great benefit to anyone suffering from allergies, autoimmune conditions, or inflammatory conditions (the root cause of many chronic diseases).

One of the main forms of ozone administration is called Major Autohemotherapy (MAH). In this procedure, a small amount of the patient’s blood is collected in an IV bag, ozone/oxygen is then mixed with the blood, and the blood is dripped back into the patient. Other than the initial needle stick, this is a painless and quick in-office procedure.

Mechanisms of action for ozone therapy:

  • Supports tissue repair by enhancing the release of growth factors
  • Up-regulates free radical scavengers such as glutathione peroxidase, catalase and superoxide dismutase
  • Supports and modulates the immune system
  • Improves oxygen delivery to cells by stimulating oxygen metabolism  
  • Increases production of cellular energy in the form of ATP
  •  Improves blood circulation and decreases blood viscosity
  • Maintains Red Blood Cell membrane integrity
  • Reduces chronic inflammation

Ozonetherapy is useful for:

  • Chronic fatigue syndrome
  • Chronic pain syndromes (due to multiple causes)
  • Acute cold/flu
  • Diabetes mellitus type II and associated complications
  • Migraine headaches (vascular and cluster headaches)
  • Immune Disorders including Autoimmune Diseases 
  • Infectious Diseases (chronic hepatitis, herpes, Lyme disease)
  • Parkinson's Disease and Alzheimer's Disease
  • Dementia
  • Dry macular degeneration
  • Rheumatoid Arthritis
  • Fibromyalgia
  • Canker sores
  • Various dental infections
  • Seasonal allergies
  • Interstitial cystitis
  • Heart and Blood Vessel Diseases
  • Peripheral vascular disease (poor circulation)
  • Cerebral vascular disease (stroke and memory loss)
  • Cardiovascular disease (heart disease)
  • Coronary spasm (angina)
  • Cardiac arrhythmias (irregular heartbeat)
  • Gangrene (of fingers and toes)
  • Raynaud's disease ("white finger")
  • Temporal arteritis (inflammation of the temporal artery)
  • Type II Hypersensitive reactions (environmental and universal reactors) 
  • Cancer – As adjunct to conventional treatment
