Ozone

What is Medical Ozone?

Although ozone is not approved by the FDA for the treatment of any medical disease, it has been used in medicine for many decades. Since it is a natural substance it is not patentable, this is likely one of the reasons why it never became FDA approved.

Primary Uses

Muscles & Joints

Muscles and joints that are suffering from pain or injury have localized areas of inadequate oxygenation to cells. Injecting ozone into these areas can help cellular oxygenation thereby stimulating accelerated healing.

Ozone gas also produces a local tidal wave of antioxidants that neutralize free radicals further accelerating healing.

Ozone is not a pain medicine. It does not mask symptoms, it helps to heal tissue.

When used on a regular basis for arthritic joints the goal is to maintain a healthy joint and stop progressive joint damage. We recommend injections at regular intervals, most typically three months. 

Our standard treatment protocol is to do an injection every two weeks for a series of 3 injections, and then reevaluate the impact of therapy.

Ozone for muscles and joints is injected by the doctor. Local anesthetic injections of lidocaine are sometimes used. Pain level of the injection is non-existent or mild, and resolves in minutes after the injection

Sinus Infections

Ozone kills bacteria, fungus, and viruses upon contact. Ozone gas can be insufflated into the sinuses while the patient holds their breath. This is our preferred approach to patients with upper respiratory

infections. Over 90% of upper respiratory infections are viral and therefore antibiotics have no value.

For acute infections this can be done every day until symptoms are alleviated. For chronic infections the recommended regimen is once a week for four weeks, then reevaluate and adjust the interval as needed.

Patients can get sinus ozone sinus treatments without seeing the doctor.

Sinus ozone can be given in conjunction with our usual immune support supplements, and infusions or quick shots.

Sinus ozone is administered by our specially trained nurses and takes less than 10 minutes.

Ozone "Bagging" for Upper and Lower Extremities

Ozone bagging can be used to treat infections, fungal toenail thickening, neuropathy, eczema, and other conditions of the upper and lower extremities.

The procedure involves placing a plastic bag over the involved extremity. The bag is sealed allowing ozone gas to be pumped into the bag thus coming in contact with the skin.

The procedure is completely painless and is administered by specially trained nurses.

Ozone bagging can be performed without being seen by the doctor. The recommended frequency is weekly for four weeks, then adjusted based upon response.

In some cases of infections, more frequent bagging intervals can be performed.

Rectal Ozone

Helpful for inflammatory bowel conditions, diverticulosis, diverticulitis, ulcerative colitis, Crohn’s, and colo-reactal cancer. Patients can be treated primarily without seeing the doctor. 

Treatment is administered by a specially trained nurse in a private room. The process involves placing a small catheter a short distance into the rectum, then gently pushing in ozone gas. The procedure is painless and takes about 15 minutes. The protocol is to do insufflation every week for 4 weeks then reassess.

Ozonated Oil

This is a product for purchase that you can use at home. It has an olive oil base that has been infused with ozone. The olive oil stabilizes the ozone so it can last for months at room temperature.

This can be safely applied to any area of the skin that is inflamed or irritated.

It can be used on the gumline to treat gingivitis or receding gums.

It can be applied to the lips on a daily basis to prevent cold sores.

Ozone kills bacteria, fungus, and virions, therefore it can be used under the arms and other areas where skin meets skin as a deodorant. This is a wonderful replacement for traditional chemical underarm deodorants.

It can be used on thick irregular toenails that have been colonized with fungus. It should be applied once or twice daily to an uncoated nail. Diligence is required since resolution of this condition can take up to six months.

Ozone ointment can be applied onto joints and tendons that are strained and sore. Studies have demonstrated individuals using it for arthritic knees had an improvement when compared to placebo. In this setting the recommended frequency is twice daily for at least two weeks, then ongoing as needed.
