Ozone (O3) therapy has been used and extensively studied for many decades. Its effects proven and consistent with very minimal side effects. Medical O3, has been used treat disease and has been around for over 150 years. Some common uses treat infections, wounds, and multiple diseases, in which O3’s effectiveness has been well-documented. Ozone is known to treat as many as 114 diseases. During the first world war (1914-18) doctors familiar with O3’s properties, and with few other medical resources available to them, applied it topically to infected wounds and discovered O3 not only remedied infection, but also had hemodynamic and anti-inflammatory properties.
In the late 1980s, reports had emerged that German physicians were successfully treating HIV patients with O3 Autohemotherapy (AHT). There was then no pharmaceutical treatment for HIV and a pandemic was feared, so Canadian authorities authorized the study to test safety and efficacy of O3 AHT in AIDS patients. Many great research studies can be found on treatment efficacy of Ozone. Many medical personnel are using Ozone for treatment and gaining excellent results. Ozone is used in a variety of ways. Within our clinic here are some of the routes used therapeutically. Also, it should be mentioned you do not have to have a disease to be treated with Ozone as this therapy has shown to have great results in athletes, anti-aging, and just over-all prevention of disease.
All of us have the potential for developing chronic disease. When our body is overflowed with stressors, we begin to develop symptoms. Oxygen is one of the most important elements to our life, even more than food or water. Ozone therapy oxygenates the body by improving metabolic efficiency. Chronic oxidative stress is widely believed to be a root cause of aging and inflammation in which scientists believe chronic oxidative stress can be reversed with ozone therapy. An imbalanced immune system can lead to a cascade of issues. Ozone therapy is claimed to have an not only an immune modulating effect, but overall reboot the body and assist with what it needs.
MAJOR HYPERBARIC (HIGH DOSE) AUTOHEMOTHERAPY
Ozone is a molecule composed of 3 atoms of oxygen (O3). It can significantly improve biochemical pathways, metabolism in the body, break up bacterial cells, disrupt virus reproduction, and destroy toxins. In fact, our immune cells naturally produce ozone in our bodies. Ozone increases oxygenation and improves blood flow throughout the entire body so imagine the healing that can take place in your body over a quick amount of time. Lyme disease, Rheumatoid arthritis, Osteoarthritis, Auto-immune diseases, and infections are just a few areas in which Ozone is showing to be effective. One of the strongest methods of getting Ozone in the body is by ozone blood treatments.
One very effective Ozone blood treatment is Major Autohemotherapy (MAH). At our clinic we use a method developed by the Austrian Dr. Lahodny and taught by Dr. Robert Rowen called 10-pass hyperbaric MAH. With this method, a small amount, 200cc’s of your blood is infused into a container, mixed with heparin (to prevent clotting) and Ozone, and then infused back into your body. Each time this is done it is called one pass. This is repeated until ten passes are completed.
All medical staff have been trained by Dr. Rowen, Dr. Terri Su, and his staff to ensure you are given the best therapy available. All our clinics have the top of the line equipment, and are very familiar in using the Zotzmann machine as it is one of the best Ozone generators made. Your medical professional will discuss with you how many passes of Ozone needed according to your individualized treatment plan.
Dr. Robert Rowen demonstrated an impressive case study on a severe autoimmune disease, dermatomyositis. The patient received high doses of prednisone and other immune suppressing drugs, but nothing helped. By removing an oral infection and regular ozone therapy, Dr. Rowen reversed the symptoms and brought these patients’ immune system into balance. During our training with Dr. Rowen, we got to meet and discuss with this patient his amazing results. This study can also be found online.
The most effective treatment in treating pain is injecting Ozone into joints/painful areas with a process called Prolozone. A local anesthetic may be injected first, and then the ozone. The oxygen in the ozone creates the energy needed for cells to regenerate and repair and improves circulation.Ozone has been found to significantly attenuate inflammation and toxic molecules associated with arthritis and tissue damage. Pain relief often can be immediate and often is long-lasting, even when the local anesthetic wears off. Some popular areas injected with Ozone and taught to our staff by Dr. Rowen are included in his videos are:
- Knee, ankle, and should joint pain
- Back pain from the cervical to lumbar region
- Hip pain
- Wrist pain (carpal tunnel) and hand pain (arthritis)
- Vaginal pain (sexual dysfunction or pain) and cervical pain (cervicitis)
- Prostate (prostatitis and enlarged prostate)
- Penile (erectile dysfunction)
- Muscle pain-trigger point injections
Dr. Rowen (our instructor/mentor) is also a recognized leader in the use of Prolozone Therapy, and teaches this procedure to doctors/practitioners worldwide.

Ear insufflation is another therapy using Ozone placed in a small plastic bag and delivered to the ears using a stethoscope. It is usually self-administered, or assistance can be given if needed. Ear insufflation uses are numerous, but some uses are ear infections, sinus infection, brain fog, decrease inflammation, tinnitus, hearing loss, and also stimulate growth factors in the ear. Ear insufflation also promotes systemic circulation of Ozone therefore can get some of the same effects as MAH.
When done correctly and with the proper equipment, ozone ear insufflation has minimal risk. There are some reports of irritation to the ear canal due to too strong of a dose or sensitivity to ozone. If irritation occurs, people generally discontinue the use of ozone ear insufflation or reduce the length of the therapy to decrease the dose. The irritation is not permanent and should resolve itself quickly.
Rectal insufflation is another method of treatment with Ozone using a very small catheter that is inserted gently into the rectum and the Ozone is pushed into the rectal tissue from an Ozone filled bag. Rectal Ozone has so many uses. Not only does it clean out the colon, but also gets rid of toxins in the body through reguar cleanout. Rectal insufflation not only oxygenates the body, but creates a domino effect of positive reactions such as:
- Increase oxygen efficiency (improve athleticism)
- Regulate oxidative stress (cell repair, anti-aging, decrease chronic inflammation)
- Improve blood circulation
- Detoxify body on a cellular level
- Stimulate the immune system
- Stimulate own stem cell growth
The results are limitless. Please do your research as there are countless studies available of the benefits of Ozone therapy and insufflation.
The process of vaginal insufflation is the same as rectal with a catheter except Ozone is placed into the vagina rather than the rectum. Vaginal insufflation is great for bacterial vaginosis, herpes, vaginal yeast infection, vaginal pain, and many ailments that penetrate the vaginal area. Although systemic Ozone can be absorbed as with rectal insufflation, the absorption is not as high through the vaginal walls as with the rectum therefore systemic results are better doing rectal insufflation unless a vaginal issue needs resoled. Many women suffer chronic vaginal issues therefore vaginal insufflation is a great treatment. Some irritation of the vaginal tissue could occur, but resolves pretty quickly with an Ozone dosage change and/or less treatments. Antibiotics have been overused in our country and especially in women due to vaginal infections. When all has failed, come see us and try Ozone.
Bladder insufflation is a wonderful treatment for patients suffering from bladder issues such as interstitial cystitis, urinary tract infections, and even bladder cancer. Many studies are available to research the great effects Ozone has on the bladder. Bladder insufflation is achieved by sterile procedure where a practitioner inserts a sterile catheter into the bladder and inserts a prescribed amount of Ozone according to treatment plan. Usually bladder insufflation is used when other treatments have failed.
