ozone therapy

In medicine, ozone therapy is used to disinfect and treat diseases by
limiting the effects of bacteria, viruses, fungi, yeast, and protozoa.
Ozone is used in IV form, or direct injection form such as prolozone therapy.


Ozone is a colorless gas made up of three oxygen atoms. It is used as an alternative therapy to improve the body's intake and use of oxygen and to activate the immune system. In medicine, ozone therapy is used to disinfect and treat diseases by limiting the effects of bacteria, viruses, fungi, yeast, and protozoa.
Ozone is used in IV form, or direct injection form such as prolozone therapy.


Prolozone is a form of non-surgical ligament reconstruction and is a permanent treatment for chronic pain. Prolozone is a connective tissue injection therapy of collagen producing substances and ozone gas which can reconstruct damaged or weakened connective tissue in and around joints. These substances are injected into the damaged connective tissue in and around a joint to rebuild the damaged areas. By repairing the connective tissue this is all that is needed to permanently reverse chronic pain.


Prolozone Therapy is an injection technique similar to Prolotherapy that uses ozone. The use of ozone causes the joint to heal much more quickly than in traditional Prolotherapy. This is because ozone is a highly reactive molecule and when injected into a joint capsule it is able to stimulate the fibroblastic joint repairing abilities. Prolozone is derived from the word ozone and the Latin word “proli” which means to regenerate or re-build. It literally means re-building tissues with ozone. It is important to understand what the word Prolozone actually means. “Prolo” is short for proliferation, because the treatment causes the proliferation (growth, formation) of new ligament tissue in areas where it has become weak.


Ligaments are the structural “rubber bands” that hold bones to bones in joints – acting like the body’s shock absorbers. Ligaments can become weak or injured and may not heal back to their original strength or endurance. Ligaments will also not tighten on their own to their original length once injured. This is largely because the blood supply to ligaments is limited, and therefore healing is slow and not always complete. To further complicate this, ligaments also have many nerve endings, and therefore the person will feel pain at the areas where the ligaments are damaged or loose.


Prolozone causes repair and tightening of the lax structures, partially torn connective tissue and ligaments. Prolozone halts the pain/inflammation cycle. This allows for better circulation, increased blood flow carrying nutrition, and hydration of the damaged tissues. This allows for a healing environment within the joint to develop and results in increased range of motion and decreased pain.


Ozone IV therapy is administered using a high dose 10-pass treatment program. Ten passes ozone treatment, or ten times the treatment of a single pass, can be given within 60-90 minutes by using a special ozone machine. The 10-pass is a very powerful and safe treatment. It is used to treat:

  • Infections

  • Inflammation

  • Auto-immune disease

  • Chronic fatigue

  • Fibromyalgia

  • Chronic pain

  • Multiple neurologic conditions including Parkinson’s

  • Multiple sclerosis (MS)

  • Stroke

  • Brain and spinal cord inflammation of various types

  • Lyme disease

  • Shingles

  • Recurrent herpes simplex

  • Influenza

  • Pneumonia

  • Infected wounds

  • Circulatory disorder

  • Geriatric disorders

  • Macular degeneration

  • Viral disease

  • Rheumatism and arthritis

  • Ulcerative colitissinus

  • Lung issues



Although ozone is not specifically a cancer therapy, it can support the immune system of individuals with cancer, including those on chemotherapy or radiation therapy.

There have been promising studies examining how ozone may be beneficial to health by:

  • inactivating bacteria, viruses, fungi, parasites, yeast, and protozoa

  • stimulating the immune system to speed up healing

  • improving circulation by cleaning the arteries and veins

  • having anti-inflammatory properties

  • reducing pain

  • stopping bleeding

  • limiting stroke damage

  • reducing the risk of complications from diabetes"
