Ozone as a highly reactive form of oxygen (O3) has been in medical use across the world for decades. The health benefits of ozone therapy are increased antioxidant production which enhances oxygen metabolism, modulating the immune system, reducing oxidative stress and increasing anti-bacterial and anti-viral properties. Ozone will also enhance micro circulation and nutrient exchange, increasing energy and stamina and improving clarity/brain fog.
There are many ways to deliver the ozone to a patient. There is through the blood and Insulfation/bag. In MAH – Major Auto-Hemotherapy ones’ blood is withdrawn and carefully mixed with a measured amount of ozone gas and sterile saline and Heparin an anticlotting agent. The blood is then returned back through the tubing to the patients’ veins.
During ultraviolet blood irradiation (UBI), blood that is taken with the added ozone is then passed carefully through ultraviolet light. One of the most common use cases for UBI therapy is to address lingering, hidden, or drug-resistant bacterial or viral infection and induce a secondary immune response to your blood cells. The added benefit of both therapies can be of benefit to chronic pain, Lyme, fatigue, Epstein Barr Virus, wound healing, athletic enhancement and cancer support.

Ozone Therapy and Prolotherapy for Joint Pain
Ozone gas (O3) generated by a medical ozone generator and injected into the blood or joints can have many beneficial effects on the body for pain, inflammation, chronic infections, and low antioxidants status. For joint pain, it can reduce or eliminate pain from old or new injuries by reducing inflammation and increasing anti-oxidants.
Ozone can be directly injected into a joint space with or without prolotherapy (a liquid mixture of anti-inflammatories and antioxidants) to cause a minor irritation to the joint, which stimulates immune function and the body’s natural healing processes. The key to ozone therapy is the dose of ozone, not the amount of blood that is being recirculated.
Many of our patients feel significantly reduced pain after only one ozone therapy treatment, although it is typical to do 3-4 treatments in succession for maximum benefit.
