The Comprehensive Guide to Ozone Therapy Benefits

May 4, 2024
Minute Read

Ozone therapy has gained popularity as a potential alternative treatment method. This practice uses Ozone gas which is comprised of three oxygen atoms. Ozone therapy is introduced into the body through different administrations in order to treat various conditions. While the existing literature is limited, and there are many inconclusive studies regarding its efficacy, there has been increasing interest in the application of this contemporary medicine.

Ozone therapy: what is it and how is it administered

Ozone therapy is a form of treatment that introduces ozone gas into your body. Ozone gas is a type of oxygen that has three oxygen molecules but it is not something that you can safely breathe and instead has to be medically administered in a safe and secure fashion.

This can be achieved through many measures, such as:

  • IV infusions
  • Injections
  • Topical applications
  • Rectal insufflation 

*Note: Ozone gas causes irritation to the lungs, so it should never be inhaled. For this reason, when the gas is administered medically, it is often blown directly into the body through other orifices or administered with ozonated water. 


Autohemotherapy is an administration method where part of your blood is taken and mixed with the gas before it is then re-administered. 


Insufflation is an administration method where the gas is blown directly into an orifice. Given the toxic nature of ozone gas when inhaled through the lungs, this method is often done through the rectum. 


Topical applications can include mixtures of ozone gas with water that are then applied to the body directly through a special bagged administration or through an IV infusion. 

How ozone therapy works

From a molecular standpoint, when ozone gas comes into contact with your body, it releases certain molecules in your tissue and causes chemical reactivity. This can result in things like:

  1. Binding to certain proteins
  2. Changing cellular signals 
  3. Regulating gene expression
  4. Increasing or decreasing enzyme activity 

This means ozone therapy treatment has effects on oxygen metabolism and immune response modulation, helping to do away with symptoms of chronic oxidative stress or other types of toxicity. 

Benefits of ozone therapy

Ozone therapy treatment has several health benefits, the most important of which is the introduction of increased oxygen to the body, which can help the body with processes like immune function and detoxification. 

- General health improvement

In terms of your general health improvement, ozone therapy has the potential to enhance your sleep and athletic performance, combat the effects of aging, support regulation in your immune system, and reduce inflammation. 

It can also promote detoxification, boost your immune system health and increase your energy levels. All of this works in tandem to improve athletic performance, eliminate waste from the body, increase the healing process, and diminish the risk of complications after things like surgery.

- Disease-specific benefits

There are many disease-specific benefits that can be applied, including:

  • Toxic overload, such as mold toxicity
  • Chronic fatigue and lack of energy
  • Chronic pain like arthritis, fibromyalgia, and musculoskeletal pain
  • Bacterial, viral, and fungal infections
  • Autoimmune disorders like rheumatoid arthritis, multiple sclerosis, thyroid conditions
  • Skin conditions such as wounds, ulcers, and fungal infections
  • Sleep disorders

- Pain management and healing

A big part of the benefits that people enjoy with ozone therapy have to do with chronic pain management and the healing process. By boosting the immune system and helping with healing, individuals are in a better place to recover from things like ulcers or wounds, especially after surgery. Similarly, ozone therapy purportedly helps with chronic pain, including musculoskeletal pain, arthritis, and fibromyalgia.

Who can benefit the most from ozone therapy?

Ozone therapy has been said to:

  • Improve circulation
  • Reduce inflammation
  • Help with detoxification
  • Boost your immune system

For these reasons, it is something applied as an adjunct therapy for the treatment of several things like infections, chronic illnesses, and autoimmune diseases. 

Some reviews have studied the use of ozone therapy treatment for:

  • Arthritis
  • Macular degeneration
  • Heart disease
  • Immune system health

Advantages of ozone therapy compared to traditional treatment methods

Depending on the condition you are treating, ozone therapy can offer several advantages over traditional treatment methods. The biggest advantage is how easy the process is. It doesn't take more than an hour in most cases, and there is no high risk of complications.

Similarly, because of the limited risks associated with ozone therapy treatment, it can easily be incorporated as an adjunct therapy to the rest of your treatment plan without any potential contraindications.
