Ozone (O3) is a modified form of oxygen, produced from
oxygen (O2) in an electric generator.
It is produced as a gas, with powerful oxidizing properties and multiple
medical uses, both intravenously and locally.
Ozone increases oxygen utilization by improving the ratio of
NAD/NADH. NAD is a major component of
the Krebs cycle, the energy-producing system in mitochondria. Mitochondria supply energy for all cellular
functions. Aging and age-related
diseases result from degeneration of the energy cycle and a decline in energy
Ozone resolves infections from bacteria, viruses, and fungi
by increasing production of cytokines, chemical messengers made by white blood
cells to enlist immune support. It also
stimulates antioxidant enzymes like glutathione, which help ameliorate
autoimmune diseases including rheumatoid arthritis, lupus, Crohn’s disease, and

- Major auto-hemotherapy (MAH): This is a systemic therapy,
used in the treatment of autoimmune disease, heart disease and stroke, cancer
as an adjunctive therapy, chronic fatigue and fibromyalgia, acute and chronic
infections including Lyme disease, shingles and herpes simplex, pneumonia and
urinary tract infections. It is also
used to treat degenerative conditions such as macular degeneration. It may be used in combination with
ultraviolet light therapy to treat infection and autoimmune disease.
Six ounces, or about 200 cc of blood is withdrawn from a
vein, and combined with heparin to prevent clotting. Two hundred cc of ozone is
added and lightly mixed. The blood is
then reinfused into the patient. The
process takes 30-40 minutes altogether, and has virtually no side effects. It is repeated twice a week or more in acute
situations, and once a month for maintenance.
Patients should be well-hydrated and well-fed before
therapy, and should avoid taking any nutritional supplements on the day of
therapy. MAH is contraindicated during
pregnancy, or with recent myocardial infarction, active bleeding,
hyperthyroidism, very low platelet count, or G6PD deficiency.
- Rectal insufflation: treats Crohn’s disease, ulcerative
colitis or proctitis, diverticulitis, pouchitis. After defecation, a catheter is inserted into the rectum, and
ozone is injected directly, using a syringe. Gas should be retained for 40
minutes. Therapy can be performed in
conjunction with MAH.
- Bladder insufflation: treats interstitial cystitis and
acute cystitis. Introduce a catheter
into the bladder, drain the bladder, and inject a combination of procaine,
traumeel, heparin, steroid and saline, then remove the catheter. After 20 minutes, reinsert the catheter and
inject ozone. Treatment can be repeated
several times a week.
- Sinus infection and inflammation, and dental infection:
Inject procaine followed by ozone into the soft gingival tissue, at the base of
the canine teeth for sinus infection, or at the base of the involved tooth for
- Ozonated saline: ozone can be bubbled into saltwater
(saline), and this solution can be applied orally, vaginally, rectally, or
applied to eyes, skin, or ears to treat infections. When refrigerated, it can be used for five days.
- Limb bagging: to treat ulcers or infection, the arm or
leg is wrapped in a plastic bag, secured with an ace wrap after air is
expelled, and ozone is then let into the bag. Treatment lasts 30 minutes and
can be employed several times daily.
- Prolozone: This is an injection used to treat tendon,
ligament, muscle or joint problems, including low back pain. The involved area
is injected with procaine, glucose, vitamins and minerals to support healing,
and then with ozone through the same needle.
It can effectively resolve pain and inflammation, and repair damaged
areas without surgery. Prolozone injections may also resolve carpal tunnel
syndrome, plantar fasciitis, Dupuytren’s contractures, and pain from
- Ozone in olive oil: Olive oil can retain a high
concentration of ozone indefinitely. As
a cream or stick, ozone in olive oil can treat hemorrhoids or rectal pain,
warts, or fungal infection of the toenails.
