Ozone Therapy

What is Ozone Therapy?

Medical ozone therapy has been used worldwide for more than 100 years. Given in precise dosing, ozone creates an oxidative environment that stimulates our antioxidant pathways. Ozone is used frequently for wound healing, fibromyalgia, chronic infections, and arthritis. 

Forms of administration include:

  • Prolozone injections are used for joint healing and repairing muscle injury
  • Insufflations treat bladder problems, including interstitial cystitis, vaginal ozone to help with fertility, rectal ozone for full body treatments, and ear ozone for head colds and tinnitus
  • Topical ozone can be used for gum and tooth problems, wound healing, reducing acne, and minimizing the effects of aging
  • Oral ozone utilizes ozonated water to help with biofilm in the mouth or for digestive and bladder concerns. Ozone oil capsules can be helpful for some digestion concerns

The Benefits of Ozone Therapy

Studies have illustrated the effectiveness of ozone therapy in treating a wide range of health conditions, from chronic pain to autoimmune disorders. Medical ozone offers a myriad of benefits for individuals suffering from these symptoms, including:

  • Boosting circulation 
  • Improving oxygenation 
  • Enhancing immune function, which promotes faster healing and increased energy levels

In addition, ozone therapy has proven effective for: 

  • Improving macular degeneration  
  • Healing joint tissue
  • Shorten recovery time after surgery
  • Reducing scar tissue
  • Stimulating hair follicle health and new hair growth
  • Minimizing fine lines and wrinkles
  • Improving skin texture from cellulite
  • Moderating blood sugar control in patients with diabetes

Ozone therapy offers an extensive range of benefits. Let us show you how it can work for you. 


Ozone Therapy Patient Success Stories

Below are two examples that demonstrate the healing power of ozone therapy.

Patient Success Story: Separated Shoulder

A 40-year-old female came to us with a partially separated shoulder, accompanied by pain and weakness when weightlifting. Following no improvement for six months, she had two Prolozone injections and experienced mild improvement. She then had three high-dose, systemic ozone treatments. Within one month, her shoulder returned to normal.

Lake Oswego Health Center Ozone Therapies 

We offer an array of ozone therapy treatments designed to treat various conditions. Check out the list below to learn more about our options.

Major Autohemotherapy (MAH): One of the most researched and popular forms of ozone therapy. This is a comfortable IV procedure that takes 30 to 60 minutes. Patients often feel more energy immediately after treatment. MAH benefits include:

  • Reduction of viral load, which speeds the healing time for colds and cases of flu
  • Improving energy by increasing adenosine triphosphate (ATP), a nucleotide that provides energy to drive and support many processes in living cells 
  • Increasing oxygenation of red blood cells
  • Speeding exercise recovery

Minor Autohemotherapy (MiAH): Small ozonated blood injection that increases circulation and energy, eases pain, and boosts the immune system. Following a MiAH series, patients often notice their mood improves, skin rashes and acne are better, and joint pain is minimized.

10-pass Ozone-High-Dose Therapy (OHT): A hyperbaric pressurized system withdraws and re-infuses the blood, exposing it to ozone (similar to dialysis). This treatment results in 2,000 cc of blood being treated, delivering approximately 140,000 mcg of ozone. It is used for patients who need higher doses of ozone. This treatment can also be done with fewer passes.

Ozonated Saline: Can be made into eye drops or used in place of blood for the MAH. This treatment results in immune benefits.

Ozone Water: Ozonated water is highly oxygenated, providing anti-bacterial and anti-inflammatory effects in the gut and body.

Vaginal Insufflation: Using a specialized device, ozone under pressure infuses into the pelvic floor, resulting in improved fertility and a decrease in PMS and endometriosis symptoms. Often used in conjunction with Frankenhauser injections, which are local lower abdominal injections that can help PMS and pelvic floor concerns.

Rectal Insufflation: Can be used in place of MAH—a minimally invasive procedure used to deliver ozone via a catheter gently placed rectally. Published research confirms improved arthritis, digestion, energy, skin health, and mental clarity.

Ear Insufflation: This procedure uses a specialized stethoscope to supply ozone into the ear, which can help with tinnitus, upper respiratory tract infections, brain fog, and inner ear concerns.

Sinus Insufflation: A small amount of ozone is safely delivered to the sinuses. This can be extremely helpful for acute and chronic sinus infections, MRSA/Staph, and Marcons.

Limb Bagging: Skin is moistened with water, and an ozone-resistant bag is placed in the affected area. Ozone fills the bag and is absorbed through the wound and skin. This can be very helpful for diabetic foot ulcers, wound healing, improved circulation, athlete’s foot, and toenail fungus.

Local Injections: This procedure is typically called Prolozone. Ozone is injected locally to help heal arthritis and rotator cuff injuries, minimize inflammation, and stimulate stem cells to come to the area to help in healing. Areas and conditions that respond well to local injections include:

  • Frozen shoulder
  • Arthritis in the back, knees, and hips
  • The conditions below can become minor and less painful:
    • Plantar fasciitis
    • Warts
    • Trigger finger
    • Arthritis nodules
    • Bunions 
    • Varicose vein treatment 
    • Adipose and cellulite reduction
  • Hair growth stimulation through scalp injection 

Chezone: Ozone combined with chelation therapies, which remove toxic metals like lead, mercury, iron, and arsenic from our tissues.

Scar Therapy: Scars are first evaluated for adhesions, which can lead to pain in distal areas, even years later. Common issues we treat include SI (low back) joint pain years after a C-section and frozen shoulder, months to years after breast implant, or reduction surgeries.

Skin Injections: In this non-toxic approach to treatment, a small needle with a very low ozone concentration is used to help stimulate hair growth and minimize fine lines and wrinkles. 

Ozone Oil: Ozonated olive oils can be used topically for bruising, infections, and acne and orally to help digestion.

UV/Ozone IV: Used to activate your immune system and boost immunity. It improves blood circulation as more oxygen travels to your cells, tissues, and organs. It offers protection from bacteria, viruses, and fungi by halting their growth and reducing their survival.

Neural Therapy/Mesotherapy: Neural therapy, which uses procaine and is sometimes combined with ozone therapy, began in the 1920s in Germany and is now used worldwide. Dr. McMonagle has been trained in neural therapy since 2003. It can be used for acute or chronic pain relief and general health concerns.
