Welcome to the amazing world of Ozone therapy! Alternative treatments are not dispensed from a pharmacy like the majority of modern medicine. Many common therapies used outside the United States are not implemented in American education. Modern medicine physicians offer pain relievers, immunosuppressants and surgery but these treatments do very little to find the underlying cause of DIS-ease.
Ozone is considered among the most useful and energetic agents recognized by science! It’s therapeutic possibilities are attributed to its ability to provide blood oxygenation through the extra molecule of oxygen found in 03 compound known as a free radical. The extra oxygen molecule is transported to organs and tissues to be absorbed, which oxidizes waste and facilitates its removal. Specifically, ozone boosts metabolism without expanding vital energy.
Medical ozone is actually anti-bacterial, anti-viral and anti-fungal in function. Therefore, it helps modulate the immune system and is effective in treating a variety of health conditions including burns, slow healing wounds, skin ulcers, chronic infections, viral and bacterial infections, diabetic improvements, cardiovascular improvements, macular degeneration, joint disease and chronic pain. It can also be used for cosmetic enhancement: anti-aging facials, a safe alternative to botox, cellulite reduction and improves hair loss.
Ozone therapy supports the fundamental systems of the body. Rather than addressing the primary issue, ozone helps by improving overall bodily function. Therefore, it is able to help so many different problems.
Ozone therapy is very versatile and treatments are administered using many different techniques: topically, subcutaneously, intramuscularly, intravenously are most popular. Water can be enhanced with ozone and consumed by drinking it. The gas itself can also be administered orally, rectally and vaginally. Due to the fact that ozone is harmful when inhaled, only a trained specialist should administer treatment.
Ozone (O3) is three molecules of oxygen combined together. The goal of an ozone treatment is to force oxygen into the cells of the body. Ozone enters the mitochondria of the cells, repairing it (the energy production of the cell) and helps decrease fatigue and better utilize oxygen in the cells. This has been shown to treat a variety of chronic illnesses. It has been proven that cancer and disease grow very poorly in oxygenated tissue. Ozone triggers the white blood cells to start producing antibodies which will prevent the immune system from attacking healthy cells. Ozone helps to reduce oxidation of the cells promoting natural antioxidant properties and decreases the level of acidity in the body. Ozone is not an approved therapy by the FDA. Ozone has been used in countries in Europe for 50-70 years and is used in everyday practice to treat and prevent a large variety of illness. Ozone is naturally occurring and non-patentable substance. Unfortunately, big Pharma is not going to financially back studies on Ozone treatments as it is not a money maker for drug companies. Despite the lack of FDA approval, its use for many years in other countries and countless studies and clinical evidence show its healing properties.
Is Ozone Therapy Safe?
The administration of medical Ozone has a safety history that is unprecedented in modern medicine! Dr. Velio Bocci, the formost researcher in the use of medical ozone, states that from 1950 to 1986 in Central Europe there were no “untoward effects” in 340,000 ozone treatments. In an article by M.Jacobs, the records of 384,775 patients treated with different ozone modalities for a variety of medical conditions were examined. There were 5,579,238 treatments administered to these 384,775 patients with an incidence of “accidents” of 0.0007% or 39 “accidents” in absolute numbers. This is a safety margin far greater than that of aspirin.
Dr. Frank Shallenberger, President of the American Ozone Association & pioneer in the use of medical ozone in America, states that one must inhale an ozone concentration of 20 gamma for over one minute to cause permanent lung damage. Just one breath or even a sniff of 20 gamma ozone will lead to severe coughing spasms. More than one inhalation is physically impossible, let alone a 60 second exposure.
The bottom line is that as long as the administration of medical ozone is performed according to proper guidelines, it is one of the safest modalities used in medicine!
Cosmetic Ozone Therapy
Cosmetic Ozone is a fascinating and effective treatment that uses growth factors from your own blood to reverse the signs of aging without the side effects of artificial fillers, chemicals or surgery. It is one of the most progressive fields in ozone therapy!
It has the ability to treat acne, rosacea, hair loss, remove scars, reverse wrinkles, cellulite and improve your skins ability to retain water. All of these conditions reflect the internal state of the patient, therefore we treat not only from the outside, but also on the inside!
Over time, if not cared for, the skin becomes exhausted, keratin layers increase and we lose elasticity due to free radicals. Free radicals disrupt the production and maintenance of collagen in the skin. When collagen fibers are inadequate in number or misaligned the skin structure starts to break down. As it breaks down, we lose elasticity and wrinkles begin to form.
Cosmetic Ozone works because it acts on the exterior and interior process of your body unlike traditional cosmetic procedures. It triggers collagen production and helps tighten, smooth and improve skin tone. Ozone treats skin degradation at the source by improving cell efficiency. This is achieved through the improvement of microcirculation, oxygenation and energy supply of cells.
Contraindications are signals for which Ozone may be damaging rather than therapeutic. Avoid ozone therapy if you suffer from any of the following conditions:
-G-6PD deficiency or favism (very rare)
-Serious cardiovascular instability
-Patient is being treated with ace inhibitors which cause blood vessels to enlarge or dilate and blood pressure is reduced
-Any Bleeding disorders/bleeding organs
-Thrombocytopenia (deficiency of blood platelets that causes internal bleeding and an inability to form blood clots)
-Hemorrhagic or apoplectic stroke
-Ozone allergy or intolerance (very rare)
Other things to consider:
-Use or recently used Acutane for acne
-Still have active acne resulting in new scarring
-Have a history of poor wound healing
-Have undergone skin radiation in the last 12 months
What Are the Side Effects of Ozone Therapy?
The most common complaints of patients who have undergone ozone therapy are minor side effects including weakness, slight dizziness, or sleepiness- none of which last long.
ALL THINGS OZONE!!
BASIC LAB WORK MAY BE NECESSARY IN SOME CASES AND CAN BE COLLECTED DURING YOUR INITIAL INTAKE.
Frequency of treatments depends on the illness and the severity of symptoms. Ozone is a naturally occurring substance and helps the body repair in a natural manner. Ozone therapy is best described as a crawl and not a sprint. It is best to think of Ozone therapy as a process.
Those who have seen the greatest benefit have needed several treatments. Getting on top of the symptoms is always the hardest part. Ozone therapy affects everybody differently and improvement is usually noted in the first 4 to 6 treatments. This being said, the more treatments you do in the beginning, the faster the symptoms will be controlled. In the beginning, the treatments are best effective when received once a week until the symptoms are controlled for the entire week.
After the symptoms are under control, the frequency of treatments reduce according to how your body responds. Once the symptoms are maintained for the entire week, we start to cut back on treatments from weekly to every other week, to once a month, with the eventual goal to be getting a treatment every 4 to 6 months for maintenance. Ozone is not a permanent cure or a miracle. It is a process. As our cells continually deteriorate with aging and time, you may notice the symptoms return.
At this point, your body may require a boost. For some this frequency of treatments may be not possible due to time or financial reasons. If so, we can proceed with a protocol that works for you. It may take more time to resolve the symptoms. However, even getting a treatment once a month is better than doing none.
MAJOR AUTOHEMOTHERAPY (MAH) Alone
Add on BPT: "The DOUBLESHOT" $250
Add on BPT & Modified Meyer's Plus Cocktail: "The Triple Shot" $475
This procedure is similar to Ozonated Saline but instead of saline, we use your blood. It only requires one IV and uses about 60ml's of blood (which is less than a person would typically give when donating blood). Once the 60 ml's has moved from your body to the bag, Oxygen/Ozone is infused directly into the bag of blood. It is then infused back into your body. This procedure is approximately 30% more effective than the ozonated saline because of the initial interaction with the blood before it re-enters the body. With the Major Autohemotherapy, all the ozone is being absorbed into the red and white blood cells in the bag before it ever enters your bloodstream giving you the full effect and 100% of the ozone.
This treatment is commonly coupled with BPT UV light therapy (biophotonic therapy) & some form of IV nutrient therapy. Your provider will determine any additional therapy needed.
*NOTE: IF YOU HAVE SMALL, FRAGILE OR "DIFFICULT" VEINS (I.E. TROUBLE GETTING BLOOD DRAWN OR RECEIVING IVS), IT IS POSSIBLE YOU MAY NOT BE ABLE TO RECEIVE MAH. IF THIS IS THE CASE, DESPITE BEST EFFORTS TO PROVIDE YOU WITH THE TREATMENT, YOU WILL STILL BE CHARGED FOR THE VISIT. PLEASE SPECIFY WHEN BOOKING*
INSUFFLATION PACKAGE: Buy 10 INSUFFLATION THERAPIES!!
$450 (Save $50)
Insufflations can be done daily or 3-5 times a week for increased control of symptoms.
As the name suggests, Rectal Insufflation refers to introducing ozone into the body through the rectum. Oxygen (O2) has been infused rectally during surgery for years, due to the fact that oxygen is easily absorbed through the walls of the colon. The same is true for ozone. This method can be used for multiple disease processes from colon related conditions to chronic autoimmune conditions. Rectal Insufflation is useful in the colon as well as being absorbed into the bloodstream and is up to 90% as effective as Ozonated saline. This is an ideal method for the patient that has a needle aversion, to help augment the IV treatments and for those where IV is too costly. During rectal insufflations, a mix of ozone/oxygen is introduced through a catheter into the colon. It is an oxygen gas enema. The ozone helps remove inflammation and kills pathogens like bacteria, viruses, parasites and yeast. It can help restore healthy gut flora.
We perform vaginal insufflations by infusing ozone gas into the vagina with the use of a small catheter. The ozone gas usually finds its way into the uterus, out the fallopian tube, and into the abdominal cavity. This treatment is used for female related issues such as PMS, endometriosis, candida, fibroids, etc. It can also address issues such as abdominal concerns or chronic fatigue due to ozone’s ability to diffuse into the abdomen and blood stream.
Can be preformed in office, however, most people prefer to buy the ozone bag, have it filled with ozone in the office and then client can has the option to administer in the clinic restroom or be taken home.
During ear insufflation, ozone gas mix is slowly introduced into the ears via a modified stethoscope. The ear canal produces a waxy / oily substance which allows the lipophilic ozone to penetrate and saturate the outer and middle ear, as well as passive diffusion to brain circulation. Ear insufflations are used to help with brain fog, ear infections, tinnitus and vertigo.
Ozone is filtered through a specialized oil and then inhaled through the nostrils through a nasal cannula. The Ozone helps the white blood cells to produce antibodies to address infections or allergies of the nasal passage ways. Sinus insufflation also helps to decrease inflammation and pressure in the sinus cavity that is a culprit with acute or chronic sinusitis, acute upper respiratory infections, asthma, bronchitis, etc.
OZONE JOINT THERAPY aka "PROLOZONE"
$250 (Single injection/joint/scar)
Add on single location injection: $85
Add on CGF-PRP $100
Prolozone Therapy is a non-surgical procedure to eliminate or drastically reduce pain by facilitating the body’s own natural ability to heal itself. Prolozone is derived from the Latin word “prolix”, which means to proliferate, regenerate and rebuild. Prolozone Therapy is so named because the treatment uses ozone to cause the proliferation, regeneration and rebuilding of new ligament and cartilage tissue in an area where they have become weak.
Ligaments are the structural “rubber bands” that hold the bones, joints and intervertebral discs together. They can become weak or injured from injury, excessive use or surgery, and often times do not heal back to their original strength and tightness. When this happens, it puts a strain on the area that the ligaments are supposed to be holding together, resulting in pain and arthritis in the bones, discs and joints. Ligaments have many nerve endings which can provide an additional source of pain.
How Does Prolozone Therapy Work?
Prolozone Therapy involves the injection of ozone in and around ligaments where they attach to the bone. The injected ozone increases blood supply and flow of healing nutrients. It also stimulates deposition and activity of cells called fibroblasts and chondroblasts. Ozone is a naturally-occurring, highly reactive molecule consisting of three atoms of oxygen. Because ozone is highly reactive, it is able to stimulate the fibroblastic and chondroblastic cellular activity, thus enhancing the repair cycle by increasing available oxygen and nutrients to the new forming tissue.
Prolozone Therapy is a safe, natural and often permanent treatment. All the research indicates there are no side effects when properly implemented.
