What is Ozone?
Dr. Shallenberger, foremost authority of ozone therapy, has said: “Ozone is molecular O3, versus the regular form of oxygen we’re breathing right now, which is molecular O2, meaning that while regular oxygen contains two oxygen atoms, ozone contains three.” In other words, ozone is just another form of oxygen. Ozone treatments have been used in Europe since the 1950’s.

Who Can Have Ozone Treatments?
Anyone who has diabetes, cancer, auto immune, gut issues, chronic pain, etc.
Who Cannot Have Ozone Treatments?
Anyone who is on blood thinners or any medication that make your blood thin, any type of blood disorder where you don’t clot, if you have a history of blood clots, if you are pregnant or lactating.
How Does It Work?
There are a few methods to having ozone treatments.
- Intravenous. We take your blood and add ozone to it and give it back to you through intravenous means.
- Injection prolozone. Prolozone is where ozone is injected into joints and ligaments to help bring inflammation down.
- Injection muscular. This is a process where we ozonate your blood and then inject the ozonated blood back into a muscle.
How Long Is the Treatment?
With Intravenous and muscular, treatment times can vary from 30-60 minutes. With prolozone injections, the time is much shorter.
How Many Sessions Do I Need?
The minimum amount of session is 6 to start feeling the benefits of it.
What Else Is Added to the Ozone?
With intravenous IV and muscular injection, heparin is added to the drawn blood to prevent clotting. Ozonated blood is typically run through UV light treatment to help kill off any bacteria, viruses, molds, and fungus before putting it back in your body. Intravenous ozonated blood treatments can be combined with some traditional IV treatments. Talk with our doctor about combining ozone with traditional IV’s to see what is appropriate for your treatment plan.
Are There Any Side Effects?
There are hardly any side effects from ozone. If you are getting prolozone you may have a warming feeling in the area where the injection is going into, but that usually subsides within 30 seconds after the injection. If you are getting Intravenous or Intramuscular watch for infection at the site of where the needle is, redness, swelling, achiness. Negative effects are few and far between.
