Ozone Therapy

Ozone Therapy is one of the most popular  and powerful treatments because it affects the whole body without                                                  being invasive.    

Ozone treatment can quickly improve the function of the immune system,help detoxify the body and kill off harmful pathogens.

Ozone Therapy is a medical therapy that has been used worldwide for over 50 years with dramatic success and safety.


What is Ozone Therapy ?

Ozone is an alternate version of oxygen and created when an extra molecule of oxygen attaches to the  O2 oxygen we breathe creating O3. Ozone (O3) behaves completely differently than O2. Ozone is far more energetic and oxidative than Oxygen, which is what makes it so valuable to us for so many applications, such as air purification, water purification, and medical ozone therapy applications.

Unfortunately, oxygen intake gradually declines as we age. It, quite literally, becomes harder to breathe as our cells decay. Decreased oxygen utilization leads to excessive free radical production that causes degenerative diseases and reduces the Nicotinamide adenine dinucleotide (NAD/NADH) ratio. This ratio represents a metabolic regulator of transcription, longevity, and disease. Basically, if the NAD/NADH ratio declines, so does cellular activity.

Ozone is a “supercharged” version of oxygen which makes it unique in helping the body to heal. Its increased energy means that it can work quickly to improve the function of the immune system, which in turn means it is able to effectively fight “foreign bodies” in the body.

Ozone contributes to cellular regeneration and repair:

  • improving circulation and oxygen supply
  • autoimmune disorders
  • decreasing uric acid
  • killing viruses, bacteria and fungus
  • chronic fatigue syndrome
  • chronic pain conditions
  • adjunctive therapy in cancer treatment
  • arthritis
  • acne
  • cellulites, sagging skin, fine lines/wrinkles
  • improving the activity of the white blood cells
  • detoxifying the liver
  • slowing down the aging process

Ozone therapy introduces ozone to the body by the following methods: injections into joints and other parts of the body, ozone sauna, rectal infusion, ear infusion, ozonated drinking water, ozonated topical ointments, and intravenously.

Ozone has been extensively studied and used in medicine for over 100 years. It has proven a safe and effective treatment.

Ozone Sauna

The use of a sauna should be an important part of any detoxification program. The sauna increases the eliminative, detoxifying and cleansing capacity of the skin by stimulation of the sweat glands and also promotes healthy skin tone and texture due to increased blood circulation. Using the steam sauna with ozone allows the steam to surround the body and ozone can be introduced through the skin. Humid heat opens the pores, which allows the ozone through the skin to the bloodstream, where it can travel to the fat and lymph tissue. It is very important to cleanse the lymph tissue of toxins and the ozone/steam sauna is the easiest and best way to accomplish this.
Artificially induced hyperthermia (rising body temperature results in the destruction of bacteria and viruses) combined with heavy sweating and a cleansing effect initiated by ozone will result in elimination of toxins accumulated mainly in the lymphatic system relieving the liver from the difficult task of dealing with them. Through the centuries, men and women have used steam to purify the skin, soothe sore muscles, boost circulation and to simply relax. The combined action of moist heat and ozone cleanse the lymphatic system, which carries 90% of the body’s fluids. Ozone brings oxygen to the tissues for enhanced health and vitality. The combination of steam and ozone is a natural, effective way to promote a refreshing sense of well-being. We believe that an Ozone/Steam Sauna cabinet represents a pleasant and easy to follow form of body cleansing.

Newest research shows steam hyperthermia an effective treatment for: 

  • Increases blood circulation
  • Increases blood oxygen level and metabolism (anti-aging)
  • Increases core body temperature
  • Combats and disposes of pathogens and toxins (detox)
  • Relaxes muscle tension
  • Pain management
  • Immune system deficiencies
  • Increases energy levels
  • Increasing body metabolism
  • Burns up to 600 calories per session
  • Cancer






Prolozone®Pain Therapy       

From the American Academy of Ozonotherapy website:

Prolozone® is a homeopathic/oxygen injection technique developed and pioneered by Dr. Shallenberger. It is excellent for all forms of musculo-skeletal and joint pain including chronic neck and back pain, rotator cuff injuries, degenerative and arthritic hips and knees, degenerated discs, and shoulder and elbow pain. The good thing about Prolozone is that because it actually corrects the pathology of the disorder, there is a 75% chance for the chronic pain sufferer to becoming permanently pain free.


Prolozone is derived from the Latin word “proli” “proliferate”, meaning to produce new cells in rapid succession to regenerate or rebuild tissues with ozone. Ozone is the most highly active form of oxygen in the universe. Prolozone uses the power of oxygen to cause damaged tissues, joints, ligaments, and tendons to regenerate. This usually causes a complete healing, and a permanent end to pain.


The reason that some injuries completely heal and others don’t has to do with circulation. In order for a damaged area of the body to regenerate and heal, it must have the critical elements that only the blood can provide: vitamins, minerals, and oxygen.

Of these, by far the most important is oxygen. Low levels of oxygen cause an accumulation of lactic acid, which is what causes pain. Prolozone works in three ways. First, homeopathic anti-inflammatory medications are injected into the injured area to reduce inflammation and swelling. This leads to increased circulation. Next, the area is treated with vitamins and minerals that are critical for healing. And finally, the area is infiltrated with oxygen in the form of ozone. The result is that the tissues get what they need to heal. And as they heal, the circulation to the area is re-established, and the treatment is complete. The response to treatment varies from person to person, but most people only need from 3-5 treatments.

What will you experience?

The majority of our clients report little to no pain during the treatment. Over 80% of the patients feel immediate improvement. Prolozone injections use special treatment solution and Active Oxygen. As a result you may experience some mild discomfort, swelling and stiffness in the area that can last from 1 hour to a couple days. What is special treatment solution is made off? Special solution is made of natural ingredients and can be injected to improve cellular nutrition. It can include herbal extracts, dextrose, saline, B vitamins, peptides, cellular stimulants and possibly some homeopathic ingredients.

Conditions That Can Be Treated With Prolozone

Prolozone works on just about any pain problem you might have, including:

neck pain, whiplash, degenerated or herniated discs, low back pain, plantar fascitis, carpal tunnel syndrome, torn tendons, TMJ syndrome, sciatica, heel spurs, neuromas, tennis elbow, rotator cuff tears, knee injuries, and virtually any other sports injury.

Because Prolozone treatments also result in cartilage regeneration, the technique is also remarkably effective even for severe cases of osteo arthritis of the hip or knee. The good thing about Prolozone is that it is not just a treatment for pain. The results actually represent a permanent fix.

This article by Dr. Shallenberger explains the history, mechanism, indications and patient results  from prolozone.


          So if you are living with chronic pain, Prolozone Therapy could help you.

Major Autohemotherapy (MAH) Ozone Treatment

MAH is the most common, and in most cases the most effective way ozone is administered. Major Autohemotherapy is a safe and powerful procedure that helps the body activate its own immune system and free radical scavengers which in turn help to clean up what  doesn’t belong in the body. It is widely used in inflammatory conditions, like circulatory issues and wounds that are slow to heal, or chronic infections

 Major Autohemotherapy is performed by removing some of your blood and  infusing it with ozone ,  then putting it back into your body by IV. It appears that when ozone is injected into the treated sample of blood it destroys any pathogens and when it is injected back into the person it has the effect of an autogenous (self-generated) vaccine. The patient relaxes in a chair in the IV room and has 100-250ml of blood removed into a sterilized IV bag. Then ozone is injected into the bag, which is gently shaken, allowing the red and white blood cells to take up the ozone. The ozonated blood is then returned to the body via IV drip. The Major Autohemotherapy boosting the immune system, cleansing the blood, and improving oxygen delivery to tissue. Major Autohemotherapy helps the body activate its own immune system and has been safely used for decades throughout the entire world.  

An alternative method to Major Autohemotherapy has become widely spread and more popular. It is known as drip phleboclysis of ozonated saline. The method is simple to use. Sterile saline on being barbotaged with ozone/oxygen mixture in a flask is to be infused intravenously.

The first use of ozone intravenously (major autohemotherapy) was done in the 1940s and 1950s and its development is credited to Dr. H. Wolff. It’s the most common ozone treatment today and is used by thousands of physicians worldwide in countries like Germany, Austria, Switzerland, Italy, France, England and Canada as well as in Russia, Eastern Europe, Cuba and Mexico.

Because Major Autohemotherapy boosts the immune system and supports detoxification anyone can benefit. However, here are some specific conditions it has been used for:

  • Cancers
  • Lyme disease
  • Chemical Sensitivities
  • Chronic Allergies
  • Autoimmune Disease
  • Candidiasis
  • Chronic fatigue syndrome
  • Fibromyalgia
  • Lupus
  • Osteo and Rheumatoid arthritis
  • Colds and flu
  • Hepatitis B and C
  • Epstein-Barr virus
  • Herpes simplex and Zoster viruses
  • Streptococcal infections
  • Staphylococcal infections
  • Dementia and Cerebral Vascular Disease
  • Post Stroke
  • Macular Degeneration
  • Circulatory problems
