What is Ozone Therapy?

Ozone therapy is an alternative medical procedure that harnesses the power of ozone – a special kind of oxygen molecule – to bring a range of health benefits from improved circulation and pain relief to immune system support. Ozone molecules can be used to benefit our bodies in a number of ways – and while it is yet to be FDA-approved, research into the potential benefits of ozone therapy is well-established.

How Does Ozone Therapy Work?

Ozone therapy uses O3, a compound that is known for its strong oxidizing properties. Because of this, research shows the body responds by producing more antioxidant enzymes, which can help to reduce inflammation. It is also thought to increase oxygen delivery and help stimulate the immune system, amongst other things.

How Does Ozone TherapyWork? Is It Effective?

Many studies have supported the use of ozone therapy. Interestingly enough, it has been used since the 1800s to treat various health conditions. However, it is not a miracle cure for all ailments. It is important to note that ozone therapy is not a traditional medical treatment. It is important to discuss the risks and benefits with a doctor.

Is Ozone Therapy Safe?

Ozone therapy is not yet FDA-approved, and the side effects are not fully understood. 

The FDA has stated that ozone is a toxic gas, with no known medical benefits. 

Research supports its use for treating diseases and managing age-related disorders. Studies consistently demonstrate its effectiveness and safety, with minimal and preventable side effects.

It’s important to talk with your doctor to make an informed choice about what’s best for you and your unique situation.

Ozone Therapy Procedures

Ozone therapy is achieved by introducing O3 into the body. This can be done in several ways, including:

Ozone Blood Therapy

Also known as autohemotherapy, where blood is taken from your body, mixed with ozone, and injected back in.

It is one of the widely used methods of ozone therapy technique. It involves withdrawing some of the patient’s blood, mixing it with a precise dose of ozone gas, and then reinfusing it back into the patient.

On the other hand, this is a brief procedure where a small amount of blood is drawn from the patient’s vein, combined with ozone in a syringe, and injected into the gluteal muscles. This treatment is typically administered 1-3 times per week, depending on the patient’s condition.

Ozone Sauna Therapy/Oxygen-Ozone Therapy

Where the ozone is inhaled to reach your lungs and other parts of your body.

Ozone Injection Therapy

Ozone Therapy FAQs

The ozone therapy method is when ozone or O3 is administered in the body to treat and prevent different health conditions. It can be mixed with blood, injected, or inhaled.

The effectiveness of ozone therapy can vary depending on the patient's condition and how well they respond to the therapy. In some cases, the effects of ozone therapy may be immediate, while in others, it may take several sessions. Additionally, the duration of benefits can also depend on the underlying health issue being addressed. Some patients may require periodic maintenance treatments to sustain the benefits over time.

The frequency of ozone therapy sessions can vary depending on the patient's health condition, the severity of the condition being treated, and the specific protocol recommended.


For certain conditions, patients might undergo ozone therapy sessions multiple times and then transition to a maintenance schedule with sessions occurring less frequently. However, since no two cases are alike, patients should follow the guidance of their Forum Health provider to determine the appropriate frequency and duration of treatment for their specific needs.
