Ozone Therapy Q & A

What is ozone therapy?

Your body operates optimally when your oxygen system is working properly, but breakdowns in its function frequently occur because of lack of exercise, poor diet, surgery, environmental factors, chemotherapy, improper breathing techniques, and/or smoking.

Ozone therapy is a fast-growing alternative therapy that uses a colorless gas called ozone to boost your immune response, detoxify your body, and disinfect wounds. Essentially, ozone is a form of oxygen that your doctor uses for medicinal purposes. During your ozone therapy session at Artius Integrative Medicine’s state-of-the-art clinic, your body receives a controlled rush of ozone to relieve your pain and restore your quality of life.

How is ozone administered?

Since it’s a gas, there are several ways that medical technology has made it possible for you to receive ozone therapy:

  • Inhalation via a fine mist
  • Intravenous ozone infusions into a vein
  • Insufflation into your ear or rectum
  • Ingestion of water or olive oil that’s infused with ozone
  • Transdermally via sauna

The team at Artius Integrative Medicine uses Prolozone™, which is a nonsurgical, natural solution for chronic pain.

What conditions are treated with ozone therapy?

Ozone therapy is a safe and effective treatment for a range of diseases and conditions, including:

  • Infectious diseases
  • Multiple sclerosis
  • Alzheimer’s disease
  • Fibromyalgia
  • Arthritis
  • Irritable bowel disease
  • Macular degeneration
  • Cancer
  • HIV/AIDS
  • Candida
  • Epstein-Barr
  • Lyme disease
  • Heart disease
  • Headaches
  • Sciatica
  • Tendinitis

Ozone can even be used for skin problems like acne, psoriasis, and eczema.

What is Prolozone?

Prolozone therapy is an injection technique that relies on ozone to repair and rebuild your connective tissue. It’s a nonsurgical solution for debilitating musculoskeletal joint and back pain, such as degenerative disk disease and rotator cuff injuries. Typically, doctors inject Prolozone into your spine, soft tissues, neck, joints, and muscles.

What are the benefits of Prolozone?

Prolozone interrupts the cycle of pain and inflammation and accelerates your body’s innate ability to heal itself. Once the process of pain is halted, you’ll have better circulation, enhanced blood flow, and improved hydration.

Most of Artius Integrative Medicine’s patients see improvement in pain and increased range of motion after only one treatment. Your provider develops a custom plan for you so you’ll know how many treatments you’ll need and just what to expect.
