IV Ozone Therapy: What is Ozone and
How Does it Work?

Oxygen is one of the elements in the air you breathe. Usually, oxygen (what we know as O2) is composed of just two oxygen atoms.

Ozone, on the other hand, uses three oxygen atoms to create a more powerful form of oxygen. In the medical setting, this gas is useful for treating a wide range of conditions.

One question many patients have concerns the safety of ozone—is it toxic? This gas is toxic if you breathe it in or use it in extremely high doses. However, ozone therapy uses safe doses and requires us to administer it into your bloodstream. Medical grade ozone is incredibly safe.

A fun fact is that our bodies actually create ozone naturally. Our white blood cells produce ozone in our immune system response.

** Please be advised that we only offer IV ozone therapy at our Coral Gables location.

3 Benefits of IV Ozone Therapy

Manage Your Immune System

Ozone manages your immune system in several important ways. When your immune system attacks itself, ozone works to calm the hyperactivity. As you may already know, autoimmune disorders are a prominent example of overactive immune systems. When your immune system fails to defend itself, ozone can help your system produce a great defense. This normally happens with underactive immune systems, which is the case with illnesses like cancer. Ozone works so well because it affects your white blood cell membranes and leads them to produce cytokines. Cytokines are a group of proteins that manage your immune system cells.

Improve Blood Circulation

Ozone helps improve the flow quality of your liquid blood. What does that mean? More oxygen carrying hemoglobin can now reach your capillaries. Your cells receive more of the oxygen they need, which is especially important if they’re starved of oxygen. Poor circulation is common in those suffering from chronic inflammation.

Boost Your Oxygen Intake

Ozone helps activate the enzyme diphosphoglycerate (DPG). DPG helps your body release oxygen that your cells can take in. Without DPG, our cells cannot take in enough oxygen—a common issue for diabetic individuals.

Does IV Ozone Therapy Treat My Condition?

IV ozone therapy helps treat a wide range of conditions, including:

  • Heart disease
  • Circulatory disorders
  • Chronic infections (such as herpes or Lyme disease)
  • Chronic fatigue syndrome
  • Fibromyalgia
  • Autoimmune disorders

Prolozone® Therapy: What is it?

Prolozone® therapy is a type of injection therapy. Similar to ozone therapy, these injections use the most powerful form of oxygen—ozone. The difference is that Prolozone® treats conditions that cause pain in the body. With this treatment, your body can start to rebuild damaged tissues, joints, ligaments, and tendons for a permanent end to pain.

How Does Prolozone® Therapy Work to Heal My Body?

Lingering pain can come from an old injury that didn’t heal fully or correctly. Some injuries don’t heal properly due to a lack of proper blood circulation. Your body requires vitamins, minerals, and oxygen for full healing.

Oxygen is especially important. Low oxygen levels cause lactic acid to build in your tissues, causing plenty of pain. To treat this poor circulation and low oxygen, these are the three steps we take:

  1. Increase circulation in the injured part of the body. To do this, we must lower the swelling and inflammation in the area. At this stage, your practitioner will use homeopathic anti-swelling injections.
  2. Improve healing. For this stage of the treatment, your practitioner will use vitamins and minerals to promote rejuvenation.
  3. Continue to boost circulation for full healing. We end by using ozone injections in the injured tissues to improve blood circulation in your damaged tissues, which ultimately leads to a complete recovery.

Does Prolozone® Therapy Treat My Condition?

This treatment is effective for any condition that causes pain, including but not limited to:

  • Neck pain
  • Lower back pain
  • Herniated discs
  • Plantar fasciitis
  • Carpal tunnel
  • Sciatica
