What is ozone therapy?

Ozone is a gas made up of three oxygen atoms. This enriched form differs from the oxygen in the air you breathe, which has two oxygen atoms.

Ozone therapy is a treatment in which your provider introduces ozone into your body. Connect Integrative Medicine performs intravenous (IV) ozone therapy called 10-pass therapy that injects ozone directly into your bloodstream, making it safe and effective. What are the benefits of ozone therapy?

When would I need ozone therapy?

Ozone therapy has the potential to improve many conditions throughout your body. Connect Integrative Medicine may recommend this treatment for problems such as:

  • Back pain
  • Diabetes
  • High cholesterol
  • Fibromyalgia
  • Chronic inflammation
  • Recurrent infections
  • Peripheral artery disease

Though it’s unsafe to breathe in ozone directly, ozone therapy may improve lung conditions by increasing oxygen levels in your bloodstream.

Ozone therapy may also support anti-aging therapies and help your injuries recover faster, especially if you have a slow-healing wound.

What is ozone 10 pass therapy?

Ozone 10-pass therapy gives you a much higher dose of oxygen than a single infusion. During 10-pass therapy, your provider removes blood using a closed chamber, adds a high concentration of ozone under pressure, and then infuses that blood back into your body.

The procedure is called 10-pass therapy because your provider repeats the process (removing blood and adding more ozone) 10 times.

What should I expect during ozone therapy?

Before recommending ozone therapy, your provider completes a workup, including a physical exam and possibly blood tests. After diagnosing the condition causing your symptoms, they decide if you should start another treatment first or begin ozone therapy.

During your infusion, you relax in a comfortable treatment chair. Then your provider inserts an IV needle and starts the ozone infusion.

If you have recurrent infections or conditions that don’t improve with conventional medical care, call Connect Integrative Medicine or book online today to learn more about ozone therapy.
