Forms of therapy – How is ozone administered?

An ozone treatment is always preceded by a thorough examination and an exact diagnosis. The appropriate form of treatment is then selected in consultation with the patient. Treatment is always with a gas mixture of medical oxygen and ozone , the ozone content is in the microgram range (µg). For understandable reasons, however, one speaks of ozone – in the medical context, this always means the ozone-oxygen mixture.

 Emergence and Effects Indication & Contraindication

Because ozone is a very unstable compound, it cannot be easily stored like oxygen, CO2 or other gases. The active substance ozone is generated “on site” with an ozone device from medical oxygen .

 26 national and international ozone therapy associations and medical ozone societies have agreed on  application and dosage recommendations for the various forms of application in the  ” Declaration of Madrid on ozone therapy

The following video describes first impressions, using the example of the large autohemotherapy:

Major autologous treatment
About 100 ml of blood is taken from the patient’s arm vein, enriched with ozone in a sterile bottle and then returned as an infusion.
This treatment achieves its high effectiveness by activating metabolic processes in the red and white blood cells.
The treatment is carried out once or twice a week and lasts about 30 minutes.
As a rule, 10 to 15 treatments are carried out in a therapy cycle.
Application examples
· circulatory disorders
· infections
· old age
· regeneration
Small autohemotherapy
Blood is taken from the patient’s vein and mixed with ozone in the syringe.
The enriched blood is injected back into the patient’s buttock muscle or under the skin.
The immune system reacts to this stimulus with increased activity and increased formation of antibodies.
A treatment takes about 10 minutes.
Application examples
· Allergies
· Infections
· Immune activation
· Liver diseases
Bag treatment (ozone fumigation)
For external application of ozone, the affected part of the body is isolated with a plastic bag.
A mixture of ozone and oxygen is introduced and sucked off again after the exposure time.
The ozone disinfects, stimulates blood circulation and accelerates wound healing.
A treatment takes about 20 minutes.
Application examples
· Abscesses
· Wounds
· Infections
Ozone bell treatment
The body part to be treated is isolated with a glass bell (similar to a cupping glass).
A continuous flow of gas is passed through the bell for 5 to 10 minutes at a slight negative pressure.
The acting ozone improves wound healing through its microbicidal properties, the ozone treatment promotes wound cleaning and tissue perfusion.
Examples of use
· bedsores
· diabetic gangrene
· fistulas
· bad,
healing wounds
Ozonated water
Pure water can easily be enriched with ozone.
Since ozone has limited solubility in water and saturation is reached quickly, treating skin diseases and injuries is a safe and easily dosed application.
It is applied as a spray or compress.
Above all, the disinfecting effect of the ozone improves the healing process.
Application examples
· Abscesses
· Wounds
· Infections
Intradiscal infiltration (Ozone Nucleolysis)
Ozone is injected into the intervertebral disc under the control of imaging methods (X-ray/MRT).
Ozone reduces the water content and causes the core of the intervertebral disc to shrink. It also promotes blood circulation and has an anti-inflammatory effect.
This micro-invasive method is a low-risk alternative to disc surgery, with a 69 percent success rate (approximately 18 percent of patients require additional surgery).
Application examples
· disc degeneration
· prolapse
Intra-articular injection
Infiltrations with ozone (1 to 20 ml volume, depending on the size of the joint) to reduce inflammation and activate the immune system, especially in shoulder and knee joint diseases.Application examples
· rheumatoid arthritis
· arthrosis
· gonarthrosis
Rectal insufflation
Rectal insufflation with ozone has a disinfecting, anti-inflammatory and immune-activating effect.
It is used for inflammatory bowel diseases or tissue injuries.
For this purpose, gas volumes of 50 to 300 ml of ozone are administered, eg using a bladder syringe with a catheter.
A series of treatments with 10 applications is often sufficient.
Examples of use
· Proctitis
· Colitis
