What is Ozone?
Ozone occurs naturally in the atmosphere when solar ultraviolet radiation combines Oxygen (O2) and an additional oxygen atom to form O3.
This super-reactive molecule, O3 (a negatively charged molecule) attracts positively charged pollutants and toxic agents and micro-organisms. In nature, ozone acts a protective shield for life on earth.
What is Ozone Therapy?
Ozone therapy is an alternative medical treatment that introduces ozone to the body.
Ozone as an oxidizer has been used medically since at least the late 1800’s for a number of health conditions in humans. In the body, ozone therapy has been used to directly and indirectly enhance the immune system.
Ozone Therapy Treatment in Miami
For those seeking holistic alternative medicine in Miami, Ozone treatment may be the best solution.
Ozone has potent modulating effects on the immune system. It may stimulate an under-performing immune system (as with cancer and chronic infections), and it may calm an overactive immune system (as with auto-immune disease).
Like other IV treatments, ozone IV treatments are administered intravenously. This treatment is different in that blood is drawn and the ozone gas is dissolved into the blood. The treated blood is then injected back into the body through an IV.
Benefits of Ozone Therapy
Ozone causes an increase in the enzyme diphosphoglycerate (DPG). DPG is critical for the release of oxygen by red blood cells to the body’s tissues. Without optimal functioning of DPG, cells are starved for oxygen and the energy generation necessary to fund all the chemical processes to be a healthy cell. This can lead to a buildup of acidic and free radical by-products, which slowly poison the cell, resulting in a vicious cycle downward leading to degenerative disease, chronic infections and cancer.
Ozone also has a positive effect on blood circulation and stimulates antioxidant systems better than other therapies (including vitamin C).
Ozone therapies can be used to:
- improve chronic joint and back pain
- improve circulation and increase oxygen delivery to organs and tissues
- improve/modulate the immune system
- improve the efficiency of oxygen delivery from hemoglobin to the tissues
- improve the flexibility of red blood cells to enter capillaries to deliver oxygen
- improve the function of mitochondria (sub cellular energy producing structures)
- counteract viruses, fungi, yeast and bacteria

Ozone Therapy Safety
Although Europe accepts ozone therapy as a medical practice, it is not FDA approved in the US. However, nationally and internationally, there is documented evidence for its use in the management of symptoms for a variety of chronic infections, chronic inflammatory response syndrome, chronic fatigue syndrome, auto-immune disorders, arthritis, detoxification support and for general health maintenance.
Medical ozone therapy is considered a safe procedure, but a consultation with the doctor is required to be sure that you are a good candidate for the procedure.
