Understanding Ozone Therapy

The process of injecting ozone gas into your body to cure an illness or a wound is known as medical ozone therapy. Ozone is a colourless gas composed of three oxygen atoms (O3). Ozone can be utilised to treat medical disorders by stimulating the immune system.
In the clinic, ozone therapy gas is made from medical-grade oxygen sources. It may also be used for disinfection and to treat a range of diseases.

Pure Medical are one of only a few clinics offering medical Ozone Therapy (also known as Major Autohemotherapy) in the UK. Ozone therapy clinical trials are in progress for conditions from heart disease to arthritis.

According to 2018 research, blood ozone therapy may aid with knee osteoarthritis by enhancing range of motion and slowing the progression of the disease.

According to the study, those with rheumatoid arthritis or back pain caused by herniated discs may benefit from blood ozone therapy. However, there are currently insufficient studies on these disorders.

Ozone has also been used and studied in dentistry in a variety of ways.

Ozone therapy refers to the process of administering ozone gas into your body to treat a disease or wound. Ozone is a colourless gas composed of three oxygen atoms (O3).

The immune system is stimulated by ozone, which is utilised to treat medical disorders. It can also be used to disinfect surfaces and cure a variety of illnesses.

Ozone therapy gas is produced in hospitals using medical-grade oxygen sources. Learn more about Ozone therapy here.

What are the Benefits?

What are the Benefits?

Since the end of the nineteenth century, blood ozone therapy has been a common kind of treatment, it has been used in Germany for over 50 years and is becoming increasingly popular around the world. It was first used for its strong and effective antimicrobial properties and for disinfection of drinking water as well as helping people suffering from cholera and typhus.


Thousands of doctors and therapists utilise it in clinics and hospitals around the world because of its exceptional, unrivalled therapeutic capabilities. Multiple studies have shown that it provides significantly more advantages than oxygen treatment, and its numerous application forms make it a sophisticated, powerful, and very effective therapy.

For more than a century, medical ozone has been used to sterilise medical supplies and cure a variety of ailments. It could also aid in the prevention of infection in wounds.

When ozone comes into touch with human fluids, the resultant reactions generate more proteins and red blood cells, according to 2018 research. This boosts your body’s oxygen supply.

Ozone therapy has the potential to interrupt harmful bodily processes. According to studies, ozone therapy can inactivate:

  • Bacteria
  • Viruses
  • Fungi
  • Yeast
  • Protozoa

Ozone Therapy Work?

How Does Ozone Therapy Work?

The most important nutrient that we use in our bodies is oxygen. The benefits of oxygen aren’t just about how much we can take in; they’re also about how that oxygen is used. As we get older, our ability to use oxygen efficiently decreases both locally and systemically, resulting in diminished cellular performance throughout the body. Furthermore, when we don’t get enough oxygen, our bodies produce too many free radicals, which causes degenerative diseases and premature ageing.


Ozone is a gas made up of three oxygen molecules. When given to our bodies, it super-oxygenates the blood, resulting in enhanced production of antioxidant-forming enzymes and improved mitochondrial function. Ozone boosts energy generation and metabolism regulates our immune system and serves as a direct antimicrobial agent by stimulating oxygenation (useful in treating bacteria, viral, parasitic and fungal infections). Ozone reduces the symptoms of ageing and degenerative diseases as a result of these processes.

1, Kills bacteria, viruses, fungi, yeasts and protozoa

Ozone has been shown to destroy the outer shell of most micro-organisms, thereby penetrating the cell membrane and altering the DNA. This is another mechanism by which ozone selectively targets disease-causing micro-organisms, and spares healthy cells.

Repeated treatments of ozone therapy are usually needed because certain viruses and fungi are more susceptible at certain stages of their development. Some micro-organisms are much more resistant than others and will require more treatment. The viruses that contain lipids are more sensitive to deactivation by ozone – Herpes, Mumps, Measles, Influenza, Rabies, HIV and the Chronic Fatigue producing viruses: Epstein Barr, Coxsackie and Cytomegalovirus.

2, Stimulates oxygen metabolism

Ozone causes increased metabolism inside the red blood cells [increased 2,3-DPG], which releases more oxygen to the tissues. Ozone also stimulates the production of enzymes, which act as cell wall protectors and scavengers of free radicals.

3, Formation of Peroxides

When ozone is introduced into the body, it is broken down into free radical agents called peroxides. These have beneficial effects because they are attracted to weakened or diseased cells and react with lipids [fats] in the cell membrane. The enzymes in the healthy, intact cell wall prevent penetration by these peroxides. Thus the peroxides in ozone selectively attack only those cells which contain parasites, viruses etc, or are weakened by cancer or toxins.

4, Enhancement of circulation

In circulatory disease, a clumping of red blood cells hinders blood flow through the small capillaries and decreases oxygen uptake by the red blood cells due to reduced surface area. Blood Ozone Therapy reduces or eliminates clumping, and restores flexibility thereby increasing oxygen-carrying capacity. Improved viscosity of the blood also leads to better oxygenation of the tissues.

Ozone Therapy oxidises the plaque in arteries, which unclogs and frees up the circulation.

5, Dissolution of tumours

Ozone Therapy inhibits cancer cell metabolism. In addition, ozone oxidises the outer lipid layer of cancer cells, thus destroying them.

6, Activation of the immune system

Optimal administration of medical bloody ozone causes an increase in the production of interferon and interleukins, which launch an entire cascade of immunological reactions.

7, Effect on medicines

The potency of any medicine taken concurrently with blood ozone treatment is greatly increased. The unpleasant side effects of toxic, but necessary, medications such as chemotherapy can be greatly minimized by ozone therapy.

What are the possible side effects?

At this time, ozone therapy isn’t extensively used, and it comes with hazards. The odd number of atoms in ozone gas renders it unstable. Because of its volatility, it might be unpredictable.

When employing ozone therapy, healthcare providers should use considerable caution. Ozone must be utilised in the proper quantity and location, and it should never be inhaled.

In the United States, the FDA issued a warning about inhaling ozone in 2019 because it can irritate the lungs and create fluid buildup, making breathing harder.

When utilising ozone intravenously, at high doses, or for an extended period of time, there are considerable risks. Discuss all of the potential hazards with your healthcare physician and weigh them against the potential benefits.

Listed below are the most common side effects of Ozone Therapy

Accidental inhalation may lead to minor symptoms like the burning of eyes, coughing, nausea or vomiting, or mild headache in very sensitive individuals.


Rectally administered ozone may very rarely give mild discomfort, a feeling of passing gas, gurgling, or mild cramps. This is all temporary, mild and passes quickly.


Sometimes a patient may have a Herxheimer (Healing) Reaction (detoxification & healing symptoms) during which a patient may feel flu-like symptoms or feel a bit worse temporarily; this improves on a continuation of therapy. This is not an Ozone side effect but a natural healing process seen in other modalities as well.


Positive Side Effects of Ozone Therapy

Some of the positive side effects that may occur are primary improvements in the target health condition but patients may also experience secondary, positive side effects of ozone therapy such as:
  • Hair and nails grow stronger, longer and faster
  • Skin radiates and takes on a healthy glow
  • More physical energy
  • Ability to fall asleep faster and easier and reports of more restful sleep
  • Needing less sleep

Before having blood ozone therapy at Pure Medical you will be seen by one of our doctors, they will check to see if you’re healthy enough to receive therapy and advice you about the best way to prepare for your treatment.
Ozone Therapy is an integrative treatment used to increase the amount of oxygen in the body through the introduction of ozone into the body. This is achieved through a process known as autohemotherapy, in which blood is drawn from a patient, exposed to ozone and returned intravenously. The effects are both healing and detoxifying – suppressing infection and boosting the immune system.
In addition to ozonating the blood, we pass the patient’s blood through UV light (ultraviolet blood irradiation or UBI) to enhance the body’s immune and circulatory system.


Treatments are usually repeated over days or weeks. You should complete the whole course for the most benefit.


If you are sick or have the following symptoms, your treatment session may be postponed:
  • Severe cold or flu
  • Chest infection
  • Runny nose
  • Sickness (nausea).


How should I prepare for Ozone Therapy?

To prepare for blood ozone therapy, most people don’t need to do anything specific. Before blood ozone therapy, our doctor or professional nurses will offer you instructions to assist you.

Scientific Case Studies

In this section, you will find an array of scientific case studies.

Ozone Therapy for Bacterial Infection

Ozone therapy’s immune system regulation, improved oxygenation, direct antiseptic effects on practically every germ, and capacity to cut through biofilm promise a potential breakthrough in the management of all infections 1, 2.


Ozone Therapy for Viruses

Ozone has proven to be highly effective in killing bacteria, fungi, and moulds and inactivating viruses both on the surfaces and suspended in the air. Ozone is proven to be effective also for the inactivation of the SARS virus, while for the novel SARS-CoV-2 it is supposed that it be equally effective but specific studies are needed 3.


Ozone Therapy stimulates blood circulation

Ozone cures because it promotes metabolism in a holistic way. It enhances blood flow in the afflicted tissues on the one hand. On the other hand, it delivers oxygen, which improves the flow of energy to the inflamed areas 4.


Ozone Therapy for Arthritis & Osteoarthritis

When you use Ozone Therapy, you’re combating the chronic inflammation that comes with arthritis. It boosts the activity of enzymes in your body, which may aid in reducing inflammation at its cause 5.


Ozone Therapy for Diabetes

By eliminating oxidative stress, ozone enhances oxygen supply to the tissues, resulting in better circulation and aiding in the reduction of insulin resistance. It improves blood sugar control as well as infection control. The body’s oxygen metabolism increases when Ozone therapy is used 6, 7.


Ozone Therapy for Parkinson’s Disease

Ozone Therapy is also regarded as a component of the new frontier in Parkinson’s symptom treatment and rehabilitation. Recent investigations have revealed that ozone therapy is helpful for both activating cerebral microcirculation and enhancing energy production by neurons 8.
