THE HEALING POWER OF OXYGEN
Solutions For Chronic
Fatigue & Inflammation
What is Ozone
Ozone is found naturally in our atmosphere. It’s a gas containing three atoms of oxygen, and most of it lies in the ozone layer. The ozone gas used for treatment is carefully made from medical-grade oxygen sources, and the practice of using ozone to treat medical conditions started in Europe over 150 years ago. Today, ozone therapy has grown in popularity globally, and is used in many naturopathic clinics to relieve pain, improve chronic fatigue and immune function, repair damaged cells, detox the body, and more.
Ozone therapy reduces overall inflammation making conditions such as arthritis more manageable, so you can begin to live your life without pain. Research has shown that ozone therapy can improve your cell’s ability to reactivate, meaning that broken cells will repair themselves faster.
Why Ozone Therapy
Ozone therapy is growing in the healthcare industry as a great treatment for chronic fatigue and inflammation. It’s often utilized by patients who have experienced years of discomfort with little to no help from their primary care team. It’s important for you to feel heard by your doctors and have a treatment plan that is catered to your needs with your voice in mind.
Ozone therapy has several benefits including relieving pain, reducing inflammation, antiviral and antibacterial abilities, stimulates the immune system, and more. It can be administered in several ways, depending on your condition and health needs. By administering ozone gas into your body, it’s exposed to a plethora of healing.

WHAT IT TREATS
Although ozone and its therapeutic benefits have been studied for over a century, new benefits and uses are still being discovered. There is a wide variety of conditions that can be treated with ozone therapy. Ozone has anti-inflammatory properties which makes it great for allergies, chronic fatigue, inflammatory conditions, and autoimmune disorders since most chronic and abnormal conditions are caused by inflammation.
Inflammation can lead to oxidative stress which contributes to pain, discomfort, and fatigue. This oxidative damage from chronic inflammation can be reduced with ozone therapy and helps with other serious conditions such as heart disease, cancer, multiple sclerosis, rheumatoid arthritis, and thyroid disorders. Ozone therapy stimulates cellular repair and regeneration, which improves oxygen supply and improves blood circulation. This can help keep uncomfortable symptoms under control.
Ozone can destroy almost all types of viruses, bacteria, protozoa, and fungi. This is a breakthrough in medicine, since bacteria has started to become more resistant to antibiotics. One study even found that ozone therapy completely resolved a bacterial infection from a tick bite between 24 to 48 hours.
HOW IT’S ADMINISTERED
In Office & At Home
Ozone is a great option for joint pain. It can help achy joints, torn ligaments, back pain, and more. Ozone Joint Therapy consists of two solutions: the medication, followed by the ozone which is injected into the joint. The average treatment plan for an injured joint is 3 to 6 injections over 4 to 6 weeks, with about 15% to 25% improvement with each injection. Each injection promotes regeneration and rebuilding of cartilage and new ligaments resulting in decreased pain and improved function.
Another method is intravenously (IV). This is extremely effective for boosting the immune system, decreasing systemic inflammation, and tackling chronic fatigue because it improves circulation with routine treatments. Ozone therapy is tolerated well by the body with minimal to no side effects, proving to be an effective option. Ozone IV therapy is just as safe as any other IV therapy when it’s properly dosed and administered.
Insufflation inspired the home treatment movement because of the unusual method of administration. Insufflation only takes a few minutes and is primarily administered in the rectal or vaginal cavity, or even the ear or nasal cavities which will provide a systemic effect similar to IV therapy. To administer ozone at home, you will need to acquire the proper equipment, which your MedLink team can provide.
