      Ozone IV Therapy

      Ozone therapy is an innovative treatment that holds the potential to transform your health.

      Ozone therapy has been extensively studied and used in medical practice since the 1800s. It has commonly treated a wide range of patient conditions – from gum disease to chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) to wound healing associated with diabetes.

      This therapy involves administering ozone gas into the body to:

      • stimulate the immune system
      • fight against infection
      • improve overall wellness

      At One Agora Integrative Health, our trained specialists offer this powerful therapy so you can improve your health and wellbeing.

      What Is Ozone Therapy?

      Ozone therapy delivers ozone gas into the body to heal and treat disease. It does this through the type of oxygen that gets administered – ozone gas.

      Ozone gas is a type of oxygen with three oxygen atoms (O3). Once administered into the body, the ozone gas comes into contact with body fluids. This results in a reaction that creates more proteins and red blood cells, thus increasing the body’s oxygen supply.

      Ozone therapy may interrupt unhealthy activity within your body and deactivate certain things like viruses, bacteria, fungi, and yeast. It does this largely through:

      • raising the oxygen levels in the blood
      • correcting oxidative stress by powering up the immune system and reducing inflammation
      • aiding in wound healing

      Ozone gas is naturally found in the upper atmosphere, where it helps protect us from harmful ultraviolet rays. However, at the ground level, it can be harmful except when properly used in medical contexts. At One Agora Integrative Health, our ozone therapy specialists take the utmost care to ensure your safety.

      How Is Ozone Therapy Delivered?

      Ozone therapy can be administered in multiple ways. At One Agora Integrative Health, we specialize in intravenous ozone therapy, AKA ozone IV therapy. It’s a straightforward process:

      • We withdraw 300 cc’s of blood and store it in an IV bag.
      • We introduce medical-grade ozone gas to it.
      • We then reintroduce your blood back into your body.

      Once the treated blood is reintroduced in the body, it circulates from head to toe and starts stimulating your immune system.

      For patients who get queasy at the sight of blood, ozone therapy can also be medically administered:

      • through the ears
      • nasally
      • vaginally
      • rectally

      Our specialists are happy to find an option that works best for you.

      What Can Ozone Therapy Treat?

      Ozone therapy may be used for a number of conditions and can help with:

      • improving the range of motion in knee osteoarthritis
      • decreasing back pain caused by herniated discs
      • treating macular degeneration
      • lowering the risks of diabetes complications
      • reducing stress on the lungs
      • treating ischemic heart disease
      • lowering the viral load of HIV patients

      Ozone therapy shows a lot of promise, and researchers are continuing to explore its impact on the body and its therapeutic possibilities.

      Can Ozone Therapy Be Combined with Other Therapies?

      One of the many benefits of ozone therapy is its ability to be combined with other therapies. Here at One Agora Integrative Health, we pair our ozone therapy with two other treatment options: Ultraviolet Blood Irradiation and Extracorporeal Blood Oxygenation and Ozonation.

      Ultraviolet Blood Irradiation (UVBI)

      UVBI is a cutting-edge therapy that combines powerfully with ozone therapy. Ultraviolet light is well-known for its ability to kill off germs, purify, and disinfect. This combination therapy may bring much-needed relief to patients suffering from viruses or chronic infections.

      UVBI is the process of exposing blood in an IV bag to a chamber of ultraviolet light before reintroducing it into the body. While UVBI is commonly used as a healing modality alongside ozone therapy, it can also be used alone to treat autoimmune disease.

      UVBI causes bacteria and virus-infected cells to break and activates immune cells in the blood. The immune cells attack the bacteria and viruses now in the blood. This triggers a systemic immune activation that dramatically helps to remove infections.

      What makes UVBI effective is the level of its dosing. Currently, there are two main dosing groupings – low dose UVBI and high dose UVBI:

      • Low dose UVBI delivers milder doses of ozone and UV light into the body. Lower doses of UV target microorganisms in the body, killing them, and damaging their DNA. This damage is then rapidly repaired through DNA repair enzymes (chemicals that speed up specific reactions in your body).
      • High dose UVBI allows us to deliver a higher concentration of ozone and UVBI – in some cases up to 10 times the regular dosing. While most patients typically start with a smaller dose on their first treatment, in following treatments, higher doses may help speed up their healing process.

      Extracorporeal Blood Oxygenation and Ozonation (EB02)

      It’s a long, complicated name, but at its simplest, EB02 is an advanced way of performing ozone therapy but at higher volumes and with a filtration component. It’s considered by some to be the world’s most advanced ozone therapy.

      Sometimes, the body cannot eliminate certain toxins in the blood through normal or conventional means. EB02 removes these from the blood and prevents them from recirculating throughout the body and its major organs.

      EB02 offers many powerful benefits, including:

      • The removal of mold, heavy metals, and other toxins
      • Removing fat or excess cholesterol from the bloodstream
      • Strengthening the immune system
      • Calming down inflammation
      • Restoring overall homeostasis

      Plus, so much more!

      What’s an Ozone Therapy Session at One Agora Integrative Health Like?

      First, one of our ozone therapy specialists will meet with you to answer your questions and create a tailored ozone therapy treatment plan. We’ll also discuss if you’re a candidate for UVBI or EB02. Regardless, your therapy will likely involve a series of treatments so you can enjoy the maximum benefits that ozone therapy has to offer.

      Another part of that conversation is deciding on the delivery method that’s best for you. At One Agora Integrative Health, you’re our first priority. So, we will be there right by your side, making sure that the treatment is delivered slowly and with care.

      How long will your treatments last? That all depends on the area being treated. Typically, ozone IV therapy lasts between 30-60 minutes, while other methods may only take 10-15 minutes.

      Shortly after your appointment, you may start to notice some changes. Depending on your health, that could involve some detox reactions. Side effects may include the Herxheimer reaction, which will show up as flu-like symptoms. These are usually short-term and will resolve on their own.
