Did you know that ozone therapy is becoming more and more popular each year? In 2022, it is expected to become even more mainstream as people learn about its incredible healing properties. Here are 5 fast facts about ozone therapy that you need to know.
Fact #1: Ozone therapy has been utilized in medicine since WW1 and before.
During the First World War, medicine was not readily available in a field hospital. Doctors who knew Ozone’s antibacterial capabilities started utilizing it to treat infected wounds. It was discovered that it also had anti-inflammatory effects, and Dr. P Aubourg, a French doctor, published the first paper on ozone therapy in 1936 after experimenting with it himself. Autohemotherapy, the injection of a tiny amount of ozonated blood from the patient, was first used in the 1940s.
Over the past two decades, ozone therapy has made significant advances in scientific knowledge and research, with a growing number of researchers participating. Today, over 50,000 professionals around the world utilize ozone therapy on a regular basis.
Fact #2: Ozone therapy is used in four different medical industries.
The medical industries that commonly use ozone therapy are dentistry, aesthetics, pain management, and anti-aging.
Primary Medical – For chronic diseases, acute infections, and general wellness.
The primary medical use of ozone therapy is to disinfect and cleanse the blood. This is done by drawing a small amount of blood from the patient and exposing it to ozone. The ozone kills any bacteria, viruses, or other pathogens present in the blood. This process is known as ozonation.
Ozone therapy can also be used to treat certain conditions and diseases. These include cancer, HIV/AIDS, arthritis, and chronic pain. Ozone therapy can also be used to boost the immune system.
Joint and Musculoskeletal Injections – For injured or degrading joints and injuries

Fact #5: Ozone therapy can be given in many different ways.
It can be administered in the form of IVs – a pint of your blood is withdrawn and ozone added to it before it is reintroduced into you. This is ideal for broad disorders such as cancer, heart disease, chronic tiredness, autoimmune diseases, and other conditions.
Ozone can also be administered via a rectal route, in which you insert a tiny catheter into your rectum and then press on a bag filled with ozone to administer the ozonized area. This is particularly helpful for individuals with digestive issues, as it has both local and systemic effects. Ozone can also be given perineal, which involves lying comfortably with a catheter put into the genital tract region while ozone is steadily fed for around 20 minutes. This absorbs systemically and is a good alternative for ladies who can’t take the IV method.
