IV Ozone Therapy: Does it work, and what to expect?

IV ozone therapy is the process by which we administer ozone gas directly into the bloodstream, stimulating the body's immune responses and helping treat diseases, wounds, and many other wellness-related ailments. It's different from the oxygen we breathe, which is O2. Ozone is a gas made up of O3 molecules. It's one of our newest IV therapy offerings, and in this post, we discuss whether it works, how it works, and if it might be right for you.

Does ozone therapy work?

Like all other IV treatments, ozone IV therapy is administered intravenously. The difference with ozone is the blood is infused outside the body before being re-injected. The gas dissolves into the blood, enriching it with oxygen. We offer this treatment outpatient, and patients can resume normal daily activities immediately after treatment is complete.

What kind of recovery is needed?

The effects of ozone can be felt immediately by some, and there is usually no downtime or recovery required.

A lack of proper O2 levels can cause symptoms like the following:
