What is Intravenous Ozone?

Intravenous ozone therapy involves administering ozone gas into the bloodstream to support the immune system and help treat diseases or wounds. The oxygen that we breathe contains two atoms (O2), while ozone gas contains three bonded oxygen atoms (O3). When ozone gas is added into the bloodstream, it increases blood oxygen levels, reducing stress on the lungs and leading to numerous health benefits. It was discovered in 1785 and synthesized in 1840. As far back as 1881, it was used as a disinfectant.

Several researchers have proven the exceptional ability of ozone therapy in reducing oxidative stress, repairing damaged cells, and helping with overall healing and recovery. A study posted in the Journal of Natural Science, Biology, and Medicine states that ozone therapy has been researched and used for its medical effects for over a century. The article concludes that “Its effects are proven, consistent, safe and with minimal and preventable side effects.”  

Many people are turning to ozone therapy because of its efficacy, safety, and affordability. We use ozone therapy at Care Nashville to support a variety of conventional treatments and for its demonstrated benefits in:

  • Improving blood circulation 
  • Improving the immune system
  • Improving cardiovascular and cerebrovascular activities
  • Prevention and treatment of infections
  • Detoxification
  • Wound healing

When you receive intravenous ozone treatment at Care Nashville, the first step will be extracting a blood sample. Ozone gas will then be completely dissolved into the blood. Finally, the blood sample will be injected back into the body through an IV. As the blood sample is re-introduced, it improves the oxygen supply in your body and results in reactions that form more red blood cells. It is like “exercise in a bottle”.

Our provider at Care Nashville is certified in ozone therapy by the American Academy of Ozonotherapy through courses taught by Dr. Frank Shallenberger.

As the treatment requires a blood draw, we recommend preparing for intravenous ozone by drinking plenty of fluids and eating a healthy breakfast. A good night’s sleep is also recommended the night before treatment.

According to a study published in the journal of Medical Gas Research, ozone therapies “have shown substantial benefits that span a large variety of acute and chronic ailments.” Ozone therapy can help disrupt infections and unhealthy processes within your body, including bacteria, viruses, fungi, and yeast.

IV Ozone therapy can also help improve the quality of life for patients affected by chronic illness. Oxidative stress plays an important role in a range of diseases like diabetes, asthma, atherosclerosis, Alzheimer’s, and Parkinson’s. Intravenous ozone can help manage oxidative stress and support the functioning of the immune system, aiding the body in its ability to fight infection.

Patients who are struggling with a variety of chronic conditions, including breathing, coronary artery disease, aging, chronic infections, herpes, chronic fatigue, allergies, autoimmune disorders, and ulcerative colitis can benefit from intravenous ozone therapy. Your ozone therapy treatment plan will be individualized based on your condition and personal factors, allowing the therapy to be suitable for a wide range of individuals.  Those not eligible include those with a history of G6PD deficiency, hyperthyroidism, a platelet count below 50,000, a recent stroke or heart attack, hemochromatosis, and patients receiving treatment with iron or copper.
