Virtue of Health - Ozone Therapy - SRQ

I have had so many of you reach out to me about my Ozone Therapy that I am having done at Virtue of Health. I wanted to put together a blog post for you to be able to understand the process and the positive health outcomes.

What is Ozone Therapy?

Ozone Therapy is a unique and integrative treatment that is used to increase the amount of oxygen in the body through the introduction of ozone into the body. This is achieved through the process known as auto-hemotherapy, in which blood is drawn from a patient, exposed to ozone and re-injected intravenously (directly into the vein). The effects are shown to be both healing and detoxifying with its main purpose of suppressing infection and boosting the immune system.

The history of Ozone Therapy dates back to the early 1950’s in Germany and has since gained recognition in the United States as more physicians are understanding its health benefits. Studies have shown that as part of an overall integrative treatment plan, it produces positive outcomes for treating a variety of conditions and illnesses such as chronic fatigue syndrome, Lyme disease, fibromyalgia, cardiovascular disease, diabetes, chronic hepatitis, herpes, chemical sensitivities, macular degeneration, chronic bladder conditions, colitis, and Crohn’s disease.

What Is Ozone?

The form of oxygen most people are familiar with is the kind in the air we breathe. It is the single most important nutrient for the health and wellness of our body. It exists as a pair of oxygen atoms and is the most stable form of oxygen, as well as colorless. Ozone, on the other hand, is a form of oxygen that is composed of three oxygen atoms. It is the addition of the third oxygen atom that gives ozone its remarkable medical properties by making it a “supercharged” oxygen atom.

Ozone is found naturally in the body. In fact, our white blood cells make ozone as part of their immune response when we don’t feel well. By using Ozone Therapy you are essentially boosting your natural immune system, as well as, supporting your system in several other ways. It works very well for many chronic conditions associated with immune dysfunction, infections or inflammation.

What are the Benefits of Ozone Therapy?

Ozone Therapy provides many powerful and healing health benefits with little or no side effects. Studies show these benefits:

Suppresses infections by killing viruses, bacteria and yeast, especially those hard-to-treat, resistant pathogens that can be found in chronic conditions, such as Lyme disease;

Improves circulation by enhancing the flow of your blood;

Works as an immune modulator, meaning that is helps to keep your immune system in top working order;

Increases the uptake of oxygen by stimulating the enzyme DPG (diphosphoglycerate), which helps the cells get all the oxygen they need to function properly. This aids in killing resistant, anaerobic infections and provides the cells in the area with the extra oxygen needed to heal.

Stimulates your mitochondria, the powerhouse of your cells, increasing the cells’ energy so that your body stays healthy; and

Enhances your body’s ability to increase its antioxidant capabilities and protection.

Ozone Is an Immune System Modulator

When we are well, our immune system is in balance. However, if someone has an auto-immune disorder, it essentially means that their immune system is working overtime to try to help the body fight off infection, bacteria or virus. Ozone supercharges the part of the immune system that often becomes dysfunctional and suppressed by chronic infections but calms down the part of the immunity that causes autoimmune disease.

On the other hand, when the immune system is under-active, with conditions such as cancer, AIDS and chronic infections, Ozone Therapy can stimulate the immune system to support the body in its healing process.

The reason ozone can modulate the immune system so well – either calm it down or stimulate it -is because of its unique action on the membranes of the white blood cells. Ozone stimulates the white blood cells to produce immune-related messenger molecules called cytokines.

Ozone Helps Your Blood Flow Better

Enhanced circulation is key to good health. Ozone improves circulation by enhancing the ability of the blood to flow. It does this by enabling more of the oxygen carrying hemoglobin to reach your capillaries where the cells can receive more oxygen. Medical research has found that many chronic inflammatory conditions coincide with impaired blood and oxygen circulation. Ozone Therapy is a powerful treatment for improving or preventing such conditions.

Ozone Increases Your Antioxidant Quotient

Many people with chronic diseases have a deficiency in antioxidant defense capabilities. Ozone Therapy increases antioxidant protection and capabilities far more than your everyday Vitamin C. It accomplishes this by increasing the levels of antioxidant enzyme systems in your body helping the body to achieve an overall lowering and balancing of the oxidation levels, and thereby helping to bring the body back to a state of health.


Ozone cleanses the body by oxidizing (neutralizing) toxins and facilitating the detoxification process in the liver and kidneys. Ozone can be very beneficial for liver support and help normalize abnormal liver function tests.

Who can benefit from Ozone therapy?

Individuals with the following conditions & symptoms:

  • Individuals with infections of all types- (bacterial, viral, fungal, protozoa)

  • Shingles

  • Cancer

  • Joint Disorders

I have done 4 treatments so far at Virtue of Health and I will not lie it makes me very tired for the rest of the day but the next day I feel great!My body has so many toxins it is working through so this is expected. Also everybody's body responds differently to the treatment.

I plan to do a few Ozone Therapy treatments a month to help with my energy levels and to help with the detoxification of my body.
