What is Ozone Therapy?

Ozone therapy is the process of administering ozone gas into the body to treat a wound or disease. It stimulates the immune system to disinfect and treat disease.

The ozone therapy gas used to treat diseases is made from a medical-grade oxygen source. We offer the finest Ozone therapy Los Angeles has available. It has been shown to break down the integrity of the bacterial cell envelope by oxidizing the phospholipid membrane. In fungi, such as candida and yeast infections, ozone treatment stops fungal growth at certain stages.

With viruses such as the common cold and flu, which affects millions in the US alone annually, the O3 impairs the viral capsid and prevents the reproductive cycle of the virus by creating lipid peroxidation. This is a process where free radicals steal electrons from the cell membrane leading to cell vulnerability. The weak enzyme coatings on cells that make them vulnerable to invasion by viruses make them susceptible to oxidation and elimination from the body, which then replaces them with healthy cells.

How does Ozone Therapy work?

Ozone therapy helps by disrupting the unhealthy processes in an individual’s body. Ozone increases the production of interferon, a group of signaling proteins made and released by host cells in response to the presence of viruses, bacteria, parasites, and tumor cells. Ozone also increases the output of tumor necrosis factor (family of cytokines that can cause cell death) and interleukin-2. The production of interleukin-2 (a protein that regulates the activities of white blood cells that are responsible for immunity), creates a domino effect for an immunologic reaction leading to healing.

Additionally, moderate oxidative stress activates nuclear factor-erythroid 2-related factor 2 (Nrf2). Nrf2 then stimulates the creation of antioxidants, which produce Superoxide Dismutase (SOD), Glutathione S-Transferase (GST), and Heat Shock Proteins (HSP). These free antioxidants protect cells from oxidation and inflammation and can obstruct chronic oxidative stress. Activation of Nrf2 results in a protection against neurodegenerative diseases, such as Alzheimer’s and Parkinson’s diseases.

Nrf2 has also been shown to be involved in DNA repair. One study found that Nrf2 is significantly linked with DNA repair. The Nrf2-dependent antioxidant response has been shown to protect against oxidative-stress related diseases, such as cancer, neurodegenerative disorders (multiple sclerosis, Parkinson’s, Alzheimer’s), cardiovascular disease, emphysema, and the aging process.

What are some Ozone Therapy benefits?


    • Antimicrobial Effects: Ozone therapy limits the effects of various pathogens including bacteria, viruses, fungi, yeast, and protozoa, thereby helping to combat infections.
    • Enhanced Immune Response: By stimulating the immune system, ozone therapy accelerates the healing process, aiding the body in effectively fighting off illnesses and injuries.
    • Improved Circulation: Ozone therapy cleanses and purifies the arteries and veins, leading to improved circulation throughout the body. This enhanced blood flow can positively impact various bodily functions and organ health.
    • Blood Purification: Ozone therapy purifies the blood and lymphatic system, removing toxins and impurities, which can contribute to overall health and vitality.
    • Anti-Inflammatory Properties: Ozone therapy exhibits anti-inflammatory properties, helping to alleviate inflammation in the body and reducing associated discomfort.
    • Hormone and Enzyme Regulation: Ozone therapy normalizes the production of hormones and enzymes, contributing to hormonal balance and optimal metabolic function.
    • Pain Reduction and Wound Healing: Ozone therapy aids in reducing pain, prevents shock, and assists in stopping bleeding, promoting faster wound healing and recovery from injuries.
    • Diabetes and Stroke Prevention: Ozone therapy helps reduce the risk and complications associated with diabetes and stroke by improving circulation, reducing inflammation, and supporting overall cardiovascular health.
    • Brain Function Enhancement: Ozone therapy promotes brain function and cognitive abilities, potentially improving memory, concentration, and overall mental clarity.
    • Cardiac Health Support: Ozone therapy helps reduce abnormal heart rhythm or cardiac arrhythmia, supporting cardiovascular health and reducing the risk of heart-related complications.

  • How is Ozone Therapy performed?

    Ozone therapy is effective in treating infections caused by bacteria, virus, fungi, yeast, and protozoa. It helps flush out the infected cells. Once the body is rid of the infected cells, new healthy cells are produced by the body. There are different ways of treating using ozone therapy, depending on the condition it is used to treat. At Regenerative Medicine LA, Dr. Mark Ghalili will suggest the best option based on the condition or the disease to be treated. Medically, ozone therapy treatment can be given in three ways.

    Directly to the tissue: Ozone therapy is administered directly to the tissue of the affected part of the body if the treatment is for an extremity problem or wound. A protective covering is used to administer the ozone gas.

    Intravenously: While treating internal disorders such as HIV, ozone gas is dissolved with the blood drawn from the patient. With the help of an IV, the blood dissolved with ozone gas is injected into the patient’s blood vessels.

    Intramuscularly: The intramuscular injection uses ozone gas mixed with the blood drawn from the patient or with sterile water, and injected into the patient.

    EBOO is also a form of ozone dialysis but is not necessarily dialysis. Dialysis technically refers to filtering of one’s blood by removing impurities and minerals. EBOO is different, because the purpose of the filter is to collect ozonated gas in order to fully immerse your blood in ozone prior to re-administration. The same blood that is extracted from your body is returned with the addition of ozone. EBOO is different from a one pass ozone as you can receive more than 30x the ozone with this specialized treatment.

    Ozone Therapy for Cancer

    Ozone therapy, though not a standalone treatment for cancer, can be a valuable complementary approach in cancer care. Research suggests that ozone therapy may help in multiple ways during cancer treatment. Firstly, ozone therapy has been shown to enhance the oxygenation of tissues, creating an environment in which cancer cells struggle to survive. Oxygen plays a crucial role in cellular metabolism, and cancer cells, which often thrive in low-oxygen environments, may be more susceptible to oxidative stress induced by ozone therapy. Additionally, ozone therapy has been found to stimulate the immune system, potentially aiding in the body’s natural defense against cancer cells.

    Moreover, ozone therapy may complement conventional cancer treatments such as chemotherapy and radiation therapy by reducing side effects and enhancing their efficacy. Some studies suggest that ozone therapy can help alleviate chemotherapy-induced side effects like nausea, fatigue, and immune suppression. Furthermore, by improving blood circulation and oxygen delivery to tissues, ozone therapy may enhance the effectiveness of radiation therapy. It’s important to note that while ozone therapy for cancer shows promise as a supportive therapy, it should always be used under the guidance of qualified healthcare professionals as part of a comprehensive treatment plan.

    Ozone gas can be used in several forms and different ways besides just the medical treatments outlined above.

    They include:

              • Ozonated water to drink
              • Ozonated olive oil to be applied directly on the body
              • Ozone gas bath or sauna
              • A risky therapy that includes ozone blown into the rectum
              • Injections that are mostly used in dentistry

    Ozone is inexpensive and not patentable and it is regretful that local Health Authorities, continuously concerned by the increased medical costs, do not want to take advantage of this inexpensive procedure. It is commonly used in Europe, Russia, and China where most of the patients are treated with ozone therapy. Ozone is a fairly simple and safe procedure that involves the extraction of your own blood cycling through an ozone generator and passed back into your body for maximal health benefits. An ozone sauna also provides ozone absorption through skin pores for maximal effectiveness and is non-invasive.

    You can consult Dr. Mark Ghalili at Regenerative Medicine LA if you are looking to treat any problem with the help of ozone therapy treatment in Los Angeles. His years of experience will give you the best possible treatment.
