O3, or ozone, is a form of oxygen that can permeate deep into the tissues at the cellular level. Ozone gas has been in use since the 1800s when Tesla invented the first ozone generator. Though initially used as a disinfectant, the medical community soon began using ozone therapy as an anti-microbial treatment for infections. Though not commonly used in the United States, Medical Ozone is used in many countries throughout Europe and Latin America, reducing antibiotics in these countries.
How does Medical Ozone work?
Medical-grade oxygen is fed into an ozone generator, which converts oxygen to ozone. Once ozone penetrates the tissues and is taken up into the cell, it returns to oxygen again. Within the cell, the oxygen can stimulate the mitochondria to produce energy at the cellular level.
Increasing this production results in healthier tissues, more efficient metabolism, and increased resilience to infection. Ozone also has a direct anti-microbial effect. It can treat bacterial infections, viral infections, Lyme disease, and parasites.
Regular use of ozone therapy slows aging by increasing oxygen utilization to the brain, muscles, skin, and internal organs. Please visit www.aaot.us for the American Academy of Ozone Therapists website for data on Medical Ozone’s health applications. Conditions that show positive results from ozone in research include:
- Coronary Artery and Cardiovascular Disease
- Gangrene/vessel claudication/Diabetic ulcers and neuropathy
- Macular Degeneration
- Cognitive Decline
- Chronic infections
What are treatments with ozone offered at NENH?
Ear & Nasal Insufflation
Ozone is introduced to the nose and ears to access the sinuses, brain, lungs, mouth, thyroid, and other tissues. Ear and nasal insufflation is used to treat sinus infections, respiratory allergies, asthma, cognitive decline, head trauma/concussions, migraines, and common headaches.
$30/25 minutes or bundle 4 treatments for $100.
This is a full-body ozone treatment administered in a Russian steam cabinet to induce a cleansing sweat. As the body heats up in the sauna, ozone is fed into the sauna itself. Ozone sauna is used for detoxification, skin conditions, chronic pain, fibromyalgia, Epstein Barr Virus, Mycotoxin Illness, Lyme Disease, and Cancer. The ozone sauna room contains a flat-screen television and a shower.
$45/30 minutes or bundle 4 treatments for $160.
Limb Bagging/Ozone Cupping
These are ways of delivering ozone to particular areas of the body. Ozone cupping can be used over single wounds to stimulate healing. Limb bagging of the hands can be used for arthritis and local infections of the fingers, while limb bagging of the feet can be used for diabetic ulcers, athlete’s foot, toenail fungus, and neuropathies.
$30/20 minutes or bundle 4 treatment for $100.
Rectal or Vaginal Insufflation
Ozone is delivered to the GI or urinary tract using a small catheter attached to a pre-filled bag of ozone gas. The patient inserts the catheter themselves. They can undergo the treatment in the office or pick up the bag and bring it home for use. These methods are used to treat infections with candida, parasites, bacterial overgrowth, menstrual cramps, endometriosis, Interstitial Cystitis, prostatitis, and auto-immune colon diseases.
- $30.00 bag fill
- $20.00 for ozone bag (can be used 5 times)
- $2.00 catheter needed for each use
Rectal or Vaginal Insufflation individual treatment cost is $52.00 plus tax
Rectal or Vaginal Insufflation Bundle treatment is $100.00 (4 bag fills) +
$20.00 ozone bag (up to 5 uses) = $120.00 +$2.00 for each catheter.
