Administering ozone into body cavities like the rectum or vagina or bladder brings good results. Similarly, drinking ozonated water and applying ozonated oils also yield good results.
Ozone gas can also be delivered into a bag and wrapped around a limb or body part. This is great for chronic wounds that need help with healing and regeneration. For example, diabetic wounds and venous stasis ulcers that don’t get enough oxygenation to the area and are hard to heal can benefit from ozone.
However, ozone blood treatments appear to be the strongest method of administering this type of therapy.
- DIV: Injecting ozone directly. This is not recommended unless it’s an emergency as it can increase risks of pulmonary embolism and chest discomfort.
- Major Autohemotherapy (MAH): It involves drawing blood out of a patient into a container along with saline and ozone gas, which is then pumped back into the patient.
- Minor Autohemotherapy: It is similar to Major Autohemotherapy, except a small amount of blood is drawn out of the patient’s veins, then the syringe is infused with ozone gas, and that ozonated blood is then injected intramuscularly in the patient’s buttock.
- Hyperbaric Ozone Treatment, sometimes also known as Multi-Pass or 10-Pass Ozone Therapy: This therapy infuses much higher amounts of ozone in a much larger amount of volume. It uses a specialized machine that vacuums the blood from the patient’s vein into a container, pressurizes the ozone gas into the blood, and returns the blood to the patient at much higher speeds and pressures. This counts as one pass. The 10-pass method does this 10 times, so you can imagine how much more ozone gas is delivered at quicker speeds by this method.
If you suffer from significant pain, injecting ozone directly into the site of your pain can sometimes bring the most effective relief. Ozone can also be injected into the joints, which will be discussed next.
