The holistic practice now offers ozone IV therapy which is believed to increase oxygen metabolism and have other positive effects. The therapy involves the injection of ozone into the patient’s bloodstream through an IV line.

While Ozone has long been used in the medical community topically for wound healing, the practice’s newly announced treatment offers intravenous administration of this substance which has proven anti-inflammatory and hemodynamic properties. As explained in a study published by NIH, when ozone comes into contact with bodily fluids, the body reacts by creating more proteins and red blood cells which increases the body’s tissue oxygen supply.
Proponents of Ozone IV therapy claim it can not only increase oxygen metabolism but also increase antioxidant capacity, stimulate the immune system, and deactivate viruses, bacteria, and pathogens. In a 2018 study, ozone’s oxygen-boosting properties were also shown to help repair musculoskeletal tissues and decrease inflammation in the joints.
At Patients Medical, the process of receiving ozone therapy is similar to that of a vitamin IV drip. Sessions usually occur 1-3 times per week for up to 20 sessions. Patients interested in ozone therapy can schedule a consultation at the clinic where a physician will assess their symptoms, underlying conditions, and medical history with them to determine the appropriate amount of sessions.
