Ozone Therapy for Acute and Chronic Infections


Ozone therapy is a powerful and effective way to fight infections. Ozone therapy works by oxidizing the pathogens in your body, killing them and preventing them from spreading.

This is why ozone therapy is used for acute and chronic infections, as well as for detoxification. 

Ozone therapy is an effective alternative treatment for acute and chronic infections.

Many people turn to ozone therapy as a last resort when they don’t respond to conventional treatments.

Ozone therapy is also adjunct to other treatments, such as antibiotics and surgery. 

Ozone therapy is often used for infections in the lungs, sinuses, ears, throat, urinary tract, digestive system and skin.

Ozone also has an anti-inflammatory effect on the body. Ozone kills germs by oxidizing them. This makes ozone useful for treating chronic bronchitis and asthma conditions, where inflammation plays an essential role in the disease process.

Ozone therapy is especially good at fighting infections like pneumonia, bronchitis, tuberculosis, and sinusitis. It’s also great for helping with skin conditions like acne and psoriasis.

Ozone therapy is an excellent option for treating acute and chronic infections. It can be used in addition to antibiotics, antivirals, and other medications, which is especially helpful when you’ve got a super-strong condition that doesn’t seem to respond to anything else.

Ozone therapy works by exposing the body to ozone gas—essentially oxygen with two extra atoms added on. The body’s immune system acts as if this new oxygen is a virus or bacteria and attacks it, stimulating the production of white blood cells and antibodies that fight off your infection. (It’s called an “oxidative burst.”)

Ozone therapy can be done in many ways: intravenous injections; inhaled through a nebulizer, taken orally in liquid form; or applied topically as a cream or gel.

As the world faces a crisis in antibiotic resistance, ozone is proving to be incredibly valuable. 

Antibiotic resistance impacts every treating physician on the planet. 

Thousands of patients die yearly in the USA alone from infections that have failed to respond to anti-infectives. 

And although ozone therapy has been used in medicine since World War 1, the lack of private source funding for its research means it is yet to be accepted by the mainstream. 

Tick bite cellulitis often falls into the realm of Lyme disease. So, to discuss ozone further, let us take a look at a case study which used ozone therapy as a primary and sole treatment for an acute bacterial infection:

  • The report analyses tick bite cellulitus.
  • The acute infection immediately responded to ozone and was resolved within 24-48 hours.

Furthermore, we can study another case report which used ozone in conjunction with oral antibiotics as a successful primary and sole treatment for a chronic septic prosthetic joint:

  • A 68-year-old woman received intravenous ozone therapy, local joint ozone gas and nutritional supplements.
  • Her wound quickly improved.
  • In one month, she reported a total resolution of symptoms.
  • A subsequent MRI showed complete clearance of infection.

Another group evaluated the antibacterial effect of topical ozone on the treatment of MRSA skin infection:

  • Ozone therapy is one of the strongest antiseptics against most microorganisms involved in skin infections.
  • The killing rates of ozonated oil for S.aureus and MRSA were greater when compared with the control group.
  • Almost 100% of S.aureus were eliminated by ozonated oil following five minutes.
  • Almost 100% MRSA were eliminated by ozonated oil following five minutes.
  • 100% S.aureus and 100% MRSA were eliminated with ozonated water in one minute.
  • Both cases of skin MRSA infection were utterly healed with ozone therapy.
  • The group concluded that ozone therapy is a potential treatment for S.aureus and MRSA skin infection as it has excellent efficacy, few side effects and low costs.

Surgical complications and infections, how ozone can help:

  • Infection is a serious surgical complication that significantly increases morbidity and mortality rates and health care expenses.
  • Increasing bacterial resistance to antibiotics makes treating such events even more troublesome.
  • In a case of a 65-year-old female who was submitted to a complex surgical procedure, she presented with early postsurgical infection.
  • The patient was treated with revision surgery and antibiotics that improved the condition but could not delete the infection.
  • In its gaseous form, Ozone was injected subcutaneously and paravertebrally twice weekly for three weeks.
  • After three weeks of treatment, the wound healed completely.
