WHAT IS OZONE THERAPY?
Ozone therapy is the use of ozone/oxygen mix for curative purposes to either heal a condition or reduce its symptoms. One of the earliest mentions of ozone therapy dates back to 1885 when The Florida Medical Association published Dr. Charles J. Kenworthy’s “Ozone”.
During ozone therapy, ozone is administered at different concentrations depending on which condition is treated and depending on the type of application. Ozone is very volatile, it can’t be easily stored. It needs to be generated on site when used for ozone therapy (see also “How is ozone generated?“).
There are different ways to administer ozone:
Major Autohemotherapy (MAH): blood is extracted and mixed with ozone/oxygen outside of the body. An anti-coagulant like sodium citrate or heparin is added. The ozonated and heparinized mix is then reinfused into the patient.

Hyperbaric Major Autohemotherapy: 150 to 220 ml of blood are extracted and mixed with ozone/oxygen at a concentration of around 40 ug/ml outside of the body. An anti-coagulant like sodium citrate or heparin is added. The ozonated and heparinized blood mix is then re-infused into the patient under pressure of up to 0.9 bar. The high pressure protects red blood cells and allows for a better oxygen saturation.
1.5 ‘passes’ of the Hyperbaric Major Autohemotherapy are performed using the Zotzmann Ozon 2000. This is the same machine which Dr. Lahodny uses for the Ozone High Dose treatments.
Ozone High Dose Therapy (OHT), also known as “10 Pass” method. It has been developed by Dr. Lahodny in Austria. It consists of extracting 200 ml of blood, mixing it with 200 ml of ozone/oxygen mix at a concentration of 70 mcg/ml and re-infusing it into the patient under high pressure. This is then repeated 10 times, hence the name 10 Pass. One 10 Pass application takes around 1 to 2 hours to complete, up to 20,000 units of heparin are used, 2 liters (2,000 ml) of blood are drawn and mixed with a same amount of ozone. A total of 140,000 ug of ozone is administered during a successful 10 Pass treatment.
The video shows one pass of the hyperbaric ozone treatments. During the Ozone High Dose 10 such passes are performed at a greater pressure and using higher ozone concentrations.
Ozonated saline IV: 0.9% saline solution is ozonated and infused into the patient intravenously. This is also called “the Russian Method” since it was first developed in Nizhnyi Novgorod, Russia. Low ozone concentrations of often less than 1 ug/ml are used. around 150 to 200 ml are continuously ozonated and infused into the patient.
A video I shot while receiving ozonated saline IV at a hospital in Nizhny Novgorod, Russia, where the method was invented.
Direct Ozone IV (DIV): the ozone/oxygen gas is introduced directly into the vein. Usually, 60 ml of ozone at maximum concentration of 55 ug/ml are injected. This needs to be done very slowly at around 1 ml per 30 to 60 seconds. Injections of up to 400 ml in one session have been reported without incidences. This procedure has been administered successfully on Ebola patients in Sierra Leone.
A patient of Dr. Jose Luis Gallardo receives a DIV at his practice in Queretaro, Mexico.
RHP / EBOO: RHP stands for Recirculatory Hemoperfusion, EBOO stands for Extracorporeal Blood Oxygenation and Ozonation. Both describe the same process: blood is extracted from one side of a person’s arm, run through a type of dialysis machine where ozone is added, run through a filter, and then reinfused into the other arm. There are several clinics in Asia which offer this protocol, as do some clinics in the Ukraine.
EBOO (Extracorporeal Blood Ozonation and Oxygenation) performed on a patient at a clinic in the Ukraine. This type of RHP/EBOO also adds saline and uses a slightly lower ozone concentrations than what is used in Asia. The machine in the video is a unique invention of Prof. Eugeniy Nazarov.

INTRAARTICULAR INJECTIONS (PROLOZONE)
Injection of ozone gas into the joint. In the US this procedure has been made popular by Dr. Frank Shallenberger.
Dr. Bino Rucker injects ozone into the elbow and shoulder joints.
Injections of ozone into the muscle, either as pure gas or in the form of Minor Autohemotherapy: 2 to 5 ml of blood are drawn, mixed with ozone/oxygen mix and then reinjected into the muscle.
Minor Autohemotherapy: a mixture of the patient’s blood and ozone is injected into the muscle.
Used to relieve pain or for cosmetic purposes
Into wrinkles to stimulate collagen production
An incision is made and ozone is introduced into the peritoneum (a membrane which lines the abdominal cavity). This procedure can only be performed at a clinic.
- ozonated water: water has the ability to bind ozone for a limited time. Ozonated water can be ingested to treat gastrointestinal conditions or to rinse nasal cavities or wounds. It can also be used in surgery to speed up healing and prevent infections.
- ozone cupping with a funnel. It can be also be performed using a vacuum cup which is ‘sucked’ onto the skin.
- limb bagging: this is performed to treat wounds or gangrene.
- ozonated water enema
Ozone is added to a sauna which allows for the person’s head to remain outside.
I demonstrate how to set up an ozone sauna at home.
A special type of sauna is the HOCATT ozone sauna: it adds carbonic acid which is supposed to enhance the body’s ability to absorb oxygen, hence making the ozone sauna more effective.
