How To Do Rectal Ozone Insufflations?
Rectal ozone insufflations consist of introducing ozone/oxygen gas mix into the rectum via a catheter at an ozone concentration of around 40 to 60 mcg/ml.
Typically, 100 to 400 ml are used, although the recommended amounts vary greatly from practitioner to practitioner.
Dr. Lahodny, for example, uses concentrations of 80 mcg/ml at volumes of up to 2,000 ml.
Rectal insufflations with ozone are used to treat digestive issues, inflammatory conditions like colitis, prostate problems, constipation, parasitic and other infections in the large intestine.
Rectal ozone treatments are widely believed to have strong systemic effects, although the evidence for this is scarce in my opinion.
They can be performed directly from the generator, or by using a syringe or a bag. Here I will demonstrate how to perform rectal ozone insufflations with a bag.
It’s recommended to perform rectal insufflations on an empty bowel, so after a bowel movement, or a water enema. It’s also possible to do two rectal insufflations back-to-back, where the first insufflation is used to evacuate the bowel and the second to keep the ozone inside.
- oxygen tank and regulator
- ozone generator
- wrench key (if you’re using a medical tank)
- insufflation bag
- silicone tubing
- a lubricant (e.g. ozonated oil)

Learn how to protect yourself from breathing ozone
1. Screw a low flow regulator onto the oxygen tank.
2. Take a piece of silicone tubing, and connect one end to the oxygen tank.
3. Connect the other end of the silicone tubing with the oxygen in port of the ozone generator.
4. Make sure the ozone generator is plugged into the power supply.
5. Open the valve of the oxygen tank with a key wrench. Half a turn is enough. Watch the gauge jump up. It shows you how much oxygen you have left in the tank.

6. Attach the insufflation bag to the ozone out port of the ozone generator.
7. Choose the desired ozone concentration on the ozone output chart of your ozone generator. I pick an ozone concentration of 43 mcg/ml. Which means I will need to set my oxygen flow to 1/8 LPM.
8. Open the regulator to 1/8 LPM.
9. Turn the ozone generator on.
10. Watch as the bag is being filled with the gas.
11. When the bag is full, turn the oxygen regulator to zero.
12. Turn off the ozone generator.
13. Close the clamp on the line of the bag to prevent the gas from escaping.
14. Unhook the bag from the ozone generator. Set it aside while you prepare the rest.
15. Put on gloves.

16. Apply some lubricant onto your rectum.
17. Insert the catheter 2 to 3 inches deep. You can do it standing up or lying down on your right side or any other position you find comfortable.
18. Connect the inserted catheter with the filled bag.
19. Open the clamp on the bag.
20. Start emptying the bag into your colon by squeezing and rolling it.
21. When you’re done, pull the catheter out and dispose of it.
22. Don’t forget to release the pressure from your regulator when you’re done. For this, first close the valve on your tank using the wrench key. Do not exert too much force.
23. Open the regulator all the way up to the highest flow. See the gauge going down to zero quickly.
24. Set the regulator to zero. You’re done!
This is the equipment I used in the pictures above:
- medical oxygen tank (You can also get a filled tank here). Most people use an industrial oxygen tank for insufflations, which is fine.
- low flow regulator, CGA870
- ozone generator: SimplyO3 Stratus 2.0
- wrench for the oxygen tank
- insufflation bag
- silicone tubing (if you buy the above generator, you’ll already get the tubing)
- ozonated coconut oil (but you can use any ozonated or not ozonated oil)

Rectal insufflations with ozone are used to treat:
- IBS, irritable bowel syndrome
- colorectal cancer
- any prostate problems, like hyperplasia, prostatitis, prostate cancer
- Crohn’s disease
There are also reports which ascribe rectal insufflations therapeutical benefits beyond the local administration, see below.
- ruptured colon in people with a weak colon
- bloating, cramps, indigestion
- feeling of “trapped gas”
- weak colon, with risk of rupture
- transplanted organs, since ozone treatments can stimulate the immune system and trigger a rejection of the foreign organ
Brian Aston has been diagnosed with Multiple Sclerosis.
He has been performing rectal insufflations for years, which he says keep his symptoms to an absolute minimum.
I interviewed him a few years ago, watch it here.
Here is a recent update:
RI helped this person with IBS, irritable bowel syndrome:
This gentleman reported improvements with an enlarged prostate, or benign prostatic hyperplasia (BPH):
Another member of the ozone community says rectal ozone insufflations helped him deal with Chronic Fatigue Syndrome:
Temporary improvement in energy and reduction of inflammation:

Personally, I have experienced cramps, pains, bloating, and acne after rectal ozone insufflations. And the very uncomfortable sensation of having gas stuck in the abdomen which could linger for days.
I have found them to be extremely effective for constipation. Rectal insufflations seem to trigger an instant evacuation after most applications.
Although I prefer to use Oxy-powder instead.
I believe rectal insufflations with ozone can be helpful with various types of prostate problems, colorectal cancer, Crohn’s disease, or colitis.
As to the assertion that they are a powerful systemic treatment, I remain skeptical, as I pointed out here.
I do believe that they can induce mild systemic improvements in people who suffer from inflammation due to an improper diet high in carbs, sugar, oxalates, gluten, or other plant matter.
