Ozoneid Therapy

Goals

To identify studies that show the efficacy of ozone therapy in treating different types of infections.

Early Findings

  • The use of ozone in treating various ailments began over 150 years ago. However, the US Drug and Food Administration (FDA) still does not recognize or support ozone therapy as a treatment option.
  • Nonetheless, ozone therapy, which is the introduction of ozone into the human body via various methods, has been the subject of several scientific studies. A 2012 study on the use of ozone therapy in patients with viral hepatitis C found that the therapy was effective in reducing the viral load in 95 percent of patients after 24 weeks of treatment.
  • In a 2009 study, ozone was found to eliminate 99 percent of cariogenic bacterial species after exposing samples to 60 seconds of ozone treatment.
  • In a 2013 review of ozone therapy, the treatment was found to be effective against viral diseases, especially against MERS, SARS, and other coronaviruses. However, the study is still ongoing, and its specific degree of efficacy is yet to be determined.
  • In terms of ozone administration, several health articles have reported that rectal insufflation is 95-96% as effective as major autohemotherapy (IV method). However, the statement originated from a German physician who is regarded as an authority in ozone therapy, and there is no independent scientific study that helps confirm the statement.
