Quick Summary


Ozone therapy has been used to treat a variety of diseases including cancer. It releases additional oxygen in the body which causes pathogenic microorganisms to die without affecting healthy cells. Ozone therapies slow the development of tumors and decrease metastasis.

Detailed Information


Many people are familiar with atmospheric ozone and ground-level ozone in smog, but fewer people realize the potential health benefits of medical ozone in cancer treatment and the treatment of other serious diseases including:  


  • AIDs
  • Herpes
  • Hepatitis
  • Epstein Barr
  • Cytomegalovirus


Ozone or O3 is produced from pure medical oxygen via silent electrical discharge and then administered in various forms. While human cells thrive in a high-oxygen environment, pathogens that cause disease are only able to thrive in lower-oxygen environments. By administering ozone, the oxygen levels in the body go up and pathogenic organisms as well as cancer cells are killed. Some cancer researchers believe that a microorganism is responsible for causing normal, healthy cells to turn into cancer cells. Ozone therapy can be used to eradicate carcinogenic microorganisms while also targeting cancer cells themselves because cancer cells dislike an oxygenated environment [3][6][8].


Using ozone therapies, the development of tumors is delayed, and studies have demonstrated a decrease in the metastasis of tumors. A variety of studies have shown that ozone, an oxidant cancer treatment, can be beneficial in treating cancer. Inside the body, ozone turns into oxygen and cancer cells don’t like oxygen. Both ozone and hydrogen peroxide are oxidant treatment strategies that can complement each other, but that should never be used with anti-oxidant cancer treatments [1][2].


Chemistry of Ozone


Ozone is an unstable molecule made up of 3 oxygen atoms. Normally, oxygen atoms prefer to live in pairs. So, when ozone is injected into the blood or body, that third oxygen atom is liberated, leaving one single oxygen atom and one paired molecule made up of 2 oxygen atoms. This single oxygen atom is bactericidal, fungicidal, and viricidal. It helps activate the body’s own anti-oxidants and free-radical scavengers and it enhances blood circulation by oxidizing plaque in the arteries. Ozone also reduces the amount of prostaglandins in the body, which reduces pain and inflammation [7].

Ozone can be injected into prolapsed inter-vertebral discs (slipped discs) to relieve pressure by breaking down the proteo-glycan bridges in the jelly-like material inside the disc. This makes it hard for the jelly-like substance to hold water, which causes the environment inside the disc to dry and the disc size and shape to return to normal. Research has indicated that up to 85% of slipped disc surgeries could be avoided by using ozone therapy instead [7].


Ozone therapy should only be done under the direction and supervision of experts who are experienced at working with this treatment strategy. Because ozone is a delicate substance that needs to be administered at the correct concentration, this is not a cancer therapy should be attempted at home [1]. Ozone therapy is often administered as part of a comprehensive treatment plan that involves several different therapeutic approaches to treat cancer [9].


Ozone therapy was developed in Germany by Werner von Siemens in 1857. In 1870, also in Germany, C. Lender used ozone to therapeutically purify blood. During World War I, ozone was used to treat wounds, trench foot, the effects of poison gas, and gangrene. It was also used to treat war wounds during World War II [7].


In 1915, Dr. Albert Wolff of Berlin used ozone to treat the following:


  • Colon cancer
  • Cervical cancer
  • Bedsores (decubitus ulcers).


Today, ozone therapy is in common use in Germany, Italy, France, Romania, Russia, Poland, Czech Republic, Hungary, Bulgaria, Israel, Cuba, Japan, and Mexico. Though not in widespread use, it is in available in five U.S. states [7].


The development of ozone resistant materials and better data as to the ideal concentration of ozone for use in medicine has made ozone therapy more popular [7].

Safety and Effectiveness

In 1980, the German Medical Society for Ozone Therapy polled 644 therapists about their work with 384,755 patients. The doctors reported only 40 cases of side effects that occurred over the course of administering 5,579,238 treatments [7].


Ozone has been used with excellent results to diminish pain for the following diseases:


  • Rheumatoid arthritis
  • Systemic lupus
  • Erythemoatosis
  • Scleroderma
  • Pyrophosphate arthropathy
  • Polymyositis/fibromyositis
  • Ankylosing spondylitis
  • Chrondrocalcinosis
  • Osteoarthritis
  • Reiter syndrome
  • Psoriasis
  • Synovitus
  • Inter-vertebral disc prolapse
  • Gout [7].
  • Ozone has been particularly noteworthy in terms of its ability to cure AIDs as well as memory, nerve, and mood issues including Alzheimer’s disease and Parkinson’s disease. Ozone injections are also used to treat slipped vertebral discs [3][7].
    How Ozone Is Administered

    Ozone can be administered via infusion bottle, the ozone RHP technique, as rectal ozone, or intravenously. All of these therapies must be administered by a trained medical practitioner. Typically ozone is administered from twice weekly to twice daily depending on how advanced the patient’s cancer is. Ozone treatments are given over the course of several weeks or months [1][5].

    Ozone has a half-life of 55 minutes in a 50 mL disposable ozone-resistant, siliconized injection syringe. Because of its short half-life, it must be prepared on site for its specific use [6].

    Ozone Infusion Bottle / Ozone Autohemotherapy

    This treatment protocol involves removing part of the blood from the body (usually 1 pint), saturating it with oxygen in the form of ozone, and then returning it to the body in an oxygen-rich form [1].

    Intravenous Ozone (Ozone I.V.)

    Intravenous ozone involves the administration of ozone into the body via a fluid that’s been saturated with it. Rather than removing the blood from the body to use as a transport vehicle for the ozone, a fluid that already contains the ozone is administered intravenously [1][5].

    Ozone RHP Technique

    Pure molecular oxygen (O2) and ozone (O3) are put directly into the bloodstream using a device that’s similar to a dialysis machine. The patient’s blood is infused with oxygen and ozone and then re-introduced back into the body in repeated cycles during the same treatment session. Treatment sessions typically last 60 to 120 minutes [1][10].

    The RHP Technique is lauded as an improved form of conventional Ozone Therapy. It works as a full body and blood purification system [10].

    Rectal Ozone Therapy

    In this treatment, ozone is administered into the rectum in gas form to specifically target organs such as the colon and oxygenate the entire bloodstream [5].

    Possible Negative Effects

    The German Medical Association of Ozone Application in Prevention and Therapy says that ozone is contraindicated in the following situations:

    • Uncontrolled hyperthyroidism
    • Glucose-6-phosphate dehydrogenase deficiency (favism, acute haemolytic anaemia)
    • Pregnancy in the first trimester
    • Leukemia [6].
