Autohemotherapy (Ozone IV Treatment) in Scottsdale, Arizona
Autohemotherapy – also known as Ozone IV Treatment or Ozone Therapy – is a procedure in which a pint to a quart of blood is drawn into a closed sterile glass device specifically made for this therapy. Medical-grade ozone is added directly to the blood before being returned to the body in a 30-minute reinfusion process.
Autohemotherapy or Ozone IV Treatment has proven safe and effective in more than a million treatments in Europe over the past several decades. A profoundly beneficial medical therapy, it is used by medical doctors in the treatment of almost all diseases and metabolic disorders.
The frequency of treatments depends on the illness and the severity of symptoms. Ozone is a naturally occurring substance and helps the body repair in a natural manner. Ozone therapy is best described as a crawl and not a sprint. It is best to think of Ozone therapy is a process. Those who have seen the greatest benefit have needed several treatments. Getting on top of the symptoms is always the hardest part.
Ozone therapy affects everybody differently and improvement is usually noted in the first 4 to 6 treatments. This being said, the more treatments you do in the beginning, the faster the symptoms will be controlled. In the beginning, the treatments are best effective when received once a week until the symptoms are controlled for the entire week. After the symptoms are under control, the frequency of treatments reduces according to how your body responds. Once the symptoms are maintained for the entire week, we start to cut back on treatments from weekly to every other week to once a month with the eventual goal to be getting a treatment every 4 to 6 months for maintenance. Ozone is not a permanent cure or a miracle. It is a process. As our cells continually deteriorate with aging and time, you may notice the symptoms return. At this point, your body may require a boost.
Ozonated saline is the most common of all the treatments we do in the office. First, we utilize Normal Saline, which is the same fluid you have received if you have ever had an IV infusion in a hospital or any healthcare setting, and purge the IV bag of any extra air and oxygen. Next, we take the Normal Saline bag and fill it with ozone and infuse it intravenously.
The Ozone is then absorbed into the red and white blood cells and circulated throughout the body to the rest of the cells. This treatment is commonly coupled with some form of IV nutrient therapy. Your practitioner will determine the additional therapy needed.
