Ozone Clinic Providing Rectal Ozone Therapy in Scottsdale, Arizona

Description text

As the name suggests, Rectal Insufflation refers to introducing ozone into the body through the rectum. Oxygen (O2) has been infused rectally during surgery for years, due to the fact that oxygen is easily absorbed through the walls of the colon. The same is true for ozone. This method can be used for multiple disease processes from colon related conditions to chronic autoimmune conditions.

Rectal Insufflation is useful in the colon as well as being absorbed into the bloodstream and is up to 90% as effective as Ozonated saline. This is an ideal method for the patient that has a needle aversion, to help augment the IV treatments and for those where IV is too costly. During rectal insufflations, a mix of ozone/oxygen is introduced through a catheter into the colon. It is an oxygen gas enema. The ozone helps remove inflammation and kills pathogens like bacteria, viruses, parasites, and yeast. It can help
restore healthy gut flora.

Rectal insufflation is a way to administer ozone systemically in a manner that is completely painless and minimally invasive. Previously for many decades, physicians in Europe have used a more invasive technique called Major Autohemotherapy whereby half a pint of the patient’s own blood is removed and mixed with ozone and re-injected intravenously back to the patient.

Rectal Insufflation is “95% as effective as Major Autohemotherapy” (Renate Viebahn). This method is used by many physicians in their clinics and by those at home as well.

Advantages of Rectal Ozone Therapy

  • Simple, painless, less than the 15-minute procedure
  • Obtain higher levels in the gut and liver. Therefore has especially higher benefits for patients with gut and liver issues such as:
    • Chronic hepatitis
    • Chronic colitis
  • Has similar systemic effects on the immune system as more invasive ozone therapy: Major autohemotherapy

How is the procedure performed?

The medical assistant will insert a very small lubricated catheter into the rectum about 4 inches and gently administer 3 to 6 ounces of ozone over a 5-10 minute period while the patient is laying on his/her side. Most patients feel no discomfort.

The patient is asked to refrain from passing gas or having a bowel movement for at least 30 minutes. It has been shown that the entire amount of ozone is fully absorbed by that time. So any gas or bowel movement that is passed after that period does not have any effect on the results of the therapy.

It is generally recommended that the procedure is being performed within a few hours following a bowel movement. Some patients may prefer to self-administer an enema in the morning prior to arrival for the procedure but it is not necessary. We generally suggest that the patient has had a normal bowel movement that morning before the procedure.
