An ozone molecule is composed of three oxygen atoms (O3), oxygen is composed of two molecules (O2). Ozone (O3) kills bacteria, viruses, yeast and fungi. Ozone therapy stimulates a chain reaction within the body, in a positive manner. Activating the body to rebalance and heal itself using its own defenses.

Because ozone has a positive charge it’s effective in neutralizing and killing negatively charged microorganisms that are commonly creating havoc in the ears, nose and sinuses. This means it effectively removes yeast, fungus, bacteria, viruses and protozoa without the use of medications that may have unwanted side effects. For this reason, there are more than 40,000 doctors in over 100 countries that treat diseases using ozone therapy.

Ear Ozone Therapy

The ear is composed of three regions: inner, middle and outer ear. Infections can occur in any of these regions, the most common being the middle and outer ear. These infections can be caused by bacteria or virus and can cause pain, inflammation, dizziness, headaches, fever, and hearing troubles.

Chronic ear infections are often caused by the Eustachian tube failing to drain the fluid that builds-up within the middle ear region. Chronic ear problems can occur due to weakened immune systems such as those with upper respiratory issues, those with chronic skin conditions or diabetes. If left untreated chronic ear infections can lead to permanent hearing damage. Hearing damage can often be shown in the form of ringing in the ears, known as tinnitus.

Ozone ear insufflation is an efficient method in treating ear infections and sterilizing the ear regions to prevent further infection from developing.

Benefits of ear insufflation

  • Treatment of ear infections
  • Treatment of sinus infections
  • Treatment of throat infections
  • Treatment of fungus
  • Treatment of mold toxicity
  • Treatment of colds/flu
  • Treatment of swollen glands
  • Treatment of inner ear acoustic trauma
  • Increased vasodilation
  • Increased antioxidants
  • Induced reparative effects
  • Potential to prevent hearing loss pre-exposure to acoustic trauma
  • Treatment of sudden idiopathic deafness
  • Improvements in vertigo
  • Improvements in tinnitus
  • Improvements in Nystagmus (uncontrolled rapid eye movements)

How Ozone Ear Insufflation Works

The patient will sit comfortably in a chair. Earscopes, (similar to what a stethoscope looks like) will be applied. The earscopes include a nozzle that will lightly blow ozone directly into the ear canal. Stimulating the nerve receptors which will then start the process in decreasing pain and allow the pathogens to be killed that are causing infection. The session will last anywhere from 8-15 minutes depending on the patients particular situation. 

Initial studies have shown that 67% of patients reported total pain relief within two hours following Ear Ozone Insufflation treatment.

Contraindications for Nasal and Ear Insufflation Ozone Therapy

  • pregnancy
  • blood clotting issues
  • anemia
  • ozone allergy
  • Punctured ear drum

Benefits of ozone in general

  • Increased oxygen efficiency
  • Increased immune system
  • Mediated oxidative stress
  • Improved microcirculation

In conclusion, Nasal and Ear Insufflation Ozone Therapy offers an alternative to unwanted medications. Effective in both acute and chronic conditions, utilizing efficient results with minimum recovery time and virtually no side effects.  

Nasal Ozone Therapy

Many studies have shown that virus, bacteria and other invaders enter the body via the nasal canal and sinuses. This is often a site were viruses and bacteria can proliferate before spreading through the body.

Nasal insufflation using medical grade ozone as a quick and effective way to administer disease fighting molecules into the body, as this method is more readily absorbed. Not only does this help with acute and chronic issues but has been shown to prevent future issues from arising.

With nasal ozone therapy, the ozone is run through olive oil so it can be breathed in safely via tubes placed in the nose (nasal canula). This treatment has a number of benefits that are safe and effective without the use of medications that could potentially have unwanted side effects.

How Nasal Ozone Insufflation Works

The patient will sit comfortably in a chair. A nasal cannula will be applied to the nose. This will lightly blow ozone directly into the nasal cavity. Stimulating disease fighting molecules. The session will last anywhere from 8-15 minutes depending on the patient’s particular situation.  The amount of ozone will be determined by Dr. Nathan Eldredge to ensure a safe and effective therapeutic effect.
