Oxygen — it helps your body repair itself and fight life-threatening diseases. Ozone therapy is a cutting-edge treatment that uses O3 gas to oxygenate your cells and provide optimal health benefits. Learn five fascinating facts about this treatment.
Did you know you breathe in and out 22,000 times a day? You need oxygen to survive. It’s an important part of your body’s growth, reproduction, and ability to convert food into fuel.
Oxygenation helps your body repair itself and boost your immune system, which fights off many life-threatening diseases. While your body does this itself, improving your oxygen levels with ozone therapy can repair your cells to provide optimal health and vitality.
Southern Secrets Medical Spa, located in Conroe, Texas, is here to inform you of five fascinating facts about ozone therapy to help you decide if it’s right for you.
1. More oxygenating than the air you breathe
Every day, you breathe in oxygen (O2) which contains two oxygen atoms. In ozone therapy, O3 oxygen is administered to your body for short periods. O3 is a powerful oxidizing agent that involves three oxygen atoms, making it the most stable oxygen that provides an influx of health benefits.
When you come in for your appointment, Andrew Martin, MSN-FNP-C draws a small blood sample from your arm. Next, he prepares the ozone sample by mixing your blood with medical-grade ozone. Then, he administers the ozone sample into your body with an IV drip.
2. Can improve a variety of health concerns
Ozone therapy isn’t a new concept. In fact, it’s been used medically for over a hundred years to disinfect supplies and treat a variety of conditions.
This colorless gas can be used to treat a variety of health concerns and has been successful in:
- Disinfecting wounds
- Treating arthritis
- Treating cancer
- Fighting viral diseases like HIV and SARs

Most patients need a series of 6-10 treatments to get the results they want. Appointments take about 30 minutes and we suggest undergoing several treatments per week to experience optimal health.
3. Boosts your immune system in three ways
Your immune system is responsible for fighting off harmful antigens from entering the body. Ozone therapy can help boost your immune system in three ways.
Firstly, oxygen ozone is proven effective in killing bacteria and fungi, while inactivating viruses. Oxygen ozone also increases oxygenation to tissues and allows your body increased strength to fight back. Lastly, ozone stimulates your immune cells and improves your red blood cells’ oxygenation — releasing growth factors in your body and improving healing.

4. Provides beautiful, anti-aging benefits
As you get older, you’ve probably noticed your skin has aged in the form of wrinkles, large pores, and dull skin. Not only does ozone therapy provide impressive health benefits, but also has amazing anti-aging properties.
By providing improved circulation, ozone therapy helps oxygenate every cell in your body for improved energy and vitality. The treatment is a natural antioxidant that eliminates many skin impurities while improving diseases — including skin diseases.
Ozone therapy provides the following skin benefits:
- Improves collagen and elastin

- Erases scars
Ozone therapy works for the skin by delaying the aging process and healing the skin from the inside out.
5. Improves your brain function
Do you experience brain fog? More than 600 million patients experience brain fog – a lack of mental focus and difficulty concentrating. Brain fog is a common side effect of COVID but can also be caused by anxiety, stress, and being overworked.
One of the best benefits of ozone therapy is its ability to boost your cognitive function. As previously mentioned, ozone therapy uses a third oxygen molecule that stimulates your mitochondria to provide improved brain function.
