Studies using ozone were first initiated in animal models of cancer in the 1970s. Currently, ozone therapy is applied as an adjuvant against cancer. This is because it has been proven that ozone has an oxygenating effect on cancer cells, thus delaying the growth of neoplasms. Thanks to this alternative medicine, the following is achieved:

  • Metabolic regulation and decrease of lactic acidosis.
  • An increase in the level of antioxidants.
  • The transitory production of oxidation affects tumor cells, but not healthy cells.
  • A decrease in inflammatory processes.

In fact, there are studies carried out in patients diagnosed with cancer treated with ozone therapy whose results offer a considerable improvement in various immunological parameters (immunomodulation of the defensive system). If we take into account that one of the key factors of cancer is the inflammation caused by oxidants, which favors oncological processes, it can be said that the application of ozone gas on the organism attenuates its evolution.

Therefore, it can be concluded that the use of ozone therapy is an effective complement not only to reduce the side effects of cancer treatments such as chemotherapy and radiotherapy, but also to improve patients' quality of life by boosting their immune system.

In this regard, the University Hospital of Gran Canaria received an award for the study of its specialists of the Research and Chronic Pain Units on the benefits of ozone in the management of the toxicity of cancer treatments. This study is based mainly on the scientific evidence of cancer treatment with O3.

Research has revealed that human cancer cells in breast, lung and uterine tumors are inhibited by O3 therapy in vitro.

Ozone therapy

In Clínica Mediterránea Médica based on our experience with patients treated with ozone, we can affirm that the results indicate a notable improvement in the patient's quality of life, with a notable decrease in pain and tumor markers of between 18 to 45%.

OBSERVATIONS: we cannot guarantee that this signifies an increase in survival, but it does imply an increase in the quality of life.

Ozone therapy is administered by the following routes:

  • Rectal ozone therapy in doses of 200 to 300 cc.
  • Vaginal ozone therapy in doses of 1000 to 3000 cc.
  • Nasojejunal ozone therapy. (Variable dose).
  • Intravenous ozone therapy or major autohemotherapy.

Finally, this is perhaps the most effective way of all:

Intraperitoneal ozone therapy: in which a plastic catheter is introduced intra-abdominally and is held to the skin with a stitch; after which between 1000 to 3000 cubic centimeters of ozone are introduced daily, which are later expelled and emptied from the abdominal cavity. This is done for 5 days, with the possibility of repeating a second week of treatment.

The results are quite good in general, with a notable improvement in the patient's quality of life, a decrease in pain and a decrease in tumor markers of between 18 to 45%.

After this treatment, obviously, with the passage of time the markers have a tendency to rise.
