Despite promising outlooks and a long history of success, both ozone therapy and ultraviolet blood irradiation (UBI) therapy are often overlooked. In the face of modern drug-focused medical treatments, these therapies have been all-but forgotten. We’re hoping to change that.

The reality is that both treatments are safe and effective. In fact, they’re practically the Wonder Twins of wellness – and they’re even more powerful as a dynamic duo. The combined therapy can help treat a broad range of conditions with next to no negative side effects.

Read on to learn more about this incredible treatment option and what it can do for you and your loved ones.

How Ozone Therapy Works

Medical ozone therapy introduces ozone into the body in a variety of ways, including: drinking ozonated water, inhaling ozonated air, and direct injection into the blood stream.

What is the difference between ozone therapy and ozone gas? Ozone therapy uses ozone gas and injects it into the body to treat wounds or diseases.

Intravenous ozone therapy instantly increases the amount of oxygen in the blood. The ozone molecules, higher in oxygen than typical oxygen molecules, react with blood, tissues, and organs. The increased oxygen helps to destroy microorganisms like bacteria, viruses, and fungi, resulting in a range of therapeutic effects.

Ozone therapy is a natural treatment that helps to detoxify the body and improve overall health. It is also an effective way to reduce inflammation and pain, improve blood flow, and aid in cellular regeneration.

Conditions Treated

Ozone therapy can help with a number of viral, bacterial, and fungal ailments, including:

  • Autoimmune Diseases
    • Lupus
    • Rheumatoid Arthritis
    • Fibromyalgia
    • Chronic Fatigue
  • Circulatory Diseases
    • Neuropathy
    • Atherosclerosis
    • Peripheral Artery Disease
  • Viral Diseases
    • Influenza
    • Epstein-Barr Virus
    • Cytomegalovirus
    • Hepatitis
    • Herpes Simplex Virus
  • Intestinal Disorders
    • Crohn’s
    • Ulcerative Colitis
    • As well as: detoxification, inflammation, non-healing wounds, degenerative joints, eye disorders, and general fatigue.

How UBI Works

Ultraviolet blood irradiation therapy is known as “The Cure that Time Forgot”. The process was first used in 1928, and involves treating the patient’s blood with ultraviolet light. A small amount of blood is extracted, mixed with saline, and then exposed to UV light. Then the blood is returned to the body through a closed-loop system.

Exposure to the UV light kills bacteria and other organisms in the blood, as well as increasing white blood cell activity. UBI therapy is a safe and effective treatment that can help to improve the health of many patients.

Conditions Treated

UBI treatment can help combat a number of chronic infections and immune diseases, including but not limited to:

  • Viral Infections
    • HIV
    • Hepatitis
    • Influenza
    • Herpes simplex/zoster
    • Mononucleosis
    • Mumps
    • Measles Infections
    • Viral Pneumonia
    • Polio
  • Bacterial Infections
    • Pneumonia
    • Wound Infections
    • Septicemia (staphylococcus, streptococcus, pneumococcus)
    • Lymphatic infections (lymphangitis)
    • Peritonitis Recurrent skin infections (furunculosis, carbunulosis)
    • E-coli
    • Necrotizing infections
  • Autoimmune Diseases
    • Fibromyalgia
    • Chronic Fatigue
    • Lupus
    • Lyme Disease
    • Rheumatoid Arthritis
    • Psoriasis
    • Psoriatic Arthritis
    • Raynaud’s Disease
    • Sclera derma
    • Multiple Sclerosis
  • Inflammatory Conditions
    • Arthritis
    • Fibrositis
    • Bursitis
    • Iritis
    • Uveitis
    • Pancreatitis
  • Circulation Conditions
    • Varicose Veins
    • Peripheral Vascular Disease
    • Gangrene
    • Vascular Headaches
    • Deep Vein Thrombosis
    • Claudication
    • Diabetic Ulcers
    • Thrombophlebitis
  • Respiratory Diseases
    • COPD
    • Asthma
    • Emphysema
    • Sinusitis
    • Bronchitis
    • Tuberculosis

Why combine UBI and ozone?

The benefits of combining ultraviolet blood irradiation therapy (UBI) and ozone therapy are manifold. Firstly, UBI is able to kill bacteria and viruses in the treated blood, while ozone stimulates an immunomodulatory effect.

By combining Ozone (O3) and UV light therapy, energy is added to the red blood cells causing a healing cascade to occur, and Ozone in the blood causes oxidative stress, triggering the body to respond and heal. Pathogens are exposed to the immune system, allowing the body to initiate a secondary immune response.

Ozone therapy is also known for its anti-inflammatory properties, which can be beneficial in treating a wide range of conditions. When used in combination with UBI, these properties are enhanced, providing a more powerful treatment.

What to Expect

What is the ozone therapy dosage? A typical ozone therapy treatment may use 40-70 gamma of ozone mixed with 60cc of the patient’s blood, but specific dosages are dependent on the individual patient and treatment plan.

How many treatments do you need? It generally takes 5-10 treatments of UBI with ozone to see lasting results.

How do you feel after ozone therapy? Beyond improvement of symptoms, when undergoing UBI with ozone, you may experience a boost in mood and energy. The therapy is also associated with improved memory and cognitive function.

One potential side effect of the treatment is Herxheimer reaction. This involves a brief worsening of symptoms or illness before improvement. As the enhanced immune system kills off an increased number of pathogens, those pathogens have to be released into the bloodstream for removal.

Chances of a Herxheimer reaction may be mitigated by a gradual introduction of UBI with ozone. This can help to prevent overloading the patient’s body.


UBI with ozone is an extraordinarily safe procedure. Adverse effects are generally mild and short-lived. They may include a feeling of warmth or tingling at the injection site, pain, swelling, and bruising.

There is a very small risk of infection at the injection site, increased bleeding time, or a Herxheimer reaction. M Center technicians are highly trained and always do our best to minimize these risks.
