Ozone Q & A

What is intravenous ozone therapy?

Medical ozone therapy, or intravenous ozone therapy, has its origins as far back as 1885 here in the United States. It was used during World War I to treat wounds, and it was later found to be useful for many other diseases and health conditions.

Today, direct intravenous (DIV) ozone therapy is the most common method used worldwide. Dr. Robins has pioneered modification of this into the Robins Method of Direct Intravenous Ozone Therapy (RMDIV). This is now considered to be not only the safest, but most effective way of using DIV ozone therapy. With this method, Dr. Robins safely injects oxygen and ozone gas into your vein to help fight toxins and infections, and to treat numerous chronic health conditions.

Studies have shown that ozone therapy improves your body’s intake and use of oxygen and activates your immune system to fight off disease. Ozone therapy has also been shown to improve blood flow and generate anti-inflammatory effects.
