LIVV Natural Health is a medical wellness clinic focused on providing Ozone Therapy solutions in San Diego to enable you to live an optimal lifestyle.

All our doctors as well as our medical assistants are highly trained to perform all treatments. At LIVV, you can be sure that you are in the hands of qualified ozone therapists.
LIVV is proud to own a 10-pass ozone machine to provide both blood ozone and ozone insufflation performed by our highly-trained nurses and doctors. Our ozone machine is made from Germany and is the gold standard of ozone treatments. Ozone is a safe and effective therapy for many different acute and chronic health conditions.
Ozone therapy involves administering ozone gas into the body for therapeutic (pro-oxidative) benefit. Medical ozone has been shown to inactivate bacteria, viruses, fungi, yeast, and protozoa, as well as stimulate oxygenation, antioxidative responses, and the immune system.
Ozone therapy can detoxify and oxygenate the blood, thereby cleansing and energizing the entire body!
The two types of ozone therapy include IV (intravenous) ozone and ozone insufflation. IV ozone therapy involves administering ozone directly into the bloodstream, which promotes systemic (or body-wide) effects. Insufflations involve administering ozone directly into a body cavity, causing a more localized effect (like an internal rinse).
Ozone Therapy in San Diego can have the following benefits:
Chronic Viral Infections
Chronic Bacterial Infections
Ozone Administration Techniques
- The process involves mixing O3 gas into blood circulation. Treatments are characterized by a certain number of passes, each pass entails pulling out 200 mls of blood, spinning it with 70 gamma of ozone gas and heparin, and pressurizing it back into the body. This process is repeated until the desired number of passes is complete. Although each pass takes 30-45 seconds, ozone therapy sessions may last between 60-90 minutes depending on the number of passes completed.
- Most individuals start with 3-passes to see how they respond to the treatment, although one treatment can reach a maximum of 10-passes. The number of total treatments needed varies for each individual based on several factors such as the type/number of infection(s), level of inflammation, and progression of disease. This will be determined by your prescribing doctor.
All individuals require an initial consultation and bloodwork before having IV ozone done to assess health status and ensure safety. IV ozone therapy does pose risks, although when performed properly there are typically no adverse effects.
- Nasal ozone insufflation involves administering a 20-40 gamma of ozone through the nasal passages with the use of a syringe (without a needle). The ozonated oil ultimately reaches the sinuses, delivering its therapeutic actions along the way. This may cause an initial cleansing out of mucus drainage.
- This therapy has a cumulative effect, so it is often performed for several days in a row or multiple times each week until symptoms improve. A typical treatment series would last a total of 4-8 weeks, depending on the severity of infection.
Nasal ozone insufflation is a safe and effective way to simultaneously address the root cause and provide symptomatic relief for acute and chronic respiratory conditions. At LIVV, we offer ozone insufflation for the nasal cavities only, although in general it can be done for many different body cavities (e.g. mouth, ear, rectum, bladder, vagina).
Frequently Asked Questions
Everything you need to know about Ozone Therapy:
Ozone therapy itself is not harmful, but the handling of the ozone gas can be. Ozone gas is never inhaled in the medical setting due to its potential to damage the respiratory tract. Special precautions are in place at LIVV to prevent this and our ozone therapists are highly trained in carrying out safe treatments.
With any treatment that targets infections, the risk of a hertz (or “die-off”) reaction is possible. Symptoms are temporary and may include muscle/nerve pain, headache, fever, flushing, chills, sweats, brain fog, fatigue, digestive upset, and changes in heart rate and blood pressure.
Methods of administering ozone include IV ozone, ozone insufflation, ozonated ointments, ozonated water, autohemotherapy, and ozonated baths.
Yes, it is. Ozone is a colorless gas compound made up of three oxygen atoms. Studies over the years have shown that it is useful for medicinal purposes. At LIVV, we use IV therapy because it is the safest and the easiest. All our doctors and assistants have been specially trained to administer it, and we can assure you that you are in good hands.

Far from it. Naturopathic medicine is a genuine alternative to conventional medicine. Ozone has been used to treat various conditions for over 150 years. We have had benefits by using ozone treatment on our patients since inception, and numerous research papers have been written about the benefits of ozone. At LIVV, all our doctors are qualified and well trained in accredited universities.
Yes, it is. Ozonated water is water into which ozone has been dissolved. It is a very pure form of water, full of oxygen and ozone. Ozonated water can have several health benefits including fighting bacteria and improving brain function. It is also used in detoxing the body.
If you have been suffering from back pain, our specialists will need to look at you before deciding on any treatments. At LIVV, we give highly personalized care to our patients, and there is no one size fits all treatment. That said, in the past, we have used PRP (Platelet Rich Plasma) injections for our patients with back pain, and some have seen up to 90 % improvement within weeks.
Rheumatoid arthritis is an autoimmune disease which is an inflammatory disorder that leads to inflammation. Patients with rheumatoid arthritis suffer from joint pain, inflammations, and swelling. Ozone treatment has been seen to help alleviate the inflammation when introduced in the cells. It also activates the body’s defense system by activating antioxidants.
The FDA has not yet approved ozone treatment, but this does not in any way diminish its effectiveness. At LIVV, we recognize that most FDA approved medicines are standard of care but there are additional alternative therapies. Ozone therapy is a potential treatment option for several conditions including lyme disease and other infections.
No ozone is not illegal. At LIVV, we only administer ozone via IV and injections, taking the utmost care to keep our patients safe at all times.
You will be able to feel the results the day of the ozone treatment. Typically patients receive several ozone sessions for several weeks to get the full benefits of ozone treatments. This will be discussed during your naturopathic consultation.
Several years ago, ozone was quite misunderstood, and some people believed that it could cause cancer. Recent studies show that ozone can be used to potentially help many ailments such as Lyme disease, diabetes, breathing disorders, and even cancer.
Ozone therapy treatments are currently not covered by insurance. This is likely because the FDA does not yet recognize this route of treatment. However, if you pay with FSA/HSA for some of our natural medicine options, your insurance might reimburse you.
Ozone therapy and oxygen therapy are not the same thing. Ozone therapy constitutes injecting ozone into the body to flood the body with pro-oxidants to eradicate any harmful pathogens such as bacteria, viruses, and other organisms. Oxygen therapy uses a hyperbaric machine to increase air pressure up to three times the normal levels. This, in turn, increases the amount of oxygen going to body tissues.
Ozone therapy can be used for short-term relief of joint pain, but one of our doctors can recommend whether ozone or PRP would be the best option. IIf you are suffering from recurring knee pain, our PRP injections might sort out the problem once and for all. A PRP procedure involves injecting plasma (derived from your own body) to the affected part of the knee. This creates a healing response improving the affected area promoting healing and growth. It also helps to reduce pain and inflammation, improving the structure and function of the joint.
