IV Ozone Therapy
IV ozone therapy can be a very powerful therapy to help alleviate chronic conditions and eradicate bacterial and viral pathogens. Those dealing with suppressed immune systems from chronic infections and or autoimmune disease IV ozone therapy benefits them by modulating the immune system to work more effectively. If your immune system is under performing, IV ozone therapy can bring it up, and vice versa. By using IV, the greatest concentration of ozone is introduced to your body allowing for the most effective treatment. Ozone is often used as an adjuvant therapy—an addition to the primary or initial therapy to maximize its effectiveness. At IFSMED, we use state-of-the-art equipment that is highly regarded as the best in the field.
Prior to any treatment, you will have a consultation with our naturopathic doctor to answer any questions and we will run bloodwork. All sessions take place at our clinic in San Diego.
What is the process? What is 10 pass ozone therapy?
Approximately 200ml of your blood is drawn and put into a machine that spins and ozonates your blood and is put back into your body through an IV. One cycle of this is called a pass, ten passes is the maximum amount of passes that can be done in a session. (Your blood is only drawn once, not ten times). Ten passes takes about 1-2 hours.
How many sessions will I need?
Each protocol will be individually based on your needs and the severity and duration of your symptoms. It is common to have an initial loading protocol (1 session a week for 10 weeks) followed by maintenance (every couple of months).
Who should consider IV ozone therapy?
- Those with chronic infections, gastrointestinal infections, chronic fatigue, rheumatoid arthritis, ankylosing spondylitis, fibromyalgia, myofascial pain etc..
- Those looking to boost their immune system during cold and flu season
- Those who have a run-down immune system from athletic performance
- Iv ozone therapy can also be considered for those looking to improve vascular performance from cardiac disease or stroke
Who should not consider IV ozone therapy?
Those on chronic anticoagulation therapy, pregnancy, genetic defect, clotting disorders
Ozone Sauna Therapy
Ozone sauna therapy benefits cardiovascular, respiratory, mental-emotional, immunological, and musculoskeletal health while engaging the self-healing mechanisms of the body. Though our ozone sauna therapy protocols are highly individualized and customized based on patient comfort and preferences, typical sessions are 30 minutes in duration and heated to between 105-120°F. We couple each ozone sauna therapy session with the use of pure oxygen being provided through a mask, which promotes systemic oxygenation leading to enhanced cellular energy production, metabolism, and modulation of immunity.
Ozone sauna benefits the following:
- Chronic neck, back, and joint/muscle pain
- Chronic fatigue
- Chronic insomnia
- Stress reduction
- Brain fog
- Chronic infection
- Sport injuries
- Improvement of athletic performance
Reasons to NOT use ozone sauna therapy:
- Pre-Existing Cardiac Conditions (arrhythmia, congestive heart failure, uncontrolled hypertension, etc.)
- Acute infection/inflammation (presenting with a fever or other acute symptoms)
- Acute thermal skin lesions (sunburn or other superficial burns)
- Thermally-induced seizures/fainting
- Lack of thermosensitivity
Ozone Sauna Therapy with Oxygen – 30 minutes – $70
This experience combines the traditionally foundational healing therapeutics of a humid steam sauna with the additional benefits of ozone sauna therapy, which include the stimulation of anti-oxidant systems, modulation of the immune system, and inhibition of infectious agents (i.e. – bacteria, fungi, etc.).
Far Infrared Sauna with Oxygen Therapy- 30 minutes – $60
Infrared saunas elicit their health promoting effects by utilizing the emission of energy wavelengths in the infrared range in order to activate the metabolic and physiologic activities of the tissues close to the surface of the skin, namely the superficial blood vessels, sweat glands, and nerve receptors.
IV Nutrient Therapy
IV nutrient therapy is a medical treatment that allows your doctor to provide you with vitamins, minerals, and other nourishing substances directly into circulation, which bypasses the digestive tract and any potential issues of malabsorption. These vital nutrients are infused together within a base solution that very effectively hydrates your body at the cellular level. Higher therapeutic doses of nutrients can be given than is otherwise possible by mouth without intestinal irritation.
Advanced Detoxification and Drainage – $250
For those experiencing symptoms of mild to moderate body toxicity (i.e. — headaches, brain fog, fatigue, mild body aches, skin disruptions, and minor alterations in bowel habits). The formula includes deeply nourishing vitamins and minerals combined with synergistic homeopathic remedies directed at reinforcing your organs of elimination (liver/intestines, kidneys, and lymphatic vessels) in a base solution targeting systemic hydration. Optimally combined with a glutathione push for its additional support of detoxification & immune-modulation.
Detoxification and Drainage – $200
Enhance the function of your organs of elimination (liver/intestines, kidneys, and lymphatic vessels) and works best when combined with other forms of detoxification support (nutritional cleanse, sauna with oxygen therapy, and/or exercise with oxygen therapy, etc.). Recommended as a series of 6 weekly or bi-weekly infusions.
Energy and Clarity – $200
Provide your cells with the necessary signaling to properly and efficiently run the biochemical engine housed within the mitochondria. Recommended as a series of 4 weekly or bi-weekly infusions.
Immunity and Resilience – $200
Designed to call your immune cells into action and direct your defenses to where they are needed most.Recommended bi-weekly during an acute infection or weekly throughout autumn and winter to establish ongoing resilience.
Rest and Recovery – $200

Amino Acid Therapy
Amino acids, often referred to as the building blocks of proteins, are compounds that play many critical roles in your body. They’re involved in important processes such as tissue growth, energy production, immune function and nutrient absorption.
Your body needs 20 different amino acids to grow and function properly. Though all 20 of these are important for your health, only nine amino acids are classified as essential.
Essential amino acids can’t be made by your body and must be obtained through your diet or supplementation. Dietary evaluation and testing can be done to see if you are lacking any essential amino acids and from there you can adjust your diet or take supplements to boost your levels. Supplementing with certain essential amino acids may help improve mood, boost exercise performance, prevent muscle loss and promote weight loss.
NAD IV Therapy
If you have heard of NAD therapy but are not sure exactly what it is, you are not alone! NAD stands for Nicotinamide Adenine Dinucleotide. NAD is essential for the production of ATP, your body’s energy molecule. NAD naturally declines with aging and stress, leading to a less energetic you. Typically administered through an IV, NAD has indications for decreasing chronic fatigue, increasing mental clarity, boosting metabolism and speeding athletic recovery.
