Women's Health - How to do Vaginal Insufflation

Ozone Therapy Made Easy

Many people reading this blog are already familiar with the benefits of ozone therapy and all the science which backs up this discipline.

However, what our clients often want to know "what is the most effective form of home ozone therapy for me?"

Of course this varies depending on the person and what outcomes they are trying to achieve, but generally speaking, even if you are using other protocols to target specific issues, a systemic boost is always likely to improve the way your body functions.

When it comes to home ozone therapy, there are two main options for systemic ozone application: rectal insufflation (RI) and vaginal insufflation (VI).

Many women find VI more comfortable that RI - and a good excuse to lie back in bed with a book! There are also localised benefits for the female reproductive system. See this report Ozone therapy: a potential therapeutic adjunct for improving female reproductive health:

"Results suggested that ozone therapy could have beneficial effect on tubal occlusion, could protect from endometritis and vaginitis, might protect ovaries from ischemia and oocyte loss and finally might lead to less formation of pelvic adhesions"

This video outlines the conditions that VI can support, the equipment needed to administer VI and how to perform VI safely and effectively at home.

Video Transcript: 


Welcome to the Natural Ozone YouTube Channel. My name is Kim Saxton, director of Natural Ozone, a family run Kiwi company dedicated to helping you harness the many benefits of ozone.

Please note, this video is not intended as personal medical advice. For all medical issues, please consult your health professional. Ozone therapy does have a firm scientific basis, in fact there are over 11 000 scientific articles related to ozone therapy on the Pub Med data base in the USA. 

In this video, we will discuss how to perform vaginal insufflation, or VI as we prefer to say. Sounds a bit scary? Don’t worry, it won’t hurt a bit!

Why perform VI?

VI is used in ozone therapy to introduce ozone into the female reproductive system. It is also believed to introduce ozone into general circulation for systemic benefit.

What Conditions Does VI Support?

Please note: Natural Ozone do not claim that this protocol will cure any conditions. There is a wealth of scientific data which you can access through the Natural Ozone study library to help guide your decision making. We always recommend that you follow the advice of your chosen health practitioner.

People have reported success using VI as a complementary therapy to support their healing with many different conditions including venereal diseases, vaginal infections, yeast infections, abdominal pain, endometriosis.

Special note: VI is not recommended close to or during menstruation as it can increase blood flow. VI is also not recommended during pregnancy.

Some people prefer to use a humidifier for VI. For more information on using a humidifier with ozone therapy, see our video entitled “Home Ozone Therapy Protocols – How to Use a Humidifier” 

Home ozone therapy equipment needed to perform VI

For this protocol, you need the following equipment: 

  • Natural Ozone Home Ozone Therapy Protocol Handbook
  • Oxygen supply 
  • Natural Ozone Ozonode medical ozone generator
  • Long silicon tube
  • Catheter (you can use the same type of catheter as for RI but do not use the same one for sanitary reasons)
  • Towel

      Oxygen bottles  

    These items are all available in our ozone therapy bundles. 


    How to perform VI at home using medical home ozone therapy equipment

    Connect the oxygen supply to the O2 in nozzle at the back of your Ozonode. We have separate videos on setting this up depending on whether you are using an oxygen concentrator or bottled oxygen. So, if this is the first time you are using your home ozone therapy equipment, please visit the appropriate video.

    You will see that your Ozonode has a three-position switch marked M1, off, and M2. When we use the settings one to four, we have the switch on M1 and use the outlet marked O3 out 1

    When we use the settings five or six, we turn the switch to M2 and the outlet marked O3 out 2.

    Ensure that the Ozonode is plugged in and switched on at the wall. Set the power switch to M1

    Which level setting you will use depends on the concentration of ozone that you intend using.

    This is measured in micrograms per litre, also called gamma.

    Refer to the chart on your machine to determine which level and flow rate correspond with the gamma you require.



    Please consult your health practitioner for personal medical advice. In the protocol handbook, we pass on the general advice from the Madrid Declaration on Ozone Therapy from the International Scientific Committee of Ozone Therapy.

    It is always advised to start low and slowly build up the dosage over a long period of time.

    In this case, we are going to make medical ozone at 28 gamma with a flow rate of 1/8 litre/minute. Referring to the chart, we can see that we need the setting L1.

    If you are using an oxygen concentrator, allow 5 minutes for it to warm up, then turn the knob on the low flow meter until the ball is hovering around 1/8.

    If you are using a gas bottle, turn on the tap and then adjust the low flow regulator to 1/8

    Connect the long silicon tube supplied with the Ozonode to the outlet O3 out 1

    Connect your VI catheter to the other end of the silicon tube

    Press the button L1

    Allow the machine to run for a couple of minutes to warm up. Meanwhile, undress and make yourself comfortable on a bed with a towel below and blanket on top.

    Lubricate and insert the catheter 100mm into the vaginal cavity

    Relax with a good book for the time prescribed in your protocol

    Remember to switch off the machines and turn off your oxygen supply.

    Wash and sterilise the catheter
