Cutting-Edge Holistic Fertility Aid: Rejuvenating Fertility Center (RFC) Pioneers Ozone Sauna

New York, NY Rejuvenating Fertility Center (RFC) has pioneered the use of Ozone Sauna as a fertility aid for specific groups of women suffering from infertility. RFC is pleased to announce that it has begun accepting appointments for this innovative new technology.

Ozone is similar to oxygen, but is more concentrated and powerful than the oxygen we breathe. Ozone sauna therapy is recommended for women who:

1) have low ovarian reserve

2) have poor response to IVF medications

3) have poor egg/embryo quality

4) are over 40 years old and trying to conceive

5) have endometriosis 

6) have a thin endometrial lining

7) have inflammatory disease

8) have anxiety

In the ozone sauna machine, ozone enters the body through the skin and via a small catheter placed vaginally. Via the skin route, the humid heat opens the pores and ozone is able to penetrate through the skin in order to circulate throughout the entire body. Via the vaginal route, ozone directly enters the uterus and the fallopian tubes to reach the ovaries. Ozone sauna works by a detoxification technique and lowers body toxins. In addition to its antioxidant, anti-inflammatory, antiviral, and antibacterial properties, ozone induces the blood vessels to dilate more thus leading to more blood flow to tissue organs (called vasodilatation).

The providers at RFC, headed by founder Dr. Zaher Merhi, recognized the benefits of ozone sauna therapy as it relates to fertility and its associated anxiety and have adapted the technology accordingly. “Ozone therapy has been shown to have many benefits,” says Dr. Merhi. “It’s been used to treat skin conditions such as eczema and psoriasis; inflammatory disorders such as arthritis; vascular diseases; infections; and even anxiety. It only made sense to apply the benefits of ozone therapy to fertility.”

Dr. Merhi, a board-certified Reproductive Endocrinology and Infertility specialist, is the first to have published manuscripts showing the fertility benefits of ozone sauna in women with low ovarian reserve, endometriosis, and thin endometrial lining for implantation. Dr. Merhi has conducted extensive research showing that ozone has the potential to boost fertility especially in women over the age of 35, and can prove beneficial alongside more traditional in vitro fertilization (IVF) treatments.

Ozone sauna is part of RFC’s newest protocol of offering a comprehensive and customized fertility plan to patients. Whether a woman has been trying for years to get pregnant or is just beginning her attempts to conceive, RFC can implement multiple treatments, including ozone sauna, to reduce stress, lower body inflammation, and support fertility.

“Ozone is emerging as a new adjunct therapeutic agent for female infertility,” Dr. Merhi wrote in one of his research papers. “Results suggested that ozone therapy could have beneficial effects 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.”

In another paper, Dr. Merhi studied a cohort of  patients who had a persistently thin endometrial lining despite the use of several medical agents known to improve endometrial lining thickness. This condition represents a huge challenge during frozen embryo transfer (FET) cycles. The patients received a combination of transdermal and intravaginal ozone therapy, along with Pulsed Electro-Magnetic Field (PEMF) therapy using the HOCATT machine. The treatments were successful in improving the thickness of the endometrial lining in all  patients. He also showed that ozone can improve egg quality in women with poor ovarian reserve. 

Dr. Merhi considers this to be a huge success and plans to continue his research into the benefits for ozone sauna therapy as it pertains to fertility. The team at RFC are excited to offer this cutting-edge new technology as a fertility adjunct to both local patients in New York and Connecticut as well as patients worldwide receiving remote care from RFC.

Rejuvenating Fertility Clinic is New York and Connecticut’s first IVF Center to offer non-conventional, holistic, and organic fertility methods. The clinic is currently accepting patients and offers a variety of IVF options, egg donation and surrogacy, and other fertility treatments such as PRP ovarian rejuvenation.
