  1. In oxygen therapy, the practitioner draws blood from the patient, mixes it with oxygen and ozone and then re-injects the oxygenated blood. The idea is that the oxygenated blood strengthens the weakened immune system and helps defend against the herpes virus. Oxygen therapy may be especially helpful for those with frequent or especially painful outbreaks of the herpes virus. However, not all states permit its use, and patients should inquire about the practitioner's experience treating herpes before trying oxygen therapy.
