Ozone is probably one of the most miraculous healing therapies available on our planet at this time. Through its oxygenating power, it successfully treats and cures a wide range of serious degenerative conditions including cancer, cardio-vascular disease, diabetes, liver and kidney disease. Ozone is very potent electrified or energised oxygen (O3). ... Without [oxygen] we would die in minutes but in big cities the levels in the air are decreasing, causing widespread ill health.

Those who promote these [oxygen and ozone] therapies do so on the unfounded assumption that all disease, even disease as serious and complex as cancer, is caused by a lack of oxygen in body tissue. Their “remedies” claim to increase oxygen in tissues and thus improve the body’s ability to deter or fight disease. Not only are such therapies groundless and a waste of money, some of them are potentially harmful.

I have tried "mild" hyperbric oxygen therapy and it has worked to significantly improve severe tenonitis and some other old injuries. i've tried a couple of "external" ozone treatments for psoriasis and it seems to be helping noticeably.

See The Cause vs Correlation Pitch. Yes, you took the treatment, and you got better. That doesn't mean the treatment caused you to get better. Furthermore, the "it worked for me" reasoning is an example of generalizing from an anecdote.
