What is EBOO?
EBOO stands for Extracorporeal Blood Oxygenation and Ozonation. It is considered to be the world’s most advanced medical ozone treatment. EBOO is a form of dialysis that cleans the blood from the debris of destroyed germs, heavy metals, fungus, and other pathogens. As blood is drawn from the vein, it circulates through the proprietary EBOO machine where it is filtered. The purified blood then gets ozonated and reintroduced to the body through a different vein. The process is done through a closed system and the blood is never exposed to the outside elements so there is no risk of contamination. A total of 2 liters (2000 ml) of blood is treated using up to 70,000-150,000 mg of ozone. The entire process takes about 50 minutes. During treatment, we can see the dead cells, proteins, and fats removed from the blood.

What conditions improve with EBOO?
EBOO is normally beneficial to everyone. It is generally safe and has no long-term risks. It is especially effective for improving:
What baseline labs are suggested to monitor for changes in inflammation during and after the procedure?
CBC (Complete blood count), CMP (Comprehensive metabolic profile), CRP (C-reactive protein), G-6PD (Glucose 6 phosphate deficiency enzyme) are the required labs.
Contraindications (who cannot safely receive EBOO)?
Patients with blood coagulation disorders, bleeding organs, thrombocytopenia (low platelets), hemorrhagic or apoplectic stroke, recent MI (heart attack), alcohol intoxication, G-6PD deficiency, uncontrolled hyperthyroidism, leukemia, first trimester pregnancy, photosensitivity, sulfa drugs, patients with allergies to heparin or other anticoagulants.
How long does an EBOO treatment take to administer?
Once the machine is hooked up to both IV sites, a “Full” EBOO treatment should run over 50 min. You should plan on 1.5 hours from start to finish to allow for explanation of procedure and questions, as well as access of the IV sites. (“Half” EBOO treatments run over 25 min, so plan for an hour).
How often can EBOO be given?
EBOO treatment recommendations vary based on the patient’s health status and goal of therapy. Everyone must start with a regular UVBI with ozone treatment that contains lower amounts of gamma to assess for response and verify compatibility with the dose of ozone. Each patient’s plan will be determined after meeting with an EBOO certified staff member to evaluate for contraindications, order pre-treatment bloodwork, and receive education on the risks/benefits, expectations of therapy, and sign the consent for treatment. Patients may need to titrate up to a full dose of EBOO. Low dose heparin is given during the EBOO treatment, so please make sure you list any anticoagulant medications or supplements you are on so adjustments can be made if need be.
