Examples of conditions we treat
Chronic Lyme Disease
High Dose Ozone Therapy (HDOT) has a number of beneficial biological effects that can be harnessed both for health optimization and for treating a wide range of disease states. For example, ozone is a hormetic stress on the body and as such, it triggers a number of important, healthy adaptive changes with each exposure. Ozone is also a direct antimicrobial and augments activity of the immune system against bacteria, viruses, and fungi including mold. Another way ozone therapy helps the immune system is by modulating its activity and keeping it in a homeostatic state, thus helping address some autoimmune conditions. Finally, ozone works through nitric oxide to improve circulation and tissue oxygenation. A very important point to keep in mind is that there are several forms of HDOT, with some more grounded in fact than others. To avoid wasting time and resources, it’s essential to work with a physician who has years of experience, has treated a multitude of conditions, and has invested in state of the art equipment.
What to expect: This therapy typically takes 1-1 1/2 hours. An IV is placed for the treatment which is used to facilitate ozonation of the blood once the treatment is complete the IV is removed and people continue on with their day. Only precaution that is notable is that a blood thinner is used for this treatment and activities afterward should take this into account (i.e. no contact sports or activities that are high risk for trauma/head injury for 3-4 hours after the treatment).
