Extracorporeal Blood Oxygenation and Ozonation

We are very pleased to announce that we now have one of the first units for EBO2 therapy in the Caribbean. This represents another quantum leap for our practice and our patients. 

What is EB02?

EBO2 stands for extracorporeal blood oxygenation and ozonation. This seems like a complicated phrase. If we break it down, we get an idea of what it really means. Extracorporeal means outside the body. Oxygenation means just what it says; putting oxygen into an area. Finally, ozonation means adding ozone to an area.

How Does It Work?

The ''EBO2'' is a modern high-volume blood gas exchange unit for the treatment of 5-7 liters of blood with medical ozone. The unit allows extracorporeal blood oxygenation, ozone exposure and blood filtration. The process filters blood in a unique way by using the integrated diffusing membranes within the filter fibers to trap lipids and proteins which are in excess in the venous blood supply. The EBO2 unit is considered the world's most advanced medical ozone therapy. Perhaps another way of looking at the process is to describe it as dialysis with ozonation. The EBO2 machine re-circulates a patient’s blood (5-7 liters) over a period of 60-90 minutes. The EBO2 treatment with medical ozone removes extra inactive proteins which lead to autoimmune related disorders, separate fats, cholesterol, heavy metal toxins, and diseased dead cells and then traps and removes impurities and fats in special patented filtration system. 

With the EBO2 method we are separating toxic blood waste products that the body cannot eliminate by conventional means, such as heavy metals, petroleum byproducts, inorganic substances, cellular waste and fat macroparticles, therefore reducing the inflammatory effects that are related with aging and chronic diseases. We are removing the ozone-oxidized leftover garbage of dead microbes, diseased cells and detoxified by-products that are filtered out of the blood via the external filters.

The waste products are not sent back through the liver, kidney and lymph systems to irritate and perhaps weaken the body further, as occurs in all other ozone methods. Perhaps the best description of the EBO2 method is to call it Recirculatory Autohemo-Perfusion followed by filtration.

What Are The Potential Benefits of the EBO2 ?

​Being the world’s most advanced medical ozone therapy, The EBO2 protocol has many potential benefits including:


  • Reducing the pathogen load of patients (Bacteria, Viruses, Fungi)

  • Strengthening and modulating the immune system

  • Reducing oxidative stress

  • Down regulating inflammation

  • Removing inflammatory proteins (which can lead to autoimmune disorders)

  • Removing heavy metals, mold, and other toxins

  • Removing excess cholesterol and fat from the bloodstream

  • Balancing blood pressure

  • Increasing physical performance

  • Removing excess cholesterol and fat from the bloodstream

  • Increasing stem cell proliferation and mobilization.

  • Reestablishing overall homeostasis in the body


How Does Ozone Therapy Work?

Ozone in a biological system will immediately interact with the double bonds found in amino acids and lipids (fats) to form compounds called peroxides. Bonds are what holds biological compounds together. It is the action of these peroxides that actually cause the biological effects seen with Ozone. These peroxides are collectively called ozonides. It should be mentioned that ozonides form what is called an ionic bond.

Not to get too technical, the ionic bond that Ozone forms is a magnetic type bond. Magnetic bonds do not produce free radicals. So unlike hyperbaric oxygen and other oxidative therapies, Ozone therapy does not produce a substantial number of free radicals. Remember that free radicals are responsible for DNA mutations, mitochondrial damage, and a host of other conditions which lead to degenerative conditions.

Oxygen utilization appears to be the single most important factor concerning aging and degenerative diseases. Ozone therapy has a very critical influence on Oxygen utilization. When cells use oxygen, they are actually producing the critical compound call ATP
