EBOO Ozone Therapy Treatment (Apheresis)
Extracorporeal Blood Oxygenation, Ozonation and Filtration.
EBOO ozone therapy is the most advanced minimally invasive intravenous therapies available to detox your blood. While there are a number of devices that can ozonate your blood in a precise and safe way, this is the only device that can actually filter your blood while it is being ozonated… and that is its greatest benefit.

That is why we call the treatment EBOO /F, for filtration.
A Brief Overview of Ozone in Medicine
Ozone has a wide range of therapeutic uses in the human body. We are only going to touch on a few.
When introduced to the blood, ozone has been reported to activate the immune system by stimulating the release of growth factors and other mediators, increases the oxygen carrying capacity of red blood cells and reduces ischemia in vascular disease by increasing the red blood cells pliability and flexibility.
Ozone also reverses the rouleaux formations we see in the blood of Long COVID patients, immediately improving red blood cell function.
Methods of Introducing Ozone into the Blood
There are several different methods of administering ozone into the blood of a patient. Minor autohemotherapy, also known as single dose ozone therapy is one. MAH or major autohemotherapy, also known as hyperbaric ozone therapy, or “the 10 pass device” is another. These are a couple of the most common ozone therapy treatments.
In the last 5 years, EBOO /F re-emerged in the U.S. and is quickly becoming the gold standard of ozone therapy due to the quantity of ozone it delivers and its ability to filter toxic debris from the blood.
Single Dose Ozone Therapy / Minor Autohemotherapy
Minor Autohemotherapy involves the extraction of the patient’s blood into an IV bag. Ozone is then introduced into the bag and mixed with the blood.
The ozone infused blood is then dripped back into the patient. This method of administration is also know has Single Dose Ozone Therapy or SDOT.
High Dose Ozone Therapy / Major Autohemotherapy
During Hyperbaric Ozone Therapy a specific amount of the patient’s blood is removed under pressure into a plastic “egg-shaped” container. While in the container the blood is infused with ozone. When this process is complete, the ozone infused blood is returned to the patient.
The hyperbaric ozone therapy device does this 10 times, hence the “10 pass device” nickname. This method of administration is also know as High Dose Ozone Therapy or HDOT. Recent studies have shown that HDOT stimulates the mitochondria in blood mononuclear cells.
Extracorporeal Blood Oxygenation, Ozonation and Filtration
The “newest” administration of ozone into the blood of a patient is EBOO /F, also known as Recirculatory Hemoperfusion (RHP), Apheresis and Ozone Dialysis.
In actuality, it isn’t really new as it has been used and perfected overseas for some 30+ years now. For unknown reasons, EBOO Ozone Therapy recently started to be used again here in the U.S. and is quickly gaining in popularity due to its effectiveness.
EBOO ozone therapy uses a pump to extract the patient’s blood from one arm. The blood then enters a dialysis chamber (dialyzer) from the bottom and flows upwards around tiny tubules in the chamber that filter out harmful debris and toxins.
The blood flows against a countercurrent of ozone. Once the blood has been filtered, purified and infused with ozone, it is returned to the patient via an IV in their other arm.
What is EBOO /F Ozone Therapy (Apheresis)?
Invented in the 1980s, EBOO /F has been regularly performed for at least two decades with no published reports of adverse events.
In the last 13 years. major improvements have been made to the technology. The EBOO /F ozone therapy device we use today was developed by an intensive collaboration between multiple academic institutions and industry partners.
How the Filtration Works
EBOO /F is somewhat similar to dialysis, which filters out of your blood waste chemicals that healthy kidneys normally accomplish for you.
It is a process in which different constituents of the blood can be separated from one another and treated individually.
- Red blood cell
- White blood cells
- Platelets/Stem Cells
Various apheresis filters called dialyzers are engineered differently and from different materials in order to filter out specifically targeted elements. Historically, dialyzers were designed as a last resort to capture and remove excess lipids from patients at risk for cardiovascular failure, who did not respond to conventional therapy.
The body has two primary mechanisms for cleansing and detoxing your blood, your kidneys and liver. However they are not good at removing some specific toxic debris that make us very sick.
The EBOO /F is essential in that it is engineered to cleanse your blood of physical debris that neither the kidneys, nor liver, are capable of removing.
Why is the EBOO /F Filtration Important?
In cases of chronic infections, such as:
Other common blood toxins:
- Heavy metals
- Residuals for medications
- Environmental toxins – pesticides etc.
- Industrial toxins
- Excessive and/or abnormal blood clotting
- Micro clots
Even after the original pathogen has been killed, many patients still suffer debilitating symptoms that destroy their lives. Many Integrative physicians believe that this is due to residual “debris” left over from the infection. Endotoxins, cellular debris from dead pathogens, biofilm, micro clots, abnormal clotting (a characteristic of CV19 and LHC) and even debris from our own tissues damaged by the infection and the medications used to kill it. Our kidneys and liver are not designed to clear this debris, so it persists in our body as toxins that wreak havoc on us.
The EBOO /F filtration is designed to clear this debris. We can actually see the “gunk” being sucked out of these patients, and captured by the filter, allowing purified blood to be re-infused back into them.
Many patients report immediate relief from their symptoms… literally during their first treatment with EBOO /F.
What Conditions can Benefit from EBOO /F Ozone Therapy?
EBOO /F is used to aid a variety of chronic diseases including:
- Auto-immune Diseases
- Long-Haul COVID
- Lyme Disease
- Brain fog
- Chronic fatigue states
- Chronic bladder conditions
- Crohn’s disease
- Eczema and Psoriasis
- Lipid disorders
- Cardiovascular disease
- Peripheral Arterial Disease (PAD)
- Coronary Disease
- Severe Dyslipidemia
- Madelung Disease
- Necrotizing Fasciitis
EBOO /F Treatment and Long COVID
Depending on the severity of the typical COVID patient’s symptoms EBOO /F sessions will range from 1 – 10 treatments. Rarely will we need to go beyond 5 treatments.

Often “gunk” will be observed emerging within the flow of venous blood. “Gunk” will typically stop appearing by the third EBOO /F treatment. However, an IV chelation with disodium EDTA 1-2 days prior to the next EBOO /F treatment often releases additional “gunk”.

Watch the video : If You have Long COVID & Feel Hopeless, Just Know, There’s Hope for Healing.
“I’m Lisa. I’m here because I have Long Haul COVID. I had to stay home. I just kept thinking, okay, it’ll be soon. I’m going to be healed soon. But the symptoms started getting worse. After several months it just gets wearing on you. You’re there, but you’re not. You’re not there.
To be able to do things after work again. It just feels like I’m able to live again. I feel like I have life back in me.
If you have Long COVID and you’re feeling like there’s no end to it, or that it’s just hopeless, just know, that it’s not. There’s hope for… for healing. Definitely be encouraged by people who have been through it and who have come out on the other side.”
Extracorporeal Blood Oxygenation, Ozonation and Filtration FAQs
Q. Is the EBOO /F the same as plasmapheresis?
A. There are numerous forms of Apheresis depending on what exactly is being filtered out of the blood. Plasmapheresis is one of these forms.
Q. How much blood is filtered through the EBOO /F device?
A. The procedure takes approximately an hour. In that time between 4 – 5 liters of blood are filtered.
The typical adult has on average 4.5-5.5 liters of blood.
Q. What does the EBOO /F filter out of the blood?
A. Physical debris left over from chronic infections and systemic inflammation.
- Endotoxins, which are fragments of pathogenic bacteria, fungus and mold infections that have been killed.
- Biofilm, which is a kind of sludge that many pathogenic microbes create to hide in… and where our immune cells can not penetrate.
- Debris from our own tissues that have been damaged from the infecting microbes and/or from powerful antimicrobial pharmaceutical drugs.
- Micro clots – microscopic blood clots that are resistant to the body’s own fibrinolytic processes.
Our kidneys and liver, which are extremely efficient in cleaning our blood from chemical toxins, are not good at cleaning the physical debris listed above.
Q. Why do some people do chelation before the EBOO /F and some don’t?
A. As mentioned, the human body is not good at filtering the blood to get rid of toxic debris from chronic infections (see answer above). But to leave these toxic materials in the blood can make a person quite sick, and unable to function.
The body deals with this by storing these toxins in our tissues, and out of circulation. Tissues such as fat can store an enormous amount of toxic substances, including drugs and medications.
Additionally, all of our tissues are constructed within a system of Extracellular Matrix which holds our cells together. This ExtraCellular Matrix is designed to store an enormous amount of toxins away from the blood.
Chelation therapy is designed to “shake loose” these toxins out of the tissues and back into the blood, where they can be successfully filtered and removed from your body.
Q. What kind of chelation is used?
A. Typically, IV chelation with a substance called EDTA is used. A great “side-benefit” derived from using chelation therapy is detoxification from Heavy Metals.
Q. How many EBOO /F treatments do I need?
A. Depends on what condition your body is dealing with.
As a reference, our patients who are suffering from chronic Lyme symptoms even after a successful Lyme “kill”, generally need 4-6 sessions, once per week. Their results are best if they have a chelation IV early in the week and their EBOO /F treatment 2-3 days later.
Q. Is this a cure?
A. In the USA, it is forbidden to say that a treatment is a “cure” for a condition if it has not been validated by the FDA. Thus we can not use the “cure” word no matter how effective the EBOO /F treatment is.
What we can say is: that the clinical results of using EBOO /F as a treatment for certain ailments is very effective compared to all other conventional treatments.
Q. Are both arms used during the EBOO /F treatment?
A. Yes. The blood comes out of one arm and the filtered blood is returned via the other arm.
Q. Can I still do EBOO /F if I’ve had breast cancer in the past?
Q. Do I need to do anything to prepare for the EBOO /F treatment?
A. No. However, it would be helpful if you have had a blood test for the presence of the enzyme G6PD.
Q. How will I feel after the EBOO /F treatment?
A. Most patients feel significantly better even during the treatment! Brain fog clears, energy comes back.
Q. Can I drive after the EBOO /F treatment?
Q. Any precautions I should know about?
A. If you have any kind of abnormal blood issues or bleeding issues, clotting, etc, we need to know about them.
Q. Can anybody do it?
A. Almost anybody. The main challenge is with people who have very poor veins, that are difficult to get good IV access.
Q. Can EBOO help with cholesterol?
A. Yes, EBOO /F removes LDL cholesterol and fat deposits from the circulatory system.
