What is Ozone?

Ozone is a colorless gas made up of three atoms of oxygen (O3). We generate ozone by running an electrical current through medical grade oxygen.

What exactly is ozone therapy?

Dr. Julia Ward employs three different ozone therapies: Direct Intravenous Ozone Therapy, Ozone Dialysis and Hyperbaric 10 Pass Therapy. We detail each treatment separately but first, what exactly is ozone therapy? Ozone therapy takes medical-grade ozone, which is a highly reactive form of pure oxygen and creates a curative response in the body. The reactive properties of ozone stimulate the body to heal itself which is the cornerstone of regenerative medicine Dr. Julia Ward is offering. 

What is Hyperbaric 10 Pass Therapy?

Ten-Pass Hyperbaric Ozone was first developed in Austria and is a method of delivering ozone intravenously at levels much higher than regular IV ozone therapies. The Hyperbaric 10 Pass Therapy (HBO3) was invented by an Austrian GYN doctor, Dr. Johann Lahodny. In this procedure the patient has one IV through which 200cc of blood is pulled into a glass vial using a slight vacuum pressure. Then through a separate line ozone is added to this glass vial – about 200 – 500cc. The blood and ozone are mixed then the blood is allowed back through the IV to the patient. That is considered one “pass”. Typically the patient has 10 of these passes done in one sitting – usually taking about one hour. This was the gold standard for getting the most amount of ozone into the body at one time. Once the Ozone Dialysis was developed by Dr. Robert Rowen it was found to get 4-6 times the amount of ozone than the HBO3.

Who can benefit from Hyperbaric 10 Pass Therapy?

Hyperbaric 10 Pass Therapy is effective against many conditions including:

  • Lyme disease
  • Chronic inflammation and pain
  • Autoimmune disease
  • Mold and mycotoxin illness
  • Chronic Viruses
  • Chronic fatigue
  • Multiple sclerosis
  • Shingles
  • Fibromyalgia
  • Cardiovascular and circulatory disorders
  • Diabetes
  • Stroke
  • Hypertension
  • Rheumatoid arthritis
  • HIV
  • Hepatitis
  • Herpes
  • Chemical sensitivity
  • Macular degeneration
  • Chronic bladder conditions
  • Crohn’s disease
  • Colitis
  • Eczema and psoriasis
  • Lipid disorders

What are the health benefits of Hyperbaric 10 Pass Therapy?

In addition to treating the above conditions, it can also activate anti-aging pathways and provide a boost in athletic performance. Many of my patients report improved energy, cognitive function, and faster recovery times.

  • Boost immune system
  • Enhance athletic performance
  • Stimulate oxygen metabolism
  • Improve energy
  • Decrease chronic pain
  • Improve cognitive function
  • Decrease inflammation
  • Detoxify the body
  • Inactivate viruses, bacteria, yeast, parasites, fungi, and protozoa
  • Promote longevity
  • Improve circulation
  • Heal or recover faster from wounds, surgery, burns

How to prepare for Hyperbaric 10 Pass treatment?

  • Drink plenty of water the day prior to and the day of treatment
  • Eat something before coming into the office
  • Take vitamin C 5-6 times throughout the day
  • Take a good quality probiotic. I highly recommended to use Doctor’s Biome as this has been shown to help boost the immune system and further get rid of chronic viral infections (use code: WARD23 for a discount)
  • Lift weights as this will help increase vein size

What to expect during my Hyperbaric 10 Pass treatment?

You will arrive and be shown to our ozone treatment room.  You will then sit in a very comfortable recliner.  Blankets and pillows will be provided.  You will be asked to read over and sign the consent form.  Any questions about the procedure will be answered at this time.

Monitors are placed – blood pressure, ECG (3 lead), heart rate, breathing, and oxygen saturation.

The first IV will be placed in one arm after which it will be “heparin locked” and taped securely.  Then the second IV is placed in the opposite arm (also heparin locked).  The tubing for the procedure is then set up (takes about 5-10  minutes).  A tourniquet is then placed on one arm above the IV and the out going tube is attached to the IV.  The dialysis pump then starts to pump the blood through the system.  Once the blood reaches the UV radiation machine (HemaLumen) then the return flow is hooked up to the second IV.  We then monitor you during this hour long procedure.  The outflow blood is then stopped while the rest of the blood in the tubing is allowed to return completely.

A final set of vital signs are completed.

What is the difference between Hyperbaric 10 Pass therapy and other ozone therapies?

While we do offer this service we recommend doing the Ozone Dialysis over this procedure for a few reasons.  

  1. It is far easier for both you as the patient and me as the provider to do Ozone Dialysis vs. Hyperbaric 10 Pass therapy. With Hyperbaric 10 Pass therapy there is only one IV through which the blood is going back and forth from the patient to the glass jar.  
  2. during the vacuum phase the patient has a tourniquet on and has to squeeze a ball to pump the blood into the glass jar
  3. Clots can form both at the IV site and at the insertions point into the glass jar.  We do add heparin to the system but it can still happen.  This is not dangerous but it can slow down the process.
  4. With Ozone Dialysis once the two IVs are set there is no “work” on the patient’s part.  All the work is done by the dialysis pump – it flows in a continuous circle from one IV through the dialyzer, then the O3 is added, then it goes to the HemaLumen and then back into the second IV.
  5. With Ozone Dialysis you get 4-6 times more ozone mixed with the blood than you do with Hyperbaric 10 Pass therapy.
  6. Less heparin is used with Ozone Dialysis than with Hyperbaric 10 Pass therapy.

In a nutshell you get more ozone, less complications, and less work using the Ozone Dialysis rather than the Hyperbaric 10 Pass therapy.

How do you feel after Hyperbaric 10 Pass?

Typically people feel more energetic and more clear headed after the treatment. Occasionally some may feel a bit fatigued immediately following the treatment but then feel more energetic and clear headed the next day.

Can Hyperbaric 10 Pass treatment be combined with any other treatments to enhance results?

Yes! It is a great compliment to any treatment for cancer, Lyme, mold, or autoimmune disorders.
