High Dose Ozone Therapy in Pinellas County, FL
Ozone therapy is a form of detoxification which increases the amount of oxygen present in your blood in order to enable your immune response to fight disease. While the air we regularly breathe in consists of two oxygen atoms, ozone (a form of oxygen produced in the blood to stimulate our immune response) consists of three oxygen atoms, which, when introduced into the bloodstream, can more optimally stimulate the immune response of those suffering from poor immune function.
First not well understood and believed to carry some risks, ozone therapy has come a long way over the years and healthcare providers have developed a newer approach to ozone therapy called ozone high dose therapy (OHT) which increases the dosage of ozone infused into the blood in order to optimize your immune response.

High Dose Ozone Therapy Process
The regular process of ozone therapy consists of blood taken from your arm that is infused with ozone, which is shaken to ensure full infusion. The blood is then quickly re-inserted into your bloodstream.
High dose ozone therapy is not that much different—that is, it is a new approach to ozone therapy, not a different treatment altogether. In ozone high dose therapy, which is sometimes called ten pass ozone therapy, the same process is repeated up to 10 times in one setting, hence the "10 pass." Because of its increased dosage and potency, OHT is not something that can be simply "jumped into," but rather may be worked up to. The process takes up to 1 hour and is completed in your healthcare provider's office.
Because of the potency of the dosage of high dose ozone therapy, this approach is not the right option for all patients, particularly patients with veins that are too weak or too small to withstand considerable pressure exerted by 10 full passes. Your healthcare provider will determine whether high dose ozone therapy is a form of ozone treatment that is right for you in your current health state or whether working up to the dosage is something worth considering. While a "10 pass" application of ozone therapy might not be suited for all patients, a lower dosage may be explored.
Who Benefits from Ozone Therapy?
Ozone is naturally produced in our white blood cells to increase our immune response. However, this immune response is compromised in patients suffering from chronic illnesses. By optimizing the level of ozone in the blood, patients with a variety of chronic illnesses may be able to better manage their conditions. Chronic illnesses that have the potential to benefit from ozone therapy include:
- Heart disease
- Macular degeneration
- Parkinson's disease
- Lyme disease
- Chronic fatigue syndrome
