IV Ozone - Have you tried it?

    My doctor has wanted me to try a series of IV Ozone treatments at her office for a long time. I resisted initially - and now for well over a year.

    I knew instinctively that I needed to be stronger to consider it. I still am unsettled about my warmed blood being exposed to plastic tubing and mixed with heparin before being returned to me. I’m careful about exposures environmentally and pharmaceutically and this situation is no different to me.

    It is very clear to me that I need more oxygen delivered effectively at a cellular level. For seven months I fantasized about HBOT until I finally could access it - twice daily at 2ATA for 15 days. It helped, as I knew it would, just not enough and I cannot afford to continue.

    I have had or have babesiosis, bartonellosis, raised titer levels for several viruses (HHV-6, EBV, and Parvovirus amongst them), malaria and other fun. I also have been diagnosed with CIRS, but finally have a mold-free home. Heavy metals (lead in the lead) play some role too. My doctor seems convinced these treatments will boost my immunity at a key cellular level.

    In any event, I’m not asking anyone to weigh in on my own choice. I am very curious if you’d be willing to share your own experience with me. Will you kindly?

    - Have you done IV Ozone treatments?
    - What was your level of function like beforehand?
    - How many? How often? Over what amount of time?
    - Were they done solo or in combination with other IVs (and which, if so)?
    - What was your experience like during the treatment process?
    - How do you evaluate its effectiveness for you individually?

    Thank you, in advance!

    Interested in this as well. Anecdotally I’ve heard many patients and doctors sing the praises of ozone

    Also there are ways to cost effectively rent mHBOT for long term use

    The rental versions are nowhere approaching the effectiveness of hospital-grade HBOT chambers, unfortunately.

    @EsetIsadore I haven’t tried ozone but I’m interested in it as well. Two CFS drs told me they consider it one of the most effective treatments

    I’m currently trying to get my insurance to cover photopheresis, but if that doesn’t work out I will likely try several rounds of 10-pass ozone

    I'm going to tag @Learner1 who -- IIRC -- has done the 10-pass ozone thing.

    Best of luck !

    I too am considering it. My doctor recently acquired a machine after training with the best. I know 2 people who had great success with it at 2 other clinics, one with chronic RRBV an one with chronic Lyme and coinfections and both said it was the thing that helped them the most.

    I have tried other oxygen therapies including high dose vitamin C, ozone IVs, UVBI (UBI) and I regularly do HBOT. All have helped to a degree, but from what I understand, 10 pass is more intense and gets results quicker.

    With all oxygen modalities, its wise to keep an eye on antioxidant levels, as it can deplete them if too much oxygen is used over a period of time. Check glutathione, A, C, E, and alpha lipoic acid periodically.
