Ozone Therapy

Extracorporeal Blood Oxygenation and Ozonation (EBOO)

Extracorporeal Blood Oxygenation and Ozonation

LifeWorks Wellness Center is proud to announce that we have added a new treatment to our arsenal of therapies.  The Extracorporeal Blood Oxygenation and Ozonation Therapy, known as EBOO for short, is only available in 4 other clinics in the United States.  LifeWorks makes it 5!

What is EBOO?

EBOO is a dialysis machine that cleans the blood through a filter.  Blood proteins and fats easily pass through the filter but if they are loaded with toxins, pesticides, infections, and chemicals they get stopped by the filter.  Depending on your diet and lifestyle we all have these in our blood and should get rid of them.

The EBOO improves blood flow, cellular healing, and cellular oxygen utilization.  Clinical studies suggest that EBOO activates an immune response to infectious disease by stimulating it to kill viruses, fungi, and pathogenic bacteria.  It also improves the utilization of oxygen within the cells which reduces ischemia in cardiovascular diseases.  It can also release growth factors to help regenerate damaged joints and deteriorated discs.

Who Should Try EBOO?

EBOO is a great treatment for a variety of conditions, including:

  • Cardiovascular disease
  • Lyme disease
  • Mold toxicity
  • Chronic viral infections

If you have any of these conditions, then you are a good candidate to try the EBOO.   We recommend speaking with your practitioner to see if you should try the EBOO.  Please note that this service must be ordered by one of our practitioners and cannot be booked by a patient without a consultation.

Dr. Minkoff Explains EBOO

What Happens During an EBOO Treatment?

The EBOO treatment is similar to getting a regular IV except you will have blood drawn from one arm and the blood returned through the other arm to make a complete circle.

You’ll notice as the blood leaves one arm and flows through the tube into the machine, how dark your blood actually is.  In the machine, the blood is filtered and then oxygen and ozone are added to the blood.  When the blood flows through the tube out of the machine and is returned to the body via the other arm, you will notice how bright red the blood is as it has been oxygenated.  The blood is cycled like this for 45 minutes, so your blood gets a full cleaning.

Tell Me More About Ozone

If you haven’t heard of ozone being used in the medical field, it has actually been around for many years.  There are approximately 3000 published studies in the medical literature on ozone, its effectiveness, and its safety.  In the EBOO, ozone will kill viruses and other things in the blood that may not have been filtered out.

The key benefits of ozone therapy are:

  • Natural detoxifier
  • Natural antiviral, antibiotic, antifungal, and antiparasitic
  • Natural immune system booster
  • Modulates and reduces inflammation
  • Resets the mitochondria
  • Improves the condition of the blood

After Treatment

After the treatment, the filter will be full of toxic residue that was removed from the blood. The body does filter the blood during its passage through the liver and kidneys, but if they are backed up with too many chemicals, pesticides and toxins they can’t handle the excess load.

As a result, these toxins can end up in the brain, heart, and other areas and cause detrimental effects there.

So running the blood through the external filtration and then super-oxygenating it can cause a big boost to energy and well-being and reduce the total toxic burden on the body.

After someone completes the EBOO treatment, they often get an immediate feeling that something good just happened. They feel better, their breathing is easier and they may think more clearly.

Every patient starts with one treatment a week for three weeks and then goes on maintenance.

LifeWorks Wellness Center has been offering ozone therapy since 2010 and has treated thousands of patients with excellent results.

We are extremely excited to offer our patients the EBOO.

About Dr. Minkoff, Medical Director

Dr. David Minkoff graduated from the University of Wisconsin Medical School in 1974 and was elected to the “Phi Beta Kappa” of medical schools, the prestigious Alpha Omega Alpha Honors Medical Fraternity for very high academic achievement. He then completed both a Pediatric Residency and a Fellowship in Infectious Disease at the University of California at San Diego. He worked at the University of California and Children’s Hospitals in San Diego as an attending physician in infectious disease while conducting original research on Ribaviron, a broad spectrum anti-viral agent to fight disease. He also co-directed a neo-natal intensive care unit and worked in emergency medicine. In 1992, Dr. Minkoff’s wife Sue, a Registered Nurse, became interested in nutrition and health and began to go to lectures from some of the experts in the field. At the time, Dr. Minkoff was pretty fixed in his view of traditional medicine and it took a lot of convincing to get him to come to one of these lectures. After hearing Dr. Jeffrey Bland speak, Dr. Minkoff had a eureka moment and began pursuing the alternative field with a vengeance. Based on this new knowledge Dr. Minkoff and his wife set up a small clinic in 1997 to help some friends with their medical problems. What began as an experiment blossomed into Lifeworks Wellness Center, one of the most successful clinics for complementary medicine in the United States. In the process, he gained expertise in Biological medicine, integrative oncology, heavy metal detoxification, anti-aging medicine, hormone replacement therapy, functional medicine, energy medicine, neural and prolotherapy, homeopathy, and optimum nutrition. He studied under the masters in each of these disciplines until he became an expert in his own right. Dr. Minkoff is one of the most in-demand speakers in the field and wrote an Amazon best-selling book called The Search For The Perfect Protein. The demand for the products and protocols he discovered became a catalyst for founding BodyHealth.Com, a nutrition company that now manufactures and distributes cutting-edge nutritional solutions for the many health problems of today. Dr. Minkoff writes two free online newsletters, “The Optimum Health Report” and ”The BodyHealth Fitness Newsletter”, to help others learn about optimum health and fitness. Dr. Minkoff is an avid athlete himself and has completed 43 Ironman Triathlons. To keep his fitness maximal, he lives the lifestyle he teaches to others and tries to set an example for others, so they can enjoy a life free of pain and full of energy.
