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. Ozone kills viruses, bacteria, mold, and yeast on contact.

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 Ozone Direct IV?

The Ozone Direct IV method is where a syringe of ozone (20cc – 60cc) is very slowly injected into a vein using a very small (27g) butterfly needle to stimulates your immune system to increase in a balanced way: it signals your immune system to go after free radicals and toxins. It also increases energy production from the mitochondria (the energy producing organelles in our cells). The main concern when people see this method for the first time is: “I thought you were not supposed to put air in a vein?”
This is NOT air but 100% oxygen with a small percentage of O3. In order to create a gas embolism one would need to inject a much larger volume of gas over a very short period of time with a much larger needle.

It is impossible to create a gas embolism with a 27g needle and 60cc oxygen/ozone when administered over 5-10 minutes.

This method is key and essential for getting rid of chronic viral infections. To get rid of a viral infection completely one needs to do Ozone Direct IV treatment 3-4 times per week (12 treatments per month). There is no way to predict how many treatments one will need. It is somewhere between 40-200.
We encourage patients to include treatments like the Hyperbaric 10 Pass or Ozone Dialysis to speed up the process, but it is necessary to do a certain number of Ozone Direct IV treatments as well.

Who can benefit from Ozone Direct IV?

Anyone who is trying to get rid of a chronic or acute viral infection.

What are the health benefits of Ozone Direct IV?

  • Clear head
  • More energy
  • It is possible to seroconvert patients from positive antibodies, of say herpes virus, to negative
  • Decreases inflammation
  • Boosts the immune system
  • Kills viruses, bacteria, mold, yeast, and chelates heavy metals

How to prepare for Ozone Direct IV 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 Ozone Direct IV treatment?

In the beginning one can feel a chest tightness or even a coughing sensation. This usually happens about 5 minutes after the procedure is done. This is due to the ozone coming out of circulation when it hits the lungs. Ozone in the lungs can be irritating – chest tightness and/or coughing. It is however very safe and theses symptoms (if they happen at all) will pass within 10 minutes. We do have an oxygen mask nearby to use if this becomes an issue. Over time with repeated treatments the body gets used to this and you will no longer feel this sensation.

What is the difference between Ozone Direct IV and other ozone therapies?

In Ozone Direct IV treatment less ozone is delivered to the body than via Hyperbaric 10 Pass or Ozone Dialysis,however it is key and essential for getting rid of chronic viral infections such as HSV or HepC.

How do you feel after Ozone Direct IV?

Some report an increase in energy, a clearing of brain fog, and/or less inflammation in general.

What are the risks of Ozone Direct IV treatment?

Chest tightness or coughing. This is self limited and usually goes away after the first several treatments. It can irritate the veins causing a “thrombophlebitis”.

Can Ozone Direct IV treatment be combined with any other treatments to enhance results?

This is a great compliment to any treatment that is trying to reduce inflammation and /or boost the immune system.
