EBO2 (Extracorporeal Blood Oxygenation and Ozonation)
Updated: Aug 28
Also known as ozone dialysis, EBO2 is the newest and most comprehensive protocol for administering ozone and purifying a patient’s blood that is available in a clinical setting today. It is the closest thing to an oil change for your body! EBO2 is an absolute breakthrough in the field of biotechnologies that is exploding in popularity all over the world within the functional and regenerative medicine community.
Similar to other ozone delivery methods, (such as “Ten Pass Ozone”), EBO2 is a protocol of infusing ozone into your blood outside the body and then infusing it back into the patient intravenously. However, unlike the Ten Pass Ozone method of taking out a small amount of blood a handful of times and exposing it to ozone alone, EBO2 pulls out and purifies the entire blood supply of the patient’s body by running it through a dialysis method (ergo, “ozone dialysis”, however please note: because we only add ozone gas to the blood and not large volumes of water as is done in traditional dialysis, ozone dialysis does not carry the risks of traditional dialysis)
Additionally, EBO2 combines ozonation with two other components that take the effectiveness to the next level.
The entire process is comprised of 3 main steps:
1. Comprehensive Filtration
3. Ultraviolet Blood Irradiation (UBI)

1. Comprehensive Filtration:
During the EBO2 protocol, the patient has tubes hooked up to each arm intravenously. Blood is pulled out of one arm with a very specific peristaltic pump and is first run through a special patented filtration system (called the Elisio 9H hemo dialyzer). This dialyzer filter has hollow fibers, which means that the filters themselves are made up of thousands of tiny straws which act as filtration membranes and the distinct material is polyethersulphone (PES) which is a class A resistant ozone material. Additionally, the Elisio Nepro 9H dialyzer that is used is BPA and DEHP free which differentiates it from other available dialysis filters on the market.
As the blood passes through the filter it removes”
· excess inflammatory proteins
· fats, cholesterol
· heavy metal toxins
· cellular waste
· senescent cells (old and malfunctioning cells)
Removing these particles in and of itself may help to reduce systemic inflammation in the patient that contributes to chronic disease and accelerated aging.
The filtered waste is collected in a receptacle and appears as a yellowish fluid at the bottom covered with a white foam on top. Seeing the waste collect is striking and satisfying to observe.
We believe this is an excellent step to “prepare the soil” immediately before a stem cell treatment to avoid inflammatory flare-ups and optimize outcomes.
The blood then passes through another chamber where it is saturated with ozone, which is part of the device’s gas exchange filter. There are volumes of scientific literature spanning over decades which demonstrate that ozone is a very potent oxidant, which has the ability to neutralize virtually any pathogen (virus, bacteria, fungi) that it comes in contact with.
After the ozone is diffused into the blood, it elicits its pathogen killing antiseptic effect almost immediately as it begins to dissipate within seconds. It then immediately forms secondary metabolites as byproducts called Ozonides. Ozonides consist of special types of reactive oxygen species (such as peroxides and aldehides) that travel through the blood and act as signaling molecules for the immune system and various other adaptive processes in the body when the blood is eventually reintroduced into the patient. These signaling molecules induce a mild amount of “hormetic” stress, which activates the body’s core adaptive response and fuels the communication network that regulates the balance between its immune and antioxidant systems.
This amplifies the body’s ability to produce many compounds it needs to fight off infections, neutralize remaining toxins and reduce excess inflammation. Ozonides also allow the body to produce a compound called 2,3-diphosphoglycerate (2,3-DPG) in red blood cells, which causes more oxygen to be released by hemoglobin. This super oxygenates the blood, which further enhances the cleansing process of the blood and allows all of its cells to function more efficiently.
3. Ultraviolet Blood Irradiation(UBI):
Following ozonation, the blood is exposed to a high powered ultraviolet light, a process known as Ultraviolet Blood Irradiation (UBI). Similar to ozone, ultraviolet light also acts as a powerful oxidant in the blood. The specific oxidative characteristic of Ultraviolet light has been shown to stimulate various types of immune cells and enhance their capacity to neutralize excess free roaming pathogens, toxins, excess blood lipids and metabolic waste products.
Also similar to ozone, UBI provides its own specific brief burst of oxidative stress that also stimulates a powerful adaptive response in the blood. This response triggers the up-regulation of many antioxidant defenses that lead to decreased systemic inflammation and increased tissue oxygenation. Historically UBI was actually a highly accepted, virtually side effect-free treatment for infections until the 1940s and 1950s when its popularity was completely eclipsed by the debut of penicillin antibiotics and the Salk polio vaccine. In fact, within certain scientific circles, UBI has often been referred to as “the cure that time forgot” because of its profound ability to successfully treat a wide variety of infections without any reports of the pathogens developing a resistance to the therapy over time, especially appealing in this day and age.
After the blood has been through the three steps of filtration, ozonation, and irritation with ultraviolet light, the newly purified blood runs into the tube connected to the other arm and is immediately infused back into the patient’s body. The difference in color is striking and satisfying to observe. The “old” oxygen-poor blood is very dark red, while the “new” oxygen and ozone-rich blood is very light red and the waste receptacle is often filled with a yellowish fluid covered by an abundance of white foam. Yuck!
EBO2-Yu is the Ultimate Oil Change for Your Blood
During an EBO2-Yu protocol, a full purification loop is made that re-circulates the entire volume of a patient’s blood (5-7 liters) over a period of 45 minutes. The entire procedure is 90 minutes long and can be performed immediately before a stem cell treatment or as a stand-alone maintenance treatment. EBO2-Yu is considered the world’s most advanced blood purification system that integrates the use of medical grade ozone. It is absolutely the “Ferrari” of all ozone devices.
The ability of this method to directly ozonate the person’s entire blood supply is what makes it far superior to any other delivery method for several reasons. It is well established that ozone in its original form has the ability to indiscriminately neutralize any pathogen (virus, bacteria, fungus) when it is able to make direct contact with it. But with most ozone therapies, including the more standard direct intravenous method used by most physicians, the ozone will dissipate within seconds only allowing it to directly disinfect a relatively small amount of blood close to the injection site. This leaves just the ozonides behind in the body, as well as other products that are produced that deliver all the therapeutic effects previously mentioned, including a milder antimicrobial effect than the ozone itself.
With EBO2-Yu, not only is the entire blood supply being saturated with ozonides but it’s all being purified by ozone and UV light as it all passes through the dialysis machine, not giving the ozone time to dissipate as its being constantly reapplied. This means that you can super oxygenate and sterilize the entire blood stream.
Although EBO2-Yu is a relatively new technology on the scene and has not yet been thoroughly studied, many of the world’s top experts in oxidative medicine believe that this device to be revolutionary. It is quite possible that this therapy, along with stem cell therapy and a few other breakthrough modalities are going to lead to a complete renaissance in the coming years and revolutionize the way we approach many conditions.
What Are The Potential Benefits of EBO2 Therapy?
Being the world’s most advanced medical ozone therapy, The EBO2-Yu protocol has many potential benefits including:
Reducing the pathogen load of patients’ blood (Bacteria, Viruses, Fungi)
Strengthening and modulating the immune system
Reducing oxidative stress
Down regulating inflammation
Removing inflammatory proteins (which can lead to autoimmune disorders)
Removing heavy metals, mold, and other toxins
Removing excess cholesterol and fat from the bloodstream

Reestablishing overall homeostasis in the body
At Docere Clinics, we offer EBO2-Yu to all of our patients who travel to us from all over the world immediately before they undergo stem cell therapy. This is because we believe this to be the best way to “prepare the terrain” for a successful stem cell treatment. We additionally offer EBO2-Yu to patients as part of an ongoing “be hard to kill”, health-optimization protocol in this day and age.
