Ozone Dialysis - an Amazing Innovation in Ozone Treatment Quintupling Ozone Delivery Gently
#111 The Rowen Report
We are happy to announce the availability of ozone dialysis in our office. It is commonly referred to as RHP (recirculatory hemoperfusion), or EBOO (extra corporeal blood ozonation/oxygenation). At this moment we have a medical article in peer review describing the process and our studies that the procedure delivers an astounding 500% more ozone to the patient than the popular “10 pass” procedure pioneered by Austrian physician Johann Lahodny.
The only downside we’ve seen is that the procedure requires two good veins, one on each arm. Blood is taken out of one vein via a peristaltic pump, which pumps the blood through a tri-cellulose dialysis membrane in one direction whilst a mixture of oxygen/ozone goes past the membrane in the other direction. The pump returns the blood to the opposite vein.
Typical “10 pass” high dose ozone can deliver 140,000 mcg of ozone to the patient. We have done careful measurements had found an uptake some 5 times higher at over 700,000 mcg. We did not expect this, but it supports the fine feedback we get from patients, who, having had other ozone treatments, generally prefer dialysis to all other ozone delivery methods. We are now teaching the method to doctors worldwide having perfected an inexpensive system. We have seen systems sold by purveyors at meetings for $30,000 and more. Our set up saves practicing ozone doctors most of that figure, and thereby saves their (and our) patients a ton of money. We encourage you to compare our costs for this therapy to nearby clinics in San Francisco, which may charge more than 300% of our fees, an amount worth even flying to save. A goal of our clinic is to make oxidation affordable. We have found that our fees for ozone and oxidation are generally even less than those we have trained.
Why is dialysis superior? This method is a passive uptake of ozone by blood. The blood soaks up what it wants for a specific volume. About half a patient’s blood volume is so exposed. But it is a continuous exposure during the whole treatment, unlike other methods which only expose blood to ozone during a portion of the treatment.
There are claims that the procedure also “filters” out toxins and impurities. Please be wary of these claims. The claims do look good, especially when you see some waste discharge exiting the dialysis unit. However, it is normal for a small blood protein called beta 2 microglobulin to pass through the dialysis membrane. My research indicates that it also passes naturally through your kidney glomeruli after which it gets resorbed by the renal proximal tubules. Hence, it appears your body doesn’t necessarily want to shed this protein. Yet, some providers of the treatment point to the discharge and state that it indicates “purification” of blood through the dialysis membrane. Since beta 2 microglobulin normally passes out of your kidney, only to be reabsorbed, and this process permits some of the protein to escape totally, I am hesitant to accept the claim of filtering out blood impurities at this time. I believe the discharge is a normal event of the dialysis process. Our experience strongly suggests that the fine results from ozone dialysis (RHP, EBOO) is from a significant “passive” ozonation of blood and NOT alleged filtration of “toxins/impurities”.
If you consider this method of ozone therapy, we also encourage you to shy away from synthetic polysulfone dialysis units, which might be used by some offices. We don’t think they have the best stability to ozone and especially compared to the tricellulose units we are using. These are naturally already oxidized compounds similar to wood fiber, and very highly resistant to break down by ozone.
To Your Excellent Health!

Can / do you use the Zotzman machine with modifications for ozone dialysis? (My sister, whom you trained, asks.)
