What is O3UV?
O3UV is the combination of ozone (O3) and UBI (UV). More specifically, it is the combination of MAHT and UBI. Basically, blood is withdrawn, diluted with saline, infused with ozone and then fed past the UV light and back into the patient.
Why combine ozone and UBI?
World-renown ozone trainer, clinician and author Frank Shallenberger pioneered this combination treatment at his clinic in Nevada. Dr. Shallenberger saw that ozone had some positive effects that UBI didn’t and vice-versa. He was a firm believer in both therapies and because they both are oxidative, germicidal and have almost no side effects, he began to run the ozone treated blood through the UBI machine before returning it to the patient. The effects were better than ever and the ozone/UBI treatment was born. Since that time there have been thousands of treatments performed with stunning results. Even more recently, we have come up with the term O3UV to refer to what we believe to be one of the better therapies available.
Can I use Ozone and UBI separately?
Absolutely. Both ozone and UBI are therapies that work very even when only one or the other is used. If you simply choose to purchase one machine or the other, you will not be disappointed, however, our recommendation is that you incorporate both into your practice.
Why not just use conventional treatments?
Although modern medicine has greatly benefited societies as a whole, there are also ways in which it has greatly hampered overall health. There is more to healing than just giving medicine or cutting things out. Often medicines just mask symptoms and do little to treat the root causes. O3UV works with the immune system stimulating the body to “heal itself” which is truly the ultimate and only real way to healing.
What is holistic vet medicine?
Holistic (a.k.a. Integrative or Complementary) Veterinary Medicine is the examination and diagnosis of an animal, considering all aspects of the animal’s life and employing all of the practitioner’s senses, as well as the combination of conventional and alternative (or complementary) modalities of treatment. When a holistic veterinarian sees a pet, besides giving it a comprehensive physical examination, he/she wants to find out all about its behaviors, distant medical and dietary history, and its environment including diet, emotional stresses, and other factors.
Is O3UV better suited for a large animal as opposed to smaller pets?
No. Ozone is equally effective for large or small animals.
How much blood do I have to draw?
The total amount of fluid treated depends upon the size of the animal, but a good rule of thumb is about 1.5ml of blood saline mix for every pound of body weight. The saline to blood ratio is 4:1 (four parts saline to one part blood). So for example, a 50 lb dog would have 15ml of blood drawn and mixed with 60mls of saline for a total of 75mls. ozone is then mixed at a 1:1 ratio with the amount of blood that was drawn.
Can we take human studies and apply them to animals?
The answer is yes. Most studies begin with animals and progress to the human level and it is no different with ozone and UBI. There are many studies which show the efficacy and safety for both man and animals.
How do I know how much treatment to give?
Of course you need to follow the protocols for any given therapy, but the number of therapy sessions required to heal a specific illness will vary depending on the animal, overall health, whether it is chronic or acute and other factors as well. Acute illnesses usually can be remedied within 1-3 treatments while chronic illnesses may take up to 10 – 12. You should see a response from most illnesses within 4-5 treatments. If no response is seen by that point, the clinician should evaluate whether O3UV will be effective method of treatment for the given animal/illness.
