What you need to know about 10-pass ozone therapy before your appointment:
Hydration is Vital and Important
It is very important to be well-hydrated before receiving a 10-pass treatment. If you are not properly hydrated, blood will not flow easily through the catheter and tubing and may actually clot despite the use of heparin, a blood thinner. If you are not well hydrated you may not be able to achieve the full 10 passes of ozone. Please drink eight 16-ounce containers of water at room temperature over at least 4 hours prior to your 10-pass treatment. Additionally, make sure to drink plenty of water for several days before your treatment.
Avoid Caffeine drinks
Avoid caffeinated beverages the day before and the day of your treatment. This includes coffee, green and black tea, energy drinks and supplements with added caffeine. One potential side effect of caffeine is blood vessel constriction. Caffeine is okay again after you receive your 10-pass treatment.
Take 2 Bulouke capsules the night before your appointment and 2 capsules 4 hours before your 10-pass treatment. These will be provided for you by front desk reception.
How to schedule
Treatments should be scheduled at 11:00am or in the afternoon. This will give you time to drink water before coming in.
Before receiving a 10-pass treatment
Before doing the 10-pass, each patient must experience a single or double-pass treatment in our IV room.
What if I can’t accomplish 10 passes?
Every pass provides benefit, so treatments which are less than 10 passes will still be beneficial.
How long will it take?
Without complication, a 10-pass ozone treatment can take up to two hours. We will do everything possible to get you through 10 passes. If you have not had enough water, your treatment may be stopped before you reach a full 10-passes. If this occurs, you will only be charged for the portion of the treatment you received.
How often can I do 10-pass?
10-pass can be done once a week and no other ozone treatments should be given during that week.
