What is Ozone therapy?
Ozone is a naturally occurring atmospheric gas. It's medical benefits have been used for hundreds of years in Germany and other European countries. l Ozone increases oxygen utilization in the body.

* Potentiates acupuncture, chiropractic and other modalities by bringing more needed oxygen to the body.
* Increases Interferon and Tumor Necrosis Factor (TNF)
* Speeds healing
* Helps the body detox
"All chronic pain, suffering and disease are caused by lack of oxygen at the cell level" Dr Arthur S. Guyton

" Ozone stimulates and stabilizes rather than suppressing biological functions.... Ozone itself does not produce the healing effect. Instead it induces the body's innate healing mechanisms to create healing effects. Thus, unlike medications and herbs it can be successfully used in essentially every medical condition regardless of the diagnosis." Dr Frank Shallenberger
