Ozone gas is an O2 molecule with an extra oxygen attached, making it O3.This extra oxygen molecule is what makes ozone “supercharged” and gives it all the remarkable medical properties. Oxygen is colorless and odorless, while ozone is blue colored (this is what makes the sky blue). The use of ozone to treat various medical conditions was first developed in the 1950’s in Germany and has been gradually spreading in American over the last 25 years.
Ozone can be used to treat a variety of chronic diseases including cardiovascular disease, diabetes, chronic hepatitis, herpes, chronic fatigue states, Lyme disease, macular degeneration, colitis, Chrohn’s disease as well as the subject of this discussion, chronic musculo-skeletal pain syndromes such as tendonitis, bursitis, arthritis and other chronic conditions.
Most people think of ozone as a pollutant in the air we breath that is toxic and a byproduct of our internal combustion automobile engines. When inhaled, ozone is irritating to the airways due to its oxidizing effects. However, when injected into the body, ozone is remarkably effective at stimulating healing processes and relieving chronic pain.
Ozone, naturally in the body
Ozone is found naturally in the body. White blood cells make it as part of the immune response. Autotherapy, where one’s own blood is exposed to ozone then re-infused, is the method of administration for the degenerative diseases described above. Medical grade ozone when used per established medical guidelines has a safety record second to none.
Knee, Back, and Shoulder Pain Cured With Prolozone
Dr. Robert Rowen says: Last December, I had the privilege of traveling to India again. If you’ve read any of my previous stories about my journeys to this impoverished nation, you know some of the medical miracles I’ve seen there from the innovative treatments I brought them. This trip was no different. In fact, I saw some of the most devastating pain cases resolved in minutes.
I began to treat a few patients with ozone. What began as a slow trickle of patients quickly turned into a torrent, especially after what the staff saw exceeded their expectations.
We started in the orthopedic department. Our first patient was an older man with degenerated knees. In two minutes, he got off the table nearly free of pain after an injection of medical ozone. Several more patients with knee degeneration arrived. We saw the same results – in almost all knee cases – nearly total elimination of pain.
The second patient limped in with severe arthritis in his left hip. In minutes, he was at least 50% improved.
Shocked at what he was seeing, the orthopedic doctor brought us a woman with a frozen shoulder. It froze up soon after she had a chest infection the doctor had drained with a tube through her chest. The first part of the treatment was to inject the scar on her chest with a local anesthetic (neural therapy). Her shoulder freed up about 50%. Then we put ozone into her shoulder and her motion increased yet further.
severely prolapsed disc
On the third day, the doctors wheeled a young man (27) into the treatment room with a severely prolapsed disc. He could not stand upright, bent over at about 20°. His pain, radiating from his hip and down his leg, was so severe he needed assistance to rise out of the wheelchair. He could not lie flat on his abdomen. For this reason, he’s one of the few patients that the treatment itself was highly painful.
I’ve found that injecting Prolozone into the lumbar facet and sacroiliac joints helped most of my back patients with or without disc problems.
Unlike the knee cases, he was not better immediately after the injection. The knee cases were dramatically better nearly instantly. I told the doctor that this was one case I suspected would take at least 30 minutes. We were injecting the gas distant from the disc. It would take time for it to migrate to the affected area. So they sent the patient back to the ward.
Thirty minutes later, we checked up on him. He was standing up straight! By the end of the day, not only was he getting out of bed upright without assistance, he could bend over. By morning he told us the pain was 95% relieved! He was left with very limited pain in his back.
Ozone is wonderful, but believable
You might wonder how and why these results could be so dramatic, so fast, and last so long. The cause of pain is inflammation. Inflammation is a self-perpetuating cycle of damage. This limits oxygen, which further induces damage and limits the body’s ability to repair. So we administered a gas that’s 99% oxygen and 1% ozone. The instillation of oxygen provides instant energy production in the oxygen-starved cells. Ozone stimulates powerful chemical mediators of repair, regeneration, and modulation of inflammation.
