Ozone/Prolozone

Aging and the diseases of aging are caused primarily by decreased oxygen utilization.

​​What is Ozone therapy?

Oxygen, the most critical nutrient, is the key to the treatment and prevention of diseases.

 

Autohaemotherapy also known as Ozone Therapy utilizes human blood treated with a gaseous mixture of ozone to increase oxygen utilization in your body.

 

Prolozone is a form of Regenerative Injection Therapy that includes oxygen and nutrients to treat localized pain and injuries to encourage your body to repair and heal.

 

History of Ozone therapy:

  • In 1911, Dr. Noble Eberhart, used ozone successfully to treat tuberculosis, anemia, tinnitus (ringing in the ears), whooping cough, asthma, bronchitis, hay fever, insomnia, pneumonia, diabetes, gout and syphilis. He created the first university teaching center dedicated among other things to Ozone Therapy.

  • Then, in 1915, Dr. Wolf, chief surgeon of the medical services of the German army, extends its use for topical treatment of infected wounds, frozen foot, gangrene and decubitus ulcers.

  • In 1961 Dr. Hans Wolff developed the autohemotherapy techniques.

  • Today, ozone therapy is utilized to treat many diseases, including as anti-aging medicine.

How does Ozone therapy work?

Pain, low energy, shortness of breath, exercise intolerance, sensitivity to cold, decreased body temperature, and insomnia, to mention a few, are signs of low oxygen utilization in your tissues. As you can see on this graph, oxygen decreases dramatically with age. Ozone Therapy aids in oxygen utilization by stimulating tissues to produce more oxygen in all ages.
