Exploring Ozone Therapy: Health Benefits & Healing Potential

| Modified on Apr 16, 2024

Ozone therapy, an innovative medical treatment utilizing the power of ozone (O3) gas, has emerged as a compelling approach to enhancing health and combating various ailments. This therapeutic method leverages ozone's unique properties to support the body's natural healing processes, offering a range of health benefits from improved oxygen utilization to immune system stimulation. Explore the multifaceted benefits of ozone therapy and understand why it's gaining traction in the wellness community.

The Science Behind Ozone Therapy

Ozone therapy involves administering ozone gas into the body to trigger beneficial health effects. Ozone, a molecule composed of three oxygen atoms, is a potent oxidant that, when used correctly, can foster a variety of therapeutic outcomes. The treatment aims to improve the body's intake and use of oxygen, enhance energy production in cells, and stimulate the immune response.

Key Health Benefits of Ozone Therapy

  1. Enhanced Oxygen Delivery: By improving the efficiency of oxygen transportation in the blood, ozone therapy can enhance cellular oxygenation, vital for optimal health and energy levels.
  2. Immune System Modulation: Ozone therapy has been shown to modulate the immune system, making it a valuable tool for both immune suppression and stimulation. This can help the body effectively combat infections, autoimmune diseases, and other immune-related conditions.
  3. Antimicrobial Effects: The antiviral, antibacterial, and antifungal properties of ozone make it an effective treatment for various infectious diseases, providing a natural alternative to conventional antibiotics.
  4. Anti-inflammatory Properties: Ozone therapy can reduce inflammation, a root cause of many chronic diseases. This can lead to pain relief and improved quality of life for individuals with inflammatory conditions.
  5. Detoxification Support: By stimulating the release of antioxidants and enhancing the detoxification pathways, ozone therapy can assist in the removal of toxins, contributing to overall health and wellness.
  6. Cardiovascular Health: Ozone therapy has been found to improve circulation, reduce the risk of clot formation, and enhance the overall health of the cardiovascular system.
  7. Wound Healing and Regeneration: The application of ozone therapy can accelerate the healing of wounds, burns, and ulcers by stimulating blood flow and enhancing the body's natural regeneration processes.

Safety and Considerations

While ozone therapy offers numerous health benefits, it's crucial to approach this treatment under the guidance of trained and experienced practitioners. The dosage, method of administration, and treatment protocol should be tailored to individual needs to ensure safety and effectiveness.


Ozone therapy stands out as a versatile and powerful treatment option in alternative and integrative medicine. With its ability to enhance oxygen delivery, modulate the immune system, and support detoxification, among other benefits, it offers a holistic approach to health and healing. As research continues to unfold, the potential applications and benefits of ozone therapy are likely to expand, making it an increasingly valuable tool in the pursuit of optimal health.

My uncle, a long time diabetic was to have amputated a foot due to gangrene but went in for ozone therapy and it cured him. He went to a naturopath, entering in a wheelchair and walking out after 3 months. This is in response to the question by T1D&Fading by Cleveland. Please consult an Ozone therapist. All the best! God bless you!

Malati - Thank you so much - I have found an ozone therapist about an hour away from my house and I am waiting for them to call back so that I can schedule a consultation. Hopefully I can afford it since they do not take insurance. I wish I could do my own ozone therapy at home!

Replied by ORH

T1D, ORH here and glad you learned of ozone and such. I have the same ozone generator system that are in most hospitals that the states will allow. My Tenn doctor cannot do ozone, but he can do hydrogen peroxide IV's and that will prevent foot amputations due to diabetes. The cost will be about $300. They wanted $45,000 for my new knee 10 years ago, but ozone shut that program down. Medical folks lie because ozone will regenerate your cartilage. The most sickening story is how ozone can cure an infected tooth instead of doing a root canal. Almost all end up with cancer in some part of your body. Lots of wimmins breast cancer is due to their infected teeth. Pull a tooth before you get a root canal. Our dentist is one of the best and his wife would not listen to him and got a root canal and died of breast cancer. He cries when he tells the story. He is not an iron ass like me. There was one woman dentist that used ozone in Tenn a few years ago. She is now gone. Tenn is a medical state that is corrupt due to $. My electrical cardiologist wants my natural doctor's records of 14 years. I just ignore them. This slick dude just wants to cause my natural doctor grief that I will not allow. My doctors tip toe around me as I usually know more than they about my problem. They don't like informed questions.

Inhaling Ozone has been demonized by the pharmaceutical industry for a good $$ reason. If people knew the spectacular health benefits of inhaling ozone it would put the drug companies out of business. Ozone does to your lungs what the sun does to your skin. Let your lungs slowly get used to breathing ozone and once it has adapted you can end up breathing it for hours. Please do not take my word for it. But do not be afraid of it: IT IS NOT A POISON, on the contrary... it will even cure cancer. I have 3 ozone machines in my home one for liquids and 2 for my health and the ill-health of spiders and bugs. And my wife and I breath it for at least 2-3 hours most days. I'm a 75 y/o retired MD and I've never felt so good since I found ozone.....for example, the 4 teeth a dentist insisted had to be extracted years ago are now PERFECTLY HEALTHY.

Replied by Joe

Zega, can you support your claims of harmlessly inhaling ozone with any evidence besides your own experience? I'm not asking to prove you wrong or to he spiteful, but asking for my own knowledge. I just got an ozone generator and I'm trying not to inhale any pure O3 based on the claims of most sources saying it's harmful for our lungs. I did accidentally inhale a huge whiff of it today while drinking ozonated water and it was extremely harsh. Hopefully you can provide some studies, anecdotal evidence or links. Thank you

Jaw Cavitation:

I had ozone too at @200.00 bucks a pop - helped the pain for 3 days and the pain returned. The ozone is supposed to kill the bacteria but the bacteria swim in your body and returns. - The dentist didn't tell me that part. What a racket.

HI U OLE PATOOTS DOIN, , , , , , , , , , , , ,

As usual, I am stirring the pot. Called one of the dentist in Tn that uses ozone in dentistry and learned of what is called the nose hose. They build a mouth piece to fit you and it is then hooked up to the ozone system via a nose hose. The ozone then enters this and goes into your gums to kill what pathogens you have there.

I then called the Ozone equipment manufacture and ordered a nose hose for my ozone system. I now have a way to safely get ozone into my lungs via this system which bubbles ozone through olive oil. Ozone then goes into your blood stream and all over your body.

As all know Bill Munro cured his two cancers by inhaling H2O2 and I will be doing Ozone which is much more effective. Glory hallelujah, home at last, home at last. I now think my cancer is on the way out.

Like the saying goes...... even a blind hog can find an acorn once in awhile.

If you think I'm an expert in ozone then you got the right string baby, but the wrong yoyo. I just reads a lot.

What I will tell you is that there are two ozone doctors that I follow and base most of the things I do to try to stay healthy. They are Dr's Frank Shallenberger and Robert Rowen. Both can be followed on the internet. How 'bout the terrible Ebola problem that was going to consume the world. Yep, it was Dr Rowan that solved that problem, but got no credit because he used Ozone. They don't want to talk about it because there is no money to be made.

John, I use lots of things via my lungs to get into my blood stream without going through my digestive tract. The three biggies are H202, Ozone and Glutathione. I have had ozone introduced into my blood, but stopped when I learned that anal insulfalation is almost as good and can be done by you at home and cost you almost nothing.

I will caution you change the olive oil out on a scheduled basis. Straight ozone can cause your lungs grief as you already know.

Boy, you are on the right trail. Follow me for entertainment, but follow the two doctors I mentioned to get the straight skinny.

HI U GOOD FOLKS DOIN,,,,,,, I always have a saga going on and that is because I got lots of pokers in the fire. I have a high dollar Ozone system that is normally used by professionals. We all know oxygen will deteriorated most anything. Well, ozone is 10 times worse.

The tubing on my system is breaking with a touch. It all has to be replaced. Thus, I called the company and they will sell me the tubing and I redo the entire system myself. I bought a standard system and they put these together every day of the year. So why can't they just send me these parts that they already do each day instead of me re-inventing the wheel.

They have dealt with me before and guess figured it was best to do what I say for a change. This is going to happen to every buyer they have and it is a market that happens every 5 years, so why fight it? These are Canadians and they have zero appreciation of down home Southern Redneck humor. Be damned if I would want to live that way. Make life fun. They are going to give me a quote and I figure they will win and I will redo my ozone tubing by my lonesome. Stuff happens.

Ozone for Gums and Teeth

HI U OLE PATOOTS DOIN, , , , , , , , , , ,

Spent the last week watching a dental presentation on the health of the mouth and how it effects your entire body. The integrative dentists are like integrative doctors that are light years ahead of his conventionally trained counter part.

I think we may be changing our present dentist to one that uses ozone in the treatment of your mouth. This audio is long but worth your time.


As most know, we have a medical ozone generator and can make ozonated water and ozonated olive oil to address our mouth health at home.

Every tooth in your head is associated with a meridian that connects to some other part of your body. Our present dentist says his wife had an infected tooth that connected with one of her breasts. He wanted her to have it extracted instead of a pathogen infected root canal. She insisted on the root canal and in a few years had breast cancer and died. That has put him on a guilt trip in which tears come to his eyes when he relates the story.

I am just now getting into this aspect of my health. I have searched the state of Tn and can only find two dentists that use ozone therapy in their practice. Ozone is the only way you can be assured that the pathogens are killed on a tooth repair or a root canal.

I now truly believe that our mouth health can cause problems in other parts of our body.

Your post comes as I have been contemplating more what to do with oral health lately.

One big problem with me and likely a small problem for most folks is acidosis. I go to extreme measures to keep alkalized because if I don't succeed, I take on radiation, particularly if I eat any dairy (which I rarely do or only small amounts). I know when I have failed in alkalizing as I get the bone infection raging again.

Anyway, in relation to teeth/gums/jawbones, It is also very important to swish multiminerals (I use bulk Leonardite major & trace minerals) as oral or even transdermal mineral supplementation is limited in efficacy in mineralizing the teeth.

To keep infection at bay I swish Colloidal Silver once daily. Have been thinking on a mouthful of water and inserting the ozone tube in there for bubbling and hoping on getting the O3 even further than the mouth and into the bloodstream. Will watch your posted link/video for more in this. Thanks a bunch from your buddy from Kentuck.

HI U BIRDS DOIN, , , , , , , , , , , , most folks are aware that the latest rage is using ozone to kill the bacteria in your gums and drilling prior to fillings. We even have a few dentists that are doing this in Tenn. and their license has not been revoked. Amazin. It is reported that by using ozone you can even avoid a root canal that will haunt you forever. It definitely will kill gingivitis for certain. I got a feeling that if you do this you will never need a dentist again. Would that be good or what?

As all know I's SJS and have just learned that an ozonated oil is now being marketed to use in oil pulling. Are you kidding me. I just happen to have a Ozone Generator and bubble the ozone through olive oil and breath it. Now I can use this used olive oil to clean up my trashy mouth. This way, I won't have to pick up road side cans to pay for a dentist visit.

Would like to respond to my girl friend detractor but won't, 'cause EC is PC, and I'd be on the outside lookin in.

Hi Robert Henry,

I'm on the hunt for a generator for insulfalation for my dog with IBS so I'm reading all the posts and your recent one on ozonated oil for oil pulling makes me wonder how the olive oil might do to combat skin problems such as allergies and mange in dogs. I sometimes put regular olive oil or hemp oil on my dog Bailey. I read recently that some of the higher end groomers use tiny bubbles through a certain type of ozone generator on their skin while bathing and it clears up after 1 or 2 applications. I haven't found one near me yet that does it so I'm trying to find an all inclusive machine but not quite as expensive as yours.

Ozone for Jawbone Infection

Posted by Llluke (Dundee, Oregon) on 12/01/2015

In May 2015 I experienced my first ozone injection for a major toothache and confirmed infection in my jawbone.

I received four treatments total in four weeks. During each treatment, multiple small dose injections were given under the dermal layer, facially around my nasal area, temples, inside my mouth at the tooth, across my forehead, and along my neckline.

The toothache was unbearably painful. Ozone injection was my ND's response to my request for alternative treatment for the dentist's prescribed antibiotic regimen. The dentist also said he would pull my tooth, and I wished to save it, if possible.

After one week, the pain was gone. Multiple difficulties began to resolve after the second and third treatments, such as acne and sinus infection I'd battled for many years unsuccessfully.

I cannot give information on the dosage, but each treatment was given from one small syringe. A doctor must be trained and certified after having obtained a medical practitioner's license.

HI U LUKE, , , , , , , , , , , , , , good to hear that the word about ozone is getting out. For things like teeth, gums and root infections, then you need a professional. I also have to used them for my knee and back injections. Ozone will regenerate joint cartilage so you don't need your knee or hip replaced. I know that personally.

I have a Longivity Medical Ozone Generator that I do Ozonated water, Ear Insufflations, Anal Insufflations, and Transdermally using an Ozone Suit in a FIR Sauna, bagging, cupping and breathing via a virgin olive oil bubbler. Ozone is a miraculous compound.

You are lucky you live in a state that allows the use of Ozone. It is too cheap and too effective for the medical establishment in most states.

HI U OLE PATOOTS, ORH here, our buddy Art, has sent us all to school. He has it down pat and that's good. You don't have to think too much. He is disciplined and I am not, and don't claim to be. I just put a thought in your head and you take it where you want. I have a Medical Ozone Generator that I use . It is expensive to buy, but not to use. The big deal is to get ozone into your blood. I do that by rectal insufflation. I just blow ozone up my fanny. There is another way and that is to use ozone rectum suppositories and achieve the same effect. I have these, but have never done that. I just want to plant a seed and you take it where you want. If you have gut issues like candida and such, then you may want to research and tell us how it worked. I'll probably do this because it will give me material for ATS. That's just the way I ams.

You do not need fancy equipment to use ozone. Period. I have 7 different ozone generators but that's only because those with variable outputs are so expensive. I use a $6 US refrigerator ozone generator to ozonate water. Altogether, my 7 generators - including an industrial, large space-shocking generator - cost me less than $500 US. My most recent purchase was the most expensive and it was about $100 US. It's designed for water and oil - I.e. it has a pump and hose for concentrating output through an airstone. I got it for ozonating oil and didn't actually need it, even for that.

People say there are no studies regarding ozone but that is absolute nonsense as there are actually thousands of studies. Just not in the US. Granted, very few are about its efficacy but that's because, outside the US, the efficacy of ozone is VERY well known so, most studies are about modes of application, specific conditions and dosage levels and the actual dosage levels have been seen to not matter much, if at all, in several instances though I don't think that was a formal study but, rather, a study done within a single medical establishment overseas.

Basically, I just want to say is "use your head", think your own thoughts on the matter and use it or not, as you choose.

It's not fancy, one doesn't need fancy equipment to generate it and it's not dangerous. To my knowledge, the only mishap with ozone was with regard to the needle in a saline setup and had nothing to do with the ozone.

Ozone is a gas and when people talk about injecting it, they are NOT talking about injecting gas into a vein but, rather, ozonated SALINE solution. Do NOT inject gas intravenously.

Insufflation is NOT an injection of gas into a vein. Do your homework or find a practitioner.

One final note you can include or exclude: Many powerful Americans receive - and HAVE received, for DECADES - ozone therapy overseas while, at the same time, legislating, promoting, protecting and encouraging the deadly, money-making industry of toxic "US medicine" that kills millions of people every year.

The fancy equipment and plethora of "precautions" you see in the US regarding ozone are only there to get information past American censorship and into the hands of the people.

Aside from the small, "refrigerator" ones I use in a plastic bag to "decontaminate" small things (back when they were 6 bucks a piece) all of mine are ForeverOzone, going back to about 2012. I have a 3000 & a 30,000 barebones. a 30,000 with a case and fan and a 500mg water/oil ozonator that I use to fill my shed with ozone through a little hole so wasps don't nest there or, at least, don't stay in there. I also have an even older industrial specimen that still works but I don't have much use for it these days nor do I recall who built it.

I like FO because they're serious, very well made, very reasonably priced for that quality AND you can buy parts for them.

I'm curious how much ozonated water you drink. I would also like to try a bath with ozonated water added.

HI U OLE GEEZERS DOIN, , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , ,

Just got in from Atlanta where I got a shot of Ozone in my back to hopefully reduce my pain. Got 3 more shots scheduled. I know I do things that others can't afford and I don't apologize. Some think you have to dig dandelion weeds least you are not a 'Merican. I have paid my bill to nature and don't have a guilty feeling for being able to afford things that others can't.

My Granddad was a Mississippi share cropper who plowed mules 12 hours a day. I have a Ch E degree from Ga Tech so the American Dream was available in my time and I went after it.

I have learned of a test that Dr Frank Shallenberger developed that will tell you where you are in your health. I was ahead in the paper industry because I tested more than other companies and knew where the problems were. He does the same except this is how your body is functioning. We go there in January for this test. I will use this also to address my blood cancer.

Timh, I just got in from Atlanta after getting my third Ozone shot for my back. I am almost pain free and still have two more shots scheduled. What is so sad is this is about $700 out of my pocket because Ozone is not covered by Medicare or my health insurance. I go to a spine specialist in a few weeks and that is covered. I just want him to analyze my problem, but no surgery. I do not have to pay for his service. If I had let this spine doctor operate, with the cost in the hundred of thousands, then they would pay for that also.

HI U SCOTT, , , , , , , , , haven't you asked this before?

I use Progressive Medical Center in Dunwoody. The two doctors I would recommend are Dr Matalone, DO, or Dr Siciliano, MD.

Dr Matalone is a charter member of Dr Shallenbergers first class taught the use of Ozone. Dr Siciliano also attended his workshop, but is the new boy on the block. His advantage is that he was a chiropractor prior to getting his MD, thus is more knowledgeable about joints, etc. Dr Matalone as been around the watermelon and probably understands the body better.

Thus, it depends what your problem is. Ozone from them avoided my knee replacement. But as I recently learned Ozone can only do so much. It can't move your spine off your sciatic nerve. It took 5 ozone shots and another MRI to convince me. The T 12 vertebrae crushed in 2/14 finally collapsed about 6 months ago. Now I am back to my spine doctor and PT. He tells me that at 79 I will have to do PT for the rest of my life.

Since I's a story teller, let me spin another yarn. I just got in from having my Dermatologist remove a cancer on my forehead the size of a large grape. I made money because now I don't have to spend 10 grand for a face lift. The cut he made was not the Grand Cannon, but close. The nurse had to have help pulling my facial skin together to sew it. I now look like Tom Cruise.

I explained to the doctor that I had read that folks that have Leukemia will get lots of skin cancers. He said that is the gospel. I have been treating mine alone for about 5 years. Guess I need to purchase more Curaderm for the skin problems.

Told all the EC folks to follow my saga and learn from all my mistakes. Here is Progressive's site.

HI U GOOD PEOPLE DOIN, , , , , , , , , , , , the topic is ozone but we have to go half-way round the watermelon to get there. This story began 7 years ago when my right knee started giving me pain and I went up our home stairs like an infant. First, went to an Ortho and he gave me a shot of cortisone, which lasted two weeks. I then learned of Prolotheraphy , where the MD gives you numerous shots of Dextrose in your ligaments and in your bones. You just think you have known pain. I had 5 treatments to no avail. A few years later, I read about Prolozone and went to an Ortho who is supposed to be the best in Tenn. He said my knee was good, just arthritic, and the only thing he could do was another cortisone shot. He could not do an ozone shot least he lose his Tenn medical license.

I then went to Atlanta and got one shot of Ozone and that game was over. I have been back for shots in my knee for two years not because I needed relief, but because I did not want that pain again.

I stopped today to get another knee shot on the way back from the beach to the Tenn hills . I made an appointment to get them to start on my back in two weeks. In Feb. I fell while moving firewood and crushed my T 12 Vertebrae. It healed, but I still have pain and have been treating it with a liniment and DMSO. It makes the pain tolerable, but why suffer if Ozone can solve the problem.

I write this because there are only 16 states that allow Ozone to be used as a medical treatment. It is too cheap and too effective for the Allopathic doctors to allow.

ATS..... an ATS is a story that is 96.4% true because 3.6% is reserved for embellishment. Ya'll behave for a change.

This recalls an experience I once had trekking the Matanuska Glacier in Alaska; all that "blue ice" is captured Ozone and you can definitely smell it during the summer melting months. Check Cancer demographics in North America, and Alaska is very much the least per capita despite limited food supply and many indoor hrs spent thru the cold, dark winters.

The trick is getting the right amounts of ozone in the body.

Thanks so much for this info as I am suffering from bone & joint infections. My elbows and right knee have been the worst but the entire spine seems to be problematic (but not painful) as Fungal Spores and Mycoplasma infections are released to travel all over the body. Regular Zapping directly over the spine keeps the worst away but more will be needed. Yesterday I used the FIR Belt directly over the spine during footspa w/ good results as I got dizzy afterwards from die-off. My elbows, after almost 2 yrs problematic and using Magnets, Zapping, and Vaporub, seems no better until I recently dipped them daily in the mineral footbath w/ added Oxygen (Sodium Percarbonate) and Colloidal Silver. Now I need that same results to my knee & spine. Unable to receive the professional help I need, would you think maybe wrapping the Knee in a warm wet cloth w/ added Hydrogen Peroxide and Colloidal Silver, then rap that w/ Teflon, puncture a small hole for the insertion of the Ozone tubing would prove effective??

I am first going after my parasites and getting my liver in top shape. Will keep all informed as I go along. I spent a life time solving stinking pulp mill problems. Now I have a challenge of a life time. This one is for keeps. I have enough faith in my judgement that I will listen to smart folks and make the decisions.

Hi Robert:

Glad to hear that you are making progress in this most recent battle.

Want to thank you for pointing me to this web site.

Have done a lot of reading since we talked at the class reunion in our home town. Have started the wife on ACV and looking at other things to try to get a handle on the ITP.

Prayer and blessing Lester.

PS may see some of your old pulp mill friends headed to McGeehe to a retirement dinner this afternoon.

HI U OLE PATOOTS DOIN, , , , , , , , , , Just got my second shot of Ozone in my back and things appear to be better. This Atlanta group is growing by leaps and bounds. They are opening two new centers in Greater Atlanta and centers in Austin and St Antonio, Tx.

They are so successful using thousands of year old medicine like acupuncture, etc. that I fear that BIG BROTHER will get them. They are not into pills.

I cannot get ozone treatments in Tenn because it is too cheap and too effective. Any Tenn doctor that uses Ozone will be disbarred. How does that ditty go ????? Oh yeah, "FIRST DO NO HARM".

HI U OLE PATOOTS DOIN, , , , , , , , ,

Got my 4th ozone back shot in Atlanta today and while waiting to pay my bill. There was a little ole lady that everyone that came by was hugging and carrying on like crazy. When things settled down I asked her if this was about Prolozone. She told me she was in her 80's and had not been able to walk without assistance or pain for several years. After 6 Ozone shots she was now walking alone and without pain.

What makes me want to cry is this procedure can only be done in 16 states because it is not approved by the medical boards. One shot cost's $175 and is not covered by insurance. They had rather you pay hundred of thousands on operations which usually leaves you disabled. We are one sick country.

Won't keep beating this dead horse, but a review of Prolozone should be done if you are in joint pain.

HI U OLE PATOOTS DOIN, , , , , , , , , , , , , the subject tonight is , for lack of a better word, RED ASSIN.

My Ozone generator uses medical oxygen to make ozone that I use it in many procedures to treat my blood cancer. I took my O2 tank today to have it filled by my regular folks. They can't get there from here because they no longer fill O2 cylinders , they get them ready charged and just swap out . My cylinder is from Canada and does not match up with U. S. connections. I am now up a polluted estuary without feasible means of locomotion. In other words , "up shit creek without a paddle".

I then went to the largest O2 bottler in East Tn and they said that the FDA would not allow them to stop the line to fill a off brand tank.

I stayed on the internet and phone for several hours and finally found a firm that will try to convert my connections such that I can uses the US standard O2 cylinders.

I really don't think this stress has helped me. What is so amazing to me is that the people I talked to... just sluffed it off. That's just the way the government is now. You just got to deal with it. Sick, sick, sick.

Guess I won't get much sympathy because I self medicate as do 90% of the folks reading this post. I don't need to be trying to cure my health problems, I need to be in line with all the low information voters to get the government free stuff.

Is life interesting or what? ===ORH===

What was it that crazy wise guy Jim Morrison said "go round the march". That is, why can't one simply use "industrial" grade oxygen (as opposed to medical grade) for the welding shop on the farm. I have also seen amateur folks using cheap oxygen generators for feeding ozone on YouTube.

Also, the corona discharge ozone purity problem, that is the production of nitric oxides, is not so with UV Ozone. UV Ozone does require more energy for production and has a shorter life-span, but it is much cleaner.

HI U OLD PATOOTS DOIN, , , , , , , , , got a new toy as a result of Timh and what Dr Shallenberger says about these devices. I am sold on the fact that we live on oxygen and like Bill Munro, it can cure lots of ails. I have an ozone generator in which I keep my blood saturated with oxygen, but according to Dr Shallenberger, you only half way home. You have to get this oxygen into your cells. He says that a pulsed magnetic device will do just that.

I bought one and have used it for a week on my crushed T 12 vertebrae and on my brain to sleep. Can't speak for the sleep yet, but it is amazing what it does for pain. It has 6 different programs depending on what you want to do. My tractor driver is also using it under her pillow to get in to a relaxed sleep.

My local integrative doctor uses Glutathione to treat dementia patients. It is not covered by insurance and is $ 85 a pop into your veins. The folks in Atlanta introduced me to a cheaper way and that is thru a nebulizer via your lungs. I can use this daily for several months for the price of a couple of IV's. The problem is that our great Gov is now regulating the compounding pharmacies out of business. The two I was using are now out of the business. I found one in Knoxville who spent the money to meet their regulations. We visited them today. I am not into dementia yet, but I don't function like a 18 year old anymore either.

Head back to the farm at daylight to gather veggies. Owe a friend two watermelons as a result of him giving us two messes of Crappie this spring. Dang, who says you need money. Bartering has always worked. You scratch my back and I'll scratch yours.

HI U STEVE, , , , , , , boy you just down the road from Dr Shallenberger in Carson City. I'd go see that guy. He's the best.

What I bought was the FlexPulse that was designed in Germany and made somers in Europe.

If interested then, use Dr Shellenbergers name and get a discount. It is not cheap, but at 79, who is counting.

Got a good story to tell. In a car accident in '98 following the Arkansas- Tenn foot ball game. A drunk came across 4 lanes and crashed us into the concrete dividing barrier. Messed up my shoulder and knocked out the lens in my left eye. Other than that, there was no problem.

I went to a orthopecic surgeon who graduated from Dartmouth. He thought that when he went to the bathroom he did not have to turn on the fan, nor strike a match. All he did was for naught and after I read about magnets I bought a system from Sears Robuck.

The last time I saw him was when he asked how I was doing. I told him that I was much better after I started using the Sears magnetics. He said he did not need to see me again. Sounds right to me. Most MD's die from drowning after they fall in love with their image in the pool.

HI U OLE PATOOTS DOIN, , , , , , , , , , , , ,

Stopped in Atlanta to get a Prolozone shot for my back on the way to the Gulf. Following my Ozone shot my doctor recommended that I do PEMF to enhance the shot. I have a flex pulse devise, but nothing to compare to what I went though. It came through my T 12 vertebrae, but my stomach was jumping an inch with each pulse. It was unreal.

Good people there are many things that the natural medicals have that... you have no clue. I think EC is the cat's meow, but the natural folks are way ahead of us by thousands of years with acupuncture and many other things.

Just because your regular doctor has no clue does not mean that the natural folks can not help with your ails. All our bright folks on this site help, but they are limited. I listen to them but I know the natural doctors can have tests run that EC folks cannot.

My message is to use EC and if it solves your problem then....... glory. If not , then go through a naturopath in your area.

HI U OLE PATOOTS, , , , , , , , right now I'm low. My lower back has been killing me since my last Ozone shot two weeks ago. Something happened, but I have no clue.

I had an MRI done, but the spine doctor can't see me for another month. AYSM. In everyones life , a little rain must fall. I'm in a monsoon .

It appears that old age is finally turning this wild and strange guy into an old, old man. Before my fall, I was full of piss and vinegar but pain will change your personality 180.

I think about all the stuff that Timh has gone through at his young age. He does not have hoof and mouth disease like I'm getting. He is still full of P&V. I envy him.

Something has happened to me and I'll get to the bottom of it and write ATS. In the meantime, I'm headed back to Atlanta to get another shot of Ozone this Monday.

Suggest all stuff your mattress with what extra cash you have. The Davos attendees have a master plan for all us ignorant serfs and it will not be fun. They update it yearly. Life is just before getting very interesting.

How is your sleeping posture? Do you sleep with a magnet pad at the location of injury? Can a Chiro help? Once a day lay flat of your posterior on the house floor for a few minutes then roll over flat of your anterior.

Are your bone minerals like Calcium/Magnesium, Boron, Manganese, and Strontium up to par? Are you free of heavey metals, surely you are by all the I.V. EDTA treatments you've had. Maybe you didn't replace enough minerals during or after the EDTA?

It appears the ozone is reacting to something that oxygen cannot remove. I am still removing heavy metals from my bones and must also take minerals in a hot bath to fill the empty spaces. I have all these M in bulk powder form and will gladly ship you a package containing each for a hot bath. During the bath take 2-3 capsules of Sarsaparilla herb to remove any radiation.

As for pain & inflammation, get the strongest magnet you can lay your hands on for the injured area. The strong magnet will also kill pathogens.

As for the general condition of blood cancer and now the spine problem of pain, there is one powerful herb for both --Hemp/CBD Oil. Please go to Amazon.com and purchase at least a 4oz bottle which should contain about 500mg CBD and see if you don't have a positive response.

Don't recall if I have your address but you can e-mail me and I will send you the minerals and herb, plus the other remedies your doing, and maybe you be well enough to make the garden come spring.

KATHY,,,,,,,, you are my neighbor just up the Tn River from me. The Prolotherapy and Prolozone are two different. In Prolotherapy the doctor uses a dextrose syringe to damage your ligaments and cartilage. Your immune system then comes to repair the damage. It is extremely painful. I had five shots to my knee with no results. My Tractor Driver had one to her shoulder with great results. The pain was so intense for her that she passed out and stop breathing. Scared my mule. Prolozone is where ozone is injected into a joint cavity and there is no pain. I had one shot in my knee and was good to go. I had several in my lumbar region and got no relief. The Tn Medical Board allows Prolotherapy but not Prolozone . They have taken at least one doctor's license that I am aware of. There are several dentist using ozone in lieu of root canals. If you are interested in Prolozone, I'm afraid you will have to go to Atlanta, like I did. Wish you well.


Ozone Therapy Video

Posted by Robert Henry (Ten Mile, Tn) on 02/24/2015

HI U GOOD PEOPLE, , , , , , , , , I encourage you to watch this video, "Break out", from this website.


As Timh will attest I have lots of health issues, mostly of my own doing. I have lots of tools and knowledge to get and stay healthy , but somewhere along this trail comes discipline. That, I am lacking.

What Dr Shallenberger is telling us it that we must get Oxygen into our cells and not just into our blood stream. In this video he tells us how to do that.

Guess what , I just happen to have a medical grade Ozone Generator and a FIR sauna. I understand how to use Baking Soda to get my body alkaline. I am now committed to solving my health problems, because I want to be around for another 14 years just to irritate the PC medical folks on this site.

The surprising thing about this revelation is that our favorite guy, Bill Munro, knew this some 20 +years ago. As Dr Shallenberger says in his video that Ozone turns into Hydrogen Peroxide upon entering your body. Thats what Bill did. The SC MD that came on line a few days ago says this it's not natural and dangerous. I responded, but the boss thought otherwise. Times are hard for this ole boy.

How can a Redneck from Michigan know this? He read an oxygen book at age 64 and lived to be 89.

What I now understand is that oxygen in your cells is the key to a long and disease free life. What we have to do is figure out how to do this.

My daughter works with a nice family man who was diagnosed with cancer in his neck. He went throught chemo and radiation and seemed to be doing well, but has recently learned the cancer has come back and is now in his brain and liver. Do you have a recommendation for a good holistic doctor for this? We are trying to compile some resources for him and his wife since it is difficult to think clearly under such circumstances. Any suggestions would be welcomed. Thank you.

HI U Rsw, , , , , , , , first you must understand that I am just smart enough to be dangerous.

Here is what is known...... cancer can't live in oxygen nor an alkaline environment. Stress helps the buggers but I have no clue how to address that because I'm a get on or get off or get your ass out to the way kind of guy. Some call that stress personified...... A type A personality.

To get alkaline , do a tsp of baking soda at daybreak and dark. Do Ole Bill Munro's H2O2 up to 8x a day over time. Drink lots of water. Go to the Cancer Tutor website , read and chose a protocol that you feel comfortable with. I have lots of health toys that cost lots of money. This includes an alkaline ionizer, a FIR Sauna, an Ozone Generator, a GB 4000 plasma Rife Machine and work my ass off in our garden raising healthy vegetables.

I do have a doctor that can measure my progress with a DNA test. I was one of the best in the paper industry because I tested ever stage in the process. Few people did that and had no clue when nor where things went array. There should be a way to do that with your body.

For instance, it only takes pennies to test your pH but how many people do that? pH is a big deal. Do you look at your stool with every bowel movement? Hell, that's fundamental to your health. Do you look at your tongue? Your eyes? Do your nails have fungus or ridges?

Rsw, if I had the answers then I would not be wearing Walmart blue jeans. One other thing, I address is my immune system and take Transfer Point's Beta1,3D Glucan.

Do magnesium transdermally daily, do skin brushing daily , do a rebounder daily, do coffee emma's 1X a week. Do a niacin flush 3x a week. Sweat.

The list is endless, but read and when you get tired of reading , then read some more.

There are lots of folks that come to this site and expect a simple solution. I think if you ask the best posters here they will tell you that there is no short cut. Ask Ted, Bill, Dave, Momma or Timh and they will tell you that good health is not easy.

I thank you for considering that I could help. I have tried, but no one except the Lone Ranger has a silver bullet.

In short, If I cannot cure my cancer, then I'm headed to either Dr Frank Shallenberger or Dr Robert Rowen. They are the brightest I know of.

Many thanks for your comprehensive response. I appreciate your time and sharing of your knowledge. I will pass the information along, and also keep it in mind if needed for future reference. I have been trying to compile suggestions from people over the years, and I see some survivors of what appeared to be dire circumstances with cancer also used the Beta Glucan, paw paw and IP6, and some used LDN or OGF from Germany, among other protocols.

I wish you many happy and healthy years ahead to be able to steer us down the road with our many questions. We all appreciate and take your comments to heart, and many of us are enjoying your advice on gardening. I used the hydrogen peroxide and water spray just the other day on my tomatoe stems.(I have 2 tomatoe plants, 6 kale, a few beans and some various herbs in a 3'X6' raised bed) I like the pictures you post because I can understand what you are saying better when I see a picture since I'm not familiar with a lot of gardening terms. Thank you for all you do for the Earth Clinic family.

Transdermal Ozone Sauna Therapy

Posted by Robert Henry (Ten Mile, Tn. ) on 07/03/2015

HI U OLE PATOOTS DOIN.......just finished reading the medical news letter from my idol, Dr Shallenberger. Guess what he says is the latest cat's meow?

It is using Ozone transdermally while in a sauna. Why is this so great? Well, it puts peroxides into your blood. Guess what our ole Redneck buddy, Bill Munro, did 20+ years ago. Yep, he inhaled hydrogen peroxide into his lungs which then went into his blood and cured his two cancers.

Not putting Dr Shallenberger down, because I try to do his protocol 3X a week. Our E C mentor did his thing 8x a day and lived to be 89. I got 10 years to go.

Bill Munro, got this idea by reading and thinking. I suggest most of you do the same. Read and when you get tired, read some more.

Triple Threat Ozone Therapy

Posted by Robert Henry (Ten Mile , Tn) on 03/08/2017

HI U OLE PATOOTS DOIN,,,,,,,,,, yep, it's me again and I got sumpin wild and strange that I need help on. Dr. Shallenberger was the MD that came up with the proposition of doing a sauna while surrounding yourself with Ozone. It's transdermal thing and I do it all the time. He's great MD, but like all, he has $ in his eyes. I short cut costs and used my FIR Sauna and a suit that I can plug in my Ozone. He promotes a $ 5,000 unit. Now he has come up with a new system that you can do all the above and breathe Oxygen at the same time, which he calls the Tipple Threat. The problem is that the unit cost about $8,000 dollars. That's a lot of road side cans to pick up.

He says a regular Oxygen nasal system will not work, but I am trying to figure out how to use the EWOT system that Jocks use. Can any of you shed any light on this subject. I want the EWOT system to use medical oxygen that can be metered into the EWOT bag and mask system. I think this system has unlimited potential, but us Rednecks can not afford what is the going price.

Got too many smart folks on this site that we can't figure this out. Put on your thinking caps and help me solve this problem. If you do this, then I will dance at your next wedding and you all know that I's a boogie guy. You have seen me and my Tractor Driver in action.

HI U GOOD PEOPLE DOIN,,,,,,,,,, well, I tried Dr Shallenberger's Triple Threat and survived with blood shot eyes. Got up early so I could do this. First, I got in the shower and sprayed down with MgCl and then did an ozone ear insuffalation. Then I heated up in the sauna for 15 minutes to get a good sweat going. Next, I got into my ozone suit and set up my oxygen breathing system. Only did 15 minutes instead of 20 on the first try. Felt OK afterwards..... lets just see if I live to my goal of 92. If I's not oxygenated then there is no such thing. Oxygen was going in via my ears, and breathing and Ozone was going in transdermerly.

If you have followed my thread on this new protocol, then you know that I bastardized Dr Shallenberger's program, in that I first talked to my oxygen supplier on how to use medical oxygen instead of the $6000 device recommended. They said to get your doctor to write a prescription for 4 liters of oxygen. My Nurse Practitioner did that. You have to get up before daylight to out sheet this ole sheeter.

Don't know why my eyes looked like they did after a Ga Tech Saturday night fraternity party back in the '50's, but they did. Study hard and party hard.
