Using ozone for healing

Ozone can regenerate injured joints and completely eliminate pain in most patients.

by Dr. Paul Stallone — 

Either by firsthand experience or through the grapevine, you may be familiar with Prolozone, a remarkable, natural treatment that can permanently treat most joint pain and degenerative joint disease. If you have done any research on Prolozone, the name Frank Shallenberger, M.D., may sound familiar. He pioneered the treatment and continues to train and certify physicians around the world to practice this well-studied, time-proven treatment. A vocal proponent for the advancement and use of ozone, Shallenberger has written books, newsletters and given lectures about ozone and its many uses.

A name you may not recognize is Dr. Silvia Menendez. She is from Cuba and has had difficulty gaining permission to travel to the United States. Hopefully her name and research will begin to gain attention and respect in the U.S. In fact, Shallenberger and Menendez recently held a six-hour presentation to discuss her research and advancements with ozone over the last 23 years.

Some may scoff at the idea that Cuba can make a medical advancement ahead of America. But it seems that Cuba’s health care system is interested in actually providing its patients with real treatments, whereas the U.S. health care system is primarily profit-driven. Cuba embraced ozone when Menendez introduced it in 1986, after learning that Germany was researching its use.

Menendez has written and co-written more than 159 research studies that were published in peer-reviewed medical and scientific journals. She has presented 244 papers in 51 international and national ozone congresses. Needless to say, she is extremely well-educated and practiced when it comes to the use of ozone.

With Cuba’s encouragement, Menendez has been given liberties in ozone research that are not granted in the U.S. She has been able to conduct several studies on patients suffering from macular degeneration and glaucoma. Macular degeneration patients experienced considerable enhancement in both visual acuity and visual field. Out of 482 patients with open-angle glaucoma, Menendez reported stabilization in 100 percent of the patients within three weeks. She also treated 68 patients with retinitis pigmentosa. These patients experienced positive results in three weeks and continued to improve six months after treatment.

Menendez studied 60 patients who were suffering from leg ulcers for more than two years and applied ozone therapy to cut the healing time in half. Ozone has amazing properties when it comes to battling internal and external infections. Menendez also studied the effects of ozone on test subjects who were taking antibiotics. Ozone actually doubled their effectiveness.

Ozone can regenerate almost any tissue, whether damaged or diseased, including brain cells. The results Menendez achieved with dementia patients are groundbreaking and revolutionary. She treated approximately 250 patients with different stages of dementia and, like the eye patients, in three weeks 90 percent of them showed marked improvement. More than 84 percent had considerable progress with self-care, eating and walking.

Ozone can regenerate injured joints and completely eliminate pain in most patients. I have successfully treated some patients with just a few treatments for as little as a month. Severe damage can take longer, but most people report a huge reduction in pain after each treatment. Mobility and flexibility are also restored.

Ozone has many supporters, as well as many critics. Many who oppose its use are simply inexperienced and are doing a disservice to their patients and/or general public by giving an uneducated opinion. Ozone is inexpensive and non-patentable. No pharmaceutical company can make millions from ozone treatments; so you can imagine how something that is all natural and is more effective than any drug would be discredited. A certified physician needs to go through the proper training to administer ozone.

Ozone may scare you if you relate it with the suffocating smog that blankets heavily populated areas, but ozone is neither smog nor pollution. Smog is a combination of hydrocarbons and volatile organic compounds (VOCs). Ozone (O3) is made up entirely of oxygen, is completely natural and is simply three atoms of oxygen linked together, which is just one more atom than the normal oxygen (O2) you breathe.

The process that creates pollution also creates ozone, hence the association, but one should not be considered harmful just because the other is. Ozone is used successfully throughout the world in both medicine and everyday use. It is a natural purifier and is used to purify the Los Angeles water supply, plus many other municipal cities around the world.

Germany has performed millions of ozone treatments with a side effect rate of only 0.0007 percent, none of which were remotely life-threatening. In the U.S., more than one million patients are hospitalized annually due to side effects from prescription medications and more than 100,000 people die from such drug usage. Physicians like Shallenberger, Menendez and numerous others are putting their reputations and careers on the line for their patients and the right to use ozone openly and freely.

I have been using ozone for many years with wonderful results to treat patients with cancer, infectious diseases, auto-immune diseases, Lyme disease and joint pain. Ozone was used to save a patient from having his foot amputated from a gangrenous infection that conventional medicine could not treat. Within hours, his infection and pain diminished extensively, and results continued to improve over the next few days. Ozone was also used as part of a treatment plan to reduce the size of a tumor on a boy’s backside. The growth was the size of an apple, located in the crease of his thigh and buttock. It had been operated on multiple times but would aggressively grow back within months and break through the skin, making sitting impossible. By using ozone, the tumor shrank and greatly increased the patient’s quality of life.
