Medical use of ozone therapy has been around since the 1800’s. Tessla actually built an ozone machine in the 19th century. In Europe, ozone therapy is a treatment of choice in many countries.

Your body is designed to heal itself. If you get cut, your body has the mechanism in place to automatically heal itself. When we cast you, we are simply allowing your body to heal itself–the cast is only there to provide support. When we give you antibiotics, they work with your body’s natural defenses in order to eliminate bacteria–the antibiotics alone would not help. Ozone therapy works because it gives your body what it needs in order to jumpstart the natural healing processes that each body possesses.
Ozone is a highly active gas that is safe within the human body because of the pH that exists within the human body and the liquid environment that is within the human body.
