Introducing… Extracorporeal Blood Oxygenation and Ozonation – OHR #422

ADA Approved Prescriptions

Did you know that…

Since 1990, 20% of drugs approved by the FDA were later reclassified as bad drugs. Bad drugs are labeled with a black box warning as potentially very harmful or drugs that have been withdrawn from the market because they were so harmful. Due to conflicts of interest between the FDA and pharmaceutical companies and corruption in medical journals, these drugs have been allowed to be used without regard to the harm they can cause.

To add, David Graham MD, Director of Drug Safety at the FDA testified to Congress in 2004, “The FDA is incapable of protecting the American public against another Vioxx.”¹

Vioxx caused many to suffer heart attacks and strokes including my own mother and led to her premature death.

Drugs are not necessarily safe. You play a little bit of roulette with your life when you take them.

“This makes prescription drugs a major health risk, ranking 4th with stroke as a leading cause of death. The European Commission estimates that adverse reactions from prescription drugs cause 200,000 deaths; so together, about 328,000 patients in the U.S. and Europe die from prescription drugs each year.”²

So the next time your doctor glibly pulls out his prescription pad, think twice and ask him and yourself, is there a better way to handle my problem?

Usually, in almost all cases, you don’t need these drugs and shouldn’t resort to them. There is a better way.

Drugs always have a poison effect. Sometimes they can help in an emergency, but not for long term healing. Better to pay attention to nutrition and detoxification to heal the body.

At LifeWorks this is how we do it.

We Now Offer Extracorporeal Blood Oxygenation and Ozonation (EBOO)

This is my 8th day of my program.  My last treatment, EBOO (first) and Rocephin yesterday, I slept well, less stiffness and pain too.  The brain fog and eyesight improved.  My pain in my right ear after MAS MAT reduced.  The internal ear swelling down, still pain remains a little and pressure.  The ear canal opened from inflammatory closure.  My balance improved.  I still have light sensitivity.  The ozone and oxygen seemed to help.  The inflammation reduced.  I have about 3 more weeks to go, I think.  I feel positive with the treatment Dr. Minkoff prescribed.  All the staff are wonderful.  I am impressed.  My thanks to their great work and dedication and above all Dr. Minkoff, you are great helping those patients.  I was searching for a physician who is willing to treat and care.  I am thankful I found you.  May God’s love bless you and your staff and your work.” – Joy
