Video: Dr. Minkoff Discusses the Benefits of Ozone Therapy

Dr. Minkoff talks about cancer prevention

Ozone Therapy is a powerful treatment & healing protocol that anyone suffering from a chronic or acute health condition should strongly consider. Ozone treatment can quickly improve the function of the immune system, help detoxify the body & kill off harmful pathogens.

Hi Dr. Minkoff here. I want to talk
to you today about ozone therapy.

I learned about ozone therapy about nine years ago
from my mentor Dr. Frank Shallenberger. He’s really the one who brought ozone
therapy from Europe to the United States.

There are about 3000 published
studies in the medical literature

on ozone, its effectiveness and its safety.

Actually in the early 1900’s in Florida

there is a textbook on ozone therapy that was endorsed by the Florida Medical Board as a safe treatment for many diseases.

So while it hasn’t been popular in the United States
it is actually something that’s very effective.

And we have treated thousands
of patients with ozone with excellent outcomes and really
virtually no side effects.

Now what is ozone?

When we breathe air the oxygen in the environment
is O2. So it’s two of them together.

Oxygen by itself as a single
molecule does not really exist.

So O2 in the upper atmosphere,
when lightning strikes it

will split into two oxygen molecules, O1.

O1 is very unstable and it won’t
sit like that for very long.

It will jump on O2 and make O3 which is ozone.

The reason that after a lightning storm the air smells
fresh is that O3 is a charged molecule.

It will bind with the particulates in the atmosphere,

the fog, smog, pollution type stuff, clean it up
and then the air smells better.

Now our body actually uses ozone to kill
bacteria and viruses, so our cells can produce it.

We find that we can make ozone with
something called an ozone generator.

It’s an electrical current.
It hits oxygen, it produces O3

And we can use it in the body in various
ways to help heal various things.

Now what does it do? It kills bacteria,
viruses, parasites and funguses.

It triggers the immune system
to kick up and act better.

It detoxifies things that are in the
body that shouldn’t be there.

It boosts the immunity.

It also in people when the ozone enters these little parts
of the cell which make the energy called the mitochondria

it actually improves the
function of the mitochondria.

So people who are getting ozone treatments
actually get better sports performance. So sometimes athletes come in and they get ozone treatments and they find they can run faster, lift more, that their exercise actually improves.

So those are the various uses of it.

Ozone can be put into the blood, it can be
put into bladders, it can be put into joints.

It’s very effective for healing chronic injuries.

So you have chronic pain in your
shoulder, your elbow, your low back.

By introducing ozone into the area it actually
triggers a healing response within the area itself.

We find that in people who have
chronic cystitis, interstitial cystitis,

where they have an inflammatory reaction going on in their bladders, that we could put ozone into the bladder

and about 80% of the time it calms down
the inflammation that’s in their bladder.

If people have chronic viral infections or chronic Lyme infections,

ozone helps to kill those bacteria,
so if we put it in the body it helps.

We also deliver ozone by sauna.

So we can put someone in a steam sauna
with ozone, it comes in through the skin.

So people have rashes and psoriasis and
things like that, it can help to heal that.

Ozone is a healing modality.

It helps the body to heal by providing oxygen
which is what the body needs to heal.

I think that ozone is kind of a universal
antidote to problems in the body.

If you put more oxygen in there in the form
of ozone it often helps anything to get better.

Okay, so if you’re interested in ozone therapy
look at our website, come to us for a consultation.

We are really the world experts
in this and it really helps.

And it’s a treatment that I do myself because it’s helped me okay. I hope this helps.

About Dr. Minkoff

Dr. David Minkoff graduated from the University of Wisconsin Medical School in 1974 and was elected to the “Phi Beta Kappa” of medical schools, the prestigious Alpha Omega Alpha Honors Medical Fraternity for very high academic achievement. He then completed both a Pediatric Residency and a Fellowship in Infectious Disease at the University of California at San Diego. He worked at the University of California and Children’s Hospitals in San Diego as an attending physician in infectious disease while conducting original research on Ribaviron, a broad spectrum anti-viral agent to fight disease. He also co-directed a neo-natal intensive care unit and worked in emergency medicine. In 1992, Dr. Minkoff’s attended a lecture by Dr. Jeffrey Bland, widely considered the father of functional medicine, during which he had a eureka moment, and began pursuing the alternative health field with a vengeance, studying under the most accomplished thought leaders on natural & integrative healing. In 1997 Dr. Minkoff and his wife set up a small clinic to help friends with their medical problems. What began as an experiment blossomed into LifeWorks Wellness Center, one of the most successful clinics for complementary medicine in the United States.
