Ozone Treatment for Immune Support and Wound Healing

Ozone therapy at Gordon Medical AssociatesOzone Therapy is a medical therapy that has been used worldwide for over 50 years with dramatic success and safety. Ozone therapy increases the amount of oxygen in the body through the introduction of ozone. Ozone (O3) is a modified form of oxygen, produced from oxygen (O2) in an electric generator. It is produced as a gas, with powerful oxidizing properties and multiple medical uses.

Ozone is simply an energized form of oxygen. It is created when electric or ultraviolet energy causes oxygen atoms to temporarily recombine in groups of three. Once inside the body, the ozone attaches itself to diseased cells. Cells infected with a virus are already weakened by being used as a host by the disease. This weakening shows up as lowered levels of enzymatic activity in the cell wall. The substandard protein coating is imbalanced and incomplete, and it is the perfect attractor for the extra oxygen molecule present in medical ozone.

Once the ozone attaches itself to the infected cell, the cell wall is further damaged. Either the immune system is activated to remove the damaged cell, or the apoptosis pathway is activated in the affected cell. Apoptosis is programmed cell death, the normal process of removing ill or damaged cells in a healthy body. In both cases the cell is broken down and removed from the body. Healthy cells with intact cell walls are not damaged. In fact, healthy cells get a boost in their ability to make more energy after exposure to ozone in small amounts. All substances are toxic in the wrong quantities, but ozone used medically is applied in quantities that help, not harm.

More on the Metabolomics Study

Reposted from the May 2016 Open Medicine Foundation Newsletter

Announcing the Expanded ME/CFS Metabolomics Study

We are very excited to announce an amazing new collaboration with Dr. Robert Naviaux and our very own Dr. Ronald Davis, director of our ME/CFS Scientific Advisory Board. As previously announced, Dr. Naviaux (of the University of California, San Diego School of Medicine) joined our Advisory Board and brings remarkable knowledge in metabolomics and mitochondria.

In addition to Dr. Naviaux and Dr. Davis, the new study is being conducted in collaboration with Dr. Paul Cheney and Dr. Eric Gordon’s team. Dr. Davis will correlate the metabolic findings with genetic results. [Read more…]

PANS and PANDAS: New Understanding of an Underappreciated Cause of Chronic Illness

Today, I am delighted to be joined by Amy Joy Smith, a Nurse Practitioner working at Pacific Frontier Medical, who has extensive experience working with complex chronic illness and a special interest in, and knowledge of PANS and PANDAS. While these names sound cuddly, they reflect a severe autoimmune response to an infection which has behavioral and neurological symptoms in both children and adults. Please join us for this important discussion about another under appreciated cause for chronic illness.

The Cell Danger Response: A new understanding of chronic illness

Today, I am delighted to be joined again by Dr. Ben Lynch to discuss the Cell Danger Response (CDR). The CDR is a new and profound understanding of how chronic illness can be caused, and how to heal it. Dr. Lynch and I have recently presented this material, which was developed by Dr. Robert Naviaux to several medical audiences who have enthusiastically received it.

Helping the Unusually Sensitive Patient to Heal

Today, I am delighted to bring back to our program, my friend and colleague, Dr. Wayne Anderson. We are putting on a symposium later this month on the subject of diagnosing and treating the extremely sensitive patient. We are seeing more and more patients who cannot tolerate the typical doses of medications, supplements, and even homeopathics. This broadcast will be devoted to understand how this happens and how we can help those patients to heal.

Low Dose Immunotherapy: A New Healing Tool

Today, I am delighted to be joined by Dr. Ty Vincent who has developed the new healing protocols for Low Dose Immunotherapy. As a veteran integrative family physician working in Alaska and Hawaii, Dr. Vincent realized that the Low Dose Antigen (LDA) program developed by Dr. Schrader could be expanded to include a wider range of healing possibilities. In addition to its long and excellent track record with allergies of every type, this new tool can be useful for treating Lyme disease and co-infections, and Candida, Interstitial Cystitis and a lot more. Please join us to explore this exciting field of healing!

The Future of Healing the Immune System: Biome Reconstitution

Today, I am delighted to be joined by William Parker, PhD from Duke University, who is one of the pioneers of Biome Reconstitution. Although that phrase sounds complicated, what it refers to is correcting the imbalances in our intestines by re-introducing carefully selected benign microbes that have the ability to remind our immune system about the millennia-long relationship it has had with these microbes, and by doing so, reboot the intestinal milieu to a much healthier state. This concept may underlie the future of immunology and we encourage you to tune in for this important program.
