The Principles and Applications of Ozone Therapy – A Practical Guideline For Physicians describes Dr. Shallenberger’s experience using ozone therapy to treat patients since the early 80’s. The book details how and why Dr. Shallenberger, an emergency room specialist, first became interested in ozone therapy. It then describes how his years of successful experience with it in a wide variety of medical conditions compelled him to discover how and why the therapy works so well.
Ozone is a highly reactive form of oxygen. So he theorized that it works by enhancing the utilization of oxygen in the cells. In order to determine if he was on the right track, he developed a system which uses an FDA approved pulmonary gas analyzer to measure oxygen utilization. Then he began using that system in all of his patients. He discovered two unsuspected findings:
- First, many people, even those who feel great, are in a state of decreased oxygen utilization. They have plenty of oxygen in their bodies, but they are not using it efficiently.
- Second, ozone therapy tends to correct this condition.
