Prolozone® Pain Therapy

From the American Academy of Ozonotherapy website:

Prolozone® is a homeopathic/oxygen injection technique developed and pioneered by Dr. Shallenberger. It is excellent for all forms of musculo-skeletal and joint pain including chronic neck and back pain, rotator cuff injuries, degenerative and arthritic hips and knees, degenerated discs, and shoulder and elbow pain. The good thing about Prolozone is that because it actually corrects the pathology of the disorder, there is a 75% chance for the chronic pain sufferer to becoming permanently pain free.

What is Prolozone?

Prolozone is derived from the Latin word “proli” “proliferate”, meaning to produce new cells in rapid succession to regenerate or rebuild tissues with ozone. Ozone is the most highly active form of oxygen in the universe. Prolozone uses the power of oxygen to cause damaged tissues, joints, ligaments, and tendons to regenerate. This usually causes a complete healing, and a permanent end to pain.

How Does Prolozone Work?

The reason that some injuries completely heal and others don’t has to do with circulation. In order for a damaged area of the body to regenerate and heal, it must have the critical elements that only the blood can provide: vitamins, minerals, and oxygen.

Of these, by far the most important is oxygen. Low levels of oxygen cause an accumulation of lactic acid, which is what causes pain. Prolozone works in three ways. First, homeopathic anti-inflammatory medications are injected into the injured area to reduce inflammation and swelling. This leads to increased circulation. Next, the area is treated with vitamins and minerals that are critical for healing. And finally, the area is infiltrated with oxygen in the form of ozone. The result is that the tissues get what they need to heal. And as they heal, the circulation to the area is re-established, and the treatment is complete. The response to treatment varies from person to person, but most people only need from 3-5 treatments.

What will you experience?

The majority of our clients report little to no pain during the treatment. Over 80% of the patients feel immediate improvement. Prolozone injections use special treatment solution and Active Oxygen. As a result you may experience some mild discomfort, swelling and stiffness in the area that can last from 1 hour to a couple days. What is special treatment solution is made off? Special solution is made of natural ingredients and can be injected to improve cellular nutrition. It can include herbal extracts, dextrose, saline, B vitamins, peptides, cellular stimulants and possibly some homeopathic ingredients.

Conditions That Can Be Treated With Prolozone

Prolozone works on just about any pain problem you might have, including:

neck pain, whiplash, degenerated or herniated discs, low back pain, plantar fascitis, carpal tunnel syndrome, torn tendons, TMJ syndrome, sciatica, heel spurs, neuromas, tennis elbow, rotator cuff tears, knee injuries, and virtually any other sports injury.

Because Prolozone treatments also result in cartilage regeneration, the technique is also remarkably effective even for severe cases of osteo arthritis of the hip or knee. The good thing about Prolozone is that it is not just a treatment for pain. The results actually represent a permanent fix.

This article by Dr. Shallenberger explains the history, mechanism, indications and patient results from prolozone.

Major Autohemotherapy (MAH) Ozone Treatment

MAH is the most common, and in most cases the most effective way ozone is administered. Major Autohemotherapy is a safe and powerful procedure that helps the body activate its own immune system and free radical scavengers which in turn help to clean up what doesn’t belong in the body. It is widely used in inflammatory conditions, like circulatory issues and wounds that are slow to heal, or chronic infections

Major Autohemotherapy is performed by removing some of your blood and infusing it with ozone , then putting it back into your body by IV. It appears that when ozone is injected into the treated sample of blood it destroys any pathogens and when it is injected back into the person it has the effect of an autogenous (self-generated) vaccine. The patient relaxes in a chair in the IV room and has 100-250ml of blood removed into a sterilized IV bag. Then ozone is injected into the bag, which is gently shaken, allowing the red and white blood cells to take up the ozone. The ozonated blood is then returned to the body via IV drip. The Major Autohemotherapy boosting the immune system, cleansing the blood, and improving oxygen delivery to tissue. Major Autohemotherapy helps the body activate its own immune system and has been safely used for decades throughout the entire world.

An alternative method to Major Autohemotherapy has become widely spread and more popular. It is known as drip phleboclysis of ozonated saline. The method is simple to use. Sterile saline on being barbotaged with ozone/oxygen mixture in a flask is to be infused intravenously.

The first use of ozone intravenously (major autohemotherapy) was done in the 1940s and 1950s and its development is credited to Dr. H. Wolff. It’s the most common ozone treatment today and is used by thousands of physicians worldwide in countries like Germany, Austria, Switzerland, Italy, France, England and Canada as well as in Russia, Eastern Europe, Cuba and Mexico.
