is Ozone Therapy and who or what is the American Academy
Use of Ozone in Medicine has been fully accepted and common
practice in Italy and Germany for over 60 years. This incredible
healing modality has an astounding record of safety, and
efficacy (ie. it works) in a wide range of health challenges.
An impressive array of over 50
years of studies into the details of Ozone Therapy, have
revealed just how Ozone Therapy works in human medicine.
So why do we need an American
Academy of Ozonotherapy?
The use of ozone in medicine is expanding around the globe.
At this time there are professional ozone associations in
Spain, Germany, Russia, Ukraine, Turkey, Mexico, Egypt, Saudi
Arabia, and Italy. Recently Dr. Frank Shallenberger (MD),
while attending an international symposium on ozone therapy
in Madrid, was told that this international community of
ozone therapists was interested in having a professional
organization in America to associate with. As a matter of
fact, they were somewhat surprised that an American Association
did not currently exist.
There is a need to properly creditial ozonotherapists and
Prolozone Practitioners in such a way as to guarantee to
any patient that the Ozone Treatment will be done correctly,
safely, and in accordance with established procedures. The
American Academy of Ozonotherapy will be able to establish
these standards. This will protect us all from any unscrupulous
practitioners who might damage the image of ozonotherapy
or Prolozone by using unacceptable or unethical practices.
Establishing a professional academy is the first step toward
receiving recognition from licensing boards and insurance
Being board certified by a professional academy will help
protect you from unscrupulous liability claims.
Education and Research:
There is a need for an academy to provide continuing education,
and establish and support related research. The American
Academy of Ozonotherapy has the authority to perform IRB
(Investigative Review Board) Research. Members may join an
IRB study that is already underway, or apply for their own
research study regarding Ozone. IRB Ozone Studies are fully
approved by the FDA, and therefore offers all practitioners
isolation from their own licensing boards. Stated another
way, if you wish to use Ozone in your practice but don't
believe your licensing board will allow you, start or join
an IRB Study and your licensing board can not say or do anything
about your use of ozone.
