Last week I received a letter from the Federal Trade Commission instructing me to remove the recent postings from my website and Facebook page promoting Ozone Therapy for COVID-19 disease.
They claimed that I was “unlawfully advertising that certain services treat or prevent Coronavirus Disease”. They further go on to state that “It is unlawful to advertise that a service can prevent, treat, or cure human disease unless you possess competent and reliable scientific evidence, including, when appropriate, well controlled human clinical studies, substantiating that the claims are true at the time they are made. For COVID-19, no such study is currently known to exist for the service identified above”.
If you search PUBMED on the subject there are thousands of articles about how eﬀective Ozone Therapy is for viral illnesses in general, and dozens of articles about the eﬀectiveness in treating COVID-19 illness. I have reported in previous newsletters (that the FTC has asked me to remove) about how 20 hospitals in Italy have been successfully treating thousands of COVID patients with Ozone.
Here are two more recent articles about the eﬀectiveness of Ozone for COVID illnesses:
In addition, here is a link to Antonio Gaspari’s new book “Ozone A Cure for Life” https://www.amazon.co.uk/dp/B08HQ8MG75 which discusses the Italian experience with Ozone treatments for COVID patients.
I don’t know if there are doctors at the Federal Trade Commission who have the medical knowledge to determine that these articles published in respected medical journals are not credible. Generally, articles accepted for publication in medical journals have been rigorously reviewed and scrutinized by specialty medical review boards before being accepted for publication. I have always relied upon published articles in medical journals to guide my decisions in medicine for the past 40 years.
Obviously, these articles were reliable enough to pass the requirements for publication and are now listed on PUBMED in the world’s literature.
But the FTC has determined that these are “not competent and reliable scientific evidence” and therefore they have warned me not to promote Ozone Therapy for COVID. So, I will be compliant as the consequences of defying them would be devastating to my practice and my patients.
But I think it’s important for my patients and anyone else interested in the world of medicine to be made aware of new information. At a certain point it becomes a First Amendment issue, Freedom of Speech. Isn’t that what this country was founded upon?
I have personally treated two COVID patients. One is a “Long Hauler” who has been suffering from post COVID symptoms for the past three months. I gave her four Ozone treatments combined with Ultraviolet Blood Irradiation. She reports to me that she now feels back to normal.
My second patient had a positive COVID test, high fever, shortness of breath, his oxygen saturation was 88% (normal is over 94%) and he had severe body aches and nausea. I gave him two Ozone treatments on subsequent days and on the second one his oxygen saturation went up to 98% in my office and the next day his fever, body aches and nausea were gone. He continued to rapidly improve.
I’m not making any claims about the benefits of Ozone Therapy for treating COVID-19 infections. I’m merely presenting some data on what is currently happening in other countries.
At the present time there is no cure for this horrific pandemic disease. And there is no assurance the various vaccines and other treatments being rolled out at a rapid pace will be effective. I think it’s important to remain open to all and any possible beneficial treatments, even if they are not pharmaceutical, especially when they have minimal to no adverse side effects.
This is the way for medical breakthroughs and knowledge to become helpful. I have no intention of misleading or confusing anyone with unreliable information.
I encourage you to do your own reading of the above-mentioned literature and then draw your own conclusions.
After all, we ARE living in a Free democratic society governed By the People for the People… aren’t we?
