The act of breathing in oxygen is, of course, life supporting. It happens without thought or focus. But oxygen is more than just the air we breathe – oxygen therapies can help your body heal and repair damaged tissue.
Blood carries oxygen throughout your body and helps fight bacteria and stimulate the healing process. Oxygen therapies increase the oxygen in your body, giving you an extra boost of healing. The therapies improve skin and support the immune system.
Ozone, or O3, is used in various treatments and products. Ozone therapy is a form of alternative medicine that purports to increase the amount of oxygen in the body. O3 is used to detoxify and kill germs and bacteria. It also helps with circulation and can possibly even decrease tumor factors.
Theresa Bryan, owner of Complete Health and Wellness Center, began her journey into oxygen therapies after being diagnosed with stage 3 cancer. Bryan had witnessed two other family members and a friend who had stage 4 cancers and said they benefited from ozone therapy. Bryan’s daughter, Dr. Tiffany Avery, suggested ozone therapy for Bryan, and after experiencing good results for herself, she studied and trained under alternative medicine pioneer Dr. Frank Shallenberger. During the course, Bryan received ozone therapy for three more tumors that a PET scan discovered. After six months, she says, all three tumors shrunk 2.5 cm. The next six-month check-up showed they had all shrunk again.
Today, Bryan is a certified ozone therapist. She also is certified in Prolozone with platelet-rich plasma, which uses a solution derived from the patient’s own blood sample.
The treatments are thought to be beneficial for conditions like allergies, Alzheimer’s, arthritis, autoimmune diseases, cancer, candidiasis, herniated discs, joint disorders and much more. Assorted procedures are said to help enhance skin’s appearance, boost the immune system and detoxify the body.
Bryan and her team include a certified acupuncturist and a naturopathic doctor who are licensed to administer injections, venipuncture, certified ozone therapies and more. “I consider ozone treatments to be instrumental in overcoming renal cell carcinoma diagnosed April 2017,” says patient Marvell Lavy. “I continue to use ozone services and products today for endless benefits.”
Adds Bryan, “I now have more knowledge on detoxifying cells at a cellular level for autoimmune, cancer, diabetics, arthritis and over 3,000 illnesses.” A service called Exercise with Oxygen Therapy allows the client to burn 350 calories in 10 to 15 minutes while oxygenating cells for maximum healing. Facials and saunas help stimulate skin’s collagen production. They also remove impurities from pores and helps to reduce fine lines and wrinkles.
Other services include micro-needling oxygen therapy, oxygen bar, sinus oxygen bar and the steam oxygen sauna. They also offer vitamins and skin care products, and in the future, Bryan will be offering natural products like soaps, lotions and sunscreens in natural food stores.
Bryan enjoys living in Northern California. “It’s a very tranquil area for healing, because without quality of health, you don’t have quality of life.” •
