Dr. Zieve completed his certification in ozone therapy offered by Dr. Frank Shallenberger in Reno, Nevada, in 2006. For the past 9 years, he has offered prolozone injections for chronic pain to many patients, and has helped many people with chronic pain improve their quality of life and to avoid unnecessary surgeries. In September 2015, he recertified in this therapy, offered under the auspices of the Americal Academy of Ozone Therapy (www.aaot.us).
Ozonotherapy is the use of medical grade ozone, a highly reactive form of pure oxygen, to create a curative response in the body. The body has the potential to renew and regenerate itself. When it becomes sick it is because this potential has been blocked. The reactive properties of ozone stimulate the body to remove many of these impediments thus allowing the body to do what it does best – heal itself.
Ozonotherapy has been and continues to be used in European clinics and hospitals for over fifty years. It was even used here in the United States in a limited capacity in the early part of the 20th century.
Ozonotherapy was introduced into the United States in the early 80’s, and has been increasingly used in recent decades. It has been found useful in various diseases:
•It activates the immune system in infectious diseases.
•It improves the cellular utilization of oxygen that reduces ischemia in cardiovascular diseases, and in many of the infirmities of aging.
•It causes the release of growth factors that stimulate damaged joints and degenerative discs to regenerate.
•It can dramatically reduce or even eliminate many cases of chronic pain through its action on pain receptors.
•Published papers have demonstrated its healing effects on interstitial cystitis, chronic hepatitis, herpes infections, dental infections, diabetes, and macular degeneration.
He is currently serving as Medical Director at Partners in Integrative Cancer Therapies in Prescott, AZ, and as associate physician at Partners in Healthcare Naturally in Prescott.
