Been away for a while so did not have time to post about anything. Decided to take my family to Kenya to meet their relatives, you see, my wife is of Kenyan decent and has a huge family there. It was also the place where I was fortunate enough to start my work with Medical Ozone Therapy. It was the place where I met my wife, in a pharmacy. She was a pharmacist there and I needed to purchase medication on a regular basis . . . even more so when I set eyes on her obvious beauty, but that's another story.
The reason I tell you this is because when I came back from Kenya with my kids, my wife had decided to stay for another two weeks. I was not feeling quite well. I had at first thought it was from the excitement of the trip and all that travelling with two kids in tow, and of course I would have jet lag and a bit of exhaustion, so it was something expected and I would get over it.
The day after my trip I went to pick up my dog from the veterinarian where he was being housed while we were away. Only about five or so yards from our clinic I had a very bad feeling set over me and decided to return to the ozone clinic. Upon entering I found myself very breathless and kind of woozy so I sat down. I could hear our manager at the clinic talking to me but I really could not make out what she was saying, as if I was in a trance and about to go to sleep. Still trying to catch my breath and keep myself together I could see all sorts of commotion around me, a bit scary at first, but really I didn't think much of it. I was ushered to a bed and made to lay down.
After a while, I had found out that my blood pressure was 90/60 and my pulse was 130. For someone of my size and height, this was of course very alarming, so they immediately started to give me IV fluids in an effort to stabilize me. This worked and my blood pressure came up to an acceptable range, and my pulse came down, but not much. I needed rest I thought, and it seemed like I was very dehydrated.
The next day I noticed that even the slightest movement would make me go breathless, and I immediately made an appointment with a very skilled Cardiologist friend of ours to see what it was that was going on. After tests and scans, we had found that there were a host of issues, my blood profile was a bit alarming and the CT scan showed that I had a large abscess in my spleen, somewhat of a rare disorder but very deadly. We immediately set out to do what was necessary, which was to be 4 grams of broad spectrum antibiotics a day for three days, another 2 grams of antibiotics per day for another three days, and then 1000 mg. per day for three weeks.
Why am I telling you this story? It is very simple. I have wanted to write for a long time about the fact that it is not always right to choose alternative therapies with every problem that we encounter. Sometimes it is necessary to use pharmaceuticals first and then choose alternatives. The question of course that I had been given was, why did you not use Medical Ozone Therapy for your abscess? Well, Medical Ozone as powerful as it is, does not have the capability to get rid of this type of abscess as fast as antibiotics do. Since there was an urgent need that we could not satisfy without pharmaceutical intervention, we chose antibiotics. This is exactly the point that I am trying to make.
In this medical world of ours there are many modalities that can be used and many disorders that need to be treated, along with that, there are many variations in humans and it is never one treatment, or therapeutic principle, that will benefit all. Life does not work that way, and certainly Medical Science does not work that way. We must really come out of this either conventional or alternative, either carnivore or vegetarian mentality. This is not what it is about, it is about taking all into consideration and working on what is best for you, specifically and individually.
Though I am dedicated to the promotion of Ozone Therapies as one of the safest and most potent healing options available today, I also recognize that some individuals are unable to do MOT, and, as a result, other options must be considered, or other factors corrected, before ozone can be done. And in some cases, pharmaceuticals might be beneficial/needed.
There is nothing wrong with this line of thinking and any skilled doctor or practitioner should embrace it as it is probably a lot easier to make a person not only feel better but get to a state of health much faster than with and either or mentality. We are in a world where it seems that every modality has its own team fighting against the other. Alternative practitioners against pharmaceuticals, naturalists against conventionals, vegetarians against meat eaters. I sit back and ask myself why?
In my opinion, the answer is not in one or the other, the true answer is in all of it together. We must, for the sake of all that are sick and diseased, come together and use whatever means are at our disposal to cure the ills of mankind. We must all stop thinking that the way we know is the best, because we really do not know, there are more things to learn and more possibilities to examine. I have said this time and time again. My journey in the healing arts started about twenty years ago and every day I learn something new. Sometimes, what I learn shakes the foundation that my thinking was built upon and I have to re-evaluate.
The true calling to heal is not about a closed mind, it is about an open mind to accept all that we have on this planet. There is much to learn, and even though we have found ways to tackle some of the major illnesses that exist, there will always be more and there will always be better. It has been that way since the beginning.
I encourage you to explore new thoughts, look at all options, do not be afraid of any modality that brings about a change in your thinking. It just may be the right one for you and may save your life or that of a loved one. Do not let financial gain, or stubborn thoughts, or what someone else taught you get in the way. I did not and that is why I am alive today and able to write this to you...
