Just like the common cold, the COVID-19 is a respiratory disease. Current research has learned, COVID19 is thought to be more infectious in the early stages of the disease compared to other coronaviruses, such as SARS or MERS. What if we could step in early, instead of waiting for serious lung diseases to occur, wouldn’t that be smart?
“COVID-19 enters your body through your mouth, nose or eyes directly from the airborne droplets or from transfer of the virus from your hands to your face,” states the Cleveland Clinic. Don’t forget surfaces that can be colonized with viruses. Washing hands with soap to prevent transmission from hands to your mouth, nose or eyes is critical to prevent transmission. Remember, soap is best!
Cleveland Clinic states, “The virus travels to the back of your nasal passages and mucous membrane in the back of your throat. It attaches to cells there, begins to multiply and moves into lung tissue.”
Coronaviruses can live 15 days in the nasal passages before it travels to the lungs. Why is this important to know? If we could stop the virus in the nasal passage, before it travels to the lungs, we could help prevent disease. Remember what your grandmother would say, “an ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure?”
Authorities have identified measures we can take to help prevent spread of the infection. However, they have not recommended any treatments for prevention of COVID19. If you have been with us for a while, you know we were supporting the use of hydroxychloroquine for prevention early on. For more on this go here. However, pharmacists have limited the availability of hydroxychloroquine, so we turned to another highly effective therapy to help prevent infections, ozone therapy. We initially offered ozone to those 75 or older for free and a discounted rate for all others.
However, due to the severity of the COVID19 Pandemic, we are now offering ozone therapy nasally to help prevent viral diseases to all ages. This service is Free to our patients, new and established.
What is the process?
Call the office to schedule a telephone appointment (254) 773-4900 with Dr. Cole. You will have a brief interview at that time, and if Dr. Cole believes ozone is indicated, you will drive to the office at the scheduled time and receive the treatment at your car. The treatment will be curbside. You don’t even need to come in the office.
Dr. Cole will administered the ozone via the nostrils. It is quick and painless. And just in case you are concerned, Dr. Cole tested negative for COVID19 and has been on prevention therapy ever since.
We have always been committed to your health, that’s is nothing new. We just want to do our part. Now its time to get back to work again! Call the office if you need more information.
I am…(and have been for a long time)
committed to your health,
As of yesterday, we are no longer able to provide preventive medications for COVID19. The pharmacist are limiting prescriptions to only those who have confirmed positive COVID19. There are studies indicating the benefit of hydroxy chloroquine for the prevention and treatment of COVID19. More studies are always beneficial, but the safety and efficacy of this medication has a long track record with other medical conditions. The WHO organization even lists its precursor, chloroquine in the World Health Organization Model List of Essential Medications.
Ozone therapy is highly effective at the treatment of viruses, bacteria and parasites. Ozone kills viruses by damaging the viral capsid (protein shell) and upsets the reproductive cycle by disrupting the virus-to-cell contact by peroxidation and damage to the infected cell. The weakened enzyme coatings on cells make them vulnerable to invasion by viruses and makes them susceptible to oxidation and elimination from the body. These dead infected cells are then replaced with healthy cells.
Ozone also activates immune system. An increase in the production of interferon as wells as an increase in the output of tumor necrosis factor and interleukin-2 occurs. The production of interleukin-2 and an entire cascade of subsequent immunological reactions is highly beneficial.
“The immune stimulating effect of ozone therapy combined with the fact that ozone and the lipid peroxides it produces directly kill viruses.” Frank Shallenberger, MD, HMD, ABAAM
As of today, March 25th, we are offering Ozone Therapy to any individuals 75 or older for free. We believe it is our best defense against the coronovirus that we are facing now. For those younger than 75, we are offering Ozone therapy essentially at cost of $25. For more information, contact the office. You may need to leave a message even during office hours. Call us anytime.
We want to do our part and have the healthiest community possible. Stay safe.
