The International Scientific Committee on Ozone Therapy ISCO3 had their international meeting on June 11 and 12, 2015. The Conference was held at the Royal Academy of Medicine in Madrid, with support from the Spanish Association of Medical Professionals in Ozone Therapy. This educational gathering brought together medical doctors, veterinarians, and dentist from 20 different countries. The historical lecture hall was over 300 years old. With interpreters and headsets, ideas and research were presented on ozone research techniques and procedures. I was fortunate enough to present a paper on “Ozone Therapy used Instead of Antibiotics for Micro Biome Restorative Therapy Yields Successful Outcomes for Dogs and Cats with Fecal Transplants.” My lecture was well received and created a lot of discussion within the conference. Many of the doctors had never heard of Micro Biome Restorative Therapy (“MBRT”). My clients and their wonderful pets with their positive experiences were able to give these doctors another possible treatment for their human and animal patients. Fecal transplantation is being done in many of the hospitals in the United States for Clostridium Dificil. This has not been known as a procedure in many other parts of the world to help with this deadly iatrogenic problem due to the overuse of antibiotics. Using Ozone Therapy instead of using more antibiotics like vancomycin and metronidazole, we were able to reduce the biofilm of the gut enabling the fecal transplant to be completed successfully.

I had a chance to meet Dr. Velio Bocci, who is the father of modern day Ozone and has published many research articles and books. He was quite fascinated with the idea of restoring the micro biome and using ozone for the reduction of the biofilm. We ate together at the final banquet.
I had a chance to spend hours with Drs. Eugeny Nazarov from the Ukraine and Manuel Velez Aguilar. These are two of the Renaissance Men that were part of this conference. These men and women are willing to look way outside the box of conventional thought for the improvement of health for their patients. The results they see are truly amazing and need to be shared with mainstream medicine.
Two days prior to the conference I had a tour of the Sedecal Company and their facility, where they make x-ray equipment and ozone machines. Manuel Delgado de las Vega and Sean Calton gave me a lot of engineering understanding of how an ozone machine works. The intensity and quality of engineering on both the x-ray and ozone machines was impressive. I never realized how much computerization and electrical equipment and motherboards went into each of these products.
The day prior to going to the conference I had a chance to spend time with Dr. Mercedes Aviles who has an integrative veterinary practice right outside the city. She does a lot of major auto- hemotherapy and I saw her treat a dog with osteosarcoma, who is still three years alive post diagnosis and amputation. She also treated a case of Leishmaniasis with ozone therapy.
Following the conference I was able to participate in an Ozone wet lab and lecture in human medicine on an array of different ozone treatments at Dr. Andriana Schwartz’s practice in Madrid. Some of the procedures I have been doing at MASH, while others were different; I may begin to do some of those. With Platelet Rich Plasma PRP ozone has a potentiation and needs to be used in many aspects of wounds treatments.
Prior to going to Madrid, I spent four days in Mumbai, India. There I was able to give a lecture at the Bombay Veterinary School, which happens to be the oldest veterinary school in Asia. The lectures were very well received and there was much of interest in bringing integrative veterinary coursework to the college. We showed Dr. DoMore and gave out a copy of Dr.ShowMore so that students and faculty could see different aspects of integrative medicine.
The hospitality and enthusiasm were wonderful. Presently, there is no integrative veterinary medicine at the college or in any of the veterinary schools in India. Encouraging the faculty and students to know about all the courses both online and around the world was important. I let them know about the American Holistic Veterinary Medical Association (“AHVMA”) and their meeting, was hoping to encourage some of them to attend. Being that the Bombay Veterinary School was the oldest one in India, it seemed appropriate that they should begin to look at the Ayurvedic medicine that is in their country’s natural medicine. We even passed a homeopathic medical school on the way to the lecture. Dr. Prathmesh Deshmuka, who took the Chi Course in Acupuncture in Madrid, attended and now wants to add ozone to his practice in Mumbai. He also was able to reconnect to the faculty at Bombay Vet School to start introducing acupuncture into the curriculum as a lecture series.
The poverty in India is palpable, but there are still a lot of people with money who want to take the best care of their pets. This past year Dr. Komal Kenai, an Indian small animal practitioner, took my ozone course in Reno and then came to my veterinary hospital to shadow me for two weeks. She was able to see many modalities being used and returned back to her veterinary hospital to implement them. She now wants to take acupuncture, homeopathy and herbal courses so she can have more tools to help the pets and her practice. Having a chance to see some diseases I never get to see, like cysticerca, was an opportunity. Eating lots of well-cooked Indian food caused me to gain a few pounds. I even had a chance to shop and buy some Indian style clothes. Dr. Sunita Patel was nice enough to have me as her guest as I shared cases at the veterinary clinic. Her practice treats many stray animals and for that she and her daughter raise money for the very poor animal population. They took me to an event that raised $8000 in one night for the strays.
Sharing information with others around the world is so important and knowing that we all know so little and we need collective, collaborative thought to find solutions to really challenging healthcare issues.
