The only treatment left available to my mother is putting a stint in her brain to mask the symptoms of Parkinson’s. Ozone therapy is a wonderful alternative and I don’t care that FDA hasn’t approved it. They have their own interests in mind, not health at all.
If we don’t demand alternative treatments they will never find cures.
This is an environmental stress in the body. Giving the cells fuel to fight makes perfect sense.

Hello, Anon.

Researchers are currently exploring the effects of ozone therapy on the human body to identify any potential therapeutic benefits. So, it is still being researched in 2020, which might be taken as a good sign.   

We wish your mother well in whatever treatment she has.  Keep us updated.

Hi Anonymous,
Thank you for your question and for finding EmpowHER. Currently there is not a treatment to cure Parkinson's Disease. According to Wikipedia.com, Ozone Therapy is considered an alternative treatment that has come under a lot of controversy. It is not a US Food & Drug Administration approved method of treatment, and has come under scrutiny for the practice of administering what the FDA considers dangerous levels of ozone to humans and animals. Some peer-reviewed medical journals have looked into the possible benefits of using ozone therapy in the treatment of various disease states. On one hand, in my own opinion, I can imagine that radiation was once considered a ludicrous therapy. But you may want to do your research thoroughly, and proceed with caution when considering any alternative therapy. Have you asked your doctor about his/her opinion of it?
Here is more information about recognized treatments for Parkinson's Disease: Parkinson's Disease Treatments
Good luck, and please let us know what you find out, or if you decide to proceed with this treatment.
