Ozone therapy has proven effective in the treatment of both cancer and MS. The immune system was hijacked, nefarious genes were awakened or other organ systems became impaired.  I.V. ozone is a beneficial therapy for MS. I.V. ozone alone or in conjunction with other treatments gives great results. If you are already suffering with colon or any other type of cancer you may have alternative options here at Second Nature Care. We offer safe and effective Ozone therapy. All treatments are MD ordered and RN/NP administered in NYS.
