Dr. Laura Kovalcik, DO, Board-Certified in Internal Medicine and her IV nursing staff from The Downing Clinic traveled New York City to complete training on Direct IV Ozone Therapy and Prolozone therapy with Dr. Howard Robins, who along with Dr. Robert Rowen, are ozone pioneers.

Ozone is a gas which has 3 oxygen molecules, versus 2 found in oxygen. The extra oxygen molecule makes ozone unstable, meaning that it only lasts a short time. However, this instability is what makes ozone so powerful.

Very simply, when ozone is introduced into the body goes through a process and forms peroxides. These various peroxides, which can last hours or sometimes even days, create beneficial effects including anti-inflammatory properties and anti-infective properties, killing viruses, bacteria, yeast, mold, fungus, spirochetes and parasites. Ozone can also remove harmful toxins and chelate metals of nerve tissue that normal chelators can't.

Ozone therapy is safe, non-toxic, affordable and very effective. Its fewer side effects plus its affordability versus prescription pain meds and NSAIDS, like Ibuprofen and Acetaminophen, make it a better solution for many patients. Conditions that may benefit from ozone therapy include: Lyme disease, Herpes, Epstein Barr infections, autoimmune diseases, peripheral neuropathy and joint pain to name a few.

Dr. Kovalcik uses two delivery methods for ozone: Prolozone therapy where ozone is injected directly into the painful areas of the body and the Robins Method of Direct Intravenous Ozone Therapy (DIV) where ozone is injected directly into a vein. Ozone for these procedures is created in a machine in the medical office, where an electric spark is used to break apart pure oxygen molecules resulting in a combination of ozone and oxygen.

Patients have reported very positive results with pain reduction, inflammatory conditions and treatment of infections.

The Downing Clinic is located at 5715 Sashabaw Road, Suite 100, Clarkston. For more information, call 248-625-6677 or visit either or their Facebook page: TheDowningClinic.
