Greater Houston Area attorney Larry Hatley was a college basketball player. At 70 years old, he’s in shape and looking to keep his mind and body sharp until 100 years old and beyond. Larry says, “Our cells degrade as we age, including our stem cells. We need to replenish and strengthen them. Ozone is a well-known therapy in other countries. It strengthens the body’s immune response. We started using ozone therapy when my wife Debra was diagnosed with cancer. While she did traditional treatment for cancer, we both started ozone therapy preventatively. If the body is ozonated, cancer (and a host of other viruses and bacteria) can’t live there.”
The Hatleys received IV ozone therapy from two different Houston area clinics before discovering Dr. Julia Ward at local Balanced Body Functional Medicine. “With Dr. Ward, we are able to receive both ozone dialysis and Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy (HBOT). Ozone dialysis was new to us. It’s two IVs into the body. One draws the blood, and it is cleaned and oxygenated. Then the blood is put back in the body with the other line.” HBOT involves simply breathing pure oxygen in a pressurized environment.
“Dr. Ward is very good,” continues Larry. “The best we’ve seen. She’s a medical doctor. The others we received ozone therapy from were not. Dr. Ward always checks how we’re feeling, and she draws blood periodically to test it and check if we are where we need to be. Dr. Ward is not blindly giving shots or recommending therapy. She is scientifically checking what will most benefit you.”
Dr. Ward says, “HBOT was originally invented to treat decompression sickness in deep sea divers (the bends). Today, there are 14 conditions for which insurance will cover HBOT, and more than 150 off label conditions. Remember, everything except the bends was off label at one point. Ozone and oxygen therapy are the most trusted ways to increase oxygen levels to the brain, resulting in a variety of positive physiological, biochemical, and cellular effects…and it’s extremely safe. More oxygen creates more energy for accelerated repair and enhanced regeneration of tissue. It stimulates the immune system, reduces inflammation, and helps our cells use oxygen with the most efficiency. Some athletes use it routinely to improve performance. It’s so effective, we’ve seen competitions not allow athletes to receive HBOT therapy right before events.”
Larry continues to work as a criminal defense, personal injury, and workman’s comp attorney. Together with Debra, his life’s work is with the Congregation of Yahweh. “We plan to travel with the ministry for many, many years. With Dr. Ward’s help, we know that will be possible!”
