"This note is long overdue. I do wish to thank you for the ozone treatments you have been administering to my mother for close to a year now. Ozone therapy has made dramatic changes in Mom’s general well-being.
When Mom first started receiving treatments in December of 2011, her physical condition was rather stressed. She was awaiting January surgery for a prolapse. Once she completed her physical therapy and recuperation at a care center, she returned to assisted living where she had been since early fall of 2011. On her first few visits with you, she was transported via wheel chair. However, with continued treatment and strengthening exercises, she abandoned the chair for a walker. She stopped using her wheelchair at the end of winter/ beginning of spring, at least eight or nine months ago.
Mom had been using hot water bottles and ice packs for months to help with her carpal tunnel symptoms (more than likely, as you have determined, resulting from arthritic discs in her neck). With the advent of ozone therapy, Mom’s usage of cold and heat gradually diminished until she no longer required any of that treatment. Her improvement has been nothing short of incredible as she required continuous intervention (throughout the day and into the night) to keep her hand pain at bay. Now, if she experiences the same twinges, she will walk over to a sink and run cold water over the offending hand for a few minutes.
Although her cognition is still challenged, in recent weeks, she resumed poetry writing; albeit, the quality of these contributions is not as coherent and lyrical as her past works. However, she is, at least, feeling challenged to write again. A good direction for her.
Although Mom does take Ibuprofen for toe pain especially and an occasional stronger medication, her pain level is far lower than it ever was in the recent past.
Another area, which is extremely essential, is your humanity. Mom loves the repartee and appreciates being treated as a valuable human being. Not only do you engage in active conversation, you also listen to her concerns with a caring heart. You do not discount her explanations of health concerns but treat her with compassion and kindness. Feeling validated and respected is essential for each of us. You have most assuredly handled Mom to help her feel a part of the human race.
Thank you with blessings!"
