• Hidalgo includes ozone therapy in its legislation.

With its name, the state of Hidalgo pays tribute to the father of the Mexican nation, the Catholic priest Miguel Hidalgo y Costilla.

The state of Hidalgo, whose capital is Pachuca, and with a population of more than 3 million, approved to include ozone therapy in its “Health Law”.

The project to include ozone therapy in its legislation had been presented on April 14, 2023, jointly by deputy Miguel Ángel Martínez Gómez (PRD, Democratic Revolutionary Party) and deputy Vanesa Escalante Arroyo (MORENA, National Regeneration Movement). The parliamentary initiative sought to modify article 12 bis of the Health Law of the state of Hidalgo, in order to include ozone therapy in said Law. https://aepromo.org/en/state-of-hidalgo-mexico-initiates-the-legislative-process-to-regulate-ozone-therapy/

The State Congress approved ozone therapy through Decree 301 of 2024 and it was published in the “Official Journal” of the state on April 22, 2024. http://www.congreso-hidalgo.gob.mx/biblioteca_legislativa/leyes_cintillo/Ley%20de%20Salud%20para%20el%20Estado%20de%20Hidalgo.pdf

Of the 32 states that the Mexican Republic has, three of them already have ozone therapy incorporated into their legislation.

The first to do so was Nuevo León (2018). https://aepromo.org/en/ozonoterapia-is-part-right-now-in-the-law-of-the-mexican-state-of-nuevo-leon/

Mexico City has followed (January 2023). https://aepromo.org/en/mexico-continues-to-regularize-the-practice-of-ozone-therapy/

And now Hidalgo (April 2024).
