Ozone therapy and its practice in México
Senator Cuéllar is not a newcomer to the ozone therapy. Since when she was mayor of the city of Tlaxcala (in the State of the same name) between 2008 and 2010, her municipality already included ozone therapy campaigns.
With the interventions of Dr. Enrique Higareda of the Imss (Mexican Institute of Social Security) and Dr. Jorge Rafael Hernandez del Issste (Institute of Security and Social Services of State Workers), it was specified that for some time ozone therapy has being accepted and applied in different public health centers in Mexico.
The Plenary Hall of the Permanent Commission became very small after housing more than 100 health professionals from different Mexican states. Many could not get access to the plenary hall due to a physical lack of space.
12 countries have regularized ozone therapy
The participants were informed by the panelist Roberto Quintero, legal adviser of Aepromo, Imeof and Isco3 that the legal initiative has already been carried out in 12 countries and how convenient that ozone therapy has legal support. Confidently, he said, that Mexico be the next country to regulate ozone therapy.
Lobby in favor of the project
The important initiative of Senator Lorena Cuellar should be warmly supported. The legislative initiative has begun to move. It is now up to all the Mexican Ozone therapists to get fully involved in the process, lobbying with the senators of their states, so that they may support this initiative. The legislative process is complex but it has already arrived there. Ozone therapy has entered the agenda of the Mexican Senate. Hopefully it will be translated into a positive legislative project for ozone therapy, for health professionals and especially for patients and the population in general. If approved, it will then to the House of Representatives.
