Ozone therapy is his passion. It has been used in medicine since 1915 and now with 100 years of clinical use behind it has an impressive record in improving health and restoring normal physiological function.
What might it do for you? Essentially ozone restores oxygen saturation to the body’s tissues. With any form of illness the oxygen levels drop and if they get depressed 40% below normal cancer is encouraged to grow. Low oxygen signals fatigue, usually becoming chronic. The oxidative (Life Force) power of the body is reduced and metabolism goes down to a less efficient level. Conversely, when the oxygen saturation is returned to normal there is a strong chance of recovery of normal physiological function i.e.: A return to better health.
Ozone therapy is unsurpassed as a method of oxygenation and is a cousin of hyperbaric oxygen therapy.
Six treatments are required to receive the ozone effect and as metabolism improves vastly resulting benefits are very long lasting.

Prolotherapy & Prolozone therapy
Prolotherapy is a non-invasive, cost-effective solution to many problems associated with the wear and tear of joints and back problems. Especially effective with knee and shoulder damage and lower back issues.
An injection of dextrose and lidocaine are used to perform prolotherapy. The injection is given into damaged tissue (ligaments and tendons) which causes it to inflame and then heal. In the healing process more strength is added to bony connections.
Ligaments hold joints firmly so they move in correct alignment. Tendons attach muscles to bones. Tearing of ligaments and tendons off bones causes sloppy joint movement and pain.
Prolozone involves injecting ozone into the painful or inflamed areas, similar to prolotherapy.
Once repaired non-surgically with prolotherapy, muscles can then strengthen around the joint. Once the joint is strong, it remains so unless another accidental injury occurs. Prolotherapy increases circulation and nutrients that help tissue repair itself. This collagen strengthening technique can be used for all joint injuries, old or new.
Using the body’s own inherent self-healing properties to regenerate tissue in the body.
Ancient systems of medicine such as acupuncture and manipulative medicine have tapped into this capability to varying degrees by enhancing blood flow, nerve conduction and oxygenation to areas that need to be healed. As our understanding of the body’s own mechanisms for healing has matured, we have developed new techniques with a more robust healing potential.
In the field of Musculoskeletal Medicine, Prolotherapy, using a concentrated Dextrose (corn sugar) solution injected at the area requiring regeneration, can initiate the healing response. The first phase of healing is inflammation, where the blood flow to the area is increased bringing white blood cells to clean up the area and platelets with growth factors to stimulate stem cells to regenerate tissue.
The next evolution beyond Prolotherapy involves harvesting stem cells and concentrated growth factors from patients own blood and then injecting them directly into the area to be regenerated. This is second generation platelet rich plasma utilizing ozonated growth factors that can be used to stimulate regeneration of muscles, tendons, ligaments and cartilage. It can also be used for a variety of aesthetic conditions like hair regrowth, facial regeneration and reducing scars.

A few testimonials:
“Since the Ozone treatment to my neck and shoulders I have been able to move more freely and I can now drive the car for 3 hours with no discomfort. I feel I have gained about 90% improvement with only one treatment administered. I am able to swing normally at golf now and feel confident with my game going forward.
Quite an incredible result!

“This is a Testimony made in respect to my Mother Norma Dale age 74 years old who contracted a virual flu infection in May 2013. This infection progressed to pneumonia with infection to her lower respiratory tract and lung, whereby the lungs were hyper- inflated. my Mother was taking a multiple series of antibiotics of which none seemed to be working. She progressed to a further critical condition requiring hospitalisation treatment.
My Mother also suffered an acute renal failure with a critically low eGFR blood reading of only 10 ml/min/1.73m2 L >90 together with high Haemoglobin reading and high Ferritin reading causing a high level of secondary inflammatory Process and a high Creatinine level thus indicating an immediate requirement for hospitalisation. My Mother was so critical that she was close to dying with a multiple symptom diagnosis. She was unable to walk and spent everyday confined to bed drifting in and out of consciousness. Coupled together with this critical condition mum was suffering lower back pain affecting her ability to walk. I took mum after much persuasion to see Doctor Wayne McCarthy who has provided to the writer Ozone Prolo-Therapy treatments in the past.
After mum received her first two Prolo-Ozone treatments by IV in the first week my Mother felt an immediate improvement and received a further two treatments in the second week and she felt a further significant improvement. This was followed by one further treatment each week for a total of seven treatments. At the sixth treatment she had a further new blood test count taken and the results of this new reading were showing that all her blood count functions had returned back to within the range of normal levels. After visiting her local GP he was so astounded to see such a remarkable improvement considering her acute critical condition, and he couldn’t believe the new results.
Over those 5 weeks of receiving Ozone IV therapy treatment by Doctor Wayne McCarthy I can absolutely state categorically that Ozone treatments saved my Mothers life. Mum received one further Ozone treatment and continues to improve and she does not have any further symptoms of infection or renal impairment.
In respect to her lower back mum received from Doctor Wayne McCarthy one treatment of prolo-therapy targeted to specific areas to her lower back joints to repair and effectively heal the damaged joints from years of wear and tear, mum immediately felt no further lower back pain and can confirm she has not experienced any further back pain. My Mother is incredibly grateful to Doctor Wayne McCarthy and due to his many years of specialised Ozone medical experience has given back not only my Mothers life but her equality of life so we are both very internally grateful to him and we will continue to visit him periodically for a maintenance follow up consultation.
We would highly recommend anyone who has moderate to serious health conditions or specific health issues to seek a consultation with Doctor Wayne McCarthy as an amazing alternative to receive Ozone prolo-therapy for the best possible well being treatment that one human can provide to another on this planet Earth. Prolo-Therapy repairs injuries and can restore new support and growth to fibre and tissue that heals our injuries to joints and muscle tissue. Ozone treatment is the most natural way to heal and repair naturally our body’s defence’s to provide optimum oxygen level support to all our organs and trigger our body’s immune system to strengthen and seek out to destroy and protect our body’s from pathogens, viruses and infections even hidden conditions including and not excluding the most dangerous being cancers that may be developing without our knowledge in our blood system, all these sickness conditions are preventing and causing our body’s natural ability from enjoying and living a life of optimum Well Being.
I can only hope this message spreads to all parts of New Zealand and all over the world. I understand in particularly the New Zealand’s health and Hospital System are realising that this treatment is proving to be a treatment of natural healing magic which continues to defy traditional medicine treatments.
Blessings to you Doctor Wayne McCarthy, you have truly proved to be a Doctor who has pushed the limits to advance medical knowledge of Ozone treatments to treat the most serious forms of disease. I wish to thank you and on behalf of my Mother Norma sincerely and wish you well in your continued journey of natural medicine.
“The prolotherapy you did for me on my lower and upper back have proven to be nothing short of amazing! The years of suffering with a bad lower back after an auto accident left me thinking that I was doomed to live in pain for the rest of my life. When after just one treatment all the pain vanished I was thrilled!
Needless to say when recently a store sign fell on my head and left me unconscious for 8 hours, my husband brought me to you for prolo on my neck and upper back. Again, just one treatment and I am back on the tennis court!
Thank you for giving me back my life.” Monica
