June 12, 2020 Texas Medical Board (TMB) Clarifies Access To
Ozone Therapy for the Treatment of COVID-19 under
Texas Administrative Code Title 22 Part 9 Chapter 200 - STANDARDS FOR PHYSICIANS PRACTICING COMPLEMENTARY AND ALTERNATIVE MEDICINE (CAM)
July 31, 2020 - TMB Press Release TMB clarifies any therapy is available under CAM rules since there is no established "standard of care" approved by the FDA.
Excerpts: “Both patients and physicians have a right to decide what treatment may be used for COVID-19. The Board does not issue endorsements of the use of any specific drugs or treatments for COVID-19, but any treatment decision must be made with full, proper and accurate disclosure by a physician.
Physicians should refer to laws and Board rules, including those for complementary and alternative medicine, when considering potential treatments and medical decisions regarding COVID-19.”
Yes, there are treatment options for COVID being successfully used in Italy, China, Spain and many other countries as reported in news articles and medical publications.
Many therapy success stories have been shared by physicians on social media that we’ve all seen talking about success using:
Hydroxychloroquine the malaria drug
- (Ivette Lozano, MD - Dallas),
Budesonide inhalant steroids
- (Richard Bartlett, MD - Midland - case study, protocol)
Ivermectin - Science Direct
Natural substances like:
- Vitamins A, C, D, iodine, hydrogen peroxide, ozone
(David Brownstein, MD - West Bloomfield, MI),
- Melatonin -PubMed,
- Cannabidiol - PubMed,
- Iodine (Edward Group, DC - Houston, TX), etc.

Yes, there are supportive care options for COVID.
So what's the Problem?
- The Texas Board of Pharmacy put forth emergency board rule §291.30 concerning Medication Limitations on March 20, 2020.
No prescription or medication order for chloroquine, hydroxychloroquine, mefloquine, or azithromycin may be dispensed or distributed unless all the following apply:
(1) the prescription or medication order bears a written diagnosis from the prescriber consistent with the evidence for its use;
(2) the prescription or medication order is limited to no more than a fourteen (14) day supply, unless the patient was previously established on the medication prior to the effective date of this rule; and
(3) no refills may be permitted unless a new prescription or medication order is furnished.
The agency certifies that legal counsel has reviewed the emergency adoption and found it to be within the state agency's legal authority to adopt.
Filed with the Office of the Secretary of State on March 20, 2020.
This rule expired July 17, 2020. However, there are reports of pharmacies still refusing to fill physicians prescriptions related to COVID.
So where are the problems?
Centers for Disease Control (CDC) - claims there is no treatment
"There are no drugs or other therapeutics presently approved by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) to prevent or treat COVID-19.
Current clinical management includes infection prevention and control measures and supportive care, including supplemental oxygen and mechanical ventilatory support when indicated."
(April 25st CDC posting checked 9/8/20)
National Institute of Health (NIH)-
"The COVID-19 Treatment Guidelines Panel (the Panel) recommends against the use of any agents for severe acute respiratory syndrome coronavirus 2 (SARS-CoV-2) pre-exposure prophylaxis (PrEP), except in a clinical trial (AIII).
The Panel recommends against the use of any agents for SARS-CoV-2 post-exposure prophylaxis (PEP), except in a clinical trial (AIII).
(August 27th NIH posting checked 9/9/20
Note: The Texas Medical Association (TMA) is supporting this NIH policy. “The Texas Medical Association, an advocacy group for physicians, recommends against the use of the hydroxychloroquine and azithromycin for the treatment of COVID-19 outside of clinical trials. It cites the Food and Drug Administration in saying that there are presently no approved treatments for COVID-19.”
Federal Trade Commission (FTC) - Cannot advertise services
is sending out warning letters to anyone who puts the words, “prevent, treat and COVID” in the same website, even though Texas law is clear that patients have the right to seek and physicians have the right to provide alternative therapies. These rights are also supported by the World Medical Association Ethics Principals #37.
US Department of Justice (DOJ) - issue injunctions to halt services
Why aren’t government efforts going toward offering out-patient supportive care options instead of tracking people?
The $295 million Texas spent on contact tracking technology would go a long way on giving people supportive care options to keep them out of the hospitals.
Why don’t we treat this infection and get people well rather than locking down businesses, destroying lives and collapsing world economies?
Yes, there are options for COVID!
Let get well, let’s open our churches, our businesses, our schools and start to rebuild from this tragic pandemic.

”A Novel Approach to Treating COVID-19 Using Nutrition and Oxidative Therapies”
Vitamin A: 100,000 IU/day in the form of emulsified Vitamin A palmitate
Vitamin C: 1,000 mg/hour while awake in the form of ascorbic acid until bowel tolerance (loose stools) was reached
Vitamin D3: 50,000 IU/day in an emulsified form
Iodine: 25 mg/day in the form of Lugol’s solution or tableted Lugol’s solution
Nebulize a dilute solution of 0.04% hydrogen peroxide in normal saline. A sterile 250 cc bag of normal saline was injected with 3 cc of 3% food grade hydrogen peroxide and 1 cc of magnesium sulfate. The patient was instructed to draw of 3 cc of the dilute solution and nebulize it hourly until symptoms improve. Additionally, the patient was instructed to add in one drop of 5% Lugol’s solution to the dilute hydrogen peroxide mixture. As symptoms improved the frequency of nebulizing could be reduced by the patient.
If symptoms worsened and there was a concern that the patient was suffering from a more severe case, the patient was advised to come to the office and receive intravenous injections of Vitamin C and hydrogen peroxide along with intramuscular injections of ozone.
Vitamin C: 2.5 grams of sodium ascorbate (5 cc of 500 mg/cc ascorbic acid solution) mixed with an equal amount of sterile water given as an intravenous push over 2-3 minutes
Hydrogen peroxide: 30 cc of a 0.03% solution of dilute hydrogen peroxide given as an intravenous push over 2-3 minutes
Ozone: 20 cc of 18 mcg/cc ozone (as an oxygen/ozone gas mixture) given in each buttock as an intramuscular injection
Yes, Ozone works to treat COVID-19!
Says clinical trials from China, Italy, Spain and Cuba.
August 26, 2020 Cuba,
"At this meeting, the results of a clinical trial with the use of ozonetherapy by rectal route in patients confirmed with SARS-CoV-2, who had mild and moderate symptoms, were also presented. As detailed by the Doctor of Science Sarahi Mendoza Castaño, Director of Research, Development and Innovation of the National Center for Scientific Research, it was evidenced that "the association of the ozone therapy with the conventional treatment of the COVID-19 increased by 40% the number of patients with negative PCR test on the fifth day".
May 17, 2020 Italy. The Scientific Society of Oxygen Ozone Therapy (SIOOT) just release a comparative report stating , "Oxygen ozone therapy is a success for Covid-19 in Italy – 94% of non‐intubated and 73% of intubated patients rapidly recover. By comparison, only 20% of NYC’s intubated patients recover at all.
... In NYC 80% of intubated patients ultimately die . Only 17% of intubated patients on oxygen-‐ozone therapy died. Similarly, abc7.com reports that NYC’s intubated patients average 11-‐21 days to become extubated. The oxygen-‐ozone group’s extubates became so in only 5 days on average. Click here for report.
