June 15 was the official launch data for issue 13 of The NZ Journal of Natural Medicine as well as the new online Natural Medicine Resource and Events Directory http://natural-medicine.directory/.

Held in Auckland’s Mount Eden War Memorial Hall, this event was compered by the publisher of The NZ Journal of Natural Medicine Jonathan Eisen and featured four guest speakers.

First to speak was Dr. Wayne McCarthy who shared his experiences as a naturopathic physician specialising in ozone therapy.  Dr. McCarthy practises at Global Health Clinics in Takapuna, Auckland and at the Northland Environmental Health Centre in Whangarei.  He described the large range of conditions in which ozone can be applied in medicine, particularly infections and as a treatment for conditions in which there is poor circulation. One condition in which ozone can be used to good effect is diabetic gangrene.  Ozone can provide oxygen to revitalise oxygen-starved tissues which are succumbing to infection and once this medical crisis (which could lead to amputation, if not successfully treated)  has been resolved, EDTA chelation therapy can be used to reduce plaque deposits in the blood vessels and improve circulation.
