How does Prolozone work?

Prolozone combines the powers of homeopathy and vitamin injections with the healing power of ozone. A homeopathic cocktail and ozone injection are put into the joints directly.  Ozone reacts almost instantly with the membranes of the cell.  This oxidation of the membrane jump starts the cell, increasing energy production and utilization.  This reaction produces a large amount of powerful healing chemicals called cytokines.  Healing begins instantly, and the effects linger.

By following up an injection of homeopathy with an injection of ozone, we are stimulating your body to heal itself.  Ozone is an immune system regulator, increases antioxidant protection, and is a powerful mitochondrial stimulant.

Ozone is an unstable molecule, however it increases oxygen intake into each cell in your body. So, you are better able to metabolize ATP, which your body uses as a source for energy.  As your body uses energy more efficiently, more healing takes place and the body is able to repair itself at a faster pace.

Prolozone injections can be used to treat a wide number of ailments, and research is even being done on the effects of Ozone therapy in slowing the onset of Alzheimer’s.  Prolozone can be injected many different places in the body.  It effectively treats muscle soreness, aches and pains, arthritis.

What To Expect

  1. You may experience some redness, heat sensation, bruising, swelling and soreness and/or pain at the injection site. In order to reduce this, we highly recommend taking ibuprofen right after leaving the clinic, and at night before bed, and apply ice or heat to the treated area. Alternatively, we can provide homeopathic or herbal remedies to reduce pain or inflammation.
  1. You must come in for an acupuncture appointment 2-3 days after your Prolozone Treatment. This will help proliferate the area and reduce any remaining side effects.

    I have been seeing Dr. Soto since Oct 2020.   I had a bad disc in my neck and back.  She has helped my pain go away for good. She is presently working on other issues, such arthritis in my fingers and hands etc.   She has also helped my wife as well.  I highly recommend Dr. Soto, she is very professional and her prolozone therapy works great!

    My husband Jim has had several prolozone treatments for his hip and lower back with Dr. Angela Soto with excellent results. Angela is very thorough, skilled, personable and worked tirelessly to find the root cause of his pain. He drives 200 miles for these treatments and the drive is worth every mile. He is in less pain and has more flexibility that he has had in years. She and her staff are very passionate about what they do and could not be more help. I highly recommend Blue Root Acupuncture.

    “I started with Blue Root & Dr. Soto in 2013, for migraines, back pain and sinus issues. Dr. Soto has changed my health and my outlook on medicine. Allergies?  Sinus Infections?  Bronchitis?  -- nothing, the prescribed herbs and acupuncture treatments have resolved my issues.  It's amazing, it took following her instructions, going to regular visits and taking my herbs consistently; but her approach works. More recently I started having severe neck pain; the keep you up at night type of pain, it felt like my neck was collapsing in on itself.  Dr. soto recommend her Prolozone Injection Therapy.  It was 2 sets of injections, approx. 2 weeks apart, with visits 2-3 days afterwards for both.  She and her staff really shined, the procedures were done professionally, it was stress-free and they were both done in-office.  The injection site was numb for a few hours and I had to take it real easy for a couple days; but after that - nothing.  No pain, no discomfort, or weird noises when i move my head around.  It's been 6 months, and everything is still great... no re-occurrence, my neck really has healed.  I wish i'd had the Prolozone injections sooner.”

    “As a patient at Blue Root for nearly 8 yrs, I have experienced healing on many levels. Migraines, vertigo and sciatica we're what took me there, and Dr. Angela Soto healed me of those terrible things!  Now I am happy to say that I have had two Prolozone Injection treatments for a bum right knee, that seemed doomed for surgery, and now almost completely pain free and feeling much stronger! I tell people all the time that Angela has saved me from poor health and I am so thankful for her amazing healing abilities and genuine care for her patients!  Please try her!  And always thanks for her professional team and relaxing environment!”

    As a patient of Dr. Angela Soto I have been treated for many different ailments; migraines, vertigo, sciatica, etc. She has cured me of all those and now I'm excited about the Prolozone injections to heal my bum knee! After just two injections, my right knee is so much better! Almost all pain is gone and I feel it getting stronger each day!! Super news because I'm a hairdresser and was looking at a lot of down time if I had had to have surgery. Thanks again Angela! Prolozone is the way to go!!

    I have suffered for over two years with plantar fasciitis. Some days were so painful I literally could not stand on my feet. I tried chiropractic adjustments which helped minimally, and my MD only offered pain pills. NO THANKS! A friend referred me to Dr. Soto and my only regret is not coming to see her sooner. After two prolozone injections in one heel, and three in the worst one, I am pain free. I’m moving on to my knees now and thanks to Dr. Soto I’m getting healing (not just bandaid treatments) for my arthritis. This skeptic is a reformed believer in acupuncture. If you live with chronic pain, or you just want to live a healthier life, do yourself a favor and don’t procrastinate like I did. Dr. Soto is a compassionate healer.

    Been treating with Dr. Soto for almost 5 years.  Dr. Soto has changed my health and my outlook on medicine. It's amazing, if you follow her instructions, go to regular visits and take the herbs consistently; it just works. About 6 months ago, Dr. Soto recommended her Prolozone Injection Therapy, for my severe neck pain. It was 2 sets of injections, approx. 2 weeks apart, with visits 2-3 days afterwards for both. The injection site was numb that night and I had to take it real easy for a couple days; but after that - nothing. No pain or no discomfort - it's as if I never even had a problem. Even after a few months, everything is still great... no re-occurrence, my neck really has healed. I wish i'd done the Prolozone injections sooner.

    The relief from pain in my knee, hip and neck has been unbelievable. The overall feeling of well-being from all the different treatment options is so exciting and joyful and because of those different options I have so much hope that I can continue on a path of healing without surgeries and drugs. What a pleasure to be fully aware of my body as it seeks its own path to natural healing. Dr Soto- thank you for your care and devotion and girls-I am so proud of you and to know you. I love you all! My husband and I have been receiving regular treatments at Blue Root with Dr. Soto for over a year and have seen some amazing results. The staff is knowledgeable and friendly. Angela goes above and beyond to understand the patient and what is really needed.

    I was desperate, with a torn meniscus and could hardly walk. Very painful! I had a scheduled motorcycle trip that I did not want to miss. So I agreed to the Prolozone injection into my knee joint. Within a minute after the injection I had no pain and full range of motion!!! I stood up and hugged Dr. Angela! I'm not saying I was healed, but I had no pain and full range of motion. And I fully enjoyed my motorcycle trip. It's time for my next injection and I am looking forward to healing and avoiding surgery. I highly recommend her and the procedure.
