Barcelona has been enjoying the perks of having Dr.Humberto Loscertales in their medical scene. The famous internal medicine specialist has been the authority and top practitioner of the Ozone therapy for the past 16 years in the Spanish city.
This December, Dr. Loscertales visits the Philippines to introduce one of the most recognized alternative treatment in the US and Europe. A proud alumnus of the Barcelona Autonomic University where he studied Medicine, Dr.Loscertales is highly regarded by the academe for his various doctoral courses, logging 100 teaching hours in the same university.
His academic career reached new levels when he finishedhis International MBA,starting in Barcelona Ramon Llull university for twoyears and an intensive third year in Manhattan College NY. Dr. Loscertalesalsopracticed medicine in various hospitals in Barcelona while juggling all his academic appointments. He practiced as an attendingphysicanfortheIntensive Care Department at theHospital Clinic, for the Traumatology & General Surgery, at the Can Ruti General Hospital, and for Haematology& Internal Medicine at the Hospital De Sant Pau.
Apparently, the practice of Ozone therapy for more than a decade had its benefits, as Dr.Loscertales exudes his youthful vibe while preaching on this new treatment technique with so much passion.
“We have an exceptional medical tool that increases our efficiency on the solution of medical problems, normally in a complementary way with other medical strategies.In some cases, it is the only medical tool/treatment that can provide a good solution to diseases like: Ankylosing spondylitis, Post-traumatic synovitis, Arthrosis and other degenerative diseases.”
With the strong belief that this non-invasive treatment responds to various medical problems, an association of physicians was created with Dr. Loscertales as one of the founding members in 2006. The association was known as the Asosacion Espanola de Profesionales en Ozonoterapia(AEPROMO). This organization spearheaded the establishment of proper standards and norms on the correct use of Ozone in medicine and to organize the international protocol of dosage and clinical indications of the ozone therapy.
Ozonehas recently been making headlines as it is highly regarded to get impressive results to alleviate chronic pain and it is also a tool for anti-aging. As early as 30 years old to as late as 60 years old, clients go in and out of the Ozone therapy clinics to have their cells regenerated by the O3 element.
The treatment which lasts for only about 45 minutes per session, is now available at the Ozone Therapy Center, Ground Floor of the King’s Court Building 1, along Chino Roces Avenue in Makati.
