WANDERLUST | Overcoming illnesses naturally 

Dr Cols Badoy and Dr Neri Tan, OzonMed Davao doctors in charge

APART from food and our daily provisions, nature has supplied us with many amazing gifts, including its ability to cure diseases. Some people find wellness in consuming organic produce, others depend on the power of water – from waterfall misting to immersing in saline-rich seas. Others have found the use of ozone, which is a form of oxygen, the most abundant element on earth, used in either gas or liquid forms to treat medical conditions including cancer.

This is the kind of natural solution to medical problems that OzonMed Wellness Center wants to alternatively offer to their clients. 

A one-stop total wellness solution, OzonMed Wellness Center opened its first branch in Mindanao last January 5 along Gen Luna Street in Davao City. 

“It was Ozone theraphy that helped me overcome my cancer,” said Dr Rio Barrales, medical director of OzonMed Wellness Center. She was diagnosed with stage 3 breast cancer in November 2007, after a mammogram revealed a lump on her breast. 

“It was difficult because as a doctor, I had head knowledge of what was about to transpire,” she shared. 

Fending off conventional treatments, knowing the adverse reactions caused by chemotherapy and radiation to the body, mind and spirit, she searched for alternative treatments, including ozone therapy, abroad.

“It’s really hard because it happened to me, and I’m a doctor. But the Lord was with me every step of the way,” she added, proving that faith also helped her in her cancer journey. 

By 2012, she declared herself as a cancer “overcomer” since she didn’t survive chemotherapy, instead she “overcame” the disease using natural treatment paired with Biblical encouragement that helped her healing. 

“I lifted everything up to the Lord, who is the great healer.” she said. 

As a way of giving back, Barrales shared the knowledge about ozone therapy technology from Germany to the Philippines and opened the first OzonMed Wellness Center in 2020.

“This is what OzonMed is all about. To convey my ministry and advocacy in informing my patients that there are other modalities treating cancer and that they have the right to choose their preferred treatment because it is their body that receives the treatment,” said Barrales.
