Dr. Shallenberger has been practicing medicine since 1973.  He has developed and patented the first method using VO2/VCO2 analysis to measure mitochondrial function in a clinical setting known as Bio-Energy Testing®, and has written two books on the importance of measuring and optimizing mitochondrial function.  Bursting With Energy describes how decreased mitochondrial function causes aging.  The Type 2 Diabetes Breakthrough describes how decreased mitochondrial function is the root cause of type 2 diabetes.

Dr. Shallenberger has been teaching ozone therapy to medical practitioners since 1991.  He has authored two peer reviewed papers on the use of ozone in clinical medicine.  He has authored an instruction manual for doctors entitled, The Principles and Applications of Ozone Therapy and an instruction manual for lay people, The Ozone Miracle. He is the innovator of Prolozone® therapy, a method of eliminating pain and rejuvenating degenerated joints.  He is the founder and president of The American Academy of Ozonotherapy.  He is devoted to the prevention and treatment of aging and age related diseases by improving mitochondrial function.

Contributions to Orthomolecular Medicine

Dr. Shallenberger has focused his career on measuring and optimizing mitochondrial function as the key to successful orthomolecular therapy.  Oxygen is the most fundamental orthomolecular nutrient.  Dr. Shallenberger measures and optimizes oxygen consumption as the first goal toward optimal health and wellness.
