Is Radiation Actually Good For You? The Hormesis Effect, The Healing Power of Radioactive Stones, Ozone Therapy & Much More With Jane Goldberg.       If you heard my podcast "", recorded at , then you may have heard - towards the tail end of that podcast - how I was about to wander across to a place called to undergo a cutting-edge ozone sauna recovery treatment with something called a .           HOCATT stands for “Hyperthermic Ozone and Carbonic Acid Transdermal Technology” and the machine acts as an ozone steam sauna, in which you sit with just their head exposed to the air, while your body receives the benefits of an infusion of ozone, carbon dioxide, steam, photon light and oxygen, all while undergoing Pulsed Electromagnetic Field Therapy (PEMF).         While I was there, the proprietor of La Casa, Jane Goldberg, commented that she wasn't too concerned about the mild amount of ozone one might breathe in while using this device. I asked her why, and she handed me a book. The book is called .         Yep, I know. Woo-woo alert.         But on the plane ride home from New York, I read the book, and it was actually quite compelling. Turns out that for thousands of years people have been treating pain, injuries, and disease with low-radioactive stones.  Jane -  a New York based psychoanalyst, and holistic health consultant - and her co-author, the late Jay Gutierrez, who was a noted Native American healer and CEO of in Pritchett, Colorado, talk in the book about rediscovering a forgotten ancient science that was supposedly once well-known to our ancestors: the healing power of low-level radioactivity.           It also turns out that the concept of using low-dose radiation for therapeutic purposes, called in medical literature "radiation hormesis," has 100 years of solid scientific research behind it, and thousands of medical studies to support it. It is easy, affordable, and highly effective. If you're like most people, you're afraid of radiation, and all it implies. Yet, in other countries all over the world, millions of people have benefited from using low-level radiation on everything from tennis elbow, joint pain and arthritis, to far more serious illnesses such as multiple sclerosis, spinal meningitis, autism, stroke, macular degeneration, heart disease and cancer. The book discusses an inexpensive delivery system that brings this powerful, proven healing modality to all of us, within the comfort of our own homes: the concept of radiation hormesis and low-level radioactive natural stones.           So could radiation actually cause you to live longer and be healthier?
