Dr. Mollica explains that ozone is the only gas that carries a negative charge. Inflammation an infections are positively charged. When a decayed area is bathed in ozone gas it creates a negative charge in that area so that minerals in the body which carry a positive charge can be attracted to the area and re-mineralize the site of decay.

As Johnny says of the piece: “Field recordings captured in Taiwan, from immediate vicinity of childhood home in the city to the countryside. (in order of appearance) : Street market vendors chatter and canned pop music punctuate. Traffic sounds originate from the intersection directly at the corner of my family home – pretty much a constant background sound. Ebb and flow of Kaohsiung city. Repetition of life – signified by various type of drones surrounding us.”
