|Jim Girard brings more than 30 years of subtle energy research and experimentation to the team, which led to the introduction of the original BioCharger concept in 1993. In 1988, Jim was privileged to have studied under Dr. Orville Fitz, a protégé of Nikola Tesla which led to Jim’s experimentation with Tesla coil and multiple wave oscillation (MWO) technologies. He then experimented with combining various Nobel and Inert gas filled tubes to incorporate the visible light spectrum and applied the concept of pulsing frequencies from Rife and Lakhovsky to form a unique and hybrid subtle energy platform. In a few short years, he had accomplished what no others previously had; discovering how to unlock the benefits of multiple subtle energies simultaneously and wirelessly.
Jim co-founded ABT in 2013 and continues his research and is an instrumental member of product development. He is recognized as an authority subtle energy field and maintains an active calendar with podcasts and documentaries on the subject.

My brother developed a rare brain cancer and became a guinea pig for the medical institutions. It left him without the same critical thinking processes he once had. So we researched alternatives in hopes of finding something to help.
In the middle of nursing school, I came across ozone therapy. I was hooked. How could something work with gangrene, infertility, strokes, and lyme disease? It really messed with my head at the time but I quickly became an enthusiast and advocate.
But I noticed a big problem. The research was there, but it was disorganized and all over the place. It was near impossible for the average person to parse out. And I was fascinated with the research and potential.
And so I took it upon myself to become a journalist on behalf of ozone therapy. My work has rippled into 10,000 more doctors practicing with ozone therapy and hundreds of thousands of patients receiving ozone treatments.
Now I own Simply O3, an ozone equipment company and work to educate and get the word out on ozone. My mission in life is to reduce suffering in the world.
