Ozone therapy is a form of alternative medicine treatment that purports to increase the amount of oxygen in the body through the introduction of ozone. Various techniques have been suggested, with purported benefits including the treatment of cancer, AIDS, and multiple sclerosis, among others.
There is no credible, peer reviewed evidence to support the use of ozone as a type of medical therapy.
Ozone therapy is a unique form of therapy that both heals and detoxifies at the same time. It used to treat a variety of chronic disease including cardiovascular disease, diabetes, Lyme disease, chronic hepatitis, herpes, chronic fatigue states, chemical sensitivity, macular degeneration, chronic bladder conditions, colitis, auto-immune diseases, and Crohn’s disease.
What Is Ozone?
The oxygen you breathe is present in the air as a pair of oxygen atoms. This is the most stable form of oxygen, and it’s colorless. Ozone is a blue colored form of oxygen (it’s what makes the sky blue), and unlike regular oxygen, it is composed of three oxygen atoms instead of two.It is the addition of the third oxygen atom that makes ozone “supercharged” oxygen, and gives it all of its remarkable medical properties.
The use of ozone to treat various medical conditions was first developed in Germany in the early 1950’s. Today, medical ozone therapy is common throughout Europe, and its use has gradually been spreading in America over the last 25 years.
Ozone Is Toxic Isn’t It?
Anything, including water and oxygen, is toxic if given in amounts that exceed the body’s capacity to utilize it. Ozone is found naturally in the body. The white cells make it as part of the immune response.Pure medical grade ozone, when it is used according to the established medical guidelines, has a safety record that is unparalleled.
Medical Properties Of Ozone:
Ozone has five properties that account for why it works so well not only for macular degeneration, but also for most other chronic age related conditions as well:
Ozone is a potent regulator of the immune system. This means that when the immune system is overactive (as in auto-immune disease), ozone will calm it down. Conversely, when the immune system is under active as in cancer, AIDS, and chronic infections, ozone will stimulate it. This unique ability of ozone stems from its action on the membranes of white cells that causes them to produce immune related messenger molecules called cytokines. Examples of cytokines are gamma interferon, interleukin-2, colony stimulating factor, and TNF-alpha just to name a few.
Ozone stimulates increased uptake of oxygen by stimulating the enzyme diphosphoglycerate (DPG). DPG enables the release of oxygen from the hemoglobin molecule so that it can be taken up into the cell.In the absence of an adequate amount of DPG, our cells become starved for oxygen.This is a common problem in diabetics.
Ozone improves circulation. It does this by enhancing the flow characteristics of blood as a liquid. This effect enables more of the oxygen carrying hemoglobin to reach the capillaries where ultimately the cells will receive more of the oxygen they require. Many patients with chronic inflammatory conditions have impaired circulation.
Ozone increases antioxidant protection more than any other therapy including vitamin C. Most people with chronic disease have deficient antioxidant defenses.
Ozone is a powerful mitochondrial stimulant. The fundamental underlying cause behind all degenerative disease from diabetes to heart disease to cancer is decreased mitochondrial energy production. Ozone can often correct this problem.
How Is Ozone Used Medically?
Autotherapy is the most common, and in most cases the most effective way ozone is administered. The patient sits in a chair and has from 6-12 ounces of blood removed into a sterilized bottle.Then ozone is injected into the bottle, and the bottle is gently shaken, allowing the red and white blood cells to take up the ozone. The ozonated blood is then returned to the body. The entire procedure takes about 30-40 minutes.
Ozone therapy consists of the introduction of ozone into the body via various methods, usually involving its mixture with various gases and liquids before injection, with potential routes including the vagina, rectum, intramuscular (in a muscle), subcutaneously (under the skin), or intravenously (directly into veins). Ozone can also be introduced via autohemotherapy, in which blood is drawn from the patient, exposed to ozone and re-injected into the patient.
This therapy has been proposed for use in various diseases, including cancer, AIDS, multiple sclerosis, arthritis, heart disease, Alzheimer’s dementia, Lyme disease, though supportive evidence for these applications is limited. Theories about the ability of ozone to kill tumor cells with oxygen have no credible scientific basis. For treatment of HIV/AIDS, although ozone deactivates the viral particles outside the body, there is no evidence of benefit for living patients.
The United States Food and Drug Administration initially stated in 1976, and reiterated its position in 2006, that when inhaled, ozone is a toxic gas which has no demonstrated safe medical application, though their position statements primarily deal with its potential for causing inflammation and pulmonary edema in the lungs. Their second major contention is that in order for ozone to be effective as a germicide, it must be present in a concentration far greater than can be safely tolerated by humans or other animals.
Ozone has been suggested for use in dentistry, but existing evidence does not support its use.
One review found tentative evidence that ozone injection is an effective treatment for herniated discs.
There is some controversy about its use by athletes in an attempt to increase performance; although its use is not disallowed in and of itself, it can be mixed with other banned substances for administration prior to injection.
Is Ozone Therapy For Me?
This is a decision for a doctor who is trained and experienced in the medical use of ozone. Some conditions simply will not clear up unless ozone is used, and of course many conditions will clear up without ozone. Because of its many therapeutic properties, ozone can be used as part of a therapeutic plan for almost every disease.
It is invaluable in the treatment of heart disease and circulatory disorders.Chronic infections such as hepatitis-C, herpes, Lyme, and AIDS respond very favorably to ozone.It is also very helpful in chronic fatigue syndrome, fibromyalgia, and autoimmune diseases.
It is important to realize that ozone therapy is not a panacea or some kind of magic bullet. Although it is often an indispensable modality, it is only rarely effective by itself. In the great majority of cases it must be combined with an individualized program of other alternative and natural therapies, such as nutrition and detoxification.
Ozone oxygen therapy is on of the most powerful and versatile therapies know today.research shows it throughout the twentieth century, mostly in Europe and other parts of the world. the action of ozone has beneficial effects on every part of the body .some of the effects are bacterial fungal and viral inactivation, circulatory enhancement, disruption of malignant tumor metabolism, and stimulation of oxygen metabolism.

How Does Ozone Therapy Work?
Ozone Therapy - Inactivation of bacteria, viruses, fungi, yeast and protozoa:
Ozone Therapy disrupts the integrity of the bacterial cell envelope through oxidation of the phospholipids and lipoproteins. In fungi, ozone inhibits cell growth at certain stages. With viruses, the ozone damages the viral capsid and upsets the reproductive cycle by disrupting the virus-to-cell contact with peroxidation. The weak enzyme coatings on cells which make them vulnerable to invasion by viruses make them susceptible to oxidation and elimination from the body, which then replaces them with healthy cells.
Ozone Therapy - Enhancement of circulation:
In circulatory disease, a clumping of red blood cells hinders blood flow through the small capillaries and decreases oxygen absorption due to reduced surface area. Ozone reduces or eliminates clumping and red cell flexibility is restored, along with oxygen carrying ability. Oxygenation (Oxygen Therapy) of the tissues increases as the arterial partial pressure increases and viscosity decreases. Ozone Therapy also oxidizes the plaque in arteries, allowing the removal of the breakdown products, unclogging the blood vessels.
Ozone Therapy - Stimulation of oxygen metabolism:
Ozone Therapy causes an increase in the red blood cell glycolysis rate. This leads to the stimulation of 2,3-diphosphoglycerate (2,3-DPG) which leads to an increase in the amount of oxygen released to the tissues. Ozone activates the Krebs cycle by enhancing oxidative carboxylation of pyruvate, stimulating production of ATP. Ozone Therapy also causes a significant reduction in NADH and helps to oxidize cytochrome C. There is a stimulation of the production of the enzymes which act as free radical scavengers and cell wall protectors: glutathione peroxidase, catalase, and superoxide dismutase. Production of prostacyline, a vasodilator, is also induced by ozoneFormation of peroxides: Ozone reacts with the unsaturated fatty acids of the lipid layer in cellular membranes, forming hydro peroxides. There is a synergistic effect with cellular-formed H2O2. Lipid peroxidation products include alkoxyl and peroxyl radicals, singlet oxygen, ozonides, carbonides, carbonyls, alkanes and alkenes.
Ozone Therapy - Dissolution of malignant tumors:
Ozone Therapy inhibits tumor metabolism. In addition, ozone oxidizes the outer lipid layer of malignant cells and destroys them through cell lysis (breakdown). Phagocytes produce H2O2 and hydroxyl to kill bacteria and viruses. The generation of hydroxyl by killer cells is critical to their cytotoxic capability. Ozone stimulates conversion of arginine to citrulline, nitrite and nitrate by phagocytes, promoting their action on tumors.
Ozone Therapy - Activation of the immune system:
Ozone Therapy administered at a concentration of between 30 and 55 ug/cc causes the greatest increase in the production of interferon and the greatest output of tumor necrosis factor (TNF) and interleukin-2. The production of interleukin-2 launches an entire cascade of subsequent immunological reactions.
Ozone Therapy for Prevention:
Ozone Therapy is a powerful therapeutic tool for curing disease, but it is equally important for the PREVENTION of disease. Hundreds of different diseases named by allopathy are but symptoms of one underlying cause. That cause, as proven by two-time Nobel Prizewinner Dr. Otto Warburg, is hypoxia, or oxygen starvation at the cellular level. This is the cause of degenerative disease (cancer, arthritis, atherosclerosis, multiple sclerosis, rheumatism, etc.).
Ozone Therapy both treats and prevents most communicable diseases as well (mumps, measles, influenza, cholera, tropical fevers, etc.). We hear much in the media about necrotizing fasciitis, hamburger disease, Ebola virus, toxoplasmosis, tuberculosis, etc., and their incurability, yet all these diseases are treated by ozone therapy. Regular use of ozone can provide high levels of immunity from most common diseases, and relegate immunization to the dustbin of history. Our present allopathic health system is disintegrating under financial stress, and it can be replaced by prevention through the use of ozone, supplemented by ozone injection for serious cases, and emergency room hospitals for accident victims. This system will be far less expensive than our present system, where 90% of our health dollar is spent in the last year of life, trying to undo a lifetime of toxic buildup.
The human body is 2/3 water. Of that, 90% is lymph and 10% is blood. The cell functions by burning sugar in oxygen to provide energy. The waste products are carbon dioxide and water. If there is insufficient oxygen at the cellular level, for whatever reason, the burn will be incomplete, and carbon monoxide and lactic acid will be formed. The body cannot quickly rid itself of monoxide; it prevents hemoglobin from picking up fresh oxygen, and the body temperature is lowered. The lactic acid will build up in the system, clogging the nerve pathways, eventually calcifying and causing degeneration. More oxygen is required to come in and oxidize these toxins, but if it is not available, they build up. The blood will carry a heavy load of sludge, and toxins will be deposited in the fat. The water that surrounds each cell gets dirtier and dirtier. Disease is the result. This is where ozone shines -- in eliminating toxicity from the body. Ozone Terapy taken on a daily basis, will, over time, clean all the fluid of the body, safely.
Women have an advantage, in that vaginal insufflation requires no preparation, and can be administered for very long periods of time, up to an hour. The gas will usually find its way into the uterus, out the Fallopian tubes and then into the abdominal cavity. Yeast problems and pelvic inflammatory disease (PID) can be addressed in this way. This is also a good way of getting ozone into the lymph system.
For men, cleaning the lymph is not as easy, and requires use of a body suit or a steam cabinet. The body suit is a less-than-popular esthetic experience of the moist heat, the pores are open, and the capillaries are dilated. The ozone enters through the skin and oxidizes toxins in the fat, the lymph and the blood, including adrenaline. The oxidized toxins are sweated back out, avoiding the dump of toxins to the liver and colon which can bring on the symptoms of toxin shock. Instead the person emerges from the steam cabinet feeling extremely relaxed and mellow. This is an ideal way of counteracting the stress of the day.
Ozone Therapy as an Alternative Cancer Treatment:
Oxygen will revitalize the moribund cancer physiology temporarily. This is the effect that is well known in yeast fermentation, called "the Pasteur effect."
Ozone does not do this, because of its extra oxidative power. Instead it blows a hole (oxidizes) in the cancer cell wall, because it has no protective enzymes (glutathione peroxidase, superoxide dismutase, catalase, reductase).
The effect of ozone on cancer was published in "Science" by F. Sweet, et al. in 1980, showing that at up to 70 ug/ml, there was increasing destruction of cancer cells, with no harm to good cells.
Cells become cancerous because of impaired respiration, which can result from hundreds of causes. Some of those causes are dietary. Acidity around cells does not necessarily cause them to grow out of control. It only happens if their respiration has already been so impaired (below 40% of normal requirements) that they are forced to ferment their sugar to survive.
Once they are in this state of fermentation, they are throwing off the acidic wastes carbon monoxide and lactic acid. These acidic wastes cause a reaction in passing T-cells and macrophages, the secretion of enzyme growth factors, which they normally do for cell repair in an area of damaged cells.
Stimulated by this EGF, the fermentating cells begin to replicate wildly, ignoring the normal governing signals which prevent this. As they grow and produce more and more acid wastes, the situation becomes a vicious cycle of acid/EGF/wild growth.
- AEROBIC VS. ANAEROBIC (or) OXIDATION VS. FERMENTATION:
A nurse who works in medical research said to me, "It's so simple. I don't know why I never thought of it. When we're working with cell cultures in the lab, if we want cells to mutate, we turn down the oxygen. To stop them, we turn the oxygen back up." -Ed McCabe
"Lack of cellular oxygen supply is probably the most common cause of cell injury and may also be the ultimate mechanism of damage." - Robbins and Cotran (W.B. Saunders) Pathologic Basis of Disease.
"Cancer, above all other diseases, has countless secondary causes, but there is only one prime cause. The prime cause of cancer is the replacement of the normal oxygen respiration of body cells by an anaerobic cell respiration." -- Dr. Otto Warburg, Nobel Laureate. "Since Warburg's discovery, this difference in respiration has remained the most fundamental (and some say, only) physiological difference consistently found between normal and cancer cells. Using cell culture studies, I decided to examine the differential responses of normal and cancer cells to changes in the oxygen environment. The results that I found were rather remarkable. I found that high 02 tensions were lethal to cancer tissue, 95 percent being very toxic, where as in general, normal tissues were not harmed by high oxygen tensions. Indeed, some normal tissues were found to require high 02 tensions. It does seem to demonstrate the possibility that if the 02 tensions in cancer tissues can be elevated, then the cancer tissue may be able to be killed selectively, as it seems that the cancer cells are incapable of handling a high 02 environment." - J.B. Kizer:Biochemist/Physicist, Gungnir Research, Portsmith, OH.
More about Ozone Therapy & How It Heals:
Healing Ozone Healthy cells need oxygen. Most infections occur because of the invasion of anaerobes that do not thrive in an oxygen-rich environment. Deprivation of oxygen to the body, for example through polluted air, sedentary lifestyle or junk food diet which require a lot of oxygenation for elimination, encourages anaerobic microbes to proliferate. Overgrowth of harmful microbes will lead to breakdown of enzymatic reactions, overload of metabolic wastes and ultimately cell death. Under similar anaerobic conditions, cells tend to mutate to more primitive life forms, turning from aerobic to anaerobic respiration for energy synthesis.
Nobel prize winner Dr. Otto Warburg in 1928 demonstrated that the primary cause of cancer is the replacement of oxygen in the respiratory chemistry of normal cells by the fermentation of sugar. The growth of cancer cells is a fermentation process which can be initiated only in the relative absence of oxygen. Ozone is one of nature's most powerful oxidants. It is used in water purification and sewage treatment and is now being applied medically in Europe to treat everything from wounds and colitis to cancer, stroke and AIDS. Yes, the same ozone in the atmospheric layer that is responsible for shielding off ultraviolet light from the sun and oxidizing the pollutants in the air can be produced from medical oxygen via electrical discharge. It is administered as an ozone/oxygen (03/02) gas mixture. According to the dosage and concentration range, medical ozone is a pharmaceutical agent that exerts specific properties and a well-defined range of efficacy. Properties of Medical Ozone At the higher range of concentration (three and a half to five per cent ozone in one/oxygen mixture) ozone exhibits a strong germicidal effect by oxidative destruction. The oxidative power of ozone has proven to be effective in destroying lipid-enveloped viruses such as Epstein Barr, herpes, cytomegalovirus and viruses that cause hepatitis. One recent study indicates that ozone treatment was 97 to 100 per cent effective in destroying HIV in vitro.(Journal of American Society of Hematology, October 1, 1992).
At concentrations below approximately three and a half per cent, the three main restitution properties of ozone can be observed by its oxidative influence on the oxygen metabolism, the induction of specific enzymes and the activation of immunocompetent cells. It is these systemic influences of ozone that cause it to be such a potent therapeutic tool, because most of the disease affecting humans today can be traced to diminishing levels of oxygen and a compromised immune system. Ozone Improves Oxygen Metabolism Ozone improves the delivery of oxygen to hypoxic tissues, as well as reactivating the oxygen metabolism of cells.
The mechanisms of these systemic actions involve both direct and indirect processes. Ozone directly changes the electric charges of the erythrocyte membranes increasing the flexibility and plasticity of the erythrocytes, thus enhancing the flow properties of the blood and the transport of oxygen to the cells and tissues. This is especially applicable in arterial occlusion disease whereby "pile of coins" erythrocyte formation is typical. The indirect mechanism consists of ozonolysis, i.e., the ionizing reaction of ozone with the unsaturated fatty acids in the cellular membrane producing peroxides. It must be pointed out that ozone behave as an ion, not a free radical under normal physiological blood pH and therefore no radical chain reaction occurs to cause oxidative damages. The reaction activates the enzyme 2.3 Diphosphoglycerate (2,3-DPG) in hemoglobin to release oxygen. This is of particular importance to diabetics in which 2,3-DPG is depressed. Ozone Induces Specific Enzymes; the formation of short-lived peroxides at the membrane are injected into the cell and are removed by the enzyme glutathione peroxidase. Therefore, it is recommended to supplement with vitamin E, N-acetyl-systeine and selenium during ozone therapy to support the glutathione detoxification system. In addition, the enhancement of the glycolysis enzymatic pathway results in an increase in adenosine triphosphate production (energy currency of the cells). This is significant in the management of stroke and burns. The elevation of adenosine triphosphate synthesis will decrease perifocal edema formed in the injured site minimizing tissue necrosis and subsequent scarring. But this is effective only when ozone is administered within the first 24 to 48 hours. In Germany, many ambulances are equipped with ozone and it is injected intravenously in patients who have just suffered a stroke.
Ozone Activates Immune System; it is well documented that ozone can activate monocyte and lymphocytes and induced the production of an array of cytokines such as interleukin, interferon, tumor-necrosis factor. (The Journal of International Medical Research 1994) Its ability to elicit endogenous production of cytokines and its lack of toxicity make ozone an indispensable therapeutic modality since today's most devastating diseases are characterized by immune depression such as chronic viral diseases, cancer and AIDS. Of course restoration of the immune system depends on a total approach of detoxification, lifestyle modification and supportive therapies. Route of Administration The are several ways to administer ozone, depending upon the condition being treated. Autohemotherapy, which involves bland treatment exvivo of blood with ozone and prompt reinfusion into the donor is the most popular procedure among German physicians. Other methods include direct infusion of a gaseous ozone/oxygen mixture either intravenously, or intra-arterially (particularly in critical limbs ischemia). It has been proven that even direct delivery of ozone into the blood vessels has very low risk factors. No air which contains nitrogen ever enters the body, so an air embolus cannot occur. Colorectal insufflation of ozone/oxygen, much like an enema, has been used to treat colitis, fistula and colon cancer. Ozone is also excellent for topical treatment of infected wounds, ulcers and burns, especially those that are difficult to heal.
Therapeutic Indication - The modern development of ozone application in medicine began in the 1950s in Europe and gradually spread throughout Europe to Australia, Israel, Cuba, Brazil a Columbia. As far back as World War 1, ozone was used medically to treat wounds and other infections. Over 5000 physicians worldwide routinely use ozone in their medical practice. I have personally used ozone in my own practice and found it to be an effective therapy. When it is incorporated into a holistic approach of cleansing there is virtually no known side effect of ozone treatment if it is applied properly. However, since ozone therapy is dose-dependant, it should be administered with supervision. Specific therapeutic applications of ozone include the treatment of vascular disease such as stroke, obstructive arteriopathy, venous insufficiency, cancer, acute and chronic viral diseases, ulcers, infected wounds, gangrenes, burns, inflammatory bowel disease such as Crohn' disease, ulcerative colitis and spinal disc problems. It is also used in dentistry as a disinfectant and in pediatrics for the treatment of viral and bacterial infections of the intestines. In geriatrics, its principal indication is in circulatory disorders. In particular the increase of oxygen supply to the brain is of great benefit. Ozone, with all its miraculous properties and accompanied by its lack of toxicity, is undoubtedly an important tool in medicine. It is an unusual double-edged sword. It defends the body via stimulation of the immune system and at the same time it improves oxygenation and metabolism. I do believe that ozone deserves a place in the management of health and disease. It is up to us, patients and physicians, to demand access to this wonderful healing substances. Dr. Chown practices in Vancouver, BC
OXYGEN THERAPIES - by Dr. Zoltan P. Rona MD MSC - In the past decade, oxygen therapies like ozone, hydrogen peroxide, coenzyme Q10, liquid stabilized oxygen and other oral supplements have gained more prominence and credibility. The escalating demand for oxygen therapies is linked to the increased incidences of allergies, chronic fatigue syndrome, AIDS and cancer. Oxygen therapies are extremely controversial. Many physicians and clinics offering them in Canada and the United States have been forced out of practice by various government agencies. There is a great deal of confusion and misunderstanding surrounding the subject. For the most part, both ozone and hydrogen peroxide therapies are only available in Mexico, some Caribbean countries like the Bahamas, Cuba and the Dominican Republic as well as in Europe, especially Germany and eastern Europe. The reasons for this are all political, not medical or scientific. If you want ozone or hydrogen peroxide therapies, don't call your doctor. Call your travel agent.
Hydrogen peroxide and ozone are naturally occurring gases that are capable of providing more oxygen to cells, tissues and organs. Both therapies have been used around the world by conventional and alternative medical doctors alike in oral, rectal, vaginal, intramuscular and intravenous forms for nearly a century. As with all therapies, toxicity may be encountered and there are a variety of opinions on this issue.
If ozone is inhaled in large quantities, it can be toxic. Overdoses (beyond the usual therapeutic doses) of either hydrogen peroxide or ozone can cause inflammation, nausea, indigestion, diarrhea, coughing, chest pain, asthma, dizziness and headaches. Combined with environmental pollutants like petrochemical hydrocarbons, ozone can irreversibly damage lung and other body tissues. The same is true of hydrogen peroxide, oxygen, water and any other nutrient. To categorically say that "ozone is toxic" or that "hydrogen peroxide is toxic" is almost as ridiculous as saying that "water is toxic." Toxicity is a matter of degree. It is a biochemical fact that the body manufactures its own hydrogen peroxide under certain conditions. For ozone, hydrogen peroxide, oxygen and water to become toxic, huge amounts far more than the recommended levels used in therapy would have to be consumed.
Safety of oxygen therapies (oxygen therapy) is further ensured when they are used as a part of a comprehensive health promoting program that takes into account an optimal diet and antioxidant nutritional supplements like beta carotene, vitamin C, vitamin E and selenium. By and large, the medical use of oxidative therapies is safe and effective for a broad range of conditions. Beware of ozone and hydrogen peroxide promoters who claim that oxygen therapies are all you need to treat cancer or AIDS. Using these therapies in isolation from all others could lead to problems.
Hydrogen peroxide is normally found in the waters of many famous healing spas around the world but also in several areas of the human body including mother's milk. Our natural friendly bacterial flora, lactobacillus acidophilus, manufactures hydrogen peroxide as a defense against Candida albicans and other potential pathogens. A high vitamin C intake stimulates the production of hydrogen peroxide. In the blood, our white blood cells (Lymphocytes) produce hydrogen peroxide to combat invasive organisms. Hydrogen peroxide transports sugar throughout the body. It also has the ability to reverse plaque formation in arteriosclerotic disease thereby preventing a host of heart conditions.
Medical ozone is more bactericidal, fungicidal and viralcidal than any other natural substance, including hydrogen peroxide. In fact, studies prove that ozone infused into donated blood samples can kill viruses 100% of the time. It does not do any damage to healthy cells. Blood banking centers around the world are seriously considering using medical ozone in all donated samples rather than just testing blood samples for the presence of viruses. Herpes, Epstein-Barr, influenza, mumps, measles, HIV, cytomegalovirus, hepatitis and other viruses have been documented to be destroyed by ozone exposure. Atherosclerotic plaques have also been demonstrated to be reduced by intravenous ozone therapy.
Ozone is used to purify water in many European countries instead of chlorine because it does not produce any carcinogenic byproducts. Chlorine does. Chlorine and other chemicals from gasoline and diesel powered vehicles are linked to countless chronic diseases, including cancer. The city of Los Angeles has replaced chlorination for drinking water by the largest ozone water purification system in the world. Other major North American cities will soon follow suit.
Both ozone and hydrogen peroxide break down in the body to extra oxygen. They destroy viruses, bacteria, fungi, parasites, pyrogens and, according to some, cancer cells. There is no bacteria, virus, fungus or spore that can survive in the presence of ozone or peroxide. This explains the benefit in chronic viral conditions and candidiasis.
Cancer cells are killed by ozone or peroxide, yet healthy cells are unaffected. The theory is that cancer is a plant cell which can be killed by its waste product, oxygen while non-cancerous cells are resistant to this type of destruction. An increasing volume of scientific research supports the fact that ozone or peroxide therapy can help in the successful treatment of a long list of infectious as well as degenerative diseases.
The availability of oxidative therapies in Canada and the US will hinge more on the increasing public demand and grass roots political action rather than further scientific community acceptance.
Medical Ozone and Cancer
Medical ozone saves lives in Europe,
but the FDA continues to prevent formal testing in the United States
By Ed McCabe
THERE ARE OVER 3,000 medical references in the German literature showing the effectiveness and safety of ozone in over 50 years of application to humans by way of millions of dosages. The International Ozone Association and the ozone machine manufacturers report over 7,000 M.D.'s in Europe using medical ozone safely and effectively, some for more than 40 years, yet for the past 20 years the FDA has prevented human testing and issues any ozone-generating device approvals.
Although in Europe ozone has been used for 50 years by over 10,000 physicians, in America ozone therapy is only taught privately, or in naturopathic schools, so your family doctor is probably untrained in its use. Therefore, he/she probably will have no idea (or an incorrect idea) of what you're talking about If you ask about it. So, if you are seeking opinions, always ask your medical professional what actual experience he/she has with the ozone therapies-especially ifhe/she gives you a negative opinion without any facts to back it up. There are no legitimate studies proving ozone doesn't work.
It's so simple it befuddles the great minds. Unlike healthy human cells that love oxygen, the disease-causing viruses, bacteria, fungi and parasites-including the HIV and cancer virons, cancer cells, arthritis microbes, colds and flu, and West Nile virus carried by mosquitoes-like most primitive lower life forms, are almost all anaerobic.
That means these microbes and cancer cells cannot live in high oxygen concentrations. Therefore, what would happen to these anaerobic viruses and bacteria if they were to be completely surrounded with a very energetic form of pure oxygen for a long time? What if enough of this special form of oxygen/ ozone was to be slowly and harmlessly introduced into the body daily, over the course of a few months, to eventually saturate all the bodily fluids and every cell, including those of the brain, spine and bone marrow, with it? Wouldn't the disease causing microbes, and cells that, can't live in oxygen cease to exist?
Why is this so hard to understand? I was speaking to a woman with AIDS in San Francisco who told me her doctor, the head of the largest hospital in that city, said ozone/oxygen won't leave the blood and get into the bone marrow where the immune cells are manufactured, so she shouldn't look into it! How can it be that the head of the largest hospital didn't know that every cell must have oxygen delivered to it constantly, so the body must continually bring oxygen to every cell, even past the blood/brain/ spinal barrier, and into the bone mar row? Or was there another agenda, to discredit every treatment except drugs.
All 30 or so oxygen therapies, including medical ozone (not smog), which breaks down into oxygen, work because they flood the body with Nature's single oxygen atoms. Singlet oxygen and its by-products are very energetic oxidizers-they "burn up" waste products, pollution, microbes and weak (cancerous) cells. They can't protect themselves against oxygen, because they are either inert, lower life forms or diseased. Normal body cells protect themselves from the oxidizing effects of oxygen by naturally producing their own protective antioxidant coatings.
We are 66% water. Most European and many American cities and businesses, including Sea World, purify their water by bubbling ozone through it to kill all the bacteria and viruses, etc. In Western Europe, over 40 full-scale municipal ozone facilities are installed each year. France alone has over 700 water treatment plants equipped with ozone. Switzerland has over 80 plants online for disinfecting contaminated water and oxidizing organics in heavily contaminated surface waters. Germany has over 70 installations using ozone. As of 1990, there were no less than 40 full-scale ozone installations in the United States. (See "Inactivation Mnetics of Viruses and Bacteria by use of Ozone," by E. Katzenelson et al., American Water Works Society, 1974). Everybody is drinking bottled water. Did you know that most of the bottled water we drink goes through the same ozone purification methods? The FDA calls it "Food" Generally Regarded as Safe, "GRAS," in 21 CFR Sec. 184.1563. The FDA lists ozone as a Generally Regarded as Safe antimicrobial agent in Sec. 170.3 (o) (2).
Doesn't it make sense that since your body is two-thirds water (we are internally permeated with fluids), the same water purification principles would directly apply to us? Ozone is simply infused through your body liquids to sterilize and purify them, and your organs filter out the leftover particulates, just as with drinking water.
This body purification method has been successfully applied to the human body by knowledgeable doctors treating diseased persons for over 100 years. Nikola Tesla was big on it. It's simple and it's simple because it's natural. "Natural" means high efficiency and no side effects because it enhances the natural life forces rather than fighting them. Our natural intake of oxygen from our once-natural environment's food, air and water is the way Nature intended us to keep healthy and clean, by naturally oxidizing away the microbes and toxins.
Unfortunately, due to human ego and greed, mankind has polluted the ecosystem, cut down the rainforests and ruined the oceans-the two sources where the oxygen all comes from. The ancient atmosphere had twice as much oxygen as ours does now. We are all oxygen deficient since we are surviving on less than half the oxygen our bodies are designed to run on, although most call this "normal." Our bodies can no longer take out (oxidize) the trash, so it piles up for years, and we suffer.
I have personally witnessed and counseled hundreds of cancer and other patients receiving ozone infusion therapy. What I teach is plainly evident right before your very eyes once you know what to look for. When they start out, the body fluids and blood of most patients are filthy, diseased and so empty of oxygen that the blood is almost black in color from the filth. Toxins and lack of oxygen cause disease! But keep putting the ozone into them for a few weeks, and the blood turns back to a bright cherry red, full of color, full of life-giving oxygen, and clean again. Keep the blood this clean with medical oxygen/ ozone, and the organs and cells quickly follow. Without all the garbage inside of us, we usually return to the natural health we had as children, before the dirt piled up inside us with age and gave the bugs and cancer cells a place, and a reason, to grow.
WHERE CAN YOU GO TO GET OZONE THERAPY?
Despite this dramatic and easy to reproduce proof, top-level human egos protecting power and greed ideologies are presently preventing us from fully exploring medical ozone's use in U.S. medicine without great difficulty. For example, in New York City it is illegal to say any therapy helps AIDS. This law has been used as an excuse to shut down experimental ozone clinical trials in progress before they could produce the documentation. One friend of mine funded an ozone trial in Mexico and advertised in New York for volunteers to get the free treatments. He was immediately attacked by authorities seeking to make a name for themselves by chewing him up. He found himself vi 1 ied on TV, and narrowly escaped )all. Years later, doctors in New York and several other states now quietly practice some forms of ozone therapy under new health freedom laws. As of 1998, the following states have such protection: Alaska, Colorado, Georgia,
Nevada, New Mexico, NewYork, North Carolina, Oklahoma, Texas, Washington and Minnesota. Naturopaths in Canada and America have always used ozone. The Benedict Lust School of Naturopathy is the oldest school, and offers free naturopathic school grants: www.oxytherapies.com/newpagel. him.
OZONE AND CANCER: HAND IN GLOVE FIT
I have shown you that ozone floods the body with oxygen, but why is that important in treating cancer? As I once said in a Canadian lecture: Doctor Otto Warburg is a two-time Nobel prize winner, in 1931 and 1944 (Hitler kept him from accepting). He got the Nobel Prize for discovering that the cause of cancer is no longer a mystery to us. We now know what the cause of cancer is. They were so astounded that he figured this out they awarded him the Nobel Prize for discovering these facts. Remember, because you do not have enough oxygen, your cells are constantly filling up with toxicity, in some people quicker than in others. The little cell gets covered with garbage, and washed in toxic fluids constantly because it's surrounded by dirty fluids.
The garbage piles up until it denies the cell 60 percent or more of its oxygen requirements. This is the root cause of cancer. Picture pouring black paint on an orange. This cell needs oxygen. Hold your breath, and when you feel short on oxygen, breathe. All your cells need oxygen, that bad, all the time. If you cover up the cell with garbage, you block the oxygen from getting into the cell. If you cover it with enough toxicity, so much that 60 percent of the oxygen it needs constantly is not there, then that cell will be so short of breath its respiratory mechanism will be damaged.
In other words, if the oxygen's not there and the cell is trying to breathe, it will become so damaged that it can't breathe anymore. And when the cell can't breath because of the damaged respiratory mechanism, it mutates to survive. The poor cell drops 31 steps, down to the level of a green plant-type cell that just grows and grows. The cell has lost all its higher functions: it no longer heals or regulates things, it no longer makes hormones, it no longer digests your food. Whatever part of the body this mutating cell is in, it's dropped down to the level of a plant-type cell that just grows and grows and grows. Cancer.
Cells do this because of our DNA wired instinct to survive. There is not enough oxygen for it to breathe, yet the cell wants to survive-since our DNA & RNA has programmed this physical vehicle/body to survive in adverse conditions-so it will stay alive in a lower form by changing to a fermentative respiration mechanism, meaning that our cells stop breathing oxygen and start fermenting glucose to make energy. Our bodies are full of glucose sugar. Our oxygen and body sugar are where we get our energy from, our adenosine triphosphate, ATP, the energy currency of the body.
So, normal cells, when denied enough oxygen by toxic slime for long enough, mutate and drop backward, devolving into a lowly plant-type cell that only ferments sugar. Now the ATP energy the cell tries to make at this point is very substandard low oxygen ATP that leaves lots of lactic acid residue. And we get no energy--Just pain from lactic acidosis, and other problems, thus damaging more cells. Around and around the damage goes, and that makes more cancer cells. It's all from a lack of oxygen.
Cancer is a fermentative disease caused by a compromised robust oxidative mechanism, giving you fermentation and uncontrolled cellular growth. Tumors are walled-off toxic waste dumps inside the body. We've seen many tumors injected directly with ozone melt from the inside out, dry up and fall off.
Let's ask two-time Nobel Prize winner Dr. Otto Warburg, himself. Here are excerpts from an article based on a lecture delivered at Stuttgart on May 25, 1955, before the German Central Committee for Cancer Control. It was first published in German [Naturwissenschaften 42,401 (1955)]. This translation was prepared by Dean Burk, Jehu Hunter and W. H. Everhardy of the U.S. Department of Health, Education and Welfare, Public Health Service, National Institutes of Health, Bethesda, MD.
"The era in which the fermentation of the cancer cells or its importance could be disputed is over, and no one today can doubt that we understand the origin of cancer cells if we know how their large fermentation originates, or, to express it more fully, if we know how the damaged respiration and the excessive fermentation of the cancer cells originate.
"But, even for cancer, there is only one primary cause. Summarized in a few words, the main cause of cancer is the replacement of the respiration of oxygen in normal body cells by a fermentation of sugar."
"Because no cancer cell exists, the respiration of which is intact, it cannot be disputed that cancer could be prevented if the respiration of the body cells would be kept intact."
"But nobody today can say that one does not know what cancer and its prime cause [are]. On the contrary, there is no disease whose prime cause is better known, so that today ignorance is no longer an excuse that one cannot do more about prevention.
"That the prevention of cancer will come, there is no doubt, for man wishes to survive. But how long prevention will be avoided depends on how long the prophets of agnosticism will succeed in inhibiting the application of scientific knowledge in the cancer field. In the meantime, millions of men [and women] must die of cancer unnecessarily. "
There is plenty of further documentation proving "ozone works" to be found in major journals, some in the U.S., but mostly in Europe. (See my publication "03 vs. AIDS" or my web site: www.edmccabe.net for hundreds of solid medical references about ozone treatments for all diseases.) Here is how ozone is properly delivered to the body.
CLINICAL MEDICAL OZONE USAGE
The first thing to keep in mind is that not all ozone treatment is the same, and the effectiveness of any ozone treatment increases with the number of times it is given per day or week, the strength of the concentrations used, the quantities applied, and the delivery methods used. For example, 50 ccs of ozonated blood re-injected into you in a clinic every other week is nowhere near as effective as drinking ozonated water at home every day. Quantity, concentration and frequency are the keys. The aim is to safely and comfortably flood the body with oxygen by slowly building it up as you detoxify.
General guidelines: For best results during the treatment phase, ozone is applied once or twice daily, or perhaps every other day, in concentrations varying from I to 80 micrograms per cubic milliliter (mcg/ml3), in as great a quantity as can be safely and comfortably absorbed by the body. This is continued for as long as it takes, until the problems go away. Mild diseases may take a few treatments; chronic ones, several months. Very weak ozone concentrations of less than 0.05 parts per million by volume of air are commonly and safely inhaled during normal activities by hundreds of thousands of people; in fact, I'm doing it as I am writing this. Ozone air purifiers are very common, but this is a separate discussion.
The lower concentrations and quantities of ozone will aid healing and stimulate the immune system slightly, but these are usually ignored in favor of the real power of medical ozone, which is found to be generally centered around daily applications of 27 mcg/mI for internal work. Higher concentrations are used for external body work. The upper range tops out at around 70 mcg/ml3, and beyond that is controversial. These concentrations are never allowed to enter the lungs, which are too sensitive for anything other than concentrations around normal air levels of ozone or slightly higher.
I have interviewed hundreds of doctors, and thousands of patients using oxygen therapy. Here are the three top clinical ozone delivery methods used worldwide, and my ranking of them, the most effective one listed first. These are for seriously Ill people. Please only seek out an experienced and competently trained ozone therapist professional if you pursue them. Ozone has many subtleties, and a lot of M.D.'s may act knowledgeable but have little idea what ozone is all about.
Recirculatory autohemo perfusion: Also known as polyatomic apheresis, recirculatory autohemo perfusion is the creme de la creme of ozone delivery. Dirty, dark, diseased blood is taken out of one arm and ozonated with 27 mcg/ m13 ozone, and filtered, outside the body. Then the remaining clean, bright red, freshly sterilized and oxygenated blood is put back into the other arm. It's a complete body blood wash, highly effective in all ailments because the ozone-oxidized leftover garbage of dead microbes, diseased cells and detoxified by-products drops out of the blood into the external filters. The waste products are not sent back through the liver, kidney and lymph systems to irritate and perhaps weaken the body further,
as occurs in all other ozone methods. All other methods are handicapped by comparison. This method is so good that the medical industrial complex Immediately shuts down any attempts to test it, in any country. I knew of one dying patient who, during the first treatment, got up off the stretcher and walked out after just a few hours of this treatment.
IV slow injections of the 03 gas: No air with its non-absorbable nitrogen, just pure medical grade oxygen turned into medical grade ozone, which is injected through butterfly needles at a rate of I cc per minute into the blood, once or twice daily. Ten-cc syringes filled with 27mcg/ml3 ozone are used, one at a time, and refilled as needed, until you begin to get a chest, or throat, tickle or cough. When the body thus indicates it is full to overflowing, you stop the injection immediately. For safety, direct IV's are only given to patients who are lying completely flat before, during and after treatment, so t the ozone/ oxygen is slowly and evenly distributed throughout the body.
This was the most advanced and aggressive method around until the recirculatory autohemo perfusion came along, and is far more effective than autohernotherapy (see below). It is cheaper than both, due to using less equipment. Direct IV ozone is very
I very effective, but its not found very often
because the Germans-and the Americans who learn from them-are reluctant to use direct IV work due to habit and in some cases their investment in the machines they already have.
Autohemotherapy: This involves withdrawing approximately 600 ml of blood and re-infusing it into the body after gently putting 27mcg/ml3 ozone into It. Fifty years of safe use on millions of patients has a lot of weight. The drawback to its real effectiveness is that it is usually given only once or twice a week, because the patients can only afford that many treatments. If the doctors would switch to direct IV, the patients would pay the same but triple their bang for their bucks.
HOME OZONE TREATMENTS
In no particular order of effectiveness, since no studies have been done, and treatment times and dosages vary so widely that we can't really compare them, here are the most common home self supplement type ozone treatment methods that I recommend, and use myself
Ozone sauna suit / bagging: Any or every body part, except the head, soaks in a bag full of humidified 27 mcg/ml3+ ozone for 15 minutes up to two hours or longer. You can use higher concentrations. Be careful not to breathe it. At a national health expo, a famous futurist's wife was so sick she couldn't leave their hotel room. A friend put her in a ozone sauna suit, and she soaked up the humidified ozone through her skin for an hour. While in the bag she was throwing up from her illness, but one hour later she was well enough to go out to dinner with us!
Ozone steam cabinets: This involves sitting in a small steam chamber or being washed with hot high concentration ozonated steam/water below 40 degrees C., after which temperature the ozone is destroyed by the heat. This should be done for 20 minutes, up to one hour for the brave. Water carries ozone into the body, where the ozone saturates the body capillary networks transdermally. The entire body absorbs ozone except for the head. If used often enough, this method rivals autohernotherapy in dose loading, and it can be done at home. Be careful not to breathe it.
Ozone rectal insufflation: There are two methods. In the first an average of 1 1/2 liters of 27 mcg/ml 03 gas is infused up to three times a day into the colon and gently held for two minutes; if you're not able to hold it that long, repeat. You may experience cramps until you clean out. The new "Mr. Oxygen Method" Tm uses two catheters inserted into a clean colon, one way up, the other short. Ozone continually goes into the long one and soaks into the miles of blood vessels around the colon, and any excess oxygen vents out of the short one, for up to an hour.
Ozone charged drinking water: Bubble 03 into water, which must be imbibed immediately all daylong while the 03 is still in the glass. Be careful not to breathe it.
Ozone vaginal insufflation: Average 5-15 minutes of insufflating the body cavity.
Ozone ear insufflation: Average 5 minutes of letting 03 fall Into the ear cavities. Don't put pressure on eardrum.
Ozone air purification: Continual low levels of ozone sterilize and rejuvenate the room air. 03 breathed in very low ambient concentrations (please seek guidance) slowly cleans the lungs and therefore the blood, over time.
You need plenty of water and antioxidant support while doing any of the above. Many people often combine two or more of the above methods. Any one of the high-dosage home methods can be better than another if you can safely do it longer stronger, and more often. The trick is to always balance ozone dose loading versus the detoxification process that occurs as ozone moves out the garbage. Keep it mild and gentle, slow and steady, and do not waver.
I have seen many people sent home to die with cancer, who then used proper ozone therapies and ended up perfectly healthy 5 years later. But they stuck to a full protocol-getting it daily, in the right dosages and the right concentrations, and combining it with other significant modal Ines. People who are too far gone, have never tried it, have only "dabbled" in it or have gone to a well meaning but under-trained ozone therapist are the ones who end up being the nay-sayers.
Go ahead and ask anyone who is disrespecting ozone: Did you work up to using at least 150 cc (not the starting dosage) of 27-42 mcg/ml concentration strength of only pure medical ozone gas? Was it applied once or twice a day, every single day, for at least six weeks? Was the ozone delivered by IV or better? If anyone said it's dangerous or ineffective, they're doing it wrong! Ninety-nine percent of the many successful ozone-using people who I have interviewed-and written or spoken about-have received ozone only this proper way. And none were hurt. Those who use ozone correctly continue to come back for more, because they realize the benefits within their own bodies.
The German Medical Society has published that 384,775 patients were treated with ozone with a minimum of 5,579,238 applications and the side effect rate observed was only .000005 per application! The report also stated "The majority of adverse effects were caused by ignorance about ozone therapy (operator error)." The University of Innsbruck's Forensic Institute published Dr. Zacob's dissertation quoting this in The Empirical Medical Acts of Germany.
Please only work with competently trained healthcare professionals who are real ozone specialists skilled in the oxidative modalities.
