In order to appreciate ozone one must first
understand fully the critical role that oxygen plays. Oxygen is
by far the most important necessity of human life. It performs
hundreds of tasks in the body, but the two most important are
energy production and detoxification.
The production of energy in the body is accomplished
by the combination of glucose with oxygen, producing ATP. The
body makes an amount of ATP equivalent to your body weight every
24 hours. If you make 10% less ATP than normal, you will feel
tired and sluggish. If ATP production falls too far, you will
deteriorate rapidly, and die. Energy is life and the production
of energy in the body depends upon oxygen.
The second important function of oxygen is to
combine with metabolic waste products to allow their elimination
from the body. This process is called the oxidation-reduction
cycle. When insufficient oxygen is available, the detoxification
process slows down, wastes pile up, circulation becomes sluggish,
oxygen is prevented from reaching the cells and disease results.
Thus, we can see that oxygen is essential to these two vital phases
Since oxygen is the most critical requirement
for life, the ingestion of substances that increase the level
of oxygen in the body are the most beneficial to optimum health.
The best sources of oxygen are ozone, hydrogen peroxide and magnesium
Ozone treatment is safe because healthy cells
are surrounded by an enzyme coating, which ozone does not penetrate.
Bacteria and viruses have no such coatings and are oxidized on
contact by ozone. Ozone also promotes the production of glutathione
peroxidase, catalase, reductase and super-oxide dismutase which
are the anti-oxidant enzymes in the cell and therefore cellular
immunity is enhanced.
Ozone also has a measurable benefit on the uptake
and utilization of oxygen through improved glycolysis in red blood
cells, reduction of clumping of red blood cells and the stimulation
of mitochondrial respiration. This improved cellular respiration
is invaluable in preventing cancer.
Cancer begins when a normal cell cannot get
enough oxygen. If the level of oxygen available falls below 40%,
in order to survive, the cell will begin to ferment sugar instead
of burn it. This process is irreversible, and results in an energy
output only 1/6 as great as oxidation. The cell then lacks the
energy to manufacture a proper enzyme coating around itself. The
governor on cell replication is switched off, and the cell can
begin to make copies of itself wildly. This ungoverned cell replication
is called cancer.
When ozone is introduced into the area, it immediately
attacks the unhealthy cells because they lack a proper enzyme
coating. Healthy cells are untouched. If sufficient ozone is administered
over time, the tumor will be dissolved.
The applications of medical ozone include performance
enhancement, increased longevity, accelerated wound healing, dentistry,
heart disease, all infections, treatment of all gastroenteric
diseases, immune stimulation, treatment of all cancers, and gerontology.
Ozone also combines well with intravenous chelation therapy which
is used to treat arterial disease or heavy metal toxicity. Chelation
therapy works quite slowly through a number of infusions, and
adding ozone can speed this process up.
Ozone provides an immediate oxygen boost to
heart tissue which can noticeably reduce the incidence of angina.
It also improves brain function, because the brain uses over 15%
of all the oxygen in the body.
The naso-pharyngeal area is often the site of
chronic minor infections which become acute in cycles. Chronic
sinusitis is probably one of the most common maladies of today.
The introduction of ozone into the ear canals can be of great
benefit in reducing such chronic infections.
Another method of getting ozone into the body
is with the use of a closed, one-person steam sauna. Since the
pores will be open in the moist heat, ozone can be easily absorbed
in large amounts through the skin very safely.
The use of ozone for medical therapy is well-established
and is being vigorously pursued by many enlightened clinicians.
It has an excellent safety record and no toxic side effects have
been observed in millions of treatments over nearly 100 years.
As technology develops, new techniques will undoubtedly emerge
that will enlarge the scope of the effective use of this healing
