Ozone, Methods Of Application
ozone therapy was first practiced in the 1880s, many methods of
administering ozone have been developed. They can be broken down
into five categories :
1) Injection - autohemotherapy; or direct injection into a vein,
artery, muscle, joint; or directly into a tumor
2) Insufflation - in the ear, vagina, rectum, urethra
3) Inhalation - bubbled through olive oil
4) Ingestion - ozonated water
5) Transdermal - subatmospheric; bagging; body suit; ozonated
olive oil; cupping with a funnel; steam sauna
1) Direct Injection vs. Autohemotherapy
Autohemotherapy was developed by Dr. Hans Wolff in 1961 as an
alternative to direct injection. Dr. Wolff developed a technique
for withdrawing 50 - 500 cc of blood into a container, injecting
ozone into it and then infusing it back into the patient over
20 minutes as an IV drip.
There were several problems to be overcome. Blood coagulates when
it is exposed to the air, so a method had to be found to prevent
coagulation. The liver normally secretes heparin to prevent clotting
inside the body. Sodium heparin was found to be effective in preventing
clotting outside the body. Later, when heparin was seen to cause
problems in some patients with liver problems (especially cirrhosis),
sodium citrate was adopted by some doctors. However, heparin is
still widely used because sodium citrate is less effective, even
though heparin is hard on the liver and is known to suppress the
A suitable vessel to hold the blood was required, and the Hansler
corporation of Germany began to manufacture and market a vacuum
flask kit to make it easier for doctors to perform this therapy.
Hansler GmbH is the oldest medical ozone generator company still
in business, based upon Dr. Joachim Hansler's 1957 patent of a
dual-dielectric corona discharge ozone generator tube.
There are a number of advantages of direct injection vs. autohemotherapy
- there is no need for heparin, which can
damage the liver and is immune-suppressive, and may cause uncontrolled
- there is no need for an expensive, disposable
vacuum flask kit and no contaminated equipment to dispose of
- there is no need to take time to mix the
ozone into the blood, or wait for the reinfusion drip
- since the heart will pump all the blood
past the point of injection in eight minutes, all 6 liters of
the blood are cleaned, instead of just 50 - 500 cc
- it is easier to initiate the desirable healing
- fewer treatments are required because a
better job is done each time
- a tumor can be injected directly and then
the resulting fluid aspirated with the same needle
Insufflation is very useful, easily done, inexpensive, and now widely
used in the home.
- Insufflation in the ear is excellent for:
ear infections; mastoiditis; hearing problems caused by candida;
tinnitus; (and beyond the ear to) sinusitis; macular degeneration;
retinitis pigmentosa; head colds; flu; bronchitis; asthma; Alzheimer's;
Parkinson's; even brain cancer.
- Vaginal insufflation is used for any vaginal,
uterine, ovarian or lower abdominal problem, including pelvic
inflammatory diseases, fibroids, etc. The ozone will enter the
lymph system from vaginal insufflation, as well as the blood
- Rectal insufflation requires a preparatory
enema. It is used for colon problems such as colitis, ileitis,
irritable bowel, Crohn's disease, and colon cancer.
- Urethral insufflation is used for bladder
infections, STDs, inflammation of the ureter, prostate enlargement,
and bladder and prostate cancer.
Ozone can be inhaled if it is first bubbled through extra virgin
olive oil. This is useful for asthma due to bacterial or viral
infection. Repeated treatments over 3 - 6 weeks for 15 - 20 minutes
at a time are usually sufficient. Simultaneous magnet therapy is
useful and can be easily done by placing a magnet (3" x 5"; 3500
gauss) on the chest with the north pole facing the body.
Six to eight glasses a day will establish a high level of oxygenation
in the body and assist detoxification. Bubble ozone into a glass
of water for 5 - 10 minutes, then drink on an empty stomach. This
will also destroy helicobacter pylori in the stomach, which is the
cause of ulcers.
Transdermal application of ozone has existed for 120 years, and
recently has been growing in popularity. The skin is semi-porous
to oxygen, and 7% of normal respiration is transdermal. There are
several transdermal ozone application techniques:
B) Bagging a limb
C) Body suit
D) Ozonated olive oil
E) Cupping with a funnel
F) Steam cabinet
A) Subatmospheric application requires an apparatus to enclose a
limb, reduce pressure by means of a vacuum pump and direct ozone
into proximity with the desired area. This technique has proven
useful in certain difficult problems, such as gas gangrene and open
ulcers. It is not widely used at present because of the expense
of the equipment and its lack of availability.
B) Bagging a limb is very similar, but requires only a clear plastic
bag in order to confine the ozone to the area being treated. The
limb is moistened first, in order to aid the penetration of ozone
through the skin, then enclosed in the plastic bag and the ozone
is introduced by means of silicone tubing from the generator into
the bag. The top of the bag is securely closed with either a cloth
strip or an elastic strap as a cuff. If the flow rate is to be above
1/8 l/m, then an outlet from the bottom of the bag will be necessary
to allow the excess ozone to leave, and avoid pressurization. If
the flow rate is kept very low, say 1/16 l/m or 1/32 l/m, there
is no need to have an outlet, as the bag will not overfill in a
30 minute treatment. This technique has been in use for many years,
and is especially useful with impaired circulation in diabetic legs,
removing the threat of amputation.
C) A body suit is composed of ozone-resistant material, typically
Tyvek or nylon, which is sealed at the wrists, neck and ankles (if
there are no attached booties). It is necessary to shower first
and then enter the suit while still wet, to aid ozone transference.
The silicon tubing from the generator is introduced into the suit
either through the neck opening or up the sleeve. Ozone is introduced
for 30 minutes at a rate of 1/8 l/m or 1/4 l/m. This method is losing
favor due to the clammy, sticky feel of the suits on the skin, as
the wet skin surface cools and dries.
D) Ozonated olive oil has been used as a topical application for
100 years and its efficacy is well established for problems such
as acne, cuts, scrapes, bruises, burns, eczema, sunburn, skin infections,
etc. It is also useful to apply it to the skin following a session
of limb bagging.
E) Cupping with a funnel is a more recent transdermal technique
where ozone is introduced into a very restricted area at a very
low flow rate. First the area to be treated (typically the liver,
pancreas, spleen, intestine, kidney or adrenal) is moistened with
a warm washcloth, and then a plastic funnel is held firmly over
the area. The flow rate is restricted to 1/32 l/m in order to prevent
pressure buildup under the cup, and possible leakage. Treatments
typically run for 20 - 30 minutes. Good results are obtainable with
daily application for hepatitis, diverticulitis, pancreatitis, kidney
infections and adrenal insufficiency.
F) The sixth transdermal technique was developed by Dr. John Kellogg
in 1880, and revived by Plasmafire Intl in 1994, to take advantage
of the therapeutic possibilities of using hyperthermia in conjunction
with ozone therapy. The person sits in an ozone-resistant steam
cabinet, with the head out, and the body surrounded by warm steam.
The steam causes the pores to open fully and the ozone, introduced
into the cabinet by silicon tubing from the generator output, can
penetrate fully into all the tissue - the blood, the lymph and the
fat. Since the majority of toxins are held in the lymph and the
fat, this treatment is the most effective way to eliminate them
from the body. The skin is the largest organ of elimination, and
the majority of the oxidized toxins are sweated out, sparing the
liver and kidneys most of the extra work.
Hyperthermia itself is a very effective technique, many thousands
of years old, recommended by Hippocrates. It results in a "false
fever" reaction, which simulates the body's own defense mechanism.
With the addition of ozone, the treatment becomes doubly powerful.
As the toxins are oxidized, and eliminated from the body, the fat
containing them is no longer needed, and also leaves. Weight loss
of 30, 40, or 50 lbs over a period of months has been reported,
with no change in diet. The skin becomes smooth, soft and free
of blemishes. Symptoms of a whole host of diseases disappear as
the toxins leave the system and the body is enabled to heal itself.
Unlike other methods of ozone application, employing ozone in a
steam sauna will induce the "healing crisis", which feels like
having the flu for a few days. People should be informed of this
effect so they can be prepared, and welcome it as a sign of beneficial
healing. Skin rashes are common as the toxins are pushed out through
the skin rapidly. Often the rash is very itchy, and this can be
alleviated by taking protease enzymes, and applying Gardener's
The more frequent the treatments, the more rapid the healing, and
the more severe the healing reactions will be. It may become so
uncomfortable that the person will need to reduce the frequency
of treatments from once daily to once weekly. Typical treatments
are once daily for 30 minutes duration. Persons with heart conditions
should be limited to 15 minutes at a lower temperature for the first
few sessions, increasing to 20, 25 and then 30 minutes, as the body
adjusts to the thermal stress over time. People who have had a previous
stroke should not do saunas, but can do ozone in other ways.
Flow rate of ozone into the cabinet is at 1/2 l/m in order to fill
the large volume and overcome the loss of ozone to heat. Concentration
ranges from 35 to 40 ug/ml. A series of treatments usually consists
of 10-30 applications.
The effect of the ozone on any particular organ can be intensified
by cupping with a funnel while in the steam cabinet. This is especially
effective with hepatitis, diverticulitis, pancreatitis and cancer.
It also involves the person in actively taking responsibility for
initiating the healing process. Flow rate for cupping should be
at 1/8 l/m, with concentrations from 40 - 50 ug/ml.
Novel application techniques are: placing the output tubing in the
armpit and holding the arm against the body, so that the ozone enters
the lymph system; placing the end of the tubing in the mouth to
treat the teeth, (carefully avoiding inhaling, or swallowing); and
sitting on the end of the tubing, so that ozone enters the perineum
Transdermal application of ozone combined with hyperthermia in the
steam cabinet is the treatment of choice for all cancers (brain
cancer treatment can be supplemented with ozone insufflation in
the ear at 1/32 l/m). Cancer tumor cells are tightly packed as they
try to force their way in between other cells, and they are thus
less able to shed heat. This accounts for effect that heat stress
has in killing cancer. Both heat stress and ozone kill cancer, so
this treatment offers the best opportunity to eliminate cells which
are fermenting sugar anerobically, halt metastasis and restore healthy
aerobic function. Ozone is able to seek out and destroy all the
cancer cells with more certainty than the surgeon's crude scalpel.
In addition, ozone will oxidize the toxins which caused the original
problem, and thus prevent recurrence. This is in stark contrast
to chemotherapy, which is massively immune-suppressive, and radiation
which actually causes cancer.
Using ozone with hyperthermia in the steam sauna will cleanse all
the tissues of the body and provoke the healing crisis, which is
not seen with other delivery methods, proof that this is the best
way to achieve thorough cleansing of all toxins.
It is critical that the bowels remain open during these treatments,
in order that oxidized toxins are completely eliminated from the
system and not reabsorbed. The best methods of insuring this is
by ingestion of 6 - 8 glasses of ozonated water daily (always on
an empty stomach), large amounts of fiber (such as psyllium or pectin),
large amounts of natural Vitamin C (3000 mg three times daily),
flax oil and/or Homozon.
In combination with a comprehensive diet plan, parasite, liver and
colon cleanses, and suitable exercise, this program offers the best
chance for a person to recover optimum health.
