Ozone is probably one of the most miraculous healing therapies available on our planet at this time. Through its oxygenating power, it successfully treats and cures a wide range of serious degenerative conditions including cancer, cardiovascular disease, diabetes, liver, and kidney disease.
More Than Hot Air
Ozone is very potent electrified or energized oxygen (O3). Oxygen is more essential to life than food and water. Without it, we would die in minutes but in big cities the levels in the air are decreasing, causing widespread ill health. Oxygen is carried to every part of the body by the red blood cells and is essential for the functioning of every cell in the body, as well as stimulating a healthy immune system.
Ozone also forms a protective layer around the earth; but some scientists point to the danger of high ozone readings as the cause of respiratory problems, so many are prejudiced, dismissive, and simply refuse to look into it.
Yet ozone therapy has been in use since the 1800s; and in 1896 the genius Nikola Tesla patented the first ozone generator in the United States, later forming the Tesla Ozone Company. After that, the Institute for Oxygen Therapy-Healing was formed in Berlin and the man credited with founding naturopathy, Dr. Benedict Lust, began practicing in New York, writing many articles on ozone.
Popular in Germany and Russia
This form of treatment is highly popular in Germany; and in 1959, an ozone machine called Ozonosan was patented by Dr. Joachim Hansler, which formed the basis for the expansion of ozone therapy in that country. Since then, more than 10,000 medical doctors there have been using ozone therapy; and Dr. Hansler’s daughter continues to run the company that manufactures the generators.
Despite more than 10 million people being successfully treated with ozone in Germany for the last 60 years, this is still considered to be “anecdotal evidence”! Still, many a skeptical doctor has been forced to change his stance while examining its success.
In fact, the rate of success in Germany has been measured at 90% with the lowest side effects of any medical treatment. One doctor cited only 3 out of 10,000 cases ever having any kind of allergic reaction, which quickly disappeared when adjusting the dosage.
Ozone therapy has also been practiced in Russia for 40 years in their hospitals. Professor Sergey P. Peretyagin, president of the Russian Association of Ozone Therapy, has been using it for 30 years. Doctors there report no reoccurrence of the diseases after treatment. And, in Cuba, ozone therapy has been approved by the Ministry of Health since 1986; with hundreds of thousands of people having been treated in every hospital there.
Persecuted in America
Yet in the US it has been largely ignored and called medical fraud as well as discredited in the American media. The Food and Drug Administration (FDA) still states on its website that ozone therapy has no effect, even though studies on AIDS have shown that ozone inactivates HIV.
Since the 1940s, ozone machines in the USA have been seized and information has been effectively suppressed by the FDA, citing the excuse that there is no “scientific evidence” for their effectiveness. Yet, in fact, ozone use predates the formation of the FDA itself. Ed McCabe (“Mister Oxygen”) stated that “ozone's medical usage is grandfathered in the United States and held as perfectly legal for any MD to use without censure.” So, despite 60 years of medical ozone's use on humans by thousands of physicians and flawless animal studies, the FDA will not allow human testing in the United States.
During a US Senate hearing in 1965, Dr. Herbert Ley, FDA Commissioner, testified that the FDA "protects" the big drug companies and is subsequently rewarded. Using the government's police powers, the Agency attacks those who threaten pharmaceutical profits.
The late Robert Atkins was one of those threats. He used ozone generators to treat patients with AIDS, cancer, and yeast infections. He found the generators “useful, extremely safe” and they “shrink tumors, enhance the immune system.” The FDA stopped him from continuing to use the machines. He said, simply, “My patients need ozone.”
The Canadian government tried to conduct trials but that came to nothing. Amazingly enough, the National Institute of Health, with a budget of nearly $30 billion and which has been around for 100 years, has not done any studies on ozone. In the 1980s, a company called Medizone International wanted to make human plasma safer for blood transfusions by eliminating infectious agents. The company filed its application and supporting research with the FDA but it was dismissed as anecdotal evidence and the application rejected.
Thanks to the FDA, then, many people have to travel from North America to Germany for ozone treatments. There, they will pay $3,000 for six treatments because it has been difficult for them to find a practitioner in the United States. Nowadays, there are some brave doctors and naturopaths in the US (and across the border in Mexico) who give a course of treatments.
Ozone Benefits Abound
Ozone stimulates cytokine production, attacking cancer cells. Double Nobel Prize winner biochemist Otto Warburg, in his book The Prime Cause and Prevention of Cancer, wrote about the precondition of the cancerous state where there is a lack of oxygen at the cellular level. He found that the presence of increased amounts of oxygen inhibits the spread of cancer cells and will eventually cause them to die. Ozone treatment will inhibit and repair cancer cells without damaging healthy cells.
Some of the conditions recorded as being successfully treated with ozone include the following: abscesses, acne, AIDS, allergies, anal fissures, cancer, cerebral sclerosis, circulatory disturbances, cirrhosis of the liver, menopausal problems, constipation, cystitis, dermatology, fistulae, funguses, furunculosis, gangrene, gastroenterology, hepatitis, herpes, high cholesterol, colitis, neurology, tumors, orthopedics, osteomyelitis, Parkinson's, rheumatism, gynaecological conditions, Raynaud's disease, scars, inflammation of the vertebrae, stomatitis, joint dystrophy, phlebitis, open sores, urology, vascular surgery, and wound healing. The list is endless.
Even many dentists are now using ozone to prevent decay or infection during dental operations, while medical doctors are using it during heart surgery to reduce the need for risky blood transfusions. In many parts of the World public drinking water is ozonated to clear it of harmful bacteria.
Ozone treatment comes in many forms including direct intravenous infusion into a vein, as well as rectal and vaginal insufflation, inhalation, ozone sauna, and ozonated water. Certain clinics, especially in the Caribbean, offer not only ozone treatments but chelation, liver detoxification, nutrition, immunotherapy, enzymatic therapy, live blood analysis, and hair mineral analysis. Patients will often go for a two- or three-week vacation while getting intensive, effective, and safe treatment.
There are International Ozone Associations that meet for conferences every year in different cities throughout the World. Hundred of medical papers have been published. PubMed, which publishes clinical trials, has 5015 references on ozone showing 95% improvement with studies on its usage for AIDS and tuberculosis. Demonstrating its longstanding popularity, this therapy is definitely not some idle fancy.
