Ozone may be helpful for many different types of health problems that have failed to respond to conventional, herbal and nutritional therapies. Ozone is a natural gas made up of 3 oxygen molecules and is generated in nature by UV rays during thunderstorms and lightning, and gives the fresh invigorating smell to the air after a thunderstorm has passed. Ozone is an important component of our atmosphere. Our atmosphere contains 0.01 ppm-0.04 ppm of ozone, which balances the level of bacteria and mildew in nature.
Ozone was discovered in 1840 and its benefits are proven, reliable and reproducible, and it has been found to have minimal side effects. Medical ozone has been used for over 150 years to treat infections, ulcers, wounds and many diseases. During the first world war (1914-18) doctors applied ozone topically to wounds and discovered ozone not only remedied infection, but also had immune boosting properties.
Ozone has been used by dentists for many years to control microbes in their clinics. Ozone is also used by some medical doctors, especially in Europe and the USA, to treat infections. Ozone increases oxygen delivery to tissues and cells, thereby improving immune function.
The first O3 generator was patented by Nikola Tesla in 1896 and he started the “Tesla Ozone Company.” Ozone generators are available today for personal use that convert oxygen in the air into ozone.
Ozone cannot be inhaled, as it can damage the lungs; apart from this precaution, ozone is safe and generally has no side effects.
Ozone has a high oxidizing capacity which makes it effective for disinfecting and sterilizing. It can destroy most bacteria in water or in the air and is accepted as a broad-spectrum, effective disinfectant and antiseptic.
The molecule of ozone is inherently unstable and tries to break down into an oxygen molecule as quickly as possible. This is what makes ozone such a great air and water cleanser. The ozone molecules need to combine with something in order to break down, so they end up oxidizing organic compounds and turn them into harmless carbon dioxide and water. Because ozone quickly breaks down into oxygen it is less toxic than disinfectant chemicals like chlorine. Ozone is the cleanest oxidizer and disinfector.
Disease causing (pathogenic) microbes can never become resistant to ozone and ozone will always be able to kill them. Ozone destroys a wide range of microbes including bacteria, viruses, parasites and fungi. So, you can see that ozone is a breakthrough for infection control, as many microbes are now resistant to antibiotic and anti-fungal drugs. Several types of anti-fungal drugs can be toxic to the liver.
Ozone purifies water, sterilises food produce, eliminates pesticides, purifies air, removes odours and toxic mould from the home, clothes, shoes and bathrooms.
Ozone can be administered to a person as an ozonated oil or ozonated water. The oil can be rubbed onto areas of the skin, scalp and nails that are infected with bacteria, viruses and fungi. Ozone oil can be used to reduce warts and cold sores as these are both viral infections.
Ozone gas can also be directed into body cavities such as the external ears, vagina or rectum. This is easily done with a syringe, silicon bag and catheter. Do not do this unless your doctor tells you to do it, as it is best done under supervision.
Ozone is such a powerful therapy and yet it’s hardly known by the general public. Very few people know that you can treat an infected wound with ozone oil or that you can use it to reduce inflammation, address leaky gut, boost your immune system and support your overall healing.
