Medical Ozone - What you should know
Ozone is a natural gas that we breathe daily. It is created when OXYGEN (O2) molecules are split by ultra violet radiation from the sun, lightning, and plasma discharge and the freed atoms then recombine in 3-atom groups to form cousins of oxygen: OZONE (O3). The word ozone comes from the Greek word ozein meaning smell, because of its distinctive sun-ray lamp smell. Ozone is Nature's way of cleaning pollution from our atmosphere.
HOW DOES OZONE WORK?
Ozone tends to react with other substances by attaching the third oxygen atom to the other substance, thereby oxidizing it. Many of us have heard weather reports where the ozone levels were referred to in conjunction with pollution levels. Ozone is present in smog because certain processes that create pollution also produce ozone. Ozone recombines with those same pollutants and neutralizes them by breaking them down into water, carbon dioxide, sulfur, nitrogen and oxygen.
Generated low levels of ozone used for water purification prove very successful, as it is possibly the most powerful antibiotic, sanitizer and deodorant known to man. It doesn't merely mask harmful substances or smells - it seeks them out and eliminates them. There are other ways to achieve a certain degree of water purification, such as UV exposure, high power irradiation or boiling, however, we refuse to even consider or recommend such measures because we would not treat oceanwater any differently than our own living blood (period).
The highest natural levels of ozone are found at the seashore and in forest/mountain locations, places where you automatically feel refreshed. The invigorating air after a thunderstorm is as a result of ozone formation by electrical discharges, so is the smell of naturally dried laundry on a clothesline.
Ozone tends to have an ambivalent reputation. Fuelled by the Mainstream Media who often only consider Ozone's effect on the lungs when breathed in excess. Ozone is such a strange - little-understood substance - that one cannot expect the general public to have an accurate picture of its live-enhancing qualities. One particularly good article is that of Dr. Majid Ali, M.D. who eloquently illustrates this ambivalent perception of Ozone.
Certain well-meaning people warn against the use of ozone because (in their words) ozone kills and whatever comes in contact with ozone - dies. I (the author of this article) have personally experienced pure ozone intravenous injections (called auto-hemo-therapy and it was directly injected into my bloodstream with a syringe as a gas - and I experienced no adverse effects whatsoever! People who say that ozone-treated ocean water is "dead" water only demonstrate a profound lack of knowledge. In Germany alone, over 10 million patients have been treated with "Auto-hemo-therapy" over the past several decades to treat many viral infections e.g. HIV, Lyme disease and others.
USES OF OZONE
Perhaps you are a smoker or live with someone who smokes or maybe work with people who do. That is a worrying scenario as cigarette smoke has over 3,600 chemicals. Ozone will break those chemicals down into their basic molecular components, neutralizing them. It is capable of destroying tar, soot and oil in the lungs, benzene, vinyl chloride and other hydrocarbons. Having performed this task the ozone itself reverts to just plain oxygen!
Doctors regularly warn about the dangers of airborne gasses such as formaldehyde, carbon monoxide, and chemical pollutants given off by carpets, wallpaper, and furniture. Take for example formaldehyde. When formaldehyde is infiltrated by ozone it breaks down into carbon dioxide, water and oxygen. Well worth bearing in mind if you have pollutants in your house or workplace like these that you are not in a position to remove.
Carbon monoxide is a lethal gas and cannot easily be detected. It bonds with human blood 600 times faster than oxygen. Ozone changes carbon monoxide to carbon dioxide, a harmless gas. Solvents from fresh paint are instantly neutralized by ozone as are cooking smells, animal odors, cigarette smoke, garbage smells and mildew, etc.
Perfume can be intolerable for people suffering chemical insensitivities. An ozonator may be the answer. In some countries people wear tiny ozone generators around their neck just for this reason - to neutralize pollutants, perhaps on a journey through heavily polluted areas. Bacteria, molds, fungi and even mildew are destroyed when they react with ozone as the outer membranes or 'shells' of these micro-organisms contain receptors that absorb ozone to their own demise. They are anaerobic, meaning that they can thrive only where oxygen levels are depleted. Ozone increases oxygen levels. Viruses can also be destroyed by ozone on contact.
In the case of polio only 0.012ppm removes all viral cells in seconds. As you know, there isn't an effective antibiotic that will touch a virus. Ozone is a particularly safe therapy for any viral application - provided that certain precautions are respected.
The Food and Drug Administration in the USA declares 0.05ppm as the safe level for 24 hour a day inhalation in the USA. However, natural outdoor levels vary between 0.03 and 0.05ppm and go several times higher than this at times and in certain ideal locations can reach 0.65ppm, so, nature then breaks the FDA's rulings! Even at these higher rates no harm has been caused, in fact the opposite is the case.
In cleaning water, ozone is more efficient even than chlorine, in fact an ozone level of 0.04ppm in just 4 minutes has been shown to kill bacteria, mold and fungus. Giardia and Cryptosporidium cysts are susceptible to ozone but are unaffected by normal levels of chlorine in water. Ozone is 25 times more effective than hypochlorous acid, 2,500 times more effective than hypochlorite, and 5,000 times more than chloramine. (Results measured by the time needed to kill 99.99% of all micro-organisms). Chlorine reacts with organic materials to form chloroform, carbon tetrachloride etc. generally known as trihalomethanes. These have been implicated as carcinogens in the development of kidney, bladder and colon cancer. However, ozone when used repeatedly and in conjunction with charcoal, reacts with organic materials to break them down into simpler compounds that are not dangerous.
Ozone swimming pool cleaners are very popular and one of the reasons is that, when water is ozonated, algae is oxidized and floats to the top, metabolic by-products of algae are oxidized also, removing odor and taste. As a consequence, cleaning the pool is not such a frequent or time-consuming job, chemicals are not required and the water is smelling good and clean (just makes you want to jump in).
In cleaning the air, ozone reacts with odors oxidizing them into harmless compounds or carbon dioxide. We would have sufficient ozone but all the chemical gasses released into the atmosphere by cars and factories are using it up. Surely oxygen generators would be sufficient? Well, ozone is approximately 3,500 times more potent an oxidant than oxygen. High mountain areas produce high levels of ozone. This is why people with respiratory problems, TB etc. used to be sent to such areas.
As with anything i.e. oxygen, water etc. too much can be harmful, (although ozone is an incredibly safe gas and consistently spoken of as the safest therapy, non toxic and with no evidence of free radical damage) yet nobody has ever died from using ozone and it has been in use for many years, like 60 years in Europe!.
Only chronic high overdose may give problems and then there would be warning symptoms such as coughing for more than 30 minutes continuously. At such times Vitamin C (5,000mg) - an antagonist of ozone - can reverse the effect.
THE HISTORY OF OZONE THERAPY
Over 1000 scientific papers have been written about ozone and its benefits. The first ozone generators were developed by Werner von Siemens in Germany in 1857. In 1870 ozone was used therapeutically to purify blood by C. Lender in Germany. Today there are over 3,000 places around the world using ozone to clean their water and sewage. In 1885 The Florida Medical Association published 'Ozone' by Dr. Charles J. Kenworth, MD, detailing the use of ozone for therapeutic purposes.
In 1896 Nikola Tesla patented his first ozone generator and went on to form a company selling ozone machines to doctors. Tesla also made ozonated olive oil and sold it to naturopaths, just as we do today. Some of Tesla's generators are still working today.
In 1902 J. H. Clark published a Dictionary of Practical Materia Medica (London) and described the successful use of ozonating water to treat anemia, diabetes, influenza, morphine poisoning, canker sores, strychnine poisoning, and whooping cough.
Just a few years later Ozone was used to treat tuberculosis, anemia, chlorosis, tinnitus, asthma, bronchitis, hay fever, pneumonia, gout and syphilis.
During World War I, Ozone was used to treat gangrene, the effects of poison gas and wounds. In 1915 Dr. A. Wolff used it to treat colon cancer and cervical cancer. But one man we may have all heard of is Dr. Otto Warburg of the Kaiser Institute in Berlin. In 1926 he announced that the cause of cancer is a lack of oxygen at the cellular level. He went on to become the only man to receive two Nobel Prizes for Medicine and be nominated for a third.
Dr. Wendell Hendricks wrote "cancer is a condition within the body where the oxidation has become so depleted that body cells have degenerated beyond control, the body is so overloaded with poisons that it sets up a tumor mass to harbor these poisons and remove them from general activity within the body". Very similar to Dr. Clark's views.
In fact, very recently Dr. Clark has said that to remove PCBs from the body - the fourth immune reducing factor in cancer patients - we need to take 2 tablespoons of ozonated olive oil three times a day for 2-3 weeks.
So, Ozone has quite a history and is well established as a successful therapy with over 7,000 German doctors using it daily and Russian doctors even bubbling it into brine for use on burn victims.
USES OF OZONE AT HOME
To get back to uses within the home setting, ozone used for cleaning fruit and vegetables has an interesting side effect because ethylene given off by fruit accelerates the ripening process, however, ozone reacts with ethylene reducing rapid ripening and thereby extending shelf life (Grocers note!).
Regular use of ozone in the home can ensure high levels of immunity from most common diseases. It is even said that that ozonating water removes fluorine too.
It is comforting to know that breathing the ozone bubbled through olive oil or water is not only safe but beneficial. Some recommend this procedure for respiratory diseases such as bronchitis, asthma etc.
If olive oil is ozonated for several weeks, the oil will start to change, it foams and becomes a gel. If kept in a refrigerator this oil holds onto its ozone for up to 10 years and can be used as required on cuts, all skin complaints, burns, bites, herpes and as a lubricant when required in this setting. This gel is 95% as active as ozone gas. As this gas cleans up your body, the immune system responds, arteries are cleaned, veins also, circulation improves with blood vessels unclogged, blood and lymph normalizes, inflammation reduces, bleeding stops, cardiac problems reduce as plaque is oxidized in arteries (such patients are often dependent upon oxygen tanks throughout the day), the brain and memory respond to the increases in oxygen produced, heavy metals are chelated, tumor metabolism is inhibited and the outer lipid layer of malignant cells is broken down and destroyed.
Successful use of this therapy has been found with gangrene of the fingers and toes and with destroying the viruses that causes hepatitis. Many doctors are using it internally via rectum, vagina, mouth and ear. Some specialists inject it straight into the tumor, into the portal vein for the liver or into the arm.
There are ozone body suits that you can step into following a hot bath, so as to get it into the skin - referred to by nutritionists as the third kidney.
Dr. Michael Carpendale wrote an article in Science magazine (Vol. 209 22 August 1980) and stated that the growth of human cancer cells from lung, breast and uterine cancers were selectively inhibited in a dose-dependent manner by ozone at 0.3ppm to 0.8ppm in ambient air during 8 days of culture. Exposure to ozone at 0.8ppm inhibited cancer cell growth more than 90%. Evidently the mechanisms for defense against ozone are impaired in human cancer cells.
Today, both the FDA and EPA certify ozone as able to destroy 99.9992% of all pathogenic germs in the purification of water whilst destroying 99.9992% of pollutants in the water simultaneously.
Many doctors/therapists are testifying to the effectiveness of ozone with the HIV virus.
We know that there are many diseases or health conditions that have had a positive outcome using Ozone. There is no way we could list all the conditions it is successful with, all the cancers, all the bacterial, parasitic diseases etc. Unsolicited testimonials are sited on the Internet and covering such a wide variety of conditions, including one of silicon poisoning following leakage from a breast implant!
In recent years we have seen headlines such as "Burnt diesel fumes the worst carcinogen". There are ozonators that you can have in your car, plugged into the cigarette lighter (how ironic), household ozonators for water, oil and air, and larger industrial units.
Dr. Hulda Clark uses ozone therapy for different purposes in her therapy:
* To eliminate freon from the body, use 1 glass of ozonated water daily. Ozonate water for 5-7 minutes. Drink within 20 seconds of ozonating.
* To eliminate PCBs from the body, use ozonate olive oil. Ozonate oil for 30 minutes. Take 2 tbs. of ozonated olive oil 3 times daily for 2-3 weeks. PCBs are the fourth factor Dr. Clark has found that inhibits immunity in cancer patients (and other diseases, especially AIDS). It also makes zapping less effective.
* Much like frankincense oil, ozonated olive oil inhibits virus replication and is especially recommended for HIV victims or other viral conditions.
* To kill Ascaris (a parasite) and certain tapeworms. Ascaris and dog tapeworms are especially hardy, and when they are killed with the regular herbal program, they decay and release more eggs and stages than the body can handle. Ozonated oil can penetrate their membranes and deactivate the eggs and stages on the inside before they open up. Dr. Clark recommends taking 3 tbs. of ozonated oil per day, for 3 weeks, together with 2 times 3 Cysteine capsules.
Do not allow this following article (offered by the author) to provoke you to experiment with ozone. Please contact a doctor or therapist with experience in this field or maybe read more about the uses of ozone in the many books printed on the subject before jumping to any conclusions or action.
OZONE THERAPY (Rectal insufflation) for Lyme Disease - here you have it, a better therapy. At least one that works!
An eloquent (1999) case...
I have taught a young girl, 13 years old, Miss R.S. of Bend, Oregon, to introduce one liter (one quart) of pure ozone, derived electronically from medical oxygen, into her descending colon by means of rectal insufflation. This was done once daily over a period of one week. Her condition before treatment was alarming because she was in her second month after being bitten by a tick during a Colorado vacation, and all the initial classical Lyme Disease symptoms had indeed manifested in her body despite the recommended oral antibiotic treatment. Severe pain had her doubled over constantly, she was unable to walk upright, and was crying with constant pain.
After only three days, three one-minute treatments daily, she walked upright, without pain. Slight recurrences manifested after the fourth day when excessive flatulence and a larger-than-usual meal prevented her from taking the full measure of one liter of the O3 gas rectally via a small catheter.
This disease (Lyme) is a bacterium, a toxic pathogen, introduced into a victim's body through the skin as the result of an insect bite, a deer tick. The symptoms of Lyme Disease appear due to the body's valiant efforts to deal with this toxic overload. Under normal circumstances I would call it a tall job for the immune system but when this is compromised in any way, even with simple fatigue, then this bacterium easily invades the body - with impunity and with vim and vigor.
In the future, the preferred treatment for Lyme can very well become Ozone gas. As I said above, this pathogen-killing gas is produced from medical oxygen and becomes an unstable multi-atomic free oxygen source with the use of a portable electronic cold plasma or corona discharge process. Taken into the body rectally, Ozone enters the bloodstream via the portal circulatory system, detoxifies the liver and enters the bloodstream. There it oxidizes the bacterium wherever it is found and deactivates it in vivo, in the bloodstream. If we analyze the available literature, we come to the conclusion that, as effective as Ozone is against the tick bacterium, so it is also against AIDS, hepatitis and most bacterial, fungal and viral conditions. Ozone therapy has been practiced in Europe for the past 40 years with tremendous success and practically NO side effects have been reported. There are many sites on the Internet that show information on this subject.
Aside from Ozone treatments, the better the immune system functions and is able to cope with the morphing toxins, the faster it will be eradicated. It is very much like getting bitten by a snake or getting Salmonella poisoning. After a period of crisis, of disease symptoms, the body goes into a healing crisis, regenerates and heals, if given a chance. Normally, the various antibodies of a good immune system should be able to cope with this assault but the more run-down one is, the worse one's life style is, the more degenerated the diet is, well, you can image that not much energy and strength is left over to fight tick toxins. So, the cleaner the patient lives, the faster he/she will recuperate and none of those possible repercussions, like heart problems, arthritis etc. need to manifest at all.
FURTHER OZONE INFORMATION
Medical Ozone has alleviated the suffering of millions of people suffering from cancer, AIDS, Alzheimer's, herpes, hepatitis, and more. It has been used safely for over fourty years in Europe and countries throughout the world with remarkable results and the lowest level of side-effects (.000005) of any medical treatment. Thousands of doctors are calling it the most significant medical development in the last one hundred years, but it is not available in the U.S. The fact that it is inexpensive to produce, easily administered, and difficult to patent (ozone is a naturally occurring substance) has made it far from promising to major pharmaceutical companies. The FDA has barred its medical use in the U.S. pending satisfaction of absurdly stringent research requirements. This has effectively created a medical blackout so thorough that most medical doctors have never heard of medical ozone. Others have ignored it, taking the FDA's lack of approval as a sign that the treatment is not worth their attention.
But perhaps the FDA is not the best judge. Pharmaceutical companies (lobbyists) have representatives on nearly all FDA committees (and they provide a large percentage of medical school funding. It only makes sense that they would not be supportive of something which may be very effective and undersell the industry; and medical ozone has proven to be very, very effective.
WHAT IS MEDICAL OZONE?
Ozone is simply an energized form of oxygen. It is created when electric or ultraviolet energy causes oxygen atoms to temporarily recombine in groups of three. The result is an unstable, highly reactive molecule that is quick to oxidize with other substances, such as bacteria or viruses.
Ozone was first used commercially to purify water in Europe over one hundred years ago. It is still being used today in over two thousand cities around the world, including Paris, Montreal, Moscow and Los Angeles. Oxygen and Ozone are bubbled through the water, killing bacteria and viruses, reducing odor and taste, and leaving the water purified and safe to drink. This process is analogous to treatment of human blood.
Ozone is typically used in medical treatment through one of two ways. The first is through rectal insufflation, in which the ozone is absorbed into the body through the major arteries in the colon. The second is through auto-hemotherapy. In this treatment, blood is drawn from the patient and has ozone bubbled through it. Within a few minutes the blood is returned to the patient. In both treatments, ozone is pulled directly into the blood and spreads quickly throughout the entire body.
Once inside the body, the ozone attaches itself to diseased cells. Cells infected with a virus are already weakened because they are being used as a host by the parasitic disease. This weakening shows up as lowered levels of enzymatic activity in the cell wall, or "lipid envelope." This substandard protein coating is imbalanced and incomplete, and it is the perfect attractor for the extra oxygen present in medical ozone.
Once the ozone attaches itself to the infected cell, the two dissolve and are soon flushed from the system. Healthy cells are completely unaffected, and there is no residual toxicity.6 Repeat treatments are often necessary because viruses seem to be more susceptible at different stages in their growth. As the ozone reaction winds down, a new one must be introduced to react with any viruses left over from the previous treatment.
Ozone has been used in this way to treat a variety of illnesses. Cancer is one such example. In 1966 Nobel Prize winner Otto Warburg, Ph.D., discovered that cancer cells function best in the absence of oxygen. These cells live on fermentation rather than respiration. The key precondition for the development of cancer is a lack of oxygen at the cellular level. In 1988 the peer reviewed American journal Science published laboratory evidence proving that ozone selectively inhibits the growth of cancer cells.
"The implications of this are enormous," says Dr. G. Wasser, Wasser Clinic, Duisberg, Germany: "Whenever you have a disease, systemic, or in an area for instance in your brain, there is a lack of oxygen, and oxygen is very vital. You can heal, for instance, brain stroke if you get the patient in the first forty-eight hours. In one case a patient had a third stroke. The first and second were treated in a hospital without ozone, [and large scars were left on the brain]. The third was treated at home with ozone [and there was but a very small spot on the brain where the stroke occurred], and when a scar is that small after a brain stroke, the patients aren't paralyzed. I can give you a table of brain strokes in the U.S. from 1971 to 1990. There were 50,097 brain strokes, two out of 1,000 died and 15% are so disabled they need total care around the clock. I can't extrapolate from my 40 patients, but in 40 patients no one is dead, no one is disabled, and there are no side effects. None."
Similar achievements have been made with the AIDS virus. In 1988 Michael Carpendale, M.D. co-authored startling evidence presented at the AIDS Conference in Stockholm, Sweden. He said, "We worked on the AIDS virus to try and see how quickly we could inactivate this, and at the same time compare it to what effect it had on a healthy white blood cell, and we found that we could produce an enormous inactivation of the virus, reducing it down from a million viruses to no viruses at all at approximately four micrograms of ozone; and twice that dose had no adverse effect on the healthy white blood cells."
Another study conducted by the Anglo American Research group was done under strict scientific protocol "over the border," where this research is legal. Five AIDS patients whose diseases were in a very advanced stage participated. Two of them "didn't have a T-4 (a blood cell used in the body to fight disease) between them." The study lasted ten days, after which the patients were again tested at the University of Arizona and then went home with their doctor, who took with them equipment to continue treatment. The results were amazing: all of the patients are still alive and well except one, who has since died of T.B., which was not AIDS related.
Ozone can also be used to treat many other viral and bacterial-related illnesses, such as herpes. It is reported that when an attack of herpes is in progress, daily treatments for 5-10 days usually causes complete disappearance of symptoms. If treatment continues for 4-6 weeks, whether the symptoms are present or not, the virus can be eradicated from the system.
This treatment has also been found to successfully treat hepatitis and even Alzheimers, in which ozonating the blood has been shown to precipitate the aluminum buildup, which is thought to be a factor in the disease. German doctors have had similar success with Parkinson's, Multiple Sclerosis, and other nervous system diseases.
In addition to being bubbled through the blood, the treatment can be applied externally for burns, wounds, and other skin conditions. There are a host of applications available for ozone treatment, and many more remain to be discovered. All this begs the question: Why aren't we using it?
When Europeans came to the U.S. for the last summer Olympics, they refused to swim in the pool because the water was treated with chlorine. The Olympic committee invested thousands of dollars in order to have an ozone water purification system installed in the pool. After the Olympics were over, the Committee had the ozone system torn out and the old chlorine system reinstalled. Chlorine is a big money maker for major U.S. pharmaceutical companies. These companies spend lots of advertising dollars for television coverage of events like the Olympics.
Ozone does for your body what it does for the pool. Ozone occurs naturally at the protective layer around the earth's surface, and is also produced when sunlight reacts with air pollution in our cities. Most scientific studies in North America have concentrated on the negative effects of breathing ozone. As a result, many doctors assume there is no medicinal use for it.
But for the last thirty years it has been used successfully to treat over 40 medical conditions, from gangrene to AIDS. In 1980, a German study surveyed more than one thousand therapists who had given more than five million ozone treatments. Ninety percent of the therapists reported the treatments effective. This study also revealed that ozone had one of the lowest levels of side effects (.000005) of any medical treatment.
What's more, the ozone appeared to sensitize the body to other medical treatments, allowing doctors to use up to half the amount of drugs they would usually use for treatment.
One of the ways in which companies have tried to profit from ozone is by patenting ozone technology. Medizone is one such company. "We filed with the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) for the sale of the drug produced by the equipment and its use in the treatment of AIDS" said Terrence McGrath, former Medizone president. "The FDA required that we carry out research to demonstrate its non-toxicity and likely efficacy, and that we have done."
The FDA is responsible for regulating all the drugs and medical devices marketed in the United States. It approved the use of AZT, which had been refused as a cancer drug due to its fatal toxicity prior to the AIDS pandemic. To date, the FDA has failed to approve any ozone equipment for medical use.
Many people feel the FDA is serving a vital purpose in protecting them from dangerous treatments. But Herbert L. Ley, Jr., M.D., former commissioner of the FDA has a different view: "People think the FDA is protecting them it isn't. What the FDA is doing and what people think it is doing are as different as night and day."
Medizone has spent more than two million dollars on research at major medical centers to prove ozone's safety and effectiveness. But this has still not satisfied the FDA's requirement. Conservative medicine demands double-blind studies, which are expensive and in some cases bordering on unethical. In a double-blind study, half the patients must receive a placebo in order to determine the effect of the actual treatment. This means that in order to determine if a treatment has an effect on AIDS patients, half of them must be told they are being given a cure when they are not. With a disease like AIDS, being given false treatment for a year is more than just a minor setback.
In Germany doctors are allowed to use ozone treatments, and no one is willing to put seriously ill patients through a double-blind study. As Horst Kief, M.D. puts it "Perhaps in Germany we have treated no less than ten million people in the last forty years, maybe more. Now you have the biggest test with ten million people. What do you want more?"
It takes an average of eleven years for any new drug or treatment to be approved for marketing in the U.S..10 Medizone has been unable to fund a study since 1990 using large animals as required by the FDA before approval can be granted to test ozone therapy on humans.
"It's a little bewildering for us to understand the reluctance of many of the regulatory authorities to approve a clinical trial for a drug that has been on the European market the best part of twenty-five years," said Terrance McGrath in 1990.
"In the FDA, drug companies have representatives on nearly all the committees. If there is something which may be very effective and may undersell the average drug company, of course they are not going to be very pleased if it gets developed" said Michael Carpendale, M.D. "It might be very difficult for them to compete with that and ozone is obviously inexpensive to produce, and it is very potent; if it works even half as well as the Germans claim it does, everyone should be using it now."
"If somebody wants to get well I think his or her attitude will be, 'Why should I be confined to only one approach if that approach doesn't work; why am I not allowed to do anything else?'" says Arthur Levin, Ph.D, of the Health Policy Advisory Center of New York City. "I think people want to have that freedom of choice and raise legitimate questions with the system about whether they should be told by the state in a sense that there is only one or two ways they should be treated. We have in a sense a sort of state-authorized religion of healing, which is a certain kind of medicine, and anything outside that is characterized as quackery."
Most public sector medical research is funded through the National Institutes of Health (NIH) in the U.S. This is a federal agency with an annual budget of more than two billion dollars, supporting research in more than two thousand American labs. The NIH has a mandate to investigate all promising treatments in the public interest. Since its discovery, hundreds of papers about ozone treatment have been submitted to the NIH. But todate no ozone research has been done.
The mishandling and deliberate exclusion of research in the area of ozone treatments points to a state of conflict of interests in the U.S. health care system. While on the one hand it is important to be aware that treatments for such devastating diseases as cancer and AIDS do exist, it is equally important to address the disregard given these above-described "alternative" treatments.
HOW OZONE IS USED AT OCEAN PLASMA
Ocean Plasma Inc. uses Ozone in its manufacturing process to purify the raw but filtered ocean water.
Essentially, they take a bottle of compressed medical Oxygen and electronically convert it from bi-atomic oxygen to tri-atomic oxygen (also called Ozone). They then introduce it into the filtering oceanwater stream by means of a special venturi adapter at the rate of 1/2 liter of tri-atomic oxygen per minute. This causes the Ozone/air combination to be mixed with the filtering ocean water - temporarily - because eventually, Ozone reverts back to Oxygen and everything is "normal" again, except for the absence of anaerobic bacteria and pathogens, if any were present to begin with.
Once a tote (1,000 liter container) is filled (it takes about 20 minutes), this process is repeated back into its original tote. Therefore each and every liter of Ocean Plasma is doubly filtered and ozonated. If inactive for longer than three months, and prior to any subsequent manufacturing or filling process, the water is once more double filtered, agitated and ozonated. Then the solution is once more tested by an independent lab to prove total absence of bacterial pathogens.
|Ocean Plasma's water purification protocol (simplified) |
The purpose of Ocean Plasma's independent lab tests is to establish whether there are any pyrogenic or pathogenic substances present in their Ocean Water that would be antagonistic to the human body. There are none in Ocean Plasma's products. The triple filtration sequence (down to an absolute of 0.2 microns) and the double Ozone conditioning is as far as anyone would want to go to 'cold-purify' Ocean Water. This is not a sterilization process - only heat sterilization in an autoclave would ensure complete sterilization. This, to be sure, is not desirable - just as it would not be desirable to completely sterilize one's intestinal tract or any blood used for transfusions.
The above article eloquently tells the story of Ozone's ability to destroy anaerobic bacteria. That's HARMFUL bacteria to be sure; however, Ocean Plasm Inc. makes no claims whatsoever regarding the use of its product (oceanwater) for any medical end-use! Anyone who wants to learn more about the properties and virtues of Oceanwater is urged to look up our companion site at http://oceanplasma.org/ .
