Oxygen is the Engine of Life
Without oxygen we have no life. We can stop eating for a few weeks, stop drinking water for a few days, but most cannot go without breathing for more than a minute. We live in an oxygen environment because, just as fish are designed to live in water, we are designed to need oxygen to survive and thrive.
Our atmosphere contains 21% oxygen, which accounts for 52% of the mass of the earth’s crust. 96% of human body mass is made up of 4 elements: oxygen, carbon, hydrogen, and nitrogen. By mass, oxygen is the most abundant element in the human body (65%). Every cell needs oxygen for a metabolic function. If cells lack oxygen, they ferment, degenerate, and die.
Clearly, oxygen is the most critical nutrient for the human body to function. Everybody, be necessity, involuntarily breathes oxygen. The difference between the typical person at 20 years old and 70 years old is not about taking in oxygen but utilizing oxygen at the cellular level. Oxygen can either turn into energy in the cell or into free radicals. The key to health, and the correction and prevention of disease is optimum oxygen utilization.
Ozone is a gas consisting of three oxygen atoms. The atomic structure of oxygen is (O2). Ozone is an energized form of oxygen commonly called “super oxygen” because it contains an extra free molecule of oxygen to make the atomic structure (O3).
Although, chemically, ozone is oxygen, it has distinct physical properties. The three oxygen atoms of the ozone molecule are very unstable and rapidly become 02, releasing an oxygen atom (O_) that is combined with another oxygen atom to form 02. Thus, ozone turns into oxygen very rapidly, releasing an oxygen atom in the transformation process. The extraordinary action of medical ozone therapy is due to this oxygen releasing transformation process.
Scientists like Dr. W. Spencer Way now believe that the initial symptoms of oxygen deprivation, which constitutes the gradual oxygen starvation of the body’s seven trillion cells, are as follows:
2. Inability to concentrate
3. Memory loss
5. Irrational behavior
7. Chronic hostility
8. Mood swings
10. Mental disorientation
12. Overall body weakness
13. Muscle aches
16. Circulation problems
17. Acid stomach
19. Poor digestion
20. Susceptibility to cold, flue and infection
21. Bronchial congestion
22. Respiratory problems
24. Lowered immunity
25. Bacterial infections
26. Viral infections
28. Parasitic infections
These symptoms often begin with a vague feeling of uneasiness. Unchecked symptoms progress over time to advanced illness and disease. Cells undergoing partial oxygen starvation send out tiny panic signals collectively felt in the body as a vague continuing sensation of uneasiness, anxiety, and dread. These low-level generalized warnings tend to get tuned out by the individual experiencing it as mere background noise.
People rarely connect these vague feelings of helplessness, mental exhaustion, anxiety, despair, and daily emotional “ups and downs” with their cells crying out for help due to oxygen starvation.
The human body needs proper nourishment and removal of waste products to maintain health. By extension, the body’s cells need nourishment and proper removal of waste to remain healthy. It reasons that a human organism is determined to be healthy as a whole only if its comparable cells are healthy. Aging and much of disease is the decline of efficiency and effective functioning at the cellular level. Rapid decline of function at the organism level is considered abnormal and is commonly diagnosed in medicine as named disease states. Preventative medicine anticipates cellular functional decline as a precursor to the organism’s decline and searches for preventive solutions at the cellular level well in advance.
Aging and disease is accelerated when there is:
1. Imbalanced immune function
2. Diminished circulation
3. Declining levels of cellular oxygen & utilization
4. Impaired free radical scavenging
5. Inefficient cellular energy production
Rapid aging and the systematic progressive development of disease states can be slowed and modified through the strongly influential, cellular improving properties of ozone.
If ozone could be patented, it would be considered the greatest discovery in the history of medicine. There are well over 100 scientifically documented benefit of ozone as a therapeutic agent. Ozone is nature’s great purifier, cleanser and detoxifier because negatively charged ozone electrons are naturally attracted to positive charged pollutants. It is a very powerful antibacterial, germicidal, anti-cancer genic and anti-fungal agent. Ozone supports, restores, revitalizes, and boosts the immune system. It accelerates brain repair, relieves brain fog, improves circulation, combats chronic fatigue, purifies the skin, stimulates enzyme activity, and stimulates killer cell activity, as it detoxifies even the most deeply enriched toxins at the cellular level. Ozone inactivates viruses, bad bacteria, yeast, candida, and protozoa. Ozone is a powerful chelating agent, pulling out of cells heavy metals, old drug residues, and environmental pollutants. Ozone significantly improves oxygen uptake at the cellular level, facilitating proper cellular respiration and enhancing cellular energy production. It also supports healthy free radical scavenging and boosts antioxidant protection. The most common application of ozone’s beneficial properties is through intravenous autohemotherapy. However, other modes of application are also used.
Application forms are:
– Direct application to skin using a plastic bag (eg. Gangrene and burns)
– Subcutaneous infections (eg. Cellulitis)
– Intramuscular infection (eg. Rheumatism)
– Autohemotherapy à the most common application form for detoxification, cellular oxygen deficiencies, arthritis, diabetes, herpes, hepatitis, vascular disorders, circulatory disorders, immune disorders, gastrointestinal disorders, cancer, and heart disease
– Intravenous injection
– Intra-arterial injection à in case of obstruction of blood flow to the artery
– Intra-articular injection à in rheumatic diseases (eg. Osteoarthritis)
– Olive oil ozonized à application to skin, athlete’s foot, vaginal infections, sores, gingivitis, hemorrhoids, fistulas
Ozone is not a miracle drug, but is considered a powerful nutritional and detoxification component needed for regular healthy functions of the body.
Ozone is not “a panacea cure-all”, although as a therapeutic procedure it truly tips the scales to advantage the body’s natural healing process, obtaining relief where other therapies have failed.
Ozone may not make an old man into a teenager, but the quality of life to be expected at a given age range is raised to the highest level of its corresponding wellness spectrum.
Summarizing the benefits of ozone therapy, one of the leading professionals in the medical use of ozone in the United States, Dr. Frank Shallenberger says,
Ozone has five properties that account for why it works so well for most chronic age related conditions:
1. Ozone is a potent regulator of the immune system
This means that when the immune system is overactive (as in auto-immune disease), ozone will calm is down. Conversely, when the immune system is under active (as in cancer, AIDS, and chronic infections), ozone will stimulate it. This unique ability of ozone stems from its action on the membranes of white cells that causes them to produce immune related messenger molecules called cytokines. Examples of cytokines are gamma interferon, interleukin-2, colony stimulating factor, and TNF-alpha just to name a few.
2. Ozone stimulates increased oxygen uptake into cells
Ozone stimulates increased uptake of oxygen by stimulating the enzyme diphosphyoglycerate (DPG). DPG enables the release of oxygen from the hemoglobin molecule so that it can be taken up into the cell. In the absence of an adequate amount of DPG, our cells become starved for oxygen. This is a common problem in diabetics.
3. Ozone improves circulation
Ozone improves circulation by enhancing the flow characteristics of blood as a liquid. This effect enables more of the oxygen carrying hemoglobin to reach the capillaries where the cells ultimately will receive more oxygen then require. Many patients with chronic inflammatory conditions have impaired circulation.
4. Ozone increases antioxidant protection
Ozone increases antioxidant protection more than any other therapy including Vitamin C. Most people with chronic disease have deficient antioxidant defenses.
5. Ozone stimulates cellular energy production
Ozone is a powerful mitochondrial stimulant. The fundamental underlying cause behind all degenerative disease from diabetes to heart disease to cancer is decreased mitochondrial energy production. Ozone an often correct this problem.
Ozone is an ideal regulatory therapy for the conscientious individual because it complies with the father of modern day medicine’s first law of medicine. Hippocrates’s (the father of modern medicine) first law of medicine is, “Do the patient no harm,” while offering a safe, simple and effective therapy that can add a quality and quantity of life, health, and vitality to every citizen of our free republic.
Ozone has no harmful effects.
Ozone therapy is an incredible rejuvenator, normalizer, detoxifier, regenerators, immune enhancer, and physical and mental energizer. It may even improve to be history’s perfect preventative medicine that helps to elevate our nation to a higher level of wellness.
Most people in America are not only mineral deficient, but they are oxygen deficient. The quality of life at the cellular level is dependent on the utilization of oxygen. It makes sense to feed the cells of your body though ozone therapy as part of a total holistic, preventative, wellness lifestyle.
