What is Ozone?

Ozone (O3) is a gas that is used medically in low concentrations and made with
pure oxygen but is better known for its location in the Earth’s stratosphere where it
exits in high concentrations. O3 is an agent of reaction. A molecule of ozone is
“unstable” and wants to give an oxygen atom away (this is called oxidation). This is
the basis of ozone’s reactivity. The free oxygen readily combines with other
substances. On a basic level it activates the immune system and stimulates oxygen
metabolism in cells.

Short History

  • Used medically since the early 1900s by Nikola Tesla
  • Suppressed use in the US and other countries when pharmaceuticals took over
  • 1976-date FDA says “Ozone is a toxic gas with no known medical use”
  • Germany continued development via generators and medical usages
  • 10 major books and over 1,700 studies in the last 20 years

Clinical effects

The clinical effects that have been experienced are based on concentration and administration. 1) Bactericidal, fungicidal, and viricidal 2) Anti-Inflammatory 3) Analgesic effect 4) Detoxification 5) Activation of oxygen-dependent processes 6) Optimization of pro- and anti-oxidant systems (which is one of the main effects of systemic ozone therapy 7) hemostatic effect (dose dependent) 8) Immune-modulating

Methods of delivery

  • External (ointments, bagging, antiseptic saline)
  • Parenteral (major autohemotherapy MAHT through IV with patients’ using approximately 40-60 ml of your own blood; minor autohemotherapy mAHT injected intramuscularly; subcutaneously into biologically active points, paravertebral IM injections
  • Enteral (intake of ozonated distilled water by mouth, rectal insufflations with ozone oxygen mixture, or vaginal insufflation)
