CONTEMPORARY OZONE APPLICATIONS – Kurt Donsbach
In order to appreciate ozone one must first understand fully the critical role oxygen plays in human life. Oxygen is by far the most important necessity of human life. It performs hundreds of tasks in the body, but the two most important are energy production and detoxification.
The production of energy in the body is accomplished by the combination of glucose with oxygen, producing ATP. The body makes an amount of ATP equivalent to your body weight every 24 hours. If you make 10% less ATP than normal, you will feel tired and sluggish. If ATP production falls too far, you will deteriorate rapidly, and die. Energy is life and the production of energy in the body depends upon oxygen.
The second important function of oxygen is to combine with metabolic waste products to allow their elimination from the body.
This process is called the oxidation reduction cycle. When insufficient oxygen is available, the detoxification process slows down, wastes pile up, circulation becomes sluggish, oxygen is prevented from reaching the cells and disease results. Thus, we can see that oxygen is essential to these two vital phases of life.
Since oxygen is the most critical requirement for life, the ingestion of substances that increase the level of oxygen in the body are the most beneficial to optimum health. The best sources of oxygen are ozone, hydrogen peroxide and magnesium peroxide.
Ozone treatment is safe because healthy cells are surrounded by an enzyme coating, which ozone does not penetrate. Bacteria and viruses have no such coatings and are oxidized on contact by ozone.
Ozone also promotes the production of glutathione peroxidase, catalase, reductase and superoxide dismutase which are the enzymes forming the cell wall coating and therefore cellular immunity is enhanced. Ozone also has a measurable benefit on the uptake and utilization of oxygen through improved glycolysis in red blood cells, reduction of clumping of red blood cells and the stimulation of mitochondrial respiration. This improved cellular respiration is invaluable in preventing cancer.
Cancer begins when a normal cell cannot get enough oxygen. If the level of oxygen available falls below 40%, in order to survive, the cell will begin to ferment sugar instead of burning it. This process is irreversible, and results in an energy output only 1/6 as great as oxidation. The cell then lacks the energy to manufacture a proper enzyme coating around itself. The governor on cell replication is switched off, and the cell can begin to make copies of itself wildly. This ungoverned cell replication is called cancer. When ozone is introduced into the area, it immediately attacks the unhealthy cells because they lack a proper enzyme coating. Healthy cells are untouched. If sufficient ozone is administered over time, the tumor will be dissolved.
The applications of medical ozone include performance enhancement, increased longevity, accelerated wound healing, dentistry, heart disease, all infections, treatment of all gastro-enteric diseases, immune stimulation, treatment of all cancers, and gerontology. Ozone also combines well with intravenous chelation therapy, which is used to treat arterial disease or heavy metal toxicity. Chelation therapy works quite slowly through a number of infusions, and adding ozone can speed this process up.
Ozone provides an immediate oxygen boost to heart tissue which can noticeably reduce the incidence of angina. It also improves brain function, because the brain uses over 15% of all the oxygen in the body.
Through the development of modern equipment, home usage of ozone therapy has become practical. Rectal and vaginal insufflation, combined with use of a body suit or bag, drinking of ozonated water and breathing ozone bubbled through olive oil, are established protocols for home usage.
The nasopharyngeal area is often the site of chronic minor infections, which become acute in cycles. Chronic sinusitis is probably one of the most common maladies of today.
The introduction of ozone into the ear canals can be of great benefit in reducing such chronic infections. At first, just do it for a few minutes.
Another method of getting ozone into the body is with use of a closed, one-person sauna. Since the pores will be open in the moist heat, ozone can be absorbed slowly and safely in large amounts through the skin. This method prevents the great fatigue of toxic shock sometimes encountered with other methods, because the oxidized toxins are sweated out through the skin rather than being dumped to the liver. This technique is particularly effective for bedsores, ulcers, non-healing wounds and burns.
Medical doctors in Europe have recognized the beneficial effects of ozone for over 80 years. German doctors have developed many different methods of administering ozone.
Medical ozone therapy is quite new to Britain and Canada , and only practiced by a few doctors. It is even less available in the US due to active persecution by the FDA. But in Germany , over 7000 doctors give ozone therapy daily. The medical use of ozone has an excellent safety record and no toxic side effects have been observed in millions of treatments over nearly 100 years.
The use of ozone for medical therapy is well-established and is being vigorously pursued by many clinicians. As technology develops, new techniques will emerge that will enlarge the scope of the effective use of this healing modality.
