Hi friends,
Here is something from the desk of a naturopath.

'Healing Power of Ozone And Hydrogen Peroxide
by Dr.Malay Fichadia

Oxygen therapies alter the body's chemistry to help overcome disease,
promote healing and improve overall function. These therapies have
been found to be effective in treating a wide variety of conditions
including infections (viral, fungal, parasitic and bacterial),
circulatory problems, chronic fatigue syndrome, arthritis, allergies,
cancer and multiple sclerosis. All human cells, tissues and organs
need oxygen to function. Oxygenation saturates the body with oxygen
through the use of oxygen gas, sometimes at high pressure
(hyperbaric). This increases the total amount of available oxygen in
the body. Insufficient oxygenation may damage normal tissues, however
oxygenation employed under strictly controlled conditions can have
very positive therapeutic effects. Otto Warburg, Directory of the Max
Planek Institute for cell physiology in Germany, twice nominated for
the Nobel laureate, proposed that a lack of oxygen at the cellular
level may be the prime cause of cancer and that oxygen therapies could
be the effective treatment. He demonstrated that when normal cells in
tissue cultures are deprived of oxygen they became cancer cells and
that oxygen could kill these cancer cells.

Oxidation Therapies
The word Oxidation refers to a chemical reaction whereby electrons are
transferred from one molecule to another. The molecules that 'donate'
electrons are said to be oxidized, whereas the molecules that accept
electrons are called oxidants. A healthy state of oxidative balance is
necessary for optimal function of the body. Under repeated
environmental stress, oxidative function is weakened, because
oxidation is partially blocked by toxicity in the body's normal
oxidative process. Healthy cells need oxygen. Most infections occur
because of the invasion of anaerobes that do not thrive in an oxygen-
rich environment. Deprivation of oxygen occurs in the body, by
exposure to polluted air, sedentary lifestyle or junk food diets
encouraging anaerobic microbes to proliferate. An over-growth of
harmful microbes will lead to the breakdown of enzymatic reactions in
the cells, overloading them with metabolic wastes, ending in cell
death. Under similar anaerobic conditions, cells tend to mutate to
more primitive life forms turning from aerobic to anaerobic
respiration for energy synthesis. Dr. Otto Warburg demonstrated that
the primary cause of cancer is the replacement of oxygen in the
respiratory chemistry of normal cells.

Properties of Medical Ozone
At the higher range of concentration (three and a half to five percent
ozone in oxygen mixture) ozone exhibits a strong germicidal effect by
oxidative destruction. The oxidative power of ozone has proven to be
effective in destroying lipid-enveloped viruses such as Epstein Barr,
herpes, cytomegalovirus and viruses that cause hepatitis.

One study indicates that ozone treatment was 97 to 100 percent
effective in destroying HIV in vitro (Journal of American Society of
Hematology, October 1, 1992). At concentrations below approximately
three and a half percent, the three main properties of ozone can be
observed by its oxidative influence on the oxygen metabolism, the
induction of specific enzymes and the activation of immune competent
cells. It is these systemic influences of ozone that cause it to be
such a potent therapeutic tool, because most of the diseases affecting
humans today can be traced to diminishing levels of oxygen and a
compromised immune system.

Ozone and Hydrogen Peroxide Improves Oxygen Metabolism
Ozone improves the delivery of oxygen to hypoxic tissues, as well as
reactivating the oxygen metabolism of cells. The mechanisms of these
systemic actions involve both direct and indirect processes. Ozone
directly changes the electric charges of the erythrocyte membranes
increasing the flexibility of the erythrocytes, thus enhancing the
flow properties of the blood and the transport of oxygen to the cells
and tissues. This is especially applicable in arterial occlusion
disease whereby "Rouleu formation" clumping of the erythrocytes is

The indirect mechanism consists of ozonolysis, i.e. the ionizing
reaction of ozone with the unsaturated fatty acids in the cellular
membrane produces peroxides. It must be pointed out that ozone behaves
as an ion, not a free radical under normal physiological blood pH and
therefore no radical chain reaction occurs to cause oxidative damages.
The reaction activates the enzyme 2, 3 Diphosphoglycerate (2, 3-DPG )
in hemoglobin to release oxygen. This is of particular importance to
diabetics in the fermentation of sugar. The growth of cancer cells is
a fermentation process that can be initiated only in the relative
absence of oxygen.

Ozone is one of nature's most powerful oxidants. It is used in water
purification and sewage treatment and is applied medically in Europe
and the US to treat everything from wounds and colitis to cancer,
stroke and AIDS. It is administered as an ozone/oxygen (03/02) gas
mixture. According to the dosage and concentration range, medical
ozone activates the Immune System. It is well documented that ozone
has activated monocytes and lymphocytes and induced the production of
an array of cytkines such as interleukin, interferon and tumor-
necrosis factor. (The Journal of International Medical Research 1994).
Ozone has the ability to elicit endogenous production of cytokines.
Ozone is not toxic, therefore it is an indispensable therapeutic
modality, because the most devastating diseases of our times are
characterized by depressed immune function seen in chronic viral
diseases, cancer and AIDS. Of course restoration of the immune system
depends on a total approach to detoxification, lifestyle modification
and supportive therapies.

Route of Administration
Treatments: Auto-hemotherapy, which involves bland treatment exvivo of
blood with ozone and prompt rein fusion into the donor is the popular
procedure among German physicians. Other methods include direct
infusion of gaseous ozone/oxygen mixture either intravenously, or
intra-arterially (particularly in critical limbs ischemia). It has
been proven that even direct delivery of ozone into the blood vessels
has very low risk factors. No air which contains nitrogen ever enters
the body, so an air embolus cannot occur. Colorectal insufflation's of
ozone/oxygen, much like an enema, has been used to treat colitis,
fistula and colon cancer. Vaginal insufflation is an excellent
treatment for pelvic inflammatory disorders and Candida infestation in
women. Ozone is also excellent for topical treatment of infected
wounds, ulcers and burns, especially those that are difficult to heal.

Therapeutic Indication
The modern development of ozone application in medicine began in the
1950s in Europe and gradually spread throughout Europe to Australia,
Israel, and many other countries. As far back as World War 1, ozone
was used medically to treat wounds and other infections. Over 5000
physicians worldwide routinely use ozone in their medical practice. I
have personally used ozone in my own practice and found it to be an
effective therapy. When it is incorporated into a holistic approach of
cleansing there is virtually no known side effect of ozone treatment
if it is applied properly. Specific therapeutic applications of ozone
include the treatment of vascular disease such as stroke, obstructive
arteriopathy, venous insufficiency, cancer, acute and chronic viral
diseases, ulcers, infected wounds, gangrenes, burns, inflammatory
bowel disease such as Crohn's disease, ulcerative colitis and spinal
disc problems. It is also used in dentistry as a disinfectant and in
pediatrics for the treatment of viral and bacterial infections of the
intestines. In geriatrics, its principal indication is in circulatory
disorders. In particular the increase of oxygen supply to the brain is
of great benefit.

Ozone, with its miraculous properties and accompanied by its lack of
toxicity, is undoubtedly an important tool in medicine. It is an
unusual double-edged sword. It defends the body via stimulation of the
immune system and at the same time it improves oxygenation and
metabolism. Antioxidants protect cell membranes from free radicals.
These oxygen modulators are believed to destroy free radicals by
feeding them electrons which change their chemical structure into more
stable compounds, like H202 (hydrogen peroxide), that actually enhance
the oxidation process by crating moe cellular energy.

How Cellular Energy Is Increased With Ozone:
Dr. R. Beyerle, a noted ozone practitioner explains how cellular
energy is increased with ozone. "Once in the blood ozone reacts with
fatty acids and the cell membranes of erythrocytes. Ozone's reaction
at the membrane starts glycolysis, the breakdown of fats. This
increases ATP which is the energy system in the body. This in turn,
carries and releases oxygen molecules. More oxygen in the system
enables the organism to do a variety of things, since the body thrives
on oxygen. Production of a specific biochemical called 23DPG
diphosphoglycerate enables oxygen to be released from the hemoglobin
molecule. "Now all of a sudden we're freeing up more oxygen from the
hemoglobin molecule. Hemoglobin carries oxygen. Now we've got all this
oxygen released going throughout our vascular system and it has anti
microbial, antiviral activity".
