                      OZONE - BREATH OF LIFE

                      By Robert Willner, M.D.

            OZONE (03) "Breath of God" (Ancient Hebrew)


 NOTE: THE USE OF OZONE THERAPY IN THE TREATMENT OF CANCER 
 OR ANY OTHER DISEASE IS UNPROVEN AND NOT RECOGNIZED BY THE
 FDA OR THE MEDICAL PROFESSION IN THE UNITED STATES.  THIS 
 ARTICLE PRESENTS INFORMATION ABOUT ITS HISTORY AND HOW IT 
 IS BEING USED BY THOUSANDS OF PRACTITIONERS THROUGHOUT THE
 WORLD.  ONLY 34 CASES OF SIDE EFFECTS OUT OF 5,500,000
 PATIENTS HAVE BEEN REPORTED.

 ABOUT OZONE

 The discovery and naming of ozone is attributed to
 Christian Friedrich Schonbein in 1840.  Its value in
 medicine was debated for many decades and references to its
 use were sporadic.  Dr. Albert Wolf, a German physician
 wrote in 1915.  "As regards the medical usability of ozone,
 the viewpoint of experimental science may be considered as
 being in direct opposition to the practical experiences
 gained by industry."  He used ozone successfully in the
 treatment of decubitus ulcers.  During the First World War
 (1915) ozone gas was used to purify the drinking water of
 major cities since 1901.  The first was Vienna and the most
 recent was Los Angeles.  It does not give water the
 disagreeable taste that chlorine does.  Although many
 authorities refer to it as poisonous and a hazard to life,
 like anything else on this planet, if used properly it is
 beneficial - in fact life would become extinct without
 ozone in our atmosphere.  The breathing of inappropriate
 concentrations is indeed harmful to the lungs, but in
 proper concentrations it purifies the air we breath.  Home
 and industrial ozonators are used throughout the world
 (including the United States, to purify the air), and yet,
 comments are being made publicly by authoritative figures
 that ozone is poisonous and a hazard to life.  This is
 indeed true if, as in the case of any substance on this
 earth, it is used in unsafe amounts.  Statements of this
 nature are unjustified and fraudulent when they are
 intended to misinform or alarm the public in a way that
 would indicate that ozone is unsafe under any
 circumstances.

 Ozone is created by the action of ultraviolet light or a
 strong electrical field on oxygen atoms.  The result if the
 forcing together of 3 atoms into unstable groups (03) that
 rather quickly break down into the usual oxygen molecule
 (02).  Ozone is lethal to almost all viruses, bacteria,
 fungus and cancer cells.  The scientific literature is
 replete with articles proving these facts.

 Ozone is formed in our atmosphere naturally by the effect
 of lightning on oxygen.  It is that wonderful sweet smell
 that you can detect after a summer storm.  It is nature's
 method of cleansing our atmosphere of contamination.  The
 poisonous ozone levels reported effecting our cities
 differs dramatically in that it represents the combining of
 the extensive overwhelming pollution with ozone
 insufficient to do the job.  If you wonder why cancer rates
 have tripled in the last 20 years, consider this startling
 fact:
 The oxygen level of the air we breathed 200 years ago is
 much higher than it is today.  (From the work of LaVosier -
 the discoverer of oxygen and current figures.

 In 1931, Dr. Otto Warburg was awarded the Nobel Prize in
 biochemistry.  Dr. Warburg demonstrated that the metabolism
 of a cancer cell was like that of a plant cell, which
 thrives on carbon dioxide and gives off oxygen as its waste
 product.  It actually represents the process of
 fermentation.  We are composed of animal cells and oxygen
 is essential for our assimilation of nutrients and the
 detoxification and elimination of waste products.  When
 ozone is introduced into the bloodstream, it is converted
 into oxygen, hydroxyperoxides and other beneficial free
 radical scavengers which actually seek out and destroy
 diseased cells.

 Nearly 50 years later, the prestigious journal SCIENCE,
 VOL. 209, 22 AUGUST 1980, published a paper entitled: OZONE
 SELECTIVELY INHIBITS GROWTH OF HUMAN CANCER CELLS.  This
 paper dealt with the exposure of human lung, breast, and
 uterine cancer tissue to ozone at concentrations of 0.3 to
 0.8 parts per million, well within the non-toxic limits
 tolerated safely during the average ten minute period that
 medically administered ozone takes and concentrations far
 less than that are used.  In the experiments, normal human
 cells were not effected at these levels.  The modern
 development of ozone application in medicine gained impetus
 in the 1950's in Europe, and its use gradually spread
 throughout Europe to Australia, Israel, and Brazil.

 INTRA-VENOUS OZONE GAS is extremely safe and effective
 against all infections.  The earliest evidence that I could
 locate of ozone's recommendation as therapy in the United
 States, appeared in an 1885 issue of the Journal of the
 Dade County Medical Association.  In spite of this and many
 other references prior to 1920, the FDA has illegally
 raided and confiscated ozone generators from the offices of
 advanced (alternative) physicians.

 Ozone is classified as a toxic gas if inhaled in large
 quantities.  However, it is not toxic when injected slowly
 into the body by intra-arterial injections, I.V.,
 intramuscularly, subcutaneously or by vaginal or rectal
 insufflation.  Ozone has no side effects when administered,
 using these methods, in the proper quantities and
 concentrations.  It does not effect healthy cells of any
 type adversely under those conditions.

 It is obvious why it is lethal to cancer cells.  The cancer
 (plant) cell is being given toxic waste product, while our
 normal cells are being given their essential for life. 
 Individuals receiving ozone for the first time are usually
 apprehensive.  It is scary to have "air" injected into
 their veins.  They have images of dying from an air
 embolus.  Almost everyone seems to recollect a murder
 mystery in which the villain killed his victim that way in
 the hopes of committing the perfect crime.  It will never
 happen in real life because:

 1.  Nitrogen would have to be present in order to cause a
     toxic reaction and therapeutically only pure medical
     grade oxygen is used.

 2.  It would take at least 50 cc of gas given within 2 to 3
     seconds.  That cannot even be accomplished with a very
     large bore 18 gauge needle.  The procedure is done with
     a fine 25 gauge needle.  Death could only occur
     intentionally, never accidentally.

 Specific therapeutic applications of ozone include the
 treatment of circulatory problems, decubitus ulcers, some
 forms of cancer (still under investigation as to how many),
 AIDS, viral diseases, wounds, scars, burns, gangrene and
 liver disease including hepatitis.  Ozone is the only
 substance known which is virucidal, bactericidal,
 fungicidal, protozoacidal and cancericidal.  Over 1,000
 medical papers exist in the world medical literature
 attesting to its efficacy in the treatment of disease in
 many tens of thousands of patients.  Typically it has been
 ignored in America because it cannot be patented. 
 Therefore, it is not profitable for the pharmaceutical
 industry to spend the millions of dollars necessary to
 prove its effectiveness by FDA standards.  It would reap
 scorn and outrage of incredible proportions if the truth
 were known.  The pharmaceutical industry and the FDA
 confuse and distort the role of ozone in our ecosystem and
 suppress its use therapeutically (even though, under law,
 it should be "grandfathered in").

 In addition to the many articles on the use of ozone in
 medicine, there are medical texts such as "THE USE OF OZONE
 IN MEDICINE" by Prof. Siegfried Rilling, M.D. and Renate
 Viebahn, Ph.D., and medical organizations in the major
 industrial nations of the world dedicated to the education
 and instruction of its use.


 A WORLD OZONE CONFERENCE has been held frequently since the
 early 1970's, the most recent was held in San Francisco
 (1993), and was attended by hundreds of doctors from many
 countries.  Russia sent seven scientists to present papers
 on their discoveries of its application.  In no other
 science does acceptance take as long as it does in
 medicine.  The use of deep freezing techniques took over 80
 years and television over 30 years, but in medicine, where
 human life is at stake, it can take 150 years and maybe
 never if there is no profit to be made.  Fortunately for
 mankind, there are still countries where investigation into
 non-drug, non-patentable, non-toxic and inexpensive
 therapies are still being carried out.

 SUBSTANTIAL EVIDENCE

 The PROCEEDINGS OF THE WORLD OZONE CONFERENCES have
 documented and published the techniques and dosages of
 ozone for its beneficial use in the following conditions.


 Cancer (Carcinoma)   Spastic Colon      Arterial Thrombosis
 Osteomyelitis        Acne               Proctitis
 Bladder Fistula      Wounds, Ulcers     Varicosities
 Radiation burns      Phlebitises        Parkinson's
 Ulcerative Colitis   Mucous Colitis     Chronic Cystitis
 Colitis              Chronic Cystitis   Coli Infections
 Chronic Hepatitis    Hemorrhoids        Anal Eczema
 Arthritis

 Intrarectal insufflation is excellent for diarrhea and
 candidiasis (in women intravaginal insufflation is also
 effective), and it is applied in this manner when
 intravenous administration is impractical or unavailable.

 As long as the lobbyists and influence peddlers for the
 pharmaceutical industry and the AMA are able to convince
 our representatives that anything outside of the mainstream
 of medicine is either useless, fraudulent or dangerous,
 many safe, non toxic and effective therapies will be denied
 to the public.  Our representatives must be made aware that
 although the safety is not usually the problem, proof of
 efficacy by the double-blind standard is economically
 prohibitive.  In those instances where such proof has been
 offered, fraudulent tactics by the opposition have resulted
 in blocking the use of some incredible therapies.


 If you want to know what benefits ozone bestows in disease,
 ask the doctors and patients who have used it - but, of
 course, that's anecdotal!!!

 THE IMPORTANCE OF OXYGEN
 
 Virtually every patient's room in a modern hospital is
 equipped for the administration of oxygen.  Certainly, an
 emergency room cannot be without one because it is required
 by law.  Deep breathing exercises are prescribed for
 patients with lung problems and for individuals recovering
 from surgery.  The narrow use of these techniques are
 indeed unfortunate, they should be routine for all
 patients.  The local gymnasiums and health spas routinely
 employ the proper use of deep breathing exercises.  The
 average person takes their respiration for granted.  There
 are large religious cults who incorporate consciousness of
 breathing as an important ritual of their beliefs.  Indians
 refer to breathing as an important ritual of their beliefs.
 Indians refer to "Prana" as a wonderful substance that God
 has provided for a healthy life.  Certainly, Prana is
 oxygen, or possibly even ozone.  Both aptly fit their
 description.  Obviously, chronic and gradual oxygen
 deprivation on metabolism is devastating and leads to an
 inadequate processing of the toxic wastes that our bodies
 are constantly producing.  One of the consequences of
 lowered oxygen concentration is the elevation of uric acid
 in the body.  This one compound alone, is implicated in a
 wide variety of metabolic problems.  The most common
 disease associated with uric acid disorder is gout and it
 is primarily due to an inability to process meat protein. 
 However, the far reaching effects on almost every system of
 the body gives us an indication of the widespread effect
 that a low-grade increase can have.  The formation of a
 stone in the kidneys and gallbladder, the blocking of
 circulation and the destruction of joints by the formation
 of crystals are just a few of the problems that arise. 
 There are literally hundreds of known biochemical reactions
 in the body that utilize oxygen.  There are probably many
 thousands more waiting to be discovered.  Acute deprivation
 of oxygen leads to a rapid death.  We are getting there
 more quickly than we should.  The importance of oxidative
 processes is discussed more fully elsewhere, but the
 relationship with the development and progress of cancer is
 no longer in doubt.  The use of ozone appears to go beyond
 the benefit of oxygen in the treatment of disease.  The
 production of electromagnetic energy at the molecular
 level, as the ozone molecule disassociates into oxygen,
 undoubtedly plays a role in its usefulness in therapy. 
 Permit me to list just a few of the proven effects of
 ozone.

 OZONE ACTIONS

 1.  Ozone activates the enzymes involved in peroxide or  
     oxygen "free radical" destruction i.e. glutathione, 
     catalase, s.o.d.

 2.  Accelerates glycolysis (breakdown of glycogen) in RGSs, 
     thus it:

     a.  Increases the release of 02 from the hemoglobin in
         the blood to the tissues.
     b.  Enhances formation of acetyl coenzyme-a, which is 
         vital in metabolic detoxification.
     c.  Influences the mitochondrial transport system which
         enhances the metabolism of all cells and safeguards
         against mutagenic changes.
     d.  Increases red blood cell pliability, blood fluidity
         and arterial P02 (oxygen content) and a decrease in
         rouleaux formation (clumping) which interferes with
         the normal functioning of red blood cell
         metabolism.

 3.  Increases leukocytosis (production of the white blood 
     cells) and phagocytosis (the manner in which certain 
     white blood cells destroy foreign matter).  Both 
     processes are part of the immune defense system.

 4.  Stimulates the reticulo-endothelial system, the 
     rebuilding of tissue.

 5.  Strong germicide - inactivates enteroviruses, coliform 
     bacteria, saphylococcus aureus and aeromona
     hydrophilia.

 6.  Disrupts the cell envelope of many pathogenic organisms
     which are composed of phospholipids, peptidoglycans and
     polysaccharides.

 7.  Opens the circular plasmid DNA which lessens bacterial 
     proliferation.

 8.  Fungicidal, inhibits candida cell growth.

 9.  Low doses stimulate the immune system.

 10. High doses inhibit the immune system.

 11. Limit dose to 3,000 ug.

 References:  The information for this article is culled
 from the hundreds of papers presented at the World
 Conferences on Ozone.  The scarcity of information
 available in the major medical journals is testimony to the
 power of the Pharmaceutical industry.  With good reason,
 they have established a wall of silence and welcome the
 dissemination of falsehoods about the effects of ozone. 
 They have an entire market of antibiotics that are at odds
 with ozone therapy.  My conversations with practitioners in
 several countries, including the United States, confirms
 the remarkable results that I observed first-hand in my own
 practice.
