OXYGEN THERAPY UPDATE By Waves Forest In the six years since "Hyper-Oxygenation" was first printed and turned loose, considerable progress has been made with bio- oxidative therapies. The main barrier to their broad adoption is still the health industry's financial commitment to conventional treatments which are far more profitable though less effective. Oxygen therapies are catching on in many areas now. A broad assortment of treatments involving ozone, H202 and other active oxygen supplements has gained practitioners among virtually all medical specialties. Yet the majority tend to maintain low profiles to avoid running afoul of certain health officials who get jumpy whenever abnormally high cure rates are reported. So for now any lists of physicians offering oxygen therapies will be limited to those willing to take on whatever risks go with being on such lists. Nevertheless growing numbers of health care providers are utilizing these unapproved but most effective methodologies. But as far as the mass media is concerned, oxygen therapies do not exist and there's still no cure for cancer, AIDS, Alzheimer's, etc. Thus people whose news sources are limited to the mass media, and who aren't lucky enough to hear about ozone and H202 through some other channel, are out there still suffering and dying needlessly. What's spent on a year's advertisements for cold remedies alone would eliminate colds altogether, along with quite a few other disorders, if invested in oxygen therapies. Until a complete update on these matters can be assembled, here are some usage notes on oxygen water (H202 or hydrogen peroxide) that weren't in the first report. For oral use of H202, we've found the "swish and swallow" method using 2% strength to be much easier on the stomach than the original method of counting drops of 35% (Food Grade) H202 into a glass of water, then drinking that directly. By taking about a third of a mouthful of 2% H202 and swishing it around for a couple minutes before swallowing it, the harsh taste of raw H202 is neutralized and there is no unpleasant stomach reaction. This can be done a few times a day. (2% is roughly one part 35% H202 to 17 parts water.) As with the original drop-counting method, one should increase dosages gradually over a number of days, to minimize any uncomfortable cleansing reactions which can result from overburdening the elimination system. An additional pathway for absorbing H202, that we found after the first two reports appeared, is vaporizing and breathing it. We use from 1% to 3% strength and find it quite effective. A pot on a stove will work, or a vaporizer sturdy enough to handle the slightly higher boiling point. Since absorption is easier with cooler temperatures and smaller mist particle sizes, the ideal system would be a true fog generator, like the ones Mee Industries sells for tropical greenhouses and such. It'd cost a bit, but not compared with most medical equipment, and imagine what you could do for folks with respiratory ailments. Just don't wait for FDA approval; according to their press release on H202, those of use who've been drinking it for years should all be in big trouble by now, instead of enjoying wide-spectrum immunity. On the AIDS front, an organization of physicians and patients has formed up for the purpose of publicizing oxidative therapies and removing legal barriers to their wider implementation. Headed by Dr. John C. Pittman, CURE AIDS NOW (CAN) is at PO Box 4184, Salisbury, NC 28144-0102; 919-571-8968. The allied organization IBOM (International Bio-Oxidative Medicine Foundation), headed by Dr. Charles Farr, is at PO Box 13205, Oklahoma City, OK 73113-1205; 405-478-4266. IBOM can provide referrals to physicians trained in delivering H202 IV's and other oxidative therapies. This interim report is from NOW WHAT, PO Box 768, Monterey, CA 93942.
