TI European AIDS Research Ignored DT 871026 AU Fr. Richard Wilhelm B.Sc. SO Spotlight Newspaper TX Dr. Horst Keif is curing AIDS victims in the Munich area of West Germany, by hyperoxygenating their blood with ozone, which destroys the AIDS virus on contact. The same basic process appears to be also effective against hepatitis, Herpes, the Epstein-Barr virus and the Cytomegalovirus, as well as providing a simple method of purifying stored blood and blood components, and preoxygenating blood to be transfused. Some of the medical uses of ozone have been appreciated for years in Europe and elsewhere but are still relatively unknown in the United States. The treatment itself is remarkably simple: The ozone is produced by forcing oxygen through a metal tube carrying a 300-volt charge. A pint of blood is drawn from the patient and placed in an infusion bottle. The ozone is then forced into the bottle and thoroughly mixed by shaking gently, whereupon the blood turns bright red. As the ozone molecules dissolve into the blood they give up their third oxygen atom, releasing considerable energy, which inactivates all lipid-envelope virus while leaving blood cells unharmed. Ozone overcomes AIDS virus by a fundamentally different process than usually attempted with drugs. Instead of burdening the liver and immune system with more elaborate toxic substances, ozone simply oxidizes the molecules in the shell of the virus, rendering it incapable of spreading. It also oxygenates the blood to a greater degree than is usually reached, what with poor air and sluggish breathing habits. The treated blood is then given back to the patient. This treatment is given from twice a week to twice a day, depending on how advanced the disease is. The strengthened blood confers some of its virucidal properties to the rest of the patient's blood as it disperses. The disease will not return, as long as the patient maintains his blood in an oxygen-positive state, through proper breathing, exercise and diet. The major U.S. news media and the medical establishment seem to be ignoring this line of research. Meanwhile hundreds of millions of dollars are being spent to "try to find a cure," which supposedly won't be available for years, if ever.
