Subject:  OZONE - for Arthritis

Ozone has several uses:

1. As an extremely active oxidizing agent.
2. As an effective disinfectant and germicide.
3. Clinically, it has been found effective in dissolving and
   breaking up various abnormal deposits, such as that of
   Arthritis, Nephrolithiasis, or Cholelithiasis.

In chronic arthritis the lowered carbon dioxide tension
results in an anoxia (oxygen deficiency) brought about by a
lack of stimulation for oxygen-carbon dioxide exchange.  Lack
of oxygen results in a degenerative process that leads to
hylinization and later, calcification.

Clinical evidence has shown results in the use of Ozone in
both acute and chronic inflammatory conditions.  It has been
known to break up certain calcifications in arthritis. It
sounds reasonable to assume that in the demand for oxygen in
an acute process, if oxygen was administered in some rapid
form, as Ozone, the augment of an already laboring normal
oxygen supply would be of benefit.

In the case of a chronic condition as arthritis (the normal
tissue accepting only what oxygen it needs), if additional
oxygen would be introduced into the abnormal, oxygen depleted
tissue, the process would be reversible and result in a
removal of the abnormal deposits and a return to normal or
near normal.
