TI: The Efficacy of Ozone Therapy as an Antibiotic DT: September 1993 AU: Hans Georg Eberhardt, Specialist in Family Medicine AB: The medical properties of ozone therapy as a monotherapy are identical to those of an antibiotic. However, ozone differs from the later in three essential respects: 1. Even in higher doses, ozone has no negative effects on the inner working of the human body. 2. There is no pathogen resistance. 3. The ozone operates on a pathogen-independent basis, and that's why it is antibiotically totipotent. Clinical observations in conjunction with animal testing have confirmed the hypothesis that it is antibiotics in particular that induce the chronification process during the inflammatory phase. For this reason, an instrument is urgently required which will reliably perform the therapeutic action of antibiotics without having to suffer the disadvantages. Ozone therapy means that one such reliable alternative is now available. Also previously unappreciated is the fact that ozone treatment works in a pathogen-independent fashion since its effect is apparently indirect - i.e. it seems to function almost in a subsidiary way by successfully mobilising the body's own totipotent defenses. For many years now, the universally anti- inflammatory potential of ozone has been closely followed in my practice. Proven both by clinical method and objective diagnostics, this potential will be demonstrated "ad oculos" using several examples.
