OXYGEN WITH ED MCCABE 7/16/92 "Mr. Oxygen" is Ed McCabe, internationally acclaimed speaker,investigative journalist, expert, and author of the bestselling book "Oxygen Therapies." Nothing herein is medical advice, but merely an international public discussion of the oxygen therapy centered events, products, and methods being used worldwide. Copyright 1992 by Ed McCabe. Q. 1. "What makes stabilized oxygen work?" A. The so called "stabilized oxygen" products are actually salts of oxygen diluted in water. These safe as directed, yet potent oxidizers, sometimes contain various proprietary additives to enhance their effectiveness. They are essentially a formulation mixing a solution of mildly buffered sodium chlorite with deionized water. These products are weakly buffered to an alkaline Ph of around 12%, but unlike highly buffered drain cleaners or other strong alkaline solutions, they immediately loose their alkalinity upon contact with any substance that is of a lower Ph. Bacteria, viruses, the acid mantle of human skin, and the hydrochloric acid in our stomachs all react to immediately render their alkalinity harmless to humans. They are generally colorless and odorless, but a drop rubbed between the fingertips will drop the Ph and release the characteristic chlorine dioxide odor. Many people mistake this odor for the smell of bleach, but it isn't. If the wrong analytical tests are performed on these solutions, they will give a false positive for the presence of household bleach. Oxidative chemistry is an exacting science, and only specialists in the field are knowledgeable enough to select the correct test procedures to analyze these substances, NaClO2 & NaClO3. Sold in concentrate form and always diluted before use, they are called "Stabilized Oxygen" by most people, but this is technically a misnomer, since this implies somehow oxygen has been turned liquid and bottled up, which it isn't. These formulations work by releasing some molecular oxygen, chlorite ions, and trace amounts of sodium and chlorine dioxide into the blood plasma. All this happens when the ingested diluted stabilized oxygen hits the stomach acid, becomes highly unstable, and breaks down immediately. Once the ClO species are in the body, they create natural enzyme/chlorite combinations that supply the immune and energy production enzymes with some basic chemicals they need to function. Modern living has robbed us of an adequate supply of these chemicals. The newest version of these compounds is "double buffered." Most are buffered only to survive the acid environment of the stomach. The new one is double buffered with a proprietary formulation to also release oxygen into the alkaline environment of the small and large intestine. Each of the buffering systems allows the incorporation of significant amounts of oxygen bearing electrolytes, therefore the manufacturer states that they "can almost double the amount of oxygen bearing electrolytes they can put into the system and be assured it will reach the colon and produce it in the alkaline environment. Apart from all the science, I have interviewed hundreds of people who, due to their use of these products, have reported increased functions and energy, and disease remissions that even included interior cancers being reabsorbed into the body, and external cancers falling off when internal and external application was applied for a long enough period of time in a high enough dosage." Athletes and even animals are showing wonderful results. Watch for my new book on this subject. Q. 2. "How do you feel about oxygen bathing?" A. GREAT! It is one of the safest and best ways to get more oxygen into the body. Your skin is the largest organ of absorption and excretion you have. Anything you soak it in will be taken up and circulated through the system, so many put their bod in either diluted hydrogen peroxide, or in ozone gas circulating in a bag. A friend of mine uses his spa to hold water and peroxide at a level of around 100 parts per million peroxide, and bubbles ozone through it besides. He buys a "car boy" container of food grade 35% peroxide (Dupont's "Perone" for example) from the local chemical distributor and adds it as needed. For good measure he also bubbles ozone through the water. Some people just ozonate their baths, while medically, I know some AIDS patients getting good results by taking 3 rectal insufflations per day and in between that, getting into an ozone "bag" twice a day. They take a hot shower to "open the pores" (actually dilate the capillaries) and still wet, get their body into an airtight bag that closes around the neck and covers them completely, except for the head, since you can't breathe concentrated ozone. The bag is continuously filled with high concentration medical ozone, and they soak in the ozone bag for 1/2 hour. Doctors are putting up to one gallon of 35% peroxide into a bathtub full of water for AIDS patients to soak in twice a day. I believe the external bodily application of oxygen products, perhaps combined with water and frequency machines, is a whole untapped vista of possibility. Q. 3. "We heard you testified before the NIH (National Institute of Health) Office of Unconventional Medicine. What happened?" A.: Lots of excitement from people who never heard of this. They all want data. Plenty of data exists, but Doctors are too afraid of the FDA to testify. A sad state of affairs. Here's what I said to the panel members: Presented 6/18/92 @ NIH Bethesda, Maryland MEDICAL OZONE THERAPIES: 50 YEARS OF OVERLOOKING A PROVEN ANSWER FOR DISEASES LIKE CANCER AND NOW AIDS TESTIMONY: Oxygen Therapies have been in use medically for over 100 years. The basis of the therapies is quite simple: Ultimately toxicity collects within the body over time. This buildup of toxicity can have physical, emotional, and behavioral co-factors which must also be addressed. The buildup of toxicity within the body invites the proliferation of anaerobic disease causing microorganisms. Oxygen therapies are used to flood the body with active forms of oxygen. When the body becomes safely saturated with these special forms of oxygen, it reaches a state of purity wherein the disease microorganisms are killed, and the underlying toxicity is oxidized and eliminated. The patient's immune system must then be rebuilt with vitamin, mineral, and if needed, behavioral modification and other therapies. In this way diseases like AIDS, cancer and multiple sclerosis are being eliminated or at least controlled. Ozone therapy is one of the oxygen therapies. Over 5,000 medical ozone generators have been sold in Europe and are presently in use by as many doctors worldwide. Specific concentrations and volumes of ozone gas made from pure oxygen are readily applied to the body through intravenous infusions without any harm, usually during a minimum standard treatment schedule of 42 days in a row. The ozone breaks down into various oxygen subspecies which contact anaerobic viruses, microbes, or diseased cells and oxidize them while leaving the normal healthy cells alone. The standard 42 day minimum treatment requirement is being challenged by recent developments, notably in the field of ozone equipment and other protocol refinements. Ozone therapy was used medically by Nikola Tesla in 1900. It has been in continual use for over 50 years in the U.S., but due to our legal pressures, ozone is presently only widely used in Europe. When the proper protocols are followed, ozone has been proven highly effective in the treatment - and possibly the elimination - of over 40 common diseases. There are about 300 doctors in the U.S. daily using some form of oxygen therapies today. Ozone therapies are among the safest therapies ever used. One European study of over 5.5 million treatments showed a side effect rate of .0007%, probably among the lowest of any therapy known. Side effects like fever and weakness are minor and temporary. M.D.'s characterize ozone as "blatantly non-toxic." I have kept in continual contact with 6 U.S. MD's who, independent of each other, have collectively reported bringing over 300 AIDS patients to HIV negative status, including complete eradication of any secondary disease factors such as energy loss, weight loss, diarrhea, etc. I have also interviewed many AIDS patients who have been getting ozone therapy on their own, and all those who followed good protocols reported an immediate increase in energy, weight gain, and T cell stabilization or increase in a few weeks. The most notable of the ozone physicians to date is Dr. James Boyce, who brought 237 AIDS patients to health, each within 30 days. His results were verified by major independent lab testing before and after. Like most doctors in our country who have bravely tried to help their patients with ozone therapy, Dr. Boyce has subsequently been attacked by several government agencies trying to put him out of business. Therefore, he cannot appear here today due to the advice of his attorneys. However, he has expressed a desire to work with the committee in the future. While our country reels from the impact of AIDS, this physician, who has the best documented track record in the country of treating and perhaps even eliminating AIDS, now spends his days farming instead of practicing the medicine he was so proficient at. Another typical modern case is that of Dr. John Pittman from Raleigh, North Carolina. He started using ozone in 1991 with excellent results, but had his research project cut short when local physicians who never heard of ozone - and didn't bother to find out anything about it - turned him into the state medical board which asked him to stop using ozone, since it is not FDA approved. Dr. Pittman is also hopeful of continuing his research. The Medizone company of New York, which holds a patent on blood ozonation, has continually been on file with the FDA asking for permission to begin ozone trials on AIDS patients since 1986. For six years in a row, the FDA has told them to "go back and do even more flawless ozone animal studies." This is in spite of the fact that ozone therapy has been used safely on humans for over 50 years. Safety of application or effectiveness is not questionable among the physicians who have personally used ozone daily for 30 years on humans. Medizone and others are ready to begin strictly designed and monitored human trials. And, like many U.S. physicians I have interviewed, would have commenced clinical trials six years ago - if not for the FDA preventing it. The biggest problem is that in 1976 the FDA declared ozone a "toxic gas with no medical uses" via publication in the Federal Register. I have written that: "Printing this statement in a publication paid for with our taxes is either a blatant attempt at suppression of truth from the highest levels, or one of the poorest research jobs ever done. It obviously favors competitive drug therapies, and ignores well over 50 years of safe and effective medical use on hundreds of thousands of humans - backed up with medical references and clinical studies in Switzerland, Italy, France, Germany, Australia, New Zealand, Mexico, and the U.S." Although legally, ozone is believed by some to be "grandfathered" since its use in U.S. medicine predates the existence of the FDA itself, no one has tested this position in court. So the FDA - and the state medical agencies and boards that take their lead from the FDA - are actively persecuting any physician using ozone. Under these prevailing "siege" type conditions I could get none of the U.S. doctors who have achieved great successes with ozone therapy to come here today. When asked to appear, the doctors all reacted in fear of the government, fear of the loss of their licenses, and fear of being raided and cleaned out by SWAT teams in the same way that Dr. Jonathan Wright was treated most recently. Upon inquiry, I commonly heard: "I'm not ready to appear." "Don't mention my name!" "The doctor already fled the country." "I'm scared to death they'll take away my license." On the bright side, if immunity from state, and federal, and agency, and medical board prosecution could be assured, these humanitarian doctors would gladly make available their knowledge for the public good. I stand ready to do the same, and submit to you the attached chronological history of U.S. medical ozone therapy to date. Conclusion due to the many interviews I have conducted: It is my opinion that the AIDS problem has been solved. If we can get ozone doctors both immunity from prosecution and funding for clinical trials, within 90 days the only thing left to do would be to implement the existing solution. 4. Q. What is new on the ozone AIDS scene?. A. Too many AIDS patients think just getting a few ozone shots solves the problem. The doctors actually getting complete and lasting results (HIV negative, etc.), not just stabilization, have all used combination therapies with minerals, good food, vitamins, counseling, etc. I am in constant communication with many doctors who are secretly doing clinical studies to get together even more data for the skeptics. Ozone is on the move, and now is the time. Get involved! 5. Q. "Where are you speaking lately?" A. Well, I just spoke at the NIH as you know, and I also addressed The Foundation For The Advancement Of Medicine - Dr. Robert Atkins' group in NY (The new video of this is available from The Family News). On August 29th & 30th, I'll be at the NHF in Chicago. Sept 5th and 6th, the Cancer Control Society in Pasadena, and Sept 12th & 13th, the Whole Life Expo in Los Angeles. October 10th is the Wellness Expo in Philadelphia. November starts me in New Zealand, and then to The Body Mind and Spirit Festival and other venues including radio & TV in Australia. January looks like England. In short, where there is a need, I respond as best I can.

At the urging of many in our oxygen family, The Not For Profit "Foundation For The Advancement of Oxygen Therapies" has finally been formed. Our stated purpose: We are bringing our case to the public by educating them that oxygen supplements, therapies and related activities are historically inexpensive, safe, and proven effective when used as directed by competently trained healthcare professionals. We are using education, the media, and soon, with your help, aggressive research as proof to silence whomever postures against oxygen, your very right to life itself. While America dies of AIDS, Tuberculosis and a host of other diseases, and the FDA stands before Congress and declares as truth that "there is no evidence that ozone has any medical benefit," and Congressmen say we should "imprison anyone who promotes or uses ozone for 25 years as a felon," and doctors curing diseases are railroaded into prison, and homes are broken into by government agents seizing ozone machines, things have gone way too far. They are referring to us. You and me and our friends. Won't you please become a contributing member by joining the foundation today? Donations will be in a segregated account and only used for our stated agenda. Please send your donation, no matter how small or large - all will be appreciated - to us at the following addresses. 1.
