Oxidation   Dr. William Turska, 1951
Health is dependent almost entirely upon a pure, healthy blood and general humoral circulation. Every organ, nerve, tissue and cell depends on vital blood and humoral fluid for nourishment and elimination of wastes. When these vital fluids are impaired, the system begins a general degeneration and alteration from the norm. The object of respiration is to bring atmospheric oxygen in close relationship with the hemoglobin of the blood and permit the interchange of oxygen with carbon dioxide, thus eliminating this end product of oxidation along with other products in minute quantities. In the process of respiration, waste products are exposed to the action of oxygen and they are combusted, producing body heat. In the living organism, heat is continually being generated through the chemical action of oxygen upon carbon. When the blood receives sufficient oxygen to unite with the carbon, carbon dioxide is formed, which is in a suitable state to be eliminated. The process of oxidation is complete, the body temperature is maintained at normal, the organs perform their functions properly and the system is in a condition to resist the influence of microbes.

When, however, an insufficient amount of oxygen is received by the blood, carbon is incompletely burned, and carbon monoxide is produced. Through its poisonous influence, the system becomes debilitated, or 'run down.' Carbon monoxide is an irritant to the nervous system, it attaches to the hemoglobin in red blood cells, and it interferes with organ functions. The body temperature is reduced below normal which renders the system incapable of resisting the influence of various bacteria, viruses and yeast. Disease is the result. Subnormal temperatures indicate under-oxidation, or hypoxia. The under oxidized person will present a host of symptoms: headache, backache, insomnia, vertigo, constipation, asthenia, anemia, and non-specific gastro-intestinal upsets. Under-oxidation renders the system susceptible to a multiplicity of disorders, which will worsen and become chronic over time. Scientists long ago recognized the great oxidizing and antiseptic properties of ozone, but owing to its irritating effects and toxic properties when used in raw form, it was abandoned from the therapeutic calendar except in a few instances. The therapeutic abilities of ozone were in evidence, but the manner of application would not allow reliable results. With modern equipment and protocols, ozone is now able to be used to great therapeutic effect. It has been found that ozone potentiates hormones, botanicals, vitamins and many drugs by an amount ranging from 10 - 100%. In addition, it has been demonstrated that ozone treatment of milk completely eliminates any harmful bacteria without having to resort to pasteurization, which destroys beneficial enzymes.

Like oxygen, ozone is a healthful gas. It has, however, much greater oxidizing, antiseptic and germicidal power and for this reason is being used with great success for the relief of various diseases. Recently, the FDA and EPA have been telling the public that ozone is poisonous, and detrimental to the body. This is not so! For years physicians around the world have used ozone for bringing palliative and curative results to many, many individuals. Ozone is one of the most energetic and useful agents known to science. Its therapeutic action is due to oxygenation of the blood by the loose molecule (free radical) of oxygen in the O3 compound. It is carried to the various organs and tissues of the body and absorbed, thus oxidizing the waste products, and facilitating their elimination. In other words, ozone increases the metabolism without the expenditure of vital energy and special stress should be laid on the fact that ozone is a NATURAL remedy.

In the process of respiration waste products are exposed to the action of the oxygen of the air, and they are burned up very much as if they were put into a stove, thereby producing body heat. In the living body, heat, whether tangible or not, is continually being generated through the chemical action of carbon and oxygen.

When the blood receives sufficient oxygen to unite with the carbon, carbon dioxide (CO2) is formed, which is in a suitable state to be eliminated. The process of oxidation is complete, the body temperature maintained at normal (98.6 oF), the organs perform their functions properly and the system is in a condition to resist the toxic influences of microbes, environment and mankind's excesses.

When, however, an insufficient amount of oxygen is received by the blood, carbon monoxide (CO) is formed, which is NOT readily eliminated, and through its poisonous influences, trouble begins. Carbon monoxide is a DE-oxidizer. It acts as an irritant to the organs, the body temperature is reduced below normal and the system is rendered incapable of resisting the toxic influences of various bacteria, viruses and environmental toxins, and disease is the result. So prevalent is subnormal temperature among people who are called 'run down.' that nine out of ten of them will show a subnormal temperature by actual thermometer test.

There have been several reasons given for subnormal temperatures in recent years: they range from 'thyroid insufficiency' to 'hypothalamus disorders.' These explanations are correct, but only to a degree. The CAUSE of the problem is low and inadequate oxidation. Therefore the thyroid, hypothalamus, or endocrine organs (given as the cause) are hindered in their normal metabolic function and the sub-normal temperature is the result. The correct way to counteract this situation is to give a substance that will restore the oxidative process.

The clinical thermometer is the best means of determining the existence of under oxidation and should be used routinely. The temperature of one who is under oxidized will be found to run from a fraction to several degrees below normal.

The under oxidized and subnormal temperature person will present one of more of the following symptoms: headache, dizziness, insomnia, constipation, faint-feeling, loss of appetite, palpitation of the heart, liver and kidney problems, menstrual problems, cold hands and feet, anemia, gastrointestinal problems, chlorosis, etc., all of which are due to an impoverished blood supply.

The symptoms or conditions that rise from a subnormal temperature are not necessarily in proportion to the degree of subnormal temperature. A person showing a fractional part of one degree of subnormal temperature may present as severe problems or conditions of disease as one who is several degrees below normal.

A sufficiency of oxygen for the blood means better blood, better circulation, better assimilation, better equilibrium of body temperature, better vasomotor activity, better digestion, better elimination of waste products, less chance of autointoxication or toxemia, and less chance of infection and disease.

After careful analytical investigation of disease, it has been demonstrated:

1. That one of the most common important conditions that the person is called upon to correct is weakness produced by an impoverished or diminished blood supply.

2. That under-oxidation produces bad health primarily because of an insufficient supply of oxygen that makes certain the formation of carbon monoxide, which is at once a de-oxidizer, a hemoglobin destroyer and an irritant poison devitalizing the blood and paving the way for a multiplicity of acute troubles, many of which run into chronicity.

It has been suggested that a subnormal temperature may be a normal condition with some people. This deduction can be disproved by placing anyone with a subnormal temperature under active influence of ozone and the temperature can be made to rise back to normal.

Almost all forms of nervous, functional, respiratory and blood disorders can be successfully corrected by oxidation restoration. The effects are perfectly natural, the nerves being left calm and toned with a feeling of buoyancy and exhilaration. It stimulates the vasomotor system through the nerve centers, which fact is clearly shown in the increased redness of the skin, a feeling of warmth in the whole body, and waste products being more freely eliminated. The ozone treatment show that poor oxidation is the cause of many disorders, by reason of the fact that when the temperature is brought up to normal, the problems disappear.

The Importance of Oxygen - Dr. Robert E. Willner MD PhD.

Virtually every patient's room in a modern hospital is equipped for the administration of oxygen. Every emergency room is required by law to have the same equipment. Deep breathing exercises are prescribed for patients with lung problems and for persons recovering from surgery. The narrow applications of these techniques is very unfortunate. They should be routine for every person. The average person takes their respiration for granted. There are large Eastern religions who incorporate consciousness of breathing as an important teaching in their religious instruction. Indians refer to 'prana" as a wonderful substance that God has provided for a healthy life. It seems certain that prana is ozone.

Deep breathing exercises carry greater importance today than ever before, because of the lowered amount of oxygen in the air in our cities. The effect of gradual oxygen deprivation on metabolism is devastating and leads to a greater production, and an inadequate processing, of the toxic wastes that our bodies produce daily. One of the consequences of a lowered oxygen supply is the elevation of uric acid in the body. This causes a wide variety of metabolic problems.

The most common disease associated with a uric acid disorder is gout and it is primarily due to an inability to fully process meat protein. However, almost every system of the body is detrimentally affected. The formation of kidney stones and gall bladder stones, the blocking of circulation, and the destruction of joints by the formation of crystalline deposits are just a few fo the serious problems that arise.

There are hundreds of known biochemical reactions in the body the utilize oxygen. Acute deprivation of oxygen (hypoxia) leads to a rapid death; we are simply getting there more slowly. The impairment of oxidative processes is directly related to the development and progress of cancer.

The use of ozone in the treatment of cancer addresses the problem of cellular hypoxia, or oxygen starvation, and has wide systemic effects. The efficacy of this treatment has been proven over the last fifty years in Germany.

In order to appreciate ozone one must first understand fully the critical role oxygen plays in human life. Oxygen is by far the most important necessity of human life. It performs hundreds of tasks in the body, but the two most important are energy production and detoxification.

The production of energy in the body is accomplished by the combination of glucose with oxygen, producing ATP. The body makes an amount of ATP equivalent to your body weight every 24 hours. If you make 10% less ATP than normal, you will feel tired and sluggish. If ATP production falls too far, you will deteriorate rapidly, and die. Energy is life and the production of energy in the body depends upon oxygen.

The second important function of oxygen is to combine with metabolic waste products to allow their elimination from the body. This process is called the oxidation reduction cycle. When insufficient oxygen is available, the detoxification process slows down, wastes pile up, circulation becomes sluggish, oxygen is prevented from reaching the cells and disease results. Thus, we can see that oxygen is essential to these two vital phases of life.

Since oxygen is the most critical requirement for life, the ingestion of substances the increase the level of oxygen in the body are the most beneficial to optimum health. The best sources of oxygen are ozone, hydrogen peroxide and magnesium peroxide.

Another take:

Under oxygenation is one of the main underlying causes of poor health. Oxygen/Ozone therapy seeks to redress this imbalance. Oxygen starvation is caused by poor breathing, de-oxygenated and refined foods, smoking, lack of exercise, environmental pollution and carbon monoxide poisoning (especially for those living in cities i.e. most of us) and the natural reduction in ambient oxygen that has been taking place since the Cretaceous era as confirmed by Science News November 7th 1987. Other treatments both conventional and alternative do work - as long as the blood stream is properly oxygenated.

We believe lack of sufficient cellular oxygen is a major cause of poor health i.e. low immunity, constant tiredness, regular colds and flu's, low vitality and M.E. These problems all respond well to oxygen/ozone therapy. People with asthma and bronchitis also respond particularly well, though ozone is never actually inhaled it is applied by various methods which bypass the lungs. Headache and migraine sufferers also report benefits (are these conditions caused by lack of oxygen to the brain?) What we do know is that when the body is flooded with an activated form of oxygen, namely ozone, people consistently report that their health dramatically improves.
