[Editor's Note: Update. June 29, 2003. I had originally posted this article
as being authored by a man named Den R., but he contacted me and denied being
the author of the article. For the time being, I'll leave it as Author Unknown,
but will soon update with a lenghtier article by recognized authorities on
Ozone is 3 atoms of oxygen bound together instead
of the normal 2. It is created artificially as the result of ultraviolet light
acting on oxygen to break up and recombine as threesomes. Ozone destroys algae,
viruses, bacteria, and fungi on contact and it breaks down harmful chemicals
into simpler less damaging molecules. Ozone kills microorganisms by rupturing
their cell walls. Healthy cells are not damaged because of their self protective
mechanisms. Ozone has a half life of 20 minutes and thus should be used within
the first 5-10 minutes to assure its strength. It can cause an initial drop
in energy and feeling 'sickly' due to the die-off of pathogens it killed.
It is especially damaging to cancerous cells. Ozone in water as dilute as
1ug/ml is anti-microbial. It increases the phagocytic (pathogen eating) action
of white blood cells. With the use of it (usually injected) doctors in the
U.S. and Europe have reported 100's of cases of HIV blood count reversal,
loss of AIDS symptoms (Carpendale et al. 1991), tumor shrinkage and dissappearance
and cure of systemic infections such as Hepatitis, staphylococcal infection,
and meningitis (Paulesu et al. 1991, Rilling et al. 1986). While using ozone
therapy one should supplement with vit E, N-Acetyl-Cysteine, and Selenium
in order to support the glutathione detoxification system. Ozone activates
both monocytes and lymphocytes. It increases the oxygen supply to the brain.
It improves oxygenation and metabolism (by accelerating the Citric Acid Cycle
which is the main cycle for the liberation of energy from sugars). In Russia
and Cuba, ozonated water is used to treat many types of intestinal & gynecological
problems including ulcerative colitis, duodenal ulcers, gastritis, diarrhea,
and vulvovaginitis. Ozone also changes the electrical charge of blood cell
membranes so that they won't clump together (which decreases their ability
to absorb oxygen and release it to tissues).
Because it increases oxygenation + metabolism
and breaks down harmful chemicals and debri (such as dead microbes) this is
being recommended by Bob Beck to offset the uncomfortable feelings one can
get from the increased 'toxicity' that happens from killing microbes using
I just started using ozonated water (10-3-97)
to see what it's like. The first impression gotten is that it makes the water
taste awful just like hydrogen peroxide makes it taste. Second impression
is that it is somewhat harsh on the stomach because it is such a strong oxidizer.
(always drink it on an empty stomach so it can pass into the intestines quicker
and then into the bloodstream). Of course, I'm just geussing how long to ozonate
the water because the only recommendations are for just treating water to
make it healthier to drink which is 5-10 minutes per gallon. I've started
at 15 minutes with 2 cups water and have been drinking 1 cup every morning.
That's probably too much treatment time but I wanted to see if I'd throw up
or get sickly from too much effect. I'd rather experience what's 'too much'
instead of my customers. The first two days was easy going with no bad side
effects but then on the third I started feeling more tired like I normally
do when cleansing or killing candida (which I think it was doing). I think
that if someone didn't have an intestinal infection that they might only feel
more energy from taking it. (I had also taken 2 baths with 1 gallon of water
put in that had just been ozonated for 30 minutes.)
