and NO EFFORT REQUIRED on your part 
             ~ essential repair for BASIC HEALTH and HEALING

These hyperthermic steam sauna ozone and oxygen detoxifying sessions are EXTREMELY supportive of your health and NOT invasive. Healing Ozone and Oxygen Therapy does more good for more conditions than any other single therapy. 

Ozone therapy has not fixed everything… but almost!
It’s not a miracle cure – but requires our respect and awe!
And FOR some people ozone therapy takes A BIT more time for effectiveness than for others. Some clients with colds, flus, torn ligaments, depression, bronchial challenges, lung diseases, skin issues, intestinal inflammation, detoxing from chemo therapy and accumulated heavy metals, reduced proper blood circulation, Lyme disease and co-infections and so many more challenging conditions experience immediate benefits.

Ozone therapy is often an adjunctive therapy and should be performed along with and healing therapy where possible.

The ozone sauna sessions that we offer at Pacific Holistic in Vancouver, BC, are VERY effective, relaxing and safe. This allows you to take in the benefits of the full body-transdermal effects of both the steam heat opening pores for detoxification and the entry of ozone and oxygen – simultaneously – in a non-invasive and relaxing manner. (AND no unnatural penetrating infrared rays!)
At the same time several hundred calories are used up in each session.

Are you a plumber, blacksmith or dentist, dental technician, tool and dye shop worker or have you been suspended to minute sized metal particles in poorly ventilated air – in the work space? Do you work in an environment with compromised air – car repair shops, welding, mining and construction work?

Have you ever wondered why steam saunas have been used for thousands of years and ozone steam sauna therapy in the past six decades by virtually ALL state-of-the-art alternative European clinics? And have you noticed that ozone / oxygen therapies are embraced in many countries where the pharmaceutical medical system has not made such deep inroads and where every dollar counts, such as Russia and Cuba?

They last about 30 to 40 minutes. You sit comfortably on white towels in a clean steam sauna which is detoxifying in itself. During these sessions your pores open from the steam heat and your capillaries are a tad closer to your skin’s surface to help cool you – much like on a screaming hot day in the dessert.
Ozone and oxygen, which surrounds you in the steam cabinet, enters your body transdermally through your open pores. Medical grade oxygen is used to create a constant continuous high concentration of ozone that bathes your entire body, while a towel around the sauna neck-opening stops you from breathing any of it. (NEVER breathe in full-on ozone.)
The O2 and O3 enters into your the epidermis and corium skin, into the extra-cellular matrix, blood capillaries, arteries and veins as well as lymph vessels and nodes and fat tissues – swiftly and easily. This is pro-oxidative by its very nature.

The sweating process (our skin is the largest organ of elimination) assists in expelling toxins and gives the normal toxin pathways to the liver, intestines and lungs a bit of a break. Sweat contains more toxins than urine! That’s why skin is sometimes called the 3rd kidney. 

Because of the powerful results achieved with ozone saunas, they can be used as an alternative for intravenous treatments.


When we are seriously ill; when our pH is seriously out of kilter; when we are receiving harsh chemical therapies; when we are over-the-top stressed; or when we are recouping from the side-effects of anti-biotics, etc., the transport of oxygen (to all of our cells) becomes less efficient and sometimes compromised. Then the massive amount of normal complex reactions, onging at all times to keep us functioning, are also affected, compromised or diminished.

Knowing the exact biochemical and physiological mechanisms behind this therapy is important. Much is known and yet more research is required. This could shed more light on the complete mechanisms of how oxygen itself is metabolized at the cellular level when all is well and working perfectly (something we also do not know definitively).
Ozone has been used for one full century to promote health, detoxification and healing – mainly in Europe.

Oxygen and ozone have always been part of some very useful and effectve therapies – please see the amazing compilations and reserach below by Ed McCabe, Dr. Frank Shallenberger and many other North American pioneers – researchers, doctors and authors of many articles, books, videos and practitioner courses.


Ozone therapy is the safest, inexpensive and most effective cancer therapy I have ever found to be available – in my opinion it should be an adjunct to ANY cancer therapy – from subtle to invasive – whether alternative or mainstream. It selectively destroys cancer cells without damaging healthy ones and helps remove / mop up expired cells and give strength to possibly challenged cells. Even orthodox health sources concur!

Here below is an abstract by F Sweet, MS Kao, SC Lee, WL Hagar, WE Sweet from way back in 1980 – in Science: 1980 Aug 22;209(4459): 931-3.

The growth of human cancer cells from lung, breast, and uterine tumors was selectively inhibited in a dose-dependent manner by ozone at 0.3 to 0.8 part per million of ozone in ambient air during 8 days of culture. Human lung diploid fibroblasts served as noncancerous control cells. The presence of ozone at 0.3 to 0.5 part per million inhibited cancer cell growth 40 and 60 percent, respectively. The noncancerous lung cells were unaffected at these levels. Exposure to ozone at 0.8 part per million inhibited cancer cell growth more than 90 percent and control cell growth less than 50 percent. Evidently, the mechanisms for defense against ozone damage are impaired in human cancer cells.

Another interesting aspect of ozone therapy when dealing with cancer cells is that the ozone / oxygen can overwhelm cancer cell multiplication through a variety of mechanisms.
Some of the anti-cancer effects of ozone include:

  • Oxidative destruction of xenoestrogens and other carcinogens.
  • Increasing levels of immune stimulating and cancer fighting cytokines.
  • Increasing levels of superoxide dismutase (SOD). SOD converts the superoxide anion in to oxygen, and anti-cancer and immune stimulating hydrogen peroxide – as required.
  • Increasing and strengthening of all kinds of white blood cells.
  • Decreasing lactate levels preventing its conversion back into glucose through gluconeogenesis and pH improvement.
  • Immediate and direct destruction of cancer cells through an overload of peroxide within the cancerous cells that it has no defense for.
  • increases surrounding tissue oxygenation
  • increases production of ATP, (the energy used by an organism in its daily operations) – more energy and faster recovery – seen specifically with acceleration of wound healing and recovery from overuse and stress
  • delays anaerobic fermentation at the cellular level (more potential malignant cells)
  • oxidizes lactic acid and prevents buildup, helps prevent sore muscles
  • reduces swelling, bruising and pain from injuries and speeds healing / prevents musculo-tendinous strain
  • helps increase hormone production to more balanced, optimum levels.

an Ode to Tesla – Ozone therapy !!!

effective natural healing - non-invasive ozone oxygen steam saunas at Pacific Holistic in Vancouver BC
the efficient, focussed use of O3 for healing

There are many folks who quote Otto Warburg in regards to his work with cancer cells – claiming that they need an anaerobic internal environment to grow and divide – requiring fermentation / sugar to survive as opposed to a healthy cell which needs oxygenation.
So let’s look at the myths… he ‘only’ received one Nobel prize – for the discovery of an enzyme which he called iron oxidase. Brilliant work! There was NO nobel prize for cancer cells being flooded with oxygen. He was brilliant, but never produced research showing that cancer cells cannot live in an oxygenated environment – pinnochio made that one up and many others ran with it…. If, after all, it were that easy, we’d just go scuba-diving or sit in a hyperbaric chamber to resolve cancer challenges (neither work for cancer).

Otto Warburg – oxygen / ozone and killing cancer cells

Cancer cells, like regular cells, actually need oxygen and sugars to survive.
However, the cancer cells’ response to ozone (including singlet oxygen) is a different matter. Healthy cells deal nicely with an influx of O’s. Cancer cells do not.

Medical grade O2 is zapped by a cold corona / cold plasma process (targetted electricity which breaks down O2 into singlet oxygen molecules) and then these recombine and become O3 and even all the way through to O25.
These are ‘GOOD’ pro-oxidative molecules, that are always circulating in our bodies at any given time but not in amounts as great as when receiving ozone therapies. These exaggerated amounts of O3 stimulate Natural Killer cells; stimulate the white granular macrophage cells and much more.
These new oxygenated molecules (O3 etc) also react with the lipid peroxide on many cell surfaces and cause the O, O3, O4 etc, to enter through cell walls after reacting with the lipid cell membranes and do a bit more cleanup!

These extra O’s permeate the cancer cell walls, too, as well as the neighbouring healthy cell walls – it’s an equal opportunity barrier! Cancer cells don’t have the enzymes within them to break down the extra peroxide intrusion. Instead the cancer cell swells; it bursts; it dies and some of the O’s re-emerge and re-permeate into the next nearest surrounding cells, some of which may be cancer cells – very efficient.

Peroxide, for example, is one common source of oxygen detoxing… and if used smartly and very, very causiously (often used in drinking water – one drop at a time) then this is a verrrry slow but tricky way to create gentle detoxification and healing (for example, some naturopaths have suggested one food grade drop in a glass of water, then two drops, then three, per day). Yet oral ingestion is not always the best route (via the stomach and intestines). In this method the re-oxygenation benefits may be overshadowed by the ability of the extra ozone and oxygen to elmiinate bacteria that may be your beneficial best friends (with tasks where they are co-factors such as in repairing gums, throat tissue, stomach lining, small intestinal tissue, etc)

Because of the powerful results achieved with ozone saunas, they can be used as an alternative for intravenous treatments.

Ozone injections into a tumor, for example, is a unique and tricky procedure and useful when one has a surface cancer. This is not an allowable practice in North America (and sadly not taught in North American medical or naturopathic schools!). In Europe one would seek out a very experienced physician who knows how to inject the tumour itself without hitting ANY blood vessels – a procedure requiring extreme skill. This is not an acceptable procedure in ANY North American mainstream cancer clinic.
Invasive therapies should be performed only by top-notch medical professionals.

EYE-OPENERS!… and what they just won’t teach in medical school
Here’s the Vancouver made 1994 award-winning documentary that got me hooked 28 years ago! It’s a classic called “Ozone and the Politics of Medicine” – (revised in 2004) by Geoffrey Rogers (the late Dr Roger Rogers’ son).

“… to examine the effect of ozone gas on the remaining bacteria after chemomechanical instrumentation of 37 tooth root canals… at the Department of Endodontics and Restorative dentistry, School of Dental Medicine, University of Zagreb… and a significant decrease in the number of bacteria (p < 0.001) was found after the ozone treatment: the total number of bacteria was 82%, 67% of aerobic and 93% of anaerobic bacteria. When analysing individually, a significant decrease was found for Streptococcus mitis and Propionibacterium acnes (p < 0.05). The results of this study shows the efficacy of ozone on the bacterial count reduction in the root canal treatment.”

He’s a long-time, brilliant oxygen / ozone researcher and doctor and is best known in the USA for treating many “auto-immune’ and chronic diseases as well as working with AIDS and cancer patients with protocols that include ozone and detoxification therapies. We owe him a huge debt of gratitude to not follow mainstream methods sheepishly and to embrace clearly beneficial therapies whole-heartedly and to introduce these to his patients and peers.
He writes the following about the effect of therapeutically applied ozone:

  1. It stimulates the production of white blood cells, which are necessary to fight infection.
  2. It increases oxygen and hemoglobin disassociation, thus increasing the delivery of oxygen from the blood to the cells. 
  3. It increases red blood cell membrane distensibility, thus enhancing their flexibility and effectiveness. 
  4. Bio-oxidative therapies increase the production of interferon and Tumor Necrosis Factor, which the body uses to fight infections and cancers.
  5. They increase the efficiency of the anti-oxidant enzyme system, which scavenges excess free radicals in the body.
  6. Bio-oxidative therapies increase tissue oxygenation, thus bringing about patient improvement.

“PEOPLE WITH DISEASES / CHALLENGES, almost always characterized by chronic oxidant stress, are universally observed to improve when ozone therapy is properly administered.
Dr. Frank Shallenberger

The most common question by those who understand the body is “how can one reverse oxidative stress by using oxidant material?”
In small enough doses, which is what is provided in a steam sauna trans-dermal setting, ozone acts to stimulate the anti-oxidant systems that decrease the oxidant stress associated with so many health challenges. The limited notion that excessive oxidant production leads to disease and dysfuntion makes no sense, as there is nothing as biologically important as an adequate supply of oxidants – this is pro-oxidative therapy.

“Contrary to the dogma that the super-oxide anion and hydrogen peroxide formation are very highly deleterious to cell function and healthy aging, we suggest this premise is flawed… The latter two play an intrinsic role in the regulated turnover of proteins, rather than randomly causing damage and inactivation.” 

Anti-oxidant stress is caused by a lack of adequate anti-oxidant buffering capability, so stimulating an increased synthesis of anti-oxidant buffering enzymes is what subtle oxygen / ozone therapy ALSO does.

Dr Frank Shallenberger


He’s a solid researcher and one of the original crusaders and long-time advocates of ozone therapies. We owe him a huge debt of gratitude for introducing these to many lay people through ceaseless writing and interviews and public relations. – from 38:00 minutes into it to 39:55.
More on oxygen / ozone therapies by Ed McCabe at

One reason that scientists are quick to jump on the ozone-is-equal-to-bad-stuff bandwagon, is that when one looks up ozone at Medline, almost all references are about the toxic effects on pulmonary tissues – a very narrow application – at best.
An exception is a study out of Tulane University where a physician had used ozonated water to bath the peritoneal cavity before closing the wound – bacteriostatic – with amazing success at decreasing the incidence of infection after surgery. (And who picked up on this wonder? NO ONE!)
The medical use of ozone has a safety history that is unprecedented in modern medicine.
Have a glance at Ed McCabe’s amazing research and chronology of it’s use mentioned above.

A straight-up explanation of mitigating disease in Africa in 2013 by Dr Rowen

"I asked Dr. Howard Robins to come with me to Sierra Leone as he particularly perfected the “Robins” technique of direct intravenous ozone gas infusion, commonly called DIV. This is exceptionally inexpensive to do, and generates scant medical waste, both property important when dealing with poor Africans, and a disease to easily transmitted by contamination.  

Dr. Robins first thought I was nuts to go to Africa and place myself at risk. But I had no fear of Ebola armed with ozone. When he realized I might get all the credit for the particular technique he pioneered, he quickly changed his mind and we went to the battlefield together as brothers to equally share in success or failure.   

​Our saga of the African experience and its aftermath is posted on my Facebook page: The purpose of this article on our office site is to explain in simple terms the incredible physiological effects of oxidation therapy, particularly ozone, and why it might be of help to so many problems. I am not suggesting that ozone cures anything. And of course, the authorities would not take kindly to it. But oxidation therapies (inclusive of intravenous hydrogen peroxide, ultraviolet blood irradiation therapy, high dose IV vitamin C) and others all seemingly have cross over physiological effects I mentioned above. Hence, since all body processes require oxygen to heal, and at the very least, we seem to get better rheological properties of blood and oxygen delivery, it only makes sense that these therapies might help a wide variety of health challenges to actually heal. 

I have been teaching didactic oxidation courses since about 1994. My wife and I have been teaching hands on ozone techniques since 2004. You can see the results of oxidation therapy at our You Tube channel:  
Now, to close the story on Ebola, that dread disease, it appears at the time of this writing to be the “Wicked Witch of the West” like in the Wizard of Oz. She was VERY evil. Ebola is VERY deadly. The witch had a secret weakness Dorothy accidently discovered – water made her melt!!!!!  I suspected ozone would have a similar effect on Ebola, but not to the effect we’ve seen to date. Neither Dr. Robins nor I suspected that Ebola might ever melt away as fast as the wicked witch did, but in reports we have gotten from Sierra Leone, it seems that is exactly what is happening. I have learned that several patients to date have recovered from documented Ebola infection in just a few days receiving ozone therapy in any form: IV, rectal or even ozone water. We expected ozone to quickly cure Ebola. That is why we went. But this easily? Yes, even we are surprised.  
This is a major discovery, and to me, a medical triumph of our time – that a class 4 deadly feared pathogen, which fear has gripped the world, has a vulnerability as simple as the wicked witch of the Wizard of Oz - is simply like jumping “somewhere over the rainbow”.  

Oh, I should also mention the implications of the above on the use of ozone for joint conditions such as degenerative arthritis. Remember, the most important item for any of your cells is oxygen! Ozone is oxygen as O3 but carried within a larger percentage of O2. Arthritic joints are starving for oxygen as the inflammation therein reduces oxygen diffusion from the joint capsule (where the circulation is) to the needy cartilage cells. Inflammation in the joint creates chemicals which damage and degrade your cartilage. 

Silvia Menendez, PhD of Cuba and her team have conducted a masterful study on what happens when ozone is administered into joints. Inflammatory proteins fall, glutathione (a principle healing molecule) rises, levels of anti-oxidant enzymes rise. And simply put, this can pave the way for natural healing abilities. Please visit my you tube channel to see the marvelous results of ozone therapy for joints!

Ozone kills the Klebsiella Pneumniae bacteria in 5 minutes. A new medical discovery in Brazil may help in the fight against this dangerous bacteria which is often resistant to antibiotics.
University of Sao Paulo researchers led by Dr. Glacus Souza Brito have proved the efficacy of the gas – ozone in the multiresistant bacterium Klebsiella Pneumoniae Carbapenemase, which has caused 319 cases of infection and 46 deaths in Brazil between August, 2009 and October, 2010. Studies conducted over a year and multiple tests were necessary to conclude that ozone is capable of killing the bacteria in five minutes.

The research was conducted with no sponsors from any commercial company or laboratory. It is necessary to underline that the ozone therapy in Brazil, in spite of the enormous efforts on the part of the Brazilian Association of Ozone Therapy is still NOT ‘regularized’. Let’s hope that with these findings the Brazilian administration will recognize a simple fact about ozonotherapy: it works!

The Madrid Declaration on Ozone Therapy serves as a source of guidance and reference for all those who practice ozone therapy.
It’s compiled from a serious medical scientific exchange with the objective of having a global document to apply to patient care and improve clinical outcomes by health care professionals.


If a mainstream therapy has a lot of side effects and targets predominately symptoms, why would it still be used and prescribed as is often the case?

The answer has to do with the “business” of medicine rather than the actual practice of it. The flip side of this answer is: any alternative therapy would be mainstream if it were more profitable than the therapy it replaces.

It is not physicians who decide what is allowable and what isn’t. It is the pharmaceutical complex, THEIR STAKEHOLDERS, LOBBYISTS and partnerships with members of the medical industry / financial establishment / governemnt institutions / etc that make these decisions. In other words, the bottom line is always best served with therapies and meds that treat symptoms expensively and may not necessarily cure the root cause.
Another reason is that any treatment, to be accepted as mainstream, requires expensive (upwards of 5 million+ dollars) FDA mandatory testing – double blind cross-over – and publishing in mainstream journals supported by big pharma ad dollars.

Treatments and therapies that are not looking to be exceedingly porfitable will not be able to generate this amount of needed research funding and never leave the starting gate.

Efficacy is important in our health/disease care system, but not as important as profits. What could be more profitable than a therapy / treatment that eases symptoms while at the same time not curing the the problem?

Ozone therapies as simple as proper steam saunas sessions or as complex as tumour injections will remain alternative rather than become mainstream and acceptable, as long as the present profit paradigm in health care prevails – repulsive as this may be to both some caring physicians and all of the rest of us needing gentle attention. Thinking outside of the crammed and limited profit box is only seen sporadically, silently and stealthfully.

Because of the powerful results achieved with ozone saunas, they can be used as an alternative for intravenous treatments.


Unfortunately about the only time that any of us hear about ozone in the news is in the context of measuring pollution. It is even perceived, incorrectly, as being part of, or even a major ingredient in pollution (even by some ‘scientists’).
When we create pollution – including hydrocarbons (those organic compounds consisting entirely of hydrogen and carbon molecules – from a group of 14 hydrides – generally colourless and hydrophobic and more prevalent with the invention of combustion engines and factories), then ozone, in the higher stratospheres, begins to react with and neutrilze pollution’s hydrocarbons. Atmospheric nitrogen is also involved in this air-borne pollution.

Scientists in this past century had to find a way to measure the amount of smog in this air. They picked on ozone, not becuase it was evil or the most irritating or the main constituent. It was because it closely correlates with the amount of pollution present in the air that the ozone is re-acting with and detoxifying; and because it is easy and inexpensive to measure; and because measuring any of the other main constituents of smog is very expensive and complex.

So high ozone levels ONLY means high peroxide, hydro-carbon and nitrate levels. The latter are the culprits which cause substantial respiratory injury, while the ozone is attracted for nature’s brilliant cleanup.

One reason that scientists are quick to jump on the ‘ozone-is-equal-to-bad-stuff’ bandwagon, is that no one corrects the pundits – when one looks up ozone at Medline, almost all references are about the toxic effects on pulmonary tissues – a very narrow application at best – and never allowed / practiced by an ozone / oxygen practitioner.
An exception is a study out of Tulane University where a physician had used ozonated water to bathe the peritoneal cavity before closing wounds – bacteriostatic use – with amazing success at decreasing the incidence of infection after surgery.
(And who picked up on this miracle? NO ONE!)


External oxygen – ozone infusion of legs, also called “bagging”, is non-invasive and highly effective. A special bag is wrapped around the affected limb(s) and ozone flows into the bag and constantly keeps the limb bathed in it. This is effective in supporting leg and toe ulcers, persistent sores, lesions and diabetic related infections and neuropathy, etc.
The results can be VERY rapid. Surgery and amputation for diabetic related infected toes have been cancelled. Many happy feet and toes are still with us because of this simple form of ozone influsion.

Un-intrusive ozone steam sauna sessions can produce remarkable improvements in our blood circulation – allowing both the major and secondary symptoms of adult-onset diabetes to improve. The blood circulation of many diabetics is sluggish and compromised – actual blood flow to their vital organs and tissues can be quite diminished. This can cause challenges ranging from poor digestion all the way to under-oxygenated blood to their head and extremities – feet and hands.
The blood flow that does reach the feet can be quite de-oxygenated. This sluggish oxygen-depleted blood cannot perform the necessary healing of the sores and infections that occur. Some folks resort to anti-biotics. Over time this cannot do the job (reducing further the possibility of healing which explains why diabetics’ ulcerations can even lead to gangrene and amputation, no matter how much anti-biotic is thrown at the challenge) and why other health issues become more difficult to manage or become exacerbated at the same time. 

OZONE removes / annihilates all damaged, infected and unhealthy cells and unwanted pathogens, viruses, fungus, gangrene tissue, etc while supporting the healthy cells to be their best. Ozone has a very strong anti-bacterial action even at low doses. The gentle heat / steam saunas and limb bagging are both spot-on therapies.

Oxygen is important for all cell metabolisms, ATP (energy) production and is critical for deep healing processes. Oxygen prevents wounds from becoming further infected, induces angiogenesis, differentiation, migration and proliferation of cells, as well as collagen synthesis and promotes wound contraction.

Many years ago, research has shown that a key molecule – 2,3-diphosphoglycerate – is in reduced supply in a diabetic. When more ozone / oxygen is introduced into the blood, then more 2,3-diphosphoglycerate is produced and the efficiency of the oxygen-delivery system of the blood circulation improves. Simultaneously macrophages (specific white blood cells – esp neutrophils) become more empowered, efficient and active – it improves their work ethic! The ozone also appears to enhance the activity of cellular metabolism, the continual conversion of energy in the mitochondria. The ozone / oxygen sessions oxygenate the organs, tissues and physical functions – gets the whole body processes running better. Steam saunas and limb bagging – both spot-on therapies.

Unhappy under-oxygenated cells have lower levels of enzyme activity, are less stable and just don’t carry out their jobs very well. The critters that O2 removes and destroys, thrive on an oxygen-limited environment – just what you don’t want!

I’ve seen diabetic sores on legs and toes disappear after two sessions!  None of us have the same reactions and result, of course. The oxygen / ozone does more than just deal with the festering, incurable sores. The tiny unhappy capillaries around these areas that hamper the blood supply from moving smoothly and properly in the affected areas – removing toxins and debris and delivering nutrients – all enhanced and leading to enhanced healing. The surprise was that in two instances it only took two average sessions to reverse several years of severe damage! 
Ozone / oxygen therapy is very safe – safer than any other therapy I know of.

Ozone / oxygen treatments are widely available in other countries and are completely legal there.

For example, in every German holistic clinic, doctors use ozone / oxygen sessions long before chemo and radiation is introduced to their patients and continue using it to reduce the toxic side effects of conventional therapies.

With the advent of pharmaceuticals we forget how they cured in ‘the GOOD ol’ days’.

Your body continually burns oxygen as part of many functions ~ to convert food into energy, for example. Oxygen is an integral part of natural internal detoxification, as another example. If there is a continuous or intermittent insufficiency, an imbalance and eventually some sort of disease, can be the result. Lack of oxygen not only causes pH and physical imbalances and ailments, but also tampers with the proper functioning of red blood cells. This can occur to such a degree that red blood cells clump together – either randomly or in rouleaus that look like rolls of coins. If prolonged we can feel this in the form of mental and physical fatigue, foggy thinking and even depression. This is becoming ever more common yet unnecessary ~ and certainy not requiring heavy medication (that should be your last resort).

No self-respecting pathogens can live in an oxygenated / ozone environment – even at the cellualr level. For example, red blood cells that are under-oxygenated are also under functioning – less toxins moving out and less nutritional elements being circulated to where they are needed and this leads to depletion and mal-function. This is where we often see microscopy images of red blood cells all stuck together.

OZONE / OXYGEN THERAPY is not a drug nor a magic bullet. It is a simple, elegant, non-toxic and therapeutic tool which can aid in surmounting most health challenges and diseases – or a smart part of a comprehensive, individualized approach in conjunction with other synergistic modalities – or as smart health maintenance, pro-active detoxification and prevention on it’s own.

“Contrary to the dogma that the superoxide anion and hydrogen peroxide formation are very highly deleterious to cell function and healthy aging, we suggest this premise is flawed… The latter two play an intrinsic role in the regulated turnover of proteins, rather than randomly causing damage and inactivation.” (Dr. Frank Shallenberger)

Anti-oxidant stress is caused by a lack of adequate anti-oxidant buffering capability, so stimulating an increased synthesis of anti-oxidant buffering enzymes is what subtle ozone / oxygen therapy also does.

Caution: Do not allow articles ABOUT HYDROGEN PEROXIDE such as these to cause you to experiment.
Contact a naturopathic doctor or wholistic therapist with experience in this field before beginning your own ozone program.

Buyer Beware: There are many methods of detoxification.
Some methods called chelation, are with the use of IV-applied chemicals such as EDTA, DMPS and DMSA – very good if your health is very seriously compromised and a fast and serious intervention is a matter of life or death. These are usually done at a naturopath’s office and occasionally by a very progressive mainstream GP or physician.

HOWEVER, one should DEFINITELY have all metal dental fillings removed as a first step (esp mercury fillings) before embarking on such a serious invasive therapy. Chelation is an extreme pathway to wellness and requires simultaneous, cautious re-mineralization or it could lead to more problems.

“I got to keep my toes! I’ve been a diabetic for decades and altough I have always taken my medications, my big right toe had became infected and all the anti-biotics didn’t work – for some two plus years. I was slated for an operation. But my stubborn daughter had me do a few sessions of ozone / oxygen – not my whole body but just my legs and feet – and just to humour her, I went along with it and I am so glad I did. The improvement was instantly noticeable and by the time I was to go for the amputation, my big toe had heeled – much to the awe of my doctor who thought it had to be a delayed effect of the anti-biotics (he doesn’t do miracles!… )

“I have diabetes. I cannot walk more than across my apartment and always with pain. I hate going out with my walker. Each ozone / oxygen session with Merrie now leaves me pain free for about three days and allows me to walk several blocks without help – I can now make it to the local coffeeshop without shuffeling like an old man.
