In 1856, just 16 years after its discovery (by homeopath Joseph Lloyd Martin), ozone was first used in a health care setting to disinfect operating rooms and sterilize surgical instruments. This surgical application has recently been rediscovered. By the end of the 19th Century the use of ozone to disinfect drinking water of bacteria and viruses was well established in mainland Europe.

The earliest record of therapeutic use of ozone in an English language medical journal is in 1885 titled 'Ozone' by Charles J. Kenworthy, M. D., M.R.S.V. from Jacksonville USA, published by the Florida Medical Association. Today Florida is where the prohibition of ozone therapy is most rigorously enforced, while a short distance away in Cuba medical ozone is liberally researched and used, with ozone generators in every hospital.

Ozone Therapy Has Proven Effective In The Producing Nitric Oxide,
Keeping Blood Vessels Elastic And Removing Plaques


In 1892 The Lancet published an article describing the administration of ozone for treatment of tuberculosis. In 1902 they published another article claiming success in treating chronic middle ear deafness with ozone

During the first world war (1914-18) Doctors by then familiar with ozone's anti bacterial properties, and with few other medical resources available to them applied it topically to infected wounds and discovered ozone not only remedied infection, but also had hemodynamic and anti inflammatory properties. In The Lancet of 1916, the following is reported by Major George Stoker, MRCS:

“The accompanying tabulation statement of the results of the first 21 cases treated by ozone at the Queen Alexandria Military Hospital “England” cannot be regarded as anything but satisfactory from every standpoint, be it humanitarian, scientific or economic. The cases were, for the most part, those of cavities and sinuses in the femur and tibia. It is the great experience of those who have seen a great deal of war surgery that such cases obstinately resist treatment and are apt to remain unhealed for months and years ... I have failed in only one case ... the properties of ozone which have a wonderful healing effect are ... an increased flow of blood to the affected part ... as a germicide it destroys all hostile micro-organic growth ... as the French chemist Hennocque has shown it has great powers in the formation of oxyhaemoglobin ... at present our knowledge of the effects of ozone is but small, but later I hope to bring before the medical public further satisfactory facts with reference to its working and results”

Stoker's sequel to this article was published the following year, and since then there have been few publications of ozone research by medical associations in English speaking countries, notable articles being Quain's "Ozone Treatment of Wounds" (The Lancet 1940), Thwaities' "Ozone Healing" (Australian Medical Journal, 1977), and Braggs' "Are Worry Free Blood Transfusions Just a Whiff of Ozone Away" (Canadian Medical Journal 1993). However, many medical journals published by international specialist medical research societies have in recent years lent considerable publicity to ozone research.

Air Pollution

Ozone Therapy is not a new therapy. It is invented by Germans and is practiced in Germany for over 100 years. Germany, Italy, France, Russia are the European nations where it is legalized. Japan, Cuba, Lain American countries and our neighbors like Malaysia, Thailand, Myanmar, etc are also using it. It was also used extensively in USA before the World War I following which political pressure by Pharma Giants has prevented its growth in USA.

The earliest record of therapeutic use of ozone in an English language medical journal is in 1885 titled 'Ozone' by Charles J. Kenworthy, M. D., M.R.S.V. from Jacksonville USA, published by the Florida Medical Association. In 1892 The Lancet published an article describing the administration of ozone for treatment of tuberculosis.

Ozone mainly interacts with blood components to produce its effects. It acts on red blood cells and increases its glucose uptake. It stimulates red blood cell’s metabolism and make them energetic. It makes their cell membrane more elastic and pliable which means improved circulation

Ozone is a very energetic form of pure oxygen produced in nature. The new growth in rain forests and the plankton in the sea are continually producing ozone, which rises up into the stratosphere forming a layer which filters out a lot of harmful ultraviolet radiation. Ozone is also produced by industrial emissions, which does not rise up but causes smog and is harmful to humans and to plants. Ozone attaches to particles of pollutants and toxic waste in the atmosphere, oxidising them and thereby effectively neutralising them. Due to the enormous quantities of pollutants emitted by the industrial world, the ozone layer has become severely depleted, making humans more susceptible to sunburn.

Medical ozone can be generated by exposing oxygen to an electric field. The oxygen gas which has 2 atoms [O2] is split, and the atoms regroup into threes [O3]. This ozone gas [O3] is unstable and soon rearranges itself into oxygen [O2] again. Ozone was used in Germany before the 2nd World War, as a very effective and cheap means of sanitising municipal drinking water. This function is being explored again by modern industrialists. Medical ozone is also a therapeutic tool of great power, which can aid the body in regaining health.

Oxygen Chamber Room

Ozone therapy is a powerful cleansing modality. Ozone is produced by lightening in nature and by pulsing high currents of electricity through medical grade oxygen. Oxygen is O2 and Ozone is O3. Ozone increases the stability of normal cells and it destroys all those immature, sick and deformed cells, which are foreign to the body. Ozone is oxygen with an extra molecule added. Electrically, Ozone is oxygen with a higher energy level. It is unstable and highly reactive. Oxygen is the most vital element required for human life and it is the key to good health. The best way to optimize health is to oxygenate every cell in our body. The more oxygen we have in our system, the more energy we produce and the more efficiently we can eliminate wastes. Ozone not only kills bacteria, but it also destroys viruses and parasites. If the four major components of disease are caused by bacteria, viruses, parasites, or fungi then you can see how valuable ozone can be in the healing process.

When ozone is used in intravenous infusions, the extra molecule breaks down releasing oxygen into the circulation. Ozone therapy works directly on the red globules which mean that it increases transport capacity of the circulatory system. If pure oxygen were to be used instead, there would be many hazards involved, making the infusion of oxygen directly into the blood stream a dangerous procedure. In many cases, very small strengths of hydrogen peroxide are replacing ozone therapy mainly because it is easier to store in bottles and use without having the oxygen machine connected to the ozone machine.

Side effects of high concentrations of ozone like burning your eyes and coughing, are similar to those of other oxidants that make up smog. Even though ozone therapy has not been evaluated by clinical trials, many attempts to discredit it as "quackery" have been published using incomplete data which quote scientific research to prove a point using tax payer dollars. There are many health professionals around the world who administer medical ozone therapy, oxygen and hydrogen peroxide in their treatments. Why is this? Because it works and these doctors improve the health of their patients instead of maintaining their disease problem.

Ozone therapy is truly a blessing in disguise. It can be used as a remedy for aging, aids, alcoholism, allergies, arthritis, asthma, cancer, constipation, diabetes, drug addiction, fungal and yeast infection, gangrene, health risks, heart problems, hepatitis, herpes, absorption, multiple sclerosis, overweight problems, parasites, periodontal disease, toxic metals, tuberculosis, ulcers and weakened immune systems.
