Oxygen Therapy
Also Known As:
Ozone Therapy, Bio-oxidative Therapies
Summary:

Oxygen therapy introduces substances into the body that are supposed to release oxygen. The extra oxygen is believed to increase the body’s ability to destroy disease-causing cells. Two of the most common compounds used in oxygen therapy are hydrogen peroxide and ozone – a chemically active form of oxygen.

Description:

The therapeutic use of medical ozone and hydrogen peroxide is known as ‘bio-oxidative therapies’; or simply ‘oxygen therapies’;. Oxygen therapy is considered as a safe, effective and low-cost adjuvant therapy for a wide spectrum of diseases including candida, cancer, heart problems and HIV related infections. Oxygen therapy introduces substances into the body that are supposed to release oxygen. The extra oxygen is believed to increase the body’s ability to destroy disease-causing cells. Two of the most common compounds used in oxygen therapy are hydrogen peroxide and ozone – a chemically active form of oxygen. This type of therapy is different from the common medical uses of oxygen, which involve increasing the amount of oxygen gas in inhaled air. It is also different from hyperbaric oxygen (HBO), which involves the use of pressurised oxygen gas.

Oxygen therapy involves administering small amounts of diluted ozone and hydrogen peroxide into the body for the prevention and treatment of disease. The use of hydrogen peroxide and ozone in medicine is based on the belief that the accumulation of toxins in the body is normally burnt up by the process of oxidation, a process wherein a substance is changed chemically because of the effect of oxygen on it. Oxidation breaks the toxins down into carbon dioxide and water, and eliminates them from the body. However, if the oxygen system of the body is weak or deficient (whether through lack of exercise, environmental pollution, poor diet, smoking, or improper breathing), our bodies cannot eliminate them adequately and a toxic reaction can occur.

In minor cases, a toxic build-up can lead to fatigue, while a wide range of diseases can result when poor oxygenation is chronic. Although ozone and hydrogen peroxide are highly toxic in their purified state, they have been found to be both safe and effective when diluted to therapeutic levels for medical use. When administered in prescribed amounts by a qualified practitioner, the chances of experiencing adverse reactions to bio-oxidative therapies are extremely small.

Hydrogen Peroxide

Hydrogen peroxide (H202) is made up of two hydrogen atoms and two oxygen atoms. A powerful oxidiser, hydrogen peroxide kills bacteria, viruses and fungi; most of us have used a 3% solution of hydrogen peroxide externally to disinfect wounds. The most common form of hydrogen peroxide therapy used by doctors calls for small amounts of 30% reagent grade hydrogen peroxide added to purified water and administered as an intravenous drip.

Ozone

Ozone (O3) is an energised form of oxygen with extra electrons. Ozone was not used medically until 1915, when it was found to be an effective disinfectant of wounds and skin diseases.

History:

During the 1930s, Otto Warburg, MD, a winner of the Nobel Prize in 1931 for his research on respiratory enzymes, discovered that cancer cells have a lower respiration rate than normal cells. He reasoned that cancer cells thrived in a low-oxygen environment and that increased oxygen levels might therefore harm and even kill them. Many of the beliefs held by oxygen therapy practitioners are based on Dr. Warburg’s theories concerning cancer. Ozone therapy has been used by licensed physicians in Germany since the early 1960’s, while hydrogen peroxide therapy was developed in the United States primarily by Dr. C.H. Farr, nominee for the 1993 Nobel prize in Medicine.
