Ozone is a powerful and rapidly reacting super oxygen that is consumed within minutes after its production. It is produced from oxygen through the application of an electric current. When applied directly it kills bacteria, viruses, parasites and mold. When given systemically it has the effect of improving oxygen utilization and enhancing energy production. Also, by creating a mild oxidative stress, it stimulates the immune system to be more active. Because it is unstable, ozone must be utilized within several minutes of being produced, or it will no longer be effective.
We have been using ozone for several years to treat musculoskeletal problems as a component of prolotherapy. We have given ozone rectally to treat intestinal problems such as colitis. In its strongest systemic formulation, we have given ozone by major autohemotransfusion (MAH). The patient’s blood is withdrawn through a needle by gravity, heparinized so it doesn’t clot, then combined with an equal volume of ozone at high concentration, and infused back into the patient. This process has required about 40 minutes, or 80 minutes for a double-pass.
This year I learned about the 10-pass technique from Dr. Robert Rowan, who has been responsible for the proliferation of ozone therapy in the United States, along with Dr. Frank Shallenberger. Ten passes, or ten times the treatment of a single pass, can be given within 60-90 minutes by using a special ozone machine to vacuum the blood into a glass bottle, then return it rapidly by applying pressure into the bottle.Continue Reading
