The first time I heard about ozone therapy was while I was taking a workshop at the Four Winds Society in LA. It was during a period of time when I was at the lowest point I can remember physically. Determined to find deeper keys to unlock my healing potential, I decided to embark on a workshop in shamanic light body training taught by Alberto Villoldo. I enrolled with about 250 other healers of different sorts. In this huge hall filled with people, I happened to be sitting next to a man wielding a very high quality low lever laser. As fate should have it, I ended up partnering up for an exercise with this guy, the renowned biohacker Dave Asprey, founder of the bulletproof executive website. Without being privy to any knowledge of his experience in the realm of biohacking, he casually shared with me that he had healed from Lyme disease using ozone. It is worth mentioning that at the time I had no idea why I felt so awful.
Fast forward, six months later... With some minor guidance from Dave Asprey, I ordered an ozone sauna for my personal use. Before jumping headfirst into the ozone treatments I read as much information as I could find on the subject. This led me to getting my first intravenous ozone treatment with the renowned ozone physician Robert Rowen. The clinic, was a good introduction to ozone but was not sustainable for me as the cost was beyond my means. Ironically, at the clinic I was told that ozone saunas would not yield much benefit... but that is exactly what ended up becoming my saving grace.
Initially, the ozone saunas were extremely uncomfortable and left me with the infamous ozone rash. I was pleased to find that as the rashes went away, so did moles and discolored spots on my back that I believed I had a genetic predisposition for. I now have found research that postulates that some moles are caused by viruses. I also noticed that if I took certain homeopathic detox remedies after the sauna, my recovery time was cut in half. It took about 6 months for me to notice that I was really improving.
There is a tremendous amount of research on ozone used for therapeutic healing purposes.
In the book “Flood your body with oxygen” by Ed McCabe. He sites the work of Frank Shallenberger, M.D., H.M.D. who is considered one of the leading authorities on medical ozone autohemotherapy. In his words there are “13 major effects of ozone on humans”.
- Ozone stimulates the production of white blood cells thereby protecting the body from viruses, bacteria, fungi and cancer.
- Ozone increases interferon levels significantly (up to 400-900%). These interferons orchestrate every aspect of the immune system and are produced by cells infected with viruses. Interferons warn adjacent, healthy cells of the likelihood of infection, in turn they are rendered non-permissive host cells. This inhibits viral replication.
- Ozone stimulates the production of tumor necrosis factor.
- Ozone stimulates the secretion of IL-2. Interleukin-2 is one of the cornerstones of the immune system.
- Ozone kills most bacteria at low concentrations. The metabolism of most bacteria is on average 1/17th as efficient as our own. Because of this, most cannot afford to produce disposable antioxidant enzymes such as catalase. Very few bacteria can live in an environment composed of more that 2% ozone.
- Ozone is effective against all types of fungi. This includes candida albicans among others.
- Ozone fights viruses in a variety of ways. The part of a virus most sensitive to oxidation is the reproductive structure.
Another aspect of ozone that I gleaned from Dave Asprey’s bulletproof conference is that ozone challenges the bodies antioxidant levels. Through this process, ozone actually makes the SOD and glutathione levels much higher in the body. So as you challenge your natural antioxidants you make them stronger!
It is important to note that due to the strength of this anti bacterial/antiviral program it is extremely important to have a thorough detoxifying system in place. Equally important to note is that if you have methylation issues, you will want to take it REALLY slow! I used my infrared sauna in conjunction with this treatment and used supportive detoxification protocols to ensure I wasn’t going to create more problems in my body than I could handle. Today I use ozone as a tune up. I use it about every two weeks and whenever my body feels a little out of balance.
Although ozone therapy may be too “cutting edge” to some, I highly recommend anyone with serious health challenges to do their homework. There is a tremendous amount of science and research on ozone therapy and I am so grateful to all the physicians who have stuck their neck out to share both the research and the treatments.
May your reality be radiant!
