OZONE THERAPY – Fritz Schellander (ozone doctor)

OZONE THERAPY – Fritz Schellander

Ozone therapy is one of the most powerful and versatile therapies known today. Extensive medical research on ozone therapy has been done primarily in Europe. Through its mechanism of action, ozone has beneficial effects on every part of the body.

The effects include:

1. Inactivation of bacteria, viruses and fungi: Ozone disrupts the integrity of the bacterial cell envelope through peroxidation of the phospholipids and lipoproteins. In fungi, ozone inhibits cell growth at certain stages. With viruses, the ozone oxidizes the viral capsid and disrupts the reproductive cycle by interrupting the virus-to-cell contact with peroxidation. Cells previously infected by viruses are more susceptible to destruction by the peroxide produced through ozonolysis, because they have weak enzyme coatings.

2. Enhancement of circulation: In circulatory disease, a clumping of red blood cells hinders blood flow and decreases oxygen absorption due to reduced surface area. There is a decrease in red blood cell flexibility which prevents them traveling down the tiniest capillaries, and blood viscosity increases. With ozone therapy, clumping is reduced or eliminated and flexibility is restored, along with oxygen carrying ability. Oxygenation of the tissues increases as the arterial partial pressure increases, and viscosity decreases. Ozone also oxidizes the plaque in arteries allowing the removal of the breakdown products, unclogging vessels.

3. Stimulation of oxygen metabolism: Ozone causes an increase in the red blood cell glycolysis rate. This leads to the stimulation of 2.3-diphosphoglycerate which shifts the oxyhemoglobin disassociation curve to the right. This leads to an increase in the amount of oxygen released to the surrounding tissues. There is a stimulation of the production of the enzymes which act as free radical scavengers and cell wall protectors: glutathione peroxidase, catalase and superoxide dismutase.

Ozone activates the Krebs cycle by enhancing oxidative decarboxylation of pyruvate, stimulating production of ATP.

4. Dissolution of malignant tumors: Malignant cells have an increased rate of glycolysis which leads to the production of more lactic acid. With ozone therapy, there is a significant decrease in lactate production, showing that the metabolism is being inhibited. Tumor cells have a peroxide intolerance due to insufficient glutathione peroxidase and catalase. Ozone is thus able to oxidize the outer lipid layer of malignant cells and destroy them through cell lysis.

5. Activation of the immune system: Ozone stimulates the production of gamma interferon and interleukin-2 in the body. From this there is a cascade of subsequent immunological reactions.

6. Formation of peroxides: Ozone reacts with the unsaturated fatty acids of the lipid layer in cellular membranes, forming hydro peroxides. Lipid peroxidation products include peroxyl radicals, vital for killer cell action.

FREE RADICAL PATHOLOGY – excerpted from “Chelation Therapy”

From the beginning of time, man has searched for a way to regain youth and retard aging. Countless cures, remedies and potions have come along, each promising to be the real thing. Medical doctors have searched for an answer as to why people age and why the degenerative diseases take such a toll. The free radical theory attempts to explain these problems.  It is believed that man’s maximum lifespan depends primarily on genetics.

Whether or not the lifespan is fulfilled is believed to be dependent on the damage that free radicals cause to DNA, leading to degenerative diseases such as diabetes, arthritis, atherosclerosis, Parkinson’s and Alzheimer’s.

Humans are composed of 75 trillion highly specialized cells. These cells vary a great deal in structure and in the functions they perform. Free radicals are produced in our cells due to normal respiration and assimilation of sugar. Atoms normally contain an even number of paired electrons. During chemical reactions, electrons become unpaired momentarily, allowing the reaction to occur. If for some reason, an electron becomes separated, it will cause an imbalance and become a free radical.

This unbalanced free radical can damage cells that do not have sufficient enzyme protection. These enzymes are catalase, reductase, glutathione peroxidase and superoxide dismutase. In healthy cells, these enzymes prevent cell damage from free radicals. When cellular health declines due to toxic buildup, and enzyme production declines, free radicals are able to cause damage. It is believed that degenerative disease is caused by this type of action.

We can limit the damage caused by free radicals by arming ourselves with free radical scavengers are Vitamin E, Vitamin C,

Vitamin A and beta carotene, and selenium.
