Ozone Applications – (ozone therapy) Brad Hunter, P.Eng.

Ozone Applications – Brad Hunter, P.Eng.

Ozone is triatomic oxygen. As a gas it is blue; both liquid ozone (-112 C) and solid ozone (-193 C) are a deep blue color. It

is this blue ozone in the atmosphere that causes the sky to be blue. At altitudes from 25-30 km ozone is created by a portion

of the sun’s ultraviolet spectrum. It exists as a gas in concentrations of 10-20 parts per million (ppm). In these

concentrations, ozone is a powerful absorber of a narrow portion of the sun’s ultraviolet radiation.

At ground level, ozone exists in a greatly diluted state and is always present in minute quantities (.001-.003 ppm) which we

breathe in. It does not become an irritant until levels above .1 ppm are exceeded for over eight hours. Below those levels

there have never been any permanent detrimental effects from inhaling it.

Ozone is created naturally by crashing surf, whitewater rapids, and lightning storms.

Recently, ozone has come to public attention as an alleged pollutant in smog. In order to measure hydrocarbon air pollution,

an index is required. High levels of hydrocarbons have a corresponding ozone level (since the ozone is created from, and

attracted to, the pollutants), so by measuring the ozone, scientists can measure indirectly how bad the pollution is. What is

not mentioned is that the ozone molecule lasts for a maximum of 20 minutes, and usually much less, as it tirelessly eats up

the hydrocarbon pollution by oxidizing it. The harmful constituents of smog: carbon monoxide, benzene, chlorides, sulphur

dioxide, and nitric oxide are swiftly oxidized on contact by ozone, thus cleaning the air.

Ozone has long been internationally recognized as the most powerful oxidant next to hydroxyl, which is a mixture of ozone

with hydrogen peroxide. Ozone is used in over 30 different industries as an industrial oxidizer and sterilant. Existing

applications include: synthetic fibers, chemicals, jet lubricants, air scrubbing for clean rooms, treatment of industrial

wastes, potable water treatment, bottling plants, sewage treatment, aquaculture, aquarium sanitation, food preservation,

sterilization of containers, deodorization, pulpwood bleaching, metal extraction, etc.

Ozone’s most well known use is in water treatment as a primary stage disinfectant because of its bactericidal and virucidal

efficacy. Both the EPA and the FDA acknowledge ozone’s ability to oxidize 99.9992% of all waterborne pathogens.

Ozone has been used for human health since 1870, and is presently employed in 24 countries. Its widest use is in Germany,

where over 7000 doctors have treated more than 12,000,000 people since WW II. In the United States, the FDA has not allowed

testing of ozone, and, since 1933, has actively persecuted physicians who use it. Nevertheless, more and more doctors are

turning to ozone therapy as a crucial tool for the treatment of serious diseases. In fourteen states, Alaska, Washington,

Colorado, Oklahoma, New Mexico, Nevada, North Carolina, New York, Texas, Georgia, Ohio, Minnesota, Florida and California,

physicians are now able to employ any therapeutic technique, including ozone, without fear of persecution. In Dr. H.E.

Sartori’s recent book, the multiple uses of ozone for human health, dentistry, animal health and industrial uses are well

covered. Tragically, Dr. Sartori himself was recently jailed for administering ozone in Virginia.

There are three technologies utilized for the generation of ozone:
# Ultraviolet light
# Corona discharge
# Cold plasma.

Ultraviolet light in the 180-190 nanometer wavelength generates ozone from ambient air without producing nitric oxide

compounds. But UV cannot generate the concentrations necessary for medical or industrial applications, even with oxygen feed.

Typically, UV systems produce only 1-3 ug/ml, sufficient only for air purification and cleaning of water in small quantities.

UV lamps degrade quickly and are expensive to replace.

Corona discharge generates high concentrations of ozone, up to 150 ug/ml, required for industrial applications. If it is

properly engineered and used in conjunction with an air dryer, it may be used with ambient air. It is the most cost effective

way to produce large quantities of ozone, but reliability is always a problem. An improved variation is called dual

dielectric, used for medical purposes, but long term reliability is again problematic, due to shorting from the cathode to

the metal anode.

Cold plasma is a technique invented by Nikola Tesla whereby noble gases are enclosed in a glass vacuum tube and high voltage

is applied. This is where the future lies for medical applications, because a clean flow of 50 ug/ml is obtainable from this

technology with very long-term reliability. The original Tesla generators of the 1920s still operate perfectly today.

Different uses of ozone require different concentrations to obtain desired results. UV generated ozone is adequate for small

pools, but larger pools, water parks and municipal water treatment require corona discharge to generate large quantities of

ozone. It is important to deal with people who are familiar with the specific applications of ozone in order that systems are

designed to address the problem of each individual installation.

Water engineers use a value called CT (concentration x time) to measure the amount of work done by an oxidant. It is

important to consider the time factor when using ozone, especially when there is a large amount of undesirable material to be

oxidized. Insufficient time of contact or too low a concentration will produce incomplete results.

FREE RADICALS, OZONE (therapeutic ozone) AND ANTIOXIDANTS – Dr. Horst Kief 


As with everything on our planet, both oxygen and antioxidants have two sides, the positive and the negative. On one side,

free radicals will age us quicker; on the other side, without them we have no immune system. It is not well known that oxygen

is bound to our hemoglobin as a superoxide anion, so the oxygen in our breathing process is already there as a radical.

It is the same with antioxidants. Antioxidants are often prescribed to be taken along with the use of ozone. These are not

simply opposites that cancel each other out, but rather, a thoughtful optimization, since most antioxidants have very

specific tasks. Vitamin E is active at the cell membrane. Vitamin C is itself a radical that can speed the electron flow

through oxidation. If ozone is taken for a long time at a high dose, it is wise to take Vitamin A as a preventive measure to

prevent the problems of Vitamin A deficiency.

In summary, both effects have their function and their place in a symbiotic relationship.


The different modes of action of ozone on a living organism are now well understood. The production of peroxides is

responsible for the remarkable bactericidal and fungicidal effects of ozone. The virus inactivation is enhanced by a peroxide

intolerance of weakened infected cells. Normal cells are protected from the effects of ozone by enzymes in the cell wall –

glutathione peroxidase, catalase and superoxide dismutase. Ozone stimulates the production of these enzymes, thus enhancing

the cell wall resistance to invasion.

In addition, ozone has been shown to have a measurable benefit on the uptake and utilization of oxygen with improved

glycolysis in red blood cells through the abolition of harmful red blood cell stacking (rouleaux). In addition, ozone

stimulates and activates mitochondrial respiration and metabolic pathways.

All mammalian tissues depend for their survival and health on an adequate oxygen uptake and therefore ozone would benefit

every person through optimizing tissue oxygenation. Thus ozone has a preventative as well as remedial role. The application

for prevention would include increasing longevity, enhancing performance, rejuvenating seniors, optimizing the healing of

wounds, and stimulating immunity.

Ozone’s therapeutic remedial uses are extensive and growing daily. All bacterial, viral and fungal infections are eliminated

by ozone therapy. Heart disease, angina, arteriosclerosis, gangrene, senile dementia, ulcers, varicose veins, arthritis,

ankylosing spondylitis, diabetes, all forms of cancer, Parkinson’s disease, inflammatory bowel disease, immune deficiency,

allergies and asthma are just a few of the conditions that are regularly treated with ozone.

Ozone combines extremely well with intravenous chelation therapy which is used to treat arterial disease and heavy metal


The therapeutic use of ozone has an excellent safety record and no toxic effects have been observed from clinical use. The

use of ozone as a healing adjunct is well established and is being vigorously pursued by many scientists and clinicians. The

benefits are predictable and without side effects. As technology advances, undoubtedly new techniques will enlarge the scope

of the effective use of this versatile modality.

(Medical ozone) OZONE AND THE FUTURE OF PREVENTION – Byrun F. Tylor 


Ozone has recently become the treatment of choice by progressive doctors for serious diseases, such as cancer, diabetes, and

immune deficiencies. With a series of ozone injections, or ozone steam sauna treatments, coupled with exercise, dietary

changes, emotional counseling, various cleanses and herbal remedies, great strides have been made in dealing with many of the

most serious diseases.

Unfortunately, less attention has been paid to the use of ozone for prevention of diseases. However, the increasing financial

instability of our Medicare system may soon force the issue. As Canada drifts closer to the American style system of

user-pay, Canadians will increasingly consider preventive health measures in order to lower their own personal costs.

This is where ozone can help in the home. Taken on a regular basis in drinking water, in the ear, by insufflation, or in an

ozone steam sauna, ozone safely cleanses bodily fluids of stored toxins, bacteria, yeasts, fungi and viruses. Cleaning the

body in this way and keeping it clean over the years will go a long way towards optimizing health and preventing both

degenerative diseases and also communicable diseases. This will end the need for vaccination and inoculation, with their

appalling tendency to cause the diseases they were meant to prevent. There will also be no need for antibiotics and

tranquilizers, with their damaging side effects and mixed results.

There will be no reason to fear epidemics of meningitis, fleas-eating strep bacteria, toxoplasmosis, hamburger disease, Ebola

virus, Hanta virus, etc., that are trumpeted by the media. And, of course, no reason to pay any attention to the endless

cancer scare stories.

In the future, it is our hope that ozone will routinely treat and prevent all of these diseases. When the public becomes

aware of its power, then prevention will become the watchword, and the general health of Canadians will improve while costs

plummet. This is the future of prevention.

CALCIUM, VITAMIN D and CANCER – Dr. K.W. Donsbach, DC, ND, PhD (ozone medicine)

CALCIUM, VITAMIN D and CANCER – Dr. K.W. Donsbach, DC, ND, PhD

Calcium is primarily deposited in the hard tissue structures of the body, namely the bones and the teeth, which contain over 1,000,000 mg of calcium. A considerable amount of calcium is also found in the lymphatic tissue, between the cells. Only 200mg of the body’s total calcium is found in the blood stream. But this minute amount is so important for life that elaborate measures are taken to make sure that it is always present, for calcium is used to fire the muscles, including the heart.

Calcium requires vitamin D in order to be absorbed through the wall of the intestine. When the level of calcium in the blood drops, extra Vitamin D is mobilized in the kidneys and rushed to the abdominal wall to pull more calcium into the blood stream. If there is insufficient Vitamin D available to ensure calcium can be obtained by absorption, the parathyroid gland kicks in with the hormone (PTH) message to the bones and teeth to give up calcium for the blood.

The overwhelming majority of non-bone calcium is in the extra-cellular fluid at a ratio of 10,000:1 (with the 1 being inside the cell). This ratio is so critical that even small calcium level variations in the cell will produce gross changes, such as abnormal movement of the cell, extra-excitability of the cell, and worst of all, abnormal cell division.  An inadequate intake of calcium, which could result from dietary deficiency of either calcium or Vitamin D, will cause the parathyroids to signal the bones to give up calcium. Now comes what is referred to as the “calcium paradox”. The extra amounts of calcium which flood out of the bone when stimulated by PTH often overshoot the amount needed by the blood. An excess of calcium in the blood is just as serious a threat to life as too little. Therefore, when the normal calcium level is reached, any excess is quickly deposited in soft tissues such as the lining of arteries (arteriosclerosis); brain tissue (premature senility); and into joints (arthritis).

But it is the disturbance of the delicate balance of calcium inside and outside the cell that really produces problems. When even a tiny amount of excess calcium enters a cell and changes the 10,000:1 outside:inside ratio, the cell’s “imbalance of calcium” signal erupts, which can create a life-threatening disease, called cancer.
