So You're Thinking About Trying Ozone
by David Sterling
So you're thinking about trying ozone therapy! It is important to know what you are getting yourself into. Ozone is not a silver bullet. Ozone is part of a whole lifestyle change. If you don't think that you can commit yourself to change, then don't. Change requires time, effort and patience. It is not something that will come and go in a matter of months. The basic premise is that you are cleaning out the toxic wastes that your body has been storing which are providing an environment the encourages growth of pathogens and suppresses the immune system. It will take time and effort to clean up the situation.
What are you trying to accomplish in doing ozone therapy? Take a moment and analyze your life. What types of food do you eat? Do you smoke and drink? Are you taking any drugs, either prescription or non-prescription? Have you had chemotherapy or radiation or metal poisoning in your lifetime? These are all factors to be considered.
The body is 2/3 water. How dirty this water is depends on how you have run your life. The more junk food you've eaten; the more you've smoked and drank; the more drugs you've put into your body; the more toxic you are. The more toxic you are, the longer it will take ozone to do it's job. You are going to have to make some lifestyle changes. The healthier you eat, the better off you are going to be. Test your saliva pH with a test strip from the health food store. It should read 6.3 - 6.4. Care must be taken to ensure a balanced diet. There are many good books on the subject
Eat plenty of fresh raw vegetables and fruit. Wash them first in 3% hydrogen peroxide. Drink 8 glasses of clean, mineralized water every day. Spend 15 minutes in the sun every day. Supplement your diet with yogurt, brewer's yeast tablets, halibut liver oil, and vitamin C.
If you smoke and drink, stop. If you use non-prescription drugs, stop. Examine your prescribed drugs as well. Antibiotics are bad for your system. Over time, they suppress the immune system and destroy the vital beneficial bacteria. Ozone will substitute for these products, while stimulating your immune system to its highest potency.
You must also stop burning the candle at both ends. The body needs its proper rest periods. If you're not prepared to institute these changes, then don't attempt ozone.
Do not drink tap water. Either buy bottled water cleaned with ozone, or purchase a reverse osmosis unit. Attach a good filter to your shower head to eliminate the toxic chlorine from you shower/bathing water. Use 8 ounces of 35% food grade peroxide in a full tub of warm unchlorinated water, and soak 30 minutes.
If you have decided ozone is the way to go, there are some things you should think about. A good set-up will cost you about $2,500. This includes the price of an ozone generator, an oxygen tank and regulator. After the initial outlay, you can expect to go through about $20 worth of oxygen per month. For IV injections, you must use oxygen from a tank only. For other treatments, such as the steam sauna, an oxygen concentrator works well, if the flow rate can be set low enough.
You will have to set aside time for yourself to do the ozone therapy. It takes time and dedication. If you are going to do rectal insufflation, you must do an enema before each in order to clean the colon. It is necessary to have regular bowel movements, to ensure that toxins are not reabsorbed.
Do not expect to feel good for a while. As ozone starts to do it's job, you may experience one or more of the following: unusual fatigue; fever; night sweats; diarrhea; nausea. Ozone will generally force toxins out of the body the way they were put in. The more toxic your body is, the stronger these reactions will be. This initial detoxification process could last from several weeks to several months. Do not despair, you will eventually feel better. You can expect to see results, but only if you're committed to the program.
It will not be easy, but you will see results. After the initial detoxification, you should go on a maintenance program. This will also be dependent on the individual person. Ozone may always be a part of your new healthy lifestyle, protecting you from toxic buildup and resultant disease in the future.
