Effects of Ozone On The Human Body
as reported by Dr. Frank
Considered one of the leading authorities on medical ozone,
Dr. Shallenberger has done important work to support the hypothesis that ozone can have
long-term positive effects on AIDS. He has also conducted workshops on the proper
application of medical ozone at an International Ozone Symposium in Texas. He successfully
treats patients with medical ozone via Major Autohemotherapy. The thirteen physiological
effects are list below and are accompanied by a brief explanation.
1. Ozone stimulates the production of
white blood cells. These cells protect the body from viruses, bacteria, fungi and cancer.
Deprived of oxygen, these cells malfunction. They fail to eliminate invaders and even turn
against normal, healthy cells (allergic reactions). Ozone significantly raises the oxygen
levels in the blood for long periods after ozone administration; as a result, allergies
have a tendency to become desensitized.
2. Interferon levels are significantly increased. Interferons are
globular proteins. Interferons orchestrate every aspect of the immune system. Some
interferons are produced by cells infected by viruses. These interferons warn adjacent,
healthy cells of the likelihood of infection; in turn, they are rendered nonpermissive
host cells. In other words, they inhibit viral replication. Other interferons are produced
in the muscles, connective tissue and by white blood cells. Levels of gamma interferon can
be elevated 400-900% by ozone. This interferon is involved in the control of phagocytic
cells that engulf and kill pathogens and abnormal cells. Interferons are FDA approved for
the treatment of Chronic Hepatitis B and C, Genital Warts (caused by Papillomavirus,
Hairy-cell Leukemia, Karposis Sarcoma, Relapsing-Remitting Multiple Sclerosis and
Chronic Granulomatous Disease. Interferons are currently in clinical trials for Throat
Warts (caused by Papillomavirus), HIV infection, Chronic Myelogenous Leukemia Leukemia,
Non-Hodgkins Lymphoma, Colon tumors, Kidney tumors, Bladder Cancer, Malignant Melanoma,
Basal Cell Carcinoma and Leishmaniasis. While levels induced by ozone remain safe,
interferon levels that are FDA appoved (and in clinical trials) are extremely toxic.
3. Ozone stimulates the production of Tumor Necrosis Factor. TNF is
produced by the body when a tumor is growing. The greater the mass of the tumor the more
tumor necrosis factor is produced (up to a point). When a tumor has turned metastatic,
cancer cells are breaking off and being carried away by the blood and lymph. This allows
the tumor to take up residence elsewhere in the body; or in other words, divide its
forces. These lone cancer cells have little chance of growing due to the TNF produced to
inhibit the original tumor. When the tumor is removed surgically TNF levels drop
dramatically and new tumors emerge from seemingly healthy tissue.
4. Ozone stimulates the secretion of IL-2. Interluekin-2 is one of the
cornerstones of the immune system. It is secreted by T-helpers. In a process known as
autostimulation, the IL-2 then binds to a receptor on the T-helper and causes it to
produce more IL-2. Its main duty is to induce lymphocytes to differentiate and
proliferate, yielding more T-helpers, T-suppressors, cytotoxic Ts, T-delayeds
and T-memory cells.
5. Ozone kills most bacteria at low concentrations. The metabolism of
most bacteria is on average one-seventeenth as efficient as our own. Because of this, most
cannot afford to produce disposable anti-oxidant enzymes such as catalase. Very few types
of bacteria can live in an environment composed of more than two percent ozone.
6. Ozone is effective against all types of fungi. This includes
systemic Candida albicans, athletes foot, molds, mildews, yeasts and even mushrooms.
7. Ozone fights viruses in a variety of ways. As discussed above, ozone
also goes after the viral particles directly. The part of the virus most sensitive to
oxidation is the reproductive structure. This is how the virions enter the
cell. With this structure inactivated, the virus is essentially dead. Cells
already infected have a natural weakness to ozone. Due to the metabolic burden of the
infection the cells can no longer produce the enzymes necessary to deal with the ozone and
repair the cell.
8. Ozone is antineoplastic. This means that ozone inhibits the growth
of new tissue because rapidly dividing cells shift their priorities away from producing
the enzymes needed to protect themselves from the ozone. Cancer cells are rapidly dividing
cells and are inhibited by ozone.
9. Ozone oxidizes arterial plaque. It breaks down the nnnn plaque
involved in both Arteriosclerosis and Arthrosclerosis. This means ozone has a tendency to
clear blockages of large and even smaller vessels. This allows for better tissue
oxygenation in deficient organs.
10. Ozone increases the flexibility and elasticity of red blood cells.
When one views a red blood cell under a microscope, it looks like a disc. In the
capillaries, where they pick-up (lungs) and release (tissue) oxygen, these discs stretch
out into the shape of an oval or umbrella. This aids their passage through the tiny
vessels and makes the exchange of gas more efficient. The increase in flexibility of the
RBCs allows oxygen levels to stay elevated for days, even weeks after treatment with
11. Ozone accelerates the Citric Acid Cycle. Also known as the
Krebs Cycle or TCA Cycle, this is a very important step in the glycolisis of
carbohydrate for energy. This takes place in the mitochonria of the cell. Most of the
energy stored in glucose (sugar) is converted in this pathway.
12. Ozone makes the anti-oxidant enzyme system more efficient.
13. Ozone degrades petrochemicals. These chemicals have a potential to
place a great burden on the immune system. They also worsen and even cause allergies and
are detrimental to your long-term health.
