The Story of Ozone
17: Ozone Therapy and Atheletes





  • Increases tissue oxygenation
  • Increases production of ATP, resulting in more energy and faster recovery
  • Delays the onset of anerobic fermentation of sugar in the cell, reducing lactic acid buildup
  • Oxidizes lactic acid, helping prevent sore muscles
  • Reduces swelling, bruising, and pain from injuries and speeds healing
  • Prevents and treats colds and flu and builds up immunity
  • Eliminates need for antibiotics, protecting intestinal flora
  • Increases hormone production to optimum levels, eliminating need for artificial steroids


Recently, there has been wide dissemination of information about the purported dangers of free radicals, which are being blamed for all the ills that mankind is subject to, from aging to heart attacks to cancer.

Free radicals are atoms with unpaired electrons, a natural occurrence in biochemical reactions. There could be no chemical reactions and thus no life without free radicals. The properties of free radicals vary widely. Some are toxic to all living cells, others only to the most vulnerable cells. Singlet oxygen, O1 is a highly reactive, beneficial free radical that acts as a scavenger of other harmful free radicals. The oxygen combines with some of them to render them harmless, thereby protecting cells from damage. Healthy cells produce enzymes that protect them from oxidation. These enzymes are glutathione peroxidase, super-oxide dismutase, catalase, and reductase. Bacteria and viruses have no such enzyme
protection and are therefore oxidized. By this elegant mechanism, ozone distinguishes between friends and foes and attacks only toxins, pathogens, and cells that have been damaged, weakened and infected.

The anti-oxidant products are gaining in popularity as nutritional supplements due to vigorous promotion. They are really free radical scavengers and enzyme enhancers. They have been shown to help protect marginally healthy cells from free radical damage. Superoxide dismutase in particular has helped reduce a variety of disorders; normally it is among the body's most plentiful enzymes. Prolonged use of supplementary enzymes could tend to atrophy the body's ability to make these enzymes. In any case, it does not address the cause of the problem: oxygen starvation at the cellular level, which causes the cells to be too weak to make the enzymes that protect them; and toxins which prevent the free radical scavenging enzymes from doing their job.

The psychological consequence of attempting to convince people that their bodies are under constant attack is detrimental to good health. The limbic system, or midbrain, controls both the emotions and the immune system. We must never engender fear with terrorism regarding health, as is so often done by the media with their periodic waves of 'carcinogen panic' and 'free radical scares'. As Dr. Warburg stated clearly in 1966, this approach is detrimental to public health.

Medical ozone is completely safe and non-toxic to humans when generated by proper non-contaminating equipment and administered with proper protocols. As Prof. Halliwell has written, there has never been any proof that ozone causes free radical damage to the body. It has been shown to be completely safe even when a dosage many times greater than the proposed human dosage is administered.

Ozone therapy may produce temporary discomfort (as when it induces the desirable healing crisis), but never permanent harm. 125 years of usage on millions of people have proven this.
