In the 1930s, a German biochemist named Dr. Otto Warburg made the revolutionary discovery that due to the low rate of respiration in cancer cells, they are capable of fermenting their own sugar and thus starving the oxygen cells so much that they replicate uncontrollably. He theorized that an increase in blood oxygen levels could potentially slow the replication of cancer cells, or even kill them.
This information was startling to many in the medical field, but decades later, physicians and biochemists are now aware that oxygen alone is not enough to stop the metastasis of cancerous cells in their tracks. However, Dr. Warburg's early discovery helped encourage proponents of an alternative form of therapy called ozone therapy, which has been practiced in many cultures worldwide throughout history—not just to eliminate cancer cells, but other ailments too, including AIDS, herpes, and cirrhosis of the liver.
The core belief of ozone therapy advocates is that the introduction of a mixture of ozone gas and air into a patient's body can slow the replication of cells. Although ozone therapy can be practiced in several different ways, the most commonly known method is autohemotherapy.
During autohemotherapy, a physician draws blood from the patient, mixes it with ozone, and introduces it back into the bloodstream. Physicians extracting and re-releasing ozone-infused blood into the patient's body must do so cautiously; studies by the American Cancer Society have indicated that oxygen-releasing agents can be harmful to the body, but those in favor of alternative therapies such as ozone therapy have found the process to be perfectly safe when done properly.
A more relatively innovative method is when ozone is inject directly into the blood stream, thereby creating a quicker and more sustainable therapy for the patient. There are no known adverse reactions to this practice.
Ozone therapy can be as effective as traditional treatments for diseases, particularly those involving the vascular system. Additionally, proponents of ozone therapy recognize that while the process can take anywhere from several weeks up to several months, very few or no negative side effects have been observed.
The therapy is seemingly most beneficial when a tumor is accessible and can easily be injected with a needle filled with oxygen. Regardless, the benefits of this type of treatment have been noted in numerous cultures, and it seems likely that in the near future, empirical biological and clinical tests will confirm the positive impact of ozone therapy in traditional Western medicine.
