What is medical ozone?

According to the FDA, ozone is a toxic substance with NO KNOWN MEDICAL BENEFIT TO ANIMALS OR HUMANS.  The members of the AMA (American Medical Association), that is, all medical doctors in the USA, are forbidden to use medical ozone in their practice.  Those who use it risk losing their license. Some of them even ended up in jail during the last few decades.  Despite of these draconian rules, there are a handful of outspoken physicians who are using this modality, and are very successful with it.  However, you would be hard pressed to find a single doctor in the USA who knows anything about the subject, unless you knew where to find them. (At the bottom of this report you'll find a list of them.)

Ozone therapy against cancer and infectious diseases is being used on a daily basis by Canadian naturopathic physicians in 5 major provinces. It is also being used by medical doctors all over Europe and Asia. There are hundreds of reputable international cancer clinics where ozone therapy is part of their basic protocol.

Considering the enormity of the deception perpetrated by the FDA and the AMA, and the degree of ignorance among medical doctors concerning this vitally important modality, it shouldn't come as a surprise that out of 800 thousand medical doctors and tens of thousands of oncologists in the United States, only a few dozen couragous physicians are offering ozone treatments.

In 1994 we sent out letters to all state health commissioners requesting information on ozone therapy.  Here are some excerpts from their answering letters.  The original letters are in our files.

From the Texas Department of Health, signed by David R. Smith, M.D., Commissioner of Health.

"We do not have knowledge of any valid, scientific basis for claims concerning medical ozone."  

From The Commonwealth of Massachusetts, signed by Alfred DeMaria, Jr., M.D., Assistant Commissioner of Public Health, State Epidemiologist, Director, Bureau oc Communicable Disease Control.

"We have no information regarding medical ozone in the treatment of any disease."

From the American Medical Association, signed by John J. Henning, no medical degree and no organizational position indicated.

"I know of no clinical trials to show that it (ozone) has any efficacy..."

From the Kanahwa-Cherleston Health Department, signed by Donald M. Rosenberg, M.D., Health Officer.

"... please be advised that I am not aware of any treatment modality ... that utilizes medical ozone."

From the State of Florida Department of Health, signed by Charles S. Mahan, M.D., State Health Officer.

"There apparently have been some fraudulent claims for ozone therapy which have been prosecuted in Florida by the FDA.  Unfortunately, the ultimate hopelessness usually attributed to the diagnosis of HIV infection leaves those so infected particularly vulnerable to such schemes."

All other state officials from the other states answered in a similar fashion.

As a result of this medical iron curtain policy, thousands of Americans who can afford it, travel every year to Europe and to other off-shore clinics to be successfully treated there by this 'non-existent' modality.  Please note that the above quotes are not from ordinary doctors, but from state health officials on whose medical knowledge the health of millions depends.   

More than a decade ago hundreds of doctors in the United States began experimenting with medical ozone therapy to help AIDS patients.   Many of them traveled to Europe to learn from their European colleagues, who have achieved remarkable results in the past few decades.  The AMA and the FDA quickly suppressed this trend, and some of the doctors were jailed for their efforts.  Dr. Carpendale was a senior resident physician at the San Francisco Veterans Hospital, when, during the 1980s, he began to treat some HIV positive patients with ozone. Here is a link to one of his several scientific papers he presented to the FDA and to the scientific community.  Although the study is specifically concerned with AIDS, not with cancer, it serves well the purpose of demonstrating the lunacy of the official medical policy regarding medical ozone. This paper is one of thousands of clinical reports available on the subject of medical ozone therapy, practiced in Europe, Asia, and Latin America.  It has been presented to the Eleventh Ozone World Congress, August 29 - September 3, 1993, San Francisco, together with many other research papers and clinical reports from leading medical ozone experts from around the world.

How can this information affect your condition, and how can it help you?  

Medical ozone is an important tool in an anti-cancer protocol.  All reputable international private cancer clinics use it.  This doesn't mean that if you have no access to ozone therapy, you will not be able to recover.  However, if you select a treatment protocol or clinic where ozone therapy is part of the course, you can be certain that ozone will greatly help you in your healing efforts.  In case of an inoperable tumor, some doctors inject ozone directly into the tumor. This method saved many lives.  If you suffer from a weakened condition, and succumb to viral or bacterial  infections, according to alternative experts the fastest and most aggressive treatment is ozone.  For systemic infections and cancer the preferred procedure is major auto-hemotherapy, where a small amount of blood is led out from one arm, it is ozonated, then led back through the same arm. This treatment is completely safe, painless, and very effective, according to practitioners and patients I (the author of this website) had the opportunity to interview. My own life-threatening systemic infection has been cured by a series of ozone autohemotherapy sessions about 5 years ago.

dear Gabe 

I am dr. Frank Pegolo specialized physician in angiology and I use the
oxygen ozone therapy from ca. 6 years. I have studied in the university of Bologna and i have done my specializzation in the university of Milano after i have attended at several master in Eco Color Doppler at Scripps Clinic and Research Foundation of S. Diego , now every 6 - 8 month i visit the Cedar Cinai
Medical Center of Los Angeles where i am best friend of the inside patient director prof. Tom Rosendhal. I with my collaborators have done different researches on the oxygen ozone therapy and the peripheral arterial occlusive diseases, I will be one of the collaborators of the world conference of oxygen ozone therapy that will unwind the next year in Italy. My office is situated in Sacile, town of the north east Italy just 80 km east of Venice.
My main work is ultrasound scanning ( Acuson equippment with color
doppler and power doppler energy ) , so after recognize the pathology i
always treat my patients with ozone because is really more stong of any
other pharmaceutical system. In the last 5 years I have used greatly the oxygen ozone therapy prevalently for the peripheral arterial disease , decubitus ulcers ,
chronic ulcers , venous diseases , hepatitis C , herpes zoster , rheumatic diseases and lumbar protrusion.

Mostly I use the big autohemotrasfusion with 4000 - 7000 ( for hepatitis) microgr. di ozono. In the last years I have done more than 4500 autohemotrasfusion, I have not gotten collateral effects and in the 95% of the patients they have gotten amazing results.  I am one of the medical angiologist of the northern east of Italy that mostly use this metodic because exempt totally from collateral effects.

The use of oxygen ozone therapy base prevalently on 3 effects:

1) direct disinfectant action antivirus and antibacterial . To systemic
level this happen because the transformation of peroxides.

2 ) emoreologic action on the red globules .

3 ) Stimulating action of production from the red globules of 2-3
difosfogligerate responsible of the transfer of O2 to the tessute.

The metabolic Action on the red globules determining:

a) increased use of sugar
b) division of the fat acids
c) activation of enzymes that stoping the peroxides and the free

Well i will be very happy to hold lesson ( theoretical and practical )
in the use of O2 - O3 to physician in north America .

Keep in touch and ciao .
dott. Frank Pegolo

It is incredible that in USA the most advanced country in the world for
medicine , O2 -O3 is not legal , here in Europe in all state there is .
In my University Of Bologna ( the first university in the World 900
years ! ) there is also a particular master on O2 - O3 . I have so many
patients so happy and so enthusiastic about the effect of O2- O3.
I think that in USA the problem are the chemical industries (farmaceutical ) with ozone there is an incredible decrease of use of prescription !
see you
dr. Frank Pegolo

From Dr. Peter Bennett's HELIOS CLINIC (excerpt from his letter), British Columbia, Canada:

"Helios Clinic uses ozone therapy as a primary intervention for certain types of neoplastic and metastatic (cancer and metastasized cancer) disease.  The preferred route of delivery is usually autohemotherapy but local tumor injection is indicated in certain cases."

From Dr. Robert E. Willner, MD:

"Ozone therapy is one of the most powerful and versatile therapies known today. Extensive medical research on ozone therapy has been done primarily in Europe. Through its mechanism of action, ozone has beneficial effects on every part of the body. The effects include:

Dissolution of malignant tumors: Malignant cells have an increased rate of glycolysis which leads to the production of more lactate. With ozone therapy, there is a significant decrease in lactate production, showing that the metabolism is being inhibited Tumor cells have a peroxide intolerance due to insufficient peroxidase and catalase. Ozone is thus able to oxidize the outer lipid layer of malignant cells and destroy them through cell lysis."

From Natural Solutions Radio, dated October 16, 2003:
"With ozone cancerous tumors, lymphomas and leukemia may be eliminated without the use of surgery, radiation or chemotherapy."

Dr. George Freibott, ND, MD:
"Ozone is highly effective with all forms of cancer."

Dr. Kurt Donsbach, Ph.D.:
"Cancer begins when a normal cell cannot get enough oxygen. If the level of oxygen available falls below 40%, in order to survive, the cell will begin to ferment sugar instead of burn it. This process is irreversible, and results in an energy output only 1/6 as great as oxidation. The cell then lacks the energy to manufacture a proper enzyme coating around itself. The governor on cell replication is switched off, and the cell can begin to make copies of itself wildly. This ungoverned cell replication is called cancer.

When ozone is introduced into the area, it immediately attacks the unhealthy cells because they lack a proper enzyme coating. Healthy cells are untouched. If sufficient ozone is administered over time, the tumor will be dissolved."

Further comments on the role of ozone therapy in your selection of treatments can be found at the TREATMENT COMBINATIONS page. 

Here are several links to websites where medical ozone practitioners are listed. Please note that these are mixed lists, not every doctor listed offers ozone treatment. Also, because of the very nature of the treatment, some practitioners or clinics may not be anymore in operation. It is impossible to keep the lists up-to-date, as they are changing all the time. The only practical method is to contact the individual clinics to see if they are still active.
