I think Brian should concentrate more on fact than mere speculation regarding alternative forms of health care that has actually saved more lives than they would like to admit. The fact is functional medicine (ozone therapy) is the field of health care which focuses on the prevention, detection and effective treatment of body dysfunctions and nutrient deficiencies. The entire body is treated to enhance the Immune System's efficiency by addressing a person's lifestyle to ensure optimum health!Why this shift?
Drugs are used to treat the symptoms of a medical condition or ailment. These symptoms are often the early warning signals of the body indicating that something is wrong! These symptoms can include headaches, nausea, back and joint pain, fatigue, memory loss, digestive and elimination disorders, allergies, dizziness, sleep disorders, stress (80% of all human illnesses are stress related), to name but a few! In addition to only treating the symptoms these allopathic drugs (all types of chemical medication)causes unpleasant (and dangerous) side effects (Look up "New Health Revelations")
According to the 1988 Surgeon General's Report On Nutrition and Health, 68% of all the deaths that occur in the Untied States each year are due to nutrition related diseases. However, a recent graduate from the University of Iowa Medical School complained that during their entire 7-year medical curriculum, medical students do not receive even 1 hour of study in nutrition!Is Mainstream Medicine Missing the Mark?
Medical care is not bad..... For traumatic injuries and other life-threatening emergencies, it is the best thing going. All too often it is just not appropriate or effective
In an article (publishes in the New England Journal of Medicine) the Chief of Staff at the Johns Hopkins School of Medicine reported:
- The medical therapies they teach their medical students are appropriate for only 2% of the population and in addition to this, 80% of these therapies are still experimental! Further statistics reveal that 80% of people who go to M.D's do not get better at all...... Only 11% shows improvement and 9% actually get worse.
This is startling seen in the light of the fact that the Placebo Effect is considered to be better than 30%! The Placebo Effect is simply a means whereby suggestions works better. A patient is given a sugar pill and told it will help them..... In a case such as this there is a reported 30% improvement rate as opposed to 11%!
Another article in the New England Journal of Medicine reported that the accuracy of traditional medical (allopathic) diagnosis less tan 25%.... this means that more than 75% of the time the medical doctors diagnosis of a disease or condition (that the patient suffers from) was wrong!
More and more people are turning to the holistic approach of healing where their lifestyle is being taken into consideration regarding stress, diet, nutrition, exercise, environmental factors, etc.
The general public have become dissatisfied with taking drugs and medication (which only cover up the symptoms in stead of addressing the underlying cause of their medical condition or ailment!)
Evidence of this shift (from allopathic drugs to natural remedies) was reported in a study done by Harvard University (published in the New England Journal of Medicine) which showed that during 1990 there were 38 million more visits to alternative and holistic health practitioners than to regular medical doctors (at an average age fee of R100.00, this means that regular doctors in the USA lost +/- R3.8 Billion in consultation fees alone!)(Research Done by - Dr. Kevin Mackay)
Numerous medical scientists and researchers have proved this OVER and OVER and today that believe that most diseases are caused due to a lack of oxygen in the body! In 1926 two time Nobel Prize Winner for Medicine, Dr Otto Warburg of the Kaizer Institute in Berlin, announced to the world his findings on his research on oxygen and cancer in the human body.THE CAUSE OF ALL CANCER IS THE LACK OF OXYGEN AT A CELLULAR LEVEL IN THE BODY!
Supercharged oxygen (Ozone) has the ability to prevent cancer. If sufficient oxygen is provided to the cells so that it never drops below 40% the cells will stay healthy. This will bar the need for chemical or radiation poisoning. It is as simple (and difficult) as that. Many people today are using ozone generators to keep their cellular oxygen levels high in order to prevent disease.What is ozone?
Ozone is a trivalent active form of oxygen. Simply put it is SUPERCHARGED OXYGEN!
Whereas oxygen (O2) has only 2 atoms per molecule, ozone (O3) has 3 atoms per moleculeOzone therapy is the safest therapy ever!
In the history of Ozone only 40 cases of side effects and 4 cases of fatality have been recorded. An unbelievable 0.000007%!Major effects of ozone on the human body as reported by Dr Frank Shallenberger:
1. Ozone stimulates the production of white blood cells
2. Interferon levels are significantly increased.
3. Ozone stimulates the production of Tumour Necrosis Factor
4. Ozone stimulates the secretion of IL-2
5. Ozone kills most bacteria at low concentrations
6. Ozone is effective against all types of fungi
7. Ozone fights viruses in a variety of ways
8. Ozone is anti-Neoplastic
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 oxidises arterial plaque
10. Ozone increases the flexibility and elasticity of red blood cells
11. ozone accelerates the Citric Acid Cycle
12. Ozone makes the anti-oxidant enzyme system more efficient
13. Ozone degrades petrochemicals
These chemicals have the potential to place a great burden on the immune system. They also worsen and even cause allergies and are detrimental to our long-term health.The bottom line is that Ozone Therapy, handled properly, is a simple, safe and effective method to aid in the healing of the body!
