The Common Problem with Low Oxygen and How Ozone Provides a Solution
By Eileen Durfee, N.C.
Inflammation, stress, diabetes, and cancer – these are just some of the health conditions that are commonly found today. Nearly everyone deals with variations of health issues during their lives, whether they are directly affected themselves, or know a friend or family member who suffers. It does not help that humans continue to contaminate their insides with corrupted food sources. Many people want to try to eat healthy, but pesticides, parasites, bacteria and viruses found among fresh produce, for example, can make otherwise nutritious food harmful. These contaminants need to be removed from food before human consumption if there is any hope to restore or maintain optimal health.
Additional health symptoms many people face include poor circulation and dealing with cold hands and feet. They hardly sweat and have trouble getting warm. These symptoms are often attributed to the body’s inability to generate a sufficient amount of energy due to lack of oxygen, among other reasons. However, oxygen is critical to assist the body’s energy production so it can function at an optimal level. It is unfortunate that people have evolved with the earth’s atmosphere gradually reducing in oxygen levels; thus, limiting the human body’s potential to lead a healthy life. Many people in an oxygen compromised state cannot keep oxygen contained in their bodies long enough for it to do its job. This causes the body to shut down – the organs, circulatory system, and brain all have trouble functioning properly. Increasing oxygen allows the body to function at a higher level.
The presence of oxygen is also necessary for the body to operate at a high enough efficiency to reduce toxins on a regular basis. Otherwise, these toxins will be harbored in the body, stuck in tissues such as liver, and lead to problems such as congestion and trouble with digestion. When a body lacks sufficient oxygen, it becomes toxic and the frequency of normal functions decline, leading to a compromised immune system and heightened inflammation. Many people are in a state of adaptation, where the body has partially shut down a variety of operations in order to survive on minimum oxygen levels. The lack of oxygen and accumulation of toxins is a vicious cycle, where toxins accumulated from a variety of sources (air, food, exposure, etc.), increase the body’s need for oxygen and decrease the oxygen levels.
These themes of health conditions, damaged food sources, and lack of oxygen pose a real problem today. People seek answers in this ever contaminated world. It is important to reduce the accumulation of toxins and naturally increase their elimination from the body to bring back a healthy homeostatic balance. Ozone generators offer an excellent solution for you to make and drink ozonated water, which releases oxygen inside the body.
What exactly is ozone and how can it be used as a solution?
Ozone is an active state of oxygen that is made up of three oxygen atoms. When ozonated water is consumed, it allows the body to boost its oxygen metabolism. This is a fascinating benefit, as the intake of oxygen produces energy, and is an essential part of human life. An optimal level of oxygen is critical to lead a healthy life and maintain the body’s elimination process.
Just as oxygen increases the fuel of a fire, the potential of the body’s fuel is not recognized unless oxygen levels are at their optimal level. When oxygen is present, the body has a stronger ability to use the nutrients taken in from food and supplement sources.
Ozone kills contaminants in food.
Ozone has the power to quickly kill bacteria and viruses that are commonly found in food and water. It produces a strong sanitizing and oxidizing effect, and leaves no toxic residue behind. The only by-product of cleaning food with ozonated water is oxygen.
The benefits of ozone
Ozone is considered an integral detoxification procedure of Nutritional Balancing Science due to its many benefits. These benefits can date back to the mid-1800’s, when ozone was used as a medical tool. In operating rooms, ozone was used to help sterilize. Ozone was later selected as a remedy for many different types of illnesses, including tuberculosis.
Ozone therapy and ozone generators are still commonly used by physicians in Europe, Asia and other countries around the world; however, it is unapproved for medical treatment in the United States of America. Ozone continues to gain an increase in interest among the medical community today, due to an abundance of scientific research studies. The basis of ozone and how it can produce positive benefits is now documented. Research resulted in the use of ozone therapy for many health conditions that relate to inflammation, cancer, diabetes, and more. The reason ozone is considered so beneficial is because of the break down and elimination of toxic compounds through the oxidation process. It has the capability to destroy fungus and microorganisms, which makes it a fantastic oxidizing agent.
Examples of ozone use in modern medicine
Dr. Dean Lloyd, who is a board certified acupuncturist, naturopath, radio show host, author, professor, inventor, and philosopher, spoke about his experience with ozone and the benefits he noticed from it. Dr. Lloyd introduced ozone into his medical practice over 30 years ago. In one instance, he worked with a patient who had a fungal infection on his leg. The patient was told that his condition could not be treated, and was set to have his leg amputated in two weeks. Dr. Lloyd’s team previously used oxygen therapy to saturate the body with a lot of oxygen, and used the same method for this patient. They gave him a gel that was impregnated with ozone and saturated in olive oil. He spread it over his leg twice a day for one week, and when he returned to Dr. Lloyd, a third of the discoloration from the infection on his leg had already cleared up. The patient’s surgeon was amazed at this recovery, and said he had never seen or heard about anything like this in his 25 years of work. The patient’s leg was saved from being amputated with ozone.
Dr. Lloyd also has experience using ozone with patients who are skiers. When they took in oxygen while on the chair lift, by the time they got to the bottom of the hill, they were not even tired and could continue to work and exercise normally.
Increase oxygen levels with ozone
Exercise is a great way to get more oxygen into the body, but with additional oxygen already present from drinking ozonated water, the body’s workload is eased even further during the exercise process. The Creatrix Solutions line of Tri-Oxy water ozonators, or ozone generators, are used to produce ozonated water for drinking. Ideally, ozonating purified water allows for the dissolved ozone to become more effective with the maximum amount of active oxygen. Otherwise, the active oxygen released during the ozone oxidation process is used up as a disinfectant and deactivates a lot of the harmful substances in the source water.
The medical profession pushes oxygenation as something negative when it breaks down healthy tissues during inhalation, but anything can cause harm when used in excess. The goal of drinking ozonated water is to introduce oxygen into the body so that the body is able to function closer to ideal and transform dead cells into fresh, healthy cells. When using a purified source water, at room temperature or colder, dissolving ozone in the water is accomplished with the use of a diffuser over time to reach maximum saturation. A diffuser creates small bubbles of ozone gas that mix with the water. The smaller bubbles allow for a larger transfer rate of O3 to occur into the water. Then within about 20 minutes, depending on ph, temperature and total dissolved solids contained in the water, oxygen water levels rise.
As verified by independent lab testing, the Tri-Oxy® FRESH ozone generator, completely saturates 300 ml (10.14 ox) of distilled water in 10 minutes achieving 1.49 ppm of dissolved ozone.
It is always best to drink ozonated water on an empty stomach, and not mix it with food, vitamins, food supplements, minerals, or green super drinks. The main reason for this is that the oxidation power of ozone will break down everything in the stomach and negate the effectiveness of both the ozone and the items that have been consumed at the same time.
When oxygen is taken into the body, the toxic load found within the electrolytes can be reduced. The goal of drinking ozonated water is to activate the oxygen metabolism through the by-product of oxidation where an O1 molecule detaches from O3 creating a molecule of O2, increasing oxygen levels in the body. Oxygen introduced through ozone is very effective at boosting the oxygen metabolism as published in the following study: J Nat Sci Biol Med. 2011 Jan-Jun; 2(1): 66–70 (http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC3312702/)
“Ozone therapy causes an increase in the red blood cell glycolysis rate. This leads to the stimulation of 2,3-diphosphoglycerate which leads to an increase in the amount of oxygen released to the tissues. Ozone activates the Krebs cycle by enhancing oxidative carboxylation of pyruvate, stimulating production of ATP. It also causes a significant reduction in NADH and helps to oxidize cytochrome C. There is a stimulation of production of enzymes which act as free radical scavengers and cell-wall protectors: glutathione peroxidase, catalase and superoxide dismutase. Production of prostacyline, a vasodilator, is also induced by O3.”
Ozone generators provide a valuable tool to increase oxygen levels and oxygen saturation, without exercise. Dissolving ozone into water is one of the safest and quickest way to increase the body’s oxygen levels. Ozone has many beneficial uses, and it is important to note that it is not harmful when used responsibly. A small amount can be inhaled without it being bothersome, but it is an irritant. It is best to turn on an exhaust fan, open a window, or leave the room temporarily while water is being ozonated. Inhaling ozone gas should be avoided to prevent lung irritation and damage. The EPA has published ambient ozone gas guidelines for acceptable exposure levels. A lot of ozone enthusiasts say they love the smell of ozone, but do not realize that too much of a good thing can be harmful. Inhaling too much ozone gas damages lung tissue and increases free radical scavengers in the body. If used properly, such as with the Tri-Oxy® FRESH ozone generator, ozone gas does not become a pollutant. Dr. Lloyd believes safe levels of oxygen allow the body to operate optimally to perform the minimum requirements to achieve a favorable homeostatic balance. Over 80% of his patients who use ozone on a daily basis feel their minds are clearer, their energy levels increase, and they feel all around cleaner inside.
I have used a variety of ozone generators since early 2000, and now design and manufacture the Tri-Oxy® line of ozone generators. The trade name, Tri-Oxy®, represents ozone and the three molecules of oxygen. The Tri-Oxy® line of products was created to provide a fantastic way to integrate ozone into a daily routine. For enhanced detoxification through an increased oxygen metabolism, and to reduce the consumption of contaminates found in our everyday food supply purchase one of our water ozonators today.
There are multiple types of ozone generators for various uses available for purchase. The products are available on www.GoHealthyNext.com for use in the convenience of your own home, and include:
The Tri-Oxy PURE
The Tri-Oxy® PURE is a machine that is plumbed underneath any sink, attached to laundry faucets, or inside of walls on any hot or cold water line. The Tri-Oxy® PURE delivers a flow of ozonated water out of any faucet, hose or sprayer attachment. When the faucet is turned on, the flow of water creates vacuum and turns on the machine to pump ozone gas down a silicone tube into a venturi tee that injects ozone gas under pressure into the water line. When ozone gas is injected under pressure, something wonderful happens. More of the gas dissolves into the water increasing the ozone concentration level to provide instant on demand ozonated water. In cold food storage chemical literature, where ozone gas is used routinely, they have published kill rates for a variety of common pathogens. They indicate that it only takes 0.1 mg of dissolved ozone per liter to kill E.coli in 10 seconds. The measured ozone concentration in cold water with the Tri-Oxy® PURE is 0.995 mg per liter, and .300 mg per liter in hot water. It is important to note that each and every pathogen has its own time and concentration level of ozone required to kill it. The Tri-Oxy® PURE concentration of 0.995 mg per liter was tested with the City of Kennewick, Washington source water. For instance, the City of Kennewick source water had the below levels of contaminates and minerals to consider in the test result concentrations previously mentioned. The reason source water quality parameters are considered is that the ozone injected into the water would first be consumed in breaking down the following items present in Kennewick’s water: hardness 100 to 240 ppm (5 to 14 grains/gallon), Sodium The oxidation potential of ozone is reduced by water ph, total dissolved solids, minerals, chemicals and toxic metals. In order to really determine the ideal contact time and concentration, you will need to test your water for ozone concentration levels after the Tri-Oxy® PURE has been installed.
Even with the City of Kennewick example, the Tri-Oxy® PURE was able to produce 0.995 mg per liter. This can be useful to reduce contaminates in a food supply, but keep in mind that not all pathogens or chemicals will be eliminated. The good news is that pathogens such as Salmonella and E.coli are killed at much lower concentration levels and require very little contact time. The Tri-Oxy® PURE machine provides home users with the ability to turn on the kitchen faucet and increase the safety of their food by simply rinsing and washing off food with instant on demand ozonated water. Additionally, ozone is fantastic to extend the shelf life of fruits and vegetables. Cold storage warehouses report that bruises and cuts on fresh food items in storage are healed with ozone. In addition, a large reduction of spoilage and waste has occurred with the implementation of ozone practices in warehouses.
The Tri-Oxy® PURE has additional uses besides increasing the safety of food sources. It can also be hooked up to a laundry machine and eliminate the need for hot water and soap. It can be hooked up to the hot and cold water lines of a shower to produce ozonated water for bathing. It can even be used as a garden sprayer, so an individual can go outside and spray the plants and vegetables in their garden with ozonated water. Many people do not realize that the soil and fertilizers commonly used today have parasite larvae in them. Those eggs can be ingested and carry on a life cycle within the body. Ozone can help take care of this problem through cell lysing, which is when the outside sack of the parasite larvae is destroyed and interrupts the life cycle. Additional insect larvae are
also destroyed, which is why spraying crops with ozonated water reduces the need for pesticides. This practice further increases the safety of the foods for consumption.
The Tri-Oxy® PURE has a 400 mg per hour ozone generator with a 5000 hour life rating, so it ases the safety of the foods for consumption.
The team at www.GoHealthyNext.com can help the homeowner with tips and tricks to perform the installation themselves. One customer successfully installed the Tri-Oxy® PURE and created vacuum where we thought it was impossible. The customer installed the PURE after a reverse osmosis machine that supplied a very low flow of water through a ¼” I.D. pipe. He bypassed the breather hose and “y” and connected the silicone tubing direct to the Tri-Oxy® PURE. He has instant on-demand ozonated water in a low flow application. will literally last years. It can be easily installed following the provided directions with common plumbing fittings. The trick is to create enough vacuum to turn on the machine with a series of check valve and hoses.
When the machine produces ozone, the blue light will turn on. When the machine is on stand-by, the red power light will remain lit as long as the unit is connected to a power source. The Tri-Oxy® PURE can be plugged into AC 100V-240V outlets without the use of a power transformer converter. The Tri-Oxy® PURE comes with a plug type A, however, customers can use the World Travel Plug Adapter, if they have a different outlet and plug type.
The Tri-Oxy REVIVE
The Tri-Oxy REVIVE is a light weight dependable solid state device that uses high frequency electricity to produce a small, safe level of ozone. It creates a consistent electrical output with Tesla current through glass electrodes. The kit includes four different electrodes; the pointer, toe, spoon, and big mushroom argon electrodes, as well as three Neon electrodes; the roller, fork, and big mushroom neon glass electrodes. These tubes are all different shapes and figures, so the user can slide them across various parts of the body and drive ozone into their tissues.
It works by the electrodes creating a shock in the gap between the electrode and the body. That spark will jump from the electrode towards the body for relaxation and cosmetic benefits.
The Tri-Oxy® FRESH
The Tri-Oxy® FRESH is a more compact version of the water ozonator that is contained in the (now discontinued) Tri-Oxy® RE-ION, without a built in plasma generator for air purification. The Tri-Oxy® FRESH has the same powerful 400 mg/hour, 8,000 hour life corona discharge ozone generator that was in the Tri-Oxy® RE-ION. Even though it is a smaller unit, it is just as effective.
The compact size of the Tri-Oxy® FRESH enables it to sit flat on the counter while it conveniently cleans food or makes ozonated water. It uses high frequency and voltage to produce ozone for use in your home. The machine is designed to be versatile and dependable so you can improve the air quality by killing bacteria, eliminating odors, or dissolving ozone into water. You can produce ozonated drinking water, ozonated water for bathing and washing skin, and ozonated water for washing food or clothing. The energy generated by the machine attaches to oxygen molecules to create ozone. The ozone can then break down pollutants into simpler and less harmful molecules.
In 2001, the USDA approved the use of ozone with food, and it is starting to be used in grocery stores to keep produce fresh longer. One ozone molecule kills the same number of bacteria that requires over 3000 chlorine molecules, and it also kills them over 2500 times faster than chlorine. Ozone reduces or eliminates mold and mildew, and heals blemishes on the outside of fruits and vegetables. Ozone is even used in the wine industry, in place of toxic pesticides. Plant leaves of agriculture crops are sprayed with ozone, which not only reduces the cost of framing, but increases the health of the plants.
Ozone generators are powerful tools that supply the body with active oxygen through ingestion of ozonated water, which is recommended to be done on a daily basis. This active state of oxygen is the by-product of oxidation, which in itself is beneficial, not to mention the destruction of pathogens and chemicals that occur during the oxidation process. I do not know what I would do without drinking ozonated water every day, bathing in it, and using it to clean my clothing. I have used ozone generators long enough to see the tremendous benefits. If you want to detoxify your body, drinking and using ozonated water is an excellent addition to your detoxification program. It is necessary to increase the oxygen levels in your body to boost the healing process along and improve your overall health. If only we didn’t live in a contaminated world, and could keep ourselves from coming in contact with hundreds of hazardous chemicals, metals and toxins. Unfortunately, we can’t control the world, but we can enhance our own immediate environment, use safe practices and implement the use of ozone in our daily routines. GoHealthyNext.com offers the Tri-Oxy® line of ozone generators, to enable everyone an affordable and easy way to add active oxygen into their daily lives.
