The following is the final part to a paper written by Dr. Sunnners
“Dr. Sunnen’s Paper on Historical and Current Ozone Usage”.

Historical and Current Ozone Usage – Part II
Today, we continue on the history and current usages of Ozone, I
am writing excerpts from the book “Oxygen Therapies”, by Ed McCabe
on “Dr. Sunnen’s Paper on Historical and Current Ozone Usage”, pp
Now rarely used, this method of direct injection (without first
mixing the blood with ozone outside the body), was used by Lacoste
in 1951 on gangrene. It is rarely used because of the potential of
accidents due to too rapid an injection. He found that up to 10 ml
of pure ozone/oxygen could be directly injected into the leg
artery, or a vein, without getting dangerous bubbles in the blood,
since both gases are readily soluble in blood.
Used with blood treatment, this is an added cancer therapy. Up to
10 ml of the pure mixture is injected into the muscles.
Ozone is about 10 times more soluble in water than oxygen. Used
mostly in dental surgery, it improves the local oxygen supply, and
inhibits bacteria. Ozone water has also been used on peridontal
disease, swallowed for treatment of gastric cancer, and applied as
a wash in intestinal or bladder inflammation.
Mixed with olive oil, this mixture gives a low strength, long term
dose of ozone and lipid peroxidases to the tissues. Used on fungal
growths and skin ulcers.
Ozone bubled through warm water irrigates the skin, to disinfect
and treat eczema and skin ulcers.
An exciting possibility, all the world’s blood supplies may
possibly be made viral free! Treating 500 ml of whole blood with
100 ml of ozone/oxygen mixture (40-50 ug/ml) is reported to render
it virus free without injuring any healthy cells. One particular
study tested ten thousand treated samples and found no hepatitis.
In the future, this technique may also be used in removing the
AIDS virus. One preliminary unpublished study indicates this to be
Effects of Ozone:
Most studies, up to this point, have only focused on proving how
breathing ozone was toxic, or name it as air pollution. Pure
ozone, applied in the proper say, is quite a different story. The
studies where animals have inhaled it do not equal the response of
the human lungs, because there are so many differences in the
anatomy and physiology. Mice have the most trouble with it, and
birds the least. Inhaling very low dosages increases enzyme
activity, while overdosage can result in bleeding in the lungs. We
see again the window concept, and refer you to what “Merlin” found
Due to the danger of breathing in too much ozone, modern treatment
machines are designed to prevent any leakage into the treatment
room, as well as catalytically converting excess ozone to oxygen
during administration. some studies, however, point to beneficial
effect of low dosage ambient ozone.
Bactericical, Virucidal, and Fungicidal Action:
We have known ozone kills and inhibits pathogens since the
nineteenth century. What we haven’t done is the tests proving
exactly why it has these effects. Only a few microgreams per liter
provide germ killing action. It works even faster on viruses than
bacteria, at lower dosages, and is influenced by pH, temperature,
and other nearby organic compounds. Different viruses have
different susceptibility to destruction by ozone, for example, the
polio virus is forty times more resistant than other viruses.
Ozone’s popular reputation as a bactericide centers on it’s
ability to destroy the pathogen’s outer fatty/protein shell. In
one study it actually penetrated the cell’s membrane and changed
the DNA. Higher organisms have enzymes that can restabilize
disrupted DNA & RNA, where lower forms do not. This could be why
ozonem, at proper levels, will kill a virus (a lower lifeform),
and leave a person’s (higher lifeform) cells unharmed.
One study showed the ability to destroy candida fungi to be
dependent on their stage of growth. Budding cells were the most
sensitive. Another study showed a low dose increasing the growth
of two other fungi.
Viruses are genetic parasites, and can be separated inito
families, based on structure. Those containing lipids are the most
sensitive: herpes, mumps, measles, flu, rabies, HIV/AIDS. In some,
the shell is damaged, in others they remain whole, but unable to
reproduce. Often the ozone is used up in a blood reaction, and the
products of that reaction cause the destruction or inactivation of
the pathogens. Although unlikely to be outright curative by
itself, when combined with other therapies, ozone may lessen
clinical severity or duration.
