“An ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure”, these words were spoken by Mr Benjamin Franklin. Yes, when he said these words, he wasn’t necessarily talking about healthcare, but of fire prevention. Even so, these words are none the less true. We should live by these words, not just in healthcare but in every aspect of our lives.
Most of us live with an idea of, “That will never be me”, “I have no family history of illness & disease” or “I’ll go out quick”. By saying these words, we condition our brains to believe it. We think “we’re still young, we can get healthy when we’re old”. At what age is that really? I have spoken to 40 year olds, 60 year olds and even above 80’s, and they all say the same thing. “I still feel 18!”. Age seems to happen over night. One day you’re young and care free and the next you’re old and sick.
That is why we should work on ourselves from a young age. We should teach our children to look after themselves and follow a healthy lifestyle. Preventing disease is much easier than curing it. Start eating healthier, limit fast food, processed food, saturated fat, trans fat, sugar, sodium and oil. Drink at least 1,5 litres of water daily and get enough exercise.
Unfortunately, in the world today, we are exposed to massive amounts of toxins. These toxins can be found in the food we buy (pesticides, hormones, etc), as well as in the air we breathe. According to Dr Otto Warburg, two time Noble Prize Winner in Medicine, “the main cause of disease as well as cancer is due to the lack of oxygen at a cellular level”. The ever-increasing rise in diseases and ailments around the world can directly be linked to the increase in pollution since the Industrial Revolution started off in the 1800’s
Ozone Therapy is a non-invasive way to increase the oxygen levels in your body. For a detailed scientific explanation on how Ozone acts with the body, visit here OR for a basic explanation view our Understanding Ozone Therapy page.
Normally, blood cells function by burning sugar in oxygen to provide energy. The waste products are carbon dioxide and water. If there is insufficient oxygen at the cellular level, the cell wall functions anaerobically and the waste products will be carbon monoxide and lactic acid. The body cannot easily rid itself of monoxide and lactic acid, it prevents haemoglobin from picking up fresh oxygen and the body temperature is lowered.
The lactic acid will build up in this system, clogging nerve signal pathways, eventually solidifying and causing degeneration and destroys the governor for cell production leading to multitudes of immature cells known as cancer cells. More oxygen is required to come in and oxidize these toxins, but if it is not available, they build up. The blood will carry a heavy load of sludge and toxins will be deposited in the fat and the lymph. The water that composes the body gets dirtier and dirtier. Free radicals proliferate as toxins interfere with the normal neutralising enzyme mechanisms for cleaning them up. Disease is the result.
The hundreds of different diseases named by allopathy (whether viral, bacterial, protozoal, fungal, communicable, autoimmune or degenerative) are all but symptoms of one underlying cause. That cause is hypoxia or oxygen starvation at the cellular level, leading to internal toxicity. Ozone is such a powerful therapeutic tool because it deals with the underlying cause through both oxygenation and oxidation.
Ozone taken on a regular basis will, over time, safely clean all the fluid of the body and furnish an oxygen-rich environment for all the cells in the body, providing high levels of immunity from most of our common diseases. Remember, everything in moderation – extreme concentrations of ozone can actually start to reverse the cell healing process.
