OXIDATION: PURE BLOOD AND DISEASE STRANGERS TO EACH OTHER
The preservation of health and prevention of disease is dependent almost entirely upon pure, healthy blood. Every organ,
nerve, tissue and sinew of the body draws on this vital fluid for nourishment and strength. When the blood is not right, other
things go wrong.
The object of respiration is to bring the oxygen of the air in close relationship with the hemoglobin of the blood and
to permit of the elimination of carbonic acid gas (CO2) from the body as well as other effete products in minute
In the process of respiration waste products are exposed to the action of the oxygen of the air, and they are burned up
very much as if they were put into a stove, thereby producing body heat. In the living body, heat, whether tangible or not,
is continually being generated through the chemical action of carbon and oxygen.
When the blood receives sufficient oxygen to unite with the carbon in the proportion of two atoms of oxygen to one of
carbon, carbonic acid gas (CO2) is formed, which is in a suitable condition to be eliminated. The process of oxidation
is complete, the body temperature maintained at normal (98.6o F.), the organs perform their functions properly
and the system is in a condition to resist the toxic influence of micro-organisms.
When, however, an insufficient amount of oxygen is received by the blood, carbon monoxide (CO) is formed, which is not
readily eliminated, and through its poisonous influences the system becomes debilitated or "run down," and trouble begins.
Carbon monoxide is a deoxidizer. It acts as an irritant to the nervous system, destroys hemoglobin, interferes with the functions
of the organs, the body temperature is reduced below normal, which renders the system incapable of resisting the toxic influences
of the various bacteria, and disease is the result.
A LOW TEMPERATURE IS NOT A NORMAL CONDITION - IT IS A DANGER SIGNAL
So prevalent is subnormal temperature among people "run-down," that nine out of ten of them will show a subnormal temperature
by actual thermometer test. The clinical thermometer is the best means of determining the existence of under oxidation and
should be used preferably mornings. The temperature of one who is under-oxidized will be found to run from a fraction of a
degree to three or four degrees below normal.
The under-oxidized and subnormal temperatured person will present one or more of the following symptoms:
Headache, backache, sleeplessness, dizziness, constipation, faint feeling, loss of memory, lack of energy, irregular appetite,
stomach disturbances, coated tongue, puffy ankles, palpitation of the heart, heavy sediment in urine, cold hands and feet,
numbness in limbs, flushing of face, excessive kidney action, disordered menstruation, visual disturbances, subnormal temperature.
From these symptoms we are justified in rendering a diagnosis of under-oxidation, taking on the definite form of either:-
Neurasthenia, constipation, liver disorders, kidney disorders, stomach disorders, intestinal disorders, uterine disorders,
melancholia, hysteria, chorea, functional insanity, anaemia, chlorosis, sexual depression.
The symptoms or conditions that arise from under-oxidation of the blood are not necessarily in proportion
to the degree of sub-normal temperature. A patient showing the fractional part of one degree of subnormal temperature may
present as severe symptoms or condition of disease as one who is several degrees below normal.
OZOL FEEDS THE BLOOD -
A sufficiency of an active form of oxygen for the blood means better blood, better circulation, better combustion, better
equilibrium of body temperature, better vaso-motor activity, better digestion, better assimilation of food products, better
eliminiation of waste products, less chance of auto-intoxication, better chance for body builders, and less chance for body
ANTISEPTIC AND OXIDIZING POWERS OF OZOL
Scientists long ago recognized the great oxidizing and antiseptic powers of ozone, but owing to its irritating effects
upon the respiratory organs, when used as an inhalant, little progress has been made with it in its free state in the treatment
We have succeeded in perfecting a machine whereby we convert the air into ozone and then convert the ozone into a new
peroxide compound (C10H18O3) for inhalation purposes which we have named "OZOL."
The Ozol machine is an electrical device, simple, embracing a number of newly discovered electrical principles ingeniously
combined to accomplish a given purpose.
The Ozol machine is constructed with the highest consideration for proficiency, regardless of cost.
The process of creating the new compound, Ozol, consists of electrical ozonizers of high potential power, the air being
driven through the electrical discharge wherein it is converted into ozone which is passed through glass tubes of crescent
shape, partly filled with volatile oils. Here the all-important chemical change takes place and the new compound gas, Ozol
(C10H18O3), thus formed passes through flexible tubes and is inhaled by patients by means
of moderately close fitting face masks. The chemical union of Ozol with the waste products of the body produces thorough combustion,
the body temperature is raised, waste products are properly eliminated, and a healthful condition of circulation is re-established.
In the new peroxide compound, Ozol, none of the oxidizing, antiseptic or blood-building powers of the ozone are lost.
In fact, these powers are increased to a marked degree. The new gas thus formed contains no ozone in its free state. The identity
of the ozone is lost as to its pungency, odor and chemical reaction. A combination of oils of the Pinus group has been selected
(Eucalyptus, Pine, Thyme, etc.), which not only constitute an agreeable and effective inhalant, but are also recognized as
possessing marked therapeutic value in the treatment of diseased mucous surfaces.
THE NECESSITY FOR OXYGEN
After careful analytical investigations of disease, it has been demonstrated:
First - That one of the most common and important conditions which the doctor is called upon to correct, is the weakness
and incapacity produced by a diminished or impoverished blood supply.
Second- That under-oxidation produces bad health primarily, because of an insufficient supply of oxygen that makes certain
the formation of carbon monoxide, which is at once a deoxidizer, a hemoglobin destroyer, and an irritant poison, devitalizing
the blood and paving the way for consumption, neurasthenia, hysteria, melancholia, functional insanity, menstrual disorders,
excessive kidney action, sleeplessness, asthma, etc., and renders the system susceptible to a multiplicity of acute troubles,
many of which run on to chronicity.
It has long been recognized that atmosphere possesses the properties of blood-building, oxidation and antisepsic. Ozol
differs from atmospheric air only in degree of activity and potency, and Ozol's greater action makes it the greatest blood-building,
oxidizing and antiseptic agent within the reach of the medical profession.
It has been suggested that a subnormal temperature may be a normal condition with some people. This deduction can be controverted
by placing any one with a subnormal temperature under the active influences of Ozol when the temperature can be made to rise
MANY DIFFERENT DISEASES SUCCESSFULLY TREATED
Almost every form of functional, nervous, respiratory and blood disorders can be treated successfully by the Ozol method,
which differs from the usual form of drugging in that its effects are perfectly natural; the nerves being left calm, toned
and pacific, while the muscular system takes on a feeling of buoyancy and exhilaration.
It is unlike so-called nerve sedatives. It does not check secretions or depress the Vaso-Motor system through the nerve
centers, which fact is clearly shown in increased redness of skin, a feeling of warmth of the whole body and waste products
being more freely eliminated. Increase of appetite is soon observed, regular and natural movements of the bowels are established,
and the urine, cleared of its heavy deposits, assumes a natural color and specific gravity. Coated tongue, foul breath, heart
palpitation, despondency, gloomy forebodings, cold hands and cold feet soon disappear.
Persons arise in the morning feeling refreshed and free from headache, languor and pains.
In cases of nervous tension, due to cerebral congestion, causing restlessness, insomnia and melancholia, it brings quick
relief. It imparts a permanency of vigor to the whole system, and the jaded, nerve-wrecked, care-worn appearance of the patient
is replaced at once by a cheerful countenance and it puts the patient in a frame of mind to talk approvingly about the treatment.
The bad influences of under oxidation upon the nervous system are far reaching. it is the foundation stone of worry. Mental
worry is the pit that catches countless thousands. The career of the under oxidized, mentally overworked is brief. Mental
worry and sleepless nights are serious. So closely are neurasthenia and consumption associated that many scientists have declared
that consumption is of nerve origin.
Nerve disorders disorganize the whole system. One organ after another begins to lag and fails to perform its function
properly, and one symptom after another gives warning of existing disorders.
Ozol is prompt of action, in applicable cases, and no one appreciates its effects more than the patient.
It requires 30 to 70 minutes inhalation to saturate the blood, then the patient declines more.
The Ozol method affords conclusive evidence that poor oxidation is the cause of many disorders by reason of the fact that
when it brings the temperature up to normal, all symptoms disappear.
GET STRONG QUICK
In the slow recovery of strength, after long continued fevers, or other protracted illness, which depletes vitality, strength
is rapidly restored and convalescence hastened by the Ozol method.
Special blood diseases soon respond to this remedy, and one experienced physician reports in three years symptomatic cures,
without drugs, in thirty cases of syphilis, in all stages, treated by this method.
Menstrual disorders are so common and so often overshadowed by more serious complications as to be often looked upon as
only of secondary consideration, but it is safe to say that no physician using the Ozol method to any extent, will fail to
observe that it is a most certain and reliable regulator.
It acts with amazing promptness in amenorrhea, dysmenorrhea, hyperemia of the ovaries, and the hyperesthetic conditions
caused by engorgement of the pelvic viscera. The two so-called "critical periods" of the woman's life, either in girlhood
or middle age, at last find a satisfactory remedy in Ozol. If effectually robs the climacteric of its horrors.
In the absence of atrophy, it is most reliable in re-establishing the normal functional activities of the genitalia.
THE DRUGLESS TREATMENT
The Ozol method is a rational and agreeable departure from the older methods of dosing by the stomach. It does the work,
unaided by any other remedy. It is not ozone; it is the product of ozone and the essential oils of the pine - a new gas, the
formula of which is C10H18O3. It stands the severest test, not in one particular disease
only, but in many widely different diseases. It produces results, and that is what the physician recognizes as his greatest
UNDER-OXIDATION OF THE BLOOD, AND WHAT IT STANDS FOR.
WM. D. NEEL, M.D., CHICAGO.
The Journal of Advanced Therapeutics, pages 93-97, Vol. 25, 1907.
Under-oxidation of the blood and the resultant subnormal temperature of the body are far more common and are of greater
significance than the casual observer is prepared to believe. This conclusion is based upon very extensive observations of
the subject of subnormal temperature, its cause, the consequences, and the seeming little attention these conditions have
Medical literature has been exceedingly silent upon the subject. The question of the importance of means of oxidizing the blood for the prevention and cure of disease has scarcely passed the primary stage. We all know, empirically, that increasing oxidation of the blood by fresh air treatment is often attended by good results, but how best to oxidize, when to increase oxidation, and how much
oxidizing to do are matters that have not even reached the stage of practical art, much less one of science. See Oxidizing The Blood Through The Agency Of Electrification In The Treatment Of Disease.
Physiologists long ago settled the question of how animal temperature is produced and maintained. The cause of body heat
was formerly attributed to fermentation, but later to combustion; the chief agent of which process is oxygen.
If the blood does not receive sufficient oxygen to cause the proper amount of combustion to take place, it will surely
result in a lowering of body temperature. A low temperature is not a normal condition. It is a danger signal. Not necessarily
an immediate danger but a danger nevertheless.
As soon as oxidation to a part is diminished, that part begins to die and becomes a suitable field for infection.
When the blood receives sufficient oxygen to unite with carbon in the proportion of two atoms of oxygen to one of carbon,
carbon dioxide is formed which is in a suitable condition to be eliminated. When an insufficient amount of oxygen is received
by the blood, carbon monoxide is formed which is not readily eliminated and, through its toxic influences, functional disorders
Carbon monoxide is a deoxidizer, destroys hemoglobin and otherwise lessens the resisting powers of the blood to the destructive
influences of micro-organisms and organic diseases are invited.
The union of carbon monoxide with the oxygen-carrying bodies of the blood has such a strong tendency to permanency that
its separation is only accomplished after prolonged and persistent efforts at oxidation.
One of our best aids in making a diagnosis generally is the clinical thermometer, but the force of habit is responsible
for many oversights in its use. As a rule, when we unsheathe our thermometers for clinical observations, we anticipate fever
and feel contented when the register fails to poke its nose above the spear that stands for normal. So strong is this habit
and so fully are we imbued with the idea of fever that we have fallen into the custom of calling the clinical thermometer
"a fever thermometer." It is a most common occurrence to hear a physician ask for "a fever thermometer" or speak of the clinical
thermometer as a fever thermometer.
Why call it a fever thermometer when there is as much significance to be attached to the reading when the register stops
below the normal mark as there is when it rises above? I fear that we are too liable to conclude that a low register is the
result of haste, imperfect contact, failure to exclude air, or that a subnormal temperature is non-important. Probably we
pass a subnormal temperature over lightly because it does not indicate an acute trouble or anything that would tend to a rapid
It is to be feared that we have learned too little of the lesson of under-oxidation as a cause of disease,
if, indeed, not a most important factor in senile atrophy.
It is natural for one who has studied a subject as long and as closely as I have this one to run to extremes, but I have
found so much in it that has been apparently overlooked that it astounds me. I find that many other physicians are equally
surprised when they are induced to get out their thermometers and test the temperature of their obstinate and chronic cases.
They can hardly believe their own eyes when they almost invariably find a high percentage of them subnormal from the fractional
part of one degree to two, three, four, or five degrees. Especially will this be found true when the temperature is tested
early mornings. The subnormal temperature is not only observable mornings but in a very high percentage of cases, it obtains
throughout the twenty-four hours of the day.
In seeking an explanation for the great prevalence of sub-normal temperature, some have ventured the suggestion that "a
low register may be looked upon as a normal condition." This deduction can be controverted by placing those of low temperature
under better conditions for oxidizing the blood, when the temperature will be seen to rise to 98.6oF. and maintained indefinitely.
The symptoms that arise from under-oxidation of the blood are not necessarily in proportion to the degree of subnormal
temperature. A patient, showing the fractional part of one degree of subnormal temperature, may present as severe symptoms
as one who is several degrees below.
The subnormal individual will almost invariably present some one or more of the following symptoms: Fatigue, lack of energy,
pain in the back, loss of memory, sleeplessness, headache (creeping, throbbing, or bursting), constipation, loss of appetite,
constant sense of pulse-beat, visual disturbance, stomach complications, disordered menstruation, vertigo, lower limbs have
a tendency to give way beneath the weight of the body, shooting or darting pains, headaches sent them to oculist, cold hands
and feet, frequent micturition nights, numbness or creepy sensations, heavy sediment in urine, cough, tightness of chest,
difficulty in breating, palpitation of the heart, flushing of face or body, apprehensive of dreadful happenings, etc.
From these symptoms, we are warranted in rendering a diagnosis of under-oxidation, taking on the form of either neurasthenia,
insomnia, functional insanity, asthma, constipation, consumption, dyspepsia, anemia, liver or kidney disorder, ovarian trouble,
womb disease, menstrual irregularities, sexual depression, malnutrition, hysteria, chorea, etc. And, we might find that organic
complications have already set in as bacterial and toxic troubles are highly favored.
Interference with functional activity impairs the resisting powers of the whole economy. If the blood is not right, other
things will go wrong.
I believe that I am well within the limits of facts when I assert that under-oxidation of the blood is responsible for
the great majority of functional diseases and that organic diseases owe their existence mainly to function perversion.
A sufficiency of oxygen for the blood means better blood, better combustion, better equilibrium of the body temperature, better circulation, better vasomotion,
better functional performance of all the organs, better assimilation of food, better elimination of waste products, less chance
for auto-intoxication, better chance for body builders, and less chance for body destroyers.
It is a praiseworthy fact that the attention of the medical world is being more and more directed towards better oxidation
and less medicine as a means of treating disease. It was a great revolution in medicine when the profession discarded the
practice of medicine by depletion for that of oxidizing and building up. It was a great step but we have been dreadfully slow
in formulating the new method into a practical and satisfactory system. As a comparison between the two systems of medicine,
a brief summary will show a radical difference.
For instance, the practice of medicine by depletion had reached the zenith of its glory in the days of George Washington,
and soon after his time it began to wane. Up to the George Washington period, most all acute troubles were classed as fevers.
When one was taken sick, he was put to bed, the doors and windows were closed, the cracks were chinked, evidently with the
object of excluding every breath of fresh air. All the available bed clothing about the house was piled on the patient with
the view of causing him to sweat. If he failed to sweat, hot bran or steaming hot ears of corn were packed about his body,
he was denied drinking water, and was either bled, leeched, cupped, or blistered; all with the object of depleting the fluids
of the body to overcome disease.
Under the revised system, the order of procedure is completely reversed. Now, the doors and windows are thrown open, if
the weather will at all admit, to give the patient fresh air for the purpose of better oxidizing the blood. Light weight covering
is used or none at all, to allow the excessive temperature to radiate in the open air. If the temperature is not reduced to
a desirable degree in this way, a cool sponge bath is given and if the temperature is too stubborn, a cold plunge may be resorted
to and the patient is given all the water he can drink, and when he becomes convalescent, he is put out of doors for more
fresh air than it is practical to get indoors. The great aim is to build up and give the patient resisting powers and not
to deplete and tear down.
Oxidizing the blood for the purpose of preventing and curing disease has grown steadily in favor. But slow progress has been made towards the
improvement or better application of Nature's remedy. We still use it, indiscriminately, as Nature originally provided it
for the most part.
Better ventilation of the patient's apartments or turning the patient out of doors is good in many instances,
but it does not assure the necessary amount of oxygen in many cases for obvious reasons. A want of knowledge of how to breathe
properly, the too passive activity of the air to satisfactorily meet existing pathological conditions, obstructions of the
nose, the lining membranes of the lungs thickened by catarrh and coated with mucus are some of the obstacles to free ventilation
of the blood or, in other words, the proper exchange of oxygen for carbon dioxide.
