Amazing early historical uses of Ozone in the medical industry, a must read! Part 1

In 1896, the electrical genius Nikola Tesla patented his first ozone generator, and in 1900 he formed the Tesla Ozone Co. Tesla sold ozone machines and ozonated olive oil to doctors.

In 1898 Dr. Benedict Lust, a German doctor practicing in New York and the founder of Naturopathy, wrote many articles and books on ozone. Naturopathy has as its foundation the use of heat, light, air and water. Ozone qualifies as the \'air\' segment.

In 1902, J.H. Clarke’s "A Dictionary of Practical Materia Medical", London, described the successful use of ozonated water, he called it “Oxygenium" in treating anemia, cancer, diabetes, influenza, morphine poisoning, canker sores, strychnine poisoning and whooping cough.

In 1902, Dr. Charles Linder MD, of Spokane, Washington was written up in an article in a local newspaper which stated that he injected ozone into patients as part of his standard medical practice.

In 1904 "The Medical Uses of Hydrozone and Glycozone" by Charles Marchand, a New York chemist. Hydrozone was another name for ozonated water and Glycozone was another name for ozonated olive oil. This book is in the Library of Congress with the US Surgeon General's stamp of approval on it.

In 1910 Sears sold ozone generators.

In 1911"A Working Manual of High Frequency Currents" was published by Dr. Noble Eberhart, MD, the head of the Dept. of Physiologic Therapeutics at Loyola University, Chicago. He details the use of ozone to treat tuberculosis, anemia, chlorosis, tinnitus, whooping cough, asthma, bronchitis, hay fever, insomnia, pneumonia, diabetes, gout and syphilis.

In 1913, the Eastern Association for Oxygen Therapy was formed by Dr. Eugene Blass and some German associates.

In 1920, Dr. Charles Neiswanger, MD, President of the Chicago Hospital College of Medicine published "Electro Therapeutical Practice." Chapter 32 was entitled "Ozone as a Therapeutic Agent."

In 1929, a book called "Ozone and Its Therapeutic Action" was published in the USA. It listed 114 diseases and how to treat them with ozone. Its authors were the heads of leading American hospitals.

In 1930 The Journal of The American Medical Association published an article called: "The Therapeutic Use of Oxygen in Coronary Thrombosis."

1931 Dr. Otto Warburg wins first Nobel Prize for work proving cancer is caused by a lack of oxygen in the cells. He states in "The Prime Cause and Prevention of Cancer" that the cause of cancer is no longer a mystery, we know it occurs whenever any cell is denied 60% of its oxygen requirements. This occurs through a buildup of pollution or toxicity within and around the cell which blocks and then damages the cellular oxygen respiration mechanism.

Beginning Of Ozone Cover-up: (3 years after saying it was "therapeutic")
In 1933, the American Medical Association (AMA), headed up by M. Fishbein, set out to eliminate in the USA all medical treatments that were competitive to drug therapy. The suppression of the use of ozone therapy by doctors in the USA began then, and continues to this day, except in thirteen states, where currently doctors are protected by state laws.

1938 In the Parisian Medical Bulletin, Paul Aubourg, Honorary Electro-Radiologist in the Hospitals of Paris, published \"Medical Ozone: Production, Dosage, and Methods of Clinical Application Using Rectal Insufflation" noted that of 465 patients, the colon capacity varied from 150 to 800ccs, so everyone was x-ray photographed to determine the proper dosage. Vaginal insufflations were common. Breathable concentrations of ozone were routinely applied to infected sinuses. Intermuscular injections were abandoned as too painful and ineffective. In 8000 applications of ozone, there were no accidents or harmful side effects.

Government Cover-up Begins:
In the 1940s at the request of the AMA, the FDA began seizing ozone generators.

So In summary to swim in an ozonated freshwater pool has a myriad of health benefits as well as providing more than adequate sanitation for your pool. SwimFresh boasts of giving you the highest quality water available.
