Ozone therapy and cancer
In 1931, Dr Otto Warburg, a German Biochemist, won the Nobel Prize for Medicine for linking the lack of oxygen at cellular level to the development of cancer. Warburg’s research concluded that healthy cells in the body need oxygen to flourish, but cancer cells cannot thrive in an oxygenated environment.
With this principle in mind, ozone therapy aims to enhance the efficacy and decreases the side-effects of modern-day cancer treatments such as chemotherapy and radiotherapy. However, Eileen Jacobs says that it is crucial for patients not only to rely on ozone therapy for cancer treatment. “Patients can benefit from ozone therapy if they use it as part of a holistic approach to treat cancer alongside chemotherapy and radiation,” she explains.
