Can we cure and prevent corona virus infection using ozone therapy?

Posted by Elena Sincariova

Coronaviruses (CoV) are a large family of viruses that cause illness ranging from the common cold to more severe diseases such as Middle East Respiratory Syndrome (MERS-CoV) and Severe Acute Respiratory Syndrome (SARS-CoV). A novel coronavirus (nCoV) is a new strain that has not been previously identified in humans.

Coronaviruses are zoonotic, meaning they are transmitted between animals and people.  Detailed investigations found that SARS-CoV was transmitted from civet cats to humans and MERS-CoV from dromedary camels to humans. Several known coronaviruses are circulating in animals that have not yet infected humans.

Common signs of infection include respiratory symptoms, fever, cough, shortness of breath and breathing difficulties. In more severe cases, infection can cause pneumonia, severe acute respiratory syndrome, kidney failure and even death.

Standard recommendations to prevent infection spread include regular hand washing, covering mouth and nose when coughing and sneezing, thoroughly cooking meat and eggs. Avoid close contact with anyone showing symptoms of respiratory illness such as coughing and sneezing.

Now Coming to the main topic on Possibilities of Using ozone, ozone therapy & routine daily activities to cure and protect against coronavirus infection

Things to remember and understand before reading and interpreting this article.

  1. Ozone is a very strong oxidizing agent.
  2. Ozone in the form of gas if inhaled in excess quantity is harmful to humans.
  3. Ozone is already being used to sterilize and disinfect water, seafood, vegetables, fruits, waste water, sewage, effluent, and other items.
  4. Today ozone is already being used for various medical applications like disinfecting medical equipment, treating infected wounds, circulatory disorder, geriatric disorders, macular degeneration, viral diseases, rheumatism and arthritis, cancer, SARS, AIDS. (Reference – https://www.medicalnewstoday.com/articles/320759.php#uses)
  5. Although ozone is a gas, developments in technology mean it can be used in several forms and different ways, including: ozonated olive oil applied directly to the body, insufflation – a risky therapy where ozone is blown into the rectum, autohemotherapy – where blood is withdrawn, mixed with ozone, and put back into the bloodstream. (Reference – https://www.medicalnewstoday.com/articles/320759.php#uses)
  6. Please read this detailed article about ozone at to understand in detail –https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC3312702/
  7. Never ever do medical application of ozone by self without professional supervision. Especially when it comes to inhale ozone in gas form. Being uncertain avoid inhaling ozone in any quantity.
  8. The NIOSH recommended exposure limit for ozone is 0.1 ppm (0.2 mg/m3). According to NIOSH, Ozone levels of 5 ppm or higher are considered immediately dangerous to life or health.

Virucidal effect of ozone.

Ozone gas has been proven to kill the SARS coronavirus and since the structure of the new 2019-nCoV coronavirus is almost identical to that of the SARS coronavirus, it is relatively safe to say that it will also work on the new coronavirus though it must be noted that there is no studies to date except one that is current ongoing n China at the Institute of Virology In Hubei with regards to this. Progress of that study has shown that it works and the study should be concluded by the end of this week and officially published in the journal Virology.
There are more than 17 scientific studies that show Ozone gas is able to destroy the SARS coronavirus.
Ozone is a naturally occurring gas created from oxygen atoms. The oxygen molecule is made up of 2 oxygen atoms. These oxygen molecules are broken into atoms by the corona discharge during lightning storms or by UV light from the Sun. Single oxygen atoms cannot exist alone without regrouping back into di-atomic oxygen molecules. During this recombination stage some atoms will regroup into loosely bonded tri-atomic oxygen. This new molecule is called Ozone or O3.
Ozone generators are able to make ozone from normal air and are normally used as room disinfectants.
The antipathogenic effects of ozone have been substantiated for several decades. Its killing action upon bacteria, viruses, fungi, and in many species of protozoa, serve as the basis for its increasing use in disinfecting municipal water supplies in cities worldwide.
Typically, viruses are small, independent particles, built of crystals and macromolecules. Unlike bacteria, they multiply only within the host cell. Ozone destroys viruses by diffusing through the protein coat into the nucleic acid core, resulting in damage of the viral RNA. At higher concentrations, ozone destroys the capsid or exterior protein shell by oxidation.
Numerous families of viruses including poliovirus I and 2, human rotavruses, Norwalk virus, Parvoviruses, and Hepatitis A, B and non-A non-B are among many others that are susceptible to the virucidal actions of ozone.
Most research efforts on ozone's virucidal effects have centered upon ozone's propensity to break apart lipid molecules at sites of multiple bond configuration. Indeed, once the lipid envelope of the virus is fragmented, its DNA or RNA core cannot survive.
Non-enveloped viruses (Adenoviridae, Picornaviridae, namely poliovirus, Coxsachie, Echovirus, Rhinovirus, Hepatitis A and E, and Reoviridae (Rotavirus), have also begun to be studied. Viruses that do not have an envelope are called "naked viruses." They are constituted of a nucleic acid core (made of DNA or RNA) and a nucleic acid coat, or capsid, made of protein. Ozone, however, aside from its well-recognized action upon unsaturated lipids, can also interact with certain proteins and their constituents, namely amino acids. Indeed, when ozone comes in contact with capsid proteins, protein hydroxides and protein hydroxides and protein hydroperoxides are formed. Viruses have no protections against oxidative stress.
The enveloped viruses are usually more sensitive to physico-chemical challenges than are naked virions. Although ozone's effects upon unsaturated lipids is one of its best documented biochemical action, ozone is known to interact with proteins, carbohydrates, and nucleic acids.
The new coronavirus is an enveloped virus.

Oils containing ozone disinfect hands as well as hand sanitizer

One of the most important ways to prevent the spread of germs is handwashing with soap or alcohol-based hand sanitizer.  This is particularly important in hospitals.

But another method can be at least as good — after washing your hands in regular tap water with soap, use ozonated oil for deeper disinfection.

Another benefit of using ozonated oil for hand disinfection is that it does not cause skin irritation and dryness that can be associated with hand sanitizer.
