Some Historical Info.
The use of medical ozone is not new and ozone is a naturally occurring molecule and healthful gas. In 1740, Schonbein discovered ozone and in 1891 the molecular composition was modeled. Observation soon revealed that ozone reacted with and destroyed bacteria, virus, and other organisms, that it has antibacterial, antiviral and antifungal properties without irritating effects. During the 1st World War the application of ozone to war wounds served primarily as a disinfectant.
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 give to doctors for medical use.
"Ozonated olive oil is an effective adjunct treatment for inflammations of the skin, such as dermatitis and seborrhea. Ozonated olive oil is helpful in bacterial infections of the skin including carbuncles, cellulitis, ecthyma, erysipelas, erythasma, folicullitis, furuncles, granuloma annulare, impetigo, paronychia, psoriasis, ringworm, skin yeast, staphylococcus, sweat gland infections and the tinia versicolor. It is also helpful for bed sores (decubitus ulcers) and for the post-surgical treatment of wounds to prevent secondary infections." - (Dr H.E. Sartori)
