Koch Therapy "Homoeopathic Oxidation Catalyst Approach to Oxygen/Oxidation Therapy
The most important pioneer of all oxygen/oxidation therapies was a research scientist, professor and medical doctor from Detroit College of Medicine named William F. Koch. His discoveries of a higher level metabolic cycle called the FCG (Functional Carbonyl Group) cycle showed the importance of oxygen and the role it plays in natural immunity and overall health. Dr. Koch based a large portion of his research on the findings of Nobel Laureate, Dr. Otto Warburg, author of "The Prime Cause and Prevention of Cancer". Substantiating Naturopathic tenets by his very work, Dr. Koch found that truly ALL cancer and degenerative disease was reversible and the restoration of health attainable. Briefly described, the Koch Oxidation Catalyst Treatment is a homeopathic dilution of a "patially oxidized solution of inositol" chemically and scientifically optimized for redox enhancement. Lawrence Thatcher, the designated trustee of the Christian Medical Research League was founded to maintain the provision of the catalysts up until the mid-1990s. In cooperation with the oldest international oxygen therapies association, an integrative, redox (oxidation-reduction cycle) naturopathic treatment protocol was developed and tested to best support the catalyst treatment. This protocol is published in WNHO, World Natural Health Organization and the journal " Naturopathy - the Naturopath and Herald of Health", should not be over looked by any natural healthcare practitioner truly interested in seeing patient's health improve greatly. After 20+ years of further research and development, combining the accumulated knowledge of several "oxidative/oxygenation originators and masters" the protocol was released for public review. American Naturopathic Association & Breath of Life International are the sole representative agencies for Blass Therapy Homozon and assures the purity, quality and authenticity.
Fresh Air Curative Effect - Related to Ions and Traces of Ozone by Thomas Valone, M.A., P.E. Explore More! Number 16 1996
Ions and trace amounts of ozone have been fund to be the two missing ingredients of typical indoor air. This article traces the history of ion an ozone research, including medical findings. Modern home and office buildings are often airtight with windows that do not open. As indoor pollutants build up, sick building syndrome is on the rise. A few parts per billion of ozone, along with a healthy dose of negative ions, sanitizes, deodorizes, and revitalizes the air. This synergistic combination has been found to produce a wide range of health benefits, which are described in this article.
Atmospheric Electricity Not until 1752 was the secret of atmospheric electricity discovered - when Ben Franklin in the U.S. and d'Alibard, a French investigator, working independently, porved that lightning occurs when thunder clouds discharge electricity. It was a reasonable explanation - foreshadowed years before when one observer had noted crackling and flashes when he rubbed a lump of amber and held it close to a finger. "It seems", he had suggested, "in some degree to represent thunder and lightning."
Another form of atmospheric electricity, more subtle than celestial phenomena, was discovered by Lemonnier, who found that an iron wire attached from the top of a building to the bottom produced sparks at times. It even vigorously attracted dust particles in fine weather, indicating that it was electrified. The electricity must be coming form the air.
Father Giambattista Beccaria of the university of Turin made careful observations for 20 years. He finally wrote, "It appears that nature makes extensive use of atmospheric electricity for promoting vegetation." He also added, "We have also observed that artificial electricity without sparks has the same effect on vegetation."
Air Ions What was this electricity that these early pioneers were experiencing? Not until the latter part of the 19th century did Elster and Geitel in Germany and J.J. Thomson of England discover ions in the air. "Ion" comes from the Greek for "traveler". The term was first used to describe charged atoms moving in solution. For example, when table salt is dissolved in water, the sodium chloride splits into sodium ions and chlorine ions which will migrate to negative and positive electrodes respectively.
Air ions are somewhat different from ions in solution. Energy is needed for their formation - even the shearing of water droplets in a waterfall supplies enough energy to make the fine spray carry a considerable load of small negative air ions while the heavier positive ions stay in the tumbling water. Ion concentrations have been measured at spas located near waterfalls to be as high as 35,000 per cubic centimeter of air.
Urban Air is Ion Depleted However, modern urban environments present a different kind of air quality: ion depletion. Very few human activities add small ion to the air while many of them lead to ion loss. Industrial pollutants, traffic-engendered smog, and the ducts of ventilation systems all strip ions from the air.
As a result, we suffer not only the direct toxic effect of pollutants we generate but also long continued exposure to air in which the normal total ion concentration of about 2,000 - 3,000 per cubic centimeter (as found in clean country air) is reduced to barely detectable levels. Headache, somnolence, loss of attention, and general discomfort are just some of the initial reactions to air ion depletion.
Treatment of Disease with Ions As noted in the book, The Ion Effect, by Fred Soyka, electronic negative ion generators have been used for the treatment of migraines, bedsores, allergies, asthma, catarrh, hay fever, eczema, burns, emphysema, and even as a substitute for tranquilizers. It was discovered that negative ions lowers serotonin in the body, and this explains why people tend to feel more alert, stable, and energized in their presence. Dr. Kreuger found that bacteria, staphylococci, and fungi growth is halted in the presence of negative ions, which explains the healing side effect. Dr. I. Kornblueh mounted experiments at the Northeastern Hospital, U. of Penn. Graduate Hospital, and at the Frankford Hospital in Philadelphia where he was able to report that 63 % of patients suffering from hay fever or bronchial asthma "have experienced partial or total relief" from negative ion therapy. Positive ions, on the other hand (from Russian studies), make breathing more difficult.
Ion and Ozone Synergy Russian studies have also indicated that "atmospheric ozone and ions are the vehicles of freshness". In studies at the Academy of Medical Sciences, Drs. Gurbernskii and Dmitriev who report "that conditioned air causes employees working in office buildings to complain of headaches, weakness, a general poor feeling, oxygen deprivation, and leads to increased illness, rapid fatigue, and a reduction of the capacity to work."
They also note that "in addition, the number of colds, rheumatism, severe catarrh of the upper breathing passages, and cardio-vascular disorders significantly increased" with conditioned air even in the absence of indoor air pollution.
Ozone-Ion Complex fights Sick Building Syndrome Tests were done with less than .01 ppm of ozone reveal that "the levels of oxygen in the blood increase relatively quickly and remain at a high level for the duration of the experiment." They conclude by stating that "atmospheric ozone has a positive effect on animals and people. It is important to note its positive effect on the breathing system, blood composition, arterial pressure, immune system, general feeling of well-being, and mental and physical work capability." They note further that "the ozone-ion complex is a necessary component of fresh air that gives it a curative effect."
If that isn't enough, we find that in the journal Priroda (1976, No.9, p. 26), the above researchers report that, with tests of 0.005 to 0.02 ppm of ozone for 2-5 months, "an increase in the resistance to cold, to the presence of toxic substances, and to anemia was discovered." In addition, they discovered an increase in hemoglobin and quantity of red blood corpuscles as well. The same article refers to the decrease in complaints of stuffiness (3.8 times less compliants) and 44% more positive remarks for an average of 0.0075 ppm (less than 0.01 ppm) of ozone.
Artificially Add Ions and Ozone The researchers conclude, "After analyzing the composition of air in the internal environment of a person's dwelling in all sorts of buildings, it is possible to conclude that the optimum situation is a set of complex factors (ozone and ionized regime...) which, evidently, in the future will be necessary to artificially introduce into air conditioning systems. Without this favorable effect the air will be lacking."
Precisely reproducing quantities of ozone and ions found in fresh air is the best answer to revitalizing the home and office since people spend on the average 90% of their time indoors, often with windows that are sealed shut.

Oxygen Therapy Blass: ITS DEVELOPMENT INTO A COMPLETE, UNIFORM TREATMENT OF DISEASE IN ALL ITS FORMS KNOWN IN THE ANIMAL KINGDOM
by Dr. F. M. Eugene Blass Leading Physician, Homoeopath, Naturopath and Originator of Oxygen Therapy Blass
When people are suffering of so-called chronic, incurable ills which under medical care grow from bad to worse, and the medical men say "good night", as was actually the case with me, they rarely get the chance to employ practical common sense in the health of their own bodies.
As it happened, I was an experienced combustion engineer, inventor and revolutionist, and personally designed the ovens in the combustion industry in the USA and Germany. In 1922, early in my career, I was doomed by the scientific "healers" and declared virtually hopeless, ready for the undertaker. So far, I have cheated the writer of the last paper (death certificate) and the undertaker of their chance, and they will have to wait a long time for it. (Editor's Note: They did wait a long time, until 1967, when Dr. Blass, at the age of 87, was mercilessly attacked and killed in front of his home by unknown assailants.)
I will not give you my life story, for most people will not believe it!
Here stands a man who suffered the tortures of the medical school, and holds them responsible for the hardships I had to endure. I am now a live-wire, a vigorous example in contrast to their supposedly doomed man of 1922. I tried many other healing methods in vain till I quit them all. At least this suffering of forty years, and the resulting study of life, health, ailing and healing, brought about something of good for me and for others ailing, namely: A NEW LIGHT IN THE DARK!!! A NEW ROAD TO HEALTH AND HAPPINESS!! A SURE SANE DEPENDABLE METHOD OF HEALING , USABLE BY EVERYONE!!
Every creature having its own life (parasites excluded), if ailing, finds in this new method the sure road to health.
The fundamental element is OXYGEN, in its active or nascent state, also called OZONE. As a rule it is not inhaled but taken through the digestive tract, mucus membranes and skin, and for this reason is bound to alkaline minerals related to our body. However, in certain cases, it is also inhaled.
As an industrial gas, combustion and distillation engineer, I look upon the human and animal body quite differently than usually is done and so developed certain basically true values for the brief explanation of the words: LIFE, HEALTH, DISEASE, HEALING and OXIDATION.
LIFE: All animal, plant and mineral life is the result of perfect oxidation.
HEALTH: Health expresses a pure body, in which every organ is intact and performs its allotted function 100%, thus creating, through normal digestion, perfect and pure vital fluids to maintain the cellular construction of the body in a good healthy condition.
DISEASE: Disease expresses an unhealthy body filled with impurities, unable to maintain itself in a healthy state regardless of the name of the disease. No matter how many signs or symptoms may appear, I know only that it is a healthy or dis-eased body.
HEALING: Healing is the restoration of HEALTH, without destroying organs, cells, etc. through operation, poison, burning by x-ray or radium rays, etc., but solely through the natural constituents (elements) of a healthy body and non-poisonous agents obtained from the plant and mineral kingdoms. (I believe that through oxidation two kingdoms maintain the third one, and vice versa, which means the animal kingdom lives naturally on the products of the plant and mineral kingdoms, while the plant kingdom takes its food from both the mineral and animal kingdoms, and the mineral kingdom is maintained by the animal and plant kingdoms; all through oxidation, and this is the true reason that LIFE on earth will never cease as long as a healthy oxidation is maintained, both personally and environmentally, and, of course, planetarily.)
OXIDATION: Oxidation is the true source of PHYSICAL LIFE (True Life is Health), impaired oxidation is disease, cessation of oxidation is death. This holds good for the three kingdoms on earth: in fact, for the whole Universe. The proof: a healthy body is warm, full of vigor, radiant energy, magnetism, beauty and power. An unhealthy body lacks all these aspects, at least partly, according to the bodily condition. The dead body lacks everything. It is cold, lifeless, pale and goes immediately into decay. It will become then, through oxidation, replenishment for the other two kingdoms which formerly supported it.
Compare these basic rules with the stimulation methods of "Healing Arts" currently in vogue. From the viewpoint of my simple definition of LIFE, HEALTH, AILING, and HEALING, the thinking reader should be able to compare the various theories and practices employed by the different "healing arts". The thoughtful student of these systems must reach the conclusion that none of them actually attacks or eliminates the cause of disease, but through stimulation actually unnecessarily saps the vitality of an already weakened and diseased body.
Now let us consider the methods in common use:
1). ALLOPATHY: Orthodox School of Medicine, M.D. - Employs poisonous drugs to counteract, deaden the pain of and suppress the symptoms of the body. It overlooks the fact entirely that every sick body contains poisonous waste mater which obviously cannot be eliminated by the addition of more poison. Encumbered by the poisonous waste matter, normalization of the vital fluids thereby becomes utterly impossible and the "poison(s)" used as the "medicine" only serves to aggravate the cause and suffering even though there may be apparent improvement for a time. The use of poison always brings deplorable after-effects, and most so-called chronic and incurable ills have their beginning therein, because they result in a slow but sure breakdown of the cellular structure of the body. These later are recognized as physical and mental symptoms whose signs and names are legion. Injections of vaccines, serums and anti-toxins or any other foreign and poisonous matter bring results similar to those produced by drugs. Drugs cannot purify the body, nor normalize the vital fluids.
2). HOMOEOPATHY: This healing art started in 1844, three years before the Allopathic Medical Profession (AMA). Homoeopathy has practically been outlegislated by the influence of the Allopaths in this country. This art is not as dangerous or injurious in its results on the patient. However, it must also be classified as a stimulating method. Poison remains poison no matter how modified. It can never perform the essential steps in healing: namely purification, elimination, normalization and repair.
3). OSTEOPATHY: does not produce the pernicious effects that characterize the older systems mentioned; but its results are also only those of stimulation. It cannot normalize the vital fluids. Hence, it cannot be called a true healing method. Their founder, Andrew Still, truly recognized the basis of all disease, but in the years following, the message of the founder has virtually been lost in side issues and compromises.
4). CHIROPRACTIC: belongs in the same category as osteopathy, usually harmless and at times helpful, but it cannot effect a permanent cure in organic ailments. Under certain conditions it is entirely useless, since the true cause of dislocated vertebrae, etc., is the undernourishment of muscles, ligaments and the various organs. This can only be corrected through the normalization of the process of bodily maintenance.
5). NATUROPATHY: as known and practiced thus far, includes many and various methods. It is as yet not a complete therapy of itself, as is willingly admitted by its exponents, although it has, beyond a doubt, so far produced the best results. The underlying causes of the worst ailments cannot be radically removed merely by fasting, uses of cold water and natural living, nor can the vital fluids be normalized thereby, to the point essential to the possession of vigorous, radiant health. My new method should be considered as the missing link to making it a complete success.
I will not describe nor criticize in detail the various practices employed by these systems, and since argumentation is useless, we should at all times be guided solely by facts and logical reasoning. I wish to present here an outline of the basically sound and never-failing principles upon which my new healing method is founded. Later, I shall describe and explain and evidence of the absolute integrity of OXYGEN THERAPY BLASS.
As already stated, I claim that OXIDATION is the source of Life and Health - the mainspring of beauty, vitality, power, energy, heat, electricity, and even of magnetic personality and the happiness of the individual. The entire cellular structure is maintained by means of oxidation. When the cells wear out, they must be broken down and replaced by new ones; the rebuilding process keeps pace with the tearing down only when the oxidation is adequate, and this is only possible when the constituency of the vital fluids is normal.
Ordinarily we inhale, according to atmospheric conditions, about 20% molecular oxygen with the air through the activity of the lungs. In order to fully utilize this oxygen in the process of oxidation, it is imperative that the vital fluids be efficient carriers of this element. If these fluids are deficient in the inorganic minerals which are contained in the wholesome drinking water, or in the organic minerals supplied by use of natural organic food, they fall below the normal standard.
The fluids may be further impaired in quality by the use of poisonous or foreign matter. The result is that oxidation is hampered and disease inevitably follows. Similar consequences come from inhalation of air which is filled with poisonous gasses and impurities. The recognizable results of an insufficient oxidation, either because of a lack of minerals or oxygen, or because of the presence of foreign matter in the blood stream, are the symptoms which bear the imposing nomenclature of modern "dis-ease". the different kinds of parasites, which are the "germs" commonly blamed for the creation of these various symptoms, find food and lodging in the diseased soil which accumulates in the body but, logically, are not the cause of disease. A clean habitation will not tolerate such hospitality and normal vital fluids constitute the best insurance against sickness.
The body is not without a barometer which quickly indicates its condition. As long as oxidation is carried on to the extent necessary to maintain the tearing down and rebuilding processes of all parts of the cellular structure, the chemical constituency of blood and tissue is predominantly alkaline; as soon as oxidation is lacking they become increasingly acid and the percentage of acid gauges very accurately the state of vitality of the individual.
A parallel indication of health is to be recognized in the quantity and quality of the red blood corpuscles and the lymphatic fluids. The more nearly perfect the oxidation process, the purer the blood stream and the nearer to normal the glandular activity must be.
Vitality and vigor of mind, as well as body, are dependent on this essential process, which can be greatly enhanced through the use of OXYGEN THERAPY BLASS. This is the real "Fountain of Youth" which many altruistic philosophers have sought for centuries. Everyone may enjoy its blessings and regain that precious boon: TRUE HEALTH!!!
The Structure of Water Complimentary Healing - Energy Series
Water is a polar molecule having a positively charged side where the two hydrogen atoms are found and a negatively charged end where the oxygen atom is located. The angle between the two hydrogen atoms with respect to the single large oxygen atom is 105 degrees. This unique polarized structure of the water molecule allows it to create hydrogen bonding between various water molecules, much like small magnets are linked together with the alternative north and south poles attracted to each other.
Water then forms clusters of charged molecules which form distinct structures and can store information. In fact, water can be viewed as a large liquid crystal analogous to the liquid crystals which are found on a digital wrist watch display. This hydrogen bonding of water creates it unique characteristics important for life such as its surface tension, its heat storage capacity, and its greatest density at 4 degrees centigrade so that ice actually floats on water at 0 degrees centigrade.
More importantly, within the structured bonding of water molecules, information important for living systems can be stored. Water molecule structured patterns constantly change yet form resonances which can be determined with sophisticated modern infared spectroscopy to determine the cluster structures within the water.
Electrically alive water has unique information structures imbedded within the living water matrix which in turn affect living systems when people drink such water. This water is created by various means including magnetics and other structuring approaches. Indeed, water has a memory which has been demonstrated by Dr. Jacques Benveniste, who showed that water, even at levels where no physical molecules of the original substance are still present, continues, to have biologically active capacities and can effect cells as well as isolated physiological systems.
Miracles of Water - Amazing Secrets for Health & Wellness excerpts taken from "Your Body's Many Cries for Water" by Fereydoon Batmanghelidj 1995
Cure #1: Water prevents and cures heartburn. Heartburn is a signal of water shortage in the upper part of the gastrointestinal tract. It is a major thirst signal of the human body. The use of antacids or tablet medications in the treatment of this pain does not correct dehydration, and the body continues to suffer as a result of its water shortage.
Cure #2: Water prevents and cures arthritis. Rheumatoid joint pain - arthritis - is a signal of water shortage in the painful joint. It can affect the young as well as the old. The use of painkillers does not cure the problem, but exposes the person to further damage from pain medications. Intake of water and small amounts of salt will cure this problem.
Cure #3: Water prevents and cures back pain. Low back pain and ankylosing arthritis of the spine are signs of water shortage in the spinal column and discs - the water cushions that support the weight of the body. These conditions should be treated with increased water intake. Not a commercial treatment, but a very effective one.
Cure #4: Water prevents and cures angina. Heart pain - angina - is a sign of water shortage in the heart/lung axis. It should be treated with increased water intake until the patient is free of pain and independent of medications. Medical supervision is prudent. However, increased water intake is angina's cure.
Cure #5: Water prevents and cures migraines. Migraine headache is a sign of water need by the brain and the eyes. It will totally clear up if dehydration is prevented from establishing in the body. The type of dehydration that causes migraine might eventually cause inflammation of the back of the eye and possibly loss of eyesight.
Cure #6: Water prevents and cures colitis. Colitis pain is a signal of water shortage in the large gut. It is associated with constipation because the large intestine constricts to squeeze the last drop of water from the excrements - thus the lack of water lubrication.
Cure #7: Water and salt prevent and cure asthma. Asthma, which also affects 14 million children and kills several thousand of them every year, is a complication of dehydration in the body. It is caused by the drought management programs of the body. In asthma free passage of air is obstructed so that water does not leave the body in the form of vapor - the winter steam. Increased water intake will prevent asthma attacks. Asthmatics need also to take more salt to break the mucus plugs in the lungs that obstruct the free flow of air in an out of the air sacs.
Cure #8: Water prevents and cures high blood pressure. Hypertension is a state of adaptation of the body to a generalized drought, when there is not enough water to fill all the blood vessels that diffuse water into vital cells. As part of the mechanism of reverse osmosis when water from the blood serum is filtered and injected into important cells through minute holes in their membranes, extra pressure is needed for the "injection process." Just as we inject I.V. 'water' in hospitals, so the body injects water into tens of trillions of cells all at the same time. Water and some salt intake will bring blood pressure back to normal!
Cure #9: Water prevents and cures early adult-onset diabetes. Adult-onset diabetes is another adaptive state to severe dehydration of the human body. To have adequate water in circulation and for the brain's priority water needs, the release of insulin is inhibited to prevent insulin from pushing water into all body cells. In diabetes, only some cells get survival rations of water. Water and some salt will reverse adult-onset diabetes in its early stages.
Cure #10: Water lowers blood cholesterol. High cholesterol levels are an indicator of early drought management by the body. Cholesterol is a claylike material that is poured in the gaps of some cell membranes to safeguard them against losing their vital water content to the osmotically more powerful blood circulating in their vicinity. Cholesterol, apart from being used to manufacture nerve cell membranes and hormones, is also used as a "shield" against water taxation of other vital cells that would normally exchange water through their cell membranes.
Cure #11: Water cures depression, loss of libido, chronic fatigue syndrome, lupus, multiple sclerosis, and muscular dystrophy. These conditions are caused by prolonged chronic dehydration. They will clear up once the body becomes well and regularly hydrated. In these conditions, exercising one's muscles should be part of the treatment program.
Cryptosporidium - What you should know about it. by Fred Pontius in Water Technology September 1994
Cryptosporidium, first described in 1907, wasn't recognized as a cause of human illness until 1976. It's a protozoan parasite that can infect a variety of animals. At least four species are recognized; with Cryptosporidium parvum (C. parvum) primarily responsible for clinical illness in humans and animals.
In the environment, Cryptosporidium exists as a resilient, infectious, round oocyst about 4 to 6 microns in diameter. The oocyst is the "suitcase" for the infectious material inside. When ingested in drinking water, oocysts pass through the stomach into the small intestine. The oocysts split open, releasing sporozoites which invade the cells lining in the gastrointestinal tract. Infested cells lining the intestine appear normal, but their ability to absorb water and nutrients is severely impaired.
Cryptosporidium is widespread in the environment. Oocysts have been found in rivers and streams, lakes and reservoirs, raw and treated sewage, and treated surface water. Once introduced into water, the oocyst can survive for weeks even at low temperatures. The organism has been found in many domestic animals and wildlife.
Cryptosporidium may not necessarily be found in every surface water supply and when the organism is found in a particular supply concentrations can vary greatly. All surface water supplies are at risk for contamination, though some sources may be at greater risk than others. Groundwater is typically free from the oocysts because of the filtering action of soil, but groundwater under direct influence of surface water is susceptible to contamination.
Disease symptoms of Cryptosporidiosis include diarrhea, abdominal cramps, nausea, occasional vomiting and low grade fever. Typically symptoms last 10-14 days, may linger off and on up to 30 days and can persist for extended periods. Some people infected as a result of an outbreak in Milwaukee, WI, in April 1993, were still experiencing disease symptoms one year later. The disease can be fatal for immunosuppressed people. In severe cases, the disease can develop into a prolonged, life-threatening cholera-like illness.
The number of oocysts that must be ingested to cause infection in humans isn't known. Studies indicate that as few as 10 or even less than 10 oocysts, can be infectious to humans, but additional studies are being conducted by the EPA.
Tests to detect Cryptosporidium are difficult procedures and few appropriately trained personnel are available to conduct them. Interpreting the public health significance of monitoring data is equally difficult. An absence of oocysts doesn't mean they were never present or never will be present.
Cryptosporidium oocysts resist chlorinating. Disinfecting of C. parvum oocysts with chlorine or monochloramine at typical treatment concentrations has almost no effect, even after several hours contact time, and chlorine dioxide has been only somewhat effective. Ozone is the most effective disinfectant against C. parvum oocysts; it can inactivate the oocysts completely if applied properly. Filtration and watershed protection are the only conventional control practices available. Greater than 97 percent removal of oocysts can be achieved with proper coagulation and filtration. Turbidity is traditionally used to monitor filter performance, but it's a poor indicator of oocyst removal, particularly for source waters with turbidity levels less than 5 NTU's. Municipal filtration plants should have an operational turbidity goal of less than 0.1 NTU to effectively remove oocysts.
Cryptosporidium isn't currently regulated but is on the U.S. EPA's drinking water priority list for possible regulation.
An authorized practitioner should monitor anyone with a Pacemaker; an organ transplant; or who uses prescription drugs; or pregnant women.
