International Association For Oxygen Therapy Mr. Ed McCabe is an
investigative journalist and leading international author,
speaker, and expert on the subject of oxygen therapies. His
ongoing involvement with advanced healing modalities encompasses
a span of over 25 years. He holds a degree in Educational Media
from the University of Massachusetts, and he became expert on the
subject of oxygen therapies since focusing solely upon them as a
research journalist during 7 years of intensive study,
investigation, experimentation, interviews, and travel.
Although several oxygen therapies have been in use for over 100
years, Mr. McCabe is the only person to date who has undertaken a
worldwide investigation and publication of their effectiveness.
To do this, he interviewes thousands of patients and hundreds of
doctors, and regularly visits many of the major oxygen therapy
centers worldwide.Although oxygen therapies are stated by many
experts to be highly effective, before Mr. McCabe's published
works and his extensive lecturing, these therapies remained
mostly unknown to the general public, and the professional
organizations promoting them were in danger of floundering. The
patents on most of the oxygen therapies had expired years ago, so
there had been little interest by the pharmaceutical houses and
the media in promoting them, and almost no advertising had been
done to let people know of their existence. Ed McCabe has daily
spent the last 7 years of his life actively changing this
situation in order to lessen the all too common and unnecessary
suffering of people with serious diseases. The legion of converts
to these therapies grows daily, and the manufacturers and
professional organizations surrounding them are now flourishing,
in large part because of Mr. McCabe's focusing the
public's attention on them. Mr. McCabe has publications,
tapes, and videos which have over 40 distributors in seven
countries, including the largest U.S. health book distributors.
Now in its 40th printing, his bestselling classic book
"Oxygen Therapies" was the first publication in history
to detail all known ways of using special forms of oxygen to
oxygenate the body. Now millions know that the use of oxygen
therapies is of prime importance in order to maintain health and
in the treatment of disease.
Mr. McCabe writes a syndicated newspaper column and numerous
national magazine articles appearing in "Aids Patient
Care," "Health Freedom News," "Health
Consciousness," "Explore!," and "New
Perspectives" magazines. He has been a very popular guest on
over 1,050+ radio and television stations and speaking platforms
in the U.S., England, Scotland, Australia, Canada, Mexico, and
New Zealand, including the U.S.'s "Morey Povich"
national television talk show on April 21st, 1993, which devoted
a whole show to the oxygen therapy work surrounding Mr. McCabe
and his associates.Mr. McCabe is the Executive Director of The
Foundation For The Advancement Of Oxygen Therapies, a not for
profit public service organization. The Foundation is dedicated
to oxygen therapies research, education, and the spreading of the
good news about oxygen therapies through the media. Mr. Mccabe is
also a recipient of The International Bio-Oxidative Medicine
Foundation's prestigious "Special Recognition" and
"Distinguished Speaker Awards."
ED McCABE TESTIMONY BEFORE THE NATIONAL INSTITUTE
Oxygen Therapies have been in use medically
for over 100 years. The basis of the therapies is quite simple:
Ultimately toxicity collects within the body over time. This
buildup of toxicity can have physical, emotional, and behavioral
co-factors which must also be addressed. The buildup of toxicity
within the body invites the proliferation of anaerobic disease
causing microorganisms. Oxygen therapies are used to flood the
body with active forms of oxygen. When the body becomes safely
saturated with these special forms of oxygen, it reaches a state
of purity wherein the disease microorganisms are killed, and the
underlying toxicity is oxidized and eliminated. The patient's
immune system must then be rebuilt with vitamin, mineral, and if
needed, behavioral modification and other therapies. In this way
diseases like AIDS, cancer and multiple sclerosis are being
eliminated or at least controlled.
Ozone therapy is one of the oxygen therapies. Over 5,000 medical
ozone generators have been sold in Europe and are presently in
use by as many doctors worldwide. Specific concentrations and
volumes of ozone gas made from pure oxygen are readily applied to
the body through intravenous infusions without any harm, usually
during a minimum standard treatment schedule of 21 days in a
The ozone breaks down into various oxygen subspecies which
contact anaerobic viruses, microbes, or diseased cells and
oxidize them while leaving the normal healthy cells alone. The
standard 21 day minimum treatment requirement is being challenged
by recent developments, notably in the field of ozone equipment
and other protocol refinements. Ozone therapy was used medically
by Nikola Tesla in 1900. It has been in continual use for over 50
years in the U.S., but due to our legal pressures, ozone is
presently only widely used in Europe.
When the proper protocols are followed, ozone has been proven
highly effective in the treatment - and possibly the elimination
- of over 40 common diseases. There are about 300 doctors in the
U.S. daily using some form of oxygen therapies today.Ozone
therapies are among the safest therapies ever used. One European
study of over 5.5 million treatments showed a side effect rate of
.0007%, probably among the lowest of any therapy known. Side
effects like fever and weakness are minor and temporary.
M.D.'s characterize ozone as "blatantly
non-toxic."I have kept in continual contact with 6 U.S.
MD's who, independent of each other, have collectively
reported bringing over 300 AIDS patients to HIV negative status,
including complete eradication of any secondary disease factors
such as energy loss, weight loss, diarrhea, etc. I have also
interviewed many AIDS patients who have been getting ozone
therapy on their own, and all those who followed good protocols
reported an immediate increase in energy, weight gain, and T cell
stabilization or increase in a few weeks.
The most notable of the ozone physicians to date is Dr. James
Boyce, who brought 237 AIDS patients to health, each within 30
days. His results were verified by major independent lab testing
before and after. Like most doctors in our country who have
bravely tried to help their patients with ozone therapy, Dr.
Boyce has subsequently been attacked by several government
agencies trying to put him out of business. Therefore, he cannot
appear here today due to the advice of his attorneys. However, he
has expressed a desire to work with the committee in the future.
While our country reels from the impact of AIDS, this physician,
who has the best documented track record in the country of
treating and perhaps even eliminating AIDS, now spends his days
farming instead of practicing the medicine he was so proficient
at. [Subsequently he spent 5 years in prison] Another typical
modern case is that of Dr. John Pittman from Raleigh, North
Carolina. He started using ozone in 1991 with excellent results,
but had his research project cut short when local physicians who
never heard of ozone - and didn't bother to find out anything
about it - turned him into the state medical board which asked
him to stop using ozone, since it is not FDA approved. Dr.
Pittman is also hopeful of continuing his research. The Medizone
company of New York, which holds a patent on blood ozonation, has
continually been on file with the FDA asking for permission to
begin ozone trials on AIDS patients since 1986. For six years in
a row, the FDA has told them to "go back and do even more
flawless ozone animal studies." This is in spite of the fact
that ozone therapy has been used safely on humans for over 50
Safety of application or effectiveness is not questionable among
the physicians who have personally used ozone daily for 30 years
on humans. Medizone and others are ready to begin strictly
designed and monitored human trials. And, like many U.S.
physicians I have interviewed, would have commenced clinical
trials six years ago - if not for the FDA preventing it.The
biggest problem is that in 1976 the FDA declared ozone a
"toxic gas with no medical uses" via publication in the
Federal Register. I have written that: "Printing this
statement in a publication paid for with our taxes is either a
blatant attempt at suppression of truth from the highest levels,
or one of the poorest research jobs ever done. It obviously
favors competitive drug therapies, and ignores well over 50 years
of safe and effective medical use on hundreds of thousands of
humans - backed up with medical references and clinical studies
in Switzerland, Italy, France, Germany, Australia, New Zealand,
Mexico, and the U.S."
Although legally, ozone is believed by some to be
"grandfathered" since its use in U.S. medicine predates
the existence of the FDA itself, no one has tested this position
in court. So the FDA - and the state medical agencies and boards
that take their lead from the FDA - are actively persecuting any
physician using ozone. Under these prevailing "siege"
type conditions I could get none of the U.S. doctors who have
achieved great successes with ozone therapy to come here today.
When asked to appear, the doctors all reacted in fear of the
government, fear of the loss of their licenses, and fear of being
raided and cleaned out by SWAT teams in the same way that Dr.
Jonathan Wright was treated most recently. Upon inquiry, I
commonly heard: "I'm not ready to appear."
"Don't mention my name!" "The doctor already
fled the country." "I'm scared to death they'll
take away my license." On the bright side, if immunity from
state, and federal, and agency, and medical board prosecution
could be assured, these humanitarian doctors would gladly make
available their knowledge for the public good. I stand ready to
do the same, and submit to you the attached chronological history
of U.S. medical ozone therapy to date.
Conclusion Due to the many interviews I have conducted, It is my
opinion that the AIDS problem has been solved. If we can get
ozone doctors both immunity from prosecution and funding for
clinical trials, within 90 days the only thing left to do would
be to implement the existing solution.
[After giving this testimony, Mr. McCabe stirred up a lot of
interest in the participants. The overseers were another matter.
Although he kept applying to be on the newly forming Office of
Alternative Medicine Committee, he was subsequently and
repeatedly ignored by the National Institute of Health's
Office of Alternative Medicine. Although Mr. McCabe's
testimony was sponsored by a Congressman and a Senator, the fix
was in. His letters went unanswered. - "Look like we care,
look like we let in the alternatives, but bar anyone who comes
along with any real solutions." A nice safe doctor, that
taught only slight establishment approved alternative
improvements, not cures, subsequently became the OAM
spokesperson. Drug business as usual, while people suffer and
die. While you read this, think of how many people, with how many
diseases, that could have been saved, yet died from lack of ozone
oxygen therapy since this meeting in 1992?]

version of the new events for the chronology of ozone events,
with over 120+ medical ozone references and embedded comments by
Ed McCabe is available from The Family News as a
publication.While America dies of AIDS, Tuberculosis, Cancer and
a host of other diseases, and the FDA stands before Congress and
declares as truth that "there is no evidence that ozone has
any medical benefit," and ambitious Congressmen say we
should "imprison anyone who promotes or uses ozone for 25
years as a felon," and doctors curing diseases are
railroaded into prison, and homes are broken into by government
agents seizing ozone machines, then things have gone way too far.
They are referring to us. You and me and our friends and our
right to life.
