A common type of air purifier called an ozonator/ionizer air purifier can be used in a special way to add extra oxygen to your body.  It is a simple way to enhance your health.  Most everyone can use more oxygen.  For details about this, read Oxygen on this website.


I highly recommend this as part of every nutritional balancing program.  Most people tolerate the ozone very well.  A few have lung irritation from it, but in almost all instances, they solve this by just turning the ozone level down on the machine.




The air ozonator/ionizer is a small machine that converts some of the oxygen in the room (O2) to ozone or O3.  This is a less stable form of oxygen, but one that our bodies can utilize. 

As the machine converts some of the oxygen in the room to ozone, more oxygen from other rooms or from outside the home is drawn into the bedroom to maintain the normal oxygen content of the air.  This means that the total oxygen content of the room increases to a significant degree as a combination of 02 and 03.

By breathing this all night every night, and during the day when you are at home, you can significantly increase the amount of oxygen getting into your body.

You can also leave the machine on all day, and it will clean and help oxygenate the air in your bedroom and entire home all day, as well.




              The manufacturer of the ozone air purifier may suggest placing the machine in the middle of the home.  However, to obtain the most oxygen possible requires a different placement of the machine.  For the best effect, do the following:


1. Place the air machine in your bedroom.  This way, during the night while asleep, you will breathe a significant amount of extra oxygen.  Most people breathe the deepest while they sleep.  This is one reason why people snore, as they are breathing heavily. 


2. Place the air machine high up, such as on a shelf or bookcase high off the ground.  This helps circulate the ozone better.


3. Turn the ozone control of the machine to about halfway or less if you find it irritating.  This will usually be plenty of ozone.  If you turn it up too much, you may not like the smell of the ozone, which has a slightly acrid smell for some people.  It can also be irritating.


4. Turn the fan control to a low setting if you wish.  This way it wonÕt make too much noise that might interfere with sleep.  A higher fan speed is fine, however.


            5. I would leave the bedroom door open a little, or open a window a little.


6. The machine can stay on all day.


7. Do this forever to increase your intake of oxygen.


 NOTE: This is different from the instructions that come with most ozonator/ionizer air machines.  They usually do not recommend placing the unit in the bedroom.  However, their instructions are designed for the purpose of using the machine mainly to reduce odors in the home.




The only problems we have encountered are:


1. Smell.  Ozone has a slightly acrid, fresh smell.  Most people hardly notice it.  Some people, however, do not like the smell.  Turn the machine down a little if it really bothers you.  However, it is very helpful for most people, as explained above, so, if possible, put up with the odor.


2. Healing reactions.  Rarely, someone reports that the machine causes a little lung irritation.  In all of these cases, so far, this is actually a healing reaction.  The person has a slight chronic bronchial infection and the ozone plus extra oxygen begins a healing reaction in the bronchial tubes that will cause you to cough or feel some irritation.  You can turn down the ozone control if this occurs.

The extra oxygen will also heal other infections in your body.  One client reported that the first night she used the machine she awoke in the morning and her eyes were puffy.  Most likely this was a healing reaction.  The problem went away in one day, and she has had no further problems.


3. Sensitivity to ozone.  It is possible that someone could be sensitive to ozone, but I have not seen it.  If your lungs are irritated by the ozone, just decrease the ozone level a little.  Most people who are sensitive to ozone, which are very few, develop a tolerance for the machine within a few days.


Dangers of ozone.  I am aware of the dangers of ozone, and that the state of California does not permit the sale of ozonators in California because they claim they are somehow dangerous.

I believe there is confusion because ozone in America is considered an air pollutant because it rises when the particulates in the air increase.  However, I believe the rise in the ozone is actually a reaction of the air to the particulate pollution.

It is true that too much ozone is irritating to the lungs.  However, to call ozone a poison and forbid the sale of ozonators is very incorrect, in my view.

            4. Oxidant problems. Ozone is a potent oxidizing agent.  This leads some people to think that breathing a little ozone will cause oxidant damage to the body.  We have not observed this.

One reason for this is that I also recommend a very mineral-rich diet.  A diet rich in cooked vegetables will be very rich in natural anti-oxidants that protect the body from oxidant damage.


5. Sensitivity of some types of rubber to ozone. Ozone will eventually degrade some types of rubber.  I have not found this to be a problem in the bedroom, as most people do not keep rubber products there. 




Negative ions are negatively charged particles.  The ozonator/ionizer machine also produces them.  When they combine with dust and dirt in the home, the negative charge of the ions causes the dirt and other particles to fall to the floor so they do not float in the air.

This is another excellent benefit of this machine.  It is another way to purify the air in home without needing a filter.  The negative ions and the ozone make an excellent combination to clean up the air in the home.

Extra negative ions are helpful for all indoor environments.  The reason is that while they are produced naturally out of doors, they are destroyed rather quickly indoors due to contact with metallic air ducts, electrical devices and more.  For this reason, most indoor air is low in negative ions.  It does not matter if one lives in the city or in the rural areas.


The healing properties of negative ions.  Many studies show that negative ions have subtle positive effects upon our bodies that are not well understood.  They appear to help relax the nervous system, improve mood, and have other benefits as well.




An ozonator/ionizer machine has many other uses that can make owning one very worthwhile.  Among the most important are:


1. Fumigating and disinfecting your entire house, or a room, an automobile, or perhaps air ducts.  For example, if one has had a flood or mold problem, leaving the unit closed up in the room or area for a week or more can kill mold without the need for chemicals that are often as toxic as the mold itself.

In a sickroom or hospital, running the machine will help disinfect everything in the room, including equipment, to reduce the possibility of spreading germs from one person to another.  Ozone will gently penetrate into all cracks and crevices in the room, even under sheets and blankets, to help kill germs of all kinds. 

One can literally fumigate the room in a totally harmless way by locking the machine in a room and turning it up to full strength and leaving it there for a few days, if needed.  People and animals should stay out of the room during this time, as the ozone level will be too high for comfort.  Similarly, one can fumigate an automobile or any other similar space by simply setting up the machine and letting it run in the area for a day or more.

I have used this machine to get rid of new car odors, pet odors, formaldehyde odor in new furniture, new carpeting odor and other types of chemical smells. The ozone is excellent because it gently penetrates deeply into synthetic fabrics and other odor-causing materials.

This is much better than covering up odors with chemical scents.  The ozone actually breaks down the chemicals and when the job is done, no chemical residue from the ozone remains.


2. In theory, the machine could be used to generate ozone that could be added to a sauna, to drinking water, to a bath, or for other purposes.  Ozone is a fascinating substance to oxygenate the body, deodorize and kill all manner of germs, and for other purposes.

The machine we recommend is not designed for these extra purposes, but it could be adapted, if needed, by simply placing a large funnel over the front of the machine.  Connect the narrow end of the funnel to a rubber or plastic tube that runs into the bath water or drinking water.




There are many brands of ozonator-ionizer units.  Prices vary, and I am not sure why, since the units often appear to be constructed in a similar way.  Two brands that seem good and are reasonably priced are:

Atlas 300A ozonator/ionizer unit.  Click here to view it.

Breathe Fresh.  This one is less expensive than the Atlas unit and seems to be built just as well.




1. Filter. The air filter in the back of the unit must be washed out in plain water once every month or every few months to keep it functioning properly.  It is easy to remove by loosening a few screws.  I am told not to wash the filter with soap, as it might clog it.  Just use plain water.  Eventually, it will need replacing.


2. Ozone plates.  Ozone is produced in these machines with one or two ceramic plates with a wire screen attached to them.  These plates must be removed and cleaned with simple water and soap every few months, as they will build up some dust and dirt, and can stop functioning properly.

To remove them, first remove the air filter.  Then gently pull out the plates to clean them.  Be sure to return them to the unit in exactly the same way they were removed.  In a few years, the ceramic plates may begin to crack and can be replaced inexpensively.


3. General dusting.  Because the machines produce a lot of negative ions, they may attract dust and dirt.  Periodically check and dust off the machine or wash the case with a little water and soap, as needed.


Other maintenance.  The fan motors need oil, at times.  Otherwise they may stop working.  Parts are available for these machines via the internet.
