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
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
All animal, plant and mineral life is the result of perfect oxidation.
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
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 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
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
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.
1a). SURGERY AND
OPERATIONS which remove
organs, either wholly or in part, are unable to purify the body or normalize
the vital fluids. They not only lower the vitality, cause loss of blood
and introduce poisonous matter into the system in the course of the operation,
but they remove parts of the body which are indispensable to its functioning
as a whole. Consequently, they cannot possibly be considered as healing
measures but aggravate the case and in many instances render complete recovery
1b). POWERFUL X-RAYS AND RADIUM
RAYS (note: chemotherapy & radiation therapy) cannot purify the body
nor create healthy blood; they can only burn the remaining healthy tissues.
Therefore, do more harm than good and cannot be recognized as helpful or
healing methods. Other methods used by Allopaths and Surgeons may be
considered as business expedients, and consequently are valueless from a
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.
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.
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
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.
(Editor's Note: Here Dr. Blass is
referring to simple processes of the human body, long since forgotten, now
misunderstood and misnomered "the peroxidation destructive free radical
syndrome". As recently mentioned by Professor Halliwell of the the University of
London, in his scientific paper entitled:
"Oxygen Radicals: A Commonsense Look
at Their Nature and Medical Importance" in Medical Biology 62:71-77, 1984
Initiation of peroxidation in a membrane of
polyunsaturated fatty acid is due to the attack of any species that can 'pull
off' a hydrogen atom from one of the - CH2 - groups in the
carbon chain. Hydroxyl radical and possibly HO2 can do this,
but H2O2 and O2 cannot.
Hence O2 does not initiate
In speaking of singlet oxygen, Professor
Its formation in O2 - generating systems has
often been proposed but clear-cut evidence for a damaging role of singlet oxygen
in such systems has not been obtained.
Thus evidence that a toxin increases lipid
peroxidation in vivo does not prove the sequence of events:
toxin - lipid peroxidation - damage,
but is equally explained by the sequence
toxin - cell damage or death - lipid
Now back to Dr. Blass.)
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
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
