CoVid-19: Ways to Minimize Infection – UV Radiation and Ozone

March 21, 2020.  In additional to self-quarantine, washing hands, not touching your face … what else can you do to minimize infection?

I have two recommendations:  ozone and UVb radiation are powerful disinfectants and kill bacteria, viruses, protozoa on contact.  They have been used to disinfect water, air, and surfaces for decades.

UltraViolet Radiation

UVb radiation:  UVb radiation comes from the sun and from narrow band UV light bulbs that can be purchased at Solarc Systems Incorporated in Barrie, Ontario.

For those living in southern climates, get as much sunshine as possible as this will not only help to disinfect your body surface with the UV radiation but also help your body produce Vitamin D, which is critical for your immune system.  When I say “get as much sunshine as possible” I mean do NOT use sunscreen and ideally expose as much of your body as possible (i.e more than just your face) to sunshine ideally after 1:00 pm.  Start slowly with a few minutes a day to minimize getting a sunburn.  If you do get too much sun you can use apple cider vinegar to reduce the inflammation and reduce the effects of sunburn.

Since glass can block UV radiation, sitting in front of a window and being exposed to sunshine is not going to be useful for either Vitamin D production or for disinfection.  Quartz instead of glass is used in UV bulbs as this allows the UV radiation through.

Another benefit of UV light exposure is that it helps with certain skin disorders, such as psoriasis and eczema.  Important to follow recommendations and to increase exposure slowly.  Some dermatologists offer this treatment or it can be done at home with a UV lamp from Solarc Systems or other companies.  In Canada you do not need a prescription to purchase UV lights.

Another form of UV radiation is generated by the Tesla’s violet ray tube.  It produces UV radiation and generates ozone, both of which are powerful disinfectants.  Use as directed for optimal results and check with your health care provider for possible contra-indications.

UV radiation has been demonized.  Prolonged exposure can  be dangerous but short-term exposure can be beneficial.  It is all about balance. UV radiation can help prevent covid-19 transmission by reducing contamination.  It can be used safely.

I was taught that ozone is an air pollutant and damages your lungs.  When I heard that ozone was used therapeutically to treat various health conditions including cancer I was skeptical.  I am skeptical no more as I have used various types of ozone therapy with positive results.

Here is what says about ozone therapy: Ozone therapy refers to the process of administering ozone gas into your body to treat a disease or wound. Ozone is a colorless gas made up of three atoms of oxygen (O3). It can be used to treat medical conditions by stimulating the immune system. It can also be used to disinfect and treat disease.

For more information about ozone and how to apply it read my article, The Ozone Paradox: From air pollutant to modern day medical miracle.

While you do not want to inhale ozone directly into your lungs, other forms of ozone treatments can be extremely helpful with viral, bacterial and protozoan infections by killing the bugs and by strengthening your immune system.

Medical O3 is used to disinfect and treat disease. Mechanism of actions is by inactivation of bacteria, viruses, fungi, yeast and protozoa, stimulation of oxygen metabolism, activation of the immune system.
