In which diseases is ozone used meaningfully?

There are a number of diseases that can be positively influenced or even cured by ozone therapy. This is proven by numerous scientific publications. In general, medical ozone is included in addition to other therapies; it belongs to the field of complementary medicine.

Your doctor will be pleased to inform you about the diseases in which ozone therapy, which by the way is a low-risk form of therapy, can be used effectively and successfully. However, as with all other forms of therapy, ozone therapy does not guarantee a guaranteed success from the outset.

The arterial circulatory disorders, for the u.a. Cold feeling in the legs or pain after only short walking distances (intermittent claudication) are alarming signs, have been the classic area of application of ozone therapy for almost five decades. Numerous smaller studies prove the successes. Medical ozone is used in addition to and in combination with other complementary medical and conventional medical treatment procedures.

Occupational stress situations or excessive mental and physical tension are particularly accessible to ozone treatment. The activation of the cell metabolism of the red and white blood cells leads to an improvement of the general condition and causes a general revitalization. The competitive athlete benefits equally from this. Although not the maximum performance improves, but the performance in the endurance phase, ie below the maximum power range. In addition, the regeneration phase in endurance sports is measurably shortened.

The older patient responds very well to ozone therapy because it uses all the properties of medical ozone
The improved supply of the organism with oxygen, the mobilization of the immune system and the activation of the body's own antioxidants and radical scavengers.

Positive Cerebral circulatory disorders, which are often characterized by poor concentration, general inefficiency, insecurity when walking, and dizziness, are likely to affect
to make noticable.

In addition to other complementary medical measures, medical ozone can also be used preventively and contributes to a significant increase in the quality of life.

Age-related circulatory disorders also affect the organ of vision with atrophic and degenerative changes. Known is the "age-related macular degeneration" in the retina center - the site of the sharpest vision. If necessary, the effects on the optic nerve can be found in different degrees of severity of so-called optic atrophy.

A study from the University Eye Hospital Siena and the findings from the practice show after the ozone autologous blood treatment performance improvements that last six to eight months. Continuous treatments can lead to further improvement or to a deterioration in visual performance.

The ozone autologous blood treatment or rectal insufflation can be useful as a biological adjunctive therapy for cancers. The immune-activating effect of the low-dose ozone is exploited: immune cells - such as lymphocytes, helper cells, suppressor cells, natural killer cells - are activated by the ozone reaction and respond to the production of their messengers, the cytokines, which are e.g. the interferons belong. Induction and activation of the cellular antioxidants and radical scavengers of healthy cells and organs counteract the excess of reactive and aggressive oxygen radicals and build up cell protection.

The fungus and bactericidal effect of ozone has been used successfully in drinking water treatment worldwide for more than 100 years. It makes medical ozone an effective therapeutic agent for combating persistent skin fungi, especially additionally bacterially infected athlete's foot fungus, fungal affections on the trunk of the body or mucous membrane fungi.

The local treatment of infected wounds, such as those caused by bedsores (decubitus), in leg ulcers (Ulcus cruris), as diabetic gangrene or in wound healing disorders easily occur, belongs to the classic field of application of medical ozone. One first uses the disinfecting effect of the ozone, i. the bacteria and fungal killers to get a germ-free and clean wound. Low concentrations subsequently serve for improved wound healing.

In inflammatory intestinal diseases, local ozone administration in the form of bowel insufflation, preferably in stage 1, has proved to be useful. In most cases, a treatment series with ten individual treatments is sufficient. In 10% of patients, several series of treatments are required (from a proctitis study with 248 patients).

Herpes simplex (cold sores), herpes zoster (shingles): both herpes types are virus-related. Lip herpes, a frequently recurring, very annoying condition, is highly successful with the various forms of ozone therapy, in addition to other methods.

For the Shingles the complementary (complementary) use of ozone is useful, both locally with the help of ozone water compresses and in the form of the ozone autologous blood treatment.

Inflammatory liver diseases are among the classic applications of medical ozone. While the hepatitis A virus (HVA = hepatitis virus A) is relatively unproblematic to treat and completely heals, the B-form (HVB = hepatitis virus B) often changes into the chronic form.

In addition to conventional medical measures, the ozone autologous blood infusion is just as suitable as the rectal administration of ozone-oxygen mixtures. This also applies to the treatment of hepatitis C, which is usually diagnosed as a chronic liver disease due to the usually years of incubation. Dividing the inflammatory joint diseases in 3 stages, so are particularly stage 1 and 2, that is, without heavy bone deformation, a medical ozone application accessible.

This concerns the gonarthrosis or the activated osteoarthritis of knee and shoulder joints. Intra-articular ozone injections are useful in addition to a conventional basic medical treatment, especially for specific movement-therapeutic measures. The anti-inflammatory effect of ozone is used as well as immunomodulation and activation
of cartilage cell metabolism.

The rheumatic type group includes various painful diseases of the skeletal or muscular system, sometimes with functional limitations. In general, the use of medical ozone here can only be understood as a complementary measure to a basic therapy and in addition to corresponding physical therapies. In rheumatoid arthritis (chronic polyarthritis) experience shows a useful treatment supplement by medical ozone in the form of extracorporeal blood treatment in the relapse-free phases.

The immunomodulatory properties of ozone and the anti-inflammatory effect are the underlying principle of action. Small ozone concentrations and ozone levels are complementary for muscle tension, chronic muscle pain, trigger points ... used, often combined with neural therapy and acupuncture. Large-scale studies on the treatment of herniated discs have been published internationally in the last 7 years: Intradiscal injections (injections into the intervertebral disc), of course, can only be performed by specialists, screen-controlled.
