Scientist claims Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy reverses the aging process

Hyperbaric Medicine expert Dr. Shai Efrati, has reported in a peer-reviewed journal article published on aging-us.com that the Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy applied by his research team at the Tel Aviv University has lengthened telomeres, by more than a fifth, plus it has reduced senescent cells by more than a third, thus reversing aging at the cellular level, at least theoretically. Each time a chromosome duplicates itself the long DNA string shortens at its telomere ends. After many cell divisions the telomeres disappear and chromosomes are…

Are Oxygen and Ozone Therapies effective against COVID-19?

COVID-19 is a respiratory disease that primarily attacks the respiratory system in a similar way as other coronavirus illnesses like SARS, MERS, or even the common cold do. The disease may take a mild course with few or no symptoms, resembling other common upper respiratory diseases such as the common cold. Mild cases typically recover within two weeks, while those with severe or critical diseases may take three to six weeks to recover. Among those who have died, the time from symptom onset to death…

Oxygen Concentrators Instruction Manual for Médecins Sans Frontières

We had the pleasure to help the Biomed Manager working for the International Humanitarian Organisation Doctors Without Borders (Médecins Sans Frontières) in Sierra Leone. They are supporting the Government Hospital of Kenema, helping the local Biomedical-Engineer to keep the medical devices in function. In this mentioned hospital there are several Oxygen Concentrators that were unfortunately out of service and the hospital did not have any User or Maintenance Manual. Even tough the devices had not been sold through O2-O3, we were nonetheless able to find…

Ozone Autohemotherapy for Postherpetic Neuralgia

A new study has investigated the effect and safety of Ozone Autohemotherapy combined with pharmacological therapy in Postherpetic Neuralgia (PHN). Patients with Postherpetic Neuralgia suffer from persistent and severe breakthrough pain, which may arise from nerve changes due to virus infection or immune response. PHN is one of the most common types of neuropathic pain (NP) syndrome and is characterized by pain. Patients who recover from herpes zoster rash may be afflicted with months and years of pain. Some studies have reported that compared with…

What to expect from Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy

Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy (HBOT) consists of breathing 100% oxygen while under increased atmospheric pressure. When a patient is given 100% oxygen under pressure, hemoglobin is saturated, but the blood can be hyperoxygenated by dissolving oxygen within the plasma. The following indications are approved uses of Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy as defined by the UHMS Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy Committee: 1. Air or Gas Embolism 2. Carbon Monoxide Poisoning 3. Clostridial Myositis and Myonecrosis (Gas Gangrene) 4. Crush Injury, Compartment Syndrome and Other Acute Traumatic Ischemias 5. Decompression…

Oxygen Therapy as treatment for Alzheimer’s

Breathing oxygen at a higher-than-normal air pressure could ease some of the symptoms of Alzheimer's disease, if recent research done in mice produces the same results in humans. Mice genetically engineered to develop some human features of Alzheimer's disease showed significant reductions in physical and behavioral symptoms after 2 weeks of daily treatment with hyperbaric oxygen therapy (HBOT), the same kind of treatment used in burn injuries and carbon monoxide poisoning. This was the result that a team hailing from the University of Tel Aviv…

Ozone-Oxygen Therapy as an alternative for slipped disc surgery

Oxygen and Ozone therapy is emerging as a better treatment option than surgery for people suffering from a slipped disc due to its minimally invasive procedure and speedy recovery. Experts said the procedure, which was first tried in Europe, leaves no surgical scars on the skin and the patient can be discharged from hospital on the same day compared to surgery which takes weeks. Slipped or herniated disk is a condition when one of the discs in the spine ruptures and the gel inside leaks…

Ozone Injections for Knee Osteoarthritis

An ozone injection into the knee can soothe pain and improve quality of life for people with knee osteoarthritis, a randomized controlled trial suggests. "When I saw the results I was very surprised," said Virginia Fernandes Moça Trevisani, PhD, from the Federal University of Sao Paulo, who presented the finding here at the American College of Rheumatology (ACR) 2015 Annual Meeting. Ozone appears to inhibit prostaglandins and cytokines and reduce oxidative stress, she told Medscape Medical News. It has been used in Europe for many…
