Ozone Therapy in the Urology

Posted by Marin Crangaci

Ozone therapy is one of the present-day and perspective fields of modern medicine with a low pharmacological load for a patient. Ozone therapy is more than 100 years, and despite many debates about reasonability of this method, it is generally recognized by patients.

Ozone is an unstable gas, which consists of 3 oxygen atoms, it has a high oxidative capacity. Ozone is a highly toxic compound for living bodies. Due to its ability to oxidize and destroy organic and nonorganic compounds it was used even during the First World War for management of wounds.

In present-day ozone therapy ozone-oxygen mixtures with different concentration of ozone from 1 to 80 mg per 1 litre of oxygen are applied, which are received from oxygen with the help of medical ozonator for medical and cosmetic purposes.

Chronic Pyelonephritis

 

In the treatment of chronic pyelonephritis medical ozone is used as an anti-inflammatory and anti-infective agent. Although the gram-negative bacteria are less sensitive to ozone than the gram-positive ones, ozone therapy has proved to be highly effective, particularly in medical conditions where medicinal treatment fails.

 

The bactericidal action of ozone involves stimulation of phagocytosis through an increase in the generation of hydrogen peroxides by leukocytes while in chronic infections no H2O2 or too little of it is formed. The influence of ozone on the lymphocytes and monocytes induces an increase in their energy properties i.e. an increase not only in the phagocytic properties, but also in the production of cytokines, in particular interleukines. The latter normalize the cellular and humoral immunity, which is disturbed in chronic pyelonephritis. It comes to the increased formation of T-killers indicating the efficiency of the cellular immunity, the optimized formation of T-helpers and T-suppressors regulating the activity of B-lymphocytes, which are responsible for synthesis of immunoglobulins. So, by this way ozone therapy produces an immunomodulating effect. Ozone directly affects the bacteria by destroying their membrane integration owing to the oxidation of phospolipids and lipoproteins, it penetrates into the microbial cell, reacts with the substance of cytoplasm, in particular DNA, and disturbs the proliferation of bacteria. Moreover, the toxity towards the infectious agents, but not towards the patient is explained so that the bacteria have not the enzymatic antioxidant mechanisms, which are characteristic of higher organisms.

 

In case of latent, lightly manifested chronic pyelonephritis ozone therapy can be used both as a monotherapy and in combination with anti-inflammatory agents. In the period of aggravation the complex treatment is preferable. It is important to know that under the action of ozone the microorganisms are more sensitive to medicinal agents such as antiseptics and antibiotics.

Recommended methods of ozone therapy:

  • Intravenous drop-by-drop infusions of ozonated saline solution;

  • Rectal ozone insufflations;

  • Major autohaemotehrapy with ozone;

  • Minor autohaemotherapy with ozone;

  • Intranodular (in the field of groin glands) drop-by-drop infusions of ozonated saline solution. 

Already on the 2nd day most of the patients report about an improvement of general condition, disappearance of weakness, a decrease in dysuriac disturbances. After 4-5 procedures it comes to a distinct decrease in leukocyturia and bacteriuria, normalization of blood indices, a decrease in misbalance of helper-suppressor relationship, activation of phagocytosis. Good results of treatment were received using intravenous infusions of ozonated physiological saline before and after lithotripsy (V.V. Kuzmenko etc, 1998).

Cystitis

The antimicrobic and detoxication properties of ozone are successfully used in the treatment of acute and chronic cystitis.

 

The intravesical use of ozonated crystalloids produces a well-manifested sanative and anti-inflammatory effect by suppressing the growth or considerably decreasing the concentration (colony-forming units/ml) of enterococcus, Proteus, colibacillus and completely eliminating dysuriac disturbances.

 

Recommended methods of ozone therapy:

  • Bladder irrigations with ozonated saline solution through a Foley 3-way-catheter.

The close results showed a 100% healing of primary infectious focus, diffuse, acute and chronic cystitis. Already after one procedure most of the patients reported about a decrease in dysuriac disturbances, disappearance of pain sensations, improvement of general state, increase in workability. After the treatment course in 75% of patients pathogenic flora was not found out in the urine, and in 18% the microbiological investigation showed an increase in the sensitivity of microflora to the well-known and mostly used antibiotics.

 

The histological investigation conducted after 3 procedures of bladder irrigations in 36 patients pointed out morphological signs of bactericidal, anti-adhesive and hydromassage action of this method. The assessment of received results showed an improvement in both primary and postprimary cystitis of infectious genesis.

The intracavitary use of ozonated saline solution has proved to be particularly effective when cystitis is caused by microorganisms, which are resistant to most of available antibiotics as well as in case of long-drawn-out cystitis after the surgery on open bladder when there is a washing drainage system in the cavity 

Diseases Transmissible by Sexual Way

 

The most frequent in the general structure of human infectious pathology are the diseases of reproductive system. The so-called "diseases of second generation" - urogenital chlamydiosis, mycoplasmosis, ureoplasmosis, viral diseases take the leading place among the reasons for disturbances of generative function and marital infertility. More than 20 causative agents transmissible through sexual contacts induce the diseases transmissible by sexual way. The main forms of localized chlamydiosis in male patients are: urethritis - in 30-50%, urethroprostatitis - in 26-46%, and in young men epididymitis - in 35-50%. In women primary chlamydeous infection in 30-60% of cases develops in cervical canal and/or urethra and in case of its rising transmission leads to endometritis, adenixitis, salpingitis, oophoritis and primary or postprimary infertility, spontaneous abortion.

 

The complexity of diagnostics and treatment of chlamydia is explained by its four kinds known today: Chlamydia trachomatis, C.psittaci, C.pneumouiae, C.pecorum. Urogenital clones of chlamydia adapted to epithelial cells of mucous membranes of urogenital organs C.trachomatis have 15 immunotypes, and C.psittaci - 10 immunotypes. The use of traditional transformating agents-antibiotics can lead to formation of anomalous, similar with L-forms bacteria, chlamydeous forms with different defects of cell wall. The most important is the ability of chlamydia to survive in cells of immune system - polymorphonuclear leukocytes and macrophages.

 

The typical for urogenital infection suppression of cellular immunity and disturbance of digestive function of leukocytes leads to endobiocytosis of gonococcus, its L-forms, trichomonad and chlamydia that is considered the reason for disease relapses.

 

The complex ozone therapy leads to improvement in the immunity indices, restoration of the functional activity of immunocompetent cells, normalization of biocenosis, inhibition of lipid peroxidation processes, activation of the organism's own antioxidant mechanisms that results in the liquidation of aggravations of chronic inflammatory urogenital processes and elimination of causative agent.

 

Recommended methods of ozone therapy:

  • Intravenous drop-by-drop infusions of ozonated saline solution;

  • Minor autohaemotherapy with ozone;

  • Urethra rinsing with ozonated saline solution;

  • Ozonized olive oil for local applications or microenemas

In the course of treatment it comes to fast and stable positive clinical-laboratory dynamics in approx. 97% of cases. After 4-5 procedures it comes to disappearance of pathological symptomatics (pain, lancinating pain, urethral itch, urethral secretion). Along with disappearance of subjective symptomatics it comes to remission of mucous-suppurative endocervicitis, acute and chronic endometritis, adnexitis, chronic prostatitis. It comes to a considerable increase in the T-lymphocytes through T-helpers, an increase in immunoglobulin titer, an increase in the phagocytic activity of neutrophile granulocytes, a considerable decrease in the plasma level of circulating immune complexes that results in the activation of immunity. It has been established a decrease in the blood level of end products of lipid peroxidation and growth of antioxidant activity. It has been observed an increase in the sensitivity of microflora to the well-known and most used antibiotics. After the performed course of ozone therapy it comes to stable remission.

How to Use Grapeseed Ozonated Oil for Skin

Posted by Elena Sincariova
Hinted in the name, the oil is extracted from crushed grape seeds. This is known, in the cosmetics industry, as a carrier oil due to it being from the fatty portion of the plant, unlike essential oils which are extracted from the non-fatty parts. The grapeseed ozonated oil is used a lot for the base of many different cosmetics including moisturisers and creams. This is because it helps to balance out the dry and oily patches on the skin leading smooth and soothing benefits.

Grapeseed ozonated oil has a high value in the cosmetics industry. It can be added to cosmetics, or used directly from the bottle to smooth and soften your skin. It contains a higher percentage of linoleic acid than many other carrier oils. It’s suitable for both men and women, and can also be used for shaving, and encouraging growth and thickness of hair.

This oznated oil is also affordable, and is a natural alternative to buying questionable creams and lotions from the supermarket, that are full of fillers and harmful chemicals that can cause allergic reactions. Most people can tolerate using grapeseed ozonated oil on their skin without experiencing any ill effects.

Why Grapeseed Ozonated Oil?

Grapeseed ozonated oil is suitable for your skin because of its healing properties. It contains linoleic acid, an omega-6 fatty acid. These fatty acids are utilized by your body’s metabolism, and this is one that you must obtain from food as your body doesn’t synthesize it.

Other acids in this oil include the following:

  • Alpha-linolenic acid.
  • Oleic acid.
  • Palmitic acid.
  • Palmitoleic acid.
  • Stearic acid.

Without fatty acids, your body would experience ill health. You can get these fatty acids naturally from the foods you eat, and by direct application from a bottle of ozonated oil.

The grapeseed ozonated oil also contains antioxidants that can fight off free-radicals, those harmful substances that can get into your body and cause disease. Grapeseed ozonated oil also contains other biologically active compounds to benefit health and skin.

Grapeseed oznated oil is helpful in controlling the moisture of the skin, and also contains vitamin E. It’s suitable whether you have oily or dry skin.

Grapeseed ozonated oil is commonly used as a carrier oil in aromatherapy, where you add various essential oils to dilute them in carrier oil, making them safer for application to the skin.

Other benefits of choosing this oil over other types of carrier oils or vegetable oils is because it is lightweight and not as greasy as the others. It also doesn’t have an unpleasant smell, such as castor oil may have.

5 Ways Grapeseed Ozonated Oil Can Benefit Problem Skin

Since grapeseed ozonated oil has many natural compounds it can also naturally benefit the skin in many ways. Here are 5 ways that you can use grapeseed ozonated oil to help heal your skin.

  1. Moisturizer for skin. Normally if you used an oil on your skin you’d find it too greasy, but grapeseed ozonated oil is nice and light, and will leave your skin feeling soft and smooth. It has a light fragrance that won’t be noticed once it’s been applied to your skin.
  2. Perfect for sensitive skin. Many people with sensitive skin can’t use regular moisturizers or lotions as they’re packed with ingredients that can cause itchy red inflammation. But grapeseed ozonated oil is safe and should not cause allergic reactions in most people, as it’s considered one of the hypo-allergenic oils.
  3. Skin-tightening properties. This oil contains natural astringent properties. This results in skin toning and skin tightening.
  4. Rebalances oily skin. Experts say that oily skin is caused by the over-production of oil because the skin thinks it’s dry. Using a non-comedogenic type of moisturizer such as grapeseed ozonated oil will provide the nourishment your skin needs, and help to rebalance your oily skin.
  5. Moisturizes your scalp. Using this oil on your scalp will not only soften your hair, but discourage the production of fungus that leads to dandruff.

5 Skin Conditions That Grapeseed Ozonated Oil Can Heal

Grapeseed ozonated oil is commonly used for a variety of purposes, but if you have problematic skin, you can also use it to heal your skin condition too.

  1. Reduce wrinkles and scars. Have you noticed how many creams and lotions you see in the stores use a grapeseed ozonated oil base? This is because the oil is light with many beneficial properties. It contains vitamin D and antioxidants that will help to reduce fine wrinkles and lines over time.
  2. Healing and prevention of acne. Acne can be a problematic skin condition that can cause scars over time. The polyphenols contained in the oil provide anti-inflammatory properties to help the blemishes to heal up, while the astringent properties of the oil help to keep the colonies of bacteria that cause acne in check.
  3. Prevent and decrease stretch marks. There are a variety of causes for stretch marks, from a sudden growth spurt in the teens, to sudden weight loss, and also pregnancy. When the skin rapidly changes it can cause the connecting fibres in the dermal layer to tear and stretch. This results in an upper layer of long red lines. These lines eventually turn silver or white. These lines are unsightly, and if left alone, may only slightly improve over time. It’s generally agreed that treatment should begin during a pregnancy, and several weeks past the birth of a child to reduce these lines, as it’s more difficult to remove them once they are set. You may also spread ozonated oil on the skin to decrease any unsightly stretch marks caused by growth spurts or sudden weight loss.
  4. Dark under eye circles. Under eye circles can make your face appear dull and lifeless, and give you the look that you’re always tired, even when you’re not. Grapeseed ozonated oil is safe to apply around your eyes, and is much better than using a store brand of cream or lotion, which can cause burning if you get it in your eyes. Grapeseed ozonated oil is natural and won’t cause any eye irritation or harm if it gets into your eyes.
  5. Scars. Grapeseed ozonated oil can also be used to heal up new or old scars. The sooner the better, but it can also provide healing properties to scars that have been around for years too, so they slowly fade away.

How to Use Grapeseed Ozonated Oil to Restore Healthy Skin

Grapeseed ozonated oil is simple and easy to use. You can simply pour out a few drops onto your fingertips and use it to rub into your skin. You may wish to use these tips for optimal benefits.

  • Wash your face at least twice a day.
  • Place about three drops of ozonated oil on your face.
  • Gently use your fingertips to rub the oil in.
  • If you put on too much, use a tissue to pat your face.
  • Apply the ozonated oil after each time you wash your face.
  • Use the ozonated oil on face, scalp, hair, or body.
  • If you’re treating a specific problematic area, dot an extra drop of ozonated oil on that region: under eyes, dry elbows or knees, blemished chin, etc.

How to Make a Soothing Grapeseed Ozonated Oil Mask

A simple grapeseed ozonated oil mask can be used on your face once a week. It only takes two ingredients.

Ingredients and Supplies Needed:

Ozonated oils for allergic rhinitis

Posted by Marin Crangaci

Over the last 50 years, the rise in prevalence of allergic diseases and disorders has continued in the industrialized world. Allergic rhinitis, the medical term for hay fever and what’s behind the unpleasant seasonal allergy symptoms we all know so well, develops when the body’s immune system becomes sensitized and overreacts to something in the environment.

Today, 40 to 60 million Americans are affected by allergic rhinitis and the numbers continue to grow, especially in children. When left untreated, allergies can cause blocked and runny nose, sneezing, watery eyes, headaches and an impaired sense of smell — but this is in less severe cases. For some people, allergies can be life threatening, leading to inflammation and shortness of breath.

People who suffer from allergies are often told to avoid triggers, but that is nearly impossible when the seasons are changing and our immune systems are impaired by the food industry and environmental toxins. Thankfully, some powerfull ozonated oils serve as a natural and safe way to treat the symptoms of allergies and boost our immune systems. These ozonated oils for allergies have the ability to chemically support the body and help it to overcome hypersensitivity.

How Do Ozonated Oils Fight Allergies?

An allergic reaction begins in the immune system. An allergen is a substance that tricks the immune system — making it think that the allergen is an invader. The immune system then overreacts to the allergen, which is really a harmless substance, and produces Immunoglobulin E antibodies. These antibodies travel to cells that release histamine and other chemicals, causing the allergic reaction.

The most common causes of an allergic reaction include:

  • Pollen
  • Dust
  • Mold
  • Insect stings
  • Animal dander
  • Food
  • Medications
  • Latex

These allergens will trigger symptoms in the nose, throat, lungs, ears, sinuses and lining of the stomach or on the skin. The question here still remains — if these common causes have been around for thousands of years, then why have the allergy rates increased in recent history?

One of the theories behind explaining the increase in allergies has to do with inflammation, the root of most diseases. The body responds in a certain way to an allergen because the immune system is in overdrive. When the body is already dealing with high inflammation, any allergen sets off an increased reaction. That means that when the body’s immune system is overworked and stressed, introducing an allergen sends the body into overreaction.

If the immune system and inflammation within the body was balanced, the reaction to the allergen would be normal; however, today these reactions are exaggerated and lead to the next unneeded allergic reaction.

One of the most amazing benefits of ozonated oils are their ability to fight inflammation and boost the immune system. Ozonated oils for allergies will help to detoxify the body and fight infections, bacteria, parasites, microorganisms and harmful toxins. They reduce the bodies susceptibility to outside sources and reduce the overreaction of the immune system when it is faced with a harmless intruder. 

1. Coconut  ozonated oil

Coconut oil is rich in a something called lauric acid. This compound has potent antibacterial and antifungal properties. To relieve congestion you can try “oil pulling” technique. It involves gently swishing about one teaspoon of coconut ozonated oil in your mouth for about 20 minutes each morning.

Swish and gargle slowly, but just like mouthwash don’t try and swallow the liquid. The goal here is to allow the coconut ozonated oil to pull toxins out of your mouth, gums and lymph glands. This can improve your lymphatic circulation, which should help neutralize microorganism while draining mucosal passages. Adding a few drops of essential peppermint oil to the coconut ozonated oil rinse can improve mucosal circulation as well. Try doing this detox routine once a day before you brush your teeth.

2.  HEMP SEED OZONATED OIL

Hemp seed ozonated oil reduces the inflammatory response of allergens. It also supports the adrenal glands, which are involved in producing over 50 hormones that drive almost every bodily function. Essentially, hemp seed ozonated oil is helping your body to react appropriately to a threat by rushing blood to your brain, heart and muscles.

Hemp seed ozonated oil also helps to detoxify the body of bacteria and viruses, while fighting inflammation, pain and fatigue. Studies prove that hemp seed ozonated oil shows antimicrobial activity and can kill bacteria, yeast and mold that can lead to asthma and respiratory damage.

Ozonated Oil & Ear Infections

Posted by Marin Crangaci
If you've ever had an ear infection as an adult, you know just how painful they can be. Ear infections can also be a big concern for parents. Not only can they cause your child to be very uncomfortable, but they can also be hard to treat. Many people are turning to ozonated oils as a way to help clear up an ear infection naturally. But do ozonated oils for ear infections work? Can they be dangerous? Here's what you need to know about using ozonated oils for ear infections.

How can ozonated oils be used to treat ear infections?

Ozone attacks the lipids in the bacterial cell membrane forming variety of oxidants. These bacteria lack the anti oxidant defense enzymes and that is why they are destroyed.
Ozonated Oil is effective against most common disease producing bacteria, virus and fungi. It is also effective against organisms causing hospital acquired infections and multidrug resistant pathogens.
Thus it decreases the excretion of pus and also stimulates healing of the wound.

Types of Ear Infections

Ear infections can occur in the middle ear or the outer ear. Middle ear infections, also called otitis media, develop frequently in babies and children and generally come about as a result of cold- or allergy-related inflammation that seals the Eustachian tubes and leads to fluid buildup and eventually infection in the middle ear. Outer ear infections, also called otitis externa, develop when bacteria proliferate in your ear canal, often as a result of trapped water or a cut in the skin lining the ear canal. Swimmers of all ages commonly suffer from otitis externa.

Middle Ear Infections

Warmed ozonated olive oil instilled in the affected ear often helps minimize pain resulting from a middle ear infection. When ozonated oil makes contact with the inflamed eardrum, it has a soothing effect on the swollen, tightly stretched tissue, which might help relieve the pain. To use this home remedy, place several drops of body-temperature ozonated olive oil in the ear canal of the affected ear, following up with warm compresses and over-the-counter oral pain medication, if necessary.

Outer Ear Infections

Symptoms of an outer ear infection can include redness, itching, swelling and pain in the outer ear, particularly when tugging on the lobe of the ear. Instilling two to three drops of ozonated olive oil in each ear canal just before going swimming helps lubricate the tissue lining the ear canal and might aid in keeping water from getting trapped there. The ozonated olive oil also helps prevent the buildup of excessive earwax, which often prevents water from draining out of your ear canal, eventually leading to infection.

Considerations

Always check with your primary care doctor before putting ozonated olive oil in the ear canal of a person suffering from an ear infection, especially a young child. Once you've warmed the ozonated olive oil, use a thermometer to ensure that it is at body temperature to minimize your chances of accidentally burning the sensitive ear canal tissue. Ozonated oil and other liquid ear drops aren't appropriate for use in people who have ear tubes or might have a ruptured eardrum, a condition generally accompanied by ear discharge and severe ear pain. Don't expect ozonated olive oil to single-handedly cure ear infections: If you suspect an ear infection, arrange an appointment with your doctor for proper diagnosis and treatment, which might involve topical or oral antibiotics.
