THE USE OF OZONE IS GROWING IN INDIA TO TREAT COVID PATIENTS AND BEYOND

We offer I.V. Ozone for chronic infections, long hauler syndrome and post vax protocols. 

 

“The promotion of ozone for the improvement of human life is our motto”. 
 
This is supported by the Bisleri Charitable Trust which in turn promoted the Ozone Forum of India (OFI), an association of doctors that teaches, practices and disseminates ozone therapy as part of economically integrated complementary medicine. 
 
Ozone therapy has been practiced by the OFI to treat different pathologies including tuberculosis, some forms of cancer, pain therapy, Covid and post Covid. 
 
To treat patients affected by Covid and tuberculosis, ozone therapy has also been successfully used in hospitals: Shewri Government Hospital for Tuberculosis, the LG Hospital in Ahmedabad and the Sion Hospital in Mumbai.
 
More than two thousand doctors have been informed and introduced to the use of ozone therapy as part of 83 training programs organized by the OFI.
 
The projects of the OFI and the Bisleri Charitable Trust are supported by Bisleri International Pvt Ltd ( https://www.bisleri.com), the largest Indian company for the production and distribution of mineral waters.
 
Bisleri International Pvt Ltd which treats all its mineral waters with ozone, covers more than 65% of the beverage market in India, has 122 production plants, 4500 distribution centers and 5000 heavy vehicles (trucks and lorries) for to bring mineral water to every area of India.
 
To better understand the practice, research developments and clinical results in the use of ozone therapy,  Orbisphera interviewed Dr. Mili Shah President of the Ozone Forum of India.
 
How and when did you find out about ozone therapy and Ozone Forum of India?
 
In 2005 I came across Ozone Forum of India who was promoting ozone therapy in India.  I have attended ozone therapy training by different doctors from India, Cuba, Russia, Germany & USA.
 
Ozone Forum of India (OFI) is an integral part of Bisleri Charitable Trust began promoting ozone therapy since 2002, first few years were spent in gathering scientific knowledge from all different countries where ozone therapy was very advanced and were very high on research. OFI was established in 2005 with an intention to provide structured and organized workshops and other public initiatives to spread this low cost therapy and easy access to Ozone therapy all over India. Further, OFI is the training partner for Ministry of AYUSH, and National Institute of Naturopathy, Government of India, for its certification course on Ozone therapy. OFI has started extensive work on tuberculosis, integrated oncology and pain management.  It has published research paper of ozone therapy in different disease. OFI worked extensively on COVID-19 by launching two CTRI studies on ozone therapy as supportive therapy in COVID-19. Recently OFI along with NIN have submitted phase 3 trial and registry studies to interdisplinary committee in AYUSH department to use ozone therapy extensively in Covid 19.
 
What convinced you to practice ozone therapy?
 
I instantly took liking towards this oxygen based therapy as it had practically no side effects and was very scientific.  It was originated in Germany and as a practicing homoeopath it had a similar philosophy of treatment.
 
Over the past 18 months you and Ozone Forum of India have used ozone therapy to prevent and treat patients affected by Covid - 19. Can you provide us with the results of clinical trials carried out on Bisleri employees and in hospitals where you have treated Covid patients with ozone therapy?
 
This was done in the past during lockdown which improved Bisleri employees’ immunity and well-being. With this treatment, we not only reduced their risk towards contracting the infection but build their immunity which led to only 7 out of 320 employees contract the virus and they were mild and asymptomatic. This also shows the incidence rate off contracting the infection is only 2%.
 
We have used ozone therapy in Covid, in Government and private hospitals.  In mid 2020, we have conducted 2 CTRI (Clinical Trial Registry of India) which are successfully published in Journal of Immuno Pharmacology (Pub Med Index Journal).  2 more research papers have been published as preventive tool for covid-19.
 
As per clinical trial conducted in mid-2020 ozone therapy showed recovery rate of 77% within 5 days and by the 8th day all the patients from ozone group recovered. Ozone therapy has a greater impact in controlling the infection as patient suffers from various conditions such as circulatory disorders leading to clotting or thrombosis, headaches, lung infection, body pain & breathlessness situations. We have given ozone therapy to more than 700 patients in Mumbai and Pune.
 
How much is ozone therapy understood and practiced in India?
 
Ozone therapy has come a long way from unknown therapy to acceptable complimentary therapy because of our initiatives. Patients by enlarge have started having understanding for this wonderful supportive therapy. We are trying to create more awareness on this with the help of regular interviews, newspaper articles and social media. 
 
The Ozone Forum of India carries out training courses to know and practice ozone therapy, can you give us an idea of how many ozone therapists have attended your courses and which are the countries where ozone therapy is practiced?
 
We have trained more than 1900 doctors across India, out of which approx. 750 doctors are practicing Ozone Therapy.
 
We have trained doctors from UAE, Malaysia, Indonesia, Bangladesh, Srilanka, etc. 
 
Have you communicated the results of your medical studies and practices regarding ozone therapy to the Ministry of Health and the World Health Organization?
 
We have communicated results of ozone therapy with our Government and have applied for registry trial on ozone therapy. Meanwhile, lot of ozone practicing doctors have been using ozone therapy on their patients.
 
What do you think is the future of ozone therapy?
 
Future of ozone therapy is extremely bright as slowly we are gathering lot of information on how ozone precisely works on human body along with that there are lot of countries which are practicing and regularizing ozone therapy. This is being adjuvant and complimentary therapy, having good potential as integrated in any medical field.

IN COMO, OXYGEN OZONE THERAPY SAVES THE LIFE OF A COVID-SICK LADY

 

The doctors of the Covid department of the Valduce Hospital in Como, Italy, had used all the means and therapies available to them. The situation was desperate. For the 63-year-old Mrs. Maria Ausilia, called “Usi”, there seemed to be little chance of recovery. The former husband chartered accountant Francesco Nessi together with the doctors prof. Marianno Franzini, International President of the Scientific Society of Oxygen/Ozone Therapy (SIOOT), and the surgeon Emanuele Franchi were ready for one last therapeutic attempt with oxygen/ozone therapy. 
 
Dr. Franchi is an orthopedics and traumatology specialist, current Head of the Orthopedics Unit of the Clinical Institute of Villa Aprica in Como, a member of SIOOT, who has been practicing ozone therapy since 2006. 
 
Interviewed by “Orbisphera”, Dr. Franchi said:
 
«The SIOOT and prof. Franzini were contacted by dr. Nessi, desperate for the condition of his ex-wife, who after more than two weeks of intensive care intubated and subsequently transferred to the pulmonology ward where she was supported with non-invasive ventilation 24 hours a day, did not seem to improve despite the various therapies reserved for her.  Dr. Nessi was determined to try one last therapy for his wife, so he asked the hospital managers to be able to practice oxygen-ozone therapy under conditions of compassionate protocol. Once he became aware of the lady’s conditions and made an agreement with the hospital for the practice of this therapy, prof. Franzini involved me as an ozone therapist who carries out his own business in Como.
 
Having dealt with the necessary paperwork, I entered the department on the morning of Saturday 10 April.
 
The patient was in very serious condition, with the ratio between ventilation perfusion and oxygenation the so-called (P/F) equal to 90. A very low value considered as a critical limit for intubation.
 
After the interview with the patient’s colleagues, it was immediately clear to me that despite the therapies used up to that time and the long resuscitation treatment, the patient’s clinical condition did not improve and, after a careful evaluation, it was considered unlikely that the physique of the lady already strongly weakened could withstand other invasive treatments such as resuscitation maneuvers.
 
As foreseen by the protocol studied with prof. Franzini, we therefore started with the first major autohemotherapy (MAH), which was then repeated in the evening.  Oviously, during the whole period in which we practiced oxygen-ozone therapy, none of the original therapies in progress were suspended.
 
The surprising thing is that on Sunday morning, after just two MAH sessions, the ratio (P/F) between ventilation perfusion and oxygenation had already risen to 210. This was a sensational response.
 
In the following days the parameters of (P/F) stabilized between 270 and 300, an exceptional result if you consider that we started from 90.
 
Even knowing how effective MAH was, I was the first to be amazed at how sensational the effect of ozone therapy had been on the lady’s health conditions.
 
We continued with this treatment for four days.
 
In the following days, we witnessed a constant improvement in clinical and laboratory parameters.
 
The values of the C-reactive protein that measures inflammation fell from 150 to 40,
and the values of the D-dimer which measures the coagulation mechanisms related to the formation of thrombi fell from 1500 to 500.
 
After a few days of therapy and clinical improvement, a control CT scan of the chest was repeated which surprisingly showed a marked improvement in the pulmonary infiltrative foci.
 
We therefore decided to continue with the treatment once a day for about another week.
 
A few days after discontinuing the therapy, Dr. Nessi reported that his wife was fine and even managed to celebrate her birthday a few days after the end of the therapy with the staff by going out on the terrace of her hospital room.
 
I am an orthopedics specialist and I find it difficult to understand all the mechanisms of action of ozone, but by evaluating the clinical parameters that I am able to understand, I can say that the improvement seems surprising to me.
 
It is the first time that I have personally treated a Covid-19 patient with ozone therapy and it seems to me an example of remarkable success in the ability to cure.
 
The results are consistent and in line with what has been observed and published in the case reports and in the international bibliography in which 890 Covid-19 patients are successfully treated with the aid of oxygen-ozone therapy associated with standard therapies used in dedicated departments.
 
What amazed me most is that Covid-19 patients treated with oxygen ozone therapy in combination with conventional therapies reported in the literature, were subjected to protocols that provided for the use of this treatment developed for patients in less dire conditions. 
 
This, in my opinion, suggests that if we had intervened at the first symptoms rather than when the picture was so impaired, the course of the lady’s illness might have been more favorable from the beginning.
 
After the oxygen ozone therapy, the patient tested negative for Covid-19, so it would be worth furthering the studies to understand if and to what extent this therapy, which is known to have antibacterial and antiviral properties, may have contributed to this result.
 
I am fascinated and favorably surprised by the behavior of ozone, even though I have long verified its anti-inflammatory and anti-infective capacity in patients I have treated with bacterial loads that could not be eradicated with normal drug treatment.
 
I was very confident in ozone’s ability to fight Covid, however I was amazed by the results that went far beyond my expectations.
 
Unfortunately, despite the results obtained in this and in other cases reported in the literature, to date an appropriate experimentation and evaluation process has not been developed that allows oxygen-ozone therapy to be recognized as an adjuvant to those known to all and used in the Covid-19 disease therapy more universally.
 
Reflecting on what happened in my limited experience and comparing myself with some fellow ozone therapists who have been involved in the treatment of other patients suffering from Covid-19 disease, I am convinced that it would be worth putting the effort into carrying out a comprehensive research aimed at “approval of oxygen-ozone therapy as a hospital protocol for the treatment of Covid-19 patients”. I also hope that other hospitals may consider in the interim the use of therapy as a compassionate cure for those cases for which the standard therapies recognized and used on a large scale have unfortunately not brought satisfactory results, in the hope that other patients can draw the benefit that I have been able to observe.
 
If further studies and the collection of other cases confirm the validity of oxygen-ozone therapy as an adjuvant to standard care, oxygen-ozone therapy could help save more lives and would also benefit hospitals dedicated to the care of Covid-19 positive patients, especially in terms of patient recovery speed».
 
It is also worth noting that all the interventions made by dr. Franchi for practicing oxygen ozone therapy were done completely free of charge.
 
The costs of using the machines and bags to carry out the MAH were also covered free of charge by SIOOT.
 
Concluded Dr. Franchi: «The compassionate protocol provides for free treatment and in any case my service aimed to heal the lady regardless of the costs».
 
Thanks, Dr. Franchi, Prof. Franzini and Dr. Nessi.  Your interventions not only contributed to saving a person, and as the Talmud says “whoever saves a life saves the whole world”, and this action has fueled the hope of assisting in the best way the other therapies already recognized and proven to defeat Covid and other viruses to come.

The Vax - Having Side Effects?

[fa icon="calendar'] Sep 14, 2021 9:40:51 AM / by Dr. Isadora Guggenheim

[fa icon="comment"] 0 Comments

We know many of our patients had to comply with mandates for their employment. Covid and the vaccine pull back the cover on underlying vulnerabilities and existing disease patterns within each individual. If you have a history of Lyme, an autoimmune condition, allergies to both foods and environmental allergens, cardiac issues, systemic inflammation, neuropathies, diabetes, dementia or other neurological conditions - post vax we see patients experiencing a progression of their existing conditions and their labs correlate to those issues.
