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.

DRY EYE More Susceptible to Covid

“An ozone-based ophthalmic gel could act as a barrier against the entry of the SARS CoV-2 virus, thus acting as a sort of mask for the eyes, to be used together with the mask that covers the nose and mouth”.

Click the link to the full article:

This is the idea proposed in a study entitled “COVID-19 Ocular Prophylaxis: The Potential Role of Ozonated-Oils in Liposome Eyedrop Gel”, published in the August issue of Translational Vision Science & Technology:

 The study was directed by Dr. Stanislao Rizzo, Full Professor of Ophthalmology at the Catholic University of the Sacred Heart, Rome campus, and Director of Ophthalmology of the Agostino Gemelli IRCCS University Hospital Foundation.

 “The ozone-based ophthalmic gels – said prof. Rizzo – are already used to relieve the symptoms of inflammatory eye diseases, including those of infectious origin. Our study suggests that they may also have a barrier effect against viruses that enter the eye or nasolacrimal system”.

“This is an in vitro study and the results will have to be confirmed by studies on animal models and humans,” said Rizzo.

 Learn about I.V. Therapies for dry eye, macular degeneration, cataracts and thyroid eye disease. We have treatment protocols. 

In a note, the IRCCS of the Gemelli Polyclinic explained that the SARS CoV-2 virus can also enter the body through the eyes.

In this regard, the study related what happened to a member of the US National Expert Panel on pneumonia, sent to Wuhan for inspection.

The man, who wore no eye protection, first developed conjunctivitis and then the classic Covid-19 pneumonia.

Other studies have shown that the virus can remain in the eye for several weeks after the acute phase of the disease.

 It was therefore discovered that the eyes are a target organ of SARS CoV-2, and that especially those suffering from dry eye syndrome are much more likely to be infected. Yes which human tissue requires the most oxygen? 

Answer: The Retina 

Aging begins in the eyes. That is why you must give your eyes special attention. Get regular eye exams yearly and especially after you have Covid or the vaccine. 

It was thus thought to enhance the barrier effect of tears against SARS CoV-2 by using a special ozone-based gel.

 In the note from the IRCCS of Gemelli it is specified that “ozone has long been used in medicine to disinfect and treat infectious diseases, given its ability to inactivate bacteria, viruses, fungi, yeasts and even protozoa. The antiviral activity of ozone occurs by damaging the viral capsid and altering replication through peroxidation”.

When asked how to spread ozone on the surface of the eye, prof. Rizzo replied that “ozone is very unstable, but to make it suitable for topical use, it can be stabilized by making it react with a monounsaturated fatty acid such as oleic acid to create the so-called ozonated oils, which retain the same properties gaseous ozone and are well tolerated by the tissues.”

“Ozonated oils – he added – are already used in the form of eye drops or ophthalmic gels to relieve the symptoms of inflammatory ocular diseases, including those of infectious origin; ozone also facilitates the healing of corneal damage by minimizing the risk of scarring and opacification of the cornea.”

“The objective of the study – explains prof. Rizzo – is to evaluate whether this eye gel can prevent SARS CoV-2 infection in the tissues of the eye, and also to evaluate whether, in patients with dry eye syndrome, ozone can help restore the integrity of the ocular surface, repairing and regenerating the conjunctival microvilli.”

The in vitro study provided positive results, demonstrating that the ozone-based ophthalmic gel inhibited viral replication and the entry of the virus into the cells on the surface of the eye (corneal and conjunctival).

 It has also been shown that ozone eye gel restores cell regeneration and controls inflammation in dry eye syndrome.

In conclusion, considering that the ocular surface is a potential route of entry for the virus, if the results of this research were to be confirmed by studies on animal models and on humans, it would be conceivable to propose the topical administration of ozone-based ophthalmic gels to prevent the entry of SARS CoV-2 through the ocular surface.

The Director of the Gemelli Ophthalmology Unit believes that the ozone gel is “a protective measure to be recommended first of all to health professionals, and then to be extended to the entire population.”

Keep your eyes out for more on this topic. Medical ozone in several applications works. 

The scientific work was carried out by the researchers: Stanislao Rizzo, Maria Cristina Savastano, Alfonso Savastano, Gloria Gambini (Ophthalmology Unit, A. Gemelli IRCCS Polyclinic Foundation, Catholic University of the Sacred Heart); Daria Bortolotti, Valentina Gentili, Roberta Rizzo (University of Ferrara, Department of Chemical, Pharmaceutical and Agricultural Sciences); Francesca Caccuri (Department of Microbiology and Virology, Spedali Civili, Brescia).

Is there a connection? Researchers from the Karolinska Institute in Sweden think so because they found people with celiac disease were more likely to have used antibiotics in the year before their diagnosis.

Celiacs were more likely to have been prescribed multiple courses of antibiotics.
