ACUPUNCTURE

Acupuncture is an ancient system of healing developed over thousands of years as part of the traditional medicine of China, Japan, Vietnam and other Eastern countries. Acupuncture's origins lie in China and date back to over 5,000 years ago; today there are over 3,000,000 practitioners worldwide using it in their practice . The majority of these 3,000,000 practitioners practice in the East; however, during the last half of the 20th century the number of persons studying  and using acupuncture in the West has been steadily growing.

Method:

It is based on the belief that health is determined by a balanced flow of Qi(energy), also referred to as "Chi." Qi is circulated through the blood stream via fourteen energy ducts called meridians. Each one of these pathways or channels through which Qi flows is linked to an internal organ system. There are over 1,000 acupoints within the meridian system that can be stimulated to enhance the flow of Qi. Acupuncture diagnoses illness by seeking blockages in the body's meridians. Acupuncture examines the   body  as a whole.Special  painless needles are inserted into the acupoints, which are located just beneath the epidermis. In theory, inserting these needles helps correct the flow of energy within the body and thus relieves pain and restores health. We use acupuncture especially for pain treatment syndroms there where the drugs and physiotherapy have failed. We use it also for infertility in IVF and we double the success by using a German protocol which uses the same points that the ancient chinese have used 3000 years ago.When placed on the face, acupuncture points promote sinus drainage and open up nasal passages. Most patients of acupuncture will need several sessions, which cost about 50 euros  per session(1 hour session). Acupuncture practitioners work in hospitals, rehabilitation centers, and private offices. Acupuncture needles are usually inserted to a depth of about 1-2 cm   into the skin. The therapist gently twists or twirls them f  leaving them in five to 60minutes (if the case is chronic) or stimulates them with a weak electrical current (electro acupuncture), or heats them with a burning herb such as moxa. In our office we also use  a special american laser in treating the acupoints with excellent results(no needles used).

EAR ACUPUNCTURE

Ear acupuncture can be a very effective method for relieving acute pains and chronically stiff joints, sometimes these have been cured within minutes. For some problems it can be more effective than body acupuncture. Ear acupuncture is easy and safe for self-treatment and in healing groups. Organ diseases and glandular disturbances may respond less dramatically, but ear needling will always be very helpful as a supportive method with other forms of treatment.
The main disadvantage of ear acupuncture is the requirement to find the most painful spot for it to be fully effective, and this is not pleasant for people who are very sensitive to pain. The best points are those that feel like an electric shock or like hitting a raw nerve! However, often the pain will be felt as being beneficial, especially because it usually decreases with continued needling. This pain may be considered as 'letting off steam' or congestive energy from a target organ through the 'safety valve' of an ear point. However, chronically weak organs may also benefit from ear needling if no pain is felt in the corresponding ear point. Generally, however, you may follow the rule 'The more sore the point, the more effective the treatment’.
Acupuncture needles are available from some medical-equipment shops, acupuncturists or from acupuncture supply companies, see the Yellow Pages of major cities for addresses. For ear acupuncture use short and medium fine needles (e.g. 25 mm No. 30 gauge or the finer 12mm long 32 gauge) or simple a laser beam.. Usually you buy them in packs of 10. In addition press-needles are very effective and may also be ordered in packets of 10. Press-needles are like tiny drawing pins with a 2 mm-long needle. They are retained in the ear for one to two weeks, covered with adhesive tape, and stimulated from time to time by pressing between thumb and a finger pad. If an acupuncture needle is not available, you may use a bead needle or even a fine sewing needle.In our office we have a special machine from USA for ear electroacupuncture with no needles especially for obesity and for smoking cessation in 5 treatments.

OZONOTHERAPY

Ozone Therapy  
Ozone Therapy is a medical therapy whereby ozone is introduced into the human body. Ozone is O3, whereas the oxygen we breathe is O2. Ozone has been used successfully around the world for over 80 years to treat:

Cancer (boosts the immune system)
AIDS (boosts the immune system)
Diabetes
Stroke
Depression
Chronic Fatigue
Lupus erythematosus
Fibromyalgia
and over 150 more diseases. In some clinics around the world, ozone is the first agent given to each and every patient that enters the clinic regardless of their ailments. Ozone addresses the key issues in almost all disease conditions: oxygen delivery, circulation, and immune system function. The F1 driver Baritchello and the queen of England do it as an immune system booster.

HOW DOES OZONE WORK?

1. Inactivation of bacteria, viruses, fungi, yeast and protozoa:
Ozone disrupts the integrity of the bacterial cell envelope through oxidation of the phospholipids and lipoproteins. In fungi, ozone inhibits cell growth at certain stages. With viruses, the ozone damages the viral capsid and disrupts the reproductive cycle by disrupting the virus-to-cell contact with peroxidation. The weak enzyme coatings on cells which make them vulnerable to invasion by viruses make them susceptible to oxidation and elimination from the body, which then replaces them with healthy cells.
2. Enhancement of circulation:
In circulatory disease, a clumping of red blood cells hinders blood flow through the small capillaries and decreases oxygen absorption due to reduced surface area. Ozone reduces or eliminates clumping and red cell flexibility is restored, along with oxygen carrying ability. Oxygenation of the tissues increases as the arterial partial pressure increases and viscosity decreases. Ozone also oxidizes the plaque in arteries, allowing the removal of the breakdown products, unclogging the blood vessels.
3. Stimulation of oxygen metabolism:
Ozone causes an increase in the red blood cell glycolysis rate. This leads to the stimulation of 2,3-diphosphoglycerate (2,3-DPG) which leads to an increase in the amount of oxygen released to the tissues. There is a stimulation of the production of the enzymes which act as free radical scavengers and cell wall protectors: glutathione peroxidase, catalase, and superoxide dismutase. Ozone activates the Krebs cycle by enhancing oxidative carboxylation of pyruvate, stimulating production of ATP. Ozone also causes a significant reduction in NADH and helps to oxidize cytochrome C. Prostacyclin, a vasodilator, is also induced by ozone.
4. Formation of peroxides:
Ozone reacts with the unsaturated fatty acids of the lipid layer in cellular membranes, forming hydro peroxides. There is a synergistic effect with cellular- formed H2O2. Lipid peroxidation products include alkoxyl and peroxyl radicals, singlet oxygen, ozonides, carbonides, carbonyls, alkanes and alkenes.
5. Dissolution of malignant tumors:
Ozone inhibits tumor metabolism. In addition, ozone oxidizes the outer lipid layer of malignant cells and destroys them through cell lysis (break-down). Phagocytes produce H2O2 and hydroxyl to kill bacteria and viruses. The generation of hydroxyl by killer cells is critical to their cytotoxic capability. Ozone stimulates conversion of L- arginine to citrulline, nitrite and nitrate by phagocytes, acting on tumors.

Ozone is not a drug and it is not a magic bullet. It is a therapeutic tool of great power which can aid the body in regaining health. However, in the end, it is the immune system that has to do the work of healing the body. Therefore, the immune system must be functioning.
The immune system is controlled by the midbrain, the limbic system, through the thymus. The limbic system also controls the emotions. If the emotions are disrupted, the immune system is suppressed or shut down.
Since ozone has a well-known calming and analgesic effect, perhaps ozone therapy causing restoration of heartbeat regularity has a role to play in enhancing the immune system, along with interleukin-2 stimulation. Ozone is already used as a treatment for heart arhythmia. Therefore, prolonged use of ozone would enhance the immune system by contributing to a calm, even heartbeat, produced by a well-oxygenated heart pumping clean bright red blood through plaque-free arteries. A holistic approach should include work on the psyche, exercise, and nutrition, as well as ozone. By using ozone in the Sonnet steam cabinet, the patient can be easily placed in a calm and relaxed state of mind, which facilitates the unearthing of deep-seated emotional problems by a skilled therapist. The resolution of such problems often has a greater importance in the reattainment of health than all other therapies. In addition, oxidized toxins are sweated out through the skin, rather than dumped to the liver, which is important in preventing toxic shock in patients whose liver function is poor. Exercise is also an important adjunct to ozone therapy, and is not to be overlooked. The lymph system contains 90% of the water in the body and must be cleaned. Since the lymph system has no pump like the heart, the lymph tends to become toxified and sluggish. The use of a rebounder followed by the steam cabinet will go a long way towards cleaning the lymph. Nutritional supplementation needs to include organic sulphur, which is critical for the production of many essential amino acids, such as glutathione for respiration and methionine for liver function. Organic sulphur is essential for the maintenance of youthful, flexible cells. Since it is difficult to obtain in our diets, the best sources are bluegreen algae, wheatgrass juice and aloe vera. Research over 20 years has shown that aging is also related to declining production of the hormone DHEA. If the hormone is taken directly, the body halts production, resulting in a dependency. However, if the precursor, which is extracted from the wild yam plant, is ingested, the body increases its production of DHEA without developing a dependency. This precursor has now become available as Emprise Plus and as Diosin.
The combination of ozone, exercise, nutrition should ensure greater vitality and fewer degenerative diseases in our aging population as we approach the XXI century, at an affordable cost.

 

Ozone Therapy has proven beneficial effects such as:

increasing oxygen delivery to cells, tissues, and organs
increasing blood circulation throughout the body
detoxification
boosting of the immune system

Our Medical Office possess an ozone - equipment specialised in orthopaedic deseases and rheumatisms, without using any syringe.(transdermal infusion)

Routes of Administration:
1.) Intravenous injection- a direct injection of the ozone gases into the vein.
2.) Intraarticular injection- a direct injection into the painful joint.
3.) Direct injection into a tumor- ozone gases can be injected into a tumor or a cyst.
4.) Autohaemotherapy- 50-200ml of blood drawn into a bottle. The bottle is turned upside down and ozone is infused into the bottle and then transfused back to patient.
5.) Intracutaneous blistering- ozone is injected into the skin.
6.) Intramuscular- a direct injection of the ozone gases into the muscle.
7.) Subcutaneous- an injection of ozone gas performed just under the skin.
8.) Uterine insufflation- a catheter is placed into the uterus where ozone is slowly infused.
9.) Bladder insufflation- a catheter is placed into the bladder where ozone is slowly infused.
10.) Dental use of ozonated water- water that is bubbled through ozone gases and kept near freezing.
11.) Rectal insufflation- ozone is passed into the rectum through a catheter.
12.) Vaginal insufflation- ozone is passed into the vagina through a catheter.
13.) Drinking water- water that is bubbled through ozone gases and drank nearly immediately.
14.) In the ear- a slow flow of ozone gases is run through a small tube into the ear.
15.) Ozonated water enema- ozonated water is passed through a catheter into the rectum.
16.) Breathing ozonated olive oil- ozonated olive oil is breathed into the lungs.
17.) Deep lymphatic massage with ozonated olive oil- olive oil that has been bubbled through ozone gas until nearly solidified.
18.) Ozonated bath epsom salts and sea salt- bathing in ozonated water.
19.) Body suit- suit that is sealed off wrists, ankles, and neck. Humidified ozone is pumped into the body suit and lasts for 15-30 minutes.
20.) Steam cabinet- a cabinet filled with ozone gases you can sit in with your head protruding for 15-30 minutes.
21.) External limb bagging- the bag is placed over the affected area. Once the ozone is humidified it is pumped into the bag. It will kill any bacteria, viruses, fungus, or molds infecting the open wound.

    IRIDOLOGY

    Because there are many nerve endings in the iris , all linked to the body's organs, iridologists assert that examination of the eye, especially the iris, its colour and markings, can indicate problems in other parts of the body and reveal weaknesses and strengths in general health, such as a tendency towards a particular disease. And also every illness that our body has passed in the past has left a sign in the iris.

    Iridology is not a restorative therapy; it doesn't cure and it doesn't pinpoint particular ailments Iridologist identifies weaknesses or overactivity in the body so that future problems can be avoided. For example, if the pancreas is seen to be underactive, it could indicate a condition like diabetes. Iridology also recognises where toxins and inflammation could be, as well as certain chemical deficiencies. to determine your general state of health and constitution.

    For example, the area immediately around the pupil relates to the stomach and the area around that represents the intestines-bowels. It is said that the pattern of the iris is like a genetic map of the body, showing inherited traits and pinpointing weaknesses. Changes in this pattern can reflect changes in the body.

    Iridology is the science and practice that reveals inflammation, where located and in what stage it is manifesting. The iris reveals body constitution, inherent weaknesses, levels of health and transitions that take place in a person's body according to the way one lives. Iridology is the science of analyzing the delicate structures of the irid of the eye.At the end of your examination by our special camera you will get your  irises photos and we will give you also instructions of what to do and also a diet program to follow.

    FOOD INTOLERANCE

    Our test is painful and after half an hour we will have examined all kinds of food that you eat . Its an american computerised program Food intolerance is completely different from   allergy. It occurs very frequently and develops throughout the life of an individual and often spontaneously. From birth, the infant may already be sensitive to various foods through the mother’s milk. The difficulty is that, unlike   allergy, the symptoms of food intolerance, which vary greatly, may resemble those of an allergy and often appear only hours or even days after eating the food. It is therefore possible for example, that you have an intolerance to, for example, lettuce, tomatoes, potatoes, yogurt or milk, etc. The intolerance activates your immune system and causes metabolic changes, resulting in health problems without your being immediately aware of them. In general, the connection between health problems and food goes unnoticed by the people concerned. The goal of  our   multitest is to establish this connection. At the end you will take a catalogue of foods that you have to stop for three months

    How does food intolerance show itself?

    Continuous stimulation of the immune system and an inflammatory reaction, supported by repeated and continuous ingestion of risky foods, are the origin of food intolerance.
    These intolerances disrupt the intestinal function: The foods responsible are not completely assimilated and the partially digested residue mobilizes your immune system. This residue is recognized and attacked as a foreign body.
    Your immune system works hard to cope, which weakens your body.
    In addition, these chronic symptoms lead to lesions and chronic inflammations in certain tissues and the appearance of inflammatory and auto-immune diseases and phenomena, such as allergies and hypersensitivity.

    Why does food intolerance occur?

    Intolerance often results from the interaction of various elements. These may include:
    - Dietary habits that are often very monotonous
    - Mass production of food
    - Alcohol or chronic exposure
    - Age of first contact with the antigen
    - Nature and amount of the antigen
    - Frequency of administration (chronicity)
    - Stress and environmental factors
    - Intestinal infections–>disruption of the permeability of the small intestine
    - Drugs
    - Genetic predisposition
    - Immune status of the host

    What is the difference between food allergy and food intolerance?

     Most people can eat a wide range of food without any problems. But there is a small group of people allergic to particular foods or ingredients in foods. The allergic reaction can range from minor skin irritations to serious allergic shocks. An allergy means that a person’s immune system shows an excessive defence reaction to substances which in themselves are harmless – it has “forgotten” how to distinguish between harmful and harmless substances. The symptoms of an allergic reaction vary considerably. The most frequent complaints occur shortly after eating, either in the form of prickling or swelling in the mouth or throat, or as a skin rash. Allergic reactions in the gastro-intestinal tract, such as nausea, vomiting, diarrhoea or constipation, occur in relatively few cases. More seldom still are shock reactions (anaphylactic shock). These can bring about circulatory failure, which must be treated immediately by a doctor.A food allergy is one thing – a food intolerance is another. A food intolerance can produce symptoms very much like those of food allergy, but the immune system is not involved in these reactions in the same way. If you have a food intolerance, your body is unable to digest a certain kind of food or some ingredient in a food, e.g. because the required enzyme is absent or inactive. Since the digestive system is involved in most cases, the principal symptoms of food intolerance (such as lactose intolerance – link to the same topic) are flatulence, gastro-intestinal pains and diarrhoea. Allergies and food intolerances can appear in many different degrees of severity. Our food intolerence test is the one that will show you the food that you have to stop eating for three months and then your body like a miracle will forget it.So in the new examination you will see the miracle but also you will have forgotten the bloating and the kilos!!!!
