Ozone as treatment for immunological problems

Posted in Scientific research, Therapeutic treatments by Matt at WelcometoIllinois on December 3, 2008

We found our this morning that our little boy has a chest infection and is being put on antibiotics again, which is something we would like to keep to a minimum.

He is pretty strong and healthy but does seem to suffer from colds more than his brother, so it’s not a major worry but is a reminder that Down’s syndrome often comes with immunological problems.

Which brings me to this story about research underway in Cuba to trial using ozone as a therapy for blood, nutrition and hormone problems, as well as issue with the immune system.

According to the report the study will be run at the Sancti Spiritus’s pediatric hospital with the cooperation of Havana’s Ozone Investigation Center and the first phase will see researchers try to determine the blood biochemical disorders of 30 children with Down’s syndrome which makes them vulnerable to different diseases.

This will lead to clinical trial of ozone as an anti-oxidative agent to improve the immune system.

    I’m not a doctor and don’t even play one on TV, but we’ve had great success by giving our daughter a daily dose of kid’s vitamin C. We also use an acidophilus supplement when needed (like while she’s on and after antibiotics). We get an acidophilus capsule, which we open and sprinkle the correct dosage into milk or a little water. That combination seemed to improve her overall health greatly.

    Thanks for the tip. I’m frustrated now though – “I’m not a doctor and don’t even play one on TV” – where is that from?
