Clinical Study: Ozone Therapy Works on mild to moderate Covid-19

Submitted by Green Monkey

Good News! A new peer reviewed study from India adds to the accumulating evidence that Ozone Therapy is effective against mild to moderate Covid-19.  


Safety and efficacy of ozone therapy in mild to moderate COVID-19 patients: A phase 1/11 randomized control trial (SEOT study)☆

SNIP

Participants from OZ group didn’t show any requirement of supplemental oxygen, ICU admission and mechanical ventilation whereas standard group demonstrated 10% subjects requiring mechanical ventilation, ICU admission and two of which led to two fatalities. The results on mortality and need for advanced care in both groups in our study were comparatively better than the preliminary report published on Ozone safety among COVID-19 patients [26]. This indicates the need to integrate Ozone therapy in to the existing care. Integrating Ozone therapy in COVID-19 care not only reduces the mortality but also will be very strategic to accelerate recovery of COVID 19 patients presenting mild to moderate severity to getting into the advanced COVID-19 stages.There is strong relationship between symptom regressions and severity of COVID 19 [27]. Our results that subjects in OZ group were relieved of cough, breathlessness more effectively than ST group that can check the severity of COVID-19.One of the strong correlation to avoid bad prognosis in COVID 19, is to exert faster reduction in viral titre [28]. Antiviral activity can reduce pulmonary infiltrates and pulmonary tissue damage. There were 77% subjects from Ozone treated group showed negative RT-PCR on day 5 and all 100% got negative RT-PCR on day 10. This clearly declares advantage of faster eradication of virus from body which could be attributed to the antiviral potential of Ozone therapy.

SNIP

Conclusion: Our study suggests that Ozone therapy is safe and effective to be used in COVID-19 patients who are in mild or moderate stage of the illness. Governments and policy makers should consider including Ozone therapy in the existing level of care which could possibly reduce the requirement of advanced treatment facilities and reduce morbidity and mortality rate. However, future studies are warranted to understand the magnitude of this change in these multiple domains that are affected by COVID-19.

The problem with the report’s authors’ call for more trials to get a better picture of the true extent of Ozone Therapy’s effectiveness will be in finding willing sponsors to fund more controlled, double-blind trials on the product. There is no way to patent Ozone Therapy such that it could provide a revenue stream to justify the expense involved in holding those trials.   

Ozone Therapy has been advocated by its proponents as useful and effective for treating a wide range of bacterial and viral infections and as well, to relieve various chronic, painful, and debilitating health conditions e.g., joint pain/arthritis, autoimmune diseases, multiple sclerosis etc.  It has an established safety record since it came into use around the turn of the 19th/20th century.  The first patent for a medical ozone device was in fact awarded to none other than Nikola Tesla in 1896.  With the rise in prominence of allopathic medicine in the first 20 to 30 decades of the 1900s (increasingly based on an approach of prescribing patented, pharmaceutical drugs as a primary treatment option), Ozone Therapy fell out of favour with the orthodox medical establishment, but it has survived over the years among alternative medical practitioners such as naturopaths.

Today there is a slowly increasing awareness of the many reports of Ozone Therapy’s benefits and hence enhanced interest by medical doctors on investigating the effectiveness of Ozone Therapy – somewhat more so, perhaps, with the advent of Covid-19.  Covid-19 we were told had no existing viable medications as treatment options, leaving us no choice but to lockdown, isolate, sanitize, and wear a mask (or two or three)  while we waited for Pharma’s white coated, lab scientists to provide us with another vaccine.  The medical regulatory and advisory bodies like the FDA, WHO, CDC etc. have not been keen to promote the use of ozone, throwing up the objection that there are no large scale, clinical, double-blind studies to permit official endorsement. (See my comment on clinical trials above.)

Note that Ozone Therapy does not involve patients breathing ozone gas into their lungs, as this would be very damaging to the lung tissue.  Instead, a small portion of ozone, O3, is mixed with a much larger part of regular oxygen, O2, and injected by IV or needle directly into the bloodstream (note there is no danger of the injection of the ozone/oxygen gas mixture causing an embolism), inserted into the body by rectal or vaginal insufflation, or even by insufflation through the ear in some cases. 

Ozone Therapy seems to be slowly gaining recognition (perhaps more so in Europe, than in North America) as a viable treatment option, and especially so for conditions that have not responded to standard allopathic medical approaches.  Dr. Robert Rowen MD of Santa Rosa, California claims to have successfully and safely used Ozone Therapy in his Functional Medicine practice for 30+ years and has co-authored a peer reviewed article in 2019 promoting the efficacity of Ozone Therapy as a treatment option for use by all medical practitioners: 

Ozone and oxidation therapies as a solution to the emerging crisis in infectious disease management: a review of current knowledge and experienceRobert Jay Rowen, MD1,* and Howard Robins, DPM2

The world is facing a serious crisis over the rise of “superbugs” resistant to antibiotics. These drugs ushered in the modern medical era and its most unfortunate paradigm of single pharmaceutical drugs to allegedly treat disease. Tens of thousands worldwide are dying of resistant bacterial infections, and viral diseases which, in general, we’ve never been able to treat well.Yet right before us, Nature has provided a literally eternal, highly effective solution – oxidation stimulants. Ultraviolet light in sunlight destroys germs. Ozone (as found in the upper atmosphere), which can be medically generated, destroys bacteria largely on contact. It oxidizes crucial proteins on viral membranes which effectively “chops off their fingers” so they can’t open the cookie jar (entry into cells where they propagate). Ozone therapy stimulates utilization in your body of the most important element of healing: oxygen. Ozone has been found to modulate your immune system and reduce the toxicity of inflammation, a key mechanism of morbidity in infection. Ozone has also been found to treat infection on its own, and also in synergy with antibiotics.

Dr. Rowen also maintains a YouTube channel. In this YouTube video he explains why he believes Ozone Therapy could be an effective treatment option against Covid-19 were it to receive wider acceptance by regulatory bodies and the medical establishment.

  • Phillips: Back at square one
    BARBADOS IS BACK at square one and the partial lockdown which was extended from two weeks to four has not been effective, says president of Solutions Barbados, Grenville Phillips II.
    Phillips is also calling for Government to implement a national self-quarantine period during the upcoming Easter holiday. He was speaking on the phased reopening of the country which takes effect from today.
    “To waste a three-week partial lockdown should not have been an option. The Government should plan an effective two-week self-quarantine, between the Good Friday to Easter Monday public holidays. This should have the least impact on the economy. The public should be encouraged to prepare for the national exercise,” he suggested.
    Phillips told the DAILY NATION his party had recommended a twoweek self-quarantine period, and supported the Government’s plan to rapid-test people around the island.
    “This would have provided an accurate estimate of the spread of COVID-19 in Barbados. It would also have allowed every infected person to recover from a two-week quarantine, or be identified for treatment. Every nonessential person should have been at home for five days. After the fifth day, one person in each household should have been tested for COVID-19, using all available Government resources,” he said. Phillips said at the end of the two-week quarantine period, the economy should have reopened with no restrictions.
    “To prevent another community spread, every visitor to Barbados should undergo a properly managed 14-day quarantine. By this time, Barbados should have been COVID-19 free, with all cases being known, isolated, and treated. Instead, we managed it badly and are back at square one,” he said.
    He added: “Of course any initiative badly managed is likely to fail. It is time for the Government to stop rejecting the obvious international management solution (ISO 9001), just for political reasons.”
    Phillips said the rapid testing did not happen in each household, and it seemed the COVID-19 vaccines came at an inconvenient time.
    “Given the importance of implementing the self-quarantine to control community spread, the rapid tests should have been done as scheduled. It seems that the nurses who were supposed to do the rapid tests were reassigned to administer the vaccines. The Government has not admitted this, but it is a reasonable explanation. Their silence on such glaring critical changes to a good plan attracts unnecessary criticism,” he stated, adding if nurses were not available, then the tests should have been administered by trained technicians.

  • Prepare for mandatory jab for some activities
    ALTHOUGH IT IS too early to think about making the COVID-19 vaccine mandatory for travelling, doing so for some activities is something that people must be prepared for.
    That’s the view of executive director of the Caribbean Public Health Agency Dr Joy St John, who said accessibility to the vaccine was a prohibitive factor in making it mandatory.
    “How can you make something mandatory that is not equal in access to everyone the world or is not even in the supply for the eight billion people that we have in the world?” she asked during a webinar Friday night held by School of Business and Management entitled Debunking The Myth Of The COVID-19 Vaccine Part 2.
    She further said that “the attempts to make a vaccination mandatory for certain activities, especially commercial activities, is something that I think we need to prepare for”.
    Internist/clinical pharmacologist and Deputy Dean of the UWI’s Faculty of Medical Science, Dr Kenneth Connell concurred saying: “I don’t think we’re even at that point in the conversation as yet because the access in many countries isn’t there. But I think we will get there in months, years to come. And in special conditions for instance, will health care facilities require it?”
    He noted that having to “show proof of immunity to various conditions” before being accepted to an institution was” not unusual” and “it would be interesting to see moving forward how countries legislate this”.
    “And it really would depend on how well we out the fire because if the fire is completely out, or just simmering in some small points in the world, then it’s probably not that important because you have a sufficient population that has the herd immunity effect that you don’t have to mandate these things,” he said.
    Moderator Professor Justin Robinson, the executive director and chief executive officer of the School of Business and Management and head of economics, The UWI’s Cave Hill Campus, said “the issue [mandatory vaccines] might arise with travel going forward and that might be an issue where some countries might req“uire it”.
    Public policy
    He also said he thought it was “an interesting issue which can have significant public policy implications going forward’ and that it was a matter “Caribbean countries have to look out for because it will become an issue as vaccines become more accessible”.
    Meanwhile, Dr Michelle Reece, another panelist, said that as much as the onus is on governments to continue sharing “clear, accurate information” about the coronavirus vaccine. To allay fears it was equally important for those who have correct information to disseminate it.
    “People are spreading things on Facebook and Instagram and when you start sharing that stuff, it gets momentum and sometimes that’s the only place people go for their information or for their news. So, we have to find all avenues to combat that and it’s not just the job for the government. Those of us who have accurate information need to get it out there,” she said. (GBM)

    If the virus is in the water and is spread that way, all the lockdowns in the world will not make it go away.

    Government would just be locking people in their houses and supplying the virus to them for use in their tap water.

    When they bathe there is a chance they will get it.

    When they wash up wares there is a chance they will get it.

    When they wash vegetables there is a chance they will get it.

    Lockdowns on their own will not work.

    The virus has to defeated in the water before any lockdown has a chance of working.

    If it is defeated in the water a lockdown will get rid of it.

    Vaccination will become mandatory for any travel as a guard just like Yellow Fever vaccination is mandatory for travel to some countries.

    But we got to beat it in the water.

    That is the main goal to be achieved.

    Why use “if” as a supposition?

    We thought you were quite ‘cocky’ sure that the Covid-19 virus was indeed in the water distributed by the BWA?

    Why are you now back-peddling from your call for the GoB to follow the water treatment protocols set by Singapore, NZ and Australia in order to avoid a collapse of the population in Bim?

    Why are you not calling on the GoB to ban the importation of bottled water unless it is sourced from the same Singapore, NZ and Australia in order to defeat Covid by “beat(ing) it in the water” on all fronts and from all sources (fo(u)nts) which are not following the same exemplary standards of water treatment as set by Singapore?

    What’s so special about sewage-treated or river water bottled in Trinidad that makes it Covid-free?

    Has it been blessed by some Catholic, Spiritual Baptist, or Voodoo priest or Hindu pujari or Muslim imam to turn it into ‘(w)holy drinkable water’?

    ++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++

    The public water supply wells in Barbados have zoning around them.

    Zoning means water has a travel time to get to the well.

    Travel time means the bacteria and viruses have a chance to die off completely or be reduced to such low concentrations as to be negligible.

    Singapore desalinates sea water straight from the sea.

    They have no problems because their process reduces the possibility of virus getting into the drinking water if not to zero then almost zero.

    … and they do it day in day out because their lives depend on it.

    We need that technology and work ethic.

    Desalinated water starts at sea level.

    You are safer in the country the higher up you go!!

    No public water authority is going to pump it up beyond a certain level, electricity is too expensive.

    The higher up you go the less chance it will be distributed there.

    It follows that in all likelihood, there will be clusters below the 200 foot contour, possibly between the 200 and 400 foot contour.

    Unlikely to be higher.

    I know of one cluster which fits like a glove!!

    … and the rather astute observation regarding the lack of the COVID bus up in St. Thomas kind of supports what I am saying.

    So way I look at it is if you live in the Green area you are unlikely to be supplied from the desal plant.

    If you live along the coast, there is a good chance you will get some of the water from the desal plant.

    So I would expect clusters lowdown, probably not in the Scotland District.

    Not much higher up.

  • Immunity certification for COVID-19: ethical considerations

    Introduction:

    Most countries have adopted restrictive public health measures to control the coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19) epidemic caused by severe acute respiratory syndrome coronavirus-2 (SARS-CoV-2). These measures include physical distancing, closure of schools and businesses, requirement of face cover- ings and travel restrictions. While effective, the measures have severe social, economic and health effects.1 In the absence of a vaccine or specific effective treatments, countries such as Chile,2 Germany,3 Italy,4 United Kingdom of Great Britain and Northern Ireland,5 United States of America,6 and the city of Madrid in Spain,7 have expressed interest in immunity certification to exempt individuals who have recovered from COVID-19 from restrictive measures; Estonia has developed software to support the digital implementation of such cer- tification.8 Immunity certification would provide individuals who have recovered from COVID-19 with a document – so- called passport or certificate – certifying them as immune to
    COVID-19 (or at low risk of reinfection) based on a reliable test: serological testing for antibodies against SARS-CoV-2 is the most commonly proposed method.

    Population seroprevalence studies from several countries suggest that only a minority of the population is likely to be infected during the first epidemic wave of the pandemic.9,10 Immunity certification would therefore exempt only a small fraction of a country’s population from restrictive measures if applied now or in the near future. In general, governments are trying to find ways to ease some restrictions while also minimizing public health risk. For most countries, this eas- ing has meant lifting restrictive measures gradually and in phases based on certain criteria such as epidemiological data, health system capacity, capacity for surveillance test- ing, isolation of infected individuals and contact tracing to suppress spread.11–13 In doing so, governments recognize that they may need to reverse course and impose more restrictive measures again, if public health data show increasing spread of SARS-CoV-2.
