Treatments which show real promise

multi pass ozone therapyStandard ozone therapy delivers a maximal ozone dose of approximately 12mg. Multi pass ozone treatment delivers an ozone dosage 11 to 12 times greater i.e. approximately 140 mg. The treatment takes 1 ½ to 2 ½ hours.

Ozone increases the number and efficiency of the mitochondria (energy batteries) in cells throughout the body, helps the immune system in fighting persistent infection and improves oxygen delivery to the tissues.  This advanced form of ozone treatment is used on humans in the United States, Germany and Austria and China. It also is being used on racehorses around the world – particularly in   in the Middle East. Racehorses run much better after ozone!

When you have decided that standard pharmaceutical/surgical medicine is not working for you and before you embark on functional medicine investigation and treatment I would like to offer you a few words of advice.

STAGE 1:

3 stages to functional medicine stage 1TRYING TO ESTABLISH A MEANINFUL DIAGNOSIS AND FIND MEDICAL HELP

[This advice is really directed towards those individuals suffering from conditions such as unexplained fatigue/M.E. , post viral fatigue syndrome, fibromyalgia, chronic ‘benign’ pain syndromes, persistent and recurrent infections such as bronchitis or vaginal thrush that keeps coming back again and again, anxiety disorder, depression not responding to antidepressants, headache, migraine, sleep problems et cetera and the list goes on….and on]

IF THE STANDARD TREATMENT ISN’T WORKING FOR YOU

3 stages to functional medicine stage 2Let’s take things another stage further. Suppose you give a decent trial to the treatment which has been offered but it doesn’t work. At this stage the general practitioner and/or the specialist - not to mention the unfortunate patient – all are beginning to run out of options. You may find yourself being offered a prescription for antidepressants or you may find yourself being offered a referral to psychotherapy.

MAINTAIN A GOOD RELATIONSHIP WITH YOUR FAMILY DOCTOR

3 stages to functional medicine stage 3Even though you may not be finding a solution for your medical problems please understand that in almost every circumstance your doctor is genuinely trying to do their best.

How your doctor has been trained to think about this stage of the ‘therapeutic relationship:

If you are a patient suffering from unexplained symptoms then it may help you if I explain the standard medical education mindset a little - most doctors have been trained in a pretty black/white diagnostic environment and that doesn’t really seem to have changed since my medical education in the late 1970s.

Now have a little smile:

The Tack Rules from Dr. Sidney M. Baker

track the rulesIt was a wonderful doctor called Sidney McDonald Baker MD [Sag Harbour in New York] a superb clinician, Yale medical graduate, and former Yale academic whom I had the pleasure of learning from and hearing lecture in the 1990s who formulated and named The Tack Rules.

First there’s the One Tack Rule which states: “if you have a tack in your shoe then it’s going to take an awful lot of psychotherapy to get rid of it”. 

The Two Tack Rule says: “if you have two tacks in your shoe then removing one will not necessarily guarantee that you will feel 50% better”.
