Ozone Therapy in the Clinic of ENT (Ear, Nose, Throat) Diseases
In the otorhinolaryngological praxis medical ozone is primarily used as a therapeutic agent with powerful bactericidal, virucidal, fungicidal properties, detoxication effect in the treatment of suppurative inflammatory diseases of ENT organs with consideration to their polyetiological factor. It also performs an important role in the stimulation of pagocytosis and regulation of cellular and humoral immunity.
N. Altman (1995) summarizing the available experimental and clinical experience of world practice of ozone therapy in his book "Oxygen healing therapies" wrote that ozone has been used in the oncology for about ten years.
The works dedicated to investigations into the action of ozone in malignant tumors were made by the scientists from Germany, Cuba, the USA, Italy, Switzerland and have been recently continued in Russia.
The foreign researches based their attempts at using ozone in the oncology on two discoveries.

The use of ozone in dentistry is gaining its place in every day's dental practice and is used in almost all dental applications. The undisputed disinfection power of ozone over other antiseptics makes the use of ozone in dentistry a very good alternative and/or an additional disinfectant to standard antiseptics. Minimally Invasive Dentistry is now the new Standard of Care in all disciplines of dentistry, most importantly in preventive and operative dentistry. So far, arresting and reversing the process of tooth caries without invasive treatment are unpredictable and rely very much on patient's compliance. Recent research and clinical studies on the use of ozone in treating early tooth caries without cavitations are very promising and are showing that it is now possible to arrest and reverse these lesions in a predictable and repeatable way without invasive intervention. These findings are establishing a paradigm shift, a revolution in dentistry.
Here you can find the list of eye diseases and recommended methods of local ozone therapy. The systemic methods of ozone therapy (minor and major AHT with ozone, ozonated saline drips) are indicated in case of generalized process for disinfection, desintoxication, anti-ischemic defense, normalization of the oxido-reduction system, immunomodulation.
The progress of today medical science is oriented to development of new technologies allowing not only highly effective treating diseases, but also preventing them, increasing the vital potential of the organism.
One of such progressive approaches is ozone therapy.
