Ozone Therapy In Our Centre


Ozone therapy began in 1870 in Germany and now approved in more than 25 countries all around the world including Germany, Italy, Japan, Austria, Switzerland, Cuba and some states in the US. There are 2,000 ozone clinics in Europe alone.

Our centre-'Rawatan Ozon dan Alternatif Harmoni' is the only centre offerring ozone therapy in Pahang area.



Our brand new,state-of-the-art ozone machine

One of our client is undergoing ozone therapy (EBOO)

The therapeutic use of ozone has an excellent safety record and no toxic effects have been observed from clinical use. The use of ozone as a healing adjunct is well established and is being vigorously pursued by many scientists and clinicians. The benefits are predictable and without side effects. As technology advances, undoubtedly new techniques will enlarge the scope of the effective use of this versatile modality.

What is ozone?

Ozone is a highly energetic form of normal (diatomic) atmospheric oxygen (O²), consisting of three oxygen atoms (O³)(i.e. triatomic oxygen),. Thus, the molecules of these two forms are different in structure.

There is a cycle of oxygen just as there is a cycle of water. Oxygen is released in photosynthesis by land plants and ocean phytoplankton (mostly diatoms), and rises up in the atmosphere about 25-30 miles, where it is energized by a part of the ultraviolet spectrum of energy from the sun, producing ozone. Ozone is heavier than air and begins to descend. It immediately attaches itself to airborne particles if it contacts them, oxidizing them, cleaning the air. If it encounters water vapour, it can attach itself to it, forming hydrogen peroxide. Rain and snow both contain hydrogen peroxide naturally. That is why plants grow better from rainwater than from irrigation.
At ground level, ozone attaches itself to all pollutants, oxidizing them and cleaning the air. It has been incorrectly blamed for smog. Ozone is present in smog only transiently at around 25 parts per hundred million.

Carbon monoxide is present in smog at about 3000 parts per hundred million, and hydrocarbons at about 100 parts per hundred million. Smog is produced by the photoelectric effect of the sun's rays acting on carbon monoxide and nitrogen dioxide in the atmosphere, which are the end products when hydrocarbons are burned.

Ozone cannot be produced in the internal combustion engine because the hydrocarbon fuel quenches the spark gap. The ozone that exists in the atmosphere is produced by nature and it is attracted to pollutants because of opposite charge -- it attempts to oxidize them and clean the air. The problem is one of too little ozone to complete the job, not too much.

Ozone is also created near the ground by lightning. The fresh smell in the air after a thunderstorm is ozone. The amount of ozone created in an average thunderstorm is about three times the safe limit according to US EPA regulations.

Hydrogen Peroxide: Hydrogen peroxide, the partner to ozone, is also called oxygen water, since it is water with an extra oxygen atoms. It is found in rain and snow; the water at Lourdes; in fresh fruit and vegetables; and in clostrum, the first milk that a mother produces, where it provides a defense against infection until the baby's own immune system develops and is able to produce its own hydrogen peroxide.

In the body's immune defense, hydrogen peroxide is released by T-cells to destroy invading bacteria, viruses and fungi. Blood platelets release hydrogen peroxide on encountering particulates in blood. Hydrogen peroxide is formed in the body by microbodies called peroxisomes, which combine water with oxygen, if sufficient oxygen is available.

Diseased Cells: What distinguishes diseased cells from healthy ones? All cells derive their energy from glucose, but healthy cells burn glucose in oxygen by oxidation, while unhealthy cells ferment glucose anaerobically, producing large amounts of lactic acid. Fermentation produces only 1/6 the energy of oxidation, so cancer cells are perpetually starving for energy, and consequently have huge appetites for sugar.

This wasteful metabolism becomes self-sustaining and dominant unless the oxygen level is sharply increased. Healthy cells, which have sufficient oxygen and nutrients, manufacture an enzyme coating around them that protects them for invasion. These enzymes are catalase, reductase, superoxide dismutase and glutathione peroxidase. So long as a cell maintains this enzyme coating around itself, it is safe from invasion by viruses, and ozone cannot harm it.

Oxygen-starved cells are unable to produce enough enzymes to fortify their cell wall and are thus more vulnerable to invasion by the always-present viruses. Disease microbes have no enzyme coating. When ozone is introduced into the area, it attacks microbes without a coating and diseased cells with deficient cell wall enzymes. It oxidizes them, allowing them to be cleared from the body.

EBOO (Extracorporeal Blood Oxygenation and Ozonation) Procedure



Similar to haemodialysis, EBOO is performed by withdrawing venous blood and the same blood is infused into an oxygen-ozone gas exchange filter in an upward direction, using a specialized bloodline with a computerized peristaltic pump controlling the rate of withdrawal. Medical ozone , is introduced into this hydrophobic and ozone resistant gas exchange filter in the opposite direction from top going downwards and ozonation of blood begins.

To avoid blood coagulation during the process treatment, heparinization of the blood is done, just before the blood is infused into the filter. After passing through the oxygen-ozone gas exchange filter, treated blood is reinfused to the patient. Upon establishment of extracorporeal circuit, the withdrawal rate will be increased to a range of 60 to 80ml per minute, depending on the condition of the patient.

Study confirms mothers-in-law are the chief cause of divorces


-The Star Online May 27,2009


KUALA LUMPUR: Every married person knows it, but a local study has confirmed it – mothers-in-law are the chief cause of divorces, especially in the Indian community.
Data in the Malaysia Community and Family Study 2004 by the National Population and Family Development Board (LPPKN) revealed that “meddlesome in-laws” is the number one reason why Indian couples get divorced.
It is also among the top three factors for divorce among the Malays and Chinese. The other two factors are incompatibility (42.3%) and infidelity (12%).
“Interference by in-laws is the main reason for Indians to divorce. It is the top-ranked reason at 30%,” said LPPKN director-general Datuk Aminah Abdul Rahman when presenting a paper on Malaysia’s family profile and its effects at Institut Kefahaman Islam Malaysia yesterday.
Infidelity is the marriage breaker among the Malays and Indians but it is tolerated among the Chinese.
“Among Malays, the second most common reason is infidelity and refusal to put up with polygamy,” she said.
“Among the Indians, infidelity is the second highest ranked reason for divorce at 25%,” she said.
However, the Chinese considered infidelity as the least crucial reason for a divorce.
Cheating was at the bottom along with health and gambling addiction at 4.2%.
Surprisingly, abuse is not a reason for divorce among the Malays and Chinese, but is a reason among Indians at 5%.
“Another overall reason which ranked high among the three races at 11.5% is ‘not being responsible’,” she said.
Although it is common perception that the family institution is quite fragile and divorces are rampant, data shows otherwise - only 0.7% of the population was divorced in 2000.
The data shows that divorce is more likely to happen to those under 25 and above 40.
Meanwhile, Women, Family and Community Development Minister Datuk Seri Shahrizat Abdul Jalil said that more Malaysian women were choosing to marry later in life and it could cause a reduction in fertility rate and an ageing society.
“The National Family Policy and its action plan will address this issue of late marriages,” she said.
The policy would be presented to the Cabinet soon.

This Antioxidant Can Smash Insulin Resistance and Autoimmune Disease


Why You Need Antioxidants


Your entire body, including your DNA, is under endless, daily assault from a variety of sources, from poor diets to pollution. Think of your cells, including your brain cells, each getting hit by free-radicals thousands of times a day. This violent process is called "oxidation,” which damages your cells.
Enter antioxidants. They include vitamins and other nutrients that target free radicals.
Food, particularly fruits and vegetables, is a powerful source of these valiant protectors, and your body produces some itself. Their role is to limit the damage to your cells, which can slow down disease and signs of aging.
In the case of alpha lipoic acid, your body does produce it in minute quantities, but most of it comes from your diet. Some of the best natural sources include grass-fed red meat and organ meats.


The Benefits of Alpha Lipoic Acid


Alpha lipoic acid (ALA) has many functions, but it’s one of the most effective free radical scavengers, and the only one known to easily get into your brain.
It also has the ability to regenerate other antioxidants such as vitamins C, E, and glutathione. So, when your body has used up these antioxidants, if there’s ALA around, it helps regenerate them.
You may not know this, but glutathione is another very important antioxidant. You can get it from supplements, but the only form that works effectively is the reduced form, which is difficult to absorb when taken orally. It is much more cost effective to supplement with precursors, or items like alpha lipoic acid that regenerates glutathione.
Alpha lipoic acid also recycles coenzyme Q10 and NAD (nicotinamide adenine dinucleotide).
But, if that wasn’t enough, this powerful antioxidant is also:


-A great modifier of gene expression to reduce inflammation
-A very potent heavy metal chelator
-An enhancer of insulin sensitivity


The benefits of ALA can appear near miraculous. For example, according to Dr. Berkson, Russia has successfully used ALA intravenously to reverse ischemia reperfusion injuries by injecting it right after a heart attack or a stroke.
And people with diabetes or metabolic syndrome tend to do much better when taking lipoic acid, as it enhances insulin sensitivity.
There’s even been quite a bit of research showing it can restore T cell function. T cells are a type of white blood cells that are of key importance to your immune system, and are at the core of adaptive immunity, the system that tailors your body's immune response to specific pathogens.


What Health Conditions Can be Treated With Alpha Lipoic Acid?


Clinically, alpha lipoic acid seems to be a useful supplement in treating hepatitis C. It can also be used for painful nerve conditions in diabetes, and may help slow down the aging process itself through its reduction in free radicals.
Dr. Berkson uses ALA along with low dose naltrexone (LDN) for the reversal of a number of more serious health conditions such as:
-Lupus
-Rheumatoid arthritis
-Dermatomyositis (an inflammatory muscle disease)
-Autoimmune diseases


Most of his patients normalize in about one month on this combination of ALA and LDN.


What is Low Dose Naltrexone?


Naltrexone (generic name) is a pharmacologically active opioid antagonist, conventionally used to treat drug- and alcohol addiction – normally at doses of 50mg to 300mg. As such, it’s been an FDA approved drug for over two decades.
However, researchers have found that at very low dosages (3 to 4.5 mg), naltrexone has immunomodulating properties that may be able to successfully treat cancer malignancies and a wide range of autoimmune diseases like rheumatoid arthritis, multiple sclerosis (MS), Parkinson’s, fibromyalgia, and Crohn’s disease, just to name a few.
As explained on the informative website www.lowdosenaltrexone.org, when you take LDN at bedtime -- which blocks your opioid receptors for a few hours in the middle of the night -- it is believed to up-regulate vital elements of your immune system by increasing your body’s production of metenkephalin and endorphins (your natural opioids), hence improving immune function.


Can Alpha Lipoic Acid Help Your Workout?


Alpha lipoic acid can be a potent aid when you exercise vigorously.
In my interview, Dr. Berkson gives an anecdotal story about a friend – an international weight lifting champion – who regularly uses ALA prior to meets.
Unfortunately, there are no set guidelines on dosage and timing. It can be highly individual, and is something that requires a little bit of trial and error in order to get it just right.
But if you suffer from any of the conditions listed above or diabetes it would certainly seem like a useful supplement to consider

Case Report: A Successful Treatment For Diabetic Wound Using Maggots

Abstract

We present a case of 57 year old man with diabetic ulcer post amputation of his 5th toe in which Maggot Therapy was used with astounding result.

History

Mr. R who has background history of poorly controlled diabetes, underwent a Ray's amputation of his fifth right toe one week earlier. Following that, we noticed that the wound was slowly healing despite strict two times daily dressing with antiseptics.

With the advice of a senior colleague, we introduced a type of alternative, natural method to speed up the healing process.This is called Maggot Therapy or Maggot Debridement Therapy (MDT).


The Method




Day 0-observe the slough (dead tissue) inside the wound





Day 0-About 300 maggots were applied to the wound.(observe the tiny size of each of them).The gauze was put around the wound as 'doughnut' shape to avoid the maggots from escaping.



The maggots were left in the wound for 48 hours




Day 2 -look at the 'well-fed' maggots!




Day 2-the wound after all the maggots taken out.much better!





Day 10- the completely healed wound!


Conclusion

Maggot therapy is an effective and safe method to be used together with modern medicine to treat slow healing wounds.

Discussion

Maggot Debridement Therapy (MDT) is the medical use of specially selected and tested, disinfected fly larvae ("maggots") for cleaning non-healing wounds.
Medicinal maggots have been found to have four principle actions: 1) they debride (clean) wounds by dissolving the dead (necrotic), infected tissue; 2) they disinfect the wound, by killing bacteria; and 3) they stimulate wound healing; and 4) they break down and inhibit the formation of biofilm.


Historically, maggots have been known for centuries to help heal wounds. Many military surgeons noted that soldiers whose wounds became infested with maggots did better --- and had a much lower mortality rate --- than did soldiers with similar wounds not infested. William Baer, at Johns Hopkins University in Baltimore, Maryland, was the first physician (an orthopedic surgeon, actually) in the U.S. to actively promote maggot therapy; his results were published posthumously by his colleagues in 1931. MDT was successfully and routinely performed by thousands of physicians until the mid-1940's, when its use was supplanted by the new antibiotics and surgical techniques that became available by the end of World War II.


Maggot therapy was occasionally used during the 1970's and 1980's, when antibiotics, surgery, and other modalities of modern medicine failed. In 1989, physicians at the Veterans Affairs Medical Center in Long Beach, CA, and at the University of California, Irvine, reasoned that if maggot therapy was effective enough to treat patients who otherwise would have lost limbs, despite modern surgical and antibiotic treatment, then perhaps we should be using maggot therapy before the wounds progress that far, and not only as a last resort. It was on this hypothesis that the modern era of maggot therapy was born. With repeated conttrolled studies demonstrating enhanced wound debridement and luscious healthy granulation tissue growing where once only necrotic (gangrenous) tissue was visible, maggot therapy has once again been adopted by thousands of modern wound treatment centers around the world.

Polystyrene-The 'White Coffin'!!



Enough talking about 'swine flu' for a while.Ehh..lupa..Liow Tiong Lai suruh panggil Influenza A H1N1. Whatever la..2 x 5.

Hari ni Pakcik nak highlightkan pasal polystyrene ni yang banyak kita pakai untuk 'menapau' makanan kat gerai-gerai atau restoran. kalau dulu masa Pakcik kecik-kecik, diorang pakai kertas suratkhabar je..lepas tu pakai kertas yang kaler coklat tu...tapi sekarang dah tak pakai dah...kebanyakannya pakai polystyrene je..teknologi la katakan...senang dan murah..tapi the drawbacknya..pengguna-pengguna macam kita la yang akan menanggungnya..(dan anak cucu-cicit cuit kita)





So what is polystyrene actually?

Polystyrene actually dihasilkan dari petroleum!

Polystyrene tidak boleh diuraikan (non-biodegradable).Ianya mengambil masa berpuluh malah beratus tahun untuk ianya musnah sepenuhnya dari alam sekitar.

Polystyrene mengandungi Styrene dan Benzene iaitu sejenis carcinogen yang disyaki menyebabkan pelbagai jenis barah dan juga neurotoxic (berbahaya kepada saraf/otak) manusia

Bekas makanan/minuman polystyrene akan membebaskan Styrene ini jika diisi dengan makanan atau minuman panas, makanan berasid atau berminyak

USM melalui NC nya Prof Datuk Dzulkifli Abdul Razak telah mengambil langkah yang bijak dengan mengharamkan penggunaan polystyrene di seluruh kampus USM


CAP juga melalui presidennya, S. M. Mohamed Idris telah lama menyedari perkara ni dan telah mendedahkannya di dada-dada akhbar. (berapa ramai yang baca, compare dengan berita artis yang kawin cerai, tangkap basah etc)
http://thestar.com.my/news/story.asp?file=/2009/2/23/focus/3286623&sec=focus

Kita berharap kerajaan (KKM terutamanya) membuka mata tentang bahaya yang terkandung dalam polystyrene dan mengambil langkah sewajarnya!

Dan anda juga!

Makanlah dalam pinggan (kaca lebih bagus),kalau nak tapau, suruh mamak tapau pakai kertas suratkhabar atau apa salahnya bawa tupperware sendiri dari rumah! he he..

Mudah, bukan?

Selamatkan bumi dan lebih penting, selamatkan nyawa anda dan generasi selepas anda!
