Will one or two consultations magically turn your situation around?
There are no ‘magic pills’ or ‘cure-alls’.
Don’t throw away money hoping that a mere one or two consultations, or one or two medical ozone treatments will cure a complex medical problem of several years standing, for which you have seen several doctors, whether GPs or consultants. My advice is that unless you really make an effort and are prepared to embark on a long-term strategic, usually multi-layered health plan, you will be disappointed. If you are not prepared to do this, save your money and use your spare cash for something that you or your family will enjoy, especially if your funds are tight.
Costs for Patients
Getting better takes time and diagnostic effort both on the part of the doctor and the patient.
Without doubt, a minimum of four to six consultations will be involved. Generally in our experience, patients will usually improve incrementally – even at the 2 to 3 month stage, there generally has been substantial progress. Full/semi-full resolution of complex problems will generally take 12-24 months. To initially investigate a long-term illness generally absorbs about €1,200+ in laboratory fees. Treatment will involve the cost of nutritional supplements and pharmaceuticals. There may also be the cost of IV and/or ozone treatments. However the prize of restored health is something really worth fighting for. Poor health can make life very difficult indeed. People ask “does your approach work?”. Generally it seems to, even in situations that look pretty hopeless (please note, I am not referring to late-stage cancers) and where the chance of a good outcome seems very unlikely. I would not be doing this work or offering this service if, overall, we did not get good to excellent results for our patients. Instead I would be a mainstream GP.
Some typical reasons why patients come to consult us:
The majority of our patients, before seeking our services, have consulted with numerous practitioners, both medically qualified and non-medical.
Occasionally, these patients may depict themselves as being at the end of their tether.
The investigations will have been conducted thoroughly and competently prior to reassurance being provided, but with no explanation for the symptoms having been discovered.
Patients have been told: “All your tests are satisfactory. Would you be interested in a referral for stress management, or alternatively, exploring the option of antidepressants or stronger anti-inflammatory medication?”. Additionally some have been told: “Counselling or having a discussion with a psychiatrist regarding your mental health and stress may also be beneficial”.
In other situations, there will be a firm diagnosis, but the treatment being used is proving of limited assistance.
Examples of conditions that pertain to this group are fibromyalgia, post-viral fatigue, and ‘functional’ neurological syndromes, alongside PMS/PMDD, IBS, inflammatory bowel disease/Crohn’s disease/UC. The list here is a long one and goes on. We also treat eczema, asthma, psoriasis, long-term itch, urticaria etc.
Patients seeking prolozone treatment for pain problems:
Prolozone is used to solve pain issues in joints such as the neck, shoulder, knee, ankle, finger, as well as lower and upper back pain. Prolozone usually also works for carpal tunnel. I have had mixed responses with hip pain.
Specifically Female Pelvic Pain Problems:
One to three pelvic injections will work extremely well for severe period pain.
Female patients also seek prolozone for unexplained long-term pelvic pain and sexual difficulties, frequently caused by endometriosis, and also for interstitial cystitis. This procedure can also be useful for urge incontinence.
There is more extensive information in the section Chronic Pelvic Pain in Women.
Male Urinary and Genital Issues:
Male patients suffering from chronic prostatitis and non-specific urethritis can use ozone as a stand-alone treatment. We have found this very helpful.
Benign Prostatic Hyperplasia: We have found ozone treatment extremely effective here also.
Please see much more extensive information on our Problems treated Frequently page.
Before consulting us, please make sure you have been checked out by your GP:
If you experience any new red-flag symptoms like a suspicious morning headache with nausea, significant new-onset fatigue, or change in bowel habit, and you’re over 40 years old, it is important to see your GP for proper evaluation and treatment, before embarking on any non-standard medical treatment.
Standard, conventional medicine ought to be the first port of call for you – which means you ought to see your GP with any worrisome complaints. No one system of medicine is perfect, however standard medicine is excellent at diagnosing significant or life-threatening disease, and must not be by-passed.
