Disorders which we treat regularly

Disorders we would be happy to help you with and where we expect a good to excellent outcome based on individual case studies
There are some mini case-histories below

ENERGY- very good to excellent outcomes generally

  • Chronic fatigue syndrome
  • Unexplained Daily Fatigue
  • Post Viral Syndrome
  • Long Covid

NEUROLOGICAL:  very good to excellent outcomes generally

  • Post Stroke to help recovery (ozone has an excellent track record anecdotally but in Ireland awareness is vey low) – so we never get asked about ozone post-stroke
  • Cognitive decline
  • ADHD and poor attention span
  • Parkinsons Disease – (ozone and functional medicine both have a very good track record anecdotally but in Ireland awareness of these treatment options is vey low) – so we never get asked about ozone post-stroke

AGING CHANGES: very good to excellent outcome. This works best when a family member also works closely along with us and comes to visits so that treatment is well co-ordinated. Now if someone has an advanced dementia then really we  are powerless but if it’s a case of the parent beginning to ‘slow down a bit mentally’ and the motivation is there with patient and family then much can usually be done   to help turn things round

Sometimes we are asked to see Mum or Dad (most frequently Mum) who is aging and sometime ‘losing interest in life and slowing down with lots of aches and pains’

PAIN: very good to excellent outcome both with conditions like headache and migraine and also musculoskeletal pain. The exception is hip pain – see note below*. I wouldn’t stake my reputation on promising a good outcome on a hip problem

  • Headache and Migraine
  • Sinus Pain even if severe and persistent.
  • Musculoskeletal and Joint Pain ( we use Prolozone treatment for many of the pain problems we see). Generally we get good to excellent responses with all joint s except the hip. The response in hip pain is less consistent – see note below.
  • Shoulder Pain, rotator cuff, frozen shoulder
  • Wrist Pain both for osteoarthritis and RA of wrist
  • Carpal Tunnel
  • Back Pain (Pretty decent success even where standard back injections have failed)
  • Neck Pain (Pretty decent success even where standard neck injections have failed)
  • Hip Pain – *Prolozone response is less consistent for hip problems – if, when you put the ankle on the side of the affected hip on the opposite knee, you can get your lower leg semi-parallel to the floor then there is a decent chance the injection may work. If not then don’t waste your time and effort on Prolozone for your hip – instead discuss surgical referral with your GP.
  • Knee Pain even as a means of deferring an eventual knee replacement.
  • Ankle Pain
  • Plantar Fasciitis
  • Morton’s Neuroma
  • Whole Body Pain e.g. as in fibromyalgia (this needs a comprehensive approach)
  • Period Pain and Dysmenorrhoea – usually a predictably odd response
  • Pelvic Pain- some patients struggle with years of pelvic pain whether it is a bladder problem or sometimes endometriosis. Some responses may be very dramatic, and life changing and enable things such as the resumption of sexual intercourse.
  • Pain related to autoimmune Disease Processes

INFECTIONS: very good to excellent response, usually.

  • Recurrent Infections i.e. the infection happens over and over again
  • Recurrent Tonsillitis
  • Recurrent Sinus Infections
  • Recurrent Chest Infections
  • Recurrent urinary Tract infections
  • Infections/Infective Symptoms which will not go away.
  • Long Covid
  • Influenza/chest i/throat/sinus infections which refuses to ‘go away’.

SKIN/ DERMATOLOGY: very good to excellent outcome

  • Eczema
  • Psoriasis
  • Persistent Itch /Urticaria and other skin rashes which ‘come and go’.
  • Dry/uncomfortable skin disorders

WOMENS HEALTH /GYNAECOLOPGICAL: very good to excellent outcomes to report.

  • Unexplained Pelvic Pain
  • Endometriosis
  • Difficult sexual Intercourse – we also see patients who are having psychotherapy following sexual abuse who feel that they also need a body-based treatment for their pelvis because Frankenhauser technique can often be the missing piece which really starts to crystallize recovery.
  • Lack of Female Sexual Desire
  • Interstitial Cystitis Pain (In addition to a broad functional medical approach we also would often use the Frankenhauser Technique). We have had stunningly good results with interstitial cystitis.
  • Chronic/persistent vaginal discharge
  • Premenstrual Syndrome (PMS)and – we have many consistently wonderful and heart-warming case histories of treating both PMS and PMDD
  • Premenstrual Dysphoric Disorder (PMDD)- we have many consistently wonderful and heart-warming case histories of treating both PMS and PMDD
  • Premature Ovarian Failure
  • Pre- conception health tune up and detoxification (allow eight months minimum please- I don’t want to be detoxifying people at the same time they are trying to get pregnant – its not the best thing for your baby)
  • Difficult Menopause
  • Persistent Breast Pain and Discomfort

MENS HEALTH – Prolozone treatment for the prostate has been very helpful for this patient group.

  • Chronic Prostatitis /Nonspecific Urethritis
  • Benign Prostatic Hypertrophy

ALLERGY AND INTOLERNCE – very good to excellent outcomes. In many of these cases mast cell disorder may be involved

  • Allergy and asthma,
  • Hay fever and chemical sensitivity including multiple chemical sensitivity.
  • Multiple Food reactions
  • Light and Sound Sensitivity

AUTOIMMUNE DISEASE – good to excellent to amazing outcomes. We treat both underlying causes and work on improving quality-of-life. We do not replace your GP/immunologist/ rheumatologist/ gastroenterologist but will help you get the best response from your medicines and hopefully reduce the need for escalating drug dosing and recurrent steroid / crisis management.

  • Rheumatoid Arthritis
  • Thyroid Disease/Hashimoto’s
  • Inflammatory Bowel Disease /Regional Enteritis – we are consulted more frequently regarding Ulcerative Colitis than Crohn’s disease.
  • Dermatomyositis
  • Scleroderma
  • SLE
  • Non-Healing Ulcers

LUNG DISORDERS We treat both underlying causes and work on improving quality-of-life. We do not replace your GP/respiratory consultant.  Many people who come to see us have ‘asthma’ as an ongoing background problem and, quite frequently, over time they suddenly notice they just haven’t needed their inhalers in a long time.

  • Asthma
  • Interstitial Lung Disease
  • Dermatomyositis

GASTROENTEROLOGY- Vast experience treating successfully treating irritable bowel syndrome, significant positive experience treating unexplained nausea, significant experience with ulcerative colitis, very limited experience with Crohn’s disease* because we are rarely asked to treat it.

  • Irritable Bowel Syndrome
  • Persistent or unexplained nausea

*Inflammatory Bowel Disease /Regional Enteritis –please note we have much more experience with Ulcerative Colitis than Crohn’s disease

POST SURGERY – small numbers of patients but excellent results. Dramatic results usually with non-healing surgical wounds.

  • Feeling Weak /Slow Recovery after major surgery: Ozone

Orthopaedic Leg wound not healing after eight weeks hospital treatment in a teaching hospital. Broke down within 48 hours each time the patient tried to bear weight. Treated with ozone (ten pass) and IV nutrient infusions on Friday morning. Wound closed and formed a stable scab by Saturday evening and the pain in the wound/scar disappeared. A few more ozone treatments were given so as ‘to be sure to be sure’.  Wound did not break down again and has remained perfect and well-healed and the patient has resumed a normal life, once more.

DIABETIC FOOT CIRCULATION – Ozone can be life-changing. Colleagues across the world report saving patients from planned amputations.

  • Diabetic Foot and leg ulcers:  Colleagues across the world report saving patients from planned amputations. Patients who had unresponsive

MAST CELL DISORDER AND MOULD TOXICITY – we have vast experience of successfully treating patients with these issues.

WEIGHT LOSS usually successful treatment. If the weight loss is due to cancer then the chances of success are much lower.  

  • Weight Loss non-specific or due to diseases other than cancer.

CANCER PATIENTS

At Drummartin Clinic we do not claim to have any effective treatment for cancer as such

Cancer is a most contentious area medico-politically. Ozone definitely, in my opinion, has substantial benefit as an add-on treatment and is better accepted by oncologists in some mainland EU countries – try to get your oncologist on-side. There are some research papers you may wish to share with your oncologist. Throughout the history of medicine there have always been unscrupulous medically qualified practitioners who cynically promised magical cancer cures merely to separate patients from their funds. If anyone ever promises a sure-fire cancer cure then run away immediately.

Cancer and Toxins Detoxification of toxins and environmental chemicals can help theoretically long-term with better outcome and, at least theoretically, reduce the risk of recurrence.

For cancer patients undergoing chemotherapy:  

There is good quality case-report evidence suggesting that ozone treatment will significantly reduce or eliminate the side -effects of chemotherapy.

And

There is good quality case report evidence that using ozone during chemotherapy improves tumour oxygenation thereby improving the patient’s response to chemotherapy

NB If your veins are very poor post-chemo then rectal ozone is NOT uncomfortable and can do a very nice job of helping.
