Rectal Insufflation

Rectal insufflation with an ozone/oxygen gas mixture is increasingly being used as a systemic therapeutic form, and it is viewed by many as an alternative to Major Auto Hemo Therapy.   It is simple, lost-cost, and nearly void of adverse reactions when administered in the proper dosage.

Locally, rectal insufflation can help treat:

  • Icerous colitis
  • Proctitis, stages I and II
  • Anal fistulae and fissures

Systemically, this form of therapy can be used for:

  • Indications cited for MAH
  • Hepatitis B and C
  • Immunomodulation

It is often recommended that an enema or colonic of some kind be used prior to the insufflation.

Cuban literature recommends an ozone concentration of 40 μg/ml and 200 ml, for a duration of 20 daily sessions.

German literature recommends rectal insufflation 10–25 μg/ml max. 300 ml

Russian literature says the procedures are done with Janet syringe or with a help of special poly-chlor-vinil tube with a patient lying on the left side with knees bent. Purgative enema is to be done two hours before the procedure. Rectal insufflations are done with the ozone concentration in ozone/oxygen mixture of 10-60 mg/l, the volume ranges from 150 ml to 1,000 ml, depending on the pathology, its course, and stage. For newborns, the volume is 20-50 ml, and for children it is 50-100 ml (H. Dorstewitz, 1990).

American authors set the following concentration levels:

  • 1st treatment – 20 μg/ml  and 100 cc
  • Increase daily by increments of 5 gamma and reach a final gamma of up to 40 μg/ml and up to 400 cc or as the patient can tolerate.  This continues for a 21-day cycle, stops for 2 months and then repeats if needed.

The Madrid Declaration is more conservative and puts rectal ozone in three application doses.

Low 10 μg/ml and 100 ml
Medium 20 μg/ml and 100 ml
High 30 μg/ml and 150 ml LOW RANGE
