Abstract

Dementia is, probably, one of the most fearful diseases for aging and worse-managed from the clinical point of view, which aggravates still more its prognosis, not only for the patient but also for the society in which he or she lives. 250 patients suffering from no curable senile dementia (vascular, degenerative or mixed etiology), received daily ozone by rectal application (20 sessions) in doses according to the enzymatic status of each patient. They were evaluated by clinical examination, psychometric tests, Hachinsky scale, Katz index, Hamilton test and Minimental test, at the beginning and the end of the treatment. An important improvement was attained in the medical (75 %) and mental conditions (75 %), and in the daily life activities (76 %), for all kind of dementia, with an enhancement in the vascular dementia. No side effects was observed. This therapy is recommended in the treatment of no curable senile dementia.

Abstract

Parkinson's syndromes are present frequently in the third age, with a high tendency to produce disability. The aim of this paper was to study the effectiveness of ozone therapy in the improvement of the elderly autonomy, as well as the quality of life of patients suffering from Parkinson's syndromes of different nature, taking into account some therapeutical properties of ozone. A sample of 90 patients with this diagnosis were treated with rectal ozone (during 20 sessions) and physiotherapy. A complete neurologic and psychometric examination was performed to each patient, at the beginning and the end of the treatment. The results demonstrated that all symptoms and signs studied improved after the treatment, fundamentally the rigidity and tremor (93 %), the gait (86 %) and the bradyphrasia (83 %). The daily life activities improved in 79 % of the treated patients. No side-effects or intolerance were observed.
