Abstract This case report deals with a 45-year woman who suffered from chronic ulcerative rectocolitis, initially treated by allopathic drugs and subsequently only by holistic natural therapy. Whereas no satisfactory results were obtained with the first treatment, the second therapeutic approach was entirely successful. As is known, rectocolitis is a chronic pathology characterized by inflammatory and degenerative lesions of the bowel mucosa. Although its aetiology is still unknown, genetic, immunologic and environmental factors have been implicated. From September 1997 to February 2000 the patient was treated in different hospitals and at home with numerous drugs including anti-inflammatory medication, antibiotics, immunosuppressive, cortisone-like and anti-depressive substances. Since no acceptable positive effects were obtained, she opted for natural holistic therapy. The following clinical picture was recorded by us: 1) rectocolitis with ulcers, characterized by 20-30 bloody diarrhoeal bowel discharges per day; 2) severe anemia, hemoglobin being 5.2 g%; 3) severely imbalanced water status; 4) joint pain in numerous regions; 5) cough with abundant transparent catarrh, particularly the during night; 6) sleep loss due to cough and bowel discharges; 7) variable intensity fever; 8) depression due to home confinement; 9) no possibility of work; 10) total discouragement with physicians and official therapy. The holistic natural therapy consisted in two different modalities of oxygen-ozone therapy: a) rectal insufflation of a mixture of oxygen-ozone with a low concentration of ozone (10-12 mg of ozone in 1 mL of oxygen) 2-3 times a week for a long period; b) major ozonated autohemotransfusion with the addition of homotoxicological drugs once a week for a long period. At the end of July 2000, patient decided to stop treatments because she was healthy. She then continued with treatments every month up to the month of July 2001. After that no further therapy was given up to the last check-up in October, 2003, the patient being in good health.
