    Has anyone been to the Y&C Institute of Medical Rehabilitation in Cyprus or another intensive IV ozone clinic? Or heard of anyone benefiting?

    I ask not because I'm considering going, but because I'm interested in the results of intensive IV ozone (both acutely and over time).

    ---------------------------

    Some background...

    Y&C Institute of Medical Rehabilitation in Cyprus is an in-patient medical clinic in Nicosia, Cyprus. They treat a variety of patients including many with ME/CFS, Lyme, and poorly defined autoimmune conditions.

    Their protocol consists primarily of intensive IV / MAH Ozone twice daily, 6 days a week for a 4-5 weeks. This is augmented with IV Vitamin C, Laser Blood Irradiation (ILBI), mHBOT, and various detox protocols.

    I should note that I'm generally wary of such clinics as they make big promises, underdeliver, and overcharge. But from what I've seen on Facebook, various blogs, and YouTube, Y&C seem to be delivering results. I take this as a proxy for the benefits of IV Ozone.
    ---------------------------

    Tagging...
    @mariovitali because I know he's currently working in Cyprus
    @lizh because she mentioned planning on going to Y&C

    Edit: There is another similar clinic in Cyprus called Neomed and others in Bali, Thailand, Malaysia, Canada, and Mexico

    Some anecdotal patient accounts from around the web...

    This is one from Kelly, severe Chronic Lyme patient in Australia who had to quit her job and move in with family after falling ill.

    Her initial state:
    Her protocol in Cyprus
    Her results at week 5

    Her results at 6 months
    Her results at 1 year

    This one comes from a couple with moderate (husband) and severe (wife) Lyme.

    There seem to be a lot of Australians with ME/CFS and suspected Lyme going to Cyprus. My impression from all the anecdotes posted on the FB group is that while there are a few success stories like the ones above, most experience small gains and then relapse within a few months of returning to Australia.

    Thanks Art. Interesting to hear that. Do you know if they continue with maintenance ozone upon returning home? My understanding is that in most cases that's essential

    No idea I'm afraid. I imagine ozone treatment isn't easy to get (or cheap) in Australia.

    A lot have been going to Bali and Thailand for extended periods instead of Cyprus (since it's significantly cheaper) but I'm yet to see a success story.

    Apparently there's more than one. After a quick search, one in Bali that turned up is Neogen Ozone Clinic. It appears there are some in Malaysia too.

    Got it. Seems there are more in Cyprus as well...

    Neomed in Moni, Cyprus also treats ME/CFS with intensive ozone

    https://neomedinstitute.com

    A highly polished patient testimonial, nonetheless her initial symptoms sound quite a bit like ME



    Some nice drone footage lol



    Interesting both Cyprian clinics have Dr. Yuri Nikolenko as their resident ozone specialist

    @mariovitali

    no need to do anything, just wondering if you'd heard anything about these ozone clinics from people in your community, and your thoughts on intensive IV ozone in the context of your research findings

    Sure, i will ask a group of ME/CFS patients here to see if they know about this. Regarding my research, from a first look it appears that there is no connection with ozone but i will have to explore this further.

    Hi


    I went to the clinic one year ago. I was extremely ill for 3 years, originally diagnosed with CFS/ME but after 1-year blood tests came back positive for Lyme disease. I was given a clinical diagnosis for Bartonella based on rashes and Babesia based on symptoms. I was around 90% bedbound. I had been to St George in Germany for 3 weeks of treatment and I became sicker after treatment. I went to the clinic in Cyprus for 6 weeks and went from being at around 10% to around 40%. One month post clinic I jumped to 60% and have stayed at that point for most of the last year.

    However, I had two relapses over the last year that lasted a few weeks. I have not been able to get ozone treatments in my country so I am returning to the clinic for another 4 weeks of treatment this summer. Overall I cannot speak more highly of the clinic. They brought me back to 60% after being extremely ill for 3 years and although it wasn't a full recovery I am so much better now then before and I am hopeful I will reach 100% after another few weeks of treatment.

    Most of the people I have stayed in touch with from the clinic have all made progress (not 100% though but significant progress). I am not badmouthing St George in Germany but only one patient that I have stayed in touch with has made a recovery from that treatment so this clinic seems to have far better outcomes (that i know of anyhow)It is different for everyone though. I am happy to answer any questions people might have

    Just to clarify the clinic I went to was NeoMed Institute in Limmasol (it is a sister clinic of Y&C institute which is in Nicosia). Dr Yuri heads up both clinics and patients in NeoMed usually see Dr Yuri on their first and last day of treatment
