A NEW APPROACH TO VAGINAL INFECTIONS
DR. DAN CALMAN
Dr. DAYAN – HOLISTIC MEDICAL CENTER
The frequency of Vaginitis is difficult to ascertain.
increased numbers of organisms such as Gardnerella vaginalis, Bacteroides, Mobiluncus, and Mycoplasma hominis .
single-celled protozoan parasiteTrichomonas vaginalis.
Trichomonas is associated with many perinatal complications and an increased incidence of transmission of HIV.
Vaginal candidiasis, Fungal infection of the vagina,sometimes called thrush.
Approx. 75% of women will experience an episode of vulvovaginal Candidiasis
RECCURENT DISEASE IS MORE DIFFICULT TO TREAT !!!!!
A NEW APPROACH TO VAGINAL INFECTIONS !!!!!!!
Some pathogens fail to survive at high temperature levels.
Extremely vulnerable to heat.
At high temperature Candida transforms into its protective form (hyphae).
If not treated in 3 weeks it will return to its original form.
Thus, the second session should be performed exactly 3 weeks later.
Succumbs to temperature above 40ºC, and dies in not more than 35-40 minutes.
Treatment is performed by inserting a probe into the patient’s vagina, the probe being heated gradually by circulating water.
An animal study in a canine model demonstrated no thermal damage to the vaginal epithelium. (Factor, J; 1993, Beilinson)
Stand on their own as effective modes of treatment for recurrent /chronic Vaginitis
(Vaginal douching with low concentration Ozone)
(VaginalHyperthermia with the Gynatherm)
EFFECTIVITY ENHANCEMENT !!!!!
Heat Vasodilatation Vaginal blood supply (and O2) Enhancement+ Bacterial Eradication
Ozone Enhanced O2 supply to the tissue+ Bacterial Eradication
Both treatment methods enhance bacterial eradication + vaginal tissue regeneration
Research Protocol (anamnesis, physical exam., PAP smear, microbiological culture)
No AE reported
