Patrizia Barrueco is a Partner Success Manager at TaqTik and works with leading healthcare providers around the world to ensure TaqTik members receive top services, quality and pricing. Patrizia explores the anticancer benefits of proton therapy, with Quironsalud in Madrid, Spain.
What is proton therapy?
Proton therapy is an application of nuclear medicine, a type of external radio therapy that uses a proton beam to irradiate the tissue that has been affected by a tumor. Proton Therapy is the treatment of choice for many types of cancer, since its efficiency is equal to, or superior to conventional radiotherapy, and causes less side effects. As of today, over 130,000 patients have been treated with proton therapy at the 58 existing facilities throughout the world. It is expected that in 2020 there will be 125, over twice as many.
Benefits of proton therapy
The many benefits of proton-beam therapy include:
  • Minimal or no radiation delivered to the area surrounding a tumor
  • Lower total radiation dose per treatment
  • Substantially decreased risk of secondary tumors
  • Better quality of life
Madrid’s proton therapy center
QuironSalud Medical Care Group and leading Belgium proton therapy company IBA Iron Beam Applications, have built the first proton therapy center in Madrid, Spain. This center is at the disposal of patients from both public and private healthcare and it offers treatments for patients with cancer.  It also serves a space for innovation and research, with projects that will seek to improve the results of the oncology treatments and the quality of life of their patients.
The most advanced and safest technique
Due to the physical properties of protons, proton beam therapy is currently the world’s most advanced and safest radiation therapy technique for certain tumors.

Fighting Cancer with Ozone Therapy

Patrizia Barrueco is a Partner Success Manager at TaqTik and works with leading healthcare providers around the world to ensure TaqTik members receive top services, quality and pricing. Patrizia explores the anticancer benefits of ozone therapy, with PR Medica in Los Cabos, Mexico.

Ozone therapy works on the principle that medical grade ozone (O3) can trigger healing responses in the body. Used to increase the amount of oxygen in the body, Ozone therapy introduces ozone into the body through autohemotherapy. This process draws blood from the patient and exposes it to ozone. The blood is then re-injected directly into the vein. The history of Ozone Therapy dates back to 1950’s Germany and studies its effectiveness in a variety of conditions and illnesses. 

What is ozone?

Ozone is a form of oxygen that is composed of three oxygen atoms. It is the addition of the third oxygen atom that gives ozone its remarkable medical properties by making it a ‘supercharged’ oxygen atom. Ozone is found naturally in the body. In fact, our white blood cells make ozone as part of their immune response to sickness. 

Benefits of ozone therapy

Ozone therapy stimulates the immune system to speed up healing. It also has anti-inflammatory properties that reduce swelling and pain. It’s an effective antibiotic, improves circulation with an increase of blood flow, relieves muscular aches and pain, builds muscle and dissipates fat, boosts energy levels so your body stays healthy, fights infection and speeds recovery.

Conditions that benefit from ozone therapy include: 

  • Cancer
  • Meniscal tears and joint disorders
  • Shingles (herpes zoster and herpes simplex)
  • Herniated discs
  • Diabetic ulcers and venous stasis
  • Allergies and chronic sinusitis
  • Lyme disease
  • Alzheimer’s and senile dementia
  • Arthritis
  • Autoimmune diseases
  • Cardiovascular disease
  • Chronic hepatitis
  • Chronic bladder conditions
  • Macular degeneration
  • Colitis
  • Crohn’s
  • Tinnitus
  • Vaginal infections
  • Chronic Fatigue Syndrome
  • Fibromyalgia
  • Candidiasis
Natural benefits of ozone therapy

Medical ozone is such a wonder for the treatment of cancer because it doesn’t harm healthy cells. It oxidizes and destroys unhealthy cells including cancer cells, viruses, bacteria, fungal cells and other unwanted cells. 

How does it affect only the unhealthy cells? Ozone (O3) is broken down by normal cells in the blood. Once in the body tissue, it is reduced to a single oxygen and hydrogen peroxide by enzymes such as catalase. Malignant cells lack these enzymes and ozone oxidizes the outer layer of their cells and causes tumour cell destruction (lysis). 

“Even for cancer, there is only one prime cause. Summarized in a few words, the prime cause of cancer is the replacement of the respiration of oxygen on normal body cells by a fermentation of sugar.” – Dr. Otto Warburg (two time Nobel Peace Prize in Medicine). 

PRMEDICA is one of the best clinics offering Ozone Therapy in Mexico, so you can combine your treatment with a wonderful time in Los Cabos. This destination is famous for its beautiful sunsets, whale watching, Cabo Pulmo Marine Park and other spectacular attractions.
