Laparoscopic Gastric Bypass in Los Cabos, Mexico

Now that the New Year is here, many of us are starting to think about getting healthier.  Diets will be started, and gyms will be full of new and eager members looking to get and stay in shape.  Unfortunately for many, despite so much effort, many find it difficult to maintain long-term weight loss.

The Roux-en-Y Gastric Bypass (RYGB)

The Roux-en-Y Gastric Bypass (RYGB), (often referred to as laparoscopic gastric bypass) restricts food intake and decreases the absorption of food. It is one of the most common types of bariatric surgery and is performed usually when exercise and diet have not given long-term results, or when there are health issues.

The RYGB procedure helps to lose excess weight and also reduce the risk of various health diseases, including:
    • High blood pressure
    • High Cholesterol
    • Gastroesophageal reflux
    • Heart Disease
    • Type 2 diabetes
    • Infertility
    • Obstructive sleep apnea
    • Stroke

About the Procedure

The RYGB involves making up to 6 small incisions in the abdomen through which a small scope connected to a video camera and surgical tools are inserted. The Bariatric Surgeon staples the top portion of the stomach so it is separated from the bottom to create a small stomach pouch, which restricts food intake. The jejunum, -a section of the small intestine, is then attached to the small stomach pouch allowing food to bypass the lower stomach, the duodenum. This bypass reduces malabsorption (the amount of calories and nutrients the body absorbs).

Am I a Good Candidate?

RYGB is considered as the gold standard procedure for weight-loss surgery by the American Society for Metabolic and Bariatric Surgery and the National Institutes of Health and it is recommended if your body mass index (BMI) is 35 to 39.9 (obesity) or 40 or higher (extreme obesity).

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).
