Doctor of Technical Sciences, Professor Evgeny Ivanovich Nazarov (Asian-European Union of Ozone Therapists and Manufacturers of Medical Equipment, Odessa, Ukraine) presented a review on use of ozone, hydrogen and xenon in medicine.
Practicing doctors, doctors and candidates of medical and technical sciences from Kazan, Krasnoyarsk, St. Petersburg, N. Novgorod, Odessa, Kiev, Lviv, Tbilisi, Chisinau, shared their experience in the use of ozone in various fields of medicine.
Neurologist Hatkevich Anastasia Sergeevna, St. Petersburg introduced the method of carboxytherapy.
Dr. Zornitsa Petrova-Markantova, from the Czech Republic, reviewed the achievements of the current state of hydrogen therapy in Europe.
The great interest of all those present at the conference was attracted with the master class, conducted by Doctor of Technical Sciences, Professor E.I. Nazarov and candidate of technical science T.A. Gluhenkaya, according to local intra and extracorporeal methods of ozone therapy and hydrogen therapy using equipment of the company Econika (EBOO-RU, multipass – BAGTO, etc.)
During the Conference, with representatives of the ozone therapists association from the countries of the European Union, Russia, Ukraine, Turkey, Georgia, Moldova, President of the Asian-European Union of Ozone Therapists, Professor E.I. Nazarov, proposed to add the word “medical gases’’ in to the name AE of the Union of Ozone Therapists. This change reflects the trends of their widespread usage in medical practice. In addition, it was suggested to themembers of associations from the above countries to join the AE union, and each year to choose a country whose representative will join the union and will carry out its leadership for a year. During the discussion of this issue, all participants in the working group agreed with the proposals of E.I. Nazarov and decided to join the AE Union after a discussion in the associations of ozone therapists in the above countries.
