The healing therapy has been known for a long time and is being used in many Clinics. Typically the therapy is done in a bathtub, an aqueous medium. BODYREG® offers a CO2 treatment that can be conducted in any medical practice.
A crucial advantage for optimal results: The new BODYREG® offers the patient a comfortable humidification and preheating of CO2 during the application, which leads to an increased resorption of the medicinal gas.
Due to the CO2 treatment there is a significant increase of the transcutaneous pressure of oxygen in the bloodstream and tissue. The results are: increased blood flow in the tissue and organs and improved microcirculation. The transport from the lymph is increased; the vessels dilate and lead to lowering the peripheral resistance, which provides relief to the heart. Additionally,the systolic blood pressure is lowered.
Another positive effect of the CO2 treatment is the pain-relieving effect, known as “Quellgas-Insufflations-Therapy.“ The CO2 released by the aerobic metabolism fulfills two important tasks while transported to the lungs in the bloodstream. By binding to the hemoglobin its affinity for oxygen will be reduced so that the oxygen can more easily diff use into the surrounding tissue. Additionally, the conversion of the CO2 in bicarbonate produces a highly effective buffer system, which neutralizes acids, particularly lactic acid.
During the treatment, the patient can lie down or sit, able to move freely, in an airtight case. To prevent the CO2 from leaking, the case is sealed under the armpits or at the neck with an elastic belt. First, using a hose system, the air is sucked out of the casing, before the CO2 is introduced into the case.
The patient feels pleasantly warm and a slight tingling sensation. This causes a deep relaxation associated with a significant improvement in heart rate variability. The treatment duration and intervals are based on the nature and severity of the disease. A set of set of 10 to 20 treatments, with each treatment lasting 50 to 60 minutes is recommended for optimum results.
