Hepatitis C is an inflammation of the liver that is transmitted primarily through blood or blood products, less often through sexual intercourse. In addition to chronic alcohol abuse Hepatitis C is the second most common cause of liver cirrhosis and liver cancer.

New studies presents another option in treating of Hepatitis C and that is a therapy with pure oxygen. Already for a long time in medicine known antiviral and fungicidal action of gaseous ozone-oxygen mixtures. A new study has now shown that such an ozone-oxygen mixture in patients with chronic Hepatitis C improve the symptoms of those affected as well as the liver function tests could. About 25 percent of patients after therapy with mixture were no longer detectable hepatitis C viruses.
Important in the treatment of hepatitis C is also the consistent abstaining from alcohol. Also, you need medication, which can help shunned of burden the liver.
