UC and oxygen therapy?

Does anyone know wheter oxygen therapy actually helps people who suffer from UC? I'd like to hear some first hand experiences.

I really cannot help you as a sufferer of CD and no experience with oxygen therapy . Could you actually explain what it is, and what its supposed results are?

here's the link with some information:

I know people from my country (who suffer from either CD or UC) who have tried oxygen therapy and reported it really helped them. Apparently,
oxygen therapy limits the amount of inflammation in the bowels, lowers the CRP values, lowers sedimentation values ...
As oxygen therapy treatments are expensive I'm trying to get as much info about it as I can so that I can decide whether to spend 2000 euros (+ the expences for accomodation and food) for a 15 day treatment or not.

Well this is one topic I have never heard of yet. Thanks for mentioning this, it is intriguing.
