I was watching different videos on YouTube and happened to come across one that said "Autohemotherapy." I had never heard of Autohemotherapy before and was interested to know what it was. Well, the video just showed someone taking their blood from a vein and then injecting it back into a muscle but never explained as to why they were doing it. I looked up Autohemotherapy on the internet and found very little info (most of which was not in English). However, I did find the following article (in English) and found if interesting (mostly because it is a method to boost the immune system without medicine):
Talking to Dr. Luiz Moura (http://autohemoterapia.fortunecity.com/aht_english.htm)
(Dr. Moura uses Autohemotherapy(AHT) since 1943) What is auto-hemotherapy?
It is a simple technique where by drawing blood from a vein and injecting it into a muscle stimulates an increase of macrophages that are, let us say, the "municipal cleaning company" of the organism.
The macrophages carry out a cleansing of everything. They eliminate bacteria, viruses and cancerous cells which are called neoplastic cells. They do a spring-cleaning, and even eliminate the fibrin, which is clotted blood. The increase in the production of macrophages by the bone marrow occurs because the blood in the muscle works as a foreign body to be rejected by the Reticulo-endothelial System (RES). While there is blood in the muscle, the Reticulo-endothelial System is being activated. The maximum activation only finishes at the end of five days.
The normal rate of macrophages in the blood is 5% (five percent) and with the auto-hemotherapy, we raise this rate to 22% (twenty-two percent) during 5 (five) days. From the 5th (fifth) to the 7th (seventh) day, it starts to drop, because the blood in the muscle is coming to an end. And when it finishes the rate returns to 5% (five percent). This is the reason why the technique dictates the auto-hemotherapy should be repeated every 7 (seven) days.
This is the reason why auto-hemotherapy works. It is a very low cost method, needing only a syringe. It can be done anywhere because it doesn't depend even on a refrigerator - simply because the blood is drawn in the moment it is applied into the patient, nothing being required to be done to the blood. There is no technique applied to this blood, only a person who knows how to puncture a vein and apply an injection into a muscle with hygiene, and a syringe to draw the blood and apply it into the muscle, nothing else. This results in a very powerful immune stimulant.
Therefore, it is really a method that could be disseminated and used in regions without any resources, where people can't afford very expensive immune stimulants such as, for instance, those made from bone marrow. Medicines are made - I cannot say the name of this medicine, because I am not here to advertise. But it is a very expensive medicine used to produce the same effect as auto-hemotherapy. It is a fabricated lysate of veal thymus, and I can say this, it is a lysate of veal thymus. It has a commercial name, but in fact, the essence of the product is a lysate of veal thymus submitted to a digestive ferment that becomes a medicine. But it is very expensive, while auto-hemotherapy can produce the same effect at a very low cost. Therefore, it can be used by all levels of society without any problem, and this is its great advantage!
After reading that article it made me more curious so I did a little more digging and found this article:
Autohemoterapia_cures_Crohn_disease.pdf, you will see: - 2007, colonoscopy with the disease - 2008, colonoscopy after 24 applications of Auto-hemotherapy without the disease Jose Luiz Dutra's Testimony: Cured from Crohn's disease with Auto-hemotherapy My name is Jose Luiz Dutra, I am now 77 years old and live in the city of Salvador, state of Bahia, Brazil. Crohn's disease is considered incurable and is characterised by a bowel ulcer, great discomfort of the intestinal flow, weight loss and negative psychological effects. For over 10 years, I was suffering from this disease, taking traditional medicines, such as azulfim, mesacol, etc, without any improvement and having colonoscopies every year. In 2007, I learned about auto-hemotherapy from Dr. Luiz Moura's video, soon after a colonoscopie that showed my disease was stationary. My father practiced Auto-hemotherapy at his old drugstore for many years, to treat furunculosis, acnes and wounds. Penicillin or sulpha didn't exist until 1945 and the treatment of these diseases was done with Auto-hemotherapy. There has never been any case of rejection, allergicor infectious reaction in the applications he did. In 2008 I had Auto-hemotherapy for 6 months, with weekly injections of 10ml into the muscle, making up a total of 24 applications. The result obtained was a complete cicatrization of the ulcers, disappearance of polyps as proven by a colonoscopie, improvement to the intestinal tract, weight gain and general disposition. These were the results obtained. There are millions of people with autoimune diseases suffering the same as I did. I ask you to make my testimony available to everyone. God bless you, from your friend José Luiz Dutra You are seeing with your own eyes what auto-hemotherapy is able to do. Please, help to disseminate Auto-hemotherapy all over the world. Thank you.
There are many claims, all over the internet, that autohemotherapy has cured their autoimmume disease, skin conditions, etc but I am still unsure if this works. Even though I still have many questions about autohemotherapy, I do find it very interesting and intend to find out more about it. If you have more info on autohemotherapy, have personally used this method, and/or know a healthcare professional in the US that uses it to treat patients, please e-mail us at firstname.lastname@example.org
