Autohemotherapy involves taking blood from the patient and injecting it into the muscle. Naturopaths assure that this treatment treats infections, allergies and even depression. However, it is not recommended by representatives of academic medicine. What are the charges against autohemotherapy?

Autohemotherapyis a so-called stimulus treatment. The body is stimulated to fight the disease by a specific stimulus, in this case the blood.

In autohemotherapy, the patient's blood is used, but only as the so-called hook. It is not a medicine in itself, but it makes the body stronger to fight the real threat.

This method is very popular in alternative medicine and brings good results. It consists in injecting deeply into the gluteal muscle of the patient his own blood, taken a moment earlier. Venous blood is taken in a small amount: 2-5 ml. Only pure blood can be used for injection, but some doctors mix it with hydrogen peroxide, sodium chloride solution (saline) and homeopathic medicines to enhance the therapeutic effect.

How does autohemotherapy work?

Treatment with your own blood is as old as the world. Hippocrates himself knew it and allegedly used it. Probably everyone has heard about cold cans. Forgotten for a few years, today they are back in favor and not only by their last grandmothers. Chinese rubber vacuum bubbles are home to every woman who wants to move with the times! He can make an anti-cellulite massage with them, or heal the whole family during the disease. What do the canisters have to do with blood injections? Well, both treatments have the same effect in the body. The bubble causes a hematoma, and the blood injected into the muscle also becomes a kind of hematoma. And the body, at first glance, perceives a build-up of blood in the wrong place as something alien to fight against. He's basically cheated, but the machine moves - the immune system is awakened, antibodies begin to be produced, and immunity increases. In a word, the body mobilizes to fight, it becomes stronger. When dealing with a hematoma, he quickly realizes that he is not a dangerous intruder, recognizes the blood as his own, i.e. harmless, and redirects his forces to fight infections and otherbody problems.

In which diseases does autohemotherapy help

  • respiratory infections such as colds, flu, bronchitis, pneumonia, sore throat and pharyngitis, tonsillitis, and laryngitis

What do conventional doctors say?

Unfortunately, autohemotherapy has no scientifically proven effectiveness (ie no one has studied it). The official position of doctors on this issue is that the collection of injection material in an outpatient setting does not guarantee sterility, there is no guarantee of safety. Autohemotherapy is also not, of course, reimbursed by the National He alth Fund. It is used in alternative medicine at the therapists' own responsibility. Therefore, before deciding to use this method, you should find a trustworthy doctor who has the appropriate, professional and certified equipment.


A mechanism similar to autohemotherapy works in the case of bruises. The Chinese even use pinching as a special healing massage. Painful, but very effective. A certain doctor, a Berlin surgeon, professor August Bier, noticed at the beginning of the 20th century that bone fractures heal faster if there were also bruises in their vicinity. And if as a result of a fracture a patient did not develop a hematoma naturally, he would inject his own blood into the area around this place.
