AHT kit is the first kit made available to the public for the practice of the complementary and alternative medicine (CAM) known as Autohemotherapy. This carefully designed kit includes a month supply of equipment that will make it easy for you to draw your own blood (phlebotomy) and then inject it into your own muscle.
These are diseases where your immune system produces antibodies that attack your own body (autoimmune antibodies). Any area of the body may be affected. There are over a hundred Autoimmune Diseases, Click Here. Some of the more common ones are: 1.) Rheumatoid Arthritis (RA) where antibodies are produced that attach to the lining of your joints causing inflammation, swelling and pain. 2.) Systemic Lupus Erythematosus (SLE) where antibodies attach to tissues of the body like lungs, kidneys, nerves and blood cells (causing anemia). 3.) Inflammatory Bowel Disease (IBD) where the immune system attacks the lining of the intestines. Ulcerative Colitis and Crohn's Disease are two major forms of IBD. 4.) Type 1 Diabetes Mellitus where antibodies attack and destroy insulin producing cells in the pancreas. 5.) Guillain-Barre Syndrome where antibodies attack nerve cells. 6.) Psoriasis where the immune system stimulates the rapid reproduction of skin cells producing scaly plaques on the skin. 7.) Graves Disease where antibodies stimulate the thyroid gland causing an excess of thyroid hormone ( Hyperthyroidism). 8.) Hashimoto's Thyroiditis where antibodies attack the thyroid gland causing damage and preventing the production of thyroid hormone (Hypothyroidism). 9.) Vasculitis where the immune system causes damage to blood vessels. Vasculitis can affect any organ in the body. 10.) Celiac Disease which causes damage to the lining of the intestinal track. 11.) Scleroderma, a connective tissue disease. 11.) Multiple Sclerosis, an autoimmune disease where immune cells attack and damage the myelin sheath covering nerve fibers resulting in the disruption of nerve signals. Back to Our Story
Autologous Whole Blood (AWL)
Blood used in autohemotherapy is your own (autologous); it is whole, meaning you are using all components of the blood (both serum and cells) you are not seperating anything out before you inject it. The blood used is preferably taken from a vein in the bend of the arm but if you happen to have a huge vein on your forearm and it is easlily accessible, use it. Do not use blood from a varicose vein because this blood has been pooling in the vein and is not as stimulating as freshly circulating blood. Also if you are a diabetic do not use veins on the legs or feet.
When practicing Autohemotherapy there will be at times some bruising due to the seepage of blood into the surrounding interstitial tissue but it’s not actually a bruise, it just looks like one. An actual bruise is caused when there is a rupturing of the capillaries (tiny blood vessels) under the skin. In Autohemotherapy there is no damage done to the underlying capillaries.

An example from an individual who was doing Autohemotherapy for their arthritis mentioned that within the first couple of months they had an increase in aches but the pain was different from the pain caused by arthritis. It was still very manageable because of the increase in their energy level. Eventually this individual was off all pain medication within two months. They too have said they will continue to do this therapy for as long as they can. Back to Our Story
The reason behind doing Autohemotherapy everyday is similar to the way antibiotics work. After you take your first dose of antibiotic you achieve a certain level (a boost) of it in your blood. You then continue to take your antibiotics on a regular basis until a therapeutic level is reached. At this point the antibiotic is able to help the body effectively fight off the infection. You then maintain this therapeutic level in your blood by continuing to take the antibiotic at regular intervals. Stopping or forgetting to take your antibiotic will cause blood levels to fall causing the antibiotic to become less effective in helping the body get rid of the infection. The bacteria could spread and also become resistant to the antibiotic. By doing your therapy everyday your immune system will continuously run at a controlled optimal level. We found that after 48 hrs of not doing your therapy your immune system starts to return to pre-autohemotherapy levels. Increasing the amount of blood that you inject will not create a stronger or longer immune response. So in this case more is not better. Also, less than 1ml of blood injected will not create an adequate response. The blood has to be injected into muscle tissue for optimum results, injecting into fatty tissue does not elicit a proper response. Back to Our Story
While doing Autohemotherapy your body still comes into contact with bacteria and viruses. You may feel the symptoms of a cold or flu; have a cut that's red and sore, just take an extra injection halfway through the day for a couple of days. If you have experienced some sort of an injury, take extra injections. If you are suddenly under a lot of stress due to anything, like your job, a death, family problems, take extra injections to get you through the rough patch and then go back to once a day. Maybe you are trying to overcome drug addiction, take extra injections of your blood. There is no hard and fast rule to this, you just have to see how it works for you. Back to Our Story
Hitting a Nerve
Hitting a nerve gives you a bit of a burning sensation in which case you can either bear with it or remove the needle and inject the blood into another area of the muscle. Back to Our Story
Numerous clinics are popping up promoting Autohemotherapy with the use of ozone. I would like to discuss the use of ozone in Autohemotherapy and why we promote ozone free Autohemotherapy, but first what is ozone. Ozone is an inorganic molecule with the chemical formula O3. It is a pale blue gas made up of three oxygen molecules with a distinctively pungent smell. It is less stable than the oxygen O2 molecule. Ozone is naturally present in low concentrations in the Earth’s atmosphere. If you are familiar with a certain distinct smell in the air after a lightening strike, that is ozone, oxygen being converted to ozone via the electrical charge of the lightening. Ozone is a powerful oxidant (far more so than oxygen) and has many industrial and consumer applications related to oxidation such as being used as a disinfectant and cleaner. The high oxidizing potential of ozone causes damage to mucous and respiratory tissues in animals, and also tissues in plants. This makes ozone a potent respiratory hazard and pollutant near ground level.
The process for Autohemotherapy using ozone involves drawing a certain volume of blood from the patient into a container containing an anticoagulant. This anticoagulant prevents the blood from clotting. Ozone (< 5%) is then mixed with medical oxygen (> 95%) and depending on the antioxidant capacity of the patient’s own blood, a certain dose of the gas mixture is combined with the sample of blood. The blood and gas are mixed together and then infused back into the patient.
Studies show promise for the use of ozone in Autohemotherapy but the medical effect depends upon a critical balance between an appropriate small dose of ozone and an almost infinite number of reacting variables in the blood along with the variability of the biological response depending upon enzyme reactivity and the stage of the disease.
Autohemotherapy (without the use of ozone) has already been shown to be beneficial in the treatment of human disease. It is a natural blood therapy; nothing is added and you do not need to add anything. This simple effective form of Autohemotherapy is something you can do yourself, in your own home, saving you time and expense.
Practicing Autohemotherapy While On Chemotherapy, Radiation treatments, or Medicines.
Autohemotherapy is beneficial to you regardless of whether or not you are on Chemotherapy, Radiation or taking medicine. If anything it will help you recover faster, heal faster and feel better quicker than you normally would if you were not doing Autohemotherapy.
