Autohemotherapy | 10 de julho de 2009
Medicine is the art of curing. I have only one commitment to my patients: easing their suffering and, when possible, curing them. This is why I don't respect the so-called scientific standards. For me what proves something is the effect of the treatment. If it brings benefits to the patient it is a scientific treatment, even if we don't know what is the mechanism of action of this treatment. I use resources whatever they are - to benefit patients, so they are relieved of their suffering and, if possible, cured.
As I have an investigative mind, I am not satisfied with this and try to find a solution, something that will satisfy me, that I can understand how the treatment worked. For instance, in the case of allergies: having auto-hemotherapy the patient has a great improvement. Actually, allergy is not even a disease, it is an exacerbated reaction of the Immune System, due to the great number of attacks that human beings suffer day to day. The polluted air they breathe, the food that contains preservatives, but that cause damage, colouring agents used in food. All these are aggressions and therefore the organism of the most demanding people fight too much against it. There is already a well founded suspicion that very allergic people are less likely to have cancer, because they have a more diligent Immune System, more activated. This is already a suspicion. It has not been proved.
I tried to find a solution to explain what allergy is and what the cure through auto-hemotherapy represents. And I have made up a theory that satisfied me: as the allergen is a foreign body, it is not accepted by the Immune System, hence the fight against it, resulting in consequences to the patient. If someone has an allergy to inhalants, what happens? The person starts to sneeze, trying to eliminate the allergen through catarrh. If this allergen goes to the lungs, the Immune System produces a secretion to try eliminating these allergens through a cough. In reality it is a means of defence, it is not even a disease, it is a defence against what is causing harm, what should not exist in the air the person is breathing should not also exist in the food the person is eating.
What happens when auto-hemotherapy is used? These allergens end up going into the blood, they end up fixating themselves, passing to the lungs, passing to the nose and to the blood. Because all of these organs are full of blood. When the Immune System goes to fight this allergen, it will identify the allergen, capture it and will try to eliminate it as a foreign body. At the same time, it will discover how to inactivate the allergen, how to fight against it, since it has been identified as a foreign body, inducing what is called immune tolerance. It ends up accepting as its own what was considered an enemy before.
The greatest allergist known to the world lived 2,000 years before Christ. He was called Mithridates, a Greek king. When he was 10 years old, he discovered that taking tiny and increased doses of 2 poisons used to kill the kings, cicuta and arsenic which were put into the wine - he would become immune. I don't know how he discovered this. I know that his pleasure was always to have a wine taster that had to drink the wine. When the wine taster dropped dead, instantly killed by a sip, he would take the rest of the wine in the glass and he was considered by the people as having divine powers. He discovered that the poison itself created the defence against the poison. He took it in increasing doses and this is the principle of the vaccine.
When the antiophidic serum is made, which later on can save us from snakebites, increasing doses of poison are injected into a horse, until it can cope with a dose that would kill the horse if it were the first time dose. Blood is taken from this horse, the serum (the white part) is separated and the red part (from the globules) is discarded. The white part is the antiophidic serum. But the one who discovered all this was King Mithridates, 2000 years BC.
