57- To Patients, 58- Emotion, 59- Behaviour, 60- Optimism.
First: a positive mind. Because a negative mind worsens the suffering. The Immune System declines when a person is negative in relation to their suffering. If a person believes in the cure, the person has every chance of winning over the disease. When a person thinks that the disease has no cure, the persons chances of cure are already very reduced.
Therefore, thinking in a positive way is very important. The mind has enormous power of both cure and destruction. The increasing cases of autoimmune diseases stem from a negative mind. In that case of scleroderma I described at the Cardoso Fontes Hospital, her unconscious mind generated the disease. She had a mentally disabled son, her husband had abandoned her, and left her unable to work. Her mind created the disease so that the whole family would help her, because she was completely destitute, without anything, with a mentally handicapped son and without being able to work and having to care for him. The disease was the solution to her problem. And the auto-hemotherapy was the solution for the disease.
Relationship between emotion, health and disease
Pleasant and good emotions generate health. Bad emotions: fears, fear of violence, hatred, anger and sadness generate disease. Everything that is gratifying to a person, tranquillity, safety and love generate health.
A simple example: a person suffers from psoriasis and is on holiday goes to have a swim in the sea, stays in the sun, is on the beach, the psoriasis disappears altogether; then the person goes back to work, on the following day everything bursts out. Why? If the person really liked their work, the effect would not be that much. But if a person goes to work in a job they dont like having contact with people they dont get on with, the person is not happy there so the psoriasis diverts the persons attention to their body.
The unconscious represents 90% of us . We are only 10% conscious - 10% rational and 90% irrational. And this 90% answers to our wishes in the way it can. It somaticizes diseases to divert attention from the mind.
In reality, many times disease is not the problem, it is the solution. But afterwards the person doesn't accept it, because it brings suffering, then the person wants to cure the disease.
What makes a person change their behaviour?
The most important is not to cry over spilled milk. What has no remedy is already remedied. This philosophy completely changes life. Chinese people consider that disease is guilt. They consider disease as something the person creates. Our negative side, always waiting for the worst, is a factory of diseases, favouring a low level of the immune system. An optimistic view of things - always seeing something good in everything bad that happens, this changes our health very much.
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....
To doctors and future doctors:
Always check, never accept anything like this is a thing of the past, this is "something backward', ' it is out of fashion'. If possible, always add the old to the new. And always check that no harm will come to anyone going to use the treatment.
For example: the cupping-glass, which was in disuse, is now being used again in Japan. It was a great technique used in the 19th century. Pneumonia used to be cured with cupping-glasses. It was not even known why, but they were applied to the lungs and the patients were saved. There were no antibiotics at that time. The pneumococcus was the same as exists today, and it cured the pneumonia. Only later on, Reich, with bioenergetics, explained the reason for the cure. The cupping-glass pulled the blood loaded with energy, the energy potential was raised above that of the microbes. And the energy that was being used by the microbes to reproduce was removed from them. With this the cupping-glass cured the pneumonia. But before Reich published his books in the 1940s, as it worked the doctors were using the cupping-glass without knowing this, without knowing why.
The great lesson is to consider as the first objective of medicine the patient's relief and cure. And after that our satisfaction as a scientist. Whether we want it or not, every physician should want to know the reason why things happen, to satisfy themselves. This is for personal satisfaction. But this is not the physicians commitment. It is the relieving of suffering, this is the only commitment of the physician.
54- Two cases of dysrhythmia and convulsions:
In these cases, two children had a proven dysrhythmia. They were dysrhythmic, their electroencephalogram was abnormal and they had convulsions called epileptic convulsions. The phenobarbital doses being given were so high that the children were no longer having convulsions, but they were practically unable to study or ride a bicycle. They were in no condition to do anything else. I used auto-hemotherapy on these two children to eliminate the excess of barbiturates that were impregnating their brains.
It happens that - following the desimpregnation - the children started to have a normal active life, they could play as much as they wanted and ride a bicycle. They stopped having convulsive crisis, and one of them certainly had no convulsions for over 20 (twenty) years. And the other one, from here in Maua, for about 3 (three) years, more or less.
If later I had ordered an electroencephalogram for these children and compared it to the previous one - before they started using barbiturates this comparison could prove if it really works by correcting the brain waves, restoring them to a level of normality. This is something that in future could be very easily proven. I only thought, as a clinical doctor, about solving the problem that existed. Besides, the other result was unexpected; it was not even the objective of the auto-hemotherapy.
53- On Polymyositis and Dermatomyositis?
Polymyositis, as well as dermatomyositis and rheumatoid arthritis are autoimmune diseases. In every disease with an autoimmune origin i.e., its origin is a corruption of the Immune System that attacks its own body as if it were a foreign body - the use of auto-hemotherapy is valid. Because, firstly, if the application of blood is diffused in several places (better still) it diverts the immunological attack towards the blood, thus reducing the pressure of the attack on the tissues that are being attacked.
I had an experience with a dermatomyositis patient, but I have had no polymyositis cases yet, however it works in the same way. This reason is because it will first cause a diversion. The second reason why it works in autoimmune diseases is because the blood reaches practically each cubic millimetre of our body, except the hair on the head and body. Each square centimetre of the skin and each square centimetre of any organ always contain blood. The bones have less, but there is blood in the bone marrow.
As the blood is everywhere, and as these autoimmune diseases are an inversion of the immune function, when the Immune System is diverted, firstly it reduces the pressure of the aggression.
Secondly - and this is very important, but I cannot prove it, because only laboratory research can do it - because the blood contains the same elements the Immune System is attacking, whichever auto-immune disease it is, it will create a kind of perplexity. It will create a doubt, saying: Why am I attacking myself, if this blood contains the same elements I am attacking? Then the Immune System looks to see what is its own and what it is not. It means that the Immune System was attacking the body as if it were a foreign body, and it will end up recognising these areas as its own, through the elements of the blood, which are identical to those of the attacked areas.
But I cannot prove this. That is just an intelligence exercise to try to explain the reason for the cure of autoimmune diseases, permanent cures. The improvement can be very well explained: the aggression is diverted towards the blood applied into the muscle and naturally it reduces the aggression in those places where the Immune System is attacking. That is one part, but the other, that of the cure, the only explanation is the induction of what is called immune tolerance. This is what happens in allergies, where I have had excellent results. Allergies are an immune intolerance against substances that attack and end up affecting its own organism. Auto-hemotherapy is an excellent therapeutic resource for such cases.
52- Sports and auto-hemotherapy?
When Beckenbauer hung up his boots, he said he attributed his physical performance to auto-hemotherapy. Before each match he had auto-hemotherapy with 10 (ten) ml and he attributed his health to it as well as his physical resistance in the matches. This was his statement when he stopped being a footballer and became the coach for the German national team.
51- And on gout?
The same, because it removes the uric acid. In gout uric acid exceeds 7 (seven) mg per litre, reaching 8 (eight) mg, 10 (ten) mg per litre. Uric acid crystallises within the tissues as needle like crystals and this is the reason why it is tremendously painful. Auto-hemotherapy will cause these crystals to be seen by the Immune System as a foreign body. And it will eliminate them.
50- An on arterial hypertension?
Hypertension is not a clogging; it is an arterial spasm. It is worth having auto-hemotherapy, because the origins of hypertension are more psychosomatic, 95% of the cases of hypertension are called essential hypertension. This is the name medicine gives to it when there is no defined cause. It is known that it is very much related to the emotional side and it is the vast majority.
There is a small number where the hypertension is renal. The substance that produces hypertension is called renin. There are other people with hypertension due to bad blood circulation, because of an excess of VLDL cholesterol, LDL cholesterol and triglycerides. So, there is hypertension because the blood circulates at a slower speed, but in any case auto-hemotherapy works very well, because it will act even in the case of the essential hypertension, and this accounts for more than 90% of cases. It acts on the neurovegetative system, rebalancing the vago-sympathetic system. Hypertension is a dominance of the sympathetic system - that contracts the vessels over the vagal system that expands the vessels. And by rebalancing, auto-hemotherapy helps in the treatment of hypertension.
49- And on cerebral vascular accident (CVA)?
It helps a great deal, provided it is done as soon as possible after the Cerebral Vascular Accident. Because if it is the case of a hemorrhagic accident, the auto-hemotherapy increases the macrophages that devour the fibrin, which is clogging the blood vessels, so re-establishing the circulation much faster.
Recently I had a patient who had a vascular accident, in Visconde de Maua, and I straight away prescribed auto-hemotherapy. The recovery was much faster than it would have been with physiotherapy alone, practically allowing nature to do the phagocytosis of that fibrin. Unclogging with 5% (five percent) of macrophages is much slower than with 22% (twenty-two percent). This is the reason why in these cases I prescribe it every 5 (five) days to prevent a drop.
48- Epidemic outbreaks and auto-hemotherapy?
It would work in this case and it would be of a great value, and an enormous saving. Because people who have already fallen ill with one of these diseases, would have a faster recovery. It would mean less time of illness, because what really cures is the Immune System, it is not the antibiotic that cures. The antibiotic is just bacteriostatic, it only prevents the reproduction of microbes, but what completes the cure of the infection is our own Immune System. So, in this case this would be the action of the auto-hemotherapy.
If people still not infected were under the action of auto-hemotherapy and with their Immune System activated, they wouldnt catch the disease. This would prevent the disease from spreading to a greater number of people. An important detail: when a disease passes from one person to another, the microbe or virus becomes more and more active and more virulent. It is like doing an exercise, that makes it become more violent.
So, it would be of great value if auto-hemotherapy were to become normal practice for everyone. The Ministry of Health took an excellent measure by creating a vaccination programme against flu. As there are no resources available to offer the vaccination to the whole population, they chose a risk group, being the elderly. My wife and I are elderly, we didn't take the flu vaccine because we are protected by auto-hemotherapy. And also because these vaccines are limited to two or three types of virus, usually three, and there are hundreds of flu viruses, I prefer the auto-hemotherapy, because at least I have resistance to all viruses and this is the main reason.
46- How can auto-hemotherapy help a patient with cancer?
As a specific chemotherapy for cancerous cells has not yet been discovered, the chemotherapy also acts on normal cells, so it lowers the immunological level and makes the patient vulnerable to another types of cancer - or to the repetition of the same cancer in another organ, the metastasis. By keeping the Immune System activated, chemotherapy will have its positive side of destroying cancerous cells. And it will have minimised the negative side that destroys the good cells that protect against the recurrence of the same cancer.
In the case of radiotherapy - the radiotherapy also greatly harms the Immune System auto-hemotherapy could repair the damage by reactivating the Immune System, thus avoiding another cancer.
Then it is valid in both cases. Now, it is not to say that it will cure cancer, It will help the means that cure cancer, both radiotherapy and chemotherapy. Or even in the case of an operation, where some cells remained outside the removed tumour and could reach other organs through the lymphatic system. The auto-hemotherapy can prevent the development of those cells, avoiding their multiplication. It is also worthwhile.
Are there any types of cancer incompatible with auto-hemotherapy?
No, none. It should be used in all of them. It can be used in any case. There is no case where auto-hemotherapy is not useful. It may not be enough, but in any case at least, it will prevent the tumour becoming more invasive. It will be helpful.
45- And on recurrent tonsillitises?
It is extremely appropriate, very appropriate. There is a type of tonsillitis where I used auto-hemotherapy with excellent results. This is the tonsillitis caused by beta haemolytic streptococcus. This is a tonsillitis that results in rheumatic fever, causing damage to the heart, with atrophy to the mitral valve, which can only be corrected later by surgery.
This tonsillitis is extremely resistant to antibiotics. And the auto-hemotherapy together with the antibiotic of course, kills the bacteria. I have already cured many cases of rheumatic fever where the origin of the infection was in the throat. It is in the tonsils where the microbes live and protect themselves.
John, for instance, who now is an adult, had a very serious rheumatic fever when he was a child. And it was auto-hemotherapy that cured him. He was left without any lesions.
Another case, in the city of Petropolis, was considered a hopeless case, I had never seen antistreptolysins - ASO is its abbreviation - reaching a count just over a thousand, when the normal is up to 200 (two hundred). It was auto-hemotherapy that managed to save this girl.
43- HPV, 44- Vitiligo:
And on HPV?
Yes, this virus is often found in the cervix. I have no experience because I am not a gynaecologist, but I think it is worth trying, because as the auto-hemotherapy acts against viruses in general - and HPV is a virus -, I think it should also be used. It is the gynaecologists who would have to try it out and then introduce it as a common practice. If it works well - as I believe it should work, since it works on other viruses this case should not be any different.
And on vitiligo?
Patients who are carriers of vitiligo get worse when they are tense. The neurovegetative system is balanced by auto-hemotherapy, and this prevents relapses, which are bad phases, where there is a large increase in the vitiligo patches. But it won't cure vitiligo, it won't have any curative effect.
40- Children age, 41- Geriatrics, 42- Bedsore cicatrization:
From which age can children have auto-hemotherapy?
This depends a lot on the child, because not long ago I had a 5 year old seriously asthmatic child who accepted auto-hemotherapy perfectly well. The child had such a good emotional control that when I explained to the child that would be a benefit, the child was convinced. The one who suffers most when the child is having auto-hemotherapy is the mother.
And auto-hemotherapy in geriatrics?
For me, geriatrics is the area where auto-hemotherapy should be more used. Precisely because it corresponds to the time when the Immune System is in decline.
Does auto-hemotherapy work on bedsore cicatrization?
Yes, by helping the cicatrization of bedsores. Of course, weight cannot be put on top of the sore. Protectors should be used, because bedsores are produced from a continuous friction of the skin on the bed. Besides the friction, there is a lack of oxygenation due to the pressure on the sore, the blood vessels don't supply oxygen to the tissues, so they tend to destroy themselves, but the auto-hemotherapy will help reconstruct them and the cicatrization will be quicker.
36- AHT Beneficial, 37- Intervals, 38- Whithout Breaks, 39- Monocytes:
Is auto-hemotherapy always beneficial?
Yes, always! Because the least that can be said is that there is a curve. The Immune System grows from birth; a child is born with a nearly non-functional Immune System. The child receives the last load from the placenta when it contracts and throws a huge amount of antibodies into the child. For 6 (six) months the child lives protected by these antibodies received from its mother. It would be the case that women, during pregnancy, should have auto-hemotherapy for the child to be born with a potentialized Immune System. At the end of this 6 (six)-month period is when childrens diseases start, precisely because the child's immune reserves finish. The child then starts to build its own Immune System, fighting against any attackers around. In this period the vaccination program starts. The vaccine produces the same effect as the attacks produced by diseases: it is the attenuated disease, but in a way that the body doesn't run the risk of becoming ill, unless it is a defective vaccine - but if it is okay it doesn't cause disease, it produces immunity against the disease.
Then the child starts to grow, its immune system reaches its peak between the ages of 14 (fourteen) and 16 (sixteen) years when it becomes fully developed. It then stays at this level until around the age of 50 (fifty) to 55 (fifty-five) years. Then the Immune System starts to decline, when the thymus - the gland that controls the whole Immune System starts to atrophy. From this stage on, auto-hemotherapy has a huge value because it will slow down this curve of decline. Then it will be indispensable.
There are people who have a less deficient Immune System, others more deficient, depending on their diet. There are people who feed themselves very poorly, with a lack of nutrients that stimulate the Immune System, such as vitamins, mineral salts or proteins, because antibodies are made up of protein. If they have a deficient diet, they will have a deficient Immune System. This is the reason why many people live their lives practically without any disease resisting all the attacks from the environment - and others are always ill. But auto-hemotherapy would help in this case, to counterbalance this deficiency of diet.
Are intervals of less than seven-days harmful?
Not at all, because it is only from the 5th (fifth) to the 7th (seventh) day that all the blood has been practically reabsorbed. And the immune stimulation that happens because the blood represents a foreign body in the organism and causes the self-activation of the Immune System to reject this blood - is declining. If it is done with smaller intervals, there is no such decline it stays always in the range of 20% (twenty percent) to 22% (twenty-two percent) of macrophages, when the normal rate is 5% (five percent) -, there will be no harm. There is no need, as it will only cause unnecessary discomfort to the patient. Only when I need to keep the patient at top level do I do it every 5 (five) days.
Can auto-hemotherapy be done without any breaks?
Yes, absolutely. I only recommend a break exclusively to rest the muscles and veins.
Do dosage variations of 5 (five) ml, 10 (ten) ml and 20 (twenty) ml also make the rate of monocytes increase?
No. The only difference is that, in autoimmune diseases, I sometimes use up to 20 (twenty) ml in the most serious cases. And dividing it in 4 (four) places, applying 5 (five) ml in each arm and 5 (five) ml in each buttock. With this I cause the Immune System to divert from repeatedly attacking its own body instead of fulfilling its function - which is to defend us from attackers -, it is acting against its own body as if it were an enemy.
For rheumatoid arthritis, it affects the joints and even creates deformations. I believe it is thinking about complying with a unconscious request to divert mental suffering to a physical area. And with this - while the person is worried about their bones, their deformed fingers the person forgets the problems which motivated the diversion. Suffering physically is terrible, only in order to alleviate mental stress, but this happens, and I have evidence of it.
35- Scope of auto-hemotherapy:
The scope of the action of auto-hemotherapy is really very wide. As it acts on the Immune System in general, increasing by four times an area of the Immune System called the Reticulo-endothelial System, and increases the macrophages from 5% (five percent) to 22% (twenty-two percent) - and they are responsible for this whole cleansing.
By increasing the number of macrophages, auto-hemotherapy makes the whole system of action of the attackers that occurs in the body be it a virus, bacteria, abnormal pre-cancerous cells all this can be inhibited by the activation of the Immune System. Auto-hemotherapy really has a wide range of applications and I also have found that it works in an area of the nervous system, which is the autonomic nervous system. It organises the vago-sympathetic system and this makes people feel more tranquil.
Tense people tend to be sympathicotonic. This causes vascular contraction and favours hypertension. Auto-hemotherapy keeps blood pressure under control and maintains the right balance between the vagal system which expands the blood vessels - and the sympathetic system, which contracts them. It is another aid, together with other resources. It is an aid in fighting hypertension, which is a disease that strikes billions of people in the world, due to the stress of modern life, of fear and insecurity. Today hypertension is becoming a very serious public health problem. And auto-hemotherapy, at least by balancing the neurovegetative system, is already helping to make the consequences of hypertension less serious.
