Oxidative Medicine Terms
Following are some Oxidative Medicine Terms
Autohemotherapy is the process of withdrawing blood from the body, mixing it with ozone or an herbal or homeopathic remedy and re-injecting the same blood back into a vein or through the skin or muscle. The aim of this therapy is to enhance the immune system’s ability to fight disease.
Major Autohemotherapy (MAHT) is the process of removing 50-300ccs of blood from the body to be put into a sterile container with ozone added. The container is then shaken to provide contact between the ozone and blood, which is follow by reinfusion into the body.
Minor Autohemotherapy (mAHT) is the process of removing a small amount of blood into a syringe that has been pre-filled with a small amount of ozone. The blood and ozone are mixed in the syringe and then injected into a muscle of the body.
Direct Intravenous Ozone
Direct Intravenous Ozone (DIV) is the slow injection of 10-30ccs of ozone gas into the vein. This process can cause patients to cough and is not recommended by a number of ozone organizations.
Gamma is a unit of measurement for ozone concentration. One gamma = 1ug/ml = 1mg/L. The concentration is determined by the ozone generator and oxygen settings.
Insufflation is the act of inserting an ozone and oxygen mixture into a body cavity – rectal, vaginal, sinus, or ears.
Limb bagging is used to reduce wound healing time by wrapping a bag around the wound area and filling it with ozone. The ozone reacts with the moisture from the wound and speeds up the healing process.
Ozone cupping is a funnel technique that introduces ozone to a specific restricted area of the body surface at a low oxygen flow rate.
Ozonated Water or Saline
Ozonated water or saline can be used for female uterine infection, lavage during surgery, or sterilization of materials. In Russia, using an IV ozonated saline drip is a common practice.
Ozone saunas combine ozone with steam to act directly as a catalyst to help the body detox.
Prolozone is an ozone therapy pioneered and taught by Frank Shallenberger, MD. It uses a combination of medications, minerals, vitamins, homeopathics, and ozone injected into joints and soft tissue.
Plug Cleaning is the process of clearing the skin from the lumen of the needle prior to insertion into the joint.
UBI or UVBI (Ultraviolet Blood Irradiation)
UBI or UVBI (Ultraviolet Blood Irradiation) blood is withdrawn from the patient’s arm using a small needle and 60cc syringe. The blood is added to saline and re-infused into the patient after it passes by the UV light through a quartz tube or cuvette, which is a specially designed light device. The body then works with a new supercharged immune response, greater oxygenation and a balancing of the system. If infection is present, an autologous vaccine response is created. Ozone may be added to this process.
UVO3 is UBI therapy combined with ozone MAHT.
