In photobiological autohaemotherapy, 50 ml is first of all drawn from your arm vein and made incoagulous. After this, the blood is foamed and enriched with oxygen using special equipment. In this state, the blood is then exposed to an ultraviolet light source with a certain wave spectrum and is then retransfused into the arm vein. The treatment lasts for around 30 minutes. The HOT is the most intensive kind of UV light treatment method for blood. In blood, so called activated oxygen molecules arise which have a very strong biological effect and a number of functions in the body besides influencing the metabolic processes in a positive way. The treatment leads to improvement of oxygen intake in cells as well as the energy balance, blood circulation and metabolic disorders. Due to the positive follow-up effects, HOT remains effective on a long term basis.
Since harmful substances are excreted from the body through HOT, fatigue may be experienced at the early stages of the therapy. Physical exertion should be avoided in course of the treatment.
