What is MAH?
Major Autohemotherapy (MAH) is form of therapy in which blood is drawn from an IV site, oxygenated and ozonated, then reintroduced back into the body.
The use of ozone in medicine was started in the United States, but much of the advancement in the field happened in Germany. After much experimentation they came up with the present-day form.
What Does Ozone Do?
(An IV is placed in your vein, then we remove some blood, place it in an IV bag, often mixing it with some normal saline. To prevent clotting we will put in a blood thinner. We then introduce a mix of oxygen and ozone, allowing it to oxygenate the blood. Very often blood that is very dark coming out of the body becomes a much brighter red color (due to the oxygen). Next, we run the blood back into the body through the IV site. Oftentimes, on the way back we will run it through ultraviolet light (see UBI).
