Blood Optimisation Treatment

Blood optimization involves providing regular blood donations (max. five times per year) to help improve the health of vital organs such as your heart and red blood cells.

Phlebotomy therapy for blood optimization

Phlebotomy blood optimization consists of a blood donation routine (with a maximum of 5 times a year) to improve the health and vitality of the organs. The effects are achieved because of the renewal of blood cells.

Donating blood has multiple benefits. It reduces the oncological risk, limits the possibility of developing cardiac pathologies, and prevents hemochromatosis.

The risk of having a heart attack is reduced by up to a third with regular phlebotomy since there is more regeneration of blood cells, and the oxidation of cholesterol is slowed down.

Reduction of heart disease

Donating blood can lower your risk of heart disease by 33% and heart attack risk by 88%.

Body weight management

Donating blood regularly can help with body weight management. Each transfusion uses stored energy and is estimated to burn up to 650 calories.

Prevention of liver damage

Phlebotomy removes excess circulating iron from the blood and prevents its deposit in the liver or pancreas. This is the mechanism of hemochromatosis, a chronic pathology that is treated precisely with phlebotomies. An iron-saturated liver leads to cirrhosis and liver failure.

Cholesterol reduction

The renewal of blood cells prevents part of the cholesterol from being oxidized. Oxidized cholesterol is the one that is deposited in the form of plaques in the arteries, causing clots. This also explains why phlebotomies reduce the risk of heart attacks.

Decreased risk of cancer

Removing excess iron with regular blood donations reduces the risk of cancer. This includes cancer of the liver, lungs, intestines, and throat. Iron in excess favors the accumulation of free radicals in the body. These reactive substances accelerate aging and promote the appearance of mutations.
