From the "Overview" article linked above:Yes, that is my plan. I haven't ordered the books, unfortunately my brain is not working as before so I hardly read anything at the moment, just don't comprehend or don't remember what I've read 5 min before, so I hope she will be satisfied with Gabys article, since she is very thorough and scientific minded.
Right now I don't remember how often you can do it, something about starting with 5 ml and increase to 10 ml, but I will listen to my body. And I think I have the equipment due to trying local anesthetic/sterile water for reducing pain, otherwise she can probably get the right syringes and stuff.
Must read Gabys article and other links again…..
From the "Overview" article linked above:
Intramuscular doses commonly discussed in the literature tend to fall within the 3 to 10 cc range. The safety and utility of a twice-weekly schedule has been demonstrated in the historical literature [*8], which schedule is in concert with Dr. Rosenow's twice-weekly administration of antigen and antibody for chronic diseases such as MS. As advocated by Dr. Rosenow in the case of MS, a responsible family member might be instructed in administering the therapy, insofar as it may have to be continued indefinitely.
It could go either or. I would start with 3 cc and see how it goes. I wouldn't worry too much about it though.In case she does agree to help me out, what should the place where blood was injected look like? Should it have a bruise? Is higher temperature afterwards normal? Is it going to hurt for a couple of hours / days?

Whatever happens, just don't tense your gluteal muscles at the time of the injection. That will not help! Relax them as if you're in your favorite nature spot.Thank you Gaby, fingers crossed she says 'yes' then. I'm not too keen on learning something like things from YouTube, partially because I'm scared of needles and any form of injections as it is.
Ant22, I'ven been donating blood during a 10 year period long time ago plus I've been doing around 30-40 blood tests the last 5 years, and B12 injections, and I can tell you that bruises sometimes happens, even if it is done by professionals, so I wouldn't worry about that. If your nurse is perfoming it with professional and sterilised equipment etc I would say that the chance of getting an infection is pretty slim….my take on it. And I will do it.
Yes, you draw the blood out and inject it back in with same syringe and needle. And of course, you do a good alcohol wipe before each and have a bandage to put on immediately after you finish the draw.Well, since I haven't read the book(s) I don't know if you can use the same needle (size?) and syringe for withdrawing and injecting 3-10 ml of blood.
Does the book say anything about HOW to do it, I mean practical things like needle/syringe sizes, exactly where in the buttocks etc?
How does the blood come in contact with the air? The light I understand….It's not that I'm cheap or lazy to read the books, I just have a really hard time to read things nowadays, even writing this.
I think my nurse friend will help me, but in worst case I might have to do it myself, or with my partners help, that's the reason for asking.
