Aerohydro-Ionization

 

a method of artificially reproducing the aggregate of the electrical, meteorological, and acoustic phenomena which are encountered under natural conditions in the atomization of water (at waterfalls, mountain rivers, or ocean surf), joined together by the general concept of the “balloelectric effect.” All of the elements that constitute this effect are biologically active and affect oxidation-reduction processes, the basic processes of metabolism, hemodynamics, vascular tone, and the functional condition of the nervous system in man. At a certain dosage the balloelectric effect stimulates the organism’s immunobiological reactions. Aerohydro-ionotherapy is utilized in treating hypertension, atherosclerosis (in its early stages), and rheumatism (in its inactive phase). A special apparatus known as the aerohydro-ionizer has been created to reproduce, partially or completely, the balloelectric effect in aerohydro-ionization.
