    Aeroionotherapy can be employed in two ways: by inhalation and/or local applications. Different types of generators are used for individual and group treatments. With high densities of aeroions, the inhalation therapy requires only short seances. Low concentrations of aeroions call for protracted inhalation periods. Well ventilated and meticulously clean rooms are a pre-requisite. Metering of ion densities must be undertaken before each procedure. Proper dosages are still not fully established. While some functional improvements can be observed after the very first treatment, occasionally paradoxal reactions occur after a prolonged exposure to aeroions in very high concentrations. With rare exceptions. the negative polarity is being predominantly employed. Depending on the condition of the patient, 10 or more daily treatments may be required. In patients receiving simultaneously other forms of therapy as mineralor sea water baths, physical therapy, etc., aeroionotherapy is limited to every other day. In prolonged treatments a progressive increase of the dosage may be necessary.
