Why You Should Go for Hijama Therapy

Though primarily discovered to cure body pain only, now this ancient therapy proved beneficial for curing several health conditions. Scientific researchers have shown that it works like magic on migraines and the back pain. The therapy is effective in healing many clinical manifestations of external pathogens, which harbors at the level of the skin. The Hijama releases toxins; de acidifies tissues, and boosts blood circulation. It releases harmful chemicals from the body, which reduce stress and depression.

This procedure involves creating negligible pressure to the internal organ. It can be applied at anywhere in the body. However, it is mostly performed at the site of pain, though the traditional method tells about using it only six optimal points of the body.

Diseases that can be cured by the Hijama Therapy are as follows:-

1. Back pain
2. Arthritic Pain
3. Hair Loss
4. Asthma
5. Skin problem
6. Fertility problem
7. Stomach problems
8. Migraines
9. Headache
10. Period Pain
11. Injuries
12. Cellulite
13. Fatigue
14. Anemia
15. Depression
16. Emotional problems
17. Atrophy
18. Sciatica
19. Common cold and Flu
20. Weight loss and many more

As per the Islamic prophet, Hijama is the best remedy. Latest Science proved that this therapy strengthen the immune system. Sufficient flow of nutrition to the affected tissues, stimulation of blood and lymph flow is the basis of curing so many health problems. Hijama also activates the function of the organs; it can be used for treating liver and kidney disorders as well.

The therapy is based on cupping. At ancient era, horns were used as cups, but now the metal, glass or plastic cups are used. Some therapists, even use machines, instead of the cups.

However, this therapeutic procedure warns against over cupping. Traditionally cupping was used only at six optimal points of the body, to clean the entire cardiovascular system.

The traditional Hijama Method is as follows:-

The traditional method confers that pain occurs in the body due to stagnation of blood and Qi or the body energy. The location of cupping is shaved at first, to make certain the tight seal of the cup with the skin. A small piece of paper or cotton is burned inside the vessel, to make it sterile. This also makes the vessel stick to the skin, which is necessary to accomplish this process.

The modern therapeutic use two types of cupping, the dry cupping and the wet cupping.

1. As per the dry cupping, only the cups are placed with suction. An Incision is not made so the blood is not removed from the skin.

2. The wet cupping is the procedure that says about creating incisions, after placing of the suction cup. It lets out the blood and pus from the body.

Cups that are used for Hijama to create a pulling power in the skin. It causes pain reduction and mobilizes the immune system, which makes it strong and releases energy.

Glandular Therapy

Glandular therapy is based upon the use of animal glandular and organ substances to bolster the function of the human body’s corresponding organs and glands. Modern medicine replaces the thyroid gland with thyroid hormone, the adrenal gland with cortisone, the pancreas gland with insulin, and the ovaries with estrogen and progesterone. Until recently, however, the use of whole glandular extracts to revitalize glandular function has been largely relegated to “medicine of the past”. “Live cell therapy” (in which animal glands could be either surgically implanted, or chopped and dissolved in a saline solution and injected into a patient) was first suggested in 1912. By the1940s, oral glandular extracts were in worldwide clinical use, and a considerable amount of research was in progress to support their use. In practice, they proved to be potent promoters of health.

Ignorance and Arrogance

With the development of antibiotics and the advent of “modern” medicine, researchers have since concentrated on developing pharmaceutical drugs that are more profitable to the drug companies. It seems that man, in his ignorance and arrogance (and greed), has decided that science can ascertain all aspects of nutritional physiology and extract the beneficial “active ingredient” from glandular substances. We know from the side effects of our synthetic treatments that this is simply not true. In fact, the real power behind glandular therapy is far beyond the grasp of man’s wisdom. Not only are glandular extracts rich in gland specific nutrients, but their nucleotides impart critical information to their new host that is not available any other way!

Benefits of Glandular Therapy

Glands produce messenger proteins (hormones) that regulate bodily functions such as metabolism, immunity, growth and sexual development. The whole body suffers when they malfunction. Glandular and organ extracts are indicated when a patient’s endocrine system is under producing a specific hormone or when an organ is weakened or diseased, such as is often the case with cancer patients or individuals with suppressed immunity or thyroid insufficiency. Glandular tissues are rich in nutrients, including vitamins, minerals, amino acids, fatty acids, polypeptides, enzymes, and many other substances. Because it is “tissue specific”, glandular therapy can supply essential nutritional needs in a highly efficient manner. Glandulars can and should be an important component of a complete nutritional program.

Most Commonly Used Glandulars

Glandular tissue concentrates are once again being increasingly embraced by practitioners who are impressed with their lack of side effects and track record of success. They can be used to support any gland, organ, or tissue of the human body. Examples include:

Thyroid

The thyroid gland regulates metabolism by releasing iodine containing hormones that control energy production in all the body’s cells. Administration of thyroid extract helps cells eliminate cellular waste and speeds up their restorative functions. A healthy thyroid is an important prerequisite to a healthy immune system, good weight management, maintaining cellular energy levels and cardiovascular health. Thyroid insufficiency is epidemic in America, especially among women. It is very often left untreated because doctors typically depend solely on blood tests for diagnosis. Unfortunately, thyroid blood panels alone are totally unreliable as a diagnostic tool because thyroid hormone output (i.e.- blood level) is only half the equation. Uptake at the cellular level may be impaired, leaving a person with normal blood tests and profound hypothyroid symptoms. To learn more about Hypothyroidism, Google the article entitled, Hypothyroidism Type II: A ModernEpidemic

Thymus

The thymus is known as the master gland of immunity because it is largely responsible for the production and maturation (training) of immune cells and for regulating immune function. Thymic hormones help “program” immune cells to recognize tissues as either self or invader. Recognizing the enemy is the first and likely most important step in the immune response. Orally administered calf thymus extracts have been found to be quite effective in restoring and enhancing immune function (1), with studies demonstrating broad-spectrum immune system enhancement. Thymic factors are said to be immune modulators. Thymic extracts have been shown to normalize the ratio of T-helper cells to suppressor cells whether the ratio is low as in AIDS, chronic infections and cancer, or high as found with allergies and autoimmune diseases like psoriasis and rheumatoid arthritis. (2,3) In other words, thymic factors appear to influence the immune response up or down as needed!

Obviously, there is no more foundational a way to support our health than by supporting the thymus gland. Thymus extracts may provide a solution to chronic viral infections and low immune function. Double blind studies with groups of children with a history of recurrent respiratory tract infections showed that orally administered thymus extracts were able to effectively eliminate infection. The treatment, over the course of a year, also significantly reduced the number of respiratory infections and significantly improved numerous immune parameters. (4)

Spleen Pharmaceutical grade bovine spleen extracts are useful in the treatment of infectious conditions and as an immune-enhancing agent in cancer. Their benefits are attributed to small-molecular-weight proteins that stimulate macrophages in the liver, spleen, and lymph nodes. The primary use of spleen extracts is after a splenectomy, or removal of the spleen. The removal of the spleen is associated with an increased risk for infection, particularly bacterial infection. Spleen extracts can be quite helpful in such cases. Spleen extracts are also useful in the treatment of low white blood cell counts and bacterial infections and as an adjunct to cancer therapy.

Adrenals

The adrenal glands are responsible for a wide variety of body functions, including stress management, water/electrolyte balance, inflammation regulation, and blood sugar control. Adrenal tissue concentrates may help to support adrenal function and alleviate many of the health problems associated with overworked adrenal glands.

Liver

The liver is a vital organ that must process every nutrient, toxin, drug, and any other substance entering the body through the intestines, lungs or skin. In addition to its detoxification duties, the liver helps regulate blood sugar and plays a major role in the metabolism of hormones, carbohydrates, proteins and fats. The liver aids digestion, stores vitamins, and secretes bile which is stored in the gallbladder and used to digest fats. Maintaining the health of this essential organ is the key to your overall quality of life. Liver support formulas containing herbs and liver extract provide organ specific nutrients to promote detoxification pathways and encourage regeneration of liver tissue.

Pituitary

The pituitary gland is small and bean-shaped, located below the brain in the skull base very near the hypothalamus. Weighing less than one gram, the pituitary gland is often called the “Master Endocrine Gland” since it controls the secretion of hormones by other endocrine glands.

Health of the Cell is Key

For a tissue cell to repair or replace itself, it must have the raw materials necessary. Glandular therapy provides the raw materials to failing or weakened organs, glands, and tissues so that they can start the process of regeneration. It all boils down to this: Happy cells make happy glands and organs, and happy glands and organs make happy people!

The Ancient Art of Acupuncture Therapy

Acupuncture, is a natural healing process that possibly originated in China many thousands of years ago, and has since been adopted by many cultures as an effective method of ridding the body of many ailments. The origin of acupuncture is uncertain, even though archeologists have discovered stone acupuncture needles in Mongolia that date back more than 5,000 years.

Stone acupuncture needles were called Bian Stones and were refined from a particular type of stone that is rich in calcium, phosphorus and iron, as well as several other minerals. There is evidence that bronze needles were also used from about 1,000 B.C., however stone needles were mostly used until the advent of gold and silver needles in the fourth or early fifth century B.C..

Modern acupuncture needles are made from stainless steel and are extremely fine, ranging from 0.12 millimeter in diameter. Disposable stainless steel filiform needles are mostly used these days although gold or silver needles are still available. The Chinese had nine different types of needles that they used to treat a variety of complaints and modern practitioners still use several different types of needles.

During an acupuncture therapy session, needles are inserted into specific acupoints of the body, which are situated over meridians within the body that pass through the vital organs on their journey to the body’s extremities. There are twelve major meridians and several minor meridians that channel energy throughout the body, keeping it in balance. When the body suffers from ailments, aches or pains then it’s balance can be restored by inserting needles into the acupuncture points that relate to the affected area of the body. This process effectively frees the meridian channels of any obstruction allowing energy to circulate freely, keeping the body in balance.

The Chinese believe the body to be controlled by it’s organs through meridians or channels in our body that allow energy to circulate freely, thus keeping the body in balance and healthy. This energy is known as Qi and when a channel becomes blocked Qi cannot flow freely, which causes pain or a physical ailment. A trained acupuncturist can determine the meridian that is blocked and where to insert the needles that will relieve the channel blockage and cause Qi to flow freely.

A physical ailment is indicated by pain, and pain is caused by a blockage in a meridian channel that restricts the flow of energy to parts of the body. Acupuncture is seen as an effective means to quickly unblock the meridian and get energy flowing again. This process allows the affected area of the body to heal and stop the pain.

Acupuncture is extremely effective in the fast relief of lower back pain, sciatica and arthritis as well as most other common ailments. Acupuncture is a natural remedy that is quite often used in conjunction with natural herbal medicines.

 

Finding Fertile Ground With an Ancient Therapy

Many people encounter difficulty in conceiving a child as infertility affects up to 10-15% of couples, and the prevalence increases with age. The World Health Organization defines infertility as the inability to conceive a child after two years of regular sexual intercourse without contraception. In the U.S., fertility evaluation and treatment is generally considered when couples fail to conceive after 12 months of trying.

There are many causes of infertility in women. Causes due to problems in the endocrine system include diabetes, hypothyroidism, and adrenal insufficiency. Sexually transmitted diseases such as Chlamydia can cause infertility by damaging the fallopian tubes. Other common causes of infertility include polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS) and endometriosis. Decreased sperm count and/or motility are common causes of infertility in men. No definitive etiology is found in 15-20% of cases of infertility, which is often referred to as “unexplained infertility”. Any couple who is dealing with infertility ought to seek medical attention to determine the etiology and receive the appropriate care.

Acupuncture is a therapy that involves the placement of very fine needles in specific points on the body. It originated in China and has been practiced for over 2,000 years. According to Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM), life force energy, or “Qi”, flows through meridians in our bodies and disease occurs when there is an imbalance in this system. Acupuncture and other therapies, including herbal remedies, seek to restore balance when disease occurs. Acupuncture has likely been used to treat infertility as long as it has been practiced, and its first recorded use for this purpose was over 1,000 years ago. Several million Americans have had acupuncture, many of whom have sought this treatment for infertility.

Acupuncture has been researched extensively, and its use for infertility is well documented in the medical literature. Studies have shown that the following processes occur as the result of acupuncture: improved blood flow to the uterus and ovaries, augmentation of the uterine lining, improved follicle formation and ovulation, better regulation of the hormones necessary for fertilization, improved quality and quantity of sperm cells in men, and the alleviation of stress which is often a problem in couples who are having difficulty conceiving.

In one study published in Fertility and Sterility in April 2002, 160 patients undergoing in vitro fertilization (IVF) were divided into two groups. Eighty patients received acupuncture before and after fertilized embryos were transferred to their uterus. The other group of 80 patients underwent embryo transfer and did not receive acupuncture. The group that received acupuncture had a significantly higher rate of pregnancy, as 34 women (42.5%) in the acupuncture group became pregnant while 21 women (26%) in the group that did not receive acupuncture became pregnant.

Although the medical literature indicates that women undergoing IVF can benefit from acupuncture, women who decide not to go through IVF can still benefit from acupuncture, particularly women with unexplained infertility. Although their infertility may be “unexplained” by conventional Western Medicine, these patients often have well-defined diagnoses according to TCM. Stagnant Liver Qi is a common cause of infertility in TCM. In addition to infertility, these patients often exhibit symptoms of depression. Deficient Kidney Qi is another common TCM diagnosis seen in infertility patients. Patients with deficient Kidney Qi are often overstressed, overworked, and sleep-deprived (epidemic in the U.S.). Energetic disturbances such as these can adversely affect the ability to get pregnant. Restoring balance in these patients with the use of acupuncture and other stress reduction techniques can help create a healthy milieu in which a pregnancy can successfully initiate and develop.

The risks of acupuncture are minimal and include local bleeding and infection. It is not recommended to undergo acupuncture after pregnancy has started, as stimulating some acupuncture points can result in uterine contractions which can lead to miscarriage. The cost of acupuncture is generally far less than other fertility treatments. The needles are very fine, so even needle averse patients tolerate the procedure well.
