Hijama or Wet Cupping therapy is one of the oldest ancient natural therapies known for mankind. During last decade and with modern science of hijamatolgy which is established lately and pioneered by many hijamatologists we were able to understand many underlying mechanisms of this ancient art.
Heavy metal chelation is hot topic in functional medicine and in many integrative and alternative medicine paradigms. Some synthetic agents like EDTA and DMSA bring unwanted serious side effects. Also using natural heavy metal chelating agents in wrong way or with people who have blockage in their detoxification channels causing heavy metals to be released to circulation and inter-cellular fluid of the tissues and these released heavy metals may go and harm different tissues of the body.
Fortunately there is a new discovery that 5000 years old ancient Hijama (Wet Cupping) Therapy can naturally remove heavy metals with incredibly high amounts and in very safe way by sucking it out from connective tissues through skin. Here is the proof with abstract of the research:
THE EFFECT OF WET CUPPING ON LEVELS OF HEAVY METALS/PROF. DR. ŞENOL DANE
Objective: Wet cupping is a traditional bloodletting method recommended for controlling of a lot of diseases. But its mechanism of action is still unknown. We aimed to investigate the efficacy of wet cupping therapy on the levels of aluminium, lead, mercury and silver.
Methods: 24 healthy volunteers were enrolled for this study. Venous blood samples were drawn and then wet cupping therapy was performed and wet cupping blood samples were taken. All samples were analyzed for measuring the levels of heavy metals by ICP-MS.
Results: We found that all selected heavy metals levels were significantly higher in wet cupping blood than venous blood.
Conclusion: We may conclude that one of the mechanisms of action of wet cupping therapy may be removing heavy metals from the body.
