Hirudotherapy – treatment with leeches, an ancient natural remedy for many ailments! Currently, the mechanisms of action of leeches on the human body have been studied in detail.
The effectiveness of the method is associated not only with the ability of leeches to cause capillary bleeding, thereby reducing the venous plethora of the affected area, but also with their ability to restore microcirculation. Numerous scientific studies have shown that leeches are a whole factory of biologically active substances and enzymes, which, when released into human blood, cause anti-inflammatory, analgesic, anti-edematous effects, reduce the likelihood of blood clots, and improve microcirculation. Hirudin is the most studied component of leech secretion.
Indications for hirudotherapy
The list of diseases for which hirudotherapy is indicated is quite large. Along with general therapeutic diseases (IHD, hypertension, varicose veins, thrombophlebitis, hemorrhoids), leeches cure men suffering from urological prostatitis. And in solving issues of infertility, endometriosis, hirudotherapy has no equal.
Hirudotherapy is indicated for ALL diseases associated with impaired blood and lymph microcirculation in body tissues. These factors lead to a slowdown in blood circulation, the production and intensive deposition at the cellular level of substances harmful to the body (slagging of the body). This is what causes many diseases.
_Hirudotherapy sessions can even strengthen the immune system.The bite of a leech causes the lymphatic system to produce more lymphocytes – killer cells. And those make their way into the most secluded corners of the body and destroy the disease.
It is important to note that leeches are used once, like a syringe, and destroyed after use. Reuse of leeches is NOT allowed. It is also important to note that hirudotherapy is a MEDICAL method and only a specially trained doctor should use it. Self-medication is unacceptable!
