Bloodletting Therapy

Bloodletting Therapy(Wet Cupping)

Bloodletting is one of the oldest medical practices, used for centuries to cure illness and restore health. Dating back several thousand years, it was a common treatment for ailments like migraines and fever. In this therapy, practitioners withdraw blood from the patient’s body in a controlled manner to alleviate diseases. In ancient times, leeches were often used to extract blood. Surprisingly, even blood loss from wounds was sometimes treated by withdrawing more blood. This therapy, believed to be effective for a wide range of diseases from acne to asthma, varies in methods depending on the illness.

To accelerate blood flow, sharpened sticks, shark’s teeth, knives, and arrow points were historically used, targeting veins in the neck or forearms, or the artery in the forehead. While this may seem radical, when performed clinically, bloodletting can be a beneficial treatment for various illnesses, including cardiac diseases. Understanding how bloodletting works helps in appreciating its numerous benefits.
