Leech Therapy

Leech Therapy

Today, when it comes to alternative medicine methods, leech therapy is one of them. The effect of this treatment is based on three main pillars. The leech is a creature that sucks blood in the tail and head section, capable of sucking eight times as much blood as its weight. In its secretions, there are various enzymes that prevent blood clotting, balance blood pressure, dissolve the clot, support the immune system, have painkilling, antibacterial and muscle relaxant effects. Although it varies from individual to individual, leech treatment is mostly applied between 5-7 sessions. The number of leeches preferred in accordance with the anatomical structure of the problematic area also varies.

What is Leech Therapy?

About leech therapy it is possible to say:

  • The first benefit of this treatment is the biological effect of the blood process on the body due to the fact that the living being treats by sucking blood. In this way, the body’s production of new blood is triggered and the production of fresh blood cells and more oxygen are transported. This, in turn, promotes healthy tissues.
  • In leech treatment, leeches are placed at acupuncture points. This promotes reflex stimulation.
  • The leech presents important enzymes in its own secretion that it has given to the body during the blood absorption process. According to modern science, this epidemic contains a large number of bioactive components. These components leave positive effects on your body. These components include blood thinning component, vasodilator components, pain relief components, muscle relaxant components. They can even effectively treat damaged nerve cells.

For Which Diseases Is Leech Treatment Applied?

When it comes to leech treatment, one of the most important issues is which diseases this treatment is good for. Leech therapy is widely preferred for the following diseases:

  • Hemorrhoids (hemorrhoids)
  • Eye diseases,
  • Impotence
  • Knee pain,
  • Waist and neck hernia,
  • Depression and panic attacks,
  • Dizziness and tinnitus,
  • Vascular occlusion,
  • Diabetic wounds,
  • Varicose vein treatment,
  • Migraine and other headaches,
  • Skin diseases such as acne, eczema and psoriasis,
  • Anti-aging effect and skin rejuvenation,

The leeches preferred in the treatment are specific to the individual. The use of the same leech on different individuals is out of the question. Applying the leech to the wrong area can cause excessive bleeding, vessel, nerve and lymph tissue damage in the person. Therefore, leech treatment must be carried out by a professional. Otherwise, the emergence of various infectious diseases may also occur.

In addition, this treatment method is not recommended for people who use high-dose blood thinners, have blood clotting problems, hemophilia, anemia, pregnant and breastfeeding.

Since there is contact with blood in the treatment of leeches, the most important issue is, of course, hygiene. Both the environment and the hygiene of the preferred materials and the hygiene of leeches are the most important points. When performing the treatment of the hernia of the individual, it is necessary not to infect him with the viruses of various diseases. If these issues are taken into consideration, leech treatment will show its effect.
