You probably would have heard about Cupping therapy, now studies have shown that it is used as an alternative treatment for eczema. However, this form of treatment is being practiced in Asia, US, UK, Middle East and in China today. A few of my Singaporean subscribers to my newsletter reported that their Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) practitioners in fact recommended this form of treatment to them. This therapy is a great alternate to modern medicine where you don't have any treatment for eczema.

Just like acupuncture, cupping therapy is an ancient form of Chinese healing dating back many years ago. It is the practice of using plastic or glass cups with suction balls at the end placed against your skin. A vacuum is created, causing local congestion and opening up the meridians in your body. Meridians, according to TCM, are channels from which energy enters and flows. Diseases and illnesses happen when the meridian channels are blocked. Opening up the channels can help speed recovery and bring about healing.

Cupping therapy apparently has many beneficial for the skin. It activates your skin tissues and causes them to release toxins. This detoxification therapy can also improve the condition of your varicose veins as it clears blood clotting in the arteries, capillaries, and veins. Very importantly, cupping therapy supposedly stimulates your lymphatic system - the very system that produces antibodies to help fight off diseases.

Cupping therapy is an alternative treatment for eczema. The therapy can help clear your skin of pathogens being the same ones that trigger an eczema flare-up. Cupping therapy also improves blood circulation and enhances its purification. Since some theories say that certain types of eczema are caused by blood circulatory problems, cupping therapy may just be the solution that you are looking for.

During the therapy process, the plastic or glass cups are placed on certain points of your body. The points for eczema are specifically located near your navel, just below the kneecap, at the upper tip of the spinal cord, and right above the ankle. When the plastic or glass cups used in therapy are applied in these areas, you would feel calm and relaxed. In fact, this is what you would expect to experience from the cupping therapy. You may find yourself falling asleep during the session and waking up to feeling more refreshed and energized.

Cupping therapy, as an alternative eczema treatment, is worth a try since there is no cure by conventional medicine for eczema. In fact, what most doctors can do for you right now are different ways to reduce the discomfort that you feel with an itchy and inflamed condition. Other than that, there are no guarantees that total healing would happen. You would find that you get eczema outbreaks time and time again. Hence, it would appear that combining the good effects of alternative remedies with modern science might just be the best route to take if you want to cure yourself from eczema.

To find out more about this alternative treatment for eczema, you would need to seek out a doctor from Heal Health Care. You can find cupping therapy practiced in Hyderabad, India. Cupping is also said to be an alternative means to massaging your body while allowing it to heal in the process. Hence, there may just be a few massage spas that may offer this form of treatment.

Cupping therapy is the application of heated cups over an area of the body creating a slight suction on the areas. According to Chinese medicine, cupping therapy rids the body of toxins encouraging better blood flow. The treatment relaxes you and creates a better energy flow, thus promoting a restful sleep. Although considered “new” in the Valley, this therapy has been used for hundreds of years.

“Cupping therapy is also popular with our clients who have trouble sleeping,” added Damaceno. According to Damaceno, first-time cupping therapy clients are immediately hooked, and book several treatments in a month.

Below is the research carried out by Dr. David Parker ND on the effects and benefits of the ancient art of Hijama (Cupping) therapy.  David Parker works in the field of clinical nutrition, naturopathy and the research of the effectiveness of both modern and ancient healing techniques. Microscopic assessment of blood is one means of determining the nutritional status as well as the toxic elements present in a person’s blood.

As a naturopath, nutritionist and healer I was intrigued to explore the scientific reasons why the ancient art of cupping or Hijama therapy was so effective in treating a whole host of ailments and illnesses.

The wet cupping I found particularly fascinating and was curious to know more about the blood, which was being extracted via the cup from various areas of the body. From this viewpoint I started analyzing the blood under dark field and light field microscopy. This proved very insightful and proved to me something I had suspected. The dry layered blood sample viewed under light field microscopy consistently showed high concentrations of toxic metals and chemicals, as well as showing evidence of bacterial and parasitic activity. The appearance of the live blood under the dark field microscope showed that there were high concentrations of acids and inflammatory proteins often referred to as fibrin. These phenomena were more frequently present when the blood was removed from an area where the patient was experiencing pain and inflammation. I conclude from this that the area of pain appears to act like a magnet for acids, toxins and pathogens. It is therefore very logical to assume that removal of these from the local area will bring about symptomatic relief, while encouraging fresh circulating blood to deliver healing nutrients and oxygen to the affected tissue, thus providing healing and resolution. Together with dietary change, cleansing and detoxification therapy, along with education regarding the avoidance of toxins within the patient’s environment, I see Hijama wet cupping as a very effective adjunctive therapy on the path to wellness.

The ideal live blood picture under dark field microscopy.

Observe the red cells sitting separately in their own space therefore having the freedom to travel around the body network of capillaries, which in some cases are one red cell in diameter. Observe the free-floating white blood cells known as neutrophils, again having the freedom to patrol around the body searching out toxins and pathogens.

(The thicker and denser the grey band, the more metals there are in the blood).

Degenerative processes evidenced under light field microscopy.
(The white lakes seen here indicate that tissues associated with the vascular system have become inflamed and are harboring atherosclerotic plaques, toxic metals and cholesterol).

How the dry layered blood sample should look under light field microscopy.
(Observe the absence of any white lakes, the clean finely cut edge showing no toxic metals and the black lines all joining together like a matrix).

A before and after assessment is usually useful in determining the changes occurring as a result of the therapy being applied.
