Hijama (wet cupping therapy) is an excellent alternative therapy for the treatment of Rheumatoid arthritis. Rheumatoid arthritis is a different disease to osteoarthritis and as a result the way in which Hijama works is different and even more effective.
Rheumatoid arthritis is an auto-immune disease of the joints. For reasons which are still being understood the body's cells attack the joints of the body and result in inflammation. To you, this will mean pain, stiffness, swelling and even deformity of your joints. On top of this tiredness, feeling weak or even feverish can be part of the disease.
The limitations of medicine for treating rheumatoid arthritis are no secret. 'Disease modifying anti-rheumatic drugs' are used by specialists. The clue is in the name - they modify the disease - but at a cost. Every single drug used for treating rheumatoid arthritis has significant side effects which can be more difficult to cope with than the disease itself.
Hijama works by cleansing the blood and boosting the immune system without any side effects. For painful joints we carry out cupping directly on all of the joints that are affected and this will reduce swelling, relieve pain and soothe any inflammation directly. Cupping over other specific points helps the actual disease process itself and helps with the symptoms for the long-term.
We consistently see our patients get great results for the treatment of rheumatoid arthritis. The nature of the disease itself means that while one treatment will give you immediate relief you will require a few sessions to gain the maximum benefit. For a typical treatment plan a patient will require three full sessions in three months. During these three months it is likely that you would be able to reduce some of your medications also. After getting your symptoms fully controlled we recommend a short 'top-up' session two or three times a year.
In depth research of the impact of Hijama on Rheumatoid Arthritis does exist and an excellent review article can be found here. This research showed that Hijama resulted in significant clinical improvement with patients suffering with rheumatoid arthritis. The research also looked at the results of blood tests and the results support our positive day to day findings and feeback.
