Is it dangerous to use leeches?
You can safely undergo hirudotherapy - that's what the treatment with medical leeches is called. The longer doctors work with hirudotherapy, the more amazed they are at its possibilities.
First, leech therapy for varicose veins and thrombophlebitis gives an excellent effect, because during the bite, hirudin - a special substance that thins the blood - is introduced into the body.
Secondly, about 70 biologically active substances also enter in parallel, which help with almost all diseases and improve the metabolism. Hirudotherapy is contraindicated only for those who suffer from anemia and hemophilia. The leeches are placed according to a certain scheme on the biologically active points. Usually four leeches are used per procedure.
We recommend that you do ten healing sessions. For example, with hypertensives, leeches are placed on the back of the head and for a short time behind the ears and on the temples. Since after placing the leeches from the bite site tears blood for about a day, a bandage is made.
Hirudotherapy does not cause allergies, but the only unpleasant side effect that can occur is itching. It intensifies especially after the fourth procedure and mainly at night, but for the sake of he alth it can be tolerated.
