    Scientific Basis of Hijama

    Scientific Basis Of Hijama

    Immunological effects and hormonal adjustments​

    They can be explained by the activation of the immune system theory, through the regulation of immunoglobulins and haemoglobin. Cupping irritates the immune system by creating an artificial local inflammation, activates the complement system and increases the level of immune products such as interferon and tumour necrotizing factor. Cupping effect on the thymus increases the flow of lymph in the lymphatic system.16 Overall, activation of the immune system by cupping might explain its various effects including therapeutic outcomes in patients with autoimmune diseases.

    Releasing of toxins and removal of wastes and heavy metals

    The aforementioned effects might be explained by the Blood Detoxification Theory which addresses the removal of toxic substances from the affected area where the cups are applied. According to the theory, cupping therapy:

    • Decreases levels of uric acid, HDL, LDL
    • Adjust the molecular structure of haemoglobin
    • Excretion of old red blood cells
    • Removes heavy metals such as aluminium, mercury, silver and lead
    • Promotes the release of toxins and wastes, improves the local nutrition state, boost metabolism, and eliminate pathogenic factors.

    Muscle relaxation, changes in local tissue structures and an increase in blood circulation

    The aforementioned effects might be explained by the Nitric Oxide theory. Nitric Oxide (NO) is a signalling gas molecule that mediates vasodilatation and regulates blood flow and volume. NO regulates blood pressure, contributes to the immune response, controls neurotransmission and participates in cell differentiation and in many more physiological functions. Cupping therapy could cause release of NO from endothelial cells and, hence, induce certain beneficial biological changes The above information was primarily based on this literature review.
