Hijama or wet cupping is a safe, non-invasive and economical way to help in treating and preventing many diseases with no side effects where blood with toxins is drawn by vacuum from a superficial skin scratching for therapeutic purposes.
Hijama in (Arabic: حجامة) means "suction" cupping therapy had its birth in Egypt. The Ebers Papyrus, written around 1550 B.C., Some books believe it had been practiced by Imhotep 2600 B.C.(4600 years ago) In cupping, the Ancient Egyptians and Sumerians saw it as a remedy for every disorder, also in China, Greece, etc.
Ancient Egyptians believed that the metu are all the conduits covering the body which carry the body fluids such as blood, urine, water, air, humors, mucus, feces, and sperm. The metu is comparable to the Nile river for the body. Similar to flooding and droughts, toxics and obstructions cause excess of liquid in some parts of the body and liquid scarcity in others causing the body function to become more prone to pain and illness. The removal of these harmful substances is vital for proper health treatment. Some forms are wet cupping therapy and senna tea which were regularly used by Ancient Egyptians to purge their bodies and cleanse them of disturbing substances and infections (Ebers Papyrus, 1550 B.C.)
Wet cupping therapy is one of the most important Ancient Egyptian medicines to release the nitric oxide and detox the capillaries. These capillaries are 95% of the blood vessels and have a high chance of being blocked by fats, heavy metals, pesticides, hormones, dead blood cells, platelets, etc. In time, that will lead to many diseases such as atherosclerosis, autoimmune diseases, blood thickness, and cancer. Blood movement in the capillaries is affected by factors like diet, stress, and genetic.
The Hijama was highly recommended by Prophet Muhammad “The Hijama is the best of your remedies” and he added the main points and the importance of the time especially (17,19,21) days of Islamic calendar directly after the full moon and hence well-practiced by Muslim scientist like Al-Zahrawi (the father of surgery) and Avicenna (The Canon of Medicine encyclopedia) who elaborated and developed the method further.
