Kajian saintifik khasiat berbekam untuk kesihatan perlu diperluaskan

Berbekam, satu teknik perawatan yang wujud sejak lebih 3000 tahun yang lalu adalah merupakan salah satu sunnah Rasul saw. Apabila kita berbekam berniatlah kita untuk mengikut sunnah Nabi dalam usaha pengubatan.

Dah lama saya tak berbekam, rasanya hampir 2 tahun, atas kesibukan yang sepatutnya boleh dielakkan. Bagaimanapun disebabkan keadaan badan yang berasa amat tidak selesa selepas musim raya, lalu saya pun berbekam. Ada banyak pusat rawatan berbekam yang ada ketika ini di seluruh Malaysia, juga seluruh dunia. Pilihlah ikut keserasian masing-masing.

Terlalu sedikit artikel yang boleh didapati mengenai kajian saintifik untuk bekam ini. Dikongsikan di bawah ini beberapa artikel.

Said bin Jubir  berkata dari Ibn Abbas r.a bahwa Rasulullah saw bersabda:
"Kesembuhan dapat diperoleh dengan tiga cara: pertama dengan meminum madu, kedua dengan berbekam/hijamah, dan ketiga dengan (terapi) besi panas. Dan aku tidak menganjurkan umatku untuk melakukan pengobatan dengan besi panas." (HR. Bukhori)

Getting rid of bad blood
Sep 13, 2008                          

One of the oldest medical treatments, the practice of hijama, which involves suctions that draw out stagnant or congested blood from a wound deliberately cut in the body, has its origins in the Middle East. The Ebers Papyrus, one of the oldest medical books in history written in 1550 BCE - stated that the healing method cleansed the circulatory system by removing contaminated blood via a vacuum that sucked the fluid through tiny incisions on the skin.

The practice has persisted to the present day with many in the region still using it to treat ailments from headaches and eye problems to gout and heart disease. "We know that when we do cupping therapy, making these suctions on the skin and clearing out the stagnated blood, it can decrease problems like chest diseases and blood pressure because we remove the bad blood," explained Dr Mohamed Tamimi, a physiotherapist who treats patients using hijama at the Al Rahma Medical Center.

In the same way that a tree log can impede a river's flow, the idea is that "bad" or dark clotted blood is to blame for circulation problems. "When there is an area of water that becomes stagnant, when there is not running water, what happens?" Dr Tamimi said. "This water, after time, will bring diseases and flies, so it's the same with blood. We can say a section is more liable to be diseased and infected."

The theory behind hijama is that, unless the capillaries are able to carry oxygen and nutrient-rich blood to the body's cells, tissues and organs may weaken or operate inefficiently. As the body is unable to naturally rid itself of the toxic stasis blocking blood vessels, a 30-minute hijama session can help rejuvenate patients and alleviate pain associated with 80 per cent of common diseases, Dr Tamimi said.

"Kidney problems, heart problems, stroke, gout - these can be treated with this procedure," he said, adding that he would prescribe the treatment for anyone feeling fatigued, restless, stressed or sluggish. "It is in my view that it feels like 20 or 30 times more effective than a massage," he said. The procedure has changed over the centuries, with modern medicine and concerns about hygiene and infection.

From about seven cups, only about 300-400 ml of blood in all is extracted. The bad blood collected in the jars is easy to remove as it clots easier. "It looks like a dark, thick jelly because the blood is more liable to clot," Dr Tamimi said.

There is also an optimal time for hijama based on the lunar calendar, Dr Tamimi said. Just as the moon affects the ocean's tide, the same principles can apply to the human body. "When the full moon is out, in the 15th day of a month, we believe that the moon will have this affect to draw a good amount of blood," he said. The connection between circulation and the lunar cycle has a well-documented history in both Eastern and Western medical traditions.

Dr Tamimi said the three hijama specialists at the Al Rahma centre treat non-Muslims, as well as toddlers and elderly people. He advised healthy people to have at least an annual session, but cautioned that pregnant women as well as people with anaemia and haemophilia should avoid the treatment. He also said that more research needs to focus on the medical benefits of hijama, noting that Egyptian scholars have written about the procedure's ability to decrease cholesterol levels and blood pressure. "I advise all countries to look to this traditional way because it can save money, it can save lives and save operations," he said. "To me, hijama is really a treasure but it needs more research."

A perspective on the effects and benefits of the ancient art of Hijama (Cupping) therapy - By David Parker ND

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 analysing 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.

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.

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