leeches leech mehdi leech (Hirudotherapy) therapist LEECHES THERAPY NEW ZEALAND by mehdi jaffari

Cardiovascular Disease and Leech Therapy leeches and heart deases

leeches leech mehdi leech (Hirudotherapy) therapist

Since the early days of the 20th century, people have been using leeches to treat cardiovascular diseases because of the Hirudin enzyme in the leeches saliva, a substance which has systemic anticoagulative effects. A physician would usually prescribe the use of leeches when a person suffered a stroke or heart attack.  Also, Hirudin stimulates segmental reflex mechanisms and this contributes to the treatment of cardiovascular diseases.

Hirudin and Drugs

It was only when anticoagulants such as aspirin and heparin were invented that the use of leeches declined. The effects of aspirin which are the inhibition of platelet aggregation and for the dissolving of thrombus or embolus, or thrombolysis, were found to be much more effective in treating cardiovascular conditions. However, scientists began to investigate further uses of Hirudin for cardiovascular conditions and they found Recombinant Hirudin was useful for Myocardial Infarctions (MI) and unlike heparin; hirudin was actually a direct thrombin inhibitor which did not need to have a cofactor like antithrombin III. Also, hirudin could inactivate fibrin-bound thrombins. However, the effects of the drugs derived from hirudin were much too potent and caused quite massive hemorrhagic adverse effects. Because of this, hirudin was not considered a good primary treatment for myocardial infarction; however, they found that it was a good treatment for Heparin-induced thrombocytopenia Type 2.

Natural Leech Therapy

of varied conditions

Natural leech therapy that is, the actual application of live leeches on the skin, was believed to have been an effective treatment for thrombosis and other coronary syndromes and Leeches have also been used to treat hypertension. Because leeches suck a hosts blood and its hirudin has anticoagulation, it may cause hypovolemic hemodilution which are two of the things that will reduce the pressure of the blood flow on the walls of the blood vessels, thus leading to reduction in blood pressure. However, it should be noted that since there are much more effective treatments for the reduction of blood pressure, such as anti-hypertensive drugs, leech therapy is now mostly considered as an adjuvant therapy rather than an actual first-line treatment.

leeches leech mehdi leech (Hirudotherapy) therapist It’s our pleasure to announce Leech Therapy are now available in canada

leeches leech mehdi leech (Hirudotherapy) therapist   Let’s first ask ourselves ‘how much do we know about our bodies?’  After all, we don’t know what’s going to happen to us in the next ten minutes, ten weeks or ten years!  We live day by day enjoying life and all that’s involved, whether it’s coping with work pressures, relationships, family life, taking time out on holiday, enjoying financial gain as well as facing debt……or anything else you can think of, it’s pretty straightforward – most of us lead busy lives and simply take our bodies for granted.

Mehdi - Leech Therapist

No, this isn’t about selling life or health insurance!  This is about asking ourselves how much thought do we give in understanding what’s naturally available to help us enjoy a healthy and long life.

Unfortunately, most of us are aware of someone who has suffered a stroke or heart attack and it would be easy to presume these problems only occur in the later part of people’s lives, but sadly that’s not always the case.  Cardiovascular and vascular disease for instance, is the number one cause of death in many countries and we are all aware that good diet and exercise helps reduce this risk and of course there are people like myself that have a high risk passed down through family genes, but not many people are aware that leech therapy is also a natural way of ‘preventative’ treatment.

Like many people, I had absolutely no idea I had cardiovascular disease, let alone an ‘advanced’ stage of disease, which would normally be observed in someone at least 20 years older than myself!  Without doubt, I was incredibly fortunate surviving four heart attacks in one day before surgeons found many of my arteries had serious narrowing or complete occlusion.

Through my years of experience in leech therapy and my sister’s recommendation as a specialist in this area, I achieved incredible results using leech therapy to treat my carotid arteries, left subclavian artery and general well-being.  I believe it’s important we give our blood a ‘cleanse’ and leeches have been used for this type of natural treatment for thousands of years.

Mehdi - Leech Therapist

Leeches shown during treatment

You can see I have provided photos of blood expressed from leeches from various treatments.  The lighter red, clear blood is healthy, whereas the thick dark blood indicates a problem, usually also showing ‘bits and pieces’ – colestral and clots.  Nothing in western medicine is known to dissolve plaque, as my interventional cardiologist stated in an article provided to the ‘Sydney Morning Herald’ [view press releases] but tests proved that after leech therapy, my blockages had been cleared.

It’s my pleasure to welcome you to Leech Therapy!

leeches leech mehdi leech (Hirudotherapy) therapist

I refer to all areas in my profession as ‘Tools for Life’ and Leech Therapy is another ‘tool’ available to all of us as a natural gift of nature.  I hope the information in these pages provides you with a greater understanding of these amazing creatures.

I’m aware many people are fearful of leeches for a variety of reasons.  Some, because they have experienced leeches attaching themselves to their feet and legs without permission whilst walking through small streams and rivers and others who have heard stories about slimy worm-like creatures!  Either way, it’s only through understanding the background and health benefits that leeches provide, that we can truly appreciate the amazing assistance they can offer our health.

Yes and No.
*Yes, fresh and ground garlic are raw.
*No, because sometimes the crushed, minced and chopped available in the supermarkets may have some preservatives. Make sure you read the label.

Health Benefits

1. Garlic is very rich in sulphur-containing compounds (thiosulfonates, sulfoxides, dithiins), like allicin, alliin, ajoene, which are responsible for the pungent odor. These also have many health promoting effects.

2. Regular consumption of garlic controls the blood pressure, lowers the cholesterol and triglyceride levels in blood, and prevents platelet aggregation, thus reducing the risk of atherosclerosis, heart attack and stroke.

3. The sulphur containing compounds stimulates the secretion of nitric oxide that relaxes the blood vessels, maintains the blood pressure, na dimproves the boold flow through the vessels.

4. Inhibits the formation of plaque in and calcification of coronary arteries, thus preventing stroke.

5. Reduced formation of plaque also reduces the build up of LDL cholesterol in blood.
