Why Use Leech Therapy to Treat Arthritis?
Arthritis is one of the disabling diseases of the joints that affect not only the physical body but the quality of life as well. Chronic arthritis of a joint can cripple an individual, especially if it affects weight-bearing and multiple joints. There are many medications available to relieve pain and swelling, but sometimes this is not enough. Likewise, there are also many treatments available such as heat treatment and cold therapy to assist in the symptoms of arthritis, but these do not in fact reduce the pain on a long term basis. One of the oldest and most therapeutic therapies for this condition is leech therapy.

What is Leech Therapy?
The use of leeches is one way to treat a multitude of illness and disease. Leeches have found their niche in the medicine world and serve many purposes. For one, they are commonly used as a management for blood clotting problems and are effective for people with diabetes. Secondly, their saliva releases substances and chemicals that can help decrease the inflammation process, thereby decreasing the pain one feels in an inflamed joint.

Leech Therapy and Arthritis

Medicinal Leeches
Our joints need synovial fluid to move freely and pain-free. The articular surfaces of bones making up a joint are lined with lubricating membranes. Small membrane sacs, or bursae, occur in the space between the bones of most joints. These membranes lining joints are known as synovial membranes because they secrete synovial lubricating fluid. People suffering arthritis have less synovial fluid, causing pain on movement. The edges of the bones as well as the cartilages also deteriorate, adding more tenderness to the already painful joint. This causes inflammation due to tissue damage and prolonged, untreated arthritis can lead to deformities.

How Can Leeches Help With Arthritis?
The leeches’ saliva assists in the treatment of arthritis. There are many substances and compounds in their saliva that reduces inflammation in a joint, some of which are the compounds that are called bdelins and eglins, acting as an anti-inflammatory. Aside from anti-inflammatory components, their saliva also has an anesthetic component that deadens the pain felt in the joint and also has a histamine-like substance that acts as a vasodilator. Acetylcholine, another component of the leech’s saliva is also a vasodilator. This is important in the treatment of arthritis because when the vessels dilate [expand], it increases the flow of blood, thus, washing away the compounds that cause pain and inflammation.

Leech Treatment for Arthritis
There are approximately 600 species of leeches known worldwide and only 15 species are considered as medicinal leeches and used for arthritis and other treatments.

When a patient arrives in the clinic, the arthritic joint is first cleansed before medicinal leeches are allowed to attach themselves. They do this by puncturing the skin, where they will begin to suck on the patient’s blood. The Leechs natural process removes infected blood and at the same time, releases therapeutic components and enzymes from its saliva, allowing these components and enzymes to work their wonders in reducing inflammation and pain in the joint.

Blood expelled after different treatments
Medicinal leeches remain attached to the patient for approximately an hour [times can vary] before they automatically disengage from the skin. Through the entire process, each leech would have sucked approximately 10 ml of blood. The areas are then cleansed and dressed to help prevent further blood loss.

Frequency of Leech Therapy for Arthritis
All cases are individual, but on average, medicinal leech therapy is usually performed three times a week for approximately six weeks. Improvement in joint pain and inflammation will be noticed within the first few sessions. Not only is it a safe way to treat arthritis, but it has also been one of the cures for this disease for many years.

Leeches: What Do They Do?mehdi leech therapist

What exactly do leeches do? I mean, aside from swimming around murky pools and sticking to people’s legs, what do they really do? Well, to answer this question, perhaps it’s best if we find out what exactly leeches are first.

What Are Leeches?

Leeches are what we call annelids. They comprise the subclass Hirudinea. There are three types of leeches, fresh water leeches, terrestrial leeches, and marine leeches. Most of them live in fresh water, but there are also those that prefer to live on land, particularly in low foliage or in rain forests. There are also some leeches that can be found in dry forests, but only in places where there is a bit of moisture. During the dry season, these leeches often burrow themselves in the ground, where they hibernate even without water. They simply shrivel up and become rigid and their bodies become very dry. If you sprinkle them with water, they recover completely within ten minutes.

Leeches shown during treatment of
varied conditions

Those that live in the water usually prefer bodies of water that are relatively slow moving and calm. A lot of leeches may also be found in murky waters, which makes them harder to spot.

Leeches, quite interestingly are hermaphrodites – meaning they’re both male and female. When they reproduce, one of them merely chooses to play the role of female and another chooses to play the role of male.

Leech Therapy

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

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.

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.

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.

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.

Here at Life Clinic Hirudotherapy & Healing, we use experience known from the past to bring health and wellbeing to the future, using leech therapy.

Generally speaking, as long as we feel well, we don’t always bother with preventative treatment and certainly, with vascular and cardiovascular disease being a number one killer, leech therapy is the most natural treatment available.

Kindest regards, Mehdi

Leech Therapy, also known as Hirudotherapy [from the Latin hirudo-leech] has been recognised since ancient times and is still widely used today as a natural treatment for many areas and diseases.

Uses of Leech Therapy in Patients with Skin Grafts

 

Leeches shown during treatment of
varied conditions

Leeches, as we all know, can be viewed by many as quite disgusting creatures to look at, especially when they are full and bloated after gorging themselves on blood. Many people fear leeches and most stay away from them. Just the thought of having a leech attach themselves to a part of the body is enough to scare anybody. But remember, there are leeches that serve many purposes, especially when it comes to the medicine world. These medicinal leeches have long been used in the treatment of illnesses and diseases, and they have also been used in the healing process of skin grafts.

What is a Skin Graft?

When a patch of skin is taken from the same individual and transplanted to another part of their body, it is called skin grafting or skin transplant. The patch of skin taken from an individual is removed from an area of the body that has good circulation to increase the chance of healing quickly and properly. Common areas where skin grafts are taken are those that are hidden underneath clothes, usually from the buttocks or inner thighs. After skin harvesting, the donor site is covered with sterile and non-adhesive dressing so as to prevent the occurrence of infection.

Leeches shown during treatment of
varied conditions

After the patch of healthy skin is harvested, it is carefully spread over the required area. To keep it in place so as to promote good healing and good revascularization, well-padded dressings that exert gentle pressure are placed over the skin graft. Stitches can also be used to keep the skin graft in place to allow growth of new blood vessels, supplying the transplanted skin with blood, thus, increasing the healing process.

Skin grafts, although taken from the same individual, can still present a lot of risks. Infection of the recipient site can occur and delay healing and complications can also arise such as poor venous drainage leading to skin graft tissue death, and this is most especially true for patients whose vascular system is compromised.

If this occurs, skin grafting can be repeated in the hope that the graft will be successful the next time, but nowadays, many surgeons use leeches to avoid the above from happening.

Why Use Leech Therapy?

Leech therapy has been used for many years as a treatment for many conditions, especially when it comes to infection, so studies were done and it has been found, tested, and proven that leech therapy can really aid in the healing process of skin grafts.

How does Leech Therapy Promote Healing and Recovery of Patients who have Undergone Skin Grafting?

Leeches shown during treatment of
varied conditions

As soon as the leeches attach themselves to the skin graft site, they begin to suck blood. While sucking, they also release a component called hirudin from their saliva. This component is very important in the inhibition of platelet aggregation (the process where the platelets clump or stick together) and coagulation cascade (a series of processes that ends with fibrin clot formation).

If these two detrimental complications are present in a skin graft, there will be marked venous congestion, which slows down the healing process of the skin graft. When the skin graft receives poor circulation, the site becomes cyanotic [a condition in which the skin and mucous membranes take on a bluish colour because there is not enough oxygen in the blood], then it hardens and cools until the transplanted tissue dies. Now, because of the hirudin and the Factor Xa inhibitor present in the leechs saliva, these processes are inhibited. Since there is a vasodilator component in their saliva too, venous congestion is further reduced, promoting good blood flow into the skin graft. After continuous medicinal leech therapy, the skin graft will soon turn warm and pinkish, a good sign that there is an adequate blood supply.

Blood expelled after different treatments

Frequency of Leech Therapy in Patients with Skin Grafts

Medicinal Leeches suck on the area for up to an hour or more, where they can consume one to two teaspoons of blood. Two days after leech therapy, the skin graft site will show a noticeable increased blood supply to the area.

The frequency of leech therapy in patients with skin replants is about four days to five days, while the frequency in patients whose skin grafts became compromised is about six to ten days.

Leech Therapy Contraindications

Not all patients who undergo skin grafts are a candidate for leech therapy. Those who have AIDS or HIV are not recommended to undertake medicinal leech therapy because it could put them at risk of bacterial sepsis. Likewise, patients who take immunosuppressive drugs are also not advised to undergo leech therapy due to the same reason.

Although the risk of acquiring an infection is small, patients with skin grafts that have become unsuccessful are not always given leech therapy.
