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 leech mehdi leech therapist Depression: Types and Symptoms by mehdi jaffari

Depression: Types and Symptoms by mehdi jaffari  How many times have you heard someone say “I feel depressed”? Indeed, the term ‘depressed’ is used so lightly in today’s society that a lot of people underestimate this disorder’s severity. People use the term ‘depressed’ in the same context that they use ‘sad’ or ‘lonely’.

This should not be the case. Depression is a serious illness that severely affects the lives of those afflicted with it and those who live with them. Depression isn’t what you feel when your favorite sports team loses the championships. It’s something that’s much worse.

Symptoms of Depression
Clinical depression presents itself differently across the lifespan. Quite contrary to what people believe, everyone is at risk of depression, even infants and little children. But the manifestations vary widely. A depressed child, for instance, may act irritable and rebellious as opposed to a depressed elderly person who would act melancholic. There are, however, symptoms that are common among most cases like social withdrawal and difficulty concentrating. Depressed people also have trouble remembering details and making decisions. They often delegate this task to other people, especially if they also have poor self-esteem and a low sense of self-worth.

Depressed persons also tend to get fatigued rather easily. Their energy level decreases and they usually seem markedly sluggish in their movements. They also seem to lose interest in the things they used to find interesting or pleasurable (e.g. their hobbies). Sometimes, this disinterest in pleasurable things can extend to personal relationships, which is why depressed people often withdraw from social interaction and often experience decreased libido.

People who have depression also have sleeping difficulties. They often experience hypersomnia or insomnia, and sometimes even both. They may express difficulty in falling asleep and difficulty waking up the next day. There are also times when depressed people wake up one to two hours before their usual waking hour; they also find themselves waking during the middle of the night.

Eating habits also change for people who experience depression. Some depressed people also present with either a marked increase or decrease in appetite. They may experience either Anorexia or Polyphagia. They either lose interest in eating or overeat to try to cope with their feelings.

People who are depressed may also report various health complaints like aches and pains that remain despite medical treatment. People are more likely to seek medical help for these somatic reasons rather than for their mood disorder. This is particularly common among the elderly.

Those who are depressed also often experience feelings of inadequacy, hopelessness, guilt, and profound sadness. Children and adolescents would often exhibit ‘acting out’ behavior. Adults usually exhibit anhedonia, or a loss of interest in work and social life. And the elderly usually do ‘rumination’, that is, they obsess about a certain problem to the point that their other thought processes are affected.

Lastly, depressed patients often have recurrent morbid thoughts about death, particularly about suicide. It is said that one out of ten people who have suicidal thoughts actually do act on these thoughts. All threats of suicide should be taken seriously, as all depressed patients are at risk for committing suicide.

There’s a tricky aspect of suicide, though, that everyone should be aware of. People who are intent on committing suicide often experience a remission of their feelings of despair right before they perform the deed. Some people actually take this as a sign that the person is recovering. It is anything but. Watch out for a sudden change of mood as it may be a precursor to an actual suicide attempt. Other symptoms that accompany this include excessive affection and a tendency to give away their belongings.

Types of Depression
Clinical depression takes on several forms. It varies among individuals on the aspects of duration, severity, and course.

Major Depression

People who suffer from major depression often act as if they have the weight of the world on their shoulders. It is near impossible to cheer up anyone who suffers from major depression, as they have lost all interest in things that are pleasurable. They present with the typical symptoms of depression which are loss of interest in pleasurable things, sleep disturbances, eating disturbances, fatigue, poor concentration, and thoughts of death. However, people who suffer from this type of depression can still live normally for some periods of time as a major depressive episode typically lasts at least two weeks. Episodes can be isolated or they can be recurrent.

Atypical Depression

Atypical depression, quite ironically, is actually the most common type of depression. Forty percent of the people who experience depression suffer from the atypical type. People who have this type of depression can still feel pleasure and can still have interest in things, but they mostly have all the other symptoms, especially fatigue and somatic complaints. Also, people who have atypical depression usually over-eat and over-sleep. A lot of them also seem to have an intense craving for carbohydrates. This type of depression usually starts during adolescence.

Dysthymia

Dysthymia is typically called ‘chronic depression’. This disorder lasts for an extended period of time but the severity is far lower than that of the other types. Usually, this type of depression begins during childhood and persists throughout life. Medication may simply shorten the duration or lessen the intensity. People who have dysthymia have the typical symptoms of depression but the intensity is less severe. Their moods are usually low and they may be rather irritable. This is also sometimes called ‘double depression’, as a particularly low mood can trigger an episode of major depression. People who have dysthymia are at higher risk for MDD (i.e. major depression disorder) than others.

Seasonal Depression

People who have seasonal depression only suffer from their symptoms at a particular period every year. For example, a person may feel depressed from mid-August until mid-September and be relatively okay for the rest of the year. It is diagnosed as seasonal depression if the person has two episodes for two consecutive years.

Catatonic Depression

Catatonic depression is usually seen in people who have bipolar disorder. The catatonic stage usually follows the manic stage. This is marked by a severe decrease in physical activity and a marked disinterest in anything pleasurable. People who are in this state generally ignore physical stimuli.

Psychotic Depression

An episode of depression is categorized as ‘psychotic depression’ when it is accompanied by psychotic symptoms such as hallucinations, illusions, paranoia, etc.

Post-partum Depression

Post-partum depression is experienced by new mothers, typically right after giving birth. This is usually marked by intense sadness; a woman may cry every night of her postpartum depression period and be disinterested in her baby. Some women even feel something like ‘hate’ for their baby and may even attempt to kill the child and herself.

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 therapistDifferent Types of Addiction by mehdi jaffari

Different Types of Addiction

In our fast paced society where constant demand is around us, some people are driven to the edge. People can start depending on other means to forget their problems rather than facing them – and they get addicted as a result. People also have more choices now. With the advancement of technology people have more things to obsess about. This can also alter their behaviour and later lead them to addiction.

Addicts become physically dependent on a substance or psychologically dependent on an activity. Addiction can be described as an obsession and compulsion for something. It can range from mild to severe; people start needing a regular dose of a specific substance or activity to function normally. There are also varied types of addiction, and some may not even be identified yet.

Addiction is no longer just drug addiction. Nowadays there are more things that people can get addicted to, not just because they have problems but also due to constant exposure to a barrage of advertisements about products that promise instant gratification. People can be addicted to a lot of things apart from alcohol and substance abuse. People can also get addicted to engage in specific activities even if they actually pose a risk to their mental health or their social lives and often prove to be destructive. This type of addiction may not be evident at first, but as physical and psychological dependency emerges it will soon turn into an addiction. Addiction can therefore refer to a lot of types: addiction to prescription drugs, addiction to shopping, addiction to food, etc.

Well-Known Types of Addiction

Drug Addiction

Most of us are well aware of what this is. Traditionally, it referred to addiction to illegal drugs like cocaine. These illegal drugs are obviously not sold in pharmacies; typically they are smuggled in or manufactured in an obscure factory and sold in the streets – thus the term street drugs. Now, however, drug addiction can just as easily be applied to addiction to prescribed medication. Some therapeutic drugs like Vicodin are highly addictive. These drugs are legal and therefore dispensed in pharmacies, but they are meant for controlled use and they require prescription.

A person is considered to be physically dependent on a drug if he develops withdrawal symptoms upon stopping use.

Use usually starts with simple experimentation. With constant use, however, drug addiction (manifested by reliance and dependence on the substance) ensues. Why would anyone start using or experimenting on something that is well known to be addictive? Several reasons come to mind.

It may be simple peer pressure. This is especially true in the case of addiction to illegal drugs. Someone does not want to be thought cowardly or labeled as a wet blanket by his friends so he tries drugs to prove that he’s none of the above. Naturally, he’ll have to do this again and again while he’s with his friends or he will lose his friends’ regard. Sooner or later, he will be using drugs not because he wants to please his friends but because he is already addicted to the substance.

It may also be a legitimate medical condition. This is especially applicable in the case of addiction to prescription drugs. Someone who has been given Vicodin for pain relief may feel that his dosage is insufficient and start taking more than the prescribed number of pills. Dependence sets in and the patient will soon be inventing more pain symptoms to get more of the same medication.

There is a wide array of drugs that a person can be addicted to apart from illegal drugs. There are also prescription and over-the-counter drugs. These include stimulants, sedatives, pain relief medication, hypnotics, and opiate analgesics. Particularly addictive are drugs that promote feelings of well being and euphoria.

Withdrawal symptoms can also vary from one person to another. The most common are anxiety, depression and craving. These withdrawal symptoms make stopping drug use almost physically impossible for some people.

Alcohol Addiction

Most adults drink alcohol. It is always present at parties and social gatherings. Wine is perfect for cocktails, during dinner and after dinner. Beer is perfect for weekend ballgames and card games. Unfortunately, frequent use can lead to dependence on alcohol; genetics can also make someone more vulnerable to alcoholism.

Alcoholics can drink unbelievable amounts of alcohol without any noticeable impact; they usually end a binge when they pass out. They cannot resist its lure even if drinking will cause health problems (e.g. cirrhosis of the liver) and risk to life and limb (e.g. driving under the influence is a major cause of vehicular accidents). Drinking becomes a compulsion – either they drink or they suffer withdrawal symptoms.

There are many alcohol withdrawal symptoms. They vary according to the severity of alcoholism. They depend on how long the person has been addicted to alcohol, on the degree of alcohol intake and on the person’s age. Mild symptoms include anxiety and sleep disturbances. In severe cases the individual may experience hallucinations, delirium and convulsions which can be life threatening.

Other Types of Addiction

Nicotine Addiction

Smoking is one the leading vices today. Individuals are not addicted to the habit of smoking but to nicotine which tobacco cigarettes and cigars contain. Smoking causes various health problems and puts smokers at risk for an even greater variety of medical problems.

Caffeine Addiction

Most of us at work cannot live without coffee. Coffee shops at every corner and coffee vending machines at every office building have made drinking coffee a very convenient habit. In result, some people become addicted to caffeine. They feel down and lethargic and they cannot function without it.

Apart from coffee there are also different caffeine products such as chocolate, cola and energy drinks. These products induce effects similar to psychoactive drugs such as alcohol and cocaine.

Caffeine addiction levels can differ depending on intake. Some are content with a couple of cups of coffee but others cannot survive without cans of energy drink or liters of cola.

Internet Addiction

Internet addiction is especially evident among young people. It is also accompanied by Online Compulsive Disorder or, in slang term, Screen Sucking. Symptoms include setting aside important work for trivial things such as chatting, surfing the web, watching internet videos, responding to unimportant emails, and checking membership profiles at various social networking sites. This addiction can make one vulnerable to cyber crimes and can lead to other forms of addiction such as addiction to online gambling or online gaming.

PC, Video and Arcade Game Addiction

Games online and offline are visually engaging and entertaining; they can also be very addictive. Just like internet addicts, game addicts spend all their waking hours in front of a video monitor to hunt goblins or shoot terrorists. They lead very dysfunctional lives.

Shopping Addiction

Some women refer to this as retail therapy. Buying items that you need is essential but splurging on things that you don’t really need – and won’t even use – is a different story. Shopping addicts usually clear out all of their old things – even things which have just been bought recently – to make way for the new things they will be buying. It is not possession or ownership that those addicted to shopping enjoy – it is the act of shopping itself. Effects usually include a lot of clutter and a lot of debt.

Sex Addiction

People who have sexual compulsion are fixated on the sexual act. They cannot think about anything else and they are always focused on where and how they can get it next. Their obsession with sex reaches a point where they are no longer productive at work. They cannot stop their compulsive behavior even at the risk of contracting STD and losing their family, work and standing in the community.

leeches leech mehdi leech therapist Causes of Phobia by mehdi jaffari

Causes of Phobia

Although many researchers have tried to establish the cause of phobia, this disorder still has an unknown cause. It is commonly believed that the cause of phobia and other anxiety disorders can be associated with genes, irregularity in brain chemistry and previous experiences.

Some experts say that phobias run in families. For instance, someone whose immediate family members have a history of hydrophobia (fear of water) is much more likely to have hydrophobia than somebody else whose family has no history of hydrophobia.

Some cases of phobia may also be attributed to the amygdala that is located in the limbic system of the brain. The amygdala is responsible for the regulation of fear and aggression. When a person experiences fear, the amygdala release hormones to alert the body and prepare it for defense. This is called the “flight-or-fight response.”

Childhood experiences are also believed to be a cause of phobias. Someone who has had a traumatic childhood experience – especially a near-death one – may carry his or her fear of the same experience and of the objects associated with this experience into adulthood. For instance, someone who has been in a serious car accident when he or she was a child will probably never learn how to drive or will probably be afraid to ride in a car. Meanwhile, someone who has nearly died from a snake bite when he or she was younger will probably be intensely afraid of snakes; the mere thought of them may even make him or her feel intense fear.

Many people have a phobia. However, such people usually avoid the object of their fear. They also usually avoid anything that will put them in the situation they fear. Thus, their phobias are usually left undiagnosed and untreated.

Unfortunately, extreme phobia can lead to serious repercussions. People who have phobias may resort to social isolation, may engage in harmful or risky activities (e.g. substance abuse), or may experience depression. Ultimately, their phobia may render them unable to lead normal lives.

Conclusion

Phobias are disorders that require professional and medical attention. If you have reason to believe that you have a phobia, you should seek medical attention as soon as possible. Only this way can you prevent your phobia from negatively impacting your normal functions and from leading to graver consequences and further complications.

Taking action and facing your fears is never an easy task, and you need all the help and support that you can get. Before you can get such support, however, you need to take the first step and seek help for yourself

leeches leech mehdi leech therapist Strokes improved after leech therapy bymehdi jaffari on video

Cardiovascular Disease and Leech Therapy by mehdi jaffari

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.

Application of Leech Therapy Strokes improved after leech therapy

Aside from those mentioned above, there are many conditions where leech therapy is considered useful. Leech therapy is sometimes used for Coronary Heart disease, where atheromatous plaques accumulate within the walls of the arteries that provide the blood supply for the myocardium.

Leeches shown during treatment

of varied conditions

It is also used for ischemic heart disease, where the blood supply to the heart is reduced. For this condition, leeches are applied to specific areas. During the first session, only about two to three leeches are used in each area, but as the treatment progresses, as many as 12 leeches can be used. During the first week, leech therapy can be applied every day if possible, leading to three times a week, over a course of approximately three to four weeks, depending on the individual. Strokes improved after leech therapy

For cardiovascular diseases, a minimum of three to four leeches can be applied to each specific area during the first session. Thereafter, up to 14 leeches can be applied.  This treatment is usually applied three times a week for a total of ten applications, depending on the severity of the disease. 

For Valvular heart diseases, again, leeches are placed in specific areas twice a week. Treatment is usually applied for a minimum of twelve sessions.

Blood expelled after different treatments

Leech therapy is effective against these diseases, including hypertension because of its ability to relieve the stagnation of the blood in the vessels. When a leech is applied over a certain area, the blood flow to that area will increase, leading to better circulation. In fact, there are several cases where the patient’s overall wellbeing is improved after leech therapy and rejuvenation takes place.

leeches leech mehdi leech therapist high blood pressure improved after leech therapy by mehdi jaffari

The blockage of an artery in the brain by a clot (thrombosis) is the most common cause of a stroke. The part of the brain that is supplied by the clotted blood vessel is then deprived of blood and oxygen. As a result of the deprived blood and oxygen, the cells of that part of the brain die. Typically, a clot forms in a small blood vessel within the brain that has been previously narrowed due to a variety of risk factors including:

  • high blood pressure (hypertension),
  • high cholesterol,
  • diabetes, and
  • smoking.

Embolic stroke

Another type of stroke may occur when a blood clot or a piece of atherosclerotic plaque (cholesterol and calcium deposits on the wall of the inside of the heart or artery) breaks loose, travels through open arteries, and lodges in an artery of the brain. When this happens, the flow of oxygen-rich blood to the brain is blocked and a stroke occurs. This type of stroke is referred to as an embolic stroke. For example, a blood clot might originally form in the heart chamber as a result of an irregular heart rhythm, such as occurs in atrial fibrillation. Usually, these clots remain attached to the inner lining of the heart, but occasionally they can break off, travel through the blood stream, form a plug (embolism) in a brain artery, and cause a stroke. An embolism can also originate in a large artery (for example, the carotid artery, a major artery in the neck that supplies blood to the brain) and then travel downstream to clog a small artery within the brain.

Cerebral hemorrhage

A cerebral hemorrhage occurs when a blood vessel in the brain ruptures and bleeds into the surrounding brain tissue. A cerebral hemorrhage (bleeding in the brain) can cause a stroke by depriving blood and oxygen to parts of the brain. Blood is also very irritating to the brain and can cause swelling of brain tissue (cerebral edema). Edema and the accumulation of blood from a cerebral hemorrhage increases pressure within the skull and causes further damage by squeezing the brain against the bony skull.

Subarachnoid hemorrhage

In a subarachnoid hemorrhage, blood accumulates in the space beneath the arachnoid membrane that lines the brain. The blood originates from an abnormal blood vessel that leaks or ruptures. Often this is from an aneurysm (an abnormal ballooning out of the wall of the vessel). Subarachnoid hemorrhages usually cause a sudden, severe headache and stiff neck. If not recognized and treated, major neurological consequences, such as coma, and brain death will occur.

Vasculitis

Another rare cause of stroke is vasculitis, a condition in which the blood vessels become inflamed.

Migraine headache

There appears to be a very slight increased occurrence of stroke in people with migraine headache. The mechanism for migraine or vascular headaches includes narrowing of the brain blood vessels. Some migraine headache episodes can even mimic stroke with loss of function of one side of the body or vision or speech problems. Usually, the symptoms resolve as the headache resolves

Leech therapy is effective against these diseases, including hypertension because of its ability to relieve the stagnation of the blood in the vessels. When a leech is applied over a certain area, the blood flow to that area will increase, leading to better circulation. In fact, there are several cases where the patient’s overall wellbeing is improved after leech therapy and rejuvenation takes place.

leeches leech mehdi leech therapist Spiritual Self-confidence by mehdi jaffari

Spiritual Self-confidence

Many people have problems with lack of self-confidence and this can affect life in different but major areas, depending on the individual. If you’re not able to recognise the beauty within yourself, you’re always in conflict about what you think and what others think about you. This can cause unhappiness & issues in your personal life and certainly jealousy towards friends or the opposite sex around your partner, even with people you don’t know!

It doesn’t matter if we’re tall, short, fat, or thin, pretty or ugly, black or white, rich or poor. We all have different expectations based on our lives and we all deserve happiness.

From years of Spiritual experience helping people in this diverse area, I found the answer using a special power and strong energy in a potion for both men and women that I named “surgery without the knife”. This spiritual potion that I make individually for people gives them the self confidence to move forward in life, makes them aware of their inner beauty, they feel vibrant, younger, and more desirable and others around notice something completely different.

For more information, please phone or email for a consultation.
