After hijama, noticeable decreases in cholesterol and triglyceride levels were observed in more than 75% of patients. High cholesterol and triglycerides are associated with increased risk of heart disease. The Damascus study suggests that Hijama can reduce the risk of heart disease when done by a skilled hijama therapist. In another study conducted by the Iranian Society of Hijama Research to determine if a there was a reduction in serum lipoproteins especially LDL cholesterol by means of Hijama. In this trial, 47 men with a history of hyperlipidemia and without chronic disease were randomly assigned into control and treated groups. Men in the treated group were done Hijama, whereas men in the control group remained untreated. The serum concentrations of lipids, collected from brachial veins, were determined at the time of Hijama and then once a week for 3 weeks. The results showed a substantial decrease in LDL cholesterol in the treated group compared to the control. The study concluded that Hijama is an effective method of reducing LDL cholesterol in men and it is therefore a preventive approach against atherosclerosis.

LDL cholesterol is considered the “bad” cholesterol, because it contributes to fatty buildups in arteries. This narrows the arteries and increases the risk for heart attack, stroke and peripheral artery disease (PAD).

HDL cholesterol can be thought of as the “good” cholesterol because a healthy level may protect against heart attack and stroke. HDL carries LDL (bad) cholesterol away from the arteries and back to the liver, where the LDL is broken down and passed from the body.

Triglycerides are the most common type of fat in the body. They store excess energy from your diet. A high triglyceride level combined with high LDL (bad) cholesterol or low HDL (good) cholesterol is linked with fatty buildups within the artery walls, which increases the risk of heart attack and stroke.

Hijama performed by a skilled Hijama therapist can help bring your cholesterol and triglycerides. Count on HijamaEnergetics to get hijama done in the proper way that benefits your health.
