In natural medicine, detoxification is essentially about taking the waste matter and toxins that are in the body and, using natural methods, extract them from the body. Atypically, this process involves using a combination herbs, homeopathic medicines and remedies to first cleanse the colon, and then cleanse the blood so the toxins can be properly filtered out of the body through natural filters like the kidneys, liver and even your skin.
Hirudin has a long history of detoxifying the body by cleansing the blood system. In the early days of the twentieth century, medical pioneers used leeches to treat cardiovascular disease primarily due to the natural anticoagulant, hirudin, present in leech saliva. Hirudin has a system wide anticoagulation effect, stimulating segmental reflex mechanisms that contribute to the treatment of cardiovascular diseases or conditions such as a stroke or a heart attack.
Because hirudin specifically targets, prevents and dissolves the formation of clots, it has a therapeutic value to more than just cardiovascular health. It is commonly used to treat other blood coagulation disorders, skin hematomas, and superficial varicose veins.
Some of the results of hirudotherapy are improved blood circulation and improved lymphatic system function through increased outflow of lymph from tissues. This “trophic” effect is the cleansing and nourishing transformation that results in increased nourishment of vital cells within the body. Metabolism by-products are reduced or eliminated when these cells receive improved oxygen levels and nutrients. This results in a healthier feeling and increased immune system function improving the body’s ability to fight illnesses. Immune cells are repaired and activated, blood thickness is reduced, and the level of oxygen and nutrients in the blood vessel cells in improved, improving blood vessel health, strength and elasticity.
Hirudotherapy is also used to fight high cholesterol, breaking down fats and helping to reduce cholesterol levels, making it a very effective treatment for atherosclerosis.
The combination of these effects allows the body to better utilize existing biological defenses and mechanisms to heal the body’s internal organs and blood vessels. Improved health essentially rejuvenates the body, increasing metabolism and boosting the body’s natural immune system.
Homeopathic practitioners use hirudotherapy to heal the body inside and out, including rejuvenating skin and making clients look and feel younger.
With the widespread use of hirudin to repress and remove clotting in the blood, it has been identified as an effective therapeutic treatment for cleansing the blood. Hirudin more easily rids the body of toxins through the natural biological filters like the liver, kidneys, colon and lymphatic system.
Clinical studies show hirudin to be the most effective non-drug blood cleanser available on the market today. It improves blood flow and circulation while cleansing your blood of up to 1,000 toxins typically found in the human body. Eliminating the harmful and debilitating toxins from your blood is one of the healthiest things you can do for your body.
Homeopathic doctors recommend cleansing the colon and then cleansing the blood at least twice every year to optimize your health and reduce the risk of disease and bad health due to toxic buildup in the blood, tissues, and organs of the body. Effective detoxification of the body takes 7-10 days. It is important to remember that maintaining good colon health is vital to your body’s ability to naturally flush toxins from your system. As the most effective non-drug blood cleanser on the market, hirudin helps eliminate the excess toxins that can build up from the inundation of toxic chemicals and other substances that enter our bodies every day through the air we breathe, the food we eat and water we drink.
