Traditional Chinese medicine Fire cupping
Fire cupping is a treatment where a cotton ball dipped in 70% or greater alcohol is lit and the cotton ball is then introduced inside of the cup for a brief second. The cup is then placed on the patient. As the heat dissipates, the cooling action creates the firm suction. The cups can be moved around the patient's body along the meridians and at specific points to help with immune boosting, pulling out toxins, and other modalities.
When coffee is taken rectally in the form of a retention enema, the caffeine and other active components pass through the vascular system directly into the liver. When the liver is stimulated as such, the detoxification process of the body speeds up. Toxins and wastes that are compacted on the intestinal walls are then flushed from the body.
Autohemotherapy is a type of transfusion therapy. This type of therapy is accomplished by taking a small amount of blood from the patient and reinjecting it back immediately into the patient. It is believed that by reintroducing this blood into the body, it is forced to initiate an immune system reaction and cause the body to fight bacteria and disease. In addition, it boosts the immune system itself and makes the antioxidant system more efficient. A very small amount of blood is used each time.
Gua Sha ( 刮痧), literally "to scrape away fever" in Chinese (more loosely, "to scrape away disease by allowing the disease to escape), is an ancient medical treatment. Sometimes referred to as "spooning" or "coining" by English speakers, it has also been given the descriptive French name, "tribo-effleurage". It is a powerful detoxification tool.
