- Leech therapy - I believe that everyone who is qualified to apply medicinal leeches, should do it, at least, twice a year for prevention because of the curative and healing power the (leech therapy ) medicinal leeches have on the body and the brain. Venous diseases and inflammation are becoming more harmful in our society. Back in the 19th century they used to ridicule Dr. Francois Broussaint who was Napoleon Bonaparte ’s medical doctor. He believed that medicinal leeches could be applied for almost any diseases because healthy blood was very important. We can agree that not every sickness is blood related, but clean and healthy blood is important to maintain good health. - Leech therapy.
Heart Problems Today, Scientists agree that blood diseases are a measure concern in our society. In fact, read this article from the C.D.C.: “Heart disease is the leading cause of death in the United States and is a major cause of disability. The most common heart disease in the United States is coronary heart disease, which often appears as a heart attack. In 2010, an estimated of 785,000 Americans had a new coronary attack, and about 470,000 had a recurrent attack.
