A Proven Medical Treatment

Hirudo medicine has been used to treat patients for centuries. Today, doctors use leeches for treating abscesses, painful joints, glaucoma, myasthenia, and to heal venous diseases and thrombosis. Medical leeches are used for plastic surgery, improving brain circulation, and curing infertility.

The way of leech secretion injection is very simple. It is placed on an area of the body and bites into the skin. When this happens, the leech's saliva enters the blood channel and goes to the blood vessels where the disease is located. During treatment, we use hirudo-reflexotherapy placing the leeches on the reflexogenic points as "life needles." Medicinal leeches are used to treat:
 
 
• Chronic Bronchitis
• Pneumonia
• Bronchial Asthma
• ENT Diseases
• Periodontitis & Other Teeth Diseases
• Urological Diseases
• Male Sterility
• Phlebology Diseases of the Lower Extremities
• Osteochondrosis & Radiculitis
• Eyes Diseases (including Glaucoma)

 
  • Infantile Cerebral Paralysis (ICP)
  • Gastrointestinal Tract Diseases (Hepatitis, Cholecystitis, Pancreatitis, & Stomach Ulcer)
  • Cardiovascular Diseases (including Essential Hypertension & Ischemia Disease)
  • Systemic Diseases (Rheumatic Arthritis, Systemic Lupus Erythematosus, & Scleroderma)
  • Skin Diseases (Neurodermatitis, Psoriasis, Eczema, & Herpes)
  • Gynaecological Disorders (Commissural Processes in the Small Pelvis Female Sterility, Chronic Adnexitis, Parametritis, Endometriosis, & Fibromastopathy)
 

How Hirudo Therapy Works

A simple principle lies at the heart of all hirudo-miracles. During the process of feeding, leeches secrete a complex mixture of different biologically and pharmacologically active substances into the wound. Hirudin is the best known component of leech saliva and is sometimes used to describe all active substances in leech saliva. In reality, Hirudin refers only to one specific active substance in leech saliva 'Hirudin - inhibits blood coagulation by binding trombin. Hialurinidaza - increase interstitial viscisity,antibiotic,cleans, resolves scars. Eglins -anti-inflammatory. Acetylcholine -vasodilatator, relieves vasospasm. Bdellins - anti-inflammatory, inhibits thrypsin. Histaminlike substances -vasodilatator, increase of inflow at the bite site,harmonizes the body's immune response. Anasthetic substance - anasthetic.
