The study aimed to illustrate the cardio-protective effect of blood-let out cupping therapy in dysglycemia. The controversy of insulin cardio-protection among dysglycemic patients is a confusing challenge. Glucose-insulin disproportion is a major reason for accumulation of acidic metabolites in the body leading to the current controversy about insulin role in cardio-protection. The micro-capillary dysfunction, the improper tissue perfusion with blood and the accumulation of acidic metabolites in the myocardium are leading to each other and could contribute to progression into major cardiac events. Withdrawal of these metabolites could disturb this ischemic vicious circle and offer the answer for the controversy of insulin cardio-protection among dysglycemic patients. Suction in cupping therapy works specifically on the blood trapped within the tissues together with the acidic metabolites which are believed to be functionally obliged to it. Skin scratching with the action of repeated suction delivers nitric oxide to the area which is a potent cardio protectant in health and disease.
Seven diabetic patients on insulin with recurrent moderate chest tightness due to variable grades of myocardial ischemia refused coronary catheterization. Therefore; a session of basic cupping therapy on the upper back and front of the chest was advised and employed for them.
Dramatic symptomatic relief and clinical recovery was documented in six patients. They were followed up for 18 months without any further cardiac issues.
On conclusion; cupping therapy in this way becomes a maneuver that could lead to correction of ischemic myocardial situations, and the tissues interstitial space therefore constitutes the intelligent yard where cupping exerts its biological talents.
