What is immunity?
Generally speaking, the immunity means an ability of the organism to defend itself against harmful factors. In case of a human, this ability shows a multilevel and extended form. Each of our tissues and organs is well equiped with immune elements or belong to its main parts. One of the most essential protective barriers are the skin and mucous membranes. They possess diverse immune system-related mechanisms. Sensu largo, a specific immunity is directed against concrete pathogens while the unspecific immunity deals with any danger for the health.
How can we strengthen the immunity?
The human immune system adapts itself to every life conditions and every moment it learns how efficiently to fight for safety and health. Granulocites and other cells of unspecific immunity appear in every tissue and react on every danger for the health. They are able to eliminate viruses, bacteriae, pathogen fungi and even cancerous cells. The best way for efficient granulocites is the proper nutrition, physical activity and the sufficient amount of rest. In case of a disease, an effective method of immune stimulation, recommended by the Institute of Healthy Treatment, is the medical treatment. The immune – stimulating methods are primarily the inocculations.
Do the antibiotics waeken the immunity?
One unequivocal response does not exist. The properly used antibiotic, i.e. when the disease is caused by a medicine-sensitive bacteria, implied a quicker recovery and a better chance of immunity rebuilding. As far as a healthy or virus-infected organism is concerned, we speak of unbeneficial impact of antibiotics, as they ruin the natural bacterial flora of the digestive tract which participates in immunological and digestive processes. Clinical observations and statistcs reveal an impairment of immunity and a higher risk of bronchial asthma and alergical diseases caused by antibiotics.
Scientific grounds for medical cupping-treatment?
Theoratically, knowledge about anatomy, histology, physiology and modern immunology underlie the natural method of immune-modualation in form of medical cupping. Knowledge about processes taking place in the human skin influenced by underpressure and its susbsequent inflammation process, followed by natural termination constitute a well-documented knowledge of immunology. The Institute of Healthy Treatment makes use of scientific research and its own clinical experience of our doctors.
What is the purpose of medical cupping treatment and other immune-stimulating methods?
The activation of immune system, particularily in case of infections or chronical symptoms of irritation of respiratory ways, as well as stimulation and restauration of immune reactions with all its phases: intensification, break-through and retreat make up the crux of immune-stimulating measures.
Against what dieseases the traditional cupping can be applied? The range of diseases and disorders, against which Institute of Healthy Treatment recommends its usage, is quite wide. Apart from classic fever diseases related to respiratory tracts, e.g.: sore throat, sinusitis, pneumonia, the medial cupping is applied to treat postinfectional overactivity of mucous membranes. Furthermore, the cupping glasses are used to treat muscle system disorders – pain complexes, deformation of vertebra tendons, overexertion complexes. The cupping is also applied in sport medicine, rehabilitation, midwifery and pediatrics.
When may the cupping be used?
The cupping treatment is strongly recommended in dieseases of pregnancy, childbed and breast-feeding period when any pharmacology is avoided. Doctors of Institute of Healthy Treatment often apply the cupping in order to cure childage infections. There are however no age limits for any contraindications against cupping treatment. The cupping-application remains in the desicion of a doctor. When must the cupping not be used. Cupping-application, as all therapeutic measures has its recommendations and restrictions. The latter includes: autoagression dieseases, blood-coagulability disorders, phobias and dermatological diseases.
Who may apply the cupping glasses?
Cupping glasses may be applied by anyone, for the safety and efficiency however we strongly recommend entrusting your health to people possessing proper qualifications. Istitute of Healthy Treatment organises trainings accompanied by certificates in that area.
What is a cold?
Cold- head cold is a disease of upper airways stems from cooling of the body system, caused by acteriae and viruses (rhinoviruses, cornoviruses, adenoviruses and alleged flu viruses). The cold weakens the body immunity and causes a reflex tightness of upper rspiratory tract vessels which decreases its blood supply.
Can the bronchial asthma be cured?
Bronchial asthma (asthma bronchiale) is caused by tighness of bronchial tubes due to a cramp of muscle membrane and swelling of mucous membrane accompanied by a sticky muco discharge. The reason is often untangible and allerigically-related. The experience of Institute of Healthy Treatment states that a prudently applied cupping might eliminate symptoms of bronchial athma.
What are the immune cells?
Granulocite (granulocytus) – white globular blood corpuscule, filled with microscopic granules, little sacs containing enzymes that digest microorganisms and having prominent granules in the cytoplasm and a nucleus of two or more lobes. granulocytus acidophilus (acid-absorbing granulocite) mature granulocite containg acid-absorbing granules in the cytoplasm. It is commonly widespread in tissue groups in alerigical and parisital state. It successfully eliminates external antegenes in the phagocytocis. granulocytus basophilus (base-absorbing granulocite) mature granulocite containg base-absorbing granules in the cytoplasm. It also contains heparine, histamine, proteasea and bactericides. It releases prostaglandines and leukotrines. It contains receptors for E immoglobuline and undergoes therefore a degranulation. granulocytus neutrophilus (neutral granulocite) mature granulocite containg neutral granules in the cytoplasm. Usually, it makes up 35-40 % of white blood cells of peripheral blood. It takes part in the phagocytocis of bacteriae and releases bactericidal leukotriens and lipocsines.
