Beschreibung der Methode "Arthritis"
Was ist „Arthritis”?
In a severely inflamed joint, we use leeches to eliminate the inflammatory agents. The leech releases a droplet of saliva each time the blood is aspirated. This saliva penetrates deep into the tissue during treatment. As a result, old bruises are released and deposits are transported around and in the joint. In naturopathy, there is no better method of treatment for inflamed tissue than the leech treatment.
Arthritis and inflammatory joint disease - what is it?
In arthritis, joint inflammations are distinguished by viruses, bacteria (eg rheumatic fever) or metabolic disorders (eg gout) and joint inflammation due to immune disorders (eg rheumatoid arthritis).
While joint inflammation due to metabolic disorders or infections affects more the major joints such as the hip, knee and ankle, in rheumatoid arthritis more of the small joints (fingers and toes) are affected. In the case of chronic inflammatory rheumatoid arthritis, rheumatoid arthritis, genetic factors are apparently the cause of the autoimmune disease. Autoimmune here means that immune cells destroy the body's own tissue. Women are affected more often than men.
