An Egyptian Physician Dr Sahbaa has written that Cupping exerts marked improvement on the clinical condition of patients especially visual analogue scale of pain, it significantly reduces the laboratory markers of disease activity and it modulates the immune cellular conditions particularly of innate immune response NK cell % and adaptive cellular immune response SIL-2R.

This deep tissue blood falls into decay, the red globules break up and set free the antitoxins that impregnate them. Besides that, web observe extensive polynucleosis, which enables the patient to resist infectious pathogens. In surgery, cu
