Hijama is like an oil-change for the Human Body


"Hijama is like an oil-change for the Human Body" - by Dr. Munir Ravalia from Zakariya Health Studios

This is a guest-post in the form of a written interview with Dr. Munir Ravalia - a male cupping therapist & dental practitioner based in South London, England.

- Please give us a short introduction about yourself, and in particular how you ended up being a hijama therapist?

I am Dr. Munir Ravalia from Zakariya Health Studios. I have been doing hijama for over 4 years and learnt the science in Egypt. Having had hijama done on myself I realised the great benefits. I also have set up the International Cupping Therapy Society with Dr. Tamer from Egypt to bring all practitioners of all faiths together. We need to have the conventional medical work take hijama seriously and this can only come about through proper randomised controlled studies. Please all assist us and work with us. The membership is free so please join us.

I have great admiration for and give sincere thanks to sister Anisa from Natural Health Natures Finest, and I call on all in the field to assist her as she has really done great work for all those involved in terms of having the first registered course, insurance for practitioners and having hijama (wet cupping) recognised in UK.


- What particular illnesses/ conditions (if any), do you specialise / had the most experience in?

Obviously many people come for Sunnah treatment who are medically fit and well, but I have treated many cases of people who have lost faith in conventional medicine and their general medical practitioners and alhamdulillah Hijama has been a gift from God for them.

Having worked in head and neck trauma, I have treated many people suffering from conditions related to this anatomical part of the body and currently work closely with brother Walid Zam Zam who specialises in herbal medicine and ruqiya treatment. So we combine our efforts and treat the patients as many conditions have a multifactorial aetiological cause and as such require such management. Many patients suffering from stress and those of a nervous disposition find great help with hijama therapy.


- And do you find that in your experience, the conditions/illnesses that you have come across respond well to cupping (hijama) therapy? And if so, what are they?

As I have mentioned most conditions I find to be treated completely and holistically require hijama/lifestyle changes of the patient/ herbal medication from the sunnah eg honey/blackseed and (psychological/jinn related conditions) require ruqiya.

- Also what would you say about using cupping as a general preventative therapy (which by getting rid of bad blood/ toxins in the body may help prevent conditions like high cholesterol/ heart disease / cancer in the long term)? And how often would you recommend this (once a month? once/twice a year?)

The way I describe cupping is like a car needing an MOT every year. The body needs the same: drain the old oil (blood) and refresh/detox the body. For those medically healthy once a year before the summer seasons should suffice, as according to prophetic traditions, but more than this causes no harm.

A perspective on the effects and benefits of the ancient art of Hijama therapy.


A perspective on the effects and benefits of the ancient art of Hijama therapy - By David Parker ND




As a naturopath, nutritionist and healer I was intrigued to explore the scientific reasons why the ancient art of cupping or Hijama therapy was so effective in treating a whole host of ailments and illnesses.

The wet cupping I found particularly fascinating and was curious to know more about the blood which was being extracted via the cup from various areas of the body.

From this viewpoint I started analysing the blood under dark field and light field microscopy.

This proved very insightful and proved to me something I had suspected.

The dry layered blood sample viewed under light field microscopy consistently showed high concentrations of toxic metals and chemicals, as well as showing evidence of bacterial and parasitic activity.

The appearance of the live blood under the dark field microscope showed that there were high concentrations of acids and inflammatory proteins often referred to as fibrin.

These phenomena were more frequently present when the blood was removed from an area where the patient was experiencing pain and inflammation. I conclude from this that the area of pain appears to act like a magnet for acids, toxins and pathogens.

It is therefore very logical to assume that removal of these from the local area will bring about symptomatic relief, while encouraging fresh circulating blood to deliver healing nutrients and oxygen to the affected tissue, thus providing healing and resolution.

Together with dietary change, cleansing and detoxification therapy, along with education regarding the avoidance of toxins within the patient’s environment, I see Hijama wet cupping as a very effective adjunctive therapy on the path to wellness.



Proteinous waste found in live blood sample viewed under dark field microscopy
(This is often found when the diet contains too much cooked food and lacks enzymes for complete digestion)





Rouleaux and Fibrin appearing in Live blood under dark field microscopy
(This formation of red blood cells and inflammatory proteins are always present in blood which is overly acidic and infected)




The ideal live blood picture under dark field microscopy
Observe the red cells sitting separately in their own space therefore having the freedom to travel around the body network of capillaries, which in some cases are one red cell in diameter. Observe the free floating white blood cells known as neutrophils, again having the freedom to patrol around the body searching out toxins and pathogens)




Toxic metals appearing on edge of dried blood sample under light field microscopy.
(The thicker and denser the grey band, the more metals there are in the blood)




Degenerative processes evidenced under light field microscopy
(The white lakes seen here indicate that tissues associated with the vascular system have become inflamed and are harbouring atherosclerotic plaques, toxic metals and cholesterol)



How the dry layered blood sample should look under light field microscopy
(Observe the absence of any white lakes, the clean finely cut edge showing no toxic metals and the black lines all joining together like a matrix)


David Parker works in the field of clinical nutrition, naturopathy and the research of the effectiveness of both modern and ancient healing techniques.

Microscopic assessment of blood is one means of determining the nutritional status as well as the toxic elements present in a person’s blood.

A before and after assessment is useful in determining the changes occurring as a result of the therapy being applied.
