Hijama detoxifies, rids toxins from the body and creates an alkaline ph level in the blood. This allows the body to be in a balance state and enables the oxygen to reach the organs.
Every cell in our body is part of the tissue or organ, which produces energy and builds waste substances that need to be eliminated. If these organs get filled with toxins, the body will not function properly.
The body considers everything that is not food to be toxic to the body. Some examples of products that are toxic to the liver are prescription medicine, medicines that contain additives, preservatives, binders, fillers, alcohol, caffeine, smoking, secondary smoking, carbon dioxide, carbon monoxide and food colourings.
As these harmful toxins enter our body, it goes through the liver, the liver is the chemical factory where it neutralizes and eliminates different types of toxins. The liver makes these harmful elements soluble so it is easy for it to get rid of by urinating, sweating and breathing.
It is Sunnah to get Hijama: The Prophet Muhammad (may Allāh be pleased with him) is reported to have had Hijama performed on his head for migraine [Bukhari], on his foot after a sprain [Ibn Majah], on his neck [Abu Dawud], on his hip for hip pain [Abu Dawud] and between his shoulders for detoxification [Ahmed].
