Hijama Cupping Therapy is the cure to all diseases:
- The Prophet (PBUH) explained that Hijama is one of the best medicines: “The best medicine with which you treat yourselves is Hijama, or it is one of the best of your medicines,” or “The best treatment you can use is Hijama.” (Reference: Al Bukhari, 5371)
Therefore, with Allah’s SWT permission and the right combination of treatment, diet, exercise and eeman, anyone can heal from their sickness. Regarding Epilepsey, it is a neurological condition where electrical signals to the brain are interrupted and sporadic and cause various types of seizures;
An epileptic seizure, occasionally referred to as a fit, is defined as a transient symptom of “abnormal excessive or synchronous neuronal activity in the brain”.The outward effect can be as dramatic as a wild thrashing movement (tonic-clonic seizure) or as mild as a brief loss of awareness. It can manifest as an alteration in mental state, tonic or clonic movements, convulsions, and various other psychic symptoms (such as déjà vu or jamais vu). Sometimes it is not accompanied by convulsions but a full body “slump”, where the person simply will lose control of their body and slump to the ground. The medical syndrome of recurrent, unprovoked seizures is termed epilepsy, but seizures can occur in people who do not have epilepsy. (Source: www.Wikipedia.com)
Major Types of Epilepsy
|Types of Epilepsy||Generalized Epilepsy||Partial Epilepsy|
|Idiopathic (genetic causes)||– Childhood absence epilepsy
– Juvenile myoclonic epilepsy
– Epilepsy with grand-mal seizures on awakening Others
|– Benign focal epilepsy of childhood|
|Symptomatic (cause unknown) or cryptogenic (cause unknown)||– West syndrome
– Lennox-Gastaut syndrome
|– Temporal lobe epilepsy
– Frontal lobe epilepsy Others
Idiopathic Generalized Epilepsy In idiopathic generalized epilepsy, there is often, but not always, a family history of epilepsy. Idiopathic generalized epilepsy tends to appear during childhood or adolescence, although it may not be diagnosed until adulthood. In this type of epilepsy, no nervous system (brain or spinal cord) abnormalities other than the seizures have been identified as of yet. The brain is structurally normal on a brain magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) scan. People with idiopathic generalized epilepsy have normal intelligence and the results of the neurological exam and MRI are usually normal. The results of the electroencephalogram (EEG — a test which measures electrical impulses in the brain) may show epileptic discharges affecting the entire brain (so called generalized discharges). The types of seizures affecting patients with idiopathic generalized epilepsy may include:
- Myoclonic seizures (sudden and very short duration jerking of the extremities)
- Absence seizures (staring spells)
- Generalized tonic-clonic seizures (grand mal seizures)
Idiopathic generalized epilepsy is usually treated with medications. Some forms of this condition that may be outgrown, as is the case with childhood absence epilepsy and a large number of patients with juvenile myoclonic epilepsy.
Idiopathic Partial Epilepsy Idiopathic partial epilepsy begins in childhood and may have a family history. Also known as benign focal epilepsy of childhood (BFEC), this is considered one of the mildest types of epilepsy. It is almost always outgrown by puberty and is never diagnosed in adults. Seizures tend to occur during sleep and are most often simple partial motor seizures that involve the face and secondarily generalized (grand mal) seizures. This type of epilepsy is usually diagnosed with an EEG.
Symptomatic Generalized Epilepsy Symptomatic generalized epilepsy is caused by widespread brain damage. Injury during birth is the most common cause of symptomatic generalized epilepsy. In addition to seizures, these patients often have other neurological problems, such as mental retardation or cerebral palsy. Specific, inherited brain diseases, such as adrenoleukodystrophy (ADL) or brain infections (such as meningitis and encephalitis) can also cause symptomatic generalized epilepsy. When the cause of symptomatic general epilepsy cannot be identified, the disorder may be referred to as cryptogenic epilepsy. These epilepsies include different subtypes — the most commonly known type is the Lennox-Gastaut syndrome.
Symptomatic Partial Epilepsy Symptomatic partial (or focal) epilepsy is the most common type of epilepsy that begins in adulthood, but it does occur frequently in children. This type of epilepsy is caused by a localized abnormality of the brain, which can result from strokes, tumors, trauma, congenital (present at birth) brain abnormality, scarring or “sclerosis” of brain tissue, cysts, or infections. Sometimes these brain abnormalities can be seen on MRI scans, but often they cannot be identified, despite repeated attempts, because they are microscopic.
This type of epilepsy may be successfully treated with surgery that is aimed to remove the abnormal brain area without compromising the function of the rest of the brain. Epilepsy surgery is very successful in a large number of epilepsy patients who failed multiple anticonvulsant medications (at least two or three drugs) and who have identifiable lesions. These patients undergo a presurgical comprehensive epilepsy evaluation in dedicated and specialized epilepsy centers.
Hijama Cupping Therapy will help as it regulates bloodflow and oxygen to the brain and body. It unblocks stagnant blood and energy allows it to circulate around all the blood vessels and nerves in the spine and head. The dry cupping relaxes back muscles, and thus, the spine and neck. Therefore, it reduces blockages for neurotransmitters moving around the brain, spine and body. The Hijama will reduce and eventually stop seizures and memory loss too, as it helps so much healthy blood and oxygen reach the brain. It will unblock energy pathways/meridians in the body, strengthen muscles and improve general health and well being.
The Hijama Points on the body to administer wet cupping are: (many of these are Sunnah points where Prophet Muhammad PBUH used to have Hijama done).
- Top of the head (crown) and back of the head
- Middle of Forehead
- Sides of head (Temple)
- Top of neck (back) and front (throat)
- Hump of neck
- Middle of Shoulder blades
- Lower spine (tail and either side of spine on flat of hips)
It is generally understood according to Prophetic Medicine, that Grand-mal seizures are caused by hormonal and biological issues. But smaller, partial seizures are caused by stress, metaphysical and spiritual issues. Western Doctors do not always know how to diagnose sicknesses or offer cures. Like all sickness, it is a blessing and test from Allah. Alhumdulillah, Epileptics in particular are known to have a special place in Jannah designated for them, according to various Hadiths;
Ata Bin Rabah reported that Ibn Abbas told him; “Do you want to see a woman from the People of Jannah?” He said “Yes”. He said:
“It is this Black woman. She came to the Prophet SAW saying; “I have (epileptic) seizures, and I get exposed, so supplicate to Allah SWT for me”.
He said: “If you wish to be patient, and you will be granted Jannah; or if you wish, I will ask Allah to cure you”.
She replied; “I will be patient! But my body gets exposed (because of falling), so supplicate to Allah that I do not get exposed” and He did.”
Al-Bukhari, Muslim and others.
There are various other duahs that should be recited over the epileptic person if the are having a seizure or are unconscious. Ruqyah can also be done on them following this process; Make sure you are in wudhu and place your right hand on the epileptic persons head or any area of pain. Recite the following surahs and ayats and blow over them;
- Surah Fatiha,
- Ayat-Ul Kursi
- Last 2 ayats of Surah Baqarah
- Surah Ikhlaas, Falaq & Nas,
Otherwise, the person should be steadfast with Salaat and practice as much Quran recitation and zhikr as possible when they are conscious and healthy.
