Cupping is definitely one of those alternative eastern therapies that although can raise some eyebrows also do have some obvious health benefits.
Cupping is definitely one of those alternative eastern therapies that although can raise some eyebrows also do have some obvious health benefits. People who are not familiar with the practice (mostly my family) will look at me in horror when they catch a glimpse of an unsightly bruise showing up on my neck or arm after a session of fire cupping.
To most people it does look painful due to most bruises being a result of direct pain and when you touch them admittedly they do still hurt a little. Cupping on the other hand for me has had quite a few benefits. Whilst I’m not saying this is a practice for everyone, its definitely one that has caught my interest.
The main health benefits of cupping is that the toxins can be released from the body and blockages can be cleared allowing the stagnant blood and lymph to flow freely around the body so any illness can be healed. There is great belief that cupping greatly improves respiratory and lung diseases (cold, pneumonia, asthma, bronchitis). It is also believed that cupping when used on the back, neck and shoulder can help alleviate pain as well as arthritis and joint pain. The Egyptians discussed that the use of cupping was able to treat conditions such as fever, pain, vertigo, weakened appetite and menstrual irregularities and to fast track the healing process of diseases.
This procedure involves removing all the pulp in the pulp chamber temporarily for the sake of pain relief. Pulpectomy is typically called for when pulpotomy isn’t an option and all of the tooth’s pulp has become infected, inflamed, and disease-ridden. After removal, the canals are medicated and cleaned.
Sometimes, dentists do pulpectomy on primary or milk teeth. In such cases, the pulp is replaced with resorbable material. This is the recommended course of action for irreversible pulpitis on redicular and coronal pulp as well as primary molars that are abscessed.
