I have just witnessed the wet cupping procedure being performed and have questions regarding the blood that is seen in the cups. I understand there are no studies that show cupping is an effective treatment for many diseases as some claim it to be but my question is regarding the blood that is released.
The procedure aims to eliminate the 'bad blood' which leaves clean blood to circulate the body, the practitioner pointed out the difference between the clean and bad blood and there was a substantial difference in how it looked and flowed. The blood was very clumped up and thick and didn't flow well at all whereas some of the blood was a lot more fluid and was able to flow easily. I was told this runny blood is clean blood and is what we want in our bodies. My questions are what is the thick clumpy blood and why is it like that? Is it actually bad blood?
Thank you in advance!
