At this time of crisis performing Hijama is irresponsible. The patient and practitioner is at risk. It is better to take care of yourself with a healthy diet and herbal supplements or remedies.

  • Ancient remedies play a complementary role to Western drugs in fighting the potentially deadly infection, officials, doctors say
  • But others say TCM works only as a placebo and that people who say they have benefited would have recovered anyway
More than 80 per cent of 
 patients in China are being treated with 
traditional Chinese medicine
 (TCM) alongside more mainstream antiviral drugs, according to local health officials.

While acknowledging that the ancient practice has no specific treatments for Covid-19 – the pneumonia-like disease caused by the virus, which has sickened over 82,000 people and killed more than 2,800 since the outbreak began in central China in December – some experts said they had witnessed a higher recovery rate among those using both TCM and Western drugs, than solely mainstream treatments.

Xu Nanping, a vice-minister of science and technology, said last week that about 85 per cent of patients in China had been given the combined treatment.

China’s National Health Commission prescribes the use of TCM alongside Western drugs in its guidelines for the treatment of people infected with the coronavirus.

Song Juexian, a doctor with the integrated TCM and Western medicine unit at Xuanwu Hospital in Beijing, said traditional Chinese medicine had the benefit of enhancing the patients’ “internal balance”.

“Chinese medicine has been practised for at least 3,000 years. It is the wisdom of our ancestors and it is [still] progressing,” she said. “I believe the effects of combined use of TCM and Western medicine will become better and better.”

Gao Xiaojun, a spokesman for the Beijing Health Commission, was equally keen to promote the use of the ancient technique, saying TCM had made a significant contribution to patients’ recovery.

“Traditional Chinese medicine has played an active role in improving the recovery rate and lowering the mortality rate among patients,” he told a press conference on Monday.

According to him, 87 per cent of coronavirus patients in Beijing had been given traditional medicines and 92 per cent of those had shown improvement.

Wang Xianbo, director of the integrative medicine department at Beijing Ditan Hospital, said 90 per cent of the confirmed coronavirus cases at his hospital were receiving traditional Chinese medicine as part of their treatment.

The efficacy rate of TCM was 87.5 per cent and the figure rose to 92.3 per cent with the addition of Western drugs, he said.

However, a doctor in Guangzhou, the capital of south China’s Guangdong province, said people should not overstate the effectiveness of traditional Chinese remedies.

“Those patients would have recovered even if they hadn’t taken the Chinese medicine,” he said. “After all, 80 per cent of them had relatively mild symptoms.”

The doctor, who declined to give his name due to the sensitivity of the issue, also questioned why so many patients were being treated with TCM.

“At least in my hospital, I would not want so many patients to take TCM, because if they do we can’t observe the effectiveness of the Western medicines,” he said.

A surgeon from the city of Shenzhen in Guangdong, who also declined to give his name, said that regardless of the treatments they used, doctors must always be scientific in their approach.

“Science is the foundation of medicine and science needs to be verifiable,” he said.

“No matter what kind of medicine, it’s irresponsible to use them on patients before verifying their effectiveness and safety.”

Is Sunflower Oil Healthy?

Is Sunflower Oil Healthy?

Sunflower oil is made by pressing the seeds of the Helianthus annuus plant.

It’s often touted as a healthy oil, as it contains unsaturated fats that may benefit heart health.

However, any potential benefits of sunflower oil depend on the type and nutrient composition. What’s more, using too much sunflower oil may harm your health.

This article highlights the different types of sunflower oil, their potential benefits and downsides, and how they compare with other common cooking oils.

There are four types of sunflower oil available in the United States, all of which are made from sunflower seeds that are bred to produce different fatty acid compositions.

These include high linoleic (68% linoleic acid), mid-oleic (NuSun, 65% oleic acid), high oleic (82% oleic acid), and high stearic/high oleic (Nutrisun, 72% oleic acid, 18% stearic acid) (1).

As their names suggest, some sunflower oils are higher in either linoleic or oleic acid.

Linoleic acid, commonly known as omega-6, is a polyunsaturated fatty acid that has two double bonds in its carbon chain. Meanwhile, oleic acid, or omega-9, is a monounsaturated fatty acid with one double bond. These properties make them liquid at room temperature (2Trusted Source).

Linoleic and oleic acid are both sources of energy for the body and contribute to cell and tissue strength (3Trusted Source4Trusted Source).

However, they react in different ways to heat during cooking and therefore may have varying effects on your health (5Trusted Source).

High stearic/high oleic sunflower oil (Nutrisun) also contains stearic acid, a saturated fatty acid that’s solid at room temperature and has different culinary applications (6).

This type of sunflower oil is not meant for home cooking and instead may be used in packaged foods, ice creams, chocolate, and industrial frying (7).

Integrative Health Solutions

The aim of The Hijama Clinic at Al Ihsaan Health is to bring back the natural healing ability of the human body and support this healing process with wisdom.

Modern Medicine aims not to support the body’s own healing ability but to bypass or replace it, this is the meaning of allopathy and it is the foundation of modern medicine. Modern medicine seeks to replace, control, suppress or eliminate body cells, tissues, organs and processes if they are not functioning properly instead of seeking to assist, support, balance or repair body cells, tissues, organs and processes that can result in the healing of the patient.

The fundamental differences between Islamic Medicine and Allopathic medicine (Modern Medicine):

Islamic Medicine seeks to use invasive and strong medications only as a last resort.

First we use safe, simple remedies and lifestyle advice, we take the time to understand what is causing the illness and we take the time to advise the patient of this.

The second is that we believe in creation, not evolution so we understand that every aspect of the body has been created in what Allah Himself refers to as ahsani taqweem, we therefore are reluctant to just remove or cut things from the body with the premise that it will cause no harm, except in the case where there are no alternatives.

The third is that we believe that Allah has created the body with the innate ability to heal itself, so we work to support this function, not to replace it. A confirmation of this is that when a person is sick they will incline to that which is useful for their health. This is the reason that we find the Nabi of Allah (SAW) has said to this effect that give the patient what food they ask for. We know that foods have a certain taste and function and a person will incline towards that taste or that food which has the function of healing their present illness provided that the food or taste is in itself healthy.

The aim of Islamic Medicine is to take the good and use it to the benefit of mankind. The Nabi (SAW) has said in a hadeeth to this effect that a Muslim takes wisdom from wherever he finds it so the principle of taking the good and what is in conformance with nature from what is available to us in western medicine or any other system for that matter applies here as well.

For this reason we adopt and encourage the aspects of allopathic medicine that are effective especially in the case of serious infection, life threatening injuries, cases of chronic degenerative disease that have gone past the point where it can be reversed with natural medicines and cases where surgery is the only option

The best practitioner will always be the one who makes the most duaa for their patients. By doing this you are admitting to Allah that you cannot cure, you are admitting that Allah is the One who cures. Because of this fikr (concern) and duaa Allah will grant cure to the patient Insha'Allah. At Al Ihsaan Health we hold firmly on these principles.

A good night’s rest is something many people dream about in our sleep-deprived 24/7 modern lives.

Now, academics have explained for the first time the mystery of why it is so replenishing to be out like a light – a good night’s sleep can prepare us for the rigours of daily life.

Biologists at the University of Manchester have studied mice to show how the diurnal rhythm, or body clock, can boost the ability to maintain important cell structures during the day. It is hoped the study could one day help unlock some of the mysteries of ageing.

Professor Karl Kadler, lead author of a report published in Nature Cell Biology, said: “Knowing this could have implications on understanding our biology at its most fundamental level. It might give us some deeper insight into how wounds heal, or how we age.”

The university’s discovery throws a light on the body’s extracellular matrix, which provides structural and biochemical support to cells in the form of connective tissue such as bone, skin, tendon and cartilage.

The researchers have discovered the body has two types of ­fibrils – rope-like structures of collagen that are woven by the cells to form tissues.

Thicker fibrils are permanent and stay with us throughout our lives, unchanged from the age of 17. But thinner fibrils break as the body is subjected to the rigours of the day and replenishing when we get a good rest at night.

“It’s intuitive to think our matrix should be worn down by wear and tear, but it isn’t and now we know why. Our body clock makes an element which can be replenished,” Professor Kadler said.

Sleep patterns

Researchers at the same ­university found last year that blue light might not be as disruptive to sleep patterns as previously thought and using cooler lighting in the evening and bright warmer lights in the day may be more beneficial.

“Collagen provides the body with structure and is our most abundant protein, ensuring the integrity, elasticity and strength of the body’s connective tissue,” Professor Kadler said.


“It’s intuitive to think our matrix should be worn down by wear and tear, but it isn’t and now we know why. Our body clock makes an element which can be replenished.”

Joint Pain

Many people suffer from joint pain. It affects your ability to work and prevents you from doing tasks that you were capable of doing before. Causes of joint pain are due to injury, arthritis, gout, age related or other disease. It is important to find out what is the cause of your pain so you can treat it properly. Consult your doctor or health advisor before taking any medication or home remedy. Al Ihsaan provides this service. Call 07384811018 for advice.

Your heart rate is relatively simple to measure, but most people don’t know how to interpret this health statistic once they’ve determined it. Learning how to find and interpret your heart rate can reveal some fascinating clues about what’s going on inside your body. Measuring your heart rate takes only a minute: You simply find your pulse (most easily located on your neck or the inside of your wrist) and set a timer for 60 seconds. Count the number of times you feel a beat during that minute. That number is your heart rate, which is measured in beats per minute (BPM).

Your heart rate is always in flux. You’ve probably felt it increase when you’ve walked up a flight of stairs or in a stressful moment. It can change for any number of reasons — but there are two useful markers for measurement. Your resting heart rate is your heart rate when you are completely at rest, such as when you are sleeping or lying down (according to the American Heart Association, it should be somewhere between 60 and 100 beats per minute). Your maximal heart rate is your heart rate when you are at your highest possible level of physical effort during exercise. Both of these markers can reveal fascinating clues about your heart.

Of course, you should not use this information to self-diagnose or make any radical lifestyle changes without first talking to a medical professional. And you should always consult your doctor before prescribing yourself any medical advice. That being said, click through the slideshow above for some interesting facts your heart rate can tell you about your health.
