The sciatic nerve, the largest nerve in the body, when inflamed sends shooting, hot, electric pain down the leg–sciatica. It is aggravated by humid, heavy weather which makes joints swell and pinches nerves. A rich diet (cheese, grains, meats, alcohol or food allergies), springtime humidity and sedentary habits make it feel worse. Here is a complete, successful treatment of sciatica with Acupuncture by Dr. Lili Wu who is located in Brooklyn and in Manhattan at 420 West 24th street #1D. Phone: 212 741 6674.

Spring 2014 I began having leech therapy treatments by Andrew Plucinski of SilesianHolisticCenter in Greenpoint Brooklyn, NYC. Phone 646 460 4212. The treatment protocol began with detox treatments for liver, pancreas, kidney, nervous system, heart and this treatment shown in 2 videos is for brain and emotional health. The treatment can benefit people who suffer from hypertension, migraine, nervous anxiety, depression, poor memory, and mood swings. It involves placing 2 live leeches on the bone behind each ear. The leeches exude saliva containing many beneficial enzymes that thin the blood, kill infection and enhance blood pressure and circulation, reduce pain and release endorphins to enhance mood. https://www.dropbox.com/s/wxv3q7xhf32ku8c/2014-05-01%2015.44.20.mov https://www.dropbox.com/s/igq2oxlqvg8trki/2014-05-01%2015.56.05.mov
The following three videos explain and illustrate leech therapy for heart health, a treatment that may be used for infections, cholesterol problems, irregular heartbeat, chest pain, hypertension, and poor circulation indicated by cold hands and feet. Over time this approach may help you avoid drugs and surgery. For the heart treatment, four live leeches are placed over the large blood vessels most likely to clog with plaque. All such treatments include a liver cleansing session by placing several leeches over the liver our major detox organ then followed a week later by placing leeches over the heart area. This may be repeated several times. There are no harmful drug side-effects. After the treatment toxic lymph fluid oozes out of the tiny bite area for up to 12 hours.

The liver is one of our main detox organs. According to traditional Chinese medicine it “makes and stores” blood. Certainly liver enzymes are vital for heart and circulation health and well-being. Keeping the liver and blood clean can help prevent chronic pain (arthritis, migraine etc) from acidity and toxins. It can improve complexion and mood. Leech saliva contains valuable enzymes to detoxify and tone internal organs, reduce blood poisons, clotting, harmful cholesterol and reduce many other chronic problems. Leech therapy was popular before antibiotic drugs and has made a comeback during surgery in modern hospitals. This video shows my second liver treatment at SilesianHolisticCenter in Greenpoint Brooklyn with Andrew Plucinski. Phone 646 460 4212 https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=H9lxW6uZGfg
Hypertension, gout, low back pain, stones — all sorts of problems develop over time when the kidneys cannot eliminate acids, toxins and medicines. Stress, poor diet, pollution, and overwork all weaken the kidneys. Leech treatment detoxifies the body in order to bring organ functioning up to optimal levels. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ID0LTKMjphs Andrew Plucinski www.SilesianHolisticCenter.com explains leech treatment for kidneys
Leech therapy uses the saliva of live leeches placed on the body to regulate under-functioning organs, detoxify the body, reduce pain, and build immunity. It can unblock blood vessels troubled by plaque, reduce arthritis pain, migraine and many other illnesses. This treatment for pancreas is useful for diabetes and weight loss. It may also improve cravings for sweets which underlie blood sugar problems, cloudy thinking, depression, and anxiety. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=bk1LTJVsG4Q My leech treatments have been very successful and I will continue. So far I have had two detox treatments for the liver, one for my neck, one for pancreas. After the first liver treatment, I felt calmer and had less overall chronic pain. The surprising treatment was for the back of my neck – it reached to my carpal tunnel and relieved it completely for several days. My neck felt supple, I could move it more than I could in years. Chiropractors have been afraid to adjust my neck due to bone spurs near the spine. But now it moves, feels wonderful and carpal tunnel is 70 – 80% gone without surgery. Today’s treatment for spleen is too soon to tell. I feel calm, happy, encouraged to continue. Andrew Plucinski is a pleasure to work with. He is patient, informative, professional and expert. Continuum Center for Health and Healing in Chelsea used to give leech treatments for arthritis of the knee at $600 per treatment !! (no insurance accepted) with good results lasting for 6 months. But they gave it up because according to the therapist, it required followup. That means you have to be willing to change your own bandages – I ooze for 12 hours or so lymph fluid after treatments. That is the point – in the lymph are poisons leaving the body. So there is mess involved, time and a little money – nothing like a medical treatment price. Andrew charges $40 per leech and the number varies, often 4 at a time, according to the treatment. I recommend the treatment along with a detox diet for yearly spring detox. The rewards are countless.
