My mom been diagnosed with cancer stage 4... She's been for chemotherapy and there has not been any improvement. Since last week's post about hijjama, i've read a lot about it but did not find anything about cancer... Plz advise if it's a wise decision to go for cupping? She's also suffering from kidney stones.. Any advice is much appreciated.

I've been doing a lot of research on cancer and the use of cupping in this condition as it is becoming more and more prevalent. However, I haven't found anything conclusive. We were taught not to perform cupping on cancer patients as the vacuum action can move cells and cause the spread of cancer. But Hakim Chisti's book advocates the use of cupping in cancer as this was a common practice by the pioneer physicians like Ibn Sina.

For kidney stones i prescribed Tibb renotone and calcury tablets. Dischem has renotone, however calcury is a practitioner range product so you'll have to get it directly from a Tibb practitioner.

My husband suffers from severe headaches. The Doctor said it is most probably due to tension. Please assist with the best places and people to go to for cupping as I'm extremely worried about my husband. It gets so bad at times and there is just nothing I can do to help. No medication has helped either. Please help urgently. thanks

Please visit www.satibb.co.za. Click on the link unani-tibb practitioners, choose kzn and that will tell you which practitioners are closest

If it's tension headaches then regular cupping will do wonders

For long term relief i would advise that your husband strengthens his back and stomach muscles as poor posture also contributes to chronic headaches. He should try pilates. this will teach him how to stretch and strengthen the muscles that's causing the headaches

if the tension is due to stress, then in addition to cupping he can use tibb stress away tablets

another cause of headaches is dehydration, so he should drink lots of water. during ramadaan he should try to stay away from sugary drinks because this also contributes towards dehydration
