Bloodletting, as we know it from the work of Hildegard von Bingen (1098-1179), is based on the lunar calendar and on the patient's personal biorhythm. It is performed under fasting conditions.
During the bloodletting process, the blood is usually taken from the elbow using a venous needle and must be able to flow freely. The amount is determined during a detailed medical history consultation and diagnosis.
This treatment method eliminates pathogenic substances, stimulates the formation of blood cells, relieves the cardiovascular system, regulates and strengthens the immune system, increases vitality and the body's productive capacities, to name a few effects. It is possible to perform bloodletting twice per year on someone between 30 and 50 years of age. After that, women up to 100 years of age and men up to 80 years of age can receive this treatment once per year.
Hildegard von Bingen recommended this treatment method for chronic diseases, circulatory disorders, high blood pressure, stroke prevention, and much more.
