There is a health tip that has been shared around the Internet that is not only incorrect, but it can also lead to serious negative consequences on our health. This “tip” suggests that pricking the earlobes and fingers of a person who is experiencing a stroke with a regular needle in order to release some blood can actually save the sufferer’s life and even result in immediate recovery.
As we said, this suggestion is completely wrong and harmful. The release of blood that we have mentioned before will not provide any positive results for the stroke sufferer and it has the potential to make the situation more difficult. It is good to point out that no scientific research has confirmed the claims in the health tip and method described before.
In addition, the suggestion that the victim of a stroke will recover instantly and that there is no need to visit a hospital and a doctor is completely foolish and can result in death or serious injuries because of lack of adequate medical treatment.
Description of the dangerous method
People usually get an email or read an article allegedly written by some Chinese professor and the article/message has a title that goes something like this – a simple needle can save the life of a stroke sufferer. The following is a description of the method. Keep in mind that this method is ineffective and potentially harmful, so don’t do it!
Always have a needle or syringe in your household. This is a very effective and unconventional method used for fast stroke recovery.
Read this description carefully and you will be able to save someone’s life. This method is incredible. Please, read this and you will be amazed from the results. Great tips. Take a break and read these instructions.
My mother was partially paralyzed and soon after that died because of a stroke. If only I have known the basic instructions found here. In cases of a stroke, don’t panic. In case stroke occurs, the capillaries found in the brain will slowly break.
It doesn’t really matter where the person is experiencing a stroke, don’t move them. If you move them you will worsen the situation. Just make sure that the sufferer is in a sitting position in order to protect them from falling again and start the blood letting procedure. In case you have a syringe in your home this would be the best option. Of course, a simple pin or sewing needle can get the job done too.
- Put the needle over a source of heat (fire from a lighter) for sterilization and start pricking all ten fingers.
- Prick about one millimeter from each fingernail – you don’t have to look for some special points.
- Prick only until you see blood coming out.
- In case there is no bleeding, use your own fingers to squeeze the blood.
- Once all ten fingers start bleeding, wait for a couple of minutes and the sufferer will become conscious again.
- In case the sufferer has a crooked mouth, pull their ears until they become red.
- After that, prick both earlobes two times until you notice two drops of blood.
The sufferer should become conscious in a few minutes. After that, wait until the sufferer becomes fully aware and fully functional and drive them to the nearest healthcare facility. In case they were taken in the ambulance, the trip will damage the capillaries in the brain.
According to Ha Bu Ting, a person who lives in Sun Juke in China, he learnt this technique from a famous traditional doctor from China. On top of that, he has practiced this technique a few times and it always worked.
About 30 years ago he was reaching in Tai Chung in Fung Gaap College when one day a colleague of his entered the classroom and informed him that the supervisor had a stroke. When he arrived at the scene he was shocked. The supervisor was pale, he could barely talk and he had a crooked mouth. These are the basic symptoms of a stroke.
Ha Bu Ting asked the students to find a syringe and pricked all of the supervisor’s fingers. Once the blood letting started, the supervisor regained his consciousness and he felt better. However, the mouth remained crooked, so Ting pulled his ears until they became red and pricked the earlobes two times. After 5 minutes, the supervisor was as good as new.
They have let the sufferer to take a break and made him hot tea and after a while they took him to the local hospital. After 24 hours he was released without any problem. He was fully functioning once again. There were no side effects.
It is good to know that victims of a stroke typically experience bursting of the capillaries in the brain when they go to the hospital. That’s why they can never fully recover. Stroke is a very common cause of death. Most of those who survive are paralyzed. This is a very difficult situation. In case we all practice this blood letting technique when someone experiences a stroke, we could save many lives.
So, you now know how this message looks like. The potentially dangerous message has been shared through emails, blogs and social media for more than ten years. According to this message, saving a stroke victim is very simple and you just need to prick their fingers with a needle. In addition, in case they have a crooked mouth, you should also prick their earlobes. This blood letting method should protect the brain capillaries. In addition, the message says that you should wait until the sufferer feels completely normal before visiting a hospital.
The truth is that this message is completely wrong and is not supported by any medical evidence. As a matter of fact, the ridiculous claims in this message have a potential to cause additional problems because victims of a stroke need immediate medical attention.
