Covid Vax: Researchers Feel Suctioning Technique May Provide Better Results & More Protection Than Needles
COVID-19 has literally turned our lives upside down in the past couple of years as it affected each aspect of our lives whether it was related to health or it was emotional or financial. While many of us lost our loved ones to this disease, there are many who lost their jobs and livelihood but we have to appreciate the efforts of the medical and scientific researchers who came up with a vaccine for this disease in a very short period. The vaccination drive is also going at a good pace all over the world and now a research team has come up with a suggestion for making vaccination more effective.
1The traditional method of vaccination
In the present times, the vaccination is being done using traditional method of injecting vaccine in the arm but the researchers from the Rutgers University, New Jersey claimed that with traditional method, the vaccine doesn’t get absorbed by the cells automatically and some of it gets deteriorate even before it reaches the cells.
2The new technique
The researchers have advised the use of suction technique in order to make vaccination more effective as it will create more anti-bodies which will increase the level of antibodies in the body and the person who has got vaccinated will be shielded in a better manner.
3Suction technique is based on cupping therapy
The cupping therapy is an ancient therapy in which a therapist creates local suction by applying heated cups on the skin of the patient. Though cupping therapy is mainly used in Asia but it also getting popular in Latin America, Middle East and Eastern Europe.
4The findings of the study
The research findings of the study have been published in the journal Science Advances which states that if suction is provided just after the shot then a strain is created on the skin which compels the cells to absorb the vaccine automatically.
