Apheresis: A Modern Form of Blood Letting

As a child I remember visiting an elderly woman who lived across the street. It was not uncommon for her to be sitting in her chair next to the sink with leeches on her tumored arms. In fact, the use of leeches in some places is still used to clean the blood.

But now there is a more modern way “of getting the lead out” not to mention the Lyme, bacteria, viruses and other heavy metals.

The clinic that does apheresis is near Munich. You can read about it here.
