Our bodies have an immune system, composed of cells and tissues that make up the immunity. Immune responce is away that made the body to respond to stimulations from inside or outside the body. Changes in leucocyte and leucocyte differential count indicate a humoral and cellular immune response as a tolerance of homeostatic changes in the body. Wet cupping is a treatment efforts to restore the homeostasis of the immune system. The aim of this research to know the effect of Wet cupping (Hijamah) of body immune system in venous blood of healthy person.
