Tonight I saw a BBC TV news program on the effective use of leeches to control pain for those suffering from osteoarthritis. Has anyone in Britain used this form of pain relief? I tried their website but couldn't find today's news, only older material. The news was also that the saliva of leeches was good for pain & that a compnay in the US would soon be testing the leeches. The thought gives me the creeps, but so does pain. Best thoughts to all.
