Salam,

I have read that hijama and blood lettimg was recommended by one of the immams(عليه السلام), how authentic are these narrations? 

The reason I ask this is because cupping is often seen as nonsense by the medical community and blood letting is seen as a big no no, which lead me to question if this practice has benefits or not, if so what are they?

Hijama - yes it's a sunnah. 

Blood letting - no (unless you are referring again to hijama?)

I can't find the shia chat forum but someone posted the golden book of medicine and if I remeber it was written that blood letting was recommended not just cupping(hijama)

What do you mean by blood letting? A lot of people use this term to refer to acts such as tatbir.

probably the act of puncturing a vein so the blood gushes out then the vein is closed when enough blood has been removed.

Cupping predates Islam and it was likely to be believed to be beneficial by some Muslim scholars. But it was probably mere speculation with a placebo. 

Actually it has been addressed in several narrations, so it's not merely something promoted by muslim scholars. It is a sunnah.

It depends on your nature and blood concentration. It is good for those who have a warm nature and a high blood concentration. It is better to do it in the spring (late spring) and in autumn. My husband sometimes does it. It makes him feel better and more lively.

Sometimes I wish I could debate some of you outside of the forum.

Ok this is my forum, what is it that you want to debate?

I am ready to listen to everything open minded.
