What is Biopuncture? I get that question frequently. Many people don’t seem to know about this hidden treasure for pain relief and really a multitude of many uncomfortable symptoms.
A syringe full of a simple more natural substance may not sound like a cutting-edge medical technique, but a growing number of doctors say biopuncture can stimulate healing and provide relief from a range of chronic conditions. In fact it is just really being discovered in the U.S. but it is very popular in Europe. Even Dr. Oz had an episode about it, calling it a alternative pain cure! The great thing about Biopuncture is how versatile it is as a treatment option.
Biopuncture is an injection therapy in which specific body zones or points are injected with highly dilute natural products in order to regulate inflammatory processes and support natural repair mechanisms. Most of these injections are given under the skin or into the muscles. Biopuncture is an injection technique which uses a low dose of FDA-approved substances, mostly plant derived. The substances are used to help treat pain in the muscles, tendons and ligaments through injections into the muscle surrounding the injured, irritated or inflamed area.
What kinds of products are being injected?
Products commonly used in Biopuncture are homeopathics and vitamin substances, for example, arnica, echinacea, nux vomica, and B-12. Arnica is used for muscle pain, nux vomica is injected for digestive problems, and echinacea is used to increase the natural defense system of the body. Biopuncturists always inject cocktails of natural products. Traumeel, for example, is used for inflammations and sports injuries, Zeel is used for chronic joint pain, and Spascupreel is used for muscular cramps and Lymphomyosot for lymphatic drainage. Hundreds of different cocktails are available these days.
Clinical studies on thousands of patients have confirmed the safety of these products, and patients hardly ever experience negative side effects from Biopuncture, because the injections don’t contain high concentrations of active substances. Only a small amount of diluted materials are used to gain the desired effect. As a result, toxic side effects are very unlikely.
The actual products used will depend on the individual being treated. These products essentially stimulate the body’s immune system to employ its own natural healing processes in the area that is injected. The treatment works with the body to actually reduce toxic buildup in the area and initiate lasting healing, instead of simply blocking a pain response.
