Biopuncture


Biopuncture has sure been in the news lately!  Dr Oz did a segment on this pain treatment in early April and we are getting calls from all over the country.

Biopuncture is the injection of tiny amount of natural medicines into trigger point or other areas in the body and can allieveate body pains from injuries to arthritis.

Many people are amazed at how quickly their bodies respond and become pain free even after years of dealing with the pain.

The principles of Biopuncture are different than pain drugs.  Pain drugs suppress your symptoms. That is why you need to take high doses of these chemicals in order to continue to suppress symptoms like pain or inflammation. But as soon as the medication stops working, you have to take another pill to “kill the pain” again.

In Biopuncture/Neural Therapy, small doses of natural products are injected in order to stimulate the natural healing processes. These ultra-low doses “wake up” mechanisms which are already available in your body. So, the healing effect comes from “inside” your body — not from the products themselves. This natural wisdom in your body is called the Vital Force and it is what keeps you alive.  We detoxify to remove the stored waste of chronic pain and then you can be pain free.  The reaction of your body may be, for example, better local blood circulation, tissue repair, relaxation of muscles or local detoxification.
