Biopuncture is a therapy consisting of:
• Stimulating the body by putting a sterile saline solution (which is exactly the same as the bodies fluid composition) under the skin.
• This stimulates deeper organ systems known as a cutivisceral reflex arc. Oral homeopathic medicines are given simultaneously which focus upon the organ or tissue requiring treatment.
Over 70 million Biomesotherapy treatments take place in Europe each year. It is a popular form of natural medicine. Biomesotherapy offers an excellent safety profile; studies show that it is as safe as oral homoeopathics.
Examples of dilutednatural medicines commonly used in Biopuncture are Traumeel and Zeel ampoules. They contain no impurities. Stimulation of local tissue does not become contaminated with preservatives and additives.
Traumeel is used for inflammations and sports injuries. Zeel is used for tennis elbow, whiplash and arthrosis. There are hundreds of different biopuncture products available throughout Europe in clinical practice.
People are often very surprised at the ease of the treatment.
The needles are fine, like acupuncture needles, and inserted into a self-loading device called an ‘inject-ease’ device. Saline is inserted just under the skin or into specific muscle points.
Some of these points are trigger points or acupuncture points. Acupuncture points are derived from ancient Chinese medicine.
Treatment into and around joints is also common. For example, if you have elbow pain your practitioner will look for several painful spots in the arm muscles and may treat each one.
In most cases, several small treatments are given in a specific zone of the body at each session.
Practitioners of Biopuncture are using a technique that adheres to strict technical guidelines. They have a duty of care as a professional clinician. This involves using correct technique and sterile disposable material. This technique often has much less discomfort than the average acupuncture treatment.
Biopuncture uses carefully calculated diluted substances, commonly known as homoeopathic potencies. Specific healing combinations of these medicines are used for particular conditions. These medicines contain low concentrations of substances, usually of plant and mineral origin.
Many of these products have been tested in modern double blind and drug monitoring studies.
Three or more sessions may be required before results are comparable. However, many patients may receive immediate relief from pain and discomfort after their treatment.
Biomesotherapy stimulates your body’s own healing capacity. The body is encouraged to start healing itself.
Many of the products are formulated to relax muscle tension. Pain in the knee or hip region can have a muscular origin. This means it can be treated without touching the joint itself.
The practitioner can also approach the body by working on the bodies major systems including the brain and nervous system. Biopuncture aims to normalize nervous system imbalance.
Another important area of Biopuncture is detoxification. Detoxification literally means cleaning the body. Toxins that have accumulated in the body from the environment, poor diet or from medication are able to alter the immune’s defense system resulting in inflammation. Toxins can also disturb the responses of your nervous system, causing pain and discomfort. These toxins are the reason why the body may not be functioning at its optimum level. Eliminating toxins (homotoxins) is an important strategy, especially when dealing with chronic disease or pain.
Biopuncture helps eliminate toxins and normalize an imbalanced system. Some combinations of medicines are specifically designed for this purpose, and are used in conjunction with muscle point stimulation in oral preparations.
Biopuncture cannot heal all your medical problems and is not a miracle therapy.
It is up to your practitioner to decide if Biopuncture is appropriate for you. The majority of patients are treated with Biomesotherapy as an alternative for pain management.
Although there is pain relief it is important to realize that Biopuncture does not suppress the symptom as with conventional medicine. It simply reorganizes the body’s information to support a healing response.
Pain is an important warning that something is wrong in the body. The source of the pain reaction must be addressed.
More than one treatment may be necessary for initial improvement. If your pain is recent it may be treated in two or three sessions. If the pain has been present for months or even years, it may take several treatments.
After the first treatment, although rarely, it is possible you may feel a little worse. This is because the healing process is being activated but only be for a short period. Your body may have to work on the cause of the problem and, in doing so, produces some discomfort. This means that real healing is taking place.
Many practitioners use Biopuncture for minor orthopaedic problems. These include neck and back pain, ankle sprain, sciatica, frozen shoulder and achilles tendonitis. Biomesotherapy is also very successful in treating sports injuries.
This modality is often suggested for those who have tried orthodox medicine without success. Other patients experiencing medication side effects may be seeking alternatives.
In some patients it may be advantageous to combine a conventional approach together with Biopuncture. It is not necessary to stop your current pharmaceutical medication if this is prescribed by your doctor.
If in doubt, always contact your practitioner for professional advice on whether this therapy is suitable for you. Each case must be assessed individually by a trained Biopuncture practitioner.
