BiopunctureLondon Natural Therapies
Biopuncture is a therapy whereby specific body locations (acupuncture points, trigger points, reflex areas etc.) are injected with biologically active substances.
It can be understood as a combination of acupuncture and homeopathy – enhancing the efficacy of both and making the combination treatment more powerful and effective.
Biopuncture is mainly used to treat pain, inflammation, swelling and toxin accumulation. It is excellent for musculo-skeletal problems (due to injuries, bad posture etc), to treat organ dysfunction and to facilitate detoxification and stimulate self-healing processes on deeper levels for any chronic and degenerative conditions.
It can also help to modulate the immune system in auto-immune disorders. The advantage of injections is that the absorption rate is 100%, the delivery to target tissues is fast, precise and there is a depot effect, i.e. the remedies are released slowly over several days into the tissue, which creates a more long-term response and action of the remedies over several days.
This is contrary to oral uptake, where a big part is lost due to suboptimal digestion and excretion of the remedies usually takes place within several hours – meaning their therapeutic effect is lost.
Biopuncture is especially indicated in the following conditions:
- Musculo-skeletal pain/injuries (swollen ankle, whiplash, knee pain etc)
- Digestive problems (bloating, constipation, diarrhoea, spasm)
- To stimulate liver – and lymphatic detoxification
- Kidney problems and to treat the whole urinary system
- Weak immunity, recurrent colds/flus
- Female/male reproductive conditions, infertility
- Asthma, tinnitus, high blood pressure
- Diabetes, obesity
- Eczema, psoriasis, acne and other skin conditions
The remedies that are used are 100% natural and mainly from the German company HEEL – the global leader in the field of scientifically based modern homeopathy. Their remedies like Traumeel are well researched and their benefits especially for reduction of pain and inflammation have been proven in multiple studies Traumeel Research
The injections are given superficially, so there is minimal pain and discomfort with fast results and improvements starting from the very first session. I often combine the treatment with a preceding acupuncture session in order to balance the body better and stimulate its self-healing abilities more strongly.
I have been suffering from rheumatoid arthritis for many years. Even though I was taking prescription drugs, my condition seemed to get worse, and I noticed more generalised pain and stiffness, while at the same time I was worried about the side effects of long term use of medications.
I had heard from a friend that acupuncture could help me with pain and inflammation – so I booked in with Katrin for acupuncture and Biopuncture treatments. I was a bit worried about the idea of getting injections at first, but Katrin explained to me what it was for and where exactly she was going to inject, so I felt more at ease. To my absolute amazement, already after the first session I felt a marked improvement. The pain and inflammation was reduced, especially the early morning stiffness, also I felt overall more energy and my mood was much better also! I continued to go for weekly sessions and I kept feeling better.
My joint pain is almost gone now, I was able to come off the prescription drugs, my energy is great – I have started to go for runs and to the gym again regularly, which I could not do for years! I feel much better in myself, more balanced and happy, I have changed my eating pattern and diet too – with Katrin’s help, and that made a big difference too! Would highly recommend this kind of treatment to anyone suffering from a similar condition!
