Biopuncture is a therapy that describes the use of biotherapeutics for injection into specific points to support bioregulation. This is done on the basis of conventional and functional diagnosis. Bioregulation is the regulation of biological processes. It is a process within the human biological system, resulting from internal adaptive mechanisms that continuously adjust the systems response to internal or external stimuli. The goal of bioregulation is to maintain homeostasis.
Bioregulation is achieved by providing a stimulus by way of a local injection. This will evoke a physiological reaction in the patient. The purpose of this reaction is to facilitate a positive clinical response of the body
What is injected?
Biotherapeutic agents are medical products that do not suppress the neuro-immunological reactions of the body. They also do not cause interference with the normal physiological defense mechanism of the body. Biotherapeutic medicines regulate onflammatory processes and support the body’s natural healing mechanisms.
Specific sites of injection
The site of injection is tailored to each presenting case. They are injected into specific zones or points on the body. They are injected into the specific area affected (pain zone) or in reflex zones or trigger points. The injections are usually given under the skin or into the muscle or soft tissue. There are usually multiple injection sites. This clinical effect is created due to the needle effect, the medication stimulating the receprots in the space around the cells and due to segmental effect (such as acupuncture). A few clinical sessions is needed to obtain optimal results.
What is it used for?
Orthopedic problems such as
- neck pain
- back pain
- acute sports injuries
- chronic tennis or golf elbow
Functional disorders such as:
- hay fever
Biopuncture as a bridge between Mainstream medicine and Natural medicine
- Biopuncture uses conventional diagnosis
- Most of the products used are tested for safety and reliability
- The biopuncture technique is performed following the rules of orthodox medicine
- Biopuncture show no major side effects
- These injections stimulate natural healing instead of suppressing symptoms
Questions and AnswersHow does Biopuncture work to help with pain or inflammations?
In conventional medicine, the drug you take suppresses your symptoms immediately. That is why you need to take high doses of chemical substances in order to suppress, for example, pain or inflammation. And usually it works immediately. But as soon as the medication stops working, you have to take another pill to stop the pain.
However, in Biopuncture small doses of products are injected in order to stimulate the natural healing processes. These ultra-low doses “wake up” mechanisms which are available anyway. So, the healing effect comes from “inside” your body — not from the products themselves. It’s the reaction of your immune system, which will produce the proper reactions to regain natural healing. The reaction of your body may be, for example, better local blood circulation, tissue repair, relaxation of muscles or local detoxification.
Will Biopuncture help me as quickly as conventional therapies?
It’s obvious that injections of such tiny doses are less powerful than, for example, cortisone injections. The dose used is too small to suppress the inflammation immediately. But that’s not the goal of Biopuncture! Inflammation is considered to be an important element of true and lasting healing. The goal of Biopuncture is to support the natural inflammatory processes in order to promote a complete and natural healing of the injured tissues.
When should I consider Biopuncture?
Biopuncture is very successful in treating sports injuries, pain problems and osteoarthritis. Some common indications for Biopuncture include: neck, back and sacro-iliac pain; tennis and golfer’s elbow; shoulder pain; knee pain and tension headaches. It can be used in allergies and inflammation treating sinusitis, hayfever and eczema. The use of biotherapeutic injections can benefit patients who have tried conventional medicine but with no success, or for those that cannot take conventional medication because of side effects. It can also be combined with conventional treatment. Each case should be assessed individually.
