Lighthouse Natural Medicine offers Biopuncture as an alternative treatment for neck and back pain as well as shoulder, knee, Achilles tendon, tennis elbow and golf elbow. However, this therapy can be used for the treatment of allergies and inflammations such as hay fever or bronchitis. Some experienced physicians have also used Biopuncture for the relief of migraines, tension headaches, and pseudosciatica.
Since Biopuncture isn’t a well-known treatment in the world of conventional medicine, people often have questions about what it is and how it is performed. Some often wonder if it is as safe and effective as conventional therapies involving pharmaceuticals and surgery. In a recent article, by Dr. Jan Kersschot, a graduated of medicine from Antwerp University, Belgium and an author on many books regarding the subject, he addresses some of these questions and more.
According to Kersschot, Biopuncture is a therapy whereby specific locations are injected with biological products. Many of which are derived from plants. Most of these injections are given into the skin or muscles. Some of the products used by Biopunturists include arnica, echinacea, nux vomica and chamomile.
Arnica is used for muscle pain, nux vomica is injected for digestive problems, echinacea is used to increase the natural defense system of the body.
Since the injected products usually contain diluted botanical products, they do not contain high concentrations of active substances. Combined with the fact that most of the products are produced in Germany, where their production is highly regulated, these products are completely safe and free from toxic side effects. When performed, according to the latest technical standards, by a trained medical professional, it is absolutely safe. There has been thousands of clinical studies proving their safety.
Biopuncture basically stimulates your immune system to restart its healing capabilities. Unlike traditional medicine that may relieve pain immediately or remove symptoms, Biopuncture serves to heal the body of the root cause. With conventional medicine, your body builds up a tolerance to the treatment and therefore you may have to continue increasing dosages to achieve the desired outcome. With Biopuncture you may not see immediate results or may actually feel worse after the first injection, however your body is already starting to heal itself. The reaction of Biopuncture causes better blood circulation, tissue repair and muscle relaxation. All of these processes take more time but have a more lasting effect.
Biopuncture can benefit patients who have tried conventional medicine but without success or had side effects that make traditional methods not an option. Some patients have used this therapy as an alternative to surgery but sometimes it makes sense to combine traditional methods with Biopuncture to promote overall pain relief.
Biopuncture is not a cure all and sometimes it is not appropriate. For example, it cannot heal cancer, diabetes or AIDS. Nor can it help depression, fibromyalgia, varicose veins, Parkinson or epilepsy. It is important to seek a diagnose and a treatment plan from an accredited physician before embarking on any sort of treatment.
