Biopuncture & B 12 Injections

Biopuncture is based on principles originating from acupuncture, homeopathy and myofascial trigger point therapy. It involves injecting the homeopathic medicine Traumeel into acupuncture or  trigger points. By combining these therapies it can help with difficult conditions that haven't responded to regular treatment. I often use Traumeel which is a homeopathic analgesic that is used to relieve pain. It can be helpful for stubborn tendonitis and painful trigger points. It is also very effective in treating neuromas in the feet.

B12 Injections can be helpful for fatique, insomnia, menopausal hot flashes and depression. B12 helps maintain healthy nerves and can help in some cases of nerve pain and neuropathy. Although B12 is found in meat, dairy, eggs and fortified foods it can be difficult to absorb in people with certain digestive imbalances. One cause is low hydrochloric acid in the stomach. This is common among the elderly and with those taking acid blocking medications. The form of B12 that I use is methylcolbalamin. It is the form of B12 found in nature and is more easily absorbed. Cyanocolbalamin is the synthetic form of B12.

The needles that I use for both biopuncture and B12 Injections are thin and most people are surprised at how little, if any, discomfort they feel during these procedures.
