Biopuncture is a 20+-year-old natural injection technique, developed originally in Belgium under the direction of Dr. Jan Kersschot, MD, that utilizes homeopathic medicines as catalysts for healing. One of the most popular homeopathic medicines used is the ointment, Traumeel. Sold in health food stores, as well as mainstream stores such as Walgreens, this topical medicine is exceptionally effective for acute and chronic sprain and strain injuries of the muscles and ligaments. Traumeel is only one of many homeopathic medicines that are available in injectable form. As an injectable, this powerful medicine can be brought to the exact internal site of injury, which is far more effective than when used as a topical ointment or in pill or oral form.
Biopuncture is a technique that bioregulates the body’s immune system, meaning that it heals the injury by enabling and enhancing the mechanisms that control inflammation, pain, and tissue regeneration. Biopuncture traditionally uses small needles to inject substances subcutaneously (just under the skin). On occasion, a deeper injection is required. In a single session, single or multiple injections may be necessary to cover the injured area. Typically, two to five sessions are necessary to substantially reduce pain and inflammation and, in most cases, completely eliminate it. Substances typically used in Biopuncture are homeopathic medicines, lidocaine or procaine (analgesics), sarapin (a natural pain reliever), and dextrose (an immune stimulant). The exact quantities and qualities, as well as sites of delivery, are determined by Dr. Perlstein on a case by case and visit by visit basis.
Biopuncture is not only effective for sprain and strain injuries, both new and old, or pain at various joints or parts of the body of indeterminate origin, but is also remarkably effective for the following conditions:
