A safe and effective medical therapy that helps stimulate your body’s natural healing process, biopuncture has been relied upon in Europe and America for centuries to treat a myriad of conditions. While the practice is still relatively new to South Africa, Health Renewal has been offering it with great success for years.

Better than your average

In many ways, biopuncture is a little bit like homeopathy meets mesotherapy as it involves injecting incredibly diluted ‘micro doses’ of plant extracts and minerals deep into the muscle where it’s absorbed into the blood stream. While it sounds painful, it wouldn’t feel any different to a quick vitamin B injection and, just one shot, can have an incredibly beneficial effect on the entire body, not just the site of the injection.

Often, conventional medicine involves using an incredibly strong mix of medications in a bid to suppress a symptom or dull the pain. Unfortunately, as this ‘fix’ doesn’t get to the root of the problem, it’s only ever a short term solution and the drugs used often result in their own unwanted side effects. Here, biopuncture has the edge because it requires just a few tiny, naturally-derived doses that kick start your body’s healing mechanism. Essentially, the ‘cure’ it stimulates is you, so you don’t have to worry about any negative effects.

A real multi-tasker

Natural healing benefits aside, biopuncture can also reduce inflammation and improve your immune system to help you fend off future aggressors like viruses and infections. This makes it useful in treating a long list of conditions, that range from diseases like diabetes and arthritis as well as conditions like acne or eczema and even the common cold.

Biopuncture is also useful when it comes to managing pain. For example, you can opt for ‘treatment zone’ or ‘local’ injections that target specific areas, like a sprained ankle or a strained lower back. Several painful conditions, things like migraine and fibromyalgia, have been shown to improve with biopuncture.

Choose your weapons

Currently, over one hundred million injectable phyto and mineral cocktail vials are used per year in Europe and America alone. Each ‘blend’ is designed to treat specific problems. To give you a few examples, Traumeel tackles inflammation, making it great for strains and sprains; Tonic-Injeel is useful to anyone suffering from chronic fatigue and even student’s prepping for exams as it increases mental capacity and Grip Heel, if taken at the first sign of flu, can improve your symptoms within three days by boosting your immune system.

These are but just a few of the many preparations offered at Health Renewal so, if you’re interested, make an appointment with one of their highly-skilled doctors who can recommend the biopuncture cocktail that’s right for you.
