Chronic Pain, Weak Immune System, and Biopuncture Treatment
What’s holding you back Wellington? Missing out on a healthy, active lifestyle in Lake Worth? Winter months in South Florida are a bonanza of festivals, farmers markets, gardening, equestrian events and outdoor activities. If you battle chronic pain, however, you are probably not taking full advantage of the South Florida lifestyle that we are so lucky to enjoy. Make 2018 the year that you seek new solutions to that old pain in your neck, back, or hips.
Chronic Pain is Widespread
“The National Center for Health Statistics reports that approximately 4 in 10, or 75 million, Americans live with chronic pain (back pain, arthritis, joint pain, tendonitis, shoulder pain, nerve pain, overuse injuries).” When we are looking at those kind of numbers, that tells us that chronic pain afflicts more people than diabetes, heart disease/stroke and cancer combined according to American Academy of Pain Medicine. In fact, pain is the main complaint that drives patients to see their physicians in the first place. So what can we do to address this obviously widespread ailment?
The Connection Between the Immune System & Chronic Pain
Since chronic pain ailments like those listed above are typically associated with inflammation and a weakened immune system, many practitioners have turned to a technique known as Biopuncture, or Acupuncture Injection Therapy (AIT). This technique strengthens the immune system and treats inflammation locally and directly. What is Biopuncture? It is a therapy using mostly plant-based, ultra-low dilution formulas which are injected into specific body regions to relieve pain and inflammation. The majority of these are micro-injections with a very small needle just under the skin or into the muscle of the affected area. One of the benefits of directly injecting the area of pain appears to be a “turbo effect,” or a much faster healing response.
How Biopuncture Works with Your Body to Reduce Pain
Biopuncture treatment has been proven effective at stimulating the body’s own natural defenses to trigger healing and alleviate pain. For many patients, this is a welcomed alternative to taking sometimes harmful pharmaceuticals. In conventional medicine, the drug you take suppresses your symptoms, but it does not heal the ailment. That is what leads to needing to take higher and higher doses. As soon as the medication becomes ineffective at a certain dose, patients need to take another pill to “kill the pain” again, and a dangerous road is being traveled.
Alternatively, Biopuncture’s completely safe, low-dilution formulas are able to effect change with minimal dosage. There is no danger for dependency, and because it triggers healing of the affected area, the pain relief becomes longer lasting. We are proud to offer these treatments to our patients.
Using botanical homeopathic medicines, Dr. Chah has helped individuals to step back into their lives pain-free. And because this treatment can help strengthen the immune system, it has even been proving effective at mitigating flu symptoms for some patients and supporting others in avoiding developing the flu altogether. We would love to answer any questions you might have about adding Biopuncture treatments to your plan for wellness. Our office can be reached at 561-249-0447 to discuss your care plan options.
More Details and FAQ’s on Biopuncture
The two most commonly injected products are ultra-low doses (ULDs or “micro-doses”) of mainly medicinal plant and mineral-based products and/or glucose.
How is biopuncture different from acupuncture?
Biopuncture does not follow acupuncture meridians; the skilled practitioner instead looks for local “pain points” and “origin points” in the affected region. A pain point is likely to be a tender superficial nerve, inflamed tissue or trigger point (muscle knot).
