What is Biopuncture?
During a biopuncture session, Dr. Damron injects biological products into specific sites on the body.
The biological products are injected into your pet’s muscle or subcutaneous tissues.
Biopuncture is a form of alternative medicine therapy.
Generally, the products injected come from plants. Upon injection, they stimulate your pet’s immune system.
Often, acupuncture points are used for biopuncture injections.
In theory, biopuncture works more effectively when placed in acupuncture points.
Biopuncture isn’t a new procedure. It’s been used in other countries for years.
In fact, it is still a common procedure for people in other countries.
In human medicine, Biopuncture is considered a “bioregulatory” therapy.
Bioregulatory medicine, as a practice, evolved from Europe’s homeopathic medical tradition. Bioregulatory medicine’s objectives are:
- Restoring normal function of basic physiological body processes
- Auto-regulating the body systems steering the body’s basic physiological processes.
Your pet’s body has numerous auto-regulating systems. Each system has its own set point.
And, the auto-regulating process fluctuates to maintain homeostasis near the set point.
Sometimes, the auto-regulation process gets skewed. And, biopuncture helps bring everything back into balance.
What Kinds of Products Do You Inject?
Dr. Damron uses various biologicals depending on the pet’s health challenges.
Some of Dr. Damron’s favorites are:
- Vitamin B12
- Platelet-Rich Plasma (PRP)
Usually, doctors inject platelet-rich plasma into damaged muscle, ligaments, or joints.
Are The Products Safe for My Pet?
The medical community holds injectable biologicals to the same standards as all other injectable medications.
Furthermore, many of the biologicals used are human safe.
How Do The Injections Work?
The medication used for injection is a very small dose.
The low dose “wakes up” the immune system.
In turn, the body heals itself instead of the medication doing the work.
As your pet’s body reacts, it will begin self-healing via:
- Increased blood flow to the area
- Muscle relaxation
- Tissue repair
Treatments often take longer than conventional medicine to heal the body.
However, there are often fewer side effects.
