What is Biopuncture/Aquapuncture?
Biopuncture (also referred to as aquapuncture) is a therapeutic approach that involves injecting specific locations with biological products, predominantly sourced from plants.
This innovative therapy helps your pet by delivering the substances either into the skin or into the muscles.
By leveraging the natural properties of plant-derived substances, biopuncture offers a holistic and targeted approach to support your pet’s health and vitality.
If you’re considering this therapy for your furry companion, it’s essential to consult with a qualified professional who can provide personalized guidance based on your pet’s unique needs and conditions.
What Kinds of Products are Being Injected?
In our practice, we prioritize your pet’s well-being by frequently utilizing a range of injectable products, each chosen to enhance their health.
Products include Traumeel and Zeel, which harness ingredients’ natural power, and Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP), which utilizes your pet’s own platelets for healing.
Additionally, we incorporate a variety of botanicals and essential nutrients, including vitamin B, into our treatment approach.
Vitamin B plays a crucial role in supporting overall health and vitality.
If you have any questions or are curious about the specific benefits of these injectable products, including the valuable contribution of vitamin B, feel free to engage with our knowledgeable team.
We are dedicated to providing personalized and comprehensive care to address the unique needs of your cherished companion.
Are The Products Safe For My Pet?
How Can Diluted Substances Actually Have an Effect on The Body?
The concentration of plant extracts in most ampules is a point of contention among conventional veterinarians, often raising questions about the effectiveness of the products.
It’s crucial to clarify that the products used in biopuncture are distinct in their formulation, avoiding the extensive dilution seen in traditional homeopathy. In fact, we refer to them as ultra-low doses, indicating a more concentrated composition for enhanced impact.
While scientists are still working towards definitive proof, they posit that these injections exert their effects by stimulating the immune system – the body’s formidable defense mechanism.
Drawing a parallel with vaccinations offers insight. Just as a minimal amount of a vaccine can trigger a robust immune response in dogs, biopuncture injections, while not vaccinations, operate on a similar principle.
The small doses of carefully selected products profoundly impact your pet’s defense systems. This significant effect can endure for extended periods, akin to the long-lasting protection achieved through vaccinations.
It’s important to understand that biopuncture doesn’t replicate vaccinations, but rather, it capitalizes on the concept that small doses of the right substances can influence the body’s defense mechanisms.
The result is stimulating your pet’s immune system, reawakening its inherent healing capacities for lasting clinical effects.
Has it Been Proven That Biopuncture Works By Stimulating The Immune System?
But How Does Biopuncture Work to Help My Pet With Pain or Inflammation?
Will Biopuncture Help My Pet as Quickly as Conventional Therapies?
Injections of ultra-low doses, as used in biopuncture, are not as potent as, for instance, cortisone injections, which aim for immediate inflammation suppression.
However, this distinction is intentional. Unlike conventional drugs, the goal of biopuncture is not to swiftly suppress inflammation but to consider it a vital element in achieving genuine and lasting healing of injured tissues.
Biopuncture takes a unique approach by supporting the natural inflammatory processes. Instead of immediate relief, the objective is complete and natural healing.
In contrast to conventional drugs, which often aim to suppress symptoms quickly, the injections in biopuncture may result in a temporary increase in pain the next day – a phase referred to as the “reaction phase.” This is seen as a positive response, indicating the body’s engagement with the healing process.
Moreover, the pain may occasionally shift to other areas during the “adaptation phase” as the body adjusts to the new situation.
Biopuncturists view these phases as integral to the healing journey. While symptomatic relief may take some time, especially for long-standing issues, biopuncture has shown swift results when dealing with fresh injuries.
Understanding and navigating through these phases are crucial aspects of the biopuncture approach.
Where Are The Injections Given?
I’ve Heard Things Can Get Worse Immediately After the First Treatment.
Yes, that’s right. It’s not uncommon to notice a temporary worsening of your pet’s condition, particularly on the day following the injection – a phenomenon that starkly contrasts the placebo effect.
This temporary increase in pain or discomfort is part of what we call the “reaction phase” in biopuncture. Contrary to initial concerns, this phase indicates that the healing processes are actively underway.
In biopuncture, the “reaction phase” signifies that genuine healing is in progress. It’s a noteworthy aspect of the treatment, indicating that your pet’s body responds to the therapeutic intervention.
While observing a brief exacerbation of symptoms may be disconcerting, rest assured that this is a transient stage on the path to overall improvement.
Understanding and recognizing the “reaction phase” is crucial, and our team is here to guide you through this aspect of the biopuncture journey.
