The best known remedy is Traumeel. It is an anti-inflammatory pain reliever. Spascupreel is used as an anti-spasmodic, helping to release your tight and spastic muscles. Lymphdiaral reduces your swelling. Zeel and Pascoe-Agil are for your joint pain and arthritis.
A whole line of remedies by Guna treats specific body areas: back, neck, arms, shoulders, hips, knees, ankles.
Procaine is the only pharmaceutical I inject. I use just a 1% dilution, which I further dilute with one of the natural remedies. Procaine is a local anesthetic.
TCM practitioners choose point location based on where you have pain so that the remedy doesn’t have far to travel. Pain relief may be instant, may take until the next day, or take a couple of treatments.
I have had stiffness and minimal mobility in my shoulder for over a year. I had heard about biopuncture and was interested in Dr. Carr’s treatment because I do not like to take drugs for pain.
My shoulder had been sore every night for a week. I wasn’t sure what to expect but the biopuncture needle felt similar to an acupuncture needle. That night, I felt a big difference in my shoulder and did not experience the nightly soreness.
I have had a second treatment and I have gained more mobility in my shoulder. Since the treatments are natural and work with my body’s ability to heal itself, I am going to continue along this path.
