Homeo Acupuncture

INTRODUCTION 

With the introduction of modern practices, such as Electrotherapy, Ryodoraku, EAV, Bioresonance therapy, Laser-Acupuncture, Magneto- Acupuncture and so on, the face of Traditional Chinese Medicine has undergone sweeping changes during the last 30 years. 
 
The discovery of a plethora of neurotransmitters, hormonal mechanisms and neural mechanisms, which are triggered by needling have swung the pendulum of credibility of acupuncture in one great leap forward, from a folk medicine to the sophisticated finely tuned neuro-humoral mechanism which it probably is. 
 
The combination of acupuncture with anesthetics (Acu-esthesia) for anesthesia in surgery was initiated by Prof. Anton Jayasuriya in Sri Lanka. 
The combination of acupuncture and homeopathy on the needle (homeopuncture) has brought Complementary Medicine and Traditional 
Chinese Medicine to a higher level. 
 
 
WHAT IS HOMEOPUNCTURE?

We can define it as the puncture of acupuncture points after dipping the needle in a specific homeopathic remedy. We can also describe Homeopuncture as a methodology by which the specific homeopathic remedy is placed directly in the tissue by first dipping an acupuncture needle in the (liquid) remedy and then puncturing at the specific acupuncture points. 
 
In smaller doses 30C (i.e. 1/30,000 dilution) and when taken for longer periods he would develop symptoms like running nose, asthma attack, skin and nerve disturbance. According to the homeopathic law that “like cures like”, patients displaying such symptoms have been cured by Arsenic irrespective of the disease (eczema, asthma, sinusitis, etc.). Similarly we use Belladonna 30C for asthma with different symptoms, e.g. wheezing. 
 
 
ADVANTAGES

Homeopuncture has the following advantages: 
1) Normally in homeopathy, the remedy is placed under the tongue (liquid) or swallowed as a tablet. But in homeopuncture the remedy is placed directly in the tissue. The saliva and other oral barriers are avoided (bypassed). 
2) Action is direct and immediate. 
3) The complementary action of acupuncture therapy helps to enhance the cure. 
 
No two patients with headache require the same medicine. Each one's headache has its own peculiar symptoms and therefore its own remedies, e.g. headache from dental amalgam, use Mercurius solubis 30C. 
 
One major advantage of homeopathy is its safety. While its medicines are powerful in action working with the body's own defense, their actual measurable strength is too low to give rise to the undesirable side effects that many modern drugs produce in orthodox medicine.
