Acupuncture is an ancient Eastern Medicine healing technique that has been applied for thousands of years in the East but only gained popularity in the United States starting in 1972. Acupuncture is based on the idea that energy (also referred to as Chi or Qi) flows in pathways throughout the body and disease is caused by disrupted flow or blocked pathways. By using fine needles inserted at specific points on the body, any issues with energy flow can be corrected and your health restored. Because we take a holistic approach, we can use acupuncture along with other complementary therapies to enhance your body’s response to treatment and address the root causes of any health issues. Acupuncture is effective in combating a number of conditions including but not limited to the following:

  • Anxiety
  • Allergy
  • Acne
  • Back pain
  • Infertility
  • High cholesterol
  • Arthritis
  • Diabetes
  • Crohn’s Disease

  • Gout
  • Pre-Menstrual Syndrome (PMS)
  • Psoriasis
  • Urinary Tract Infections (UTIs)

Biopuncture (Neural Therapy)

Biopuncture has been a popular injection-based treatment method used for years in Europe for all types of pain and inflammation, but only widely used in the United States since 2008. It is used in the U.S. for pain, inflammation, asthma, menstrual irregularities, and GI issues (like IBS).

To promote healing, ultra-low doses (ULDs or “micro-doses”) of medicinal plant and mineral-based products, Vitamin B, and/or numbing agents are injected under the skin into acupuncture points or areas around the specific pain point that we identify. Biopuncture combines principles used in acupuncture by using common acupuncture points and also, homeopathy, by using highly diluted substances.

If you have severe depression, fibromyalgia, auto-immune disease, multiple sclerosis or another major illness, biopuncture may not be the best treatment for you. If you are seeking pain relief, especially relief from chronic pain, you may be a good candidate for biopuncture. Specifically, this treatment method provides healing for the following common complaints:

  • Joint pain
  • Tendonitis
  • Plantar fasciitis
  • Shoulder pain (rotator cuff syndrome, impingement)
  • Mild to moderate arthritis
  • Back/neck pain
  • Nerve pain, painful scars, residual pain after surgery
  • Eczema
  • Bronchitis
  • Asthma and hay fever
  • Irritable Bowel Syndrome (IBS)
  • Migraine headaches
  • Sinusitis
  • Colds and flu
  • Scar reduction
  • Fibromyalgia
  • Abscesses
  • Chronic cough

Because the best results for diseases occur when you combine biopuncture with good nutrition and supplementation, we urge you to make an appointment with us so that we can develop the most comprehensive treatment plan specific to your overall needs.

SCENAR Therapy

Did you know that any irritation in the body is communicated to the brain in the form of electrical impulses? This knowledge is what drove Alexander Karasev to think about developing a universal “electrical” device, something that would allow healthy electrical signals to be communicated to the brain. This is how SCENAR therapy was born. Originally developed for astronauts to solve the problem of treating a wide range of medical conditions in a limited space, SCENAR therapy uses a device about the size of a TV remote control that simply is applied to your area of concern. It picks up any imbalance , regardless of its origin or etiology, and sends that message to your brain, which then responds by making the neurochemicals needed to restore balance. For example, someone experiencing menstrual cramps may find immediate relief as the body directs its natural chemistry towards the abdomen as the SCENAR treatment is done.

Essentially, SCENAR therapy triggers your own body to “remember” how the particular organ or area in question is supposed to function and allows your body to mobilize what’s needed (usually neurochemicals or nutrients) to heal itself. SCENAR also increases your ability to adapt to stress and heal rapidly and naturally without medication. SCENAR is FDA-approved for stress reduction, pain relief, and muscle re-education and is commonly used to treat the following:

  • Old sports injuries
  • Acute injuries
  • Infections
  • Chronic conditions
  • Neurological disorders
  • Endocrine disorders
  • Skin disease
  • Mental disorders
  • Migraines/ headaches
  • Pain or soreness from car accidents
  • Fatigue
  • Cold, pneumonia
  • Post stroke

Homeopathic Medicine

Homeopathic medicine is built on the basic principle of “like cures like.” As naturopathic doctors looking at the whole patient, we can determine based on your physical, psychological, and emotional state which homeopathic remedy is best suited to your symptoms. This is important because homeopathic medicine has the ability to effect change both physically and emotionally when all aspects of your health are considered. Each person is unique, and homeopathy allows the body to decide what to heal, the newest issue to the oldest, like an onion, peeling away the problems as it works.

Homeopathic remedies are made from plant, mineral, metal, or chemical ingredients which are highly diluted in water so no actual substance remains – just its energetic imprint.

Many of our patients praise not only the effectiveness of homeopathy, but also its lower cost compared to drugs and supplements. Another benefit is homeopathic remedies usually have little to no side effects. Homeopathy is particularly effective in treating mood disorders, because the results are apparent on all levels–the patient feels better almost immediately, can function better in day-to-day life, and can make more progress in therapy.

Homeopathy can be used as an acute treatment for a recent health concern that needs immediate attention at the onset or as a chronic treatment for a continuous or recurring health problem.   For example, homeopathic remedies have been used to treat the following:

  • Colds and flu
  • Infections
  • Injuries
  • Chronic fatigue
  • Fibromyalgia
  • Depression and anxiety
  • Surgery recovery
  • Insomnia
  • Menopause

As homeopathy can facilitate healing on multiple levels – physical, mental, and emotional – a single remedy can bring about positive health changes in all of these at once.
