What if I told you that there is a different way to tackle your health issues by promoting your body’s own regulatory systems? Instead of suppressing your symptoms, we can mobilise your own defenses and relieve your discomfort without feeding you a handful of pills.
Biopuncture is a type of injection therapy in which specific zones or points on the body are injected with highly diluted natural products mostly derived from botanicals. Injections are predominantly skin deep or alternatively injected directly into the muscle. The technique has been used with great success for over 50 years in Germany.
These days, many doctors are frustrated by the conventional healthcare system when it comes to the treatment of inflammatory conditions, allergies, sports injuries and musculoskeletal pain. The costs of modern health care, along with unwanted side effects has encouraged doctors to seek techniques which are easy to learn, effective for acute and chronic diseases and, ultimately, safer for their patients. The application of Biopuncture is bound to be one of the modern tools used to fulfill these needs. This approach has incorporated components of many kinds of injection techniques and has become increasingly sophisticated over the last decade. Its logic, efficacy, and safety dictates that it should become an integral treatment in the arsenal of 21st-century medicine.
What can we treat with Biopuncture?
- Migraines and chronic headaches
- Neck and shoulder spasms
- Chronic myofascial pain syndrome
- Lower back, knee and ankle pain/ injuries
- Menopause/ Andropause
- Gut issues
- Stress and mental fatigue
- Cellulite and fat reduction
- Viral infection (and safe to use in conjunction with ARV’s)
- Bacterial infection
- Bronchitis/ asthma

How does it work and why should you consider it as a treatment option?
Biopuncture is referred to as bioregulatory therapy and is an effective and rather inexpensive way to promote the natural regulatory processes in the body that reduces inflammation, enhance the body’s natural immunity, and promotes healing and better health. Its objective is to restore normal functioning of the autoregulatory (self- regulating) systems which guide the basic physiological processes in the body. Each system has its own set point around which these regulatory processes fluctuate to maintain homeostasis or equilibrium. Biopuncture works by stimulating the immune system to restart/ reboot its innate healing capacities i.e., improved local circulation, tissue repair, muscle relaxation and local detoxification.
The medicines used are mainly plant-derived, have bioregulatory characteristics, non-toxic and do not have suppressive effects. They are low or ultra-low dose compared to medications used in traditional medicine. They are manufactured according to stringent guidelines and listed in the MIMS (Monthly index of Medicine Specialities). Also, they are sterile and free of pathogens and imported from the US.
Injections are guided by both physical and functional examination. Injections are given at local and distant sites depending on the condition being treated.
What makes Biopuncture a logical choice is that it is simple, reproducible, clinically effective, non-surgical, cost-effective and has little-to-no side effects. In some cases, it can even be administered orally.
My experience – Review by Dr Lilliana Gilla Lulli:
I’m a chronic headache and migraine sufferer. Regarding investigations and treatments; you name it, I’ve done it. So, when the opportunity to learn about and experience a new modality presented itself, naturally, I jumped at the chance! My sceptical-self didn't expect much. In fact, anticipating the detoxifying effects, I expected my pain to get worse before it got better. A total of 22 injections were administered into the base of my skull, neck, back, and sternum. The needles were tiny, and the medication had a small sting to it. As I write this article it has been exactly 21 days, three treatment sessions (once a week with a different formulation each session) and 0 headaches. I'm unable to recall the last time I had more than two days in succession without a headache!
The world around me has changed. I have increased mental capacity and energy throughout the day because I am no longer wrestling with background pain.
While Biopuncture is not a cure-all or a silver bullet; it should be taken seriously as an adjunct to existing treatment modalities. It abides by the premise of “first do no harm” and seeks to heal actively rather than by suppressive processes.
Biopucture treatment is available at all Renewal Institute branches and it is administered by a qualified medical doctor.
