Common Questions about Injection Therapy

by Michelle Sauberzweig

What substances are used to inject into the body?
All homeopathic Heel substances are used at Living Well Acupuncture. They include Traumeel, Zeel, Spascupreel, Lyphomyosot, Engystol and Neuralgo-Rheum.

Why are these homeopathic injections used?
Injection therapy is an alternative approach to pain that is indicated for patients with acute and chronic pain & inflammation. Most people use them because they are looking for safe and natural alternatives to treat, not mask their symptoms. Homeopathic injections are a great alternative to corticosteroids and pain medication. In addition, these injections decrease the number of overall acupuncture treatments needed. Delivering a therapeutic substance into the affected area works well with acupuncture. They both work to heal the body from the inside out!

Who is considered a great candidate for Injection Therapy?
• Patients with a history of GI and cardiovascular complaints
• Patients unsuited for corticosteroid therapy
• Patients with chronic conditions requiring safe alternative for long term pain relief
