Neural Therapy/Segmental Therapy of Drs. Hueneke
This is practiced by Dietrich Klinghardt, M.D., Ph.D., founder of the American Academy of Neural Therapy, under whom I have studied.
[See also: Neural Therapy on the Klinghardt Information page.]
The technique of Homeosinensis according to Prof.Dr. Hans Heinrich Reckeweg MD is the injection of small amounts of complex homeopathic, sterilised injection fluids into acupuncture points.
The technique of Biopuncture according to Dr. Jan Kerschot MD is a combination of Homeosinensis, Neural Therapy according to Drs. Ferdinand Huneke MD & Walter Huneke MD and predominantly myofascial techniques (AhShi) in acupuncture.
In 1925, Dr. Ferdinand Huneke accidentally gave his sister, who was suffering from migraines, an injection of a pharmaceutical product containing procaine. This cured her of a persistent, therapy resistant migraine that had plagued her for years. A single further treatment produced a lasting cure. With his brother Walter he now expanded into a method with the knowledge that procaine can be used not only as a local anesthetic, but also for therapeutic purposes.
In 1927 they jointly published their experiences to date: 'Unbekannte Fernwirkungen der Lokalanästhesie' (unfamiliar remote effects of local anesthetics). They first called their procedure therapeutic anesthesia, and later changed this to segmental therapy.
In 1940, Ferdinand Huneke observed his first 'lightning reaction' and immediately recognized its therapeutic importance. He treated a woman who had for months suffered from persistent periarthritis humeroscapularis (L). Based on the widely held view at the time that a focus spreads bacteria and toxins via the blood, and that these had caused the painful joint symptoms, she had already had her tonsils, most of her teeth, and her appendix removed. Now it was planned to amputate her right leg, as it was believed that this was the focus causing her disorder as 35 years earlier she had had osteomyelitis in this leg. Huneke now treated her in the same way that had helped patients in similar circumstances. But in this case, everything failed and he had to discharge the patient uncured. A couple of weeks later she came back; her leg scar had become inflamed, turned bright red, and was extremely itchy. Huneke now planned to treat only this scar by a few quaddles (weals) when he witnessed the first lightning reaction. All shoulder pain on her opposite side instantly disappeared and the woman was able to move her arm without pain. To Huneke this seerned to prove that locally, circumscribed areas of pathogenic irritation, what we now call interference fields , can trigger and maintain remote symptoms beyond the segmental order, and that they do so not via the bloodstream but primarily by means of the neural pathways. At the same time he had discovered a causal approach to curing such disorders.
At the Integrated Medicine Practice Homeosinensis (Biopuncture) is performed without the use of lidocaine or procain unfortunately, for no other than medico-legal reasons. Even by itself, the combination of acupuncture and complex homeopathy (homeosinensis) is an extremely powerful tool that benefits many patients. Both techniques use very fine needles (as thin as acupuncture needles) so it is as painless as acupuncture. The reason for homeosinensis (biopuncture) is its increased efficacy beyond the oral ingestion or local application of complex homeopathics. The latter two can of course be combined with homeosinensis or biopuncture. A book the browser is recommended to read is 'Biopuncture and Antihomotoxic Medicine' by Dr. Jan Kerschot MD and many books are available on Neural Therapy. Below are some example applications of biopuncture that might be of interest to you:
