Acupoint Injection Therapy is an impressive combination of Eastern and Western medicine. By injecting vitamins and homeopathic medicine into Acupuncture points treatments are enhanced bringing the body into balance and promoting healing on a deep cellular level.
Scroll down to view some of the Vitamin and Homeopathic Injections we offer:
Methyl B12 Injections
Methyl B12 Injections help Sleep, Mood, Metabolism and ENERGY!
About half of all people are B12 deficient for various reasons including malabsorption, diet and age. B12 affects the blood, brain, nerves and eyes. Early signs of B12 deficiency include fatigue, lack of motivation, and insomnia. Later signs include memory loss, lack of balance and other neurological issues.
In addition B12 supports a healthy liver for detoxification, lowers homocysteine levesl to reduce the risk of heart attack and stroke and regulates the release of the stress hormone, cortisol, which when released causes weight gain.
At Point Lumineux, we use only the best injectables. Our B12 is methylcobalamin. Even in injection form, methylcobalamin is 100 x more bioavailable than other less expensive forms of B12 including hydroxocobalamin and cyanocobalamin. Cyanocobalamin even contains a cyanide group!
*Methylcobalamin or Methyl B12 is the desired form of B12 for your body to readily utilize.
Vitamin D3 Injections
Vitamin D3 is the most common vitamin deficiency yet it is not a vitamin at all! It’s a hormone. Vitamin D3, cholecalciferol, is the hormone that every mammal has to indicate when it’s winter time. The sun hitting the skin begins a biochemical chain reaction involving both the liver and the kidneys that eventually affects every system in the body.
During winter, when sun is scarce, Vitamin D3 levels drop indicating to the body that it’s time to hibernate as there will inevitably be less food available. Metabolism slows through the action of the thyroid. Fat is stored rather than burnt as fuel. Sex hormones and fertility wane. Sleep cycles lengthen and lighten. Energy levels and brain function drop. Immune system goes to standby mode.
About 75% of people are Vitamin D deficient all year round! This pandemic problem is caused by our modern lifestyle of too much work and not enough sun. We even avoid the sun because it can cause cancer. Ironically, Vitamin D deficiency has been linked to many diseases including cancer, depression, autoimmune diseases, obesity, asthma, migraines, dementia, diabetes, heart disease, gastrointestinal disorders and more.
MIC Lipotropic Injections
MIC injections help release fat deposits from the stomach, inner thighs, neck, buttocks and hips. We generally combine MIC with Methyl B12 to create a fantastic metabolism booster!
- Methionine –A sulfur-containing amino acid that assists in the breakdown of fat in the liver helping to lower cholesterol and prevent fatigue. It acts as a lipotropic agent to prevent excess fat buildup in the liver and the body. It may also be useful in some cases of allergies because it reduces histamine release.
- Inositol – Inositol is a B-vitamin that promotes the health of cell structures and nerve synapses. It aids in the metabolism of fats and helps reduce blood cholesterol. Inositol participates in the action of serotonin, a neurotransmitter that controls mood and appetite.
- Choline –Choline is an essential nutrient that helps to support the health of the liver in its processing and excretion of chemical waste products within the body. It is required for the transport and metabolism of fats and cholesterol within the body, which is important for the healthy support of the endocrine, cardiovascular and hepatic systems. It has been shown to also aid with memory and to maintain a healthy nervous system.
One of the most powerful antioxidants and detoxifiers, Glutathione is comprised of three sulfur-containing amino acids and is actually created inside your body. This magic molecule is intimately involved in the life cycle of the cell from birth to death. It is the “maestro of the immune system and the master detoxifier,” according to Dr. Mark Hyman.
Glutathione helps the liver to clear toxins from the body by acting like glue for the toxins to stick to and be eliminated. Glutathione is required to make bile which breaks down dietary fat in the body. It is also essential for many other body processes cellular redox homeostasis, oxygen transport, protection of DNA, amino acid transport, protection of B12 inside the cells and the removal of heavy metals.
Homeopathic injections are an all natural and very effective alternative to cortisone injections. We offer several Injections that are specific to the pain or soreness you are experiencing. Homeopathic formulas combine the best of what mother earth naturally provides and the best modern applications and plant based ingredient compounds for effectiveness.
Traumeel is a homeopathic formula used for effective pain relief and to reduce inflammation while promoting healing. For persistent pain or acute injury, a Traumeel injection can bring immediate pain reduction with no side effects.
The all-natural ingredients in Traumeel are formulated with a high-margin of safety as well as effectiveness. Traumeel contains Arnica and other homeopathic medicine which helps to reduce inflammation and heal the body quicker.
Traumeel has been shown in studies to modulate the release of oxygen free radicals from activated neutrophils, and inhibit release of inflammatory mediators. This is an all natural and less harmful way to modulate inflammation than with NSAIDS and steroids.
