Acupuncture Point Injection Therapy

APIT is the injection of vitamins, herbs or homeopathic into Acupuncture points, trigger points, or muscles to help alleviate pain, boost the immune system and help manage chronic ailments. This therapy can be extremely effective in treating conditions such as neck pain, frozen shoulder, sports injuries, carpal tunnel, hip or low back pain, sciatic nerve pain, headaches, tennis elbow and knee, foot or ankle pain. Additionally, Dr. Lauren Edwards provides B12 injections, which are excellent in boosting immunity, increasing energy and metabolism, and nourishing the blood.

Finally, when the change of seasons come and flu shots are recommended, Dr. Edwards offers a Homeopathic flu shot that is completely natural, holistic and effective in boosting the body’s own immunity and preventing illness.


Vitamin B12

Vitamin B12 is beneficial for many reasons. It can increase energy, support the immune system, boost metabolism and regulate sleep. Not only will you feel better, but the vitamin will help keep your nerves and red blood cells in functioning optimally. In addition the supplement help you burn fat, but will help to detoxify your liver and aid in the production of Serotonin.

When B12 is taken orally, there is a first pass effect. Essentially when digested the stomach acids that aid in helping food break down, actually break down and dissolve B12. When utilized as an injection, the vitamin is absorbed directly into the blood stream.

Dosage and Protocol:

Since B12 is a vitamin, it will start being eliminated by the urine within 24-72 hours. However, patients claim they feel the effects up to 2-3 weeks. If someone is already deficient, the benefits may be felt for shorter amounts of time. During the cold and flu season, I recommend supplementing with B12 more frequently to keep the immune system boosted and energy high.
