Module 1
Mesotherapy, Homotoxicology, and Mesoreflexotherapy



Mesotherapy

Mesotherapy is a therapeutic procedure that stimulates organs derived from the mesoderm, through the skin by injecting small doses of homeopathic agents or allopathic medicines. Injections are specific to the target area needing improvement. It is a simple, non-aggressive technique that permits the injection of mixtures of medications that have been carefully chosen after making a clinical diagnosis of the patient’s problem. Mesotherapy complements regular clinical treatments for a large variety of pathologies such as cellulite, localized fat, alopecia, arthritis, and pain management.

Dr. Michel Pistor created this therapeutic method in 1952 and it has gained widespread acceptance outside Europe. Mesotherapy has been practiced in the USA and Canada since 2005 and is steadily gaining interest due to its safe and effective approach to pain management and cosmetic medicine.


Homotoxicology

Mesotherapy Module 1 Homotoxicology is an approach to healing that integrates the treatment principles of homeopathy. Although Homotoxicology is based on the principals of homeopathy it can be thought of as a "bridge" between conventional and homeopathic medicine. Homotoxicology uses combinations of homeopathic remedies or complexes to stimulate the bodies’ purification processes. The elimination of toxins (homotoxins) produced in the body and its cells by infection, lifestyle, environment, medical or surgical treatment is facilitated by the use of Homotoxicogological remedies.

Homotoxicology was developed in 1952 by Dr. Hans Henrich Reckeweg (Germany) as an extension of classic homeopathy to take advantage and use the explosion of knowledge in the basic medical sciences in conjunction with the principals of homeopathy.

One key difference is that it places more emphasis on the physical manifestations of disease and tends to use diagnostic tools based on anatomical and clinical findings and then utilizes complex homeopathic remedies designed to restore the patients’ vital energy and to balance the biological flow system Dr Reckeweg integrated the principles of classical homoeopathy as developed by Hahnemann with the new discoveries in biochemistry and embryology that had been made by the 1940’s.

The word ‘Homotoxin’ means 'human poison' or 'human toxic substance'- from the Latin word homo=man and the Greek word tokson=poison. He defined ‘Homotoxins’ as substances that were harmful to the human body. ‘Homotoxones’ are substances within the body that bind with and neutralise homotoxins, preparing them for elimination from the body.


Understanding Homotoxicology

It is understood that toxins cause diseases. These toxins are seen to originate either outside the body (exotoxins) or within the body (endotoxins). Examples of exotoxins are bacteria, metals such as mercury, micro-organisms in the gut causing dysbiosis (often due to an unhealthy diet, hormone replacement therapy, and antibiotics), chronic yeast infections (Candida), chemical pollutants such as gas, diesel and petrol fumes, exposure to unhealthy electro-magnetic fields, pesticides, and undiagnosed bacterial (salmonella paratyphi), or protozoon (Giardia and amoeba) infections in the gut. Endotoxins are biologically derived, or result from post-traumatic cellular debris. Homotoxicology means the study of the effects of toxic substances on human beings. Homotoxicology is a way of understanding the origins of disease and cure.

According to Dr. Reckeweg, “diseases are expressions of the battle of the organism against toxins, in its attempt to counteract and expel them When the body can no longer expel them, for whatever reason, the organism tries through increased pathological means to make up for the damage already sustained”. In other words, in Homotoxicology, virtually all symptoms of illness are regarded as a manifestation of the body’s attempts to rid itself of Homotoxins. In minor, self-limiting disorders, the body does this unaided. In more serious situations, treatment is needed.

If the treatment used eliminates the Homotoxins, then real healing results. If the treatment suppresses the Homotoxins, however, (antibiotics, steroids; most drugs) then they go deeper into the tissues and manifest after a latent period as a more destructive disease, and may lead to chronic degenerative disease.


Mesoreflexotherapy

Mesoreflexotherapy is a name for a therapy that uses biotherapeutics for injection according to mesotherapy principles to treat specific disorders. It has its origin in a combination of acupuncture, mesotherapy and homotoxicology. Mesoreflexotherapy uses acupuncture points to inject homeopathic medications and stimulate associated meridians for a reflex action. In mesoreflexotherapy two major decisions are to be determined: what to inject, and where to inject it. The physician can indeed make an enormous variety of combinations, using products on several different areas.

Module 2
Mesotherapy in Cosmetic Medicine



Cosmetic Medicine Module 2 Beauty without health does not exist, because inevitably the organ pathologies are reflected in the external aspect of the person (skin, hair, eyes, etc). Acne, cellulite, wrinkles, alopecia, pain are signs of organ disfunctions.

The manifestations in its origin of this poor function will be translated in a notable aesthetic result. It is obvious that the general practitioner is not a surgeon and, therefore, cannot alter the person’s morphology, but it can contribute to improve his/her physical aspect remarkably. Many mesotherapists practice the specialty of medical aesthetics because of the beautifying effects it has on the skin. Wrinkles, cellulite and skin rejuvenation are the most effective complaints successfully treated with Mesotherapy. Mesotherapy in combination with other cosmetic procedures also provide overwhelming results.

Mesotherapy strengthens elastin fibres, stimulates collagen production, fights free radicals and stimulates cellular activity. Loose skin appears firmer and looks younger and healthier, fine lines will be reduced and skin will “glow” as a result of mesotherapy treatments. The primary reasons these injections are so effective for wrinkles and cellulite is that when administered correctly the injections reach not only the different layers of the skin, but the subcutaneous fat as well, helping reverse the physiology.

Applied to the aesthetic medicine, mesotherapy gives excellent results, it does not erase wrinkles, cannot alter abdominal morphology, but it can give to the face freshness and a better tone, reduce the cellulite and give greater firmness to the breast.

Consider cosmetic mesotherapy for the following:
• Cellulite
• Fat deposits – saddlebags, love handles, localized abdominal fat, neck
• Body contouring & toning
• Facial skin rejuvenation for wrinkles and management of skin laxity

Module 3
Mesotherapy for Pain Management



Pain Management Module 3 In essence, Mesotherapy is a microdose introduction of substances into the dermis in serial puncture type techniques. These puncture techniques can be papule techniques or can be what is known as a nappage technique, a very superficial introduction of the needle into the dermis or a point to point technique. All of these are in an effort to deliver the medication locally, and in a drop by drop manner.

The theory behind this technique is to introduce the medicine in a time-released fashion, so that the action of the medicine is more evenly and slowly introduced into the circulatory and lymphatic networks to be distributed through to the underlining tissue.
The difference between an interdermal technique such as Mesotherapy and intravenous or intermuscular techniques is that the medication in an intravenous or an intermuscular technique is delivered in a fast-acting fashion however, the results of this are actually fleeting, whereas the results from a Mesotherapeutic technique can be more long lasting.

The points chosen for the actual delivery of the medication are based on classic acupuncture points or Ashi points, segmental points, localizing the treatment specifically related to a particular area of the body, and symptomatic points are where patients experience pain. The frequency of therapy is once or twice a week for a duration of three to four sessions. By the end of three to four sessions, therapeutic effectiveness is revealed. The best results are usually reported between the second and third sessions. A healing crisis may occur where the area treatment may become inflamed as the body attempts to find order. As a result, patients may experience an exacerbation of their symptoms.

In general, Mesotherapy can be a helpful and cost effective therapeutic tool to bring patients to better function, to improve their quality of life and to manage pain from a perspective which is not just about symptomatic management of pain but the actual resolution of the inflammatory response and the ensuing degenerative processes.

• Injury, trauma and pain management for tendinitis, low back pain, knees, shoulders
• Sports medicine
• Neuropathic pain syndrome
• Muscular tension & arthralgia
