He has extensively studied and adopted the powerful field of homotoxicology and uses homeopathic remedies to support a person’s own healing abilities.
Dr. Elmajian has also been involved in research in the fields of myofascial and neural therapy. He was one of the first in these fields to use homeopathic remedies along with local anaesthetic for various required injections. He discovered the revolutionary technique of intraoesseous neural therapy (I.O.N.T.). This has proven to be a valuable tool in the diagnosis of jaw cavitation and in numerous other treatment applications.
