Dr. Elmajian has been an advocate for detoxification for many years and recommends and guides his patients through proper protocols suited to their needs. 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.

This has proven to be a valuable tool in the diagnosis of jaw cavitation and in numerous other treatment applications.
