ADDICTIONS

 

Smoking, Alcohol and Drug

Addiction can be a tough cycle to break. Whether you are addicted to nicotine from years of smoking or alcohol or other drugs, the basic concept of recovery is the same. You must find a way to detoxify your body and control the strong cravings of your addiction.

Acupuncture works by stimulating the release of endorphins in the brain, which helps to combat the cravings. If treatment is given on a regular basis, this helps to break the cycle of addiction. Needle placement varies for each individual, but common points of insertion include the ears, feet, and top of the head.  From a Chinese perspective, the surface of the ear is like a map of the whole body. Points on the ear correspond to different body parts, so by placing needles in the points that correspond to the organs most affected by addiction, treatment helps to detoxify those organs. Typically, the ones that are most affected are the liver, kidneys and lungs

The Origins of Acupuncture Treatment for Alcoholism and Addiction

Acupuncture treatment for addiction dates back to the early 1970s. "In 1972, a neurosurgeon in Hong Kong, Dr. H. L. Wen, was preparing a patient for surgery using ear acupuncture as an analgesic method. The patient, who coincidentally was suffering from withdrawal symptoms from opium, informed Dr. Wen that his withdrawal symptoms had subsided. In light of this information, Dr. Wen tested the procedure on other patients with similar addictions and their discomfort diminished as well."

How it works

Addiction is a two-part problem. There is an obsession (the desire to use, drink, or act out), which is a mental and emotional phenomena (restlessness, discontent, irritability), and there is a physical/emotional craving that occurs afterwards .

Ear acupuncture also known as auriculartherapy targets specific ear points that are used to release neurotransmitters in the brain such as dopimine, serotonin, and endorphins, the pleasure center of the brain, which help to break the addiction cycle. When you stimulate an acupoint, an acupuncture nerve point, on your ear or on your body, your brain can release the neurotransmitters that eliminate cravings from addiction withdrawal. This technology coupled with our behavioural modification addiction counseling and nutritional guidance currently has a75% - 85% stop smoking success rate.
