Acudetox is a kind of acupuncture performed on the ears. First used by the Chinese, acupuncture is the world’s oldest medical science – and has been for over 3 000 years – to harmonise the body’s system.
Acupuncture has long been recognised as a therapeutic technique for the body. So, it should not come as any surprise that the Acudetox protocol is the most powerful and fastest way in the world to remove toxins from the human body, by using only a five-point protocol in each ear, performed and backed by research and results.
American doctor Michael Smith founded NADA (National Acupuncture Detoxification Association) during the ‘80s and this technique (Acudetox) can only be performed by a certified auricular acupuncture practitioner.
Acudetox is a form of alternative medicine.
Based on the idea that the ear is a micro-system which reflects the entire body, it is represented on the auricle – the outer portion of the ear. Conditions affecting the physical, mental or emotional health of the patient are assumed to be treatable by stimulation of the surface of the ear exclusively. The NADA five-point protocol serves to balance the body’s energy and assist the body’s healing processes. The benefits of the treatments are immediate, tangible and apparent, even to someone that is doing it for the first time. Acudetox is effective regardless of the client’s level of motivation and tends to increase the client’s readiness and willingness to participate in the treatment. It has become one of the most effective ways of removing toxins from the human body. Regular Acudetox sessions will assist with optimal wellbeing, weight loss support and stress management, detoxification and healing. Each patient’s case is unique and treatment durations will differ. The Acudetox is a 30- to 60-minute non-verbal treatment. Soft music will play in the background and the patient will have time just to ‘be’ in their own zone.
A bit more about the ear acupuncture points and what they do:
Shenmen: Used for calming and relaxing.
The Shenmen point grounds and calms the body, thus putting the individual into a state of receptivity for treatment. It helps alleviate anxiety, depression, cravings, sleeplessness, body aches and pains.
Sympathetic (sympathetic nervous system): Used for relieving tension and pain.
Relaxing the sympathetic nervous system (our fight or flight response) allows its counterpart, the parasympathetic system (our ability to relax), to predominate. Treating the sympathetic point helps the entire body relax.
Kidney: Used to strengthen the willpower, release fears and release unwanted toxins.
The kidney is the organ that encapsulates the person’s constitution/genetic inheritance as well as the state of one’s current health. It is useful in all chronic problems. A healthy kidney keeps a person balanced physically and psychologically. The kidney governs all the developmental life phases, from conception through puberty and adulthood to menopause and ageing.
Liver: Used to detoxify by removing the chemical residues in the body from drugs, alcohol and other environmental toxins.
Our liver is the source of our ability to adapt and grow into our environment. It helps us manifest our own sense of direction and purpose and to be fully present with the people in our lives. A healthy liver is associated with more easily resolving anger, frustration, depression and keeping both the emotions and the body’s systems moving smoothly.
Lungs: Used to help respiration, release sadness and grief, as well as for detoxification.
Stimulating lung point helps strengthen one’s immune system and helps protect the body from disease. It also helps with breathing ailments caused by smoking, colds, flu and asthma. The lung point helps the body excrete alcohol and other drugs.
In addition to Acudetox, we also offer Magnotherapy for the treatment of ADHD, stress or trauma release and smoking cessation. Magnotherapy is the practice of placing small magnets in very specific acupuncture points on each ear. The best-case scenario is to complement the treatment by using Acudetox, with five needles inserted into various points in the ear.
We have found that wellness days at schools and corporate groups have exceptional positive results and that people concentrate better, work more efficiently in a shorter time period and are less tired after treatment. Stress levels are reduced in the environment the client is in. More smiles and fewer health issues are a great return for all human beings. Rehab centres, prisons, clinics, hospitals all benefit from these treatments and there are amazing case studies that have been done in the USA on these facilities.
The above clearly indicates why this is a great investment in yourself.
