On this episode of RecoveryPeople, Certified Acudetox Specialist and Licensed Chemical Dependency Counselor, Lou Detwiler sends Co-hosts Sandy Hollier, Kirk Zajac and Jason Howell into the land of bliss and relaxation by placing acupuncture needles in their ears at five specific points as per the National Acupuncture Detoxification Association (NADA) protocol. In the context of addiction treatment, Acudetox, also known as auricular detox (auricular meaning of or relating to the ear) can be traced back to the 1970s, but acupuncture is a Traditional Chinese Medicine (Eastern Medicine) modality that can be traced back for centuries. Acudetox is safe, can be applied in a wide range of settings and is extremely inexpensive. This makes it a very affordable modality that people can use to support their recovery and wellness.
Lou talks about the numerous benefits of acudetox and how Acupuncturist Without Borders have responded to traumatic events around the world from the 911 attack to the earthquake in Haiti.
About half way through the show, the group takes a break to receive acudetox and then comes back to share their experiences with the audience. The marked change in their voices is noticeable. Check out facebook.com/recoverypeople for more pix and videos from the episode.
