If you need help, we can employ auriculo-therapy which is a physical therapy modality used in addictive disease. This therapy consists of specific micro-electrical currents which are directed to isolated points on the ear which triggers the release of pituitary hormones (endorphins) which is thought to alter simulative physiological brain pathways.
Effects Of Auricular Therapy On Drug Addictions
It has been found that by stimulating these acupuncture points in the ear, you could enhance what is known as an “award cascade” effect from the limbic system. This re-balances an addict’s chemistry. It can change the addiction from an overwhelming compulsion to a manageable situation which the patient can then eliminate. Certainly, many drug addicts would give anything to rid themselves of their habits – but that over-whelming compulsion to use the drug is more than they can overcome. Thus, this help is a wonderful asset to the addict on a physiological level.
It is through this mechanism that a person is able to break the addictive habits of smoking, alcohol, drugs, etc.
