NADA Acudetox Protocol
The NADA Acudetox protocol was developed at Lincoln Hospital in New York City between 1973 -1975, during a heroin epidemic, and has been used since then to treat addictions of all kinds. NADA is also used to treat symptoms of stress, anxiety, depression, and help recovery from trauma and disasters.
The NADA protocol uses ear acupuncture technique at 5 specific points on the ear that are known to promote wellness, inner peace, and lessen withdrawal symptoms. It has been found to be helpful to decrease craving and anxiety, improve sleep, reduce agitation, sweating, nausea, diarrhea and irritability.
Treatment usually lasts 30-45 minutes. The NADA protocol is used in at least 42 countries worldwide.
Even patients timid of needles can tolerate the tiny, fine acupuncture needles used in NADA, or the simple seeds and beads that can be used for acupressure on the NADA ear points.
