Acupuncture for Addiction
Acudetox protocol started as anesthesia for cingulatomy in China, then later was used to treat acute symptoms of withdrawal. Long term treatment has been shown to avoid relapse, especially for those who have been through treatment multiple times.
During an acupuncture procedure for addiction, an introduction of filament causes microinjury which triggers release of endorphin. Endorphins sedate the patient and quell acute withdrawal symptoms. Sedation puts the patient in parasympathic or rest mode and thus ulearns the behavior of the craving mechanism.
