Auricular Acupuncture NADA Protocol - Healing Approach for Addictions

The National Acupuncture Detoxification Association (NADA) protocol is commonly used to help with addictions, behavioural health, mental health, emotional trauma, and stress.

NADA, from Spanish, means nothing, no-nonsense, non-verbal, no-drugs, and no barriers.

This healing approach involves using acupuncture needles or ear seeds on a specific set of Meridian points on the ear. The five Meridian points are:

Both manual needling and ear seed application on these points are known to effectively benefit through:

  1. Reducing alcohol and drugs cravings - including cigarettes and nicotine

  2. Lessening withdrawal symptoms

  3. Recovering from trauma or natural disasters

  4. Relieving stress and agitation

  5. Promoting better sleep and peace of mind

A typical timeline of this protocol involves having the treatment for 1 hour per day, for 5 days a week, and over a total of 13 weeks. Studies show that the effectiveness of this protocol is at ~80%.
