Particularly a standardized protocol developed by the National Acupuncture Detoxification Association (NADA) (acudetox.com) that includes a reduction in pain and regulation of kidneys, liver, lung, and nervous system.
Neurofeedback or cranial electrical stimulation. Neurofeedback uses electrical feedback programming between a computer or other specialized equipment and the brain while cranial electrical stimulation (CES) uses low level alternating current directed from a CES machine into the brain from probes placed on ear lobes. The goal of both systems is to eliminate pain, attention deficit or hyperactivity, anxiety, symptoms of post-traumatic stress, drug cravings, and other brain-based disorders
Using the power of suggestion to strengthen a person’s willpower, rewrite conditioning, and thereby help overcome addictive thoughts and behaviors.
