NADA stands for the National Acupuncture Detoxification Association. The NADA Protocol is the name for the specific Acupuncture treatment of addictions using Auricular (Ear) Acupuncture points.

It was first discovered in 1972 by Hong Kong neurosurgeon, Dr. H.L. Wen.

Dr. Wen used Acupuncture for analgesic purposes, but he noted that it decreased opium withdrawal and cravings.

By 1974, Dr. Wen was using the auricular treatment on different people suffering from various addictions. Soon methadone was dropped as the NADA protocol was adopted for heroin treatment.

Can you, or someone you know, benefit from an all natural holistic addiction treatment?
