The French physician, Dr. Paul Nogier, developed this special form of acupuncture in the 1950’s. He discovered that the surface of the outer ear (Auricle) is a reflex area on which all parts of the body are represented.
By examining individual reflex zones on the ear it is possible to identify precisely where in the body pain is located- or which of the organs are affected if the origin of pain is unclear. Certain Disturbances in the body which can delay, or even prevent, the healing process can also be located. At first glance, such a focus has nothing to do with the disease process itself and is often not even noticed by the patient. However, these foci can have such a negative effect on the body that it becomes prone to falling ill. In addition, they can prevent a preexisting disease from responding to conventional therapies so that the body cannot get rid of it.
Focal Disturbances may Originate in dead or putrid teeth, Chronically inflamed maxillary sinuses, inflamed tonsils , and all other inflammations. Every scar may develop into a focus, but it does not necessarily do so. By Examining the ear reflex zones, a physician can determine very precisely whether any scare (and which one) has become a focus He/She can also determine whether there is an inflammation or toxic load somewhere in the body (e.g., Mercury load due to amalgam fillings)
The Importance of Focal disturbances
Successful healing will only be possible if existing disturbances are also treated. At first glance, focal disturbances seem to have nothing in common with the disease process itself. Still, they can affect the body in a negative way so that the body's own defenses are weakened. The person easily falls ill or is unable to overcome an already existing illness. Possibly the body no longer responds to conventional therapeutic measures.
Examination is carried out by measuring the voltage differences on the ear surface. Individual ear points that represent specific parts of the body are checked for electrical changes. Thus, the auricle can be regarded as the body's own diagnostic center because an ear point corresponding to a body part can only be detected when the part in question is disturbed. For example, an electrical shange at the liver point on the ear indicates a disturbance of the liver.
Treatment is performed by needling the respective points on the ear and treated with laser.
All signals induced by ear acupuncture travel through a specific part of the brain, the diencephalon, to the corresponding body parts. The body parts strictly obey their commands because they come straight from the brain. Thus, ear acupuncture takes advantage of the human body’s own control center, namely, the brain.
All diseases that can be traced back to a disturbed (rather than destroyed) organ function can be treated by ear and body acupuncture: migraine, insomnia, depression, addictions, indigestion, autonomic symptoms, rheumatism, and most conditions of pain (such as tennis elbow, pain in the shoulder, back pain , neck – Shoulder pain)
Some patients feel immediately relieved, others need several days (About four to five treatments) before they notice an improvement some people feel as if they were walking on air after the treatment, and almost all feel relaxed afterward.
Of course, it is impossible to treat destroyed structures, such as a tooth destroyed by caries. Likewise, a hip joint disease cannot be undone. However, acupuncture treatment can increase the blood flow to the joints and thus alleviate the pain. Acupuncture cannot dissolve biliary or renal stones nor can it heal a fractured bone, but it can alleviate pain after surgery.
Body acupuncture and ear acupuncture are both effective forms of treatment and do not have any risks or side effects, provided they are performed properly. However, they should only be performed in connection with clinical diagnostic procedures carried out by a physician.
Laser ear acupuncture
Laser acupuncture is an equivalent to needle treatment.
A laser is a device that produces light in only one direction, with only one wavelength, and with all rays leaving the laser at the same time. Laser light is therefore parallel, monochromatic, and coherent. Laser light also differs from natural light by its extreme intensity a laser can produce visible light infrared light.
When the laser beam falls on the skin, some of its energy is passed on to the cells. This effect is used to influence acupuncture points and reflex zones, and even focal disturbances in the body, lasers with specific, specially tested resonance frequencies are also used for diagnostic purposes.
Acupuncture points are connected by the energy pathways called “meridians” if the energy flowing along these pathways is in equilibrium, the organism is healthy. Any imbalance or blockage of energy leads to illness in the end. The disease can manifest itself at a site of the body that is very different from that of the existing disturbance. The energy flow can be restored by adjusting the energy at the disturbed acupuncture points with a laser beam.
Depending on the findings of the examination, the ear points are treated with laser light of specific frequencies until the energy balance is restored. Like needle acupuncture, the laser treatment should be repeated several times until stabilization of the body is achieved.
