The Amazing Science of Auriculotherapy Pain Relief, Smoking Cessation, Weight Loss and the Healing of 350 Diseases through Ear Acupressure © Copyright 2011 Think-Outside-the-Book Publishing, LLC All Rights Reserved Introduction Auriculotherapy (aw-RIK-ulo-therapy), also called auricular therapy, is a branch of alternative medicine that has its roots in Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM). It is a state-of-the-art therapy for the treatment of over 350 diseases, and is a clinical science recognized by the World Health Organization and approved by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA). One of the core principles of this healing technology is that the outer portion of the ear (i.e., the auricle) is a microsystem that represents every part of the human body. In other words, every point of the outer ear corresponds to, and is associated with, a specific part of the human anatomy. Whereas general body acupuncture addresses health problems by working on the energy meridians of the body, auriculotherapy is based on nerve connections (in the human nervous system) and offers specific localized treatment for the organs or systems involved in the health problem. Auriculotherapy has been used successfully for ... ● smoking cessation ● allergies ● weight loss ● pain relief (including back pain, headaches, neck pain, sciatica pain, radiating pain to arms or legs) ● sexual stimulation (increasing sexual arousal) ● sexual suppression (decreasing sexual arousal) ● hypertension ● stress relief ● insomnia ● immune response against infection ● depression and other mental disorders ● recovery from paralysis ● sleep apnea ● nausea ● sinusitis ● bronchitis ● cold and flu symptoms ● gastrointestinal disorders such as Crohn’s disease ● the correction of imbalances in the body ... and a wide variety of health conditions originating from every bodily system. For many people, auriculotherapy is also the treatment of choice for eliminating addictive behaviors including alcohol and drug abuse (street and recreational drugs), attention deficit disorder, obsessive-compulsive disorder, and even gambling. . Auriculotherapy is similar to ear acupuncture but instead of using needles, a microcurrent stimulator is placed on reflex points on the outer ear. These points then send a message to the brain based on the location of the reflex point being treated. This book will present various modes of auriculotherapy administration, including sonopuncture (ultrasound), laser therapy, electro-acupuncture and piezo electric acupuncture stimulator. However, the main focus will be on administering auriculotherapy through ear acupressure (also called ear reflexology). This will enable you to employ the do-it-yourself approach at home. Ear acupressure is a method that requires the use of your fingers (or simple paraphernalia, such as herbal beads, pellets or a blunt wand) to apply pressure on the reflex points (also referred to as auricular points). Although this method is very simple, it can nonetheless, help you experience the therapeutic benefits mentioned above – without needles, micro-current, special equipment, or a visit to a health practitioner who specializes in auriculotherapy. History of Auriculotherapy "The ear is the place where all the acupuncture channels meet." -- Nei Ching, the Yellow Emperors' Classic of Internal Medicine The earliest written records of ear acupuncture date back to the Yellow Emperor's Classic of Internal Medicine, which mentions specific acupuncture points on the external ear used for the relief of certain medical disorders. Even prior to such written texts, medical treatments using auricular stimulation had already been employed in ancient Egypt, Greece, Rome and Persia. It wasn’t until the 1950s, however, that the specific ear points were mapped out as a complete therapeutic system. Dr. Paul Nogier, a French physicist from Lyon, France was the first to observe that the structure of the ear appeared to be a mirror image of an inverted human fetus -- that is, the ear is a microcosmic representation of the entire body. As such, the ear lobe, which is the lowest part of the outer ear, represents the head, and with this as a reference point, one can identify the corresponding anatomical parts accordingly. For example, the knee, corresponds precisely with the fetal representation of the knee in the auricle, and so does the torso, internal organs, neurological systems and extremities. Thus, one could treat various areas of the body through their corresponding points in the ear. Indeed, a large number of points have been identified on the outer ear which have been observed to become spontaneously tender (or have morphological or coloration reactions) to the presence of disease or injury elsewhere in the body. It was observed that there was a consistency in the tenderness, morphological or color
