Medical Minute with Dr. Chris: Acupuncture Happy Hour
My name is Chris from Sophia Natural Health Center. This week on “Medical Minute,” we will be going over our Acupuncture Happy Hour program at SOPHIA. This is a program we host every Tuesday from 5-7pm. Within this program, we use the NADA protocol or ear acupuncture which consists of 5 points per ear.
Through the Yale Psychiatric Medical Center, they found that the NADA protocol helps produce markers that help reduce endogenous hormones like opioids or pain killers. It also releases the hormones that support wellbeing. Through additional research, the NADA protocol has been used for PTSD, depression, anxiety and many different types of addictions.
