The thing is that many people believe that alcohol can never be cured and others believe the opposite. However, the thing is that addictions are not usually the problem. There are usually many underlying factors that cause the addiction. A wise woman once said, “An addiction is just a symptom of problems that aren’t being seen or taken care of.” This just goes to show you that if you can treat the problems that are causing the addiction then you can overcome the addiction itself. There are many ways to treat your addiction and something that has been studied to do so is the use of acupuncture.
What does acupuncture do for you?
Acupuncture is considered to be a holistic treatment for many things. When acupuncture is being done, the needles are put into the body to change the energy level of the body. There are things called energy channels that run through the body that are found in various places such as the ears, the back, the feet and other places too. The best type of acupuncture to get in recovery is ear acupuncture because there are five ear points that can help you when the needles are inserted while you are trying to overcome an addiction.
What is the Sympathetic Point in your ear?
One of the first points in your ear is the Sympathetic Point. This point joins your parasympathetic and your sympathetic nervous systems together and it provides a type of analgesic powerful effect. This can help you to feel less pain and feel more relaxed.
What is the Shenmen point in your ear?
Another point of your ear is the Shenmen Point. This point is also considered to be the Spirit Gate. When the needle is administered to this point it helps to relax and calm the body and the mind. You can relieve stress, nervousness and anxiety with this point. These are some of the things you may experience during the withdrawal period.

What is the Kidney Point in your ear?

What is the Liver Point in your ear?
The fourth point in your ear is called the Liver Point. During acupuncture on this point, you are helping to bring healthiness back to the liver after it has been abused by drugs and/or alcohol. Using this point with acupuncture can also help to relieve any anger that you may be feeling when trying to overcome an addiction as well.
What is the Lung Point in your ear?
The fifth and final point in your ear is the Lung Point. When the needle is administered to this point in the ear during acupuncture it helps to build back up your immune system and it helps to detoxify the body faster too.
