[CASE] Mild Alcohol Addiction
The patient is a 36 year-old male presented with mild alcohol addiction. He can’t help but drink at least 3 bottles of beer a day. He also has depression, low energy, poor concentration in the afternoon and seasonal allergy.
The acupuncture treatment included Individual Acupuncture Treatment for Adult to strengthen his Liver energy, treatment for addiction, and symptomatic treatment for seasonal allergy when the symptom showed up.
His desire to drink gradually decreased and from around 10th treatment, he didn’t need to drink even in social settings.
His emotion became stable and happy, energy became higher and his concentration in the afternoon was back.
When he was suffering from seasonal allergy symptoms such as sneezing, runny nose, the treatment to control the symptoms were added.
At the 14th treatment, the course of treatments for alcohol addiction was finished.
He didn’t have any pressure-pain points on his body when I checked his body, so I didn’t address removing the painful points. Instead, I tried to improve the flow of his energy.
I used ear acupuncture points for addiction. I left needles on those points for about 30 minutes, so while I was treating his back, the needles were retained on his ears. I also used one or two press-balls on his ear.
There was up and down about the amount of alcohol, but it gradually decreased and his urge to drink was gradually lost as well.
His mood became stable and he seldom felt depressed.
The symptoms of addiction like smoking, alcohol or other mental problems like anxiety, light depression seem like decreasing and being controlled after 10 treatments or 3 months of treatments.
