Auriculotherapy is a treatment that comes from acupuncture- a Chinese treatment which requires putting needles on ears and other parts of human’s body. Its origin is very uncertain, thanks to the thousands of theories that have declared the specialists, but it is known that it comes from the east. Also, many people as well as specialists in the subject have declared the ineffective function of this therapy, due to the lack of studies and biological bases.
This peculiar therapy can be used in many diseases, such as acute diseases, intense migraines, or in chronic diseases such as asthma and anxiety. The specialists recommend that this therapy is not used on people who ingest psychotropic drugs, since otherwise the effect would be null or low, just as when using therapy it is important that no physical or mental effort is made, because it will have the same result as people who take psychoactive drug treatment.
