Author: Raphael Nogier
The continuation of Paul Nogier's findings Auriculotherapy is based on proven correspondences between locations on the external ear and the internal organs and systems of the body. The ear acts like an input/output terminal in direct contact with the central nervous system. Information on viscerosomatic states can be accessed via visual clues, skin electro-conductivity, and pressure sensitivity at specific points. The first part of Raphael Nogier's Auriculotherapy shows how acupuncture needles are used in sophisticated and powerful therapeutic interventions. The second part introduces the principles and practice of auriculomedicine, a true frequency medicine that evolved from Dr. Paul Nogier's auriculotherapy, his discovery of the VAS (Vascular Autonomic Signal) in the pulse and his consequent observations of the diagnostic and therapeutic properties of radiant light frequencies on the skin. The material presented here builds on and updates the work of the author's father, Dr. Paul Nogier, who scientifically explored and charted the auricular microsystems in the 1950s. A serviceable, contemporary work for students of acupuncture as well as practitioners, offering clear and practical information to be applied directly for the benefit of patients.

Auriculotherapy Manual: Chinese and Western Systems of Ear Acupuncture provides a comprehensive guide to the practice of Chinese and Western systems of ear acupuncture. This impressive new edition utilizes 3-D models of the external ear, as well as 3-D anatomical images, to demonstrate the somatotopic relationship between particular parts of the body and specific regions of the auricle. This is the first ear acupuncture text that has incorporated 3-D technology in order to present amazing images of the auricle which precisely indicate ear acupoint positions. The book offers in-depth evaluation of the theoretical and clinical underpinnings of auriculotherapy, describing and illustrating over 200 ear acupuncture points and more than 200 auriculotherapy treatment protocols for clinical discorders ranging from chronic pain to substance abuse to visceral and neurological disorders. There are an expanded number of auricular landmarks that are utilized to guide the practitioner in accurately determining the precise location of hidden ear points on the 3-D model. These landmarks further reveal the varied depth perspectives of the external ear. The ear reflex points presented in this manual are based upon systematic research conducted at the UCLA Pain Management Center and upon the extensive clinical findings of medical doctors and acupuncturists in China and Europe over the past 50 years. Scientific and clinical information from the most recent international symposia of auricular acupuncture have been used to update the scientific and clinical knowledge presented in this fourth edition. Each chapter is organized in same basic order, beginning with an introductory overview, progressing to the main topics in the chapter, and ending with a section listing a definition of terms and a set of preparatory sample questions. The book is concise and clear enough for students yet provides provides sophisticated clinical approaches to allow the experienced practitioner to enhance and complement their existing treatment strategies.

Publisher: Innovations and Informations, Eric Serejski
Auriculotherapy is a form of acupuncture that focuses on the use of the ear as a localized reflex system connected to the central nervous system. It refers to stimulation of specific points on the auricle of the external ear for the diagnosis and treatment of health conditions in other parts of the body. Stimulation of the points can be achieved using several different methods such as: manual pressure; acupuncture needles; electrical stimulation; lasers; magnets; and ear pellets/seeds.

Alternative medicine (AM) is hugely popular; about 40% of the US general population have used at least one type of alternative treatment in the past year, and in Germany this figure is around 70%. The money spent on AM is considerable: the global market is expected to reach nearly US $ 200 billion by 2025, with most of these funds coming directly out of consumers’ pockets. The reasons for this popularity are complex, but misinformation is certainly a prominent factor. The media seem to have an insatiable appetite for the subject and often report uncritically on it. Misinformation about AM on the Internet (currently about 50 million websites are focused on AM) is much more the rule than the exception. Consumers are thus being bombarded with misinformation on AM, and they are ill-protected from such misinformation and therefore prone to making wrong, unwise or dangerous therapeutic decisions, endangering their health and wasting their money. This book is a reference text aimed at guiding consumers through the maze of AM. The concept of the book is straightforward. It has two main parts. The first, short section provides essential background on AM, explaining in simple terms what is (and what is not) good, reliable evidence, and addressing other relevant issues like, for instance, the placebo response, informed consent, integrative medicine, etc. The second and main part consists of 150 short chapters, topically grouped and each dedicated to one single alternative therapeutic or diagnostic method. In each of them, seven critical points are raised. These points relate to issues that are important for consumers’ decisions whether it is worth trying the method in question. Restricting the discussion to just seven points means that issues must be prioritized to those themes which are most relevant in the context of each given modality.

Treatment was done on one ear at a time. The experimental objects were replaced every second day. Participants were assessed at baseline and after completion of the four-week treatment course.
Abstract: Background: Lower urinary tract symptoms, which commonly occur among older men, include urinary retention, voiding difficulty, frequent feeling of urinary urgency, and nocturia. Auriculotherapy, a Chinese medicine approach, is a therapeutic method in which specific points in the auricle are stimulated to achieve specific therapeutic purposes. This randomised controlled pilot study aimed to determine whether magneto-auriculotherapy alone or in combination with laser auriculotherapy is more effective than placebo for symptom relief and enhancement of quality of life. Methods: Men aged at least 60 years with an International Prostate Symptom Score of 12 or greater (moderate to severe) were recruited from a residential home in Zhengzhou province, China. We recruited 40 men and randomly allocated to three groups decided by computer-generated randomised table: Group 1, combined auriculotherapy (laser auriculotherapy followed by magneto-auriculotherapy on six auricular points, N=14); Group 2, magneto-auriculotherapy only (placebo laser auriculotherapy followed by magneto-auriculotherapy, N=13); and control (placebo laser auriculotherapy followed by placebo magneto-auriculotherapy, N=13). To achieve the effect of evaluator blinding, another researcher who did not know the type of treatment modality received by the participants evaluated the treatment effect. Treatment was done on one ear at a time. The experimental objects were replaced every second day. Participants were assessed at baseline and after completion of the four-week treatment course. Outcome measures included International Prostate Symptom Score (IPSS); Quality of life due to urinary symptoms (0=delighted to 6=terrible); maximum urinary flow rate (Qmax per second); post-void residual urine test (mL); and Pittsburgh sleep quality index. This trial is registered atClinicalTrials.gov, numberNCT02330107 Ethical approval was obtained from the Human Research Ethics Review Committee, The Hong Kong Polytechnic University. Findings: The mean age of participants was 74·90 years [SD 6·30], with a mean duration of lower urinary tract symptoms of 4·89 years [SD 5·08]. In Group 1, improvements were seen from baseline in lower urinary tract symptoms (mean 20·50 [SD 7·44] vs 13·08 [8·28], p=0·028), quality of life (4·64 [0·50] vs 3·17 [1·53], p=0·016), post-void residual urine (190·43 [117·20] vs 106·75 [79·72] mL, p=0·019) and sleep quality (7·86 [4·58] vs 2·92 [2·58], p=0·009). For patients in Group 2, significant improvement was noted from baseline in lower urinary tract symptoms (20·54 [7·86] vs 13·92 [6·76], p=0·007), quality of life (4·38 [1·19] vs 3·46 [1·33], p=0·01), and sleep quality (mean 8·46 [2·93] vs 5·08 [2·96]). Although patients in the control group also reported improvement in lower urinary tract symptoms (26·08 [8·14] vs 19·00 [8·29], p=0·003) and sleep quality (mean 7·38 [4·79] vs 4·75 [4·09], p=0·008), no significant differences were found for quality of life (4·54 [0·66] vs 4·42 [0·79], p=0·739) or post-void residual urine (157·08 [90·98] vs 158·33 [124·08] mL, p=0·583). We found no effect on Qmax in any group. No adverse events were reported. Interpretation: Magneto-auriculotherapy alone or in combination with laser auriculotherapy can improve lower urinary tract symptoms, quality of life, and sleep quality in men aged 60 years or older with lower urinary tract symptoms. Future studies with a larger sample size could be done to investigate a causal relationship between treatment and effect.
