Healing Chronic Pain Holistically: Acupuncture without Needles
In this follow-up article, I’d like to share a pill-free, drug-free pain relief modality that works like acupuncture without needles. Acupuncture has been used for thousands of years to heal various ailments and is very popular today in the relief of pain. Acupuncture uses thin sterile needles placed in specific “acupuncture points” on the body in order to increase the flow of energy in the acupuncture channels called meridians.
Approximately seven years ago, while on my own personal healing journey, I discovered infrared phototherapy patches that worked like acupuncture for relieving pain. Although very “high tech” and not very well-known in America, I was intrigued enough with my own pain relief results that I agreed to be a principle investigator for a double-blind placebo-controlled study with over 100 people to verify whether these patches really worked. Well, we found out that they do indeed work.
In fact, there have been over 60+ studies from around the world documenting that these “light” patches work, not only in pain, but also in stress relief and anti-aging. Because they are drug-free and they use infra-red light to open energy blockages, they are much safer than drugs like ibuprofen, steroids or acetaminophen, all of which can have serious side effects. I was so impressed with my personal results and the results from my medical practice, I decided to include them in my business and train folks from around the world how to use these nifty drug-free devices.
In Part 1, I showed you how to use the Y-Age Aeon light patches to balance the nervous system using my Brain Balancing Protocol. Sometimes just using this patch, which also dramatically reduces inflammation, reduces pain without having to use the actual pain relief patches called IceWave. That’s what happened to Stephanie S. who read Part 1 of this article, tried the Y-Age Aeon anti-stress patches, and had a dramatic reduction in her fibromyalgia pain symptoms.
The IceWave patches consist of two patches, a white and a tan, both with opposite polarities. I recommend initially using the Clock (also known as the Haltiwanger Cross) Protocol to relieve localized pain (pain located in one major area of the body). Watch the video below to learn how to use the Clock Protocol. You can use this protocol with any localized pain area. Remember that for these patches to work, you need to be well hydrated. Eighty percent of people get at least 50% reduction in pain within a few minutes of using this protocol. For those that don’t, it may be necessary to add a Y-Age Aeon patch behind the right ear, or try a more advanced pain relief protocol.
If you have the Y-Age Aeon patches but not the IceWave patches, you can also use my localized pain relief “shortcut” protocol below:
If you have pain in more than one area of your body, you may require the whole body pain relief protocol which requires two sets of IceWave patches. I find that this protocol works extremely well for pain that feels like you’ve been hit by a truck — which is how I felt when I had fibromyalgia years ago. Even though this video is a little dated, this protocol is very popular and works well with most people:
If you have acute or chronic pain and are tired of being offered drugs or pills, it is well worth your time to try the IceWave patches for pain. When purchased through an official distributor, you have a 30 day money-back guarantee if they don’t work for you.
