Lend Me Your Ear — Treating the Body with Auricular Therapy

Got pain? Trying to lose weight? Have the hiccups? Auricular Therapy, a form of acupressure or acupuncture, provides a scientifically verified means of identifying areas of pain, muscular skeletal disorders and a broad range of medical conditions in the body by observing and mapping the ear. The specific locations that are “mapped” then can be used clinically to relieve pain and pathology in the body through the use of electrical nerve stimulation or by the placement of needles in the appropriate areas. This alternative medicine can also be effective in the struggle to lose weight, in that it can reduce food cravings, control appetite and help strengthen will power. Auricular Therapy is based upon the work pioneered by Dr. Paul Nogier in France. The Clinic’s founder, Dr. Hugh Riordan, learned the technique of auricular diagnoses and treatment from Dr. Nogier himself, 25 years ago. Passed on to Dr. Hunninghake, this therapy is one of many unique therapies offered at the Riordan Clinic. Dr. Hunninghake will discuss Auricular Therapy, its background, the technique used at the clinic, and the medical conditions that can be eased with this treatment.

How Vitamin C Fights Cancer

Vitamin C is commonly understood to be an antioxidant. The National Institutes of Health has replicated research done at The Center for the Improvement of Human Functioning which shows that very high blood levels of vitamin C can act as a pro-drug that forms hydrogen peroxide at doses lethal to cancer cells. This pro-oxidant effect is best achieved by intravenous administration of vitamin C. New findings suggest that high oral doses of vitamin C used in conjunction with “redox cyclers” may support and enhance the effect of IVC against cancer.

Using Light as a Natural Antibiotic

When medicines have failed, this therapy has helped thousands! Early this year, the Riordan Clinic introduced a safe and natural therapy called Ultraviolet Blood Irradiation (UBI). This is a closed-loop system that safely exposes a small amount of the patient’s blood to germicidal ultraviolet light rays. Blood-borne pathogens in the light-treated blood are killed or inactivated. These neutralized pathogens then act as antigens which trigger a natural vaccination-like response by the patient’s own immune system. In essence, ultraviolet light used in this way helps the body create its own antibiotic response to any chronic infection the patient may be harboring. Our patients have already reported many great successes with this therapy. The Riordan Clinic notes a number of non-infectious conditions that UBI may also be used for with significant benefits.

Natural Solutions to Infertility

Over the past few decades, infertility issues have increased dramatically in our country. According to 2002 CDC statistics, 7.3 million or 11.8% of women of childbearing age were shown to have received some sort of infertility services. How can this diagnosis be treated without aggressive prescription drugs? The natural approach to fertility has been very successful, largely because fertility is multi-factorial, meaning that there are many elements that can be at the root of your fertility problems. In this lecture, Dr. Kaumeyer will explore treating infertility naturally with proper diet, specific herbals, and supplements.

Folk Remedies

Folk remedies (or home remedies) are commonly found in all cultures. Some are bizarre, though most are very practical and have stood the test of time.

Do folk remedies reveal something about the body’s ability to heal that is largely ignored by modern technological medicine? Dr. Ron speaks about an array of common folk remedies and asks key questions to help the audience decide for themselves whether or not to make good use of safe folk remedies.
