  • My experience with acudetox therapy


    I've experienced several acudetox treatments myself and felt immediate benefits with relaxation and better sleep. As a therapist I noticed that most of my patients also experienced a release of tension and feeling more relaxed, and most of them reported improved sleep. Most of them were also eager to continue with repeated treatments.

    I highly recommend Warren's course. Acudetox is not only an effective treatment for recovery from addictions and managing cravings but has had a wonderful calming effect on my clients. Its effective in treating many other illnesses such as resolving general body pains, behavioural disorders such as depression, ADHD and general stress and anxiety. Warren is passionate about what he does and is a great support.

    I am so happy that I chose this protocol. 5 little needles are changing so many peoples lifes. The training was easy and the info shared by Warren was more than expected. Results achieved are WOW! I am working with general detox / destress. I have clients who suffered from depression, bi-polar and multiple sclerosis... now they are living again. The symptoms and pain is so much better. Below are just an example of a MS client and the progress in 4 mths.
