This is a continuation of firsts for CIAM, which has been the only institution in the world to off...

Observing and Using Auricular Visual Markers in Patients with COVID-19

Observing and Using Auricular Visual Markers in Patients with COVID-19

Using auricular causative diagnosis, researchers at the Scientific Acupuncture Department of the Paris XI University have identified an auricular visual marker (AVM) for COVID-19 that corresponds with the Interferon point.  The AVM, observed as an edema, is present within the entire area between the tragus and the ascending branch of the helix on patients with COVID-19. Volf, and her team at the Scientific Acupuncture Department, noted that “In more-severe clinical COVID-19 cases the edema o...

Relationship of Governor Vessel 20-24 to Our Constitution

Relationship of Governor Vessel 20-24 to Our Constitution

The work of Dr. med. Frank Bahr has shown the Cranial region between Governor Vessel 20-24 (in German, Lenkergefäß, or LG) is especially important for our constitution, and in turn, our future. This relationship coincides with the names of GV 20 and GV 24, respectively known in Traditional Chinese Acupuncture as Baihui or "Master of Spiritual Energy“ and Shenting or "Divine Area." GV 20 also overlaps with the highest Indian Chakra, "Sahasrara" known as the Crown Chakra. Points GV 20 and GV 24...

CIAM’s highly endorsed core curriculum is helping lead the understanding of auricular methods for powerful insights into the human system.

Integrate Auricular!

An auricular approach can offer powerful insight into what ails the entire body. CIAM graduates are using auricular insights to prioritize treatment approaches and break through the walls presented by their most challenging cases. Auricular Medicine, because of its basis in neurology- and frequency-based concepts, supports insight for treatment options in challenging cases such as therapy resistant patients.

Current and ongoing research in neuroscience, vagus nerve stimulation, heart rate variability as a critical biomarker, neuro-auricular acupuncture, medical frequencies (i.e. electromagnetic waves, frequency-specific micro currents, pulsed low level laser) is proving auricular medicine as a growth field — and continuously advances the field.
