Detox Protocol

Safety Bulletin: Click here

British Columbia Centre on Substance Use Recommendations:

Avoid the use of detoxification and withdrawal management from opioids as a standalone treatment. Individuals who relapse following withdrawal management are at an increase risk of overdose as a result of rapid loss of tolerance to opioids. A slow taper with adequate professional, social, and if available, family support is recommended.

Tools for Administering

Essential Tools for Administering
Bio-electrode Therapy


ELECTRODES:

 

Option 1—Sakamura Magrain Ion Pellets

The Magrain Ion Pellets are ideal as Bio-electrodes. Simply apply the tiny gold and silver electrodes according to the protocols. 

The Magrain electrodes are on precut clear adhesive tape for convenient, fast, easy application and remain secured to the acupuncture points for long periods. Clean the skin with an alcohol swab prior to applying electrodes. The Magrain Ion electrodes are my preferred method for securing the electrodes and can be purchased on the internet direct from the manufacturer.  

 

NOTE: Since these pellets are smaller in diameter than either the ink or the DIY metal electrodes discs (see below), more attention to the accurate placement on the acupuncture points is required.

Option 2—Copper and Silver Electrode Inks
 

These electrodes are pure copper and pure silver particles suspended in a water base. Use alcohol swabs to clean the acupuncture points. Dipstick applicators (one for the copper ink solution and one for silver) are used for stirring and applying the ink solutions. The New Skin liquid bandage is required to cover and secure the copper and silver electrodes to the acupuncture points.

Other tools for ease of use

NEW SKIN LIQUID BANDAGE AND POLYURATHANE MEDICAL TAPE:

IMG_3174.JPG

New Skin Liquid Bandage is useful for securing silver ink electrodes on the ears, hands, fingers and toes.  

  • Clean acupuncture points with an alcohol swab.

  • Brush on a small amount of New Skin to cover the electrodes and allow to dry.

  • Apply an additional coat of New Skin later in the day to secure the electrodes for longer periods.  

Polyurethane Film (PU film) tape is a useful adjunctive adhesive tape for securing the electrodes to the hands and soles of the feet and can be purchased online. 

These adhesives are waterproof, breathable, transparent, and almost invisible. They will secure the electrodes on all the points for about 24 hours and longer.
