Bio-electrode Therapy is a non-invasive, non-pharmaceutical treatment method for relieving opioid withdrawal, assisting with relapse prevention and many types of pain. By integrating the Western science of electrophysiology and bioelectricity with the Traditional Chinese Medicine acupuncture meridian theories, we use copper and silver electrodes as acupuncture point stimulus. Acupuncture points on the body are known to have higher electrical conductivity than surrounding skin tissue. The human body functions are dependent on electrical factors. Endogenous DC electric fields are important, fundamental components of development, regeneration, and wound healing. When electrodes are applied to specific acupuncture points, electrons and silver ions are generated, conducting a micro-current between the electrodes. No external power source is necessary. Disruptions in the normal ion-charge in the meridians and circulation of blood, manifests as pain and development of disease. With the judicious application of electrodes, a micro-current can be directed to target injured or diseased organs and tissues. The permeability of the cell membranes is affected, resulting in a balancing of positive and negative ions (sodium, potassium, etc.) and the restoration of intracellular fluid levels, replenishment of electrolyte levels, removal of toxins and re-establishment of homeostasis. Bio-electrode Therapy is an adjunctive therapeutic solution to assist opioid dependent users in their quest for recovery from addiction.
Les Moncrieff has been employed as a health care professional for the British Columbia Health Authorities for the past 35 years. As a Registered Acupuncturist since 2000, his specialty is the treatment of addiction and complex pain. Les integrates a wide variety of CAM therapies such as hypnotherapy, energy psychology and various styles of acupuncture in his clinical practice. Les has developed a treatment method called Bio-Electrode therapy in which copper and silver electrode discs or inks are used as an acupuncture point stimulus method to harness the endogenous electrical properties of the body. No needles or electrical devices are required. Based on his clinical experience combining the science of electrophysiology with Chinese medicine meridian theory, an innovative new therapy is now evolving. For the past several years Les has been using Bio-Electrode therapy effectively for the treatment of drug addiction, primarily for opiate withdrawal and complex pain in Vancouver detox centers, community outpatient clinics and treatment programs. Les was a NADA trainer for several years.
在过去的35年中，Les Moncrieff被聘为卑诗省卫生局的卫生保健专业人员。自2000年以来，他是一名注册针灸师，并擅长治疗成瘾和复杂性疼痛。 Les在其临床实践中整合了多种CAM治疗方法，例如催眠疗法，能量心理学及各种针灸技术。 Les并研发了一种称为生物电极疗法的治疗方法，以铜和银电极盘或墨水用作穴位刺激，并利用其人体的内源性电特性。则免除针或电气设备。基于他的电生理学与中医经络理论相结合的临床经验，一种创新的新疗法正在不断发展。在过去的几年中，Les在温哥华戒瘾中心，社区门诊及治疗程序中，一直在有效地利用生物电极疗法来治疗药物成瘾，鸦片戒断和复杂性疼痛。 Les曾担任NADA培训师数年。
