THE STORY:

April 27, 2015

Dear Friends, Family and Community,

As some of you may know I have maintained  personal connections with Nepal and a commitment to supporting the health of Nepalese people since 1975.  On April 25, 2015 at 7.8 magnitude earthquake ripped through the middle of Nepal leaving thousands dead, tens of thousands of wounded and millions without access to shelter, food and clean water. This major trauma will affect the lives of the Nepalese for many months, if not years, to come.

My heart calls me to respond thoughtfully. I plan go to Nepal in May and June to assist coordination of healthcare teams in the Kathmandu Valley and rural communities hit hardest by the earthquake.  

We will administer free, simple acupuncture treatments to those experiencing the overwhelming stress of trauma.  This five needle ear acupuncture protocol evolved from traditional Chinese medicine into the NADA protocol (National Acupuncture Detoxification Association www.acudetox.com) that I was trained to administer in 1992.  It also mitigates the onset of Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD).

In September 2005, I joined a few acupuncture professional colleagues from across the US to initially respond to the devastating wake of human trauma left by Hurricanes Katrina and Rita in Louisiana using the NADA protocol. Consequently, a non-profit organization called Acupuncturists Without Borders -AWB  (http://www.acuwithoutborders.org/) was formed to effectively deliver some 8000 treatments over the next nine months. Since then AWB and its members have facilitated response teams in many other wide-scale human traumas and trained hundreds of health workers to deliver the NADA (www.acudetox.com) protocol.  I have found predictable success using it in my professional practice and in disaster response settings that include the 2010 Haiti earthquake, 2010 Nepal and 2014 Oso, WA mudslide. 

As in the past, I will volunteer my time and close my Seattle office to make this trip.  I estimate a financial need of $3300 for transportation, food and lodging over several weeks and am appealing for your support.  Any amount will be gratefully received and acknowledged with a report upon my return.
