NADA Song
“Just Five Needles”

1. From cities to villages, acudetox specialists
Deliver safe health services to needy and helpless;
Just five needles for every ear,
The NADA protocol for you and for me —

2. From East to West, NADA mission integrates
Oriental and Western principles make treatment wonderful;
Just five needles for every ear,
The NADA protocol for you and for me —

3. Where in continents of the world spread the NADA associates
To practice and coordinate that many can benefit;
Just five needles for every ear,
The NADA protocol for you and for me–

4. Beyond the needling, NADA spirit is amazing,
Making people get and give others help indeed is empowering;
Just five needles for every ear,
The NADA protocol for you and for me —

CODA
Just five needles for every ear,
The NADA protocol for you and for me —
[Join hands, join minds and join hearts,
Bring happiness and freedom to souls
Who are sick and in pain.]
(Repeat)
