- Price: $125 / session (ingredients not included)
Neural therapy is a powerful treatment that can be quite effective in resolving autonomic nervous system dysfunction and pain, especially in the complex pain patient.
Conditions Appropriate for Treatment With Neural Therapy
acute and chronic pain (including headaches of different origins),
multiple chronic conditions, caused by interrupted interference fields (such as rheumatism),
diseases of the motor system (sciatica, arthritic joint conditions, shoulder or arm syndrome),
internal diseases such as prostate, female, allergies, kidney; and
sports injuries where it assists in healing.
History and Theory of Neural Therapy
Neural therapy is a gentle, healing technique developed in Germany that involves the injection of local anesthetics into autonomic nerve ganglia (grouping of nerves), peripheral nerves, scars, glands, acupuncture points, trigger points, and other tissues.
Two German physicians practicing in the early 1900s, Ferdinand and Walter Huneke, are considered the founders of neural therapy.
Neural therapy is one of the best-known natural healing methods in Germany where there are more than 5,000 practitioners. It is now also practiced in other countries in Europe and the United States.
Neural therapy is based on the theory that any trauma, infection, or surgery can damage the autonomic nervous system and produce long-standing disturbances in the electrochemical or electromagnetic functions of tissues.
If there is a disturbance of the autonomic nervous system, the resulting dysfunction can last indefinitely unless repaired. When the autonomic nervous system is injured or not functioning correctly, various consequences result. An example is blood flow going out of synch with demand in an area that needs it, such as a soft tissue injury, thus resulting in incomplete healing.
It has been reported that “a correctly applied neural therapy injection can often instantly and permanently resolve chronic long-standing illness and chronic pain.”
