Resolve autonomic nervous system dysfunction and chronic pain.

Developed in Europe, neural therapy is a gentle, healing technique designed to repair dysfunction of the autonomic nervous system—that part of the nervous system responsible for the “automatic” functions of the body.

When used in conjunction with other techniques, such as prolotherapy, it can be very effective in settling even the worst cases of chronic, seemingly intractable, pain (1).

Nervous System

In order to understand how neural therapy works, we need a basic understanding of the nervous system, especially the autonomic nervous system (ANS).

#1Somatic Nervous System (SoNS) – Voluntary
Controls all voluntary muscular systems in the body.

#2Autonomic Nervous System (ANS) – Involuntary
Controls bodily functions below the level of consciousness.

The ANS regulates internal functions such as the immune system, blood pressure and circulation, hormones, digestion, body temperature, heart rate, breathing, urination, sexual function, and other automatic body functions. It is divided into two parts.

PARASYMPATHETIC (PSNS)
Rest & Digest
Controls functions of the body at rest and helps maintain homeostasis.
SYMPATHETIC (SNS)
Fight or Flight
Prepares the body to react to stresses such as threat or injury.

If the ANS is injured, these internal functions will not perform at optimum levels and ultimately lead to disease and chronic pain.

How Neural Therapy Works

Neural therapy is based on the theory that any trauma, infection, or surgery can damage the ANS and produce long-standing disturbances in the body’s electrophysiology. If there is a disturbance within the ANS, the resulting dysfunction can last indefinitely (unless repaired) causing various consequences and symptoms as a result.

Neural therapy includes the injection of low dose procaine into areas surrounding peripheral nerves, ganglions, glands, trigger points, scars and wrinkles to heal the chronic disturbances in these tissues.

Re-establishing ANS balance and healthy electrical impulses through neural therapy allows for the healing of stressed nerves and their ability to send out appropriate nerve impulses to organs and tissues they supply to positively restore body functions.

Many different types of symptoms can be treated with neural therapy. These include: chronic headaches, back pain, joint inflammation, neuropathy, sciatica and pain in almost any region of the body (2). In complex chronic illnesses such as Lyme Disease, MS, Parkinson’s, and Multiple Chemical Sensitivity, it can be an important adjunctive therapy.
