What is Neural Therapy?

Neural therapy is a series of injections given to repair a wide range of conditions.

When Should I Consider Using Neural Therapy?

Neural Therapy can help treat the following conditions:
  • Any condition involving the autonomic nervous system
  • Irregular heart beat, palpitations
  • Bronchospasm, asthma, allergies
  • Digestive disturbance such as indigestion and constipation
  • Painful menstruation
  • Temperature imbalances, such as cold extremities or hot flashes
  • Sciatica
  • Leg pain
  • Migraine and other headaches

How Does Neural Therapy Work?

Our bodies have electrical components. For example, EKG's (electrocardiograms) trace the electrical activity within the heart. EEG's (Electroencephalograms) document brain wave patterns. Like the heart and brain, the entire body has electrophysiological components. Electrical activity occurs in every cell, at every moment of life. Disturbances in the electrophysiology of the body are called interference fields. They are caused by problems of cell membranes. Interference fields trigger distress in the autonomic nervous system.

The autonomic nervous system controls the glands of the body as well as cardiac and smooth muscle tissue. Smooth muscle tissue is found in the digestive, circulatory and respiratory tract. Another way of thinking about the autonomic nervous system is to think of it as an automatic system which controls the body's processes.

Local anesthetics, such as Lidocaine and Novocain are often used to numb tissues and calm imbalances of the nervous system. For example, physicians may administer lidocaine to patients experiencing heart attacks. This has been know to calm electrical impulses in the heart and help the heart beat properly.

Neural Therapists use similar medications to correct imbalances of other electro physical imbalances as well.

How is Neural Therapy Given?

  1. The Neural therapy expert conducts a review of your history with you.
  2. Your tissues are palpated and muscle strength tested to determine locations of interference fields.
  3. Once interference fields are located, a local anesthetic is injected to stabilize the cell membranes.
  4. Injections are repeated at intervals recommended by the practitioner until the problem is resolved.
