What is neural therapy?
Neural therapy is the injection of very low doses of local anesthetic into specific areas of the body for therapeutic purposes. It is considered a form of alternative medicine, especially indicated for the treatment of pain and chronic diseases. Its main value is that it has no side effects and usually has no complications, and is usually performed with procaine as a local anesthetic.
Why is it performed?
Neural therapy finds its origin in the theory of interfering fields, which states that the energy in the body of a person without diseases flows freely, while diseases, stress or malnutrition hinder this passage of energy. Thus, the function of neural therapy is to restore this flow, treating the cell membrane.
It is indicated for a wide range of pathologies, the most common being heart and circulatory diseases, chronic pain, headaches and migraines, asthma, arthritis, arthrosis and lumbago, otitis, pharyngitis, alopecia, and mental health diseases such as depression or stress.
However, it is not indicated for hereditary diseases or in advanced stages of tuberculosis or liver cirrhosis.
What does it consist of?
Neural therapy consists of the injection of a local anesthetic in certain areas of the body in low concentrations, with the aim of restoring the electrical potentials of the cell membrane. Certain cellular potentials are altered when there is a pathology, and when the anesthetic is applied, it influences the vegetative nervous system in such a way that the potentials are recovered and the normal functions of the cell membrane are recovered.

Preparation for neural therapy
Before the neural therapy session, the specialist will collect the patient’s medical history, the medical treatments he/she has undergone and his/her emotional situation, in order to know all the fields that generate “interferences” in his/her energy flow.
On the other hand, no previous preparation will be required from the patient.
Care after the intervention
The main value of neural therapy is that it has no side effects, and the patient will not require any special care after the session. You will be able to return to your normal activity immediately after the session.
Alternatives to this treatment
Neural therapy is considered an alternative treatment for many diseases and ailments. It is usually used by patients who have undergone a specific treatment for their illness and have not obtained results. Thus, neural therapy experts recommend combining it with other treatments and care such as homeopathy, biological nutrition or psychological support to improve results.
