Neural therapy is a regulatory therapy that acts through the nervous system – especially the autonomic nervous system – by injecting small amounts of local anaesthesia in low concentrations, for purposes other than anaesthesia. It seeks, in turn, to neutralise irritations that have come to affect neurovegetative tone over one’s lifetime, and activate the natural tendency towards equilibrium.
By working on the autonomic nervous system that interconnects all the organs, between themselves and the emotional system, it has become a very useful tool in integrative medicine by accessing the psychosomatic sphere.
A primary tool is the patient’s life history, which is carefully analysed to discover any factors that may have altered the equilibrium of the ANS, as that is when the symptoms usually appear.
What conditions does it treat? Muscular pain, migraine, dysfunctional scarring, generalised pain, recurrent infections, herpes, neuralgia... wherever there is a nerve fibre, neural therapy can act.
