Regenerative/Neural Therapy Injections

Neural therapy has been around since the early 1900s and its popularity has been growing ever since. It has become one of the most popular healing methods in Germany, and it’s now used all across the US and Europe.  Neural therapy is a wonderful complementary technique that offers a variety of benefits for conditions related to the autonomic nervous system, from digestive issues to menstrual irregularities and much more.

Neural therapy is a treatment that is useful for many pain and internal conditions. Neural therapy aims to improve health of the autonomic nervous system by balancing the input between sympathetic and parasympathetic nerves. This is by use of a local anesthetic, procaine, placed in targeted structures that help achieve this balance. The anesthetic will help balance the autonomic nervous system, which restores the health of the affected muscle, joint or organ.

Neural Therapy can be used to repair issues in the peripheral nervous system which controls muscles. But even more importantly, Neural therapy is a treatment that repairs dysfunction in the ANS – Autonomic Nervous System. Why is this important? The ANS is part of our central nervous system. It controls the automatic functions within our bodies. This includes, breathing, digestion, metabolism, regulating body temperature, hormone production, circulation, immune function, and much more.  When the autonomic nervous system is healthy, there is a balance between the sympathetic and parasympathetic nerves. The sympathetic nerves are known for the ‘fight or flight’ response. These are the nerves that are active in a life-threatening situation and stress.

Many diseases are a result of overactive sympathetic nerves or underactive parasympathetic nerves. When the sympathetic nerves are overactive, the body or affected organ is fatigued and depleted. Every cell, and organ function in our bodies is connected to and controlled by the ANS. When trauma in any part of the body, the ANS increases circulation to that area. If the circulation doesn’t eventually return to normal, interference fields develop. This happens in areas where there is scar tissue whether from surgery, accidents or injuries and even emotional trauma that has affected the organ energetically. Scar tissue is one of the most common causes of interference fields. The damaged tissue creates an abnormal signal, which is then transmitted throughout the body so sometimes pain and even dysfunction can occur in another area other than the site of the scar or tissue damage. Interference fields can be caused by a variety of factors, including:

  • Chronic illness
  • Physical Trauma & injuries
  • Emotional Trauma
  • Surgery
  • Infections
  • Childbirth
  • Vaccines
  • Tattoos
  • Cuts and Burns
  • Dental Work

Neural therapy is used to correct interference fields and restore optimal function to the ANS. The treatment restores the body’s natural ability to heal itself and allows complementary therapies to work more effectively.

How does this work and what procedure is involved?

During a neural therapy, an injection of local anesthetic (usually procaine or lidocaine) is inserted into these abnormal cells, which normalizes the interference field disturbance. This improves cellular function and helps stabilize the system by allowing toxins to be released and nutrients to enter. This helps reduces pain and restores the cells’ ability to heal, and in turn allows organs function and communicate better to create healing and better health in the body.

Neural therapy injection is done using a fine needle just below the skin in subcutaneous layer. The anesthetic may be injected into an acupuncture point, nerve, scar, gland, or another trigger point. A series of injections is usually needed. Sometimes, a deeper injection may be required, and a small amount of the anesthetic may also be given via a vein to help stabilize the autonomic nervous system or an IV infusion may be added on.
