Neural therapy utilizes a local anesthetic, procaine, and often homeopathic preparations to remove or treat electrical interference fields in the body, originally caused as a result of wounds, scars, surgery, infection, even mental-emotional trauma. These interference fields may produce chronic pain or musculoskeletal dysfunction, or produce more broad ranging problems such as chronic sinus issues, menstrual dysfunction, pelvic pain, digestive disturbances, insomnia, breathing difficulty, etc – the list goes on. The procaine and additional medicines are injected either at the surface of the body, such as around painful areas, or slightly deeper to get at nerve bundles suspected to be “stuck” in a dysfunctional pattern.
Injections are done with tiny needles, and are usually very well tolerated, with minimal, if any, discomfort. Procaine is one of the earliest, and safest anesthetics, being easily metabolized in the plasma, and not requiring the liver for breakdown and detoxification, as with other more complicated compounds. Most patients tolerate this medicine well, even if previous problems with other anesthetic medications.
