Neural therapy is a regulatory therapy that aims to modulate the Nervous System, especially the Autonomous Nervous System (ANS), so that organs and tissues recover their functions and the body reaches global balance. It consists of the application of a very diluted local anesthetic, in places of possible nervous irritation that overload the organic functioning and can cause illness and discomfort. These sites are determined from a thorough clinical history and objective examination.
The ANS acts involuntarily, regulating the vital functions of our body, in order to maintain or rebalance homeostasis. Thus, it controls processes such as digestion, breathing, the cardiovascular and renal systems and the secretion of hormones. It has a close relationship with the endocrine, limbic (associated with emotions) and behavioral systems (drinking, looking for food, etc).
All body tissues have nerve fibers that allow them to regulate their functions. These nerve fibers are all interconnected, forming a network, and adapting to the stimuli and needs of each one, at each moment. Any event that causes irritation in one or several nerve fibers can interrupt this global regulation of the organism and influence other organs and tissues. In this way, neural therapy seeks to neutralize these irritations so that the body regains balance and its self-healing mechanisms. The diluted local anesthetic does not have an anesthetic purpose, but it achieves the repolarization of the electrical potential of cell membranes, stabilizing them, and neutralizing the nervous tissue foci with interference.
Bearing in mind that most health problems can be improved by regulating the functioning of the nervous system, this therapeutic technique can help in a wide variety of illnesses. The main problems that lead to the search for this type of treatment are:
