Neural Therapy History
History of Neural Therapy
Neural therapy was discovered much by accident in 1925. Two physicians, Ferdinand and Walter Huneke had tried in vain to help their sister who suffered from frequent, severe migraines. During one of these particularly violent migraines they decided to try new “remedy” that they injected into her vein.
After many disappointments, neither expected much relief for their sister. However, something happened that they had never seen before. Before they had even finished administering the injection, the migraine simply vanished, along with the nausea and visual disturbances that typically accompany migraines, and never returned.
Following this miraculous recovery the Huneke brothers began to run experiments. What they discovered was that the remedy they used contained an additive called procaine (now known as Novacaine, the numbing medicine commonly used in dentists offices) and that this had produced the startling cure.
With much further research it became clear that procaine and other local anesthetics of the “caine” family could also be used to correct electrochemical imbalances of tissues that were altered through various injuries, illness or trauma. Neural therapy is commonly used by doctors throughout Europe and South America.
