What is Neural Therapy?
Neural therapy is a specialized injection technique, which uses nutritive local anesthetics (Procaine) to treat chronic pain and chronic illness, as well as scars. It was initially developed in Germany and is currently used by approximately 35% of German doctors. Although forms of neural therapy such as trigger point injection, epidural injection, and regional injections, are currently used in the United States, neural therapy as a comprehensive holistic treatment approach for chronic pain, illness, and scars is virtually unknown.
Dr. Darvish is one of only a handful of physicians in the United States who is trained and experienced in neural therapy techniques for these conditions.
How does Neural Therapy work?
Neural therapy is based on the approach that trauma induces chronic changes and disturbances in the electrochemical tissue function. Scars, for instance, cause a physical block in the electric impulses of the organs underlying the scarred skin. The result is pain that may become chronic, the accumulation of toxins and infections in the area of trauma and scars, and a dysfunction in the corresponding organ system leading to chronic disease over time. Re-establishing the electrical impulses through neural therapy aids in the normalization of organ function, the resolution of symptoms and the reversal of disease processes.
Neural therapy also unblocks the meridians of Qi (based on Oriental Medicine theory) and allows the Qi to move more freely. The result is a return to normal functioning of organs and energy channels.
What is injected?
Neural therapy involves the injection of low dose procaine (a nutritive anesthetic) into nerve clusters (ganglions), peripheral nerves, trigger points, glands, and scars to heal the chronic disturbances in the tissues. Correct injection techniques to the proper areas can produce miraculous and near instantaneous pain relief in even the most painful conditions.
Can Neural Therapy be used for scars?
Neural therapy also heals scars and aesthetically lightens them. For instance, females with C-section scars or hysterectomy scars often find resolution in their chronic sinusitis, pelvic pain, hot flashes, menstrual cramps, chronic fatigue or thyroid dysfunction as well as a healing of the scar to an unnoticeable line when treated with neural therapy
How does Neural Therapy affect emotional detox?
Emotional disturbances resulting from accidents, surgery, dental procedures, vaccinations, childbirth, biopsies, and tattoos can have a significant impact on health and chronic disease. Emotions associated with the trauma of scars and toxins in the ganglion and tissues are often released within 48 hours of a neural therapy injection.
What type of medical conditions are best treated with Neural Therapy?
Neural Therapy can be very effective for many types of medical conditions including but not limited to joint and back pain, chronic headaches/migraines, allergies, chronic bowel problems, kidney disease, prostate and female problems, infertility, tinnitus (ringing in the ears), chronic sinusitis, neurological disorders and many other conditions. Neural therapy is an important part of a treatment plan for Parkinson’s disease, Lyme Disease, Multiple Sclerosis, and Alzheimer’s.
What are the risks of Neural Therapy?
As with any form of injection, there is always a risk of bruising and infection. But because the majority of Neural Therapy injections are superficial and subcutaneous, the risk of infection is very low and very rare. Occasionally, a Herxheimer’s detox reaction (temporary nausea, malaise, dizziness) may occur as a result of the therapy. Often, deep-seeded emotions are released as the traumatized tissue clears its toxins with the injections.
If you have a Novocaine or procaine allergy you must let your physician know.
