Neural therapy asserts that chronic ailments are caused by interference fields. Each part of the body and each pathologically altered organ in the body, can be an interference field. For the treatment, an anti-inflammatory anesthetic is injected into the abnormal tissue structure, primarily in the Head zone, which causes a relieve in the aching body area and at the same time the corresponding organ.
Procaine therapy is based on a certain type of infusion. The infusions are used to reduce pain and uses the active ingredient of procaine, a substance that has been successfully used for many years in neural therapy. Its effect is shown by the fact that it eliminates the pain receptors and improves the blood circulation in the smallest vessels. This can diminish the pain and has also an anti-inflammatory effect. Procaine also leads to a pleasant mental relaxation.
Procaine is vasodilator (widens the blood vessels) and anti-inflammatory and it neutralizes free radicals (antioxidant effect). It has a balancing effect on the vegetative nervous system and is used for anaesthesia. An important greater scope of application of procaine is the combined use as part of the so-called procaine therapy.
Here, a defined quantity of a Procaine, approved specifically for intravenous use, is mixed with a base (bicarbonate, THAM) in a saline solution and slowly administered as an infusion. The simultaneous addition of alkalizing substances is carried out with the aim of a prolongation of action of procaine, and improvement of procaine (membrane) availability by alkalisation of the cell environment.
The range of side effects is low. Very rarely blood pressure drops, dizziness and headaches can occur, which can be compensated for by adjusting the infusion speed or the temporary administration of a neutral carrier solution.
In general 20-100 ml (40 ml) an 8.4% sodium bicarbonate solution per 500 ml of carrier solution (NaCl 0.9%) is applied. The alkaline substance of the buffer solution passes quickly through the cell membranes and DE acidifies the inside and outside of cells. 0.1 to 0.5 g (200 mg) procaine is used depending on the strength of the pain, which is an acute expression of the condition. The infusions are carried out very slowly, 250 ml for at least 50 minutes. There are usually between 5 and 10 infusions needed (2-3 per week) to achieve a significant and sustained pain relief.
