WHAT IS NEURALTHERAPY ACCORDING TO HUNEKE?
The Neuraltherapy or Neural Therapy is an original and innovative method of Welfare Medicine, of excellent therapeutic effectiveness, that serves to drive processes of treatment, healing or relief, in those people who are or feel ill; even those that are resistant to other medical treatments and/or alternative non-medical therapies.
Although it is certain that Neuraltherapy has acquired its better fame in the treatment of patients with pain, is good to clarify, that this one is a medicine that shows all its power in the integral treatment of patie nts, which are singular, unique and unrepeatable.
WHAT IS the Neuraltherapy or Neural Therapy
Neuraltherapy from its etymological concept, means to therapeutically take part in a patient’s condition with our conception and methodology, through specific bodily zones, where we suspect that it can have centers or portions of his/her Nervous System that are in an irritated state. These irritations can be kept or stored like memories since we were born.
WHAT IMPLICATIONS DO THESE AREAS
In Neuraltherapy or Neural Therapy we sustain our welfare doctor actions in a theoretical conception guaranteed by solid animal experimental investigations and medical daily practice with human beings. From this experience it arises that these zones or centers with memories in a neuro-irritated state, may at some singular time have been accumulated or, at several incidents since we were born.
These neuro-irritating or neuro dystrophic centers, that we will be able to call Segmental or Extra Segmental (or Interferential Fields), have or can have the potential, that under certain circumstances or predispositions, inherent to each organism, favor the facilitating conditions so that these neuro-irritating centers acquire pathogenic capacity (that is to say, to cause the emergency events that we understand like pathological or disease processes). These memories are organized systemically and they are expressed clinically through a symptom, of a syndrome or a disease, to which our medical clinic Academy, already has set a full name for.
IS IT POSSIBLE THAT WITH ONE MEDICINE ONLY, INTEGRAL MEDICINE COULD BE PERFORMED, WITH THE CAPACITY TO CURE, TO HEAL OR TO ALLEVIATE A GREAT PART OF THE PATHOLOGICAL PROCESSES?
The extraordinary and surprising particularity that Neuraltherapy has according to Huneke, is that in order to drive the therapeutic changes it always uses only 1 (one) medicine. This means that our medication, `neuralterapeuticum', which is a local very diluted anesthetic, could be considered a medicine or a non specific medicinal drug.
WHAT LOCAL ANESTHETIC IS USED
In our neural therapeutic technical procedures we use - only - one needle mounted in a syringe that is loaded with the local anesthetic (LA) in very low concentrations. The local anesthetic that has always been used by neural therapists worldwide is Procaine or Novocain Hydrochloride, in a concentration of less than 1%. If necessary, also Lidocaine or Xilocaine can be used, but in much lower concentrations still. These LA when being very diluted, change their normal pharmacological action and stop being a dielectric; meaning that they diminish its capacity to anaesthetize or to block the conduction of the neuronal impulses that transport the information of sensitivity towards the encephalon.
DOES NEURALTHERAPY MAKE ANESTHETIC BLOCKAGES?
It must be very clear that the Neural therapists are not interested to anaesthetize anything, or to block anything, that field is for the specialists in Anesthesia or Anesthesiologists.The Neural therapists are intent in making Good Medicine; we set out to realize a welfare medicine of excellence, of high efficacy and low side effects.
Thus to obtain our therapeutic intentions we only used injections with the anesthetic premises in very low concentrations. This allows us to introduce subtle (smooth, weak and appropriate) stimuli in specific body areas; areas with neuro-irritating memories with pathogenic potentiality.Therefore our smooth, subtle, weak and suitably, placed injections with procaine in concentrations of 0.3 % to 1%, produce stimuli in the indicated place at the opportune moment.
Neuraltherapy DOES IT BLOCK OR STIMULATE?
We repeat, the Neural therapists use a local anesthetic but we are not anesthetists, nor do we set out to anaesthetize anything.
SO FAR THE CLARIFICATION OF WHAT IS NEUROMODULATION AND WHAT IS AUTO-ECHO-ORGANIZATION IS STILL PENDING
In our conception, the neuromodulation can be understood as the self-regulated capacity of the Nervous System which normally and through the ontogenetic development is incorporated in our bodies from birth.
This neuromodulating capacity is the one that we try to stimulate with our neuralterapeuticum (which is a much diluted LA), amplifying or attenuating the expression of the neural activity, according to the two following situations, if its predominant vital tone is nearer to the functional pole of the low and depression or, if what predominates is the excitation and excess.
This means that if there are hypotonic processes, you facilitate the hypertonic processes and vice versa. We must consider that this neuromodulating capacity can be conditioned by deficiencies of possibilities and the availabilities of the ill organism, in its search to find new and better order, than allows it to enter or to return towards the processes of treatment, healing or relief.
The Self-Eco-Organization (SEO)
To our way of thinking, or rather, in our theoretical conception of Neuraltherapy, we understand self-echo-organization (SEO) like an idea force that we have taken from one of our principles that sustains the thought of complexity.
WHEN IN DOUBT, SEE TO BELIEVE
We know that it can be especially difficult, for some medical colleagues, odontologists or veterinarians, to understand how in Neuraltherapy just by the use of medicine and a syringe with needle, we can treat singular patients, with any type of pathologies and to obtain excellent therapeutic results.
CAN IT BE THAT A SAME THERAPEUTIC ELEMENT IS USED ALMOST FOR EVERYTHING?
Then, what makes the difference, what explains that these different forms to execute medicine, always with the same unspecific elements, continue being successful? Without a doubt, the reason is that the added value is given by the singularity of its concepts, conceptions and theoretical-practical methodologies.
Later the natural differentiation between professionals within a same discipline will come, and that will be as the result of the “know how”, “the savoir-faire” and that depends in the immanent and own qualities of each professional, as they are his talent, his art, his creativity and his boldness.
THE IMPORTANCE OF THE ETHICAL, CULTURAL, SOCIAL AND MEDICAL VALUES AS TRAINERS ON PARADIGMS
In that context, it is not exaggerated to say that as much as from the edge of the bistouries of the surgeons, like from the end of the needles of acupuncturists and neural therapists, there is a flow and an emergence that expresses in magnificent synthesis: our minds, our brains, our emotions, our ideas, our experiences, our knowledge, our professional formation, our myths, our cultures, our energies, our metaphors, our intimate artistic qualities, our virtues, our meanness, our fears, our interests, our prejudices, our moral values, our diseases, our spiritualities, our beliefs, our intentions and our ways to understand life in the Universe.
Therefore we must always calm our patients (and also some colleagues) so they do not become distressed, explaining that the injected medicine is not the most important thing. Of Course one must be alert to the fact that there are some “needle-happy” therapists who do not support the anesthetic premises and therefore discredit Neural Therapy.
TREATMENT, HEALING, RELIEF – THE RELATIONSHIP BETWEEN THE BODY AND ITS NERVOUS SYSTEM (Central, Peripheral and Neuro-vegetative) WITH SOCIETY AND THE ENVIRONMENT
These neuro-modulating impulses acting in neural zones in an irritation state (morbid or failing excitation) offer to the ailing body bigger and better possibilities and probabilities, in order to make evident Self-Echo-Organizational events in the sense of the healing, the treatment, the relief and the psycho-emotional well-being.
Prof. Ricardo Finochietto repeated with force:
WHAT HAS BEEN THE THEORETICAL-PRACTICAL CONTRIBUTION OF NEURALTHERAPY TO WELFARE MEDICINE?
If I had to synthesize the basic characteristics of this forceful way to execute the welfare medicine called Neuraltherapy, I would have to say that it is the concentrated expression of the good art and the good practice of Medicine.
However, pay attention, because this does not mean that we must ignore or not know with elementary rigor the more serious or urgent clinical aspects of medicine. At this moment of transition where we have been called to live, this conduct implies a double load for Neural therapists:
WHAT CAN WE DO TO HELP THOSE COLLEAGUES WHO WISH TO SOLVE NATURAL LACKS OF UNDERSTANDING THAT CAN BE RAISED BY NEURALTHERAPY, BETWEEN HIS SPEECH, HIS PRACTICES AND HIS EFFECTIVENESS IN THE RESULTS?
Obviously this rationalization cannot be understood in its conceptual-practical theory by some of our colleagues Doctors or Deontologists. But this difficulty yields easily, since in welfare medicine, practice is the best criteria to explain the veracity of what it says.
In this sense, any doctor or deontologist who wishes to actually corroborate the theoretical criterion that is exposed here only needs to communicate with me or Dr. Horacio Gallitelli, to solicit a visit to the doctor's office at the Hospital Unit of Neuraltherapy for the Integral Treatment of the Patient with Pain or to the Deontological Doctor's office.
The only requirement is that the doctor must attend during 1 month, 2 times per week, to see the evolution that patients treated with NT are having, whether it be those who are already in treatment or new ones that are entering.
THIS IS A MEDICINE OF PATIENTS AND NOT OF DISEASES
Therefore, this that seems so simple and which many colleagues repeat without it having repercussion in the actual practice, “not to treat diseases but to treat concrete and singular patients”, turns out to be the Gordian Knot differentiator of this revolutionary and innovator way to think and to execute welfare medicine.
