The neural therapy after Huneke is a diagnostic and therapeutic procedure, whereby local anaesthetics are injected in order to detect disorders, relieve pain and cure diseases.
In 1925 Ferdinand Huneke discovered the possibility of local anaesthetics for therapy by treating migrain headaches with intravenous injections of Novocain (Procain), a method which was still entirely unknown at that time. The immediate and complete healing of the migrain encouraged him and his brother Walter to develop a new therapy concept, which at first was called curative anaesthesia. Only later, after discovering the "Flash Phaenomenon", it was named Neural Therapy.
Neural therapy after Huneke is a generic term for the:
- Segmental Therapy
... is often used as synonym for the concept of "Neural Therapy“ (including therapeutic local anaesthesia TLA)
- Focal Therapy
...to eliminate (sometimes remote) interference fields, for the treatment of chronic and physiological illnesses.
