5th Heidelberg Conference Neural Therapy 2019
June 27 – 29 2019

Therapy with Local Anesthetics

Meeting place for students, doctors, scientists


The academic level, the exchange between speakers, physicians, and students and the lovely Heidelberg summer have all been appreciated by our participants since 2014. Research directly put into practice – international experts from selected experts from the basic sciences, hospitals, and practices will present their recent findings. Particular emphasis will be given to direct implementation into practice. The “Basic Certificate for Neural Therapy” from University Heidelberg, in conjunction with DGfAN e.V., can be acquired at the congress. Further information under the page Examination Course.

We’re looking forward to seeing you in Heidelberg in June 2019!
Dr. Stefan Weinschenk & Prof. Dr. Hubert Bardenheuer

Greeting from Prof. Dr. Dr. h.c. Manfred Zimmermann
Professor of Physiology, University of Heidelberg


Dear Participants,

Neural therapy was born more than 100 years ago from the observation that short-acting local anesthetics often bring about long-term analgesia. This is frequently accompanied by anti-inflammatory and other curative effects. Despite the fact that it is widely practiced, neural therapy remains a controversial topic. To this day there is no standardized documentation of the results of neural therapy, and no modern scientific substantiation for the complex interaction between the neural immune systems.
Local anesthetics have a wide range of molecular effects: In addition to stimulus transmission, it also inhibits the release of proinflammatory neuropeptides from sensory nerves, acts on endocannabinoid receptors, and much more. The latest findings will be presented at the lecture on Friday.
The Heidelberger HUNTER Group seeks to advance these findings and set new standards in their application and interpretation. I welcome you to the fifth Heidelberg Conference Neural Therapy 2019 and hope you attain many new insights and skills for your medical routine.

Prof. Dr. Manfred Zimmermann
Honorary Chairman of the HUNTER Group
