“I am very satisfied and have gained a lot of new insights and above all experiences from the speakers and also participants.”
Sarah M. from Heidelberg
“At the conference with colleagues, we were able to discuss questions that we gathered over the year, and decisions that had to be made. This event is the best place to deal with all topics in and around the field of neural therapy- to learn and share.”
Hermann S. from Heidelberg
Greeting from Prof. Dr. Dr. h.c. Manfred Zimmermann
Professor of Physiology, University of Heidelberg
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 2018 and hope you attain many new insights and skills for your medical routine.
Prof. Dr. Manfred Zimmermann
Honorary Chairman of the HUNTER-Group
