The last few years, neurologists, neurosurgeons, anesthetists, angiologists, endocrinologists and rehabilitation specialists have once again begun to meet in order to establish scientific societies on the theme of the nervous centrality of pathogenesis and in order to search for effective forms of therapy based on neuromodulation. These events, a manifestation of the end of the long phase of "specialist isolation" of medical thinking, are refocusing the attention of the scientific world, insistently and in new ways, on the use of LA as an effective and economic therapeutic procedure. With the study and practice of Neural therapy with LA, the neurosciences, systems theory and cybernetics cease being subjects exclusively of concern to neurologists, experimental researchers and bioengineers and are made available to serve the everyday needs of clinical activity and basic medicine. Today, finally, we are able to benefit from an extraordinary wealth of new knowledge about neurogenic inflammation, the nervous mechanisms of excitotoxicity and neuronal plasticity. It indeed seems as though the time has come for this method, backed up by a rare degree of experimentation, to enter into a new period of popularity among both physicians and humanity at large, which must deal with illness every day.
