Procaine in the Neural Therapy World

Procaine is a compounded local anesthetic used as an alternative to Lidocaine and a viable companion for neural therapy and acupuncture. Neural therapy involves injecting local anesthetics, such as Procaine or Lidocaine, into tissues of the body or acupuncture points to treat pain and ailments or heal scarring.

According to Dr. Christina Captain, Procaine is a valuable healing substance. As she describes it, Procaine is a nutritional substance that helps heal an out-of-balance nervous system and restores self-healing. She says during neural therapy, Procaine helps the cells start talking to each other. And with just one dose of Procaine, a scar will begin to heal, and the patient can move without pain.

Dr. Captain is a nationally board-certified (NCCAOM) Doctor of Acupuncture and Oriental Medicine (DAOM) and the lead practitioner at Sarasota Center for Acupuncture and Nutrition, formerly Family Healing Center, which she founded in 2000. 

Dr. Captain started exploring acupuncture and neural therapies when she was searching for cures for herself. She says she sought alternative medicine, acupuncture, energy healing, and many other alternatives with success. Dr. Captain uses homeopathic, supplements, and compounded products, including Procaine along with acupuncture injections.

Like many products, Compound Preferred successfully and efficiently produces Procaine in custom batches. This production allows practitioners, like Dr. Captain, a product solution to fit his or her specific needs. Our processes are designed to ensure every formulation conforms to the highest standards for identity, strength, quality, and purity. Therefore, those practitioners have confidence in the quality of Procaine they administer to their patients. 

We asked Dr. Captain if she prefers Procaine over other medications, such as Lidocaine. Procaine and Lidocaine are both local anesthetics. However, Dr. Captain believes Procaine is more nutritionally based. She says Procaine has a broader effect and a broader use when compared to a chemically based anesthetic. Procaine is metabolized very quickly out of the body. Procaine is administered in minimal doses and is not typically a toxicity concern. 

“Procaine is a very valuable and safe substance to utilize to encourage the body to heal itself,” says Dr. Captain. “And it is efficient. It’s completely efficient. If I want to numb you, I am going to use Lidocaine; if I want to heal you, l will use Procaine.”

Dr. Captain’s knowledge and enthusiasm for health and wellness have earned her a reputation as a qualified lecturer, keynote speaker, and experienced teacher throughout the United States. She is also an expert feng shui practitioner. Compound Preferred employs a strong relationship with her and other practitioners to provide quality products to the medical community.
