Dr. med. Ferdinand Huneke

Specialist in general medicine

In 1925, Ferdinand Huneke discovered the therapeutic possibilities of using local anesthetics and was thus the founder of neural therapy according to Huneke. In 1940, the method also underwent a significant enrichment when Ferdinand Huneke, MD, observed his first second phenomenon on a patient. Segmental therapy and the Huneke phenomenon were combined under the term "neural therapy according to Huneke". Together with his brother Dr. med. Walter Huneke, Dr. med. Ferdinand Huneke is considered the discoverer and developer of neural therapy.

Dr. med. Ferdinand Huneke wrote two books "Illness and Healing Seen Differently" and "The Seconds Phenomenon". Furthermore, he published numerous papers in medical journals.

Dr. med. Walter Huneke wrote two books "Impletoltherapie" and "Rejuvenation through Novocain" and published numerous articles in medical journals. In recognition of his services, he was awarded the Federal Cross of Merit I Class and the Hufeland Medal in 1967.
