Neural Therapy was developed in Germany in the 1920s by Dr. Ferdinand Huneke, MD and Dr. Walter Huneke, MD. Because of its efficacy, Neural Therapy became popular throughout Western Europe. In the 1970s, Neural Therapy was introduced in Colombia, South America by the German physician Dr. Peter Dosh, MD, a renowned disciple of the Huneke brothers. Dr. Dosh and two pioneering Colombian physicians, Dr. German Duque, MD and Dr. Julio Cesar Payan, MD created the first Neural Therapy school in the Western Hemisphere. Located in Popayan, Colombia, hundreds of physicians from all over South America and Spain trained with doctors Duque and Payan in Neural Therapy. Dr. Payan continued Dr. Dosh’s research and development of Neural Therapy to such an extent that he is considered the ‘The Philosopher of Neural Therapy’ and one of the most eminent and renowned physicians by the international community of Neural Therapists.
In 1987, Dr. Payan introduced Neural Therapy to general surgeon Dr. Jairo Ardila, MD. In 1994, Dr. Ardila began using Neural Therapy and other integrative therapies in his private practice, Formulando Vida (Spanish for Prescribing Life) located in Villavicencio, Colombia. In 2000, Formulando Vida expanded to include Bogota D.C. In 2010, Dr. Jairo Ardila's daughter, Dr. Laura Ardila, MD, joined her father at Formulando Vida after studying under Dr. Payan.
Dr. Jairo Ardila and Dr. Laura Ardila’s approach to medicine lead them in new directions involving advanced clinical preventive medicine such as anti-aging and longevity, new developments in neuroscience such as Neuro-Linguistic Programming (NLP) and Physcoinmunotherapy (PNIT) Solarte Tech, created by the Colombian physician Dr. Armando Solarte. In addition to the neuroscience developments, they utilize ancient therapies such as Ayurveda medicine and Acupuncture.
As a team, they have successfully treated ~43,000 patients.
In 2012, the pain clinic Cindolor, responsible for pain management of patients treated by Clinica del Country Bogota D.C. (the Colombian equivalent to the Mayo Clinic in the U.S.), specifically requested Dr. Jairo Ardila and Dr. Laura Ardila to assist with the most difficult cases.
In 2014, Dr. Laura Ardila married Lance Rosser, a native Houstonian, who was also a successful patient of Formulando Vida. They established their home in Houston and, in 2015 founded Prescribing Life. In 2016, Dr. Uday Khosla, MD, a renowned specialist, joined the team of Prescribing Life as the Medical Director after seeing the potential and the hope that Prescribing Life can bring to patients in need of new and more integrative solutions in medicine.
Eager to help others and improve the quality of life of their community, Prescribing Life proudly brings to Houston, Texas an effective solution to eliminate pain.
