The therapeutic spectrum of our practice covers the entire field of general medicine. While formerly acute diseases used to be the focus of general medical practice, today chronic diseases are in the foreground, even in children. Especially in children a careful care and a cautious treatment is required in order to improve health conditions, even in acute disease like infections.
The spectrum of chronic diseases ranges from allergic and autoimmune diseases, to orthopedic problems with all kinds of pain, to diseases of the respiratory and digestive tract, the urological system, and hormonal disorders in men and women. Psychosomatic disorders are also becoming ever more common. Stress and its consequences play a major role in this development.
Every general practice has certain areas of focus. In our practice, it is asthma (especially children’s asthma), diet-related diseases, diseases of the thyroid gland, rheumatic diseases and diseases of the musculoskeletal system (especially fibromyalgia and osteoporosis).
Drug therapy is usually classic homeopathic or phytotherapeutic.
The often encountered expectation that a disease can be adequately treated with a drug (of chemical, herbal or other nature) tends not to apply to chronic diseases. Most of the time a drug treatment must be accompanied by supporting measures. These supporting measures are often even more important than the drug therapy itself.
Primary and Secondary Prevention
General health measures improve the physical and mental function. Such a general improvement of health is usually a prerequisite for dealing with chronic diseases. Even in cases where a complete cure is no longer possible, a better health ensures that serious consequences are prevented or limited and the quality of life increases. This is called secondary prevention.
