Chronic diseases

An inflammation in the body should always be understood from two sides: on the one hand, the therapeutic focus is naturally first on the triggering cause. This can be, for example, an injury, an operation, a foreign body, a focus of infection or even a tumor. On the other hand, it is important and helpful to see the inflammatory process as an active response of our immune system, in which our organism activates its repair program to initiate self-healing. The classic symptoms of inflammation such as redness, hyperthermia, pain, swelling and functional impairment (lat. rubor, calor, dolor, tumor and functio laesa) should therefore be seen primarily as an expression of a complex immune response and therefore, from a naturopathic point of view, should only be suppressed in the event of an excessive immune response.

Now, some painkillers, immunosuppressants such as cortisone, cytostatics such as MTX (methotrexate), but also the newer biologics (= antibodies that block parts of our immune response) not only lead to the desired and often rapid reduction of symptoms, but weaken our immune system in the long term, which can result in many side effects and secondary complications. In our experience, in the vast majority of cases, a naturopathic treatment that supports and trains the immune system in a non-specific way provides a decisive balance by allowing the body's own programs to continue and self-healing to remain active.

On the one hand, treatment consists of improving the local tissue conditions in the inflamed area (e.g. joints, muscles, connective tissue). Here, on the one hand, infusions and oral supplementation with antioxidants, vitamin C, curcumin, propolis, incense, enzymes, base infusions lead to deacidification and balance in the tissues; on the other hand, appropriate non-specific immune stimulation with mistletoe extracts, the Christmas rose or similar ensures that a natural and healthy immune response is maintained.

The above-mentioned therapies have proven effective in the following diseases, among others:

  • General disorders of the immune system

  • constantly recurring infections

  • general weakness of the immune system

  • autoimmune diseases (such as rheumatoid arthritis, Bechterew's disease and other so-called collagenoses)

  • psoriasis (psoriasis)

  • allergies (including hay fever, neurodermatitis, allergic asthma, histamine intolerance)

  • chronic bronchitis

  • diseases of the gastrointestinal tract such as Crohn's disease or ulcerative colitis

  • liver diseases like viral hepatitis

  • and many others.
