Neurological Diseases

Neurological diseases affect the nervous system and can have a variety of effects on physical and mental health. Possible conditions range from headaches and migraines to more serious conditions such as stroke, epilepsy and neurodegenerative diseases such as Parkinson’s and Alzheimer’s.

Learn more about neurological conditions that can commonly affect people:

  • Trigeminal Neuralgia

    Trigeminal neuralgia is a pain disorder of the trigeminal nerve in which those affected suffer from severe facial pain.

  • Polyneuropathy

    Polyneuropathy is a disease of the peripheral nervous system and can have a variety of causes.

  • Alzheimer’s Disease

    The neurodegenerative disease Alzheimer's is characterised by a breakdown of nerve cells in the cerebral cortex.

  • Multiple Sclerosis (MS)

    Multiple sclerosis often occurs in relapses and can lead to significant destruction of nerve cells.

  • Parkinson’s Disease

    Parkinson's disease can significantly affect the daily lives of those affected. Early therapy is advisable.

  • ALS – Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis

    Amyotrophic lateral sclerosis is a rapidly progressive neurodegenerative disease that should be treated by a team of professionals in various medical disciplines.

Diagnosis and Treatment of Neurological Diseases

Diagnosis consists of a thorough neurological examination, supplemented by imaging procedures such as MRI or CT and blood tests.

Therapeutic approaches are wide-ranging and can include drug treatments, physiotherapeutic measures, rehabilitative therapy and, in some cases, surgical interventions.

Integrative medicine sometimes goes one step further, as the cause of the disease is sought and eliminated. For example, many environmental toxins such as mercury (e.g. from dental fillings), lead (e.g. from old pipes), pesticides from agriculture and much more can have a nerve-damaging effect and trigger neurological disorders. If these causes are eliminated, the symptoms can be completely or partially reversed. Detoxification with the help of chelation therapy or INUSpheresis can rid the body of toxins and lead to an improvement.

Intestinal health and the function of the blood-brain barrier also play a decisive role in neurological diseases. Intestinal cleansing and the stabilization of the blood-brain barrier are therefore further important starting points.
