Integrative Medicine

Integrative medicine

Integrative medicine is a holistic approach to healthcare that combines the best of conventional, complementary and alternative therapies. The aim of this approach is to provide comprehensive care that is tailored to the individual needs of the patient and integrates evidence-based methods from naturopathy and complementary medicine. An important basis of integrative medicine is the prevention of future diseases.

Diagnostics and Therapies in Integrative Medicine

The diagnostics in integrative medicine take into account a careful and in-depth assessment of physical, emotional and social factors.
The spectrum of therapeutic approaches ranges from conventional medication to orthomolecular medicine, homeopathy, phytotherapeutics and complementary therapies such as acupuncture and hypnosis (hypnotherapy). Integrative medicine can provide valuable support, particularly in cases of chronic pain, chronic inflammation or cancer.

The treatment plans are tailored to the individual needs of each patient, with the aim of activating and supporting the body’s natural self-healing powers. This is achieved through various approaches such as optimising nutrition, taking micronutrients, stress management and promoting a healthy lifestyle.

During therapy, it is important that an experienced team of doctors, therapists, nutritionists, psychotherapists and dentists work together on an interdisciplinary basis in order to integrate different perspectives and specialist knowledge.

Evidence-based and Scientific

Integrative medicine consists of evidence-based, scientific findings and combines tried and tested conventional methods with those that have been proven to be effective and safe in complementary medicine. There is a particular focus on preventative measures to stop health problems before they can develop or worsen.
