Your individual path to well-being

We recognise that health and wellbeing is a holistic condition and look at the whole person. Many factors contribute – we consider the interactions between genetics, environment and lifestyle.

The future of healthcare lies in personalised, science-based, patient-centred treatment that combines holistic, allopathic, alternative and integrative medicine with the aim of treating the whole person and finding the root cause of diseases and imbalances.

That is our ambition.

The goal is optimal wellness through a deep understanding of the patient’s biochemical, genetic and lifestyle factors. This is personalised healthcare – your health.

Our focus is on creating a plan to achieve the highest level of holistic health and wellbeing for our patients by tailoring your treatment to your individual needs.

Biotransformation and Health Programme

We will work closely together to develop a comprehensive and personalised Biotransformation and Health Programme that is specifically tailored to your health situation and lifestyle.

Education is key so that you understand your individual programme when you receive it. When we present you with your personalised protocol, we make sure you understand how you reached your current state of health so that you have a clear idea of how you got to where you are now and, more importantly, how you will get back to optimal health.

After the second session you will know exactly what your main concern is and how you can achieve your health goals.

In the Biotransformation and Health Programme we conduct a thorough symptom analysis. Based on your main concerns and the results of this analysis, we recommend a series of tests that will provide you with the necessary information to determine the cause of your health problems. With the Biotransformation and Health Programme, we look at your health from all angles, taking into account your genetics, biochemical composition, blood levels and other data.

What you can expect from the Biotransformation and Health Programme:

In the first few weeks of the programme we will work closely together to assess your eating habits and lifestyle, your health history and an analysis of symptoms.

Based on this, we will determine the best tests for your needs. This is followed by a waiting period during which the tests are carried out and the results collected.

Based on this thorough data, we create an individual programme for you that picks you up where you are.

You will be supported for the duration of the Biotransformation and Health Programme in person, as well as by phone/Skype and email.

How the Biotransformation and Health Programme works:

This comprehensive programme takes place over a pre-planned period of time with plenty of one-on-one time. We spend extra time creating and adapting your programme to your specific health needs.

Step 1: Recording

  • Comprehensive health history recording
  • Symptom analysis and assessment of about 200 possible physical symptoms
  • Lifestyle assessment
  • Review of eating habits
  • Assessment of medications and supplements (quantity, brands, forms,
    interactions, etc.)
  • Review of existing blood work and other medical tests
  • Review of the most appropriate testing options for your needs

Step 2: Functional medical tests and analyses*.

Following the initial assessment, we will recommend the most appropriate tests for your needs. These may include:

  • Personal genetic testing
  • Comprehensive digestive and microbiome analysis
  • Food sensitivity test
  • Heavy metal and toxic element analysis
    and many more

* Note that not all of these tests are recommended. We will select the tests that make the most sense for your individual needs. The tests are not included in the price of the programme.

Step 3: Customised protocol

After collecting and thoroughly reviewing all the data and cross-referencing it with the information collected at intake, we will create an evidence-based, individualised programme for you that includes the following:

  • Personalised information package on the main concern
  • Complete analysis of the test results
  • Lifestyle recommendations
  • Recommendations for dietary supplements
  • Support material

Step 4: Programme implementation

The full analysis and programme development usually takes 2 weeks. At this time, we meet again in person or via Skype to go through your entire programme with you. This appointment usually lasts between 90 minutes and two hours.

We will make sure you fully understand your health challenges, how your test results will affect your health and how your programme recommendations will help restore your balance.

In short, you will know what you can do, how you can do it and why you are doing it.

Step 5: Ongoing support

2 hours of follow-up time are used as needed to assess progress and make updates and changes.

Invest in your health!

Call us to make an appointment! We will then discuss your health challenges or goals and can clarify any questions you may have.

We look forward to seeing you!


COVID and long-term effects

I have COVID (infection with coronavirus SARS-CoV 2), what now?

The disease is notifiable.

Your test is positive and you have no symptoms?

Then you can go to work with a mask and the necessary hygiene measures according to Spanish law.

In Germany, self-isolation extends to a negative coronal test.

Your test is positive and you have symptoms?

Here it depends on how your immune system is doing.

Most vaccinated people experience symptoms such as fever, headache , cough and joint pain in a weakened form. The sputum should be clear.

The moment it turns yellow or green, there is most likely a bacterial superinfection that requires antibiotic treatment.

The viral infection alone is usually treated purely symptomatically.

Isolation is advised until the coronary test is negative.

If you have pre-existing conditions such as asthma, chronic obstructive pulmonary disease, diabetes mellitus, cancer or other diseases that already weaken your immune system, you should receive medical treatment as soon as possible, as the disease often leads to complications, just like any other viral or bacterial infection that affects a weakened body.

Long -COVID (> 4 weeks) and post-COVID syndrome (> 12 weeks), what is it?

After contracting covid, about 10% of people with symptoms remain ill for more than 4 weeks.

In most people, complete recovery takes about 3 weeks.

However, there are cases where the symptoms and the associated health impairment last much longer and even new symptoms can occur. Most of the time, the whole thing goes in waves, i.e.: things go up again for a short time and then they get worse again.

The most common symptoms are:

  • Headache
  • Fatigue
  • Reduced resilience
  • Pain in the limbs and muscles
  • Shortness of breath during exertion
  • Taste and smell disturbance

Occasional symptoms:

  • Brainfog (difficulty concentrating)
  • Cough
  • Sleep disturbances
  • Hair loss
  • Feeling of stress
  • Depression
  • Panic attacks
  • Nosebleeds

Rarely:

  • Dizziness
  • Diarrhoea
  • Nausea
  • Heart palpitations or racing (POTS postural orthostatic tachycardia
  • syndrome)
  • Tingling
  • Paralysis

It is still unclear whether this is just a consequence or a disease in its own right. In some patients, the deterioration occurs again after comparatively little exertion.

This is called PEM (post-exertional malaise).

What causes this course of events?

It is not yet known exactly why these symptoms occur in some patients and even within families, where all relatives are infected and all also have long-lasting symptoms, the symptoms can vary even among individuals.

Until now, the following causes have been held responsible:

  • Reduced immune system (e.g. vitamin D deficiency, intestinal dysbiosis etc).
  • Persistent infection and inflammation of individual organs with SARS -CoV-2
  • Excessive immune response to the virus
  • Low oxygen content in the blood and therefore slower healing process

What can be done?

Of course, the affected patient wishes that there was THE drug to make the symptoms subside. Unfortunately, no convincing treatment is known so far.

Rest, sufficient sleep and a balanced healthy diet are certainly basic measures to strive for.

See your doctor if you notice breathing difficulties, chest pain, difficulty staying awake or nervous disturbances.

Firstly, he can look for the causes and also rule out or treat more serious complications.

In addition, he can support you with e.g. vitamins or, if necessary, with a short-term cortisone treatment to minimise the excessive inflammatory reaction.

Above all, you need patience, because it varies from person to person how long your body needs to fully recover.

It is important to give yourself rest and time.

Every patient who has gone through COVID should be aware of the following:

  • Even after a mild course of the disease, long-lasting symptoms are possible
  • These usually disappear completely after a few weeks or months.
  • Permanent damage is extremely rare
  • And if new symptoms occur, you should see your doctor

With your family doctor, you should

  • Set realistic goals
  • Make appointments for check-ups
  • Clearly define exercise limits

In this way, your body should gradually regenerate.


Monkeypox (Monkeypox Virus or MPXV)

What should I know about monkeypox virus?

The pathogens that cause monkeypox originally come from West and Central Africa. Countries such as Germany, the UK, Spain, Portugal, Italy, the Czech Republic, the USA and Canada have now seen an increase in infections.

The disease is actually transmitted mainly by rodents such as rats and squirrels and is only called monkeypox because a virologist first detected the virus in a monkey in the 1950s.

In the meantime, more and more cases of the disease have been detected in humans. So far, monkeypox is a rare disease for humans, which usually runs a mild course.

What are the symptoms of monkeypox?

Symptoms include a rash typical of monkeypox, which usually starts on the face and then spreads to the whole body.

The skin lesions go through different stages, similar to chickenpox, and at the end the crusts fall off. Fever and swelling of the lymph nodes are usually also present. If you notice these symptoms, it makes sense to see a doctor.

Caution: The crusts that fall off are also infectious. Skin scars may remain. In rare cases, eye infections can occur, possibly resulting in blindness. If you have been vaccinated against smallpox (compulsory vaccination ended in Germany in the 1980s), you are immune.

Do I have to be quarantined if I have monkeypox?

In Germany there is a quarantine recommendation, in Belgium there is already a quarantine obligation in case of illness (currently 21 days). Transmission can occur from human to human and from animal to human. In the case of human-to-human transmission, it is not via droplet infection like Corona, but through close skin contact or bodily fluids, so it can also be transmitted sexually.

At present, the West African variant is rampant, with an extremely low risk of a fatal outcome. Immunosuppressed people are particularly at risk here. Viral infections are treated symptomatically. Boosting the immune system with vitamin D3, K2-MK7, magnesium citrate and possibly additional selenium, zinc and vitamin C ester is recommended in any case.

Is there a medicine against monkeypox?

Hand hygiene is very important. Tecovirimat is available as a medicine, and Imvanex, the vaccine approved for monkeypox, is available as a vaccine, which protects promptly even after exposure (illness) has already occurred.
