Intestinal health

For many people, the causes of the symptoms they are suffering from are not found. Looked at from a holistic perspective, the intestine is particularly important.

It is becoming increasingly recognised that the intestinal tract (digestive tract) is a complex organ which is capable of more than just the absorption, digestion and excretion of food. The intestine is a metabolic, immunological organ. It is a barrier to all of the organisms and antigens which live in its lumen. Seventy to eighty percent of the body's immune cells are found in the gastrointestinal tract (digestive tract). The intestine is also home to the largest epithelial surface separating the body from the outside world. It measures approximately 200-300 m² and corresponds to the area of a tennis court.

A large number of diseases such as allergies, migraines, asthma, flatulence, chronic constipation, continuous diarrhoea and food intolerances are treated on the basis of their symptoms - but there is unlikely to be a long-term improvement without treating the causes and understanding the links.

Intestinal health is very important to me.

Using intensive laboratory diagnostics of blood and stools, I attempt to identify changes and disruptions. This means that the causes of health problems in your intestine can be identified, and these can then be treated using conventional medical treatments, in some cases alternatively combined with homeopathic and orthomolecular treatments in the gentlest possible way.

Since intestinal health is also linked to nutrition, we want to look at your eating habits together, but physical health and how you lead your life also affect your intestinal health.

This holistic view does the most justice to the importance and health of your intestine.
