Why to me?

The focus is not on the disease, but on the person as a whole

Holistic approach to medicine

On the one hand, holistic healing in Chinese medicine is the unity of body and psyche. This is because physical complaints naturally have an influence on mood and the mental state in turn on physical health.

The connection of the body organs

On the other hand, the concept of holism refers to the consideration of the interrelationships between the organs. Because everything in the body is connected. Take migraine, for example: the pain is felt in the head, but the organ responsible for the pain in Chinese medicine theory is the liver. It is therefore important to include the liver in the treatment of migraine. The enormous advantage of treatment with traditional medicine lies in the holistic view of the patient, as all aspects of human existence are included in the diagnosis and treatment of the illness. In my treatment, illness is not a mere dysfunction of an organ, but the result of an imbalance between organ functions and the psyche.

Integration of traditional and modern medicine

For me, a holistic approach also means seeing modern medicine and traditional medicine as complementary. For some diseases it is necessary to treat with modern medicine (then I send the patient to the respective specialist). This applies, for example, to all notifiable infectious diseases. Sometimes traditional medicine has the edge, such as with all patients who are “out of therapy”, or complaints where there is no clear diagnosis after many visits to the doctor, but the patient knows that they “have something”. This is also the case with chronic pain. The medical treatment of serious chronic illnesses by specialists can be excellently supplemented with acupuncture and other natural healing methods. For example, cancer, diabetes or high blood pressure, to name but a few. This depends on the individual clinical picture. The focus is always on the patient’s well-being.
