Nutritional Counselling & Orthomolecular Medicine

Maintaining a healthy, balanced diet is not always easy. We tailor our advice to your personal requirements, habits and goals. It also comprises the areas of sports nutrition, special diets for medical conditions, food allergies and food intolerances as well as vegetarian and vegan diets.

Orthomolecular Medicine:

Greek ortho means “right, good”, and the term molecular refers to the smallest building blocks. Consequently, orthomolecular medicine deals with researching beneficial nutrients, and it is the scientific foundation for the use of micronutrients such as vitamins, minerals, essential amino acids and trace elements.

Application: To complement the approach of conventional medicine, we offer you personalised solutions for metabolic optimisation within the framework of orthomolecular medicine.

Analysis: We carry out special blood tests to examine your blood for any weaknesses in your metabolism, measuring for instance:

  • Micronutrients in whole blood
  • Oxidative stress
  • Hormones
  • Food intolerances

Treatment: Any identified weaknesses are then treated with the help of oral or intravenous substitution.

The objectives of orthomolecular medicine are:

  • Preventing diet-related deficiencies
  • Improving personal health
  • Maintaining vitality and performance levels up to an advanced age
  • Supporting self-healing powers in chronic-degenerative diseases
