Our ability to survive depends on how well this barrier functions. Sometimes, however, our system goes into “overdrive”.
In this case, the immune system reacts to the body’s own tissue instead of defending itself against foreign substances only. The result is chronic disease, associated with a high degree of suffering and lifelong medication such as cortisone or similar substances.
Among the 80 to 100 known autoimmune diseases with different symptoms, issues in the intestinal tract are predominant. Diagnostically, we can determine specific laboratory parameters, analyse your intestinal health and dietary habits and offer valuable support based on the results.
The aim of functional medicine is to find the causes, restore immunological balance and increase well-being.
Recognising and successfully treating allergies
Allergies are the result of a tolerance disorder of our immune system. The recognition of foreign and own substances requires an intact balance between attack and non-reaction. If this balance is disturbed, an overreaction occurs, and an allergy develops. Often, the skin and the intestines are the first to react to certain substances that may be contained in food or skincare products. But other organ systems can also be affected and trigger an autoimmune disease. Allergies can also lead to a permanent reduction in quality of life. We use scientific methods to get to the bottom of the causes and triggers and help you find your personal escape from allergies and restore your immune balance.
