By basic therapies we understand those kind of therapies that help patients with chronic-degenerative illnesses, e.g. cancer, rheumatism or cardiovascular diseases, to a faster recovery.
All these chronic illnesses have multiple underlying causes (multifactorial), that need to be identified (possibly by extended diagnostics) and need to be eradicated.
Mainstream medicine (orthodox medicine), however, only sees the illness and its symptoms and thus applies only a symptomatic therapy that is, for example only directed towards a malignant tumor.
But a malignant tumor is not the illness but rather the consequence of series of underlying causes, e.g. a weakened immune system, environmental poisons, hormonal changes and a lack of vitamins, mineral and vital substances
By applying complementary diagnostics, as they are used in the "integrative therapy concept", those causes are uncovered and systematically eliminated.
In meaningful ways complementary therapy supports and supplements conventional therapy.
It is neither a contradiction, nor an alternative but a meaningful extension and an improvement, so the patient can,
* overcome his illness faster and more efficient
* improve his quality of life and thus
* achieve a higher quality of lifetime
Basic therapies include the following:
* A change of lifestyle
* Dietary change
* Physical exercise
* Elimination of environmental toxins (smoking, alcohol, drugs etc.)
* Supplementation with vitamins, minerals, trace elements, vital substances etc.
* Modulation of the immune system
* Hormonal balance
