Therapy of micronutrient deficiencies

Deficiencies can make you sick

For our body to be healthy and efficient, it needs a wide range of nutrients (e.g. healthy fats, proteins, plant substances) as well as micronutrients (vitamins, minerals, trace elements). Deficiencies in these areas may arise, for example, from unbalanced diet, intestinal disorders and / or increased consumption due to stress, disease, etc. Prolonged deficiencies can lead to or contribute to a variety of conditions ranging from reduced performance, sleep disorders, lack of concentration, depression, increased susceptibility to infections, indigestion, weight gain / loss, to the promotion of tumor growth and many other diseases.

Orthomolecular

The two-time Nobel laureate Linus Pauling has pointed to the special role of sufficient availability of micronutrients such as vitamins, minerals and trace elements and coined the term of orthomolecular medicine coined (orthomolecular = "the right substances"). Today it is no longer about the initial idea of high-dose administration of e.g. vitamin C originally developed by Pauling, but balanced provision of all necessary "operating substances", so that our body can maintain its natural function and health.

Recognize and compensate for deficiencies

We have many years of experience in diagnosing and compensating for deficiencies in micronutrients (vitamins, minerals, trace elements, etc.). The missing micronutrients are supplied by specifically rich foods, special dietary supplements or in severe cases also by infusion.
Typical examples of such deficiencies include vitamin D deficiency, which is common in low-sun months, and marked deficiencies in B vitamins, particularly vitamin B12, which is often found among vegetarians.
