It is mainly due to our modern Lifestyle, that problems with joint and bone health have become epidemic. Today joint and back pain are the main causes for early disability. Bone loss – diagnosed as osteopenia or os¬teo¬poro¬sis – are also increasing in prevalence, especially among women. Mus¬cu-loskele¬tal disorders – problems with muscles, tendons, nerves, disks, etc. – have become an own industry.
Osteoporosis and Osteopenia
Osteoporosis (accelerated bone resorption and extended brittleness of the bones) is an ever-increasing diagnosis. On one hand this is related to the increasingly older, overall population – since at an old age everyone sooner or later suffers from osteoporosis. Other reasons are our prone-to-overacidification dietary habits, environmental pollution with heavy metals, which particularly deposit in bone, medication and the already fairly wide-spread vitamin D deficiency. Physical inactivity is also a major factor, though it is within the patient’s own responsibility to exercise.
Osteoarthritis & Joint Pain
Osteoarthritis is a degeneration of cartilage, which in turns, causes chronic inflammation and stiffness within the joints. The condition can be incredibly painful and frustrating, even debilitating.
In biological medicine we take a new approach. We begin by dissecting the root causes and from there, rebuild an efficient and non-invasive treatment plan.
By removing toxins from the body, adding supplements that provide necessary trace elements and minerals, and changing the diet, so as to encourage cartilage rebuilding, we have been quite successful in treating osteoarthritis patients. In fact: most of all who comes to us, get significantly better. It does involve a long term process. In the short terms: with our therapy patients stabilize within just a few weeks. Over a long term our success rate has been extremely positive!
Polyneuropathy is a nerve disorder, which can affect any of the peripheral nerves, namely those within the arms, legs, hands and feet. Generally, symmetrical in its course, this disorder can be quite troublesome for sufferers as they must cope with persistent weakness, a numbness and/or tingling sensation, and often a feeling of burning pain through out the affected areas.
While the causes of polyneuropathy are numerous, we often find that other chronic conditions contribute to its onset. Diabetes, for example, often causes polyneuropathy. Called “diabetic neuropathy”, this version usually begins in the legs and feet, and if not treated correctly can be crippling, and in advanced cases, even fatal. Other conditions that often involve polyneuropathy includes: cancer, kidney problems, various types of infections, and chronic toxicity. In the latter case we always find heavy metal toxins in the body, particularly lead, mercury and arsenic – all incredibly damaging to the nervous system.
Biologic medicine maintains a very straightforward approach where polyneuropathy is concerned; we investigate as far as potential causes and incorporate the results into the overall treatment program. The first step usually is to reinstate normal bacterial balance within the intestine. Most of the time patients present, with elevated levels of harmful bacteria. This imbalance can in fact give rise to chronic conditions, such as polyneuropathy. Intensive intestinal upbuilding represents the core of our treatment strategy. We also focus on reinvigorating and upbuilding the immune system as well.
