Over recent decades, the medical viewpoint has changed fundamentally. It is no longer a matter of treating symptoms of a disease independently without addressing the context of how treatment will impact the entire body. Instead, the human being is being seen more and more consistently in its complex and closely interwoven unity of body, mind and soul.
Of course, there are numerous skin diseases that can only be reliably treated with proven conventional medical treatments. As a specialist in dermatology, it is important to address other contributing factors in addition to the dermatological view. When focusing on chronic skin conditions such as acne, eczema and allergies. There are extensive aspects of life such as nutrition, skin care, clothing and the personal living situation need to be considered.
Treatment concept from conventional medicine and natural remedies
In order to assist patients with more comprehensive approaches in diagnostics as well as in counselling and treatment, I have acquired additional important qualifications in the areas of naturopathy, nutritional medicine and psychosomatic primary care. This enables me to see your health problems in the skin in a larger context and recommend you the appropriate treatment options:
Skin & nutrition: what and how you eat has an effect on the skin
In addition to clarifying food allergies, which are often associated with a deterioration in findings of eczema, there are many skin diseases that correlate with diet. For example, dairy consumption has a negative impact on diseases associated with pustules such as acne and rosacea in many patients. Nutrition plays a crucial role as well in chronic inflammatory diseases such as psoriasis. Affected patients can often have a positive influence on inflammatory reactions in their body by avoiding arachidonic acid-containing foods. I generally recommend a plant-based diet.
Skin and natural remedies – there are often kinder alternatives to purely medical therapies
People who suffer from diseased, dry or itchy skin do not necessarily automatically have to be treated with tablets. Naturopathy and homeopathy provide many preparations that help the skin gently without the added strain of medication on the body.
Skin & psyche, a focus that deserves high attention
In modern medicine, the well-known keyword of psychosomatic medicine refers to signs of illness and conditions in which the body and soul are closely interrelated. Since the skin is often affected to a greater extent, I attach great importance to keeping these relationships in mind.
