Digestive Disorders

Digestive disorders — from bloating to gas to indigestion, chronic gastrointestinal conditions are pervasive health issues for many people, especially those who are already coping with another ailment. Orthodox medicine tends to isolate digestive disorders as issues of a single system as opposed to challenges to your overall health. And if gastroscopies or colonoscopies do not reveal anything anatomically irregular (for example, a tumor or visible inflammation), the problems are often dismissed, referred to as irritable bowel syndrome (IBS), declared a psychosomatic problem and ultimately left untreated. By contrast, Biological Medicine views the gut as the root of all diseases and attributes the intestinal system to a myriad of biological processes. It is considered the body’s most important regulatory force, a crucial detox organ and central to both the immune system as well as the unconscious nerve system, especially the parasympathetic system. Biological Medicine traces numerous chronic diseases such as autoimmune disorders and allergies to disturbances in the intestinal system.

At Paracelsus, doctors first examine intestinal bacteria, as the intestines are the cell-richest organ in the human body. Intestinal bacteria are responsible for absorbing heavy metals, organic and lipophilic toxins and are often in deficit for cancer patients and patients with Fibromyalgia or MCS (multiple chemical sensitivity). They also bind with bile toxins and are important for liver detoxification.

Secondly, intestinal mucous membranes are examined as they are the site of histamine and serotonin production, which interfere not only with allergies but also mood, concentration, sleep, etc. They are also where Peyer’s patches are located, home to 80-90 % of the body’s T-Lymphocytes (immune cells). When the intestinal mucous membranes are leaky, the wrong type of bacteria can begin affecting the body.

Conventional methods do not commonly detect these phenomena, but tests administered at Paracelsus such as Regulation thermography (CRT), Darkfield microscopy, comprehensive stool analysis, HRI (heart rate variability), blood test for food allergies and blood and urine tests for histamine, zinc, heavy metals, serotonin and other neurotransmitters provide a concise picture of the intestinal function — and also gives Biological Medicine doctors the basis for intensive treatments. This allows the patient to heal from diseases which have lasted for years, like allergies and auto immune diseases — and is particularly helpful adjunct therapy for cancer patients.

The basic intestinal treatment centers around diet, avoiding major food allergens while adding nutrient dense foods that provide the optimal combination of essential amino acids, lactic acids and minerals to rebuild the intestinal membrane and provide a good foundation for “good” intestinal bacteria. Probiotics are then administered for a short term along with specific algaes and essential fatty acids. Additional therapies vary depending on the patient’s condition and can include any of the following: lymphatic stimulation and cleansing, increasing the parasympathetic intestinal nerve system, hydro-colonic therapies and reflorastation of the intestinal bacteria, supplements and other natural medications, Dr. Rau’s neural therapy, pulsed magnetic field and local hyperthermia (Indiba). For the long term, diet continues to be crucial as well as immune support.
