SOMATIC METHODS OF DIAGNOSTICSAND TREATMENT
- Detection of possible hazards such as contaminates (e.g., chemicals and mold) and nutritional deficiencies (e.g., vitamins, minerals, and trace elements)
- Determination of genetic polymorphisms (genetics variants) of liver detoxification processes (bio-transformation of impurities through phase-1 and phase-2 reactions)
- Genetic variations of processes in the transportation of the neurotransmitter serotonin and genetic variations in serotonin-receptors; i.e., those structures on to which serotonin docks when neural information is passed on. Analyses of such “genetic variations” make it possible to make individual predictions on the efficacy of certain antidepressants.
- Analysis of enzymatic anti-oxidants (SOD2-Gene-Test)
- Genetic analyses in the area of hormones, the Vitamin-D receptor and various transmitter substances
- Screening the body for absorbed vitamins, minerals and trace elements
- Screening for food allergies, histamine-intolerance and fructose-intolerance, which can all negatively influence one’s mental wellbeing
- Checking the melatonin-levels in persons suffering from sleep disorders such as insomnia or from seasonal-affective disorder.
- Measuring levels of testosterone, androgen deficiency and estrogen
- The mitochondria are essential for the energy production of all cells in the organism. The cell is thus viewed at a micro level for diagnostic and therapeutic measures.
CONCEPT OF NITROSATIVE STRESS
- Utilisation of the concept of Nitrooxidative Stress [elevated levels of nitric oxide] by Martin L. Pall, Professor for Biochemistry and Basic Medical Sciences (Washington State University), as a therapeutic starting point for illnesses such as Chronic Fatigue Syndrome, Multiple Chemical Sensitivity, and Fibromyalgia.
