Nutritional Medicine and Food Intolerances

"You are what you eat" – Nutritional expertise in Wuppertal

At the private practice of Florian Sänger, we believe that nutrition plays a crucial role in health. Over the last 100 years, there have been significant changes in our diet, with an increasing consumption of industrially processed foods containing various ingredients such as flavor enhancers or preservatives. We now consume less fiber and more sugar than ever before, along with increased alcohol, carbohydrates, salt, and sweets. All these factors negatively impact the gut flora, known as the gut microbiome. The consequences can be severe, ranging from liver cirrhosis to chronic intestinal inflammation, which burdens the entire organism, consuming more resources and negatively affecting the immune system.

Nutritional medicine, as an interdisciplinary treatment method, utilizes knowledge of human nutrition for the healing and relief of diseases. Nutritional medicine is applied in all medical specialties. Due to the steadily increasing number of overweight and obese individuals and the associated diseases such as diabetes or heart diseases, preventive measures in the context of nutritional medicine are becoming increasingly important.

Maintaining the right acid-base balance through nutritional medicine in Wuppertal

How we eat significantly influences our well-being, performance, and health. Stress and unbalanced nutrition cause the acid-base balance to be disrupted in more and more people. This often leads to cellular acidosis in the body, subsequently altering metabolism.

To restore the acid-base balance, we look at our patients individually and holistically. This allows us to recognize interconnected medical conditions and treat them with nutritional medicine methods.

Counteracting loss of vitality and fatigue with nutritional medicine interventions

Common complaints such as loss of vitality, general fatigue, immune or concentration weakness may have their origin in dietary habits. As part of the nutritional medical care in our Wuppertal practice, we collaboratively find a way to boost metabolism through appropriate nutrition and counteract symptoms like fatigue and loss of vitality.

Food intolerances – Treatment methods of nutritional medicine in Wuppertal

When the human body cannot properly digest and absorb a food or food component, it is referred to as food intolerance. These often arise due to a disrupted gut barrier and a condition known as "Leaky Gut." In this situation, undigested proteins from food can enter the body and be recognized as "foreign." This triggers an allergic Type 3 reaction. Typical symptoms of food intolerance include stomach pain, nausea and vomiting, diarrhea, weight loss, and loss of appetite. Within the framework of nutritional medicine in Wuppertal, we find the right treatment method for your complaints. Treatment methods range from medication to rebuilding the gut flora and intestinal cleansing. Therefore, we recommend appropriate diagnostics and subsequent therapy.

Individualized care is our priority, and we work closely with you to achieve the best possible results for your health.
