Inflammation Diagnostics

Detecting hidden danger

Practically all illnesses stem from acute and/or chronic inflammation and in most cases from chronic hyperacidity. Consequently, inflammatory and acid/base diagnostics are of crucial importance.

Inflammation can be caused by bacteria, viruses, fungi, parasites, innumerable and nowadays widespread environmental toxins, fast food and other malnutrition (chemistry in food), various types of radiation, and prolonged stress.

Inflammation can occur anywhere in the body. The most common type of inflammation, often unnoticed by patients themselves, is in the intestines (so-called leaky gut), in the central and peripheral nervous system, in muscle and connective tissue, as well as in the joints and thyroid gland. This means that we cannot examine each organ independently, but should focus our attention on the interaction of the individual organs. The so-called "gut-brain axis " has been scientifically proven, as has the interaction of the thyroid hormones – in particular with the hormones of the adrenal glands, which in turn are influenced by the gut.

Causes of inflammation are:

  • Bacteria
  • Viruses
  • Fungal infections
  • 85,000 common environmental toxins (see CERCLA list)
  • Wi-Fi radiation (defined by the WHO as a cancer risk) to radiation therapy for cancer
  • Genetic predisposition to inflammation
  • Genetic enzyme defects
  • Abnormal intestinal flora
  • Deficiencies in vitamins, trace elements, minerals, enzymes, amino acids
  • Dysfunctional acid/base balance
  • Countless food additives (pro-inflammatory foods)
  • Convenience food, fast food

The Key to Root Cause Analysis

Our internal organs work in harmony like the sprockets of a clock. Once inflammation has become chronic (including latent subliminal chronic inflammation that persistently simmers on a small flame, known as "silent inflammation"), there is a risk that it may develop into an autoimmune disease.

Chronic inflammation and autoimmune diseases increase the likelihood of developing cancer later in life. To counter this risk as early as possible, detailed and in-depth inflammation diagnostics are useful and beneficial.

Depending on your individual medical history, we carefully examine the various pro-inflammatory and anti-inflammatory systems. Latent underlying older infections, as well as pervasive environmental pollution, often play a role here. In all cases, a check must be made to see whether inflammation has already become an autoimmune condition.
