We are living in a time where almost all foods are produced at high speed on an industrial scale. Fruit and vegetables are available all year round - regardless of the season. Long-term storage in fruit warehouses and synthetic ripening methods mean that conventional fruit and vegetables in supermarkets have practically no or radically reduced amounts of vitamins, minerals, trace elements, vegetable fats, and enzymes. You believe you're eating a healthy diet - but you mostly eat bulking agents instead of food.
Countless pesticides, preservatives, artificial flavors, colorings, and fragrances also inhibit the effectiveness of natural ingredients such as vitamins and enzymes.
Convenience food and fast food have so many inflammation-promoting artificial ingredients that can cause permanent inflammation in the small intestine, which means that the few remaining nutrients in these foods can only be absorbed to a limited extent.
The body needs many vitamins, minerals, trace elements, enzymes, proteins, anti-inflammatory cis-fats as well as four phospholipids as building blocks for cell membranes, nerve structures, mucous membranes and numerous secondary plant substances (orthomolecular medicine) to cope with everyday life and maintain health. These are the elementary building blocks that make life possible.
Without a balanced supply of proper vitamins, etc., the risk of chronic deficiencies is markedly increased. Healing and anti-inflammatory medicine, which maintains essential physiological feedback control loops and cycles, is virtually unthinkable today without the support of orthomolecular medicine.
Nutritional medicine is becoming increasingly important as a key component of many different medical specialties and as an integral part of medical practice, including in our own practice. With her knowledge of metabolism and pathophysiology, Dr. Mahlmann has delved deeply into this area and ensures that patients with conditions such as obesity, intestinal diseases, MCAS, intolerances, diseases from the rheumatic spectrum, neurodegenerative diseases, and cardiovascular diseases are treated with the greatest possible success.
We regularly diagnose deficiencies in our patients in:
- Vitamin C
- Vitamin D
- Almost all B vitamins
- Vitamin E
- Omega-3 fats
- Inflammatory markers in the small intestine
We use laboratory chemistry to precisely measure individual deficiencies and specifically compensate for any deficits of internal organs in terms of their functional capability and self-regulation.
