Our principles

We work integratively accompanying the conventional treatment. We see the person as a whole, taking into account his or her individual situation. Our complementary medicine services include acupuncture/TCM, Mind Body Medicine, hypnosis, phytotherapy and other naturopathic treatments. Our innovative treatment options combine the latest scientific evidence with profound experience in complementary medicine.
Our interprofessional team has special expertise supporting cancer patients and patients with functional and inflammatory gastrointestinal diseases.

We treat our patients, but also enable them

- to reduce chronic stress
- to cope with chronic symptoms
- to take an active role in the treatment of their symptoms
- to live a healthier life

Our services are specialized and we don’t provide primary care. That’s why good cooperation with other clinics or outpatient health care providers is of great importance for us.

Servcies for patients with functional and inflammatory gastrointestinal diseases

Functional gastrointestinal diseases, such as irritable bowel syndrome, often mean years of recurrent suffering for those affected. The symptoms also repeatedly provoke stress and thus further intensify the subjective complaint.
Chronic intestinal inflammations, such as Crohn's disease or Colitis Ulcerosa, are less frequent but are usually even more physically and mentally stressful in their symptoms.
A higher tolerance for stress can positively influence the progress of the disease and can possibly improve both the quality of life and digestive problems in the active stage of the disease and in remission.
The Institute for Complementary and Integrative Medicine has developed a range of therapies for functional and inflammatory gastrointestinal diseases in cooperation with the the Clinic for Gastroenterology of the University Hospital Zurich.
The referrals will be made by the Clinic for Gastroenterology.
You can find more information about our services for patients with functional and inflammatory gastrointestinal on our German website.
