Rheumatism – Alternative Treatment & Therapie

The general term “rheumatism” refers to dozens of different diseases of the rheumatic spectrum, which mainly affect the musculoskeletal system. Patients with rheumatism suffer from blurred and flowing pains, as well as from pulling and tearing pains in the musculoskeletal apparatus. They often come hand in hand with functional limitations.

The spectrum of inflammatory rheumatic diseases is wide and ranges from temporary arthritis of just a few joints without permanent damage to severe progressive arthritis where the joints are destroyed, causing severe disability for the patient. Many inflamatory rheumatic diseases are not restricted to the musculoskeletal system, and also affect internal organs, eyes or skin; these are systemic diseases who prefer aflicting the musculoskeletal system.

The rheumatic diseases include, e.g.:
rheumatoid arthritis
seronegative spondylarthropathies
connective tissue disease
rheumatic fever
diseases of soft tissues
often, joint diseases with infections and partially also degenerative joint and spine diseases are associated with rheumatic diseases.

For many diseases of the rheumatic spectrum, a disorder of the immune system is manifested, after which the body attacks its own structures, such as the synovium (in rheumatoid arthritis). These so-called autoimmune diseases can – in the form of collagenose – occur as systemic diseases in which not only an organ or a body region is targeted, but similar tissue in many diferent organs are targeted by a misguided immune system. The causes for this malfunction of the immune system are still unknown.

Typical symptoms in rheumatic diseases are joint pain, joint swelling, joint stiffness, joint deformity, as well as tendon and bursa pain. Many rheumatic diseases develop symptoms on the eyes as well as on internal organs. General mood disorders can be very strong, especially in acute phases; they affect the entire organism. These include weakness, loss of appetite, weight loss and also moderate fever. Many patients complain of psychological problems or adverse drug reactions.
For the exact classification of a diagnosis, the detection of antibodies and genetic markers in the patient’s blood is an important factor. Various imaging techniques, in particular the conventional radiography, computed tomography, magnetic resonance imaging and scintigraphy are used to confirm the diagnosis, to determine the stage of the disease and to monitor progress.
In the Center for Hyperthermia in Hanover we recommend the following therapies for the treatment of rheumatism:

Whole Body-Hyperthermia
The healing effect of whole-body hyperthermia for patients with rheumatism is that we can very quickly bring the organism to high temperatures (up 40.5 °). This fast and high heating activates not only the immune system, but many degenerate cells are destroyed by the fast floods of heat. In addition to the damage or removal of possible cancer cells, the whole-body hyperthermia activates the immune system significantly without burdening the rest of the body. It triggers an immune cascade that enables the white blood cells to multiply.

The Wega test is performed on patients with rheumatism using a low pulse current device to search for interference fields in the organism by means of electrical stimulation. In addition, the therapists at the Hyperthermia Centre Hannover can assess the energetic condition of a patient, which is extremely helpful for the efficient handling of rheumatism. Based on Electro acupuncture, according to Dr. Voll the Wega-test can detect inflammation, organ stress or interference fields in the dental area or recognizes organ correlations and analyses the effects of viruses, bacteria or pollutants.

With bio-resonance testing we analyze substances and their effect on the body of a patient with rheumatism. This is a very fast and completely painless process. In many cases we can identify which substance will lead to ill-health (such as heavy metals, bacteria, viruses, Electro Smog, dental materials, allergens etc.), which is essential for an efficient treatment of rheumatism. As an essential supplement to other treatments and examinations, the bio-resonance testing can give important diagnostic and therapeutic assistance.

A bio-scan is a bioenergetic diagnostic procedure, used to scan the body’s energy level. A bioscan measures the entire human energy system. It is fast and painless. Through a visual representation of all body organs and systems – right down to the blood cells – , the negative (or burdening) factors can be determined (even with rheumatoid patients). Using a bio-sensor, the bio-scan checks the frequency pattern of all organs and systems; a specialized software helps identify the healthy and the stressed organs.

Nutritional counseling / therapy
Diet alone cannot heal rheumatism, but vital, substance-rich, whole food nutrition with enough fibre, along with secondary plant compounds such as carotenoids and chlorophyll contained in many types of vegetables, can help strengthen the immune system and better the overall constitution. We are happy to advise about appropriate diets that will suit you.

Infusions with high doses Vitamin C
At the Hyperthermia Centre Hannover we treat patients with rheumatism successfully with high-doses of vitamin C. The so-called ascorbic acid is the most popular vitamin and the most important antioxidant – i.e. it intercepts harmful free radicals in the body and makes them harmless – and in this way prevents the degeneration of cells. Vitamin C is also essential for the immune system and various restructuring processes in the body. When vitamin C is given in a high dosage, the treatment of rheumatism can be positively affected.

Neural therapy assumes that chronic ailments are caused by „interference fields“. Each part of the body, and each pathologically altered organ in the body can become an interference field. For the treatment of rheumatism, an anti-inflammatory anesthetic will be injected into the abnormal tissue structure – primarily in the Head zone – which causes relief to the aching body area and therefore also to the corresponding organ.

Thymus injections
In the thymus gland over 40 different factors act together to build and maintain a powerful immune system. With age, the fist-sized thymus behind the breastbone shrivels to the size of a raisin. That is why older people are more susceptible to diseases such as Rheumatism but also to infections and to cancer. At the Center for Hyperthermia in Hanover, we can compensate this deficit by treating our patients with thymus hormones (obtained from the glands of young calves). This treatment with active agents from the thymus glands strengthens and regulates the body’s natural defenses and manages immunological responses of the body; it also affects the aging process.
