Conventional medicine plus
The multi-modal treatment at the Krankenhaus für Naturheilweisen is based on classical state-of-the art conventional medicine. Complementary medicine is used as addition to the therapy, i.e. established naturopathic and homeopathic methods that have a supportive effect for the therapy and promote the body's self-healing abilities.

More about complex naturopathic treatment
Naturopathic procedures are methods that act as a stimulus and thereby stimulate the self-healing and regulating abilities of the organism. Hence, naturopathy uses stimuli such as light, water, food, movement, cold, heat, medicinal herbs, etc. as healing and treatment method. The treatment targets those abilities and strengths that normally promote health and integrity and that can often even be triggered in a sick organism.
Homeopathy is an independent medicinal therapy developed by the German physician, chemist and pharmacist Samuel Hahnemann.
