What are the disadvantages of preventive medicine


Preventive medicine

The term preventive care is mostly used in connection with examinations of healthy people (e.g. colonoscopies, prostate examinations with the PSA test, etc.); Prevention means taking measures to prevent the development of a disease. Implementing both correctly means giving people a greater degree of self-determination about their health and thus enabling them to strengthen their health.

We understand preventive medicine primarily as an optimization of various phases of life.

What can be done medically during the menopause (also when the man's performance is declining), in stressful phases, in retirement, when mental abilities decline, etc. What is good for me, to what extent. With so many offers via the media, personal selection is difficult. We will advise you (also about the possible medical aid options) for your individual benefit, even if your illness no longer allows you to exercise and nutrition programs.

Up to now, even for cardiovascular specialists, preventive medical aspects had only a subordinate role until about 1998, but the studies from 1990 onwards speak such a clear language that every doctor today would be obliged to implement the results of the prevention studies. This requires an in-depth study of the subject.

The musculoskeletal system is the largest human organ. But how do you get it going when it has been lying idle for years? We help you to get started with a more body - stressed way of life. At the same time, we provide you with numerous opportunities to eat and drink with pleasure. We develop optimized nutrition and training programs for athletes (if necessary after appropriate performance and stress tests). Which diet and exercise modifications have positive effects on the hormonal cycle? If you are already "previously damaged", we will try to prevent further aggravation together with you, and we will see which symptoms are reversible. It's never too late for that! Preventive medicine is also useful in old age, against cancer and dementia, for more joy in life!

About the impact of Exercise therapy (as a possible component of preventive medicine):

The most recent studies clearly show that physical activity reduces both overall mortality and cardiovascular mortality more impressively than previously assumed, in a dose-response relationship: the more intense the physical activity, the more the risks decrease, except as always : the benefits diminish in the case of exaggeration or in the case of increased intensity too quickly after long periods of inactivity.
Disadvantages of physical activity can be neglected if preventive examinations are carried out and reasonable training and regeneration times are observed. So far, only 13 percent of us Germans have moved so much that a preventive effect is achieved, which shows the enormous potential that a rethinking process could bring about.

We subdivide physical activity In certain efficiencies, for example, "moderate physical activity" corresponds to an ergometer load of 75 to 100 watts. Today we know that even moderate but regular exercise such as walking or brisk walks are already very effective, something that had previously been completely underestimated! In contrast, physically inactive people are up to 90% more likely to develop coronary artery disease The risk factor inactivity is just as great as a high cholesterol or smoking. Almost all studies confirm this clarity; the genetic components of longevity also play a role, but this was previously overestimated.
We also know today that especially the elderly benefit, who previously believed that "there is no more flower pot to be won" from them. The data on this is "overwhelming"; In total, more than 400,000 people for up to 25 years were observed in 30 studies (meta-analyzes).
Physical activity leads to a variety of muscular, cardiovascular and metabolic adaptation processes, blood coagulation and inflammation factors are also influenced (measurable e.g. in fibrinogen, C-reactive protein), which suggests an anti-inflammatory effect of training. We can provide many more hard facts that show the general advantages of dosed exercise, but we give our recommendations very individually, especially with regard to "prescribed" exercise therapy (also for pain patients). Latent and manifest diseases must be taken into account (see also under "Sports Medicine").

However, since the almost revolutionary new knowledge about special forms of nutrition has not yet flowed into these study results on exercise therapy described here, significantly better results can be achieved with complex preventive medicine, keyword omega 3 fatty acids, with immense potential to eliminate or remove cardiac arrhythmias Reduce pain metabolism (see "fibromyalgia", "anti-inflammatory diet")
