Gastro – Gut – Renovation

A well working digestive system is a required condition for our general well being. Food intolerances need to be identified and taken into consideration very early.

The below mentioned gastro – gut – section irritations cause metabolic disorders and are treated in our practice.

Certain food influences the tissue hormone histamin. The histamin reaction is responsible for pseudoallergic symptoms. Typical pseudoallergic reactions which are food indigestibilities that can appear for from a few minutes up to a few hours are circulatory disturbances, heart races, vomiting, diarrhea, skin reactions (70-80% of all food indigestibilities are reflected through the skin), etc.

Practically all food can cause allergies. Pseudoallergies need to get tested individually and often appear with the following substances:

  • Milk products from the cow
  • Wheat
  • Yeast
  • Coffee
  • Sugar
  • Red wine
  • Sparkling wine
The inheritedfructose intolerance appears 1:130 000 and describes an inherited shortage of fructose phosphate aldolase. This enzyme defect causes liver and kidney damage as well as hypolglycemia.

Fructose is actively received as monosaccharide via the GLUT-5 transportation system from the gut. This reception is affected at the time of fructose absorption.

Disorders of the intestinal GLUT-5 transportation system which is the limiting factor for the fructose reception can be inherited (very rare) or acquired.

The fructose non reception is the first step of the therapy. Food and medication containing sorbite is absolutely to be avoided as sorbite blocks the GLUT-5-transportation system. At the beginning fruits are not allowed, especially dry fruits, later on fruits have to be combined with glucose as they improve the fructose reception.

The following food contains a great deal of fructose:

  • dry fruits
  • figs
  • dates
  • plums
  • oranges
  • fruit juices
  • fresh fruits
  • jams
  • honey
  • beer
Lactose intolerance is the best examined carbohydrate metabolism enzyme defect. Lactose intolerance is produced by a misproportion between the supply of lactose and lactase activity. In Central Europe this illness exists with 30% of the population.

After the consumption of milk or milk products symptoms such as gut stimulation with fermentation dyspepsy appear; meteorism, diarrhea, pains followed by colics with mucus are typical. The intensity of the symptom atomics depends on the above mentioned misproportion between the amount of the received lactose and the remaining lactase activity as well as the intestinal guts flora.
Keep in mind that milk sugar and milk powder are part of many industrial foods. Chocolate, biscuits and ready to eat meals are often rich in milk sugar. Milk sugar is also used in medicine as a filling in tablets.

The occurrence of symptomic candidosis is a sign of weakening or over strain of the immune system. The tracking down of the underlying reasons is very important, especially for a long term prognosis.

Typical candidosis symptoms are tiredness, fatigue, listlessness, fermentation dyspepsis, meteorism, food intolerance, a spastic and hypotone gut and a radix congestion.

The candidosis therapy is always a combination of diet and orthomolecular therapy.

Around 25% of the population is infested by parasites. As a result of the increasing travel statistics it is possible that the spread of infection increases, especially for babies and children. Parasitosis disturbs the gut barrier function through parasite metabolic products.

A characteristic for parasitosis is a rythmical trouble occurrence according to the parasitic generation zyclus. Perianal itching is a very frequent and most remarkable symptom.
