Good health is essential to be able to enjoy life to the full. However, modern society is not always kind to our constitution. Unwanted chemicals invade our bodies, our diet is often of poor quality and hardly anyone escapes stress. That's why we need extra care to stay healthy. Should we get sick, we must not focus merely on the disease, but restore the natural balance of the entire body to prevent new problems. This can only be done by treating it as a whole. Not like a faulty machine that needs the adjustment of one screw or needs a part replaced, but like the highly sensitive complexity of physical and mental processes we are. This complexity can develop, with the right aid, gigantic self-healing powers. To reach these powers, we draw on the knowledge of all times and all cultures. We employ manners of healing that have evolved for thousands of years in the Middle East and Far East, which have proven to be effective, and without risk.
The medical world is in constant development. Virtually every day discoveries are made and a new medication appears. To keep up with these rapid changes, the PMC is involved in many scientific research projects. This is one of the reasons you can be assured that our insights in and treatment of your condition will be fully up to date. This keeping up to date is essential to our philosophy. A healthy person is not someone who isn't ill, but someone who is strong enough to ward off most diseases, and stand up to the ones he/she cannot. This means: preventative health care. A successful treatment starts with the right diet and an individually balanced use of food supplements. Also: to keep or restore our health, we have to pay attention to our mental powers and processes. We do not take the easy way of fighting the symptoms and resort to short term solutions. That's why we work for your health with a team of physicians and specialists. Co-operation increases ability and knowledge.
We start each treatment with a thorough evaluation of your actual condition. We categorise your strengths and weaknesses and pay attention to potential risks. Next, we select from our vast array of therapies the one most suitable for you. Moreover, we involve you in the treatment by advising you what you can do at home or at work to enjoy life as much as possible, according to your wishes and potential. Thus you will find out that being healthy is more than not being sick. Whether you are a top athlete striving for new records, a manager in a stressful environment or a senior citizen who wants to enjoy the company of his/her grandchildren for as long as possible and without disturbing old age infirmities: mental balance and physical vitality can be obtained by nearly everyone. So you are welcome to our centre, whoever you are. Because we believe your health deserves the best.
Good, varied nutrition in tune with your personal needs and taste, is essential to excellent health. Scientific research often shows that good nutrition prevents numerous illnesses and helps healing considerably. Therefore we give much attention to individual dietary advice. Individual, because the way your body deals with nutrients, is, due to your genetic predisposition and your habits, as unique as your fingerprints. Our nutrition specialists meticulously analyse your eating and drinking habits. Applying blood- and urine tests they trace possible deficiencies or surpluses of vitamins, minerals, amino acids and other vital nutrients. Then, you are given tailor made advice, taking into account your wishes and tastes. For we believe when it comes to food, enjoying the taste of it is as essential an element of the wholesomeness as the ingredients are.
When we strive for optimum health, we often need more of particular nutrients than we can obtain from our food. Especially in the case of illness the body has a highly increased need of certain micro nutrients. That's why we will tell you about the right use of food supplements, be it vitamins, minerals, amino acids, trace elements, oils or herbs. Such supplements can be also be applied therapeutically. This means they can be used to cure diseases, for instance with non-toxic tumour therapy.
When using ultrasound for diagnostic purposes, sound waves beyond human detection are being transferred into (moving) images. With this modern technique we can adequately survey your internal body. And this without using tubes, needles, radioactive x-rays or unpleasant contrast fluids: this method is as safe and painless as making an ordinary photograph. Ultrasound diagnosis enables us to trace heart disease in an early stage and to check heart functions. We also use this technique to examine other organs like the liver, gallbladder, kidneys, prostate, spleen, ovaries and the uterus. Thus we can for instance determine very precisely whether and how an organ responds to one of our therapies. Often it is possible that you can watch the "performance" yourself on the monitor.
Our autonomous nervous system controls all of our involuntary bodily functions such as temperature, blood pressure, heartbeat and hormone levels. Disturbances in this network of nerves immediately cause health problems. Neural therapy often helps to alleviate such disturbances. Central in this therapy is the application of procaine, a substance that in regular medicine is used for local anaesthesia. By injecting very small dosages of procaine on specific points over the nerves, disturbances can be eliminated. Scientific research and practical experience show that in this way many complaints can be dealt with excellent results. Some examples: articular complaints, back ache, nerve pains, an affected thyroid, prostate enlargement, chronic inflammation of sinuses, ears and eyes, migraine, hernia, scar tissue pain and vascular problems in arms and legs. The effects can be spectacular, as the clearing of a disturbance often relieve the complaints instantly.
This is a method to remove toxins from the body. This is important, as practically everyone in Western society suffers from chronic chemical poisoning. For instance: cigarette smoke contains cadmium and polonium, and exhaust fumes contain lead or platinum. Analytic comparison between modern man and his prehistoric predecessor show that we have on average a hundred times as much lead in our blood. Another toxin is the mercury from the amalgam fillings in our teeth. Such toxins threaten our health on the cellular level en cause all sorts of damaging processes. With Chelation therapy substances are injected into the blood stream that encapsulate those unwanted toxins. Subsequently the encapsulated toxins leave the body in the urine. There are several chelators that each have a specific effect. As an example: in World War II a chelator was produced that can remove mustard gas (which contains arsenic) from body cells. The oldest substance is still by far the most frequently used one: ethylene-diamino-tetra-acetic acid, or EDTA. EDTA chelation is employed among other things in cases of toxic poisoning by metals such as lead, cadmium, strontium and plutonium. Little by little more and more beneficiary effects of chelation therapy have been discovered. EDTA is a powerful anti-oxidant. It also prevents clotting of blood platelets and reduces obstruction of the blood vessels.
One of the most important qualities of EDTA is that it has a beneficiary effect on our calcium metabolism. This is of great importance, as the gradual "hardening" is an integral part of the ageing process. From the age eighteen everywhere where there's tissue degeneration there is calcium deposit. This deposit in turn promotes further degeneration. Cardiovascular diseases are often the result. EDTA ignores "good" calcium in teeth and bones, yet removes "bad" calcium from our bodies. That's why chelation therapy is often applied with afflictions caused by excessive deposition of calcium, such as arteriosclerosis, sclerosis of the heart valve, arthritis, rheumatism, and muscular disorder. Also chelation therapy is employed when there is indication that your body suffers from toxic overload.
The effect of chelation therapy
Chelation therapy has been employed since the sixties on a large scale, mainly in cases of cardiovascular diseases and hundreds of thousands of patients have benefited by it. Usually, after having been treated for some time, a noticeable improvement of the blood circulation is achieved. People with arthritic disorders are better able to walk and in the case of angina pectoris the complaints decrease. Also the skin often regains its healthy temperature and colour. Healthy people, who undergo this therapy as part of an anti-ageing treatment, often notice that numerous vague complaints like inability to concentrate, chronic fatigue, headache and depression disappear. Moreover, chelation therapy has proven its use in cases of advanced, serious disorders. It has served as a successful alternative for life threatening bypass operations and has even forestalled the necessity to amputate (in cases of "smoker's leg).
Duration and nature of the treatment will be adapted to your specific circumstances and needs. For healthy adults who want to cleanse their body thoroughly and keep their veins in optimum condition, we generally recommend a course of twenty to thirty treatments. You would be coming in once or twice a week for a number of months. After that, as a rule you can maintain the achieved result with monthly treatments. Patients with a heart disease, who have had myocardial infarction(s), or have been operated on for a bypass or other coronary adjustment and/or are on extensive medication, often need more treatments before they are free of complaints and are able to stop taking medication. During the treatment the chelator is brought into your blood vessel intravenously. This will take three to four hours, during which you will be seated comfortably in an armchair while you may read or converse with the other patients. Every five to seven treatments, your blood is tested to measure the effect, and your organ functions are monitored.
In organotherapy foetal animal tissue extract is being used to enable the body to heal itself. Ageing or sometimes damaged organs and tissues happen to heal if cell extracts of the same organs and tissues of animals are administered. A number of persistent abrasion processes that have proven to be irreversible with all other treatments can be reversed in this manner. Therefore organotherapy can be applied for degenerative disorders such as rheumatic arthritis, osteoporosis, blood circulation disorder or a weakened immune system. Disturbances of the nervous system and the brain that lead to depression or mental deterioration should also be treated with organotherapy. For example, Parkinson's disease can be confined and as much as possible reduced by applying organotherapy. It can also be used for healthy people who want to slow down the ageing process.
How it works
Organotherapy was introduced in the beginning of the nineteen thirties by the Swiss physician Prof. Dr. Paul Niehans. Although the principle of the method has not changed, the technique of practical application has been refined and improved over and over again. In the last sixty years many tens of thousands of people have been treated with organotherapy successfully. Why it works may still be a mystery today, the fact that it works is beyond doubt. Over a thousand scientific studies have proven this irrefutably.
One example of such a study: by marking the tissue extract, researchers have been able to ascertain what exactly happens with the substance after it has been injected. Suppose that cell extract of the liver has been injected. The separate parts such as the cytoplasm, mitochondria and nuclei containing the DNA are being transported by the white blood cells through the vessels. During the first four to five hours after the injection the parts are being transported through the entire body. The next forty-eight hours however something important happens: like small pieces of iron to a magnet these parts are as it were being attracted by the liver. About ninety percent of all the injected cell material finds it's way to the liver, where it produces the raw material and the power for the organ to mend itself. This healing process has been proven both by the successful treatment of fifty thousand people and by laboratory tests.
Prior to the treatment, you will undergo a full medical check-up. Special attention will be potential centres of infection that may disrupt the working of organotherapy. Treatment itself consists of one or more injection into the muscle tissue of your upper leg or posterior, whereby the cell extract is being inserted into your body. Dependent on your specific complaints, particular extracts will be employed. Foetal tissue extract from the organ, which needs support, will be used to regenerate each organ or part selectively. For general regeneration placenta cell extracts can be used. All extracts are produced in Germany, applying advanced techniques in specialised laboratories, which are monitored meticulously by the German authorities. Therefore administering these preparations is absolutely safe.
Chances are great that directly after the treatment you will feel very energetic and physical complaints will be alleviated considerably. After that the process will continue imperceptably. Some people will feel somewhat tired while the old complaints return. After approximately two weeks you will start to feel the regeneration process in your body again. You become more energetic, regain your joy of living, and old complaints diminish or even disappear. The wholesome effect of organotherapy will last for at least six months but can be noticeable even much longer than that. Sometimes a single treatment suffices to relieve you of certain discomforts. If wanted the treatment can be repeated at set times. Not only if you are sick, also if you want to stay as fit as possible for your entire life.
Can organotherapy rejuvenate you?
There are no resources that can make us younger. Organotherapy will not restore our youth. It can however reverse some ageing processes. Unfortunately everyone has weak spots in the body that are subject to fast deterioration. Healthy people who undergo organotherapy, feel themselves overflowing with youthful energy and will often start to look younger: the blood circulation in the skin will improve, resulting in a better looking skin with less wrinkles and lines, and your body weight will move closer to it's optimum. That's why we recommend organotherapy to people who want to stay in good shape well into old age. From the age of forty we recommend an annual treatment with individually selected tissue extracts.
The thymus gland is sometimes referred to as "the director of the immune system". It belongs to the lymph system and produces a number of substances important for the (auto-) immune system. With ageing however the thymus declines in size and efficiency. As a result our resistance diminishes. The production of white blood cells, needed by the body to ward off infections, decreases. Numerous studies have shown that a healthy and productive thymus greatly improves our health and slows the ageing process. By injecting animal thymus cell extracts we enable your gland to regenerate itself. We recommend thymus therapy when a disease affects the immune system. Cancer and AIDS patients can benefit from this therapy. With healthy people it can be used to slow down the ageing process. Treatment is similar to organotherapy.
Ozone is formed from oxygen under influence of sunlight or electric discharges such as lightning. Although it exists in a natural environment (is essential to it), it has become somewhat notorious, as it is also an unwanted by-product in exhaust fumes, especially on a hot day. Overexposure to ozone leads to a number of complaints, from headache to breathing difficulty. Small dosages of ozone however, when introduced directly into the bloodstream, prove to have numerous beneficiary effects. It has strong disinfecting effect: it kills bacteria and viruses and wards off infections. Furthermore it greatly improves the blood circulation. Research into these effects has been carried out on a large scale, mainly in Germany. The results assure us that ozone therapy is a safe way to improve our health clearly and demonstrably.
Ozone therapy: when?
This treatment is applicable in a wide scale of complaints. Because of it's disinfecting capacity it is often used to treat persistent infections. For instance serious cases of candida and herpes simplex may be cured or alleviated. After a severe infection illness ozone helps to clear the residues of the viruses and bacteria. Ozone therapy also enhances the immune system, so it can be applied to reduce the sensitivity towards some recurring infections, allergies or skin disorder. Sometimes ozone therapy helps to clear mental depression. Ozone can be deployed in cases of liver disease, because it aids the liver in its important detoxification task. The discharge of waste substances is promoted by the enhancement of the metabolism. This may have beneficiary effects in the case of a skin disorder, but also with arteriosclerosis and cancer. When ozone therapy is used as a support in cases of cardiovascular diseases, several serious complications can be prevented. We also have achieved great results with the M.E. syndrome (severe chronic fatigue).
For the treatment a small hypodermic needle is inserted into a vein in your arm. Next, some blood is drawn off. Medicinal oxygen and ozone is added to this blood, which is then injected back into your bloodstream. To enhance the positive effect of this treatment, it is often combined with chelation therapy and vitamin and mineral injections. Quite soon after the treatment most people notice the disappearance of fatigue (often taken for granted) and they have a renewed sense of vitality. This effect can last three to seven days. Usually it takes between five and ten treatments to achieve a lasting, maximum effect.
The Rumanian physician Dr Anna Aslan discovered in the nineteen forties that her older patients responded very well to injections with an adapted form of procaine, the substance which dentists use for local anaesthesia. Aslan called this new variety H-3, or GEROVITAL. Patients injected with Gerovital, stated to feel rejuvenated, both physically and mentally, and all kinds of geriatric complaints disappeared. Presently Gerovital is a registered medicine, which has been used on a wide scale successfully for it's rejuvenating effect. We apply Gerovital as a part of a general anti-ageing treatment, often in combination with organotherapy and chelation therapy.
Wrinkles belong to ageing, but nobody likes to have too many lines, puckers and furrows. Collagen plays an important part in the origination of wrinkles. It is a natural protein that shapes the skin and the tissues directly underneath the skin. If this subcutaneous layer starts to diminish, due to ageing or illness, wrinkles appear. We can make these lines disappear safely and effectively by filling them up with collagen. For this we use Zyderm or Zyplast. With Zyderm we can treat the fine lines around the eyes and lips. With Zyplast, which has been more recently developed and which is stronger, we can fill up the deeper depressions such as the furrows that have formed after years of frowning and smiling. Collagen can also be employed effectively in the treatment of scar tissue. Often in combination with treatment with special cremes of cell extracts and herbal hormone preparations, to achieve maximum effect.
Prior to treatment a simple skin test is performed to check whether you are oversensitive or allergic to the collagen products. One month after this test treatment can commence. With the aid of a small syringe your wrinkles or scar tissue are filled up. The injected collagen degrades very slowly. This is a natural process, which varies from one person to another. To maintain the cosmetic effect, the treatment should be repeated, usually once a year.
Most people reach their optimum weight when they follow our dietary advice and use the supplements we prescribed. If this has not the achieved goal, we recommend detoxing anyway as this is usual the way your body holds on to fluid and fat deposits in order to "dilute" the toxicity level down. check for heavy metals, when high detox them out and do a livercleanse. Liver recovery can be supported with a more Alkaline based diet, lots of raw foods, superfoods, followed by organotherapy, which can be injctions with cell extracts of the hypothalamus, liver , kidney , adrenals. This will support your metabolism and help you to maintain the achieved weight.
A correct position of the spinal column is essential to the optimum performance of the nervous system. Disturbances in the spinal column can create a vast scale health problems and pains. Many chronic ailments, varying from migraine to arthritic signs, can be deduced to problems in the back. Therefore we have at our disposal a department that is specialised in chiropractic.
Which complaints are being treated?
The chiropractor mainly treats people with trouble in the back and neck (lumbago, sciatica, and hernia). If you also have pain in arms, shoulders or legs, migraine, dizzy spells, muscular problems or numbness of limbs chiropractic treatment may solve this. Many people notice that vague complaints such as chronic fatigue and listlessness disappear after correction of the spine by an osteopath, chiropractor, atlas adjustment or manual therapist. You do have to find out which one works best for YOU.
Treatment begins with an evaluation of your complaints and your medical history. X-rays may be necessary to get a better insight in the state of your spinal column and other bone structures. We have all the facilities for that in our centre. Subsequently the chiropractor will correct the position of your spinal column and if necessary advice you on certain exercises that will improve the condition of your back. The nature and extent of your complaint will determine the number of treatments necessary.
Medicine that has developed over a period of four thousand years or longer, offers a different perspective on health and disease. The irrefutable results of Chinese medicine force Western medical science to stop ignoring this valuable source of knowledge. We combine ancient Oriental knowledge with modern Western techniques. For instance, we use electro-acupuncture (no needles!) and possess computerised devices for diagnosis via acupuncture points on hands, ears and feet. These devices are also employed to treat patients.
Hormones influence the functions and health of all our organs. The right levels of hormones can even have regenerating effect. A deficiency or surplus of certain hormones however can cause illness or rapid ageing. A well-known example is the decreasing production of progesterone and oestrogen in women after menopause. Disorders such as osteoporosis and arteriosclerosis can result from this. Yet there are many other hormones that determine our well being. Some examples: the adrenal glands produce stress hormones and DHEA, the "youth and slimming hormone", the hypophysis produces, while we sleep, the growth hormone that stimulates regeneration and the pineal gland produces melatonine that regulates the day/night rhythm. Disease, stress or old age can disrupt the production of these hormones. That's why we often find it necessary to measure your hormone levels and if needs be to act accordingly. This sometimes means administering extra hormones. Usually however it suffices to supply your body with the raw material so it can produce the optimum amounts of hormones itself.
Unfortunately many valuable employees are lost to a company because he or she becomes disabled due to a serious illness. Personal distress and financial loss are the result. Yet PMC can often offer a solution. Our experience shows that, with the dedication of such a patient and extensive therapy in many cases partial or full reintegration is possible. In consultation with the employee, the employer and the insurance company we evaluate the (financial) possibilities and draw up plan of treatment. We will give a prognosis of the expected expenses and the duration of the healing process. During treatment we will employ our world-wide network of specialists and technicians. Thus, by giving it all we've got, we have often satisfaction for all parties, and have been able to restore an employee's health, vitality and capacity to work.
Non toxic tumour therapy is an additional treatment for patients with a carcinoma. The advises and treatments which are given in this therapy, are based on scientific studies. The doctors, working with this therapy, are organised in the Dutch society of ortho-molecular oncology and the doctors society of non toxic tumour therapy, and they meet every month to exchange their knowledge.
We strongly recommend having the non toxic tumour therapy in combination with the regular treatments. Due to this treatment there is an improvement in the quality of life and in some cases we see extension of life.
- Dietaryadvises:we start with the dietary advises from Dr. Houtsmuller. It is possible to already start with the diet yourself. We advise two books of Dr. A.J. Houtsmuller: "The Dr. Houtsmullerkookboek" (ISBN 90-313-2734-4) and "The Dr. Houtsmullerdieet" (ISBN 90-313-2489-2).
- Treatment with natural medicine to improve physical and mental condition and to improve your immune system.
- Treatment with vitamins, minerals, amino acids and enzymes.
- Treatment with non toxic supplements with specific tumoursupressing activity.
