Abstract

STANGE, Abteilung fur Naturheilkunde, Charite - Universitatsmedizin Berlin, Berlin, Germany, has written about the naturopathic dietary treatment of gastrointestinal disorders.

Abstract: When applied to functional disorders, dietary treatment – the most important measure in natural medicine – has its greatest effect when these disorders affect the gastrointestinal tract, in particular epigastric dyspepsia and irritable bowel syndrome. On the basis of a comprehensive dietary history, it is often possible to identify foodstuffs and eating behaviour capable of aggravating the patient’s symptoms. The underlying basic principle of treatment is that the gastrointestinal tract needs to first undergo a temporary period of rest before being gradually re-accustomed to a biologically high-quality diet. A central approach includes various forms of fasting therapy, in particular in the case of severe conditions, which can usefully be supported by additional relaxation techniques, Psychotherapy, Hydrotherapy, Massage and special manual techniques.

Comment

It is a shame that much Naturopathic research coming out of Germany is not published in English, as it would be informative to have greater details for such clinical treatments as Psychotherapy, Hydrotherapy, Massage and Manual techniques.
