Herbs in garden

A possible downside of the modern western medical system is that most doctors can only treat a specific number of ailments or a specific part of the anatomy. Also, many doctors tend to treat symptoms as opposed to digging deeper to discover ways of improved prevention of future disease or illnesses.

The herbalist method, Naturheilverfahren, takes a more holistic, ganzheltich, approach to the body and metabolism of patients. Through improvements to diet and homeopathic therapy, many German specialists have returned individuals to good health.

The method has always been hotly debated, rejected and often disregarded as being ineffective. Even in Germany, where Samuel Hahnemann is reputed to have discovered the benefits of an alternative approach to medicine.

Beaches in Düsseldorf

Düsseldorf may not be on the top of the list for seaside destinations.
