Health

Physical, mental and also visual health are the central themes of the Body Academy. To improve these, I focus on holistic care, which begins with a comprehensive analysis and anamnesis. Because everyone not only has different problems, desires and goals, but also very individual health and genetic conditions. My approach is that in order to achieve tangible, measurable and visible improvements, one must follow several paths at the same time. Those who optimise their diet, make targeted use of nutritional supplements and other products, and pursue a sensible level of physical fitness have, in my view, the best prerequisites for being healthier, looking better, ageing more slowly and living longer.

Mitochondrial health

Mitochondria are the energy powerhouses of our cells and play a crucial role in our health. Their main function is to produce energy from the food we eat. This takes place primarily through the production of ATP (adenosine triphosphate) within our respiratory chain. Factors such as poor diet, environmental influences, stress and lack of sleep damage and destroy the mitochondria. The result is frequent fatigue, exhaustion, mood swings and a high susceptibility to infections. A high level of damage to the mitochondria also leads to visibly faster ageing of the body, which is often associated with the development of various diseases.
It is possible, however, to restore damaged mitochondria to health. Better still, through certain lifestyle changes, a better diet, nutritional supplements and physical activity such as fitness and relaxation exercises, you can even significantly increase the number of mitochondria in your cells. This not only leads to better health and more vitality, it also leads to a natural anti-aging effect and increases life expectancy! For this reason, mitochondrial health is one of the central topics of the Body Academy, which we deal with particularly intensively.

Immune system health

The immune system is the defence system of the human body. It is a complex network of cells, tissues and molecules that protects the body from harmful influences, foreign substances and pathogens such as bacteria, viruses or cancer cells. 80 per cent of our immune cells are located in the intestine. Our body has an innate immune system that is active from birth and an acquired immune system that develops over the course of life.
The immune system is strongly influenced by various factors such as sleep, stress, exercise or diet. It can be weakened by an unhealthy lifestyle and thus trigger many diseases. The immune system can be sustainably strengthened through a balanced and optimised diet, special food supplements, sufficient exercise and fitness as well as relaxation exercises and sleep.

Metabolic health

Metabolism is a complex process that takes place in every cell of the body and is essential for life. It ensures that the food we eat is converted into energy and made usable for the body’s function. Metabolism is divided into two phases. The build-up metabolism is responsible for the build-up and renewal of body tissue and organs. The breakdown metabolism is responsible for the conversion of nutrients into energy and the excretion of metabolic waste products.

A disturbed metabolism can trigger disease patterns such as hypothyroidism or diabetes. But even slight problems caused by a slowdown in the metabolism can not only cause unsightly fat deposits, but also promote other diseases. To keep the metabolism healthy, good nutrition and physical activity are important. Food supplements can also have a stimulating effect on the metabolism.

Hormone system health

Hormones are important messengers in our body and enable cells and organs to communicate with each other in a targeted manner. Hormones play a decisive role in many, often vital, processes in the body. Among other things, they regulate the energy and water balance, growth and reproduction. Hormones also influence our behaviour, our feelings, our day and night rhythms and our sexuality. A balanced, controlled hormone balance is the basis for good physical and mental health.
A decrease in hormone levels such as testosterone or oestrogen, which is quite normal in old age, inevitably leads to muscle loss, a decline in mental ability or even a weakening of energy and potency. Often, however, obesity and a poor lifestyle are also responsible for poor hormone levels. Through various measures such as diet, various dietary supplements, fitness or sufficient sleep, hormone levels can of course be strongly influenced and kept within the normal range.

Skin health

With an area of almost 2 square metres and almost one sixth of our body weight, the skin is our largest and most visible organ. It consists of three layers, the epidermis, dermis and hypodermis, which in turn consist of several layers such as follicles and glands. The skin plays a crucial role in our state of health and well-being. Not only does it form the first line of defence against bacteria and viruses, it also regulates fluid balance and our body temperature. The skin is highly sensitive and registers even the lightest touch and the slightest pain.
The skin is also a dynamic organ that is constantly changing. Due to the natural ageing process, environmental influences such as sun exposure or lifestyle, the visual changes over the years can be very noticeable. To keep the skin healthy and visually young, there are a variety of possibilities, starting with a good diet, suitable supplements, a healthy amount of exercise and fitness training, regeneration and sleep, but of course also cosmetic products and sun creams. Last but not least, targeted treatments and therapies can stimulate the skin to regenerate better as well as to form new collagen tissue and thus appear younger.

Bone & joint health

Bones are part of the musculoskeletal system. Together with muscles, tendons and ligaments, they enable us to move. They also protect our internal organs such as the heart, lungs and brain. Bones are made up of bone cells and minerals such as calcium and phosphate. Due to their internal structure, bones are stable and at the same time elastic enough to withstand pressure and traction as well as slight bending and twisting.
Muscles are responsible for the movement of the body and are made up of muscle fibres and muscle fibre tissue. Regular exercise and physical activity can help increase muscle mass and improve muscle strength. A balanced diet with sufficient protein is also important for building muscle.
With increasing age, bone density decreases. This bone loss is often the cause of mild to severe back pain. It is not uncommon for this to be accompanied by a deformation of the skeletal apparatus, which can also be seen visually in the form of a hunchback, for example. However, bone loss also leads to an increased susceptibility to low-energy fractures, which can sometimes go unnoticed for a long time. The breakdown of joint fluid and cartilage mass in the joints often results in pain. This degenerative process of wearing away cartilage mass also gives rise to diseases such as arthrosis, among others, which are widespread in old age.
The health of bones and joints can be maintained and improved through a variety of measures. Existing complaints and clinical pictures can also be significantly improved. The basis for healthy bones and joints is a healthy and balanced diet rich in vitamins, minerals and proteins. Various dietary supplements, such as collagen peptides, can be used to provide additional nourishment for the bones and joints and to build them up or counteract their deterioration. Fitness exercises also help to strengthen the bones and effectively counteract deformation.

Brain & Nerves Health

The brain and the nervous system are the control centres of our body. They are responsible for the control and regulation of our body movements, our senses, our emotions and our thought processes. The nervous system consists of billions of nerve cells that are connected to each other via so-called synapses and transmit signals between the cells. An important function of the nervous system is the transmission of signals through nerve impulses. A disturbance of the signal transmission can negatively influence the brain function and lead to various diseases of the nervous system, such as Alzheimer’s, Parkinson’s or multiple sclerosis.
In order to keep the nervous system healthy, it is important to ensure a balanced diet and supply of high-quality vitamins, minerals, secondary plant substances and, above all, good fats. Since this is very difficult to cover with food, it is advisable to take high-quality supplements in suitable doses. Sufficient relaxation and sleep are also important. Physical activities such as special fitness and relaxation exercises, yoga or meditation can also help to strengthen the brain and nervous system.

Cardiovascular health

The cardiovascular system is of central importance to our body as it ensures that all organs and tissues are supplied with oxygen and nutrients. The heart is the central engine that pumps the blood through the arteries into the body. The arteries, in turn, transport the blood to the various organs and tissues where it delivers oxygen and nutrients before flowing back to the heart through the veins. A disorder of the cardiovascular system can lead to various diseases such as high blood pressure, heart attack, stroke or cardiac arrhythmia.
A balanced diet, regular exercise and avoiding harmful substances are important factors that can strengthen the cardiovascular system. To further promote heart health and improve existing heart problems, one can take various very effective dietary supplements in addition to medication. This is also possible in the form of high-dose cures! Targeted fitness exercises, relaxation techniques such as yoga or meditation can also help to lower blood pressure and strengthen the cardiovascular system.

Stomach & Bowel Health

The stomach is a muscular hollow organ. Its main task is to take in food from the oesophagus, mix it and break it down. It then passes the pre-digested food pulp in small portions to the duodenum. However, the stomach is also responsible for other tasks, such as breaking down proteins or fighting pathogens.
The main task of the intestine is the digestion of food. However, the intestine does much more. It produces various hormones such as serotonin, dopamine and melatonin. It also regulates the body’s water balance. Last but not least, the intestine plays an important role in the defence against pathogens. 70 to 80 percent of our immune cells are located in the intestine. A well-maintained and functioning intestine is therefore a fundamental factor for our health and requires special attention.
In order for the stomach and intestines to function well and remain healthy, one must eat a healthy diet rich in variety and fibre. However, this can vary from person to person, as everyone reacts differently to the macronutrients protein, carbohydrates and fats, and everyone has different tolerances. This needs to be analysed. In addition, various micronutrients in the form of supplements help to sustainably increase the health of the stomach and intestines.

Liver & Gall Health

The liver is the central metabolic organ of the human body and fulfils vital tasks. The liver converts nutrients from food into substances that are useful for the body, stores them and releases them to the cells as needed. In addition, the liver absorbs toxins such as alcohol or drug degradation products, converts them into non-toxic substances or ensures that they can be excreted through the urine.
The liver plays a central role in all metabolic processes. In fat metabolism, the liver cells break down fats and thus generate energy. They also produce about 800 to 1000 ml of bile per day. The bile helps to break down and absorb fats. In carbohydrate metabolism, the liver ensures, among other things, that the sugar level in the blood (blood glucose) remains constant. If the sugar level in the blood rises, for example after a meal, the liver absorbs the sugar via the portal vein and stores it as glycogen. However, the liver not only stores sugar, but also vitamins and minerals and releases them into the blood when needed. The liver also plays an important role in protein metabolism. The liver cells convert amino acids from food in such a way that energy can also be obtained from them.
To keep the liver and gall bladder healthy, the diet should be as low in sugar and fat as possible. Likewise, it is important to avoid toxins such as alcohol, which damage the liver immensely. Even with a healthy diet and lifestyle, however, the liver is under a lot of strain, especially from medication. Toxins that do not leave the liver and gall bladder are stored in the form of gallstones and can lead to problems sooner or later, but always put a strain on the entire organism.

Kidney & Adrenal Health

The kidneys are paired organs belonging to the urinary system. They perform a variety of tasks in the body. The most important function of the kidneys is detoxification. The kidneys ensure the excretion of metabolic waste products and toxins through the urine. They also regulate the water and electrolyte balance. In addition, vital hormones are also produced in the kidneys. Although the kidneys are designed in pairs, it is possible to live with only one kidney without any complaints.
The kidneys are, so to speak, the body’s sewage treatment plants; they produce urine and use it to excrete waste products such as urea, which are produced in the body or ingested through food. The body can also dispose of medicines, drugs or toxins through the urine. In addition to urine production, the kidneys have other important tasks. The kidneys regulate the fluid balance by either retaining water or excreting more with the urine. This also has a direct influence on blood pressure. In addition, certain cells in the kidneys produce the protein renin. It has a hormone-like effect that raises blood pressure.
The kidneys produce other important hormones erythropoietin and calcitriol. Erythropoietin promotes the formation of red blood cells. Calcitriol is the active form of vitamin D and regulates the amount of calcium in the body, among other things. The kidneys also keep the so-called acid-base balance in equilibrium. In other words, they ensure that the blood does not become too acidic or too alkaline. Energy metabolism is also influenced by the kidneys. If there is too little sugar (glucose) in the blood, the kidneys can produce sugar themselves and release it into the blood.
The kidneys and adrenal glands are kept healthy with a diet of lean protein in moderation, whole grains, legumes, fruits and vegetables. Of course, it is also important to find the right amount to drink and to avoid toxins such as alcohol or too much salt. There are also various ways to detoxify the kidneys and remove kidney stones naturally, for example. This keeps the kidneys healthy and efficient in the long run.

Men's health

Libido and erection in men are mainly influenced by hormone levels in the body. Testosterone is the most important male hormone and plays an important role in regulating sex drive and erection. Low testosterone levels can lead to decreased libido and erection problems.
There are many different ways to positively influence testosterone levels at any age and improve the body’s functions. The basis for a good hormone level is a healthy and balanced diet, rich in proteins and healthy fats, a healthy way of dealing with stress and sufficient sleep. Many different supplements can also help to increase hormone levels such as testosterone naturally. These should be taken in sufficient dosage and for a lifetime to have their effect. Special and regular fitness training also leads to a successful boost in hormone production.
In order to keep hormones, such as testosterone in this case, but also other hormones and essential values within the ideal range, a blood test makes sense. Through this, one can determine the exact actual state of many blood values and act accordingly. A holistic approach can have a very positive influence on „men’s health“. Incidentally, hormone replacement therapy also offers an appropriate solution here.

Women's health

Many women have health problems as they age, but also mental problems with the changes in their bodies. This is particularly evident during the menopause when the body begins to produce less of the female sex hormones oestrogen and progesterone. Due to the imbalance in hormone balance and the lack of hormone supply, many women have health problems such as listlessness, fatigue, hot flushes, sweating, sleep disorders or changes in the skin and mucous membranes.
There are many different ways to positively influence oestrogen, progesterone but also other relevant hormones and thus improve the natural functions of the body. The basis for a good hormone level is a healthy and balanced diet, rich in proteins and healthy fats, a healthy approach to stress, exercise and sufficient sleep. Many different supplements can also help to improve hormone levels but also many other relevant blood values in a natural and sustainable way. Regular fitness training, with or without weights, also successfully boosts hormone production and thus improves health.

Health in old age

With increasing age, the risk of various diseases increases. This happens through the natural process of ageing. Hormones gradually degrade and deep inside the body the ageing process affects macromolecules such as enzymes or DNA, affecting the work of cells and organs. The body loses its ability to regenerate and repair itself. The most common diseases in old age include cardiovascular diseases such as high blood pressure, arteriosclerosis and heart attacks. Diabetes is another common disease of old age, caused by a lack of insulin or built-up insulin resistance. Cancer and Alzheimer’s disease are also diseases of old age, often inherited or developed through a genetic disposition.
Of course, it is not possible to completely avoid these and other diseases of old age. However, a number of measures can be taken to maintain health in the best possible way and to successfully slow down the progression of existing age-related diseases and improve symptoms. The basis is a healthy diet rich in vitamins, trace elements, good fats and proteins. Supplements help to absorb these active substances more easily and in appropriately necessary doses. Other special dietary supplements can be used specifically and effectively for certain clinical pictures. Fitness training with weights helps to produce hormones and strengthen cell health.
