New and Undefined Diseases
Ladies and Gentlemen
These days, common diseases present themselves completely different
from what they used to be like in former times – and many other
diseases appear far more frequently than they did 20 to 50 years ago.
For instance, there are viruses found now, which did not exist before –
and they cause new diseases. Bacteria – much feared in earlier days today, appear completely differently, and are frequently significantly
more aggressive, due to the deployment of antibiotics. Ancient diseases
– former scourges of mankind – such as tuberculosis or poliomyelitis
have almost disappeared.
However, the largest increase found these days is with autoimmune
diseases that cause the body to turn against its own organs. Suchlike
diseases are, for instance, polyarthritis, colitis ulcerative, MS, and
probably also prostatitis. Furthermore, this applies to the formerly rare
autoimmune thyroiditis (Hashimoto-thyroiditis), which is currently the
fastest growing disease within the US. Unfortunately, it is frequently
believed that the cause for those diseases is unknown. However, we do
know that all those conditions are based upon various partial causes,
which – in combination – actually release the respective disease.
Usually, those partial causes are not even sought to be identified.
Bacteria, featuring characteristics modified by antibiotic therapies (freed
from cell walls), chronic virus infections, heavy metal contamination,
lacks in trace elements supply, disorders of the intestinal flora, which is
supposed to ensure the immune system’s proper responsiveness...
It could, for instance, be shown that Lyme disease will not enter into
severe stages, unless the respective patient suffers from heavy metal
contaminations. It has also been shown that polyarthritis is virtually
always accompanied by chronic, insidious bacterial infections and once
this has been treated with our haptens and the organism’s de-
acidification, the «undefined» disease’s course improves significantly.
Or did you know that fibromyalgia, which has become such a frequently
occurring, yet in orthodox medicine barely ever treated disease – can
often be attributed to slow-viruses and/or toxic side effects of medication
(mostly of cholesterol lowering remedies)?
Paracelsus Klinik Lustmühle provides facilities to test and examine our
patients for all those partial causes – and thus allows for initiating
targeted and promising treatments.
We are thus best prepared for the treatment of «undefined» and chronic
diseases. Our approach to their determination and treatment is a
different one – it is literally bio-logical.
With kind regards
Yours, Thomas Rau MD

Fatty Acids
Fatty acids are amongst the components of life. Even though they had
not been distinguished at all before the last century’s end, they are vital
and astonishing in their multitude of functions.
While saturated fatty acids support the cell membrane’s stability, the
unsaturated fatty acids’ vibrant energy provides the membranes with
flexibility and power. The ion channels open and close by the force of
vibration, hormones are wrapped up in packages consisting of fatty
acids (actually phospholipids), and the cells deploy their individual cellto-cell hormone system to communicate with transmitters responsible
for temperature, blood pressure, inflammatory and immune responses.
Since they are of such vital importance, it is medically sensible to control
the blood composition with respect to essential fatty acids. This serves
for early identification of malnutrition and allows taking for respective
corrective measures.
And also a flavor may provide valuable information on the question
whether or not specific oils are needed – fish oil does not necessarily
have to taste as train-oiled as expected.
Give it a try!

Dental Hygiene at Paracelsus Klinik
Fundamental for a healthy oral cavity as an entrance to our body, are
healthy teeth in a healthy periodontium (bone and gum). Their afflictions
– mostly caries, gum bleeding, and bone atrophy – cannot be regarded
from an isolated point of view, as they interrelate with the overall
organism. They might be both, cause as well as symptom of systemic
diseases, and thus constitute a health risk.
Apart from factors such as insufficient oral hygiene, the type of present
bacteria and existing dental calculus, or a genetic disposition, people
who suffer from a weak immune system, malnutrition (overacidification), stress, heavy metal contaminations, or who are smokers,
bear a significantly increased risk of experiencing periodontitis and
caries, compared to healthy people.
Our Dental Clinic focuses on providing holistic information, instructions,
and practice in order to maintain the oral cavity’s health in congenial
cooperation with our patients. Being essential, regular dental hygienic
treatments are performed - in accordance with individual requirements –
every 3 to 12 months.
Among others, we additionally offer the following local therapies:
comprehensive mucous check for caries and periodontal
holistic information and therapy planning
individual oral hygiene schedule and respective instructions
(natural products only)
nutritional advice
professional tooth cleaning; removal of all hard and soft dental
plaques and stains
special periodontal diseases treatment and ozone therapy
treatment of sensitive tooth necks
In order to achieve the aspired success of treatment, additional
therapies, also offered within the scope of our complementary (dental)
medicine, will be required. These include:
lesion remediation
heavy metal decontamination and detoxification
intestinal restoration
vital substance therapy

Macula Degeneration
Humans are visual beings «I believe what I see.»; amongst all our
senses, sight is the one of most significance for men.
Approx. 10-20 % of all persons aged above 65 years suffer from Agerelated Macula Degeneration (AMD). The dry AMD, the most frequent
form of this condition’s appearance (apart from the humid one), is
caused by a distorted balance in the metabolic processes of nutrient
provision and discharge of the retinal pigment epithelium’s end
products. The retina’s excessive oxygen consumption makes it
extremely vulnerable. Even under normal conditions, the retina is
permanently at the edge of its capacities, as the number of its blood
vessels is limited.
The result is its high proneness to oxidative stress. That means a
disproportion between radical products and radical defense will evolve.
In its course, the free number of free radicals (from internally: e.g.
oxygen radicals, or from externally: e.g. pollutants, physical or psychic
stress) increases, while the amount of antioxidants (vitamin C, Q10)
The intensity of the retinal pigment epithelium’s cell aging is determined
by the increased formation of non-decomposable lipofuscin.
A holistic therapy should urgently apply highly effective antioxidants
(e.g. vitamin C, vitamin E, beta-carotene, and Q10) and trace elements
(including zinc and copper). Q10 serves to stabilize the cell’s energy
supply. Zinc has antioxidant properties, and is contained in 200
essential enzymes. Selenium serves as protection from oxygen radicals.
Both the Paracelsus Klinik and the Clinica al Ronc have also had
positive experiences in the treatment of macula degeneration by
deploying intravenous ozone therapies. Clinica al Ronc additionally
offers UVB (ultraviolet blood irradiation) as treatment of this syndrome.

The Nature of Fats = Lipids
Male bodies consist of approx. 15 % fat; with women, the respective
value amounts to approx. 20 %.
Like proteins and carbohydrates, fats are components, which are vital
for our organism - we can’t live without them. Therefore, we must
consume fat!
Fats are water-insoluble. This is, for instance, the reason why we find
globules of grease floating on the soup. To remove grease spots, soap
or alcohol is required.
The solubility of fats is also crucial for our organism. The respective
property strongly depends on the fat’s chemical compound.
We must therefore differentiate between fats and fatty acids. The term
“fat“” usually describes triglycerides or cholesterol. However, either of
them is usually not only found in our foods, but also within our bodies.
The simple triglyceride structure consists of one glycerol molecule,
which three fatty acids adhere to.
Simply imagine the structural formula of triglyceride as a capitalized
letter E. Glycerol forms its vertical spine, while the horizontal lines
symbolize the fatty acids. This structure applies to both, animal as well
as vegetable fats.
It is also possible that, instead of three fatty acids, there are only two
fatty acids and one phosphor group adhering to the glycerol. This
variant is known as phospholipids. Phospholipids serve to fulfill specific
functions in our cell membranes and brains.
Initially in the event of fat digestion, which mainly takes place in our
small intestines, fatty acids and glycerol are separated from each other.
Every once in a while, one or two fatty acids may remain adherent to the
In such cases, we speak of mono- or diglycerides. Fatty acids are burnt,
deployed for special functions, or stored.
Except for two essential fatty acids, our body is capable of producing all
of them. The two fatty acids our bodies cannot produce are called
linoleic acid and linolenic acid. These polyunsaturated fats must be
consumed with our food and are therefore essential.
Fats that our bodies are capable of producing are considered nonessential fatty acids.
