We offer an extensive IgG food allergy laboratory test. Your blood sample will be analysed by a specialised laboratory which determines the presence of antibodies against a broad variety of foodstuffs.

What is an IgG food allergy?

These type III food allergies often remain undetected because the symptoms may occur only after a few hours or even days after the consumption of a particular food, making them extremely dificult to identify.

If you have a type III allergy, your immune system produces so-called speciic IgG antibodies against food proteins. These antibodies can cause inlammatory processes which can become chronic.  Symptoms are varied. Their appearance is delayed by up to three days after the inappropriate food was eaten.

It’s important to notice that a type III allergy should not be mistaken for a classic food allergy (type I). If you have a type I allergy, your immune system produces so-called IgE antibodies. These antibodies lead to an immediate allergic reaction. The symptoms appear within seconds or minutes. This test does not detect classic food allergies.

The intestine

The immune system of the intestine is the largest in the entire body. Over 80% of the immune defence reactions originate from the intestine. It guarantees an almost invincible barrier for bacteria, viruses and other pathogens and a barrier against other foreign proteins from food. Our body has an extraordinary tolerance to foods, on the condition they are correctly digested and pass the intact intestinal barrier in the intended manner, namely through the intestinal cells.

However, due to medicines, infections, mycosis, stress and environmental poisons the integrity of the intestinal wall can become damaged again and again and food components can slip between the intestinal cells. The immune system may then initiate an immune reaction against these food proteins.

Along with your test results, you will receive your individual nutritional concept. Your test results and your personal nutritional guidelines will help you with an elimination and provocation diet with the aim of reducing inlammatory processes.

 The results are ready in 5 days. Price CHF 990.00

Focal One® is a computer-controlled medical device for the treatment of localised prostate cancer by focused ultrasound (HIFU = High Intensity Focused Ultrasound). The energy is delivered via an endorectal probe. The ultrasound waves travel through the rectal wall and are focused on a part of the prostate. This focusing produces intense heat, resulting in tissue destruction within the target area. The treatment lasts between 30 minutes and 2 hours and can be performed under loco-regional anaesthesia.

Focal One® is a non-invasive treatment option that allows for a precise, local treatment in one session, that can be repeated if necessary, with a short hospital stay and few side effects. In the event of incomplete results, the choice of therapeutic options is wide and includes retreatment with Focal One®.

Focal One® may be indicated as:

  • a first line option for patients with localised cancer, stage T1-T2 (Gleason 6 or 7, PSA less than 15), according to their age and general condition.
  • a salvage therapy option for patients with local recurrence of prostate cancer initially treated by radiotherapy.

HIFU for prostate cancer

HIFU uses a high intensity convergent ultrasound beam generated by piezoelectric transducers. This focusing of ultrasound waves into one point greatly increases the temperature around the focal point, thus resulting in tumour destruction i.e. pathological biological tissue.

The application of HIFU for prostate cancer treatment involves focusing high intensity focused ultrasound to destroy, by heat, prostatic tissue affected by cancer, without damaging surrounding tissue. This technique is non-invasive because it avoids incision, allows loco-regional anaesthesia and limits the characteristic complications of prostate cancer treatment (incontinence or impotence).

Clinical results

In 2013 and 2014, two prospective cohort studies demonstrated the long-term (10 years) results of whole gland HIFU as a first-line option and have validated its effectiveness: according to the cancer risk, the specific survival rate at 10 years is between 92 and 99%; survival rate without metastases at 10 years is between 86% and 100%. These results, which are completely comparable to the best radical surgery results, demonstrate that HIFU is an effective first-line treatment option for localised prostate cancer.

The benefits of our rehabilitation

  • Restoring immunity
  • Heavy metal detoxification
  • Cleaning the body of the effects of chemotherapy
  • Recurrence prevention
  • To improve the patient’s well-being and quality of life
  • No side effects.
  • Course duration 6 days (course can be repeated later)

Surgery. Chemotherapy. Radiation therapy. Heavy and toxic treatment are behind you. And what is ahead? How to rehabilitate after such a blow to the body, and to restore your immune system?

Struggling against cancer is a huge path for a human being. First there is the diagnosis to accept and then quickly comes the concrete fight. It may include surgery, small or big, chemotherapy, radiotherapy, hormonotherapy and new treatments like immunotherapy for certain types of tumour.

Fortunately nowadays, our modern medicine constantly continues to improve to overcome this still mysterious disease.

However, for many persons, this whole treatment process takes months and implicates very tough moments. Indeed, there are several rounds during which the human being will go through painful physical states, depression, doubts, fear, solitude and so on. And in several cases, once the therapy is over, the patient is physically and mentally exhausted. And what then?

During many years that our medical centre has been around people treated for cancer, we were always thinking about what happens next. Yes the patient is in remission, yes the patient finally can finish with his treatment and can rest. But is this enough after all he went through? We had the feeling that once the therapy is over, the doctors are done, and the patient is on his own. Of course he will have to be checked regularly but that’s it.

What about the recovery part? What about all these toxic products (platinum and other heavy metals for example) that went in the body during chemotherapy and that could provoke long terms problems such as neuropathy, hormonal imbalance, heart problems etc.

Thus Incorpore Medical Center decided to build up with its internist specializing in prevention and age management a rehabilitation program for oncology patients.

The programme begins with a comprehensive medical assessment of the patient’s health condition. He is then offered therapy consisting of a one-week course of intravenous perfusions (most likely, the doctor will recommend repeating this programme after six months, and then taking it in a shortened form once/six months).
The composition of the dropps is created individually for each patient, taking into account the results of the tests and are only products of natural origin: antioxidants, anti-glycans, multivitamins, minerals, amino acids, oligo elements and chelating components to cleanse the body from the effects of aggressive chemotherapy on various organs (liver, heart, blood vessels, nervous system, kidneys, etc.)

This therapy, has no side effects, and also leads to the destruction of potential cancer or pre-cancer cells that are resistant to chemotherapy or classical radiation therapy which can potentially be responsible for the recurrence of cancer after several years.

OUR POST-ONCOLOGICAL REHABILITATION INCLUDES

  1. On the first day, a physical examination and an extended biocheck blood and urine test (described below).
  2. Analysis of the intestinal flora of Floriscan to identify harmful eating habits and acid-alkaline imbalance. This analysis can also be used to draw conclusions about invasive changes in the mucous membrane and permeability disorders, e.g. in the context of allergies and chronic inflammatory processes or tumours.
  3. Initial consultation with a physician, comprehensive medical assessment of the patient’s health status.
  4. Nutritional training to improve immunity is an important part of maintaining the quality of life of post cancer patients.
  5. A series of procedures to cleanse the body from the effects of aggressive chemotherapy and radiation therapy on various organs (liver, heart, vessels, nervous system, kidneys, etc.).
    All intravenous dropps are made exclusively of natural products, antioxidants, anti-glycans, multivitamins, minerals, amino acids, oligo elements and chelating agents. No side effects.
  6. Protection against possible cancer recurrence.
    Powerful treatment for the destruction of potential cancer or precancerous cells resistant to chemotherapy or classical radiation therapywhich could potentially be responsible for cancer relapse after several years.
  7. Final consultation, advice on lifestyle, nutrition, supplements, prescription of bio-supplements, pre-biotics and probiotics.
  • Duration of therapy: 6 days
  • Every day the patient receives 2 different intravenous droppers (duration of the procedure is 2-3 hours).
  • The perfusions will remove all the toxic effects of chemotherapy/radiotherapy on the various organs, and will restore energy and well-being. This creates the body’s immunity against any possible recurrence of cancer.

It is strongly recommended to repeat this treatment (in abbreviated form), including blood tests, after 4-6 months.

Cost per 6 days: CHF 13’900.00 including laboratory tests

The treatment is done as an outpatient in our medical center.

Depending on the type of cancer, the patient is recovering from, some physiotherapy sessions with specialist in oncology rehabilitation can be advised.

We also advise to stay in Hotel la Réserve where we can adapt a nutrition and spa program for the patient’s wellbeing.

From today we offer in our center:

  • The flu vaccine: with 4 different strains of virus
  • The pneumoccocal vaccine: that will protect against streptococcus pneumoniae

These vaccines can be done in our center or in your home.

They can be provided together or separatly.

This problem that can affect fertility, concerns between 10 and 15% of women between the ages of 25 and 40. But it remains difficult to diagnose.

Every month, because of hormones, the internal lining of the uterus, the endometrium, is transformed to accommodate an embryo. If there is no pregnancy, the endometrial tissue is eliminated: it is the menstrual bleeding. In endometriosis, this tissue is disseminated outside the uterus. It sets itself on other organs: the peritoneum, the intestine, the bladder, ovaries, between the vagina and the rectum, the lining of the abdomen, certain ligaments or on the lungs. These remaining tissues are subjected to the hormonal cycle, and undergo inflammation and bleeding during menstruation, what causes a pain often misunderstood.

Thus, the various locations of endometriosis causes different symptoms. It also explains why, when they occur during the menstrual cycle, the connection is not made. For example,  when located in the bladder, it can be confused with recurrent cystitis. Especially when antibiotic treatment appears to succeed. But it’s actually the end of the menstruation bleeding that put an end to the pain.

The causes are still not certain

For most women, during menstruation, a little blood containing endometrial cells pass into the abdominal cavity. For some, these cells survive and settle in the peritoneum. But this only explanation is not enough. There must also be a dissemination through the blood and the lymphatic system so that these cells can develop outside of the abdomen. Another hypothesis points to environmental factors. Thus, exposure to dioxins (POPs) seems to favor endometriosis.

It is important that the disease is diagnosed as early as possible. The more advanced is the disease, more the surgical procedures are long and difficult, because the organs are more damaged. The risk of recurrence is also higher. Furthermore, in 30 to 40% of cases of female infertility, endometriosis is discovered. If the disease is discovered too late, the ovary can be destroyed. But the time between the first symptoms and diagnosis is on average of six to seven years, according to a study published in 2013.

How is this possible? The first two or three years of delay in the diagnosis are mainly because of the patient and his family. “One says to the girl that it is normal to have pain during menstruation. The patient herself may be ashamed. If there is pain during sex, for example, often the patient doesn’t dare to talk”, says a specialist. In the following years, it is rather the medical profession that is responsible. This period goes by with consultations without that the diagnosis is made. One must say that thorough examinations, such as CT scan or magnetic resonance imaging, do not allow to detect endometriosis systematically. The definitive diagnosis can only be done during an exploratory laparoscopy, to see what is happening inside the abdominal cavity. Ideally, the treatment is carried out during this procedure.

However, the traditional gynecological examination may also very well reveal endometriosis. If the examination is painful, and it often is, the gynecologist must ask himself the question. Excessive pain (6 on a scale of 10) during menstruation should also be a hint. As well as deep pain during sexual intercourse (7 of 10). Other obvious symptoms: deep rectal pain when the patient has bowel movement and cystitis coming back every month. But there are cases where endometriosis is asymptomatic.

What to do to stop the disease? There are drug treatments: the pill or specific hormones (progestin). But it may be necessary to operate to reduce endometriosis lesions. In these cases, you really have an experienced surgeon.

In severe cases, it is necessary to completely block hormone production, which dries the endometrium and causes menopause. This can be done transiently for women who wish to have a child. They are first operated to remove a maximum of endometriosis lesions. Then, after hormonal stimulation by injection, in vitro fertilization is performed. Studies clearly show that this treatment increases the chances of pregnancy.

Focus on Mediterranean diet

Apart from drastic treatments offered to women, patients are also advised to pay attention to their lifestyle and diet. The Mediterranean diet (rich in fruits, vegetables, cereals and olive oil, low animal proteins) seems to be a good weapon in the fight against endometriosis. The literature shows that saturated fat, for example, favor endometriosis, probably because of their pro-inflammatory effect. Experts also believe that complementary medicine, such as acupuncture or Chinese medicine, can have a beneficial effect.

We are equiped for both covid19 tests:

The PCR test:

  • Nose/throat swab
  • For patients that need to check whether they are currently having the virus and infectious

It’s useful for patients that are traveling or in contact with many other people on regular basis.

The serolgoy test:

  • Blood sample
  • For patients that want to know whether they had the virus and developed antibodies
  • A very sensitive screening test is carried out. Please note that the antibody formation may be delayed (3-6 weeks after infection) or, in mild cases, the detection may even remain negative. Depending on the patient’s medical history and findings, a follow-up in 2-3 weeks is recommended in case of a negative result.
    It is not yet clear whether a positive result will result in permanent immunity.

All results are ready in 24hrs

Inside your body there is an amazing protectio­n mechanism called the immune system. It is designed to defend you against millions of bacteria, microbes, viruses, toxins and parasites that would love to invade your body. The immune system is made up of special cells and chemicals that fight infection. The white blood cells that make up the immune system are made in the bone marrow. These cells move through blood and tissue. Every time a microbe (germ) is overcome, the immune system remembers that microbe. If the body comes in contact with that microbe again, it will be defeated quickly.

The immune system is one of the most remarkable and complex systems within the human body. When you realise that the immune system has the ability to produce a million specific straight-jackets’ (called anti-bodies) within a minute and to recognise and disarm a billion different invaders (called antigens), the strategy of boosting immune power make a lot of sense. The ability to react rapidly to a new invader is the difference between a minor 24 hour cold or stomach bug and a week in bed with flu or food poisoning It may also be the difference between a non-malignant lump and breast cancer, or symptom-free HIV infection and full-blown AlDS.

The main ‘gates’ for the body are the digestive tract, which lets in food, and the lungs, which let in air. Within the digestive tract is the ‘gut-associated immune system’ which is programmed to allow completely digested food particles, such as amino adds, fatty adds and simple sugars, to pass unhindered through the gut wall into the body. Incompletely digested food can result in immune reactions, especially the large food molecule passes into the bloodstream. This is often the basis of a food allergy. The nasal passages help to prevent unwanted agents from entering the lungs. Having healthy and strong ‘inside skin’ in the lungs and digestive tract is the first defence against invaders.

At any time there are a small number of immune cells roaming the body. Many of these cells have a short life. T-cells, for example, live for about four days. When an invader is identified new troops are produced in the bone marrow and thymus, and trained and posted in forts such as lymph nodes, the tonsils, appendix, spleen and Peyer’s patches. Lymphatic vessels drain into these forts bringing in invaders for their destruction. That is why lymph nodes, for example in the neck, arm pits and groin, become inflamed during an infection. This means they’re doing their job. Since the lymphatic system doesn’t have a pump, (lymphatic fluid is moved along by muscle movement), physical exercise is important for lymphatic drainage. Since no nutrients work in isolation it’s good to supplement a good high strength multivitamin and mineral. The combination of nutrients at even modest levels can have a strong effect on boosting immunity.

How do you naturally boost your immune system?

Here are some important points to take into account:

  • Water is the single most important nutrient, helps your cells to properly communicate the healing messages, critical for an effective detox, vital for all your body systems to function correctly to boost immune system, helps maintain healthy energy, dehydration promotes cancer cell growth.
  • Eat food found in nature as close to original form as possible without added toxins (a toxin is anything not currently useable by the cells and includes pesticides), a whole food diet has many known and many ‘hidden’ benefits that will boost immune system, is our natural source for whole food vitamins and minerals.
  • Most invaders produce ‘free radicals’, dangerous oxidising chemicals, to fight off your immune advances. Antioxidant nutrients such as vitamin A, C, E, zinc and selenium disarm free radicals weakening the invader. They also have other immune-boosting functions.
  • Most of the following specifically and powerfully target the immune system for rebuilding your health:
    Probiotics, Glyconutrients, Selenium, Beta glucan, Ellagic Acid, Glutathione, Chlorophyll, Enzymes, B complex, Zinc, Vitamin D3, Magnesium, Coenzyme Q10, Melatonin, Vitamin C, Iodine, Multiple vitamin/mineral/phytonutrient.
  • Exercise increases response time of antibodies, increases body temperature which improves macrophage ‘munching’, stimulates production of beta endorphin that latch onto killer T-cells increasing their ability to destroy invaders by an average of 63%, relieves stress, MOST IMPORTANT – it mobilizes the lymphatic system which collects and removes ‘unwanteds’ from the body (rebounding is excellent for this), top immune booster for oxygenating the body (low oxygen levels breed cancer cells and bacteria), stimulates T lymphocytes.
  • By managing your life and making choices, you can reduce stress as well as relax and recharge. And by doing this, you give your body a powerful reinforcement against one of the biggest threats to your health.
  • Your sleep – the time when the body does the most repairing, the amount of sleep is directly related to the amount of energy we have the next day.
  • Detox – initial and regular internal cleansing is imperative for a strong immune system and will eliminate bacteria, viruses, fungus, bad cells, parasites, heavy metals and other invaders that weaken the immune system, include colon cleaning (important to cleanse first so everything else can exit quickly), liver detox, kidneys, blood, gall bladder, etc., be proactive and careful about what goes into your body so you don’t need to cleanse as often

Our prevention and immunity boost program will ideally help you to adapt your diet, lifestyle to your personnal needs and thus improve and balance your immune system.

They can occur because of many causes.

General health questions such as:

  • Smoking
  • Caffeine
  • Unhealth nutrition
  • Alcohol
  • Heat
  • Social drugs
  • Stress
  • Aging

All these points should be first discussed with our specialist in preventive/holistic medicine

Then there are more specific questions such as:

  • Endometriosis
  • Genital infections
  • Pelvic inflammations
  • Hormonal disbalance
  • Prostatitis
  • Varicocele

That should be discussed with our gynecologist/urologist specializing in fertility questions.

One patient of 52 years was complaining of increasing pain in his left knee. The patient is likes to exercise regularly. During the winter season he’s used to go skiing and this pain was starting to really be a problem for him. He did some radiographies that showed a beginning of arthrosis (stage 1). He went to see his orthopedics specialist that suggested to start with anti-inflammatory creams  and maybe not to put too much stress on the knee.  The patient didn’t want to reduce his sport activities and the cream helped a little at the beginning but then the pain came back being the same and even to worsen. The patient came back to his doctor. He was explained that the problem will get worse and that at one point in a few years he will need to think about a knee prothesis. In the mean time some hyaluronic acid infiltration to lubricate the joint or some cortisone infiltration to relieve the pain was suggested. The patient didn’t want some cortisone and started investigating some other options. He heard about our mesotherapy method and came to see our specialist Dr Jubin for some advice. He decided to try this technique that is painless, non-traumatic and leaves no traces. This was 4 years ago. Right now the patient has almost no pain anymore, the arthrosis didn’t disappear but didn’t increase and he practices sports as he likes it. He comes and does his mesotherapy once or twice a year.

Our mesotherapy uses formulas that have been created specifically for challenging, chronic and pejorative situations over time. We are not only treating pain, even if it is the first request of patients, but initiating a repair process allows a lasting relief that can be counted in months or even years.

There are many toxic metals (including lead, cadmium, arsenic, and mercury) that contribute to multiple health problems and persist almost indefinitely in the environment.

All the toxic metals contribute to a more rapid aging of tissues, and increased risk for heart disease and cancer. A common mechanism for all these toxins is depletion of antioxidant protection as they create free-radical damage. Glutathione, the key cell-membrane antioxidant, as well as other antioxidants (including vitamin E and lipoic acid) are depleted by oxidative stress from toxic metals, leaving cells more vulnerable to membrane damage and chronic disease.

Diseases such as autoimmune conditions, kidney disease, memory defects, muscle weakness, and thyroid disorders all can have a heavy metal trigger. Much of this damage is going unnoticed by most doctors, mainly because the focus of academic medicine has been on toxic effects of acute large exposures to metals (such as industrial accidents) and not on the subtle lifelong accumulation that most people experience.

Recent studies have also shown a significant connection between toxic metals (especially lead and mercury) and Alzheimer’s disease and other forms of dementia. If there is an elevated body burden of these toxins, the brains’ response is to increase amyloid production to reduce the inflammation and damage these metals create – the consequence of more amyloid is dementia. This vicious cycle can be stopped by reducing the body burden through chelation and other means of clearing the toxins.

In addition to these deleterious effects, it is now becoming clear that several of these metals can cause epigenetic alterations. The metals most studied regarding epigenetic effects are arsenic, cadmium, and mercury.
