About me - English speaking doctor
I practice general medicine as well as psychosomatic medicine (engl. Mind-Body medicine). It’s a holistic approach and focuses on balancing body and mind. I speak fluent English and can guide you around our complex health care system. I opened my practice in 2018 and am happy to serve an international/expat client base. Before I was trained in different hospitals (see "über mich") in Switzerland, where I also grew up. Services are covered by basic health insurance.

What is psychosomatic medicine?
Most chronic conditions are mulitfactorial and have a psychosomatic component (e.g. stress or emotional trauma). Many doctors are still oblivious to this fact. Research in fields such as adverse childhood experiences (ACE), psychoneuroendocrinology and psychotraumatology support this finding. Simply put, the body stores up experience and speaks through symptoms. That's why your past matters.
Typical psychosomatic disorders have no apparent physical abnormality. Examples are fibromyalgia, widespread pain syndromes, irritable bowel, irritable bladder, chronic fatigue, tension headache, grinding teeth etc.
But also other disorders, previously believed to be purely physical in nature, have a psychosomatic component. Examples are hypertension, obesity, migraine, tinnitus, skin disorders, inflammatory gut disorders and many more.
