Internal medicine at Oberwaid is concerned with the medical sequelae of stress, aftercare of patients recovering from serious illness and surgery, and medical screening and prevention (check-ups).
Internal medicine and psychosomatic medicine
General medical diagnosis and treatment is an essential component of our modern integrative psychosomatic treatment concept. Every treatment is preceded by a medical check-up and screening for reliable diagnosis of physical problems and to identify risk factors.
Chronic stress is a risk factor for
- Cardiovascular diseases such as high blood pressure
- Metabolic disorders such as diabetes
- Immune disorders manifesting in the form of an increased susceptibility for infection and/or exacerbation of allergic or autoimmune responses
- Chronic psychosomatic pain syndromes such as irritable bowel syndrome
Internal medicine and general medical aftercare
Medical support to promote recovery and shorten the hospital stay may be necessary after hospitalisation for the treatment of severe acute or chronic diseases or surgery.
Internal medicine and medical screening
A medical check-up for risk identification and screening purposes can be booked on an outpatient basis or as part of a 4-day Oberwaid Introductory Health Package.
