Through the looking glass….

It was routine for me to start my day at the Klinik before the sun was ready to make an appearance. As the saying goes, “the early bird catches the worm.”

The Schöndorf Current-Therapy feels similar to TENS (Transcutaneous electrical nerve stimulation) apparatuses I have used in the past at physical therapists for sports injuries.

There is the Schöndorf electro-therapy machine, sending small electric currents through me via the pads on my chest and back to stimulate nerves and increase lymph and blood circulation.

The therapist would always welcome me onto the table for Infrared Light Therapy by saying, “follow me to the beach.”

While waiting for my DMPS infusion to drip I did my reading “homework”, prescribed by the man who teaches Bio-Feedback or TANS Therapy. This method of measuring heart rate variability is useful in training yourself to control your Autonomic Nervous System, by balancing the parasympathetic (relaxation) and sympathetic (fight-or-flight) branches.

Here is where they preform the less-than-desirable Colon Hydrotherapy, also known as a “colonic.”

I met with Dr. Rupp daily at this desk, his throne.

On Dr. Rupp’s table I received my two, daily stem-cell injections. He was incredibly adept with the needles, always sparing my backside as much pain as he could.

The Culinarium only serves foods prescribed by Dr. Rau’s healing diet. For that reason, I was able to enjoy nearly everything offered at lunch.

I sat wrapped up everyday for my fifteen minute inhalation therapy session. Thymol oil was used in this case to support my thymus gland, an organ of particular importance to the immune system.

Tiggy, the “Haus therapist” struts around the Klinik as if he owns it. However, he relies on patients and staff to open the automatic doors for him.

The Culinarium is where all the doctors, staff, and patients enjoy delicious and nutritious lunches.

The green cross symbolizes the entrance to the “Paracelsus Klinik Apotheke”. I made many, many visits to the pharmacy during my stay.

There is a beautiful, serene sanctuary for the patients on the third floor of the Klinik. The great, big windows allow for wonderful sunlight to soak you as you rest and enjoy the scenery in the “quiet room”.

My veins were well cared for by all the kind-hearted nurses during my daily infusions and Ozone blood therapy.

It took a few sessions of nose therapy to get accustomed to the sensation of the insertion of homeopathic remedies into my nasal cavity. At first it felt like getting water up your nose while swimming in the pool.
 On the days when I was most restless, lying down for Pulsating Magnetic Field Therapy was a huge annoyance. I would be anxiously counting down the minutes until the machine would signal completion.
