Health matters: The digestive system


Since 60 to 70 per cent of our immune system is tied to the digestive system, the reaction of it mainly depends on the performance and the health of the digestive system.

Allergies or intolerances are the new lifestyle diseases. Almost 25 per cent of the population is affected by it and it’s on the rise. Rashes, respiratory diseases or disorders of the gastrointestinal area are just a few examples of annoying symptoms. For classical medicine, allergies often represent a problem. Despite obvious discomfort, the allergy cannot always be proven by conventional methods. Allergies not only occur in genetic predisposition, but are mainly caused by the way we live.

This is where the Modern Mayr Medicine helps. Since 60 to 70 per cent of our immune system is tied to the digestive system, the reaction of it mainly depends on the performance and the health of the digestive system.

Food intolerances are much more often acquired metabolic disorders than congenital allergies. This is where the digestive system plays a decisive role. Its task is, as far as possible, to completely break down the food. This process is impeded by our poor eating habits. Intolerances are almost always associated with an inflammation and therefore, with a higher incidence of histamine. And this substance promotes allergies. Histamine is produced by bacterial conversion, so an overgrowth of the intestine with pathogenic bacteria, intestinal yeast or even parasites promotes intolerances (dysbiosis).

Also, in the food itself, histamine occurs — whenever food is exposed to long bacterial ripening processes. But that is how certain cheeses and red wines receive their culinary speciality. The knowledge of this relationship affects the nutritional guidance and helps in the treatment. But also emotional strain and stress contribute to the development of allergies and intolerances. Stress consumes the same nutrients that are missing from the organism when suffering from allergies. But food intolerances can also, as we know from the example of fructose, even lead to depression symptoms. Very often, depressions turn out to be food intolerances.

Allergies and food intolerances are a domain of the Modern Mayr Medicine. The relief of the digestive system, improvement of the metabolism and supplementation with vital substances provide significant therapeutic results already after a short time. Although the incompatible foods should be avoided for a while, the complaints have largely subsided or are at least tolerable. The quality of life returns. This represents a major challenge to our creative cuisine. However, for us restrictions mean no waiver of enjoyment at all — feast yourself healthy! Step by step, your digestion will recover and your allergic symptoms will sustainably improve. The Modern Mayr Medicine is the correct and comprehensive treatment for a physical and mental rehabilitation for people with allergies.
