The immune system is the central pillar of health, the body’s defence system against external and internal disrupting factors (e.g. pathogens, harmful substances, cancer cells). Modern lifestyle factors, environmental factors and genetics amount to the set of causes that lead to immune dysregulation, the underlying cause of many of today’s health conditions: chronic infections, allergies, autoimmune diseases, chronic inflammatory diseases or cancer can all be traced back to an immune imbalance.
This is where micro-immunotherapy comes into play. Also known as low-dose immunotherapy, micro-immunotherapy is a diagnostic and therapeutic approach centred on the assessment and subsequent regulation of the immune system as part of an integrated treatment strategy aimed at training immunity back to its optimal natural function. On the diagnostic level, micro-immunotherapy provides health professionals with various immune monitoring tools to determine the status of the immune system and its responsiveness. Differential blood test, lymphocyte typing (fine-tuned assessment of the cellular immune status), serum protein profile and inflammation profile, serologies as well as HLA-typings allow for precise and comprehensive diagnostics.
Thereupon, drawing from the diagnostic results, a suitable and tailored treatment plan can be elaborated so as to optimise host defence against internal and external disrupting factors and restore balance in the organism. As part of an integrated treatment plan, micro-immunotherapy provides gentle, targeted and sustainable immune regulation. Through a specific composition of low doses of immune messenger substances (mainly cytokines), micro-immunotherapy formulas communicate with the immune system in its own language, without replacing or blocking its functions, to achieve both local and systemic action in a physiological, sequential and coordinated manner. Thereby, the patient’s central pillar of health, immunity, can be steered back to efficiency and proper function.
