New chances through traditional knowledge
As a specialist for the non-clinical therapy for patients with traumatic brain injuries (TBI), Naturheilzentrum Bottrop relies on a targeted stimulation therapy. Experience, sensibly attuned specialist areas of naturopathy and an unbiased approach: this is the foundation of Nabomed®.
The Nabomed® concept includes a special kind of stimulation therapy, based on a specific acupuncture technique. This special kind of acupuncture can often be used effectively and in a targeted manner for treating traumatic brain injuries and strokes.
The two founders of Naturheilzentrum Bottrop redefine goals and have pursued new ways within the therapy for TBI patients since the beginning of the 1990s. Ever since, they have pushed the limits of what’s possible.
Their motivation: reaching the maximum. Many TBI patients go through an odyssey before being diagnosed as “incurable”. But what looks like an end often is just the starting point for the two founders and their team. After many previous efforts and doubts, those affected ideally receive alternatives and approaches towards a solution that offers perspectives. A new beginning of a full scale.
Small needles with a large effect: a targeted stimulation therapy can be the key to a natural healing process. Regeneration through stimulation – that is the idea. The nabo crew pools the results from diagnostics and causal studies perfectly. The Nabomed® concept is a healing method which was specially developed at nabo. It does not only involve the patients, but also their families and the caregivers in their environment, i.e. Doctors, therapists and nursing Personnel. This individual concept is custom-made for every patient.
The Nabomed® concept is a stimulation therapy that employs a special kind of acupuncture. The two Bottrop-based natural healing professionals, Farid Zitoun and Christian Rüger, make use of a rare micro-stitch technique, which is aimed at transforming external stimuli into regeneration impulses in the Human body.
To make this happen, the two founders of nabo prick the skin with fine needles in precisely defined places. These places are also known as centers. According to Asian medicine, this is where many substances flow, which is why they are of particular importance for the regeneration of cells and tissue. These pathways or supply streams are also known from conventional medicine. The goal: loosening blockages, stimulating nerve fibers and vascular dilation and thus, to improve the blood and oxygen supply for the tissue and also the removal of residues.
Profound knowledge, own studies and integrated thinking. All that can open up new chances and increase the quality of life for patients and their families at Naturheilzentrum Bottrop. The nabo employees use their extensive competence to loosen blockages, improve the supply for bodily structures, in order to convert former stagnation into regeneration. Activating the self-healing powers of the body and successfully finding the step into life – that also is a strategy of the Nabomed® concept. Innovative therapy concepts form the basis for the return of vitality for patients and their families.
A traumatic brain injury is an injury of the skull where the brain also gets hurt. The risk of cerebral bleeding or other complications is particularly high. Traumatic brain injuries are divided into “mild”, “moderate” and “severe” traumatic brain injury. They can be categorized by taking into account the duration of unconsciousness, the regression of the symptoms as well as the long-term effects.
First degree TBI (cerebral concussion): a slight injury of the brain resulting in an acute, temporary malfunction of the brain. This can result in a short disturbance of consciousness lasting between a few seconds and several minutes. Also, retrograde amnesia (loss of memory concerning the period before the accident as well as the accident itself), nausea or vomitting can occur. An anterograde amnesia, which results in memory loss after the accident, occurs less frequently and usually represents a more severe damage to the brain. Usually, no neurologic malfunction occurs after regaining consciousness. Other effects, such as apathy, decreased performance, headache, dizziness and nausea may persist for several weeks as post-concussional syndrome.
Second degree TBI (cerebral contusion): unconsciousness lasts longer than ten minutes. Depending on where the brain was damaged, severe long-term effects can occur.
Third degree TBI (cerebral compression): compression of the brain caused by bleedings, edemas or other processes results in unconsciousness for more than 60 minutes. Due to the fact that the brain is the only part of the body which is almost entirely surrounded by bone, it can suffer particularly from such increased pressure and the resulting compression. Possible consequences often are long-lasting coma – which is often prolonged artificially –, a comatose condition, or even death. In order to relieve the pressure a little bit, the skull cap can be partially removed for several months. Permanent damages however, are likely, however not bound to occur at this level of traumatic brain injury.
