Centre for Integrative, Complementary Medicine & TCM (ZIMT)

People affected by acute or chronic illnesses want to understand their illness and actively contribute to managing or curing it. We are at your side to clarify your health issues and ensure that you receive the best possible care. You can rely on our many years of experience.

Support in the decision-making process

People make countless decisions every day, whether on minor or more important matters. Sometimes they are so familiar to us that we hardly realise that we have just made a decision. However, decisions can also be complex for patients, for example:

  • Should I opt for a therapy that comes with possible side effects but offers the chance of a cure? Or would I prefer the uncertainty of the course of the disease if I do without medication?
  • Am I faced with the choice of surgery or do I prefer conservative treatment?
  • Does breast reconstruction make sense for me, and if so, what options are available to me?
  • Do I want to rely on conventional medicine alone or would I like additional support?
  • Are adjustments to my lifestyle possibly necessary, and if so, what options are available to me?
  • Can and should I continue in my job as usual, or should I consider alternative perspectives?

We are here to help.
