Open Conference titled:
 „The Integrative Approach in the Prevention and Treatment of Diseases”

The 1st Open Conference „ The integrative approach in the prevention and treatment of diseases” combines the achievements of conventional medicine with commonly accepted alternative therapies.  At the same time, it treats the person as a whole not as a machine that can be repaired like a car. The life of every person is set at three levels: the body, the mind and the spirit, so the diagnosis and treatment should apply to all the levels. Despite huge success in treatment, more and more people suffer from diseases – widely considered to be incurable for example.:cancer, diabetes, autoimmune diseases, allergies, endometriosis,  and many others. The individual, integrative  approach shows, that it is possible to effectively prevent and treat these diseases.

We invite doctors, medical staff, psychologists, osteopaths, physiotherapists and those interested in the following to participate in the conference.
