Micronutrient expert in orthomolecular medicine/therapy

The scientific data in medicine is increasingly leading to the fact that diseases can be prevented and treated with the body's own substances, so-called micronutrients. Many of these micronutrients originate in nature and were discovered in mammalian biology. Here lies the chance to prevent with the appropriate diet and to be able to become orthomolecularly active in case of diseases. In the study of orthomolecular medicine, the definition and rules of orthomolecular medicine should be presented. Coenzymes, vitamins, trace elements their biological significance and levels of action are discussed. Oxidative and nitrosative stress and their biological significance in the development of disease are outlined. Distinguish between deficiency symptoms and toxic effects of micronutrients, should be recognized. Areas of application of omega 3 fatty acids and theory of building an OM recipe will be developed. Competencies and topics highlighted from a wide variety of health perspectives.

A wide variety of tasks, exercises and activities are chosen to create a routine in therapy in the sense of integrative application/medicine. A benefit both for people who are now moving from a vocational apprenticeship towards higher education as part of the Bruges/Copenhagen process, or academics who have been out of university for some time and want to continue their education through an academic continuing education program, thus reacquiring current skills for study.
