M.D. Reimar Banis touts energy medicine
When someone experiencing extreme stress develops an ulcer or someone who’s anxious has heart palpitations, it’s hard to refute the body-mind connection. According to practitioners of Rubimed therapy, sometimes physical symptoms stem from past emotional experiences that were too traumatic to fully process at the time.
Rubimed, a European approach that uses homeopathic remedies to resolve emotional conflicts and thereby improve physical health, got its start in Germany about 20 years ago. A naturopath and conventionally trained medical doctor named Reimar Banis noticed that some of his patients just weren’t making progress despite being treated for chronic disease.
Swiss physician Thomas Rau rejects medical status quo
Swiss physician and alternative-medicine guru Thomas Rau isn’t afraid to utter the unspeakable.
“The main message is chronic diseases are curable,” the medical director of the Paracelsus Clinic says on the line from his office just outside of Zurich.
Rau, author of The Swiss Secret to Optimal Health: Dr. Rau’s Diet for Whole Body Healing, maintains that several chronic diseases—including multiple sclerosis, ulcerative colitis, rheumatoid arthritis, and Hashimoto’s disease—can be successfully treated by strengthening intestinal membranes and microorganisms in the gut. He even claims to have had success treating cancer patients in this way.
“We should be proseptic, not antiseptic,” he says.
