Medical history, physical examination and diagnostic assessment

In order to get a comprehensive understanding of a person’s health, I not only ask them for detailed information about their medical history, but also perform a thorough physical examination.

This examination may involve a number of different tests depending on their current health issues.

  • Visual examinations, i.e. inspections and observations, for example for skin conditions.
  • Palpation, i.e. checking the body with my hands, for example for issues concerning internal organs.
  • Percussion, i.e. tapping the body with my fingers.
  • Listening with a stethoscope, for example to the lungs.
  • Functional tests, for example testing individual joints or measuring blood pressure.

In addition to these general examination techniques,iridology/eye examination, tongue and ear reflex zone examinations have also proven highly effective in natural medicine.
