At the Clinic for Integrative Medicine in Bietigheim-Bissingen near Stuttgart and Ludwigsburg, Dr. Kreisel offers multi-day intensive therapies for the treatment of age-related macular degeneration AMD by using Fit-Concept® (Focused integrative therapy concept) developed by him. This method combines different integrative therapeutic approaches in an unique way. Synergistic effects are purposefully generated which have a stabilizing effect on the two forms of macular degeneration and can delay progression. Fit-Concept® has very successfully been used in the Clinic for Integrative Medicine for many years. Other than the treating of macular degeneration AMD, this method is suitable for the treatment of chronic eye diseases such as retinitis centralis serosa or retinitis pigmentosa.
Age-related macular degeneration AMD
Age-related macular degeneration AMD is a progressive eye disease which appears from the age of 50. A distinction is made between a wet and a dry form.
A genetic predisposition, civilization-related metabolic disorders (such as hypertension, arteriosclerosis, diabetes), irradiation with ultraviolet light and oxidative stress (such as environmental toxins, smoking) are considered to be the causes. Only a small size of approx. 1.5 mm of the retina, so-called macula lutea (“yellow macula” – spot of “sharpest vision“) is affected by macular degeneration. Depending on the form of the disease, this spot is affected by an infiltration of decomposition products, so-called druses (dry AMD), deriving from the cell metabolism or swellings of or bleedings into the retina (wet AMD). Consequences are increasing loss of strength of vision accompanied by the perception of distorted lines, increased blinding sensibility, contrast and color disturbances, central visual field loss and total loss of vision.
Fit-Concept® with AMD
Therapy options of conventional medicine for age-related macular degeneration are very limited. From an opthalmologic point of view, only the wet form of macular degeneration allows to positively influence the course by injecting certain medical preparations directly into the eye, apart from an application of large doses of selected micro nutritive substances.
Fit-Concept® (Focused integrative therapy concept) developed by Dr. Kreisel can be used for both forms of the disease and opens up new perspectives for patients affected by this illness. This treatment includes different and well-matched therapeutic methods such as eye acupuncture according to Boel, intravenous, transcutaneous and transscleral laser therapy, magnetic field stimulation and frequency-modulated implant acupuncture® that all have metabolism-enhancing effects. Each treatment is preceded by a detailed and holistic case history forming the basis for the optimum therapeutic concept followed by an intensive treatment for several days. Each patient is provided with an personal and individual concept.
