Welcome to Villa mediGrün. We combine modern science and the knowledge of ancient healing in therapy concepts to treat chronic diseases.
Our main focus in most therapies: To restore your immune system to working order. If for any reason you need to boost your immune system, Villa mediGrün has a lot to offer.
A treatment plan just for you
After studying your patient history, as well as all information you can provide, we tailor an individual treatment program lasting from three to five weeks. A very important piece of your treatment is the application of stem cells that we provide together with one of our partner labs. We can choose from bone marrow derived stem cells (BMC), MSC (mesenchymal stem cells) from fat tissue and secretome/exosome from MSC. All offered therapies are chosen based on your lab results, health history and plausibility. All stem cell treatments are autologous (from your own body). This minimizes the risk of new infections and delivers live cells that work in the body for a long time.
A comprehensive and monitored long-term approach has the most success with chronic disease: We are there for you before and after your stay at Villa mediGrün. We offer support in preparation for your time in Germany, and support you for one full year post treatment. We use the short-term anti-inflammatory effects and the long-term immune modulating effects of autologous stem cell therapy, with the goal to repair damaged structures in the body and to modulate the immune system in a way that can control infections and manage them in the future.
Meet the team
Michael Wittstadt – Naturopath
The founder of Villa mediGrün is among the pioneers who made use of stem cells in the treatment of Lyme disease. He is partly responsible for the positive outcomes and favourable reputation that stem cells have gained in the Lyme community. Many have followed since then, but we are the original!
He received his education as Naturopath from the Erich-Ausmeier-School for Natural Medicine (Hochheim, Germany) and has worked in the Natural Medicine field for over 10 years. He has two daughters and is married to our yoga teacher Hanna.
Brigitte Voigt - Naturopath
Brigitte and Michael got to know each other at Erich-Ausmeier-School for Natural Medicine (Hochheim, Germany) and have stayed in close contact ever since. In addition to her education as Naturopath, Brigitte has a nursing background. In 2018, Brigitte decided to contribute her vast experience in Natural Medicine to the Villa mediGrün Team.
She is married and has a daughter and a son.
Sabine – Back office
Sabine is our back-office angel. She will take care of your booking questions, will organize your pick up at the airport, handle the billings and answer any questions you have about payment, ordering supplements and booking time with the team after your stay. She will pick you up in the mornings, prepare your lunch at noon, help you with grocery shopping when needed and drive you home after your treatment is finished. In addition, you can bring your laundry in the morning to be done while you are having treatment.
Sabine is married and has two adult daughters and one adult son.
Manual Therapy and Yoga
Our co-workers for manual therapy and yoga are Manuela, Andrea, Liane and Hanna. Part of your program will include restorative Yoga and Meditation, Cranio-Sacral Osteopathy, Swedish massages and Foot Reflexology. These therapists are among the top in their fields and are a big part of the Villa mediGrün experience.
We Are Here For You
We offer time, compassion and the promise to take you and your illness seriously. This is especially important when you are living with a chronic illness, as many patients very often feel ignored by their medical system and unsupported by their communities. Not here.
When you arrive, we have a plan for your treatment that is based on all the information you provide upfront. This is collected by email and through the many conversations we have prior to booking your time with us. We start with initial blood, urine, and stool tests on Day 1. As results from these tests arrive, they will have an impact on your therapy plan. With the collected information about your mitochondrial health, bacterial and viral load, histamine levels, neurotransmitters, hormones, gut bacteria, inflammation markers and toxin load, we adjust your treatment daily without losing sight of the main focus: To restore your immune system to working order.
We will treat your immune system by relieving some of the things that are preventing it from doing its job, such as your bacterial and viral load, gut issues, heavy metal toxicity, glyphosate toxicity, nutritional deficits, genetic issues and organ damage. All of these things are to prepare you for the stem cells that will be applied in one of our partner laboratories. Our goal is to have the best possible preparation time before the stem cell application, so that the outcome is better health and a competent immune system.
Exemplary therapies we use
We believe in Orthomolecular Medicine, but also use Homeopathy, and Herbal remedies.
These, combined with the manual therapies, restorative yoga and meditation have a significant and long-lasting impact on your health.
This plays a key role in successful therapy for two reasons:
The body is often overwhelmed with substances that are a big challenge for detox mechanisms not made for the 21st century. In addition, everyone has his or her individual difficulties on the genetic side, so that getting rid of harmful substances is often a big problem.
We use several approaches to help the body detoxify.
Herbal remedies that support liver, kidney and gut function are given. IV therapies such as Ornithine to detoxify ammonia, Green Tea to detoxify the nervous system and an IV chelation protocol known for being less taxing on the body than what many patients are used to are all possibilities.
Homeopathy, colon hydrotherapy, ozone and oxygen therapies as well as laser IV are all part of our detoxification plan.
We support your glutathione, SOD and Catalase with either glutathione infusions or by giving the body substances it needs to produce them itself.
To cleanse the body as soon as possible from all the toxic substances that are released during the anti-microbial therapies is one of the most important things to do while you are here.
For some patients who require more detoxification support, we can offer plasmapheresis through one of our partners clinics. Once your history has been assessed by our team, this may be something that is suggested or requested as part of your treatment plan.
The gut very often is the place where everything began or where it ends. We see that in many patients with a history of antibiotic use.
Colon-hydrotherapy uses warm water to “clean” your large intestines. Compared to an enema, colon-hydrotherapy can cover more of the large intestines, not only the last 50cm. By restoring a healthy gut, we help to sustain your therapy success and hopefully initiate new progress on your route back to health.
In addition to the colon-hydrotherapy, we will use pre- and probiotics, herbal remedies and substances that bind toxins.
Our WEBER laser system can be used in the connective tissue and as an IV treatment. Different laser diodes emit different colours of light. A red laser at 635nm for example.
With laser therapy, we can address pain and mitochondria problems. Lasers are used to increase the production of hormones, increase mitochondria metabolism and they can increase the number of immune cells.
We use them most of the time for reactivation and rebuilding of mitochondria after years of antibiotics and other mitochondria reducing substances, that help against bacteria and viruses.
High Tone Therapy®
Our sophisticated TENS treatment is used to reactivate and rebuild mitochondria and to promote cell repair in the body.
There are clinical studies already about its use against polyneuropathic pain from chemotherapy and diabetes. We also use it against small fiber neuropathy and other causes of pain and mitochondria issues.
PEMF or BEMER therapy
A pulsing electromagnetic field opens the capillars in the body and helps to distribute all the substances we use to all parts of the body. We use the BEMER also for pain treatment and to calm down the nervous system.
IV therapies are the heart of our program.
By avoiding the digestive system, we make sure that your body gets all it needs to make an impact and that nothing is stuck in the gut. Most of our patients have a compromised gut; therefore, IV treatments are key to our success.
We use a wide variety of substances in iv. treatments: EGCG, high dose vitamin C, Artemisinin, the PK protocol, Myers cocktail, NADH and NAD+, MitoEnergy and HPU/KPU-mixes, Licorice, propolis and honey, Germanium, S-acetyl-glutathione, high dose Lysin, Alpha-lipoic acid, Bicarbonate, Hepamerz/L-ornithine, Thymosin Alpha/Beta and thymus gland extracts, etc.
We also utilize ozone therapy and intravenous oxygene therapy.
Yoga and Meditation
The practice of yoga and meditation helps support regulation and resilience in the mind-body system. There are many studies that show how it can:
improve conditions of chronic pain, depression and trauma,
boost your immune system,
help with anxiety, insomnia and chronic fatigue syndrome,
provide support for illnesses such as cancer and heart disease.
At Villa mediGrün we will develop individually tailored restorative sequences to help you improve your long-term health.
Cranial Sacral therapy
Cranial Sacral Osteopathy is a gentle, non-invasive, hands-on technique based on understanding the continuous subtle rhythms of the cranial bones. This rhythm is understood as a response to cerebrospinal fluid (CSF) fluctuations within the spinal cord and brain environment. This movement extends outward to the entire body, in response to the fluid pressure changes around the Central Nervous System.
Our therapist gently works with the whole body including the spine and the skull. By using the hands as fine discriminating tools, Craniosacral therapists are able to detect disturbances in the cranial sacral rhythm to help them identify areas of dysfunction.
This all works to release restriction on nerves, relieve tension in the head and body, optimize cerebrospinal fluid movement through the nervous system and realign bones to the proper position.
