Over a hundred years ago, the Austrian scientist and physician Dr Franz Xaver Mayr recognised the gut as the ‘root system’ of a human being. The discovery that the causes of civilisation syndromes are found in the gastrointestinal tract resulted in a revolutionary concept, which continues to be proven by current research. The gut supplies the body with nutrients. Nevertheless, the way we deal with this important organ on an everyday basis could often be described as neglectful: we tend to eat too quickly, too much, too often and at the wrong time. This puts pressure on the intestine, liver and all associated organs, resulting in digestive and metabolic disorders, joint and spinal pain, food intolerances, arteriosclerosis, sleep disorders and impaired performance. Since FX Mayr’s day, the method has progressed from being a bread-roll-and-milk diet, and is now known as Modern Mayr Medicine.
FX Mayr’s approach to early diagnosis and cutting-edge conventional medicine play a central role in Modern Mayr. Unique diagnostic modules, medical services and treatments, specialist examinations, health psychology, medical massages, physical therapies and baths, spa body treatments, physiotherapy and detoxifying treatments form the core of Modern Mayr Medicine. These are combined with a personalised nutrition plan based on Modern Mayr cuisine as well as a physical activity programme tailored to individual requirements.
Modern Mayr Medicine is constantly being developed by Mayr physicians, conventional medical doctors, complementary practitioners, psychotherapists, physiotherapists and nutrition specialists in close cooperation with consultants from Innsbruck Medical University.
