A multifunctional longevity concept in cardiovascular health

The Lanserhof concept in longevity, preventive and regenerative medicine is well developed and experienced in more then 30 years. The main focus always was gut health, which more and more shows scientific evidence to be most important in general health and longevity. Our latest attention is the connection of gut health and cardiovascular disease. Cardiovascular diseases, such as heart attack and stroke, are the undisputed leading cause of premature death worldwide. They also significantly reduce healthy lifespan. After an event, the quality of life is often permanently reduced. In this context, it is clear that there can be no longevity program without cardiology expertise. Approximately 80% of all cardiovascular diseases are theoretically preventable. The goal of preventive cardiology is therefore the early detection of cardiovascular risks through specialized, comprehensive diagnostics when they are still subclinical. In addition to drug therapy for hypertension and hypercholesterolemia, consistent lifestyle intervention is a priority. Exercise and fasting therapies are particularly effective in the treatment of chronic diseases such as type 2 diabetes and fatty liver disease. In recent years, chronic low-level (silent) inflammation has emerged as another risk factor. Silent inflammation is just as dangerous as hypercholesterolemia. A common site of origin is the gut. With its focus on intestinal health, the Lanserhof Cure is particularly well suited for healing here.
