The E.I.S. offers a noninvasive and safe screening method by

Why Natural Medicine?
Natural Medicine takes a different approach from mainstream
medicine. The patient is always treated as an indivisible
Health is determined by the weakest link in a patient's
body. Therefore, only looking at the obvious issue rarely
brings lasting results. Rather than simply trying to control
your body mechanisms, Natural Medicine works on empowering
your body to control itself.
Here are the most obvious differences between Natural
Medicine and conventional, mainstream medicine:
...Patient versus Disease:
Natural medicine looks at any condition within the whole
make-up of the patient; mainstream medicine treats an
isolated disease. This is commonly summarized as: Natural
medicine treats the patient - mainstream medicine treats the
...Cause versus Symptom:
When it comes to treating a condition, natural medicine will
want to find and treat the cause; mainstream medicine mostly
...Support versus Suppression:
Treatment in the case of natural medicine means supporting
your body in its attempt to heal itself - slowly and
systematically. Mainstream medicine suppresses a disease in
order to quickly remove the most obvious symptoms, pain and
...Chronic versus Acute:
Because of its ability to work with your body and bring
about improvements slowly, natural medicine is particularly
suitable for the treatment of chronic, ongoing conditions.
Mainstream medicine is excellent at handling acute
situations and all cases where surgery is required.
...Prevention versus Sick Care:
Preventive care is easy for natural medicine since it
critically looks at early and subtle changes in your systems
and functions. Mainstream medicine relies mostly on blood
and urine tests for diagnosis. These show changes only once
you are seriously ill.
...Lifestyle Change versus Prescription Medication:
Where possible, natural medicine advocates lifestyle changes
that include nutrition and exercise. Mainstream medicine
generally starts with synthetic prescription drugs - some
for life long.
Natural Medicine is a wide and comprehensive field.

Just as you would bring in your car for regular service,
many a health problem may be caught early and remedied
before it becomes a serious issue.
