Swiss physician Thomas Rau rejects medical status quo
Swiss physician and alternative-medicine guru Thomas Rau isn’t afraid to utter the unspeakable.
“The main message is chronic diseases are curable,” the medical director of the Paracelsus Clinic says on the line from his office just outside of Zurich.
Rau, author of The Swiss Secret to Optimal Health: Dr. Rau’s Diet for Whole Body Healing, maintains that several chronic diseases—including multiple sclerosis, ulcerative colitis, rheumatoid arthritis, and Hashimoto’s disease—can be successfully treated by strengthening intestinal membranes and microorganisms in the gut. He even claims to have had success treating cancer patients in this way.
“We should be proseptic, not antiseptic,” he says.
