What happened at Villa Medica

DIRECT LINE - Boy Abunda - The Philippine Star

A few weeks ago, I brought my beloved Nanay Lesing to Germany for fresh cell therapy at the Villa Medica, one of the leading clinics in the world for holistic medicine. It is one of the only few approved clinics to administer fresh cell therapy and is licensed by the District Administration Office Sudliche Weinstrabe in Germany.

Villa Medica is located at Klosterstrasse 205, D-64780 Edenkoben, a village along the oldest Wine Road in the world called Deutsche Weinstrasse situated between Landau and Neustadt an der Weinstrasse. It is 90 minutes south of Frankfurt am Maim. Built in 1893, Villa Medica is in a serene and natural environment adjacent to the National Park. The clinic offers a relaxing and healthy ambiance to its guests who seek integrated medical treatments like the rejuvenating fresh cell therapy. A 10-minute walk to a lake nearby was one of the most peaceful moments I’ve had in a long, long time.

Villa Medica was established by Dr. Alexander Gali in the ’60s, a student of Dr. Paul Niehans. Later, it was managed by Dr. Burkhard Aschhoff in the ’80s together with over 50 qualified medical staff and health care specialists. Its current medical director is Dr. Geoffrey Huertgen.

Dr. Huertgen (chief of Medicine/Medical Director) and Dr. Andre Morato (physician) are assisted by two medical assistants and a medical technologist. The clinic is open from Mondays to Fridays (8 a.m. to 4 p.m.) and both doctors receive patients for consultation and admittance. But since there are patients coming from abroad, an extension of the working hours is inevitable.

If the patient is a foreigner, he must contact the clinic’s International Guest Relations Office upon his arrival. The staff members are well-informed about the guest long before his arrival in the clinic. We were taken care of by Joey Santos (and his assistant Joanne Pimentel), Villa Medica Philippine representative. Joey is the best thing that ever happened to Villa Medica in the Philippines. He can be contacted at 633-8653.

The major treatments offered by Villa Medica are the fresh cell therapy, joint therapy and skin therapy.

In fresh cell therapy, professionally-harvested fresh organs, glandular and bone marrow cells from specially bred black mountain sheeps are administered to the patients for rejuvenation, longevity of life, disease prevention and life-saving purposes.

In joint therapy, the clinic can treat degenerative and arthritic changes in the different joints of the body including the knee, shoulder, hip, ankle, spinal column and the small joints (fingers and toes) with fresh cells gathered from lamb cartilage.

Skin therapy is a new kind of treatment that gives more elasticity to the skin. Wrinkles of the face, neck and back of the hand can be eliminated through subcutaneous injection of fresh cells taken from the skin of the donor animal.

Other treatments offered at Villa Medica are infusion therapies like Myer’s Cocktail, Chelation Therapy, Vitamin C-Infusion and Infusion (Individual Composition). Other methods of treatment are the Laser Blood Therapy, Oxyvenation, Thymus Therapy and Colon Hydrotherapy.

While staying at the Villa Medica, visitors can also enjoy sightseeing in the cities of Speyer, Heidelberg and Baden Baden. You can go shopping in Mannheim and Frankfurt or have wine-tasting in one of the rustic wine villages around Edenkoben. You can also take a short hike along the marked trails or bike from one vineyard to another.

It is one of the world’s best. We were there and we saw it for ourselves.
