Why effective health prevention is so important
We all want to stay fit and, above all, healthy into old age. After all, health is far more than the mere absence of illness. Rather, it is a state of comprehensive physical, mental and social well-being. That is why health should be understood holistically. Preventive health care is therefore more important than ever in our time.
What does preventive health care mean?
The WHO defines health promotion and prevention as two complementary measures designed to consolidate health and reduce any risks of disease. According to the organization, health promotion is a process that enables people to have a greater degree of self-determination over their health. In this way, they are empowered to strengthen their health.
A sustainable health concept thus depends on many factors. Environmental factors, performance pressure, psychosocial and even political aspects can have an impact on our health. Nevertheless, we ourselves can contribute a great deal to our own health protection.
Because most diseases are not congenital but occur in the course of life, it is possible to influence one's own health. Targeted preventive health care is important at every age, so that children can grow up healthy and people can grow older in the best possible conditions.
How can we influence our health?
Our health is to a large extent related to our lifestyle. Whether we get plenty of regular exercise and play sports, don't smoke and consume alcohol in moderation, or eat a healthy diet forms an essential basis for supporting our health and preventing disease.
Every individual can do something for his or her own health through preventive measures. They can also improve the health-related living conditions in a society. Preventive measures can, for example, prevent chronic, non-communicable diseases from occurring in the first place or reduce their progression. These include diseases that are attributed to the typical affluent society. Especially the most common diseases of civilization, such as cardiovascular problems, diabetes mellitus, high blood pressure, obesity and allergies. Even undesired cell growth can be prevented by means of pronounced preventive measures.
What are the causes of common diseases?
Some diseases can have genetic causes. However, many of them are preventable, at least in theory. The diseases of civilization, such as cardiovascular disease, diabetes mellitus, and, according to experts, even cancer, are often due to our fast-paced times and the problems associated with them.
Thus, psychological stress is often one of the most common causes of such diseases. This often results in behaviors such as poor diet, lack of exercise, smoking or alcohol consumption. This fuels the risks for such diseases even more. In addition, there are factors that each individual can only influence to a very limited extent or not at all.
Psychosocial factors such as loneliness or pressure to perform, exaggerated ideals or false role models in social networks or media overstimulation are among the stress accelerators of today. Environmental toxins such as fine dust or pesticides, constant noise and too much hygiene can also have a negative impact on health.
How to prevent diseases?In the 1980s, the WHO adopted the Ottawa Charter. This calls for programs and prevention projects to promote health. Preventive strategies for health promotion are at the center of municipal health policy.
With an improvement of environmental conditions and quality of life, health - mainly in cities - is to be promoted at the same time. Based on this charter, health promotion networks and thus preventive projects are also being promoted in the Federal Republic and in Austria.
But each individual can also do a great deal to prevent disease and support their health. A healthy lifestyle is crucial for reducing the risk of dreaded diseases. The right diet with appropriate vitamins, minerals, trace elements and secondary plant substances plays an essential role. The medpro team of experts also considers the 4-pillar system essential.
The four pillars are:
- Use of anti-inflammatory agents
- Use of the effect of antioxidants
- Restoration and maintenance of the immune system
- Inhibition of unwanted cell growth
What role does nutrition play in disease and cancer prevention?
Numerous studies in recent years show that the right diet is highly relevant, especially in the prevention of cancer and the so-called diseases of civilization. In this context, the nutritional balance, i.e. the amount of food consumed, is also essential.
Obesity and lack of exercise are a major factor in the development of diseases. The WHO even attributes around 30 percent of all cancer cases in Western countries to an unfavorable diet. A varied diet with plenty of vegetables, fruit and legumes is the best way to reduce the risk. In this way, we take in enough vital substances such as vitamins, minerals and secondary plant compounds. They are involved in all important functions in the human body and thus help us to stay healthy.
More and more scientists are of the opinion that our food contains less and less of these so healthy vital substances. Long transport routes, monocultures and the resulting unhealthy soils, pesticides, but also processing methods are to blame. In addition, there are always new nutritional trends and habits. They often do not guarantee a sufficient supply of vital substances. Moreover, as the years go by, our need for measures to maintain our health increases. Here it can be very useful to supplement the diet with special dietary supplements to support.
How can medpro help to actively protect your health?Phytopreparations contain extracts that are considered active ingredients under the German Medicines Act. They are part of medical therapies and are considered an alternative or supplement to synthetically produced drugs. In addition, the efficacy and quality of such phytopreparations must be proven by clinical studies.Many doctors and therapists have already recognized the great potential of phytopreparations for preventive health care, but also for the assisting treatment of diseases for their patients. Even in extended cell therapy, certain phytopreparations are increasingly used as support due to their good tolerability.A treatment with Phytopreparations from medpro for preventive health care and thus for maintaining one's own quality of life makes sense. This is because it enables targeted countermeasures to be taken against weak points or deficiencies. This is also reflected in the proven 4-pillar model of health maintenance.

People who trust in medpro
In my naturopathic practice I attach great importance to the natural healing of the body. That is why the healing power of plants is an indispensable component for me in the accompaniment of my patients with various pathologies. In particular, I have been very convinced by the proven and holistic treatment concept of Prof. Pfeifer and the products of medpro with their excellent composition and effect. I like to use them not only for prophylaxis, but also for treatment of various diseases, especially with oncological background. Many of my patients are amazed that they do not feel any side effects and start to trust in their natural, inner healing power. I would not like to do without the support of my therapies by the medpro products anymore and I am grateful that medpro exists!"

,,Since the meeting with Prof. Ben Pfeifer in 2013 and the resulting recommendation to start with medpro and Aeskulap brand products, my hopeless situation due to metastatic prostate cancer is stable. Thanks to the immune-boosting products, I feel like a healthy man again. medpro also makes you feel very well taken care of as a valued customer."
Mart van Buuren
"I have been a prostate cancer patient of Prof. Ben Pfeifer for almost 12 years. Part of the therapy is a nutritional protocol and two special supplements (Prostasol & Indol-3-Carbinol) from medpro that have kept me healthy and alive until today.
ProstaSol & Indole-3-Carbinol are not the only supplements I take in the protocol I follow, but they are definitely important components of the comprehensive integrative treatment I receive. I am very grateful for the availability of these natural products because they work reliably without my having to tolerate the side effects associated with synthesized drugs that most prostate cancer patients have to take!"
For many years I have been using the therapy protocol of Prof. Ben Pfeifer for patients with prostate cancer and for patients with breast cancer. About ten years ago, when I had the patient's tumor marker checked in the blood for the first time after a month of therapy with the medpro drugs, I was really amazed at how quickly the high-dose phytotherapy protocol worked. It's just a shame that health insurers usually don't reimburse, even though you can show the good progressions crystal clear."
Saskia von Sanden, MD
I've been living with cancer for thirteen years now. Sure, it goes up and down from time to time, but on the whole, to be honest, it has not been the worst time of my life. Fortunately, I got to know Prof. Ben Pfeifer and some of medpro's preparations very early in my illness, which I still integrate into my daily routine. The combination of different conventional medical therapies in combination with special phytopreparations show success until today. Currently I am in a PSMA therapy, which, with the support of a herbal treatment protocol, is starting to work again and has brought a significant reduction in PSA levels."
