Modern Mayr Medicine at Park Igls is based on the classic Mayr methods developed by Franz Xaver Mayr, but also combines conventional and complementary medicine with cutting-edge diagnostic methods. Here at your Park Igls health retreat in Tyrol, we entrust you to the highly capable hands of excellent, highly experienced doctors and therapists who are specialists in the field of regenerative medicine. The basic structure for long-term energy level improvement is provided by excellent diagnostics together with a tailormade nutrition, exercise and relaxation plan.

The Basic Programme is a fixed component of your stay. Under medical supervision and in combination with healthy eating and exercise, the body is cleansed and its ability to self-heal activated. Based on your specific therapeutic focus, you select one of six treatment modules to form the foundation of your programme.

9 indication groups for a Mayr programme

Gastrointestinal

Gastrointestinal

Sluggish bowels, frequent diarrhoea, bloating, heartburn, ructus, flatulence, gastric and duodenal irritation, general digestive weakness, colonic and rectal inflammation, haemorrhoids, intestinal fungal infection (candida), fructose and lactose intolerances.

The gastrointestinal tract is central to our health and wellbeing. Any disruption of this organ system results in problems in other areas of the body, from bloating and allergies to depression.

Metabolic

Metabolic

Glucose metabolism disorders, elevated uric acid, gout, protein metabolism disorders, elevated blood lipids.

According to the World Health Organisation, around 300 million people around the world are morbidly obese. Obesity is a major risk factor for cardiovascular diseases such as heart attacks and strokes, metabolic disorders such as diabetes, breast cancer, Alzheimer’s and dementia. Obesity also overloads the musculoskeletal system, leading to arthritis.

Cardiovascular

Cardiovascular

Disorders of blood pressure regulation, high blood pressure, orthostatic hypotension (sudden drop in blood pressure and dizziness when standing up), arteriosclerosis risk factors such as elevated cholesterol, haemoconcentration, obesity, lack of exercise etc.

Cardiovascular diseases such as heart attacks and strokes are by far the leading cause of death in developed countries, ahead of cancer, liver and lung disease. Eating the wrong foods and not exercising are major causes.

Musculoskeletal System

Musculoskeletal System

Various ailments of the spine including neck pain, back and lower back pain, Thoracic Outlet Syndrome, sciatica, pseudoradicular syndromes, muscular tension, rheumatic complaints, arthralgia (joint pain), myalgia (muscle pain), etc.

Chronic postural defects can be the body’s attempt to compensate for supply issues in the respiratory or digestive tract. Treating the cause of musculoskeletal system problems often requires stabilisation of the gastrointestinal tract.

Psychovegetative disorders

Psychovegetative disorders

These encompass a variety of functional disorders including migraine, tension headaches, sleep disorders, palpitations, stabbing pains in the chest, psychoperistaltic symptoms in the gastrointestinal tract (stomach cramps), increased perspiration, anxiety, depressive moods, burn-out, etc.

Physical and mental wellbeing always go hand in hand. Depression and other disorders are often masked by physical symptoms such as abdominal pain (irritable bowel syndrome), erratic joint or muscle pain (fibromyalgia) or headaches.

Immune system

Immune system

Chronic infections of the upper and lower respiratory tract including sinusitis, bronchitis, allergic reactions such as hay fever and asthma, frequent infections of the urinary tract (e.g. cystitis), food intolerances and allergies, etc.

Scientists recently discovered that most of our immune system is located in our intestinal mucosa. This explains the extraordinary effects of Mayr intestinal rehabilitation on the immune system.

Dermatology

Dermatology

Skin blemishes, acne, cellulite, skin swellings, lymphatic congestion, eczema, dry or oily skin, etc.

Along with our intestinal and bronchial mucosa, skin is a major interface between us and the environment. Skin disorders are often a cry for help from a body in desperate need of a detox and rest.

Liver, kidney & urinary system

Liver, kidney & urinary system

Impaired liver function with abnormal swelling, fat deposits and elevated liver function readings; sluggish kidney function associated with congestion and a tendency to develop oedemas. The body’s detoxification processes can be impaired by the lungs and skin as well as the gut. This can put pressure on the whole system.

Obesity (the '21st century epidemic')

Obesity (the ‘21st century epidemic’)

Morbid obesity, serious health problems related to maintaining a healthy energy balance, metabolic disorders, diabetes, metabolic syndrome, hypertension, overloading of the musculoskeletal system.

Detoxing: the alternative to prescription drugs

Drugs reduce suffering and save lives. Nevertheless, pain is a signal that tells us something is wrong, so we should avoid taking painkillers without first thinking about the causes. Non-degradable substances from regular use of medication create toxin build-ups that negatively impact the body’s acid-base balance. Many drugs can affect the symbiotic intestinal flora, which is essential for metabolic processes, and thus depress the immune system. Detoxification is therefore of particular value to people who have to take regular medication. The profound effects of Modern Mayr Medicine often result in a reduction, or even cessation, of the need for long-term medication.

Emotional health and psychological wellbeing

Dr Franz Xaver Mayr understood the link between physical and emotional detoxification, and therefore anticipated that his therapeutic approach could also have positive psychological effects. Many of our guests develop a desire to rid themselves of long-standing emotional baggage, and to discover a new sense of direction. This is why we also offer a varied programme of techniques that are effective in re-establishing the mind-body balance. Our psychologists work with you to identify the type of mental training that is best suited to meet your individual needs.

This 'brain detox' helps you learn new, more beneficial behavioural patterns.

  • Autogenic training/body scanning for relaxation and improved concentration
