Contact und COMMunication


Contact und Communication

My dear patients,

Contact and communication – are two things, right ? And how does it work on I.M. INFORMATION MATTERS ?

You can contact me via this homepage, the blog or follow me on Instagram. You just read the articles, once a week a new article on different aspects and issues around inflammatory bowel disease, IBD will be published.

But I do know : quite  a few people like to communicate on behalf of their special situation and experience and not with short comments and likes on social media. That`s what the members area and the online consultation are for.

Both parts are yet in progress or “under construction” as it says on the homepage. It always takes time to find good, secure and sustainable solutions.

In the memebers area I will provide valuable and relevant information on the special question you have in your very special situation. It is about answering your questions on your inflammatory bowel disease in a comprehensive way and understandable way.

Those of you who know me also know that I am convinced, that the way doctors and patients communicate and interact will change. Online consultation is not the answer to every question of course, but yet it is an opportunity to make things easier and I think in 5-10 years it will be as common as online shopping and not going to a store.

In case you are not doing well at all and are seriously ill (high fever, lots of blood in the stool, lots of abdominal pain) a doctor needs to see you. And touch you and make examinations for which you need to be present personally. That is just not possible in an online consultation, we should handle these situations “offline”.

But: to discuss your questions properly with enough time and in case you wish to have a consultation that lasts longer than the 5 -10 minutes at a doctors office, an online consultation is a good possibility. Probably at 7:00 p.m.  if that fits in your schedule better than 1: 30 p.m.. You will not have to wait in a crowded waiting space for 45 minutes after the appointment with 10 other patients. You will not be called into the doctors office 45 minutes after the set appointment and find yourself again at the reception 7 minutes later.

Of course an online appointment is a medical performance and cannot be free of charge.

For offering the online consultatin I do have to prepare a little more. I would love to start right away, but one step after another. It will take some time to offer you a good, secure and technical reliable solution, but I will let you know as soon as things are set up.  In the meantime keep checking in on the blog !

EIM of the skin

It took me forever to write this article. The issue is not very common, yet it is not rare enough, to ignore it. Extraintestinal manifestation of the skin. I know some patients who are affected and the thing is, to ensure proper treatment right from the beginning instead of first ignoring the whole thing and then try something that heled y friend, when he or she had a bad wound …. . For that we need the dermatologists very often. How to recognize EIM of the skin and what is the right thing to do …


Watch your eyes…EIM of the eyes in IBD

The eyes … no matter how you look at it, it is hard to imagine that they could have anything to do with the intestine. Yet they can be involved in case of IBD, inflammatory bowel disease, Crohn`s disease and ulcerative colitis as extraintestinal manifestation (EIM) of scleritis, episcleritis and uveitis can ocur. Those are rare but important. manifestations of IBD – we all should have them in mind since it regards your eye sight….



Relax ! I hand this to you not as a phrase but rather as a … recommendation !
Because there are possibilities to actively relax. And since everybody knows, how stress does affect you – it is reasonable to actively relax. And it is so simple that it is almost ridiculous (… and I personally wonder why this is not taught and practiced in schools and preschools already). The way – or let me say: one way – because as always there are different ways of doing it – a really simple, appropriate and goal-orientated way to relaxation is the one that leads over – your breath. Simple as that.
