Dr. Homayun Gharavi, MD PhD PhD

5 x Olympic Physician & Exercise Scientist

Health means function and starts at the smallest unit. This applies to our environment, to any corporate business as well as to our bodies. For us, the smallest unit is the cell. Disfunctional cells always lead to a dysfunction of their organ. Initially, dysfunction remains undetected as long as there is no suffering. As dysfunction progresses, suffering will appear, and we call it disease. Deseases comprise the overall function of the body. Pharma, mostly only targets to ease the suffering, yet not to turn the dysfunction into function.  

We do. 

Injuries follow the same principle. Like a compass, pain is a signal that guides us to the cause of the problem. In most cases, the cause is not at the same site as the symptoms.

We take all the time needed to understand your problem without muting the alarm signals of your organism with medication. We value this as the only chance to re-condition your body’s function. 

Welcome to our Center of Functional Medicine.



Sports medicine

Sports medicine isn’t just reserved for athletes. Our oldest patients are over 80 and benefit from my experience as a team doctor and trainer just as much as the Olympic athletes who have given me this wealth of experience over the past 20 years.

We understand sports medicine as the art of mediating between sport and medicine. Freedom from pain must always be achieved in motion. Here the ‘HOW’ of the movement plays a major role. It represents the key stimulus for an adaptation of our body structures.

Our modern therapy and training concepts, with which my patients experience progressive rehabilitation and reconditioning with us, result from this understanding.

Understanding health - cultivating life

Obesity, hypothyroidism or hyperthyroidism, sleep disorders, type 2 diabetes, allergies & intolerances, rheumatoid arthritis, vitiligo (pigment disorders), alopecia areata, dementia, high blood pressure, hypercholesterolemia, digestive problems, high susceptibility to infections – the list is long and gets longer the more modern it is man lives. Have you ever wondered why these disorders rarely occur in isolation, but often in combination with each other?

We now know that disturbances in the composition of all living beings that colonize our intestines (intestinal microbiome) can lead to these civilization diseases.

We can correct over- and underpopulations of individual intestinal bacterial strains by restoring their habitat with our diet. In most cases, without any medication.

In order to provide you with targeted help, we work together with leading laboratories, which use the latest technology to provide us with detailed analyses. We use the findings from this diagnosis to efficiently control therapy and training.

The Health Week


Just think about whether you too would like to be polished up with us for a whole week (5 days). Our health week, in which we pick you up with your limitations, even if you don’t have any dominant complaints, and treat and move you with two therapy units a day. You will benefit from all of our medical and technical expertise.

At the end of the week, you will perceive your body differently and, above all, gain a new understanding of the simple influence you can have on your well-being – your metabolism, your skin, your weight, your mobility, your fitness – on your health.

We enrich you with simple rules for exercise and nutrition with which you can continue on your newly chosen path at home and look forward to welcoming you – whenever you think it is necessary – at any time for a day or two for a refresher.

Most of our patients travel from further afield so we are experienced and experienced in helping you with airport transfer or accommodation reservations.

You can find out whether the health week is suitable for your goals in a first telephone appointment. Contact us.
