Paracelsus Clinic The Paracelsus Clinic is the leading center for alternative medicine in Europe. Founded over 50 years ago near St. Gallen, Switzerland, it attracts patients from all over the world, and teaches the methods of its “biological medicine” to physicians everywhere. The Clinic has an international network of affiliated doctors who rely on us for their most difficult cases. The Clinic is named after Paracelsus, the father of alternative medicine, a Swiss doctor and scientist who was a medical revolutionary 500 years ago. Because of the legacy he created, Switzerland is the only country in the world that enshrines access to alternative medicine in its national constitution as a basic human right. Top Researcher Thomas Rau Thomas Rau for the last 25 years, the Clinic offers patients an extraordinary set of resources. The medical staff includes eight doctors, three dentists and over 40 therapists and nurses whose wisdom and experience is unsurpassed. The medical staff’s training is both traditional and alternative, and they work together collegially to ensure personalized patient care. The Clinic’s diagnostic and therapeutic techniques are highly innovative, including many available only at Paracelsus, with cutting-edge technology. The healing experience for patients is comprehensive, including treatment, diet, lifestyle and mind/body medicine. Affiliated Institute Paracelsus Academy Dr. Rau has always made his ideas and methods available to any practitioner who wants to learn biological medicine. He founded the Paracelsus Academy to formalize this training. Today the Academy offers certification in biological medicine through courses and seminars offered at the Clinic, at locations in America and Asia, and on-line. Attendees become part of the international network of practitioners who advocate biological medicine and assist the Clinic’s patients with follow-on care once they return home.
