Abstract / short description:
The project "KIG BaWü" brings the perspective of Complementary and Integrative Medicine into the development of the "Health Location Baden-Württemberg" and makes exemplary relevant and innovative contributions to health care, research, university teaching as well as education and further education in general. Scientists, doctors, nurses and therapists from various disciplines at university hospitals (Academic Centre for Complementary and Integrative Medicine (AZKIM)) and other hospitals in the federal state of Baden-Württemberg (Competence Network Integrative Medicine (KIM)) are involved. On the basis of new methods and innovative test procedures, concrete research projects, the functional effects and mechanisms of action of herbal active ingredients, food supplements, vegan nutrition, acupuncture and relaxation techniques are investigated. The focus is on the effects on the immune system, tumor cells and stress as well as, in pilot studies, on muscle fascia as a relatively new target structure of complementary procedures.
