Our team of physicians, trained to focus on women’s needs
The detection of gender-specific needs and new medical concepts based on these contribute to the preservation or restoration of a woman’s health and better quality of life. In cooperation with the Medical University of Vienna, the latest findings of gender medicine are linked holistically with proven complementary medicine methods. la pura uses this wide range of methods with an exclusive focus on women’s health and preventative care.
Health. Exclusively for women
The la pura concept was substantially developed on the basis of female-specific findings from gender medicine with internationally recognised specialists and is based on the offer of medical diagnostics, consultation and treatment specifically for women. Both University medicine and proven naturopathy methods are used according to individual needs.
The team of physicians is supported by a highly professional and comprehensively trained team of therapists who look after a woman’s well-being.
Since well-being is also closely connected to one’s outward appearance, at la pura we also offer an opportunity to unfold a woman’s individual beauty.
Special types of exercise are especially beneficial for the female body. It is particularly important to find a kind of exercise that is most beneficial to one’s own health and well-being and that is also fun to do.
La pura also places great value on correct and healthy nutrition that is specially adapted to the female organism.
Determining one’s needs for a better quality of life
The determination of gender-specific needs and new medical concepts based on these contribute to the preservation or restoration of a woman’s health and better quality of life. In cooperation with the Medical University of Vienna, the latest findings of gender medicine are linked holistically with proven complementary medicine methods. At la pura, this broad range of methods is implemented with an exclusive focus on women’s health and preventative care.
Individual consultation by our team of physicians
Right at the beginning, one of our physicians will set aside plenty of time for an individual conversation, because every woman is different. The woman’s biography is discussed in detail, risk scores and specific biomarkers are analysed, women-specific “problem values” such as vitamin D and the iron metabolism are determined, and a glucose tolerance test may be carried out, because even if a woman is (pre-)diabetic, her sober sugar values can frequently still indicate normal values. If a woman wants to deal with the stress in her life, an individual stress profile using a heart-rate variability measurement makes a lot of sense.
