The Fundamental Principles of Our Programs

The majority of chronic conditions are the result of the sort of unhealthy lifestyle that is typical in our modern society. The DITG has proven in countless studies that improvements in a patient’s lifestyle have a significant impact on his or her symptoms.

Our telemedical coaching programs empower participants to change their lifestyles themselves; the key is integrating three decisive parameters for success:

  1. Providing information about the illness, because education is vital to long-term improvement.
  2. Motivation to change one’s own behavior and overcome old habits.
  3. Adjusting the therapy and medication with the involvement of the patient’s doctor.
