There is a breath of fresh air, which somehow wants to take each of us with it and give life a new direction after the long months of privation, thus filling it with strength once again. Once things begin to get moving again we will be able to turn our attention to exciting encounters that make life so worth living.
The appreciation of health and a raised awareness of sustainability for a better future is perhaps one positive aspect we can all draw from the crisis. At NABO, we are looking forward to being there for you with proximity, empathy and unconditional devotion, especially now.
You can be sure of our help and practical support. Both inside as well as outside the practice. We are firmly convinced that one or other of our videos will help you lead a healthier life – because that’s what motivates us.

Less is more when it comes to sustainability – and good for our earth
Naturheilzentrum Bottrop has been committed to the issue of sustainability ever since its foundation. Sustainability means living and acting in a way that preserves our earth as the basis for life in the future. If we continue to live beyond our means, our valuable ecosystem is in danger of collapse.
The good thing is: With just a few adjustments, everyone can help make everyday life more sustainable. It doesn’t always have to be major sacrifices. Learn more soon in the News section of the NABO website.
Hand on heart: Who has ever given much thought to how much waste each of us actually produces in our everyday lives? Statistics show that the volume of waste is increasing steadily. How about: No waste at the day-to-day level – zero waste? Learn more about this in the linked article.
