Naturheilzentrum Bottrop: A review of 2019 – A preview of 2020
We look back at the past year and forward to the upcoming year
Dear Friends and Guests,
Dear Patients and Relatives,
Dear Followers and NABOs,
What a great, eventful, and exciting year it has been at Naturheilzentrum Bottrop (‘NABO’ for short). So many touching and emotional moments with a tear or two. Moments of joy and a lot of laughter. Once again, there were numerous encounters with you - filled with warmth, love, and appreciation. You are the ones who give us the ambition and boundless strength to do our best and much more every day. To stay more on the ball, to progress, and to be sustainable in terms of health and lifestyle. Our goal: to get ahead in the game, so that you can experience, see and read the facts and tips in the mainstream media ahead of time. In doing so, we are also restoring your confidence in us.
Health and lifestyle to go - that's our motto. Up-to-date health tips with added value for everyday life. Helping you boost your health is a goal which we are happy to make every effort for and spare no expense. We’ll definitely top 2019 again, in any event. And we’ll achieve this, despite the fact that we have already put a lot of effort into this year. Speaking of which, here's a quick look back at what your health experts, Farid Zitoun and Christian Rüger experienced in 2019. Have fun!
The year began – with the garbage man
The environment, climate, and nature conservation are more important than ever. In everyday life, many of us want more possibilities to actively do something for the good of our planet. In fact, each of us can accomplish this – and at the same time do something good for our own bodies! The NABO institute’s managers, Farid Zitoun and Christian Rüger didn’t do too badly in their role as garbage collectors, and they showed how you can combine environmental protection and health: Plogging is a magic word that combines jogging with a good deed for the general public. Those who collect and dispose of garbage that is discarded along their running routes, will beautify the landscape and keep fit. It’s not just a great way to keep you warm and fit on the cold days of the year, but it’ll also be a (your) valuable contribution to environmental protection.
A beacon in spring: Naturheilzentrum Bottrop - the new trailer for the YouTube channel
NABO is entitled and committed to always pushing the limits of what is possible. To carry on for you where others might give up. And at the same time remaining realistic, but always hopefully optimistic. This is also reflected in the new trailer, which we published on the Naturheilzentrum Bottrop YouTube channel in spring and which now welcomes you on the channel's homepage. Practical tips in the areas of health and lifestyle –Personally presented by Farid Zitoun and Christian Rüger, of course. Plus lots of tips and useful advice for your everyday life. Experiencing Health 2Go.
Fact check - in the summer heat we made it clear: Is vegan food really healthy?
Summer really made every one of us perspire. However, it didn’t prevent the two naturopaths, Farid Zitoun and Christian Rüger plus their staff from asking a question for you; what influence can a vegan diet have on your health? Not least because the idea of completely dispensing with animal products somehow seems tempting after the festive season, when the consequences of overindulging add inches our hips for some time thereafter. For many, the negative effect of meat on the climate is also now a reason to refrain from animal products. But is being a vegan healthy in the long run? Zitoun and Rüger clarify this!
Important in the dark season: Optimal eye health
Your eyes will be placed under particular strain when the nights are long and dark. Pernicious eye diseases such as presbyopia first manifest themselves when light is poor, and therefore require everyone to maintain high awareness of their own eye health. Statistics and studies show that undiagnosed eye diseases can have fatal consequences, especially in old age. This makes the question of how you can counteract this all the more important. The Youtubers and lifestyle bloggers, Farid Zitoun and Christian Rüger explain what will do our eyes good – and not just in winter.
Thank you very much for your fantastic support
As always, you will find all the topics, information, and recipes on our website and on the Naturheilzentrum Bottrop YouTube channel. In order to kick things off in 2020, we have already prepared many exciting topics with health tips from our practice. We will be delighted to share them with you and furthermore, we hope that one or another of them will provide a more conscious awareness to life.
At this point, we would like to thank everyone from the bottom of our hearts. Thank you for your fantastic support. Thank you for your productive comments and good wishes. Thank you for your pictures, likes, and shares. Thanks to all those who have actively or passively accompanied, motivated, and above all, have given us a lot of joy in return. Thanks again to all the guest authors who have provided NABO with such great content. We like to push ourselves to the limit and beyond for you – yesterday, today, and tomorrow.
Incidentally: Doing something good for yourself is especially important when it is cold and dark outside. Here you’ll find a very simple but superb recipe tip that will warm the heart, even on the darkest days. Have fun and bon appétit - see you by 2020 at the latest!
