Complementary and Integrative Medicine

In addition to the therapies of conventional medicine, complementary medicine offers additional options. Patients are advised and treated by medical doctors at the University Institute for Complementary and Integrative Medicine (IKIM) in the spirit of holistic medicine.

During outpatient consultations, we advise or treat with anthroposophically advanced medicine, phytotherapy (herbal medicine) and TCM/acupuncture. Patients can also seek advice from IKIM physicians during their stay at the Inselspital.

The basic health insurance covers:

  • Medical services (e.g. consultation hours)
  • Medication such as e.g. mistletoe preparations, herbal medicines and homeopathic remedies,
  • Acupuncture

Further services from anthroposophically advanced medicine and traditional Chinese medicine are covered by additional insurance.
