Dr. Thomas Rau, M.D.

Dr. Thomas Rau is recognized as one of the leading physicians in the world today.  As the creator of biological medicine, he’s been a pioneer in alternative health.  Among his many innovations are the integration of medical and dental treatment, the use of darkfield microscopy as a diagnostic tool, new methods of enhancing detoxification and restoring immune strength, and highly successful treatment protocols for over a dozen disorders, including cancer, autoimmune disease, and Lyme.

Dr. Rau graduated from the University of Berne, the leading medical school in Switzerland, and is a certified Medical Doctor in both Switzerland and the United States.  He began private practice over 35 years ago as a conventional physician specializing in internal medicine and rheumatology.  But he soon noticed, “With classical medicine, my patients weren’t getting better.”  Thus began his great mission in life – to create a new system of medicine that really did heal patients.

Driven by a relentless curiosity, Dr. Rau began studying every form of alternative medicine, beginning with the methods his patients told him had worked for them.  His travels took him all over the world, and included Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM), Ayurveda, homeopathy, and many other disciplines, from the most ancient to the most modern.

Dr. Rau began to combine elements of these disciplines with the legacy of Swiss medicine, a distinct medical tradition that dated back 500 years to the original Paracelsus.  That gave him the theoretical understanding of the body’s powerful regulatory systems.  He used this as the foundation of a comprehensive new medical theory he called “biological medicine”.

Over the past 24 years as Medical Director of Paracelsus, Dr. Rau has evolved biological medicine into a comprehensive system of diagnostic and therapeutic methods.  In the process, Dr. Rau has built the Clinic into the leading center for alternative medicine in Europe.  He has recruited and trained an unmatched professional staff of doctors, dentists, therapists and lab technicians.

Dr. Rau devotes time to sharing his knowledge with practitioners from around the world.  Seminars and courses are offered at Paracelsus, at locations around the world, and on-line.  He is a popular speaker and advocate for biological medicine.  Dr. Rau has also authored five books, including the definitive Biological Medicine.
