We are back…

n view of the epidemic development and based on scientific recommendations, the Federal Council decided on 16 April 2020 to relax measures to protect the population from the new coronavirus. The relaxation will take place in strict compliance with protective measures. From 27 April 2020, facilities offering services involving physical contact may reopen, provided the safety of clients and therapists is guaranteed. This applies to all therapists regardless of the method used. We are of course very pleased that our Centre for Natural and Human Medicine – KiraMed – will be among the first to be allowed to resume operations.

Olivier Ruppen – Diploma in Naturopathy

Kira Health - Olivier
Kira Health – Olivier

After four long years full of privations with many ups, but also several downs, I am happy to announce that I have successfully completed my studies in naturopathy at Paramed AG in Baar  on June 23rd with the final exams. Speaking with the words of the Swiss dialect rocker Gölä: “Zyt zum Danke! – time to say thank you!“:

My thanks goes out to:

  • all of my friends who have always believed in me and  have motivated and supported me throughout these four long years
  • my clients – you are my inspiration and motivation to always demand the maximum of me and to continue  this journey
  • Paramed AG in Baar – the school administration for always responding patiently and competently to my questions and supporting me with good advice. The teachers with their never ending knowledge that they have passed on with ardor to us students. My colleagues, as well as the medical staff – you have always understood me and showed me new ways to adapt this knowledge. All the many helpers, both in front and in the back – it is almost impossible to cite them all. And of course to Dr. Jürg Hess – without you, Paramed wouldn’t even exist – thank you dear Jürg!
  • und last, but not least, to my family. Your support, your understanding and your continuous trust that all will be good in the end are invaluable. This wouldn’t have been possible without you. I’m happy and grateful to have you. Love you!

And if I missed anyone – please forgive me!

I’m looking forward to the future – especially to the free weekends 🙂

Our website has moved

Beginning December 5th, the “.health” domains are available worldwide. They give professional health-care companies the possibility to show their clients the purpose of their services at the blink of an eye. Therefore, we’re happy and proud to announce that we have adapted our web-address as one of the first companies worldwide. You now find us here:


Our email-addresses have also been ajusted; @kirahealth.ch became @kira.health.

Of course, any resemblance to our company name is puuuure coincidence 😉

NST Deep Cures workshop in Baar

This year, less than a handful of NST workshops will take place worldwide. Two in. Australia, and one – in Switzerland at Paramed Academy in Baar (ZG). And once again, Dr. Michael Nixon-Livy was committed to lead the workshop  in person. 14 participants from Switzerland, Germany and the UK were all ears listening to the precious tipps and the extraordinary know-how and experience of the founder of NST. Charming and with lots of humor Michael Nixon-Livy, assisted by his interpreter Olivier Ruppen,  brought the new information and protocols to the participants.

The 3 workshop-days just flew by in no time and everyone agreed that it was, once again, worth participating!

We hope to be able to welcome Dr. Nixon-Livy next year in Switzerland, again, to enlarge the basis of NST practitioners in our country. As soon as we know the dates of the 2018 workshops, we will publish them on this website, so stay tuned.

The black Spot

One day a professor entered the classroom and asked his students to prepare for a surprise test. They waited anxiously at their desks for the test to begin. The professor handed out the question paper, with the text facing down as usual. Once he handed them all out, he asked his students to turn the page and begin. To everyone’s surprise, there were no questions….just a black dot in the center of the page. The professor seeing the expression on everyone’s face, told them the following:

“I want you to write what you see there.”

The students confused, got started on the inexplicable task.

At the end of the class, the professor took all the answer papers and started reading each one of them aloud in front of all the students. All of them with no exceptions, described the black dot, trying to explain its position in the middle of the sheet, etc. etc. etc. After all had been read, the classroom silent, the professor began to explain:

“I am not going to grade on you this, I just wanted to give you something to think about. No one wrote about the white part of the paper. Everyone focused on the black dot – and the same happens in our lives. We have a white paper to observe and enjoy, but we always focus on the dark spots. Our life is a gift given to us by God, with love and care, and we always have reasons to celebrate – nature renewing itself everyday, our friends around us, the job that provides our livelihood, the miracles we see everyday…….

However we insist on focusing only on the dark spots – the health issues that bother us, the lack of money, the complicated relationship with a family member, the disappointment with a friend etc

The dark spots are very small compared to everything we have in our lives, but they are the ones that pollute our minds.

Take your eyes away from the black spots in your life. Enjoy each one of your blessings, each moment that life gives you.

Be happy and live a life positively!

Black spot on white space.

Just how often are we a victim of our own thoughts – building our own prison full of pain and sorrow?

Kira Health gets a new design

Right on time for the upcoming new year, we have given our website a brand-new look. The new design is fresher and more modern than before. And though we have worked hard, one or the other bug may still be hidden somewhere out there in cyberspace. But our scouts are on their way to find these problem-zones and to correct them one-by-one.

We hope that you will like the new site just as much as we do an of course we appreciate your feedback.

For the upcoming 2017, we wish you all a year without any pain for your soul and without any sorrows. With just enough success to keep you happy and only as much stress as you can handle to stay healthy. With as little worries as possible and as much joy as needed to stay happy the next 365 days!

Interview mit Dr.med. Simon Feldhaus

My mother used to say: “Everyone would like to reach 100 years of age – but we are all afraid in getting older!”. Fact is: sooner, rather than later in life, everyone is confronted with aging. But how should therapists deal with elderly people? And what could we do to support the aging-process so that we could ease the burden a little bit?

My next interview-partner in my TV-show “Ischi Gsundheit” is very familiar with the topic: Dr. Simon Feldhaus is a medical doctor and  naturopath at Paramed AG in Baar/ZG, a center for complementary and traditional medicine. Furthermore, he is the President of the Swiss Anti-Aging Society.

His refreshing comments show that “aging”  – correctly – starts in your youth!

Enjoy the show.

As usual, I’m looking forward to your comments and questions.
