Doctor in charge, medical specialist for general medicine, naturopathic, expert for biological medicine (university Mailand), acupuncture, among others internistic and surgical postgraduate trainings, honorary president of the DNB – Deutscher Naturheilbund (German association for naturopathy), chief editor of the journal “Naturarzt”


From 1990 to 1993, Dr. Rainer Matejka had been scholar at our clinic led by Dr. Erich von Weckbecker. In 2016, he became doctor in charge. Since he admires interdisciplinary medicine, his main goal is to treat diseases aetiologically. “The diseases of civilisation and disorders are becoming more and more complex and require interdisciplinary treatment approaches”, says Dr. Matejka. Hence, the close cooperation between doctors and therapists is very important for him. According to Dr. Matejka, modern concepts, as those offered in the Malteser Klinik von Weckbecker, in order to change the lifestyle will gain in importance on a global scale – also in the scientific medical sector.

Nutrition and exercise is the key element of health for Ada von Ketteler – thus also when it comes to the treatment of many chronic diseases. The General Practitioner would especially like to give assistance for self help and motivate people to take self-responsibility. “What fascinates me the most about the concept of Weckbecker is the holistic view of an individual with the fasting cure as basis. This is how we show our patients a way towards a healthier lifestyle”, says Mrs von Ketteler. In her view, methods according to F.X. Mayr, such as the chewing training, can be combined perfectly with the fasting cure according to Weckbecker.

When Joachim Wernicke was 10 years old, he had an accident with near death experience that lead him to the decision to become a doctor. When he was a young physician, a severe disease brought him to natural medicine and homoeopathy. Corresponding to his model “living love and alleviate suffering”, personal affection towards the patients is of great significancy. “The identification with the patient is important in order to be able to read subjective symptoms objectively”, says Dr. Wernicke. He points to the importance of keeping in mind that the emotional life impacts the body as well. Joachim Wernickes objective is the continuation of the legacy of Dr. Erich von Weckbecker and the maintenance of the house’s spirit.
