MEDICAL SPECIALTIESSpecialist in general medicine with a special focus on holistic medicine
Holistic medicine in Palma de Mallorca
Mr Anton Urlacher was born in Berlin, Germany, in 1975 and completed his medical studies at the Charité Medical School in Berlin.
From 2006 onwards, he continued his training in various fields and locations throughout Germany, finally qualifying as a specialist in general medicine in 2012.
His work focusses on the person as a whole, consisting of body, mind and spirit, enabling him to recognise and treat stress, deficiencies and illnesses on all levels.
Cooperation with medical specialists from various fields of medicine offers considerable advantages as this leads to an exact diagnosis of the cause of an illness so that the treatment can be personalised for each individual patient, often without the use of medication. This approach means that complaints can be alleviated and at the same time targeted and long-term measures found to fight their causes.
Mr Urlacher offers both holistic preventive care as well as treatment for acute and chronic diseases.

Chinese medicineTraditional Chinese Medicine or TCM is a system of treatment that has evolved over the course of more than 2500 years and originated in ancient China. It essentially consists of five pillars:
- Acupuncture and moxibustion
- Traditional Chinese drug therapy
- Coordination exercises (Qigong and Tai Chi)
- Massage (Tuina)
- Nutrition (Chinese Dietetics)
In acupuncture, fine needles are placed into specific points of the body (acupuncture points) in order to influence and enhance the energy flow, also known as the Qi flow.
In moxibustion, the acupuncture points are heated by burning mugwort herb, thus stimulating the flow of energy in a similar way to acupuncture.
How does acupuncture work?
Western medicine and science assume that the stimulating effect of the needles releases more endorphins, i.e. the body's natural pain relievers. This can greatly reduce the intensity of pain, sometimes without the need for any medication at all.
Influence on endogenous messenger substances:
Endogenous messenger substances such as the "happy hormones" serotonin, dopamine, noradrenaline, oxytocin etc. are also released. This significantly reduces stress and enhances the feeling of well-being.
All nerve and muscle processes are partly electrical processes. By stimulating acupuncture points with needles, the therapist can, for example, influence the polarity (electrical charge) of the muscle cell. This in turn can improve the blood flow to the surrounding muscles.
Traditional Chinese drug therapy
This form of therapy uses a combination of various plant components such as plant seeds, berries, roots, leaves, barks, but also mineral substances, to create a personalised recipe (in China this may also be of animal origin - though not in Europe!). These medicines usually consist of 2-20 different plant components in order to enhance the effectiveness through synergies. This is also standard and time-tested practice in Western phytotherapy.
Examples of herbal combinations in Western phytotherapy
Vervain + gentian root + garden sorrel for sinusitis; saw palmetto fruit + nettle root for urinary complaints in benign prostatic hyperplasia, rosemary + centaury + lovage for inflammatory diseases of the urinary tract; Iberis amara + angelica root + chamomile flowers + caraway fruit + milk thistle fruit + lemon balm leaves + peppermint leaves + ... for gastrointestinal complaints; nasturtium and horseradish (mustard oils) for various colds, to name but a few.
There are also a number of positive meta-analyses and studies on traditional Chinese drug therapy which are gaining interest in Western medicine, too, especially for the (concomitant) treatment of infectious, autoimmune, metabolic and gastrointestinal diseases.
Mitochondria are cell organelles that generate ATP (adenosine triphosphate), the so-called "power plants of the cells", and serve as energy carriers for numerous metabolic processes inside and outside the cell.
IHHT = Interval Hypoxia Hyperoxia Therapy is a procedure that strengthens mitochondria: It is a special form of oxygen training or simulated high altitude training, where the patient is alternately supplied with oxygen-rich and oxygen-poor air via a breathing mask in order to increase the number of healthy mitochondria and stimulate the production of ATP.
A number of studies clearly show the benefits of hypoxia training on hormones, neurotransmitters, cognition and well-being. The 2019 Nobel Prize in Medicine was awarded to three scientists, Kaelin/Semenza/Ratcliffe, for their discovery of how hypoxia, in particular, contributes to the body's adaptive responses and promotes an adequate oxygen supply to all organ systems.
IHHT is used, among other things, to improve cellular tuning and microcirculation, to stimulate blood circulation, to reduce stress, to accompany weight loss and to improve performance in general. Often, high altitude training is combined with individually prepared mineral and vitamin infusions containing antioxidants and administered in high doses to neutralise free radicals effectively and thus enhance the "detoxification and cellular cleansing” process.
The goal of all therapies is:
- Strengthening of the immune system
- Build up of energy
