About Lisa & immunoloco

Hi, glad that you are here!

I’m Lisa, the person behind immunoloco.

Since May 2018 I am a state-certi­fied natur­o­path, since 2019 a certi­fied fasting coun­selor and in 2020 I completed my trai­ning as a hypno­the­ra­pist and hypno­coach.

I am a strong believer of lifelong lear­ning and I am still devou­ring medical lite­ra­ture and scien­tific studies. My know­ledge helps me to better deal with my own illnesses and to constantly develop as a therapist.

Among other things, I am involved in the Asso­cia­tion for the Promo­tion of Allergy and Endo­scopy Rese­arch in Humans VAEM e.V. and I am an active member of MCAS Hope e.V Germany.

I was a guest speaker on NSAID into­le­rance (sali­cylate into­le­rance) at the 2nd Endo­scopy and Allergy Congress at the Wald­kran­ken­haus Erlangen. Further­more, I co-mode­rated the patient-centered track of the 4th Allergy and Endo­scopy Congress in October 2020, which was broad­cast online.

I want to create awareness for people with chronic, invi­sible illness, and encou­rage fellow suffe­rers. I write about living and obsta­cles with chronic illness as well. (If you would like to join in, feel free to contact me). I am also avail­able for presen­ta­tions, spee­ches and coaching.

In October 2020, I opened my own prac­tice focu­sing on auto­im­mune dise­ases, hormonal disor­ders, aller­gies, and mast cell diseases.

I came to the Dost­mann prac­tice with the following topics: recur­ring heada­ches and inci­pient meno­pausal symptoms.
The calm and compe­tent manner of Mrs. Dost­mann made me trust immedia­tely. She listened care­fully and took her time. I felt unders­tood and taken seriously.
Your thera­peutic approach showed an effect very quickly and I feel fitter and the quality of sleep is impro­ving incre­a­singly. I’m very grateful.
The atmo­s­phere in the prac­tice is plea­sant (high quality and very well equipped) and the spacious parking spaces in front of the house.
I felt very well advised and can only recom­mend Ms. Dostmann.

I recently visited the prac­tice as I am curr­ently chan­ging my diet. I was curious because you often get a wide variety of advice. However, I was convinced of the expert advice from Ms. Dost­mann from the start and felt that I was well advised. I also found it plea­sant that Ms. Dost­mann was open to ques­tions and took the time to answer them in detail. Another plus is the easy acces­si­bi­lity via the Winter­hausen train station and the modern equip­ment of the prac­tice. For this reason, a clear recommendation.

Clear recom­men­da­tion! Top!
Addi­tion July 8th, 2021
I’d like to add a few lines here after my 5‑star award a few months ago. Ms. Dost­mann takes a lot of time for the patient, she looks at him holisti­cally and adds the labo­ra­tory values ​​and avail­able findings. Right from the start I felt comfor­table, accepted and, above all, took it seriously. I am glad that I found my way to her after a long history of suffe­ring. She changed my diet, my beha­vior was analyzed and I changed it with her help. Your hypnosis is bene­fi­cial and insightful and, along with the other measures, has helped a lot. I’m very satis­fied. Thank you, Ms. Dostmann

About immu­no­loco & My Philosophy

I believe in science and evidence-based medi­cine and I have deve­loped a stong inte­rest in the rese­arch of life­style impact on health and the course of many dise­ases. I believe it is best to adjust one’s life­style and diet to best support one’s body, espe­cially in the case of MCAS and auto­im­mune diseases.

There­fore, immu­no­loco is my baby. I want to share know­ledge and expe­ri­ences about living with an immune system gone crazy and explain medical back­grounds. As I frequently colla­bo­rate with other health profes­sio­nals, you will find arti­cles of guest authors as well on this website.

My Personal Story

While studying for my BSc in general manage­ment, it became more and more appa­rent, that my immune system behaved some­what differ­ently from that of other people, giving cause to all sorts of problems which more often than not left my doctors puzzled. Around that time, I found myself more and more fasci­nated by the comple­xity of the human body, espe­cially the inner bioche­mical and physio­lo­gical workings and I seriously consi­dered swit­ching to study medicine.

However, my immune system had a mind of its own and after a nice and sunny vaca­tion, it decided to cause havoc and I found myself confined to my bed for six months.

I was lucky that I managed to complete my Bachelor’s degree success­fully befo­re­hand, but the career that I dreamt of now seemed unach­iev­able, consi­de­ring the cons­traints my body kept impo­sing on me.

Nobody really knew what kind of disease I had, even though the symptoms were severe enough to keep me confined to my bed for months. Had it not been for an atten­tive nurse who helped me to find a caring and expe­ri­enced physi­cian, who diagnosed me and took over my treat­ment, I might as well have died.

The apho­rism “When you hear hoof­beats behind you, don’t expect to see a zebra” Is widely known in medical circles. Coined by professor Theo­dore Wood­ward, Medical School Univer­sity of Mary­land in the late 1940’s it certainly has its merits.

but the down­side is, that if you really happen to have one of those rare “zebra dise­ases”, finding appro­priate treat­ment can be very chal­len­ging and the way until the correct diagnosis is estab­lished can feel like an odyssey.
At this point I like to extend a huge “thank you” to those doctors and thera­pists, who have chosen to work tirelessly for us “zebras”!

In 2015, I was diagnosed with auto­im­mune hypo­phy­sitis, an inflamma­tion of the pitui­tary gland caused by my own body attacking itself. This gland controls – among other things – thyroid and adrenal func­tions as well as sex hormones. Only later it became clear, that this was not an isolated problem but was actually part of and asso­ciated with a much larger pattern of other auto­im­mune diseases.

A year later in another relapse it became appa­rent that I had suffered from Systemic Lupus Erythe­ma­tosus (SLE) for quite some time without this being appro­pria­tely noticed. Addi­tional diagnoses added even later included Samter’s disease (AERD) and Mast Cell Acti­va­tion Syndrome (MCAS) which finally explained the unex­pected but severe anaphyl­ac­toid compli­ca­tions I had expe­ri­enced during and following opera­tions and the strong increase of allergic symptoms over the years.

The last diagnosis added to my growing list of rare dise­ases I call my own was small fiber neuro­pathy and dysau­to­nomia as part of my rheu­matic condi­tion, finally explai­ning some of the other symptoms I have to deal with in my daily life.

Despite the amount of medical baggage I carry, I do my best to live a life as joyful, happy and produc­tive as possible and call myself lucky to be surrounded and supported by my great friends and family.

To this day, I live with my wonderful partner and an immune system gone wild as well as disturbed mast cells near Würzburg/Bavaria and work as a natur­o­path in my own practice.

Although restric­tions and medi­ca­tions are part of my daily life, I am better and much happier than I could have dreamed of being confined to my bed in 2014.

I am looking forward to your message!
