Dr. Carla Peeters gave a presentation during the congress about the vision and results of COBALA with the title "The future of medicine is personalized and nutrition based". The knowledge from traditional medicine can be of importance for the prevention and recovery of diseases in today's society in which we are confronted with a sharp increase in chronic diseases, as a result of which people are only partially or no longer able to participate in the labor process. During the congress special attention was paid to the interest from the Netherlands in medicinal plants from South India since the 17th century. COBALA integrates traditional wisdoms in modern medicine in an innovative way. The unique approach to Personalized Integrative Care® has led to the recovery of complaints for many people over the past 3 years. Dr Peeters participated in a strategic discussion with professors, medical staff and representatives from the ministry and WHO.
