Dr. Franz Xavier Mayr, M.D.

Dr. Franz Xaver Mayr, M.D.Dr. Franz Xavier Mayr ( 1875-1965) was the most famous physician in Karlsbad and founder of the Mayr Diagnostic Method and Mayr Therapy. Before WWI Karlsbad (now Czechoslovakia) was the Mecca for treating digestive problems. Thousands of prominent people came there to regain good health and good looks. Dr. Mayr proved that there was a close link between the health of the digestive system and ones overall health and attractiveness. He made lecture tours throughout Europe and the United States and in 1950 began training physicians in Vienna in his revolutionary natural cure based on intestinal cleansing.

While still a medical student, Dr Mayr asked himself: how does one recognize a healthy intestinal tract? What are the shape, size and characteristics of a healthy stomach? Where lies the transition point between healthy and unhealthy? Realizing that there was no diagnostic criterion for differentiating between a healthy and functionally severely impaired digestive system, he treated many of his patients with a special diet and intestinal cleansing. From this developed the basic principles of the Diagnostics according to F. X. Mayr and the famous Mayr® Cure.
