Each cell in our body follows its own specific inner rhythm.
Activity and regeneration, reaction and rest follow each other. External and internal time givers control our physical, mental and emotional functions. It is therefore evident that the effect of medicines also varies throughout the day.
Chronotherapy investigates the effect of therapeutic measures in harmony with our inner clock.
This knowledge is infinitely valuable for the committed doctor. It can help avoid doing the right thing at the wrong time.

Thus, efficacy is increased and undesirable disturbing side effects are reduced.
