Existing is good, Living is better
We all know this, even though sometimes we may forget it. Each stage of life has its positives and its negatives, but enjoying the present moment and always focusing on the bright side helps us live a happy and content life. We also know that this approach is beneficial to our health.
However, this is easier to say than it is to realize.
Lumen is intended to be a health catalyst that improves your prospects for health expectancy. Put more simply, Lumen will allow you to understand what you can do to live as healthily and for as long as possible.
Lūmĕn, ĭnis (lux, luceo)
Etymologically, Lumen comes from the Latin luceo and is translated as « light, clarity». Its meaning is scintillating and inspiring, just like our preventive medicine :
to better combat
‘Good health and living well’ and ‘healthy aging’ are the art of living pleasantly and wisely. This can be very difficult to do in our daily lives.
Although life expectancy depends on our genetic predisposition, heredity is responsible for only about 25% of our health and aging outcomes. Our environment and lifestyle determine the remaining 75%, elements on which we can consciously act, even belatedly.
In Europe, the number of years of healthy life at birth is estimated at around 65 years, which is 80% of total life expectancy.
It is easy to understand that combatting illness or aging has one goal: to gain years of life in which you have good health and are free of health problems.
Lumen will accompany you throughout this battle. Through its preventive and regenerative medicine, your health expectancy can be improved by up to 15 years.
rather than endure !
Yes, accidents in life are inevitable.
Yes, it is sometimes difficult to change our behavior or to make up for health risks we took in the past.
While life can include periods of frailty, addiction and disease, Lumen aspires to challenge consensus and have a real impact on health.
Disease does not have to be fatal! We step in before you even have any symptoms: early identification of disease and early intervention can improve your prognosis.
It is no longer a question of putting up with poor health! We determine which therapeutic strategies will optimize your current and future health.
There is no path laid out for you, each patient is unique. We tell you which lifestyle adjustments you need to make to improve your health in the long term.
Whether you are fighting a health problem or the aging process, Lumen is committed to leading this battle for you and with you. You will be the one to experience the benefits.

Our day clinic
Our day clinic is located in a magnificent 18th century mansion at the gateway to Geneva, in the commune of Chêne-Bougeries. Built around 1780, the mansion once belonged to the "Domaine de Mon Plaisir".
Over the years, the house has had various uses, including as a retirement home.
Given the architectural quality of the building, a thorough renovation was undertaken with special care given to the choice and use of materials to restore the building to its original glory.
Today, we welcome you to a place steeped in history to offer you a medicine of the future.
