About Homotoxicology : Herba est ex luce, which translates to plants are from light
Homotoxicology is seen as a “bridge” between allopathic medicine and homeopathic medicine.
Homotoxicology has an underlying concept that all manifestations of life depend on the conversion of chemical compounds. They view every organism as a flowing system of elements which continuously attempts to maintain a state of homeostasis. This balance is disturbed by the effects of toxic substances. When the organism mounts a defense against such toxins the resulting “battle” manifests as symptoms or disease. The bottom line for homotoxicology is that diseases are an expression of the defensive effort of the organism against toxins, and its attempt to counteract and expel them. In this defensive struggle, the organism may win or lose each battle, however symptoms are an inevitable manifestation.
Homotoxicology uses a variety of homeopathic remedies, sarcodes, nosodes and other preparations to activate the bodies defensive and regulatory processes and help the disrupted functions return to homeostasis. Dr. Reckeweg coined the term homotoxins (human poisons) which we are exposed to when the body encounters harmful substances and attempts to expel or neutralize them. His observations were that first the body tries to eliminate the toxins by excretion, for example diarrhea or rhinitis. If the excretion is insufficient, a reaction ensues, such as a fever which would be the body’s attempt to burn off or neutralize the toxins.
If the homotoxins continue to flow into the body, it attempts to store or isolate them in different compartments under the form of cellulitis or benign tumors. Unchecked this may lead to cellular impregnation with the penetration of toxins into key organs such as the heart or brain. This can lead to organ degeneration with metaplasia and finally the creation of a neoplasm. Once the disease reaches the neoplastic stage, death of the organism is not far behind.
Ancient medical traditions all agree that disease exists on subtle energetic levels before it manifests itself on physical levels.
New Homeopathy reaches from the physical body far into the roots of consciousness, back into connection with the higher self or spirit. Our remedies impact molecular, physiologic, energetic, mental and spiritual events simultaneously. The energetic essence from atoms is released into these liquids that trigger healing mechanisms within the body and universe. Our products work like vaccines, they administer similar energetic patterns as the disease itself and the body counteracts to fix the disease. Since the minutest, finest energetic essence is used, it is able to travel freely between the microcosm (body) and macrocosm (universe) triggering healing mechanisms in the cells, physical body, mind, energy body and universal matrix.
BACKGROUND People are turning to alternative health care for many reasons. Some seek to avoid the rising cost of traditional health care, some the staggering side-effects associated with allopathic drugs. Others have discovered the necessity to enhance the individual’s own immune system, which has been broken down by exposure to chemicals, antibiotics, and other environmental toxins.
HOMEOPATHY Homeopathy recognizes the patient as a whole and considers both the individual’s physical and psychological components. When a disease or condition creates symptoms, homeopathy acknowledges them as the body’s attempt to be rid of the infection or imbalance. The use of minute amounts of natural substances which mimic the body’s symptoms stimulate its attempt to regain homeostasis, or balance. Where allopathic medicine merely suppresses symptoms, homeopathic medicines excite the patient’s immune system and support the natural healing process.
INTRODUCTION Homeopathy is a natural therapeutic method offering a global and personalized approach to each individual. According to the Greek Etymology, the term “Homeopathy ” means:
HOMEO = Alike or similar . PATHOS = Suffering or disease
Which signifies “like cures like”.
Homeopathy is based on three basic principals:
The law of similars A substance administrated in strong doses to a healthy person will provoke particular symptoms, whereas this same substance potentized and taken in infinitesimal dosages can eliminate the same symptoms in an inflicted individual.
The law of infinitesimality Homeopathic medicines are derived from plant, animal, mineral, or chemical substances which are macerated in order to obtain the mother tincture (full strength); from this, a drop is then diluted and potentized. This process of dynamization, as it is termed, will be repeated until the desired infinitesimal dilution is obtained.
The law of individualization The homeopath considers each individual to be a unique person having his/her own psychic and physical symptoms as well as his/her own hereditary predispositions. With respect to an illness, each individual reacts in very different ways.
Homeopathy treats the person and not his/her illness.
HISTORY Hippocrates was the first to establish the similarity principal but unfortunately, his theory was quickly forgotten.
In 1790, Samuel Hahnemann, a German physician, discovered homeopathy by translating a materia medica. He observed that the substance China (Peruvian bark), containing quinine, administered in high dosage to a healthy individual, provoked an intermittent fever, and that this same remedy, taken in infinitesimal dosages, cured this symptom in an individual inflicted with this same type of fever. He demonstrated this principle on himself and his colleagues, and repeated experiments with other substances. The results were always very conclusive.
In 1796, he published his theories and experiments based on the “vital force”, the capacity of the individual’s reaction in response to illness, as well as the law of similars.
Towards the end of the 19th century, Dr. Heinrich Reckeweg founded the Laboratorium Eupha where he developed and used the first homeopathic medications formulated according to Hahnemann’s similarity principle.
In 1947, his sons K. Günther and Alfred Reckeweg founded Dr. Reckeweg & Co. Since that time, they have accommodated to the needs of the population. Based on the homeopathic principal of proving a remedy in healthy people, Dr. Reckeweg Homeopathic Specialties were developed from therapeutic practice. They are produced from raw materials of the highest quality and are strictly manufactured in accordance with the German Homeopathic Pharmacopoeia.
Modernization has facilitated production and distribution. Today, Dr. Reckeweg & Co. supplies its products to over 40 countries and is world-renowned for the unsurpassed quality of its products.
