Homeopathy is a method of medical treatment designed to stimulate the body's own healing processes in order to cure illnesses. It is based upon the discovery that a substance in small doses may alleviate symptoms similar to those it causes at higher doses. The phrase "likes are cured by likes" is often used to describe a basic concept behind homeopathy.
Thus, the two cornerstones of homeopathy are that "likes are cured by likes," and that the remedies are properly diluted to eliminate or minimize their toxic effects.
In homotoxicology, diseases are considered to be ultimately caused by toxins, whether toxic chemicals, bacterial exotoxins, biological endotoxins, post-traumatic cellular debris and also byproducts of the bodies metabolic processes. Furthermore, disease symptoms are said to be the result of the body's attempt to heal itself and should not necessarily be suppressed.
In Homotoxicology, homoeopathicaly manufactured combination products are designed to work with the body's defense mechanisms and facilitate the body's elimination of toxic substances. When used in combination formulations which contain measurable amounts of homeopathically-prepared active ingredients, they can be utilized by Physicians to treat specific indications.
Combination homeopathic products in Homotoxicology are easy to understand and use for health care practitioners trained within the conventional medical paradigm, as well as those trained in nonconventional medicine.
Homotoxicology is a bridge between orthodox medicine which has a focus on tissue integrity and homoeopathy which has a focus on the systemic effects of imbalance within the person.
Homotoxicology can provide a framework to understand its effect at the tissue level, furthermore it can provide health care solutions which may be used alone or used to complement orthodox treatment without drug interactions.
