Homotoxicology is based on the intergration of basic medical science with the principles of homeopathic medicine. It represents a unique intellectual synthesis between the concepts of molecular biology, biochemistry, toxicology, and pathophysiology, resulting in non-toxic biological therapy. Biological medicine has been defined as “the art and science of healing in which the therapeutic measures are oriented to the unique life stresses and the healing methods are designed for the capability of the individual patient to regulate, regenerate, adapt, and self heal.” Biological medicine seems to have emerged as the consensus term to describe this advanced form of primary care medical practice in European countries. The terms “integrative medicine” or “complimentary medicine” seems to be the preferred term in the United States.
DISEASE, HEALTH AND CURE are defined in homotoxicology as follows: Diseases are the expression of the biologically appropriate defense against exogenous and endogenous homotoxins (humoral phases: excretion phase, reaction phase, deposition phases), or, they are an attempt to compensate for the harmful affects of toxins (cellular phases: impregnation phases, degeneration phases, and neoplasm phases).
Health means freedom from homotoxins and the elimination of homotoxin damage.
To win back the ideal condition lost through the most varied effects of homotoxins (damage due to the environment and civilization, retoxication through retoxic therapy, etc.) is the basic idea of Homotoxicology, the aim of which is detoxification and removal of the harmful effects of toxins.
