Our diseases and homotoxicology
Comparing the body to a car, you could say that the symptom of an illness is a light that turns on, just as it happens in a car. But when the oil light comes on, no one would ever think to remove the light bulb for not seeing the problem and continue to travel.
Unfortunately, very often, our body does not have the same attention we reserve to a car; In fact, when the light turns on inside the body, eliminate the symptom with a drug it’s like to “pull out” the light bulb that is reporting an ongoing problem.
H.H. Reckeweg, founder of homotoxicology, studied the behavior and the elimination of toxins that damage the human organism, the so-called “homotoxins”, noting that the disease is the struggle that engages the immune system to expel the poisons that pollute our tissues.
If the body is in “excess of toxins” caused by wrong feeding, allergies, medication intake, stress and environment, the immune system is activated to their expulsion: through the skin (eczema, herpes, excessive sweating, etc.), through the respiratory system (rhinitis, sinusitis, etc.), via the gastro-digestive tract (fever, diarrhea, etc.), via the kidneys/liver (cystitis, calculations, cirrhosis, etc.).
In practice, the body defends itself from homotoxins with anti-toxic reactions, which we commonly call “disease” and try to “fix” with a drug. This turns off the light on the symptom but not eliminate the toxins that have turned it on.
The abuse of several antibiotics, antipyretics and analgesics often block the effect of elimination and promote the transmigration of toxins in other tissues in which, becoming more aggressive, they can create more damage, even at the cellular level.
Homotoxicology, with the help of new researches in academic medicine (medical tests, diagnostic tests, etc.), helps the body to reactivate the functions of eliminating toxins and, in case of cellular damage, restores enzymatic cellular structure.
In conclusion homotoxical therapy does not eliminate the symptom, but launches a real impulse towards healing based on detoxification: this with the aid of homeopathic medications (both single and compounds) and other remedies.
