The Causes of Illness &
Degenerative Diseases,

Part 3: The Homotoxins All Around Us (and In Us)

The word “toxicology” is derived from two Greek words: toxikon, meaning poison, and logia, meaning a field of study. Homotoxicology, then, is the study of how toxins affect humans, homo sapiens. It was developed in the mid-20th century by German physician Hans-Heinrich Reckeweg and is known today as bioregulatory medicine.

We ended last time by noting the vast number of synthetic chemicals we’re exposed to every day – in the products we buy, the food we consume, the water we drink, the air we breathe. These are all considered homotoxins, which your body strives to defend against.

But not all of them come from outside the body. Metabolic waste generated from within – by bacteria or other microbes, for instance – is also homotoxic.

In most basic terms, a homotoxin is anything that interferes with or interrupts the thousands of metabolic and energetic processes monitored by the autoregulatory system we looked at previously. “Toxicity” results when you take in or produce more homotoxins than your body can easily eliminate.

Toxins which enter the body from the external environment are called exogenous toxins. They can also be called toxicants or xenobiotics. These come through ingestion, breathing, or absorption. All have an impact on your body.

About the author

In the early 1980s, he was inspired by a number of notable German researchers, physicians and dentists who were then integrating medical and dental practices – especially Dr. Voll, Dr. Kramer, Dr. Turk, Mr. Erich Rasche and Dr. Walter Sturm of the Occidental Institute Research Foundation.

As a result of his study and continued research, in 1985, he and Dr. Ed Arana co-founded the American Academy of Biological Dentistry to help bring the new German knowledge to American practice. (The organization continues today as the International Academy of Biological Dentistry and Medicine.).
