Homotoxicology / Biomesotherapy
Homotoxicology was founded in 1952 by Dr. Reckeweg. He started with the principles of classical Homoeopathy as developed by Hahnemann, and integrated them with the new discoveries in biochemistry and embryology that had been made by the 1940’s. The medications, which he formulated, are derived from: the enzyme systems of the body, allopathic medicines, extensive nosode preparations, and the more traditional homeopathic remedies.
In Homotoxicology, it is understood that diseases are caused by toxins.
What are toxins? How do toxins impact health?
Dr Reckeweg defined ‘Homotoxins’ as substances that were harmful to the human body.
Exogenous toxins that are introduced or produced from outside the human body include air pollution, chemicals, pesticides, metals such as mercury, allopathic drug residue, bacteria, viruses, infections in the gut, including Candida, and gut dysbiosis (often due to an unhealthy diet).
Endogenous toxins are produced inside the body and come from byproducts of the body’s metabolic processes, e.g. lactic acid, adrenaline, and histamine, nutrient deficiencies, and psychological stressors.
Homotoxicology sees disease as the result of the body’s attempt to heal itself. Most of the symptoms of illness are the result of defensive effort of organism in order to eliminate the toxins, and should not necessarily be suppressed. In minor, self-limiting disorders, the body does this unaided. In more serious situations, treatment is needed. If the treatment used eliminates the Homotoxins, then real healing results. If the treatment suppresses the Homotoxins, however, (antibiotics, steroids; most drugs) then they go deeper into the tissues and manifest after a latent period as a more destructive disease, and may lead to chronic degenerative disease.
Homotoxicological products are designed to work with the body’s defense mechanisms and facilitate the body’s elimination of toxic substances and to stimulate the body’s inherent capacity to heal itself. They do not suppress symptoms.
Evidence based theory – Homotoxicology is a (sophisticated) modern form of homoeopathy and is the most prescribed form of natural medicine in Germany, where it has been used for over 50 years and is practiced by conventional doctors and natural therapists alike. In fact, 80% of orthodox doctors in Germany prescribe homoeopathic or antihomotoxic preparations for their patients. The efficacy and safety of homotoxicology is supported by close to 100 clinical trials. Scientific trials on one product alone, Traumeel, have shown it to be as effective as a COX 2 inhibitor, without the potential side effects of gastric bleeding.
HOMOTOXICOLOCY is used to treat a wide range of chronic and acute health conditions including:
Homotoxicological products come in tablets, liquid vials, oral drops, and injection solutions.
Homotoxicological remedies and preparations usually have practically no side effects and may easily be combined with other medications when required. This is important for chronically ill patients who, due to their various ailments, are frequently required to take several medications at the same time
BIOMESOTHERAPY / BIOPUNCTURE
What is biomesotherapy?
BIOMESOTHERAPY combinines two well-proven healing methods – acupuncture and homeopathy.
Biomesotherapy is a new therapy consisting of the use of homotoxicological products and the stimulation of acupuncture and trigger points in the body with a saline solution.

How is Biomesotherapy done?
Does it hurt?
With the “Inject-ease” device, the needles used are very fine and more like acupuncture needles. In fact mostly no discomfort is felt by the patient. Most people are surprised how easily and quickly injections are given.
What is Biomesotherapy useful for?
Biomesotherapy is useful for all types of conditions, but it is especially used for acute and chronic pain, and has been shown to be comparable to cortisone therapy without the added side affects.
Conditions include muscular pain, arthritis, lower back pain, neck pain, frozen shoulder, carpal tunnel syndrome, tennis elbow, ankle sprain, sciatica, fibromyalgia, spurs, and increased recovery from sports injury.
More than 10 years of experience in Europe support that Biomesotherapy provides alleviation of pain, inhibition of inflammation, increased circulation, muscle relaxation, fine nerve endings repair and stimulation of your own body’s healing mechanisms, thus speeding up the process of injury recovery.
How long does biomesotherapy take to work?
Some people experience relief of their pain within minutes of their first treatment, however, it can take up to half an hour. Sessions are for approximately half an hour. Depending on the severity of the condition, treatment is often once or twice weekly for the first two weeks, and as the healing process is facilitated and the condition is ameliorated, treatments become weekly, fortnightly or monthly. Some conditions may require maintenance treatments to ensure that wellness is supported.
Safety and efficiency of biomesotherapy
Practitioners of Biomesotherapy are using a technique that adheres to strict technical guidelines. They have a duty of care as a professional clinician, which involves using correct technique and sterile disposable material.
The products used in Biomesotherapy are developed in Germany and meet strict Australian Standards established by the TGA. The diluted natural medicines commonly used contain no impurities, additives or preservatives
