Homeopathy and Homotoxicology


Within Homotoxicology, we promote detoxification of the organism at a humoral level, at a matrix level and at a cellular level. We base our analysis for the prescription of homotoxicological medicine of the 6 phases of Homotoxicology, promoting that the patient excrete his own homotoxins in a safe and effective way.

Classical Homeopathy and Homotoxicology base their therapeutic effects on the principle of the lowest curative dose. This principle was proposed by Arndt-Schulz and it talks about the relationship between the different levels of dilution and activity at organism level. We can sum this up in the following:

Small stimuli can stimulate vital functions.

Moderate stimuli can accelerate vital functions.

Strong stimuli can act as inhibitors of vital functions, and very strong stimuli can suspend vital functions.

This is the basis for the integrative approach we offer to our guests, and along with the other therapeutic strategies, the guests will see themselves benefited with the multidisciplinary approach, and will experience what Functional Medicine is all about.

At Sanoviv we regularly offer our guests homeopathic treatments for their health issues. We have trained staff in Classical Homeopathy and Homotoxicology, and we apply both disciplines depending on the nature of the illness or the desired therapeutic effect.

Classical Homeopathy was constituted as a therapy by Dr. Samuel Hahnemann in 1811, based on his observations of Cullen’s work, who observed that a strong dose of quina (chinchona) provoked symptoms very similar to those of Malaria when administered to healthy people. Since then he conducted experiments on healthy people, where he reported all types of signs and symptoms when taking certain plant extracts. In this way Dr. Hahnemann developed what is known as “The Organon: the art of curing disease.” He combined his observations with those done by Hypocrates thousands of years before about the principle of likeness . To mitigate the toxic effect of the plant extracts that were used back then as medicine, Hahnemann developed the principle of infinitesimal, with which he was able to eliminate the chemical toxicity of the original substance and keep the power of stimulating the biological systems.

Within Classical Homeopathy, we take into consideration the factors concerning the disease, such as signs and symptoms for the prescription of the constitutional homeopathic treatment. And we also take into consideration the factors that might have triggered the disease as well as personality traits to choose an individualized homeopathic treatment. We base our selection process on the principles of Classic Homeopathy, so in this way we offer our guests the “information” that their biological systems need to find a new balance point as we promote the reactivation of their own physiological mechanisms to reestablish health.

Homotoxicology was developed by Dr Hans-Heinrich Reckeweg in 1952. He managed to combine his knowledge of Classical Homeopathy with modern medical science. The resulting synthesis continues to be the bridge between Classical Homeopathy and conventional medicine.

Dr Reckeweg formulated the following principle of Homotoxicology: “According to Homotoxicology, all those processes, syndromes and manifestations that we call diseases, are nothing but the expression of how the body fights off venoms, and that it wants to fight and excrete those venoms. The entire body wins or looses that battle. Those processes that we call diseases are always biological, that is, a natural and non random process that serves as a defense against the venom and as a way of detoxification.”
