An Introduction to Homotoxicology

Homo means human and toxicology is a science that deals with toxins, therefore, homotoxicology is the study of human toxins. The object of homotoxicology is to stimulate and regulate the body’s self healing capabilities thereby eliminating homotoxins and ultimately leading to the resolution of illness. Homeopathic remedies are utilized throughout this process and are customized to each patient’s individual needs. Electro-Acupuncture (EAV) is a non invasive testing modality offered at each appointment and its primary function is to provide energetic insight into the physiology, biochemistry and pathology of our patients.

There are six phases in Homotoxicology representing the phases the body uses either to eliminate toxins or deposit them in some part of the body in an attempt to maintain health. The six phases are listed below.

Phase 1 Phase 2 Phase 3 Phase 4 Phase 5 Phase 6
Excretion Reaction Deposition Impregnation Degeneration Neoplasm

Here is an example of how the phases work. The body starts at Phase 1. This is where the body comes into contact with a toxin such as breathing in a toxin.

In Phase 1 the body would try to excrete the toxin by sneezing, coughing, sweating, vomiting, or pushing it through the urine and feces. If the body is unsuccessful at excreting the toxin it then moves to Phase 2.

In Phase 2 the body begins to react to the toxin through inflammation. Here is where the body produces a fever, mucus, swelling, etc. This is the natural process the body uses to move the toxin to Phase 1 where it can be excreted. If this process is stopped for any reason the body moves to Phase 3.

In Phase 3, the body takes the toxin and deposits it somewhere in the body. The idea is that when it gets enough resources it will come back later and get the toxin and move it out through Phase 2. If this doesn’t happen and a new toxin comes in, the body will move to Phase 4.

Phase 4 is the impregnation phase. This is created when the body places one toxin on top of another toxin. Now the area is unable to continue to function and moves to Phase 5.

Phase 5 is the degeneration phase. This is where the body stops functioning properly and begins to break down. Many people die in Phase 5. Some of the disease processes that are listed in Phase 5 are fibromyalgia, multiple sclerosis, lupus, tuberculosis, and heart attack. (Some people move through phase 5 without symptoms other than fatigue.) If the body continues to accumulate toxins, it will eventually move to Phase 6.

Phase 6 is neoplasm, also known as the cancer phase.
