New York/Stuttgart, September 2009 – Homotoxicology is a form of therapy that uses homeopathic remedies with the aim of eliminating toxins from the human body. Over the past 50 years, this approach to disease treatment has gained tremendous ground not only in general practice but also in specialized medical branches. Introduction to Bioregulatory Medicine, published by Thieme, is a comprehensive, user-friendly handbook on the theory and practice of bioregulatory medicine written by international experts in this field. At the moment, there is no other book like this available.

“It is an up-to-date resource on what we know about homotoxicology today – what is evidence based and what hypotheses and issues are still open to be analyzed and solved,” states author Alta Smit, MD, General Manager of the International Academy of Homotoxicology (IAH), Germany.

The book begins with an overview of core concepts in homotoxicology, including information on the defense and regulation system of the human body. This section is then followed by a chapter on the development and evolution of illness. The book closes with material on the practical aspects of bioregulatory treatment, including the selection and availability of medications, indications, contraindications, and therapeutic strategies for a variety of common diseases.

Inside the book, a poster-sized version of the Disease Evolution Tablet (DET) provides medical professionals with a key tool for use in their daily practice and more than 80 high-quality illustrations as well as diagrams have been included to demonstrate key concepts. Practical information on treatment methods such as injection therapies and ointment dressings are also featured in the text.

Over the last five decades, homoxtoxicology has made its way into many practices and therapeutic applications. Medical students, physicians, natural health practitioners, and other healthcare professionals will acquire a great companion in this book as they seek to gain as well as expand their knowledge in this field.
