Homotoxicology is the study of the human reaction to toxins (both endo and exotoxins). Homotoxicology, sees disease as the result of the body's attempt to heal itself. Toxins are either created in the human organism or are exogenous, and all the symptoms of illness are the result of a defensive effort by the organism to eliminate toxins. In homotoxicology, virtually all symptoms of illness are regarded as a manifestation of the body's attempts to rid itself of homotoxins. In minor, self-limiting disorders, the body does this on its own. In more serious situations, treatment is needed.  Homotoxicology generally uses homeopathic formulations. Homotoxic treatment has been used in chronic diseases, inflammatory conditions, rheumatoid arthritis, allergies and food intolerances.

Our Homotoxicology Certificate Program will help you understand toxicology and how it leads to pathology. You will discover the pathways to disease and learn how to restore the body's ability to self-regulate.  Find out how to follow the chain of illness back to the cause.
