What is HEEL?
In 1936 Dr Hans-Heinrich Reckeweg founded the homeopathic pharmaceutical company Heel in Berlin. The name was formed from the initial letters of the words:
"Herba est ex luce" - "Plants derive their power from light."Reckeweg assumed that the healing process produced by his Heel homeopathics arose from the excretion of the actual causes of disease, the "homotoxins."
Nauturopthic practitioners consider the milieu, or matrix; the tissue surrounding the cells, as being of vital importance in getting to the source of disease. It consists of a fine mesh of connective tissue and contains tissue fluid. All cells are embedded in the matrix, like in a damp sponge. The homotoxins are deposited in the matrix and other structures
Homotoxins can clog the "pores" of the matrix and thus obstruct the exchange of substances and information. This action plays a role particularly in "lifestyle" diseases such as allergies, cardiovascular problems, and rheumatic disorders.
The active substances in modern Heel Preparations are combined in such a way that diseases recede as a result of the homotoxins being ejected from the matrix, thus moving the patient back in the direction of health.
In classical homeopathy, a single medication is prescribed based on the patient’s 'symptom picture' made up from the totality of their physical, mental and emotional symptoms. Heel presents a new approach.
What is so special about Heel remedies?
Heel's combination medications are made up of several different natural substances, mostly homeopathically prepared. These have been carefully identified and blended for their ability to stimulate various biological functions. They are then used in the same way that conventional medications are, to treat one particular condition like the common cold or dizziness. In other words the remedy is matched to a condition rather than to an individual's symptoms or constitution in the way that conventional homeopathic remedies are.
