Exclusively breastfed infants can have food allergies.Cow's milk, egg, wheat and peanut allergens have all been detected in human breast milk. Once baby consumes these systemic and inflammatory allergens, infants can get a common skin condition called atopic dermatitis or eczema

Find out what you should look for in your baby.

Citric Acid Cycle Catalysts in Greater Detail

The contribution of homotoxicology to the progress of medicine has been pivotal because it links homeopathic concepts and laws to modern scientific knowledge. Dr. Reckeweg’s starting point was the study of homeopathic materia medica, but he enriched and added to it in various ways and on various levels.

Therapeutic approaches

"An original and essential contribution resulted from the great attention paid to the study of the cell, which Reckeweg defined as the primary and fundamental element in which disease originates.

An energy deficiency in the cell causes it to dysfunction, and an individual cell dysfunction is the start of a more complex pathology, which inevitably becomes an organic disorder.

When it enters a crisis, the cellular energy plant (i.e., the mitochondrion) begins to lack energy for any biochemical cellular process; in particular, the proteins, enzymes, and cytokines which are fundamental to the life of a specialized cell are not synthesized.

A cell that is lacking energy reduces its function to a minimum, uses large quantities of glucose via a metabolic route that does not require oxygen, pollutes the surrounding connective tissue, and progressively assumes the characteristics of a neoplastic cell.

This whole sequence of events which leads from normal physiology to dysfunction, to degeneration, and eventually to neoplasia, is initiated in the mitochondrion and, more specifically, in that sequence of oxidative reactions involved in pyruvic acid catabolism and ATP production.

It is clear how important it is to keep this sequence of key biochemical reactions as efficient as possible for both the catabolic and anabolic aspects of cell function. 

Patients with chronic degenerative diseases, which are those we encounter most frequently today in our natural medicine clinics, primarily need specific, selective stimulation of the citric acid cycle. Treatment with intermediary catalysts in a dilute, dynamized form offers an exceptional therapeutic opportunity in this domain.

The patient is assessed and, if this shows that he is in one of the cellular phases of the homotoxicology table, total stimulation of the citric acid cycle must be carried out, either by the administration of Coenzyme compositum or the individual catalysts if they are available.

If we consider that the organism often uses the building blocks of the citric acid cycle via many other metabolic pathways, it is clear that deficiencies of substances at various levels will tend to block the cycle once again. It is therefore useful to start therapy to support the citric acid cycle with Coenzyme compositum, at the rate of one ampoule sublingually or by injection 1 to 3 times weekly.

Children, in whom the citric acid cycle has presumably not reached a block as in adults or in chronically ill patients, can obviously start directly with the catalysts providing energy and a reactive stimulus to the organism. Although this is the best general strategy for using the citric acid cycle catalysts, it is also useful to be familiar with the role and consequently the clinical indications of the individual catalysts."


This is what I teach and practice. Pairing I.V. Ozone MAH with these German Biologics. We rebuild the immune system and repair damaged mitochondria to reverse chronic disease patterns.

Chronic Fatigue and Chemical Sensitivities

Chronic Fatigue Syndrome (CFS) is associated with a positive Epstein-Barr titer and tender lymph nodes suggesting some infectious influence. Some researches question whether EBV causes CFS or is it opportunistic. in CFS, fatigue and cognitive problems are the overwhelming complaints. Multiple Chemical sensitivities (MCS) is a controversial diagnosis unless you are the patient who has it.  Many in the medical community consider MCS symptoms to be a physical manifestation of a psychiatric illness rather than a primary medical illness.  There is belief that the Vagus nerve is responsible for these illnesses. What does the Vagus Nerve do? it basically keeps you alive. It controls your heartbeat your digestive track, and most importantly it controls your immune system.  However; treating the Vagus nerve is far too risky and no one will for Chronic Fatigue or Chemical Sensitivities. The next best thing is to get a doctor who believes in your symptoms and will put the time and energy into treating you.

Mast Cell Activation Syndrome - How To Put the Fire Out

Many patients with chronic Lyme or other inflammatory autoimmune conditions have Mast Cell Activation Syndrome or MCAS. Many environmental insults contribute to MCAS and serve as triggers for lighting the fire within. Mast cells become activated and rupture releasing histamines into tissues and the bloodstream. This in turn creates inflammation in the body and abnormal immune responses. In order to address the other headlined condition - Lyme, inflammatory arthritis, Hashimoto's, sarcoidosis and such the fire must be put out first.
