In standard literature written on the Table of Homotoxicology, these stages of illnesses are represented in the following linear manner:

1------------> 2----------> 3----------> Biological Cut ---------> 4----------> 5 -----------> 6

•  Excretion phase: Excretion of toxins takes place via natural mechanisms such as urine, stool, or sweat.

•  Reaction phase: Visible excretion of toxins by secondary reaction mechanisms such as inflammation, fever, illnesses of the skin, abscesses, tonsil infections, or sinus infections.

•  Deposition phase: Toxins are deposited in locations that are unpleasant but not life-threatening, such as the joints (early arthritis, gout, rheumatism), kidney and gallbladder stones, or the arteries (arterosclerosis)

The Biological Cut occurs here: The above three stages represent reversible conditions with the appropriate biological therapy. Beyond this point, the successive stages are increasingly more difficult to treat and reverse because the diseases become firmly entrenched in the body.

•  Impregnation phase: Suppression of the reaction phase forces the body to deposit toxins into the weakest cells which are damaged in the process. Cellular respiration and enzymatic processes are also affected. Severe chronic illnesses begin to develop at this phase, such as angina pectoris, asthma, epilepsy, liver damage early symptoms of Multiple Sclerosis and ulcers.

•  Degeneration phase: As more toxins are deposited, damage to cellular respiration and enzymatic processes becomes even more severe. The cells degenerate further, and illnesses become even more pronounced, resulting in such conditions as severe chronic fatigue syndrome (CFS), cirrhosis of the liver, advanced Multiple Sclerosis, muscular dystrophy, and Parkinson's disease.

•  Neoplasm phase: Cellular damage is severe and cancer develops.

The degeneration that takes place in the body is considerable as the condition of the body gradually proceeds down the chart to the final stage. In this diagram, the vital importance of the Biological Cut becomes more evident. The Biological Cut represents the point where the fate of the patient is determined. If the patient passes beyond the Biological Cut, chronic illness cannot be reversed by the body's intrinsic abilities alone. Once the patient has passed this point a chronic condition is firmly established. Indeed we can use the words firmly entrenched. Permanently reversing the chronic illness becomes impossible for the body without natural modalities.

This Table of Homotoxicosis enables us to better understand what the chronically ill body faces in its attempt to heal itself. A chronically ill individual is analogous to a mountain climber who is totally exhausted after climbing to the Peak of Mount Everest , represented by the Biological Cutin this Table. The goal is to return to base camp (healthy homeostasis) and not slip down the opposite dangerous slope, represented by phases 4 and 5, or even eventually into phase 6. If the body descends into phase 4 or 5, it requires tremendous resources of energy to climb back over the top of Mt. Everest and return to phase 1. This “push” back to health is attainable in the form of the highly energetic PEKANA homeopathic-spagyric remedies.

As many practitioners understand, treating conditions at phases 1, 2 and 3 can be successful using a wide variety of modalities, including acupuncture, herbs, enzymes and standard homeopathic remedies. In phases 1, 2 and 3, PEKANA homeopathic-spagyric medications provide an important advantage in that they treat these conditions quite rapidly with their homeopathic and spagyric components, and also eliminate the underlying toxic burden. This cleansing process is extremely important because it helps remove the foundation for development of chronic illnesses. However, PEKANA remedies truly show their full superior healing potential in phase 3, where people already are difficult to heal, and certainly in phases 4 and 5. Therefore, to stop further degeneration, restore homeostasis and excrete the debilitating toxic burden in the connective tissue matrix, PEKANA makes effective medications for all of the toughest, most chronic cases.

Dr. Reckeweg emphasized that the degeneration and illness process is not a one-way street. Just as healthy patients can become chronically ill, chronically ill people can once again become healthy. He showed that chronic illnesses, such as sinus or tonsil infections, could be reversed with proper biological treatment that includes acute excretions. When given the correct biological therapy, the body excretes large quantities of toxins stored in the cells and tissues via various excretion mechanisms and thereby gradually returns to health. PEKANA medications, in conjunction with integrated therapies, can help resolve chronic conditions and return severely ill people back to health.
