The term homeostasis comes from the Greek and means equilibrium. Homeostasis is basically nothing more than the natural balance of an open system. In terms of healing science, it refers to the balance of the internal environment in the body. When the body is in harmony, one feels fit, healthy and full of energy. One could also say that homeostasis is the cornerstone of health and enables the body to self-regulate. All regulatory processes in the body have one goal, namely natural balance. Because only in this way can all functions, processes and the associated survival abilities be maintained.
But unfortunately, the balance in our body is also susceptible to disturbances. The consequences of this can be complaints of all kinds, such as fatigue, digestive problems, hair loss and even long-term illnesses. Often such complaints develop insidiously and over years. The goal should therefore be to support the body in its innate function so that the natural balance, or homeostasis, is maintained in the most diverse areas of the body. Because that is how we feel fit, healthy and efficient.

Every day, people are exposed to various influences that can disturb the natural balance in the body. Stress, negative thoughts and environmental influences can negatively affect the homeostasis in the body. Our lifestyle and diet play a large and important role in this. Factors such as an unbalanced diet, nicotine, excessive alcohol consumption, medications and little exercise can put a great strain on the body's natural balance.

According to Dr. Hans-Heinrich Reckeweg (1905-1985), substances that harm the body are also called homotoxins (homo = human, toxin = poison). Reckeweg is the inventor of the homotoxin theory, which describes that illness is a natural process by which the body tries to heal itself again. Symptoms up to illnesses should always be perceived as warning signals of the body.
According to Reckeweg, the human body is constantly striving to compensate for such negative influences and tries to remedy possible deficits or disturbing factors by all means.
This can go well for a long time, but at some point the body's resources are exhausted and a possible imbalance can make itself felt in the form of various complaints. It is important to follow up on these complaints and to support the body as much as possible where it urgently needs it.
In short, according to Reckeweg, illness is a way for the body to find its balance again as quickly as possible in order to achieve healthy homeostasis.
