The American Society of BioRegulatory Medicine (ASBMR) is a scientific society formed to support education in bioregulatory medicine. We believe that a new model of healthcare information and education based on an individualized, whole-systems approach is emerging. Through collaborative efforts with the International Society of Bioregulatory Medicine we provide educational opportunities in a variety of topics, ranging from primary care to veterinary medicine. Aligned with the efforts of the International Society of Homotoxicolgoy and Homeopathy (ISOHH), we work to advance the foundations of homotoxicolgy, homeopathy, and bioregulatory therapies, while recognizing that all treatment must be patient centered and individualized, rather than disease centered.
Homeopathy is a system of medicine using unique and dilute preparations of substances based on several primary therapeutic principles. The first is the Similia Principle that implies that substances capable of causing disorder in healthy subjects can be used as medicines to treat similar illnesses in patients. Another is the use of a minimum dose. The doses used in homeopathy range from those that are similar in concentration to some conventional medicines to very high dilutions containing no material trace of the starting substance – the latter are often called ‘ultra-molecular’ dilutions. There are several distinct types of homeopathy including ‘individualized’ homeopathy, ‘clinical’ homeopathy, and isopathy. In individualized homeopathy, as originally defined by Hahnemann a single homeopathic medicine is selected on the basis of the total symptom picture of a patient. In clinical homeopathy, one or more homeopathic medicines may be administered for standard clinical diagnoses. In isopathy a homeopathic preparation of the substance or substances causing an illness may be used to treat a patient with that illness.
Homotoxicology is a therapeutic modality within integrative medicine. In this system using homeopathic medicines, a medical diagnosis combined with an individualized assessment of the patient and the complexity of their symptoms and illness. This bio-regulatory approach takes into account the exogenous and endogenous influences on the patient’s homeostatic mechanisms. Treatment is given, predominantly using homeopathically-prepared medicines, to support the inherent self-regulatory ability of the patient by means of detoxification and drainage, immunomodulation, functional organ support and support of the cellular metabolism. It can be integrated with other conventional and integrative medicine treatments.
