Paracelsus was a Swiss physician, alchemist, and astrologer of the German Renaissance. He was a pioneer in several aspects of the "medical revolution" of the Renaissance, emphasizing the value of observation in combination with received wisdom. He is credited as the "father of toxicology". He also had a substantial impact as a prophet or diviner, his "Prognostications" being studied by Rosicrucians in the 1700s. Hahnemman, who studied Paracelsus' writings, having disdain for chemical pharmacy, between the toxicity and the therapeutic action of a drug, and analysis of its 'provings' actually began the field of detoxification as we know it today. Hahnemann's drug development became to be known as homeopathy. A naturopathic precept is that 'a body that cannot detoxify, cannot heal!' The essentials of the biochemical basis of toxins are covered, including toxidromes; and the uncommonly recognized toxins - sugar, fat, and proteins - contributing to today's epidemical humoral disease - Syndrome X.
