Dr. Reckeweg & Co



Our company’s history starts with Heinrich Reckeweg (1877-1944). After his education as a teacher he started teaching at an
elementary school in Herford in 1903. The following years were characterized by teaching at the public school, by severe illness, the world war and by his premature pension. In 1912, he was that seriously ill, that physicians declared him suitable for “garrison-fit” only when World War I started. In 1919, he suffered from a chronic kidney inflammation, in November 1924 the consequences of tuberculosis and a disorder in his throat lead to his premature pension. So it does not really come as a surprise that Heinrich Reckeweg, suffering from such severe illness in the early Twenties and the failure of orthodox medicine becoming obvious, attended to natural medicine more and more.

All along interested in botanical medicine and other natural healing practices and familiar with the teachings of Hahnemann and Prießnitz, Heinrich Reckeweg had become self-taught alternative practitioner. During his days as a teacher he already felt committed to treating many of his pupils suffering from for example a cough or a cold. He even created a cough syrup for this purpose.He named his preparation against whooping cough “Jutussin Stickhustenhilfe” – and to this day “Jutussin R8”, distributed worldwide, enjoyed high appreciation. In addition to Hahnemann and Prießnitz he was particularly interested in Pastor Felke and his methods.

The acquaintance with Felke was the mental starting point of the Dr. Reckeweg & Co GmbH product series, the company was founded in 1947. Felke had discovered that – for diseases and medical conditions always taking the same course time and again – the choice fell on the same classical homeopathic remedies. He conducted tests to mix those remedies individually for each patient thus reaching the conclusion that for certain disease patterns again and again the same combinations of homeopathic remedies showed good effects. This was the hour of founding of the homeopathic combination drugs, back then called complexes.
