All high quality products distributed by Bio Lonreco are manufactured according to “GMP” regulation and have been licensed by Health Canada. Bio Lonreco is an active member of the Canadian Homeopathic Pharmaceutical Association (CHPA); one of the main objectives of this association is to represent its members’ interests at the federal level in relation to the legislation affecting homeopathic medicines so that homeopathy becomes an integral component in Canadian health care.
Dr. Reckeweg was founded by Heinrich Reckeweg himself. Motivated by his own illness and failures of orthodox medicine , Heinrich pursued natural medicine and developed a growing interest in botanical medicine and other natural healing practices such as homeopathy. In pursuit of his vision of natural medicine, Heinrich registered his doctor’s office with the public health institution on a commercial basis in May 1926 after he had started in the early twenties to develop, manufacture and sell homeopathic combination remedies in his laboratory. His remarkable curing successes brought immense credit and everybody respectfully called him “Doctor” Reckeweg. After his passing in 1944, the company was re-established by two of his sons , Klaus Gunther Reckeweg and the homeopathic physician Dr. Alfred Reckeweg. Michael Reckeweg entered the company in 1976 and in 1981 the family business had grown to become a pharmaceutical company. Moving forward the main interest of the company was to open markets abroad and thus establish business contact with importers in European and non-European countries. Dr. Reckeweg specializes in homeopathic remedies available in various forms such as dilutions, injectables, globules, tablets, ointments and syrups.
At Dr. Reckeweg, research goes beyond product improvement and new product development. For the past 25 years the company is one of the very few that has been active in the basic research of homeopathy. From raw materials to finished supplements, all remedies undergo quality control in the laboratory. Chemical, physico-chemical, microbiological and pharmacognostic analyses are part of routine quality control of the starting materials. This includes testing of purity, identity and content as well as the determination of physical parameters. The high quality standards manufactured by Dr. Reckeweg is due to a manufacturing process based on the Homeopathic Pharmacopoeia (HAB), the German Pharmacopeia and the European Pharmacopeia and follows all national and international production guidelines.
