Often, we are contacted by folks asking about the specific ingredients in our formula. Although we have all the ingredients of our product listed on the bottle, we believe most do not understand the philosophy of homeopathy. The developer, Dr. Todd Frisch, now has 35+ years of experience using homeopathics clinically.
SHAPE is preserved with a 20°C (Pharmco) grade alcohol. We have used homeopathy in liquid form for 35 years and certainly have worked with hundreds upon hundreds of recovering alcoholics. We recommend patients put the drops in a tiny bit of hot, hot (boiling if you want to be completely assured the alcohol burns off) water and wait until it cools down to take the drops. To date, we have never had a patient in recovery revert back to active alcoholism using liquid homeopathics, if they follow the guidelines above. We make the same recommendation for patients who are required to blow into a breathalyzer before driving.
Our unique formula was developed to support our entire pyramid of health and healing philosophy. Not only has our product proven itself to assist with stubborn weight loss, its greater benefit is in addressing the mother of all health struggles: inflammation. Life itself is inflammatory – the foods we eat, the air we breathe, the people we know, the thoughts we think and the fat we store!!! Just look around you, folks. We are a society who is inflamed to the max, with obesity off the charts and mostly because of the lifestyle choices we have made long-term.
Our program is about TOTAL HEALTH RESTORATION. We’ve said it before and we will continue saying…UNLESS YOU EMBRACE A HEALTHIER LIFESTYLE, we are just another program that will fail you. The choice is yours. We cannot force you to change. You’ve got to want it for yourself, want it so badly that you are willing to do what it takes to ReClaim your health. Do the work!
You can trust our decades of research and clinical experience behind the development of this product and program. You’ve put your trust in the practitioner you’ve chosen and we put our trust in all the practitioners who have partnered with us to make an impact in the health crisis of this nation.
Together, we all have a responsibility to make a difference and impact future generations. We can win this battle and each person who takes the time to really invest themselves in learning the truth will impact the lives of many others in their life who are willing to choose a healthier lifestyle. There are many pioneers in the “functional health mentality and movement” and if everyone truly listens to what we are all preaching, we will turn the tide on the future health of our society. What a legacy we can leave for our children, grandchildren, and beyond!
Boycott the food industry mongers who are producing toxic food products first and foremost. You vote with every dollar you spend at grocery stores. Spend your hard-earned money on whole food, food that has the ability to rot or spoil, food that God has provided for our nourishment, and you will reap the rewards of better health.
We are passionate about folks living their best life and choosing a lifestyle that supports that outcome. Wishing you all the best this program has to offer.
What is homeopathy?
Essentially: a holistic, natural, safe system of medicine; it stimulates the person’s own healing power; it’s practiced in countries all over the world; has no interactions with conventional drugs; is recognized by the FDA.
Homeopathy, or homeopathic medicine, is the practice of medicine that embraces a holistic, natural approach to the treatment of the sick. Homeopathy is holistic because it treats the person as a whole, rather than focusing on a diseased part or a labeled sickness. Homeopathy is natural because its remedies are produced according to the U.S. FDA-recognized Homeopathic Pharmacopoeia of the United States from natural sources, whether vegetable, mineral, or animal in nature. The word homeopathy, which comes from the Greek, through Latin into English, literally means “like disease”.
The first principle: Let Like Cure Like
The guiding principle of homeopathy is stated as “let like cure like,” similia similibus curentur. While the concept of “like curing like” dates back to the Greek Father of Medicine, Hippocrates (460-377 B.C.), it was German physician Dr. C. F. Samuel Hahnemann (1755-1843) who first codified this principle into a system of medicine. Starting with experiments (which he called “provings”), Dr. Hahnemann administered medicinal substances to himself and healthy volunteers (called “provers”). Symptoms that developed in the provers while taking a specific substance gave the homeopathic “picture” of, and indications for, that remedy. Over the years, by means of provings, toxicological data, and clinical experience, the homeopathic drug pictures of over 2000 substances have been derived. In the practice of homeopathic medicine, a detailed, comprehensive interview of the patient, called the homeopathic case-taking, is undertaken to reveal the physical, psychological and emotional characteristics and complaints of that individual. The homeopathic practitioner then finds the homeopathic remedy whose materia medica (drug picture) is the most similar to that of the patient’s characteristic totality. That homeopathic prescription (the similimum) is given to the patient to stimulate his/her being to heal: like cures like.The second principle: The Minimum Dose
The second principle of homeopathy is that of the minimum dose.
Dr. Hahnemann began using medicinal substances known to work in his day, such as Cinchona or Peruvian bark, for relapsing fever, in a homeopathic way. That means that he administered a medicament with a known remedy picture to a sick person who had a similar symptom picture. But, in the beginning, he was using crude substances, like full strength herbs. He observed that, while the patients got well, they also had side effects. To minimize those side effects, through further experimentation, he came upon the idea of potentization. Homeopathic medicines are prepared through a series of dilutions as indicated by the “6x, 12x, 30x” next to the remedy name. At each step there is a vigorous agitation of the solution called succussion, until there is no detectible crude substance left. As paradoxical as it may seem, the higher the dilution, when prepared in this dynamized way, the more potent the homeopathic remedy. The minimum dose therefore has the maximum therapeutic effect with the fewest side effects. In fact, Homeopathy has an enviable, centuries-old history of safety in use of its potentized oral medicines among patients of all ages, including babies, children, pregnant and nursing women, and senior citizens.
The third principle: The Single Remedy vs. Combination Remedies
The third principle of homeopathy is the single remedy. Many homeopathic practitioners prescribe one remedy at a time. The homeopathic remedy has been proved by itself, producing its own unique drug picture. That remedy is matched (prescribed) to the sick person having a similar picture. The results are observed, uncluttered by the confusion of effects that might be produced if more than one medicine were given at the same time.
The developer of SHAPE ReClaimed formulated his product out of 30 years of clinical experience using combination homeopathy as bio-regulatory medicine.
In the late 1920’s, a conventionally-trained German physician, Hans-Heinrich Reckeweg, M.D. (1905-1985), began researching and experimenting with homeopathic remedies. He was initially drawn to homeopathy while in medical school when a homeopath cured his father of serious kidney disease. He completed his medical degree and went to Berlin to study with masters of homeopathy.
Once he began treating patients with homeopathic remedies, Dr. Reckeweg noticed how quickly the patients required another remedy. This concerned him, since he was closely following the guidelines of well-experienced homeopaths. In his practice he observed that many human diseases seemed to be caused by exposure to toxins, of both external and internal nature. He termed this principle homotoxicology, i.e. the study of toxins in humans. The presence of such toxins was undeniable in view of the increasingly polluted environment and widespread damaging lifestyle choices.
By expanding this concept into a medical theory Dr. Reckeweg obtained better results with combinations of homeopathic remedies than with single remedies and took to developing formulas for his own patients. Consequently, other medical colleagues began requesting his combination formulas.
The number of requests escalated so rapidly that in 1936, Dr. Reckeweg founded a company to produce his medicines. He called the company Heel (an acronym of four Latin words: Herba est ex luce or ‘Plants come from light’). Heel grew to become the world’s leading producer and marketer of homeopathic combination products, with product distribution throughout the world.
Unfortunately, due to FDA demands that all Heel Combination Products meet HPUS regulations, Heel Germany decided they would not reformulate their products to suit US demands and completely pulled out of the United States. Dr. Todd Frisch continues to search for products to replace the homeopathics he used and trusted clinically for 33 years.
Homeopathic treatment: Acute and Chronic
There are two main categories of treatment in homeopathic medicine; i.e., acute and chronic. Acute treatment is for illness of recent onset; it may be self-limited (for example, the common cold), or it may progress if not treated (for example, pneumonia). In such an illness the body might overcome the illness, a cold for example, sooner or later, but the appropriate medicine gently stimulates the body to recover more quickly and efficiently. Chronic or constitutional treatment is the other main category of treatment. A chronic disease is long-standing or a recurrent health problem. The length of treatment and the challenge to achieve positive results is affected by many factors, including the nature of the problem, health history, family medical history, the previous treatment, and the person’s inherent constitutional strength or weakness. The goal is to help the person to return to a state of wellbeing through individualized homeopathic treatment.

Bach flower essences (remedies) form a part of alternative medicine. They comprise a therapeutic system that uses dilutions of flower essences developed by Dr.Edward Bach to balance physical and emotional disturbances. In the world of flowers, Dr. Bach found resonances of the conditions he found in his patients. He believed the right essence can help to bring the patient back to a positive, happy condition. Dr. Bach knew that the human being is more than a physical body. The human being incorporates a body of life energy, a body of sensitivity and feelings, and a spiritual body. Flower essences are energetic imprints of the life force of plants. Dr. Bach believed that the flower essences can help people with physical illness by addressing the emotional responses to their illness.
Bach flower essences (remedies) are similar to homeopathy in many respects. Bach flower essences are not dependent on the theory of successive dilutions, and are not based on homeopathy’s defining principle, the “Law of Similars” (“Like cures like”). Another difference between homeopathy and Bach flower remedies are the methods used to produce them. The production of Bach flower essences is handled in two ways, called “potentization”: the sun method and the boiling method, both invented by Dr. Bach.
There are 38 original Bach remedies plus “Rescue Remedy™” (a five flower combination), each prescribed for certain mental and emotional problems. They form a complete therapeutic system. Practitioners treat every variety of human emotional imbalance with the 38 Bach flower essences. Dr. Frisch has had excellent clinical success utilizing Bach remedies during his career.
