Prestigious Association of Integrative Medicine Doctors Recognizes Heel’s Contributions

Albuquerque, N.M., Nov. 13, 2009 — Heel USA, the makers of Traumeel, was honored by the American College for the Advancement in Medicine,, meeting in Las Vegas at their annual meeting.

ACAM is the leading Integrative Medicine organization for MD, DO, ND and licensed health-care providers. “ACAM is proud to present Heel with our Corporate Vision Award. As long-time supporters of both ACAM and the integrative medicine industry, Heel USA has consistently demonstrated a willingness to offer support for our work,” said Jeanne Drisko MD, president of ACAM.

Thierry Montfort, president and CEO of Heel USA, accepted the award noting, “We are especially sensitive to this award because we strongly believe that what makes our company unique is precisely its vision, our guiding star, which is to build the bridge between homeopathy and conventional medicine.” He went on to explain, “as a medical company Heel was created by a doctor for doctors. Dr. Hans-Heinrich Reckeweg, who founded the company in 1936, started his medical career as a conventional medical doctor and then became a homeopathic physician; but he wanted to go beyond the 200-year-old ‘Law of Similars’ and apply it without dogmatism to modern medical science. That is when he developed the science known as homotoxicology–the study of the effects of toxins on the human body.”

As a result of this science nearly 300 combination homeopathics are made by Heel including doctor recommended Traumeel, which is a safe and effective natural medicine for muscular pain, inflammation, sports injuries and bruising.

In addition to Montfort’s presence to receive the award, Heel USA sponsored Leila Zackrison, MD, who presented the cutting-edge topic Lyme Disease Against All Odds, which addressed using conventional and alternative protocols to treat this prevalent and often misdiagnosed disease.

The Corporate Vision Award recognizes corporations who contribute to and excel in the industry. Heel USA is the United States subsidiary of Heel GmbH, one of the world’s largest homeopathic pharmaceutical manufacturers with distribution in over 50 countries.  For more information on Heel USA and its products please visit
