A landmark paper on homeopathy and cancer has appeared in the February 2010 issue of the International Journal of Oncology. Scientists at the University of Texas M.D. Anderson Cancer Center (MDA), led by Moshe Frenkel, MD, have confirmed the ability of four homeopathic remedies to induce apoptosis (programmed cell death) in breast cancer cell lines in the laboratory. The scientists in question were from the Integrative Medicine Program, the Department of Molecular Pathology, and the Department of Melanoma Medical Oncology of MDA. Their two Indian collaborators were from the Banerji Homeopathic Research Foundation, Kolkata, India, where these same remedies are employed clinically with apparent success. The four ultra-dilute remedies in question were Carcinosin, Phytolacca, Conium and Thuja.

"The remedies exerted preferential cytotoxic effects against the two breast cancer cell lines, causing cell cycle delay/arrest and apoptosis" the authors wrote.

It was particularly interesting that the cell-killing effects of two of the remedies investigated in this study, Carcinosin and Phytolacca, appeared similar to the activity of paclitaxel (Taxol), the most commonly used chemotherapeutic drug for breast cancer, when it was tested in the same two adenocarcinoma cell lines investigated in this study.

Phytolacca is better known as pokeweed root, which grows as a towering weed in the US and elsewhere. Conium maculatum is poison hemlock, while Thuja occidentalis comes from the Eastern Arborvitae tree. Carcinosin is the only non-botanical in the group. It is made from a highly diluted extract of breast cancer tissue. These are typically used at the Banerjis’ clinic in India to treat breast cancer. The use of poisonous plants to treat cancer, while unusual, is not necessarily controversial. Madagascar periwinkle, for instance, yields the familiar vinca alkaloids–vincristine and vinblastine. The aforementioned paclitaxel (Taxol) is derived from the bark of the Pacific Yew tree.

Even the use of a cancer tissue extract might be explained in immunological terms. No, what makes these remedies highly unusual is the degree to which they have been diluted. These are given in the Frenkel article as follows: Carcinosin, 30C; Conium maculatum, 3C; Phytolacca decandra, 200C and Thuja occidentalis, 30C.

ABSTRACT:

Homeopathy is a complementary and integrative medicine used in depression, The aim of this study is to investigate the non-inferiority and tolerability of individualized homeopathic medicines [Quinquagintamillesmial (Q-potencies)] in acute depression, using fluoxetine as active control. Ninety-one outpatients with moderate to severe depression were assigned to receive an individualized homeopathic medicine or fluoxetine 20 mg day–1 (up to 40 mg day–1) in a prospective, randomized, double-blind double-dummy 8-week, single-center trial. Primary efficacy measure was the analysis of the mean change in the Montgomery & Åsberg Depression Rating Scale (MADRS) depression scores, using a non-inferiority test with margin of 1.45. Secondary efficacy outcomes were response and remission rates. Tolerability was assessed with the side effect rating scale of the Scandinavian Society of Psychopharmacology. Mean MADRS scores differences were not significant at the 4th (P = 0.654) and 8th weeks (P = 0.965) of treatment. Non-inferiority of homeopathy was indicated because the upper limit of the confidence interval (CI) for mean difference in MADRS change was less than the non-inferiority margin: mean differences (homeopathy–fluoxetine) were –3.04 (95% CI –6.95, 0.86) and –2.4 (95% CI –6.05, 0.77) at 4th and 8th week, respectively. There were no significant differences between the percentages of response or remission rates in both groups. Tolerability: there were no significant differences between the side effects rates, although a higher percentage of patients treated with fluoxetine reported troublesome side effects and there was a trend toward greater treatment interruption for adverse effects in the fluoxetine group. This study illustrates the feasibility of randomized controlled double-blind trials of homeopathy in depression and indicates the non-inferiority of individualized homeopathic Q-potencies as compared to fluoxetine in acute treatment of outpatients with moderate to severe depression.

Breast Cancer: Homeopathic Remedies Effective and Non-toxic

Posted by Dr.Mukhtar Ahmad on February 15, 2010


beat-breast-cancer

A recent study just published in the International Journal of Oncology reveals that homeopathic remedies have a similar action to chemotherapy but none of their toxicity.

Dr Moshe Frenkel, the lead researcher for this study said, "We felt that homeopathy needed to be tested in the same way that we test new chemotherapeutic drugs. We were quite impressed to find that homeopathic remedies have similar effects to chemotherapy on breast cancer cells but without affecting normal cells, a very exciting finding."  

The homeopathic remedies tested included: Carcinosin; Conium maculatum; Phytolacca decandra; and Thuja occidentalis.

The researchers concluded, "the ultra-diluted natural homeopathic remedies investigated in this study offer the promise of being effective preventive and/or therapeutic agents for breast cancer and worthy of further study."

  1. 1902 P.Jousset investigated the effects of silver nitrate up to 25c on mycelium. He found significant results in their weights, finding that the silver nitrate stunted growth. (reported by Gabriel Bertrand) “The Extraordinary Sensitiveness of Aspergillus Niger to Manganese.” Comptes Rendus Academie des Science; 154, 616, 1912
  2. 1906 Boericke and Tafel made an unusual observation of the emanations from a high dilute of radium bromide (30c), to photograph a picture of the outline of a key. (Tafel’s Jottings, 1906.)
  3. 1928 JUNKER, Hermann The Effect of Extreme DIlutions on Microorganisms Phluger’s Archiv fur die Gesamte Physiologie, 219, pp 647-672, 1928

  5. 1923 N.P. Krawkow- Demonstrated 15c histamine increased the blood flow in isolated rabbit ears 25% and using 12c microdoses of adrenaline, strychnine, histamine and quinine was able to affect the change of pigmentation in the isolated skins of frogs. Controls were used. “Beyond the Boundary of Sensibility of Living Protoplasm” Zeitschrift fur die Gesamte Experimntalle Medizin, 34 pp.279-306
  6. 1925 G. Stearns & M. Stark reported the action of microdilutes on fruit fly tumors. In this fascinating study we see that microdilutes actually altered the genetics of their subjects. A genetically determined tendency to tumor formation ceased to exist after the administration of a microdilution of the tumor itself (isopathy). Controls were used. Other microdilutes were used to no effect. “Experiments with Homeopathic Potentized Substances Given to Dropsophilia Melanogaster with Hereditary Tumors”, The Homeopathic Recorder, 40.
  7. 1925 G. Stearns tested microdilutions of salt on guinea pigs and demonstrated adverse affects from 30c to 1000c sodium chloride. He noted loss of appetite, aversion for bread, loss of weight, their young poorly nourished and scrawny, less active, indifferent, hair less glossy, rough, untidy, eyes watery, lack luster. And homeopaths brag that their “remedies” (which are actually legal drugs) can do no harm! There were 16 female control animals, and they all became pregnant, whereas only 31% of the 48 female experimental animals became pregnant. At the end of five months over half, 55% of the experimental animals were dead compared to only 35% of the control animals “Experimental Data on One of the Fundamental Claims in Homeopathy”, The Journal of the American Institute of Homeopathy, 18.
  8. 1927 Karl Konig used microdilutes to experiment on frogs and fungi. He discovered that by using dilutions of of lead and silver nitrate ranging from 1 to 15c he could cause a premature metamorphosis in Rana fusca (common frog tadpoles) or kill them or the fungus in the water. Once again here we see that homeopathic drugs can have negative organic affects. Controls were used and the sinusoidal curve that we see in many experiments of diverse measures is first noted here. “On the Effect of Extremely Diluted (”Homeopathic”) Metal Salt Solutions on the Development and Growth of Tadpoles. Zeitschrift fur die Gesamte Experimentalle Medizin, 34, pp. 279-306
  9. 1929 Vladimir Vondracek repeated Konig’s work, and instead of lead and silver nitrate used gold chloride and a different species of frog. At 12c he also reported a significant increase in the mortality of tadpoles, and also obtained a repetition of the sinusoidal curve. “The Mortality of Tadpoles in Ultra Solutions” Zeitschrift fur die Gesamte Experimentelle Medizin. 66 pp. 533-538

Dilution made molecules cluster five to 10 times bigger than those in the original solutions. Growth was not linear, and depended on the original concentration. Geckeler and Samal found that the more dilute the solution inthebeginning, the larger the aggregates become, and only worked in polar solvents like water, in which one end of the molecule has a pronounced positive charge while the other end is negative.

  1. Variation in Fourier transform infrared spectra of some homeopathic potencies and their diluent media. Department of Zoology, Visva-Bharati University, Santiniketan, West Bengal, India. OBJECTIVE: The aim of this study was to determine whether potentized homeopathic drugs and their diluent media differ from each other with respect to their Fourier transform infrared (FTIR) spectra.
  2. DESIGN: FTIR spectra of Nux vomica 30C, Lycopodium 30C, Santonin 30C, Cina 30C, Cina 206C, Cina 1006C, and their diluent media 90% ethanol and Ethanol 30C were obtained in the wave number range of 2000-1000 cm1 at 20 degrees C. Potassium bromide powder soaked with the potencies, pressed into pellets, and air dried were used to measure the spectra. Because water structures in homeopathic potencies are thought to carry specific information on drug molecules and because O-H bending vibrational band (v2) exclusively belongs to water, the study was restricted to the bands in that wave number region. Alcohol has no absorption in the O-H bending region. RESULTS: The potencies were found to differ from each other and their diluent media in the number of v2 bands, their wave number (cm1), shape, and half-width (cm1) of the bands.

Jimenez, Margarita, Stephen Gloyd, "Treatment of Acute Childhood Diarrhea with Homeopathic Medicine: A Randomized Clinical Trial in Nicaragua," Pediatrics, May 1994, 93,5:719-25. This randomized double-blind study involving 81 children was conducted in Nicaragua in cooperation with the University of Washington and the University of Guadalajara. The results showed that, the individualized homeopathic medicine showed clinically and statistically significant improvement in the children’s diarrhea, compared to the children treated with placebo. Children that received homeopathic medicine recovered from infection 20% faster than the children treated with placebo. The children who were more sick reacted to the homeopathic treatment in a spectacular manner. In total the study used 18 different homeopathic medicines selected on an individualized basis according to the symptoms of each child.
  1. The effectiveness of homeopathic treatment was proved is diabetic retinitis. (Zicari, et al., "Valutazione dell’azione Angioprotettiva di Preparati di Arnica nel Trattamento della Retinpatia Diabetica," Bolletino de Oculistica, 1992, 5:841-848).
  1. White mice were exposed to X radiation with a power of 100 to 200 rad (non lethal dosage) and were then evaluated after 24, 48 and 72 hours. Ginseng 6X, 30CH and 200CH and Ruta graveolans 30CH and 200CH were given before and after the radiation. In comparison to mice who received placebo, those who were administered with homeopathic medicines presented significantly less damage in cells and chromosomes. (A.R. Khuda-Bukhsh, S. Banik, "Assessment of Cytogenetic Damage in X-irradiated Mice and its Alteration by Oral Administration of Potentized Homeopathic Drug, Ginseng D200," Berlin Journal of Research in Homeopathy, 1991, 1,4/5:254.

Maity, S., "Alteration of Cytogenetic Effects by Oral Administration of Potentized Homeopathic Drug, Ruta graveolens in Mice Exposed to Sub-lethal X-radiation," Berlin Journal of Research in Homeopathy, 1991, 1, 4/5:264).
  1. In a study conducted in the Moscow People’s Friendship University, the electric activity of the muscular wall of the stomach and duodenum was studied after the effect of the homeopathic medicine Nux Vomica (A. Zavadskaya, K. Privalova, S. Pasin, G. Loukas, Department of Homeopathy).
  1. In an experiment using cats the effect of the medicine Nux Vomica 30CH was studied after applying it to the region of electrodes in the cardia of the stomach, the body, the pylorus and the duodenal bulb. After the application of the medicine, the muscular activity in the body increased by 3.2 times, 2.1 times in the pylorus, while in the duodenal bulb it was reduced by 2.2 times. The experiment proved the ability of the homeopathic medicine Nux Vomica to have an effect on the function of the stomach. The results of this experiment agree with the results of the homeopathy experimental proof for this medicine.
  1. In another research conducted in the same university, the endurance of mice under hypoxia conditions due to the administration of the homeopathic medicine Hydrogenium Peroxydatum 30CH was studied (A. Chochlov, A. Zavadskaya, Ch. Efstathiou, G. Loukas, Department of Homeopathy). Two groups of mice were used, one of which received homeopathic medicine and the other placebo. Mice who received placebo were the healthier ones while mice that received the homeopathic medicine were the weaker ones. An experimental model was used, where the two groups were placed under high altitude conditions. Mice that received the homeopathic medicine showed faster and better adaptation to hypoxia conditions. Furthermore, when they returned to normal conditions, they reverted to their normal state more quickly and had longer life duration than the mice of the other group.
  1. In another research conducted in the same university, the effect of the homeopathic medicine Berberis vulgaris on the lymphatic drainage was studied (A. Zavadskaya et al.). Plant tincture and homeopathic medicines in the 3rd, 6th and 30th potency were given to mice. Initially the time of drainage of the coloring substance from the intestine to the mesentery was measured before providing any medicine. Then the various medicines were tested and the drainage time was measured. The study of the results showed that the potentized forms of Berberis vulgaris increase the lymphatic drainage while the corresponding plant tincture contains it. Especially the 3rd and 6th potencies increased the drainage more in the intestine than in the mesentery while the 30th increased it to the same degree in both the intestine and the mesentery.

“INSTRUMENTAL MEASURING OF DIFFERENT HOMEOPATHIC DILUTIONS OF POTASSIUM IODIDE IN WATER” Igor Jerman, M.D., Sc.D., Full Professor of Theoretical Biology, Maja Berden, M.A. Biology, Metod Škarja, M.A. Physics, BION, Institute for Bioelectromagnetics and New Biology,Celovška 264, 1000 LJUBLJANA, Slovenia (Received October 10,1998; Accepted with revisions March 10, 1999) Although more than 200 years have elapsed since the beginning of homeopathy and in spite of numerous confirmatory scientific experiments, the so-called memory of water is still a highly disputable and controversial theme in scientific circles. To make a contribution to solving this riddle, our research group tried to examine memory properties of water by the method of differential corona discharge Kirlian electrophotography of water-drop pairs. The method is based on a modified form of Kirlian photography with a subsequent thorough computer picture analysis. The potassium iodide (KI) mother solution (0.1M) was diluted in the standard way (without potentisation) or with potentisation (succussion by hand – by striking the vial 60 times against a large book as used traditionally) to 10-3M, 10-6M, 10-10M, 10-16M, 10-17M and 10-24M KI solutions. In the electrophotography method a drop of KI solution was compared with a drop of control water. To get a dependable system of results we compared homeopathic dilutions with ordinary distilled water, sham-potentised distilled water and non-potentised (standard) solutions. The results were analyzed by the Chi-square Goodness-of-fit test and the Sign test. They showed repeatable and statistically significant effects of concentration of KI dilutions as well as potentisation on the corona discharge process (from p < 0.05 to p < 0.001). This indicates that there is some physical basis of molecular (ionic) information imprinted into water.

Physica A: Statistical Mechanics and its Applications
Volume 323, 15 May 2003, Pages 67-74 Ultra-high dilutions of lithium chloride and sodium chloride (10-30 gcm-3) have been irradiated by X- and ?-rays at 77 K, then progressively rewarmed to room temperature. During that phase, their thermoluminescence has been studied and it was found that, despite their dilution beyond the Avogadro number, the emitted light was specific of the original salts dissolved initially.

Karen Nieber, a professor of pharmacology at the University of Leipzig, merely wanted to prove that homeopathy doesn’t work. She put a rat’s intestine in a fluid culture medium and used organic threads to fix it to a sensor so that she could measure any shortening of the intestine caused by cramps. Then she added a stimulant (atropine) to the fluid culture medium to produce severe cramps in the rat’s intestine. The intestine shrank and the scales showed a strong traction. When she then added belladonna X 90 to the culture medium, the intestine relaxed and the scales showed less traction. This proved that homeopathy is effective in the absence of any material substances – and in 2003 she won the Hans Heinrich Reckeweg award

Korean scientists prove homeopathy Benveniste’s dilutions went way beyond the level investigated by the Korean chemists Samal and Geckeler. The highest dilutions could have contained nothing but water molecules. Yet, these gave effects just as if the drug molecules were still present. The water appears to remember the original molecules dissolved in it.

Rustum Roy This paper does not deal in any way with, and has no bearing whatsoever on, the clinical efficacy of any homeopathic remedy. However, it does definitively demolish the objection against homeopathy, when such is based on the wholly incorrect claim that since there is no difference in composition between a remedy and the pure water used, there can be no differences at all between them. We show the untenability of this claim against the central paradigm of materials science that it is structure (not composition) that (largely) controls properties, and structures can easily be changed in inorganic phases without any change of composition. The burden of proof on critics of homeopathy is to establish that the structure of the processed remedy is not different from the original solvent.

A special issue of the journal Homeopathy, journal of the Faculty of Homeopathy and published by Elsevier, on the Memory of Water brings together scientists from around the world for the first time to publish new data, reviews and discuss recent scientific work exploring the idea that water can display memory effects. The concept of memory of water is important to homeopathy because it offers a potential explanation of the mechanism of action of very high dilutions often used in homeopathy.

Chemists in Korea have discovered Benveniste’s dilutions went way beyond the level investigated by the Korean chemists Samal and Geckeler. The highest dilutions could have contained nothing but water molecules. Yet, these gave effects just as if the drug molecules were still present. The water appears to remember the original molecules dissolved in it.

Martin Chapman website on water structure references 1,200+ primarily peer-review articles. Chaplin is an objective observer of water structure and homeopathy, and his summary of the research is that homeopathic solutions are clearly not the same thing as plain water.

Homeopathic Individualized Q-potencies versus Fluoxetine for Moderate to Severe Depression: Double-blind, Randomized Non-inferiority Trial

Homeopathic Individualized Q-potencies versus Fluoxetine for
Moderate to Severe Depression: Double-blind, Randomized
Non-inferiority Trial

Homeopathy is a complementary and integrative medicine used in depression, The aim of this study is to investigate the non-inferiority and tolerability of individualized homeopathic medicines [Quinquagintamillesmial (Q-potencies)] in acute depression, using fluoxetine as active control. Ninety-one outpatients with moderate to severe depression were assigned to receive an individualized homeopathic medicine or fluoxetine 20mg day–1(up to 40mg day–1) in a pro-
spective, randomized, double-blind double-dummy 8-week, single-center trial. Primary efficacy measure was the analysis of the mean change in the Montgomery & Asberg Depression Rating  Scale (MADRS) depression scores, using a non-inferiority test with margin of 1.45. Secondary  efficacy outcomes were response and remission rates. Tolerability was assessed with the side
effect rating scale of the Scandinavian Society of Psychopharmacology. Mean MADRS scores  differences were not significant at the 4th (P¼0.654) and 8th weeks (P¼0.965) of treatment.  Non-inferiority of homeopathy was indicated because the upper limit of the confidence interval (CI) for mean difference in MADRS change was less than the non-inferiority margin: mean differences (homeopathy–fluoxetine) were 3.04 (95% CI 6.95, 0.86) and 2.4 (95% CI 6.05, 0.77) at 4th and 8th week, respectively. There were no significant differences between the percentages of response or remission rates in both groups. Tolerability: there were no significant differences between the side effects rates, although a higher percentage of patients treated with fluoxetine reported troublesome side effects and there was a trend toward greater
treatment interruption for adverse effects in the fluoxetine group. This study illustrates the feasibility of randomized controlled double-blind trials of homeopathy in depression and indicates the non-inferiority of individualized homeopathic Q-potencies as compared to fluoxetine in acute treatment of outpatients with moderate to severe depression.

Research Supporting Homeopathy

The first double-blind crossover study ever performed was conducted by homeopaths in 1906. This study was run concurrently in eleven different cities on fifteen subjects. The documentation of this experiment consisted of 665 pages, published as Research Provings of Belladonna. Also at the turn of the nineteenth century, a book on homeopathic research was published called The Logic of Figures or Comparative Results of Homeopathic and Other Treatments. This book provided dozens of charts comparing disease and death rates in homeopathic and allopathic (mainstream) hospitals. This research also investigated statistics on the epidemic diseases of scarlet fever, yellow fever, and typhoid. The research showed that homeopathic hospitals had an average of 50 to 80 percent fewer deaths per 100 people, depending on the disease compared.
During World War II, an early double-blind study of homeopathy was sponsored by the British government. The experiment demonstrated that those given homeopathic remedies experienced a significant improvement in burns from mustard gas compared to those given placebo.
Many modern clinical trials are currently underway, looking for evidence of the efficacy of homeopathy from controlled trials in human subjects. More than 100 clinical trials have been conducted, some published in highly prestigious journals such as Lancet and JAMA. In 1997, K. Linde and W. Jonas, directors of the Alternative Medicine Evaluation Department of the National Institute of Health, co-signed a meta-analysis which evaluated 186 clinical trials on homeopathic therapies. Among the 105 trials whose results could be interpreted, 81 presented positive results, while homeopathy did not have a positive effect in 24 others. The authors concluded that, "the results of this meta-analysis are incompatible with the hypothesis that the clinical effects of homeopathy are due exclusively to a placebo effect."

Proliferation of interest in the area of clinical research abounds. In April 2003, a two-day conference was held in London on the topic of clinical research. Dick Koster  reports: "Those who are opposed to homeopathy…base their conclusion on the last negative study…. Followers of homeopathy herald all positive news and complain about serious design flaws in negative studies…. Both sides claim their successes and failures as definitive while in reality, new research…would only add or subtract a small effect to or from the already existing evidence…of homeopathy being true." This being said, Koster goes on to say that "homeopaths look at their patient results and believe that no amount of negative research could topple their belief in homeopathy."
A recent double-blind study has shown the antiviral effect of homeopathic remedies. Eight of the ten remedies tested inhibited viruses in chicken embryos from 50 to 100 percent depending on the potencies used. German scientists at a Veterinary College showed use of the homeopathic remedy Chelidonium lowered serum cholesterol when given twice a day to rabbits on a cholesterol rich diet.
The British Journal of Clinical Pharmacology published a double-blind experiment on patients with rheumatoid arthritis. Of those given a homeopathic medicine, 82 percent experienced some relief of symptoms, while only 21 percent of those given a placebo experienced any similar degree of improvement.
Research has also been conducted in the use of homeopathy in cancer. In 77 mice that received a transplant in fibrosarcoma, 52 percent survived more than a year when treated with homeopathic remedies. The 77 untreated mice died within 10-15 days.
Many critics of homeopathic research site flaws in the designs of the studies, weakness in reporting and measuring techniques, small numbers of study participants, and the difficulties in replicating results. Homeopathy works and the proof is in the pudding. Because the science is based on one remedy for one person, it is difficult to construct studies and judge the results. Clinical results have noted homeopathic cures taking place around the globe for over 100 years. The miniscule doses are still immeasurable by today’s science, but in the future, equipment will be designed that can adequately measure the healing effects of homeopathy.

New Evidence for Homeopathy

Posted by Dr.Mukhtar Ahmad on November 4, 2008


Two new studies conclude that a review which claimed that homeopathy is just a placebo, published in The Lancet, was seriously flawed. George Lewith, Professor of Health Research at Southampton University comments: ‘The review gave no indication of which trials were analysed nor of the various vital assumptions made about the data. This is not usual scientific practice. If we presume that homeopathy works for some conditions but not others, or change the definition of a ‘larger trial’, the conclusions change. This indicates a fundamental weakness in the conclusions: they are NOT reliable.’

The background to the ongoing debate is as follows:

In August 2005, The Lancet published an editorial entitled ‘The End of Homeopathy’, prompted by a review comparing clinical trials of homeopathy with trials of conventional medicine. The claim that homeopathic medicines are just placebo was based on 6 clinical trials of conventional medicine and 8 studies of homeopathy but did not reveal the identity of these trials. The review was criticised for its opacity as it gave no indication of which trials were analysed and the various assumptions made about the data.

Sufficient detail to enable a reconstruction was eventually published and two recently published scientific papers based on such a reconstruction challenge the Lancet review, showing that:

  • Analysis of all high quality trials of homeopathy yields a positive conclusion.
  • The 8 larger higher quality trials of homeopathy were all for different conditions; if homeopathy works for some of these but not others the result changes, implying that it is not placebo.
  • The comparison with conventional medicine was meaningless.
  • Doubts remain about the opaque, unpublished criteria used in the review, including the definition of ‘higher quality’.

The Lancet review, led by Prof Matthias Egger of the Department of Social and Preventive Medicine at the University of Berne, started with 110 matched clinical trials of homeopathy and conventional medicine, reduced these to ‘higher quality trials’ and then to 8 and 6 respectively ‘larger higher quality trials’. Based on these 14 studies the review concluded that there is ‘weak evidence for a specific effect of homoeopathic remedies, but strong evidence for specific effects of conventional interventions’.

There are a limited number of homeopathic studies so it is quite possible to interpret these data selectively and unfavourably, which is what appears to have been done in the Lancet paper. If we assume that homeopathy does not work for just one condition (Arnica for post-exercise muscle stiffness), or alter the definition of ‘larger trial’, the results are positive. The comparison with conventional medicine was meaningless: the original 110 trials were matched, but matching was lost after they were reduced to 8 and 6. But the quality of homeopathic trials was better than conventional trials.

This reconstruction casts serious doubts on the review, showing that it was based on a series of hidden judgments unfavourable to homeopathy. An open assessment of the current evidence suggests that homeopathy is probably effective for a number of conditions including allergies, upper respiratory tract infections and ‘flu, but more research is desperately needed.

Prof Egger has declined to comment on these findings.

Can Water Remember

Posted by Dr.Mukhtar Ahmad on September 20, 2008


Source : Health24.com

 

water

 

The much-anticipated documentary Water – The Great Mystery, from the creators of What the Bleep Do We Know?, has just been released in South Africa.

The blockbuster made waves in the UK and US earlier this year, and is centred on the theme of so-called “water memory” – a controversial theory which proposes that water responds to our thoughts and, through this mechanism, has a profound effect on our health.

The launch coincided with the South African tour of Japanese researcher Dr Masaru Emoto, author of the New York Times best-seller Hidden Messages of Water, who believes water is deeply connected to our individual and collective consciousness.

Do we really know all there is to know about water? Are these theories as far-fetched as they seem to be? Take a look at some of the theories proposed in the documentary – then you decide:

Water – The Great Mystery
Scientists worldwide agree: water is unique and without it life on Earth simply wouldn’t be possible.

H2O is a particularly interesting molecule in the sense that it makes up the only substance on the planet that can exist in three states – solid, liquid and gas. Water has the highest surface tension of all liquids, it’s the most powerful solvent on Earth and has the remarkable ability to rise up through the trunks of massive trees, defying gravity and immense atmospheric pressure in the process.

This much is made clear in the introduction of Water – The Great Mystery.

The documentary features several scientists from around the world who’ve researched water. The impressive list includes, among others, Prof Kurt Wüthrich, Swiss chemist and Nobel Chemistry laureate, Prof Rustum Roy from the State University of Pennsylvania and member of the International Academy of Science, Prof Vladimir Voeikov, a biologist from the Moscow State University, Prof Konstantin Korotkov, a physicist of St. Petersburg State Technical University in Russia, and Dr Emoto, who is also President Emeritus of the International Water for Life Foundation.

Interesting theories are proposed:

1. It’s noted that water receives and makes an “imprint” of any outside influence, “remembering” everything that occurs in the space that surrounds it. Research seems to indicate that any substance coming into contact with water leaves a trace behind (incidentally, this theory is also central to homeopathy).

2. It’s further noted that, as water records information, it acquires new properties, yet its chemical composition remains unchanged. It seems that the structure of water – i.e. how its molecules are organised into clusters – is key to the remarkable properties that are proposed. It’s hypothesised that the clusters work as “memory cells”, in which water records the history of its relationship with the world.

3. Its proposed that, while water remains water, its structure reacts to “irritation”. It’s noted that “modern instruments have made it possible to record that within each of water’s memory cells, there are 440 000 information panels, each of which is responsible for its own type of interaction with the environment.”

4. Brief mention is made of the difference between free-flowing water in nature and the water that’s distributed to our homes through intricate water-supply systems – i.e. the water we most often come into contact with. It’s suggested that our tap water is basically “dead” in structural terms: when crystals are formed from this water, there’s no beauty or symmetry. Austrian researcher Allois Gruber suggests that this water “sucks energy out of people, plants and animals”.

5. Scientists quoted in the movie claim that water responds to our thoughts. As our bodies are mostly made up of water, it’s said that if the water in our cells can become peaceful, so can we.

6. Mention is made of experiments on the effect that diverse factors, such as magnetic and electrical fields, various objects and human emotions, have on samples of water. According to Prof Konstantin Korotkov, there seems to be evidence that positive and negative human emotions have the strongest influence. When study participants were asked to project emotions onto flasks with water, negative emotions (e.g. fear, aggression and hatred) reduced the energy of the sample water, whereas positive emotions (e.g. love, tenderness and concern) increased the water’s energy levels.

7. This theory is expanded with reference to experiments conducted by Dr Emoto. His research seems to show that water reacts positively to words such as “love” and “gratitude” by forming beautiful crystals when frozen in a cryogenic chamber. The opposite seems to be true for a phrase such as “You disgust me”. Water also seems to react to prayer and music.

What’s your opinion?
We’re amazed. If some of these theories are even just partly true, it certainly turns our understanding of the physics of water on its head.

But although the theories are laid forward by some heavyweight scientists, there are many other experts around the world who are extremely sceptical about the concept of water memory, branding it as “pseudoscience”.

For example, research done years ago by French scientist Jacques Benveniste has been widely discredited. The researcher made headlines when his work on water memory was published in the reputable journal Nature in 1988. His research seemed to show that water that had been in contact with an allergenic substance retained a memory of this substance even after it was diluted several times (so much so that nothing but pure water was left).

However, efforts to replicate his work proved futile and investigators found that the results obtained from Benveniste’s laboratory were unreliable. John Maddox, editor of Nature, conducted the investigation himself and, according to the BBC, later stated that Benveniste’s assistants were being subconsciously selective in the way they interpreted the data.

Regarding more recent work, only one article on Dr Emoto’s controversial theory that human emotion has an effect on the structure of water has appeared in a peer-reviewed journal. This is an indication that Dr Emoto’s theories at least (on which a large part of the documentary is built) can’t be accepted as truth at this stage. More research simply has to be done. Dr Emoto has also been criticised for the fact that he too seems to be doing selective sampling.

It’s furthermore worth noting that many opportunists have jumped on the bandwagon, and have started marketing products made from “structured” or “clustered” water as a cure for a range of ills and an antidote to ageing. To our knowledge, however, no substantial research has been done on the efficacy of these products, which means that they could very well be a waste of money.

Health24 will be following the controversy and will, in time, also conduct interviews with some of the other experts quoted in the Water documentary. In the meantime, we’d like to hear from you: post your comments below and let us know what you think!

Scientific Explanation of Homoeopathy

Posted by Dr.Mukhtar Ahmad on August 17, 2008


By Dr. R.R.Sharma,

Medical Education & Research, Chandigarh. Mailing address: 615, Sector 10, Panchkula,

—————————————————————————————————————

Introduction:

Even over two centuries after its birth in 1790, Homoeopathy is still ahead of times and beyond the contemporary sciences. New scientific phenomena, concepts & sciences need to be recognized to elucidate its science. New controlled tests, other than the Double Blind Drug Trials, are required to be conducted to establish the efficacy of high potency homoeo medicines having no molecule of the original drug. Self contradiction in the World Health Organisation’s definition of health needs to be pointed out and a fresh appraisal of Homoeopathy’s curative & preventive potentials has to be undertaken to reorganise the Health Care Delivery Systems for globally improving the quality of health and for reducing the uses of costly allopathic drugs and incidences of advanced, dangerous & iatrogenic diseases. This paper addresses these and other important issues scientifically.

Avogadro’s Law & High Potency:

According to Avogadro’s law, a gram-mole (molecular weight W in gram) of a substance contains N= 6.022×1023 molecules and the probability of finding one molecule in a patient dose of centesimal potency x is1 p = (6.022/W).10 -2(x – 10) . For instance, this probability for Natrum muriaticum ( Sodium Chloride, W=58.46) is nearly 1 in 105 at the potency 12c, 1 in 1041 at 30c, 1 in 10381 at 200c, and 1 in 101981 at 1000c. In other words, the 12c and higher potencies do not have any molecule of the original drug in the dose. But in actual homoeopathic clinical practice, the potencies used are 30c, 200c, 1000c ( or 1M) generally and 10M, 50M, CM occasionally. Then there are 50 millesimal potencies having 50000-fold dynamized dilution at every step of potentization. And all are found to have observed curative action2. Moreover, according to the Law of Mass Action, the rate of chemical reaction or activity of a compound is proportional to its molar concentration. However, the more diluted higher potencies of homoeo medicines are observed 2 to produce more profound curative effect. Homoeopaths’ such claims are not supported by controlled Double Blind Drug Trials. That is why high potency homoeo medicines are taken by some scientists as placebos, their action as placebo-effects and Homoeopathy as scientifically implausible, violating the natural scientific laws like the Avogadro’s law and the Law of Mass Action3-8.But a “scientist” is open minded and logical, willing to be convinced and change his views if the relevant information or evidence presents itself logically afresh. I, like any other scientist knowing the Avogadro’s law and the Law of Mass Action, used to discard and disregard Homoeopathy as ‘unscientific placebo therapy’ till mid 1960s when a homoeopath actually cured an “obstinate” eczema of my wife. This aroused my scientific curiosity. I decided to acquire the ability to prescribe for seeing these medicines act in my own hands, and then to explain their action within the framework of contemporary sciences. More than a decade’s hard work, studies and thought convinced me that the homoeopathic art of cure is valid but its science is beyond the modern sciences. This marked the end of my search in one direction and eginning in another, as presented herein. Controlled drug trials not applicable to Homoeopathy. Homoeopathy can only be tested by those methods which are consistent with its philosophy and practice. For Allopathy, the terms like diabetes mellitus and rheumatoid arthritis are quite diagnostic of the disease and also suggestive of the treatment. But in Homoeopathy, these are only part of the larger “whole” disease portrayed by the totality of subjective symptoms and objective signs, and as such cannot indicate any specific medicine for treatment. An allopath combines a medicine each for nightly fever, iritis, burning of piles relieved by heat, facial discolouration, appetite loss, anxiety & disturbed sleep, but a single homoeo medicine Arsenic album covers them all. Since the patients of one and the same pathology, say pneumonia, invariably differ in the symptom totality, they need a different homoeo medicine each although Allopathy treats them all with the same drug.

Different patients with different pathologies but having the same 4-to-8 p.m. aggravation are given the same homoeo drug Lycopodium. Therefore, such single medicine vs placebo trials as ‘Rhus tox. in arthritis’ have no validity. The selection of a homoeo medicine is highly dependent on the subjective symptoms and mental state, which for modern Scientific Medicine are of little diagnostic value. The Double Blind Drug Trials, in which the the patients are randomly assigned to the treatment and placebo groups and the therapist, the patient and the outcome evaluator do not know whether the administered dose is the active medicine or a similar looking inert placebo, are mandatory for all allopathic drugs to satisfy before their release in the market for public use. Such trials eliminate the subjective biases because the disease status is monitored via objective laboratory tests. However, these drug trials cannot be carried out in Homoeopathy because here the ‘diagnosis’ is made of that single medicine which is most similar to the ‘individualised’ “whole” patient descibed by the totality of symptoms with their variation modalities. But no two patients of the same nosological pathology are exactly alike due to biological differences in personalities, diatheses and in the composition, patency and population size of the strategic enzymes. So the patients under homoeopathic treatment cannot be divided into treatment and placebo groups randomly. Moreover, the homoeo physician must know the “total” symptoms before and after every dose of the known medicine, so as to check that the cure is rightly proceeding from center to periphery, the symptoms are disappearing in the reverse order of their appearance and the aggravations, if any, are under review. Dose intervals, potencies and even medicines, if need be, are adjusted with the changing symptom totality. All these considerations make the Double Blind Drug Trials inapplicable and irrelevant to Homoeopahy. The drug trials and their meta-analyses, as conducted in the past, without properly appreciating these basic points, will always is inform, bringing bad name to Homoeopathy unjustly3-5.

Controlled drug trials applicable to Homoeopathy:

I, therefore got interested 1, 9 in the homoeo treatments of those well worked out but in a way given up (by modern Scientific Medicine) cases which could serve as their own controls and whose cures could by no means be explained away as mere coincidences with natural remissions. That is, those which, though small in number, could be strikingly decisive enough to dispel the disapproving misinformation about Homoeopathy. These are the cases which for the modern Scientific Medicine are: (i) incurable/fatal, (ii) difficult-to-cure, even with long treatments under Scientific Allopathy, (iii) requiring surgery, (iv) viral infections, where Scientific Allopathy has nothing to offer, (v) children diseases, where placebo does not work.

The cases of Indian Childhood Cirrhosis were diagnosed on liver biopsy, liver function tests, clinical history and physical examination, and discharged from the referral hospital with hopeless prognosis, short survival and with a whisper advice to take the child quick lest he should die on the way. But all showed definite signs of improvement within three days of the start of homoeopathic treatment. Since ICC is known to occur with a high frequency in the siblings, it is interesting to report that the prophylactic treatment of the mother during pregnancy and then of the child after birth succeeded in three couples, one of whom had earlier lost five sons to ICC. His Excellency President of India Dr. Radhakrishnan’s ADC, who had suffered migraine for over 20 years and resigned in disgust when he did not get relief even with the treatments in Germany & U.K., was cured with Homoeopathy. A number of cases with confirmed diagnosis of psoriasis were homoeo treated satisfactorily. The MD in Pharmacology & Dean of Dharwar Medical College

in Karnataka, after reading Molecular Homoeopathy came all the way by air for treatment of psoriasis and experienced relief within an hour of the homoeo dose and “euphoria” on overnight crust shedding. An army Colonel had to fly in non-pressurized aircraft’s during 1947-48 Indo-Pak war and developed labyrinth vertigo. Ever since he suffered giddiness & reeling sensation whenever he layed down in bed, turned on side or bent down. A number of E.N.T. experts were consulted and all sorts of tests done without relief. He took homoeo medicine from me in August 1974 on a Friday and did headstand on Sunday. A four-year girl child was treated in the advance institute of Scientific Medicine for acute Idiopathic Thrombocytopenic Purpura in 1993 with 2mg/Kg-body weight prednisolone and later with 9 gm/day for 5 days immunoglobulin Ig G, then with Chinese medicine. In April 1997 she again had an acute episode, with platilet count <5000. The homoeo-treatment raised the platelet count gradually through <10000 on third day and then 33000, 79000 to 120000 tested weekly. She has been Symptom free so far. A teacher in our Nursing College lost her fiancy in the 1971 Indo-Pak war and developed Thyrotoxicosis complicated with Exophthalmos & Amenorrhea. The treating endocrinologist advised her to learn to live with it. But after homoeocure she married and had two children. Out of the several cases of arthritis and spondylosis the most striking one was that of general spondylosis threatening extremeties and requiring urgent ortho-surgery. The Homoeo-cure gave her permanent relief. A senior executive was admitted for surgical removal of a solitary thyroid nodule. On learning of the possible homoeocure he left the hospital and was actually cured. The prolapse uterus in the third stage advised Thomson correction was rectified homoeopathically. Several cases of renal stone and of viral hepatitis with jaundice were also homoeo-treated; the Australia antigen test undertaken in one case became negative after a week’s homoeo treatment. Potencies used were 200c, 1M generally and 10M & CM occasionally. These, few of my personal convincing observations obtained under the natural constraints of noncooperation in an allopathic institute corroborate the overwhelmingly huge mass of persuasive observations of innumerable homoeopaths all over the world during the past over two centuries that homoeo medicines do act curatively even in high potencies with no molecule of the original drug in the dose. Obviously, some molecules of the diluent solvent (lactose, water, ethanol) are mimicking the chemical specificity of the solute drug molecule. As opposed to Langman’s remark5: “the advance of Scientific Medicine has not been matched by a withering of alternative methods of treatment”, a need is justified for “homoeopathic clinical & research units” in advance institutes of Scientific Medicine to encourage open-minded inter-modality cooperation for the good of Science and patients. But really informative were the controlled drug trials on laboratory animals. Controlled animal experiments. To allay the objections that the action of high potencies with no molecule of the original drug provides artificial sense of relief due to faith in the physician10 and is speculative11 , we conducted controlled animal experiments 1,9,12-14 which also provided much sought after vital information on the role of the homoeopathic potentisation processes.

1. Alloxan induced diabetes in rats Diabetes mellitus was induced in Albino Wistar rats having 180 – 340 gm body weight, 80 – 120 mg/dl blood sugar and zero urine sugar with intraperitoneal injection of 100 – 150 mg alloxan per Kg body weight after over night fast. The diabetic rats were divided into four groups of five each for treatment with : (a) 20m millesimal (equivalent to 30c centesimal ) potency of alloxan with 100020 fold dynamized dilution, (b) 100020 fold undynamized dilution of alloxan, (c) nothing , or ‘sham’ treated with ethanol, since the first two dilutions were in it . Blood sugar in (a) group returned from the initial Mean  S.D. 308  129 mg/dl (range 179-501 mg/dl) to 90.1  4.0 mg/dl in the normal range of 80-120 mg/dl after 44 days’ treatment and remained so without any treatment upto 144 days of observation. In group (c) the Mean  S.D. 276  82.2 mg/dl (range 189-389) first rose to 344  65.6 mg/dl, then showed a delayed slight fall but always significantly ( t – test, p < 0.001) above the normal range. The (b) group showed no fall with 100020 fold undynamized alloxan dilution from day 7 to 25 nor with 20m potency of Streptozotocin from day 28 to 55. But the treatment with 20m alloxan potency from day 58 to 116 showed significant curative fall from 325  148 mg/dl to 176  51 mg/dl. Probability of finding a molecule in the dose is 1 in 1041 in all the cases. Rastogi et al. 15 have confirmed and extended these findings.

2. DMBA Induced toxicity & cancerogenesis in miceUnlike alloxan, DMBA(Dimethyl-Benz-Anthracin) is not a primary pathogen since its metabolites, not itself, induce the pathology. Its incubate with microsomal enzymes of mouse liver, instead of DMBA itself , was the starting material for preparing the test solutions of 20m potency and 100020 fold undynamized dilution. The DMBA pathology in Swiss albino mice was induced by subcutaneous injection of 0.75 mg of it. The 50% survival period SP-50 ( period for half the mice in the group to die and other half to survive) was 144 days for the group of 20 treated with dynamized 20m potency as against 36 days for the 20 mice group treated with undynamized 100020 fold dilution. The 10% of mice in the latter group, but none in the former, also developed a fibrosarcoma at the site of DMBA s.c. injection .New scientific phenomenon discovered and Avogadro’s law bypassed These animal experiments alongwith the above homoeo treatments of human patients establish that the dynamized homoeo medicines do cure even in high potencies when no molecule of the original drug can be present in the dose but undynamized simple dilutions of the same extents have no curative effect. The inescapable conclusion is therefore thrust on us that the agitating mechanical dynamization processes of forceful triturations and impacted succussions, which are unique only to Homoeopathy and not investigated by orthosciences, induce the molecules of the diluent solvent medium to acquire and later mimic the chemical specificity of the solute drug molecule, to thereby themselves act as the therapeutic agent. The dose therefore contains plenty of medicinally active diluent molecules, removing for good the perennial conceptual impasse created by the Avogadro’s law1,9,14,16,17.

The new science of Inductive Chemistry:

The modern sciences recognize the induction of magnetism and electric charge but rule out the induction of chemical specificity of one molecule in another, which is suggested by, and required to explain, the homoeopathic potentization. The newly proposed science of Inductive Chemistry deals in this new phenomenon as also in the preparation and properties of the “induced molecule” carrying the chemical specificity of another molecule1, 9,16,17. For the basic mechanism, one has to revise the physical basis of chemical specificity and consider the only commonality in the diluent media (lactose, water, ethanol) traditionally used for preparing homoeo potencies, namely the -OH group(s) in their molecule. New physical bases of molecular chemical specificity and positive recognition. The generally recognized Spectrophotometry fixes the spectral identity of a molecule by the spectrally exchanged energy E (= hn) via the uniquely characteristic frequency n. Similarly, its chemical specificity is determined by the chemically exchanged energy dE with the other reacting moiety. It is a new plausible hypothesis that the chemical and biochemical discriminatory mechanisms positively recognize a molecule in two steps: First, of physical bonding via omlementary 3-dimensional structures and second, of exchanging the energy dE specifically characteristic of the recognizer-recognize pair. The first step exercises a negative recognition and the second constitutes the positive recognition. The first step can be definite only to tell that the molecule not binding to the receptor for the molecule A is not-A, but the Second step identifies positively via the chemically exchanged energy dE particularly specific of the molecule A. That is why the energy and length of a chemical bond depend on both the participants. For example, the same atom Cl should be in four different energy states within the intact molecules Cl2 , NaCl, AgCl & CH3Cl . This is against the prevalent concepts in modern Physics & Chemistry to assign the same energy state to Cl in these and any other chloride1,9,16,17. But it can be tested , say by Laser Raman Spectrometry. If a molecule B is induced to carry the exchangeable energy equal to that of A, the chemical and biochemical discriminatory machinaries can be “fooled” to treat B as A. The shape, size and 3-D structure of the small molecule B play insignificant role. Its close proximity near the recognizing site on the recognizer molecule(s) is all that is necessary and also sufficient for exchanging the characteristic energy. The initial step of physical fit for negative recognition is not required.

Mechanism of homoeopathic potentization:

The oxygen atom in the -OH groups of the molecules of diluent medium (lactose, water, ethanol), due to sp3 hybridization has four equivalent valency orbitals. Two of these have bond pair electrons and the other two unshared lone pair electrons. The latter have no definite higher energy levels vacant and can be raised, in small steps , to any desired energy level.During forceful triturations and impacted succussions or agitations the outermost electron shell of the solute drug molecules comes repeatedly in close proximity with those of the diluent molecules. This induces resonant promotion of the lone pair electrons of the diluent -OH groups, in small steps, to energy levels of the chemically active electrons of drug molecules. The diluent molecules thus acquire the chemically exchangeable energy and hence the chemical specificity of the drug molecule. During serial dilutions of potency preparation the original drug molecules get eliminated and the diluent molecules resonantly promoted by them take over the resonant promotion of the unpromoted diluent molecules. This dynamized dilution is a limitless process and can be continued ad infinitum. See detailed discussion and presentation in refs. 1, 9, 17.Supportive experimental evidence Smith &Boericke19 studied the CH3-, CH2- and -OH peaks in the Nuclear Magnetic Resonance spectra of ethanol, unsuccussed and succussed dilutions of sulphur in ethanol. Only the -OH peak of only the succussed potency spreads and reduces in area under the curve. No modern science can explain this observation which in our theory however, follows quite naturally from the resonant promotion of lone pair electrons of -OH groups in the potentized ethanol.The Laser Raman Spectral peak 20 of diluent alcohol disappears in succussed dilution of Potassium Bichromate and reduces in height in that of Ammonium Nitrate but a new peak of the solute appears in both cases. These results cannot be explained by modern science, but follow easily from the resonant promotion of the lone pair electrons of -OH groups of the potentized alcohol.Controlled animal experiments on the alloxan induced diabetes in rats and DMBA induced toxicity & cancerogenesis in mice showed that 20 stages of 1:1000 dynamized dilution of the pathogen acted curatively, whilst undynamized dilution of the same extent had no effect. Thus the dynamization induces the diluent medium to acquire the chemical specificity of the pathogen which it later mimics to act as the therapeutic agent.

Power of high potencies & bypassing of the Law of Mass Action:

The therapeutic action of potencies higher than the 12th centesimal is exercised by the diluent ethanol resonantly promoted with the original drug. These medicinally active alcohol molecules can easily cross the water and lipid channels in biological barriers like blood-brain barrier, placenta membrane, cell & nuclear membranes to produce profound therapeutic effects. Large crude drug molecules of the low potencies cannot easily cross these barriers. This may be the basis of the homoeopaths’ empirical observation that higher potencies are more powerful. It could also explain why high potencies could cure even some of those conditions which for the modern Scientific Medicine were incurable, difficult-to-cure or requiring surgery (see above). This also bypasses the Law of Mass Action according to which the chemical or therapeutic activity of a drug is proportional to its molar concentration, and hence the high potencies with no drug molecule should have no therapeutic action. Basis of the homoeopathic Law of Similars All biological functions and phenomena in health or sickness are mediated via molecular mechanisms. Disease, being a state of altered health, is caused by an unnatural substance or “xenobiotic” affecting the strategic target biomolecules, thereby changing the rates and/or routes of biochemical reactions and producing unnatural biochemicals, tissue changes and organ pathologies. The chemical specificities of the affecting xenobiotic and affected biomolecule togetherwith the exact physiological role of the biomolecule in health, determine the totality of signs and symptoms and their modes of variation with modifying factors to provide the “portrait of primary disease” which can serve to identify the xenobiotic causing the disease, natural or artificial (of homoeodrug proving). The symptoms, being effects of disease, coexist with it. The new science of Xenobiology studies the total biological response, including objective signs and subjective symptoms, of healthy subjects to xenobiotics1, 21. This comprehensive science includes as its particulars the Toxicology, Parasitology, Immunology &c. It provides the Materia Medica to the new scienec of Inductoxenopathy which uses “induced xenobiotics” beyond the Avogadro’s limit of 12c as medicines working on the homoeopathic Law of Similars 1, 9 , turning killers as saviours.

Allopathy, Ayurveda, Unani, Sidha &c form a group operaing on the ‘Principle of Opposites’. Their medicines oppose i.e. suppress, neutralise, block or remove the products, effects and results of the disease process. Homoeopathy alone is a group by itself, working on the Law of Similars. Here, a high potency of that drug is given whose large doses in healthy subjects creat symptom totality similar to the patient. For example, digitalis is known to lower the heart rate in healthy persons. Its large repeated doses are therefore used in Scientific Medicine to control tachycardia. However, potentized digitalis is a homoeo-medicine for bradycardia. The symptom totality of a disease, in fact, indicates the total biological response of the healthy subject in the patient to the causative xenobiotic. It has two components: activation of the defence mechanisms against the antigenic determinants on the xenobiotic molecule, and the pathophysiology of the affected biomolecules, cells, tissues & organs. The potentized homoeo-medicine Dx prepared by resonantly promoting the diluent molecules D with the crude drug molecules X contains a mixture of diluent molecules resonantly promoted with the antigenic and pathogenic determinants of X. The xenobiotic X, crude drug X and the homoeopotency Dx carry similar chemically exchangeable energies and chemical specificities, hence elicit similar symptom totality. The homoeocure has two pronged effect: one of stimulating the immune response, and second of dislodging X from the disease complex MX formed with the biomolecule M, through competitive chemical exchanges:MX + Dx  MD x + XMD x  M + D x X  biodegraded/ bioeliminated D x  depromoted to  D, the diluent molecule  metabolized. Competitive chemical exchanges between the pathogenic and curative xenobiotics are thus basic to the omoeopathic drug action on the Law of Similars. For example, Wurmser22 found that dynamized potencies of Arsenic and Bismuth increased their elimination from animal tissues. I have treated1 a case each of Arsenic toxicity with Arsenic album 200c, Opium toxicity with Opium 1M and Belladona toxicity with Bell 10M. The control of Alloxan induced diabetes in rats with 20m Alloxan and of DMBA toxicity in mice with 20m DMBA, presented above, are also supportive.

Deficiencies in WHO’s definition of health:

According to World Health Organisation’s definition “absence of disease is NOT health”. This internal inconsistency or self contradiction arises because for diagnosis under the Scientific Medicine, a disease has to be advanced enough to create laboratory detectable biochemical abnormalities and/or biopotential variations and/or pathologic tissue changes out side the “normal range”, and there is no way of asceratining the normal value of the dignostic parameter for the particular patient before sickness. In the pre- or sub-clinical stage, the clinical laboratories report N.A.D. (no abnormality detected or no appreciable disease) but the patient suffers some subjective/mental & physical symptoms on which a curative homoeo medicine can be given to nip or abort the disease. Therefore, Homoeopathy can serve as an effective Preventive Community Medicine. Its scope of preventing diseases from progressing further to advanced dangerous stages is all-inclusive 23.The other deficiency in WHO’s definition is that it does not recognise the existence or achievability of the “supra mental health”. No organised attempts at its promotion have therefore been made under the Scientific Medicine based Health Care. However the Yoga practices of pranayam (breath control) and dhyan (meditation) have been shown24 to induce the rare abilities like intuition, self control on thought, assuming alpha and theta brain states at will, etc. Homoeopathy and dhyan help attenuate anxiety and other psychological components of disease. The “similar medicines” of Homoeopathy working on the law of similars and the “opposite medicines” of Allopathy/ Ayurveda &c acting according to the principle of opposites can be given together intercurrently with advantage to the patient because their modes and planes of action are different. The Yogic pranayam and dhyan help control the psychological components of disease. A judicious combination of these three with other supplementary and complementary modalities of restoring and promoting health constitutes the new integrated holistic therapeutics Navayurveda 1, 9, 25, 26. Here allopathic medicines are given not to suppress the morbid symptoms but make the basic homoeocure comfortable by controlling the symptoms within the tolerable limits which varies from patient to patient. With the progress of homoeocure the allopathic drugs are tapered off. Thus the need or use of allopathic drugs is drastically reduced but the curative and preventive potential are greatly enlarged. The general quality of community health is significantly improved by nipping the diseases in their early pre-clinical stages. The incidences of advanced, dangerous as also iatrogenic diseases are reduced, and so is the need for expensive centres for bypass and organ transplant surgeries. The national governments even with limited resources can well afford to assume the responsibility of public health to provide “health (care) for all” under this cheapest yet most effective Homoeopathy based Health Care Delivery System. The rich advanced countries presently under the health care of Allopathy or Scientific Medicine have to actually experience, to believe in, the better quality of health achievable via Navayurveda. The basic idea is supported by the simple observation that homoeopathically treated tonsilitis avoids tonsilectomy which is not infrequent if antibiotics are used for treatment.

Concluding Remarks:

Homoeopathy is complete and comprehensive medicine therapeutics still ahead of times. It has so far been disregarded as unscientific placebo therapy due largely to the inappropriately conducted drug trials and conceptual inadequacies of the contemporary sciences themselves. Chemically exchanged energy as the new physical basis of molecular chemical specificity, new scientific phenomena of the induction of chemical specificity of one molecule in another, and new sciences of Inductive Chemistry, Xenobiology & Inductoxenopathy are required to elucidate itsscience which also enrich the modern sciences. World Health Organization and national governments, in a thought revolution of sorts, may reorganize the Health Care Delivery Systems to maximize the therapeutic potentials and minimize costs, limitations and deficiencies. Advanced institutes of Scientific Medicine may include units for Homoeopathy to be followed by full-fledged Navayurveda institutes. The homoeopathic science has to be developed and elucidated enough to put it alongwith other major sciences under the same cover. This is expected to felicitate its scientific recognition.
