Nobel Prize winner reports the effects of Homeopathic Dilutions!

Professor Luc Montagnier, 2008 Nobel Prize Winner, reports the Effects of Homeopathic Dilutions:


In a recent study Professor Luc Montagnier, a French virologist who co-discovered HIV and who won the Nobel Prize in 2008, and his team report the results of a series of rigorous experiments investigating the electromagnetic properties of highly-diluted biological samples.

The study demonstrates that some bacterial DNA sequences are able to induce electromagnetic waves at high aqueous dilutions. It appears to be a resonance phenomenon triggered by the ambient electromagnetic background of very low frequency waves. The researchers used aqueous solutions that were agitated and serially diluted (the researchers note that the solutions were 'strongly agitated' and that this step was 'critical for the generation of signals'). In other words homeopathic potencies, although the word 'homeopathy' is not mentioned in the article.

The researchers found that pathogenic bacteria and viruses show a distinct electromagnetic signature at dilutions ranging from 10^-5 to 10^-12 (corresponding to 5D to 12D) and that small DNA fragments (responsible for pathogenicity) were solely accountable for the electromagnetic signal. The researchers also noted that one experiment found significant effects from dilutions as high as 10^-18 (equivalent to 18D). The electromagnetic signature changed with dilution levels but was unaffected by the initial concentration and remained even after the remaining DNA fragments were destroyed by chemical agents.

They observed that the electromagnetic signal was destroyed by heating or freezing the sample. Also, a 'cross-talk' effect was found whereby a negative sample inhibits the positive signal in another sample if they are left together overnight in a shielded container. The researchers propose that specific aqueous nanostructures form in the samples during the dilution process and are responsible for the electromagnetic effects measured.

The researchers also detected the same electromagnetic signals in the plasma and in the DNA extracted from the plasma of patients suffering from Alzheimer disease, Parkinson disease, multiple sclerosis, and rheumatoid arthritis.

This study is an important contribution to the growing evidence base in fundamental research with direct relevance to homeopathy.

British Homeopathic Association did not misrepresent evidence to MPs

The Guardian Science Blog on 5th February has an entry by Martin Robbins that maligns and misrepresents the BHA’s submission to the Commons Science & Technology Committee.  We set the record straight by clarifying the facts:


Evidence Check: Homeopathy - Impartial????

Causal Link between Vaccines and Autism - using British data

Analysis of Japanese vaccine data leads to confirmation of causal link between vaccines and autism now using UK data: http://childhealthsafety.wordpress.com/2010/02/08/britvaxautism/.  The current rate of autism in British children is 1 in 64.  When is our government going to listen and do something to prevent more?  Who is going to pay to look after these poor children?

Homeopathy in India

Homeopathy has been around for 200 years and was invented by Samuel Hannehman. Homeopathy was introduced in India by Dr. John Martin Honigberger from Transylvania in 1839. He was actually in Lahore to treat the maharaja’s horses who were suffering from leg ulcers. The maharaja was impressed with the results of this type of treatment. Maharaja Ranjit later asked the homeopath to treat him for paralysis of vocal cords and oedema. The maharaja was quite satisfied with the treatment which cured his paralysis.

Homeopathy has been growing in India since 1839. Homeopathic Pharmacies are in every major city in India. Most provinces in India also have homeopathy universities to train future homeopathic physicians. India has 186 homeopathic universities. 37 of these institutions are funded with public money. The other universities are privately run.

The Indian government created the Central Council Of Homeopathy which requires uniform education at the graduate level and diploma level in homeopathy. This has lead to standardized practice in India preventing unqualified homeopaths from prescribing medicine and treatments. Currently, there are over 300,000 homeopathic doctors practicing medicine in India.

Allopathic medicines cost more than homeopathic medicines. Due to the low cost, homeopathy is more affordable for most of India’s population. Only allopathic and aryurveda medicines are more popular in India than homeopathy. 10% of Indians use homeopathic remedies which makes India the #1 consumer of homeopathic medicine in the world.

India is carrying out quite a bit of research on homeopathic medicines. Numerous institutions have been created to carry out various studies in homeopathy. Public money has been used for much of this research.

Some of this research includes Dr. Prasanta Banerji & Dr. Pratip Banerji scientific papers on brain cancer. This research was collaborated with the University of Texas MD Anderson Cancer Center in Houston. The study showed that Ruta 6C and Calcarea Phosphorica 3X helps to kill cancerous brain cells but does not damage normal brain cells or functions.

Other types of cancer have been handled by these homeopathic physicians. The doctors have treated cancer successfully in 30 to 40% of the cases.

Homeopathy is an accepted form of medicine by the Indian government. It is generally regarding in the same light as allopathic medicine. India is one of the few countries that generally accepts homeopathy.
