Ultra-High Dilutions and Homeopathy: Can They Be Explained without Non-Local Theory?

Ultra-High Dilutions and Homeopathy: Can They Be Explained without Non-Local Theory? Homeopathy. 2018 Jun 05;: Authors: Almirantis Y, Tsitinidis K Abstract We discuss questions related to the 'Benveniste Affair', its consequences and broader issues in an attempt to understand homeopathy. Specifically, we address the following points: 1.:  The relationship between the experiments conducted by Benveniste, Montagnier, their collaborators and groups that independently tested their results, to 'traditional' homeopathy. 2.:  Possible non-local components such as 'generalised entanglement' as the basis of the homeopathic phenomenon and experimental evidence for them. 3.:  The capability of highly diluted homeopathic remedies to provoke tangible biological changes in whole organisms and cellular experimental systems. 4.:  Aspects of the similia principle related to the above. 5.:  Suggestions that can lead to experimental verifications of the non-local hypothesis in homeopathy.

CONCLUSION: There was moderate certainty of evidence that acupuncture had no important benefit regarding improvement of symptoms and quality of life. Further well-designed and well-conducted randomized clinical trials are needed in order to reduce the uncertainties regarding the most commonly used interventions for patients with IBS.
