Biological Actions, Electrical Conductance and Silicon-Containing Microparticles of Arsenicum Album Prepared in Plastic and Glass Vials.

CONCLUSION:  The non-specific, pro-inflammatory effects might be attributed to organic residuals detached from the vials' plastic walls during manipulation. Instead, specific silica-independent effects of the homeopathic medicine can be attributed to the decrease of interleukin-6 after treatment with the 200th centesimal dilution of arsenic.

Cancer patients — including those with mesothelioma — who receive complementary therapy are likely to die sooner than those who use only conventional treatment, according to researchers at Yale School of Medicine. Patients receiving complementary medicine also were more inclined to forego at least one component of their conventional treatment regimen. The study was done by a team from the Yale Cancer Outcomes, Public Policy and Effectiveness Research Center at Yale School of Medicine. JAMA Oncology published the study July 19. “The study was about patients who were using unproven therapies for treatment...

Jump to follow-up On Monday evening (8th January 2018), I got an email from Ben van der Merwe, a UCL student who works as a reporter for the student newspaper, London Student.  He said “Our investigation has found a ring of academic psychologists associated with Richard Lynn’s journal Mankind Quarterly to be holding annual conferences at UCL. This includes the UCL psychologist professor James Thompson”. He asked me for comment about the “London Conference on Intelligence”. His piece came out on Wednesday 10th January. It was a superb piece of investigative journalism.  On the same ...

Abstract BACKGROUND: A series of different experimental approaches was applied in Zincum metallicum (Zinc met.) samples and lactose controls. Experiments were designed to elucidate the effect of zinc trituration and dynamization on physicochemical properties of homeopathic formulations, using lactose as excipient. METHODS: Zinc met. potencies (Zinc met 1-3c) were triturated and dynamized using lactose as excipient, according to Brazilian Homeopathic Pharmacopoeia. Lactose samples (LAC 1-3c) were also prepared following the same protocol and used as controls. The samples were analyzed structurally by Atomic Ab...

Homœopathic Links 2017; 30: 123-128 DOI: 10.1055/s-0037-1602783Allergic rhinitis and sinusitis are one of the most common chronic upper respiratory tract medical conditions. As they occur simultaneously or coexist together, the correct term for these conditions will be allergic rhinosinusitis. The challenging question arises in mind whether all allergic patients are immune deficient in some way. Therefore, samples from well-diagnosed allergic patients need to be evaluated genetically using a candidate gene and a whole-genome scan approach. A better understanding of the pathogenesis and the causative factors responsib...

The nature of the U.S. legal system makes companies producing homeopathic remedies an easy target, say one Canadian corporate lawyer. Consumers in the U.S. frequently win cases based on "false claim" arguments.

We are from Bangalore and had been trying to conceive from past 10+ years without any success. We had seen multiple doctors here and tried stimulated cycles, couple of IUIs and one round of IVF at highly reputed clinics here. We even tried alternative medicines like homeopathy, ayurveda etc.. In these past 10+ years, I conceived naturally 4 times but miscarried before 9 weeks.When we decided to do IVF at the end of 2012, I contacted Dr. Malpani for second opinion and his feedback gave me a lot of confidence to go ahead with IVF with a local clinic, but it was not a success. The tremendous stress I went through this IV...

We present a patient with Hodgkin's lymphoma, scanned with 18F-FDG PET/CT for evaluation of response after chemotherapy, who was self-administering mistletoe as a homeopathic medicine product. The careful review of the images of the entire scan and patient collaboration in anamnesis were crucial to avoid a false positive result. A review of the published scientific data on the effects of mistletoe is also presented.

CONCLUSION: The current study reports the anticancer activity of homeopathic preparations of TC against breast cancer and reveals their nanoparticulate nature. These preliminary results warrant further mechanistic studies at both in vitro and in vivo levels to evaluate the potential of TC as nanomedicine in breast cancer.

The world's most celebrated athlete standing on the podium in Rio in honor of receiving yet another gold medal has something important in common with your lazy uncle throwing back a cold one in his Barcalounger. Yes, swimming powerhouse Michael Phelps, purple-spotted from cupping therapy, and your slovenly relative with a beer gut both share a bond -- a weakness in succumbing to the allure of voodoo medicine. Modern-day snake oil salesmen hawking quick cures and TV doctors peddling the latest diet miracle with blatantly ridiculous claims are everywhere on the tube, social media, the supermarket and old-fashioned billboards...
