First evidence of Beauvais' hypothesis in a plant model.
Abstract INTRODUCTION: Beauvais presented the application of a so-called 'quantum-like model of homeopathy' by introducing the idea of a type of randomization/unblinding which he called 'in situ'. He predicted that randomized studies based on this type of randomization/unblinding lead to more pronounced effects in placebo controlled randomized homeopathic trials. We designed an experiment regarding wheat germination and stalk length to investigate Beauvais' idea of 'in situ randomization/unblinding' using a homeopathic dilution of sulphur (LM VI) as compared to placebo as well as to water. AIM AND METHOD: The...

Establishing the interfacial nano-structure and elemental composition of homeopathic medicines based on inorganic salts: a scientific approach.
Abstract Extremely dilute systems arise in homeopathy, which uses dilution factors 10(60), 10(400) and also higher. These amounts to potencies of 30c, 200c or more, those are far beyond Avogadro's number. There is extreme skepticism among scientists about the possibility of presence of starting materials due to these high dilutions. This has led modern scientists to believe homeopathy may be at its best a placebo effect. However, our recent studies on 30c and 200c metal based homeopathic medicines clearly revealed the presence of nanoparticles of starting metals, which were found to be retained due to the manufact...

Homeopathy in Africa versus ‘Civilised Countries’
Homoeopathic Links 2016; 29: 032-035DOI: 10.1055/s-0036-1572344The author, educated in classic homeopathy in the Netherlands from 1981 to 1985, discovered the big differences between practising homeopathy at home in the Netherlands and working in Malawi, Africa. In his opinion this is due to massive vaccination and the use of enormous amounts of allopathic drugs (in Europe). For the so-called ‘civilised world’ this is a catastrophe. To practise in this ‘civilised world’, the struggling homeopaths need ‘sophisticated homeopathy’. In Malawi only basic and straightforward homeopathy as taught by Hahnemann, Kent an...

Veterinary Homeopathy in Brazil
Homoeopathic Links 2016; 29: 047-049DOI: 10.1055/s-0036-1572345Veterinary homeopathy was recognised as a specialty in Brazil in 2000, during the 25th Brazilian Congress of Homeopathy. This career has been expanding more and more since then, both in relation to the treatment of dogs and cats, such as cattle, pigs, goats, chickens and even wildlife. If there is a way to really prove the efficacy of homeopathy, it is through the effectiveness of its results in animals, which cannot be influenced to heal but by curative vital energy that returns animals to health and assists in their wellness. There are specialised courses acr...

Inhalation therapy with M1 inhibits experimental melanoma development and metastases in mice.
CONCLUSION: Altogether these data suggest M1 is an efficient candidate for melanoma therapy to be considered for future clinic studies as this study is the first supporting the idea that melanoma patients may benefit with the treatment. The treatment with M1 provides advantages considering the highly-diluted properties and a cost effective alternative to costly chemotherapeutic approaches with, if any, lower toxicity.

Solvatochromic dyes detect the presence of homeopathic potencies.
Abstract A systematic approach to the design of simple, chemical systems for investigating the nature of homeopathic medicines has led to the development of an experimental protocol in which solvatochromic dyes are used as molecular probes of serially diluted and agitated solutions. Electronic spectroscopy has been used to follow changes in the absorbance of this class of dyes across the visible spectrum in the presence of homeopathic potencies. Evidence is presented using six different solvatochromic dyes in three different solvent systems. In all cases homeopathic potencies produce consistent and reproducible ch...

Electromagnetic and magnetic vector potential bio-information and water.
Abstract This work developed over the past 40 years starting from dielectric measurements on enzymes and the subsequent finding that the measurements were affected by electric, magnetic, electromagnetic fields and quantum fields. A request for help in the diagnosis and therapy of chemically sensitive patients who had become sensitive to their electromagnetic environment came in 1982. The same symptoms could be provoked by a chemical or a frequency challenge and this led to an appreciation of the synergy between chemical and frequency environmental sensitivities. Experimental cooperation with theoretical physicist ...

From high dilutions to digital biology: the physical nature of the biological signal.
Abstract The memory of water was a radical idea that arose in the laboratory of Jacques Benveniste in the late 1980s. Twenty-five years have passed and yet the often angry debate on its merits continues despite the increasing number of scientists who have reported confirmation of the basic results. One working hypothesis was that molecules can communicate with each other, exchanging information without being in physical contact and that at least some biological functions can be mimicked by certain energetic modes characteristics of a given molecule. These considerations informed exploratory research which led to t...

Survey of immuno-allergological ultra high dilution research.
CONCLUSIONS: Despite considerable research activity in immuno-allergology and a great increase in the number of publications, there is still not in this domain a "gold standard" trial in basic research in homeopathy. The most studied system, the inhibitory effect of histamine high dilutions on basophil activation, requires clarifications of various factors, including individual sensitivity. For scientific and epistemological reasons, the same work should be carried out for independent reproduction of the experiments conducted with anti-IgE and Apis mel high dilution, in complement of the new axes of research in immunoaller...

Immunological models in high dilution research following M Bastide.
Abstract In 1994, Madeleine Bastide described experimental models in immunology that were used during the 1980s to investigate high dilution effects on several biological systems. She classified the available papers in four categories: High dilutions of antigens; High dilutions of thymus, bursa and other hormones; High dilutions of cytokines; Immunopharmacological activity of silica. The studies about high dilutions of antigens were not continued after this period, but gave rise to a long process of a series of in vitro models on antigens and histamine dilutions, that led to the demonstration of the biological mo...
