HIV, Herpes Zoster, Homeopathy and Hope: A Case Report
This article attempts to bridge the gap between homeopathic and conventional therapeutic plans. The author has cited a case from a clinical setting where a patient discontinued ARV drugs, and consulted a homeopath for herpes zoster infection. The patient was followed up for 1 year, was relieved from symptoms and remained free from opportunistic infections. Homeopathy helped him; he regained confidence in himself and the homeopathic therapeutic measures. The case illustrated here, which has shown improvement in both subjective and objective parameters, may be used for the management of patients suffering from HIV or AIDS....

Homeopathy in the treatment of depression: a systematic review
ConclusionsLimited evidence from two placebo-controlled double-blinded trials suggests HMPs might be comparable to antidepressants and superior to placebo in depression, and patients treated by homeopaths report improvement in depression. Overall, the evidence gives a potentially promising risk benefit ratio. There is a need for additional high quality studies.

Homeopathy as Boundary Object and Distributed Therapeutic Agency. A Discussion on the Homeopathic Placebo Response
Conclusions: Through its relation with biomedicine, its doctrine, consultation design, and treatment rituals, homeopathy offers a powerful medium to elicit a placebo response in a therapeutic alliance. By virtue of its proximity and radical difference from the scientific and biomedical enterprises, its material and textual organization, its storytelling and esthetics, homeopathy offers doctors and patients the opportunity and the tools to collaborate, to witness healing, and to hope for success against adversity.

Simplifying Homeopathy
Homœopathic Links 2018; 31: 097-102 DOI: 10.1055/s-0038-1654679After the initial enthusiasm in the homeopathic community about the exciting progress and expansion since the 1980s, the sobering fact seems to be that we evolved in the direction of such sophistication that our dear system becomes unmanageable. We did our inner work, try to balance things that were somehow off but still the plain fact is that we are still crushed under too much information. And there is no way to stop it! We are only at the beginning of exploring and including every single species on the planet and beyond in our Materia Medica. But we've alre...

Homeopathy for psychiatric patients-for and against.
Abstract The application of homeopathic treatment quickly becomes a matter of ideological confrontation; however, homeopathy is steadily gaining in sympathy in the population. Although the possible effectiveness and the modes of action are currently not scientifically elucidated and the study situation regarding homeopathic treatment in psychiatry is still manageable, there is a whole series of positive evidence for the effects of homeopathic remedies for mental disorders, such as depression, anxiety disorders and addiction. The most important studies are presented and the most important arguments are weighed up ...

Model validity of randomised placebo-controlled trials of individualised homeopathic treatment.
CONCLUSIONS: These results do not support concern that deficient MVHT has frequently undermined the published findings of RCTs of individualised homeopathy. However, the 13 trials with 'uncertain' or 'inadequate' MVHT will be a focus of attention in supplementary meta-analysis. New RCTs of individualised homeopathy must aim to maximise MVHT and to enable its assessment through clear reporting. PMID: 26143448 [PubMed - in process]

Cell sensitivity, non-linearity and inverse effects.
Abstract It has been claimed that the homeopathic principle of 'similarity' (or 'similia') and the use of individualized remedies in extremely low doses conflicts with scientific laws, but this opinion can be disputed on the basis of recent scientific advances. Several mechanisms to explain the responsiveness of cells to ultra-low doses and the similarity as inversion of drug effects, have again been suggested in the framework of hormesis and modern paradoxical pharmacology. Low doses or high dilutions of a drug interact only with the enhanced sensitivities of regulatory systems, functioning as minute harmful stim...

Enhancement of adaptive biological effects by nanotechnology preparation methods in homeopathic medicines.
Abstract Multiple studies have demonstrated that traditional homeopathic manufacturing reagents and processes can generate remedy source and silica nanoparticles (NPs). Homeopathically-made NPs would initiate adaptive changes in an organism as a complex adaptive system (CAS) or network. Adaptive changes would emerge from several different endogenous amplification processes that respond to exogenous danger or threat signals that manufactured nanomaterials convey, including (1) stochastic resonance (SR) in sensory neural systems and (2) time-dependent sensitization (TDS)/oscillation. SR is nonlinear coherent amplif...

Hormetic effects of extremely diluted solutions on gene expression.
Abstract This paper summarizes the results of investigations showing how molecular biological tools, such as DNA-microarrays, can provide useful suggestions about the behaviour of human organisms treated with microamounts of drugs or homeopathic medicines. The results reviewed here suggest firstly that the action of drugs is not quenched by ultra-high dilution and proceeds through modulation of gene expressions. The efficacy of drug solutions seems to be maintained in ultra-highly diluted preparations, a fact which constitutes a challenge to the dogma of quantization of matter. The second and more important result...

Gas nanobubbles and aqueous nanostructures: the crucial role of dynamization.
Abstract Nanobubbles (NBs) have been a subject of intensive research over the past decade. Their peculiar characteristics, including extremely low buoyancy, longevity, enhanced solubility of oxygen in water, zeta potentials and burst during collapse, have led to many applications in the industrial, biological and medical fields. NBs may form spontaneously from dissolved gas but the process is greatly enhanced by gas supersaturation and mechanical actions such as dynamization. Therefore, the formation of NBs during the preparation of homeopathic dilutions under atmospheric pressure cannot be ignored. I suggested ...

Hormesis within a mechanistic context.
Abstract This paper provides an assessment of the mechanistic foundations of hormesis and how such understandings evolved over the course of the past century. Particular emphasis is placed on recent developments particularly with respect to receptor-based and cell signaling-based pathways. Of particular importance is that the quantitative feature of the hormetic dose response are independent of mechanism. PMID: 25869973 [PubMed - in process]

Historical foundations of hormesis.
Abstract The present paper provides an historical assessment of the concept of hormesis and its relationship to homeopathy and modern medicine. It is argued that the dose-response concept was profoundly influenced by the conflict between homeopathy and traditional medicine and that decisions on which dose-response model to adopt were not based on "science" but rater on historical antipathies. While the historical dispute between homeopathy and traditional medicine has long since subsided, their impact upon the field has been enduring and generally unappreciated, profoundly adversely affecting current drug developm...

Interim results of a randomised controlled trial of homeopathic treatment for irritable bowel syndrome.
Abstract Irritable bowel syndrome (IBS) is a chronic condition for which there is no consensus on the optimum treatment. Gastroenterology problems are some of the most common conditions treated by homeopaths, yet few trials have explored the effectiveness of individualised homeopathic treatment for IBS. A three-armed trial was conducted which compared: usual care, homeopathic treatment plus usual care and supportive listening plus usual care. The primary outcome was change in irritable bowel symptom severity score between baseline and 26 weeks, calculated using ANCOVA. An interim ANCOVA adjusted for baseline IBS ...

Observations on the effects of odours on the homeopathic response.
Abstract Samuel Hahnemann described incidences where the homeopathic response was disrupted by noxious smells in the environment. An earlier paper proposed that homeopathic medicines may be sensed by vomeronasal cells (VNCs) i.e. microvillus or brush cells in the vomeronasal organ (VNO), the taste buds and associated with the trigeminal nerve and nervus terminalis. This paper proposes an extension to the theory and suggests that a subset of solitary chemosensory cells (SCCs) in the diffuse chemosensory system (DCS) that is morphologically similar to VNCs might also be receptive to homeopathic medicines. The types ...

Hahnemann and placebo.
This study is based upon unpublished documents (e.g. patients' letters) in the Archives of the Institute for the History of Medicine of the Robert Bosch Foundation in Stuttgart. It also profited from the critical edition of Hahnemann's case journals and the editorial comments which have also been published in this series. Hahnemann differentiated clearly between homeopathic drugs and pharmaceutical substances which he considered as sham medicine (e.g. milk sugar). A close look at Hahnemann's case journals reveals that the percentage of placebo prescriptions was very high (between 54 and 85 percent). In most instances Hahne...
