Abstract Paper

One major weakness in homeopathic therapeutics is the use of potentized drugs
. Once a centesimal potency reaches level 12, its original drug molecules are not present. This is because the dilution has crossed the Avogadro’s number. Homeopathic potencies are prepared in aqueous ethanol. When the drug molecules are removed through successive dilution, a potency of that drug would contain only the diluent medium, i.e. water and ethanol.

The medium also retains the memory of the specific potency of that drug. Using UV-VIS spectrophotometer, NMR spectrometer and FTIR spectrometer show the significant difference in spectral pattern, position of peak and intensity of absorbance of potentized drugs from those of their mother tinctures and their diluent medium.

In animal experimentation drugs are administered through the oral route. In experiments with plants, germinating seeds potentized drugs are applied by foliar spray. So the medicines first come in contact with the cell membrane. Water is treated as a continuous liquid in and around cells. Homeopathic potencies first interact with water covering integral membrane proteins on cell surfaces.

Under diseased condition the structure of water and conformation of integral membrane proteins on cell surfaces changes. A right homeopathic potency would reorganize the morbid structural geometry of water to its native form thereby initiating a cascade of biochemical reactions inside cells. These reactions ultimately result in restoration of health.
