Most are skeptical of this centuries old medical discipline, but advancements in modern research may vindicate homeopathy.
similia similibus curentur... I'm a bit embarrassed to admit it, but now I understand why controlled fasting is so powerful.
You should also be reading "Ghosts of Molecules" The Case of the memory of water by Francis Beauvais.
Beauvais was a thesis student under Benveniste and produced this large book on the experiments as well as the Nature fraud..
Appreciate you tackling this. Will have to read it again - slowly - to try to absorb. I found Thomas Cowan's Human Heart, Cosmic Heart both fascinating and mind-blowing. But to the extent that the 4th phase of water impacts surrounding tissues & the transport of molecules in the body beyond what we already believe we know, why WOULDN'T it be something we should be researching to better understand? We are 70% water, are we not?!
Quite a number of well-known homoeopaths of the past and some in the present started off either disillusioned with allopathic medicine, or desiring to debunk homoeopathy, only to be captured by its appeal. Though diminished as unscientific and placebo effect, pharma and the medical community seem to have a fear of it, trying to work through the FDA for e.g. to try and pull it off the market. Even before social media, there was a well-sustained group of trolls working at discrediting homoeopathy and its practitioners. Kudos to you for your incredibly open-mindedness and courage in going where some fear to go. Delve deeper and you may well be surprised at what you discover.
As always, an excellent read. I look forward to additional posts 👏
Thinking about the salience of a small signal...
In both vision and hearing the initial detector is extremely sensitive, capable of detecting one photon of light or one atom-width of movement in the air. The rest of the system rejects constant background and focuses all attention on the tiniest departure from baseline until the departure is checked out for importance.
(I think the sense of smell is equally acute, though I'm not sure about that.)
So it wouldn't be surprising if the digestive and immune systems can detect one IMPORTANT molecule in a glass of water.
Fascinating! I have long suspected something along these lines regarding the mechanism of action of homeopathy, which I have long-standing positive experiences with. Thank you for writing this!
Beautifully said. I confess, I had trouble getting through Hahnemann’s book. The Organon of the Healing Art is not light reading. I’m enormously impressed with anyone with the level of understanding of homeopathy and how something so dilute that it’s not detectible actually works. Doctors usually don’t get it. Thank you for writing this. Why not post to X?
Great post, Doc. Enlighteningly educational for patients, inspiring for students of homeopathy and insightful even for professional homeopaths.
