Nobel Prize winner reports effects of homeopathic dilutions

October 25, 2009
In a recent study Professor Luc Montagnier, a French virologist who co-discovered HIV and who won the Nobel Prize in 2008, and his team report the results of a series of rigorous experiments investigating the electromagnetic properties of highly-diluted biological samples.

The study demonstrates that some bacterial DNA sequences are able to induce electromagnetic waves at high aqueous dilutions. It appears to be a resonance phenomenon triggered by the ambient electromagnetic background of very low frequency waves. The researchers used aqueous solutions that were agitated and serially diluted (the researchers note that the solutions were ‘strongly agitated’ and that this step was ‘critical for the generation of signals’). In other words homeopathic potencies, although the word ‘homeopathy’ is not mentioned in the article.  

The researchers found that pathogenic bacteria and viruses show a distinct electromagnetic signature at dilutions ranging from 10^-5 to 10^-12 (corresponding to 5D to 12D) and that small DNA fragments (responsible for pathogenicity) were solely accountable for the electromagnetic signal. The researchers also noted that one experiment found significant effects from dilutions as high as 10^-18 (equivalent to 18D).  The electromagnetic signature changed with dilution levels but was unaffected by the initial concentration and remained even after the remaining DNA fragments were destroyed by chemical agents.

They observed that the electromagnetic signal was destroyed by heating or freezing the sample. Also, a ‘cross-talk’ effect was found whereby a negative sample inhibits the positive signal in another sample if they are left together overnight in a shielded container. The researchers propose that specific aqueous nanostructures form in the samples during the dilution process and are responsible for the electromagnetic effects measured.

The researchers also detected the same electromagnetic signals in the plasma and in the DNA extracted from the plasma of patients suffering from Alzheimer disease, Parkinson disease, multiple sclerosis, and rheumatoid arthritis.

This study is an important contribution to the growing evidence base in fundamental research with direct relevance to homeopathy.

The WHO statement on homeopathy

What the doctor gives me is safe, right?

Those people who delight in attacking homeopathy as being “just water” or “the placebo effect” usually end by demanding more double-blind trials of homeopathic remedies. They point to the ‘rigorous’ trials undergone by modern drugs before they are licensed, and claim this protects the public from quacks who might otherwise sell them worthless remedies.

The trouble is, the whole field of medical trials is full of deception: deception in how the trial is set up, deception in the selection of patients for the trial’, deception in the way the trials are carried out, deception in the way the results are recorded, deception in what is selected for publication (only ‘good’ results make it to publication, very often)….I could go on and on.

And now,  Marcia Angell MD, a former editor of the respected publication the New England Journal of Medicine has spoken out about the quality of clinical research that is carried out nowadays:

“It is simply no longer possible to believe much of the clinical research that is published, or to rely on the judgment of trusted physicians or authoritative medical guidelines. I take no pleasure in this conclusion, which I reached slowly and reluctantly over my two decades as an editor of The New England Journal of Medicine.”

~Marcia Angell MD, a well-known, respected physician, long-time editor of NEJM.

No wonder modern drugs cause so many unpleasant side-effects, illness and even death!

How safe is conventional medicine?

The Times newspaper reports today on the numbers of people in hospital because of adverse effects from the medication they have been given. Over 95,000 people are affected in this way.

Thankfully, with homeopathy you won’t run the risk of being poisoned in this way!
