GB Sprinter James Ellington recently commented “Homeopathy offers me a positive and natural way to prevent sporting ailments such as exertion, muscular pain and aching joints, without any residual effects on my performance” but the war is still raging between skeptics and homeopaths. With the new rise of fundamentalist skepticism taking over from scientific inquiry I thought I would explore some of the theories of how homeopathy might work. I have an open mind about homeopathy and feel it is positive WITH conventional medicine rather than either extreme and even if worse case scenario it was a placebo effect it has value as the power of our mind to heal is immense.
Some people say that homeopathy works as a placebo effect only but In his book The Holographic Universe, Michael Talbot discusses how Unified Field Theory could hold the explanation of psychic phenomena, homeopathy and other subjects which science currently either dismisses or throws its hands up in despair over. Quantum mechanics tells us that all matter is energy and that this energy is linked. Sub-atomic particles have been seen to display ‘conscious’ decisions in their movement and my Quantum Creating techniques are based on principles of Quantum entanglement and the impact of our thoughts (energy) on the unified field.
The effectiveness of homeopathic remedies has always been hotly disputed by the scientific and medical communities. For those of you who don’t know much about homeopathy – homeopaths prepare their remedies by dissolving things like charcoal, deadly nightshade or spider venom in ethanol, and then diluting this “mother tincture” in water again and again. No matter how much it may be diluted, the homeopaths claim that the original remedy leaves some kind of ‘imprint’ on the water molecules. Scientists have always claimed that given the level of dilution, the remedies cannot have any effect given that not a single molecule of the original remedy was likely to remain, and was nothing but ‘snake oil’ – without the oil! However, one of homeopathy’s biggest detractors having set out on a quest to disprove the effectiveness of homeopathy once and for all, has discovered that there may be more to homeopathy’s claims than she first thought.
Professor Madeleine Ennis of Queen’s University, Belfast who has been described as the ‘scourge’ of homeopathy, got her team to look at the effects of ultra-dilute solutions of histamine on human white blood cells involved in inflammation. These “basophils” (cells which protect your body) release histamine when the cells are under attack. The histamine stops the attack. The study, replicated in four different labs, found that homeopathic solutions – so dilute that they probably didn’t contain a single histamine molecule – worked just like real histamine, turning everything Prof. Ennis thought about homeopathy on its head.
Dr. Masaro Emoto’s research into the memory of water and how water molecules change shape when exposed to music and even words may have it’s detractors but perhaps the mere exposure of water to the original homeopathic remedy is enough to imprint it with its essence, accounting for the effects no matter how many times it is diluted. Water could therefore be acting like a liquid form of a Unified Field.
Professor Ennis has been surprised by the findings but still remains sceptical. However she admits that something is going on. In her paper on the study published in Inflammation Research, she says: “We are unable to explain our findings and are reporting them to encourage others to investigate this phenomenon.” If the results turn out to be real, she says, the implications are profound: we may have to rewrite physics and chemistry and also review our attitude towards water which may contain the keys to an information consciousness all of its own.
