Laboratory tests prove the effectiveness of homeopathic potencies: "The more complex the organism, the clearer the reaction to homeopathic drugs"
There is a fundamental contradiction between physics and homeopathy: If the highly diluted and shaken homeopathic medicines - the so-called potencies - work, today's physics is largely wrong. Strictly speaking, this applies to potencies above a D 23. At this potentization level, the starting substance was diluted and shaken in a ratio of 1:10, the resulting solution was again diluted and shaken 1:10, and this procedure was repeated 23 times. In a D 23 the original remedy is in a ratio of 1: 102; 3; mixed. From a physical point of view, according to Avogadro's number, there is no longer a single molecule of the starting substance. Any substance-specific effect is excluded here. Clarifying the mechanism of action of potentiated drugs would not only bring in a Nobel Prize, but would also mean a small revolution in physics.
And what do homeopaths understand by the process of potentiation? Dr. Samuel Hahnemann, founder of homeopathy, describes it in sections 269 and 270 of the Organon of healing art as follows: "For its particular purpose, homeopathic healing art develops the inner, spirit-like medicinal powers of raw substances by means of a peculiar treatment. Through this processing it is brought about that the medicinal substance, which in the raw state only presents itself to us as matter, finally subtly subtlyizes and transforms itself into a spiritual medicinal power. "
As part of the nationwide series of events Organon 2010 for the 200th anniversary of the Organon of healing art, the research on potentiation was also dealt with. Basic research, whose aim is to elucidate the basic mechanisms of action, is an attractive topic for both homeopaths and physicists. An expert in potentiation research is Dr. Stephan Baumgartner, physicist and lecturer at the collegial body for complementary medicine (KIKOM) at the University of Bern, who presented the results of his investigations in Leipzig.
"I am not a homeopath, I am a physicist", Baumgartner clarified at the beginning of his presentation about laboratory tests with homeopathic potencies. He examined u. a. the effect of potentiated growth hormones on duckweed and dwarf peas, or the effect of potentized arsenic on wheat poisoned with arsenic. "We were able to repeatedly observe the effects of homeopathic potencies in the laboratory," Baumgartner explained to the around 70 guests with numerous diagrams, noting that: "The more complex the organism, the clearer the reaction to homeopathic drugs." The effect therefore takes over from cell cultures and microorganisms Plants and animals all the way to humans. In addition, models "in imbalance", ie with sick or stressed organisms, gave clearer results than models with healthy organisms. Against the background of these results, Baumgartner is now continuing to research under the working hypothesis: "Homeopathy is information therapy", since a material explanation of the effect on potencies is excluded.
The Swiss citizen finally answered why he was so interested in homeopathy research by quoting a colleague, the Berlin physicist Professor Martin Lambeck: "From the fact that I cannot explain a phenomenon, I do not conclude that it does not exist, but only that its existence should be checked to serve the advancement of science.
