Extreme Homeopathic Dilutions retain starting materials- A nanoparticulate perspective : research Paper by IIT researchers Prashant , A.K.Suresh, Jayesh Bellare & Shantaram Govind


छह महीने पहले ब्रिटिश मेडिकल असोसिएशन द्वारा होम्योपैथी के वैज्ञानिक आधार को लेकर लगाए गए सवालिया निशान का भारत के वैज्ञानिकों ने करारा जवाब दिया है। आईआईटी बॉम्बे के वैज्ञानिकों ने अपने एक शोध में साबित किया है कि होम्योपैथी की छोटी, उजली और मीठी गोलियां नैनोटैक्नॉलजी के सिद्धांत पर काम करती हैं।

आईआईटी बॉम्बे ने हाल ही में ‘अलसेवियर’ मैगजीन में ‘ होम्योपैथी ‘ पर एक रिसर्च प्रकाशित किया है। इसमें कहा गया है कि होम्योपैथी पिल्स में सोना, तांबा और लोहा जैसे नैचरल मेटल्स होते हैं। इनके घुलने की क्षमता मीटर के एक अरबवें हिस्से तक की होती है।

गौरतलब है कि आईआईटी बॉम्बे के केमिकल इंजिनियरिंग के वैज्ञानिकों ने होम्योपैथिक पिल्स के घुलने की क्षमता का अध्ययन किया। वैज्ञानिकों ने गोलियों के घुलने के बाद शक्तिशाली इलेक्ट्रॉन माइक्रोस्कोप से इस घोल का अध्ययन किया और उनमें मौजूद मेटल्स के नैनो पार्टिकल्स का पता लगाया।

वैज्ञानिकों की टीम में शामिल डॉक्टर जयेश बेल्लारी ने बताया, ‘निश्चित रूप से अतिघुलनशील होने के बावजूद होम्योपैथी पिल्स में मापने योग्य मेटल्स मौजूद होते हैं।’ सीधी भाषा में समझें तो 4 लाख कणों में से एक कण के कंसन्ट्रेशन के बावजूद यह गोलियां असरकारक होती हैं।

डॉक्टर जयेश ने बताया कि उनके छात्र प्रशांत चिक्रमाने ने ‘ एक्सट्रीम होम्योपैथिक डायल्यूशन्स रिटेन स्टार्टिंग मटीरियल्स : अ नैनोपार्टिकुलेट पर्सपेक्टिव ‘ पर थीसिस लिखा है। होम्योपैथी मॉर्डन मेडिसिन के लिए पहेली बना हुआ है। इसके डॉक्टरों ने इसकी घुलनशीलता और मेटल्स की मौजूदगी पर काफी अध्ययन किया है। इसे हर तरह से जांचा परखा है, लेकिन इसके मैकेनिज्म पर अब भी काफी काम किया जाना बाकी है।

Scientists from the Indian Institute of Technology-Bombay (IIT-B) have established that the sweet white pills work on the principle of nanotechnology.
    Homeopathic pills—made of naturally occurring metals such as gold and copper-—retain their potency even when diluted to a nanometre or one-billionth of a metre, states the IIT-B research published in the latest issue of Homoeopathy, a peer-reviewed journal published by the reputed Elsevier. IIT-B’s chemical engineering department bought commonly available homoeopathic pills from neigbourhood shops, prepared highly diluted solutions and checked under powerful electron microscopes to find nanoparticles of the original metal.
    “Our paper showed that certain highly diluted homoeopathic remedies made from metals still contain measurable amounts of the starting material, even at extreme dilutions of 1 part in 10 raised to 400 (200C),’’ said Dr Jayesh Bellare. His student, Prashant Chikramane, presented the paper ‘Extreme homoeopathic dilutions retain starting materials: A nanoparticulate perspective’, as part of his doctoral thesis. IIT theory proves what some homoeopaths have always known
    Homoeopathy was established in the late 18th century by German physician Samuel Hahnemann. While it is widely popular in certain countries, especially India, the British Medical Association and the British parliament have in recent times questioned homoeopathy’s potency. Around four years ago, British research papers rubbished homoeopathy as a mere “placebo’’.
    “Homoeopathy has been a conundrum for modern medicine. Its practitioners maintained that homeopathic pills got more potent on dilution, but they could never explain the mechanism scientifically enough for the modern scientists,’’ said Bellare. For instance, if an ink-filler loaded with red ink is introduced into the Powai lake, Bellare said, there would be no chance of ever tracing it. “But the fact is that homoeopathic pills have worked in extreme dilutions and its practitioners have been able to cure tough medical conditions,” he added.
    “We had analyzed ayurvedic bhasmas a few years ago and found nanoparticles to be the powering agent ,” the team members said. For the first time, scientists used equipment like transmission electron microscope, electron diffraction and emission spectroscopy to map physical entities in extremely dilution. They could measure nanoparticles of gold and copper (the original metal used in the medicines).
    American homoeopaths—Dr Joh Ives from Samueli Institute in Virginia and Joyce C Fryce from the Centre of Integrative Medicine, University of Maryland—said, “We are all familiar with the simple calculations showing that a series of 1:99 dilutions done sequentially will produce a significant dilution of the starting material in very short order,” they wrote in a special editorial in the journal. But as dilution increases, this theory goes awry. “(But) Chikramane et al found that, contrary to our arithmetic, there are nanogram quantities of the starting material still present in these ‘high potency’ remedies.’’
    The hypothesis is that nanobubbles form on the surface of the highly diluted mixtures and float to the surface, retaining the original potency. “We believe we have cracked the homoeopathy conundrum,’’ said Bellare. According to homoeopath Dr Farokh J Master, the IIT theory has proven something what practitioners have always known. “My instruction to my patients has always been to dilute the pills in water and stir it 10 times with a spoon. Then remove the spoon , dip it in another cup of water and stir 10 times. I advise my patients to do this in five cups before discarding the first four cups and then drinking the fifth cup in two equal doses,’’ said Master.
Homeopathy works on the principles of nano-particles, say IIT-B’s department of chemical engineering team
    Using state-of-the art techniques, they could find particles of the original element as small as one-billionth of a metre
    The hypothesis is that a nanoparticle-nanobubble rises to the surface of the diluted solution; it is this 1% of the top layer that is collected and further diluted. So, the concentration remains
Homeopathy is merely a placebo, said a meta-analyses published in the Lancet in 2005.
    The British Medical Association said that homeopathy had no scientific basis; dub it witchcraft
    Many National Health Services in the UK excluded homeopathy from their purview

  1. लेकिन कुछ तथ्य इस research में उजागर नहीं किये गए हैं जैसे की high dilutions पे plant kingdom group के particle नहीं दिखाई दिए, और Metal Group में जो particles मिले वो उस dilution की 1st layer पे zig zag positions में दिखाई दिए थे
