India to tie up top institutes for advanced research in Homoeopathy

research

New Delhi: Buoyed by the success of the World Summit in Mumbai, the Central Council for Research in Homeopathy (CCRH) plans to have a tie-up with other research organisations with the aim of taking the health-care industry to the next level.

With recent researches having yielded information on genomics which can be juxtaposed on the effect of homeopathic medicines individualised at molecular level, CCRH director general R.K. Manchanda has called for further research in the area.

He pointed out that CCRH — an autonomous body under the government of India’s Department of Ayurveda, Yoga and Naturopathy, Unani, Siddha and Homoeopathy (AYUSH) — has been instrumental in cutting-edge research publications on cancer, Japanese encephalitis, diabetes, urolithiasis, memory function and detection of nano-particles in high homeopathic dilutions.

The council has already found integration of homeopathic and allopathic medicines to be successful in tackling MDR-TB.

Manchanda expressed happiness the huge participation in the World Homeopathy Summit on April 11-12, which CCRH held the summit in association with the Global Homeopathy Foundation, proved that homeopathy is not a placebo medicine and that it is science.

The summit was attended by scientists from Brazil and Italy as well as those from the Indian Council of Medical Research (ICMR), IIT-Bombay, Institute of Chemical Technology (ICT) Mumbai, Indian Institute of Chemical Technology (IICT) Hyderabad, Haffkine Institute Mumbai, Council of Scientific and Industrial Research (CSIR) and Bose institute – Kolkata.

“The deliberations at the summit held recently and the ocean of information on the research done into treatment of AIDS, cancer, influenza and TB and the detection of nano-particles in homeopathic medicines will definitely take homeopathy to an altogether new dimension,” he said.

Questions have been raised about homeopathy — whether it is a science at all and if it works and how does it work. “Now, we are in a position to declare to the world that researches have conclusively proved that homeopathy works, and works effectively in several cases of complicated diseases,” declared Dr Rajesh Shah, organising secretary of the summit.

Molecular biologist Dr Gaurisankar from Bose institute – Kolkata, demonstrated that cancer tumour regressed significantly after administering homeopathic nano-particles of Calcaria Carbonicum. His research has proved that high-dilution homeopathic nano-particles could kill the cancer cells and considerably reduce the cancer tumours in rats.

Snake venom transformed into a homeopathic medicine could reduce the growth of HIV virus by inhibiting RT (reverse transcriptase), an enzyme required for the multiplication of the deadly HIV, Hepatitis C and Ebola virus, studies at Indian Institute of Chemical Technology (IICT), Hyderabad, showed. IICT scientists Dr Praveen Kumar and Dr Prathama feel this research opens a new way to treat HIV and other such diseases, including Ebola.

In a study by Dr Khuda Bukshsh, genotoxic effects of arsenic trioxide poisoning were successfully treated using potentised arsenic metal, proving the very fundamental principle of homeopathy, which says that like can be cured by likes, if administered in extremely small dose.

Similarly, he demonstrated that mercury, cadmium and tin toxicity also reduced with the corresponding homeopathic medicines prepared from the same metals. “Treatment of toxicity is another area which could be addressed by homeopathy,” said GHF chairman Eswara Das, also an ex-advisor of AYUSH.

Cancer surgeon Dr Arun Jamkar, vice-chancellor of Maharashtra University of Health Sciences (MUHS), said in his keynote address that recent research has created adequate evidence for the efficacy of homeopathic medicines. He opined that homeopathy and conventional medicine could be integrated to benefit the patients.

A major research done in Brazil by Dr Leoni Bonamin and team demonstrated the preventive affects of homeopathic medicine prepared from the influenza virus. “This research opens up windows to many more research opportunities in India,” said Dr. Shah, who is also working on developing more medicines sourced from various germs.

होम्योपैथिक औषधियों की न्यून मात्रा और एवोगेड्रो ( Avogadro’s ) की संख्या – क्या एवोगेड्रो की संख्या से होम्योपैथी का मूल्याकंन करना उचित है ?

homeopathy explained

होम्योपैथिक औषधियों के विरोध के प्रमुख कारणॊं मे एक प्रमुख कारण होम्योपैथिक औषधियों की न्यून मात्रा   है । होम्योपैथिक औषधियों की न्यून मात्रा को विस्तार मे समझने के लिये औषधि निर्माण की प्रक्रिया को समझना पडेगा । होम्योपैथिक औषधियों मे प्राय: दो प्रकार के स्केल प्रयोग किये जाते हैं ।

क) डेसीमल स्केल ( Decimal Scale )

ख) सेन्टीसमल स्केल ( Centesimal Scale )

क) डेसीमल स्केल मे दवा के एक भाग को vehicle ( शुगर आग मिल्क ) के नौ भाग से एक घंटॆ तक कई चरणॊं मे विचूर्णन ( triturate ) किया जाता है । इनसे बनने वाली औषधियों को X शब्द से जाना जाता है जैसे काली फ़ास 6x इत्यादि । 1X  बनाने के लिये दवा का एक भाग और दुग्ध-शर्करा का ९ भाग लेते हैं , 2X के लिये 1X का एक भाग और ९ भाग दिग्ध शर्करा का लेते हैं ; ऐसे ही आगे कई पोटेन्सी बनाने के लिये पिछली पोटेन्सी का एक भाग लेते हुये आगे की पावर को बढाते हैं । डेसीमल स्केल का प्रयोग ठॊस पदार्थॊं के लिये किया जाता है ।

ख) सेन्टीसमल स्केल मे दवा के एक भाग को vehicle ( एलकोहल) के ९९ भाग से सक्शन किया जाता है । इनकी इनसे बनने वाली औषधियों को दवा की शक्ति या पावर से जाना जाता है । जैसे ३०, २०० १००० आदि ।

सक्शन सिर्फ़ दवा के मूल अर्क को एल्कोहल मे मिलाना भर नही है बल्कि उसे सक्शन ( एक निशचित विधि से स्ट्रोक देना )  करना है । आजकल सक्शन के लिये स्वचालित मशीन का प्रयोग किया जाता है जब कि पुराने समय मे यह स्वंय ही बना सकते थे । पहली पोटेन्सी बनाने के लिये दवा के मूल अर्क का एक हिस्सा और ९९ भाग अल्कोहल लिया जाता है , इसको १० बार सक्शन कर के पहली पोटेन्सी तैयार होती है ; इसी तरह दूसरी पोटेन्सी के लिये पिछली पोटेन्सी का एक भाग और ९९ भाग अल्कोहल ; इसी तरह आगे की पोटेन्सी तैयार की जाती हैं ।

विरोध का मूल कारण और एवोगेड्रो ( Avogadro’s  ) की परिकल्पना

रसायन विज्ञान के नियम के अनुसार किसी भी वस्तु को तनु करने की एक परिसीमा है और इस परिसीमा मे रहते हुये यह आवशयक है कि उस तत्व का मूल स्वरुप बरकरार रहे । यह परिसीमा आवोग्राद्रो की संख्या ( 6.022 141 99 X 1023 ) से संबधित है जो होम्योपैथिक पोटेन्सी 12 C से या 24 x से मेल खाता है । यानि आम भाषा मे समझें तो होम्योपैथिक दवाओं की १२ वीं पोटेन्सी और 24 X पोटेन्सी मे दवा के तत्व विधमान रहते हैं उसके बाद नही । होम्योपैथिक के विरोधियों के हाथ यह एक तुरुप का पत्ता था और जाहिर है उन्होने इसको खूब भुनाया भी ।

यह बिल्कुल सत्य है कि रसायन शास्त्र के अनुसार होम्योपैथी समझ से बिल्कुल परे है । लेकिन पिछले २४ वर्षों  मे १८० नियंत्रित ( controlled ) और ११८  यादृच्छिक ( randomized )  परीक्षणों को अलग -२ ४ मेटा तरीकों  से होम्योपैथी का विश्लेषण करने के उपरांत प्रत्येक मामले में  शोधकर्ताओं ने यह निष्कर्ष निकाला कि होम्योपैथी दवाओं से मिलने वाले परिणाम प्लीसीबो से बढ कर हैं ।

होम्योपैथी के संबध मे प्राथमिक प्रशन उभरता है कि क्या सक्शन ( succession ) किये गये SAD ( serially agitated dilutes )  को तरल वाहनों जैसे एल्कोहल या जल  ( liquid vehicles e.g. alcohol , water etc )  से अलग कर के पहचान की जा सकती है जो होम्योपैथिक औषधि के रुप मे उपचार के लिये प्रयोग किये जाते हैं । हाँलाकि इससे प्लीसीबो के आरोपों से मुक्ति नही पा जा सकती लेकिन इससे पता अवशय चलता है कि हर औषधि की अपनी विशेषता क्या है ।

एक सदी से  मेडिकल साहित्य की समीक्षा करने से पता चलता है कि ऐसे कई रिपोर्ट उपलब्ध हैं जिससे यह पहचान की जा सकती है कि इन उच्च  potentised  dilutes का प्रभाव जीवाणु , प्राणि विषयों , वनस्पति और यहाँ तक कि जन्तुओं पर भी असरदारक है । इनके लिये भौतिकी और बायोकेमिस्ट्री दोनों का ही समय-२ पर प्रमाण स्वरुप सहायता ली गई । हाँलाकि इन रिपोर्टों से SAD की आणविक संरचना समझ मे नही आती लेकिन यह बिल्कुल तय है कि यह SAD  तरल वाहनों ( liquid vehicles ) से हटकर हैं ।

इस विषय पर पहल्रे भी चर्चा हो चुकी है । देखें होम्योपैथी -तथ्य एवं भ्रान्तियाँ ” प्रमाणित विज्ञान या केवल मीठी गोलियाँ “( Is Homeopathy a trusted science or a placebo )  लेकिन नवीनतम शोघॊं मे  रसायन शास्त्री श्री बिपलब चक्र्वर्ती और डा. मो. रुहल अमीन के शोध होम्योपैथी औषधियों और एवोगेड्रो  संख्या पर प्रकाश डालने वाले हैं । उनके ब्लाग http://www.aminchakraborty.blogspot.in/  नवीन संभवनाओं को जन्म देता है । बिपलब चक्र्वती एक समय होम्योपैथिक के बडे आलोचक रहे हैं  लेकिन पिछ्ले १० सालॊ से बिपलब और डा. अमीन होम्योपिथिक दवाओं के सांइनटैफ़िक पहलू पर कार्य कर रहे हैं । आपके कई शोध पत्र विभिन्न शोध संस्थानों द्वारा सराहे गये है ।

आवाग्रादो की परिकल्पना और होम्योपैथी के विवाद मे अमीन लिखते है :

How and Why Avogadro’s Number does not Limit efficacy of the Homeopathic Remedies.
#       Homeopathic dilutions have been used since 1800 and remained unchallenged until determination of Avogadro’s number.
#       Homeopathic remedies were challenged only after the determination of Avogadro’s number by Millikan in 1910, a number of years after homeopathy came into use.
#       A mathematical calculation based on Avogadro’s Number led to the conclusion that homeopathic dilution must be nothing but placebo after homeopathy had already been used for 109 years !!
#       It is not proper to discount homeopathy simply on the basis of Avogadro’s number without clarifying the existing fundamental contradictions in science as detailed above.
#       In conventional medicines the molecules are believed to convey the medicinal power in the living body but in homeopathic dilutions it is not the molecules of medicine but the  electrical strain induced in the vehicle, by the  substance, that conveys the medicinal power of a substance in the living body.
#       When preparing serial homeopathic dilutions the electrical strain of the latter differs from the former dilution in regards to difference in molecular orientations of water  but cannot be determined due to non-availability of any such scientific instruments and for which the homeopathic dilution cannot be held responsible.

Homoeopathic therapy for lower urinary tract symptoms in men with Benign Prostastic Hyperplasia: An open randomized multicentric placebo controlled clinical trial

Benign Prostatic Hyperplasia (BPH) is the most common condition in ageing men, associated with Lower Urinary Tract Symptoms (LUTS). Being a cause of significant morbidity in ageing man, various observational studies were conducted by the Council with a positive outcome. This protocol has been prepared to further ascertain the usefulness of constitutional/organ remedies in LUTS for men with BPH in a randomized control setting.

Objectives: The primary objective is to compare the changes in IPSS (International Prostate Symptom Score) within the three groups enrolled for the study (Constitutional remedy/Constitutional + Organ remedy/Placebo). The secondary objectives are to compare the changes in Prostate volume, Post Void Residual Urine (PVRU), Uroflowmetry and in WHOQOL-BREF.

Material and Methods: It is an open randomized placebo controlled clinical trial. The prescription of the constitutional remedies/organ remedies/placebo is done as per the randomization chart and the selection of these remedies is done as per the guidelines laid in the Organon of Medicine. The outcome measures including IPSS (monthly), prostate volume, post void residual urine, uroflowmetry and the WHOQOL-BREF are assessed at baseline, three and six months interval.

Discussion:Results from this trial will help in constructing treatment strategy for BPH patients with lower urinary tract symptoms in improving their quality of life.

Homeopathy was born as an experimental discipline, as can be seen from the enormous amount of
homeopathic data collected over more than two centuries. However, the medical tradition of homeo-
pathy has been separated from that of conventional science for a long time. Conventional scientific wis-
dom dictates that homeopathy should have no effect above placebo but experiments on ultra-high
dilutions of solutes together with some clinical data suggest the intriguing possibility that it might do
in some circumstances. Today, an osmotic process between disciplines, previously seen as in conflict,
is facilitated because over the last few decades homeopathy has initiated the methods of current medical
science and a substantial number of experimental studies—at molecular, cellular and clinical levels—are
available. One area of dialogue and of common progress is that of inflammation and immunity, probably
because these are closely related to the traditional ‘vital force’ of the body’s self-healing power. In a
series of papers we review the historical origins of homeopathy, the laboratory and animal models
related to the field of immunopharmacology, the clinical evidence in favor and against the use of homeo-
pathy in the inflammatory diseases and the hypotheses regarding its action mechanism(s). Finally, we
will enlighten the specific characteristics of the homeopathic approach, which places great emphasis
on identifying a cure for the whole organism.

Here we describe the results of some experimental laboratory studies aimed at verifying the efficacy of
high dilutions of substances and of homeopathic medicines in models of inflammation and immunity.
Studies carried out on basophils, lymphocytes, granulocytes and fibroblasts are reviewed. This approach
may help to test under controlled conditions the main principles of homeopathy such as ‘similarity’ of
drug action at the cellular level and the effects of dilution/dynamization on the drug activity. The current
situation is that few and rather small groups are working on laboratory models for homeopathy. Regard-
ing the interpretation of data in view of the simile principle, we observe that there are different levels of
similarity and that the laboratory data give support to this principle, but have not yet yielded the ultimate
answer to the action mechanism of homeopathy. Evidence of the biological activity in vitro of highly
diluted-dynamized solutions is slowly accumulating, with some conflicting reports. It is our hope that
this review of literature unknown to most people will give an original and useful insight into the
‘state-of-the-art’ of homeopathy, without final conclusions ‘for’ or ‘against’ this modality. This kind
of uncertainty may be difficult to accept, but is conceivably the most open-minded position now.

A search of the literature and the experiments carried out by the authors of this review show that there are
a number of animal models where the effect of homeopathic dilutions or the principles of homeopathic
medicine have been tested. The results relate to the immunostimulation by ultralow doses of antigens,
the immunological models of the ‘simile’, the regulation of acute or chronic inflammatory processes
and the use of homeopathic medicines in farming. The models utilized by different research groups
are extremely etherogeneous and differ as the test medicines, the dilutions and the outcomes are
concerned. Some experimental lines, particularly those utilizing mice models of immunomodulation
and anti-inflammatory effects of homeopathic complex formulations, give support to a real effect of
homeopathic high dilutions in animals, but often these data are of preliminary nature and have not
been independently replicated. The evidence emerging from animal models is supporting the traditional
‘simile’ rule, according to which ultralow doses of compounds, that in high doses are pathogenic, may
have paradoxically a protective or curative effect. Despite a few encouraging observational studies,
the effectiveness of the homeopathic prevention or therapy of infections in veterinary medicine is not
sufficiently supported by randomized and controlled trials.

The evidence-based research of the effectiveness of homeopathic medicines in common immunologic
disorders is reviewed. In part 1, we introduce methodological issues of clinical research in homeopathy,
and criteria utilized to evaluate the literature. Then 24 studies (12 randomized and 12 non-randomized)
on common upper respiratory tract infections and otorhinolaryngologic complaints are described. In part
2, the focus will be on allergic diseases and the effectiveness of homeopathy will be globally evaluated
and discussed using the criteria of evidence-based medicine.

The clinical studies on the effectiveness of homeopathy in respiratory allergy (18 randomized trials
and 9 observational studies) are described. The literature of common immunologic disorders including
also upper respiratory tract infections (URTI) and otorhinolaryngology (reported in part 1), is evaluated
and discussed. Most of initial evidence-based research was addressed to the question of whether
homeopathic high dilutions are placebos or possess specific effects, but this question has been often
equivocal and is still a matter of debate. The evidence demonstrates that in some conditions homeopathy
shows significant promise, e.g. Galphimia glauca (low dilutions/potencies) in allergic oculorhinitis,
classical individualized homeopathy in otitis and possibly in asthma and allergic complaints, and a few
low-potency homeopathic complexes in sinusitis and rhinoconjunctivitis. A general weakness of
evidence derives from lack of independent confirmation of reported trials and from presence of
conflicting results, as in case of homeopathic immunotherapy and of classical homeopathy for URTI.
The suitable methods to evaluate homeopathy effectiveness, without altering the setting of cure, are also
analyzed.

The foundation of homeopathic medicine is the ‘Similia Principle’, also known as the ‘Principle
of Similarity’ or also as the ‘Simile’, which reflects the inversion of pharmacological effects in
healthy subjects as compared with sick ones. This article describes the inversion of effects, a
widespread medical phenomenon, through three possible mechanisms: non-linearity of dose–
response relationship, different initial pathophysiological states of the organism, and
pharmacodynamics of body response to the medicine. Based on the systemic networks which
play an important role in response to stress, a unitary and general model is designed:
homeopathic medicines could interact with sensitive (primed) regulation systems through
complex information, which simulate the disorders of natural disease. Reorganization of
regulation systems, through a coherent response to the medicine, could pave the way to the
healing of the cellular, tissue and neuro-immuno-endocrine homeodynamics. Preliminary
evidence is suggesting that even ultra-low doses and high-dilutions of drugs may incorporate
structural or frequency information and interact with chaotic dynamics and physical-
electromagnetic levels of regulation. From the clinical standpoint, the ‘simile’ can be regarded
as a heuristic principle, according to which the detailed knowledge of pathogenic effects of
drugs, associated with careful analysis of signs and symptoms of the ill subject, could assist
in identifying homeopathic remedies with high grade of specificity for the individual case.
