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.
MEDICAL FACTS
FOR…
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
AGAINST…
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

High Dilution Growth Factors/Cytokines: Positive Immunologic, Hematologic and Clinical Effects in HIV/AIDS Patients

High Dilution Growth Factors/Cytokines: Positive Immunologic, Hematologic and Clinical Effects in HIV/AIDS Patients

Source : Bastyr University Research Institute

Barbara Brewitt, PhD; Leanna Standish, ND, PhD Biomedical Explorations, Seattle, WA; Bastyr University Health Clinic, Seattle, WA

Objective: Determine efficacy of administering 4 high dilution cytokines; platelet-derived growth factor BB, insulin-like-growth factor-1, transforming growth factor beta 1, and granulocyte-macrophage colony simulatin factor (GM-CSF).

Methods: Sixteen weeks treatment group (“TX”)/placebo group (“PL”): CD4 counts 200-500 and 16 weeks open label study: CD4 counts 1250550, 10 drops/3X day/bottle p.o. growth factor type or placebo. Exclusion criteria: antiretroviral or steroidal therapy. Monthly evaluations: T/B lymphocytes, blood chemistry plus lipids, complete blood count, platelets, erythrocyte sedimentation rate (ESR), weigh, opportunistic infections (OIs) and HIV viral load (open label only). Growth factors/cytokines diluted (10-60, 10-400, 10-2000 molar), well beyond Avogadro’s number.

Results: TX/PL started with CD4s of 330±14 cells/ul (SEM). TX (n=13) raised CD4 & CD8 counts by 13±12 cells/uL and 83±4 cells/uL, respectively, vs. -55±15 CD4 cells/uL (p<0.008) by 16 weeks and -246±60 CD8 cells/uL (p<0.04 within group) by 20 weeks in placebo group (n=9). TX had no OIs vs. 20% Ois in PL. ESR with treatment decreased from 19±3 to 11±2 mm/hr between 8th and 16th week (p<0.01) vs. no change in placebo group, 20±5 to 17±4 mm/hr. TX gained +2.0±1.0 lbs vs. -4.0±1.4 lbs. in the placebo (p<0.01). Viral load was measured monthly in a separate group of patients (n=8) with CD4 count of 242±23 cells/uL. Viral decreased from 203,400±106,300 to 105,000±43,500 RNA copies/mL after 16 weeks of treatment, a decrease of 0.3 log unit. When PL patients were crossed over to treament for another 16 weeks, CD4, CD8 counts and viral load stabilized (112,000±19,000 RNA copies/mL) plus weigh loss was reversed. Eight patients completed 11 months of treatment with ending viral loads of 19,500±6,000 and 38% had no detectable virus, with CD4 and CD8 counts stable at baseline values. Twenty-five percent of patients were thrombocytopenic. During their first month of treatment, platelets rose 23% (111,000±22,000 to 136,000±29,000 plt/uL); 57% patients achieved normal values. Two patients enrolled in a single high dilution GM-CSF treatment, rose from 16,000 to 48,000 and 141,000 to 174,000 plt/uL after only one month of treatment.

Results suggest that unknown biophysical mechanisms of high dilutional growth factors/cytokines may exert immunological effects in HIV/AIDS.

Boenninghausen’s Repertory by Timothy Field Allen
This is the original Boenninghausen’s repertory composed by Baron Clemens Maria Franz von Boenninghausen and translated by T.F. Allen in 1891, although it is not as complete as Boenninghausen’s Repertory from C.M. Boger, it certainly does not lack the originality of approach. In this repertory we can clearly see the original Boenninghausen’s approach of dividing symptoms into their components according to Locality, Condition, Modality and Concomitants and repertorizing by putting these symptoms together based on patients symptomatology.

Sensations as if by Herbert Roberts
This is a truly unique repertory containing rare symptoms expressed as Sensations as if. It contains unique symptoms not listed even in the most modern repertories. This repertory is a must for a thorough prescriber.

Homeopathic Repertory by James Tyler Kent
This is a the classic among all the repertories. All the modern repertories have taken to some extent this repertory as their basis. It is the biggest and most complete of the older repertories.

Boenninghausen’s Repertory by Cyrus Maxwell Boger
A truly unique repertory that uses the characteristic approach of Boenninghausen. Although this repertory does not contain modern addition, from the point of view of completeness of remedies available in the repertory, it is considered the most complete and homogeneous repertory. The version you can find in OpenRep is the version from 1937 including Dunham’s notes.

General Analysis by Cyrus Maxwell Boger
Although small in size, this repertory is considered to be a life-saver when encountering difficult cases. It consists of a small number of very general symptoms with a lot of cross-references that allow to perform a general analysis of a case based on general symptoms and conditions.

ओजोन -एक "आश्चर्यजनक औषधि "

ozone

राजौर वान जैन्डर्वूर्ट (Roger van Zandvoort ) की कम्पलीट रिपर्ट्री मे अगर हम देखें तो अधिकतर लक्षणॊं के समूह  के आगे अन्य औषधियों के अलावा  ओजोन का जिक्र आता है , ( जैसा कि मेरा क्लासिक होमपैथ सर्च कर के इंगित कर रहा है । ) बहुत दिनों से जानने की  इच्छा थी कि ओजोन पर शोध पत्र और प्रूविगं कही दिखें । क्लार्क डिस्शनेरी आफ़ होम्योपैथिक मैटेरिया मेडिका  -भाग ३ मे इसका जिक्र अवशय आता है लेकिन पूरी तरह से नही , जौन शेलटन की elements of homoeopathy मे इसको व्यापक रुप से जगह दी गयी है । देखें   pdf  | हाल ही मे ओजोन  पर विलोई बिकोई की यह पुस्तक हाथ लगी जिसने एक बार फ़िर से ओजोन पर पढने और उपयोग करने की इच्छा को दोबारा जागृत कर दिया ।

ओजोन के प्रयोग

ओजोन एक oxidising अणु है, जो रक्त घटकों के साथ  मिलकर प्रतिक्रिया रुप मे कई महत्वपूर्ण जैविक कार्यों को सक्रिय करने के लिए उत्तरदायी रहता है जैसे ऑक्सीजन डिलीवरी, प्रतिरक्षा सक्रियण, हार्मोन और एंटी एंजाइमों के प्रेरण की रिहाई   जो atherosclerosis, मधुमेह, संक्रमण और कैंसर में एक महत्वपूर्ण रोल निभा सकता  है . इसके अलावा ओजोन थेरेपी नाइट्रिक ऑक्साइड synthase को induce   करके  अंतर्जात स्टेम सेल को जुटाने मे मदद कर सकता है  जिससे संभवत: इस्कीमिक ऊतकों के उत्थान को बढ़ावा मिलने की संभावना मिल सकती है । इन सब को समझने के लिए ओजोन कैसे काम करता है और एक दवा के रूप में चिकित्सकीय सीमा के भीतर कैसे विकिसित किया जा सकता है विलोई बोकोई की यह पुस्तक शोधकर्ताओं, चिकित्सकों और ozonetherapists को नये सिरे से सोचने पर मजबूर कर सकती है ।

अपने देश मे ओजोन किसी भी पोटेन्सी मे उपलब्ध नही है , होम्योपैथिक दवा इन्डस्ट्री से जुडे दो महत्वपूर्ण ईकाई बोरोन (Boiron India) और शवाबे इंडिया (Schwabe India)  से अनुरोध है कि इसकी उपलब्धता अपने देश मे भी करें ।

OZONE
A New Medical Drug

    by

Velio Bocci
Medical Doctor, Specialist in Respiratory Diseases and Haematology and Emeritus Professor of Physiology at the University of Siena,
Siena, Italy

Oxygen-ozone therapy is a complementary approach less known than homeopathy and acupuncture because it has come of age only three decades ago. This book clarifies that, in the often nebulous field of natural medicine, the biological bases of ozone therapy are totally in line with classic biochemical, physiological and pharmacological knowledge. Ozone is an oxidising molecule, a sort of superactive oxygen, which, by reacting with blood components, generates a number of chemical messengers responsible for activating crucial biological functions such as oxygen delivery, immune activation, release of hormones and induction of antioxidant enzymes
, which is an exceptional property for correcting the chronic oxidative stress present in atherosclerosis, diabetes, infections and cancer. Moreover ozone therapy, by inducing nitric oxide synthase, may mobilize endogenous stem cells, which will promote regeneration of ischaemic tissues. The description of these phenomena offers the first comprehensive picture for understanding how ozone works and why, when properly used as a real drug within the therapeutic range, not only does not procure adverse effects but yields a feeling of wellness. Half of the book describes the value of ozone therapy in several diseases, particularly cutaneous infections and vascular diseases where ozone really behaves as a "wonder" drug. The book has been written for clinical researchers, physicians and ozonetherapists but also for the layman or the patient interested in this therapy.

The researchers say yes, particularly in the developing world where blood transfusions suffer from inadequate screening and fall short of the stringent safety standards followed in the developed countries.

First, the details.

  • 38 thalassemic patients received hydroxyurea therapy for a varying periods. Several homeopathic remedies, namely, Pulsatilla Nigricans (30th potency), Ceanothus
    Americanus (both mother tincture and 6th potency) and Ferrum Metallicum (30th potency)
    selected as per similia principles were administered to 38 thalassemic patients receiving
    Hydroxyurea (HU) therapy for a varying period of time.
  • The patients were studied before and after treatment. Levels of serum ferritin (SF), fetal
    hemoglobin (HbF), hemoglobin (Hb), platelet count (PC), mean corpuscular volume (MCV),
    mean corpuscular hemoglobin concentration (MCHC), mean corpuscular hemoglobin (MCH),
    white blood cell (WBC) count, bilirubin content, alanine amino transferase (ALT), aspartate
    amino transferase (AST) and serum total protein content of patients were determined before
    and 3 months after administration of the homeopathic remedies in combination with HU to
    evaluate additional benefits, if any, derived by the homeopathic remedies, by comparing the
    data with those of 38 subjects receiving only HU therapy.

And, the results.

  • There was a significant decrease in the ferritin blood levels (a complex that stores iron for use in metabolism) and an increase in fetal hemoglobin levels (oxygen-carrying pigment of red blood cells) during combined treatments.
  • Changes in other lab values were not significant.
  • There was a significant decrease in size of spleen in most patients with enlarged spleens.
  • General health improved and there was an increase in the time between transfusions in most patients receiving the combined homeopathic treatment.

The bottom line?
The authors concluded, “Homeopathic remedies being inexpensive and without any known side-effects seem to have great potentials in bringing additional benefits to thalassemic patients.”
