How do homeopathics really work?
Over the years, there has been a lot of criticism as well as acclaim for homeopathy and its use. Yet, it continues to be used successfully, and its proponents swear by it for all kinds of ailments and afflictions. With time, as its effectiveness has become mainstream knowledge, scientists have proposed several theories as to its workings.
Homeopathy works through the power of dilution of substances. The effects of micro-doses have been known for a long time, and there are a number of examples that support the idea that extremely diluted concentrations of a substance will have a measurable and profound effect. Scientists call this phenomenon ‘hormesis’.
Homeopathic remedies are also known to work in the ‘spiritual or ‘energy’ plane, rather than a purely physical plane, similar to acupuncture and therapeutic touch. The basis for this argument is that although the physical molecules of the original substance may be gone, dilution and succession leaves something behind-an imprint of its essence, or its energy pattern-that gives it a kind of healing charge.
Medical scientists who accept the potential benefits of homeopathic theory have suggested several theories to explain how highly diluted homeopathic medicines may act. For instance, they have proposed that electromagnetic energy in these doses may interact with the body on some level. Physical chemists surmise the ‘memory of water’ theory, which is that the structure of the water-alcohol solution is altered by homeopathic medicine during the process of dilution, and it retains this structure even after none of the actual substance remains.
However, homeopathic experts have believed that the ‘energy’ or ‘vibration pattern’ of diluted homeopathic remedies, rather than their chemical content stimulates the healing process through activation of the ‘vital force’. This is healing power or energy, which has been called ‘chi’ by the Chinese and ‘prana’ by the Indian Ayurvedic school of thought. Homeopathy claims that this ‘vital force’ is restored, or strengthened within the body, which leads to freedom from diseases and ailments.
