Memory of Water

A good chunk of the research into how homeo-related products might work focuses on water and more specifically that water has an ability to retain a memory of things that have interacted with it. The term was coined by Jacques Benveniste - a negatively biased article on him can be found here - who ran a series of intriguing experiments to demonstrate this property. There were significant problems with reproducibility, but his research is still quite fascinating. Here are a few articles discussing the memory of water.

The first article is by Martin Chaplin PhD - who has extensive experience in the properties of water and appears to have a sympathetic ear towards homeopathy. Dr. Chaplin's article is a very careful look at the entire potentizing process - including properties of potentizing containers and alcohol interactions.

Memory of Water - M. Chaplin

A very detailed look at the role that an aspect of quantum mechanics might play in the 'Memory of Water' controversy, written by Italo Vecchi. Mr. Vecchi is a physicist and takes a very critical look at the controversy. It's a bit heavy going if you don't have a background in quantum mechanics, but is still a great read if you're willing to get dunked in the deep end of the pool a few times.

Electromagnetic Signals produced by aqueous nanostructures

Nobel laureate Luc Montagnier published this paper on an experiment he and his team performed that apparently demonstrated detectable electromagnetic signals in low potency homeopathic dilutions. He did not use the h-word in the paper, as that is a guarantee that the paper will not make it into the wider press. He used a method of Jacques Benveniste to detect the electromagnetic signals. The method - as described in the paper and in one of M. Benveniste's patents - is apparently straightforward digitized sound wave signal processing based on fast fourier transforms. Attempts to replicate the detection process by the author - with training in this field - were unsuccessful.

Homeopathy: How it Works and How it is Done

A seven part article by Professor Cyril Smith.Dr. Smith has a background in Physics - he was a professor in Electrical Engineering at Salford University in the UK. He has published extensively on the subject of homeopathy, electrical/chemical hyper-sensitivities and subtle energies more generally. In this article, Prof. Smith describes his work with electrically hypersenstive patients, discovers the frequencies that they are over-responding to, relates those frequencies to chemical hypersensitivities, then connects those frequencies to the frequencies of homeopathic remedies. While we do not think that frequency is a complete explanation of how homeopathy might work - any more than saying 440 Hz describes the sound a flute makes - it does provide a significant piece of the puzzle.

Real life study of the effect of Homeopathy in the treatment of allergies

An Austrian journal reports on the beneficial effects of classical homeopathic treatment of allergies. The study was small - 40 patients - but all participants showed some benefit from the treatment, some markedly (p<0.001). 21 participants were able to eliminate at least one medication, the remaining participants were able to reduce dosages on of at least one medication. No side effects were reported in any participants.

An abstract of the study is available on PubMed:
