  1. Can you point me towards the original article please – I cant find anything on the web about it??? (Is it NANOPARTICLE or as above NAOparticle?

  2. OK, yes, i do believe there may be nanoparticles up to 200c, and this may explain some of the action of the Rx. Much like a very small dose of the original substance.
    I am not convinced that this is how the main action of the Rx is carried.

    This is because I have observed definite reactions and also provings from LM/Q potencies.

    One proving of one drop of Platina in the LM18 lasted for 10 days, with the subject experiencing symptoms she had no idea were part of the platina picture.

    Also, how about a substance like Lycopodium, which is inert and only develops its action when triturated and potentised?

    I think POTENTISATION is still an important part of the remedy.

    I would also be interested to find out if these nanoparticles appeared in both triturated and succussed remedies, or only in triturated metals?

    • nano particles in homoeo potentised medicines – is the begining of the homoeopathic reply to criticism,we will have to ride further, it will certain extent boost our morale

  3. 1.labelled nano particals can help in detecting the target organs /cells in the pharmacological studies and also in drug proving
    2. The labelled nano particals can help in detecting the pathway (neuro -immuno- endocinec axis)in the pharmacological studies and also in drug proving
    This makes homoeopathic system to understand more scientifically.

  4. Depending upon the different stages of potentisation the nono particles of medicinal substances persist, and the medicine acts upon the Dynamic principles of each substances.
    It is no wonder to say about Nano particles found today,because in those days these inventory methods were lacking to establish for them,for a Scientificity in Homoeopathic system. More over, Hahnemann’s perception is, which today accepting all by this technology will be an enlightment for the world of medicine.

  5. On studying H/o Homeopathy we will come across lots of interesting facts which at that time was unexpected and unimaginable. There were no microscope and other gadgets which could prove the science of homeopathy. Hahnemann said the acute diseases were caused by acute miasms. We now see these acute miasms are nothing but different organisms like bacteria, viruses and other microorganisms. Similarly there was no atomic theory at that time…even nano theory is just out of test tubes…..I believe nano theory will certainly explain homoeopathic medicines dilution and dynamisation concept.

  6. i think that if a small drop of a homeopathic remedy in a high dilution wich is more information or i can say energy and the dynamisation and dilution suppose
    very small particles we can try to demonstrated that homeopathy is the future medicine against all the critics

  7. Certainly yes,if a molecule,an atomic energy reacts positively in various field,then why not nanoparticles will react.One can smell the essence of Rose while passing far away beside a Rose garden, the nanoessence transporting through via airmedia.

  8. Yes it deffinitely works on the principle of nanotechnology…It is a matter of pride that finally some authentic body in indian has written a positive word in favour of this legendary science..I truly hope that this will put to shame all those people who have trying their level best to degrade it…All those in the UK who sent out articles claiming that homeopathy is placebo should seriously rethink and stop behaving so insecure. They should well understand that it was placebo then an institute like the IIT would never have bothered to make it their research topic.

  9. modern science needs the document/ witness so it proved. we homowopaths know the fact very well its efficacy.

  10. DEAR DR,
    YES I HAVE BELIEVED THAT NANO PARTICLES OF THE SUBSTANCE USED TO PREPARE A REMEDY ALWAYS EXISTED IN HOMEOPATHIC REMEDIES, HOW SO MUCH WE MAY DILUTE IT. ANY SCIENTIST CAN TELL IF THE SUBSTANCE IS NOT THERE THEN WHERE IT HAS GONE? WE KNOW THROUGH SCIENTIFIC DISCOVERY THAT ALL THE SALT COLLECTED IN THE WATER OF THE SEA HAS BEEN BROUGHT BY RIVERS. RIVERS HAVE SALT IN THEIR WATER THOUGH IT IS NOT TRACEABLE IN THEM. FOR MILLIONS OF YEARS RIVERS HAVE DEPOSITED IN WATER OF SEA SO MUCH SALT THAT NO ONE CAN DRINK IT. I SIMPLY WANT TO SAY THAT IF THERE IS NO INSTRUMENT TO FIND THE SUBSTANCE IN A REMEDY DILUTED TO ANY EXTENT IT DOES NOT MEAN THAT SUBSTANCE IS NOT THERE. HOMEOPATHS KNOW THAT THE 1% SUBSTANCE +99% WATER/ALCOHOL MIXED MAKE 1C AND DILUTED IN SAME MANNER UP TO IM AND MORE. THE DILUTION IS NOT THROWN BUT USED IN LOWER POTENCY UP TO A VERY HIGH DILUTION. SO THE SUBSTANCE IF NOT THROWN MEANS THAT IT ALWAYS REMAINS IN THE DILUTION ITSELF. OF COURSE IT IS NOT TRACEABLE BECAUSE A MICRCOSCOPE HAS NOT BEEN INVENTED SO FAR WHICH CAN TRACE A SUBSTANCE IN HIGHEST DILUTION. THEN HOW DOES THIS DILUTION WORK AS A REMEDY FOR CURE. IT IS THE METHOD OF POTENTISATION THAT MAKES THE DILUTION MORE POWERFUL THAN THE DISEASE. HOMEOPATHIC REMEDY IS NOT PLACEBO

  11. I’m very sceptical about this. Not because I have any doubts about the magic of homeopathy but because one of the basic laws of Homeopathy is that sickness and cure belong to the vital level. ie not the material level. I feel that we are so eager to be taken serious that we desperately try to find materialistic arguments to explain why Homeopathy works.

  12. dear sir i believe tha nanotechnology , and salute them for discovering the fact that is hidden in the homoeopathic pill which was founded by the great Master Hahnemann the father of homoeopathy. I have been practising the same since 25 years and am getting the resulsts.previously i was an allopathic practitioner, later on converted to homoeopathy due its marvelous effects on human beings especially on the suppressions all kinds.I thank all the team working for HPATHY.COM praise be to our scientist Dr.C.F.S.Hahnemann the father of HOMOEOPATHY THE EVERLASTING SCIENCE, THANK U.

  13. A homoeopathic medicine with potency 30C or above can not have any material dose even in the nanoparticle form. However I would personally like to go through and read the research results carefully before coming to a definite conclusion. I understand that it is very difficult to come out of the realm of material dose for an individual.

  14. ITS HIGH TIME FOR THE REVOLUTIONISTS AND REBELS TO OPEN THEIR EYES AND LOOK AT THE “SCIENTIFIC” DOORS GETTING OPENED SLOWLY.MIGHT TAKE ANOTHER 200 YEARS FOR SCIENCE TO OPEN HOMOEOPATHIC DOORS COMPLETELY

  15. It is O. K. It is not a coplete truth,because beyound 200 potency what? This is all about Physical plane.Let me tell you,the deseases are not existing on the physical plane,they are first disrupting the astral plane-Dynemic plane which is menifested on the physicsl body as we call a desease condition.The disturbances which are existing on a dynemic plane Should be treated by dynamic medicines.All the Homoeopathic medicines are not a matter,they are potencies-powers.By the method of susequent dilutions and potentisation-the energy wich was enmasked by the matter of the substance is liberated which inturn strangthened by imparting strokes at every dilution.This is the play at energy leval,how can the physical instrument have its answer?E.G. we use mobile phone, we dial anumber,the waves reach the satelite and comes back to whom it is sent.What energy it consumes? nothing.yet it moves such along distance.There are certain things which can be perceived cannot be explained by the known instruments.However Yes a high frequency photography have taken phtographs of our homoeopathic potency medicines.I have been practicing since 40 years and every day with every patient I see the result infront of me why to bother about somebody opinion? All my patients are satisfied and happy so I am happy.

  16. I heard that a homeopath on Haiti gave to someone in shock just the mp3file, because there was a lack of real remedy. It worked. So for me homeopathy works because of vibration.

  17. Yes it works, further research is needed. Please also publish research paper so that ordinary people should understand the efficacy. Many people are biased. They do not want to understand the truth. Leave those blind people

  18. Dear sir, it is very clear that always truth is truth and it comes to light so late. All of our fraternity should proudly accept those views and also boldly present it our country. All over world are people who are unable to understand the great philosophy. I’m very grateful to the scientists who proved it.
    thanks to Hpathy.

  19. Dear homeopaths,
    It is an undisputed fact that homeopathy has been working for many years in babies and animals also, to rule out the placebo affect as claimed by non homeopaths. Now new nanotechnology has shown the world how how medicines can be targeted to the exact destination. IIT scientists have proved that energy of the molecules can be observed even after 200 potency. Well this theory of minimum medicine energy tranfer with nanotechnology must have more research to give homeopathy exactness without any trail and error like allopathic medicine.We hope the world will follow homeopathy’s method of practicing medicine after some more serious research on these lines.
    Girija (homeo practitioner)
    after

    200

    potency.Well

  20. Homeopathy works on Nanoparticle technology as discovered by IIT scientists.Yes, because the potentisation of homoeopathic drugs is 1/10,1/100,1/1000,1/100000 etc. It means a particle of homoeopathic drug is dissolved in many particles of medium.

  21. No, I am a supporter of the work of Cryil Smith and I believe that the remedies work through Electro-magnetic oscillations.
    Cyril’s work, to me, is completely convincing. It explains everything

  22. yes, its really works on nano particle theory, but till today not proved by us scientifically.perheps we had not such a technology to prove in past.

  23. Nothing can be dynamic without something. Nano particles are the
    latest small particles, so I support it. But trying to establish the mechanism of action of homeopathic medicine with it, will be a blander.
    Nano particles are so small that one can not arrange to made a medicine.
    Nano Scientists says, if somebody try to do that , there will be a mistake.
    To know the action of homeopathic medicine we have to depend on observation after applying on patient.
    Medicine must be prepared from natural sources, make a dilution, apply
    on patient and observe what happens. This is the only way for the existence of homeopathy and its further development. Otherwise homeopathy
    will be a disaster like allopathy.

  24. Yes homoeopathy does work i take arnicsa for bruises and aches and pains i.ve also been taking lachesis 200 for policethemia vera, an inherited genetic disease, my red blood cell counts were very high now they are more in the normal levels.

    no leeches or blood withdrawals for me just good old fashioned snake venom.

  25. Simply, it is due to low dose stimulation & high dose inhibition(hormesis) principle. If we see full screen of our computer we need lesser attention & concentration whereas when we see a dot in that image, we need more attention & concentration(means, more physiological activity. Likewise, when we expose a low dose–materialistic or energetic beyond “all or none” principle, to our neurological system, it will take it as defficiency, so will work accordingly–to meet the apparent deficiency. We can say low dose is a false/manipulated signal to nervous system of defficiency which causes stimulation or low dose stimulation.

  26. i strongly say that homoeopathy is a nanotechnology that immediatly work at body as like heavy bomb blost. but no have side effect at live body.

  27. I think it is irrelevant whether it is nanoparticle technology or not.

    I believe studies are useful only when they try to discover something useful for patients and practitioners, and I don’t think this is such a case.
    Proving exactly how homeopathy works will not help curing more people or making it easier to understand and to apply. It could only be used in debates against those who don’t believe yet in homeopathy. But the main purpose of homeopathy is not fighting opinions, but helping those who are ready to be helped.

    I know we want everybody to take advantage of the benefits of homeopathy, but it it useless to force things desperately.
    Understanding homeopathy is something much bigger than some lab experiments. We are not ready yet to fully understand everything that was scientifically discovered up to date. Just take the relativity theory for example, how many people fully understand it and fully embrace it? Many people just accept it because that’s what they have been told, and they blindly believe, do we really want this with homeopathy too? So, I don’t think that discovering some properties of some nanoparticles will change the mentality of people that are not ready to change.

    There is the simplest way in the world of proving homeopathy works: trying it yourself, or making a proving of a remedy. And still, those who don’t want to see it, won’t try it and won’t see it, no matter what. So why bother? Just for debates?

    And I know that we all are curious to find out more about it, to understand better and to have the answer, but I believed this desperate race to discover is useless. Why don’t we step back a little, and try to learn from the homeopathic ‘wisdom’ and be patient with ourselves until we are really ready to understand.

  28. Does not make sense. If they nanoparticles are there up to the 200, what about the Ms and 10Ms, that can really knock your socks off, more than the lower potencies?

  29. It is not a question if homeopathy works or not. If you believe it works,it certainly works and if you do not please do not go to homeopaths as you may think it’s placebo.
    many patients suggest homeopathy is a good science and cure is sure irrespective of potencies(many evidences of cured patients are there). We should not indulge in controversy whether homeopathy works.
    If it does not work at all treat the system as holistic and home remedies where you can try yourself after deep study of the materia medica & other resources.It has stood for more than 200 years after all criticms.Why others around the world talk to ban Homeopathy when they think the white pills or the solutions are inert(placebos)? and placebos of course do not harm.Do Sugar harm you( when taken in appropriate quantity? does treated water harm you?). So please stop saying BAN HOMEOPATHY( as you are taking nothing poisonous only sugar pills). Try yourself if you have belief or abstain from giving a bad name.

  30. Let them study about NANO PARTICLES,we are working on it for years and need no certificate with any-body.

  31. Yes this is one of the ways homeopathy is effective medicine. The next big problem is to get our remedies to work for NanoToxins which are everywhere of late. If you researxh you will see that the best they’ve found thus far is to pair certain minerals together to eliminate such from the body and blood. We will need to do something similar to fight this very modern malady. I have tried with molyb-chlorophyllin but it is too harsh.

  32. Everthing which can’t be described by our modern science does not mean that they are not working but we need to search more like nanoparticles for homoeopathy.

  33. Homeopathy works on too many levels to be “explained” so simply. But its not even an explanation. Its only a possible carrier mechanism. The real explanation lies with morphogenetic fields as described by Rupert Sheldrake, Phd, I believe. This has more scope for explaning the complexity of the homeopathic response.

  34. Yes, it, surely, works on some technology like that. It,however, needs more research and field work in this direction. To my mind this nano- technology is an extension of our system of cm or mm potentization. Nano-technology has opened new vistas before us and we can give a befiting reply to skeptics and placibo howlers who refuse to accept the efficacy of our potentized remedies.
    In tis behalf I have a question lurking in my mind for a long time. How far is it safe to use plastic vials to dispense homeopathic
    globules saturated in alcohol? Don’t some ions of plastic come in contact with alcohol and interfere with the potency of the remedy we use?
    I would appreciate a reply from any corner i.e. practitioners,
    researchers, teachers or the editorial board.

  35. I see by experence that homeopathy is more than nanoparticle technology . I’ve personally seen remedies in 1m or cm potency change a person’s pain within 5 minutes while some others suggested operation. A person I gave a single pill was cured and didn’t not require any other remedies. He was became well within 5-10 minutes and the cure lasted.

  36. To a certain extent Yes.I do not doubt about the finding of neno particles in 2oo potency, but what about still higher potencies? Real fact is the energy which is existing in the potencised solution is working and please note that you cannot get microscopic findings of energy.The action of the medicine is like this :The patient is possessed by a negative energy of a perticular frequency of the desease,now we donot have the quality and measurement of the desease energy, but the negative energy expresses its quality in the form of signs and symptoms of the patient.These signs and syomptions to be matched with the signs and symptions of the suitable drug found during proveings, because it represents the same frequency of the desease negatice frequency .But this is being stronger than the desease potency,the body is now in possession of the drug stronger energy.the law says in presence of strong energy weak energy goes away.In the end this strong energy having a very small quanty, patient’s resistance power or say body’s immune system overcomes by generating required antigens and makes the body free from the deseased condition.This is all the play of energy.
    Dr Jyotindra Trivedi

  37. Much before the IIT scientists discovered that Homeopathy works on Nano Particle Technology, I was always intuitively thinking, and feeling that Homeopathy is a Science of Nano Technology; but that was only a ‘right brainwave’: I did not have the logical tools of ‘left brain’ to prove it. I felt extremely happy when I read about the discovery of the IIT Scientists who finally proved that Homeopathy IS scientific after all. Even beyond 200C, I think Homeopathy works on the ‘Nano Energy’ Principle, if I can use such a term, because Homeopathy IS energy medicine.

  38. As per Avogadro’s number there would be particle upto 12 th potency only.
    Above that there can be nano particles but the major action is because of energy character of the potenciesed medicine which is consistent with higher potencies are considered as well.

    Benveniste experiments actually show the action of homeopathic medicines.

  39. In my life time experience I have used several medicines in different potencies lower to Cm, 10 CM ,50 CM and DM and explored marvellous results.
    I saved 4th operation of femur ,in bone tuberculosis ,administering silicea 50 CM once a week for two months.
    I believe the essence of nano particles are available even in more higher potencies and works amazingly and miraculously in both acute and chronic diseases.
    Actually a long journey of experience reassure our faith in homoeopathy
    It is a very highly advanced(Above than an experinced MD) system of treatment which takes least time to act ,regenerate vitality, in a well
    silent mode , which seldom creates doubts among ourselves, but a keen observer can never be misled by silence.

  40. The homeopathic remedies are prepared in potentised form. certainly they are in the nano form only. Therefore, I am in support of nano theory

  41. The Universities of Germany,specially of Hospital Charité,study the efections of homeopathic medications on laboratory.

  42. Yes , I do beleive that nano technology may unfold the mystery of modus operandi in homoepathy. It entirely lies in the domain of the scientist to discover how the potentized medicines act. It is fact that not only 200th but the higher and the highest potencies act in a curative way to provide relief to the ailing humanity. It is the science which lagging behind so that the mystery is yet to be solved. But the unfailing truth is eternal in nature and it will be proved in future that fact never lies. Many of the previous discoveries are being questioned or being rediscovered with new dimension with the discovery of newer theories , hypothesis, etc. The discovery made by our master is still relevant and is being clinically verified by the millions of homoepaqthic practitioners everyday cant be a myth but a reality. So nanoparticle or further developments will surely define the undefined areas of modus operandi. Thanks a lot to the nanoparticle technology and the team of scientist of IIT that they have made the begining………

  43. Sir,
    Besides the phenomenon of nanoparticles,some other properties related to ionic charge accumulated on the molecules of the drug during the process of ‘trituration’and ‘succussion’.It has been proved that every drug triturated and succussed retains certain characteristic energy / frequency band that can be measured physically using instruments.Since property is found to exist after trituration and succussion,the energy phenomenon is to be assumed to be varying energy release from the molecular energy (because of the reduced molecular and ionic strength and attractions depending on the dilution level).
    Thus nano-property and specific energy band give the characteristic healing ability to the homeo medicines in varying potencies.
    It would interesting to study in detail about the aspects.
    Chart out the energy relationship between varying potencies of a particular drug and frequency,varying drugs and frequencies.
    In fact,universe exists and its every activity functions with change in energy level.

  44. Nano technology works on the functions/characteristics of minutest particles, where as the concept of Homoeopathy is based on non materialistic function of the brain the seat of mind. it requires a lot for further discussion.

  45. I intuit that homeopathic imprint is energetic. Not particulate. Even if nanoparticles exist, they are not the origin of homeopathic effect. If one makes observations on the book ‘messages from water’ and listens to Vedic Masters like Paramamsa Nityananda’s talks- I am convinced that the energy imparted to the homeopathic medicine is like electromagnetic energy – at such a very high vibration it is only discernable if we could examine the energy-levels within the atom itself-Also read ‘biology of belief’. There is no particulate transmission necessary.
