‘Molecular Imprints’ Or ‘MIALBs’ – The Active Principles of Potentized Homeopathic Drugs

What are exactly the active principles of potentized drugs? What is the molecular mechanism by which these active principles interact with organism and produce a therapeutic effect?

I think these are the fundamental question to be addressed while trying to make homeopathy a scientific medical system. The answer we provide should be capable of explaining the time-proven experiences of  homeopathic practice, same time fitting to the existing scientific knowledge system. Most importantly, it should be provable with scientific methods.

I was trying to explain homeopathic potentization on the basis of modern technology of  ‘molecular imprinting’, and ‘similia similibus curentur’ on the basis scientific understanding regarding molecular mechanism of resolving pathologic molecular inhibitions involved in therapeutics.

According to my concept, potentization involves a process of molecular imprinting in water, exactly similar to ‘molecular imprinting in polymers’. During this process, constituent drug molecules contained in drug substances are ‘imprinted’ into the supra-molecular matrix of water-ethyl alcohol mixture, generating three-dimensional nanocavities that can act as artificial ‘targets’ for pathological ligands that have configurations similar to the drug molecules used for imprinting. These ‘molecular imprints’, when introduced into the organism can selectively bid to the pathological molecules having complementary conformational affinity, thereby relieving the biological molecules from pathological molecular inhibitions. This is the most rational and logical explanation of molecular dynamics of homeopathic therapeutics.

I use the term ‘molecular imprints’ in its most scientific meaning. But those who are not familiar with the technology of ‘molecular imprinted polymers’, fail to conceive this concept in its real meaning. The real problem is that people talking about pseudo-scientific theories regarding homeopathy misuse this term. They say ‘molecular imprints’ in the meaning of ‘water memory’. Some people even talk about ‘molecular imprints’ of drug energy, molecular imprints of ‘vibrations’ etc. I read an article on net where the author was discussing about transferring of ‘molecular imprints’ of ‘medicinal vibrations’ into mp3 files!

All this has created confusions about the real meaning of ‘molecular imprints’. Many people misunderstand my concepts with the pseudoscientific theories going around. Actually, in its scientific sense, molecular imprints are three-dimensional nanocavities in a polymer matrix generated through the process of ‘molecular imprinting’. Once it is misunderstood, all my explanations on the basis of this concept get misunderstood.

Hence, I think I have to use a more specific and meaningful term while explaining ‘molecular imprints’ in my explanations of homeopathy. I have coined a term ‘MIALBs’ or Molecular Imprinted Artificial Ligand Binds, which seems to be more specific.

According to my concept, ‘MIALBs’ are defined as ‘supra-molecular clusters of water and ethyl alcohol, into which the three-dimensional configuration of drug molecules are imprinted as nanocavities, which can act as artificial binding sites for pathogenic molecules having configuration similar to the drug molecules used for imprinting.

Put in a different way,  ‘molecular imprints’ or MIALBs are what remains when  ‘guest’ molecules are removed from a ‘guest-host’ complex or ‘clathrate-like’ supra-molecular formation of water. Potentization involves a process of formation of ‘guest-host’ complexes followed by removal of ‘guest’ molecules, thereby preparing hollow ‘host’ formations.

Actually, ‘molecular imprints’ are ‘inter-molecular spaces’ in water-alcohol matrix, into which the 3-dimensional configuration of drug molecules are imprinted as negative spacial images.

Hereafter I propose to use the term ‘MIALBs’ to describe molecular imprints. It should be understood as ‘nanovaities of water’. I hope this would resolve the confusions.

‘MIALBs’ are actually ‘hydration shells’ formed around drug molecules used as ‘guest’ molecules in imprinting protocol. Water already exists as a ‘supra-molecular net work’ by peculiar type of ‘hydrogen bonding’ between hydrogen atom being part of one water molecule and oxygen atom being part of another water molecule. As such, there are ‘nanocavities’ in between water molecules. When a foreign molecule is introduced into water, the water molecules re-arranges around the foreign molecules and forms a ‘hydration shell’ through hydrogen bonding. Even though these hydration bonds and hydration shells are very much temporary in ordinary conditions, by the process of potentization serial dilution and shaking, these hydration shells are freed from foreing molecules and preserved as ‘MIALBs’. Presence comparatively heavier ethyl alcohol molecules in the medium play a role in strengthening the hydrogen bonds.

Without understanding ‘MIALBs’ or ‘molecular imprints’ in its scientific meaning of ‘nanovaities of supra-molecular clusters’, one cannot follow my explanations of homeopathy.

I started practicing homeopathy in 1970, when I was 20 years old and studying for final year of BSc (Zoology) course. My interest in homeopathy happened very accidentally, through a constant relationship with a local practitioner who happened to be father of my classmate. I was a regular visitor in his clinic, where from I started reading BOERICKE MATERIA MEDICA and other homeopathic books, which helped me to cure myself my troublesome asthma that have been haunting me since my childhood days. I became a voracious reader of homeopathy. I was also deeply involved in studying marxism and dialectical materialism during my college days, which attracted me to political activities. MARXISM and HOMEOPATHY became two essential parts of my intellectual and practical life, which still continues so. Even though I joined DHMS course in a karnataka homeopathic college, I could not continue it due to my intense involvement in revolutionary political activities that resulted in jail life and a lot of criminal cases. Once that phase was over, I took a diploma in veterinary science and became a livestock inspector in animal husbandry department under govt of kerala. I have been continuing my study and practice of homeopathy all through these years. Since CCH act came into force only in 1976, and it contained provisions allowing existing practitioners to continue, my homeopathic practice went smoothly in parallel with my government job. In 1987, co-operating with some local homeopaths and social activists, I started Kannur District Homeopathic Hospital Sociey, which established a chain of hospitals and homeopathic clinics in different parts of Kannur district. After a few years I had to leave the society for some political reasons, and I established a 100 bedded well equipped homeopathic hospital in Taliparamba, employing a number of prominent homeopaths. That was ended up as a financial disaster for me due to many reasons, including my lack of skills as a money manager, and I was compelled to close down my dream project with in a short period. I lost huge money I invested, lost my reputation, and it pulled me into a debt trap. I learned a lot of valuabl lessons from this failure- about life, human psychology, relationships, and above all, about myself. I realized failure is the greatest teacher, if you are prepared learn from it. I learned how will power and determination to win will help us come back into life as a phoenix from our own ashes. I learned, one does not fail unless he stops fighting and accepts failure. My failure and the hardships that followed has moulded my personality in such a way that I can now withstand any disaster and fight back. I tell you, you will not know what life really is, unless you miserably fail at least once in your life. By this time, I left my government job also, and settled as a full time homeopathic practitioner. By this practice, I could repair my earlier financial losses, and establish well in life. It was during this period that I felt the need of developing a simple and user-friendly homeopathic software, that resulted in the evolution of SIMILIMUM, which was later upgraded into SIMILIMUM ULTRA. Similimum Ultra was well accepted by the profession, and it collected good revenues which continues even today. I stopped my practice a few years back , and concentrated in the study and research activities to evolve scientifically viable explanations to the so-called riddles of homeopathy. This unrelenting study resulted in MIT or Molecular Imprints Therapeutics, which provides a scientific and rational explanation for homeopathy. I started a homeopathic discussion group on facebook called HOMEOPATHY FOR TOTAL CURE, which has more than 35000 homeopaths as members. By this work on facebook, I could establish close relationship with many homeopaths around the world. It goes on. I could successfully convert facebook as my office and work place, from where I propagate my MIT ideas, co-ordinate my works for homeopathic community, and sell my Similimum Ultra Software. My years of hardwork in search of HOW HOMEOPATHY WORKS ultimately resulted in the publication of a book titled REDEFINING HOMEOPATHY (3000 pages, 3 volumes, hard bound, Rs 6000), in which I have compiled my articles regarding my scientific explanations of basic principles of homeopathy. These ideas are called MIT or MOLECULAR IMPRINTS THERAPEUTICS. MIT is now included in the syllabus of MD (HOM) course of prestigious DY PATIL DEEMED UNIVERSITY, PUNE, INDIA. Research department of SARADA KRISHNA HOMEOPATHIC COLLEGE, Kulashekharam, Tamilnadu, India, the only NAC accredited homeopathy college in India, has recently taken up certain reserch projects for proving the scientific explanations proposed by MIT. Based on MIT perspective of homeopathy, I had developed an MIT PROTOCOL for scientific homeopathy, and initiated a project for establishing a chain of MIT NETWORK CLINICS all over India, where MIT PROTOCOL will be practiced. More over, I have developed a whole range of 351 MIT FORMULATIONS, which are disease-specific combinations of post-avogadro diluted homeopathy drugs. NOW I AM IN 71st YEAR OF MY LIFE, AND STILL LOOKING FOR NEW HORRIZONS!
