Students Can Take Up Some ‘Small’ But Important Research Projects On Potentized Drugs

When I posted an opinion poll to know how homeopaths think about the effects of certain physical influences such as exposure to sunlight, ionizing radiations etc on the medicinal properties of potentized drugs, I was shocked to note that we have no any idea regarding even such preliminary facts about our therapeutic tools. Everybody opines according to his whims and fancies. It is very much disappointing to know that homeopathic community has not even ‘researched’ on these primary questions. Everybody talk about ‘big research’ only. We know a lot about organon, miasms, similimum, vital force and such ‘big’ things, but know very little about ‘small’ things. It is really pathetic.

I would request scientific-minded professors of homeopathic medical colleges to guide their PG students to take up some research projects for answering some questions, which are very primary steps in the scientific understanding of our drugs.

Questions to be researched are: What are the effects of following influences on medicinal properties of homeopathic drugs potentized above 12c? 

1. Exposure to direct sunlight

2. Exposure to strong artificial light including fluorescent lights

3. High temperature

4. Refrigeration

5. Ionizing radiations

6. Exposure to strong magnetic fields

7. Exposing to perfumes, volatile oils, strong odors

8. Keeping near computers-mobile phones-electronic gadgets

9. Exposing to electric currents

10. Nearness of mobile towers

11. Violent shaking

Projects can be undertaken for comparative study of potentized drugs and control solutions(water-ethyl alcohol mixture) regarding following physical parameters:

1. Evaporation rates

2. Freezing points

3. Boiling points

4. Browninan motions

5. Viscosity and flow rates

6. Solvent properties

7. Refraction of light

8. Absorption of light

9. Transmission rates of sound

Outcomes of all these studies will be helpful in resolving the fundamental question- ‘what is the exact process involved in potentization”?

A word of caution: Never use commercial samples of potentized drugs for research studies. They are not so much reliable. We should prepare our own samples under strictly monitored conditions to ensure genuine potencies. Never use so-called ‘back potencies’ supplied by commercial manufacturers. We should start potentization from the crude samples themselves.

My interest in homeopathy happened very accidentally when I was only 20 years old UNDERGRADUATE ZOOLOGY student, 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.
