The scientific concepts of ‘molecular imprints’ as the active principles of potentized drugs promoted by MIT should not be confused with the unscientific concept of ‘water memory’ promoted by ‘energy medicine’ theoreticians.
According to MIT, ‘molecular imprints’ are hydrogen-bonded supramolecular nanostructures of water and ethyl alcohol, carrying the three-dimensional ‘spacial’ or conformational ‘imprints’ of individual drug molecules once dissolved and subsequently removed by serial dilutions and succussions. This process of ‘molecular imprinting’ involves the formation and dissolution of a peculiar kind of ‘host-guest’ complexes of drug molecules and vehicle molecules, a process well explained by supra-molecular chemistry.
First point to be remembered is that the molecular imprints are ‘material’ formations of water and ethyl alcohol molecules- nothing ‘dynamic’ or ‘spiritual’ in it.
Second point to be understood is that drug substance is not imprinted as whole unit. It is the ‘individual’ constituent chemical molecules of drug substance that undergo molecular imprinting.
Third point to be remembered is that the molecular imprints retain only the ‘conformational’ or ‘spacial’ details of drug molecules used for imprinting. These spacial ‘memory’ is retained as three-dimensional nanocavities that are similar to ‘engravings’. Molecular imprints do not retain any chemical properties of drug molecules.
Fourth point to be remembered is that molecular imprints representing each individual chemical molecule exist in potentized drugs as individual units without interacting each other,
Fifth point to be remembered is that molecular imprints act as individual units by selectively binding upon specific pathogenic molecules having conformational affinity when applied as therapeutic agents.
Sixth point to be remembered is that molecular imprints can act only upon pathogenic molecules that have conformations ‘similar’ to those of original drug molecules used for imprinting.
Seventh point to be remembered is that molecular imprints are not ‘mimics’ or ‘mirror images’ of original drug molecules as commonly believed, but their ‘spacial negatives’, exactly similar to thumb impressions formed in a wax matrix.
Eighth point to be remembered is that, in the absence of pathogenic molecules with conformational affinity, potentized drug have no any properties or actions other than those of water and ethyl alcohol.
ACTUALLY, THE ‘DYNAMIC’ CONCEPT OF ‘WATER MEMORY’ EVOLVED FROM PSEUDO-SCIENTIFIC INTERPRETATION OF A PECULIAR OBJECTIVE PHENOMENON RELATED WITH WATER, DUE TO THE LACK OF SCIENTIFIC KNOWLEDGE OF SUPRA-MOLECULAR CHEMISTRY AND MOLECULAR IMPRINTING INVOLVED IN IT.
