There is a wild propaganda going on, claiming that homeopathy medicine ASPIDOSPERMA is the GENUS EPIDEMICUS of current pandemic, and people are desperately running from store to store to get a bottle of this “miracle drug” to save their dear ones gasping for oxygen. They also recommend the use of Vanadium as an “oxygen supplier”.

It is claimed that a few drops of “mother tincture” of aspidosperma given twice or thrice for a few days will relieve the breathlessness, and will be helpful in curing the disease.

Problem underlying this claim as well as the propaganda is that homeopaths fail to understand  the difference between MOLECULAR forms and MOLECULAR IMPRINTS forms of drugs.

They also fail to remember the primary lesson that if a drug is found to  be GENUS EPIDEMIC for a disease, it will be administered only in potencies above 12c, and it is NEVER used in mother tincture form.

Crude drugs, mother Tinctures, Potencies below 12c and biochemic TRITURATIONS are MOLECULAR forms of drugs, since they contain molecules of drug substances.

Potencies above 12c or Post-avogadro dilutions do not contain drug molecules, but MOLECULAR IMPRINTS only.

We must not forget the fact that drug symptoms provided in our materia medica actually constitute the list of symptoms that are generated in healthy persons by the use of these drugs in crude form.  Indiscriminate long-term use of mother tinctures containing plant enzymes, poisonous alkaloids, glycosides and various other phyto-chemical ingredients is an  unpardonable  crime even if it is done in the name of homeopathy. The chemical molecules contained in these tinctures might give temporary relief  by nutritional supplementation, or by competitive relationship towards pathological  molecules due to their  conformational similarity. But it is evident from their symptomatologies  that those chemical molecules are capable of creating dangerous pathological molecular inhibitions in various bio-chemic channels in the organism.

We should never forget that the subjective and objective symptoms provided in our materia medica were createdby the molecular errors happened in healthy individuals during drug proving.

Regarding ASPIDOSPERMA, even though homeopaths enthusiastically quote “It stimulates the respiratory centers and increases the oxygen in the blood” from Boericke materia Medica, they conveniently ignore the following statement in Clarke’s materia Medica: “Hale says ASPIDOSPERMA produces in animals respiratory paralysis, slowed heart, and paralysis of extremities.”

Even though it is said in materia Medica that VANADIUM is an “oxygen carrier”, please understand, it is only a chemical property of Vanadium in its molecular form. Vanadium potentized above 12c will not contain any single molecule of Vanadium, and hence, it is totally irrational to expect Vanadium in potentized form to act as an “oxygen supplier”. The widely quoted statement from materia Medica “it increases amount of hemoglobin, also combines its oxygen with toxines and destroys their virulence” is actually applicable to molecular forms of Vanadium only. Vanadium 30 will not contain even a single molecule of Vanadium, and hence, this property cannot be attributed to vanadium 30.

Same time, vanadium in Molecular form is highly toxic, and it is not at all safe to use Vanadium in 3x or potencies below 12c. It is now well known that molecular forms of VANADIUM is a competitive inhibitor of various enzymes such as ATPases, alkaline and acid phosphatases, and protein-phosphotyrosine phosphatases, and hence, very dangerous if given in Molecular form.

Molecular forms of drugs act by the chemical properties of constituent molecules, whereas MOLECULAR IMPRINTS forms of drugs act by the conformational properties of Molecular imprints.

Since Molecular imprints cannot interfere in the normal interactions between biological molecules and their natural ligands, Molecular imprints forms of drugs cannot produce any short term or long term adverse effects.

On the other hand, Molecular forms of drugs can interact with biological molecules and produce inhibitions, and may cause harmful adverse effects. Even though mother Tinctures are considered Homeopathy drugs, they are no way different from allopathy drugs, when considered in terms of their active principles as well as biological mechanism of actions.

We know, many homeopathic practioners prescribe plenty of mother tinctures, low potency preparations and biochemic TRITURATIONS. They consider it genuine homeopathy, as they manufactured by homeopathy drug companies, and bear the label Homeopathic Medicines. They ignore the fact that mother Tinctures are never prescribed according to similia principles, or on the basis of totality of symptoms.

Mother tinctures and other Molecular forms of drugs may relieve some of the symptoms, due to their allopathic actions. But they are not only un-homeopathic in actions, but chances of emerging new pathological conditions due to them is a reality.

Homeopaths should understand, it is ideal to treat patients using potencies above  12c, which do not contain any trace of the drug molecules of the original drug. If our selection of drug is correct, there is no any chance of failure in such a protocol.

Actually, mother tinctures will have to be considered as identical to Ayurveda, Allopathy or Herbal treatment. Those homeopaths who indulge in excessive use of mother tinctures, without bothering  about their constituent drug  molecules and their adverse long term impacts on the organism, are more hazardous to human health than our allopathic counterparts. I humbly request them to think over.

For example, from our materia medica works, it may be understoodthat most of  those people who had participated in proving of  Hydrastis Canadensis developed symptoms of gastric ulcer and hyperacidity along with many other deep seated pathological conditions. Doctors who administer large doses of Hydrastis Tincture to relive gastric symptoms as part of homoeopathic treatment should note this point . Of course, we may get temporary relief, by the way of competitive relationships with pathological molecules, due to conformational similarity of drug molecules and pathogenic molecules. Prolonged use of Hydrastis Tincture not only produce the symptoms mentioned in the materia medica,  but may even induce very serious genetic errors to happen. If  hydrastis is the similimum for the patient, it will be effective in high potencies. This is real homeopathy.

Please do not be provoked when I say that those who give Vanadium 3x for supplying oxygen,  Passiflora for inducing sleep, Rauwolfia for lowering blood pressure and Syzijium for high blood sugar in their tincture form, are not practicing ideal Homeopathy even if they may be well known homeopaths.

No homeopath with some common sense, who had carefully read the material medica of Alfalfa will dare to prescribe it as tonics to improve the appetite and general health of innocent children. It is evident from its symptomatology that Alfalfais capable of producing diabetes, bulimia, and upsetting the normal functioning of kidneys.

We should remember that there was no exact knowledge regarding the long term evil effects of many drugs, when many of them were proved and their materia medica prepared. There was least knowledge about the genetic disorders they were likely to produce. It is found in Boecricke Materiamedica that Arsenic Bromide Mother Tincture is indicated for Diebetes. No physician with scientific awareness will even think of prescribing it today. Who will now dare to prescribe Ars iod 3x, Iodum 3x, Sulphur Q, or various compounds of Mercury and Lead only because they are found in our text books of Materia Medica?

We know a lot of homeopaths who make their patients consume for prolonged periods, the mother tinctures of several drugs, including various patented combinations flooding the market in the name of Homeopathy. How can Homeopaths prescribe them without any prick of conscience? Those who love homoeopathy should take urgent initiative to prevent such tendencies either through awareness programs and campaigns, or through stringent legislational procedures.

Since crude drugs and mother tinctures contain drug molecules that can act upon biological molecules, they can also bind to various biological targets in the organism. Obviously, there is always chance for creation of new molecular inhibitions and drug-induced pathologies when we use crude drugs and mother tinctures. That is the draw back of using mother tinctures even if they are similimum.

Advantage of drugs potentized above 12c, also known as post-avogadro Dilutions,   is that they do not contain any drug molecule, but only molecular imprints, which are only supra-molecular clusters of water and alcohol molecules. They can act upon pathogenic molecules only, not upon biological molecules. As such, potentized drugs cannot do any further harm to organism.

That is why MIT says use of mother Tinctures and other Molecular forms of drugs cannot be considered genuine Homeopathy. To be genuinely homeopathic regarding active principles as well as biological mechanism of action, we should use only post-avogadro diluted drugs.

SIMILIMUM ULTRA Homeopathic Software I am not a scientist, academician, scholar, professional homeopath or anybody with 'big credentials', but an old lay man, a retired government servant, who accidentally happened to fall into the deep waters of the great ocean of homeopathic knowledge during his fiery teenage years, and was destined to live a whole life exploring the mysteries of that wonderful world with unending enthusiasm. 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.


  1. I too have the same thoughts but others are not accepting.
    In my observations moleculer imprints are curing diseases.
    I accept that
    Mother tincture
    Bio medicinesand
    And flower remedies are not as per homeopathic principlrs
