THE MORE A HOMEOPATH TALKS ABOUT “SINGLE DRUGS”, THE MORE HE DEMONSTRATES HIS UTTER LACK OF SCIENTIFIC KNOWLEDGE!
From scientific point of view of pharmaceutical chemistry, a DRUG is a biologically active chemical unit contained in a substance used as therapeutic agent. IT is the structure and properties of that chemical molecule that decides its medicinal properties and therapeutic actions.
If such a medicinal substance contains only ONE type of biologically active unit, it is a SINGLE drug. If it contains different types of biologically active units, it is a COMPOUND drug. It is obvious that most of the drugs we use in homeopathy – especially drugs of biological origin and complex minerals- contain diverse types of biologically active units, and hence they cannot be considered SINGLE drugs.
During DRUG PROVING, it is not the whole substance as a SINGLE unit that works upon the biological molecules in our body and produce symptoms. After entering the body, individual chemical molecules contained in the medicinal substance travels through our blood circulation to
different parts, bind to different biological targets according to their molecular affinity, and produce molecular ihibitions in assiciated biochemical pathways, which are expressed through diverse trains of subjective objective symptoms. Each separate groups of symptoms represent the molecular inhibitions produced by individual constituent molecules of the drug substance.
During the process of potentization, it is the individual constituent molecules that undergo
MOLECULAR IMPRINTIMG. As such, potentized drugs prepared from a SINGLE medicinal
substance will contain diverse types of molecular imprints representing the diverse types of individual constituent molecules contained in that substance. It means, most of the potentized drugs we use in homeopathy are not SINGLE drugs as homeopaths falsely believe, COMPOUND drugs that contain diverse types of MOLECULAR IMPRINTS which act as separate individual active units.
IF you still cannot realize the meaninglessness and utter folly involved in talking about SINGLE DRUGS, it is the blindness caused by your dogmatic learning and lack of scientific awareness.
Actually, the concept of SINGLE DRUGS in homeopathy evolved from
the primitive state of scietific knowlede available to our masters during the historical period they lived and developed the theoretical system of homeopathy.
