The scientific sessions at the recently held World Homoeopathy Summit in Mumbai have proven that homoeopathy medicines are nano materials and they can become remedies for various kinds of conventional and emerging infectious diseases.
The sessions have also avoided all anxieties with regard to the action and efficacy of homoeopathic medicines in human bodies affected by germs of various diseases.
Twenty-six scientists including molecular biologists, engineers, physicists, immunologists, pharmacologists, chemists, nanotechnologists, zoologists, homoeopaths and conventional doctors from some of the premium universities presented their papers on latest researches related to homoeopathy concepts.
Prof Jayesh Bellare, head of department of Chemical Engineering at Indian Institute of Technology, Mumbai, presented his paper on nanotechnology of homoeopathic medicines and demonstrated that these medicines in high dilutions retain the nano-particles of the source material.
Prof M Rajendran, Principal, Vinayaka Mission Homoeopathic Medical College at Salem in Tamil Nadu, who worked at the Centre for nano science and engineering, presented his study revealing the hidden secrets of homeopathic potencies using High Resolution Transmission Electron Microscope (HRTEM) and Energy Dispersive Spectroscopy (EDS) on Aurum Metalicum 6C – CM potencies and FESM & EDS studies of Carbo Vegitabilis 6 C – CM potencies.
Dr Arun Jamkar, an onco-surgeon and vice chancellor of Maharashtra University of Health Sciences, Nasik, made special comments on the future of nanotechnology and homeopathy.
Prof G D Jindal, an electrical engineer and Dr Akalpita Paranjape, former scientist at Bhabha Atomic Research Centre, demonstrated measurability of the effects of homeopathic dilutions on autonomous nervous system in humans with an electrical device. Prof P K Joshi, physicist at Tata Institute of Fundamental Research, and Dr Praful Barvalia, a renowned homoeopath from Mumbai, demonstrated Enhanced Supercontinuum Generation in water in the presence of ultra-dilute solutions using laser beams, in samples containing high dilutions of homoeopathic medicines.
Prof N C Sukul, an eminent zoologist and scientist from West Bengal, in his presentation on Variation in Free and Bound Water Molecules in Different Homoeopathic Potencies, demonstrated the difference in the spectra between different potencies of the same medicine (Sulphur 30C, 200C, 1M) using Fourier Transform Infrared Spectroscopy.
Dr Gaurisankar Sa, Senior Professor of Molecular Medicine, Bose Institute, Kolkata demonstrated regression of cancer tumours in rats with homoeopathic medicines. He simultaneously investigated the detail of molecular mechanism underlying drug-induced tumour regression. This study was conducted in collaboration with the Central Council for Research in Homoeopathy, Government of India.
Prof Praveen Kumar, Head of the Department, Practice of Medicine, JSPS Government Homoeopathic Medical College in Hyderabad demonstrated the inhibition of Reverse Transcriptase enzyme by high dilution of snake venom (Crotalus Horridus), which could potentially lead to inhibition of multiplication of HIV, hepatitis B and Ebola virus, through a paper on their in-vitro study conducted at Indian Institute of Chemical Technology, Hyderabad.
In a joint study carried out by Dr Rajesh Shah, a renowned homoeopath and researcher from Mumbai and Dr Sadhana Sathaye, Associate Professor, Pharmacology, Institute of Chemical Technology, Mumbai demonstrated the efficacy of homoeopathic dilutions as anti-inflammatory medicine, at par with diclofenac, in animal model.
Dr Rajesh Shah presented results of a clinical trial with a newly prepared homoeopathic HIV nosode that reduced the viral load of HIV patients and increased the CD4 count. The study also highlighted the development of latest technology and standardization of nosodes.
Prof Tapas Kundu of Motiwala Homoeopathic Medical College, Nasik who worked along with Dr K Ghosh, Director, National Institute of Immunohaematology, presented paper on 294 cases of acute bleeding in haemophilia patients and demonstrated the efficacy of homoeopathy in haemophilia.
