Homeopathy is a therapeutic method discovered by Dr. Samuel Hahnemann and is being practiced around the world. The validity of the science of homeopathy was questioned due to the lack of evidence of any material content in its ultra-high dilutions. The current paper as well as the earlier research papers of the author established the presence of large number of nanoparticles and quantum dots in all scales of dilutions of homeopathic drugs. The body of evidence presented are sufficient to establish the fact that homeopathy is not a placebo therapy but a nanomedicine.
The body of evidence provided by the author and the other researchers are conclusive to prove that ‘homeopathy is nanomedicine’. These study results effectively nullify the burden on homeopaths to prove the scientific basis of homeopathic drug potencies and their therapeutic action. As the nanopharmacological nature of homeopathic potencies and the ability of homeopathic NPs and QDs in drug solutions modify the gene expressions are well proved , it is imperative to define that homeopathy is truly a nanomedicine. This changes the definition of homeopathy from a dynamic medicine to a material medicine, which is active at intra cellular biologically active nano units. This will be a revolutionary revelation in the field of medicine as well as general science. Therefore, further research in medicine should focus on these two related capabilities of homeopathic drug potencies, viz.
- Nanopharmacological nature of homeopathic ultra-high dilutions
- Gene regulatory capabilities of NPs and QDs in homeopathic ultra-high dilutions.
