Nobel Scientist Discovers Scientific Basis of Homeopathy
by Tony Isaacs
(The Best Years in Life) At a time when the British Medical Association was calling for an end to national funding for homeopathy and detractors were describing it as "nonsense on stilts", a Nobel prize-winning scientist made a discovery that suggests that homeopathy does have a scientific basis after all. Nobel Prize winning French virologist Professor Luc Montagnier shocked fellow Nobel prize-winners and the medical establishment by telling them that he had discovered that water has a memory that continues even after many dilutions.
Until Montagnier's research, the bulk of mainstream doctors and scientist had maintained that there was no scientific way that multiple dilutions used in homeopathy could possibly work. In part, such views stemmed from lack of understanding. In larger part, such views likely stemmed from a desire to stem the rising popularity of homeopathy and eliminate it as a competition to mainstream medicine - much the same as happened in the United States a century ago.
One of the foundations of homeopathy
maintains that the potency of a
substance is increased with its
dilution. Montagnier discovered that
solutions containing the DNA of
viruses and bacteria "could emit low
frequency radio waves" and that such
waves influence molecules around
them, turning them into organized
structures. The molecules in turn
emit waves and Montagnier found that
the waves remain in the water even
after it has been diluted many
times. To a lay person, that may not
mean much, but to a scientist is
highly suggests that homeopathy may
have a scientific basis.
The latter half of the 19th century was homeopathy's heyday in the United States. Regular physicians could hardly compete. By 1902 homeopaths did seven times the business of allopaths and there were 15,000 practicing homeopathic physicians in the US. During the 1849 cholera epidemic, homeopaths from Cincinnati kept rigorous records showing that they lost only 3% of their patients, while allopathy lost 16 to 20 times more.
Many highly accomplished individuals
past and present have chosen
homeopathy as their therapy of
choice, including several U.S.
Presidents. Many of America's
literary greats advocated for and
often wrote about homeopathy,
including Ralph Waldo Emerson, Henry
Wadsworth Longfellow, Louisa May
Alcott, Nathaniel Hawthorne, and
Mark Twain - as did European greats
such as Goethe, Sir Arthur Conan
Doyle, Lord Alfred Tennyson, and
George Bernard Shaw.
