Physico-chemical and UV/VIS measurements of UHD solutions of water, potentized water and different potencies of organic substances
Introduction: Conventional science regards the study of UHD (highly homeopathically potentized) solutions as pseudo-science. However, an increasing number of rigorous scientific investigations demonstrate differences in physicochemical and physical characteristics of such solutions. Strictly chemically regarded, they correspond to highly distilled water. Our research team developed a system of physicochemical and UV spectrographic measurements, whereby the differences may be consistently confirmed with high statistical significance. Material and methods: For measurement of the physicochemical parameters, we used pH, electrical conductivity, and ORP sensors. For UV/VIS spectroscopy measurements, we used a Macherey-Nagel spectrophotometer. For UHD research, we used two batches of substances: Russian (R) and Brazilian (B). In R, distilled water (W) was used for dilutions and potencies as follows: potentized water (W cH9), potentized dilution of antibodies to interferon-gamma (Abs IFNγ cH9), the same original substance in the form of a mixture of potencies (Abs IFNγ cH12, cH30, cH50, shortly Abs IFNγ mix). Furthermore, we prepared higher potencies of the substances (supplementary potentiation) in a specially prepared solution and measured their characteristics. In B, the solution was used for further dilutions and potencies as follows: potentized water (W cH1) and Glyphosate potencies (Gly cH6 => cH8, cH30 => cH 32, and cH200 => cH 202). Results: UV-VIS spectroscopy (R): indirect measurements of liquids show statistically significant differences between all substances, except between water W and W cH9 at 260 nm. Physicochemical measurements: R: indirect measurements demonstrated statistical difference only in pH (Abs IFNγ mix towards all others). After potentiation, we obtained a more conspicuous picture with many statistical differences in conductivity and ORP. A difference between water and potentized water has also been demonstrated. B: the measurements demonstrated statistical differences mainly in pH between Gly cH8 and the rest and between Gly cH202 and W cH1. Conclusion: UV/VIS at wavelength 260 nm Abs IFNγ mix discloses a pattern similar to EZ water at 270 nm. By additional potentiation and with physicochemical measurements, we obtained higher statistical differences than in the original dilutions. In contrast, UV/VIS spectroscopy showed more conspicuous results without additional potentiation. However, the very act of succussion becomes very distinct.
