A Cantharis potency acts on heat exposed bovine serum albumin as revealed by FT-IR spectroscopy
Keywords:High dilution, BSA, Homeopathic drug, Cantharis, Water
In a series of experiments we have demonstrated that high dilution of homeopathic drugs produces distinct effects on plants and animals in-vivo through the medium of water. High dilutions (HDs) of a drug prepared by serial dilution with a solvent medium 1:100, followed by mechanical agitation in several steps are called potencies. Water molecules play an important role on protein structure and function. We focused our observation on water molecules associated with BSA. High dilution (HD) of a homeopathic drug is thought to be specific water structure which produces therapeutic effects on man. HDs also produce effects on animals, plants and even proteins in aqueous solution. What is the primary target of HDs on organisms or on protein? The present study addresses this question. Cantharis 30 cH, a homeopathic potency used for burn injuries, has been tested on bovine serum albumin (BSA) in-vitro. The protein has been exposed to heat at 750C for 10 mins, cooled down to room temperature and then treated with Cantharis 30 cH. The treatment was done by two methods, direct and indirect through water. The results from both the methods are almost similar. The treated and untreated protein solutions were analysed by Fourier Transform Infra-Red (FT-IR) spectroscopy. The treatment effect was evident on water molecules associated with BSA. The results indicate that Cantharis 30 cH interacts with water molecules which in turn influence BSA. It is concluded that the homeopathic potency converts first water structure which then affects the protein. Based on the results on this experiment we can assumes that the primary target of all homeopathic potencies is water which constitutes the major component of all living organisms. All biomolecules are suspended in water.
