High Potency Homeopathic Medicine Affect Cancer Cells
Hard on the heels of the evidence for the effects of high dilutions published in the current volume of Homeopathy; (see 25 January news item); comes yet more evidence for the effect of high dilution homeopathic medicine in a study published in the high impact; highly respected ‘International Journal of Oncology’.
Furthermore, the study reveals that certain high potency homeopathic remedies have preferentially elevated cytotoxic effects on breast adenocarcinoma cells; compared with cells derived from normal breast epithelium. However, the experiments were conducted in triplicate and repeated at least twice in each case of a remedy.
The homeopathic medicine tested included:
Carcinosin, 30C; Conium maculatum, 3C; Phytolacca decandra, 200C; and Thuja occidentalis, 30C. However, the strongest effects were found from Carcinosin and Phytolacca; remedies that are well documented in the homeopathic literature for their beneficial effects in patients with cancer.
Nonetheless, the researchers concluded; “the ultra-diluted natural homeopathic remedies investigated in this study offer the promise of being effective preventive; and/or therapeutic agents for breast cancer and worthy of further study”.

Objective Measures Show Positive Effects of Homeopathic Medicine on Disturbed Sleep
Moreover, an article published in the respected journal Sleep Medicine; shows that two homeopathic medicine known for their impact on sleep patterns in susceptible human subjects; have positive effects as measured by objective measuring procedures called polysomnographic recordings.
Polysomnographic recordings involves various sleep study measurements. Furthermore, this includes monitoring many body functions, including; brainwaves (EEG); eye movements (EOG); muscle activity or skeletal muscle activation (EMG); as well as heart rhythm (ECG).
However, while this is is not a study involving individualized patients prescribing, it does show the positive effects of two remedies known; to have a significant relevance to sleep disturbances. Nonetheless, it also builds on earlier experiments in animals; using the same two remedies that produced positive results.
