We have carried out systematic studies to investigate the effect on supercontinuum generation in water using 40 fs laser pulses when doped with Homeopathic medicines. We perform these studies using five series of medications with different levels of dilution (10-30 to 10-100000). We measured supercontinuum spectra that span from 400-1050 nm. We monitored the area under the curve in the range 450-750 nm for each sample at a fixed incident laser energy. Our observations indicate that the yield of supercontinuum generation, in water containing Homeopathic medicine is significantly different from that obtained in water containing plain ethanol.
Ultra dilution is the most basic fundamental principal of Homoeopathic medicines. Clinically it retains some properties of the solute in the solvent even after the Avogadro Barrier, i.e. Dilution of 10 30 and beyond, which in Homoeopathy is called “power 30 c”. The question that we are trying to answer is if there is any way to test the “presence” of the “properties” in the solute.
Our findings of this fundamental research project will certainly help to answer this complex question.
Our results will open new vistas for both theoretical and experimental investigation. Further experimentation is being planned which can lead to better understanding of the phenomenon that leads to altering of optical properties of water.
These findings have far reaching implications in exploring potential of homoeopathic medicines. It proves beyond doubt that homoeopathic dilution is definitely different than the solvent. It is interesting to note that white light generated by homoeopathic medicines from different kingdoms are different. Also they differ from potency to potency. This experiment will open up pathway to identify dilutions in terms of, it belongs to which kingdom, which family and which potency.
The project is being carried out by eminent scientists of T.I.F.R. in collaboration with Spandan Holistic Institute of Applied Homoeopathy.
