Presence of Nanoparticles in Homeopathic Medicines: Study

KOCHI: A research conducted at the Mahatma Gandhi University, Kottayam, has proved that homeopathic medicines contain nanoparticles that are vital for medical treatment.

The study conducted by Dr E S Rajendran at the Nano-Science Lab of the university, using ‘Aurum Metallicum (6C to CM potency)’, has conclusively proved that homeopathic dilutions contain nanoparticles.The dilutions were studied under high-resolution transmission electronic microscope (HRTEM) and energy dispersive spectrometer (EDS). “We are in a position to conclusively prove the presence of nanoparticles in all the high dilutions of homeopathic drugs,” Dr Rajendran said at a press conference here on Monday.A similar study by Dr Jayesh Bellare of IIT-B had also demonstrated the presence of nanoparticles in homeopathic medicines. Dr Jayesh is expected to present the report of the study at the two-day World Homeopathy Summit to be held in Mumbai from April 11, 2015.
