Summary paragraphs of chapters
The Historical Perspective
In this chapter I talk about the evolution of the idea of the Law of
Similars [Like cures Like] which is the basic idea underlying Homeopathic therapy and philosophy starting from Hippocrates and
evolving to Hahnemann, Hering, Clarke, Boericke, etc. I explain how
Hahnemann arrived at this Potentization method of homeopathic remedies. I also talk about how Homeopathy in coming about in that
time and period of history was really not helped by the evolution of
medical science and its specialization or reductionist philosophy and
how this idea even to the present day is very much against Homeopathic philosophy and practice.
Chapter II. Reductionism…Holism….Reductionism…..Holism
In this chapter I talk about the definitions of holism and reductionism and how they pertain to Homeopathy, to present scientific and medical thought. In this vein I explain why present medical research and its reductionist framework does not provide a good research environment for the homeopathic remedy, etc. For example, double blind clinical trials which have been used by conventional medicine to test the therapeutic efficacy of conventional drugs on patients, as opposed to placebos cannot be used in their present format to test homeopathic remedies. Because of the very nature of the homeopathic remedy this is not possible unless these double blind clinical trials can be revised to accommodate the different nature of the homeopathic remedies.
Hahnemann’s Potentization Procedure
In this chapter I talk about the nature of homeopathic remedies. I define the qualitative and quantitative differences between them and
conventional drugs. I describe in general terms Hahnemann’s Potentization Procedure and how through the Clinical Provings of
these remedies Hahnemann and his colleagues arrived at the pathological clinical picture for each remedy and made up the Materia
Medicas and Repertories.
The Homeopathic Interview of Patients
In this chapter I give a general questionnaire which represents the type of medical interview, the type of question, areas of the patient’s life the homeopath delves into when asking the patient how his pathology started, how and with what symptoms it developed, etc.
The Homeopathic Remedy
In this chapter I talk about the wavelike nature of the homeopathic remedy. I talk about how homeopathic remedies give back to the organism a certain electromagentic or magnetic field or frequency and how this is similar to the SQUID therapy Prof. Anninos has done. I also talk about the Delmeter, a prototype machine that can be used to measure resistance/conductivity of the homeopathic remedy and some pilot experiments done with the NTUA prototype that showed the
homeopathic remedy to be different than double distilled water, and showed that the
different potencies of the same remedy to have difference resistance/conductivity values. I also
mention the results of the Differential Scanning Calorimetry experiment done at the
Chemistry Dept. of the Kapodistrian University of Athens showing how heat breaks down the homeopathic spatio-temporal patterns or
information in the water, water/ethanol dilution. I go into the superposition principle and how the homeopathic remedy works via constructive and destructive interference in promoting first a
therapeutic exacerbation and then through destructive interference annihilates the present pathological fields or spatio-temporal patterns bringing the organism back to a healthier steady state via
Introduction to the Delinick Model of the Organism and its Pathology
In this chapter I introduce a biophysics model of the organism and its pathology. This model is conducive to explaining why when the correct homeopathic remedy or electromagnetic field or frequency is given we have a destructive interference occurring whereby the present
pathological symptoms or pathological steady state is annihilated. This model also explains why with conventional drugs we may have development of more serious pathological conditions, how pathological symptoms are viewed as stabilization of new self-organization phenomena, etc.
Water, the Missing Link:
The Potentization of the Homeopathic Remedy In this chapter I talk about the scientific explanation of the potentization process. How does the plant, mineral or organic substance transfer its information to the water, water/ethanol molecules during potentization? How does this information still maintain itself, perpetuating even a greater
electromagnetic field or increased resistance, even after Avogadro’s number? I talk about how the water, water/ethanol molecules change bond angle configurations, how the dilution undergoes a type of superconductivity process, how a water crystal lattice is formed and how a type of soliton wave of proton conductivity is maintained leading to new spatio-temporal patterns in a dilution kept far from equilibrium.
Water, the Missing Link
In this chapter I bring together the water element in the homeopathic remedy/dilution and the water element that is our cytoplasm and which flows through our microtubules. The microtubules are the primary site of action of the homeopathic remedies. It is also the microtubules where certain quantum level reactions between the environment, the organism and its genome, etc. can take place.
In this chapter I explain via the Superposition principle and through constructive and destructive interference how in providing the organism with the same electromagnetic or magnetic field/frequency we can promote exacerbation and then annihilation of the present pathological steady state and bring the organism back via hysteresis to a previous healthier steady state.
A review of Chapters VI to IX
In this chapter I bring together in summary form what I talked about in chapters VI to IX.
An Modern Interpretation of the Miasms
In this chapter I talk about Miasms. I give a modern definition of miasms according to the model I have proposed and Hahnemann’s understanding of the
Frequently Asked Questions
In this chapter I try to answer the most frequently asked questions that patients, other medical doctors, etc. have of Homeopathy.
What the Patient must know about Homeopathic Therapy.
In this chapter I try to answer all the possible questions, the patient who is considering or undergoing homeopathic treatment, can have about homeopathic therapy.
The Present State of Homeopathy
In this chapter I try to give a picture of what is going on in Homeopathy today. In this sense I write about the legal bodies that promote
Homeopathic research, education and legislation governing homeopathic practices. The societies that I talk about are the Liga Medicorum Homeopathica Internationalis and the Euroepan and International Committees of Homeopathy. I alto talk in this chapter of what the percentage of the people in different countries undergo homeopathic treatment.
