Good day to you all.Just found this site its fantastic, I have been suffering from IBS for about 18 mths now and never realised a place like this existed.Anyway, my post was to recomend Homeopathy as a potential aliviator of symptoms to you guys.I have been seeing one for about 6 months now and although I still have bad days they are much less bad than they were. Still have to be careful etc, however it just takes the edge off things. the other bonus is it is all natural and non addictive. I also find it a safe place to chat openly anbout things that are not easy to talk about.Hope this may help a little.Matt

Matt,Stick around. I have a lot to say on this subject. I tried almost everything to get rid of my IBS and nothing worked for more than a day or two. I got curious about Homeopathy several years ago but I did NOT think it could possibly work. I thought that extremely low doses of something would be completely useless. --and then when I found out that some of the remedies had no molecules of the active ingredient at all i became convinced that it was a scam.Turns out that I was wrong.============================================(the below link is a picture of the graph of the D2O the lithium and the sodium solutions) http://www.newscientist.com/misc/popup_ns....id=ns99993817F1 http://www.vhan.nl/documents/Rey.thermoluminescence.pdf HTML version of the above link on thermoluminescence Abstract Ultra-high dilutions of lithium chloride and sodium chloride (10 −30 g cm −3 ) have been irradiated by X-rays and gamma-rays at 77 K, then progressively rewarmed to room temperature. During that phase, their thermoluminescence has been studied and it was found that, despite their dilution beyond the Avogadro number, the emitted light was specific of the original salts dissolved initially. More remarkable to our eyes is the fact that, by far, lithium chloride demonstrates a stronger hydrogen bond suppressing "ghost" effect which could be related to the larger size of the lithium ion.This modifcation remains even when the initial molecules have disappeared and the effect is the same at different irradiation doses (0.4-19 kGy) and for different radiant sources (X-rays, gamma rays). As a working hypothesis, we believe that this phenomenon results from a marked structural change in the hydrogen bond network initiated at the onset by the presence of the dissolved ions and maintained in the course of the dilution process, probably thanks to the successive vigorous mechanical stirrings.--------------------------------Loose translation - polar solvents have the capacity for memory or information storage.Dr Mercola explains the significance of Louis Rey's Thermoluminesence Experiment ===============================================My holistically oriented Medical Doctor recommended that I try it last year. It was last October that i had my first appointment. within 48 hours of my remedy I had all of my nausea, toxic/sick feeling and irritability eliminated. I was plagued with these symptoms for 6 or 7 years and nothing really helped. mass quantities of antibacterial/fungal herbs reduced it to some degree but still left the bulk of it in place.The whole experience completely blew me away. The homeopath was working at the pace of a snail with me so i hired a new one. the next remedy did not do all that much for me, but the remedy after that was sulphur 200C. i started spewing diarrhea the next morning, both my eyes became inflamed with broken blood vessels and I developed a rash that lasted for 3 months, but my 20 year IBS nightmare pretty much ended at that point.i can not give all the credit to homeopathy because i did do other things along the way such as heavy metal chelation, 9 months of high levels of antibacterial/fungal/parasitic herbs, i was also using large quantities of Dr D's human strain probiotics which I consider to be a superior to any others that I have ever used, I also tried individualized chinese herbal medicine, acupuncture, a standardized chinese formula, and a few other things.-- but it was homeopathy that did the trick. (Flux will be in here shortly to tell me I am nuts.)

By the way, to those who think it is placebo. why did the first remedy only work on my toxic/sick feeling and not the IBS. why did the 2nd remedy not work all that great, but the 3rd remedy give me the relief that I had been in search of for almost 2 decades?============================================= The distinguished Italian physicist Emilio del Giudici has set forth a theory that helps explain homeopathy's mode of therapeutic action.

KelAs you said some remedies ahve worked better than others.My homeopath explained that they have to break it down into sections to work on each area. (i.e. my stress levels, D or C etc) I know there are sceptics out there and for me it hasnt sent it away for ever, but it has made life a lot better.

Well to FluxWe dont know it all, if we did none of us would be suffering the way we are. I personally have found homeopathy helps with my IBS, therefore I will continue to use it and am happy to tell others of my experience.I do not class this as posting misinformation for melicious reasons and am offended that you may think that it is.Matt

Angelo, via Cintia 80126, Naples, Italy. elia###chemistry.unina.it==========================================Biologische Medizin/Heft 1/February 2004Professor Karen Nieber, head of the institute for pharmacy at Leipzig University, set about proving that homeopathy does not work and at the most can be explained by the so-called placebo effect. It was whilst looking for a test arrangement which totally excluded any placebo effect that she came up with the following idea: she placed a rat intestines in a nutrient solution and fixed it using organic threads to a sensor in order to measure the reduction of the intestines through contraction. She then added a stimulant to the nutrient solution, which caused a strong contraction of the rat intestines.Professor Karen Nieber, as a pharmacologist, expected that the treatment with a homeopathic agent with a potenz above C12 would have no effect against the enterospasms, since there are no more active agents present above this potenz. In Leipzig they then added Belladonna D90 to the nutrient solution with the rat intestines cramped through the stimulant they had added and lo and behold, the enterospasms ceased immediately, the measuring device registered the relaxation of the intestines.=====================================The research proves that homeopathic dilutions of Belladonna do have an influence on the motility of the gastrointestinal system. Influence is apparent in ACh- and SP-induced contractions. Contractions triggered by other kinds of signals (histamine on H1-receptors, K+-depolarisation) are not influenced by homeopathic Belladonna. This tells us, that Belladonna apparently does not have effect on the smooth muscle itself, but on the nerval mechanisms of communication.The effect of the high potencies of Belladonna cannot be due to the effects of the material substance of Belladonna. It is possible, that by the processes of homeopathic potentization, structure and dynamics of the liquid vehicle of the medicine are modified leading to a physico-chemiclal influence on mechanisms of communication.

Chemist Jan Enberts of the University of Groningen in the Netherlands is more cautious. "It's still a totally open question," he says. "To say the phenomenon has biological significance is pure speculation." But he has no doubt Samal and Geckeler have discovered something new. "It's surprising and worrying," he says. ======================================= http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/entrez/query.f...3&dopt=Abstract ================================Kleijnen 1991British Medical Journal. 107 trials. Criteria-based meta-analysis.  77% are positive  The higher the scientific merit of the study, the more likely it is to show homoeopathy as superior to placebo. The evidence presented in this review would probably be sufficient for establishing homoeopathy as a regular treatment for certain conditions.Boissel 1996Report for European Commission. 15 trials. Very strict inclusion criteria. Meta-analysis; data synthesis by combining the significance levels (p-values) for the primary outcomes from each trial.  Combined p value for the 15 trials was highly significant p=0.0002.  ' There is evidence that homeopathic medicine is more effective than placebo' .  Little evidence of publication bias.  Further high quality studies are needed.Linde 1997Lancet. 89 trials. Meta-analysis; data synthesis by combining the odds ratios.  Combined odds ratio 2.45 (95% CI 2.05, 2.93) in favour of homeopathy.  Odds ratio for 26 best quality studies was 1.66.  No evidence of significant publication bias.  The results are not compatible with the hypothesis that the clinical effects of homeopathy are completely due to placebo. ====================================== http://www.abc.net.au/dimensions/health/tr...pts/s370216.htm AMA (Australian Medical Association) calls for an "open mind" on homoeopathy AMA calls for an "open mind" on homeopathySome medical groups have found it difficult to accept evidence of homoeopathy's effectiveness because it appears to counter the current understanding of how drugs work. Many homoeopathic medicines are so dilute that no single molecule is left in the solution." My view is that the evidence should speak for itself ," says Dr Roberta Chow, a member of the Federal AMA's Advisory Committee on Complementary Medicine. "There have been other studies like this and if the BMJ is prepared to look at it perhaps we should be more open minded about it." Dr Chow also points to evidence involving the imprinting of water molecules that suggests a possible mechanism for how homoeopathy might work in the absence of molecules left in solution. Dr Chow says she is disappointed that there is a lack of official support for doctor training in complementary medicine at a time when it is so widely used in the community."For doctors to be ignorant of such things, we are not giving our patients the best management available, the best advice we can." Anna Salleh - ABC Science Online======================================In France 18 000 (32%) of all general practitioners, 700 veterinarians and 2 000 dentists (5%) prescribe homeopathic medicines to their patients. ======================================Use of homeopathy by physicians in Europe • 40% (18,000) of French M.D.s have treated 40% of the French public (Compl Med Research, May 1990, 4(2)4-8.) • 40 % of Dutch • 37% of British and 42% of family physicians refer to homeopaths (BMJ, 292, June 7,1986, 1498- 1500) • 20% of German • 20% of Scottish physicians have had training in homeopath======================================= http://www.entretiens-internationaux.mc/cambar.htm ConclusionThe presentation of the results obtained in our laboratory for more than 12 years has been divided into two chronological and methodological parts, considering previous in vivo and recent in vitro experiments.We have shown, in vivo in rodents, that high dilutions of mercury can significantly reduce the death rate induced by toxic doses of the same metal. Thus, the death rate of mice intoxicated with high doses of mercury was markedly reduced by a 7 day pretreatment with 10-30 M concentrations of that metal. For example, the death rate following a single injection of 5 mg/kg HgCl2 was 73.4% in control, 50% for those pretreated with 10-18 M and only 26.7% for those pretreated with 10-30 M.We found the same profile of response with our in vitro model in which 10-30 and 10-40 M dilutions provided a fair protection against cadmium induced cytotoxicity in renal tubular cell cultures. Similar results have recently been described for high dilutions of thymulin (Bastide et al., 1987), bursin (Youbicier-Simo et al.., 1993) and silica (Oberbaum et al.., 1992).======================================. http://www.entretiens-internationaux.mc/endler.htm Recent physics research has revealed that water dipoles may develop phase coherent oscillations through radiation coupling (del Giudice et al., 1988; del Giudice, 1994). It is proposed that these could be modulated as a time-ordered pattern of signals (Endler and Schulte, 1994) and induce the coherent wave propagation (electron propagation) in metals (Endler and Schulte, 1994). A further theory suggests that the phase coherent oscillations may originate information pattern formation through isotopicity effects in high dilutions (Endler and Schulte, 1994). The theoretical physical aspect of the experiments A - D referenced here has yet to be evaluated in order to test and develop a theory on bio-information storage and transfer in 'homoeopathically' prepared dilutions.======================================. http://www.entretiens-internationaux.mc/cristun.htm 3.3. THE EFFECT OF BELLADONNA (
DILUTIONS ACCORDING TO THE IDENTITY PRINCIPLE ("AEQUALIA AEQUALIBUS CURENTUR") USED IN ISOPATHYThe N solutions of B had no curative effect, according to the identity principle, on the relaxation induced by the 1 C solution of B. All the studied D dilutions of B had a therapeutic effect (in all the n = 8 cases), according to the identity principle, both on the relaxation induced by the N or D dilutions 1 C and on the contraction induced by the D dilution 45 C of B . The prerequisite was to use for the treatment, higher dilutions than the dilution used to induce the imbalance of tonicity. Thus, B in the D dilutions 5, 45, 75 and 200 C reduced the hypotonia induced by B in the 1 C dilution, both N and D. On the other hand, B in the D dilutions 55, 75 and 200 C diminished the contraction induced by B in the D dilution 45 C (Figure 3).

During that phase, their thermoluminescence has been studied and it was found that, despite their dilution beyond the Avogadro number, the emitted light was specific of the original salts dissolved initially. ====================================== http://www.pubmedcentral.nih.gov/articlere...cgi?artid=27460 2000, British Medical JournalBMJ. 2000 August 19; 321 (7259): 471-476Randomised controlled trial of homoeopathy versus placebo in perennial allergic rhinitis with overview of four trial series Morag A Taylor, research associate,a David Reilly, honorary senior lecturer in medicine,a Robert H Llewellyn-Jones, lecturer,b Charles McSharry, principal immunologist,c Tom C Aitchison, senior lecturer in statisticsdaUniversity Department of Medicine, Glasgow Royal Infirmary, Glasgow G31 2ER, bDepartment of Psychological Medicine, University of Sydney, New South Wales 2006, Australia, cUniversity Department of Immunology, Western Infirmary, Glasgow G11 6NT, dDepartment of Statistics, University of Glasgow, Glasgow G12 8QQ Correspondence to: D Reilly, Academic Departments, Glasgow Homoeopathic Hospital, Glasgow G12 0XQ davidreilly1###compuserve.com======================================. http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/entrez/query.f...t_uids=11737881 CONCLUSIONS: Both Cad Sulph-30 and 200 were able to combat cadmium induced genotoxic effects in mice and that combined pre- and post-feeding mode of administration was found to be most effective in reducing the genotoxic effect of CdCl2 followed by the post-feeding mode.======================================= http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/entrez/query.f...5&dopt=Abstract Time related neutralization of two doses acetyl salicylic acid.Aguejouf O, Malfatti E, Belon P, Doutremepuich C.Laboratoire d'Hematologie, Faculte de Pharmacie, 146, Rue Leo-Saignat 33 076 Bordeaux Cedex, France.======================================= http://else.hebis.de/cgi-bin/sciserv.pl?co...=307_neocigcrcn Neurotoxicology Vol: 23, Issue: 3, September, 2002 Non-Linear Effects of Cycloheximide in Glutamate-Treated Cultured Rat Cerebellar Neurons Authors: Marotta, Dianea; Marini, Annb; Banaudha, Krishnab; Maharaj, Susanc; Ives, John; Morrissette, Craig R.d; Jonas, Wayne B.a.

Angelo, via Cintia 80126, Naples, Italy. elia###chemistry.unina.it==========================================Biologische Medizin/Heft 1/February 2004Professor Karen Nieber, head of the institute for pharmacy at Leipzig University, set about proving that homeopathy does not work and at the most can be explained by the so-called placebo effect. It was whilst looking for a test arrangement which totally excluded any placebo effect that she came up with the following idea: she placed a rat intestines in a nutrient solution and fixed it using organic threads to a sensor in order to measure the reduction of the intestines through contraction. She then added a stimulant to the nutrient solution, which caused a strong contraction of the rat intestines.Professor Karen Nieber, as a pharmacologist, expected that the treatment with a homeopathic agent with a potenz above C12 would have no effect against the enterospasms, since there are no more active agents present above this potenz. In Leipzig they then added Belladonna D90 to the nutrient solution with the rat intestines cramped through the stimulant they had added and lo and behold, the enterospasms ceased immediately, the measuring device registered the relaxation of the intestines.=====================================The research proves that homeopathic dilutions of Belladonna do have an influence on the motility of the gastrointestinal system. Influence is apparent in ACh- and SP-induced contractions. Contractions triggered by other kinds of signals (histamine on H1-receptors, K+-depolarisation) are not influenced by homeopathic Belladonna. This tells us, that Belladonna apparently does not have effect on the smooth muscle itself, but on the nerval mechanisms of communication.The effect of the high potencies of Belladonna cannot be due to the effects of the material substance of Belladonna. It is possible, that by the processes of homeopathic potentization, structure and dynamics of the liquid vehicle of the medicine are modified leading to a physico-chemiclal influence on mechanisms of communication.

Chemist Jan Enberts of the University of Groningen in the Netherlands is more cautious. "It's still a totally open question," he says. "To say the phenomenon has biological significance is pure speculation." But he has no doubt Samal and Geckeler have discovered something new. "It's surprising and worrying," he says. ======================================= http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/entrez/query.f...3&dopt=Abstract ================================Kleijnen 1991British Medical Journal. 107 trials. Criteria-based meta-analysis.  77% are positive  The higher the scientific merit of the study, the more likely it is to show homoeopathy as superior to placebo. The evidence presented in this review would probably be sufficient for establishing homoeopathy as a regular treatment for certain conditions.Boissel 1996Report for European Commission. 15 trials. Very strict inclusion criteria. Meta-analysis; data synthesis by combining the significance levels (p-values) for the primary outcomes from each trial.  Combined p value for the 15 trials was highly significant p=0.0002.  ' There is evidence that homeopathic medicine is more effective than placebo' .  Little evidence of publication bias.  Further high quality studies are needed.Linde 1997Lancet. 89 trials. Meta-analysis; data synthesis by combining the odds ratios.  Combined odds ratio 2.45 (95% CI 2.05, 2.93) in favour of homeopathy.  Odds ratio for 26 best quality studies was 1.66.  No evidence of significant publication bias.  The results are not compatible with the hypothesis that the clinical effects of homeopathy are completely due to placebo. ====================================== http://www.abc.net.au/dimensions/health/tr...pts/s370216.htm AMA (Australian Medical Association) calls for an "open mind" on homoeopathy AMA calls for an "open mind" on homeopathySome medical groups have found it difficult to accept evidence of homoeopathy's effectiveness because it appears to counter the current understanding of how drugs work. Many homoeopathic medicines are so dilute that no single molecule is left in the solution." My view is that the evidence should speak for itself ," says Dr Roberta Chow, a member of the Federal AMA's Advisory Committee on Complementary Medicine. "There have been other studies like this and if the BMJ is prepared to look at it perhaps we should be more open minded about it." Dr Chow also points to evidence involving the imprinting of water molecules that suggests a possible mechanism for how homoeopathy might work in the absence of molecules left in solution. Dr Chow says she is disappointed that there is a lack of official support for doctor training in complementary medicine at a time when it is so widely used in the community."For doctors to be ignorant of such things, we are not giving our patients the best management available, the best advice we can."

Thus, the death rate of mice intoxicated with high doses of mercury was markedly reduced by a 7 day pretreatment with 10-30 M concentrations of that metal. For example, the death rate following a single injection of 5 mg/kg HgCl2 was 73.4% in control, 50% for those pretreated with 10-18 M and only 26.7% for those pretreated with 10-30 M.We found the same profile of response with our in vitro model in which 10-30 and 10-40 M dilutions provided a fair protection against cadmium induced cytotoxicity in renal tubular cell cultures. Similar results have recently been described for high dilutions of thymulin (Bastide et al., 1987), bursin (Youbicier-Simo et al.., 1993) and silica (Oberbaum et al.., 1992).======================================. http://www.entretiens-internationaux.mc/endler.htm Recent physics research has revealed that water dipoles may develop phase coherent oscillations through radiation coupling (del Giudice et al., 1988; del Giudice, 1994). It is proposed that these could be modulated as a time-ordered pattern of signals (Endler and Schulte, 1994) and induce the coherent wave propagation (electron propagation) in metals (Endler and Schulte, 1994). A further theory suggests that the phase coherent oscillations may originate information pattern formation through isotopicity effects in high dilutions (Endler and Schulte, 1994). The theoretical physical aspect of the experiments A - D referenced here has yet to be evaluated in order to test and develop a theory on bio-information storage and transfer in 'homoeopathically' prepared dilutions.======================================. http://www.entretiens-internationaux.mc/cristun.htm 3.3. THE EFFECT OF BELLADONNA (
DILUTIONS ACCORDING TO THE IDENTITY PRINCIPLE ("AEQUALIA AEQUALIBUS CURENTUR") USED IN ISOPATHYThe N solutions of B had no curative effect, according to the identity principle, on the relaxation induced by the 1 C solution of B. All the studied D dilutions of B had a therapeutic effect (in all the n = 8 cases), according to the identity principle, both on the relaxation induced by the N or D dilutions 1 C and on the contraction induced by the D dilution 45 C of B . The prerequisite was to use for the treatment, higher dilutions than the dilution used to induce the imbalance of tonicity. Thus, B in the D dilutions 5, 45, 75 and 200 C reduced the hypotonia induced by B in the 1 C dilution, both N and D. On the other hand, B in the D dilutions 55, 75 and 200 C diminished the contraction induced by B in the D dilution 45 C (Figure 3).
