Extremely Dilute Solutions Create Non-Melting Ice Crystals in Room Temperature Water: The Implications on Homeopathic Medicine

A group of California scientists at the American Technologies Group have discovered, identified, and characterized a unique type of stable (non-melting) ice crystals that maintain an electrical field. These nanometer sized, rod-shaped water clus ters are created when a substance is placed in distilled water, then vigorously shaken or stirred, and then repeatedly diluted and shaken or stirred.


Shui-Yin Lo, PhD, a senior researcher at American Technolo gies Group and a visiting professor at the California Institute of Technology, notes, “These water clusters or ice crystals remain stable at high temperatures, and what’s intriguing is that the ice crystals still exist with varying fluctuation after repeated dilutions.”


The uses of very small doses of substances to promote sig nificant biological or chemical activity is not new to science or medicine. Hormesis is the modern scientific field that studies the effects of extremely small doses of otherwise toxic sub stances to stimulate growth or healing. Hundreds of studies from a variety of scientific fields have confirmed this phenomena, and
the journal, Health Physics, even devoted an entire issue to this phenomena (May, 1987).


Also, one of the most popular alternative therapies in the world today is homeopathic medicine, a system of using extremely small doses of plant, mineral, chemical, or animals substances. Homeopathy has been derided by conventional physicians and scien tists since its inception in the early 1800s because they incor rectly assumed that homeopathic doses of medicines were too small to have a significant biological or clinical effect. Despite
this antagonism, homeopathy has persisted and even has consist ently grown on every continent in the world today.


Dana Ullman, M.P.H., author of The Consumer’s Guide to Homeopathy (Tarcher/Putnam, 1996) and numerous others and a leading spokesperson for the field, notes, “This new research confirms the existence of IE crystals and suggests that there may be something ‘there’ in homeopathic medicines after all. Many physicians and scientists have ignored homeopathy simply because they couldn’t explain it. While we still don’t know precisely how these IE crystals work in the body, at least we can now verify that homeopathic medicines are biologically active. This is a landmark discovery, both for homeopathy and for science.”


The new research by Dr. S. Lo and the various other scientists who have confirmed it seems to verify the experiences of two centuries of homeopathic physicians. Dr. Lo notes, “There
seems to be something unique in water that undergoes extreme dilution, and we now have the laboratory evidence and even the photographic evidence to verify it.”


Dr. Lo acknowledges the links between his work and that of homeopathic medicine, but he also asserts, “Thus far, we have only systematically tested substances which have been diluted one to ten 13 times. Homeopathic doctors sometimes use medicines which are diluted one to ten 30, 200, 1,000, or more times, and we have not tested these extreme dilutions yet. However, I would
not be surprised if IE crystals are also observed in these doses. Based on our research to date, every dilution beyond the sixth
has found IE crystals in them.”


When following the traditional homeopathic pharmacological method to diluting and shaking solutions, the American Technology scientists found that approximately 0.1-0.2% of the solution contained IE crystals. These scientists, however, have discov ered methods to increase this to 10%.


Dr. Lo concludes, “The homeopaths were definitely onto something, but our discovery of IE crystals may help their medi cines become even more powerfulful, and these IE crystals will also probably have significant industrial applications, energy transfer benefits, cleansing uses, and ecological protection.”


Dr. Lo’s work with IE crystals was initially inspired by earlier research in homeopathy, and his first experiments in
using microdoses of substances were derived from the homeopathic pharmacological process of sequential diluting and shaking sub stances in a distilled water.
The Lancet (September 20, 1997) recently published a review of 89 double-blind controlled trials and discovered that homeo pathic medicines were 2.45 more effective than a placebo. Even the studies which were deemed “high quality” studies found that homeopathic medicine had a 1.78 times greater effect than place bo. Despite these significant results, scientists and skeptics have dismissed this research primarily because they assumed that the doses used in homeopathy simply did not exist and could not possibly have any effect.
