How does homeopathy work?
Homeopathy, for the most part, is viewed as bunk by the scientific community. It’s a practice of diluting toxins heavily, often to the point that there may not even be a molecule of it in the “medicine,” then introducing it into the body.
The explanation given by homeopathy practitioners is that the small dose of toxins helps boost the body’s immune system. In one experiment series known as the Belfast Homeopathy Experiment, pharmacologist Madeline Ennis set out to disprove homeopathy once and for all.
Unfortunately, she proved it right.
Her studies showed that ultra-dilute solutions still have an effect on our bodies. She introduced ultra-dilute histamine solutions into areas of the body that were inflamed. In many of these solutions, the dilution was so heavy that there likely wasn’t even a single molecule in there.
Despite the high dilution, the body reacted by ceasing new release of histamine. So, the homeopathy worked. She performed this test repeatedly in four different labs, with placebo controls, all with the same result. No one knows how it worked, or why our bodies are able to sense the toxins.
