Central Nervous System Influence Of The Homeopathic Remedy


Another study done on mice, I believe, proves that homeopathic remedies act on their influence to the central nervous system. It is my understanding that anxiety is a brain phenomenon.


"Abstract: BACKGROUND: The homeopathic preparation of Pulsatilla nigricans is used in the treatment of anxiety related disorders. Though in clinical use for many years, the anxiolytic activity of Pulsatilla nigricans (Puls) has not been evaluated experimentally. Hence the present study was conducted in Swiss albino mice to evaluate the anxiolytic activity of Puls and compare its activity with the standard anxiolytic drug, diazepam."

Anxiolytic effect of homeopathic preparation of Pulsatilla nigricans in Swiss albino mice

This paper proposal was accepted to the World Congress in China in 2012 and the following has been edited to include homeopathy as a potential neuromodulator. 

AbstractMy premise begins with the idea that the brain acts like a computer and manages the organs of the body. The organs, tissues and cells are under its control and these parts of the body do not handle what happens to them. If the brain is functioning properly, we have health; and if it works wrongly a disease will show up. Our actions upon the brain using neuromodulation can cure disease. If this can be shown and proven true, then we could establish it as a Law of Nature.  I present the hypothesis that homeopathy and acupuncture can act as neuromodulators. 




Science is synthesis. In history we have seen advances constantly synthesized.  E=mc2 is perhaps the most famous scientific synthesis of history. Another simplification that demonstrates synthesizing is the Law of universal gravitation and all the other Newtonians laws.  

The informatics-cybernetic conceptualization applied to medicine, as synthesized in this document, is a simplification of the understanding of what health, disease, and cure are from a purely physiologic point of view, of beings with a Central Nervous System. In this context, for example, “disease is Central Nervous System dysfunction” is a synthesis. I attempt to establish this concept. 

Therapeutic Neuro-modulation

The research I present here shows us that "neuromodulator therapeutic sciences" are healing sciences based upon how the central nervous system handles information-signaling similar to a computer.  Acupuncture triggers the C. N. S. to react using various methods and media by touching “accupoints” in a way that resembles the way we handle information and correlated media in the mechanical-electronic-brain computers with the keyboard or by means of tactile media, like “touching the screen” or “clicking in the mouse.” Acupuncture therapy inserts needles, creates slight injury, applies pressure, and changes energies, Other energizing applications such as photonics, laser, and even fire changes energies, as one does when turning points on and off in computers. When we do something on a “point” the CNS gets the impulse and reacts. I propose that homeopathy medicine resembles acupuncture by affecting CNS. (Benveniste, Montagnier)   

Changing Thought Patterns

The health sciences based in cybernetics-informatics systems change the biological information within living organisms. All the modern psychological therapies try to modify the CNS functioning by changing a person's thought patterns. Neuromodulators attempt to change insane thought patterns and processes occurring in the brain.  Chemical drugs are often used as the support media to this type of therapy, with its objective as a neuromodulator.

The placebo effect is another neuromodulator healing process. 




If we assume the brain is responsible for running the organism as a whole; this suggests it regulates a person's health, keeping the economy properly functioning. If we look at this from another point of view, we might understand that the organs are not responsible for their proper functioning, their health, because the brain's plays a major role in regulating all organs. Thus, neither the heart nor the liver or any other organs are the architects of their own destiny. It is the brain. The same happens with tissues and cells.

For example, the elements that require chemical energy for muscle function, synthesized by the liver, and carried by the circulatory system all require the CNS. And, for the liver to function correctly it needs a number of variables controlled by the brain and in no way by the liver itself. Call any other organ and it will be the same picture. 


May we, then conclude that all of this series of events found in the organs of the body, their health or disease falls under the auspices of the brain?

This concept does not apply in cases in which the body is affected by external agents such as toxins, or energies like electricity or heat.

Disease is a reflex of a dysfunction of the brain based upon this concept. 


In this context we can see and affirm for sure that healing is also the responsibility of the CNS and not from each organ, tissue or cell. Most notably, the cell, by virtue of her staple constituent of tissues and organs do not have any control command. In fact, cells are like babies who need to be provided of everything they need and eliminate what is harmful to them, and this is an exclusive task of the CNS, and that is what acupuncture does. In a recent study (22 August, 2011) it has being seeing that each cell is under the brain’s control.

SYNTHESIS: The CNS is responsible for health, disease and cure. Acting on the brain can heal organs, tissues and cells, which I say and it is definitely proven in acupuncture is precisely what this therapy does. 


Dr. D Kumar MD (Homoeopath) from India has conducted an essay in which was found evidence that homeopathic medicines produce some change in the physiological variability, which means that the homeo-remedy acts on the brain, the hypothalamus, directly.

“Homeopathic medicines of 200c potency are applied orally to human subjects. ‘Physiological variability in temperature’ from skin of forearm is measured with the help of temperature data logger and water/soil temperature sensor. Temperature readings are taken at an interval of 1 second for 5 minutes. Time series spectral analysis is performed by using Statistical processing software. The statistical procedures like Auto Regressive Spectrum (ARS) and Parametric prediction and reconstruction (PPR) are used to study the change in temperature variability. There is marked change in temperature variability after applied homeopathic medicine.

The hypothalamus is responsible for certain metabolic processes and other activities of the Autonomic Nervous System. It synthesizes and secretes neurohormones, often called hypothalamic-releasing hormones, and these in turn stimulate or inhibit the secretion of pituitary hormones. The hypothalamus controls body temperature, hunger, thirst, fatigue, and circadian cycles. So, one of the regulatory functions of hypothalamus, ‘Thermoregulation in human subjects’ is taken as primary subject to understand the action of Homeopathic medicine. The parameter “Physiological variability in human body temperature” (Vital Heat) is selected for the study.

All the psychotherapies try to modify the CNS function through thoughts. Insane conducts are to be changed, and conduct is a product of brain process, thinking. That is the reason they are neuromodulators. Even though chemical drugs are used as a support media to the therapy its objective is neuromodulator. 


Now a series of observations are made to show that the informatics-cybernetic interpretation is Hahnemannian.   

Organon Paragraph § 16 Fifth Edition 

  • “Our vital force, as a spirit-like dynamis, cannot be attacked and affected by injurious influences on the healthy organism caused by the external inimical forces that disturb the harmonious play of life, otherwise than in a spirit-like (dynamic) way, and in like manner, all such morbid derangements (diseases) cannot be removed from it by the physician in any other way than by the spirit-like (dynamic, virtual) alterative powers of the serviceable medicines acting upon our spirit-like vital force, which perceives them through the medium of the sentient faculty of the nerves everywhere present in the organism…”

Hahnemann’s book “The Chronic Disease”  Page #45:

  • “When the smallpox or the cowpox catches, thus happens in the moment when in vaccination the morbid fluid in the body scratch of the skin comes in contact with the exposed nerve, which then, irrevocably, dynamically communicates the disease to the vital force (to the whole nervous system) in the same moment” 


Page #49 of the same book:

  • “As soon as the miasma of Itch, e. g. touches the hand, in the moment when it has taken effect, it no more remains local…The nerve which was first affected by the miasma has already communicated it in an invisible manner to the nerves of the rest of the body…”Master Hahnemann understands even that the vital force is in the nerves: “which then, irrevocably, dynamically communicates the disease to the vital force (to the whole nervous system) in the same moment”


Obviously he did not say, “the central nervous system” because it is included since the moment in which he says “the whole nervous system” Surely, I have no doubt, that he did understand that the influence was the CNS, but saying so in such a religious era would cause him to be…“burned at the stake.” Well, maybe not that drastic, but he would have being viewed with not “good eyes.”  He realized that he had to say it “between the lines.” I find it curious that nobody has ever commented that homeopathy medicines acts on the nervous system. As Hahnemann says, “the whole,”  is fundamental in the understanding of his concept of how the homeoremedies operates, because without that neuronal influence, he often said, they do not operate. That’s it: here he explains how they operate in the body; trough the nerves.

  • Hahnemann considers this concept transcendental and a fundamental matter. Can this  interpretation help explain the theories of the possible direct influence of the homeopathic remedies upon the misbalanced vital energy or the cells? The obtained energy equilibrium with the homeopathic medicines is transmitted by the neuronal registration on the whole entity. And taking into account Hahnemann's genius intelligence we cannot think that he would have missed the leadership role of the CNS and it's influence on the homeopathic medicine. If this theory is true, then we can induce and infer that the central nervous system plays a vital part in the energetic equilibrium.



We find that homeopathic medicines act on beings with primitive nervous systems, such as plants, microbes, and cells. However, even in these organisms, if the nerves malfunction, the cellular actions do not work properly, and remedies have no deep effect.  


Let’s imagine arthritis in a hand finger joint. We may apply in the joint an injection of cortisone and the cells of the area will be healed and reduce swelling. But, when the cortisone effects end, the swelling comes back because has not changed the main controlling central nervous system. The cells have not received the needed information transmitted to the CNS to control the swelling.  Acupuncture and homeopathy both induce a deep action, a true curing, in the cell due to the action on the brain and CNS. 

Healing only cells is not enough, the CNS must work properly. Cellular healing may be surface healing, not deep healing. Remember, if cells receive needed nutrients and information from their environment they maintain health, but if something fails, they get sick, and that medium does not depend on them but from the homeostatic mechanisms (Walter B. Cannon) from the organism which are directly handled by the CNS. 

Nevertheless, cellular action provings of the homeopathic medicines explain the influence they have in the neurons and the nerve endings that send signals to the control center, which then produces its curing reaction. Without cellular influence, no central nervous reaction could be done. Homeopathy has also a large number of provings of neuro-modulation action, but none has been done like those made in acupuncture, which examine what happens to the brain with imagining technologies such as; PET, MRI, SPECT.  Research must be done using these technology to observe what happens when a homeopathic medicine has being administered.


The neuro-modulation therapeutic action is definitely proved in acupuncture through research made with state of the art imaging technology such as fMRI, PET and SPECT 

This one made in Harvard is special one: 1: Hum Brain Mapp. 2000;9(1):13-25. Acupuncture modulates the limbic system and subcortical gray structures of the human brain: evidence from fMRI studies in normal subjects.

  • “Acupuncture, an ancient therapeutic technique, is emerging as an important modality of complementary medicine in the United States. The use and efficacy of acupuncture treatment are not yet widely accepted in Western scientific and medical communities. Demonstration of regionally specific, quantifiable acupuncture effects on relevant structures of the human brain would facilitate acceptance and integration of this therapeutic modality into the practice of modern medicine. Research with animal models of acupuncture indicates that many of the beneficial effects may be mediated at the subcortical level in the brain…”

  1. A. In another publication “Investigating Acupuncture Using Brain Imaging Techniques: The Current State of Play shows that largely specific areas of brain influence when acupuncture was used [] 



Homeopathy and acupuncture similarly act on the brain. It is evident that homeopathy and the acupunctural healing processes have their effect on the CNS based upon numerous provings. I believe there is an actual curing Law of Nature: “Law of therapeutic neuromodulation”.
