Science of Homeopathy and Emergent Properties of Water
Unveiling New Perspectives for Global Health

Homeopathy, once considered solely a well-established alternative or complementary healing discipline, has also become a focal point for a burgeoning branch of scientific exploration.

Beyond its conventional healing practice, the foundations and mechanisms of potentized high dilutions are subject to scrutiny through an expanding body of scientific research. These investigations go far beyond clinical studies and include tissue and cellular models of different organisms and, more recently, ecology. In addition, in the last decades, the stated research has gone far beyond living beings since it extended to the physicochemical realm, studying the altered characteristics of fluids subjected to the homeopathic ultra-high dilution (UHD) process.

Extensive scientific efforts have offered convincing evidence of the altered properties of fluids treated with the UHD methodology. These findings provide substantial support for the view that the efficacy of homeopathy is rooted in the emergent properties of polar solvents, water, in particular. More than that, the water properties we learn about from UHD solutions also occur in other treatments of water or aqueous solutions. This is why we can establish a new science of emergent properties of water. It is to substantiate and make new steps in developing this science that the November Conference in Ljubljana will be dedicated to.

This multi-faceted approach sheds light on the fundamental principles of the effectiveness of homeopathy as well as of many other non-chemical water treatments, opening up an entirely new horizon for the development of global health, ranging from individual living beings, including humans, through ecosystems to planet Earth as a whole.
