Luc Montagnier, Nobel Prize Winner, Takes Homeopathy Seriously
Dr. Luc Montagnier, the French virologist who won the Nobel Prize in 2008 for discovering the AIDS virus, has surprised the scientific community with his strong support for homeopathic medicine.
In a remarkable interview published in Science magazine of December 24, 2010, (1) Professor Luc Montagnier, has expressed support for the often maligned and misunderstood medical specialty of homeopathic medicine. Although homeopathy has persisted for 200+ years throughout the world and has been the leading alternative treatment method used by physicians in Europe, (2) most conventional physicians and scientists have expressed skepticism about its efficacy due to the extremely small doses of medicines used.
Most clinical research conducted on homeopathic medicines that has been published in peer-review journals have shown positive clinical results,(3, 4) especially in the treatment of respiratory allergies (5, 6), influenza, (7) fibromyalgia, (8, 9) rheumatoid arthritis, (10) childhood diarrhea, (11) post-surgical abdominal surgery recovery, (12) attention deficit disorder, (13) and reduction in the side effects of conventional cancer treatments. (14) In addition to clinical trials, several hundred basic science studies have confirmed the biological activity of homeopathic medicines. One type of basic science trials, called in vitro studies, found 67 experiments (1/3 of them replications) and nearly 3/4 of all replications were positive. (15, 16)
In addition to the wide variety of basic science evidence and clinical research, further evidence for homeopathy resides in the fact that they gained widespread popularity in the U.S. and Europe during the 19th century due to the impressive results people experienced in the treatment of epidemics that raged during that time, including cholera, typhoid, yellow fever, scarlet fever, and influenza.
Montagnier, who is also founder and president of the World Foundation for AIDS Research and Prevention, asserted, “I can’t say that homeopathy is right in everything. What I can say now is that the high dilutions (used in homeopathy) are right. High dilutions of something are not nothing. They are water structures which mimic the original molecules.”
Here, Montagnier is making reference to his experimental research that confirms one of the controversial features of homeopathic medicine that uses doses of substances that undergo sequential dilution with vigorous shaking in-between each dilution. Although it is common for modern-day scientists to assume that none of the original molecules remain in solution, Montagnier’s research (and other of many of his colleagues) has verified that electromagnetic signals of the original medicine remains in the water and has dramatic biological effects.
Montagnier has just taken a new position at Jiaotong University in Shanghai, China (this university is often referred to as “China’s MIT”), where he will work in a new institute bearing his name. This work focuses on a new scientific movement at the crossroads of physics, biology, and medicine: the phenomenon of electromagnetic waves produced by DNA in water. He and his team will study both the theoretical basis and the possible applications in medicine.
Montagnier’s new research is investigating the electromagnetic waves that he says emanate from the highly diluted DNA of various pathogens. Montagnier asserts, “What we have found is that DNA produces structural changes in water, which persist at very high dilutions, and which lead to resonant electromagnetic signals that we can measure. Not all DNA produces signals that we can detect with our device. The high-intensity signals come from bacterial and viral DNA.”
Montagnier affirms that these new observations will lead to novel treatments for many common chronic diseases, including but not limited to autism, Alzheimer’s disease, Parkinson’s disease, and multiple sclerosis.
Montagnier first wrote about his findings in 2009, (17) and then, in mid-2010, he spoke at a prestigious meeting of fellow Nobelists where he expressed interest in homeopathy and the implications of this system of medicine. (18)
French retirement laws do not allow Montagnier, who is 78 years of age, to work at a public institute, thereby limiting access to research funding. Montagnier acknowledges that getting research funds from Big Pharma and certain other conventional research funding agencies is unlikely due to the atmosphere of antagonism to homeopathy and natural treatment options.
Support from Another Nobel Prize winner
Montagnier’s new research evokes memories one of the most sensational stories in French science, often referred to as the ‘Benveniste affair.’ A highly respected immunologist Dr. Jacques Benveniste., who died in 2004, conducted a study which was replicated in three other university laboratories and that was published in Nature (19). Benveniste and other researchers used extremely diluted doses of substances that created an effect on a type of white blood cell called basophils.
Although Benveniste’s work was supposedly debunked, (20) Montagnier considers Benveniste a “modern Galileo” who was far ahead of his day and time and who was attacked for investigating a medical and scientific subject that orthodoxy had mistakenly overlooked and even demonized.
In addition to Benveniste and Montagnier is the weighty opinion of Brian Josephson, Ph.D., who, like Montagnier, is a Nobel Prize-winning scientist.
Responding to an article on homeopathy in New Scientist, Josephson wrote:
Regarding your comments on claims made for homeopathy: criticisms centered around the vanishingly small number of solute molecules present in a solution after it has been repeatedly diluted are beside the point, since advocates of homeopathic remedies attribute their effects not to molecules present in the water, but to modifications of the water’s structure.
Simple-minded analysis may suggest that water, being a fluid, cannot have a structure of the kind that such a picture would demand. But cases such as that of liquid crystals, which while flowing like an ordinary fluid can maintain an ordered structure over macroscopic distances, show the limitations of such ways of thinking. There have not, to the best of my knowledge, been any refutations of homeopathy that remain valid after this particular point is taken into account.
A related topic is the phenomenon, claimed by Jacques Benveniste’s colleague Yolène Thomas and by others to be well established experimentally, known as “memory of water.” If valid, this would be of greater significance than homeopathy itself, and it attests to the limited vision of the modern scientific community that, far from hastening to test such claims, the only response has been to dismiss them out of hand. (21)
Following his comments Josephson, who is an emeritus professor of Cambridge University in England, was asked by New Scientist editors how he became an advocate of unconventional ideas. He responded:
I went to a conference where the French immunologist Jacques Benveniste was talking for the first time about his discovery that water has a ‘memory’ of compounds that were once dissolved in it — which might explain how homeopathy works. His findings provoked irrationally strong reactions from scientists, and I was struck by how badly he was treated. (22)
Josephson went on to describe how many scientists today suffer from “pathological disbelief;” that is, they maintain an unscientific attitude that is embodied by the statement “even if it were true I wouldn’t believe it.”
Even more recently, Josephson wryly responded to the chronic ignorance of homeopathy by its skeptics saying, “The idea that water can have a memory can be readily refuted by any one of a number of easily understood, invalid arguments.”
In the new interview in Science, Montagnier also expressed real concern about the unscientific atmosphere that presently exists on certain unconventional subjects such as homeopathy, “I am told that some people have reproduced Benveniste’s results, but they are afraid to publish it because of the intellectual terror from people who don’t understand it.”
Montagnier concluded the interview when asked if he is concerned that he is drifting into pseudoscience, he replied adamantly: “No, because it’s not pseudoscience. It’s not quackery. These are real phenomena which deserve further study.”
The Misinformation That Skeptics Spread
It is remarkable enough that many skeptics of homeopathy actually say that there is “no research” that has shows that homeopathic medicines work. Such statements are clearly false, and yet, such assertions are common on the Internet and even in some peer-review articles. Just a little bit of searching can uncover many high quality studies that have been published in highly respected medical and scientific journals, including the Lancet, BMJ, Pediatrics, Pediatric Infectious Disease Journal, Chest and many others. Although some of these same journals have also published research with negative results to homeopathy, there is simply much more research that shows a positive rather than negative effect.
Misstatements and misinformation on homeopathy are predictable because this system of medicine provides a viable and significant threat to economic interests in medicine, let alone to the very philosophy and worldview of biomedicine. It is therefore not surprising that the British Medical Association had the sheer audacity to refer to homeopathy as “witchcraft.” It is quite predictable that when one goes on a witch hunt, one inevitable finds “witches,” especially when there are certain benefits to demonizing a potential competitor (homeopathy plays a much larger and more competitive role in Europe than it does in the USA).
Skeptics of homeopathy also have long asserted that homeopathic medicines have “nothing” in them because they are diluted too much. However, new research conducted at the respected Indian Institutes of Technology has confirmed the presence of “nanoparticles” of the starting materials even at extremely high dilutions. Researchers have demonstrated by Transmission Electron Microscopy (TEM), electron diffraction and chemical analysis by Inductively Coupled Plasma-Atomic Emission Spectroscopy (ICP-AES), the presence of physical entities in these extreme dilutions. (24) In the light of this research, it can now be asserted that anyone who says or suggests that there is “nothing” in homeopathic medicines is either simply uninformed or is not being honest.
Because the researchers received confirmation of the existence of nanoparticles at two different homeopathic high potencies (30C and 200C) and because they tested four different medicines (Zincum met./zinc; Aurum met. /gold; Stannum met./tin; and Cuprum met./copper), the researchers concluded that this study provides “concrete evidence.”
Although skeptics of homeopathy may assume that homeopathic doses are still too small to have any biological action, such assumptions have also been proven wrong. The multi-disciplinary field of small dose effects is called “hormesis,” and approximately 1,000 studies from a wide variety of scientific specialties have confirmed significant and sometimes substantial biological effects from extremely small doses of certain substances on certain biological systems.
A special issue of the peer-review journal, Human and Experimental Toxicology (July 2010), devoted itself to the interface between hormesis and homeopathy. (25) The articles in this issue verify the power of homeopathic doses of various substances.
In closing, it should be noted that skepticism of any subject is important to the evolution of science and medicine. However, as noted above by Nobelist Brian Josephson, many scientists have a “pathological disbelief” in certain subjects that ultimately create an unhealthy and unscientific attitude blocks real truth and real science. Skepticism is at its best when its advocates do not try to cut off research or close down conversation of a subject but instead explore possible new (or old) ways to understand and verify strange but compelling phenomena. We all have this challenge as we explore and evaluate the biological and clinical effects of homeopathic medicines.

‘Homeophobia’ must not be tolerated
Homeopathy should not be labelled a fraud. Those who study water know the critics are wrong, says Rustum Roy
The Guardian, Tuesday 18 December 2007
Ben Goldacre excoriates the practice of homeopathy (A kind of magic?, November 16). For the record, I have never studied or held a position for, or against, the clinical effectiveness of homeopathy. However, I am a materials chemist who has written one of the most cited papers in materials science, on aqueous solutions.
Having recently studied the extraordinary biological properties of ultradilute aquasols (water with one part per million of solid particles) and written a long review on the structure of water, I accidentally also discovered a new social disease, “homeophobia” – that is, a phobic reaction (mainly by scientists) to the word “homeopathy”, the virulence of which is exemplified by Goldacre.
A major bugaboo for “homeophobes” is the concept that a solution where the solute is extremely diluted (beyond Avogadro’s number) absolutely cannot, they believe, be any different from the original solvent. Hence homeopathy must be a fraud. This has been the anti-homeopathy crowd’s trump card for more than 100 years.
But let us turn to scientists who specialise in water’s properties. Prof Martin Chaplin of London’s South Bank University, a leading expert on the (molecular) structure of water, says: “Too often the final argument used against the memory of water concept is simply ‘I don’t believe it’ … Such unscientific rhetoric is heard from the otherwise sensible scientists, with a narrow view of the subject and without any examination or appreciation of the full body of evidence, and reflects badly on them.”
As it happens, there is agreement among all those who have studied liquid water that it is, in fact, the critics, who are totally wrong. Proof? Diamond is the planet’s hardest material; graphite one of the softest. They are absolutely identical in composition, and they can be interconverted in a millisecond with zero change of composition.
Prof Eugene Stanley of Boston University, the leading expert on the physics of water, has catalogued 64 highly anomalous property changes in pure water. According to the first law of materials science, that means that there must be the same large number of different structures in liquid water – what he called “polymorphism” of water. This year Prof Chaplin, in the journal Homeopathy, discussed in detail how water could retain a “memory”.
But the main thrust of Goldacre’s argument is the role of the “placebo effect”. Yes, this works. And, yes, it is without doubt present in every homeopathic intervention; but it is far more powerfully present in orthodox medical pills because they are advertised so widely in billion-dollar campaigns.
Goldacre is accurate in pointing out the high rates of positive v negative outcomes in many of the homeopathy studies. But there are enormous discrepancies in any set of randomised controlled trials on the same orthodox pills.
Does Goldacre seriously suggest that a homeopathy paper with a positive outcome would be treated fairly in any mainstream journal?

On the Importance of a Coherent Radiation Delivery System for Homeopathic Remedies
by William A. Tiller, Ph.D. and Steven Tonsager*, M.A.
The key part of this White Paper came from some very important experimental findings in Steven Tonsager’s practice and he has allowed me to help share it with the world via this medium, as well as another.
Helen, an elderly woman with acute shingles pain of the upper arm (an axillary region) for about 3 years presented herself for treatment. Field Control Therapy (FCT)(2) identified the problem as Herpes Zoster. S.T. would normally have treated her with homeopathic remedies made in his homeopathic potentizer administered in the usual fashion. Instead, he prepared a high potency remedy (10MM) in a thin glass vial which he placed over the shin of the affected area. Next, he took one of his cold lasers (635 nm, 5 mw)(3) and programmed the laser for common nerve and muscle modulation frequencies (9 and 16 mHz), directing it to the affected skin area through the thin glass vial. In less than 5 seconds, Helen felt a soothing warmth in the affected area and, in 3 minutes (normal exposure time), the pain was completely gone. Mild pain returned in 6 days and one more duplex treatment was given. Simply lasering directly into the tissues without first passing through the homeopathic remedy does not appear to be strongly therapeutic.
Daulton, a 14 year-old boy, was a baseball pitcher with a history of shoulder troubles. S.T. noted that his entire body was very stiff. He could only bend over and touch his fingers to slightly below the mid-shin area. The boy said that he has been that way all his life no matter how much school PT or stretching exercises he did. Via FCT, S.T. determined that the boy had tetanus so his treatment consisted of lasering (same light wavelength and modulation frequencies as Helen) through a high potency vial of tetanus (10MM) to his atlas plus to a few other acupuncture points on DU meridian(4). Less than 5 minutes later, and much to both Daulton’s and his father’s surprise, Daulton was able to bend over and touch his fingers to the floor. The identical treatment was applied to the boy’s shoulder and the sore shoulder problem completely disappeared. In both cases, the lasering was for a duration of only 3 minutes.
From this very small case study, our working hypothesis is that (1) information entanglement between an effective homeopathic remedy and a coherent electromagnetic (EM) carrier wave in the optical range of 635 nm is a very fast- acting medical therapeutic treatment for humans (and probably all vertebrates) and (2) either the EM-emission spectrum of the allopathic chemical involved or its thermodynamic equilibrium homeopathic counterpart are capable of superposing with the coherent laser EM carrier wave or itshomeopathic counterpart. More detailed studies of this duplex modality merit serious attention by others!
Let us try to understand why this might be happening. In White Paper I(5), both the uncoupled state of physical reality (our electric charge-based atom/molecule world with U(1) electromagnetic (EM) Gauge symmetry state mathematics and behavior (see pages 11 to 14 of White Paper VII(6)) and the coupled state of physical reality (our combined electric charge-based substance plus magnetic charge-based substance with SU(2) EM Gauge symmetry state)) was discussed. Our psychoenergetic science strongly suggest that, although the coarsest layer of the human body is comprised of U(1) Gauge electric charge-based materials where everything is constrained to travel at subliminal (v<c) speeds, the uncoupled magnetic charge-based materials are constrained to travel at superluminal velocities (v>c) so that they cannot interact with each other via relativistic mechanics. However, through the use of a higher dimensional “coupler” medium (deltrons), these two uniquely different kinds of substance can begin to interact without violating distance/time relativity theory. This is labeled the coupled state of physical reality and our experiments with DC magnetic field polarity effects have indicated that the human acupuncture meridian system is at the coupled state of physical reality.
From our last dozen years of experimentation, we have observed/postulated the following:
1. Our four initial intention experiments(‘-9) indicated that such intentions act on the magnetic charge-based level of nature (functioning in the physical vacuum) to change the properties of materials and not on the electric charge-based materials,
2. when the coupled state of physical reality is present in an experimental space, our various experimental observations exhibited both coherence-like and magnetic behaviors(w),
3. we have expanded the theoretical reference frame (RF) for viewing nature’s many phenomena to a duplex RF consisting of reciprocal subspaces, one of which is distance-time (D-space) for the subliminal electric charge-based substance while the other is a frequency domain (R-space) for the superluminal magnetic charge-based substance and
4. our working hypothesis is that (a) the human unconscious, (b) the human acupuncture-meridian system and (c) homeopathy all function in the R-space aspect of the human body.
Before bringing the items of the previous paragraph to bear on S.T.’s Case I and Case II experimental data, let me first remind the reader of WAT’s “silver colloid metaphor” (11). Begin by considering what this author calls his “silver colloid” metaphor because it delineates three different kinds of medicine.
If one takes a beaker of water with some bacteria in it and then shakes some silver (Ag) colloid particles into the water, we all know that the bacteria will probably be killed via the bactericidal action of the Ag particles. The general conclusion drawn from this observation is that the physical contact between Ag and the bacterium is a necessary condition for killing of bacteria. This, in turn, has led to the assumption that pharmaceuticals do their work in the human body via contact-types of chemical reactions and this has led to what is labeled as today’s chemical medicine.
What most people do not know is that, if one takes a fluorescent tube held horizontal and places silver colloid particles in it and then focuses the output light from the ignited tube onto the beaker of water containing bacteria, one also kills the bacteria. Such an experiment shows that it is not the physical contact between Ag and the bacterium that is necessary for the killing process to occur. Rather, it is one or more different types of photons from the electromagnetic (EM) emission spectrum of Ag, that entangle with the EM carrier wave from the fluorescent tube and are transported to the beaker of water that are the actual killing mechanism involved in the demise of the bacteria. Pursuing this line of research will inevitably lead to tomorrow’s EM medicine.
Over the past few years, this author and his colleagues have shown that one can imbed a specific intention, from a deep meditative state, into a simple electronic device and have that device, in turn, “condition” a laboratory space wherein the proper experiment is running to test the efficacy of this intention procedure. This procedure has been successful with four uniquely different target experiments: (1) increase the pH of highly purified water by one pH unit, (2) decrease the pH of the same type of water by one pH unit, (3) increase the in vitro thermodynamic activity of the liver enzyme alkaline phosphatase (ALP) by —25% at p < 0.001 and (4) increase the in vivo [ATP]/[ADP] ratio in the cells of fruit fly larvae by —15% at p < 0.001 to make them more physically fit and significantly reduce the larval development time to the adult fly stage. Replication of the first of these target experiments at 10 other laboratories in the US and Europe shows that this is a viable procedure that will ultimately lead to the day-after-tomorrow’s information medicine. By this labeling, I am proposing that it will come into common practice and usage.In all three categories of medicine mentioned, one must not forget that human consciousness is involved both from the medical practitioner’s end and the patient’s end. Thus, in practice, they all fall in the general category of psychophysiological medicine where one can expect that both unconscious and conscious expectations of either or both practitioner and/or patient can significantly influence the outcome of the treatment modality.
Today’s cold-laser therapy is an example of a combined EM / information medicine where one, in principle, delivers periodic bursts of EM or higher dimensional information on an EM carrier wave. The lower is the frequency of the carrier wave, the deeper does it penetrate into the body. The length of a burst, the spacing between bursts and the frequency of the EM waves within the bursts all contribute to the time rate of flow of information into the body. Considering today’s homeopathic medicine in this list of medicine types, it probably belongs in the information medicine category even though it has been practiced for —200 years.
Unfortunately, the viability of homeopathic medicine as a medical treatment modality produces a serious “boggle effect” in the minds of both chemists and allopathic medicine practitioners. Their mind-boggling question is “How can there possibly be a chemical reactivity effect when the aqueous solution concentration of the treatment molecule is less than (Avogadro’s number) -1?”. However, based on standard thermodynamics, it shouldn’t be mind-boggling. We explore the whys and wherefores of this in the next section.
A Brief Reminder About Some Aspects of Chemistry
All processes in nature appear to be driven by differences in thermodynamic free energy functions that involve energy (enthalpy), entropy and temperature. For chemical reactions between multiple species, we generally know the free energy change, AGº, defining the reaction at thermodynamic equilibrium. As such, it is always given by a relationship between the natural logariths of the various equilibrium chemical activities, aei, for the j’th species (see Equation I-2a of Appendix I). The actual thermodynamic driving force for change, AG, is given in terms of AG° and the same logarithm relationship between the actual chemical activities. However, for our interests, it is the definition of a; that is important; i.e., a; = y; ci and inai = in iy -inci
Here, c; = the concentration of j-species in the solvent, y; = the thermodynamic activity coefficient of the j-species and ,en is the natural logarithm. As such, 7.; relates to the sum of all the environmental effects stored in the solvent that act on this j-type of molecule. Such environmental effects could be electric field, E, and magnetic field, H, effects or a wide variety of anomalous chemical potential effects. In most chemical texts, it is assumed that, as the chemical concentration of j goes to very small values, the solution becomes an ideal solution so y; —> 1. However, this need not be so when special environmental thermodynamic effects have been mathematically convoluted into a modified activity coefficient,ij, (see Appendix I, Equations I- 4).
Homeopathic Remedy Preparation
In homeopathic remedy preparation, one does two things, (1) one sequentially dilutes the solution of j-species; i.e., reduces c; and (2) one, simultaneously, sequentially successes the solution; i.e., one alters y; via the succussion process and, because a specific intention underlies this process, the infrastructure stored in the solvent can increase significantly. Thus, instead of Equation I-1 in Appendix I, we have water + c; —> water* + c; (2a) and aj —> a j, (2b) where c; is reduced to c; by dilution while water goes to water* by succussion and dilution. The most compelling message to note from Equations 2 is that, even when c; drops below one j-molecule per cc via dilution, y; can increase significantly via intention-directed succussion. Thus, from Equation lb, In a; can increase significantly even when In ci is negative. Both chemists and allopathic medical practitioners tend to focus their attention on the In c; term and generally neglect the environmental information storage latent in the In yi term and yet a standard thermodynamic treatment says it can become the dominant term as dilution continues.
We are all familiar with the technology of audio and video EM information caused to entangle with EM carrier waves so that this information can be effectively transported via D-space to our home receivers/converters back to perceivable video pictures with sound accompaniment. Likewise with the fluorescent tube/silver electrodes example of the previous paragraph, the silver EM spectral photons entangle with the tube’s EM carrier wave to be delivered to the bacteria containing water glass. Metaphorically, at a higher dimensional level, the intention host device (IHD) is thought to generate ME (magnetoelectric) carrier waves as R-space carrier waves that entangle mental and emotional information associated with the specific intention and deliver it to a specific target in D-space. The ME carrier waves appear to be significantly more coherent than normal EM carrier waves so that less “noise” is expected to be generated in the information signal.
Likewise, when one uses a coherent EM carrier as in Tonsager’s Case I and Case II events, much less “noise” is delivered to the target. Since homeopathic information is presumed to be inherently an R-space information, entangling it with a coherent EM carrier should add, and does appear to add, great therapeutic efficacy to the healing process. It would be interesting to compare healing results with an incoherent EM carrier vs. a coherent EM carrier, both with the same homeopathic remedy and both at the same power and wavelength level. These considerations appear to open a new doorway for serious medical opportunities.
