“Hormesis is a term used to describe any phenomenon in a cell or the whole organism that exhibits a biphasic response to exposure to increasing amounts of substance or condition”. from wikipedia.
Within the hormetic zone there is generally a favorable biological response to low exposures to toxins and other stressors. ~from wikipedia
Any substance or condition showing Hormesis thus has the opposite effect in small doses as in large doses.
In toxicology, hormesis is a dose response phenomenon characterized by a low dose stimulation, high dose inhibition, resulting in either a J-shaped or an inverted U-shaped dose response. Such environmental factors that would seem to produce positive responses have also been termed “eustress”. ~ from wikipedia.
This is exactly what homoeopathic principle of similia similibus curenture is. Thus theory of Hormesis proves Homoeopathic Principle of Similia Similibus Curenture.
Non of the single Homoeopathic medicines can be patented and almost all available elements and naturally occuring substances are already mentioned in homoeopathic materia medica and are efficiently used as as per principle of Similia Similibus Curentur or say homoeopathic doctorine of same cures same or say Hormesis or hormetic effect , its one and the same.
The scientific community is outright rejecting similia similibus curentur and accepting the theory of Hormesis, where as its exactly one and the same with two different names.
They say they reject homoeopathy because homoeopathy uses only high dilution, its their lack of knowledge or misconception or delibrate misrepresentation of facts, they should not forget that homoeopthic system of medicine not only use high dilutes but also uses crude form and various different concentration of substance and we dilute it in various ways and methods to get various degrees of concerntration of the substance, we have various different scales for diluting a substance, and we have various degrees of dilutions straight from crude till very high ultra dilutions.
Wikipedia have misrepresented the fact about Homoeopathy intheir page about Hormesis, that in homoeopathy typically uses high potency. Also the page about homoeopathy terms Homoeopathic principle of same cure same as unscientific now again that contradicts with their article about hormesis where they claim this principle to be scientific.
Homoeopathy uses dilutions in varying degrees as per requirement and symptoms of patient, straight from crude substance to ultra high dilutes.
So to delibrately misrepresent the facts and to systematically demolish almost 400yrs old system of medicine, just to bring up the same principle of Similia Similibus Curenture with new name is nothing but old wine in new bottle and its a malicious act and conspiracy done just to get homoeopathic medicines and its principles patented so that few with wasted interests can make money out of it.
