Jerry was a tall man, age 46, intelligent, polite, trim, but barely able to walk, and looking visibly discouraged.

Jerry’s chief complaints were progressive weakness in his left leg, numbness in his left hand, and fatigue. His complaints began in 1993 while he worked as a scientist for a major pharmaceutical company. Extensive medical evaluations were done. The initial finding was “possible demyelinating disease.” As Jerry’s symptoms progressed, he noted marked difficulty with leg coordination and with balance while walking. In 1995, he was laid off due to “downsizing” when the company was taken over by another pharmaceutical drug giant. The layoff was very traumatic for him. A year later, he was diagnosed with Progressive-Relapsing Multiple Sclerosis (PRMS), more commonly called Primary Progressive Multiple Sclerosis (PPMS). The diagnosis was made through brain MRI and enhanced spinal MRI.

Multiple Sclerosis (MS) is a disease of the central nervous system – the brain, spinal cord and optic nerve. MS causes destruction of the coating or myelin sheath that surrounds and protects nerve fibers (axons). This damage can disrupt the normal flow of messages or nerve impulses from the central nervous system, causing a reduction or loss of body function. Often, the nerve fibers are also destroyed. Here are some interesting facts about MS:

  • It is diagnosed more than twice as often in women as in men
  • MS seems to be concentrated in certain areas of the world. For example, higher rates of MS are found in those living farther from the equator.
  • MS has been associated with certain viruses like mononucleosis (Epstein Barr), varicella zoster (herpes simplex virus 3) and Hepatitis A & B vaccines, although some claim research is lacking to prove this.

Quantum Entanglement in Homeopathic Trials?

Most homeopathic studies seek to investigate whether homeopathic treatment can be shown to be effective within accepted methodologies of medicine, biology, chemistry and physics. However, there are theoreticians that argue that traditional research methods are inappropriate or insufficient to assess homeopathy. Calls for employing concepts from quantum physics in support of the ultra-dilution hypothesis, i.e. to counter accusations of relative paucity of positive results from homeopathic treatment in Randomized Controlled Trials (RCTs), are made by several of these theorists, and even from within the community of homeopathic practitioners.

 

British homeopath Lionel Milgrom likes to dazzle his audiences with complex formulas derived from quantum physics to make his points. In a 2005 article1 he examined whether RCTs are redundant for testing the efficacy of homeopathy. He had observed that RCTs had yet to deliver unequivocal results demonstrating on the efficacy (or otherwise) of homeopathic remedies and individualized homeopathic prescribing. He asked if this could be caused by an implicit assumption inherent in RCT methodology that specific effects of a remedy and any nonspecific effects of consultation are independent of each other. He postulated a patient–practitioner–remedy (PPR) entanglement model as a necessary condition of homeopathic therapeutic interaction.

 

Milgrom called for alternatives to RCTs that can take into account possible entangled specific and nonspecific effects during trials of homeopathy. He theorized that since RCTs sometimes deliver positive results for the use of homeopathic remedies, that this may be caused by residual entanglement arising from homeopathic remedy manufacture. He proposed as one possibility that a homeopathic remedy “entails the entangled intention of those involved in its preparation” citing similar arguments by others. As a second option he proposed a surviving residual entanglement from remedy production but, ironically, as the cause of so-called Memory of Water (MoW) effects. Read more
