Effect of Bar Code Scanners, X-rays, Microwave Ovens and Cell Phones on Homeopathic Remedies

Do NOT store your remedies near your microwave, near your cell phone or in a purse with your phone, etc.

Manufacturers and homeopaths are often overly cautious about what damages the subtle energy of homeopathic remedies.  This is because research into what does and doesn't affect remedies has been limited. As a result, they have frequently recommended that they shouldn't be scanned or x-rayed at airports.

Fortunately, recent research shows that airport x-rays and red barcode scanners don't have any effect on remedies.

Other things such as the emissions from mobile phones and microwave ovens do, however.  See the full article below.

Tadpole Research: Homeopathic Remedies Harmed by Mobile (Cell) Phones and Microwave Ovens

Would you believe it? Not only have tadpoles shown skeptical scientists that homeopathy really does work, they have also given us information on how to keep our remedies safe.

Researchers in two different countries have recently tested homeopathically prepared thyroxine, a hormone that influences body metabolism and energy, on tadpoles that were being artificially stimulated by chemical thyroxine.

Those that had a dose of potentized thyroxine added to their water did not grow as fast as those that received a placebo dose of just plain water. In other words, the potentized thyroxine cancelled out the stimulating effects of the chemical thyroxine.

Those who have experienced the effects of homeopathic remedies will not be surprised by this result. In spite of homeopathic remedies appearing to be nothing more than water, alcohol and sugar molecules when viewed under a microscope, their energetic nature can have health-changing effects when prescribed according to the ‘like treats like’ action of homeopathy.

These experiments were repeated six times with similar results over two countries.

The really interesting part for those of us who use homeopathy, is that the scientists also decided to check the effect of different electromagnetic fields had on the remedies.

For centuries it has been known that coffee, mint and camphor can sometimes antidote homeopathic remedies in sensitive people. Polluting electromagnetic radiation, however, is a relatively new phenomenon and we are still unsure of its full effects.

So, our tadpole researchers looked to see if the potentized thryoxine, when exposed to radiation from mobile (cell) phones, airport X-rays, red light barcode scanners, and microwave ovens, still had an effect on the tadpoles.

The results? Apparently it’s safe for your remedies be x-rayed at the airport, and scanned by red-light barcode scanners. The potentized thyroxine still worked after being exposed to them.

The radiation from a mobile phone, however, even when 25 cm away, destroyed the energetic nature of the potentized throxine – it could no longer slow the tadpoles rate of growth. This is information is obviously important for those of us who would like to carry remedies in our bags with a mobile phone – they can be damaged.

Early model microwave ovens with their high leakage rates also cancelled out any effects from the remedy. Unfortunately, the study did not look at the effects of more modern ovens.

So, we can all be grateful to those little tadpoles. While we are not sure why they had to be stimulated with chemical thyroxine to prove that potentized thryoxine could ‘unstimulate’ them, they have clearly provided us with other valuable information such as- don’t, under any circumstance, cook your remedy in the microwave!
