    Posted: 05 March 04 at 06:09

What is effect of X-Ray scaning on Homeopathy medicines ?? Recently I had been to tour when four times scanning (Two air port , two incoming and two outgoing) of my brief case was done having 20-25 homeopathy medicines with potency varying from 30 to 50 m. Any effect on the medicines ?? If yes is there any method we can escape through this route ??

Expecting expert opinion from homepaths.

Some say it doesn't make any difference but the box of about 100 Rx  I always take abroad with me I insist on hand searching' as I won't let them through the x ray machine.

I would take my box of remedies out and insist on hand-searching, because I've read that it can theoretically interfere with the energy of the remedies or something.  BUT since I live in the States and ordered my remedies through the mail, I'm afraid they've been x-rayed anyway... :(

I requested at one air port not to pass through X-Ray scanning but they hv not accepted at all. I do not know is there any effect on medicine ?? Only expert can advise especially homeopath expert or student who is doing Research or specialisation in this field.

x-RAYS DO AFFECT THE POTENCIES. POTENCIES ARE IN VIBRATIONAL / ENGERGY FORM.

It does not seem possible to answer the question. Since the physics behind hoemopathic drugs is unknown, and there does no seem to be a reliable way t otest if they function, it will be impossible to know if they are affected by x-rays.

However, the x-rays used at airport scanners are not very intensive. For example, they don't effect photographic films.

I was looking for it, but I didn't find it right now. Maybe You will have more luck than I do: Somewhere in older threads (maybe in an other hpathy forum) this topic has been discussed before. I only remember that members had their remedies x-rayed without effect on the healing power.

i agree with mrc.

It looks to me he is a sensible and educated person and not a homeopath.

Day before Y'day I was searching Homeopathy books for this topic, At-last I got book "Homeopathy The modern Prescriber" A Practical Guide to Treatment by Henrietta Wells First published in UK 2002 published by arrangment with Watkins Publishing, London and also published by New Age Books New Delhi for every one web ref is www.newagebooksindia.com

In this book in page 187 (51. Care of remedies when travelling) it has clearly mentioned that Remedies should not go thorugh the X-Ray machines used for security at air port. Two pages details are given what precautions to be taken etc. If any one interested let me know so that I can scanned the same and put for others also to know.

But surprise to know , This forum is having all expert from nation and international level but no concrete comments & explanation has come out for care to be taken. May be what is mentioned in Henrietta Wells book how far it is true. but at-least I got some postive reply.

Thanks

Sigi's right.  This thread has been discussed very recently.

From what I have read and discussed with others, x-rays seem to affect the potency of the remedies. If you take a remedy it may not be as potent or have quite the same effect as the same remedy that has not been through an x-ray machine.

If X-Ray can harm homeopathy medicine then Mobile instrument can also produce the effect if u are keeping medicines in handbag or in pocket with the medicines.

There is another matter: Since there is always a background radiation, we must assume that if remedies are sensitive to x-rays, then they will have a limited shelf-life. I have to say that this makes it even more pertinent to try and find a method for testing remedies in an objective way.

It is very difficult to check the level of potency very difficult, Like for battery u can test gravity through hygrometer, for BP instrument is there, but to check quality and potency no way ??

But, if it is not possible to check quality, how can you know what you are giving patients?

Bottom line - No one knows whether it affects remedies or not because no one knows how they work in the first place.

Unless an objective method of testing the remedies for their effectiveness with diagnostic tools can be developed, we will all keep guessing.

Request to homeopaths, please don't make a fool out of yourself by stating reasons which even you don't know are true or not.

If a remedy does not work you can blame it on numerous things, wrong remedy, wrong potency, fake remedy, x-rayed remedy (??) etc. As Jahr said, there is no way or knowing if a remedy is correct or not, unless it has worked on the patient:)

Don't take life too seriously, it ain't permanent:)

Hans makes a valid point- if X radiation affected remedies then Homeopaths working in Cornwall  would be having problems because of the high levels of background radiation there!
