The biological action of homeopathy
in neuronal cells

This proves that homeopathy acts on cells in the laboratory

Experiment :

The neuronal cells of the spinal cord produce allopregnanolone, a hormone involved in the management of stress and anxiety.

Step 1

The researchers isolated neuronal cells from a rat’s spinal cord.


Step 2

The neuronal cells are separated into two separate groups: 

  • the first group is treated with water (control group)
  • the second group is treated with a homeopathic solution, namely a diluted and succussed solution of Gelsemium sempervirens 5 CH


Result :

The cells treated with a homeopathic solution of Gelsemium sempervirens 5 CH produce 5 times more allopregnanolone than the cells that are treated with water1.

The presented data can, under no circumstances, be extrapolated to any property or clinical use in humans that would require additional studies.
