The biological action of homeopathy
on duckweed

This proves that homeopathy acts on plants in the laboratory

Experiment :

Step 1

Researchers poison duckweed with arsenic. The growth of the duckweed, which is thus “stressed”, decreases as compared to the unpoisoned duckweed.

Step 2

They are then 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 that is prepared using arsenic (Arsenicum album) 


Result (after 2 to 6 days)

The duckweed treated with the homeopathic solution recover and resume their growth faster than those treated with water.

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