How would 'Water Memory' change our approach to medicine?

    Hi all,

    Just an open prompting thought from this video:


    If water does indeed have a memory, which is not unreasonable to claim when linking to the work completed by Masaru Emoto.

    Would this give Homeopathy more credence?

    Is it actually the water alterations that do the healing and not the compound added, but the message delivered through the medium of water.

    Can we reproduce this effect and if so, how does it affect various pathogens and genetic abnormalities or indeed, even health DNA?

    Could this be linked to Cymatics:


    Possibly adding supportive for therapeutic ultrasound, but at a much more molecular level.

    This is only a humble post to see with the Podiatry community thinks, but would be good to get some RCT level research if any one has it about this 'Water Memory' and potential medical possibilities.

    Many Thanks!

    Water memory is a load of bull****.
    It is a scam perpetuated by homeopathy to justify their fraud.

    Water memory

    Water memory is the purported ability of water to retain a memory of substances previously dissolved in it even after an arbitrary number of serial dilutions. It has been claimed to be a mechanism by which homeopathic remedies work, even though they are diluted to the point that no single molecule of the original substance remains.

    Water memory defies conventional scientific understanding of physical chemistry knowledge and is not accepted by the scientific community. In 1988, Jacques Benveniste published a study supporting a water memory effect amid controversy in Nature, accompanied by an editorial by Nature's editor John Maddox urging readers to "suspend judgement" until the results could be replicated. In the years following publication, multiple supervised experiments were run by Benveniste's team, the United States Department of Defense,[1] BBC's Horizon programme,[2] and other researchers, but no team has ever reproduced Benveniste's results in controlled conditions.

    I tend to have the same opinion as Craig its a load of Cr** that water has a memory.

    There is no doubt that water has forgotten more than the world has ever known (and it did within 50millionths of a nanosecond).

    The bit that's interesting for me is included in the statement, Benveniste admitted to having noticed this himself. "He stated that certain individuals consistently get digital effects and other individuals get no effects or block those effects."

    Without looking for supernatural answers, is it correct? If it is correct: what percentage of people have the 'talent/skill'; Is it consistent; how can it be explained?

    If the above statement is true, depending on the extent of their 'talents', it might be necessary to prevent them from becoming researchers as double blind might at best mean 20/20 vision for them and at worst in the land of the blind the one eyed man is king.

    If I was flogging homeopathic medicines I would search out the 'individuals who consistently get digital effects' to do my research. It is possible that a form of subconscious self selection takes place in this area and that these individuals are already more concentrated in homeopathic research? Why limit it to homeopathic research?

    If you actually read the posts on Podiatry Arena, you will find this forum to spend their time on evidence based science. Craig does a good job in bringing to light the pseudoscience that continues to proliferate in the media and on the web.

    If water had memory than just think about that for a moment. Our body is made up of about 60% water. 70% of our total water content is intracellular. Knowing that, why not close your eyes for 15 minutes before going to bed, and meditate on your body water absorbing your thoughts of love and radiant health. Allow the power of your spiritual intent to carry every water molecule with the memory of being young and healthy.

    Maybe then you will be less likely to get "disease" as you will then be at "ease". You will not need doctors or medication, you will always be balanced and healthy.

    Let us know how it works out for you.

    And I suppose if all the water on earth has always been there since the beginning of time going round and round in a cycle then it must have trillions and zillions and squillions of memories so how does it know which memory to retain at any one time.

    Must be magic :))
