Homeopathic HGH Explained
I love the story of Horton and probably shouldn’t drag him down into the mud of homeopathic [tag-tec best hgh]hgh[/tag-tec] marketing. However, it helps visualize the point.
Too many of our hgh reviews of oral spray products have required an explanation of what the potencies of homeopathic remedies mean. We were running out of fun ways to explain it and were faced with dozens of additional products to review that claimed to contain homeopathic human growth hormone.
So the long avoided basic explanation of homeopathy is now being posted.
As a firm believer in alternative medicine, I would like to believe in homeopathy. It is just tough.
I guess we should start with the basics.
Brief History of Homeopathy
Supposedly the principle of homeopathy dates back to Hippocrates around 400BC. However, there is a big void with no writings on the subject. The concept appears back on the scene in the 1790’s.
A German doctor by the name of Samuel Hannemann gets the credit for being the founder of homeopathy. Remember this is at a time when “regular” doctors were into bloodletting and leaches.
Dr. Hanneman published his first work on the subject in 1810.
Homeopathic remedies are supposed to stimulate the body to resist negative toxins and thereby heal itself.
The Law of Similars
An example of the principle of similarities would be treating poison ivy/oak. Here you take a dose of Rhus Toxicodendron 6X. This remedy is made from a plant that contains the actual chemical that causes the severe itchy oozing rash.
You take what causes the problem to stimulate the body’s own healing power. You take poison ivy to cure poison ivy.
The “X” stands for dilutions by ten. A 1X is 1 part the initial substance and 9 parts water or 1/10. To get a 2X, you take one part of 1X and mix it with nine parts water. Roughly 1/100. Extending this out a 24X would be 1/1,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000.
The “C” in a homeopathic remedy stands for dilutions by 100. 1C + 1/100, 2C = 1/10,000 with 12C being 1/1,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000.
Basically the 24X is the same dilution as 12C. Homeopathic advocates believe there is a difference between the two styles of dilution.
6X is roughly the equivalent of a dose of hgh in a bath tub. A 24X would be like injecting a dose of hgh into the Atlantic Ocean. A 30X would be like squirting the hgh into the water off the coast of England and having somebody dip a spray bottle into the Pacific off the coast of Hawaii.
That is not really true. There is not enough water on the planet to get to 26X.
The idea that taking a small amount of a substance stimulates the immune system makes sense. Many vaccines work on this principle.
I have taken the 6X Rhus Toxicodendron and think it might help with poison ivy/oaks outbreaks. However at the first sign of any outbreak, I also start using jewel weed lotion which is a natural herbal antidote.
The fact that 6X means one part per million, does start to get close to my level of believability. My friends who are homeopathic healers claim that the 6X does not work because of the amount on ingredient in it. It works because of the energetic imprinting.
This leads to the strangest part of homeopathy. This is the fact that the system is based on the principle that the more diluted a remedy is, the more powerful a healing agent it is supposed to be.
So the 24X with all the zeros is more powerful than the 6X.
The interesting thing is that at 24X there is absolutely no way to mathematically prove that there is a single molecule of the initial substance inside a bottle of spray.
This is all based on physics and a concept called Avogadro’s number. I am not going to fill space with a physics class other than a mention that this concept is based on hydrogen gas which has a very small molecule. Human Growth Hormone is a chain of 191 amino acids. That is a very large molecule so the nothingness comes about a few dilutions earlier.
At 6X even our pal Horton is going to have a hard time hearing the hgh.
There are a number of products on the market that take things even further. 30X, 30C and even as much as 100C. Let’s just look at 30X.
At 24X you have a bottle with no growth hormone in it. You take this solution and do 6 more dilutions by 10. So you now have a solution that contains 1/1,000,000 of the hgh that is in a 24X. That means the bottle contains 1/1,000,000 of nothing.
Even Horton couldn’t hear that with a hearing aid.
If you are thinking of purchasing a homeopathic hgh, I suggest thinking about what you have just read.
I have more to say but it would make this post two to three times longer and I am just trying to cover the basics. So this will be a short series.
There is more to say about homeopathy and I haven’t even warmed up about how even if you believe in homeopathy, homeopathic hgh is a fraud.
