Leading Science Journal Publishes Study Confirming Homeopathy Helps with the Effects of Sleep Deprivation

For centuries homeopaths have been using homeopathic remedies to help individuals with sleep problems. Cocculus indica, (abbreviated cocc) is one such homeopathic remedy.

Scientists at The Rappaport Faculty of Medicine, Behavioural Neuroscience Lab,  in Haifa, Israel concluded that “the treatment with cocc 30c recovers both short-term behavioral and the long-term hormonal modulations following SD[sleep deprivation].” The article on the successful experiment was published in Neuroscience and calls the homeopathic remedy treatment- “nanoparticle treatment”.

Abstract
Sleep is an essential physiological process that underlies crucial cognitive functions as well as emotional reactivity. Thus, sleep deprivation (SD) may exert various deleterious effects. In this study, we aimed to examine the adverse behavioral and hormonal effects of SD and a potential treatment with Plant-derived nanoparticle treatment – cocc 30c. The study was a 4-arm trial with randomization and double-blinding of verum and placebo treatments. SD was induced by using the Multiple Platform Method for 48h. The effects of SD were evaluated behaviorally (pre-pulse inhibition (PPI), startle response and rotor-rod) at baseline as well as at 6, 12, 24h, and 14days post deprivation. cocc 30c treatment was administrated Per Os every three hours starting immediately after baseline tests and for a period of 24h. On day 14, blood samples were taken and serum levels of corticosterone, testosterone, serotonin and leptin were tested. We found that cocc 30c improved PPI 12 and 24h post deprivation, likewise, cocc 30c improved motor learning. On day 14 SD led to increased startle response that was ameliorated by cocc 30c. Likewise, SD led to increased levels of corticosterone and serotonin while decreasing testosterone and leptin. Interestingly, cocc 30c treatment has moderated these hormonal alterations. We conclude that the treatment with cocc 30c recovers both short-term behavioral and the long-term hormonal modulations following SD.

  1. Every time homeoremedies help in sleeping disorders, we must understand that the influence of those remedies is done in the brain because sleep is a brain phenomenon. Here one can see my neuromodulator informatics-cybernetic (bioinformatic) point of view, done with the help of a good friend who speaks English better than I do. Dr. Carlos Häubi Segura:

  2. Nanoparticles are the vehicles of the information, the actual influential factor of homeoremedies

  3. In JIPMER hospital Puducherry has conducted a study on healthy voluntaries about effects of homoeopathic medicines on insomnia and found out the changes in serum melatonin and cortisol levels. The findings were published in Indian journal of homoeopathic research in 2008.

  4. Dr. M. Prakash Rao: would you publish the link where we can see and read the document?
    Best regards.
