Background: A lot of publications exist about the persistence of stock material in high homeopathic dynamizations (HHDs), discriminant nuclear magnetic resonance (NMR) signal between remedies, quality requirements for GMP and clinical data. Are all these publications giving coherent information about the exact nature (signature) of the homeopathic medicines explaining the quality requirements needed for registration of homeopathic medicines?

Objectives: The present study program (DYNHOM) is aimed to approach the question of the nature of the homeopathic medicine in a comprehensive manner. Having a look from different perspectives, using different modern measurement methods, the nature, and/or signature of each homeopathic stock in the final medicine would be detectable.

Methods: Different universities were involved in this research. Each specialized in one of the measurement technique: liquid chromatography (UHPLC-UV), NMR, laser techniques including scanning electron microscopy and light scattering (DLS/ZP/NTA/SEM-EDX). Two remedies were chosen as references: a triturated medicine Cuprum metallicum and a soluble medicine Gelsemium sempervirens. Multiple controls were used to strengthen possible conclusions.

Results: Due to the step-by-step dilution/dynamization process, solid material was identified in all preparations, including specificities in quantities, chemical compositions, shapes, electromagnetic and electro-photonic signals but no trace of the original markers in HHD.

Conclusion: In the homeopathic medicines, there is specific material and electronic signal even in HHD; the solvent behavior is specifically modified by these elements only when a dynamization process has been applied during the preparation.
