More than two hundred years of homeopathy’s existence has been accompanied by mistrust caused by the use of very small, if not “non-material” doses of active substances. In the last decade, a sufficient number of experimental confirmations of the biological activity of low-concentration solutions and even single molecules of various substances have been obtained .
However, homeopathic practice deals with drugs that use high potencies, where the presence of at least one feta molecule can only be spoken of in a probabilistic sense. At first glance, this approach contradicts the molecular theory of the structure of matter, according to which the number of molecules in any volume is, of course, determined by the Avogadro constant, and the dissolution is below 1024 M is meaningless. Indeed, homeopathic potentiation, understood as a common dilution, does not answer the question of a material carrier of biological activity beyond zero concentrations of a substance.
