Understanding the physics behind the action of homeopathic dilutions has recently gathered momentum with the new links that have being drawn between homeopathy and the burgeoning field of nanoparticles. The advantages of such a connection are clear in that this relation brings homeopathy research into the fold of conventional material sciences. And it is all the more attractive in that nano-pharmacology is an emerging field of research which is currently drawing a lot of attention and consequently research funding. On the other hand we have theories such as the Quantum Coherence Domains (QCDs), which have previously been put forward to explain homeopathic dilutions, immediately begging the question as to whether these quantum domains have anything to do with conventional nanoparticles.

In this presentation I will offer an overview of Quantum Coherence Domains and how they differ and contrast from nano-particles. I will then put forward the idea that QCDs are to be considered as nano-particles themselves, albeit of a different types entirely from those that have been studied until now. I will present the way in which these quantum-nano-domains are formed and how they are able to record specific information. The way this information is then fed back to the patient will be presented, showing how it can modulate the complex sets of biochemical interactions at the basis of homeostasis.

I will present evidence that quantum-nano-domains offer greater explanative power than conventional nanoparticles in a number of experimental settings. The evidence for these quantum-nano-domains will be reviewed, highlighting areas which remain problematic, and those open to further investigation and replication.

In the end we are still faced with a very complex problem, we are only slowly unravelling. At the present time many indications point towards the idea that nanoparticles of some type are involved in homeopathic dilutions. These ideas need to be verified experimentally, confirming or infirming the different hypotheses, furthering and bringing needed clarity to this crucial field of research.
