Background: High-diluted homoeopathic medicines practically contain no medicinal molecules. The disease-curing mechanism of homoeopathic medicines has not yet been adequately understood. Acceptable knowledge of this mechanism is essential for further development of homoeopathic science. Objectives: The purpose of this article is to provide a phenomenological model to understand the interaction mechanism between homoeopathic medicines and the diseased cell (DC), which cure diseases with a view to build a conceptual framework that would facilitate subsequent clinical and theoretical investigations. Methods: We have proposed the formation of hydrogen bonded nano and micro clusters (NAM) during the preparation (succession) of homoeopathic medicines. NAM are composed of effective ionic charge (such as O+, H + and other ions) distribution patterns (CDPs). During the electrostatic interaction between CDP around NAM and that around DC, H + ion (proton) or other ion tunnelling takes place, which normalises the highly disordered (higher entropy) state of the CDP around DC to bring it to the normal state. Results: NAM is DC dependent. The entropy change around the DDP leads to information change, which is transmitted to the brain through neurotransmitters to complete the disease remediation process. Proton or ion tunnelling from NAM to DC is quantum mechanical in nature. Conclusion: A novel phenomenological model demonstrating the interaction between DC and homoeopathic medicines (NAM) has been proposed that cures the disease. Ion tunnelling, entropy and related information change (cells signalling) taking place during the healing process appeared to be associated with biological phenomena, yet to be fully developed.
