This paper offers a theory for establishing the scientific basis of homoeopathic medicines followed by an instrumentation technique named as ′dielectric dispersion of ordered molecular groups of sugar of milk caused by potentised homoeo - medicines for verification of the proposed theory. Usually one studies anomalous dielectric dispersion of a material caused by intra-molecular binding forces of separate molecules. The authors of this paper extend this concept to ordered molecular groups. The theoretical analysis suggests that there will be anomalous dielectric dispersion at selected frequencies specific to shape, size and number of atoms in the ordered molecular group of the material. Now, homoeopathic medicines, as is felt by several modern investigators including the authors of this paper, are ordered molecular groups of the vehicle of potentisation. The instrumentation method, supported by the properly developed theory mentioned above, is described in this paper to observe the frequency domain signature of the sugar of milk soaked with homoeopathic medicine. The anomalous dielectric dispersion of the medicine-soaked sugar of milk, which occurred at acoustic resonant frequencies of the material, were observed repeatedly and recorded through the experimental arrangement. The results were further confirmed by blind experiments. Thus the experiments validate the theoretical model. Further, the experimental results and the nature of results obtained from MATLAB - simulation support each other giving additional confidence in the approach.
