The world of homeopathy was plunged into deep crisis this week as it was revealed that water had lost its memory.
And efforts to find a homeopathic remedy have so far proved fruitless.
‘A watery version of Alzheimer’s seems to have occurred,’ said one homeopathy practitioner. ‘And it’s a bit of a vicious circle trying to find a cure.’
But Dr Miles Schofield, a leading expert on alternative medicine, said he had a beaker of homeopathic water in his lab that appeared to have lost its memory but could still play the Bach flower remedies, a Chopin nocturne and several pieces by Thelonius Monk.
‘This little beaker of water remarkably can’t remember which tap or reservoir it came out of,’ he said, ‘or cure boils, but it still has this amazing ability – for water – to perform from the classical and jazz repertoire, albeit in a highly diluted form.
‘Such is the power of homeopathy – and water,’ Dr Schofield declared.
