Ty Bollinger of The Truth About Cancer interviews Dr. Keith Scott-Mumby.

Ty Bollinger: Talk a little bit about homeopathy. I know youâ€™re a homeopath.
Dr. Keith Scott-Mumby: Indeed, and Iâ€™m on a homeopathic advisory board back in Europe. The only thing is I canâ€™t talk a â€œlittle bitâ€ about homopathy. I can run out the camera batteriesâ€¦
Ty Bollinger: Iâ€™m sure you could.
Dr. Keith Scott-Mumby: No, seriously, Iâ€™ll try hack it down. Okay, first of all itâ€™s important to understand the model because a lot of people have probably heard the word and theyâ€™re probably seeing all the scoffing and derision, and thereâ€™s nothing in it. You know we proved there are no chemicals in it, therefore itâ€™s a fraud and think well it must be a fraud when, in fact, itâ€™s one of the most healing, restorative modalities I know.
The thing is itâ€™s not based on the amount of stuff. Itâ€™s based on an energetic signal; an information signal, if you like. So this is homeopathy in two or three sentences. You pick a substance that copies the illness. Not one that opposes it, but one that copies it. For example, if someone has scarlet fever you chose belladonna, because if you take belladonna your face goes all bright red and your throatâ€™s sore, hectic temperature, you feel ghastly. Taking belladonna is like having scarlet fever, so itâ€™s a good remedy for scarlet fever.
Itâ€™s called â€œlike cures like.â€ So youâ€™re looking for a mimic of the disease. A conventional doctor would take an antagonist, so you take your aspirin to lower temperature. Different kinds of opposing ideas.
This is, first of all, identify something that copies your illness. Then you dilute it. Now this is the weird part that doctors and scientists canâ€™t get a hold of. Itâ€™s called potentization. And you can dilute it one in ten, one in ten, one in ten, one in ten, one in ten. And after 12 dilutions youâ€™ve passed the Avogadro number so we know there is no belladonna left.
Well, interestingly, if you hitch it up to a spectrographic transmitter you find that the more you dilute it the more it starts transmitting energies. And now you canâ€™t argue with a spectrograph. Itâ€™s the most exquisitely sensitive scientific instrument we have. Thatâ€™s what tells you thereâ€™s manganese on a star thatâ€™s a thousand billion light years away. You canâ€™t argue with a spectrograph. And yet the homeopathic remedies actually start to broadcast the more you dilute them.
Thereâ€™s another series that goes a hundred by a hundred, by a hundred, by a hundred. Thatâ€™s called a C series. So youâ€™ve got the D or ten series, or the C/100 series. So get rid of any concern that youâ€™ve removed the substance. Thatâ€™s true, you have. But, of course, whatâ€™s happened is that youâ€™ve imprinted the signal in each dilution and it gets re-imprinted on the water.
Thatâ€™s the third point of homeopathy. Itâ€™s â€œlike cures like,â€ then the dilutions, and then what we call â€œsuccussion.â€ In making the dilutions the homeopath will bang it on his hand like that a few times. Then do the next dilution into plain water, bang it on his hand. Thatâ€™s called succussion and it enhances the transmission of the signal from each substance.
And although youâ€™ll read all over the place that homeopathy has been proven not to workâ€¦ First of all, you canâ€™t prove anything doesnâ€™t work. You can only fail to prove it does work. There are a thousand studies showing itâ€™s highly effective. In fact thereâ€™s a very good one that was published in The Lancet in 1994. They did it three times because they couldnâ€™t believe it was working. Three times it performed better than placebo.
