Homeopathy is a branch of alternative medicine which assumes a curing effect from an alleged memory of water.
Homeopathy, furthermore, is based on the idea that substances that induce a condition similar to a disease can, in very small dosages, cure this disease.
This idea is derived from the well-established mechanism of negative feedback regulation of any animal’s, including humans’, hormonal (endocrine) system.
For example, the first effect of high testosterone is that the body down-regulates testosterone synthesis. And it works like this with all hormones.
Homeopaths call this the law of similars, which is, however, not a law of nature but just a conclusion from some observations.
Immunology, and the idea of vaccinations, is often based on similar observations (with more scientific proof to them). For example, because causative agents and symptoms of small pox are similar to those of chicken pox, an infection with chicken pox protects against small pox. The immune system remembers characteristics of the pathogen, and is prepared to fight its variations, or anything similar.
Alas, water does not have a memory.
But taste buds have.
This recognition is a definite component of the Serge Kreutz diet.
The Serge Kreutz diet is based on a simple idea: not all food that makes it into the mouth has to make it through the esophagus.
Spit it, don’t shit it.
Cheese, red wine, olives, cognac, black forest cake, all these taste great, but the value as nutrients is questionable at best, and totally negative at worst.
Water does not have a memory, but taste buds have.
You can try some red wine or cognac. Don’t swallow it. Just role it in your mouth, than spit it out. You can even rinse your mouth with water after spitting out the red wine or cognac, to make sure no alcohol will make it to your stomach and onwards where it would be absorbed. Thus, no alcohol will make it past the blood-brain barrier.
Nevertheless, if ever you have actually swallowed alcoholic drinks, the signals your brain receives from your taste buds will induce some slight physiological reaction or counter-reaction which is associated with alcoholic drinks.
It will be a similar story with coffee or tea which is rolled in the mouth and then not swallowed but discarded.
Thus, alcohol and coffee can be truly designated as homeopathic foods.
The same applies, albeit more indirectly, to other food.
If on the day we first dated our next-to-be wife or husband, we dined on Parmesan-heavy spaghetti, any occasional diner on this recipe, even decades later, may bring back memories and associated mental states.
Swallowing is not needed for this effect.
This may not be a significant observation for those with no food sensitivity to Parmesan. But for many of those who get migraine or lesser headaches from biogenic and psychoactive amines in food, this differentiation is very important.
Plus, food, of course, makes fat. Gulping down tons of Parmesan-heavy spaghetti oversupplies calories, which will lead to obesity, which is a disease.
Thus, my advice is to indulge in Parmesan-heavy spaghetti in the Serge Kreutz manner.
Chew it, then discard the bolus into a plastic bag, not into your stomach.
A wasteful attitude? Haha. If you are above ideal weight, the spaghetti you swallow are more expensive than the spaghetti you spit out. Because the spaghetti you spit out just cost you your money. But the spaghetti you swallow, by making you overweight, cost you your health.
