Homeopathy Science

About Us

Dorly de Freitas Buchi, a renowned Brazilian researcher, holds a Ph.D. in Biological Sciences (Biophysics) from the Federal University of Rio de Janeiro. Her solid academic background is reflected in the publication of several scientific articles in the field of Cell Biology. Professor, for more than 40 years at the Federal University of Paraná, she combines extensive experience in higher education, both in undergraduate and graduate courses, and effective contributions in the sphere of the university administration. Her orientation activities are remarkable, from scientific initiation to doctorate, having promoted the training of a large number of young scientists.

Despite this exemplary academic trajectory, what makes Dorly a special human being are her unique qualities: loyalty, courage, tenderness, and tenacity. Woman, mother, sister, and friend, she is endowed with profound sensitivity, a conciliatory spirit, and the ability to aggregate people and ideals around a greater good. Her respect for life, in all its forms, has always guided her in search of health promotion and a better life for all. And so, in her continuous overcoming of challenges, guided by an acute scientific curiosity and her non-conformity with the paradigms and limitations of traditional medicine, in an untiring spirit and an unwavering purpose of serving collective interests, firmly carried out research based on highly diluted drugs and complex biological response modifiers. A significant part of the results of her efforts and her holistic view is presented in this book which, as an author, proposes to contribute to life, health, and the construction of happiness for all.

About Homeopathy

Immune System and Homeopathy Studies using macrophages treated with different homeopathic medicines have resulted in a significant increase in the activated/resident macrophage ratio compared to control groups (water, hydroalcoholic solution, and untreated). Different macrophage receptors were altered, both in expression and distribution, in addition to altering the production and release of different cytokines and reactive oxygen and nitrogen species…

Homeopathy Science

  • Like cures like: This principle states that a substance that can cause symptoms in a healthy person can cure those same symptoms in a sick person. For example, if a person gets a rash from contact with poison ivy, then a homeopathic remedy made from poison ivy might be used to treat a rash with similar symptoms.

  • The law of minimums: This principle states that the smaller the dose of a remedy, the greater its effect. Homeopathic remedies are often diluted to very high levels, but practitioners believe that this dilution makes them more effective.

  • The single remedy: This principle states that only one remedy should be given at a time, so that its effects can be clearly observed.

  • The totality of symptoms: This principle states that the remedy should be chosen based on the whole picture of the patient’s symptoms, not just the physical symptoms. This includes the patient’s emotional and mental state, as well as their lifestyle and preferences.

Homeopathy Science

When I was at secondary school, and I was getting ready to go to University in Human Science area, I met a childhood friend that was very, very happy. He said he was working in a Genetic lab at Federal University. And after talking a lot about how everything is fantastic, we agreed that in the afternoon he would show me everything because he was sure that I would love to know about the lab. And he was correct because from this afternoon my life changed. I got to enter the university in the biological area, where my passion for the knowledge of “small things”, molecules, microscopic life only grew. After I managed to overcome various personal and family difficulties I graduated and began the post-graduation master’s degree in Genetics.

During graduation, I got a scientific initiation scholarship and became a specialist in Histology and Histological Techniques, and so, after graduating, at the age of 21, I was approved in an official concurs and passed to teach at the university. At this age, I needed to study too much to give classes to medical students and finished my master’s degree. I never got tired of the nucleus of the cell, DNA, and so on, but during my doctorate, I moved to the cell periphery and beyond electron microscopy, which became one more passion. I specialized in macrophages and cell membrane, endocytosis, receptors, and cell activation. Then it was not a great change, but still, I moved from the center to the periphery.

During my childhood and youth, my world at Curitiba (Brazil) has undergone many changes, from the woodstove to the gas stove, the television, the pavement in more streets, and so on. And throughout my doctorate, the world knowledge took a leap with the popularization of the Internet. It was fantastic.

Until then my life, my joy, my curiosity, what moved me on where the “little things”. At the end of the ’90s, a new challenge emerged, as what happened when I was 17 when I met the genetics lab. Homeopathy has arisen in my life, totally unknown to me, as was genetics when I was 17 years old and was studying Latin. I had never used Homeopathy neither with myself nor with my children; I had never even read about homeopathy, just “knew” that it did not work. Almost at the same time, a friend with tuberculosis and a cousin with cancer in the lungs used inhalation of homeopathic medicine.

Because of my studies with macrophages, I knew that in both cases it was necessary to activate alveolar macrophages to get any result. As both had improved fast, and everyone, until then, told me that homeopathy did not work, I took some and tested in the lab over macrophages culture. And nothing happened! But I knew macrophages were activated since they improved their clinical symptoms. Therefore, as I never used homeopathy, perhaps I was doing something wrong. After talking with homeopaths, I tried to do succussion before putting the medicine at culture. Of course, before I did this, I and people at the lab laughed a lot, because hitting the bottle in the palm of my hand before using it, was like making a trick of magic. Awesome, less than 24 hours later the macrophages were activated. Because of my studies with macrophage receptors, I was sure the medicine should have an actives principle inside. But even using 30% of medicine in culture, the macrophages were very well, and this was incredible also. I used to put µL of substances (LPS, IFN, and so on) in a culture medium. The mystery was over a table and our curiosity was on. After this, a snowball was thrown down the hill.

Probably you are thinking about what happened to my friend and my cousin. No one lives forever, of course, and they both died sometime later. The first of AIDS, not of tuberculosis, and the second, of cancer in the lung 2 years later, not 3 months later, as was the prognosis. Both lived more than the initial prognosis!

During my academic life, I was “advisor” of many monographs, dissertations, and theses about macrophages (MΦ), bone marrow (BM) cells, lymph node lymphocytes (Ly), and tumor cells challenged with single and complex matrices to find the ones that can stimulate the immune system, without side effects – seeking for NEW FORMS OF IMMUNOTHERAPY. These new medicines are biological response modifiers and are produced with homeopathic techniques. All they need to be vigorously shaken to be effective. These products did not interfere in the cell cycle, did not damage the DNA molecule, and did not induce apoptosis. Briefly, they are not toxic, neither mitogenic nor mutagenic.

During these years, participating at National and International Conferences, many health professionals asked me to summarize the main results obtained, but in a more accessible language and quicker to understand than that found in scientific articles.
