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.

Dilution and succussion I

After testing a remedy in detail on several people, Hahnemann began testing the accuracy of these drug profiles, using it on the sick. At first, he gave them the normal dose, but he had the same problem as he hated in conventional practice. Many of the drugs were toxic and had harmful side effects. He then began to dilute the drugs, administering them in diminishing doses. Contrary to what he assumed – that if he reduced the dosage of the drugs, they would become less effective – he found that if they were given according to the pattern of symptoms found in the trials, they were more effective and had a longer lasting effect. These observations by Hahnemann showed that the curative doses were always much smaller than the doses which had produced similar symptoms during their trials in a healthy man. Hahnemann began to use the “sucussão”, that is, to stir the dilutions while they were made. Strangely enough, at the time it was a common practice – alchemists often shook, moved, and performed various other manipulations on the solutions to activate the “life force” or “spiritual force” that they believed to be inherent in all substances. Although its original intention was to reduce the toxic effects of the drugs, Hahnemann said that the process of succussion between each dilution made the drugs more active and specific to the individuals sensitive to them. When prepared in this way, which Hahnemann called “dynamization,” the efficacy of the drug depended even more on the detailed adequacy of the symptom picture of the test to the patient’s unique symptom picture. When these frames were carefully combined, according to Hahnemann, these “dynamizations” stimulated the reaction and self-healing and patients “cured” of the disease. The dynamization process is the release of the dynamic energy in the medicaments by means of molecular vibration (sucussão or crushing). Power is said of the end result of each step of the process of dynamization and dilution.

The curative power would manifest itself with the smallest possible dose of the drug dynamized, so that the dose contained almost exclusively pure drug force, freely developed, of the non-material type, only dynamically producing effects so powerful that they would never be obtained with the pure drug substance, even if ingested in large quantities. The idea of high dynamizations and dilutions would become one of the main areas of controversy in the homeopathic system. Hahnemann and other leading scientists understood that there should be a physical limit for the dilution of an original substance, from which there would no longer be any residue of the original substance. However, at the time of the origin of homeopathy, no one knew what this real limit of dilution was, and homeopaths reported remarkable effects at very high dilutions. Later, a scientist named Amadeo Avogadro found that if the substance were diluted twelve times at a ratio of one to one hundred, the probability of having any residue of the original molecule in the preparation was practically zero.

However, dilutions above this had been used successfully for decades prior to this discovery. The question of dilution and dynamism would not only become one of the main points of controversy between homeopathy and modern conventional medicine, but it is still one of the main areas of conflict within the homeopathic community itself.
