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.

The existence and unexpected pathways in my life.

In this book, I tell the story of my life and my relationship with science, and especially how this journey resulted in 20 years of basic research in homeopathy.

High-dilution pharmacology is emerging as a pioneer in the domain of nanomedicine and is providing greater plausibility to homeopathy. Pharmacokinetics is dedicated to the fate of substances administered to a living organism. Pharmacodynamics studies the effects of these substances on the body.

Highly diluted medications are harder for the pharmacokinetic investigation, due to the lack of analytical methods having enough sensitivity. Pharmacodynamic effects of homeopathic remedies have been proven in several dozens of animals and in vitro laboratory studies, showing signals of amplification mechanisms at the cell level.

It is not necessary to involve many receptors to have a strong effect. Receptor triggering or modulation could also be physicochemical (heat, radiation, vibration, sound waves, or particular structures of water or solvent).

The membrane potential is a source of electromagnetic noise generated by continuous vibrations of charges and molecular bonds, and by fluctuations in the dynamics of ion channels.

The lipid-water interfaces are transition regions with a very refined electrical structure, and highly sensitive to electric fields so that even the slightest change in their electrical properties has an impact on the structure-function of proteins in the same membrane.

As we discussed in another post (Epigenetics) the study of cell biology has shown us that it all starts at the cell membrane, which through small changes (exposure of a positive or negative signal) can open or close channels, altering the whole physiology.

There is no single unitary explanation for the action of HDs on the organism, however, an accumulation of evidence from various fields of science is building up a conceivable and plausible picture, in which biophysics is integrated with molecular biology and system biology.

The importance of water to living processes derives not only from its ability to form hydrogen bonds with other water molecules but especially from its capacity to interact with various types of biological molecules. Protein binding to specific DNA sequences is a key element in various biological functions related to the processing of genetic information by regulating transcription, replication, and recombination.

The structure and energetics of water at the protein- DNA interface show that water distributions exhibit sequence-dependent variations, suggesting that interfacial waters can serve as a ‘‘hydration fingerprint’’ of a given DNA sequence.

If you want to know more, I suggest reading a good revision made by Paolo Bellavite et al., Homeopathy 103 (2014), pp. 22-43 DOI: 10.1016/j.homp.2013.08.002. In this post, I repeat many ideas from them.
