My Life With Science!

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 its continuous overcoming of challenges, guided by an acute scientific curiosity and its 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 his efforts and his holistic view is presented in this book which, as an author, proposes to contribute to life, health and the construction of happiness for all.

The presence of the unexpected in my life!

Dra. Dorly de Freitas Buchi, the renowned Brazilian researcher, holds a Ph.D. in Biological Sciences (Biophysics) from the Federal University of Rio de Janeiro. His 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. Its orientation activities are remarkable, from scientific initiation to doctorate, having promoted the training of a large number of young scientists.

Homeopathy, a medical specialty created by the german physician Christian Friedrich Samuel Hahnemann (1755-1843), is one of the complementary practices recommended by the World Health Organization (WHO). Its use in animals has increased greatly in recent years, mainly due to the incentive to practice organic creations. Farmers and veterinarians are increasingly encouraged to reduce levels of chemicals that leave residual accumulations in herds, such as antibiotics and hormones. Organic creations are already a reality, or rather a requirement in the first world countries, and Brazil follows this trend. Low toxicity is one of the hallmarks of homeopathy, as high dilutions of substances of vegetable, mineral or animal origin are mandatory in the preparations of homeopathic medicines, these substances act subtly, increasing the natural defenses of the animals and do not leave harmful chemical residues.

In pets, too, the use of homeopathy is growing, including as an adjuvant treatment of neoplastic diseases, whose priority treatment is surgical. In these cases, homeopathy can act by modulating the immune system in increasing the animal’s organic defenses against tumor metastasis. Recent investigations with a homeopathic compound composed of Calcarea carbonic and associations, designated M8 for experimental purposes, demonstrated the decrease of metastasis of melanoma in mice by a direct inhibition of the capacity of adhesion and invasion of the tumor cell. This work was developed in the Laboratory of Neoplastic and Inflammatory Cells of UFPR, Brazil, and was published in the scientific journal BMC Cancer (Guimarães et al., BMC Cancer 2010, 10: 113). This same complex was used in a was used by a veterinarian in the treatment of a horse ethmoid tumor (nostril): “With only 5 drops administered 3 times a day for 6 months, there was significant regression of the tumor, and the animal may return to its training routine. There was no cure, because with the suspension of the administration of the drug the tumor evolved again, “said the veterinarian.
