Homeopathy was introduced in Brazil by a French disciple of Hahnemann, Benoit-Jules Mure, who arrived here in 1840. His first disciple in Brazil was the Portuguese physician João Vicente Martins who propagated Homeopathy in the north and northeast of Brazil. Homeopathy rapidly spread in Brazil and in the late nineteenth century was embraced by the Brazilian positivist movement through its adherents of the Military Engineering Institute in Rio de Janeiro. This resulted in great official support from the Republican government for Homeopathy, recognizing its teaching and practice and creating wards at the Army’s Central Hospital and the Hospital da Marinha. Homeopathy in Brazil maintains its strength and growth until the end of the 1920s, when its decline slowly begins, perhaps due to the advent of the era of chemical therapy in medicine, for the appearance of therapeutic weapons such as sulfas in the beginning and the antibiotics later.
In the last century, wishing to definitively legalize the situation of the Homeopathic School of Brazil, the Federal Council of Medicine, the official body of Brazilian Medicine, recognized Homeopathy as a medical specialty by Ordinance No. 1000 of 1980, when it ceased to be considered alternative therapy, to become, as in other countries, an official therapeutic form. Also in 1988, the Brazilian Homeopathic Medical Association was granted a seat in the AMB Board of Specialties and the Proof of Homeopathy Specialist certificate was established by the CFM-AMB-AMHB agreement since 1990. CFM Resolutions 1,295 / 89, 1,441 / 94, 1.634 / 02.1.659 / 03 and 1.666 / 03 confirm homeopathy as a medical specialty. In 1996 it completed 200 years of existence and is strictly a medical science, a revolution in conventional medicine and the art of healing.
