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.

Our research team at Federal University have studied in vitro and in vivo cancer cells treated with homeopathy in the last 20 years. After using different products and analyzing the different results carefully, we arrived at two complexes produced with homeopathic techniques, coded as M1 and M8. The results obtained using these two products were surprising and some were even published in scientific journals with good impact.

Melanoma is a highly metastatic skin cancer type. Conventional chemotherapy drugs currently in used are of limited value, thus more effective therapies are needed. This work aimed at investigation and elucidation of possible changes in tumor cell features triggered by highly diluted natural complex (M1 and M8) in vitro treatment using melanoma cells.

For this several parameters were analyzed, focusing on possible changes in mRNA expression of invasion related proteins, migration and proliferation; and evaluation of reactive species; melanogenesis and multidrug resistance mechanism. Finally, glycoconjugates evaluation was performed.

The results clearly demonstrated that M1 and M8 treatment accounts to reduction in metastasis related features important by decreasing metaloproteases gene expression (MT1-MMP, MMP-2 and MMP-9), and your gelatinase activity, as well as cell migration. The latter was, possibly due to increased reactive oxygen (ROS), release of nitric oxide (NO) and reduction intracellular NO. Interestingly this effect was accompanied by melanin synthesis reduction and activity and expression reduction of tyrosinase (TYR), as well as TYRP-1, TYRP-2 and MITF expression. Finally, was observed reduction of drugs resistance mechanism (ABC transporters). As for glycoconjugates, there was a clear reduction in the secretion of hyaluronic acid and the gene expression of hyaluronidases. Still, it was evident the reduction of gene expression of proteoglycans and heparan sulfate enzymes modifiers. Taken together these findings suggest that metastatic phenotypic characteristics are modified by M1 and M8 treatment, justifying previous in vitro and in vivo findings.

Thus, these complexes can be considered as promising adjuvant cancer therapy candidates.
