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.

Throughout the journey, very interesting historical facts, closely linked to the history of science, opened in my eyes.

GENIUS EPIDEMICUS -Christian Friedrich Samuel Hahnemann 1755-1843
1799 – 3 years after the “Birth” of homeopathy – Samuel Hahnemann gained fame throughout Europe for the exceptional success in treating a Scarlet Fever Epidemic in Germany with the use of Belladonna, with what he described as genius epidemicus.
The way the most appropriate medicine is chosen during an outbreak or epidemic is similar to how the homeopathic physician chooses a drug for a patient: the symptoms of several individuals during the epidemic are analyzed, composing a single picture of symptoms, and a medicine is chosen for this complete picture. Thus, this medicine can be given to the whole community, aimed at preventing that disease. This is how Hahnemann cared for scarlet fever in Germany in the 19th century. XVIII, typhus in Leipizig in 1813, and cholera in 1831 in Europe.

After Hahnemann, in 1854, homeopathy was effective in a cholera epidemic in England. In the USA, between 1862 and 1864, during a diphtheria epidemy: the mortality rate was much lower in homeopathic patients. The same occurred in the Spanish flu in 1918: more than 62,000 cases treated homeopathically, with a mortality rate of only 0.7%.

Isn`t that great or what?
