ABSTRACT

In addition to the recognized application in chronic diseases, individualized homeopathy can also act in a resolutive or complementary way in acute cases, including epidemic diseases. However, to achieve this intent, it presents a specific semiologic and therapeutic methodology that must be followed and respected, with the risk of not presenting the desired efficacy and safety. In the case of epidemic diseases, which due to the virulence of their agents causes a common symptomatological picture in most susceptible individuals, the individualized homeopathic medicine (homeopathic medicine of the epidemic genius) should present similarity with the set of characteristic symptoms and signs of the patients affected in the different stages of each epidemic outbreak. Studies show the efficacy and safety of this prophylactic and/or therapeutic practice in several epidemics of the past. Therefore, after the survey of possible homeopathic drugs individualized from the epidemic genius of each epidemic, its prophylactic and/or large-scale therapeutic application should be supported by previous clinical trials that demonstrate its efficacy and safety, in line with the ethical and bioethical aspects of research involving human beings. Fulfilling these premises of good clinical practice, we developed the current protocol with the objective of investigating, in a randomized, double-blind and placebo-controlled clinical trial, the effectiveness and safety of possible individualized homeopathic drugs of epidemic genius of COVID-19, in adjuvant and complementary treatment of patients affected by the disease. If effectiveness and safety are confirmed, and only in this condition, the medicine may be used in a generalized and collective manner in the treatment and prevention of the current epidemic. (AU)

ABSTRACT

Além da reconhecida aplicação nas doenças crônicas, a homeopatia individualizada também pode atuar de forma resolutiva ou complementar nos casos agudos, incluindo as doenças epidêmicas. No entanto, para atingir esse intento, apresenta uma metodologia semiológica e terapêutica específica que deve ser seguida e respeitada, com o risco de não apresentar a eficácia e a segurança desejada. No caso das doenças epidêmicas, que pela virulência dos seus agentes provoca um quadro sintomatológico comum na maioria dos indivíduos suscetíveis, o medicamento homeopático individualizado (medicamento homeopático do gênio epidêmico) deve apresentar semelhança com o conjunto de sinais e sintomas característicos dos pacientes acometidos nos diferentes estágios de cada surto epidêmico. Estudos evidenciam a eficácia e a segurança desta prática profilática e/ou terapêutica em diversas epidemias do passado. Assim sendo, após o levantamento dos possíveis medicamentos homeopáticos individualizados do gênio epidêmico de cada epidemia, sua aplicação profilática e/ou terapêutica em larga escala deve ser sustentada por ensaios clínicos prévios que demonstrem sua eficácia e segurança, em consonância com os aspectos éticos e bioéticos da pesquisa envolvendo seres humanos. Cumprindo essas premissas da boa prática clínica, elaboramos o atual protocolo com o objetivo de investigar, em ensaio clínico randomizado, duplo-cego e placebo-controlado, a eficácia e a segurança de possíveis medicamentos homeopáticos individualizados do gênio epidêmico da COVID-19, em tratamento adjuvante e complementar de pacientes acometidos pela doença. Caso a a eficácia e a segurança se confirme, e tão somente, o(s) medicamento(s) poderão ser utilizado de forma generalizada e coletiva no tratamento e na prevenção da atual epidemia. (AU)

ABSTRACT

Estamos no meio da pandemia do Covid-19, em franco desenvolvimento no Brasil. No momento há perspectivas terapêuticas medicamentosa sem fases iniciais de teste, especialmente para o tratamento dos casos graves, aqueles que implicam em internação ou encaminhamento para Unidades de Terapia Intensiva. Pouco tem sido abordado sobre tentativas de tratamento de pacientes com síndrome respiratória leve. Não há escolha terapêutica efetiva para o início do quadro e, desta forma, a doença cursa de acordo com a resposta imune ou suscetibilidade individual do acometido, e há muito pouco de efetivo e específico que altere a história natural dessa enfermidade.

ABSTRACT

No Brasil, a primeira epidemia documentada clínica e laboratorialmente foi em 1981-1982 e desde então vem ocorrendo no Brasil de maneira continuada, intercalando-se com a ocorrência de epidemias, geralmente associadas com a introdução de novos sorotipos. Em Macaé, RJ, ocorreram epidemias em 2002, 2007 e 2010. A Secretaria Municipal de Saúde de Macaé vem implementando mecanismos para o efetivo enfrentamento da dengue através de uma política de saúde baseada na intersetorialidade e a partir de 2007 se agregou ao plano de contingência a utilização de medicamento homeopático. No presente artigo são apresentados os resultados da aplicação profilática de medicamentos homeopáticos, assim como os critérios de escolha dos mesmos entre os anos 2007 e 2012. A utilização da homeopatia foi implantada facilmente, com um custo de financiamento condizente às condições socioeconômicas e culturais do país e contou com grande adesão da população...


The first documented dengue epidemic took place in Brazil in 1981-1982; from that time onwards dengue became endemic, with periodic epidemic outbreaks associated with the introduction of new serotypes. In Macaé, Rio de Janeiro, epidemic outbreaks occurred in 2002, 2007 and 2010. The Municipal Health Secretary consequently established an ongoing multi-sector policy for control of dengue, which began to include homeopathy starting 2007.

ABSTRACT

Existen opiniones controversiales dentro de la Homeopatía en relación con la inmunizacióntradicional, las cuales señalan que ésta puede producir efectos adversos en algún porcentaje de la población que la recibe, e incluso agravar enfermedades crónicas, por lo que se ha propuesto una vacunación con preparados de elementos bacterianos llevados a dinamizaciones homeopáticas en un esquema de vacunación isoprofiláctica que podría sustituir a la vacunación tradicional. En esta publicación, el doctor Teixeira realiza un análisis de este tipo de propuestas, señalando las ventajas y desventajas de las mismas. Desde su propio enfoque analiza también las opiniones que tienen varios organismos internacionales al respecto, y afirma que nada se compara en protección y seguridad a una prescripción homeopática individualizada que siga las premisas epistemológicas de este método.Del mismo modo, el autor establece que, mientras no se tengan estudios clínicos de alta calidad metodológica que demuestren la seguridad y eficacia de una isoprofilaxis, ésta no podrá sustituir a los esquemas de vacunación tradicional...

ABSTRACT

La Homeopatía puede utilizarse para la prevención de enfermedades epidémicas (homeoprofilaxis) siempre que los medicamentos sean escogidos individualmente, de acuerdo al ‘principio de semejanza sintomática’ y a la totalidad de los síntomas característicos de una epidemia dada (remedio del ‘genio epidémico’), como demuestran un gran número de ejemplos en la literatura. El uso de nosodes para prevención de epidemias (isoprofilaxis), es decir, escogidos en función del ‘principio de identidad etiológica’, con total omisión de la individualización sintomática y los estudios patogenésicos, no tiene fundamento en el modelo epistemológico homeopático. Hasta que no se disponga de evidencias científicas confiables que atestigüen su eficacia y seguridad, no es posible indicar el remplazo de las vacunas tradicionales por una ‘inmunización isopática’, pues representaría una contravención de los principios bioéticos de ‘beneficencia’ y ‘no-maleficencia’. Aunque es cierto que muchos homeópatas indican sistemáticamente tal remplazo, éste es criticado por instituciones homeopáticas de todo el mundo. En este artículo, discuto más extensamente aspectos epistemológicos, éticos y científicos de estas modalidades de profilaxis que abordé someramente en una revisión anterior...


Homeopathy might be employed for the prevention of epidemic diseases (homeoprophylaxis) provided remedies are selected on an individual basis in compliance with the ‘principle of symptom-based ilitude’ and according to the totality of symptoms peculiar to a given epidemic (remedy of the ‘epidemic genius’ or ‘genus epidemicus’), as countless examples in literature. The use of nosodes for the revention of epidemic diseases (isoprophylaxis), i.e., selected based on the ‘principle of etiological identity’ with full neglect of symptom-based individualization and pathogenetic trials, is not supported by the homeopathic epistemological model. As long as there are no reliable scientific evidences attesting to its efficacy and safety, ‘isopathic immunization’ might not be indicated as a regular placement of classical immunization, as it would mean a transgression of the bioethical principles of ‘beneficence’ and ‘non-maleficence’. Although many homeopathic practitioners systematically indicate that practice, it is condemned by homeopathic institutions worldwide.

ABSTRACT

Homeopathic immunisation was first used in 1798, but remains controversial with some homeopathic practitioners. Teixeira supported the use of genus epidemicus (GE) remedies, but strongly condemned the use of nosodes for disease prevention. However Teixeira failed to fully understand the Principal of Similars, he used a double standard when comparing evidence using GE remedies and nosodes, he misread information demonstrating the safety of long-term HP, and he appeared to be unaware of scientific evidence which is available supporting the prophylactic use of nosodes. These four areas are addressed in turn, and evidence from 1798 to 2012 is presented showing that appropriate homoeopathic immunisation using GE remedies and/or nosodes has the potential to prevent much suffering without any risk of possible short-term toxic damage or long-term energetic adverse effects.


A imunização homeopática foi utilizada pela primeira vez em 1798, no entanto, continua sendo uma prática controvertida entre os homeopatas. Teixeira defende o uso de medicamentos do gênio epidémico (GE), mas condena veementemente o uso de nosódios na prevenção de doenças. Contudo, Teixeira não tem compreendido completamente o princípio de similitude, utilizou um padrão duplo na sua comparação das evidências resultantes do uso de medicamentos GE e nosódios, fez uma leitura equívoca das informações que demonstram a segurança da homeoprofilaxia no longo prazo e parece não ter ciência de evidências científicas disponíveis embasando o uso de nosódios. Esses quatro tópicos são abordados aqui, além da apresentação de evidências coletadas de 1798 a 2012 que demonstram que una imunização homeopática adequada baseada no uso de medicamentos do GE e/ou nosódios tem potencial para prevenir muito sofrimento sem risco de lesões tóxicas no curto prazo nem de efeitos adversos energéticos no longo prazo.

ABSTRACT

A major catastrophe hit Western Africa and we would like to put a definite end to that nightmare. Ever since in its initial identification in 1976, the Ebola virus is endemic in Zaire (currently, Democratic Republic of the Congo – DRC), where it has exerted devastating effects. For many years now, the virus has mercilessly attacked our fellow men, killing entire families overnight and leaving thousands of children orphan.The current, being the seventh epidemic of Ebola hemorrhagic fever (EHF) in the RDC, also broke out in West Africa - Guinea, Liberia, Sierra Leone Nigeria and Senegal.The World Health Organization (WHO) called specialists from several countries and concentrated efforts that might result in a practical contribution to the control of cases. It is worth to observe that the epidemic has caused more than 1,400 deaths in 2014, being the fatality rate 60 to 90%.

ABSTRACT

Aplicando el principio de similitud terapéutica, la Homeopatía busca estimular alorganismo para que reaccione en contra de su propia perturbación. Para que losmedicamentos homeopáticos puedan despertar respuestas homeostáticas eficacesdeben ser individualizados, esto significa que deben ser elegidos en función desu similitud con el conjunto de síntomas característicos de los pacientes. De estamanera, teniendo el propósito de disminuir la susceptibilidad individual que predispone a la enfermedad, los medicamentos homeopáticos curan y generan efectospreventivos en muchas enfermedades humanas. Por otra parte, los medicamentos homeopáticos pueden tener indicaciones específicas en el tratamiento y prevención de enfermedades epidémicas, con la condición de que también se elijan de acuerdo con el conjunto particular de síntomas peculiares de una epidemia determinada, a saber, el llamado “genio epidémico”, como lo muestran varios ejemplos históricos. En este trabajo se analiza la actualización de las bases epistemológicas de la Homeopatía de Hahnemann desde el enfoque médico preventivo, las evidencias científicas que apoyan su aplicación clínica y los requisitos mínimos para emplearla tanto terapéutica como preventivamente en las epidemias.

ABSTRACT

Esta revisão bibliográfica cujo objetivo foi descrever brevemente o tema homeopatia, enfocando o gênio epidêmico como forma de enfoque terapêutico. Além de exemplifica o funcionamento positivo dessa medicina (homeopatia) em algumas patologias dos animais. Quando tratamos uma população animal, reunimos todos os sintomas de todos os animais, e realizamos um estudo chamado de Gênio Epidêmico, a partir do qual, chegaremos ao medicamento homeopático comum a todos os animais do plantel, denominado Gênio Medicamentoso. Este tipo de tratamento é aplicado particularmente em moléstias de origem infecciosa, epidemias e surtos.(AU)

ABSTRACT

Empregando o princípio da similitude curativa, a homeopatia visa estimular o organismo a reagir contra os seus próprios distúrbios. No entanto, para que o medicamento homeopático desperte uma reação homeostática efetiva, ele precisa ser individualizado, ou seja, ser escolhido pela semelhança com o conjunto de sintomas característicos do binômio doente-doença. Dessa forma, buscando diminuir as suscetibilidades individuais que predispõe ao adoecer, o medicamento homeopático atua curativa e preventivamente em muitas doenças humanas. Por outro lado, possui indicação específica no tratamento e na prevenção das doenças epidêmicas, desde que escolhido individualmente segundo o conjunto de sintomas peculiares à epidemia (denominado “gênio epidêmico”), com exemplos históricos descritos na literatura. Nessa atualização, iremos discorrer sobre as premissas epistemológicas que fazem da homeopatia hahnemanniana uma prática médica preventiva, as evidências científicas que endossam sua aplicação clínica e os requisitos mínimos para utilizá-la terapêutica e preventivamente nas doenças epidêmicas.

For homeopathic medicines to awaken effective homeostasis responses they must be individualized, this means that they must be chosen according to their similarity to the set of characteristic symptoms of the patients. In this way, by aiming at decreasing the individual susceptibility predisposing to disease, homeopathic medicines have healing and preventive effects in many human illnesses. On the other hand, homeopathic medicines may have specific indications in the treatment and prevention of epidemic diseases provided they are also chosen according to the particular set of peculiar symptoms to a given epidemic, viz the so-called “epidemic genius”, as historical examples show. This update paper discusses the epistemological foundations of Hahnemann‟s homeopathy as a preventive medical approach, the scientific evidences supporting its clinical application and the minimum requirements to employ it both therapeutically and preventively in epidemics.

ABSTRACT

Empregando o princípio da similitude curativa, a homeopatia visa estimular o organismo a reagir contra os seus próprios distúrbios. No entanto, para que o medicamento homeopático desperte uma reação homeostática efetiva, ele precisa ser individualizado, ou seja, ser escolhido pela semelhança com o conjunto de sintomas característicos do binômio doente-doença. Dessa forma, buscando diminuir as suscetibilidades individuais que predispõe ao adoecer, o medicamento homeopático atua curativa e preventivamente em muitas doenças humanas. Por outro lado, possui indicação específica no tratamento e na prevenção das doenças epidêmicas, desde que escolhido individualmente segundo o conjunto de sintomas peculiares à epidemia (denominado “gênio epidêmico”), com exemplos históricos descritos na literatura. Nessa atualização, iremos discorrer sobre as premissas epistemológicas que fazem da homeopatia hahnemanniana uma prática médica preventiva, as evidências científicas que endossam sua aplicação clínica e os requisitos mínimos para utilizá-la terapêutica e preventivamente nas doenças epidêmicas.(AU)

On the other hand, homeopathic medicines may have specific indications in the treatment and prevention of epidemic diseases provided they are also chosen according to the particular set of symptoms peculiar to a given epidemic, viz. the so-called ?epidemic genius?, as historical examples show. This update paper discusses the epistemological foundations of Hahnemann?s homeopathy as a preventive medical approach, the scientific evidences supporting its clinical application and the minimum requirements to employ it both therapeutically and preventively in epidemics.
