RESUMO

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)

RESUMO

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)

RESUMO

BACKGROUND: In homeopathic philosophy, vital force is a non-material substrate that is responsible for maintaining the body's sensations and functions and where homeopathic medicines act. In genetics, the body's vital functions are controlled by biochemical information, which is contained in the cell genome and consists of a protein encoding portion (exome) and another that regulates this encoding scheme (epigenome). Both the philosophical vital force and the genome present properties of complex and dynamic self-organisation systems. AIMS: This study aimed to explore and develop a philosophical-scientific correlation between vitalism and genetics according to the complexity paradigm. RESULTS: Vital principle and genome present inseparable composition among distinct existing components that influence one another and form a network of connections that create complex and dynamic self-organisation behaviour. Described in both models, 'vortex' indicates the existence of a force coming from within the system that is externalised as an emergent, information-transmitting phenomenon. Supporting this correlation, some experimental studies show that homeopathic medicines act on the genome by modulating gene expression. CONCLUSIONS: In line with the similarity of existing characteristics and properties, the genome may be considered as hypothetical biological substrate of organic vital force.

RESUMO

O texto busca esclarecer à classe médica as peculiaridades da homeopatia que, apesar de fazer parte do rol das especialidades médicas brasileiras desde 1980, não é ensinada na maioria das faculdades de medicina. Associada a essa lacuna na educação dos estudantes de medicina, que se reflete na desinformação e desconhecimento dos futuros médicos, a aplicação de pressupostos distintos dos propagados pela ciência hegemônica contribui para a disseminação de preconceitos arraigados na cultura médica, afastando graduandos e graduados do aprendizado de uma terapia bissecular que deveria fazer parte do arsenal terapêutico vigente. Empregando um princípio de cura que estimula o organismo a reagir contra seus próprios distúrbios e valorizando a individualidade enferma em seus múltiplos aspectos, o método homeopático de tratamento favorece a relação médico-paciente e estimula o raciocínio holístico na compreensão do complexo fenômeno do adoecimento humano, propiciando uma terapêutica de baixo custo, isenta de eventos adversos e que incrementa a resolutividade clínica das doenças crônicas em geral. Esta revisão narrativa da literatura foi desenvolvida com o intuito de correlacionar os pressupostos homeopáticos às evidências científicas que os fundamentam, realizando buscas eletrônicas nas bases de dados MEDLINE e LILACS por meio de termos que descrevem suas linhas de pesquisa.

RESUMO

INTRODUCTION: In addition to the four pillars of homeopathy, vitalism and the miasmatic theory are often used to explain the health-disease process. According to Hahnemann's concepts, homeopathic miasms are the main obstacle to the cure of chronic diseases, with psora being the fundamental cause of all forms of diseases. According to modern genetics, the disease-promoting epigenetic alterations are the fundamental cause of the manifestation of chronic diseases. OBJECTIVE: This article develops a philosophical-scientific correlation between chronic miasms and disease-promoting epigenetic modifications, aiming to justify the isopathic use of auto-sarcode of an individual's DNA as homeopathic medicine. RESULTS: Based on the study of homeopathic doctrine and epigenetics, a conceptual and functional correlation is observed between homeopathic chronic miasms and disease-promoting epigenetic modifications. Additionally, several experimental studies suggest that homeopathy's mechanism of action may be by modulating gene expression. CONCLUSIONS: By the philosophical-scientific correlations described, it is inferred that disease-promoting epigenetic alterations are the biological representation of the chronic miasms, suggesting the isopathic use of auto-sarcode of DNA as homeopathic therapeutic modulator of gene expression for the management of chronic diseases.

RESUMO

La Homeopatía se fundamenta en la ley de semejanza, la cual nos dice que el empleo de medicamentos que producen síntomas similares a los de las enfermedades estimula la reacción del organismo para aliviar sus propias dolencias. El tratamiento homeopático puede emplear toda clase de sustancias (naturales o sintéticas, en dosis ponderales o infinitesimales) siempre que se respete dicho principio. Con base en lo anterior, desde 2003 hemos propuesto el uso de fármacos modernos según el principio homeopático de curación tanto a través de investigaciones y publicaciones en revistas científicas, como de la elaboración de una Materia Médica Homeopática de Fármacos Modernos, que incluye los efectos primarios de 1,250 fármacos alopáticos, y un Repertorio Homeopático de Fármacos Modernos. Estos esfuerzos forman parte del proyecto Nuevos Medicamentos Homeopáticos: Uso de Fármacos Modernos según el Principio de Semejanza, que puede consultarse de manera gratuita, en portugués e inglés, en el sitio web www.nuevosmedicamentoshomeopaticos.com. Ahora, la validez clínica y científica de esta propuesta ha comenzado con la realización de un ensayo clínico para evaluar la eficacia y la seguridad del estrógeno dinamizado en el tratamiento homeopático del dolor pélvico asociado a la endometriosis. El resultado ha sido positivo, pero se requiere que médicos, farmacéuticos e investigadores se sumen a esta iniciativa para robustecerla e impulsar su crecimiento.(AU)


Homeopathy is based on the law of similarity, which tells us that the use of drugs that produce symptoms similar to those of diseases stimulates the body's reaction to relieve their own ailments. Homeopathic treatment can use all kinds of substances (natural or synthetic, in weight or infinitesimal doses) provided that this principle is respected. Based on the above, since 2003 we have proposed the use of modern drugs according to the homeopathic healing principle both through research and publications in scientific journals, and the development of a Homeopathic Materia Medica Modern Drugs, which includes the primary effects of 1,250 allopathic drugs, and a Homeopathic Repertory of Modern Drugs. These efforts are part of the New Homeopathic Medicine project: Use of Modern Drugs according to the Principle of Similarity, which can be consulted free of charge, in Portuguese and English, on the website www.newhomeopathicmedicines.com. Now, the clinical and scientific validity of this proposal has begun with the performance of a clinical trial to evaluate the efficacy and safety of energized estrogen in the homeopathic treatment of pelvic pain associated with endometriosis. The result has been positive, but it requires doctors, pharmacists and researchers to join this initiative to strengthen it and boost its growth. (AU)

RESUMO

Mucha gente tiene un concepto equivocado de la Homeopatía, debido a que no profundiza en algunos de sus elementos básicos. Hay que empezar por entender el principio de los semejantes: "toda sustancia capaz de provocar determinados síntomas en una persona sana puede curar estos mismos síntomas en una persona enferma", para luego analizar un poco más en los síntomas físicos, mentales y generales del paciente. La Homeopatía apuesta por la individualización y por una verdadera cura, que significa alcanzar un óptimo estado de equilibrio general del paciente y no solamente la desaparición de los síntomas. (AU)


Many people have a wrong concept of homeopathy, because it does not delve into some of its basic elements. We must begin by understanding the principle of similar: "any substance capable of causing certain symptoms in a healthy person can cure these same symptoms in a sick person," and then analyze a little more in the physical, mental and general symptoms of the patient . Homeopathy is committed to individualization and a true cure, which means achieving an optimal state of general balance of the patient and not just the disappearance of symptoms. (AU)

RESUMO

The homeopathic treatment is based on the principle of therapeutic similitude, employing medicines that cause certain disorders to treat similar manifestations, stimulating a reaction of the organism against its own ailments. The occurrence of this secondary reaction of the organism, opposite in nature to the primary action of the medicines, is evidenced in the study of the rebound (paradoxical) effect of several classes of modern drugs. In this work, in addition to substantiate the principle of similitude before the experimental and clinical pharmacology, we suggest a proposal to employ hundreds of conventional drugs according to homeopathic method, applying the therapeutic similitude between the adverse events of medicines and the clinical manifestations of patients. Describing existing lines of research and a specific method for the therapeutic use of the rebound effect of modern drugs (http://www.newhomeopathicmedicines.com), we hope to minimize prejudices related to the homeopathy and contribute to a broadening of the healing art.

RESUMO

OBJECTIVE: To evaluate the efficacy and safety of potentized estrogen compared to placebo in homeopathic treatment of endometriosis-associated pelvic pain (EAPP). STUDY DESIGN: The present was a 24-week, randomized, double-blind, placebo-controlled trial that included 50 women aged 18-45 years old with diagnosis of deeply infiltrating endometriosis based on magnetic resonance imaging or transvaginal ultrasound after bowel preparation, and score≥5 on a visual analogue scale (VAS: range 0 to 10) for endometriosis-associated pelvic pain. Potentized estrogen (12cH, 18cH and 24cH) or placebo was administered twice daily per oral route. The primary outcome measure was change in the severity of EAPP global and partial scores (VAS) from baseline to week 24, determined as the difference in the mean score of five modalities of chronic pelvic pain (dysmenorrhea, deep dyspareunia, non-cyclic pelvic pain, cyclic bowel pain and/or cyclic urinary pain). The secondary outcome measures were mean score difference for quality of life assessed with SF-36 Health Survey Questionnaire, depression symptoms on Beck Depression Inventory (BDI), and anxiety symptoms on Beck Anxiety Inventory (BAI). RESULTS: The EAPP global score (VAS: range 0 to 50) decreased by 12.82 (P<0.001) in the group treated with potentized estrogen from baseline to week 24. Group that used potentized estrogen also exhibited partial score (VAS: range 0 to 10) reduction in three EAPP modalities: dysmenorrhea (3.28; P<0.001), non-cyclic pelvic pain (2.71; P=0.009), and cyclic bowel pain (3.40; P<0.001). Placebo group did not show any significant changes in EAPP global or partial scores. In addition, the potentized estrogen group showed significant improvement in three of eight SF-36 domains (bodily pain, vitality and mental health) and depression symptoms (BDI). Placebo group showed no significant improvement in this regard. These results demonstrate superiority of potentized estrogen over placebo. Few adverse events were associated with potentized estrogen. CONCLUSIONS: Potentized estrogen (12cH, 18cH and 24cH) at a dose of 3 drops twice daily for 24 weeks was significantly more effective than placebo for reducing endometriosis-associated pelvic pain. TRIAL REGISTRATION: ClinicalTrials.gov Identifier: NCT02427386.

RESUMO

INTRODUÇÃO: O modelo homeopático de tratamento utiliza o ‘princípio dos semelhantes’ como método terapêutico, administrando medicamentos que causam determinados sintomas em indivíduos sadios para tratar sintomas semelhantes em indivíduos doentes (similia similibus curantur), com o intuito de despertar uma reação secundária e curativa do organismo contra os seus próprios distúrbios. Essa reação secundária (vital, homeostática ou paradoxal) do organismo está embasada no ‘efeito rebote’ dos fármacos modernos, evento adverso observado após a descontinuação de diversas classes de drogas que utilizam o ‘princípio dos contrários’ (contraria contrariis curantur) como método terapêutico...

RESUMO

Background: Used as complementary to, alternating or integrated with mainstream medicine, the population’s demand for non-conventional therapies has substantially increased in the past decades, requiring from doctors knowledge on the basic notions of such therapeutics to orient their patients regarding treatments different to the ones they usually prescribe. Among them, homeopathy and acupuncture are considered medical specialties in Brazil for various decades. Aim: To describe the current state of medical education in non-conventional therapies (homeopathy and acupuncture) around the world. Methods: We updated data resulting from studies and reviews published until 2013 through a review of more recent studies included in database PubMed. Results: In all countries the teaching of non-conventional therapies is considered a relevant topic for the training of doctors as a function of the increasing interest of the population in their use, with a broad range of approaches targeting undergraduate and graduate students, medical residents and doctors from other medical specialties. Conclusions: The Brazilian medical schools must provide undergraduate and graduate students and medical residents accurate knowledge on the theoretical assumptions and clinical-therapeutic approaches proper to homeopathy and acupuncture, among other non-conventional therapies.

RESUMO

BACKGROUND: Homeopathy employs the so-called ‘principle of similars’ as therapeutic method - which consists in administering medicines that cause certain symptoms in healthy individuals to treat similar symptoms in sick individuals (similia similibus curantur) - to induce a secondary and healing reaction by the body against its own disorders. This secondary (vital, homeostatic or paradoxical) reaction of the body is based on the ‘rebound effect’ of modern drugs, a type of adverse event that occurs following discontinuation of several classes of drugs prescribed according to the ‘principle of contraries’ (contraria contrariis curantur). AIM: The present review sought to scientifically substantiate the homeopathic healing principle vis-à-vis experimental and clinical pharmacology through a systematic study of the rebound effect of modern drugs or paradoxical reaction of the body. METHODS: Employing as reference studies and revisions on the subject published since 1998, we updated the data adding recent studies included in database PubMed. RESULTS: The rebound effect occurs after discontinuation of several classes of drugs with action contrary to the symptoms of diseases, exacerbating them to levels above the ones before treatment. [...]. Following the homeopathic premises, modern drugs might also be used according to the principle oftherapeutic similitude, thus employing the rebound effect (paradoxical reaction) with curative intent. CONCLUSIONS: Evidenced by hundreds of studies that attest to the similarityof concepts and manifestations, the rebound effect of modern drugs scientifically substantiates the principle of homeopathic cure. Although the rebound phenomenon is anadverse event studied by modern pharmacology, it is not known by health care professionals, thus depriving doctors of knowledge indispensable for safe management of drugs.
