Plant models offer a method to examine the efficacy of homeopathic solutions. Homeopathic Phosphorus (P) dynamizations were evaluated on the linear growth and dry biomass of Verbena gratissima, a plant native to Brazil. The yields and chemical characterization of the essential oil are also given. Plants exhibited phenotypic plasticity after the homeopathic Phosphorus treatments. The dynamization 9CH, in particular, interfered with plant growth, height, diameter of stems and total dry mass. 9CH… Expand
Chamomile Cultivation Submitted to Ultra-diluted Phosphorus Solutions
TLDR
The application of Phosphorus promotes pathogenesis in the cultivation of chamomile with increases in the characters related to the inflorescence, and the diameter and the height of the flower expressed better results in the 3CH dynamization. Expand
Chemical composition of chamomile essential oil cultivated with homeopathy
TLDR
Phosphorus dynamizations alter the chemical composition and increase the productivity of essential oil in chamomile, demonstrating to be a sustainable practice for increasing the production of essentialOil in medicinal species. Expand
Antiproliferative potential and phenolic compounds of infusions and essential oil of chamomile cultivated with homeopathy.
TLDR
C cultivation with homeopathy does not induce a genotoxic effect in the use of infusions and essential oil of chamomile and it emphasize antiproliferative activity on the cell cycle of Allium cepa, favoring the sustainable cultivation and the safe use of this medicinal species when cultivated withHomeopathy.

TLDR
Despite the substandard methodological quality of most experiments, studies with systematic use of negative controls and reproducibility demonstrated significant indisputable effects of homeopathic HD on plants. Expand
To those who demand scientific evidence for homeopathy
TLDR
It is concluded that homeopathy is an ethical medical system that provides systemic and safe treatment to patients with optimal costbenefit ratio and should be included in universities, schools of medicine and at all levels of the healthcare system, thus ensuring its historical nature as a medical specialty.
