On December 15th, the students of the specialization course in Homeopathy of the Postgraduate Program at Escola Bahiana de Medicina e Saúde Pública received homeopathic physician Ruy Madsen at the Brotas Academic Unit. On the occasion, the guest launched his book "Bases da Homeopatia". He came at the invitation of the course coordination to teach the Miasmas discipline, with classes on December 15th and 16th.

"It is a joy to be here in the postgraduate course in Homeopathy at Bahiana, and the idea is to bring the course students views of contemporary authors of homeopathy, showing that it is a science that is alive, that has a lot of evidence of functioning and effectiveness," declared Ruy Madsen, emphasizing that, like all science, homeopathy also needs to be constantly updated. "The idea is to treat the person as a whole. There is no specific remedy in homeopathy for a given disease, the patient is treated in the set of problems – as he balances himself, he gets better from the inside out and his pathologies also get better".

The doctor explains that the book "Basics of Homeopathy" is an introductory publication, aimed at those who want to know more about the principles of this medicine. "The book is called 'Bases of Homeopathy' precisely because we are respecting the bases of homeopathy, which is the treatment of the person as a whole, adding new instruments to practice these bases." He says that many authors, outside of Brazil, are studying new tools to reach an easier and more effective curative medicine for the patient. "It's a very difficult specialty, because it requires a lot of time with the patient and knowing everything about their life, not only knowing about their disease, but about their personality, their ways, their tastes, their characteristics. It's taking time to listen to the patient ."

Jovita Araújo Braghiroli, a pediatrician for nine years, says she sought out the specialization because she was interested in caring for the individual in a unique and more holistic way. "The experience of the course has been positive within the cases we have attended and also within my family, where there are people who have been treated with homeopathy, with very good results, and this encourages me to study and continue to seek and monitor the advances that exist in the world related to homeopathy." Among the news, she points out the discovery of new drugs and therapeutic modalities.
