Abstract

This article intends to contribute to a greater convergence between the scientific and homeopathic milieus. Therefore, it uses a model consistent with regular medicine's in order to establish the action of remedies prepared according to homeopathic procedures and to compare their therapeutic effects with those of regular medicine in urinary infections by Escherichia coli (E.coXi).Remedies were homeopathic Cantharis vesicatoria, 6CH and 30CH; biotherapic Urina 30CH, Escherichia coli 30CH, and Colibacillinum 30CH; and allopathic nalidixic acid, p.o.. Female Wistar rats were contaminated by urethral probe with a suspension o/E. coli. Urine was aseptically collected and subjected to microbiological tests to verify actual infection. Animals infected were divided into seven groups, including one control. Each group received a different remedy. After treatment, urine was aseptically collected and subjected to microbiological tests to verify infection. In order to establish a potential preventive action of remedies, rats received a 5-day course of treatment before contamination. In the first setting, Cantharis vesicatoria 6CH and 30CH nalidixic acid were effective in the treatment of urinary infection; in the second,Urina 30CH achieved the best results.
