HOMEOPATHY ON INDUCED DISEASE RESISTANCE IN PLANTS
José Renato Stangarlin
The induction of resistance in plants involves the activation of defence latent
mechanisms in response to the treatment with elicitor agents, protecting against subsequent
infection by pathogens.By the homeopathic science, any disturbance caused to the plant, both by biotic
and/or abiotic agents, affects their regulatory systems, so, the plant is submitted to a certain
stress (biotic or abiotic), which promotes an unbalanced auto-regulation, and consequently,
their natural homeostasis is lost (BONATO, 2007). Therefore, the principle of similar,
basis of homeopathy seems to apply to plants, once the fundamental principles in which
Hahnemann was guided to establish the basis of homeopathy seem to hold for all living
beings. In this way, the homeopathic drugs can act as abiotic inducers of resistance in
plants against pathogens.
