Dr. Isaac Golden, an Australian homeopath, has developed a homeopathic immunization program he calls homeoprophylaxis.
He has run the program for over 15 years and included over 500 Australian families in the project. The results have been excellent, with about 90% efficacy.
The homeoprophylaxis program runs for about five years. Of course, parents can decide which diseases they wish their children to be immunized against, depending on local conditions and their particular fears.
The diseases that can be included in the program are: whooping cough, pneumococcal disease, meningococcal disease, tetanus, hib influenza, polio, diphtheria, measles and mumps. The remedy potencies used are 200C, 1M and 10M.
The table below contains Dr. Isaac Golden’s immunization schedule as per 2012. As an example, let’s take immunization against whooping cough. The table indicates that the remedy name is Pertussin and lists “1, 2t, 12t, 26t, (52t)” as the ages to give the remedy to your child.
Here “1” means that at the age of one month you give a single dose of Pertussin 200C (if this remedy is unavailable you can use the substitute remedy Cuprum Metallicum 200C as shown in the table under substitute remedies).
The “2t” means that at the age of two months you give Persussin 200C, where the “t” means a triple dose, meaning that you give it three times in a single day six hours apart. The “26t” indicates that at the age of 26 months you give a triple dose of Pertussin. The “(52t)” means that at the age of 52 months you can give Pertussin again as an optional booster.
It is advisable to have a homeopathic practitioner supervise administration of these remedies, however, if none is available locally, the International Homeopathic Web Clinic at www.clinic.euni.org will be happy to serve you.

How to Take Homeopathic Remedies
There should be no taste in your mouth when taking a homeopathic remedy. Therefore, you should not eat or drink anything (except water) at least fifteen minutes before and after taking a remedy. This also applies to smoking and tooth brushing.
Nor should there be any strong smell such as from perfume, incense, etc. present in the room, nor perfume or creams on your hands when handling the remedy container.
Avoid touching the remedy with your fingers as this can neutralize it. Use the bottle cap of the remedy, or some other means to launch the tablet onto the tongue.
Allow the remedy to dissolve on your tongue. Wait at least 15 minutes before eating or drinking anything. Then you can eat and drink as normal.
The remedy is normally a small tablet (globule) of lactose, so it will have a slightly sweet taste. There are no chemicals except a tiny trace of alcohol. It contains information that stimulates the body to heal itself.
