Long-term homeoprophylaxis for children
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 60 months. During the first 32 months the child takes a remedy at monthly or bimonthly intervals. In the remaining months, the intervals are larger.
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 included in the homeoprophylaxis program are: whooping-cough, pneumococcal disease, meningococcal disease, tetanus, hib influenza, polio, diphtheria, measles and mumps. The remedy potencies used are mostly 200C, 1M and 10M.
For further details about the homeoprophylaxis program see Dr. Isaac Golden‘s book Vaccination & Homoeoprophylaxis? A Review of Risks and Alternatives. 6th ed., 2005.
About traditional vaccination
When exposed to an infectious disease, the body produces antibodies and other activated white blood cells to fight the infection. After recovery, an immunological memory has been developed that will provide resistance to this disease in the future.
In essence, this is the process vaccination imitates. People are exposed to small doses of infectious agents (attenuated or dead infectious organisms, microorganism toxins or components).
According to current medical thinking, vaccination is mostly harmless, the few who become living vegetables as a result being considered an acceptable low-percentage risk—collateral damage, as it were. It is believed that vaccination eliminates illness, and will stave off future deadly epidemics. The search for a vaccine that will eradicate all human disease has become a highly funded holy grail. Vaccination has become an indisputable sacred cow, more and ever larger vaccine cocktails compulsorily being injected into ever younger infants. Of course, the profits to pharmaceutical organizations are immense, not to mention those from treating future illness caused by vaccination.
On examining the historical statistical basis for vaccination, one quickly sees many discrepancies. Curiously enough, when vaccines were introduced most of the dreaded diseases (whooping-cough, measles, polio, tetanus, and diphtheria), were already well on their way out of existence owing to generally improved conditions of hygiene and nutrition. Vaccination was subsequently given the credit for this statistical decline.
It should be noted that the medical double-blind testing stamp of approval for drugs is conspicuously absent when it comes to vaccines. It should also be noted that the French who fought side by side with their allies in the Gulf War were not afflicted with the dreaded Gulf War Syndrome. They were not given the vaccine cocktail containing all of Iraq’s presumed chemical and biological arsenal that the British and American soldiers received prior to being sent to Kuwait.
Many people are becoming concerned about the possible long-term effects of vaccination, especially as regards their children. Do they really need vaccination for childhood illnesses such as measles, mumps and rubella? Will this open the door to even more ominous afflictions? Perhaps these childhood diseases are a natural step in the development of their immune system.
In the past, we saw acute illnesses from which children recovered fairly rapidly, seldom leaving any lasting damage. Today we see few childhood illnesses, but an alarming increase of children with middle ear infection, with the risk of reduced hearing and impeded language skill development. We see peevish, restless sleepers with chronic runny noses. We see many allergies: eczema, hay fever, asthma, chronic bronchitis and pneumonia. And, worse, we see a great increase in the number of children who are hyperactive, have behavioral disorders and mental disturbances, are autistic. Causes may vary, but many believe there is a direct connection.
Is it possible that we are eliminating acute illnesses, but paying the price of an increased incidence of chronic illness, together with a lowered level of general health being passed on to succeeding generations ?
Some facts about the contents of vaccines might be in order. They are grown on substrates, most of which derive from animal tissue such as rabbit brain, dog or monkey kidney, chicken or duck egg, cells from aborted fetuses, calf serum, and pig or horse blood. Such tissues contain proteins that may cause allergic reactions when injected directly into the blood. Animal genetic material may thus be introduced via living vaccine viruses and implanted into the human genetic system.
Vaccine viruses and bacteria also contain genetic information (RNA, DNA) that may be spread and taken in by the cells of an organism. Such viruses may remain dormant in cells for many years before becoming activated, then causing autoimmune illnesses such as allergies, arthritis, rheumatism and sclerosis.
Among other things, vaccines contain additives including formaldehyde (a known allergen and carcinogen), mercury, aluminum phosphate, acetone and glycerin. These are present in minute quantities, of course, but are quite poisonous and, after all, directly introduced into tissue.
During its more than 200 year history, homeopathy has proven highly effective in epidemics, both as regards cure and prevention, with well-documented success rates in, among others, scarlet fever, polio, cholera and influenza epidemics (including the Spanish flu one), and offers a viable alternative to vaccination.
Short-term homeoprophylaxis for children
This homeoprophylaxis program is to be used if your child is likely to be exposed to infection, e.g., visiting relatives with whooping-cough, measles, etc., or there is a meningococcal outbreak in town. As no method of prophylaxis is perfect, this will give added protection.
Take Cuprum Metallicum 200C twice each week for two weeks during an outbreak of whooping-cough.
Take Hypericum 30C three times daily for three days after breakage of the skin where the danger of contracting tetanus is present.
Take Lathyrus Sativus in a potency of 200C once a week during an outbreak of polio.
Take Belladonna 200C every two weeks for six weeks during an outbreak.
Take Pulsatilla 200C weekly for four weeks during an outbreak
Take Belladonna 200C weekly for four weeks during an outbreak.
Take Arsenicum Album 200C weekly for four weeks during an outbreak of haemophilis influenzae (HIB Meningitis).
Take Influenzinum or Oscillococcinum (also called Anas Barb) 200C weekly for four weeks during an outbreak of influenza
INSTRUCTIONS FOR TAKING HOMEOPATHIC PILLS
There should be no aftertaste in your mouth on taking a homeopathic remedy. Thus, you should not eat or drink anything (besides water) at least fifteen minutes before and after taking the remedy. This also applies to smoking. Nor should there be any strong odor, e.g., perfume, incense, etc. present in the room you are in.
It may be easiest to take the remedy in the morning before tooth brushing and breakfast. Avoid touching the remedy with your fingers. Use the remedy container cap instead, or some other means, to throw the pill onto the tongue. Allow the remedy to dissolve on your tongue. Wait at least fifteen minutes before ingesting anything.
Afterwards you may eat and drink as you normally do.
