Homeoprophylaxis

Homeoprophylaxis is a method used to protect individuals – from infants to adults – from contracting infections. In contrast to vaccinations, homeoprophylaxis does not rely on antibody formation to prevent an illness. Instead, the homeopathic remedies boost the innate immune system to lower a person’s susceptibility to diseases.

Homeoprophylaxis is based on the philosophy that micro-organisms are not the sole cause of illness, but rather the symptoms of the illness are the interplay between a micro-organism and the individual’s susceptibility to it. The healthier the patient, the less susceptible to contracting an infection.

Homeopaths who have practiced according to this principle during the centuries include Boenninghausen, Kent, Burnett, Tyler, Blackie, Boger and others. In modern times Dr. Isaac Golden from Australia, has addressed this issue in a systematic manner.

There are many studies on the effectiveness of homeoprophylaxis (HP). Here’s one example:

In 1974, during a meningococcal epidemic in Brazil, 18,640 children were given HP for protection against Meningococcal, and 6,340 were not. The following results were obtained:

• 18,640 protected homeopathically – 4 cases of Meningococcal infection.

• 6,340 not protected – 32 cases of Meningococcal infection.

Based on the infection (attack) rate in the unprotected group, 94 cases of infection would have been expected in the homeo-pathically protected group. Instead, there were only four cases of meningococcal infection, showing that the homeopathic option was 95% effective against the meningococcal disease. HP was also used very successfully in Cuba in 2008 to decrease leptospirosis, a disease contracted from infected water, by 84%.

The infant/toddler program is designed to take approximately 3.5 years.  Children are given nosodes monthly for a little over 2 years, then bi-monthly for approximately 1.5 years.  Children can start the program between 2 months and 5 years of age.

There are several benefits of our HP program which include:

  • NO toxic ingredients

  • NO injections

  • NO tears

  • NO fear of doctors developed

  • Program is administered orally, at home

  • Gently and naturally trains the immune system to recognize and respond to pathogens

  • Demonstrated to be effective at building resistance to infections

  • Studies suggest that children undergoing HP are generally healthier overall (less evidence of eczema, asthma and behavior disturbances).

Our Homeoprophylaxis program offers nosodes against the following pathogens:

  • Pertussis (whooping cough)

  • Pneumococcal disease

  • Polio

  • Haemophilus disease

  • Meningococcal disease

  • Tetanus

  • Parotitis (mumps)

  • Morbillinum (measels)
