Children’s Immunisations


Homeoprophylaxis (the use of homeopathic remedies for the prevention of infectious diseases)

In this section you find texts which discuss whether alternatives to conventional vaccinations are an option for parents. The information provided is based on the best available evidence.

When it comes to the protection of their children, parents have basically four options:

To raise immunity naturally by providing a safe environment, good food and loving care.

To vaccinate.

To use homeopathic remedies instead of vaccination.

A combination of the above three.

Disclaimer: Any information obtained here is not to be construed as medical OR legal advice. The decision to vaccinate and how you implement that decision is yours and yours alone. The evidence for the efficacy of homeopathic immunisation is ‘anecdotal’. That means it is based on individuals’ reports past and present. For more on evidence, please go to the What is Homeoprophylaxis section. The evidence for the efficacy of homeoprophylaxis is based on a substantial university study, cohort and case studies and individuals’ reports past and present.
A note of caution to those who believe that unjustified therapeutic claims are being made on this website. Please, read the following carefully:
Since homeopathy is used to address the individual’s experience of diseased states, disease names mentioned here are purely used for shorthand purposes. Homeopathy recognises that diseases differ from individual to individual even if they have been given the same label such as ‘rheumatoid arthritis’, for example. Hahnemann himself suggested not to speak of  ‘ague’, ‘nerve fever’ or ‘dropsy’, but as a kind of ague, a kind of nerve fever, a kind of dropsy. Homeopathy does not treat disease names, it addresses the experience of an individual suffering from kinds of diseases.
