Alternatives to standard vaccinations with homeopathy
Posted Dec 06 2009 12:00am
When I was first introduced to the concept of homeopathic vaccinations / prophylaxis, I found it very promising. After researching the standard child immunizations I became very concerned that the vaccines may actually do more harm than good.
Here is one of the keys to health via Wikipedia
Prophylaxis(Greek "προφυλάσσω" to guard or prevent beforehand) is any medical or public health procedure whose purpose is to prevent, rather than treat or cure a disease. In general terms, prophylactic measures are divided between primary prophylaxis (to prevent the development of a disease) and secondary prophylaxis (whereby the disease has already developed and the patient is protected against worsening of this process).
At present moment I practice prophylaxis via regular exercise, dental cleanings, health promoting diet, regular chiropractic care, proper rest, etc... Doctors also prescribe antibiotics post surgery as a prophylactic in case there was any infection entering the body.
There are many individuals and groups who have done much to bring awareness to dangers of regular vaccinations that society in general thinks are safe and effective. I will do a separate post about this, but here is one example of the apparent risks in the Polio Vaccine. (Polio, AIDS, weakened immune system)
I think, as time goes on, we will see more and more evidence of the problems associated with vaccination. If I may venture to make a prediction, it is that 50 or 100 years from now people will look back at the practice of introducing disease into people and animals for the purpose of preventing these same diseases as a foolishness — a foolishness similar to that of the practice of blood-letting or the use of toxic doses of mercury in the treatment of disease.
In his article he discusses Whooping Cough, Diphtheria (DTaP), and Poliomyelitis (Polio) along with animal diseases which also responded well to homeopathic vaccinations / prophylaxis.
So if you are looking at an alternative, this may very well be a promising one given that in general homeopathic medicine is considered safe without any known side effects. I know I will be looking more into it.
