In my previous article, “So you think Vaccines are safe? Think again,” I amassed a lot of information and research that demonstrates how vaccines are unsafe. But what should we do about our unvaccinated selves and children in this world of microbes and pathogens? This article will provide advice, information, and research concerning the best ways to stay protected for you and your loved ones.

Step 1 – Don’t Worry

I am not implying that severe diseases are a mere trifle. I am merely stating that worry does not help anything and may even make matters worse. The whole law of attraction thing, and the fact that chronic worry and fear is a form of stress that weakens the immune system.

Step 2 – Know the Risk. Know what to do

Take a close look at the actual chances of contracting a certain disease and what the risks are should you get the disease. Also, look at the available protocols and therapies to combat said disease. Since measles is a hot topic these days, let’s look at the risks of contracting the disease and how to deal with it naturopathically. In my last article, I shared a graph depicting how measles were on a natural decline on our planet even before any vaccine was invented against it. The incidences are so low, it’s not worth worrying about. Ok, but let’s say you or your loved actually do get infected. Then what? For the most part – let the disease run its course. That’s the best bet. Supplementing with oral Vitamin A can also significantly reduce any unpleasant symptoms and risk of serious complications.1

Let’s take a look at the risks involved if you’ve contracted measles.

If you’re a child in a well-developed country, the risks are extremely low. When scare tactics are used to say that 1 in a 1000 children that get measles will develop encephalitis, they are leaving out the fact that those statistics are true for impoverished and malnourished children.2 Dr. Robert Mendelsohn states “the incidence of true encephalitis is probably more like 1/10,000 or 1/100,000.”3 Ironically, encephalitis is listed as the first adverse reaction in the nervous system under the side effects of the measles’ vaccine.4

Since malnutrition is the main condition that leads to the more serious complications of measles,5 then healthy diet is a top priority for prevention and to combat it should it come a knocking.

Go see your local naturopath and homeopath. They can help build up the immune system, offer great nutritional advice and give you and your loved ones a great advantage over measles and other infectious diseases. The homeopathic constitutional remedy is a great ally in the fight against any invading organism. And homeopaths are also trained at administering remedies that fit the exact and unique form in which the infectious disease is acting up in an acute infection. Do not apply standard conventional protocols like antipyretics (fever-reducing drugs), as the fever is a natural mechanism of the immune system. The high temperature of the body actually helps to kill off the virus. So lowering the fever is like going into a fight with your arms tied behind your back. Oh, and don’t go on antibiotics if you have measles. Why? Because the measles are caused by a virus and antibiotics cannot and do not kill viruses. They never have and never will. They are designed only for bacterial infections. If you have pneumonia, also make sure to ask if it’s viral or bacterial, as doctors often prescribe antibiotics indiscriminately for both viral and bacterial pneumonia.

Step 3 – Homeoprophylaxis

Acquaint yourself with the startling world of Homeoprophylaxis. That’s a mouthful. What does it mean? It means taking a dose of a disease prepared into a homeopathic medicine to prevent against infection from that same disease. This is similar to the concept of a vaccine but has no actual live virus, so no risk of getting the infection from the vaccine, and absolutely no deadly toxins, as are contained in vaccines. Also, it’s dirt cheap compared to the cost of vaccination production.6 It’s quick and easy to administer and an entire village can be Homeoprophylaxized (sic) all for the cost of one homeopathic remedy. And best of all, it works! Homeopathy works very well for people suffering from chronic disease with very individualized causes and histories. But homeopathy is also very effective for epidemics.

“A little known fact of history is that homeopathic medicine developed its popularity in the United States as well as in Europe because of its successes in treating the infectious epidemics that raged during the 19th century. Dr. Thomas L. Bradford’s The Logic of Figures, published in 1900, compares in detail the death rate in homeopathic versus allopathic (conventional) medical hospitals and shows that death rates per 100 patients in homeopathic hospitals were often one-half or even one-eighth that of conventional medical hospitals.”7, 8

“In 1849 the homeopaths of Cincinnati claimed that in over a thousand cases of cholera only 3% of the patients died. To substantiate their results they even printed the names and addresses of patients who died or who survived in a newspaper. (28) The death rate of patients with cholera who used conventional medicines generally ranged from 40 to 70%.”9

“Dr. T. A. McCann, from Dayton, Ohio, at the 77th annual conventional at the American Institute of Homeopathy in Washington, D.C., in 1921, reported that 24,000 cases of flu were treated allopathically, which had a mortality rate of 28.2%, while 26,000 cases of flu treated homeopathically had a mortality rate of only 1.05%.”10

Samuel Hahnemann, the founder of homeopathy, also proved homeopathy’s effectiveness during a scarlet fever epidemic at the end of the 18th century.11

The use of homeopathy prophylactically to protect against diseases most closely reflects its potency against epidemics because we are using specific remedies known to protect against widespread disease. As I revealed in my last article about the lack of safety in vaccinations, there is a clear revolving door between the pharmaceutical industry that manufactures the vaccine, and the governing bodies that approve and mandate the vaccines. It shouldn’t be too much of a shock to recognize that those same governing bodies and pharmaceutical corporations are the ones making the most effort to condemn and discredit homeopathy. Why? Because it’s cheap and it’s effective. There goes profit out of the window. Sound cynical? I really do wish it wasn’t so. But unfortunately many things come down to the bottom dollar even when it sets the conflict of interest bells a-ringing and violates many human moral and ethical codes. So as the grouchy powerful lobbying medical control freaks attempt to squash homeopathy into the netherworld, we’ll take a look at how mind-bogglingly powerful it is to protect against, and of course treat, the infectious diseases of this world.

I’ve been sold hook, line, and sinker into homeopathy ever since my first class during my studies of naturopathic medicine. I’ve seen it work wonders for my cases and for myself. But I had always been a little skeptical regarding Homeoprophylaxis until I read the reports and heard the story about the Cuban government, in 2007, administering leptospirosis homeopathic remedies to a large portion of the population of Cuba. Every year, Cuba goes through a cycle of Leptospirosis epidemic. This is especially true following hurricanes flooding the countryside and when water pollution reaches a very high level.

“The Cubans have come to depend on themselves for the production of medicines, health care programs, etc. And since they have no pharmaceutical multi-nationals to stop them, they were able to conduct the leptospirosis project on a massive scale unknown in the history of homeopathy.”12

“In late 2007, the Cuban government rapidly distributed a homeopathic nosode (a remedy prepared from a disease component) of four leptospirosis strains to 2.3 million people at high risk of infection from an annual leptospirosis epidemic. The remaining population of 8.8 million was untreated. Within weeks, the treated provinces had an 84% decrease in disease incidence while the numbers of those infected in untreated provinces continued at expected historical levels. The intervention was “strongly associated with a drastic reduction of disease incidence resulting in complete control of the epidemic.” The protective effect continued into 2008 with an 84% reduction in leptospirosis cases for the treated areas though no further prophylactic had been given. Leptospirosis infections in untreated areas increased by 22%.”13

After reading this, I was sold. And then upon further investigation, I couldn’t believe how many large-scale success stories of Homeoprophylaxis there are.

Japanese Encephalitis was getting to be a serious problem in India. “It had caused significant morbidity and mortality in the state of Andhra Pradesh for several decades. In 1986, a high of 2038 cases with 638 deaths was recorded…/ When the Government Department of Indian Medicine and Homoeopathy began to systematically distribute prophylactics in 1999 via Public Health Centres, Government Homeopathic Dispensaries, homoeopathic pharmacies and homoeopathic doctors, notifications and mortality dropped to nil by 2003.”14,15

Notifications and mortality dropped to zero. Nil. Gone as a problem. That is significant. This was administered to a population of 20 million children under the age of 15. That is something I trust in and would offer my own family in a time of a threatening crisis, and we’ve seen this sort of global scare with measles, Ebola, and H1N1 in the past few years alone.

The success of Homeoprophylaxis on Influenza, Hepatitis, Diptheria, Malaria, Dengue fever, Cholera, Polio, Smallpox, Whooping cough and other diseases has been studied all with great success and unmistakeable results.16 Sometimes incremental improvements of 5-10% leave doubt in the minds of people regarding the effectiveness of certain treatments. But when Homeoprophylaxis is put to the test with the common infectious diseases on our planet, the sands of doubt are blown away by the powerful winds of homeopathy. Improvements in the 80-90 percentiles. Mortality dropping by 90% and more, even to nil. More studies can be perused here – and the works of one of the leading scientists on Homeoprophylaxis, Isaac Golden, can be explored to further convince oneself that not only does Homeoprophylaxis work, but it works well, saves money, lives, and offers a very viable alternative to the dangerous, toxic, and disease-causing vaccination option.

A powerful anecdote of Homeoprophylaxis occurred recently in one of my circles. I was quite alarmed to hear that one of the major naturopathic colleges in North America, where I teach my class of Holistic Counseling, began mandating measles vaccinations during the recent measles scare. Basically, if you were a student or worker at the college and your antibody titers against measles were too low, you could not enter the campus. Needless to say, like myself, many of the naturopathic students were in an uproar and did not want to have to take the vaccine when their antibody titers proved to be lower than acceptable. One student whose low titers meant he needed the vaccine, instead took the nosode for the measles, (the remedy prepared from the disease itself) called morbilinum. Ten days later he was very pleased to see that his antibody titers had risen to satisfactory levels. He did not need to take the vaccination. With his permission to publish the results, but respecting his desire to remain anonymous, as well as removing any personal information about the clinics and doctors, here are the results before and after the remedy morbilinum was taken.

Now, knowing all these powerful steps we can take to prevent infectious disease and also treat it should we contract the illness, we can add several more weapons in the “not to worry” arsenal of Step 1. Don’t worry because with good nutrition, healthy immune system boosting, classical homeopathy for the constitution, and Homeoprophylaxis, the likelihood of contracting and becoming badly affected by serious infectious illness dwindles close to Nil.
