my first baby was born I hadn’t even thought about vaccines, but almost
as soon as I met him, I had to start. I began reading anything and
everything I could find time for about the vaccine debate. I felt sure
that Enzo was too young to start getting hits of aluminum, perservatives
and additives into his tiny body. I only wanted breastmilk to go into
him at first. Though I wasn’t totally opposed to vaccines, I did want to
know more before I started administering anything directly into his
Enzo was born with a yeast infection that just wouldn’t go away. The
pediatrician sent me home with a slew of cortisone creams that would
help for a minute, but then the rash would come back with vengeance. It
spread into my breasts and into my baby’s mouth and seemed to get worse
every day. Someone sent me to a homeopath and the very moment that we
gave him the remedy, the yeast literally melted away and never came
back. It also left my breasts and we never had to think about it again.
Homeopathy became a regular part of Enzo’s life, but I really didn’t
know very much about it. It made a tremendous difference in him though
and my husband and I were both astonished at the fast and effective
results of each remedy we used for him.
I didn’t want to read Robert Sears’ book, The Vaccine Book,
for fear I would surely decide to go to the pediatrician and give him at
least a selective schedule. But finally, when Enzo turned 8 months, I
decided to pick it up.
The book didn’t make me feel I needed to bolt to the pediatrician’s
office. It seemed to say that one way or another he would be all right.
My baby wasn’t in day care and was breastfeeding—that seemed to be
enough to exempt him, at least temporarily, from the routine vaccine
schedule. I was shocked. My husband and I discussed the options and
opted to keep studying and breastfeeding until things seemed really
clear. It didn’t seem they ever would.
Some months later, at an appointment with Enzo’s homeopath, she passed me Kate Birch’s book, Vaccine
Free Prevention and Treatment of Infections Contagious Disease with
Homeopathy: A Manual for Practitioners and Consumers. That night I started reading and I couldn’t put it down. I read straight through and stayed up until midnight.
No one had yet explained to me what homeopathy was, why it worked,
where it all began and what it could do. I had watched it work on my
child, but didn’t know what it was. The book introduced the history of
homeopathy and elegantly addressed the topic of vaccines in a way that
finally made sense to me.
In reading, I realized that I had also been vaccine damaged myself.
As a girl, I suffered from chronic ear infections and they bombarded my
system with penicillin, which, though has its place in the world of
medicine, killed off all of my good and bad bacteria making me extremely
susceptible to illness. I developed an allergy to the antibiotic as a
teenager. I caught every flu going around growing up.
The book explains that head-banging and ear infections are two very commonvaccine
reactions. Some babies’ immature immune systems cannot yet ward off and
fight the pathogens being introduced to their systems and the pathogens
therefore roam around the baby body searching for a place to imbed.
They often end up in the ear or in the head making for these common
Kate offers an alternative schedule that introduces the diseases to
the immune system using homeoprophylaxis, inciting an immune response
much like that of a vaccine without the potential effects of
immunization. The most impressive thing about this is that using blood
titer draws they have found that the children using this alternative to
vaccines do, indeed, have the antibodies to the diseases they have been
After reading this riveting book, I knew that I would not vaccinate
my baby. There were too many interesting cases against it, and this
alternative seemed clear and even safe.
The book even inspired me to start studying to become a homeopath
myself and I have since been part of a study group every two weeks and
will be in an intensive course with a homeopathic doctor from India
starting next month.
I was invited to be part of a conference call with Kate Birch and the
other homeopaths throughout Canada and the United States that are
signing families up for the alternative immunization schedule and
supervising their treatments. I am considering opening the program here
in Mendocino, CA where 40% of families choose not to vaccinate their
children. This is a method that can safeguard our town and towns like
ours against epidemics of whooping cough and measles that are already
starting to crop up due to such low rates of immunization.
After talking to Kate and the other homeopaths I went home and
started studying Isaac Golden’s website with more scrutiny. I saw some
incredible things. This practice is not new. Samuel Hahnemann, the
founder of homeopathy, first used homeoprophylaxis in 1798 to prevent
Scarlet Fever and since it has been used to treat millions of people
around the world to prevent infectious contagious disease.
Golden has been treating children with homeoprophylaxis for over 20
years. Kate Birch’s program is based on his research, schedule and
potencies. He has followed the overall health of over 2,500 kids for 20
years charting their level of health in 5 categories: skin, lungs,
nose/throat/ears, allergies and behavior. He has charted the health of
children vaccinated with traditional vaccines, children not vaccinated,
children treated with classical homeopathy and children treated with
homeoprophylaxis and the latter have been the healthiest children across
the board with 0-1% incidence of any complaint in all five categories.
I read that in 1998 homeoprophylaxis was used to treat 65,826
Brazilian children during an epidemic of meningococcal meningitis there
was no vaccine at the time so a group of homeopaths developed the nosode
to treat the children. 23,539 children in the same region were not
treated. After 6 months the efficacy of homeoprophylaxis was 95% and it
was 91% by the end of a year.
In Cuba in 2007 a homeopathic nosode was used to stop an epidemic
outbreak of leptospirosis after extreme weather conditions caused
terrible flooding and a breakdown of sanitation levels in the country.
2.3 million people with treated with two doses of the nosode and within
weeks there was a dramatic decrease in morbidity. To this day the
epidemic is under control.
Could homeoprophylaxis be an alternative for families like mine? I am
still debating whether or not to put my own son on the program, and
this film will be part of that exploration. I am looking for another
option–a non-toxic option–and this may be it.
Kate is starting large scale research projects now and will implement
homeoprophylaxis programs as a vaccine alternative in the US, Canada,
India, Europe and Africa this year. I have started to collect funds for a
documentary on homeoprophylaxis to find out if this is actually a
viable alternative to vaccines.
Golden’s doctoral thesis states that the best possible system would
involve a dual system of immunization where parents could choose either
to vaccinate or use homeoprophylaxis. Because antibodies are seen in the
bloodstreams of treated children, there doesn’t seem to be a reason
this couldn’t become a legal alternative to routine vaccines.
