Nature has provided our body with all the necessary tools to eradicate any foreign invaders such as bacteria, viruses, fungi, allergens, and other parasites. As well as this, at the same time, our body cells are fully capable of repairing themselves from internal malfunctioning. If damaged body cells become irreparable then another biological system kicks in due to which damaged cells are terminated by triggering the process of cell suicide – known as apoptosis.
Such compact and self-sustained body systems which have built-in, highly effective protocols to safeguard itself from the onslaughts of external and internal dangers. The question arises: does our body need foreign help in the form of pharmaceutically prepared, chemically-ridden drugs and vaccines full of toxic ingredients? The logical answer is a big NO!
The human body is composed of nearly three trillion cells. These cells are knitted together in such a fashion that they communicate with each other through a mind-body matrix. External and internal signals channel through the two-way mind-body matrix, changing our physical, emotional and mental state. The disease enters our systems through the mind and body.
Infectious diseases are one of the main causes of concern for medical science. Epidemic and endemic occurrence of infectious diseases are being controlled by the use of vaccinations. The philosophy of vaccination is not wrong. What is wrong is the current method of inoculation in the form of combination vaccinations. The effects of these combo vaccinations on human economy are neither fully studied nor fully reported . Secondly, the use of vaccines either individually or in combination contains dangerous incipient, toxic elements, which can wreak havoc with the health of a new-born baby and young children. Therefore, there is a call from the sensible members of the scientific community that new-borns should be screened before vaccinations for immune-deficiency .
Before we proceed further, let us define two most important terms, vaccine and immunization, to clear our understanding about their difference.
What is a Vaccine:
I have searched for the true definition of the vaccine but none of the available definitions gives a true picture of the term vaccine. Therefore, I have decided to define vaccine as follows; “a preparation containing killed or weakened pathogens (bacteria or virus) along with chemical preservatives and other incipient, that is usually given by injection or orally to increase protection against infectious disease”.
What is Immunization:
The action of making a person immune to infectious disease is called immunization.
Immunization can be achieved through the process of vaccination or through natural alternatives.
From the above discussion and two definitions, it is clear, that in order to safeguard ourselves from infectious diseases vaccine is not important, it is immunization which is a most important aspect to boost our immune system and to protect ourselves from infectious diseases.
There is a rationale in every action of mother nature. If the immune system of a new-born baby remains weak for some time and is unable to handle all the possible attacks from disease-causing agents, like bacteria and viruses, it is due to the fact that mother nature engineers this vulnerability deliberately. Therefore during this time of vulnerability, mother nature allows friendly beneficial microbes to colonize in the baby’s gut, skin, mouth and lungs, and thus strengthens the natural power of budding immune system .
As mother nature proceeds gradually to strengthen a budding immune system of an infant, this gradual process completes within 6 years or this period of time extends all the way up to adulthood. The intervention of vaccines, containing toxic substances, in fact, interferes with the natural progression and development of the immune system.
What are Prophylactics?
A substance (medicinal or non-medicinal) or a course of action used to prevent disease, is called prophylactic.
Since in this article our main focus is on the prevention of infectious diseases therefore, we can say any form of intervention to prevent infectious disease is called prophylactic. Vaccines are one form of prophylactics. There are many other natural, non-invasive, non-toxic methods available besides vaccines to prevent the spread of infectious diseases. For example, the use of certain superfoods, vitamins and supplements, herbal products/tinctures/ oils, and specific homeopathic remedies, also used as prophylactics.
What is Homeoprophylaxis:
The method to use specific homeopathic remedies to prevent infectious diseases is called Homeoprophylaxis (HP) and these specific homeopathic remedies are called homeoprophylactics.
The use of homeopathic remedies as prophylactics dates back to the times of the inception of the homeopathic system. Two hundred years ago the founder of the homeopathic system of medicines Dr Samuel Hahnemann was setting up the guiding principles of this new complementary healthcare system. He also used successfully homeopathic remedy belladonna to prevent the spread of scarlet fever. Homeoprophylactic nature of homeopathic remedies was further tested and supported by Cristoph Hufeland (1762–1836), who has been described as the greatest German clinician of the late 18th century and who founded a respected and still extant medical journal in Göttingen in his article published in The Lancet in 1829 . Hufeland reported that;
- The proper use of belladonna has, in most cases, prevented infection, even in those instances where, by the continual intercourse with patients labouring under scarlet fever, the predisposition towards it was greatly increased.
- Numerous observations have shown that, by the general use of belladonna, epidemics of scarlet fever have actually been arrested.
III. In those few instances where the use of belladonna was insufficient to prevent infection, the disease has been invariably slight.
- There are exceptions to the above three points, but their number is extremely small.
There were other favourable controlled trials and reviews on the efficacious nature of homeopathic remedy belladonna in case of scarlet fever .
Since then, homeopathic remedies have been successfully used as prophylactics in almost all infectious diseases for which conventional vaccines are being used. The protection provided by homeoprophylactics is not less efficacious than the protection provided by any other contemporary method. Rather in some cases, homeoprophylactics found to be equal or more effective than contemporary methods of disease control .
The new scientific discoveries are also telling us that homeopathic remedies are also capable to change gene expression . Such innovative findings make homeopathic remedies a strong contender in the field of immunogenic products to not only prevent diseases but also to strengthen the immune system starting from infancy to old age  .
At Mind-Body Clinic, for the past 15 years, all such innovations are culminated into a robust Homeoprophylaxis (HP) programme to prevent diseases with non-invasive, nontoxic, yet subtle natural methods.
Key Constituents of Main Homeoprophylaxis (HP) Programme:
At Mind-Body Clinic, our HP programme constitutes the following key parts.
- Specific Homeoprophylactic Remedies (Nosodes / homeopathic remedies)
- Sequence-Specific Homeopathic DNAs (SSHDs)
- Recommendation for Vitamins & Supplements
Length of the HP programme: 84 months
Start age: 0 months to onwards
Diseases Covered: Depends upon the geographical region of the client, and exposure to infectious diseases.
Administration Method: A monthly dose of HP remedy administer by parents or guardian.
Appointment Required: Yes, for registration purpose and for case history and other details
Follow Up Appointment Required: No
Appointment Method: In the office / Online
HP Service for International Clients: Yes (Via phone / online)
There are HP programmes offered by other homeopaths, but none of these programmes provides such diverse set of complementary healthcare products in a single HP programme, provided by Mind-Body Clinic, in which all components work synergistically to prevent and strengthen the immune system, for all age groups.
N.B. No claim is being made whatsoever for the effectiveness of homeoprophylaxis or any other components of Homeoprophylaxis programme offered at Mind-Body Clinic.
