Homeopathic Flu Vaccine Information vs. Chemical Drug Injections

Homeopathy is a system of medicine over 200 years old, with roots going back to Hippocrates. It is in widespread use and officially recognised in many countries, most notably in the United Kingdom, France, Germany, Holland, Italy and India. There are homeopathic teaching hospitals located in the United Kingdom and India. Homeopathy has a long history in Canada and the United States, as well, though its popularity has declined with the emergence in the last 50 years of the so-called “wonder drugs.” However, as public concern over the disease effects (so-called “side-effects”) of these chemical drugs in crude doses has increased, interest has once again grown in the gentle, curative system of medicine known as homeopathy.
Where the prevailing medical system in North America generally works on the natural Law of Opposites (anti-biotics, anti-depressants, anti-histamines), homeopathic medicine works on the Law of Similars, which has been identified since Hippocrates’ time as the natural law of cure. The use of medicine on the basis of opposites only gives temporary relief or simply suppresses the disease, driving it deeper into the organism – it cannot cure.
Where allopathic (conventional) medicine does use the law of similars, it is inadvertent and the dose given is too strong, causing iatrogenic (meaning “doctor-caused”) diseases. For example, Ritalin is an amphetamine (speed) chemically identical to cocaine. Conventional medicine gives this “speed” to children they feel are “speeding,” or hyperactive. Radiation is one of the most horrific carcinogenic agents, yet it is used in cancer treatment. The concept is sound, but the dosage can be deadly at worst, or dangerous at best.
Homeopathic medicine uses minute amounts of substances that are similar to the symptoms of the disease. In this way the artificial disease of the medicine will annhilate the natural disease. In a patient with hayfever symptoms, for example, an infinitesimal amount of the remedy Allium cepa (red onion) be used to cause a slight initial exacerbation of symptoms, followed by relief of the symptoms.
The Law of Similars is, interestingly, the principle behind vaccinations. However, the dose and method of delivery commonly used by doctors poses a significant risk of harm to those being vaccinated. Conventional vaccinations involve crude doses of the microbe linked to the disease being vaccinated against, and the dose is injected directly into the blood stream, bypassing all of the natural defense mechanisms of the body. Thus, the body receives too strong a dose and too suddenly, creating a shock to the organism that can lead to reactions, from mild to severe, including death in some cases. The use of actual viral material also sets the body up for auto-immune disorders, a fact well documented in the research literature.
Along with the crude quantity of virus material injected directly into the person’s bloodstream, there are also the carrying agents in the vaccine fluid itself. It can contain acetone – used in nail polish removers and furniture strippers; thimerisol – a mercury-derivative outlawed for use in contact lens wetting solutions because it is a carcinogen; formaldehyde and other insidious substances.
The homeopathic immunization, on the contrary, provides an oral dose of an infinitesimal amount of the virus material alone, which does not shock the system. By following natural laws, is able to reach deeply into the cellular and energetic levels of the patient and stimulate a more wholistic immune response, without risk to the filtering systems (kidneys, liver) of the body or of generating any auto-immune response, such as allergies. Because it is processed through the mucous membranes, as it would be if the virus were contracted in nature, its action is more wholistic.
With the Center for Disease Control in the United States reporting that “…influenza vaccines are still among the least effective immunizing agents available, and this seems to be particularly true for elderly recipients,” the homeopathic alternative offers a safe and effective prevention against influenza.
Homeopathic prevention for past infectious diseases, such as cholera and influenza, are in the public record and have been proven highly effective. In one case involving vaccination against meningitis, out of 18,640 children homeopathically immunised during an epidemic, only 4 cases were recorded (0.0002 percent), while out of some 6,340 non-vaccinated children 17 cases of meningitis were recorded (0.003 percent, or almost 10 times the rate of infection). No system of vaccination can provide a 100% guarantee of protection, as factors such as nutrition, stress and predisposing factors also come into play. However, the homeopathic immunisation is unique in being free of side-effects, being gentle (administered orally), and highly effective.
And in the influenza epidemic of 1918-1919, where the conventional medical death rates were soaring to 30% and beyond, the homeopathic physicians of that time (all MDs) lost fewer than 1% of their patients.
The homeopathic flu vaccine — this oral vaccine is a safe and effective alternative to the toxic medical injectable vaccine. It has no side effects — only side benefits! Contrast that with the adverse events reported from the flu shot (these references, and many more, available):
- Neurological complications
- Guillain-Barre Syndrome (GBS)
- Facialis paralysis
- Paralysis of the extremities
- Landry syndrome (8)
- Hypoglossus nerve paralysis (11)
- Paresthesia (formication and numbness) have been noticed (4, 8)
- Trigeminus neuralgia (8)
- Ischialgia (right sided) (8)
- Intercostal neuralgia (chestpain) (8)
- Sensory brachial plexus neuropathy (Parsonage-Turner Syndrome) (8, 12, 13).
- Multiple Sclerosis
- Disorientation about places (8)
- Trembling of upper limbs (21)
- Automatic motions of fingers and toes (21)
- Aphasia (loss of speech) (8)
- Respiratory Infections
- Gastro-intestinal problems
- Nausea (8)
- Rectal incontinence (8)
- Urinary symptoms
- Dysuria or paralysis of the bladder
- Sexual problems
- Noises in the ears (8)
- Impeded hearing (8)
- Prooptosis (8)
- Oedema of the retina (8)
- Diminished vision; blurred vision (8)
- Diplopia (8)
- Nystagmus (8)
- Paralysis of eye muscles (cranial nerves VII &X) (8)
- Circulatory problems
- Collapse (8)
- Transient livid discoloration of the hands (8)
- Allergic thrombocytopenia in a 58 years old man 7 days after vaccination
- Disturbed blood pressure (both increased of decreased) (8)
- Angor pectoris (8)
- Collapse (8)
- General symptoms
- Anaphylactic reactions
- Mental problems
- Difficulty in thinking (21)
- Loss of initiative (21)
- Confusion (14)
- Hallucinations (14)
- Emotional problems
- Sadness (21)
There is a belief generally that the usual flu vaccine is still worth it despite the obvious drawbacks. However, there is little or no acknowledgment of a safer and more effective alternative, mainly because of ignorance, prejudice and the power of drug companies (in terms of advertising and control over expensive research). There IS an alternative.
Homeopathy – the safe, effective medicine.
