Our Founder

Cilla Whatcott

On February 13th, 2024, Cilla passed after a long bout with illness. The Real Vitality Team is dedicated to continuing her legacy of support for families and individuals seeking real answers, real hope, and real health. We are dedicated to maintaining the quality educational products, classes and services that Cilla was known for as we carry her legacy forward.

Producer and executive director of the Real Immunity film series, Cilla brought a rich and varied background of personal and professional experiences to her healing practice. She lived in the Republic of the Marshall Islands, on the East coast, the West coast and aboard a sailboat in the Bahamas. Her travels to Asia, Russia, Europe, the Caribbean, and Micronesia have instilled a deep respect for humankind and an intuitive understanding of human nature.

She held a B.A. degree from Arizona State University, a diploma from the four year professional program at Northwestern Academy of Homeopathy, Minneapolis, MN and a PhD in clinical homeopathy from Kingdom College. She was an instructor at Normandale Community College in Minnesota for eight years, teaching classes about homeopathy, vaccines, and autism.  She was the co-founder of a non-profit 501c3 for the education of homeopathic practitioners in homeoprophylaxis.

Cilla was a forerunner in opening the conversation regarding the need for safe immunizations as early as 2008, while teaching at Normandale Community College and a pioneer bringing homeoprophylaxis to American families. Her interviews with illuminaries such as Andy Wakefield, Del Bigtree, Paul Thomas and others preceded their meteoric rise to popularity. 

Prior to finding homeopathy, Cilla was a professional dancer/choreographer who performed with a Chinese company, led her own dance company in the Marshall Islands, had a studio on Whidbey Island, WA, and loved performing modern, tap, and ballet.
