Rent: noun 1: an opening made by or as if by rending 2: a split in a party or organized group: SCHISM
A dear friend tearfully approached me expressing her fear that our relationship would be fractured over differences of opinion on the pandemic. It broke my heart to think that a cherished friendship could fall apart as a result of the turmoil taking place in the world.
Relationships are based on communication. As long as there is honest communication, differences don’t matter. Love transcends differences.
Perhaps you too have experienced a “rent” in relationships. Here are some important things to remember:
Relationships are based on communication. As long as there is honest communication, differences don’t matter. Love transcends differences.
People who love each other, support each other. They don’t judge each other. We are entitled to learn, evolve and grow at our own speed. This isn’t a race.
Despite the maelstrom of conflicting information, we can still be pro-active with our health. Terrain theory vs germ theory totally applies here and that’s another discussion. Suffice it to say, take responsibility for your health and trust, don’t judge yourself for your choices.
The track record of homeopathy in many epidemics is stellar. Between using homeoprophylaxis and having homeopathy for treatment, fear can be greatly reduced. This brings us to the elephant in the room:
Transmuting fear is part of the bigger picture. Because this is a global influence, step back and take the 30,000 ft view — the spiritual perspective. Part of it is:
Humanity is transforming. We are being called to raise the level of consciousness individually and as a result, collectively. This includes moving from a 3-dimensional consciousness to a 5-dimensional consciousness. And this means:
When we perceive reality as good/bad; right/wrong; black/white; true/false, us/them, it’s a 3-dimensional view. Duality causes us pain.
5-dimensional consciousness is embracing non-judgement and love. We are safe, we are observing instead of judging. If there “is opposition in all things” as we are taught by religions around the world, then the energy present that divides and frightens us is especially strong right now. The call is to transform that energy and keep moving back into 5D perception.
There are no easy answers for how to accomplish this monumental shift in awareness. The challenges are unique to each person. We need to be forgiving with ourselves. In the process we will move back and forth between 3D and 5D consciousness. It’s actually necessary for the pendulum to swing. This is how we learn – by feeling the discomfort, learning to recognize the contrast, and then making a conscious choice about how we want to see the world.
For many years, Cilla has been offering her HP Practitioner Training Program to practitioners around the world who want to learn how to administer HP to their patients.
I love to teach and have been asked by many different professionals if I would train them to administer homeoprophylaxis, or HP. As a result, I have created a comprehensive training program that includes the history of HP, current applications, studies regarding effectiveness, administration, case management, trouble shooting, forms, documentation, flow charts, and much more.
The class is taught in online video conference sessions, and offers an additional one-on-one conference session with me, that’s scheduled at your convenience. The training certifies you to effectively administer HP to families and provide follow up care.
This class is ideal for midwives, nurse practitioners, physician’s assistants, MD’s, DO’s, or those in alternative health fields who have an active practice.Participants must have at least a few years of case management skills and the ability to administer homeopathic remedies as determined by your individual state licensure.
Classes are kept very small to allow for discussion, interaction, and a deeper understanding of the principles presented.

For anyone looking to broaden their understanding of immunity, vaccines, homeoprophylaxis, and historical evidence for homeopathy, the support and research to investigate these and many more topics are found in Cilla’s book, There is a Choice: Homeoprophylaxis, An Appeal to Mothers.
This is Cilla’s second book, and it’s a gold mine of resources to support families considering alternatives to vaccines. You’ll come away feeling confident that you are on the right path to health. While providing concrete research and evidence in regard to vaccines and homeoprophylaxis, this book isn’t written to overwhelm; laypeople can come to the book to have their questions answered and feel supported by Cilla’s gentle words and recommendations. Here is a list of just some of the topics covered:
The Big Business of Vaccines, The Immune System (cell-mediated and antibody mediated response), Chronic and Acute Disease, Germ vs. Terrain Theory, Vaccine Studies, Homeoprophylaxis, Current and Historical Evidence for HP, Dr. Isaac Golden (founder of HP), Your Legal Rights, CEASE Therapy
Cilla begins her book by sharing her own family’s experience with vaccines and how she came to choose HP as a viable alternative. She describes the overwhelming, yet empowering experience that came from her daughter’s diagnosis of aseptic meningitis after being vaccinated. The story from there is an all too familiar one: Her pediatrician refused to validate the clear evidence that her daughter had a vaccine injury. What followed was the understanding that “no one was going to look out for my kids as I do. It was up to me. Period.” From there Cilla made it her life’s work to support other mothers and offer them alternative choices to the vaccines offered by conventional medicine.
She goes on to share this alternative, Homeoprophylaxis (HP), but not before she discusses the deception campaigns that have long made alternatives to vaccines unavailable. She goes on in her second chapter to reveal the year-to-year sales growth of the various vaccines offered, as well as how many of the CDC administrators are also high-ranking executives or consultants of major pharmaceutical companies, an obvious conflict of interest.
As Cilla has often shown us, one cannot appreciate the power of HP without first understanding the immune system and how the body responds to disease. She describes the body’s response to the multivalent vaccines as problematic: “Allowing the body to mount a complete response to one disease at a time is the most beneficial.” She goes on to describe what a “complete response” looks like on page 61 of her book. Recently, Paola Brown, President of Americans for Homeopathy Choice and creator of Teach Me Health and Homeopathy interviewed Cilla and created a really neat illustrated depiction of this complete response, and how homeopathy can be used to assist the body when needed, you can view this illustration by clicking here.
To watch Paola Brown’s illustration of the Cycle of Illness, click here.
Cilla goes on to describe that as HP only introduces one disease at a time, the immune system is able to “mount a response and resolve the disease effectively.” Here are some other essential points she covers regarding HP:
HP encourages your body to overcome diseases, and is a method that used diluted and potentized (homeopathically prepared) particles.
HP respects the immune system by offering one disease at a time through the natural route of the mucous membrane.
HP contains no adjuvants, antibiotics, detergents, foreign DNA and other materials that can cause adverse reactions and side effects.
HP has been utilized since the 1800’s, and has been endorsed by many nations and countries for epidemic diseasesThe major benefit of HP is that is “educated the immune system” helping the body to overcome disease symptoms and/or mildly symptomatic cases should the disease be contracted.
If you are looking for more support in broadening your understanding of HP, this resource has everything you need–including solid advice on what how to make the best choice for your family. For parents who are not on the same page as far as what choice to make, Cilla also offers valuable input on how to find common ground. You can hear the non-judgemental voice of a homeopath in her sage advice regarding the importance of listening and validating one another: “Once they feel validated, they are actually able to listen without getting defensive…All I want to do is empower parents. I’ve spent many years gathering information and seeing the clinical results of my patients. If I can share that, with you, or your partner, you will have more information to make a good decision for your child.”
Wondering if you may have the flu? Want to be prepared in case your family does come down with the flu? You’ve come to the right place.
In Cilla’s online class Nine Remedies for the Flu, she shares a brief, yet impactful history of the use of homeopathy versus conventional methods for various flus. As you may have guessed, homeopathy came through with flying colors in several cases with unprecedented results. Frequently, the conventional treatment for influenza actually caused severe side effects, as in the case of the 1918 Spanish flu when Aspirin was employed to lower fevers and it simply drove the illness to the lungs.
Be prepared for flus and viruses with homeopathic knowledge! These nine remedies will help you manage whatever comes your way in the most gentle and natural way. The practical tips will prepare you to use nine remedies for fevers, vomiting, aches, pains, and more. Ideal for the mom who wants applicable knowledge to use with her family right away.
Most Real Immunity followers are already familiar with the Health Helix, Cilla’s visual explanation of how illness, when suppressed, can be driven deeper into the body. The Health Helix presents a visual explanation of the damage conventional drugs and suppressed symptoms can cause by giving many examples, like how the use of cortisone cream actually is correlated with later onset of asthma as benign skin issues such as eczema are driven deeper into the body.
Cilla starts the class by making an important distinction regarding the flu: Often what we think is the flu is a different virus or illness, but regardless of the cause, flu-like symptoms: fever, headache, lack of energy, sore throat, runny nose, and body aches can be addressed with homeopathic medicines. Cilla reviews nine remedies for the flu (or flu-like symptoms), including physical and emotional indications for the use of each. In the class she discusses how to distinguish flu symptoms from flu-like viral symptoms as well.
This class is so much more than a list of remedies though. There’s quite a bit of homeopathic theory as well. Cilla shares how mainstream thinking regarding viruses is shortsighted for various reasons. One reason is because our bodies are mostly comprised of bacteria, viruses and parasites: four poundsof such materials on average. She names the many viruses that most humans have riding along with them and shares that usually there is nothing at all wrong with these viruses lying latent in our bodies “as long as we just live in a balanced state.” She further shares that viruses, in fact, are essential for human evolution.
To better understand how homeopathy can benefit and address flu symptoms, Cilla addresses many of the misunderstandings regarding the immune system and flu vaccines. She shares that herd immunity can only happen when one acquires a disease naturally, which creates a cell-mediated immune response. It’s important to note that vaccines do not create a cell-mediated response, instead, as Cilla explains in her class, they artificially elevate antibody production (which compromises general immunity). Cilla shares research that shows the increased risk of respiratory viruses associated with the flu vaccine. Antibody production is not the gold standard for immunity.
Furthermore, Cilla warns that vaccines are often recommended for individuals who are actually at greatest risk of suffering a side-effect from the vaccine. She shares the many issues associated with flu vaccines in pregnant women, and how vaccines after age 50 are associated with neurological damage.
Another misconception that Cilla rebukes is that fevers are problematic. She shares why it is important to support a fever, how to support a fever and issues related to suppressing fevers. Fevers are simply another way the body discharges symptoms, and we never want to suppress such discharges. She offers information on how to support the flu and fevers using cell salts as well. By supporting the discharge process of flu symptoms with homeopathic remedies recommended in this class, Cilla shares that she has often seen lengthy flu symptoms truncated from two weeks to a few days. She shares a story of how she used Bryonia, when indicated for her flu-like symptoms and within hours she was back to normal.
Cilla ends the class by offering suggestions on how to homeopathically prevent flu symptoms. She shares why her favorite preventive remedy, Influenzium, a version of which she prepares herself for clients, is created with historical flus. [CURRENTLY OUT OF STOCK UNTIL future notice. She shares when and how to dose using Influenzinum as well. Cilla’s newest version of Influenzinum now contains homeopathically prepared components to boost immunity against current viruses.

Modern medicine has advanced many times over in the past few decades, more so when you look at the last century. Yet for all these advances, people remain unsatisfied with their treatment. It’s incomplete, and more often than not, come with a host of unwanted and often uncomfortable (or dangerous) side effects. Thankfully, there’s an alternative that offers gentler, more natural solutions.
What Is Homeopathy?
Quite simply, homeopathy is a full system of natural medicine that can be used to treat any person – i.e., any age, including infants and the elderly – as well as both pets and livestock. That’s because each treatment is customized specifically to the individual being treated. It was developed more than 200 years ago by Dr. Samuel Hahnemann, and it’s still being used today by more than 500 million people worldwide. It was even used in American hospitals until the mid-1900s, and is approved by the FDA.
How Homeopathy Works
Professional homeopaths are trained and certified to interpret the information shared by the body through energy in order to identify the cause of your symptoms. Utilizing the principle “like treats like,” homeopathic practitioners will match your symptoms to something in nature that causes them. When the correct remedy is used, relief can occur quickly, although it will take longer for chronic ailments. What’s more, homeopathy is curative and doesn’t simply mask your symptoms, the way many prescription medications do.
Why Choose Homeopathy?
Homeopathy is a gentle, natural way to heal the body in a way that encourages movement toward vitality and the body’s capability of healing and protecting itself. It’s also a straightforward and affordable process that makes treatments easy to dispense at home. In fact, while you ought to meet with a homeopathic practitioner to guide you, there’s a number of every-day bumps and bruises you can identify and remedy yourself.
Homeopathic practitioners can be found worldwide, including regions like Europe, Southeast Asia, and Central and South America.
Homeopathy is tried and true through 200 years of practice.
It was used in hospitals in the U.S. through the mid-1900s, and it’s still trusted today.
It can be used to treat anyone of any age, as well as pets and livestock.
It’s completely natural, and naturally supports the body’s ability to heal itself.
It can be used to address chronic conditions, including sinusitis, ear infections, asthma, and behavioral complaints.
It’s easy to practice some basic homeopathy at home, especially if you take advantage of resources like classes and digital materials.
Kits for home care are incredibly affordable, and no prescription is required.
Homeopathic remedies do not have side effects, unlike most pharmaceutical medications.
Advanced treatments, such as homeoprophylaxis, can protect you and your loved ones from infectious diseases.
Relief is felt quickly, and it never masks symptoms.
Homeopathy is a safe, natural alternative for anyone who’s dissatisfied with the treatment they’ve received from traditional, pharmaceutical-driven medicine. Each treatment is unique, because each body is unique, but homeopathic results are always the same – movement toward a healthier life and true vitality.

Ready to learn more about homeopathy or interested in sharing homeopathy with your family? Intro to Homeopathy is a fantastic class for homeschooling families and stepping stone into using homeopathy to address common health complaints!
So you are interested in homeopathy, but you would like to learn more about what it is and how it is used? Over 500 million people around the world use homeopathy. Here are just some reasons to learn more about this amazing medicine:
Homeopathy offers a safe way of addressing your children’s health concerns
Homeopathy is an option for individuals who have not found help from conventional and natural health modalities
Homeopathy is inexpensive and FDA regulated
If you’ve been considering learning more about homeopathy, Cilla’s class, Intro to Homeopathy, is an excellent starting point. If you have already delved into the study of practical homeopathy, but want to know how it differs from classical homeopathy (and whether or not it is safe), you should also consider this class.
Interestingly enough, homeopathy has appealed to intelligent and well-educated individuals for decades. As we learn in Intro to Homeopathy, homeopathy isn’t simply a medicine, it is a discipline and a way of thinking about health that far surpasses the limited viewpoints of conventional medical thought. Let’s start by highlighting some of the viewpoints this class presents:
Health and Adaptability:
Ever hear a mom brag that her child is “never sick?” Western society is guilty of exalting this idea that constant equals health. In Intro to Homeopathy, Cilla dives into the topic of wellness and how health is all about adaptability. Health is demonstrated by an immune system that is capable of rebounding after an illness. Regulation of the immune system is essential to health and only taught through a process of moving through the stages of an illness back to health. A homeopath looks for symptoms that point to a lag in physical, emotional or mental adaptability and assigns a remedy that addresses those areas.
Herring’s Law of Cure:
Unlike conventional medicine that seeks to suppress symptoms, homeopathy is all about listening to what our symptoms are saying! Through the course of homeopathic treatment, a homeopath tunes in to the symptoms presenting in order to determine a remedy and track progress towards health. In Intro to Homeopathy, Cilla describes Herring’s Law of Cure, and how this law helps us to determine one’s state of health as well as the healing process.
Three Principles of Homeopathy:
In order to define what homeopathy is, one must first understand the three distinguishing principles of homeopathy: The Law of Similars,which describes how like cures like; The Law of Totality, which says that a remedy is prescribed based on its expression through the entire organism; and finally, The Law of Minimal Dose, which says that only the smallest amount of medicine that initiates a healing should be given.

I love curiosity. It reflects an open mind, a desire to grow, and a spirit of self-reliance. In the current climate of polarization around the vaccine issue, people are seeking accurate information about homeoprophylaxis (HP)– What it is?How does it work? Is it safe?
Parents: Find out more about the safety and efficacy of HP by reading the commonly asked questions in this article. For further reading and information, see the resources listed at the bottom of the page.
Here are some of the most common questions and answers the Real Immunity Team has fielded. Find out how HP can benefit children that have already been gone the conventional medicine route, how it can be used for those traveling to foreign countries and for college students, how it is safe and does not shed, and how studies have shown that it provides better long-term health outcomes, and more:
I’ve been hearing this word, homeoprophylaxis, more and more. What exactly is it?
Homeoprophylaxis, also called HP, is the use of highly diluted substances for the purpose of educating the immune system in a gentle, non-toxic way.These are completely natural; contain no foreign cells, no antibiotics, no preservatives, no adjuvants, and no chemicals of any kind.
My doctor says there is no proof that HP works. Are there any studies?
HP has been studied over the last 200 years in retrospective studies, prospective studies, observational studies, and real-life, boots-on-the-ground applications for epidemics. You can see some of these studies by joining the free Knowledge Vault.
Someone told me this is a “homeopathic inoculation.” Is HP a substitute for conventional recommendations?
HP is perfectly safe when used under the supervision of a qualified practitioner. There are no adjuvants, preservatives, antibiotics, or other excipients in the pellets.
No, it is not a substitute. HP is “educating and exercising” the immune system to mature in the most robust way. It’s a completely different paradigm – one that promotes robust immunity and better long-term health.
How does it actually work?
HP provides the frequency of disease. It’s an energetic imprint that is recognized by the vital force of the body and as a result the disease is either not contracted, or an appropriate immune response is raised. For more on vitalism and how HP and homeopathy works, you can stream Cilla’s films Quest for Real Immunity and Passage to Real Immunity from the comfort of your home.
I’m worried about safety since there was a scare about those homeopathic teething tablets.
HP is completely safe when administered with proper supervision. It’s energetic information and contains no material substance. You cannot overdose. Additionally, there are no adjuvants, preservatives, antibiotics, or other excipients in the pellets. With over 1500 children in our programs, we have never seen any adverse effects.
Can HP benefit my child if he’s gone the conventional route?
Lots of parents choose to change lanes after seeing something that makes them uncomfortable. It’s possible to administer HP regardless of prior inoculations. While HP does not reverse injury, it can help to re-regulate the immune system to help it get back on track.
I’m worried about “shedding” since I have relatives with very young infants.
HP does not “shed” nor can you catch the disease from taking the pellets.
My daughter is older and starting college. Can she use HP at all?
Yes! HP can be used by babies (starting after 1 month of age), children of any age, college students, adults, people traveling to tropical areas, pregnant women, or to protect in an epidemic.Visit https://realimmunity.org to see all the services available.
I live in a state that will accept titers for the required diseases. Will HP provide these?
No, titers reflect an inflammatory response in the adaptive arm of the immune system. Real immunity results from a balanced response. HP aims to support natural maturation of immunity. Besides, some people are low or non-responders and don’t produce antibodies yet still don’t get sick. Homeopaths know this. Science hasn’t caught up yet.
My son was vaccinated, and I just want to detox him. Is this necessary before doing HP?
He may or may not need detoxing depending on how limiting symptoms are. Perhaps constitutional homeopathy can help, or maybe HP can be started.Best to consult with someone who is properly trained in HP administration.
HP can be given to babies (starting after 1 month of age), children of any age, college students, and adults–even pregnant women. Previously vaccinated individuals can actually BENEFIT from the use of HP.
What’s proper training?
The practitioners with Real Immunity are nationally board-certified homeopaths with over four years of training in homeopathy and additional in-depth training in homeoprophylaxis. Other practitioners trained through Real Immunity are provided 8 hours of training in all aspects of HP. Most importantly, find a practitioner you can relate to comfortably and who will provide you with any support needed as you administer the program at home.
My doctor says we need protection from all childhood diseases.
Isn’t it better to just do nothing, eat well and take supplements?
Yes, that’s the common assumption.And sound nutrition is definitely a part of robust immunity.Here’s the difference – When Dr. Isaac Golden did his 15-year study he found that the HP group had better long-term health outcomes. In other words, they had fewer colds, allergies, eczema, etc.He attributed this to the concept that they were actually receiving the diseases in an energetic form and thus had all the benefits of natural disease with none of the risks. In other words, they were “exercising their immune systems” in a healthy way.
Can you feel the panic emanating from the state of New York? I can!When rights are removed with no regard for due process, families naturally feel threatened and frightened. We are certainly living in interesting times. It‘s now more important than ever to stay focused in the present moment.
Remember the words of Dr. Debra Gambrell in The Quest for Real Immunity:“Fear is just a prayer for what we don’t want.” The most effective way to stay out of fear is to stay anchored in the present moment, not ruminate on the possible (unpredictable) future, and envision the outcome we want to see happen. This requires focus!
In a recent week-long meditation retreat with Dr. Joe Dispenza, we learned that where we focus our attention is where our energy goes. Thoughts and emotions have a vibration. They produce hormones and wire synapses in our brain. Repetition of thoughts or emotions have the potential to manifest results on the material plane. I witnessed this over and over again during that week and also saw scientific data validating brain scans associated with certain thoughts and moods.
Effort to focus attention is never wasted. Attention equals awareness; awareness equals consciousness.And each person who expands their consciousness, then raises the consciousness of others. No one needs to convince anyone else of anything; we just need to be clear and confident and aware. All things will work together as a result. Trust me. This is real.
We also live in a material world and are the observers of cause and effect. We need to prepare to the best of our ability. What are the options? What if I am forced to perform a medical act that may cause harm? Is there a way to mitigate such harm?What if I am in the military or immigrating an adopted child to the USA?And most importantly, what’s the big picture? Clearly society is birthing something huge with the fever that’s rising. How can we best usher in greater awareness?
Remember the cell salts that often offer us support in times of crisis, and are accessible even to those of us embarking onto the path of homeopathy. They offer a helping hand in moments of emotional turmoil, and can prepare the body in order to mitigate injuries without being swept away by the panic?
These are all answers I want to share with you. But not in a public forum at risk of being censored. My goal is to contribute to health and vitality; to uplift and inspire; to educate and expand. The remedy to much of the insanity we are observing is to go within and find peace and steadiness. In the words of Thich Nhat Hanh, “Freedom is not given to us by anyone; we have to cultivate it ourselves. It is a daily practice… No one can prevent you from being aware of each step you take or each breath in and breath out.”
For those struggling with fear, indecision and uncertainty regarding titers, and detoxing, I have created a class just for you! This online class will address the health concerns parents may be experiencing and ways to deal with the current compliance required by New York and other states who have recently outlawed religious exemptions.
Homeopathic cell salts, also known as Biochemical cell salts or Schüessler Salts (after their founder, Dr. William Schüessler) are thought of as the “easy” homeopathy and are certainly accessible to beginners. But even those who have used homeopathy for years have a lot to gain from the use of cell salts. In fact, cell salts are often considered “Homeopathic Vitamins,” so they can often complement your homeopathic health regimen.
The human body, if reduced to ash would contain the following 12 cell salts discovered by Schüessler in 1873:
Calcarea phsophoricum Calcarea sulphuricum Ferrum phos Kali muriaticum Kali phosphoric Kali sulphuricum Mag phos Natrum muriaticum Natrum phos Natrum sulphuricum Silica
Cell salts are, in fact, the building blocks of life. Our cells depend on these minerals for basic functioning, and a deficiency in one or another can cause the appearance of bothersome symptoms.
Cell salts are perfect for pregnant women, nursing mothers, children and the elderly. They are known as “homeopathic vitamins” and offer the vital minerals our cells need.
An important thing to remember about cell salts is that potency matters! Cell salts are found in 3x, 9x and 12x potencies only. Also, Cell Salts are never found in “C” potencies, only “X” potencies. Potency, as well as dosing for emergencies, convalescence, and maintenance, is covered in the class Amazing Homeopathic Cell Salts. Taking breaks while on a cell salt regimen is recommended and advice on how to do this can also be found in the class.
So what can cell salts be used for? The list is endless: Colds, flu, infections, rashes, burns, cramps, cavities, brittle hair and nails, stress, fever, dehydration, inflammation, sore throat, digestive disturbances, coughs, headaches, irritability, colic, teething, constipation, rheumatism, insomnia, heartburn, bloating, allergies, congestion, varicose veins, fatigue and so much more!
Let’s look at a couple cell salts and what they specifically address for a better understanding of how they can be used.
Calcium fluoride: This cell salt is useful in conditions where the body hasn’t “bounced back.” Postpartum, when tissues remain chronically relaxed, is an opportunity to try Calc fluor. Other times that this tissue salt may be used is for enlarged glands, prolapse, muscle weakness, hemorrhoids, and cysts. The mental/emotional picture may be that the person is a hard worker motivated by fear of poverty and the need to excel at what they do. In Amazing Cell Salts, we cover the facial features that can be used to help diagnose a need for this cell salt as well.
Silica: Known as the “homeopathic surgeon,” Silica helps the body to push out splinters and foreign objects that do not belong in the body. Silica is great for promoting healthy hair, skin and nails as it stimulates keratin production. When we see brittle nails, infections, constipation, and boils, Silica is indicated. The mental/emotional picture includes the inability to make decisions, need for approval from others, and stubbornness.
Yes, cell salts, like homeopathy, are completely safe for pregnancy. In fact, pregnancy offers the perfect opportunity to use cell salts, as mom and baby’s bodies go through so many changes and require nurturing and support. In Amazing Cell Salts, there is a wonderful protocol shared by Cilla that can be started in the third month of pregnancy. This protocol supports the different systems that baby is developing: Structural, neurological, blood, and mucous membranes.
Did you get your blue eyes from your grandmother? How about your curly hair, or your infectious laugh?
Often, inheritance plays a key role in influencing a person’s state and vitalism as well as these physical details. We all inherit proclivities and predispositions towards certain disease. Often these diseases are ones our parents and grandparents may have had or were susceptible to as well. In homeopathy, these inherited proclivities are known as “Miasms.”
Just like hair and eye color, we also inherit proclivities towards certain disease, known in homeopathy as “Miasms.” Miasmic prescribing mitigates the expression of these proclivities, often reducing the severity of symptoms.
Through miasmic prescribing, homeopaths are able to mitigate the expression of certain genetic inheritances and diseases. Though a person’s genes cannot be altered, the expression of the proclivities carried on these genes can be made less severe or less life threatening.
For example: Those born with Downs Syndrome are often subject to lots of severe respiratory and cardiac symptoms. With constitutional homeopathic treatment, we see a lessening of these symptoms. The vital force has been unencumbered to express itself more freely.
Women treated constitutionally prior to having children diminish the miasmatic influence upon their own vital force, thus offering their offspring freedom from these liabilities.
This is just another area where homeopathy presents a massive opportunity for healing. While science acknowledges the important genetic markers we inherit, homeopathy takes this a step further maintaining that our inheritance also includes aspects of our ancestor’s vital force. In this way, ancestors who may have suffered from scabies may pass on skin issues. Recent scientific genetic research may actually support this claim:
“Genes may only be receivers of information transmitted by the vital force, much like the television is only the receiver of a broadcast transmitted over the airwaves. Thus, just fixing your television won’t improve the quality of the shows you can receive on it, replacing or removing your body parts won’t repair underlying problems with the vital force. And even if you can’t replace your television (your genes) there is still the possibility of improving the quality of the programs it receives (the activity of the vital force.)” From Amy Lansky’s Impossible Cure (p. 104)
Women treated constitutionally prior to having children diminish the miasmatic influence upon their own vital force, thus offering their offspring freedom from these liabilities.
Often miasmic expression can be kept at bay. But under stress or times when the terrain may be disturbed, these expressions often manifest, and a homeopath may augment constitutional treatment to address the miasm that is manifesting.
There are many miasms. In the class Miasms: Painting Health and Emotions, Cilla presents the Cancer, Psoric, Sycotic, Syphlitic and Tubercular Miasms.
When considering miasms, a homeopath looks at the central disturbances and disease manifestations (physical symptoms) as well as the mental-emotional picture. Symptoms that may indicate a Syphlitic Miasm would be alcoholism, depression, suicidal tendencies, mental illnesses, eating disorders, violence, cardiac conditions, birth defects and self-destructive behaviors such as cutting. Often there is also Nocturnal Periodicity: Individuals who are either worse at night or consider themselves Night Owls.
To describe the Syphlitic mental-emotional picture, Cilla offers the case in her Miasm class:
A woman came to her as a client who carried a gun in her purse. She felt she had to protect herself, like others were out to get her, and was very depressed. Upon further observation, it was discovered that she was simply fearful and felt threatened. Syphilinum helped her to move out of this internal state.
Another case involved a small child born with a severe case of Stabismus (crossed-eyes) who was very much helped by Syphilinum.
With homeopathy, there is never a time when the vital force cannot be empowered to promote healing in the body. Miasmic prescribing is simply another tool in the professional homeopath’s tool belt.
