Influenzinum CV30 Survey Results

By Homeopathy, Immunization One Comment

View the slideshow presentation of this survey here. (Images below can be viewed more clearly in the slideshow presentation.)

Homeoprophylaxis (HP) is not aimed at treating disease, but instead increases the vitality of the individual, and thus increases innate immunity. In an effort to further explore this safe and natural homeopathic alternative to boosting immunity in defense of contracting illness, I undertook a casual survey based upon self-reporting by recipients of homeoprophylaxis described below.

Objectives

The objectives of this casual observation were to understand how homeoprophylactic influenzinumCV could affect the type, intensity, and duration of symptoms typical of SARS-CoV-2 infections and/or seasonal flu-like illnesses.

Methodology

Methodology included the preparation of vials of influenzinum CV30. They were distributed to the recipients between January 2020 and August 2020. 508 participants then completed a self-administered online survey after administering at least one oral dose of influenzinum CV30. All surveys were completed by the 30th of September 2020, and data was summarized from responses.

Remedy Choice

Selection of the remedy was made in consultation with Dr. Isaac Golden, the world’s leading authority on homeoprophylaxis. Multiple historical strains of influenza plus the inclusion of pneumococcinum to prevent sequelae of respiratory symptoms were determined to be an effective choice. Dr. Golden also recommended that “genus epidemicus” (GE) remedies could be included as determined.

GE remedies are remedies that match the common symptoms in current cases. This can be a moving target. As things mutate, we see different symptoms emerge as more or less prominent, requiring the GE remedies to be adjusted accordingly. The inclusion of GE remedies were included for Cuba and India’s choices for prophylactics, but was not included in InfluenzinumCV. Our preparation was composed of:

Influenza A and B including:

  • A/New Caledonia/20/99(H1N1) virus 30c
  • A/Moscow/10/99(H3N2) virus 30c
  • B/Sichuan/379/99 virus 30c
  • Bacillinum 30c
  • Pneumococcinum 30c

30c potency was chosen to avoid possible aggravations related to any unknown comorbidities, chronic conditions, or suppressive medications being taken by recipients. The directions given to the recipients were to take one dose in a clean mouth, 5 minutes away from any food. They could take one to four doses a month, depending on exposure. An alternate method would be to dissolve a dose in water, stir, and take a teaspoon of water per dose.

Some dosing variation was dependent upon exposure. If known exposure occurred, for instance family members living in the same home, the recommended dose was three times per week. If individuals had pre-existing chronic conditions, it was recommended that they dose in water and only once a month. And if traveling by air or being in large crowds, it was recommended that they dose prior to flying and once returning home.

Survey questions included were age, symptoms, including fever, nasal congestion, headache, body aches, shortness of breath and fatigue. Additionally, a question included indicating the duration of symptoms, either one to three days, four to seven, eight to 10 or more than 10 days. Were they tested for SARS-CoV-2 infections/ And was that negative or positive?

Findings

Findings included 400 of the 508 participants having no symptoms whatsoever. 108 had some symptoms. Of the 108 that had symptoms, 81 of them had symptoms lasting only one to three days. 15 of them had four to seven days, and then 6 had eight to ten days. And six had more than 10 days. (Figure 1.1)

Figure 1.1

 

109 people tested for COVID out of the group and nine tested positive. 100 tested negative, and nine tested positive. Of those nine that tested positive, four of them had no symptoms whatsoever. Three of them had symptoms for one to three days. And two of them had symptoms for eight to 10 days. No one had symptoms for more than 10 days. (Figure 2.1)

Figure 2.1

In the zero to 10-year-old age group, there were 99 respondents with 25 (25%) of them reporting having symptoms. In the 11 to 18-year-old age group, with 63 respondents, nine of them (under 15%) had symptoms. In the 19 to 29-year-old age group, with 42 respondents, 10 of them had some sort of symptoms. In the 30 to 49-year-old age group with 147 respondents. 37 of them had some symptoms. In the 50 to 64-year-old group, with 91 respondents, 18 had symptoms. And in the 65 and over group, with 66 respondents, only 9 had symptoms. We saw the greatest reporting of symptoms in the 30 to 49-year-old group.

Across the entire group of 109 respondents who experienced any symptoms fever was reported a total of 27 times. Nasal congestion was reported 74 times. Headache was reported 71 times, body aches, 47 times, shortness of breath, 16 times and fatigue, 56 times. The most predominant symptoms were nasal congestion and headache amongst the entire group. If we look at the specific symptoms by age, we see that fever was reported most, in the zero to 10-year-old group, possibly indicating the more robust immune response by children.

Headaches were reported predominantly by the 30 to 49 year-old-group. Body aches, also in the 30 to 49-year-olds. Shortness of breath had virtually no reports between zero and 29 years old, with a few reports between ages 30 and 49, with a few more in the 50 to 64-year-old group. Fatigue was seen most in the 30 to 49-year-old group, and we might be able to conclude that they’re parents of young children, so they’re also the busiest age group that’s losing sleep and most active.

Conclusion

In conclusion, the majority of participants (79%) had no symptoms whatsoever. 21% had mild symptoms. Those symptoms were primarily headache and nasal congestion. The duration of the symptoms were predominantly lasting one to three days for 75% of people. The majority of people using influenzinum CV did not test, even if they experienced symptoms. This may indicate that they had no fear, or anxiety, even though they had a few symptoms. The use of InfluenzinumCV seems to have had a positive effect on enhanced immunity, as evidenced by reduced frequency and shorter duration of symptoms, post administration of InfluenzinumCV, and definitely warrants further investigation.

Considerations to include for future research would be a screening for outliers, and comorbidities.  It would also be helpful to gather information about nutritional supplementation being used, positive known exposures to the illness, gender of respondent, and region of the U.S.

So this is the additional information that I mentioned early that played into consideration. First of all, the risks that are associated with influenza vaccines. This was a recent study done in the 2017/18 flu season. Those who received flu vaccine had a 36% increase risk of being susceptible to all Corona viruses.

Addendum

Throughout the world, other various HP methodologies have also been employed.

  • Some individuals used Oscillococcinum, an over-the-counter homeopathic product from Boron made from heats and liver of fowl. It has been effectively used for many years as a basic preventative during annual flu seasons.
  • The government of India recommended using homeopathic Arsenicum album 30c. The Indian government positively endorses the use of homeoprophylaxis and determined that Arsenicum album would be the most helpful prophylactic based upon repertorization of symptoms. Repertorization is a homeopathic method utilizing different rubrics that reflect predominant symptoms, expressed by a specific infectious disease.  (Figure 3.1)

Figure 3.1

  • Cuba created a ‘combination remedy.’ Within their robust department of natural medicine, and the director of epidemiology within the ministry of public health, Johann Perdomo Delgado, stated, “Sublingual drops of the compound PrevenHo-Vir, prevent different diseases, such as influenza, the common cold, dengue, and emerging viral infections such as this one.”
  • Sponsored by the Cuban Department of Natural Traditional Medicine, Ministry of Public Health, the inclusion criteria were: individuals between 18 and 64 without any respiratory symptoms at the time of administration, excluding anyone allergic to any components. They administered this in a diluted liquid form, with five drops diluted in an additional two ounces of drinking water, administered daily for three consecutive days. Another single dose was administered one week later on day 10. The liquid was retained it in their mouth for five seconds, guaranteeing sublingual contact.
  • Free and Healthy Children International recommended using the homeopathic ‘nosode’ (a remedy prepared from exudate of the disease)
  • Lastly, the ‘genus epidemicus,’ was recommended as well.  This is a curative remedy chosen based on associated common symptoms once the illness is contracted and treated. The genus epidemicus remedy that was determined by a number of homeopathic physicians from hospitals in India, was homeopathic Mercurius.

Homeoprophylaxis is a safe and effective method to boost innate immunity in the presence of infectious disease.

When the Shortcut Becomes the Detour

By Homeopathy No Comments

“Short cuts make long delays.”

 J.R.R. Tolkien, The Fellowship of the Ring

I’d like to share with you a story that has become rather commonplace in my practice, one that is an example of an alarming situation many of my homeopathic colleagues face. (I have changed the name of the character in this story to protect her privacy.)

Meet Diane, a 43-year-old woman who came to me about a year ago with a laundry list of symptoms, but worse than that, a laundry list of remedies she has been on (many of which she takes daily) for the past 18 months. Diane’s symptoms, although complex, aren’t as overwhelming and painstaking as the sorting out process that we underwent when she first came to me. Diane’s initial complaints were:
Hypothyroid, hair loss, weight gain, history of yeast infections, digestive complaints, eczema, debilitating depression.

After years of practicing allopathic homeopathy and taking a handful of remedies for her chronic issues, Diane sought constitutional care in hopes of finally resolving her on-going issues.

This is a long list, indeed, but to learn that Diane took an interest in self-studying and prescribing remedies to herself, rather than have her case taken by a certified homeopathy, was even more alarming. When Diane entered my practice, she was on 8 remedies that she self-prescribed herself! Many of these remedies she took twice a day, as her online classes had taught her.

Before we go into the issues that can result from self-prescribing or taking multiple remedies at one time, it is important to note that for acute situations, (ailments and complaints that are short-lasting) homeopathy is often successfully employed by self-taught individuals, and this is generally accepted since detrimental effects are far less likely to occur. Many parents have effectively used homeopathy to address teething, cold and flu symptoms, ear aches and other common acute childhood ailments. However, when it comes to chronic, long-term issues, take caution when gathering information from blogs or online materials and forums; chronic cases are often more complex and require a consult with a certified homeopath.

There are many reasons why classically trained homeopaths recommend against taking more than one remedy at a time. The conundrum in Diane’s case was not so much the symptom picture that was presenting, but the significant amount of energy required to educate her on why taking more than one remedy at a time could potentially delay the healing process. It took several conversations for her to finally grasp that the way she was using homeopathy previously was more of an allopathic approach and didn’t follow the same set of guidelines that classical homeopaths are trained to evaluate cases and progress with.

Let’s examine some of the issues that arise with allopathic homeopathy. For starters, sorting out a case like Diane’s requires patience that most individuals drawn to the practice of multiple remedy taking frankly aren’t often very excited about. The homeopath needs not only to take the case, but to sort out whether any of the remedies being taken are helping or causing issues. It is essential to identify any potential aggravations occurring, as well as any healing crises that may be caused by one of the many remedies.

From Homeopath, George Vithoulkas’ The Science of Homeopathy, “The practice of giving combinations of remedies obviously violates all of the fundamental laws of homeopathy—and common sense as well…Such practice can only create complete chaos, and indeed some of the most pitiable cases in homeopathic practice are those who have undergone years of such chaotic treatment. The defense mechanism of such patients is so disturbed that it is often completely impossible to restore their health to even the level prior to such prescribing, let alone bring about a cure.”

I say all of this because it has become regular practice for some homeopaths to prescribe multiple remedies, or for students of such homeopaths to take matters into their own hands and self-prescribe multiple remedies, only to realize many months into this practice, as Diane did, that they are not making appropriate gains in their healing, or worse, that they are being detrimentally affected. Still others find that they are dependent upon their daily intake of remedies to feel normal, pointing to the remedies acting suppressively.

When enlisting the help of a classical homeopath, it is essential that people who have taken multiple remedies in the past realize that their treatment will look very different compared to what they were used to, as only one remedy will be given at a time. The case will need to be reexamined after the initial remedy prescription and a new remedy is often selected at that time. It is often necessary that a client wait a period of time after going off their multiple-remedy schedule before starting their constitutional remedy.

What is often thought to be the inexpensive and quick route to healing with homeopathy has become something that many are finding is quite the opposite: a painstakingly long route to regaining health that can often require long-term care from a classically trained homeopath. Before you are deluded into allopathic homeopathy, that can have detrimental effects to overall vitality, consider making an appointment with a classical homeopath to determine if homeopathy is right for you.

Selecting Kali Salt Remedies

By Homeopathy 5 Comments

Having a familiarity with the Kali salt remedies is especially helpful when selecting a remedy when there is mucous production involved.

In her class, Kali Salts, Cilla explains some of the keynotes of the Kali personality. She explains that often Kali-types are rigid in their principles, and are strongly family-oriented individuals who tend to suppress their sensations. They often thrive with routines and can be controlling and fearful as well. Often stomach symptoms can be expressed due to stress and suppressed fears.

Knowing the Kali-Constitutional type can help one determine if a Kali-remedy would be helpful in an acute case.

Like many of the mineral remedies, pressure can be a keynote seen when taking the case of a Kali-constitution. Interesting enough, many of the aggravations experienced by Kali types can come up between 2am-4am because this is when their guards are down enough to allow them to be evoked through the subconscious.

Cilla does an analysis of various Kali-types, sharing a description of the Kali-ars, Kali-phos, Kali-brom and Kali-sulph attributes.

This is a great class for those interested in learning more about this interesting mineral constitutional type, as well as the layperson interested in becoming more attuned with selecting remedies to address symptoms related to mucous production, including sinus infections, white or yellow discharges, menstrual discharges, coughs and more.

Relationships During the Pandemic: Taking the 30,000 Foot View

By Homeopathy

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.

We are powerful enough to do this.    

HP Practitioner Training Program

By Homeopathy

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.

To find out about upcoming classes, receive a class outline, or to apply to attend the program, visit this page.

There is a Choice: A Review of Cilla’s HP Book

By Homeopathy, Immunization

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.”

For families interested in finding out if HP is a good fit for them, you can schedule a brief 15 minute appointment with Cilla.

Learn to Think About the Flu Homeopathically

By Cell Salts, Clinical Studies, Homeopathy, Immunization, Infection

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.

How Homeopathy Can Help You

By Homeopathy

Why Homeopathy?

 

 

 

 

 

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.

Overview of Homeopathy’s Benefits:

  • You’ll receive individualized care and undivided attention from a professional homeopathic practitioner.
  • 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.

Intro to Homeopathy: The Perfect Starting Point

By Homeopathy

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.

Inquiring Minds Want to Know: Your HP Questions Answered

By Homeopathy

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.

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.

How can I get started?

The programs and offerings at www.realimmunity.org are easy to understand and all inclusive.  If you’d like to speak with a practitioner first, you can schedule a 15-minute consult with your additional questions.
