Go It Alone or Get Support: Why a Practitioner-Supported HP Program Is Better

In my on-going search for ways to enhance and protect my children’s immune systems, I have taken many detours. Eventually, I decided to enroll my children in Cilla’s homeoprophylaxis (HP) program. Because I’m often asked why I chose to do this, I want to share my journey and reasoning.

In 2010, when my oldest was 2, I stumbled upon Cilla’s book. I had already been introduced to homeopathy, and figured since I understood homeopathy, I could use her book to administer the remedies myself. Despite my good intentions, that never happened. The book sat next to my bed, the remedies I needed were in a shopping cart online, never to be ordered. Each time I got the gusto to place my order, I felt overwhelmed with insecurities and questions.

Not being a homeopath myself, I felt discouraged: What if there was a reaction? What if I didn’t stay on schedule? (That was likely, as I discovered I was pregnant with my daughter soon after my initial investigations into HP). I also wasn’t certain I fully understood what I was doing. It became clear that I was really going to need much more education, and confidence to go at it alone. In the meantime, while stammering around, we added two more children to the family, and I was distracted by life enough to put my inquiries on the back burner.

Fast forward to 2018—my children were in public school with a religious exemption. When New York State cut our experience short by axing religious exemptions at the end of that school year, we were faced with a big decision: Vaccinate so the children can attend school, or homeschool. We chose the latter, and that decision led me to pick up the HP conversation again. This time, I decided I wanted the support of a homeopath, and I enrolled my children in Cilla’s program. I immediately knew it was the best choice, and I haven’t regretted it for a moment. Here’s why:

Support: New things are often more surmountable with human to human interaction

When I entered Cilla’s program, not only did I receive an HP kit, I received an education on HP and the immune system. Everyone who enrolls receives a one-on-one session with a certified homeopath. The Real Immunity Team has three board certified homeopaths to choose from: Cilla, Michelle, and Teresa.  How easy it was to be able to ask the questions I had and get answers that made sense, from a real human! Much different than using a book and trying to meander through the process alone.

Courtney’s three children ages 12, 8 and 6. All partake in the Real Immunity HP program.

Another thing received from the program is a video presentation that shares exactly what you need to know to give the HP remedies to your family. With this video, anyone is able to get started using HP—even beginners who know nothing about homeopathy. Most questions are answered in this video, and Cilla’s calm presence makes everything seem simple and easy to follow.

Having a certified homeopath help you is beyond valuable. For instance, you may want to rearrange your schedule to take the Tetanus nosode if you are embarking before summertime when children are much more likely to be running around barefoot. Summer will certainly be a lot easier on me as a parent knowing that my often-barefoot kids have another line of defense against tetanus!

The booklet that Cilla distributes is also helpful, (especially for less organized individuals, like myself). The booklet leads you through the program, offering a place to record the date you administer the remedies, as well as any response that may occur while undergoing the program. It helps you know how many doses to give and what will be the next remedy on your schedule. It really helps you move through the program with ease. Should you have any concerns, you are able to contact your homeopath to get their feedback: It’s such a relief to not have to go at it alone!


Education: It’s much more dynamic to learn from a professional than to try and learn something from a book or website

One of my initial questions was whether or not my kids would be able to get back into school if they went through an HP program. Cilla compassionately shared with me that while vaccines stimulate the humoral immune response, where antibody production occurs, this can cause side effects like inflammatory diseases. She explained that the innate arm of the immune system, often disregarded by many medical professionals and politicians, provides the cell mediated response, which HP addresses.

I learned that antibodies aren’t the gold standard of immunity.

Cilla also shared with me that Dr. Isaac Golden, leading expert in HP, studied 3000 children who underwent HP programs and found that they had fewer illnesses and infections in general. He attributed this to the fact that they received the diseases in an energetic form, thereby gaining all the health benefits of the natural disease with none of the risks.

Our family decided that since we were vested in building and supporting health and wellness that we would definitely partake in the program in order to receive those benefits. With a 91% effective rate with no side effects, it definitely raises many questions as to why many governments don’t recognize HP as a legitimate alternative. (Note many governments, such as India and Cuba do recognize the benefits of HP.) Then again, our same government establishments feel completely at ease offering unhealthy food to our children for lunch every day. Clearly health isn’t the real concern.

What others are saying about joining an HP program:

“To work with a practitioner who was supporting my role as a mom and respecting and encouraging my innate knowledge of my child was a game changer. We’ve been so thrilled to have found Cilla and homeoprophylaxis. My children have not yet completed the whole program, but I do feel that I see their systems growing stronger each month with every dose. I had a friend today comment just how healthy my kids always are! Thank you, Cilla for your message, knowledge, and willingness to devote your life to families like ours, we are so grateful!”   – Sarah J.

“Cilla is a professional in every sense of the word. She has been a delight to work with and is very knowledgeable and so helpful in providing guidance and direction with her programs. I appreciate Cilla’s efforts as she strives to help so many that are seeking for great ways to provide immunity for their families!” – Dr Jeff K.
