I know that cases of malaria in the western world are rising because of travellers only using homeopathics when travelling, believing themselves to be safe they get sloppy with other measures. And before the flaming starts, no I´m not pro-vax, I just think that if you´re not gonna vax conventionally, don´t kid yourself that you´re immune. And whilst I´m on the topic, surely homeopathic vax should be provable - either you have antibodies or you don´t? And if they work why aren´t they used for everything, not just currently conventionally vaxed disease? I must admit I´m in the realms of lack of knowledge here - but presumably there is no theroretical reason why homeopathic vaccines for cancer, AIDS etc couldn´t be produced. IMO homeopathic vax is utopian, having your cake and eating it, too good to be true. I wish that the world were like that.
They have, actually. There is a nosode made from cancer...it's called carcinosum. You are also right. There is no such thing as homeopathic vaccinations. Nosodes are NOT vaccines. They are simple remedies made from diseases. They wouldn't even necessarily be the simillimum for *you* should you get that disease. I know one person who takes carcinosum as a constitutional remedy.
No classical homeopath would EVER offer these nosodes as a prophylactic vaccine. That is a naturopath using them incorrectly. It drives me absolutely insane and I've posted this before in the vaccine forum. It's just not how it works. Homeopathy cannot be used prophylactically, period.
My mother has leukemia as I've stated. Her remedy is not homeopathic leukemia, her constitutional is drosera. That is what softened the nodes. You match the symptoms, not the disease. My friend taking the cancer nosode does not have cancer. My son's constitutional is the nosode medhorrinum. It's made from gonorrhea. He doesn't have gonorhhea, however the symptoms he does have are the same as those that are produced by the infection. This is the remedy that has stopped his reactions. By the way, others don't.
We use homeopathy because we don't vaccinate....we do not vaccinate with homeopathy. You do have a lack of knowledge here, but it's totally understandable. There are many people that buy into this very false idea. It is absolutely not valid.
