Maybe lots of people already know about this, but it was relatively new to me, so I thought I would share.
I had never heard of this before we wanted to travel to Bali and were concerned about malaria.
Well, not really super concerned because it's easily treatable with MMS and usually cured within 24 hours and 2 doses, but anyhow...
A naturopath friend told me about nosodes. There are nosodes available for all sorts of stuff like malaria, yellow fever, dengue fever. I would definitely feel comfortable using them based on the research I have done.
Here's an article to get anybody else started:
Nosodes: The Homeopathic Alternative to Vaccines - by Celeste Yarnall, Ph.D
Plus I love that there are a bunch of websites spring up against them because they are gaining in popularity so quickly. Somebody is really skeered of losing their profits on vaxes.
I have been to Bali, paid for by a certain pharmaceutical company beginning with 'M', no one suggested malaria was a concern, maybe because they didn't have a vaccine?
I'm interested in that too.
I know better than to argue about vaccines in this section... but neither water (nosodes) or bleach (MMS) is a vaccine, so can the problems with them be mentioned, and does this topic really belong in the vaccine section anyway?
I was curious about that so checked the CDC website. Neither Malaria nor Yellow fever is a problem in Bali. Yellow fever vaccine may be required if coming from a region where it is a problem (so, not the US) a they want to prevent it being brought in.
Nosodes are a preventative. I'm not going to play the so-and-so's numbers say this game. To me, it is ridiculous to rely on studies for anything. I studied statistics for my undergraduate work, and usually a study says whatever the people who paid for it want it to say.
If you are looking at including places like Karimunjawa and Moyo in your trip, there is a lot of malaria there. Guess I should've said Indonesia instead of Bali. Jeez.
At any rate, nosodes were recommended to me by a trusted naturopath who recommends them to anyone who wants to travel to such an area. That is good enough for me. If someone doesn't think nosodes are viable or valuable for them, ignore the post !

I have nothing whatsoever against nosodes, if you are concerned about contracting malaria in Indonesia, by all means take nosodes, no harm there. I have been to Indonesia a couple of times besides the trip to Bali, and did not feel it was a concern, that's all. I didn't contract malaria either.
Google Dr. Issac Golden if you are interested in studies on nosodes
