I've seen people commenting in other threads/groups about homeopathic vaccines/nosodes. I haven't been able to find tons of research about them, anyone else heard of them? Do people who don't vax use them? or do they consider them prophylactic and not useful?

Isn't that just a placebo injection - homeopathy being substances so watered down that not even a single molecule of the so called active ingredient remains?

I have not heard of them being used, but these days nothing would surprise me.

prosciencemum, IRC, I have told you before that homeopathic nosodes are not administered via injection, ergo they are not placebo injections. It was nice of you to reply to this post which appears was ignored, but......

We delayed vax so not quite the same thing but no, we would not use homeopathic alternatives. It seems that there is some evidence for homeopathy in the treatment of certain conditions but I have seen no evidence that it is an effective alternative to mainstream vaccination.

If that is what you choose to believe, fair enough. But is only your opinion, based on the limited amount of information you have chosen to accept as real.

I actually taught homeopathy in a Naturopathic University. They are amazing when you find the right remedy for a person. We use them extensively in Midwifery. However, nosodes are not actually classical homeopathy. Homeopathy is meant to stimulate the body to heal itself, not cause an immunogenic response like a vaccine. I personally wouldn't use nosodes like vaccines (give them on a schedule to a well child.). I would however give a targeted nosode to a child who was sick with that illness. (Though it's almost impossible to obtain them without a medical license.) I hope that makes sense. I'm sorry people are so skeptical about homeopathy.

Well of course you are, you at least partly make a living on people not thinking too hard about the theory of homeopathy and how those remedies are made!

My cat was teetering on the verge of death (extremely lethargic, shallow, slow breathing). I sent her records over to a holistic vet with a strong knowledge of homeopathy, and had a phone consult in the afternoon. That evening, I picked up two homeopathic a and some flower essences. I paid $75 (we don't need to talk about how much I paid the other vets. Add a couple zeros.) I gave her a dose as soon as we were home, and by morning she was walking around and eating. Ho-lee CRAP. She hadn't moved in days. She was being kept alive by sub q fluid injections for the last couple weeks. A couple days before, she vomited blood. As soon as we tried homeopathy she made am immediate recovery. No one will ever convince me that was a coincidence. Consulting with an experienced professional is necessary for that kind of dramatic result, course.

Well, I imagine that someone who is skeptical of midwifery could say the same about you. Is this productive? Does it further discussion? What's your point?

My point is homeopaths are frauds. Homeopathic remedies are sugar pills. And when people tell me that their sugar pills are curing them of illnesses, I am really not inclined to trust their judgment on things like vaccine reactions they claim to have witnessed. The human brain tries to find connections and patterns, even when they do not exist, and homeopathy, as well as say, "treating" viral illnesses with antibiotics, are proof.

This in my opinion is an example of saying something scientific sounding to make it sound like it works.

Water does not remember substances which have been removed from it so thoroughly not even a single molecule remains. There are no vibrations. it's just water.

Sometimes people (or cats) get better with no treatment. The placebo effect is also real and documented.

I am a parent who has experience with homeopathic immunization. They are not injected. They are ingested. My child cannot have vaccines. So we use homeopathic immunization. I cannot tell you if they work or not. I don't have an opinion so far. It was our only option at this time so we figured why not. It was not expensive. I do not view them the same as vaccines. I believe it's possible they may have an effect but to what degree I don't know. I base that opinion on things I have read but I do not put a lot of faith in it for the time being. More research would make me form more of an opinion.

You seem to state the above as FACT. It is not, it is your OPINION.

 

Do you not believe in quantum physics? Is the human body merely a biological machine or is it more than that?

Katie, all I am saying is your point of perception is so limited, by the medical model, indeed by the five senses in general, that you are not in a position to look beyond that, so therefore all you are expressing is YOUR opinion of what is and isn't possible. It certainly is a matter of belief, all our choices in healthcare are based on belief systems.

 

ETA: watch the video I posted above, dare you too, they discuss quantum science and homeopathics towards the end

This is a gross statement. I'm very offended by it. I don't make a living off of homeopathy at all. I taught the course out of love for my profession, I barely got paid. I have seen how well homeopathy works in midwifery care and I wanted to share my knowledge and experience with students. Wow, would you be so rude to your own midwife (If you use one?). Most trust and use homeopathy in conjunction with herbs and also allopathic meds.


I don't know why this is posting out of order...

I don't tend to get very bothered by the vaccination debate in general, but this time I'm pissed off. Just because you don't understand something doesn't mean it doesn't work! Homeopathy has been used for a long time. If you go into a pharmacy in many European countries, the homeopathy is right there next to the meds OTC. I'm sorry you want to be close minded, but just because you don't understand how it works doesn't mean it can't work. That feels really ignorant. I don't understand how something like...I don't know...combustion engines work. Even if I read about them, it makes no sense to me. But I'm not going to then deny they work just because I don't understand!

I'm done here. I've had enough sanctimonious negativity to last a lifetime.

Homeopathy has been used for a long time. If you go into a pharmacy in many European countries, the homeopathy is right there next to the meds OTC. I'm sorry you want to be close minded, but just because you don't understand how it works doesn't mean it can't work. That feels really ignorant. I don't understand how something like...I don't know...combustion engines work. Even if I read about them, it makes no sense to me. But I'm not going to then deny they work just because I don't understand!

 

They have certainly worked for my dd, my pets and me. I often wonder if science is just not advanced enough to figure it all out yet.

 

I got my introduction to alternative health remedies through homeopathy, and there's almost a direct line that can be drawn from my interest in and results with homeopathy to my desire to stay healthy without taking pharmaceutical products and vaccines. 

 

In my late teens to early 20s I suffered from chronic urinary tract infections. I had been raised on the SAD and conventional medicine, so for years I would go through the merry-go-round of getting a UTI, going to a doctor, getting a prescription for antibiotics and a painkiller, have the UTI go away, rinse and repeat every six to eight months.

 

One day during the middle of this pharma-hell cycle I told my roommate about it, and she suggested I try the homeopathic remedy Cantharis, which she had in her medicine cabinet because she used to get UTIs too. I had absolutely zero clue about homeopathy but figured I had nothing to lose by trying these sugar tablets. Well lo and behold, I got immediate relief! The problem was completely gone within a matter of days (and I mean gone, never to return). I was ASTOUNDED. 

 

Since then, if I find the right remedy for my problem, I get the same result. Who knows how much time, money, and sanity I've saved from using homeopathy. I also literally kept one of my cats from death's door for years by using a combination of homeopathy, herbs, and supplements, when the vet said she only had a month to live and would need daily saline solution injections for her supposedly failing kidneys. Nothing of the sort happened. If pets can benefit from "just a placebo effect" and avoid dying, that's perfectly fine by me. ;-)
