So I was doing some research and I came along a book by Susan Curtis on 'Homeopathic Immunizations.'

Has anyone read this book or had experience with these remedies?? DS is 5 1/2 months old, and we have 2 weeks to decide whether to selective vax or get booted by our ped. The choice is clear, I'm just trying to find another doc that will see us, and a friend of a friend recommended her doc and said he administered these 'homeopathic vax's'.

Any info would help!!

Homepathic vaccines aren't part of classical homeopathy practice or repertoire.

I believe they are an offshoot of non-classical homeopathy, and a very expensive way to make a mother feel they are doing something rather than nothing. As to whether the "something" being done is worth doing, is moot.

I researched this question extensively for my cats, and could find no solid clinical evidence that nosodes work. Because my cats go outside, I ended up getting them the shot (rabies, common and on the rise in cats, 100% fatality), using the nosode before and after the single shot. The cats were much more lively after the shot that time. I would use that protocol again, if I get the cats vaxed.

I don't have experience with nosodes in humans.
