I have been given permission to crosspost the following in its entirety.
David Little is a fantastic homeopath; the best the world has. He follows in the steps of Samuel Hahnemann, but has progressed in his field. He has spent his life dedicated to homeopathy and is in the enviable position of being in possession of Samuel Hahnemann's original works and his Paris Casebooks
His writings are completely factual, so the information he writes regarding vaccinations since the time of Hahnemann is worth reading.
Over the next days I will be continuing on some of the themes I raised
in Hahnemann's Genesis 1. The first subject I will take up is vaccination
in general and then raising conceiving and raising children in particular.
Without healthy, happier children tomorrow will not be a better world. As I
reach later middle age and face old age I know that my work on this earth
will someday be finished. At this stage of life what we leave behind
becomes a more important issue and legacy a more important word. If we have
any real legacy it is what we have done for others. This work starts at
home and then spreads to the society and the entire global village. Today,
I want to speak about how to build a better future with the same passion I
spoke about present and past in Genesis 1.
The idea behind immunizations is based on similar substances in that
the original substance has been modified so that it is not exactly the same
as the natural infection. Hahnemann supported vaccination although his
casebooks show that he sometimes treated the acute side effects of
vaccination. He knew vaccination could cause problems and even suggested
methods for reducing the risk. He felt that this method was homoeopathic
and that other preventative remedies might be found in a similar manner.
Hahnemann observation was that vaccination had reduced the virulency and
epidemic of smallpox. He thought, in his time and place, that the risk
versus benefit ratio was in favor of vaccination. These are the historical
facts so we best not ignore them based on our personal feelings.
It was Wolf and Boenninghausen who first spoke out strongly about the
long term side effects of smallpox vaccination. Then Boenninghausen
introduced Thuja as a curative as well as preventative remedy for the
miasm. This was quickly followed by the use of Variolinum based on Hering's
experiments with nosodes. The smallpox nosode was used with great success
in the USA during epidemics. There is amble documentation on this subject.
The complications associated with the homeopathic campaigns were minimal
and were mostly aggravations caused by the dose and potency. The homeopathic
method seems to have faired better than the orthodox vaccinations. So for
smallpox, at least, we do have some statistical and clinical data that shows
the nosodes work well. There are quite a few promising studies and even a
few laboratory confirmations of immune reactions. Homoeopathic prophylaxis
has worked well in the field over the last 162 years since Hahnemann passed
