Vaccination Risks and Natural Alternatives

Vaccination Risks and Natural Alternatives

I guess the question of vaccination and immunization doesn’t really occur to us until we have children. Certainly, this was the case for me. Now that I have four children it is a very serious question, which I have researched and would like to share with you some of my notes and thoughts.

We are led to believe by the medical dictorates and the media that immunization is a safe, scientific procedure, which protects and safeguards health. However, there is evidence that much immunization is not safe in the short term; that it offers far less protection than might be imagined, and that the long-term effects of certain forms of immunization may constitute a major health hazard.

The argument is that vaccination will provide protection against infectious disease without the disadvantage of suffering its distressing symptoms and possible residual effects.


One of the most common claims made by advocates of routine vaccination is that the procedure is responsible for eliminating common infectious diseases from communities that have been well vaccinated. This argument is not supported by information compiled from official Government figures obtained directly from the Health Departments of the United States, Great Britain, and Australia for the following infectious diseases:

Whooping cough, Measles, Poliomyelitis, Tetanus and Diphtheria. If one where to examine these figures and diagrams, it is quite clear that the deaths from these diseases were virtually eliminated BEFORE vaccination programmes were introduced. The downward trend did continue after the vaccinations were introduced, but the trend was on the down path anyway.

Certainly, it cannot be claimed that vaccination has been responsible for the elimination of infectious diseases, the credit for which must be largely attributed to improved sanitation and waste disposal, personal hygiene and nursing care, and the reduction of severe nutritional diseases in the countries considered.


As one reads the relevant literature on vaccination risks based on scientific research, it is clear that anyone who says vaccination is a totally safe and effective procedure is either a fool or a liar – and probably both. Pharmaceutical lobby groups fall directly into this category of people.

Dr. Coulter and Dr. Fisher have thoroughly and accurately researched and documented the risks of the Triple Antigen vaccine. They list fourteen significant short term side effects of the DPT vaccine, which can also apply to other vaccines too:

1. Skin reactions

2. Fever

3. Vomiting and diarrhoea

4. Cough, runny nose, ear infection

5. High pitched screaming, persistent crying

6. Collapse or shock-like episodes

7. Excessive sleepiness

8. Seizure disorders – convulsions, Epilepsy

9. Infantile spasms

10. Loss of muscle control

11. Inflammation of the brain

12. Blood disorders – Thrombocytopenia, Hemolytic Anaemia

13. Diabetes and Hypoglycaemia

14. Death and Sudden Death Syndrome (SIDS)

In addition to these short-term side effects, Coulter and Fisher list three major areas of possible long term damage, including:

1. severe neurological damage

2. brain damage, learning disabilities, and hyperactivity

3. allergy and hypersensitivity

Possibly the most disturbing aspect of their book is the number of reported case histories where doctors administering vaccines completely ignored patients’ previous reactions to vaccination, in some cases resulting in death. This further reinforces that ultimately the parents are responsible for their children’s health; ignorance is not inductive to good parenting.

Other researchers have shown that children who received the pertussis vaccine were 5.43 times more likely to develop asthma in later years, over twice as likely to have ear infections, and significantly more likely to spend longer periods in hospital than those who had not received the vaccine. Thus, clear evidence is emerging of a long term weakening of the immune system due to vaccination.

Dr. Robert Gallo, the US expert who first identified the AIDS virus, raised the possibility between the spread of AIDS in Central Africa and the World Health Organization’s (WHO) Smallpox vaccination campaign (see HERE for more information). WHO figures show that the greatest spread of the HIV infection coincides with the areas receiving the most intense vaccination programmes. This may also explain why the disease in Africa is more evenly spread between males and females than in the West.

Dr. Archie Kalokerinos and Glenn Dettman, Ph.D. undertook one of the most important pieces of research regarding vaccination programmes, in their work with aboriginal children in Australia. Aboriginal infant death rates had reached an unprecedented level of up to 500 out of every 1,000 babies. The death rates had increased dramatically during the early 1970’s. The areas Minister of Interior called in Dr. Kalokerinos who began to investigate. He discovered that herd immunity, without prior examination, was resulting in babies dying due to being vaccinated when they were severely nutritionally undernourished or had a cold or infection.

Summaries of the long-term side effects are as follows:

1. Severe neurological damage

2. Brain damage

3. Allergy and hypersensitivity

4. General damage to the immune system

5. Slow viruses

6. Genetic abnormalities – “Jumping Gene” phenomenon

7. Viral transference

8. Trigger mechanism for immune system diseases

9. Dynamic (miasmic) changes

I have personally seen a number of parents who brought their children to me with similar problems (ADD, Autism, Autistic symptoms, cognitive difficulties, etc.), reporting a “sudden change” just after vaccination. All these children tested positive on the VEGA bio-dermal screening for “vaccination stress.”


It would be nice to think that vaccinations were 100% effective, but the research shows otherwise. Studies measuring “secondary attack rates” – the percentage of other family members infected as a result of definite exposure to a family member with Whooping Cough showed that the efficacy of the vaccine ranged between 59.6 to 80.5%.

Professor Stewart of Glasgow University, UK, head of Community Medicine, states that in 1974/5, and 1978/9, outbreaks in the UK, and in 1974 in the outbreaks in the USA and Canada, the proportion of children developing whooping cough who had been fully vaccinated was between 30 and 50 per cent.  Dr. Stewart goes on to conclude that the risks of vaccination to new born babies are as great as those of actually catching the disease itself.

In 1993, Japanese health authorities discontinued the use of the MMR vaccine. One reason was that the vaccine was causing Mumps in recipients. Initially, side effects from the vaccine were predicated as 1 in 100-200,000, but in practice, however, reactions were found to be frequent as 1 in 300.

Roberts and others examined an outbreak of Measles and found that the MMR vaccine was not only ineffective, but increased the severity of the disease. “Symptoms were equally common among immunised and non-immunised subjects. However, significantly more immunised boys than non-immunised boys reported fever, rash, joint symptoms and headache.


There are three basic flaws in the theory and practice of vaccination:

1.  The primary cause of disease is not antigenic since not all unvaccinated or previously unexposed people become infected when similarly exposed to an identical antigen. The disease initially results from a sensitivity, which causes inability to cope with invading antigens. This raises the question regarding why some people have natural immunity while others do not. Many other factors are involved in immunity, including genetic characteristics, placental transfer, breastfeeding, as well as individual health, nutritional status, and emotional response to stress.

2.  Injections of antigens do not necessarily produce the same results in all individuals, and exceptions can be fatal. At best, these injections increase toxins in the body, which may cause some of the many side effects associated with vaccination. These side effects are aggravated by the relatively massive doses of antigen administered compared to natural exposure, plus chemicals such as Aluminium Phosphate and Thimersol used in the vaccines, as well as the fact that the injected material enters the bloodstream almost directly, bypassing the outer or primary immunological defences. In addition, the protection given by injected antigens is usually temporary, whereas natural exposure to infectious diseases virus generally produces permanent immunity.

3.  Repeated injections of antigens tend to both sensitise the recipient to the disease and destroy the vitality of the immune system on a number of levels. This has been scientifically established, as noted in references to various medical practitioners and researchers in previous sections. Natural Therapists believe that damage also occurs on the inner, dynamic level from which an individual derives their entire physical and emotional health.


The best position that advocates of routine vaccination can take is that the program offers some protection and that the known side effects (and yet to be demonstrated side effects) are worth the risk. Since this is obviously not an optimum position, the question: “Is there a genuine alternative available?” must be asked. And the answer is a definite YES.

As parents, the best protection you can give your child involves:

1. Ensuring adequate ongoing nutrition for yourselves and your children, including a balanced diet, no more than a moderate alcohol intake, and no smoking.

2. Breastfeeding, where possible, to around nine to twelve months providing an emotionally stable home environment for your children

3. Ensuring safe and effective treatment if an infectious disease is contracted [Dr Shepherd wrote that, during local outbreaks of disease, conventional practitioners would complain that she always had the “easy” cases; her reply was that her method of treatment – Homoeopathy – made her cases appear easy].

4.  Constitutional treatment that will elevate general vitality and immune competence.

If desired, parents may support the above measures with Homoeopathic medicines as preventatives against these infectious diseases.


Vaccines are more toxic than homoeopathic medicines: This point is generally accepted; in fact, many doctors criticize homoeopathic substances because they do not contain any molecules of the original substance used. They say that “nothing” is there, so “nothing” cannot be toxic. Vaccines, however, contain a number of toxic substances. For example, the triple antigen vaccine contains molecules of diseased material modified with formaldehyde together with an adjuvant (usually aluminium phosphate) and a preservative (usually thimersol, a mercury-based chemical).

The vaccine efficacy of 75-95% may be compared to the single measure of effectiveness of the homoeopathic method derived from the 1994 analysis, being 89%, as confirmed by the latest ten-year survey (1997). This figure not only gives a general indication of efficacy, but (more importantly) supports the historical experience with the homoeopathic method over the last 200 years.

Homoeopathy rapidly gained popular acceptance when it proved successful in treating the infectious diseases sweeping through Europe, such as:

1. In 1813, Hahnemann achieved a success rate of 100% in treating 183 Typhus patients; at that time Typhus was considered incurable.

2. Scarlet Fever was effectively both treated and prevented by Hahnemann using the remedy, Belladonna.

3. During the European Cholera epidemics of the mid-1800’s, the death rate was between 54% and 90%, while the rate amongst persons who received Homoeopathic treatment was between 5% and 16%.

4. During the 1918-1920 Influenza (Spanish Flu) epidemic in the United States, the mortality rate was around 30%; the mortality rate among individuals treated Homoeopathically was less than 1%.


We will now examine the programs developed by the Issac Golden over the last ten years, who wrote the excellent and comprehensive book “Vaccination? A Review Of Risks and Alternatives.”  As stressed previously, no program, orthodox or alternative, can be guaranteed 100% effective, but it is essential that we establish a reliable guide to the relative effectiveness of vaccination and homoeoprophylaxis.

It must be emphasised that the methodology of disease prevention and the remedies used in the kit are not new, having been used for nearly 200 years. However, Issac Golden, following extensive research in the Homoeopathic literature, and subsequent personal clinical experience developed the particular programs.


AGE         GIVEN REMEDY            AGE         GIVEN REMEDY


1 month     Pertussin(200)          17 months   Haemophilis*

2 months    Pertussin*              19 months   Parotidinum(200)

4 months    Lathyrus Sativus(200)   20 months   Parotidinum*

5 months    Lathyrus Sativus        22 months   Diphtherinum*

6 months    Haemophilis (M)         24 months   Tetanus Toxin*

7 months    Haemophilis*            26 months   Lathyrus Sativus*

9 months    Diphtherinum(200)       28 months   Haemophilis*

10 months   Diptherinum*            32 months   Pertussin*

11 months   Tetanus Toxin(200)      41 months   Tetanus Toxin*

12 months   Tetanus Toxin*          46 months   Haemophilis*

13 months   Pertussin*              50 months   Diphtherinum*

14 months   Morbillinum(200)        54 months   Morbillinum*

15 months   Morbillinum*            56 months   Lathyrus Sativus*

16 months   Lathyrus Sativus*       60 months   Tetanus Toxin*


* Triple doses to be used

Note: The disease-remedy relationship (including possible substitutions) is as follows:

DISEASE                 NOSODE            SUBSTITUTE REMEDY


Whooping Cough          Pertussin         Cuprum Metallicum

Diphtheria              Diphtherinum      Gelsemium

Measles                 Morbillinum       Pulsatilla

Poliomyelitis           Lathyrus Sativus Lathyrus Sativus

Tetanus                 Tetanus Toxin     Hypericum

Mumps                   Parotidinum       Rhus Tox

Rubella(German Measles) Rubella           Pulsatilla

Hib                     Haemophilis       Arsenicum Album.


A supplementary program has also been developed, which may be used in conjunction with or instead of the basic program.

The reason for using both programs is that, although successful use of the remedies in the basic program has been established, no system of protection can be guarantied 100% effective. In the event of definite exposure to a source of infection, parents may wish to give their child additional protection at that time. These two programs comprise the third Homoeopathic Kit, which was first released in 1993.

Supplementary Program for Protection When Exposed to Infection



Whooping Cough          Pertussin (200)twice weekly for 3 weeks after contact with carrier.

Tetanus                 Three doses of Ledum Palustre (30) daily for 3 days after breakage of skin.

Diphtheria              One dose of Diphtherium (200) weekly for 4-6 weeks during an outbreak of Diphtheria.

Measles                 Morbillinum(200) weekly during an outbreak, for 3 weeks.

Mumps                   Parotidinum(200) weekly during an epidemic or after contact with carrier.

Rubella                 As natural immunity is the most certain, it is better to allow (German Measles) healthy children to acquire this mild disease. If protection is required, the Rubella Nosode (200) or Pulsatilla (30) may be used twice weekly for two weeks.

Haemophilia             Haemophilis (M) every 2 weeks during an outbreak (Hib)


Most of the Homoeopathic medicines listed above are called ‘nosodes’. These are potentised preparations of diseased substances; for example, the nosode Pertussin is the potentised expectoration from a patient with Whooping Cough. However, it is not essential to use Nosodes.

As discussed previously, when a person acquires immunity through natural exposure to a virus, the actual quantity of virus is minute, yet the change is effected on a dynamic level, and subsequently on the physical level. In Homoeopathy, the effect is similar in that changes initially occur on a dynamic level. The Homoeopathic remedy, Pertussin, is the virus potentised to a purely dynamic and non-material degree.

Unlike vaccines, therefore, Homoeopathic preparations copy the processes of Nature, with similar results in practice. Further, it must be stressed that vaccination is not a type of Homoeopathic (as has been suggested by some).

We are using medicines of energy, not crude substances like those used in vaccines. The remedies are selected using the Law of Similars. The ignorance of such attacks is made more obvious considering that Homoeopathic medicine is first derided because ‘nothing is there’, and then criticised as being ‘toxic’. Logical and scientific criticism indeed!

If the reader really wants to get to grips with this complex subject, I will give a few of the references that I have used for this brief newsletter. There are many further details and studies that I recommend the parent or practitioner who truly wants to get to grips with vaccine alternatives to read:

It affects millions of people worldwide, predominantly women. Fibromyalgia is challenging to diagnose and treat due to its complex and multifactorial nature. While conventional medicine can relieve symptoms, a natural approach to managing fibromyalgia may offer a more holistic and individualized solution. This article will explore fibromyalgia, its potential causes, and the natural approaches that promote pain-free living. Understanding Fibromyalgia Fibromyalgia is a chronic pain condition that primarily affects the body's muscles, tendons, and ligaments. Its hallmark symptom is widespread pain, often accompanied by fatigue, sleep disturbances, and cognitive difficulties, commonly called "fibro fog." The exact cause of fibromyalgia remains unknown, but researchers believe it involves a combination of factors, including: Central Sensitization: Fibromyalgia involves central sensitization, a condition where the central nervous system becomes overly sensitive to pain signals, amplifying pain sensations. Neurotransmitter Imbalances: Disruptions in neurotransmitters, such as serotonin and dopamine, may contribute to fibromyalgia symptoms. Genetics: There may be a genetic predisposition to fibromyalgia, with a family history of the condition being a potential risk factor. Physical Trauma and Stress: Physical injuries, infections, or significant emotional stress can trigger or worsen fibromyalgia symptoms. Natural Approaches to Pain-Free Living The natural approach to managing fibromyalgia focuses on improving overall well-being, addressing potential triggers, and reducing pain through non-pharmacological means.

Irritable Bowel Syndrome
August 6, 2023

Understanding Irritable Bowel Syndrome (IBS) IBS is a functional gastrointestinal disorder, meaning there are no structural abnormalities or specific diagnostic markers to identify the condition. Instead, the diagnosis is based on symptoms that fit specific criteria outlined in clinical guidelines. The primary symptoms of IBS include: Abdominal pain or discomfort Bloating and distension Altered bowel habits (constipation, diarrhea, or alternating between the two) Relief of symptoms after bowel movement It's essential to rule out other gastrointestinal conditions with similar symptoms before diagnosing IBS. IBS is often classified into three subtypes based on predominant bowel habits: IBS with constipation (IBS-C), IBS with diarrhea (IBS-D), and mixed IBS (IBS-M). Potential Causes of IBS The exact cause of IBS remains unclear, and it likely involves a combination of factors. Some potential causes and triggers of IBS include: Gut-Brain Axis: The gut-brain axis plays a crucial role in IBS, where communication between the gut and the brain is disrupted, leading to abnormal gut motility and sensitivity. Microbiome Imbalance: An imbalance in the gut microbiome, the vast community of microbes in the intestines, has been linked to IBS symptoms. Food Sensitivities: Some individuals with IBS may have sensitivities to certain foods, such as lactose or gluten, which can trigger symptoms. Stress and Anxiety: Psychological factors, including stress and anxiety, can exacerbate IBS symptoms. Intestinal Inflammation: In some cases, low-grade inflammation in the intestines may contribute to IBS symptoms. Naturopathic Approaches for Managing IBS Naturopathic medicine is a holistic system of healthcare that emphasizes the body's …

Female Infertility

Female Infertility Patient Testimonial - Case 3, Mrs. P, age 48 Female Infertility Medical diagnosis: Mrs. P had suffered from gynaecological problems for longer than 22 years and headaches for more than 10 years. She had seen a total of 5 gynaecologists who tried contraceptive pills, IV hormonal injections to stimulate ovulation, and benign, fibrotic endometrial atrophic polyp with fibrosis, which was surgically removed in 2000 with the suggestion that she have a total hysterectomy that she refused. Six months later she had a D & C with histopathological analysis that found nothing abnormal. Blood hormonal assays showed high levels of testosterone that was probably responsible for her hirsutism in arms and legs. Polycystic ovaries were diagnosed by ultrasound scan in 1999 but no treatment was given for this. The sonography report read: “Both ovaries have multiple (at least 15 on each side) small follicular cysts with diameters not exceeding 5 mm. Her periods were very irregular with cycles ranging from 40-60 days. She also suffered from frequent migraines and chronic fatigue. Holistic diagnosis: Mrs. P came to me not so much for the sterility problem as she was already 47 years old and as they had been trying for over 25 years to have more children, she had given up on any chance of getting pregnant. She was more concerned about her increasing weight, her hirsutism (hair on the body), and headaches that were getting worse and were more and more frequent. Therefore, only a few tests were run and …
