Here are some brief notes form the interview:
Cilla Whatcott holds a B.A. degree from Arizona State University, a diploma from the four year professional program at Northwestern Academy of Homeopathy, Minneapolis, MN and a PhD from Kingdom College. She served as a member of the research faculty at The American Medical College of Homeopathy and currently an instructor at Normandale Community College. She is the co-founder of Free and Healthy Children International, a 501c3 for the education of homeopathic practitioners in homeoprophylaxis.
What is Homeopathy?
A system of medicine that uses elements (plant, animal or mineral) that are natural. The remedies are diluted until no molecules are left. It becomes an energetic medicine. It is annoinented onto pellets.
“The process of serial dilution was developed by Dr Samuel Hahnemann (1755-1843). He found that whilst his medicines were helping people they often produced side effects as many of them were poisonous. To minimise these effects he diluted the medicines into weaker and weaker doses (serial dilution) then, between each stage of dilution, he succussed them, vibrating the vessel containing the dilution to release the energy of the medicine. He found that the higher the potency of the medicine the more it stimulated healing ability.” – The School of Homeopathy
What is Homeoprophylaxis?
A subset of homeopathy… A homeopathic remedy to prevent disease. Has been done for over 200 years.
FDA founded by many including Royal Copeland, M.D. and homeopathic physician. Homeopathic remedies are protected under the FDA umbrella and none have ever been recalled.
Homeoprophylaxis, also called HP, is a gentle way to educate the immune system. The goal of HP is to orally introduce safe, homeopathic versions of diseases in order to naturally stimulate the immune system.
What Cilla’s Doing Now:
Dr. Isaac Golden – Forerunner of the research on Homeoprophylaxis for childhood diseases.
Worldwide Choice – conferences and education for parents and practitioners.
Homeoprophylaxis – You can make a remedy for any infectious disease.
How The immune System Develops Immunity:
Innate vs Adaptive Arm of immune system. They mature together as a baby matures.
TH1 – Innate cellular immunity (constant undercurrent of health – longterm health and immunity)
TH2 – Adaptive/humoral immunity (antibodies that go after the invading agent)
How Do Vaccines Work To Build Immunity?
Vaccines work to produce antibodies – adjuvant excites the immune system and antibodies are produced. Some people are high responders – others are low responders – and a third group are non-responders. They do not produce antibodies. All three of those groups can still catch a disease, so antibodies are not the only indication of immunity.
Front door to immunity is the mucous membrane.
There are all sorts of chemical ingredients in vaccines. Concept of introducing a disease agent may have been fine, but the additional ingredients in vaccines have added additional complications and infectious agents from the animal proteins.
One disease introduced at a time so the body has time to recognize and resolve that disease.
Compatible with nature. This is how our bodies naturally encounter infectious agents.
Eliminating and overcoming disease is not really possible. We need to learn how to live in concert with these infectious diseases.
When the child takes the pellet – there is a small immune response like a runny nose.
Research – Studies:
Cuba: Leptosporosis. Vaccine annually. 2.3 million treated with Homeoprophylaxis – incidence dropped significantly that year in that region, while it went up in other regions where HP wasn’t used. Learn more.
India: HP is accepted as a substitute for vaccines because it was so successful
Brazil – Meningitis – 95% effective rate using HP. Learn more.
Isaac Golden Study with 3,000 children. Three groups: unvaccinated, vaccinated and HP. HP for childhood diseases on typical schedule. 90% effective rate. These children had more long term robust health. Learn more.
Is HP Right For You?
Not recognized as an accepted alternative to vaccines in any U.S. state. You must get the remedies from a trained practitioner.
Why Is HP A Good Alternative?
- Because you get all of the benefits of disease without the risks. Dr. Golden’s study showed that Children who were exposed energetically to the disease build stronger long term immunity.
- A good solution for immunocompromised individuals who cannot be vaccinated and cannot be around those who have been vaccinated with a live virus.
Other Applications of HP?
There are no required travel vaccines other than yellow fever. You can do HP prior to travel to protect yourself.
Short Term Epidemics and Childhood Diseases
