What is Homeoprophylaxis?
Homoeoprophylaxis (“HP”) is a nontoxic method of educating the immune system against infectious and contagious diseases – a system in a class by itself. In use for more than 200 years, the demand for HP is increasing as more and more people are demanding a nontoxic choice when it comes to disease prevention. Nothing will ever be 100%. But the effectiveness of HP is well-documented at about 90% when known exposure to disease has taken place, which makes it quite worthy of consideration.
Through homoeopathic prophylaxis – the energetic medicine of homoeopathy – the body is exposed to a nontoxic energetic form of the disease. About 90% of the time, the body responds appropriately, building its immune system, providing immunity to the disease.
Homoeoprophylaxis is homeopathy, working with the body in a whole, natural way. Studies are now even suggesting that HP may very well also be promoting of health overall.
At the time Edward Jenner was first experimenting with cowpox to prevent smallpox, Dr. Samuel Hahnemann (1755 – 1843), a medically trained doctor from Germany and the founder of Homeopathy, found the homeopathic remedy, Belladonna, worked prophylactically against scarlet fever, and, with it, he stopped an epidemic of this disease. This discovery was so profoundly successful that soon the Prussian King required homeopathically prepared Belladonna to be used nationally against scarlet fever.
In an essay he wrote to share his discovery of a prophylactic use of Belladonna, Hahnemann shared, “Who can deny that the perfect prevention of infection from this devastating scourge, and the discovery of a means whereby this divine aim may be surely attained, would offer infinite advantages over any mode of treatment, be it of the most incomparable kind soever? The remedy capable of maintaining the healthy uninfectable by the miasm of scarlatina, I was so fortunate as to discover…” (“Cure and Prevention of Scarlet Fever”, Samuel Hahnemann, The Lesser Writings; collected and translated by R.E. Dudgeon, MD; 10th impression, 2010; B. Jain Publishers, New Delhi, India, pg 377)
Since Hahnemann’s time, homeoprophylaxis has expanded to world-wide use, with a success rate remaining comparable to any vaccine. Literally, millions have benefited from the use of homeoprophylaxis.
HPWWC, named for the inaugural conference of 2015, Homoeoprophylaxis: A Worldwide Choice, is a place for learning and for outreach. For nonprofessionals (parents and lay-people), you can learn about and access Homeoprophylaxis (HP) for yourself and/or for your family – whether for schools, day care, job-related, travel, or whatever other area you may need this. You will also be able to access practitioners trained in HP to provide this for you. For practitioners already utilizing HP or considering making this part of your practise, HPWWC.org is becoming a place to help you as well. We offer training opportunities in Homeoprophylaxis as well as the opportunity to extend your outreach for this, by registering on this website.
