ALTERNATIVES: HOMEOPATHIC NOSODES

Some 52 years before Koch first isolated the tubercle bacillus for the tuberculosis vaccine, nosodes (homeopathic dilutions of the products of the illness in question given orally) were commonly used as just in case measures against a wide variety of diseases.


According to government statistics, the use of these homeopathic vaccines was accompanied by an amazing drop in the incidence of whooping cough, diphtheria, scarlet fever and measles in children. In all groups, the numbers of people of all ages contracting TB, dysentery, typhoid fever and Asiatic cholera plummeted (Gaier, Thorsons Encyclopaedic Dict of Hom, Harper-Collins, London, 1991).The few published studies to have looked at this area suggest that nosodes are effective at preventing specific diseases (Alternatives, WDDTY, February 1995; 5 (11): 9). In one large scale study, more than 18,000 children were successfully protected with a homeopathic remedy (Meningococcinum IICH) against meningitis, with no side effects (BMJ, 1987; 294: 294-6).


Before deciding to use homeopathic prophylaxis you should consider how great the risk is of contracting a particular disease.
