The publication of Whatcott’s second book on homeoprophylaxis couldn’t be better timed. This book offers an alternative to vaccines at a time when parents who refuse vaccination find themselves vilified and exemptions are under attack across the country. It is critical that those of us who object to vaccines have a choice about how to protect ourselves and our families against disease.
All alternative health practitioners should read this book—and re-read it. Only when committed practitioners like Whatcott lead the way will we break free of the black-and-white paradigm of all or nothing when it comes to vaccination. By offering a viable third way to obtain immunity, we can end the demonization of parents who choose not to be part of the herd.
As a Weston Price devotee, I believe in building immunity with the body’s own resources and abilities. Just like plants, the “soil” our bodies grow in must be healthy to make them healthy. Our own soil is created with nutrients, good water, love, sunshine and by saying “no thanks” to processed foods and toxins. With this mindset, we think twice about so many modern-day interventions, including vaccines. Our family decided vaccines did not fit our approach.
So few in North America realize homeopathy is successfully creating immunity around the globe. Government health departments worldwide use HP, even in the face of epidemics. This is a tried-and-true method, first developed by the founder of homeopathy, Samuel Hahnemann, over two hundred years ago.
There is a Choice: Homeoprophylaxis—An Appeal to Mothers begins with a foreword by Dr. Isacc Golden, PhD, ND, BEC (HON), an Australian health practitioner who for the last two decades has implemented HP with his patients and recorded the results. Whatcott devotes a whole chapter of her book to Dr. Golden, and accords him pioneer status, inasmuch as he is the first in the world to offer HP as an alternative to the government-recommended vaccine schedule.
Whatcott is an adoptive mother; her firsthand experience with vaccine injury propelled her to discover the problems inherent in our current medical paradigm, and to seek answers. Her book begins with her personal journey then moves on to discuss the “big business” of vaccines and their harms and risks.
The most revelatory aspect of her book is the global perspective the author offers on the homeopathic option. In her chapter on historical evidence, she quotes from a World Health Organization document which states that homeopathy is the second most utilized system of health care in the world. She goes on to report on the many success stories throughout history where HP was effectively used to protect large populations from numerous diseases. Whooping cough, flu, polio, diphtheria are among them.
Whatcott explains how homeoprophylaxis works with ease. She details how to use HP in lieu of the allopathic regime. Thus, she equips us with a new way to deal with the controversy surrounding vaccines.
Whatcott is the organizer of a conference where experts from around the world will share their positive findings of HP for protection against disease (HPWorldWideChoice.com).
