Schools should have the right to refuse access to pupils who have not had the MMR jab, a leading scientist has said.

Biologist Dr Craig Venter said that vaccinations should be made compulsory for children who wish to attend school and benefit from the NHS.

His statement comes after health officials have launched a new programme to help stem the measles outbreak in South Wales and stop it spreading more widely across the UK.

Dr Venter was the first scientist to successfully sequence the human genome as well as create a cell with an artificial genome.

‘People think they’re making individual decisions for themselves and their family not to get vaccinated,’ Dr Venter told The Times. ‘It’s not just an individual choice, you’re a hazard to society.’

He said that unvaccinated individuals are putting the population at risk.

The number of people infected with the virus in Swansea in now approaching 900.

The city has been left especially vulnerable to measles since the 90s, when a local newspaper campaigned against the MMR vaccine.

There are now concerns the outbreak could spread to London.

David Salisbury, director of immunisation at the Department of Health said: ‘What happened and continues to happen in Swansea could happen anywhere in England.

‘I worry about London. It’s a fast moving group of people, with new families coming in and families moving out. It is harder to track immunisation status.
Historically there is also a legacy of poorer immunisation.’

Health officials announced today that at least a million children and teenagers are to be vaccinated against measles in an attempt to stop expected outbreaks in England.

Some will never have had a jab, while others have only had the first of two doses of the measles, mumps and rubella (MMR) vaccine.

Dr Venter’s comments came after the government’s decision to launch a £20million vaccination scheme across the country

Many of those affected are teenagers who missed out on vaccination in the late 1990s and early 2000s when parents were concerned about a link between MMR and autism that has since been discredited.

Dr Venter also warned that low vaccination rates raised the prospect of circulating infections mutating into new forms. This could lead to current vaccines no longer offering protection, and putting the entire population at risk.

‘Strains that could not develop in a population that was vaccinated could mutate and affect everybody whether they have been vaccinated or not,” he added.

MMR jabs drive at…

The Department of Health said increased vaccine level were proof that Dr Venter’s proposal was unnecessary, arguing that it risked alienating parents.

However Dr Venter’s call for a mandatory vaccination was supported by Rino Rappuoli, global head of vaccines research at Novartis Vaccines and Diagnostics.

The two scientists were speaking yesterday at a House of Commons event to raise the profile of the first approved vaccine for Meningitis B, which they have jointly developed.

    “Diet, injections, and injunctions will combine, from a very early age, to produce the sort of character and the sort of beliefs that the authorities consider desirable, and any serious criticism of the powers that be will become psychologically impossible. Even if all are miserable, all will believe themselves happy, because the government will tell them that they are so.” -Bertrand Russell, The Impact of Science on Society p50, 1953

    The Impact of Science on Society by Bertrand Russell

  • theunhivedmind

    The facts of the matter is there is an agenda to get rid of as many poisonous MMR jabs as possible. This will be to make up for the profits lost due to the truth from Dr Andrew Wakefield getting out a few years ago. Nothing more than big pharma (The Worshipful Company of Apothecaries) out for their pockets and population control. Notice how they turn on even their own poisons of old (single measles jab) to suit their current agendas.

    People sit down, relax and use common sense. Ask yourself why anyone unvaccinated could pose a threat to vaccinated people if the vaccines are so effective and this great protection as claimed? This is nothing more than a gatekeepering effect to demonize the intelligence trying to bring around collectivism in a dumbed down society lured into any unsafe practice by the untrustworthy Government and their agendas. Please read Bertrand Russell’s book ‘The Impact of Science on Society’, to learn what the real agenda is.

    This Dr Venter is a dangerous quack who should be locked up for harming children and increasing vaccine injuries. If the truth is known the children would be much better off out of the school system. The schools today are there just to indoctrinate children into collectivism to be World Government. There is no real education anymore, that is long gone and as outcome-based education comes into play this will be even worse. So fine stop the children from being programmed into being homosexuals and god knows what today. Totally sickening!

    Utilize homoeopathic preparations, Pulsatilla and Sulphur to help deal properly with measles. Do not believe the hype about measles. When I was young we all had measles and we were all fine. Many parents would have measles parties. I had measles and I am alive so what does that tell you? How many people have died of measles in this supposed outbreak? Is it just one adult which has not even been proven yet? You have more chance of dying from a bee sting than you do of suffering death from this over-hyped measles event pushed by alarmists to aid vaccine profits and controls.

    -= The Unhived Mind

    Homoeopathics for treating Measles:

    ACONITUM: Useful at the beginning stages of measles, these children have a high fever, a dry barking cough, and red conjunctiva (“pink eye”). Their skin burns and itches, and they feel restless, anxious, and frightened. They toss and turn.

    Apis: In these cases the rash begins but fails to develop fully, and soon disappears, though the child doesn’t feel completely well. Their itching is worse by warmth, and their face and eyelids are puffy.

    BELLADONNA: This remedy is often useful at the beginning stages of the measles when there is sudden onset of a high fever, reddened face, and throbbing headache. They tend to be drowsy, a little delirious, and have some difficulty falling or staying asleep. Despite the fever, they are not very thirsty.

    Bryonia: In these cases the skin eruptions from the measles are delayed. The children have a hard, dry cough and no expectoration. Any motion causes pain. They may experience some mild delirium: the child “wants to go home” even though they are at home.

    Euphrasia: These children have a fever and rash as well as acrid tearing of the eyes and a bland nasal discharge. They become sensitive to light. They have a cough, but only during the day.

    Gelsemium: For these children the onset of symptoms is slow. They have a fever with great weakness and a sense of heaviness, both of the whole body and specifically the eyelids. They are without thirst.

    Kali bic: These children have ropy, stringy discharges from the nose and burning and tearing of the eyes. Their salivary glands are noticeably swollen, and they may experience stitching pains from the ear into the head and neck.

    PULSATILLA: These children experience a mild case of the measles. Their fever is not high, and their symptoms are not too painful. They will, however, have profuse tearing from the eyes and a nasal discharge. They also have a dry cough at night which becomes loose in the daytime. They may have ear inflammation. Although they have a dry mouth, they are without thirst.

    Sulphur: Children with the measles who need this medicine have a purplish appearance. Their itching is aggravated by scratching They have reddened mucous membranes and a great thirst. Their cough and diarrhea are at their worst in the morning.

    The Science of Vaccine Damage

    Catherine O’Driscoll
    Hpathy Ezine, February, 2013 | February 11, 2013

    A must read for anyone contemplating vaccination of their dog, cat,…. or anyone they love.

    A team at Purdue University School of Veterinary Medicine conducted several studies 1,2 to determine if vaccines can cause changes in the immune system of dogs that might lead to life-threatening immune-mediated diseases. They obviously conducted this research because concern already existed. It was sponsored by the Haywood Foundation which itself was looking for evidence that such changes in the human immune system might also be vaccine induced. It found the evidence.

    The vaccinated, but not the non-vaccinated dogs in the Purdue studies, developed autoantibodies to many of their own biochemicals, including fibronectin, laminin, DNA, albumin, cytochrome C, cardiolipin and collagen.

    This means that the vaccinated dogs —but not the non-vaccinated dogs—were attacking their own fibronectin, which is involved in tissue repair, cell multiplication and growth, and differentiation between tissues and organs in a living organism.

    The vaccinated Purdue dogs also developed autoantibodies to laminin, which is involved in many cellular activities including the adhesion, spreading, differentiation, proliferation and movement of cells. Vaccines thus appear to be capable of removing the natural intelligence of cells.

    Autoantibodies to cardiolipin are frequently found in patients with the serious disease systemic lupus erythematosus and also in individuals with other autoimmune diseases. The presence of elevated anti-cardiolipin antibodies is significantly associated with clots within the heart or blood vessels, in poor blood clotting, haemorrhage, bleeding into the skin, foetal loss and neurological conditions.

    The Purdue studies also found that vaccinated dogs were developing autoantibodies to their own collagen. About one quarter of all the protein in the body is collagen. Collagen provides struc­ture to our bodies, protecting and supporting the softer tissues and connecting them with the skeleton. It is no wonder that Canine Health Concern’s 1997 study of 4,000 dogs showed a high number of dogs developing mobility problems shortly after they were vaccinated (noted in my 1997 book,What Vets Don’t Tell You About Vaccines).

    Perhaps most worryingly, the Purdue studies found that the vaccinated dogs had developed autoantibodies to their own DNA. Did the alarm bells sound? Did the scientific community call a halt to the vaccination program? No. Instead, they stuck their fingers in the air, saying more research is needed to ascertain whether vaccines can cause genetic damage. Meanwhile, the study dogs were found good homes, but no long-term follow-up has been conducted.

    At around the same time, the American Veterinary Medical Association (AVMA) Vaccine-Associated Feline Sarcoma Task Force initiated several studies to find out why 20,000 cats each year in the USA develop terminal cancer at their vaccine injection sites.3 The fact that cats can get vaccine-induced cancer has been acknowledged by veterinary bodies around the world, and even the British Government acknowledged it through its Working Group charged with the task of looking into canine and feline vaccines4 following pressure from Canine Health Concern. What do you imagine was the advice of the AVMA Task Force, veterinary bodies and governments? “Carry on vacci­nating until we find out why vaccines are killing cats, and which cats are most likely to die.”

    In America, in an attempt to mitigate the problem, they’re vac­cinating cats in the tail or leg so they can amputate when cancer appears. Great advice if it’s not your cat amongst the hundreds of thousands on the “oops” list.

    But other species are okay—right? Wrong. In August 2003, the Journal of Veterinary Medicine carried an Italian study which showed that dogs also develop vaccine-induced cancers at their injection sites.5 We already know that vaccine-site cancer is a possible sequel to human vaccines, too, since the Salk polio vac­cine was said to carry a monkey retrovirus (from cultivating the vaccine on monkey organs) that produces inheritable cancer. The monkey retrovirus SV40 keeps turning up in human cancer sites.

    It is also widely acknowledged that vaccines can cause a fast-acting, usually fatal, disease called autoimmune haemolytic anaemia (AIHA). Without treatment, and frequently with treat­ment, individuals can die in agony within a matter of days. Merck, itself a multinational vaccine manufacturer, states in The Merck Manual of Diagnosis and Therapy that autoimmune haemolytic anaemia may be caused by modified live-virus vaccines, as do Tizard’s Veterinary Immunology (4th edition) and the Journal of Veterinary Internal Medicine.6 The British Government’s Working Group, despite being staffed by vaccine-industry consultants who say they are independent, also acknowledged this fact. However, no one warns the pet owners before their animals are subjected to an unnecessary booster, and very few owners are told why after their pets die of AIHA.

    A Wide Range of Vaccine-induced Diseases

    We also found some worrying correlations between vaccine events and the onset of arthritis in our 1997 survey. Our concerns were compounded by research in the human field.

    The New England Journal of Medicine, for example, reported that it is possible to isolate the rubella virus from affected joints in children vaccinated against rubella. It also told of the isolation of viruses from the peripheral blood of women with prolonged arthritis following vaccination.7

    Then, in 2000, CHC’s findings were confirmed by research which showed that polyarthritis and other diseases like amyloidosis, which affects organs in dogs, were linked to the combined vaccine given to dogs.8

    There is a huge body of research, despite the paucity of funding from the vaccine industry, to confirm that vaccines can cause a wide range of brain and central nervous system damage. Merck itself states in its Manual that vaccines (i.e., its own products) can cause encephalitis: brain inflammation/damage. In some cases, encephalitis involves lesions in the brain and throughout the central nervous system. Merck states that “examples are the encephalitides following measles, chickenpox, rubella, smallpox vaccination, vaccinia, and many other less well defined viral infections”.

    When the dog owners who took part in the CHC survey reported that their dogs developed short attention spans, 73.1% of the dogs did so within three months of a vaccine event. The same percentage of dogs was diagnosed with epilepsy within three months of a shot (but usually within days). We also found that 72.5% of dogs that were considered by their owners to be nervous and of a worrying disposition, first exhibited these traits within the three-month post-vaccination period.

    I would like to add for the sake of Oliver, my friend who suffered from paralysed rear legs and death shortly after a vaccine shot, that “paresis” is listed in Merck’s Manual as a symptom of encephalitis. This is defined as muscular weakness of a neural (brain) origin which involves partial or incomplete paralysis, resulting from lesions at any level of the descending pathway from the brain. Hind limb paralysis is one of the potential consequences. Encephalitis, incidentally, is a disease that can manifest across the scale from mild to severe and can also cause sudden death.

    Organ failure must also be suspected when it occurs shortly after a vaccine event. Dr Larry Glickman, who spearheaded the Purdue research into post-vaccination biochemical changes in dogs, wrote in a letter to Cavalier Spaniel breeder Bet Hargreaves:

    “Our ongoing studies of dogs show that following routine vaccination, there is a significant rise in the level of antibodies dogs produce against their own tissues. Some of these antibodies have been shown to target the thyroid gland, connective tissue such as that found in the valves of the heart, red blood cells, DNA, etc. I do believe that the heart conditions in Cavalier King Charles Spaniels could be the end result of repeated immunisations by vaccines containing tissue culture contaminants that cause a pro­gressive immune response directed at connective tissue in the heart valves. The clinical manifestations would be more pro­nounced in dogs that have a genetic predisposition [although] the findings should be generally applicable to all dogs regardless of their breed.”

    I must mention here that Dr Glickman believes that vaccines are a necessary evil, but that safer vaccines need to be developed.

    Meanwhile, please join the queue to place your dog, cat, horse and child on the Russian roulette wheel because a scientist says you should.

    Vaccines Stimulate an Inflammatory Response

    The word “allergy” is synonymous with “sensitivity” and “inflammation”. It should, by rights, also be synonymous with the word “vaccination”. This is what vaccines do: they sensitise (render allergic) an individual in the process of forcing them to develop antibodies to fight a disease threat. In other words, as is acknowledged and accepted, as part of the vaccine process the body will respond with inflammation. This may be apparently temporary or it may be longstanding.

    Holistic doctors and veterinarians have known this for at least 100 years. They talk about a wide range of inflammatory or “-itis” diseases which arise shortly after a vaccine event. Vaccines, in fact, plunge many individuals into an allergic state. Again, this is a disorder that ranges from mild all the way through to the suddenly fatal. Anaphylactic shock is the culmination: it’s where an individual has a massive allergic reaction to a vaccine and will die within minutes if adrenaline or its equivalent is not administered.

    There are some individuals who are genetically not well placed to withstand the vaccine challenge. These are the people (and animals are “people”, too) who have inherited faulty B and T cell function. B and T cells are components within the immune sys­tem which identify foreign invaders and destroy them, and hold the invader in memory so that they cannot cause future harm. However, where inflammatory responses are concerned, the immune system overreacts and causes unwanted effects such as allergies and other inflammatory conditions.

    Merck warns in its Manual that patients with, or from families with, B and/or T cell immunodeficiencies should not receive live-virus vaccines due to the risk of severe or fatal infection. Elsewhere, it lists features of B and T cell immunodeficiencies as food allergies, inhalant allergies, eczema, dermatitis, neurological deterioration and heart disease. To translate, people with these conditions can die if they receive live-virus vaccines. Their immune systems are simply not competent enough to guarantee a healthy reaction to the viral assault from modified live-virus vaccines.

    Modified live-virus (MLV) vaccines replicate in the patient until an immune response is provoked. If a defence isn’t stimulated, then the vaccine continues to replicate until it gives the patient the very disease it was intending to prevent.

    Alternatively, a deranged immune response will lead to inflammatory conditions such as arthritis, pancreatitis, colitis, encephalitis and any number of autoimmune diseases such as cancer and leukaemia, where the body attacks its own cells.

    A new theory, stumbled upon by Open University student Gary Smith, explains what holistic practitioners have been saying for a very long time. Here is what a few of the holistic vets have said in relation to their patients:

    Dr Jean Dodds: “Many veterinarians trace the present problems with allergic and immunologic diseases to the introduction of MLV vaccines…”9

    Christina Chambreau, DVM: “Routine vaccinations are probably the worst thing that we do for our animals. They cause all types of illnesses, but not directly to where we would relate them definitely to be caused by the vaccine.”10

    Martin Goldstein, DVM: “I think that vaccines…are leading killers of dogs and cats in America today.””

    Dr Charles E. Loops, DVM: “Homoeopathic veterinarians and other holistic practitioners have maintained for some time that vaccinations do more harm than they provide benefits.”12

    Mike Kohn, DVM: “In response to this [vaccine] violation, there have been increased autoimmune diseases (allergies being one component), epilepsy, neoplasia [tumours], as well as behavioural problems in small animals.”13

    A Theory on Inflammation

    Gary Smith explains what observant healthcare practitioners have been saying for a very long time, but perhaps they’ve not understood why their observations led them to say it. His theory, incidentally, is causing a huge stir within the inner scientific sanctum. Some believe that his theory could lead to a cure for many diseases including cancer. For me, it explains why the vaccine process is inherently questionable.

    Gary was learning about inflammation as part of his studies when he struck upon a theory so extraordinary that it could have implications for the treatment of almost every inflammatory disease—including Alzheimer’s, Parkinson’s, rheumatoid arthritis and even HIV and AIDS.

    Gary’s theory questions the received wisdom that when a person gets ill, the inflammation that occurs around the infected area helps it to heal. He claims that, in reality, inflammation prevents the body from recognising a foreign substance and therefore serves as a hiding place for invaders. The inflammation occurs when at-risk cells produce receptors called All (known as angiotensin II type I receptors). He says that while At1 has a balancing receptor, At2, which is supposed to switch off the inflammation, in most diseases this does not happen.

    “Cancer has been described as the wound that never heals,” he says. “All successful cancers are surrounded by inflammation. Commonly this is thought to be the body’s reaction to try to fight the cancer, but this is not the case.

    “The inflammation is not the body trying to fight the infection. It is actually the virus or bacteria deliberately causing inflammation in order to hide from the immune system [author’s emphasis].”14

    If Gary is right, then the inflammatory process so commonly stimulated by vaccines is not, as hitherto assumed, a necessarily acceptable sign. Instead, it could be a sign that the viral or bacterial component, or the adjuvant (which, containing foreign protein, is seen as an invader by the immune system), in the vaccine is winning by stealth.

    If Gary is correct in believing that the inflammatory response is not protective but a sign that invasion is taking place under cover of darkness, vaccines are certainly not the friends we thought they were. They are undercover assassins working on behalf of the enemy, and vets and medical doctors are unwittingly acting as collaborators. Worse, we animal guardians and parents are actually paying doctors and vets to unwittingly betray our loved ones.

    Potentially, vaccines are the stealth bomb of the medical world. They are used to catapult invaders inside the castle walls where they can wreak havoc, with none of us any the wiser. So rather than experiencing frank viral diseases such as the ‘flu, measles, mumps and rubella (and, in the case of dogs, parvovirus and distemper), we are allowing the viruses to win anyway—but with cancer, leukaemia and other inflammatory or autoimmune (self-attacking) diseases taking their place.

    The Final Insult

    All 27 veterinary schools in North America have changed their protocols for vaccinating dogs and cats along the following lines;15 however, vets in practice are reluctant to listen to these changed protocols and official veterinary bodies in the UK and other countries are ignoring the following facts.

    Dogs’ and cats’ immune systems mature fully at six months. If a modified live-virus vaccine is giver after six months of age, it produces immunity, which is good for the life of the pet. If another MLV vaccine is given a year later, the antibodies from the first vaccine neutralise the antigens of the second vaccine and there is little or no effect. The titre is not “boosted”, nor are more memory cells induced. Not only are annual boosters unnecessary, but they subject the pet to potential risks such as allergic reactions and immune-mediated haemolytic anaemia.

    In plain language, veterinary schools in America, plus the American Veterinary Medical Association, have looked at studies to show how long vaccines last and they have concluded and announced that annual vaccination is unnecessary.16-19

    Further, they have acknowledged that vaccines are not without harm. Dr Ron Schultz, head of pathobiology at Wisconsin University and a leading light in this field, has been saying this politely to his veterinary colleagues since the 1980s. I’ve been saying it for the past 20 years. But change is so long in coming and, in the meantime, hundreds of thousands of animals are dying every year— unnecessarily.

    The good news is that thousands of animal lovers (but not enough) have heard what we’ve been saying. Canine Health Concern members around the world use real food as Nature’s supreme disease preventative, eschewing processed pet food, and minimise the vaccine risk. Some of us, myself included, have chosen not to vaccinate our pets at all. Our reward is healthy and long-lived dogs.

    It has taken but one paragraph to tell you the good and simple news. The gratitude I feel each day, when I embrace my healthy dogs, stretches from the centre of the Earth to the Universe and beyond

    Vaccination and Homeopathy

    Translated by Katja Schütt and Andrea Smith

    Figure 1, 33 Rubrics from the Complete Repertory
    Praise of Smallpox Vaccination?

    But there those who argue that Hahnemann had a positive attitude toward vaccinations. They refer to a quote written in the Organon from which they conclude that Hahnemann much appreciated vaccinations.
    “By the way it is notable, that since the general distribution of Jenner’s Cow Pox vaccination, human small-pox never again appeared as epidemically or virulently as 40-50 years before…”

    § 46 Organon

    Why did Hahnemann receive the idea of smallpox vaccination so positively?

    In the chapters that precede paragraph 46 in the Organon he explains in detail the phenomena that existing disease symptoms will disappear temporarily or permanently due to the addition of a new disease. He refers to experiences gained by Dezoteux, Leroy and Wendt; who had observed the cure of former diseases after the application of smallpox vaccinations. Hahnemann’ point was to confirm his discovered Law of Similars and these reports encouraged him and were very convenient for him in confirming in his new healing principle: that a disease is extinguished by a similar one.

    The phrase “never again as epidemically as 40-50 years before” is a hint “from heresay” of uncertain numbers. There was little reliable epidemiological data available in Hahnemann’s time, and more reliable data only came into being after Hahnemann. Reports that there was a remedy against this dreadful disease, were understandably greeted with great hope. Hahnemann had not experienced later, more severe smallpox epidemics such as those in Germany about 1870.

    Moreover, for a long time smallpox vaccinations were made by non-physicians, the so-called “inoculists,” and only gradually, in the second half of the 19th century, were vaccinations made by special physicians. Hahnemann himself definitely never made vaccinations.

    Accurate Knowledge of Medicines?

    Did make Hahnemann make other statements from which we can conclude whether he appreciated or rejected vaccinations? Hahnemann writes in the preface of the sixth edition of the Organon:
    “Hence Homeopathy avoids everything in the slightest degree enfeebling… hence it employs for the cure only those medicines whose power for altering and deranging dynamically the health it knows accurately.”

    Preface to the sixth edition of the Organon

    Can we say of a vaccine that we know it’s impact accurately? A vaccine is a living culture with added substances (stabilizers) which prevents this culture from having a life of it’s own. These toxic substances, like mercury, aluminum, organic solvents, etc. surely evoke associations with known remedy diseases to each experienced homeopathic physician.

    The culture of a vaccine prospers on a foreign individual; chicken egg protein, monkey kidneys, human embryos. In any case, it contains traces of foreign protein. Each experienced homeopath knows about the importance of individuality. Only modern experiences of rejection reactions after Hetero-transplantations have shown the stress foreign proteins cause when they challenge an individual. We only come to know which reactions this biological medium brings about in the vaccinated body after the vaccination has been done. Hahnemann wrote an annotation on this point: „homeopathy does give simple medicines, which it knows exactly. It does not give mixtures”.

    Who Has Eradicated the Plagues?
    “He is, likewise, a preserver of health if he knows the things that derange health and cause and sustain disease, and how to remove them from persons in health.”

    § 4 Organon

    True prevention requires knowledge about the general living conditions which cause diseases. Worldwide, and independent of all times prevails a uniform opinion about the fundamental causes of disease and plagues. This concerns the adequate supply of fresh foods and a balanced nutrition, human housing conditions, proper clothing to protect themselves against cold and heat, pure drinking water, ways to keep body and clothes clean, and an efficient waste disposal, functioning canalization, etc., not to mention social peace and working conditions, family bonds and social order. It surely makes sense to everybody that the probability of plagues occurring increases and the general health of the population suffers during times of famine, destruction of all civilizing institutions by means of wars and insufficient care of the sick.

    These universally accepted correlations between living circumstances and development of disease are evident for everybody skilled in the art of healing.

    But a constant, consciously applied propaganda beclouds the correct view of these facts in even practicing homeopathic physicians.

    Therefore it is not surprising that some homeopaths also attribute the decrease of plagues at first to the effects of vaccinations. But it has been known for a long time that plagues as well as the mortality rate of infectious diseases like measles, diphtheria etc. had already definitely declined before the introduction of vaccinations. This decrease began when, as a result of technological progress, social advancement, and general hygienic knowledge, it became possible to cover the basic needs of men.

    Primum Nihil Nocere

    It is undeniable that countless people have lost their life and health by means of vaccinations. What does it mean when a physician himself sees healthy people pass away, rendered chronically ill, or crippled due to vaccinations? Why did Hahnemann abandon his occupation after his first experiences in medical practice? Did he point with shrugging shoulders to the doctrine of his times and continue to apply detrimental methods although humans got ill because of the prevalent applications of that time? Is it at all thinkable that he would have referred to a general hypothesis and continued to vaccine unconcernedly if he had observed with his own eyes the first signs of disease caused by vaccinations?

    Hahnemann shows his tactfulness and responsibility toward sick persons in his instructions on remedy provings. In paragraph 137 of the Organon he writes about the effects of excessively large doses of medicines:
    “not to mention that it is dangerous – something that cannot be a matter of indifference to anybody who respects mankind and counts even the lowliest of men as his brother.”

    § 137 Organon

    Who can imagine that Hahnemann would had continue to make provings if this would have caused serious disease or had even caused a first death? Could he not appeal rightfully to the highly strained argument of risk/benefit considerations?

    Yet Hahnemann expresses himself much more clearly in the preface to the Organon when the representatives of a medical direction carelessly disregarded the damages caused by the treatment.
    “When one is rendered insensible to the admonitions of conscience, this becomes a very easy business indeed.”

    Preface to The Sixth Edition of the Organon

    The Beginning of Disease

    Finally we come to a point in the Organon which no homeopathic physician will ignore. It is about the exploration of the sick person and especially about the activating cause of disease.
    “Useful to the physician in assisting him to cure are:

    The particulars of the most probable exciting cause of the acute disease
    The most significant points in the whole history of the chronic disease”

    § 5 Organon

    Now, when the patient tells the doctor that the respective disease began after the vaccination and was not caused by any other event, can the homeopathic physician then not listen? Especially when the sick person reports this spontaneously and with great emotion.

    Furthermore we have to ask about vaccinations separately within the complementary exploration. In many cases patients do not have the heart to mention this topic because certain physicians do not want to hear about it; or often the patient does not know that diseases are caused by or brought on by vaccinations. Therefore the careful anamnesis of each – also non homeopathic – physician has to be completed by the subject of vaccinations. Was the vaccination definitely the activating event? Does a physician only have to wait for the expert opinion of an officially qualified authority in order to draw a medical conclusion? Does it serve the science to overlook facts out of respect for an accepted hypothesis?

    Hypotheses and Medicine

    Asis generally known, Jenner had declared that one single smallpox vaccination brings about lifelong protection against further smallpox diseases. But he had to revise this opinion because the vaccinated got ill as well as the non-vaccinated in several regions during subsequent smallpox epidemics. The doctrine of lifelong immunity dates from the observation that particular exanthemic childhood diseases only occur once in most cases. Hahnemann writes in paragraph 73 of the Organon of the classification of acute diseases… which either befall a person only once in a lifetime (such as smallpox, measles, whooping-cough, mumps, or the old, smooth, bright red scarlet fever of Sydenham, etc.) … Here he repeats a theorem then considered valid, which is incorrect, but which is still taught today from elementary school to university and which obviously dates from superficial observation. Each physician experiences in longer practice that these childhood diseases can appear several times. But advocates of vaccination apply even this theorem, that undergoing an infectious disease provides lifelong immunity, in more speculative ways to all possible diseases. „Booster shots” were created to maintain the idea of protection effect by smallpox vaccination.

    Also, further chapters of theories which should have justified the protection effect of vaccinations became more and more questionable. The capability of the human organism to build antitoxin, on which E. Behring established serotheraphy around 1900, was disproved twenty-five years later by the toxicologist L. Levin, well-known to all homeopaths. Also the belief of neutralizing antibodies is at the most a thinking model, which complies in no case with the actual state of knowledge of molecular biology. Thus I have to close this paragraph with the following quote given by Hahnemann:
    “According to the testimony of all ages, no occupation is more unanimously declared to be a conjectural art than medicine”

    Preface to the First Edition of the Organon (1810)


    Everybody who treats his patient for the most part according to the homeopathic curative method will have to deal with the problem of vaccination. Therefore, rejection of particular vaccinations or vaccinations in general, or at least a critical attitude toward them will develop depending on the physician’s experience and level of knowledge. The main reasons for this are the special claims of homeopathy. Everybody who works according to this method follows the definite requirements of this healing method. The essentials are:

    To recognize before each medical treatment what enfeebles health and to avoid everything that promotes disease
    The avoidance of damages by the therapy itself – “Primum Nihil Nocere”
    Accurate knowledge of the remedies to prescribe
    Careful study of case history
    Delving into the data of the patient
    Serious, permanent revision of previous experiences and actual medical knowledge and prevalent doctrines – “Aude Sapere!”

    Did Hahnemann ever make vaccinations? This question can only be answered by those who treat their patients according to his spirit. And now for the final quote, this time not from Hahnemann.
    James Tyler Kent and vaccinationI have investigated the pros and cons of vaccinations and after perennial observations and accurate weighting of circumstances I came to the conclusion, that the proofs that argue for vaccinations are very doubtful. In fact vaccinations have contributed enormously to damage individuals and the entire mankind. They caused many humans to get sick, have produced many ulcers and have masked, I don’t doubt this, many constitutional ailments.If I weigh all this then I can’t see any reason why I could recommend vaccinations. I have refused vaccinations for many years and if a patient absolutely wants to get vaccinated then he has to resort to another person. I do not assume responsibility. I have applied an array of medicines prophylactically as long as the disease was prevailing and therefore I have several arguments for it, that the indicated remedy prevents the disease.Published in: “The Homeopathic Recorder”, Vol. XVI, No.12, 1901
