Homeoprophylaxis: Safe Alternatives To Vaccines

Today’s topic is close to my heart. Dr. Cilla Whatcott has a very deep understanding about educating our immune system how to combat disease without the use of vaccines and instead use homeoprophylaxis.

Slow Realization

Whatcott grew up in New Jersey, and her dad was an immigrant from Italy. Her mother died when she was 16 years, and she watched that process with what occurred within Western medicine surrounding her illness and her death.

Whatcott’s father died when she was in her 20s, and she observed the same thing. Their death sowed the seeds of her interest in medicine.

Whatcott wanted to have a large family. But when she married, she found out she couldn’t have kids, so Whatcott started adopting. She adopted a child from Taiwan, another from mainland China and Russia. So it was a surprise when Whatcott did end up having a biological child.

Taking Matters At Her Hands

Whatcott’s four kids had different illnesses. Nothing in conventional medicine completely cured them.

Finally, she had a pediatrician in Washington who advised Whatcott to try homeopathy, particularly for her son’s asthma. Within six months, his asthma disappeared.


Whatcott took her son with migraines, and it also disappeared. Her daughter who had kidney reflux never had a kidney infection anymore after getting healed by homeopathy.


Whatcott was fascinated by homeopathy and decided to go back to school. She studied for four years in homeopathic school.

The Power Of Homeopathy

Whatcott’s father didn’t understand what the medical doctors told him. At one point, he misunderstood the doctor and thought the doctor said to him that he was cancer-free.

So he came home and told Whatcott he was cured. He had a prognosis which gave him another year to live, but because he believed he was cured, he lived another fifteen years.

“I saw the power of the doctor’s words being the medicine. People believe what they are told. Our health is not only physical. It involves our thoughts, emotions and our mind,” said Whatcott.

Discovering Homeoprophylaxis

With this information, homeopathy is such a deep curative form of medicine. I went on to study a subset of homeopathy which is homeoprophylaxis.

When Whatcott adopted her daughter from China, she was 10 pounds at a year old and could barely hold up her head. Her pediatrician administered all her vaccines and one night got a high fever, had meningitis, and she almost died.

Whatcott researched and found out that meningitis is the side effect of some of the vaccines. The MMR, that’s one of the side effects.

So Whatcott went back to the pediatrician, and she denied it. That’s when Whatcott realized only she could really look out for what’s best for her children.

“Based on a recent statistics, pediatricians make an average of half a million dollars or more if they vaccinate all their kid patients by the age of two,” Whatcott shares. “It cost around $400 per child.”

Dr. Isaac Golden’s Program

Dr. Isaac Golden developed a program in Australia. Homeoprophylaxis has been subjected to a 15-year ongoing trial and clinical study. The outcome of this research, including the efficacy and safety of homeoprophylaxis, are published in Dr. Golden’s Homeoprophylaxis – A Fifteen Year Clinical Study.

“The aim of homeoprophylaxis is to introduce into the human system safe, homeopathic versions of particular diseases to naturally stimulate the immune system,” Whatcott said. “As a result, susceptibility to targeted diseases can be reduced.”


The Program

These are the components of the program developed by Dr. Golden:

  1. Four years of homeoprophylaxis remedies for the most commonly vaccinated diseases
  2. Individualized, 1-hour appointment, to explain the program
  3. Can be started at any time even if some vaccines have been given
  4. No more needles
  5. Additional remedies for individual needs (foreign travel, or disease outbreaks)
  6. No toxic substances
  7. Any necessary consultation during the program
  8. No side effects

Homeopathy and Homeoprophylaxis

Homeopathy is a complete system of medicine. It treats all chronic and acute disease very effectively. Homeoprophylaxis is a different principle.

“Homeoprophylaxis is the use of diluted and potentized disease products which we call nosodes or materials from an animal, mineral or vegetable source,” said Whatcott. “It is to educate the immune system, before encountering the disease. Hence, there’s no such thing as a homeopathic vaccine. That does not exist.”

Within classical homeopathy, the belief is, we look for something that is called genus epidemicus. And a genus epidemicus is when there’s an outbreak of an epidemic, you collect the data from a certain number of cases and you see what remedies work well with that epidemic.

The problem is, you have to wait for everyone to get sick. Then you have to organize and coordinate data amongst homeopaths to determine genus epidemicus. After that, you distribute the homeopathic remedy to people who are ill.

“Homeoprophylaxis precludes getting the disease. It educates the immune system before the disease comes around. You know you’re training the immune system because you see the results,” explained Whatcott.

Side Effects Of Homeoprophylaxis

First of all, we don’t see side effects but rather the immune response. Hence, after getting homeoprophylaxis, you are going to see the immune system wake up.

And the way that it will look may be rosy cheeks, longer or shorter nap, runny nose or extra stool in the diaper. But after 24 hours, that will come down to a baseline. I see that in vaccinated children.

Furthermore, when giving to adults, they usually say they have swollen glands, throat is itchy, and it will all be gone in 24 hours.


Getting A Headstart to Good Health

1. Trust your gut. You have the ability to make wise choices for yourself and your children.
2. Reframe your view of viruses, fevers, and minor illnesses. We need these microorganisms to be healthy.
3. Pay attention to your diet and your thoughts – these are two mainstays of health.

Cilla Whatcott is a board-certified classical homeopath with a B.A. from Arizona State University, a diploma from the four-year professional program at Northwestern Academy of Homeopathy, Minneapolis, MN and a Ph.D. in Homeopathy. She is an instructor at Normandale Community College and the author of “There Is a Choice: Homeoprophylaxis,” and co-author of “The Solution – Homeoprophylaxis.”
