QUESTION AND ANSWER DEPARTMENT. Quiet likely the actual proving of such substances would produce more or less immunity and it would be far safer to prove a vaccine under expert supervision than to receive a single shot in the arm of the original commercial product. When vaccines and serums are introduced through the skin something of unknown complexity has been turned loose within the body.


Question: ARE THERE ANY VALID OBJECTIONS TO THE USE OF POTENTIZED VACCINES IN HOMOEOPATHIC PRACTICE?

Answer: Potentization and oral administration will remove the objectionable features from any substance no matter how simple or complex. The homoeopathic materia medica already includes practically everything from gold and silver to decayed meat and septic pus. The only problem is that : What are the indications for the employment of a particular vaccine or other (potentially) medicinal substance? Provings and accumulated clinical observation are the answer.

Question: WOULD THE ADMINISTRATION OF POTENTIZED VACCINES PRODUCE AN IMMUNITY AGAINST THE DISEASES FOR WHICH SUCH VACCINES ARE COMMONLY EMPLOYED?

Answer: Quiet likely the actual proving of such substances would produce more or less immunity and it would be far safer to prove a vaccine under expert supervision than to receive a single shot in the arm of the original commercial product. When vaccines and serums are introduced through the skin something of unknown complexity has been turned loose within the body. The ultimate effect may be a degenerative process extending over a period of many years. We do not approve of any form of artificial immunization. The best immunity against any disease is good health.

Question: DO YOU EVER EMPLOY THE LOW POTENCIES LIKE THE 3X. AND THE 6X.?

Answer: One of the most satisfying reactions we ever observed was in a case of alcoholic neuritis in which Nux vom. 1x. was repeated t.i.d. after the same remedy in the 200th and higher potencies failed to induce any observable response. There is no need to limit one self in the matter of potency. We usually prefer the higher centesimal range, but there are cases with advanced pathology or other modifying factors where only the low triturations or even the tincture will take old and arouse the vital force.
