Research into the Effectiveness of Homeoprophylaxis
As homeoprophylaxis (HP) has limited exposure to the general public, more data is needed to demonstrate its efficacy. All participants in the HP program as delineated on this website will be participating in this research project. As the HP program takes 44 months to complete, careful monitoring of participants over several years is necessary. Data will be gathered from participants in the program for ten years and documented.
We are looking to not only demonstrate the efficacy of homeoprophylaxis for disease prevention, but also to assess the relative health of the individuals undertaking the program compared to children who are either vaccinated or have not received any infectious contagious disease prevention. All participants undertaking the are monitored for various factors.
Parameters of concern:
- efficacy of infectious contagious disease prevention/exposure rate
- development and sustaining of blood antibody titers
- effect on the relative health of the child in five categories:
- skin conditions
- ear/nose and throat conditions
- developmental and behavioral conditions; ADD, Autism etc.
Research will also determine various other factors including:
- educational status of the participating family
- economic status of the participating family
- lifestyle choices such as food preferences, television allotment, public or private school attendance
This data will serve to profile the individuals that have proactively sought out alternative forms of disease prevention, not only for the health of their children but also as they have chosen to be responsible to public health concerns through a different methodology of disease prevention, i.e. not vaccination. Some people falsely believe that those individuals who do not vaccinate may be contributing to increased incidence of infectious contagious disease and are putting others at greater risk of disease.
If homeoprophylaxis can be demonstrated to not only reduce the incidence of infectious contagious disease, reduce the incidence of other conditions (as above) which are currently related to vaccine injury, and to overall support the health of the participant, maybe then the use homeoprophylaxis in place of vaccines in public health campaigns will be implemented. (see other research)
Currently participants pay out-of-pocket for the HP program ( see Fees). Supervising homeopaths are paid out of this.
This program is in need of funding to pay for blood titers before, during, and after the program, and for the time to gather and collate data received. Currently a grant proposal is under development.
