Homeopathic Immunisation also called Homeoprophylaxis (HP) is a method of disease prevention that is safe, natural, and currently used in many countries. There are no toxins, preservatives, chemicals, or pathological particles. The philosophy behind homeoprophylaxis is that the micro-organisms themselves are not seen as the sole cause of disease, but rather an illness is an interplay between a micro-organism and the individual’s susceptibility to it.

The goal is to provide the immune system with information prior to disease exposure so that they can respond more quickly and effectively. In contrast to vaccination, Homeoprophylaxis does not rely on antibody formation, but on changing the susceptibility of the child or adult to disease. It works by educating your child’s immune system in a logical way.

Specific homeopathic remedies, related to infections, are used to prevent the individual from falling ill.


Vital Health Homeopathy Centre uses a program developed in Australia in 1986 by Dr Isaac Golden.

Dr. Isaac Golden designed a 5 year homeopathic immunisation program that parents could use instead of the orthodox vaccination schedules.

The program has been subjected to a 15 year clinical trial, the results of which, including the safety and efficacy of Homeoprophylaxis, are published in Dr. Golden’s recent publication; Homeoprophylaxis - A Fifteen year clinical Study. With his permission Vital Health & Homeopathy Centre have adapted his program to reflect the needs of families here in Ireland.

What evidence indicates that Homeoprophylaxis actually works?

  • 2007/2008   The Cuban government distributed a homeopathic nosode a remedy prepared from Leptospirosis disease to 2.3 million people at high risk of infection during a Leptospirosis epidemic. Around 8.8 million of the population was untreated. Within weeks, the treated population had an 84% decrease in disease incidence while the numbers of those infected. In the untreated population the number climbed. The homeopathic immunisation was strongly associated with a drastic reduction of Leptospirosis incidence resulting in complete control of the epidemic.  

  • 40,000 people were given the homeopathic prophylactic Lathyrus sativus during a polio outbreak in Buenos Aires in 1975. None of them developed polio.

  • In 1996, 175,000 people in India were treated in two days during a cholera outbreak. Immediately following there were no more incidents of death and in 10 days the outbreak was stopped.

  • In 1974, during a Meningococcal epidemic in Brazil, 18,640 children were given HP for protection against Meningococcal, and 6,340 were not. The following results were obtained:18,640 protected homeopathically – 4 cases of Meningococcal infection.

  • 6,340 not protected – 32 cases of Meningococcal infection.

  • Based on the infection (attack) rate in the unprotected group, 94 cases of infection would have been expected in the homeopathically protected group. Instead, there were only four cases of Meningococcal, showing that the homeopathic option was 95% effective against the meningococcal disease.

  • The results of the first study led to the Brazilian government to fund a larger study in 1998. It was conducted by two Professors of Medicine from the University Foundation in Blumenau, Brazil, and a Blumenau specialist physician and Health City Secretary.

  • A total of 65,826 people between the ages of 0-20 were given HP for protection against Meningococcal while 23,532 were not. Over a 12 month period, the following results were obtained:

  • 65,826 protected homeopathically – 4 cases of Meningococcal infection.

  • 23,532 not protected – 20 cases of Meningococcal infection.

  • Dr. Isaac Golden has a body of over 20 years of research on nearly 3,000 case studies in Australia and the children treated with homeoprophylaxis were the healthiest across the board throughout their lives when compared with children vaccinated with classical vaccines, non-vaccinated children and children treated with classical homeopathy.


When to consider a homeoprophylaxis program

If you have made the decision not to immunise your child conventionally and wish to look at Homeoprophylaxis as an option, please contact us Vital Health Homeopathy Centre to book an appointment.


If you decide to follow the Homeoprophylaxis program for your children, you will receive a kit with all the remedies necessary for the basic program. Included are all the instructions for administering the program and a chart to record the dates given and the results of giving the remedy.  This program is part of a replication of Dr. Golden's study.
