Views on Vaccination

Are Homeopaths opposed to vaccinations?

There are different schools of thought about this within the homeopathic community. Some Homeopaths support vaccination. Others are concerned that the long-term effects of vaccination on the immune system are not fully known and therefore not taken into consideration in cost/benefit calculations. There is evidence within the mainstream medical literature that vaccination may predispose towards auto-immune diseases such as rheumatoid arthritis.

NZCH believes that:

  • Parents have the right to make their own informed choice about whether to vaccinate their child or not.
  • More research is needed to elucidate the long-term balance of costs and benefits arising from vaccination.

For more information about vaccinations refer to the website for the Immunization Awareness Society www.ias.org.nz and the Ministry of Health www.moh.govt.nz.

Can Homeopathy help people who have had a severe reaction to a vaccination?

Yes, there are many recorded cases of people making dramatic improvements with homeopathic medicines, following a bad reaction to a vaccination. Expert advice from a registered homeopath is required.
