CNTF: Anti-vaccination & Homeoprophylaxis

Background

Cancer patients with suppressed immune systems rely solely on herd immunity for protection against vaccine-preventable diseases. If such a disease is contracted, they face a much greater risk of suffering complications from the disease.

Homeoprophylaxis is the practice of using a homeopathic remedy to prevent infectious disease. Many Australian homeopaths, naturopaths and other non-medical health practitioners promote and administer homeoprophylaxis as a safe and effective alternative to vaccination.

The homeopathic remedies used in homeoprophylaxis contain nothing but water so are therefore completely ineffective in preventing any vaccine-preventable disease.

On 20 May 2015 the Royal Australian College of General Practitioners (RACGP) released its position statement on homeopathy.[1] It states (excerpt):

In light of strong evidence to confirm that homeopathy has no effect beyond that of placebo as a treatment for various clinical conditions, the position of RACGP is:
  • Medical practitioners should not practice homeopathy, refer patients to homeopathic practitioners or recommend homeopathic products to their patients.
  • Pharmacists should not sell, recommend, or support the use of homeopathic products.
  • Homeopathic alternatives should not be used in place of conventional immunisation.
  • Private health insurers should not supply rebates for or otherwise support homeopathic services or products.
RACGP also outline harms associated with homeopathy. In the section titled "Delaying or avoiding conventional medical care" they warn:
"When homeopathic vaccines are used as an alternative to conventional immunisation, both the individual and the community are left exposed to preventable diseases."

'Immunization Options'
-Vaccination or Homeopathy?
by Dr Isaac Golden

Isaac is an internationally recognised homeopathic practitioner (since 1984), teacher (since 1998) and author of ten books, and founder and Director of the Australasian College of Hahnemannian Homoeopathy. In 2004 his research into the topic immunisation since 1986 earned him the first PhD awarded by a mainstream Australian University in a homeopathic subject.
This seminar is for all who want a balanced, informed, practical discussion on immunisation options. Here are some fo the many questions this seminar will be addressing:

  • What is homeopathic immunisation (homoeoprophylaxis) and how does it differ from vaccination?
  • What are some of the health risks associated with vaccination compared with homoeoprophylaxis?
  • What is the effectiveness of vaccination compared with homoeoprophylaxis?
  • What are the current legal and social implications of the Federal "No Jab No Pay" and the State "No Jab No Play" legislation?

'Immunization Options' - Vaccination or Homeopathy?
by Dr Isaac Golden

In this seminar you will explore immunisation options, and compare vaccination and homeopathic immunisation. The aim will be to provide you with facts on which to make an informed decision, and show you that you do have choices in what can be a difficult decision.

Isaac is an internationally recognised homeopathic practitioner (since 1984), teacher (since 1988) and author of ten books. He is founder and Director of the Australasian College of Hahnemannian Homœopathy, and is currently Business Manager of Academic Operations at the Endeavour College of Natural Health. In 2004 his research into this topic since 1986 earned him the first PhD awarded by a mainstream Australian University in a homeopathic subject.

This seminar is for all who want a balanced, informed, practical discussion of immunisation options.

Whilst the homeopathic preparation used in homeoprophylaxis is harmless - it is only water, after all - a grave risk is potentially posed to people who believe that they are protected from infectious disease when, in fact, they have no protection at all. Such a situation becomes even more serious for people with suppressed immune systems, as is the case for some cancer patients.

25 March 2015:
CNTF published this anti-vaccination post to its official Facebook page. This post claims that vaccines cause autism and that the increase in autism is due to the increase in the number of vaccines given in childhood. The overwhelming scientific consensus is that vaccines do not cause autism.[2]

And do afford yourself a smile seeing a registered health charity sharing health misinformation from David Icke:

1983: US Children 10 Vaccines
Autism Rate: 1 in 10,000

2008: US Children 36 Vaccines
Autism Rate: 1 in 150

2013: US Children 46 Vaccines
Autism Rate: 1 in 88

Just A Coincidence - Nothing To Worry About

The March 2014 CNTF newsletter published the article "Cervical Cancer Vaccine - Friend or Foe?"[3] This article leads readers to question both the safety and efficacy of the HPV vaccine, stating that there have been 15,037 adverse side effects from the vaccine and that 139 deaths are attributable to HPV related vaccinations.

From about March 2010 the CNTF website page Links has included links to two major Australian anti-vaccination activists; Viera Scheibner and Bronwyn Hancock's "Vaccination Information Service".

An article titled "Female HPV Gardasil Vaccine now approved for Boys in Australia" by Alan Ostrowsky was published in CNTF's September 2012 newsletter.[4]
This article describes information from Cancer Council Australia as "propaganda" and contains false and misleading information about HPV and vaccination.

CNTF's "Directory of Holistic/Natural Practitioners" has included a listing for Isaac Golden's "Aurum Healing Centre" with the byline Specializing in the treatment of vaccine damaged children from September 2010 to the present day.
