Title: Evaluation of the Strange, Rare and Peculiar data in the Australian Immunisation Handbook, 10th edition, online, and its relevance to homoeopaths, homoeopathic case-taking and remedy choices

Linda Hanson BHSc(Hom); MCouns; PhD, has been involved in many areas of natural health for fifty years. She has a Bachelor degree in Health Science (Homoeopathy), a Master's degree in Counselling, and a PhD that encompasses a special approach to the research of thyroid conditions.
Her doctorate integrates a variety of disciplines that involve the principles of medicine, homoeopathy, psychology, quantum physics, education, neurology, kinesiology, anatomy, counselling, the biological aspects of stress and anger, personal growth, meditation and spirituality.
In her private practice, Linda encourages clients in exploring and encouraging the behaviours, attitudes and belief that contribute to the coherence, harmony and wellbeing of the human experience.

Abstract: This report is a scholarly review of the internal and external validity, rigour and integrity of a readily accessible, public document about vaccinations. The Handbook is available to the public as a source of important, scientific data about vaccination contents and protocols that have significant social repercussion in the wider community and as such cannot afford to present strange, peculiar and unreliable data. This review is then examined for ways that this valuable information could inform more effective homoeopathic practices.

Keywords: safety; reliability; power; tetanus; diphtheria; pertussis; poliovirus; Haemophilis influenza type b; contradictions; inconsistencies; anomalies; opposing statements; theoretical reasons; evidence; pregnant women; infants; maternal antibodies; infant's immune system; reduce immune response; vaccine contents; adjuvants; aluminium; formaldehyde; glutaraldehyde; polysorbate; polymyxin; streptomycin; neomycin; yeast proteins; bovine serum albumin; phenoxyethanol; other ingredients; morbidity; mortality; rationale; specific safety data; limited; potential disadvantage; not fully understood; adverse effects; full limb swelling; consent; legally valid; voluntarily; specific procedures; potential risks and benefits; alternate options; seek further details; personalised medicine; homoeopathic awareness; observations; case-taking and remedy selection

AROH - Code of Professional Conduct

The following list contains excerpts from AROH's Code of Professional Conduct. In my opinion, the Code does not permit its Registrants to publicly comment on health-related matters when relying on non-valid sources e.g. pseudoscientific and/or conspiracy websites, nor does it permit the use of scare articles and/or images to emotionally manipulate patients and the public.

  • 1. Provide Safe, Ethical and Competent Health Care
    • 1.2 Without limiting or derogating from 1.1 above, Registrants shall fulfill their duty of care toward patients and must:
      • apply their professional capacity as a practitioner to improve the health and well-being of their patients, and attempt to minimise physical or emotional harm
      • interact with patients (and related parties), diligently, honestly, fairly, and in good faith, subject to confidentiality considerations, bearing in mind the patient's position of dependence and the high degree of trust a patient places in the Registrant;
  • 3. Support (present and potential) Patients to Make Informed Decisions
    Registrants shall provide patients with reliable information and professional opinions, and must not conduct their practice, or the advertising thereof, in a way that might reasonably be expected to mislead or deceive a person, as to the nature and identity of the provider, or as to the nature or quality of the services offered.
  • 5. Place the Welfare of Patients above Self-Interest
    In relation to clinical practice and the advertising thereof, the welfare of patients, students, research subjects and the public shall take precedence over a practitioner's self-interest and the interests of employees and colleagues, in accordance with normal consulting practice.
    In particular, Registrants shall refrain from:
    • exploiting patients financially, or misinforming them in relation to health care products or services. When providing advice in a professional capacity, Homoeopaths shall be honest, and explain the advantages and disadvantages, so that the patient can make an informed choice.
    • attempting to dissuade patients from seeking or continuing treatment with a registered medical practitioner, unless on substantial grounds,…
  • 10. Maintain Professional Integrity and Personal Conduct
    Registrants shall at all times conduct their practice, communications and affairs in a courteous, dignified and responsible manner consistent with this Code and the AROH Standards of Practice and so as not to bring the Homoeopathic medical profession into disrepute.
    In particular Registrants must:
    • identify themselves by name, in any communications concerned with their practice or other health related matters,
    • avoid offensive, provocative or misleading statements, publications or conduct
Let me repeat that very last point again:
Registrants must avoid offensive, provocative or misleading statements, publications or conduct.

[Hanson comment] "Reading about the vaccinations is scary enough but seeing the illustrations of where the little ones are vaccinated and with what, makes me wonder how any baby injected like this, survives such an onslaught. Where is the common sense in such an action?"

[Hanson comment] "These illustrations have really upset me. If a child was brought to surgery with bruises in these areas and was not well, crying unable to move limbs etc., the medical staff would immediately suspect child abuse and call the police and have the child removed from the abusers. And these injections contain toxins. Is this not child abuse?"

"Amazing development. Recent studies have paved the way for changes in vaccines to avoid adverse side effects after a flu shot.
