Homoeopaths used to recommend, and sometimes still do, Thuja 30C before vaccination. Personally, I have had unfortunate experiences with this and have never been able to confirm its efficacy. Paediatrician Yvonne Pernet has recommended Thuja 30C to the parents of all the children she has vaccinated for several years. When she stepped over to the preventive use of potentised vaccines the difference in the results was indisputable. There were patently fewer side-effects to vaccination with this novel method. In fact, the energetic level becomes safeguarded so it can no longer be disturbed by the vaccine. It is as if the organism is warned of the approaching ‘artificial’ illnesses and can therefore better maintain its balance. It must be remembered that chronic complaints can only occur because the deeper levels of our energy have been disturbed.
The procedure is as follows: two days before vaccination, give the potentised vaccine (e.g. DKTP) at 200C, about 10 small granules (globules), and repeat after vaccination, on the same day. The granules are of lactose and are absorbed quickly in the mouth. If there is to be no further vaccination for the time being, it is a good idea to administer the potentised vaccine a month later in increasing potencies of 30C, 200C, 1M and 10M on four consecutive days in order to correct any possible disturbance to the deeper energy levels. If, as can never be completely excluded, complications still occur despite these preventive measures, it is recommended that a solution in water of the 200C be given for three days at the acute stage and to repeat the whole series several weeks later. See case 9, Lisette.
Besides the preventive measures using potentised vaccine in the 200C dilution as described above, other means of prevention can lessen the risks from vaccination. In the first place this means being alert to signals from the child following vaccination. All too frequently it is assumed that all will be well and a following vaccine is administered unadvisedly.
