Post-Vaccination Syndrome


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.

Dr. Jean Elminger declares in his book La médecine retrouvée3 that:

  1. vaccination is carried out too early; in the sense that the new-born baby is building up his own cellular (general) defense and will pay for a shift towards humoral defense with a weakening of its immune system as a whole. It is interesting to note in this context that cot deaths have practically been eradicated1 in Japan, where the whooping-cough vaccine is not given before two years of age.
  2. too many vaccines are administered together; Economic considerations have dictated for several years now that an increasing number of vaccinations be given at the same time, e.g. MMR-D(K)TP or DKTP-HIB. Six or seven different vaccines at one time brings added risks; after all, one would not naturally contract six or seven diseases at the same time.
    The original notion was to give the HIB separately from the DKTP as a combination of the two would overburden the child. In practice this created organizational difficulties so it was decided to give DKTP and HIB together. Three-month-old babies are therefore given 15 vaccinations in two months. The child's defense mechanism at this age is undeveloped and vulnerable. The defenses passed from mother to child are slowly breaking down and the child has to develop its own defenses. It is therefore not surprising that the child experiences difficulty in coping with the heavy stimulation of its specific defensive mechanism caused by the combined disease germs, foreign proteins, chemical pollutants and additives all being pumped into its body within a short period. Consequently all sorts of chronic complaints stemming from weakened general defences occur at this time. This way the child is forced to concentrate on the specific defence against the administered diseases and is not given the chance to develop its own more general defense mechanism. The general defences can even be seriously broken down, as is shown by the cases described.
    The necessity for vaccinating so young and so frequently in a period of vulnerability has never been demonstrated. Generally speaking, two D(K)TP vaccinations and one booster six months later should be sufficient for the first four years of life. (see case 15).
  3. vaccination is carried out too frequently; The necessity for such an early and so frequent vaccination in such a vulnerable period of life has never been proved. Two vaccinations and one booster six months later should be enough for the first four years. (see case 16).
  4. vaccines cultivated on animal proteins are used, which also contain chemical additives that can excite allergies; The preparation of safer vaccines without animal proteins or chemical additives is no easy matter. One possibility would be the fully synthetic preparation of vaccines. The first fully synthetic vaccine (against malaria), originating in Bolivia, is already being used on a small scale.

SUMMING UP I should like to make the following recommendations concerning vaccination policy.

  1. To implement vaccination later. Hold back vaccination until the child has built up its cellular defenses (general defenses) sufficiently.
    There are enough variations worldwide in the age at which children receive their first vaccination for a preliminary balance-sheet of the advantages and disadvantages to be made up. A useful example is the whooping-cough vaccination in Japan, which is not given before two years1. A comparative study could be made by for example not vaccinating children from a particular region before ten months and following their progress compared with a control group of children vaccinated from their third month.
  2. To administer vaccines separately where possible. In the first place the HIB can be given by itself again, as in the USA. Moreover the DKTP or DTP should never be combined with the MMR, as now happens with nine-year-olds. Vulnerable children who displayed strong reactions to an earlier vaccination should as a matter of course be given a DTP instead of a DKTP. Research6 shows that DKTP gives more cause for complaint than DTP.
  3. Increase the intervals between vaccines: two months instead of one month. This is less troublesome to the child and is more efficacious.
  4. Reducing the total number of vaccinations to three from four for the D(K)TP and HIB, the first two with an interval of two months and the third after six months, as is already the case for children of foreign origin.
  5. Keeping a careful record of the child's reactions to the previous vaccine before further vaccinating the child. A more stringent and cautious policy than the present one towards complications needs implementing.
  6. No further vaccinations before complete recovery from post-vaccination symptoms. Children with a suspected post-vaccination syndrome require treatment and cure with the potentised vaccine. Following this, full or partial vaccination should be abandoned and preventive measures with the vaccine at 200K need to be taken.
  7. Systematic protection with potentised vaccine at every vaccination if the comparative study yields positive results.
  8. Specific instruction concerning PVS to doctors, nurses and parents.
