Homeoprophylaxis: Cuban Experiences on Leptospirosis

Cuban medical researchers recently announced at their Nosode 2008 Conference (December) that the 2007 and 2008 annual epidemic of leptospirosis was prevented by homeopathic immunisation (homeoprophylaxis).

Leptospirosis is a bacterial disease that affects humans and animals, and is spread by rats and flood waters. It can lead to disability and death. Symptoms of leptospirosis include a high fever, severe headache, chills, muscle aches, vomiting, jaundice, abdominal pain, diarrhea, and rash. Kidney damage, meningitis, liver failure, and respiratory failure can result.

Doctors and researchers from the Finlay Research Institute reported that of 2,500,000 people given the prophylactic, only ten went on to developed the disease. This was a marked difference to the tens of thousands who are normally infected each year. In addition, no lives were lost to the disease and the program was highly cost-effective in comparison to the traditional and less effective vaccine programs.

This research, soon to be published, adds to the information we have already collected on the effective use of homeopathic immunisation (homeoprophylaxis) over the past two hundred years.
