A number of chronic disease conditions seem to be related to vaccinations. Many generations of over-vaccinating animals seem to be bringing out deep, chronic disease syndromes. In homeopathy, underlying weaknesses or inborn disease tendencies are known as miasms. We are seeing a new miasm in great numbers of animals, and the beginnings of it in people – the miasm of Vaccinosis.
Vaccinosis is a disease syndrome caused by a weakness that is precipitated by vaccination. It is becoming rampant in the dog and cat population. Examples of vaccinosis include autoimmune diseases, such as irritable bowel disorders, lupus and pemphigus; hypothyroidism in dogs; eosinophilic skin disorders, hyperthyroidism and asthma in cats; and chronic skin disease or allergic dermatitis in dogs and cats.
These diseases are identified as vaccine-related conditions for two reasons. 1.) The onset of the symptoms is associated with the date of vaccination in many cases. Usually, two weeks to one month following a vaccination, symptoms such as skin WSproblems, diarrhea or asthma ensue. 2.) Homeopathic remedies that are effective on vaccine-related problems are often the same remedies needed in these diseases, and the patient’s response to these remedies can be dramatic and curative. Some of the more common vaccinosis remedies used are thuja occidentalis, silicea, sulphur, malandrinum, mezureum and lyssin. more
