Historical Use of Homeopathy for Epidemics

· During a Poliomyelitis epidemic in Buenos Aires, practitioners (Homeopaths and Doctors) distributed the Homeopathic vaccination remedy Lathyrus sativus to over 40,000 people. Not one of them developed Polio during the epidemic despite exposure.

· Nurses and patients protected by Homeopathic Vaccination at the London Homeopathic Hospital remained disease free during a 3 year period in which they were regularly exposed to Diphtheria.

· Records from a Smallpox epidemic show that of 2806 individuals protected by Homeopathic Vaccination, 547 of them went on to have a known exposure to the disease. Of those, 97.5% remained disease free.
