A Modern Success Story: Homeoprophylaxis and the Cuban Government

By Shelly Garrison, C.C.H.

Within weeks, the treated provinces had an 84% decrease in disease incidence *(xxxii)

…results supported previous conclusions that homeoprophylaxis can be used to effectively immunize people against targeted infectious diseases such as Leptospirosis. *(xxxiii)

In late 2007, the Cuban government rapidly distributed a homeopathic nosode (a remedy prepared from a disease component) of four Leptospirosis strains to 2.3 million people at high risk of infection from an annual Leptospirosis epidemic. The remaining population of 8.8 million was untreated. Within weeks, the treated provinces had an 84% decrease in disease incidence while the numbers of those infected in untreated provinces continued at expected historical levels. The intervention was “strongly associated with a drastic reduction of disease incidence resulting in complete control of the epidemic.” The protective effect continued into 2008 with an 84% reduction in Leptospirosis cases for the treated areas though no further prophylactic had been given. Leptospirosis infections in untreated areas increased by 22%. (xxxii)


2014: A re-evaluation of the above 2007-8 Cuban Leptospirosis intervention was published. It assessed the influence of potential confounders on initial results and concluded that the results supported previous conclusions that homeoprophylaxis can be used to effectively immunize people against targeted infectious diseases such as Leptospirosis.

We have the opportunity to apply homeoprophylaxis, now, during the Novel Coronavirus circulation. The research platform through Free and Healthy Children International has already rolled out. Contact me for more information or find a provider here.
