Infectious disease occurs when there is an adaptive mechanism need in that population. For example, the 1918 flu pandemic came immediately post-World War I where the whole of humanity suffered a kind of shock or bereavement. The adaptive mechanism brought on by the influenza virus lead to humans caring for each other to heal some of that trauma. Common symptoms of that flu epidemic were a sudden onset and collapse and were correspondingly treated by Gelsemium which not only addresses flu conditions but also ailments from shock.
If the infective process is denied through preventive intervention that does not address this susceptibility, we suppress that natural adaptation mechanism needed to heal the imbalance. The diagram below depicts this trajectory, or bell curve of evolution through a population. This comes from the understanding that all infectious diseases, but especially childhood infectious diseases, often serve to activate adaptive measures within the individual. Additionally, traditional injected vaccinations do not satisfy the healthy immunological development processes of individuals in the same way natural disease processes do. Furthermore, the introduction of a complex formulation of disease antigens, immunomodulators (adjuvants), antibiotics, and a host of other ingredients, generates a number of aberrant immunological responses and conditions.
Conversely, by introducing a nosode into the general population you can active that evolutionary process the infectious disease was intended to activate. The end result is a softening of the bell curve as herd immunity develops.
