This prompted a determination to learn the truth and how to protect all children from such suffering. She found Dr. Isaac Golden (homeopath in Australia) to learn Homeoprophylaxis and Detoxing Vaccine Injury. Shortly thereafter, Sheila found Kate Birch and FHCi and joined forces to help further this important work. Sheila works via internet with families all over the world in both capacities, using video platforms to make it more personal. She also gives public lectures, as well as holding a social media space developed to “Educate, Equip, and Empower” for people to learn the truth about vaccines, infectious contagious disease, the immune system, and homeoprophylaxis.
