Remedies for “Adverse Event Following Immunization (AEFI)”

Written by Joachim-F Grätz

Dr. Joachim-F. Grätz finds that vaccination may activate miasms other than sycosis, such as the tubercular miasm.

General Information about follow-up remedies to vaccinations:

It is too simplistic and often wrong to speak only of vaccine sycosis in the context of vaccination. We will have to reconsider our idea that vaccination always activates sycosis. Strictly speaking, this was only true for smallpox vaccination, which was the only common form of vaccination in the time when von Boenninghausen and Burnett lived.

Nowadays, however, due to the multitude of vaccinations and the different diseases to be immunized, every miasm can be activated by a vaccination. I have seen cases in my homeopathic practice where the vaccinations were followed by Thuja, but their children still developed epilepsy!

If one deals in detail with the newer vaccination literature, in particular with the two books of Harris L. Coulter “DPT – A Shot in the Dark” and “Vaccination, Social Violence, and Criminality: The Medical Assault on the American Brain”, one will be amazed what vaccinations can do.

In very many cases, which were not described under homeopathic aspects, the tubercular miasm is found in the first place! A treasure trove for the study of every homeopath!

Furthermore, Coulter shows that vaccinations can cause lasting damage to the organism and brain, especially if this practice is started at a very early age. He shows that phenomena such as autism, MCD (minimal cerebral dysfunction like ADD or ADHD), hyperactivity, aggressiveness, lack of concentration, attention deficits, learning disorders of all kinds, retarded development, allergies, speech delay, intelligence defects, fat addiction, emaciation, tendency to catch colds and much more are symptom complexes of the so-called postencephalitic syndrome (consequences of a diffuse brain inflammation) and have increased enormously especially since the large vaccination programs.

In former times such phenomena occurred very rarely! An accumulation occurred exclusively in the wake of epidemic encephalitis (e.g. between 1919 and 1928), which caused such permanent damage.

Today, to a large extent, the routine vaccinations cause the postencephalitic syndrome! Consequences are neurological disorders, because especially the central nervous system and the cerebral nerves are affected. The key is to be seen in the myelination process, which is forcibly interrupted, so that it comes to short circuits and lasting neurological damages in the infant brain (still immature to a large extent). This is also the reason why psychotherapy is so ineffective here! – It’s a “hardware” problem, not a “software” problem!

The scary thing is that severe long-term neurologic sequelae may not necessarily be linked to severe acute reactions to previous vaccinations! That is, acute encephalitis will not always be detectable. This is mainly due to the fact that in infants and toddlers the brain is not able to react in a certain way (inflammation) to the damage set by the vaccination because of its immaturity – until about the age of three.

Only after that all symptoms belonging to a “post-vaccination encephalitis” (vaccination brain inflammation) can be clearly proven! In Germany, however, children are vaccinated very early – before they reach the “encephalitis age”! The possible form of reaction can therefore “only” consist of a “post-vaccination encephalopathy” (diffuse brain disease following vaccination), which in its acute stage is relatively asymptomatic and therefore difficult to recognize. It also results in a much greater degree of late damage (as described above).

Due to these facts and connections it seems to be time to properly extend our general vaccination rubric, which still results from the smallpox vaccination time. However, for this purpose we do not need to laboriously collect any means from the literature, but it is sufficient if we simply refer to the existing rubrics of our proven Kent Repertory!

The encephalitis rubrics (brain inflammation rubrics), which are compiled in the list below, come into question. That means, all remedies, which are represented here, can also be considered as vaccine follow-ups, since – as Coulter could not have shown us better – causally a post-vaccinal encephalitic syndrome is present, and these remedies have proven themselves for over 150 years, thus are highly verified.

Main rubrics for vaccine consequences (KENT Repertory and SR [Barthel/Klunker]) and
potential vaccine follow-up remedies sorted by hits

BCG vaccination and tuberculinia

BCG vaccination (Bile – or Bacillus – Calmette-Guérin, vaccination against tuberculosis) can trigger the tubercular miasm (tuberculinia), so that all tubercular deficiencies appear. This seems to be very logical, because originally the “BCG vaccination” was only suitable to trigger a tuberculous initial infection (which its supporters judged to be less dangerous than the natural initial infection).

Only in the course of time it has moved up to the rank of an immunity-conferring vaccine. But how, serious scientists wonder, is BCG vaccination supposed to protect against tuberculosis when surviving true tuberculosis is no protection against new disease? “Tuberculosis is obviously the exact opposite of an immunizing disease.”

Among experts, there is even the term “BCGitis”, which is understood as a type of tuberculosis of the lymph, which manifests itself in purulent adenitis and fever (iatrogenic after BCG vaccination). The so-called Tine test, which is carried out to determine whether a person has had TB, can also have the same effect as a vaccination, with the corresponding consequences.

Based on these considerations, it would be worth examining whether the Kent rubric “Chest – phthisis – pulmonalis” could also function as a general BCG vaccine rubric.

In addition, it is useful to consult the central mercury rubric “Generalities – mercury, abuse of “ plus its 40 local mercury rubrics in case of reactions and damages, so to speak as a consequence of the thimerosal[1] in the vaccines (syphilitic miasmatization).

Covid-19 vaccines

There is no real experience yet on Covid-19 vaccines in terms of long-term side effects; consequently also no homoeopathic experience regarding recommended vaccine follow-ups. Whether the rubrics discussed so far also have their validity here, cannot be said conclusively yet. Since these new vaccines are totally different from all others that have been so far (keywords: mRNA vaccine, spike protein), we cannot yet give definitive recommendations.

We know of only one case of a young female farm worker in a neighboring riding stable, mother of twins, who used to be very cheerful and frisky. But the week after the first Covid-19 vaccination she got very severely depressive, so that she had to take psychopharmaceuticals and give up her work temporarily.

Since we were not really aware of the (chronic) medical history of this young woman, but things became more and more clear through the current alternative media, we first gave her one spoonful of Nux vomica LM12 (Q12), 5 drops in a glass of water (succuss vial vigorously 10 times before use; stir the drop into the glass with a vortex, but don’t use a metal spoon!), on a daily basis, for detox; a remedy which is not a typical vaccine follow-up. But after just a few days the woman was happier again; over time she could gradually reduce her psychopharmaceuticals and after a few weeks even stop them completely.

However, which long-term damages are still lying dormant there, despite Nux vomica? No reliable statement can be made on this so far! Only a few years will tell. – Here, of course, a chronic anti-miasmatic treatment would have to take place immediately.

In any case, this little case study proves that the Covid-19 vaccinations can cause important side effects, otherwise Nux vomica could not have helped so well and quickly.

[1] Thimerosal: thiomersal; chemical compound of thiosalicylic acid and ethyl mercury; already breaks down into these components in the vaccine ampoule and then contains 50% pure mercury! – Recently, it has been repeatedly claimed that thimerosal is no longer contained in the newer vaccines. However, one should know that there are now more than 20 (!) synonyms for this term („Kritische Analyse der Impfproblematik“ (=Critical Analysis of the Vaccination Problem), Anita Petek-Dimmer), but unfortunately the substance has not changed!

About the author

Joachim-F Grätz

Dr. Joachim-F. Grätz, Germany, has been working very successfully as a classical homeopath for over 30 years, taking into account the so-called miasms (chronic basic diseases, disease behind the diseases) and is known far beyond the borders of Germany. The uniqueness of his form of therapy consists in his holistic worldview whereby he also integrates insights from dealing with other natural laws into his homeopathic thinking. This enables him to recognize the causal relationships of every illness and to treat them accordingly. – An extraordinarily successful practitioner, even with the most severe diseases.

Dr. Grätz studied homeopathy with the well-known German homeopath Dr. Otto Eichelberger in Munich, who was one of the first to take the miasms into account in therapy and who made the LM-potencies (Q-potencies) public in the German-speaking countries. He attended seminars of Gerhard Risch, Dr. Mohinder Singh Jus, Georgos Vithoulkas, Dr. Michael Barthel, Yves Laborde, Dr. Rajan Sankaran and Paul Herscu and got acquainted with different directions of homeopathy.

For a time Dr. Grätz was also a lecturer in classical homeopathy at various academies of naturopathy and homeopathy in Munich, Zurich, Köthen, Gauting, Salzburg, and Vienna, and also at the Ludwig Maximilian University in Munich for interested medical students. He wrote several books on cassical homeopathy and the miasms with a variety of impressive case studies, on the nature of potencies in acute and chronic homeopathy, and on vaccinations, and published a double DVD.
