Guardian story on CEASE therapy and homeoprophylaxis in the US #2

A previous post looked at members of the North American Society of Homeopaths (NASH) who offer CEASE therapy or homeoprophylaxis (homeopathic "vaccination"). This post looks at (mainly) homeopaths and some other practitioners who actively offer either of the two therapies.

It also discusses several different organisation, touches on regulation and other points of interest. It picks up a few NASH members missed off the previous post. It is not a comprehensive list of all practitioners offering CEASE or homeoprophylaxis. For one thing the data in the public domain is likely incomplete. Also, some practitioners don't have websites or say very little. Some of the same content is repeated by various practitioners.

Homeoprophylaxis - A Worldwide Choice

Homeoprophylaxis - A Worldwide Choice (HPWWC) is "a rapidly growing not-for-profit organisation.  Our mission is to help the world learn about and utilize the nontoxic choice for disease prevention, Homeoprophylaxis." There are also this older website and a website for their 2020 conference in New Delhi.

HPWWC was formed in 2015 by Cathy Lemmon. It's not clear if it is a splinter group of Free and Healthy Children International (FHCI - discussed here) or why Lemmon (and Cilla Whatcott) left. It has less practitioners on its directory than FHCI. HPWWC doesn't offer a training course itself unlike FHCI but is does link to The Quest for Simillimum  (TQFS) where Isaac Golden (there's not a succinct article on him) seems to have a course. TQFS is run by Australia-based Shilpa Bhouraskar. Other courses offered include one from Jeremy Sherr in treating epidemics and AIDS. Bhouraskar seems to have been involved with Golden for a number of years.

One crucial difference between HPWWC and FHCI is that HPWWC organise conferences. There was one in 2015 in the US and 2017 in the Netherlands. The 2020 conference in New Delhi could mark a new tactic. It's unknown how prevalent homeoprophylaxis is in India but India has a much greater problem with vaccine preventable diseases.

Cathy Lemmon's website has a page on homeoprophylaxis that links to HPWWC and various training courses. 

Lemmon can be seen in an internet video with the late Debby Bruck. 

There are other interviews/presentations featuring Lemmon out there. Her own website tells us that she is a member of the Texas Society of Homepathy and the National Center for Homeopathy

Cilla Whatcott was a director of HPWWC but stopped being so some time prior to September 2017. The older website of the HPWWC still shows her as a director. Whatcott has several websites. This is one that is mostly about her and it tells us -
She was recently awarded a 2016 Activist Award by the Weston A. Price Foundation for her work with homeoprophylaxis.
That says something about WAPF. Family Homeopathy Care relates to her actual practice. It's known that Whatcott offers CEASE therapy but no mention of it is made there. There is also her Real Immunity website. Whatcott touts her own business there. Whatcott also offers training to "medical professionals". But it's the professional looking  films that differentiate Whatcott from the other proponents of homeoprophylaxis. From the blurb about the films -
World renowned immunologist, Dr. Tetyana Obukhanych, shares the antidote to overcome fear. And Dr. Jeanne Ohm, the director of the International Chiropractic Pediatric Association, talks about how to access your deepest intuition.
Obukhanych is not renown outside of the bubble of anti-vaccinationists. Ohm and ICPA are anti-vaccination and the press kit reveals their deeper involvement.
Hear from Dr. Andrew Wakefield, the controversial figure credited with polarizing the vaccine debate, as he discusses the Cuban study with homeoprophylaxis preventing leptospirosis. Learn how Del Bigtree supports the power of intuition.
Andrew Wakefield is a supporter of homeoprophylaxis? This seems unlikely but Wakefield did speak at the HPWWC 2015 conference. Money might have something to do with - a video of Wakefield speaking at that conference can be streamed for $20. Also, some homeopaths are among Wakefield's most fervent supporters. Apparently the films themselves were funded by a Kickstarter campaign. Whatcott has a YouTube channel where snippets of these films can be seen.

Astra Rugless
Rugless is based in California. Her Treatments page has brief descriptions of CEASE therapy and homeoprophylaxis. Her website does not have the necessary disclaimer that she is not a medical practitioner. Elsewhere she links to FHCI.

Rugless is on the board of the California Homeopathic Medical Society. It's not clear what it does.

Beheshteh Zargaran
"Doctor" Zargaran isn't an MD. Zargaran has the Doctor of Veterinary Medicine qualification but not not seem to be registered with the Minnesota Board of Veterinary Medicine. Zargaran is registered with Council for Homeopathic Certification (CHC). CHC's Code of Ethics states -
Exercise appropriate discretion in the wording of any advertisements; practitioners who are not medically licensed with authority to diagnose and treat in the state/province where they practice should carefully avoid any reference to medical diagnoses or diagnostic tests, and focus on establishment of health rather than resolution of disease. 
Unless you possess a healthcare license which precludes the need for disclosure/informed consent about homeopathy ---then use a disclosure/informedconsent form which clearly and accurately identifies your training, credentials, skills and nature of your work; ensure that each client signs this form whichbecomes a part of the client documentation.
This does not constitute a prohibition on Zargaran using "Doctor" and her website makes clear she is DVM rather than MD. That same page reveals that Zargaran offers CEASE therapy and homeoprophylaxis.

However Minnesota has the Office of Unlicensed Complementary and Alternative Health Care Practice and has laws restricting practitioners. The Prohibited Conduct section states - 
(f) Advertising that is false, fraudulent, deceptive, or misleading. 
(g) Conduct likely to deceive, defraud, or harm the public or demonstrating a willful or careless disregard for the health, welfare, or safety of a complementary and alternative health care client; or any other practice that may create danger to any client's life, health, or safety, in any of which cases, proof of actual injury need not be established.
And - 
(w) Use of the title "doctor," "Dr.," or "physician" alone or in combination with any other words, letters, or insignia to describe the complementary and alternative health care practices the practitioner provides. 
(x) Failure to provide a complementary and alternative health care client with a recommendation that the client see a health care provider who is licensed or registered by a health-related licensing board or the commissioner of health, if there is a reasonable likelihood that the client needs to be seen by a licensed or registered health care provider.
The section on Maltreatment of Minors makes it clear that parents must seek appropriate medical treatment for children that that seeking treatment from a CAM practitioner does not absolve them of this. It also places a requirement on practitioners to report them if they don't seek appropriate treatment.

Beth Knudtsen-Spears
Knudtsen-Spears states -
Beth Knudtsen-Spears graduated from the Northwestern Academy of Homeopathy in 2002. The program required 4 years of study with the same science classes necessary for conventional nursing, and 18 months of supervised clinical practice.
Nursing in most countries is now a degree, although in some US States the Licensed Practical Nurse (LPN) vocational route exists. Claims of equivalency are far fetched.

Knudtsen-Spears offers CEASE therapy.

Knudtsen-Spears is registered with CHC and is a member of the Minnesota Homeopathic Association.

Bill Torretti
Torretti briefly mentions CEASE therapy here. He is also involved in A Promise of Health
A Promise of Health's Mission is to build and maintain Homeopathic medical programs to serve Mexico's underserved indigenous people. The rural medical program includes the service of a highly qualified homeopathic doctor and provides patients with quality homeopathic medicine, prescribed by the doctor.

Carole Neary
Neary has a page on Homeopathy and CEASE therapy. It repeats the usual claims that vaccines cause autism, spells out the acronym and has an embedded video of Smits. Neary says some odd things there -
CEASE therapists are experienced credentialed homeopaths who undergo additional training given by certified CEASE therapy instructors, to guarantee the high quality of treatment and to ensure the correct application of this method. The homeopathic practitioners are only certified as CEASE therapists after having successfully passed the final exam. They stay in contact with all other CEASE therapists around the world by an interactive forum and receive continuing supervision.
Certified by who? Supervised by who? The "credentials" of most homeopaths are meaningless. Let's be clear - CEASE training consists of a single weekend.
How do we know that the remedies are responsible for this healing? The rapid response to the isopathic remedies is so characteristic, that there can be no doubt about the existence of a link between these toxins as the cause and the development of Autism, although this is not considered as scientific proof. However, using this method Dr. Smits discovered, step by step, why autism and other behavioral problems, with their specific developmental problems, have so dramatically increased over the last thirty years. Dr Smits' body of work also made it clear that autistic children do not suffer from one single cause but from an accumulation of different causes.​
Rapid response? Many homeopaths stress in their advertising that CEASE (supposedly) takes time to work.

Neary practices some very strange therapies. Quantum Healing Hypnosis Treatment (QHHT) includes past life regression but -
Some people experience Future Lives, Parallel Lives, Lives on Other Planets, Lives in Other Dimensions. Some people visit the Spirit Side. Some people find themselves in the Akashic Records and still others visit the Temple of Healing.

Neary doesn't really explain Reconnective Healing® -
Reconnective Healing® is a remarkable healing modality that is somewhat akin to Reiki in that it is a form of energy healing. However, Reconnective Healing® consists of an energy transfer to the energetic body using light and information that is being brought forward specifically for this time in our history.
It was invented by a chiropractor Eric Pearl who seems to be associated with Gary Schwartz. It's clear that Neary believes in spirit guides and the like.

Chris Wiencke
Wiencke has a page on CEASE therapy and repeats the claim vaccines cause autism, spells out the acronym and links to the CEASE therapy website. Many of the usual claims are repeated at some length.

There is a page on homeoprophylaxis. It's ill-informed and contradictory -
Homeoprophylaxis, or HP for short, provides protection from infectious diseases to people of all ages, without side effects. For parents who wish to avoid immunization for their children, HP provides an alternative to vaccinating.
However -
An immunological response to these nosodes is to be expected as normal part of HP. The reaction demonstrates the child’s immune system is responding appropriately. Occasionally a child will react more intensely to a particular remedy in the kit. These reactions are NOT toxic reactions. They represent a clearing affect. They are typically mild and short, lasting for 24 hours or less. 
Common reactions include: sleepiness, runny nose, mild fever, lower appetite, mild cough, looser stools, and/or sweat. Not all children will react to all remedies.
These sound strangely like side-effects. Not understanding the immune system is common among homeopaths -
Experts who express concerns about vaccines postulate that vaccines target the specific defense at the expense of the general. They believe that, while vaccines may prevent a disease such as measles, they actually weaken the general defense, leaving the individual more vulnerable to other diseases. HP educates both the general and the specific systems, especially strengthening the all-important cell-mediated response.

Wiencke is based in Minnesota. She used to be a member of the Minnesota Homeopathic Association but no longer appears to be.

Cindy Heelan
Heelan is a Registered Nurse and registered with the Maine Board of Nursing. Heelan was registered as a Family Nurse Practitioner. Heelan has a page on homeoprophylaxis.

Elizabeth Sherwood
Sherwood's home page is something else. Her About Me reveals tells us -
I am a certified Homeopath, Homeoprophylaxis Supervisor, and Reiki Energy Healer. I am trained in Bach Flower Therapy, Muscle Testing, and Tapping. I also find essential oils and herbal tinctures useful in my practice. After witnessing the efficacy of homeopathic treatment, my commitment as a homeopath has grown significantly. I would like to share my acquired knowledge and assist in creating balance and harmony with the mind, body and spirit of those in search for guidance and health.
That page also features certificates from Mommy Homeopathy and FHCI. Her page on homeoprophylaxis says nothing not seen before.

Henry Kostecki
Kostecki is a veterinary surgeon practicing in California. There doesn't seem to be any disclosure of his qualifications. Consumers may be lead to believe that he is a medical doctor. Kostecki is listed on the CEASE therapy website but does not seem to make mention of CEASE on his website. He also offers a number of bizarre tests and therapies.

Jessica Levy
Levy is another veterinary surgeon but based in Minnesota. Levy does not make any offer to treat humans. Levy is listed on the CEASE therapy website but makes no mention of it on her website. 

On her Therapeutic Tools page - 
Homeoprophylaxis refers to the use of homeopathic remedies in the prevention of disease. This avoids the side effects of vaccines, while improving the dogs' health. This is appropriate for puppies who have had an initial puppy shot or none, and for adult dogs who have not had any vaccines. If your dog has been vaccinated, you will need different homeopathic remedies and detailed homeopathic case-taking to treat the effects of vaccination. 

Treat the effects of vaccination? CEASE therapy for animals? What the Minnesota  Board of Veterinary Medicine would make of homeoprophylaxis is unknown.

Joanna Daly
Daly is originally from the UK. She is a lecturer at the UK School of Homeopathy  which is a long way from California. The About Jo Daly page states she was involved in the founding of Pacific Academy of Homeopathic Medicine (defunct) and is according to School of Homeopathy's website is Dean of Education at the School of Homeopathy, New York - there doesn't seem to be a website for this. It is not the New York School of Homeopathy. Whether the School of Homeopathy ever had a physical presence in New York is unclear. Daly's LinkedIn lists her on being on the faculty of the Centre for Homeopathic Education New York. The UK Centre of Homeopathic Education (CHE) did have a New York operation but not any longer. CHE have had problems.

Daly states she is a "certified" CEASE practitioner, spells out the acronym, links to the CEASE therapy website but says little more than that.

Kanyakumari Rudrangi
Rudrangi was missed off the previous post. She is a NASH member. She also has the Indian BHMS qualification. Rudrangi does not refer to herself as a Doctor on her website. Because the BHMS qualification is unrecognised outside of the Indian sub-continent, there are questions about residence and work permits.

Rudrangi has a page on CEASE therapy. Rudrangi doesn't make the claim that vaccines cause autism but does states that medication can. Rudrangi does not spell out the acronym. She does link to the CEASE therapy website.

There is a page on homeoprophylaxis which doesn't say very much.

Kari J. Kindem
Kindem is likely in breach of many California and Federal laws. Kindem has multiple websites and is also the supplier of many homeopathic remedies and dubious therapies. On her About page -
Kari J. Kindem, CFHom, CHP, CEASE Therapist, HTMA Practitioner is a Classical Homeopath with extensive clinical experience and a full time practice with a high volume of chronic and acute care prescribing.  She is certified and professionally trained in several effective homeopathic case analysis methods including Homeopathic Facial Analysis (HFA). She has studied advanced water dosing methods of the 5th and 6th Organon which includes C potencies in water as well as LM potencies, as developed by Dr. Samuel Hahnemann, the Founder of homeopathic medicine. 
Kari has written over 23,000+ acute and chronic homeopathic prescriptions for hundreds of clients and their families all across the USA, Canada and internationally. She has worked with over 500+ cases in her practice. She has a wealth of clinical homeopathic medicine knowledge in a wide variety of diagnoses and issues. Because of her experience, her practice has a high success rate in complex cases.
Homeopaths do not have prescribing rights in California.

Kindem's websites include - 

Homeopathy for Women
AIT Institute for Auditory Integration Training
HTMA Experts - Hair Tests (website was down - archived version linked to).
Homeopathic Constitution
Homeopathy for Athletes
Homeopathic Remedies Online
Immunization Alternatives With Homeoprophylaxis
Sensory Processing Disorder Resources

The Homeopathy for Women website has a page on CEASE therapy. It is quite extensive in terms of detailing what Kindem does but whether it as per CEASE therapy training is unclear. It seems to be different from the way that some of the other homeopaths listed here practice. It's also at odds with her page on Autism Recovery but it may reflect what Kindem does before turning to CEASE which she says is for "difficult cases".

Immunization Alternatives With Homeoprophylaxis website unsurprisingly offers homeoprophylaxis services. It's somewhat misleading in places in that could be read that Kindem offers training in homeoprophylaxis - in fact it links elsewhere. Much of the content looks to be cut and pasted from elsewhere. The sheer amount of it is underwhelming. That it's badly organised doesn't help easier.

As discussed in a previous post, there are issues of the legality of supply of some of the homeopathic remedies used in CEASE and homeoprophylaxis. The Shipping Policies & Rates page reveals something interesting - 
All orders are drop shipped from various homeopathic lab or supplier directly to the customer.The shipping cost is preset, based on homeopathic provider, the product(s) shipped and/or the physical location of the homeopathic provider from where the product(s) are shipped.Remedies sold as a pill packet use medicated sucrose pellets.All of the homeopathic remedies and homeopathic products that are sold are made from reputable homeopathic labs in the USA, Europe and New Zealand. Homeopathic remedies must comply with FDA labeling requirements. All remedies are manufactured under strict Homeopathic Pharmacopeia guidelines.
Drop-shipping means that Kindem does not stock or handle the products herself but she is advertising them. The legalities are complicated. This guide produced by VISA is helpful -
A merchant is an Internet pharmacy if it sells, dispenses or markets, or facilitates the selling, dispensing or marketing of, a prescription or pharmacy-only medicinein response to orders placed over the Internet.
Merchants that facilitate the sale of prescription or pharmacy-only drugs, but do not directly ship the drugs themselves, sometimes claim that they are exempt from having to comply with regulatory requirements because they are not a pharmacy, but merely an affiliate marketer. For example, a merchant may state that they only operate the website and are not personally responsible for shipping the drugs. Or, they may argue that they are not licensed as pharmacies, therefore they cannot be called an Internet pharmacy. These arguments should be rejected. Any facilitation of prescription drug or pharmacy-only drug ordersconducted over the Internet should cause you to view the merchant as an Internet pharmacy.
California law may be different but that is unlikely. The California State Board of Pharmacy will be asked about this. 

Kathryn Z. Berg
Berg is based in Minnesota. Berg has a page on CEASE therapy. She makes some extraordinary claims.
With CEASE Therapy Your Child Will Be:
More communicative
Able to interact more with others
Less sensitive to noise
Willing to eat a wider variety of foods
Sleeping more hours per night (both parent and child)
 More regular in their digestive tract
 Able to pay attention
More affectionate
Less anxious
Able to tell you what is wrong
Less rigid
More tolerant of ambiguity
Less violent
Easier to parent
Berg also says says that CEASE will bring improvements in a few days. Oh dear. Berg spells out the acronym, links to the CEASE therapy website but again, curiously no claims that vaccines cause autism. Lyme disease and amalgam fillings are mentioned.

Many people are torn about their decision to vaccinate themselves or their children.  On the one hand, the medical profession utilizes fear, uncertainty and doubt to frighten people into get themselves or their children vaccinated.  On the other hand, there are many side effects of vaccinations and questions about whether they are even effective, not to mention the toxic ingredients such as mercury, formaldehyde and other adjuvants.
The irony of this statement is likely lost on Berg. She offers a shingles clinic and an influenza clinic (presumably offering homeoprophylaxis. There is a blogpost on Shingles which is bizarre. The epidemiology of shingles is complicated. It's caused by re-activation of the virus that causes chickenpox. If you've never had chickenpox, you can't develop shingles. Having had chickenpox before 18 months of age has increased risks as is immuno-suppression and age. It seems that exposure to children with chickenpox may have some protective effect. Unsurprisingly, because of this, a vaccine has been developed (or rather a higher dose of the chickenpox vaccine is used). Berg says -
But why are so many people getting Shingles?  Does anyone in the 40 – 60 age group remember anyone, such as your parents or grandparents, getting shingles when you were young?  Probably not.  Since the Chicken Pox vaccine has reduced the number of wild chicken pox cases, adults are not getting exposed to the Herpes Zoster virus when their children and grandchildren.  It is believed that by being exposed to Chicken Pox, the immune system gets reactivated, thus the specific response to the potentially active virus in the body is stronger. But without the wild chicken pox virus, the strengthening of the immune system simply cannot happen. 
Notice I am referring to the wild chicken pox virus.  Most people recognize that the Chicken Pox vaccine is not particularly effective.  Many children get chicken pox anyway, but it is a weakened case of it and they perhaps only get a few small pox.  Or what comes around does not last long enough to get much exposure.
One of the key things about shingles is that contracting a disease does not necessarily provide protection against future infection. It's a more complicated picture than 

Berg is recommended by Moms Using Homeopathy closed Facebook group (the associated website is sparse but has links to podcasts). As the group is closed, it's not known what goes on in there but some members are homeopaths. With 12,000 odd members, it has considerable reach and if promotion of anti-vaccination goes on by Minnesota homeopaths, let alone homeoprophylaxis...

Lilly Partha
Partha is a licensed acupuncturist in Illinois. Illinois law does allow the use of the use of various titles - 
Sec. 50. Practice prohibited. Unless he or she has been issued, by the Department, a valid, existing license as an acupuncturist under this Act, no person may use the title and designation of "Acupuncturist", "Licensed Acupuncturist", "Certified Acupuncturist", "Doctor of Acupuncture and Chinese Medicine", "Doctor of Acupuncture and Oriental Medicine", "Doctor of Acupuncture", "Oriental Medicine Practitioner", "Licensed Oriental Medicine Practitioner", "Oriental Medicine Doctor", "Licensed Oriental Medicine Doctor", "C.A.", "Act.", "Lic. Act.", "Lic. Ac.", "D.Ac.", "DACM", "DAOM", or "O.M.D." either directly or indirectly, in connection with his or her profession or business. No person licensed under this Act may use the designation "medical", directly or indirectly, in connection with his or her profession or business. Nothing shall prevent a physician from using the designation "Acupuncturist".
Partha has a page on CEASE therapy but her page on Autism Treatment says she is no longer accepting autistic patients. The latter contains -
I was trained and certified in the DAN (Defeat Autism Now) protocols before they stopped the certification process. I practiced as a DAN doctor for two years. The model is simple and very close to traditional medical practice. You get blood tests (quite a few, in the case of autism), see what's missing, and supply the deficient vitamins and minerals, usually compounded specifically for the patient. At the end of two years, after treating my son and a good number of other patients, I came to the following conclusions: (1) it didn't work, (2) it's very expensive for the patients. Even though it would have made more sense financially for me to continue being a DAN doctor, my conscience wouldn't allow it, and I changed the methods in my practice. I still use some elements of DAN, and recommend supplements as necessary, but do not focus on them.
This article on DAN! is long but worth reading.

Mary Baenen
On the page Vaccine Injury Baenan doesn't use the term "CEASE therapy", prefering "Homeopathic Detox" but it includes a graphic from Smits' book and elsewhere she links to the CEASE therapy website. 
The Goal in homeopathic treatment is to stimulate the immune system to work out all the different diseases which have become stuck in the system. At various times in treatment different methods may be initiated. The ongoing consult of the homeopath is necessary to work through the layers. Signs that demonstrate the immune system is working better to clear the vaccines include: the development of fevers, rashes, discharges,vomiting, diarrhea or other unburdening cleansing processes. These processes must not be hindered by medication aimed at suppressing the symptoms. If these are used the case will relapse and take longer to resolve. Each disease in its own time will be cleared from the system. As the immune system becomes more in balance it will be able to clear heavy metal toxicity, and allergic symptoms will diminish, cognitive function will increase. The longer a child stays in homeopathic treatment the greater promise of returning to their full potential in health.
Diseases? Surely energetic imprints of toxins? Baenen is clearly advocating neglect of children. 

Baenen has a page on homeoprophylaxis. She is a member of FHCI.

Nirupama Desai
Desai has the Indian BHMS qualification. She also has MD (Hom) which is another Indian qualification. It is NOT a medical qualification. Whether or not it confuses consumers is unclear. Desai does not use the title Doctor.

Desai has a page on CEASE. It looks to have be cut and pasted from the CEASE website.

Shiba Surti
Surti is another with the BHMS qualification.

Surti has a page on CEASE therapy

I work with children who are our “our future” and support them in their growth using the most natural, healthy and pure way.
When I see people suffering around me especially kids who have behavioral issues, autistic kids, special needs children, it saddens me. It saddens me even more when people around them do not understand these kids. Such situations make me feel helpless. If only there was a way to connect with these people and help them.
This heavy heart and search for hope led me to become a CEASE therapist. This training was an eye opener for me. I could see “hope for change” and a doorway for the parents or people who cannot be helped by conventional medicine. I have seen in my practice and my colleagues practice how CEASE has helped hundreds of families. It is really fulfilling to see the sparkle in the eyes of the children who were in a state where they could not feel emotions like everyone else does. I am overjoyed when parents come and tell me their child said “I love you Mom” and “I love you Dad” for the first time and really meant it.
Autistic children do feel emotions like everyone else. 

Surti has a page on homeoprophylaxis.

Sima Ash
Ash has written articles promoting CEASE therapy that have appeared on anti-vaccination websites such as Age of Autism, Thinking Mom's Revolution and Generation Rescue. Ash has lots of content related to CEASE on her website but this is the starting point. Ash seems to combine CEASE with other bizarre treatments such as REBA machine and associated homeopathic remedies.

Ash can be seen in this video -

At one point, it appears that Ash had a falling out with other CEASE practitioners. There are closed Facebook groups where homeopaths interact with patients and each other. At one point some of these groups would not allow Ash's patients to join but this may have changed.

Ash is based in California. There is a disclosure buried away on the website that she is not a medical practitioner. What the law isn't clear about is how prominent that disclosure needs to be.

Tania Dilmani
Tania Dilmani is a Celebrity Homeopath, Author & Speaker!
Some words have different meanings in homeopathy. Perhaps "celebrity" is one of them. She is hardly a well known name in US homeopathy. But look, here is a photo of her with Ricki Lake!


Dilmani is also a doula. Doulas are permitted in California but not regulated. It's not clear if Dilmani has had any training. That page also reveals that she is a CEASE practitioner but she doesn't seem to make very much of it. What she is big on is homeoprophylaxis

Dilmani runs Mommy Homeopathy. There used to be a website but it's dead. Dilmani has a number of websites and Facebook pages/groups. Mommy Homeopathy now uses the website. It seems to be about selling courses in becoming a "Mommy Certified Homeopath". Dilmani's qualifications in homeopathy are unknown but were sufficient for FHCI and the CEASE therapy outfit to accept her on their training. Kate Birch of FHCI appears on the website. Dilmani makes much of the potential to make "six figures". Homeopathy is rarely lucrative. It seems rather implausible.

Teresa Stewart
Stewart says she is on the Board of the Minnesota Homeopathic Association but isn't anymore. She's not updated her website. It looks as if Stewart was going to write about CEASE therapy but never got round to it. She did get round writing one on homeoprophylaxis and another on Vaccines and Immunity.

Ursula Dobelmann
Dobelman is on the board of FHCI. She has a page on homeoprophylaxis. She has a video -

That page links to another.

If vaccines aren’t safe wouldn’t the news report it?There will NOT be any information on TV or Radio, in Newspapers or Magazines about safety issues with vaccines because all of these media outlets rely heavily on the advertising money from the manufacturers of the vaccines. Please be diligent about your research into vaccines. In fact the supreme court has ruled that vaccines have unavoidable adverse side effects, and that is why ‘we’ have to protect the manufacturers.
There has been a long history of media inspired health scares. The Supreme Court of the United States case is Bruesewitz v. Wyeth. The meaning of "unavoidably unsafe" is explained here. There's also a misunderstanding of what the National Childhood Vaccine Injury Act is.
Let’s change the conversation from being pro-vaccination or against vaccination to: “How can we keep children healthy, safe and prevent childhood diseases?” Let’s talk about Homeoprophylaxis!
There is an alternative to vaccination. Homeopathy has been healing and preventing disease safely and effectively for over 200 years without any toxic side effects.
Our goal with Homeoprophylaxis (HP) is to provide immune system education for children that are not vaccinated. However HP may be applied to healthy children that are partially vaccinated or fully vaccinated. In some cases the immune system has to be re-balanced with homeopathic remedies before beginning HP.
There is more. There are links to anti-vaccination groups and videos. It is clear that Dobelman is anti-vaccination. There's no pretence.
